Are YOU The Leader People Are Looking For? Have you considered lately how hungry people are to be uplifted, inspired, and LED? The industry is loaded with people out there looking for the “hitter”, or the “big fish” they can land in their business, that can bring over a down line, or at least a SUPERSTAR that will go to work, build their compensation plan, and sponsor a bunch of people!! Sound familiar? This is a very common desire and one that we hear every day. Fall out, or attrition, gets a little disconcerting sometimes, and every day it feels like you have to keep sponsoring people faster than they can quit. Duplication, and a fast growing, on fire group that TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN…that’s pure magic. When it happens to you, it’s the most exciting phenomenon, that you want to pinch yourself, because you can’t stop it if you try!!

Guess what. There’s a secret we’re going to let you in on, that the  Alpha Leaders know, a million dollar secret. It’s called the “I AM”. When you KNOW who you are, and your BELIEF in YOU is so high that YOU DON’T move.. (it’s called posture) people will naturally be drawn to you and whatever you have! They will want to do business with you because they will sense you are “IT”, and someone they can trust, someone who is constantly giving, loving and caring about others.  You MIGHT share your opportunity with them IF they are extremely lucky…but it’s down on the list, because you don’t need to even mention it. Of course you WILL, because you have the Goose that laid the golden egg! Remember, your belief level SHOWS all over your body language, and if you get it right…People just naturally want whatever you have. It’s the “music behind the words”. It would not even matter what you said!! People have to have your product, and opportunity, just to play with you, and be a part of what you are doing.!

Remember that thing called the Law Of Attraction? What does Law Of Attraction say: Like attracts Like OR That which is like unto itself is drawn. So, Would it not make sense that if we are directing all of our attention outward “looking” for that Leader, Superstar etc, it would stand to reason, that we inwardly believe our business, “lacks”, we lack, and do not shine that dynamic inspiring “fired up” energy outwardly!! Make sense? What I mean is this: A wise sponsor told me many years ago: “Stop searching for that leader, and start BEING the one they’re looking for, and your business will be set on fire in no time!” Indeed it was, and I went to the Top 10 and won a Carribean Cruise!

Many people are wandering out in the dark looking for that beacon of light, and they are looking to be uplifted by people who KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THEY ARE GOING. Do you know where you’re going? Are you emanating the LIGHT and FIRE of a TOP 10 Leader or even a #1 Leader? If not I invite you to sit down and look at why not. You can inspire your people, and lead them to the top, even if you only have a handful, because they will feel your passion, and they will want what YOU HAVE. They WILL WANT TO GO WHERE YOU ARE GOING!!  So watch this video, and Take my challenge this week to BECOME the LEADER PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR!!

I’m sure if you’ve been part of an MLM company or The Network Marketing industry for any length of time, you have heard these words MLM Compliance. If you’re a seasoned networker you know that these are the lawyers who maintain a watchful eye over the rules, procedures, policies and operations of your company, how it is promoted in the public, how the money is distributed, how the copyrights are used, and so on. If it has to do with anything legal, it’s part of compliance.

When you first join a company, you should always read through the policies and procedures thoroughly. Why? You need to know these in case something ever comes up that challenges one of them, or simply is needed as a reference. If you are treating your business like a real business, you look through the policies once a year and read any revisions. There might be changes, updates, and new rules that you must adhere to, and update your distributors on.

Some of the most common mlm compliance issues that have gotten network marketing companies in trouble or even shut down by their State Atttorney’s General are:

  • Over Inflated Income Claims from Distributors
  • Health Claims
  • Front Loading Of Products
  • Compensation Plans That Sell An Opportunity with No Product (A Pyramid or Ponsi Scheme)
  • Compensation Plans That Rely Heavily on Recruiting and very little on Customers if any

Our sponsor sent out a fantastic article this morning from mlmlegal.com and the very well known mlm industry attorney for our Network Marketing company, Jeffrey Babener.

Ten Common Mistakes Distributors Make

By Jeffrey Babener, ©  1998  mlmlegal.com

“…it’s a question of expectations. And, sometimes those expectations can get in the way of a successful career in the MLM business.”

******************

I goes without saying that we count on our precious paychecks coming (or our debit cards being loaded) week after week, month after month, in our fantastic opportunities. We only have a certain amount of control when it comes to the longevity and successful growth of our companies, and compliance is definitely one of the big ones! Just miss a paycheck, or even worse, have your company close (ouch!) because a group of distributors, or even the executives ruined it for the entire company and you’ll feel how important compliance really is. Adhering to the policies and procedures, walking the line and duplicating those rules with our people will ensure that our teams will grow strong. You have a choice about the kind of leader YOU want to BE and want to attract. YOU have a choice what kind of organization you want to run. We don’t like to talk about this “sobering subject”… the rules, but they are the foundation of our precious company’s longevity. Look at it in a positive way and be a crusader for the long life of your family’s stability.

Two guys who are honest crusaders and watchdogs for the MLM Industry happenings, are Rod Cook with MLMWatchDog.com  and Len Clements with Marketwaveinc.com You can subscribe to their newsletters and get notified of industry news, and learn more about compliance and this subject.

P.S. Here’s an excellent post by an expert on the subject, my friend Attorney Nancy Burke Barr, also a Network Marketer, a very nice lady, and well known as “Mentor Mama” in the marketing world online  Click HERE TO READ

It’s easy to forget the most important concepts under stress, when you’re busy building a business and attending webinars, soaking up education. I had forgotten a very critical principal this week.  Your MLM “PhD” is A Continuing Education Worth Millions because you are always learning something new to make yourself more valuable to your readers, your down line, your sales force, your students, your family and yourself . There is no amount of time or money that should not be sacrificed to make you as valuable as you can possibly be! Here’s why:                                                          

  • When you invest in yourself you are adding to your personal library of knowledge that will be with you forever. Nobody can take away what you know. You can take it anywhere, do anything with it. I have seen the libraries of Multi-Million dollar earners, and I can tell you they are vast. Heck our library is vast! A top money earner is always reinvesting a good portion of his or her income back into more knowledge!
  • You become extremely attractive with the more education you participate in. Sharing value with our readers is the name of the game!! If you don’t have anything valuable to bring to the table, well, your blog will not be interesting or engaging, and it won’t attract readers. Giving value is what makes you stand out, makes you a trusted advisor, liked as an individual, and perceived as a leader. The more tips, ideas, training, and help you can share with your readers or followers, the more you will find them “coming back for more”! [click to continue…]
