MLM Plan - next steps.
By now you should have done three things - signed up with someone who is a leader in your primary opportunity, determined how much money you need to spend in order to stay active with your company and begun to put together a list.
Now what? 1.
Figure out how you get paid! Go into your back office and find out about your new company.
First and foremost - LEARN THE COMPENSATION PLAN! You aren't going to make any money (and I assume that's why you're in the business in the first place) if you don't understand the compensation plan.
Make it your priority to understand the numbers and what you need to do to make the plan work for you.
Learn about your new business.
Get in touch with the person who signed you up and find out about training.
Learn something every day.
But don't spend all of your time training - getting ready to get ready isn't going to fill your bank account.
You need to get going.
Set your goals.
I'm not talking about, "I want to make a million dollars.
" With that kind of goal, you probably won't.
Make your goals specific and break them down into 30-60 day timeframes.
Each time you reach one goal, celebrate yourself in some way.
Then set a bigger goal.
Make sure they are attainable but still a reach.
Know your why.
Figure out why you are doing this.
Do you need to make your mortgage payment? Do you want to put your kids through college? Do you have a charity you want to support? It doesn't matter what it is, but it MUST be important enough to you that you will work hard to make it happen.
Write it down and keep it where you can see it.
MLM Plan - Network marketing isn't Netplay marketing.
One of the biggest mistakes people make in MLM businesses is they think it's a get rich quick scheme.
It's work and you'd better remember that.
So your MLM Plan needs to include concrete ideas on how you are going to run your business.
Treat it like a business.
You need a place to work and a telephone.
Set up a space where you can work.
It doesn't have to be a big office, but it does have to be an area where you can talk on the phone without interruptions from the kids, the dog, the wife.
Have a place where you can keep your papers organized.
And a computer and good internet connection is a necessity in this day and age.
Have set hours.
Commit to working a certain number of hours - and hopefully the same hours - every single day.
Let your prospects know what time of day that is and when and how to reach you.
If you can only work two hours each night, that's fine, just commit to it and stick to those hours.
Discipline trumps talent! Do certain things consistently every single day.
You can be the most talented person on the planet, but if you're lazy and disorganized, you won't make any money.
Set a schedule and stick to it.
Call 3-5 people a day, read your affirmations every morning, just do what needs to be done.
And do it every day! MLM Plan - the MOST important step! TAKE ACTION! It doesn't matter if you are brand new and haven't been in the business more than a few days.
You need to get moving and start talking to people.
I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "Ignorance on fire.
" Just get going.
You will make mistakes.
You will make lots of mistakes.
But you will learn from those mistakes so don't worry about it.
Just get out there.
One of my favorite quotes is from a man who was a poet, novelist and scientist and lived from 1749 to 1832.
His name was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
This is what he said: "Each indecision brings its own delays and days are lost lamenting over lost days..
What you can do or think you can do, begin it.
For boldness has magic, power, and genius in it.
" Be bold! Get going!
