Are we getting tired of monkeying around yet or what?
So at the conclusion of yesterday’s segment, I told you we would hold off on this one in particular because it involved one of the monkeys that used to cling to my back tenaciously.
But… without any further ado, let us get right down to Butt Monkey number five…
Well Dave, I might consider it But…
But #5: “Well Dave I might consider it But… All my family neighbors and friends will think I’ve gone Crazy!!
You see this is one concern that I can well understand. As a success mentor, coach, and online author, with my business, my reputation, and my ego at stake, I was at first reluctant to embrace network marketing.
I was skeptical about it for myself let alone the thought of actually endorsing it to anyone, standing behind it, or staking my reputation on it.
But after careful consideration, research, and care I decided to lean heavily upon the experience and wisdom of those with a far greater business, financial, and success skills than myself. I turned to my trusted mentors, the true giants of the business, financial, and success arena.
And after listening to what they had to say about wave 3 type network marketing business ventures, I had to reconsider my own beliefs.
After I heard what these top notch business, financial, and success masters had to say I realized I’d be pretty foolish not to get involved in today’s Network Marketing opportunities.
But even then I was still thrown off by the negative associations I had with much of the Network Marketing vocabulary and its lingo.
Just the word itself, “Marketing”… I mean what does that sound like to you? SELLING right? Well very few people today want to sell anything to anybody, anywhere, and this fact alone keeps most people away.
But Network Marketing isn’t about selling; it’s about sharing what you believe in. Sharing solutions and things you are passionate about with others. We’re actually far more like problem solvers, helpful friend, and consultants than anything else.
Then there is the way you get paid in network marketing. It’s called a commission check right? But doesn’t that sound like selling again?
But in reality I do very little selling at all. And that is the beauty of it. With the right company, the right products, the right system, tools and leadership behind you, you don’t have to do any selling really. You let the system work for you instead. You don’t have to be a salesperson to succeed at all.
And here’s another word for you…”Sponsor.” Now I don’t know about you but to me once upon a time that sounded like some kind of financial commitment to some person or some-thing that I just didn’t want to be involved in. I didn’t care for the sound of it at all.
But really a better word for it would be teacher, mentor, friend, or trainer, because you educate, you help others, and you share something that’s good, and your training is in something you believe in, not some made up pack of lies.
Instead it’s something you can feel good about and can stand behind.
And here’s one for you…When you join a Network Marketing Company you become what’s called a “distributor.” But the truth is in today’s network marketing companies you don’t really distribute anything. The company does all that for you.
You just share your experience with interested people it’s really that simple if you want it to be, and plenty of great businesses have been built and continue to be built around this foundation alone.
Now I know what you’re thinking… Of course there are ways to turbo charge this whole process put it on steroids and blow the roof off of your success. And you are right the training, tools, and learning curve, are more substantial but then so are the results.
But the point is most of the major successes and huge incomes you have heard about in this industry were built upon this simple foundation, and if that is all you ever want to do you can build a business that way too.
Personally I like horsepower and prefer to blow the doors off of things, take it to the next level, be on the cutting edge and push the envelope. But that’s just me.
My real point is that I never could have gotten to this point in my development with a monkey on my back.
Tune in tomorrow and we’ll see if we can’t finish this monkey business and move on to something bigger and better.
