When I first started in network marketing, I was told something that really bothered me…
It was at a nuts n’ bolts training meeting held by a successful distributor in my upline, a wealthy physician with his own private practice, who’d also made over 2 million dollars in network marketing.
He obviously knew what it took to create success in life, or so I thought.
But when I got to his house, a big house in a nice neighborhood, and sat through his training session, I was extremely disappointed.
Basically, for an hour I sat in his living room as he drew on a whiteboard, and listened to him give a big spiel that was mostly “fluff.”
Worst of all, he didn’t teach us anything which remotely resembled a strategy or skill set I could use.
Instead, he kept saying…
This business, it’s not selling, it’s sharing.
You’re simply ‘sharing’ the business with people.
You don’t need to sell; you just need to share these meetings with more people.
This didn’t make sense to me, because he was basically saying that network marketing is a game of chance and didn’t require any skills.
Think about it…
As a physician, he didn’t get “lucky” in his practice. He didn’t get lucky, when he graduated from med school and got licensed in the state of California to practice medicine.
No, he worked really hard, and he learned processes and skills for everything he did, which is how he became a doctor, and eventually became an entrepreneur by opening up his own practice.
That wasn’t easy.
As an engineer, I knew that people in my profession certainly didn’t become successful by luck.
No matter what profession you’re in, I’m sure you’ll agree that…
People Become Successful by Learning Skills and Getting Good at Them!
Luck has very little to do with it.
Even though I didn’t know much about network marketing back then, I knew his path couldn’t have been easy…and his success definitely wasn’t random.
After that presentation, I craved for somebody to show me a specific process that would help me build my business in a way that made sense.
I wanted the network marketing success this particular doctor had and I wanted to know step-by-step, how he did it.
My frustration with the lack of answers, is what led me to eventually go online and find network marketing mentors who used the Internet to build large teams, using a set of strategies, which they called “attraction marketing.”
Along with giving me strategies, attraction marketing solved the #1 problem in my network marketing business—a lack of fresh and new prospects for my business.
And I was able to find them, in a predictable way, without bugging friends and family OR cold prospecting strangers on the streets.
But more importantly, from my mentors, I learned that success in network marketing (or any business) isn’t about luck, or chance, or any roll of the dice.
It’s strategic, skill based and can be done in a predictable way—i.e. it’s about doing the right things in the right sequence, to achieve a specific result.
Now, what I want to share with you in this article are…
5 Proven Strategic Steps I Used to Guarantee My Success…
…and can help you guarantee yours!
Essentially, these 5 things, when done in the right order, can literally create “push button” money — which offers you the ability to recruit with a few strokes of the keyboard on your computer.
Now, I know that sounds a bit “hypey,” but let me prove what I’m saying to you…
Just like any profession, in network marketing you need to learn specific skills. And you need to treat what you are learning with the exact same seriousness that a doctor or engineer treats the skills of their trade.
