True leaders are the Mentors with the servant’s heart. It’s never about the money. If the focus is not continually on money this equals no greed. A good tip to follow is to build people, the focus is then on the person not the money.
It is worth while for your success in building a downline that people are people. They are not a number. They have goals, dreams & desires. Network marketing is not a sales business. Network marketing is a teaching & mentoring business. So the track record & attitude of leadership is critical.
When you’ve joined a business and someone calls you, telling you to make a list of your friends & family, I can promise you that they do not have a system. “Friends & family” is what has been instructed to our downline for the last 50 years, and that is the reason for such high failure rates in MLM. Most “Friends and Family” do not know how to spell MLM so why ruin a good relationship over something that they do not know or understand?
You’ve got to find people who will volunteer, looking for you and/or your product, your service, your opportunity.
Too often, somebody calls you up, pitching you. They don’t even know who you are. They don’t care who you are. They don’t care anything about you.
I’ve heard certain network marketing leaders say, “It’s a relationship business.” And many of these people have never built a relationship with anybody. Nobody on their team would want to go on a one-month cruise with them.
Some “Leaders” Don’t Even Want To Be Around Their People At Convention!
Why? It’s all about the greed & the ego. The fancy watch, fancy jewellery, fancy suit, exotic vacations, fast cars, being the superstar, all that stuff.
Do they ever help the person who’s been “crushed” by life? Do they ever pay for the next guy going through the toll gate? Do they ever just freely give their time to mentor others, expecting nothing in return? No, they don’t.
Instead, it’s always about greed & ego, me, me, me. It’s never about the other person.
You truly have to care about people. And then you won’t have the greed and the ego. And THAT is the kind of person who can build huge in network marketing, because you will attract people just like you!
