Successful Network Marketing – Being a Mentor with a Servant’s Heart

By now others in the MLM industry have come to know “Mentoring for Free” as a community of international volunteers.  Whose purpose is to help anyone in any company succeed in Network Marketing by providing education, coaching, mentoring, and support within a mastermind environment for free.  We are in it to create successful network marketing  by being “A Mentor with a servant’s heart.”

Understand…Failure and frustration is not your fault!  When you can grasp that Network Marketing is a people helping people business and having a mentor who is having success show you the skills that are working for them TODAY, then the frustration and failure begins to be alleviated as you accept their guidance.

You may love your product, your company even the people on your team; if you are not finding the success you thought you would have by now, then you need to do something about it.  

Unfortunately there are  those who have an issue with the mentality of helping others for free; without an agenda.  It is regrettable that only a small handful of individuals will understand and embrace the concept of “Being a Mentor with a Servant’s Heart”.

Many ask why  we do this for free and are concerned that they will be manipulated in some way?  What would be the benefit to a mentor to just sponsor someone who is only curios about the industry of MLM or having to carry this prospect across the finish line?

It is because we have been there. More than once!   The mentorship will provide you with a very in-depth look at Network Marketing and just how ruthless it can be at times.

Having a heart for others does not give evidence that you can never say “NO”.  We are not here as mentors to be used by anyone. In some circumstances it is necessary to say “NO”.  Sometimes “tough love” will create in the frustrated network marketer a moment of enlightenment which causes a time of soul searching.  In time this  person may come back to you with a full understanding of just what you are working to accomplish with them. The ultimate goal is to create successful network marketing practices while building their own network marketing empire.

It is the duty of a mentor to help empower people. To help them find their own self-worth and strength from within themselves. It is the mentor’s duty to teach them skills they may not have; which are required for success in their online business.

To create successful network marketing, mentorship goes two ways. The  mentor must possess integrity and be ethical while there has to be a student who wants help, is coachable, is willing  to do whatever it takes and makes sacrifices to finally find success.

For some frustrated network marketers they need to “toast” a little longer; until they see that the MLM industry has “toasted” them on both sides and they feel they can no longer go it alone. 

For us being a mentor with a servant’s heart; the giving is natural. It is heart warming to see people grow before your eyes and improve their skills.  This leads to building a successful network marketing business.  Ultimately leaving them in a position to be a mentor to others; allowing them to have a “heart” as well.

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. ~ Joel A. Barker      Be a mentor and be the change that needs to take place in this industry.

  1. Hi Dave and Darlene,

    I like the sound of that… “We are in it to create successful network marketing by being ‘A Mentor with a servant’s heart.'” And I agree that helping others become successful is a generous and wonderful thing to do. I’m surprised, in your field, that not all Network Marketing professionals don’t understand and grasp your concept. By helping others, aren’t you also, in the end, helping yourself? (Not to lessen what you’re saying – I admire your stance.) Even when your mentoring helps someone in somebody elses downline, you at least are building great karma (and recognition). Where could you go wrong?

    Sweet post! Best wishes to you both.

  2. Hi Deb, thank you for dropping by to leave your thoughts for us. We appreciate them.

    Yes it is a really big shame that more in our field do not catch on that when they help others with no agenda in mind that it will reward them far more in the end. By helping others we DO help ourselves. Doing this “mentoring” for anyone…there is no way to go wrong at all.

    Again Deb thanks for your comments

  3. There are network marketers who will sit on the other side of the fence (usually those who are struggling and are desperate for a sale) who are willing to chase after you and to do everything for you, in order to make the sale. Ideally, your mentor should strike a balance between the two. At the end of the day, this business is all about taking full responsibility for your own results. I’ve seen people join up with the top income earners in the industry, expecting to get the same results, only to fail miserable. And I’ve seen people join the worst possible mentors you could imagine, and then go on to achieve astounding results. So never make the mistake of believing that your results will be determined by anyone but yourself.

    Having said that, a mentor who offers great support can give you a real head start, provided you act on whatever advice you receive. Ideally, its good to be able to touch base with your mentor once every two days in your first 2 weeks, and then perhaps twice a week thereafter. A good mentor will give you a set of tasks to complete (eg. in your first two days, you may be told to learn everything you can about how the business works and the comp. plan) and then once you’ve completed those tasks, you can contact your mentor for the next ones.

    When choosing a mentor, it’s best to have a look around at the different options- don’t necessarily choose the first person who you contact, or who contacts you. Your mentor can be your most valuable asset when you’re starting out in network marketing, so have these questions nearby, and be choosy! After all, it’s your money at stake.


  4. Hey Mike, thanks for stopping by and leaving a very delightful comment. You mentioned some very important facts that I did not touch on in the post, thank you for that. Very important to realize that your success or failure is neither because of your mentor but in direct relation to what you do or do not do as asked. I have seen where someone being sponsored actually out sells and recruits their own sponsor. How cool is that!!
