Network Marketing Success
I just completed a brilliant webinar called The “5 Pillars” to 400,000 Distributors & $15,000,000 in Commissions – with Eric Worre. Jonathan Budd interviewed Eric Worre which was a real treat. I have heard Eric interview many other top leaders in the Network Marketing Profession but never heard him interviewed before.
Eric Worre runs Network Marketing Pro where he gives much value to the industry. He is Network Marketing Success! If you are not on his email list you are missing some great information. The stats in the webinar title say it all for his success.
Eric shared his 5 Pillars of Belief (basically for success in Network Marketing). Here they are in my note form:
Network Marketing Success
#Pillar 1 – Network Marketing isn’t perfect it’s just better.
Here Eric went through the alternatives and downside of each. He summarized them as;
- Blue collar worker – not a path to wealth and hard physically.
- White collar worker – he talked about the politics in the corporate world. If people choose to excel they then usually have someone trying to bring them down. Most people therefore “hide”.
- Sales – hard work
- Traditional Business owner – the business ends up owning them (and I can vouch for that one!)
- Investor – you need capital and wisdom. There are risks.
Eric said something at this point that so resonated with me – it was one of those things I really heard and new it to be true for me. He said “the catch to Network Marketing is we need to be able to deal with the loss of social esteem in the beginning. That there are ignorant people out there that will think less of us for joining” He said this changes as we have success but some people cannot hang in there for that time. Wow that got me!
Jonathan Budd had some input here and said he believes the tide is turning and that in 5 years’ time it will be “un-cool’ not be in network marketing – to quote JB he said if you are not in MLM you will be seen as a “dork” – I love it! Oh to Network Marketing Success!
#Pillar 2 – If you are going to be involved decide to be a Professional – Go Pro
Go Pro is Eric’s trademark statement. He finishes each of his shows with that.
He said that we are the smart ones who have unplugged from the matrix.
His advice was to learn the profession. Even if you can only work 5 – 10 hours a week on your business that is where you are building your future. The JOB 40 hours pays the bills.
#Pillar 3 – No one owes you Anything
Develop an independent mindset – I am in charge and I will build a business. He talked about taking responsibility for your success, learning, and attitude. He said the biggest benefit of network marketing is who we have to become to succeed.
#Pillar 4 – You must focus on mastering the profession’s skills
We often hear our “why” is everything but Eric said a “why” without skills will not get you there. Nor will big dreams get you there. You need the skills.
He said the skills are the simplest set compared to some professions and they offer the highest return when you master them.
He summarized them as
- Find people to talk to
- Inviting skills
- Present to them in effective ways that can be duplicated
- Helping people get started skills
Eric advises people that for their first year in network marketing they focus on developing the skills.
#Pillar 5 – What is of value to create takes time to create
People too often expect quick results in network marketing. Eric’s advice it that we must give it time as it is worth it. He tells people to aim for the following based on starting part time and working 10 hours a week.
Year 1 – to become profitable and competent
Year 3– replace current income
Year 5– become a 6 (or more) figure earner
Year 7 – be world class. He defined world class as someone who could sponsor someone every day if they choose. That they could land in a different country knowing no one and in a short time build a strong organization.
In summary he said it is worth it. When done right the profession offers financial freedom, lifestyle, the ability to help others and more. Treat it like the profession it is!
