Today's network marketing tip has to do with responsibility. Sometimes, after we have been with a mlm company for awhile and are not achieving the results we desire, we may want to blame our sponsor.
True, our sponsors do need to make sure we get started on the right foot, but is it really fair to blame them if we seem to be failing once we're trained?
In today's post, Tom Schreiter candidly shares where the responsibility really lies as rep.
Enjoy his wise words of wisdom. Make sure you also check out the free ebook in the business resource section, "Success in 10 Steps" by Michael Dlouhy, a book highly recommended by Tom. It too, will help you become more successful in mlm if you follow the 10 steps.
I Believe In You
“Be A Mentor With A Servant’s Heart"
Don't blame your sponsor ... yet by Tom Schreiter
When we join network marketing, it is important to understand the responsibilities of our sponsor, and the responsibilities we have to ourselves.
Our sponsor is responsible to give us things such as:
* A few "ice breakers" to help us easily get presentations.
* A "One-Minute Presentation" so we can look professional in explaining our business.
* Some opening sentences to prospect our warm market without risking objections.
* A fool-proof sentence or two to get appointments.
If our sponsor gives us a few of the basic skills above, then what are some of our responsibilities?
* To consistently prospect to build our business.
* To invite prospects to meetings, three-way calls, two-on-one appointments, etc.
* To study and attend trainings to learn the skills to be a professional network marketer.
* To take personal responsibility for our success.
It is a two-way street. We can't expect our sponsor to do it all for us.
Once our sponsor gives us some of the basic skills, it is up to us. We can whine and complain that we have no one to talk to, that no one will listen to us, that we don't know what to do ... but it is our business.
Our choice to abandon responsibility and to invest in self-sabotaging thoughts is our decision, not our sponsor's decision.
We will have to take the initiative to learn and solve these problems in our business. It's not our sponsor's responsibility to make us successful.
