If You Do Quit, I Pray This Doesn’t Happen To You…
Why almost losing my sight made me realize how important residual income is
I feel a little uncomfortable about this (especially the first photo below), but I want to share a story that happened to me recently and how this ties in to the importance of continuing to work hard towards that goal of residual income.
“We need to do emergency surgery now or you could possibly lose your vision.” said my doctor. This was after he found a tear on my retina.
The surgery was quickly done and now the healing process began.
The doctor told me that for the next 12 days I would need to lie in bed on my left side as much as possible. The more I did it the quicker I would heal.
That meant no computer work, no reading, no texting, NO WORK… PERIOD.
I thought to myself, “What the hell am I supposed to do for the next 12 days!” A couple of hours later I was at home lying on my left side in bed and that began my recovery process.
As a full-time Realtor, I had just accepted a couple of new contracts and wasn’t sure how I was going to coordinate the process as I usually manage all sales myself.
Thankfully my office manager began a transaction coordination service for the agents in the office and she began to work on my files.
As I lay in bed, a thought came over me and I’m sure others have thought the same. What would happen if I had a more serious injury and couldn’t work for a longer period of time? As Realtors we get paid strictly on commissions. So basically, once a sale closes, we are unemployed until we assist another client in a sale or purchase of a home.
Even if someone has a job, I’m not sure how long their sick leave benefit would last.
That’s when I began thinking of how important residual income from network marketing really is.
At most jobs, if you don’t show up to work, you don’t get paid. No matter how many years you have been there and even if you were the employee of the month, if you decided not to go to work, would you still get paid? Most likely not.
Many are stuck in the 9-5 grind day in and day out for the same company…that is not residual income.
I’ve had success in the past, but after getting involved in numerous companies, contacting friends and family again felt awkward at times.
Have you felt the same way?
A fresh new approach to recruiting and attracting…that works!
I was getting so frustrated of making that same list of family and friends to approach when I joined my current network marketing company only to get the same rejection as before.
You know…not really being sincere, looking like I’m desperate for them to join instead of being a caring friend. I would spend hours sending video links, messages, emails, posting about my company and products in groups, and calling friends, family, and anyone else I could think of that might want to take a look at what I was doing. I was tired, exhausted and knew that I had to keep doing more of the same for a very long time to find that one or two superstars that would explode my business.
I love network marketing and the unlimited opportunities that it can provide to my family and I and I wasn’t about to quit.
I thought there has to be a better way…No more running around…No more making phone calls to strangers…No more late night appointments.
The problem shared by many of us was not having enough prospects to introduce my products or business opportunity to.
Then last year, I discovered a way to actually build my network marketing business as a real home-based business…everything changed when I finally found a way of prospecting online after reading an email from a young marketing genius.
It was a simple system that requires no cold calling, no going to home or hotel meetings, no rejection and no selling.
In fact, with this system, people actually contacted me to hear more about my opportunity and products.
What I’m leading up to is this:
I now use a system called “Attraction Marketing”. And you can use this too.
The proven principles of Attraction Marketing will help you avoid rejection and build a business with quality prospects reaching out to YOU instead of the other way around.
If you’re ready to start a new and more exciting chapter in your business life…I invite you to a FREE, 10-day Recruiting Boot Camp done by my mentor, Ferny Ceballos. Ferny will show you an easy way to recruit, rejection free without wasting your time and money chasing dead beat prospects and leads. This is the exact info he personally used to grow a 6-figure network marketing business before he was 28 years old without cold calling or bugging friends & family and he would like to show it to you as well!
You’ll also get more details about a book he wrote, which goes into the nuts n’ bolts of his recruiting & selling formula.
Now if traditional cold market prospecting methods both online or offline is your thing and you want to stick to that, by all means, go for it. Many top trainers and earners in the network marketing profession still focus on these recruiting skills… but they also do “Attraction Marketing” too!
For me, there was simply a certain way I wanted to live my life and that was more important.
I would much rather make a ton of money in my business first and then have my friends and family beg me to tell them more about it.
It’s much better than begging them to join a business which isn’t making any money.
So there you have it. Which would you prefer?
Hopefully my story gave you a different perspective on the importance of residual income and why you can’t quit even if no one is joining your business. If it did, I would greatly appreciate if you commented below.
