I’ve often thought about the dynamics of events like the No Excuses Summit because since I attended it last year, it’s really changed my perception on the industry and how I market my business.
I’ve forgotten how much I actually paid to get into that event in 2010. However, I do know that I made tens of thousands of dollars within just a few short months after attending that event. It was directly related to the information that I obtained that I wouldn’t have been able to get at some regular corporate sponsored MLM company convention.
Because there is too much ego and “my way or the highway” leaders in every company at every convention. What do I mean by that?
Well, it’s an unsaid rule that you don’t want to offend other peoples group while you have the opportunity to speak from the stage at large events like a company convention. If you say something wrong or “against the grain” there will be hell to pay in the aftermath.
At events like the No Excuses Summit and a few others that are similar in nature, the people speaking from the stage and in the breakout sessions don’t give a crap about your upline or other upline leaders in the crowd. They tell you straight up how it is because it’s RAW info.
They don’t care if your feelings are hurt or if you are offended by them teaching a certain business building tactic that made them millions last year.
A few interesting people might go home and cry because they don’t agree with what’s being taught while the rest of us will continue to rake in terrible amounts of business these spineless distributors are leaving on the table.
Because of the fact that I’m a global top producer in my company, I sometimes get caught up in the “pleasing everybody” mode sometimes and catch myself telling people things they WANT to hear instead of telling them what they NEED to hear.
I have an email list much larger than my actual downline in my primary company. It’s sad sometimes to think that I can be more honest in building a successful Network Marketing business with my general opt-in list versus distributors in my actual MLM organization.
It’s mind bending at times.
Sometimes people get a little shaken up because I don’t hide the truth about building a successful Network Marketing business.
I sometimes ruffle some feathers amongst people in my own business. oh well.
I hated it when I found out that there was no tooth fairy either.
(I always wondered where that little fairy held all those rotten teeth and large sums of money.)
Let me ask you…
When something happens to your business (god forbid) and your organization gets wiped out, what will you take with you?
If you are like most people, you will take with you a very big chip on your shoulder and a lot of hatred, depression, and regret about the situation you ended up in. Most people quit the industry all together.
Here’s the tough question:
What type of knowledge do you have right now at your fingertips that would allow you to make money without your MLM business?
Here’s the even tougher question:
What type of knowledge do you have right now at your fingertips that would enable you to build a strong RESIDUAL INCOME without your MLM business?
…just some things to think about. Get to the “outsider” events, educate yourself and take the coaching & mentoring if one of a leader in your business is offering it.
Forget about all the nonsense and just get out there and kill it in your business.
