Is FEAR of Talking to Your Circle of Influence COSTING You Money?

by limitlesslaura


What is your FIRST instinct or inclination when falling in love with a product, a service or a business? Most people want to share it with someone who means something to them personally, right?

Yet many, many folks in our industry are not comfortable doing that at fact, it’s one of reasons they are using other methods of marketing. I know, I know. You say “but that’s not me! I am not afraid! I just don’t want to talk to people, I would rather send email, and allow them to come to me! I would rather automate my business, so that it filters out the tire kickers.”

That’s fine, just know that you might be missing a huge element of network marketing…the HUMAN ELEMENT.

People thrive on connection, and actually looking in someone’s eyes (not only on video!) but in a real conversation!

Think of it this way…

As far as your Circle of Influence is concerned, we all have one. It’s a key part of our business, because these people know us, like us and trust us more than anyone else. Yet, these are the people that most reps are most reluctant to contact.

These are the people that can become your most LOYAL customers and raving fans.

When you are part of business and online marketing you might want to think of it as a BIG PICTURE..

People are searching to be led, and they are definitely searching for someone to step up and call them on the telephone and

say HELLO! I mean, You can talk all day long on a video, but when you actually connect over the telephone, or over skype, face to face (even better) and look into each other’s eyes..

Something very magical happens. That person will begin to see you as a leader, and someone who is not afraid to TAKE CHARGE..

People want to do business and buy from those who KNOW where they are going!

Do YOU know where you are gong?

Are you giving a clear message?

Reluctance is NATURAL….BUT YOU MUST GET OVER IT….Here’s a simple way to look at it:

Wayne Dyer says “If you change the way you look at things the things you look at change” So how do YOU LOOK at calling your Circle of Influence or Leads?

Some of the most gigantic network marketing organizations in history have been built as a result of a product or opportunity that catches fire because people have an experience that they go “tell the world” about it.

My husband and I have built  large organizations, all through working the telephone, and working with people we know, and the circle of influence of the people our people know, both in their local areas in our own town.

It’s the people you want to see succeed, that you wish would grasp on to an opportunity, or would find something to feel better, look better,  and be MORE in their lives that you MUST CALL!!

WHY would you NOT want to help the people you care about MOST Be More in their lives?

This is a curious a question and it’s all about the PARADIGM you are living in. Remember I said, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”?

If you got up every day and viewed your product or service as so life-changing, so dynamic, so huge, that you can’t believe hardly what you did to be so richly blessed to be aligned with it….You would feel an OBLIGATION to tell every living soul about it. You would be proud of it, and

FEARLESS. Nothing would stand in your way.

You see, people like me and my husband Larry and many other Professional Network Marketers who come from the “Old School” of building a thriving million dollar organizations, that ROCK have a SOLID CONVICTION that YOU MUST talk to people.

It’s not something you can leave out of the MLM Equation. It would be like baking bread and leaving out the yeast.

The good news is that almost anyone can get over it. It is not a permanent condition!

All you need is the same burning desire to succeed, a DECISION to change and a map to go in a new direction.

I was terrified to make calls when I was getting SERIOUS about taking my business to where I knew I deserved it to be, and finally overcame it.

What did I do?

How did I make the breakthroughs to go on to run live prospecting calls,

(allow hundreds of people to listen to me call my leads LIVE)

when I was still a little green, and be a FEARLESS – TALK – TO – ANYONE – ANYTIME – ANYWHERE – PROSPECTOR ?

I worked with a mentor & coach, and got past the motivations that were blocking me and learned the SKILLS I knew were necessary to success.

I realized that it went much deeper than just not picking up the phone, and if I didn’t get a handle on it, it would take over my whole MLM Leadership career.

Hiring a coach changed my life forever. If you are serious about getting past phone / skype reluctance and  fear, or taking CHATS off FACEBOOK to real conversations that can turn into business…


Once you are empowered to dial any person you know, and speak to them with amazing confidence, that will be the day your business is at an entirely new level!
