What are the steps to follow to become a good network marketing expert?


The speed of growth in your Network Marketing business is determined by the rate of duplication in that business. In other words, success in Network Marketing is strictly dependent upon duplication.

Duplication is strictly dependent upon a set of transferrable skills.

The moment a skill set is too difficult to be taught and transferred duplication slows down or stops.

Network with a purpose!

One of the greatest things about the Network Marketing industry is the trainings are usually cheap if not free.

There are many fantastic trainers in Network Marketing BUT 90% of them don’t have a book, or a YouTube channel, or spend their time on Facebook or Twitter.

The reason is they are actually spending their time with people. They are the ones you will meet at an event on a Thursday night or a training on a Saturday morning.

The four steps for you to become the best Network Marketer you can be are:

  1. Find the best trainers you can
  2. Learn everything they teach (via in person trainings, webinars, calls, books, etc)
  3. Apply the training
  4. Repeat steps 1-4

Over time you will find similarities, different opinions, different systems and be able to create or adopt the best system of duplication with the cocktail of knowledge you’ve acquired and implement it to get the best results!

You’ve got this!

Network Marketing for Introverts

Introvert Networker

Introverted Network Marketer asks:

I have a fear of asking when is a good time for a meeting, and hear them saying “call me now, I have 10m” because I like to prepare things, but if I have to prepare before I call every prospect, it will slow my work tremendously. What should I do?

If I have to prepare before every call I make to try to secure a meeting, it will be very inefficient, because 90% of my work will go to the garbage AND it will slow my work a lot.

On the other hand, if they reply “call me now, I have 10m”, I’m not prepared and I don’t feel it’s genuine to tell them “I don’t have 10m” right now.

What should I do?


Introverted Network Marketer,

There are three roles in every recruiting scenario and no one person should ever play two roles.

They are:

  1. The Prospect – the person investigating the company whether it’s their first look or tenth.
  2. The Presenter – the person who is going to do 90% of the talking with the prospect. This is typically a member of the inviter’s upline but can also be someone else in their team/downline.
  3. The Inviter – the person who invited the prospect. After extending the invitation this persons job is to introduce and edify the presenter.

For example, let’s say Jane invites Tom. Whenever Tom says he is able to have the call, if it’s 10 minutes or two days, Jane’s job is to get on a call with Tom and introduce Tom to the Presenter. She might say, “Tom this Gary. By day Gary is a very successful (insert Gary’s profession here) and started his (insert company name here) business X (months or years) ago and had has done very well (if Gary has achieved a rank in the company you might add that).

And then simply turn the call over to Gary and let him tell Tom about the company. At that point Jane’s job is done for the time being. After the call it’s either enrolling the person or getting them to the next meeting/webinar/event.

Network Marketing success is based on a transferable set of skills. If the skill set can’t be transferred to the new enrollee (in other words anyone should be able to do it) then it can’t be duplicated.

In the meantime, Jane should be listening to Gary. As Gary is “presenting” what he’s really doing is simply telling a story. He’s telling the story of the company in his own words. Jane’s responsibility is to hear the story of the company from as many people as she can as many times as it takes until she can tell the story of the company in her own words. Then she can be the presenter for other people.

Follow this system and all you have to do is coordinate and connect other people.


Then and Now

Fact #1: Physical health influences mental and emotional health.

Fact #2: Action expresses priorities.

My passions have always included active things.  Although it’s weird to say it, food can be addictive. And for a while, I really was addicted!  I don’t mean a dozen krispy kremes on my gut with my feet up and the remote in my hand. I mean waking up and way over thinking when and where I was going to eat next.

Thirty pounds later I found myself just not feeling like myself anymore!

I signed up for a race and painfully discovered what I already knew but didn’t want to admit. That is, although one of the best motivators, just because you sign up for a race doesn’t mean you’re going to lose weight and get in shape. Just ask the people who stopped to check on me while puking my guts out only a few hundred yards into the 15 mile bike course.

Disappointed for not getting the results that I didn’t work for I signed up for three additional triathlons for a total of four in five weeks (three sprint distance, 1 Olympic).

Passion Rekindled?  Check. But a long road ahead.

Over the past several months I’ve lost 30 pounds and 14.75 inches. I have what’s considered to be a normal/healthy BMI again, but it’s not about a about a number on a scale, it’s about being the best possible version of yourself…and I know I can still be better and do better! 

The truth is, I don’t remember the first time I heard about the Ironman Triathlon, however it struck me that what those people were doing was impossible, dumb, and stupid, but above all, inspiring.

What if it really is possible? A 2.4 mile swim followed by a 112 mile bike followed by a marathon (26.2 miles) all by one person in one day! And if you don’t finish by midnight, they will either 1 – pull you off the course or 2 – even if you make it to the finish line you won’t be recognized as and official finisher!

So here I am!  My head says it’s possible…right?  Because it’s been done before.. right? While at the same time my heart says…I can do it! Followed by.. I can right?

So that is what I’m going to find out.

I’m not trying to be the fastest or the best or toot my own horn, but at least once in your lifetime you need to do something you didn’t think you could do.

With that said, the big goal for 2014 Half Ironman Boise on June 7th.  Then the big show, Ironman Coeur d’ Alene in June 2015. (**UPDATE** 70.3 Lake Tahoe on Sept 21st and the full Ironman in Boulder, CO August 2, 2015)

No excuses, no regrets!

The goal is now public!  So I have to do it…right? 😉

It’s an addictive drug, but you should do it! 😉

The Future

“The future of this world has long been declared; the final outcome between good and evil is already known. There is absolutely no question as to who wins because the victory has already been posted on the scoreboard. The only really strange thing is all of this is that we are still down here on the field trying to decide which team’s jersey we want to wear!”
