Today's network marketing tip has to do with leadership; how to find leaders. After all, everybody knows in mlm, if you have about 3-4 people on your front line who are on fire and building big, you will receive a nice check. The question of the day is, where can these people be found?
The truth is, very few people will find an Art Jonak, Michael Dlouhy, Tim Sales, Randy Gage, or a Tom Schreiter right away. True leaders develop because of us. Even the Tom's, Art's, and Michael's did not start off hugely successful. It took time and having to learn skills.
While its true it's up to us to build leaders, we also don't want to waste time helping people who don't really want it. How can we tell whom we should work with?
In a recent article in Tom Schreiter's "Big Al Report", he shared the importance of taking people through what he calls the "leadership test". If you don't know what that is, read on. Following Tom's advice will save you lot of time. So read and enjoy!
Also, remember to download the free ebook called "Success in 10 Steps" in the resource section. This resource is another must have tool in your mlm resource box which will save you years of failure and frustration as you look to create additional income from home.

“Be A Mentor With A Servant’s Heart"
So why the Leadership Test?
I wasted a lot of time in my first 11 years of the business trying to build leaders. I wasn't very efficient. I tried to teach and help anyone who wanted to learn.
But there is an old saying, "Don't believe what people say, only believe what people do." I bet my mother told me something like that, but I didn't listen.
After 11 years of working hard to build leaders, I met a man named Tom Paredes, who said, "Before you invest time in teaching someone to be a leader, give them a test." If they past the test, only then do you start teaching them the step-by-step skills.
Ouch! And he was so right. From that point on, building leaders was a lot easier. We have to be open to new ideas and new ways to build. Even today, I get the best ideas from others. I take leaders to lunch and listen to their best techniques, I go to conferences, and I constantly test new and better ways.
I feel sad when I hear a distributor say, "Well, I stopped learning in high school, and I certainly don't want to start up that learning thing again."
The bottom line? Build leaders, and service distributors. Huge difference in how fast you will build your team.
New book on leadership now in paperback also.
Lots of great emails from networkers who are reading, "How to Build Network Marketing Leaders Volume One: Step-by-Step Creation of MLM Professionals." Why?
Apparently, there really isn't another network marketing book specifically on the step-by-step methods of taking a new distributor, and then molding that distributor into a self-sufficient leader.
When I started network marketing, I had no idea what to do to build better leaders. So I wasted a lot of time telling them to be positive, write their goals, get motivated, etc. But hey, when we start our business, we just don't know what we don't know. We learn as we go.
Jerry Scribner told me how he was going to use the book. He was going to use the leadership book as the leadership test. This is embarrassing. I didn't even think of that.
Here are the links to the paperback editions. Unfortunately, not available in all countries yet. Amazon is moving slowly on many countries:
