Here are my thoughts. Over the years I’ve been fortunate
enough to build several organizations from scratch.
I’ve done very well each time.
I used to always build with one eye in the back of my
head looking for the exit when things started slowing
down..which it always did lol.
Eventually, everything slows down. It’s a law of nature.
What goes up… must come down.
It happens in large corporate America with companies
like Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Amazon, eBay, Restaurants,
We sometimes forget the stories of these giants in their
first 2-3 years. Sometimes in their first 5-7 years, some major
setback or slowdown happened.
No difference in the world of MLM.
The only difference with EACH Business or Organization
that slows down… is what each person does WHEN
the “slow down season” hits.
My entire perspective changed when I sat down with
a very very successful Network Marketer at an industry
wide convention in Las Vegas.
I told him that it looked like things were slowing down a little bit
in Business for me.
He asked me how long I had actually been working and building my
Business on a high level (level 10 type activity).
I told him I’d been in the company for about 1 year. He laughed out loud.
He literally “LOL’d”.
He then asked me something that really shook my core.
“Elias, out of that short 1 year that you’ve been in the company, how
much of that time would you say you have spent actually recruiting
and hard core building?”
I answered “100% honest… probably about 6 of those months.”
He laughed even harder.
I started laughing just to calm the awkwardness that I was feeling.
I mean, this was starting to get way out of hand i’m thinking.
This dude is laughing about my Business. lol.
He turns to me and says…
“Bro, Business hasn’t slowed down. You are still Building!
until you’ve done 2-3 solid “90 Day Runs” and BUILT in the
trenches with each spike of growth as you work deep THEN
you have built up the right to look at your Business and
assess whether or not Business is even remotely STARTING
to slow down!”
He then went on to tell me that I will usually get to that point
in about 18-24 months. And that is AFTER heavy, heavy building.
This was an advanced, aggressive conversation between to
industry leaders who have built on larger levels but it also
applies to EVERY SINGLE person who aspires to be an
entrepreneur in the Network Marketing profession.
You can’t really talk about Business slowing down unless
your Business really even started moving yet.
You can’t really talk about the wave dying out when you
are still in the process of catching it!
You can’t really talk about having to re-build a wall that
was never there!
And… you can’t talk about having to re-build a starter
team when you haven’t even gotten out of practice!!
