Ohhh today will be fun, we are going to do a little chat about network marketing... I know, I know,if you've never done one; or more importantly you've never done the right one you think they are the worst idea ever right?
I mean scam or pyramid scheme right?!?! Nope, would you be surprised to know that I've been in one of those mlm's for over three years now? Guess what it's not? a scam! Guess what it is? work!
I really believe that's why people think they are schemes, usually their friends friend got in at the "right time" and then in 6 months they were bringing in 10k per month and now they vacation all they time and buy all the things... They make it seem so easy right? So when you jump in with both feet and two weeks pass and you aren't any richer yet you're like wth....! This is crap and probably a scam too, I should jump over here to what my best friends sister is doing she's on "the ground floor" ill have better luck there... I like to call these people serial mlmers, don't be them, seriously... You have to work for these things to work!
Oh wow I got seriously off track, whoops are you still there? Anyway we can discuss mlm's later we were supposed to be talking leadership....
Ok, let's talk about leadership...! If you have sold even one kit you are a leader. If you've sold one wrap, one mascara, one bracelet, one weight loss pill, one pan, ready or not you are a leader. You are building your team.
You friend, you have something to offer your team. There is only one of you and finding your voice is so very important... These people chose to sign up with you, to buy from you..
So what is leadership? It's an action right? The action of leading a group or individual... Is it hard? Yes!!! Is it worth it? YES! Will you have to work? Yes!
We are going to face all kinds of trials and conflicts but it's how we handle them that sets us apart as leaders... I came across this quote a while ago and its actually my screen saver
"Being positive in a negative situation is not naive. It's leadership."
Let that sink in.... I am negative by nature, it's easier right? It's easier to complain then to fix, but that's not what leaders do. Not only that but when I'm negative it hurts me, it hurts my business, it hurts my health.... It lowers my frequency level by 10.... I don't have time for that guys and neither do you...
What if we choose to take action and be positive every.single.day... How much different would our lives look? How much different would our business look? How much different would our relationships look?
Be a leader, chose to work today, chose to grow your business and make a difference in your life. You are the only one that can make you do it!
