Good morning! I’m on vacation in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida, and although this is a “working vacation” for me, there’s been a lot more “Vacation” than “Work” going on!
I was doing some research this morning, and about 9:00 took a walk down to the beach for a while. A young lady jogged by, and I realized that our Profession of Network Marketing is very much like Running!
How so, you may ask?
Anyone Can do Network Marketing
Remember when you were a kid? Every day was an adventure, kept in check only by your parents!
If you wanted to go somewhere, you could just start running. Running up hills, down hills, racing with your friends.
As you get older, you still can, but we seldom do.
But the potential exists, so long as your body is healthy enough, to put on shoes, walk outside, and start running!
That is just like starting your Network Marketing Business!
Anyone can, typically for a few hundred dollars or less, start a business that can pay them an Executive level income working from home! Get in, get busy! Start Running with it!
But does that automatically mean you can instantly be successful?
Sure, sometimes – but most find it’s actual Work.
You can go outside now, and start jogging down your street, but it doesn’t mean you’re ready to run world-class sprints or a marathon!
To be a Big Earner in Network Marketing, you have to Train.
If you decided you love running, but know you can do better, you will start to Learn.
Books, magazines, websites, local stores, and people who are doing it.
How they train, what they eat, when they run. How to build up your strength and endurance.
You’ll find yourself deeper and deeper into the body and how it works, the equipment you need and how to succeed more!
Network Marketing is no different.
You need a coach, to find out what works, and what doesn’t.
You’ll need to treat it seriously and ultimately, depending on your goals and skills, to pour yourself into it and become an expert.
You’ll try new things that don’t work, and things that do that you enjoy and can repeat – and Teach to others!
At first, you’ll be excited, remember the freedom of being a kid… but you’ll probably tire quickly, get discouraged, and (honestly) sore!
What’s driving you? That’s your WHY!
Running isn’t the goal, just like your Network Marketing business isn’t the “goal”. It’s the vehicle to get you where you want to go!
Do you need to become so obsessed you’re ready to run the Boston Marathon? No, of course not, but if you want to be able to run a mile from your home and not call for someone to give you a ride, you’ll need to train and practice each and every week.
Same with your business. You don’t “try” it for a week and give up!
You recognize it’s a commitment that many give up on, without realizing it’s a whole new set of skills to learn and practice.
If you haven’t found your Vehicle yet, contact me and I’ll share what’s working for us. If you have, set your “training schedule” and get busy – and focus on the long term goal!
