MLM Social Media- 3 Prospecting Secrets for LinkedIn Recruiting

MLM Linkedin Recruiting and Prospecting.

Have you ever been on LinkedIn and seen the millions of professionals there for your home business?

Are you currently working LinkedIn for your network marketing business?

How does your plan work on LinkedIn- or do you have one?

There are many great social sites out there, but for the professional and business owner, LinkedIn is the hottest prospecting site for a home business professional to get the word out about you and your products.

I ran across this great post by Jill Konrath, and it was amazing. I really like her style and how she sees things in the social world of business. I would suggest that you take notes and on her blog, she does a lot of videos as well, so you will learn from her as I have. Hey! I teach this stuff and have for 7 years, and still learning from great folks like her.

Here is her post:


3 Ways to Reach New Prospects on LinkedIn.

Link to Original Post.

Did you know that overall, you’re 5X more likely to get a sales call returned if you have a personal connection with someone? To me, that’s an amazing statistic. In a world where people are swamped at work and suffering from information overload, it’s the best way to capture their attention.

So what does that mean you should be doing? In essence, implementing a connection-based strategy to reach new prospects.

Here are three ways you can do that by leveraging your LinkedIn connections:

  1. The first thing you can do, is to check LinkedIn to determine if you know any of the same people. Look at their profile too. You might have gone to the same university or worked at the same company at some point in your career. When you reach out to them, make sure to mention the connection right away. This increases your odds of success by threefold.
  2. An even better approach is to have your mutual connection call your prospect to make an introduction. By doing this, you’re upping your chances of success by a factor of four.
  3. And, the best approach of all? Contacting a personal connection. You’re 11x more likely to get a return call. This means you need to strategically focus on developing relationships with people who are similar to your ideal customers. Go where they are — both on and off-line — and initiate a conversation. Make sure you keep in touch with them too. It’ll be well worth your time.

To sum it up, we’re in the Relationship Age, and who you know matters — a lot.

And that says it all folks- we ARE in a Relationship Marketing Age and we better know and learn how to market our mlm network marketing home business in this age.

MLM Leadership- How to Accelerate DUPLICATION on your Team

mlm home business duplication

mlm network marketing duplication


Do you know how to duplicate your success efforts in your home business?

Are you struggling with building your network marketing mlm business?

Could you use some help in your leadership strategies for duplication?

There is nothing more important in Leadership in your home business then Duplication. Nothing happens until something is duplicated and the results are locked in.

But many in network marketing struggle because they do not know how to duplicate and drive depth in their team nor how to teach it.

We are going to go over the secrets to duplication and making it happen in your team with a 4 step process.

And if you learn this process and master it, you will see your business grow in a manner that most never will. Duplication is the secret to building Leaders and building your business.

This 4 step process is a simple but powerful success process. It has been taught before, but it still works- online or offline.

1. TELL.

2. SHOW.

3. TRY.

4. DO.

Lets start with:

1) TELL.

TELL the new team member what they are supposed to know and do, and make sure that they learn it, and get it done. This is called education. Tell them step by step and action by action how to do it. Here is also where you want to ROLE PLAY! ROLE PLAY! ROLE PLAY! Practice with them what you have told them to do. And practice, drill, and rehearse even more. Let them get a feel for what they are going to be doing.

2) SHOW.

SHOW the person how to do it LIVE and do it RIGHT-online or offline. Show them step by step.  And if you are marketing online, get them to the site or a goto meeting for LIVE  “this is how you do it” training with them . Whether offline or online, let them SEE YOU DO IT. Take them on an appointment. Get them on some calls or webinar with you so they can listen amd learn. Let them hear you talk to a prospect. Let them see you do a presentation online and offline. Let them hear you close someone. Let them SEE what you do and how to do it.

3) TRY.

You need to “ACTIVATE” them. You need to get them IN ACTION and let them start the engagement process themselves. They may make mistakes at first, but do not scold them. Encourage them, and compliment them for the attempt if they are not very good at first. Most people bring skill sets to this business that are ill prepared for Success. You must help them develop the skill sets that are necessary and let them learn and get better with each attempt at the actions and process of doing this business.

Let them TRY what they have learned, have seen, and have heard with you watching. After they have tried what they saw you do and heard you do, then you need to COACH them to Success. Coaching requires you to be watching for the mistakes and then gently telling them about those mistakes, and then encourage them to engage again until they do it correctly. Discuss with them what they did that was great- and again, what needs to be improved. And then let them try it again and again and again, until they have the process and actions down successfully.

4) DO.

And then they eventually will be DOING it by themselves- and ready to teach and EQUIP others with this simple philosophy of training.

You may be asking, “How long does this take?”

Simple. No more than a week or 2 of effort. People are smarter than you think if you do training RIGHT.

Even in social media- if people are not engaged in talking with people, connecting, doing events, going local, and all there is to do, they will be wasting their time. YOU have to get them on the computer and SHOW them how to set up a facebook profile or twitter account. This is SHOWING- not just learning.

There are many educated people with a home business that never get started. Do NOT make that mistake. Use and teach this 4 step process and you will find that duplication is taking place all through your team for success in mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training – The 4 Pillars of Leadership- # 1 Communication

MLM Leadership 4 Pillars Training.

Have you ever thought about YOUR leadership in your network marketing business?

What does Leadership mean to YOU in your home based business?

Do you know what the 4 Pillars of Leadership are in MLM?

The 4 Pillars of Network Marketing Leadership.

There are 4 “Pillars” of Network Marketing Leadership and you must know them if you are
going to truly succeed with a successful team. These 4 Pillars can truly help you master the Leadership and Team Building skills needed for Network Marketing success and to duplicate your home based business.

What are the 4 “Leadership Pillars?”





We will cover the NUMBER ONE of these 4 Pillars briefly with this post, and tell you how they work in building a team and leading it. The 3 others will be covered in future posts.


All great Leaders that have built large downlines have mastered the Art of Communication.
They understand the power of their words and the power of their Influence.

You must understand the power and influence behind your words.

Weak leaders have a weakness in their communication and in their approach to Leadership. They are not passionate and they do not have the ZEAL for their Vision they need. Zeal is a common element in Leadership that many people do lack as they are too focused on what is NOT happening in their business versus Leading your team to MAKE something happen.

Communication Rule: You must communicate DAILY with your leaders and weekly with your team.

This is critical as THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU. Now do not over do it either!  Too much communication can work against you. But if you communicate within those parameters, and do it consistently, it will work well for you.

Communicate to the group who is doing what and out the “Leadership Spotlight” on the ones
that deserve it. You see, you do not spotlight those that NEED the spotlight but the ones that DESERVE the spotlight.

Put a newsletter out and recognize the people that are making it happen!  Focus on the efforts and praise their results! And do NOT keep the same people in the Leadership spotlight. Mix it
up, and make sure that your people that are truly getting even small results, are focused on and encouraged publicly. The more that they feel APPRECIATED the more they will continue to stretch themselves and work. That is one of the biggest elements for Communication- APPRECIATION.

 Communication soaked with Appreciation always equals LOYALTY.

And the Number One Rule for Communication with your team is “KTFOTD!”

“Keep Them Focused On The Dream!”

Communicate all the time “I can see you with that new house! I can see you in that new car! I can see you walking across the stage collecting a ten thousand dollar check!”

This will keep them focused on their dreams for their mlm network marketing home based business.

MLM Training – How to Turn an Objection into a Referral

mlm home business objections

mlm home business network marketing

MLM Handling Objections Tips.

Do you ever get objections in your home based business when you are working?

Have you ever been stumped with an objection in your network marketing efforts?

How did you handle it?

Many people do  NOT like to talk about objections as they simply are something that people fear, but yet do not know what to do. And of course people do not like to talk about what makes them uncomfortable.

But unless you GET COMFORTABLE with objections, then you probably will not like to even acknowledge they exist. (smile) But I believe that you MUST be able to handle what stops most people in network marketing and mlm.

Here is a secret: if you can master objections, you have mastered the hardest part of this business.

So…Let’s talk about Objections.

Objections are simply smoke and mirrors with most people. They are ways that people have learned to respond from people they know and like. They have been “programmed” to respond in a particular fashion without even thinking. They are words that they have heard over and over and learned to respond in that fashion to ideas and concepts they are not familiar with.

When it comes to objections, many people make 2 very big mistakes:

 1) They argue with the prospect.  (This will get you NOWHERE.)

2) They make the prospect resistant towards talking further by trying to overcome the objection. Dumb.

When someone starts disagreeing with you- that is normal. It happens almost daily in normal conversation in life. Here, I will prove it:

Dinner.   Have you ever suggested a place to eat and someone said they did not like that restaurant or food? Did you quit eating after that?

Movies.   Have you ever wanted to see a movie but your date wanted to see something else? Did you give up movies after that?

Store. Has anyone ever wanted to go to a particular store but someone wanted some other store because they liked their selection better? Did you give up shopping?

Of course not.

IN ALL 3 cases, their were objections,  but yet we just took them in stride and moved on with our life.

You got to admit, it happens everyday. It can happen in every other conversation and people are going to disagree with you with some TOUGH objections dealing with life. But yet, we don’t give up. We get up the next day and face some form of objections again.

That is what we need to do with business objections from people- what we do with every other objection in life we get.

Here is a HUGE Objections Tip:  When someone disagrees with you – Make them glad they brought the objection up. Make them feel good about your response. Make them feel like that it was ok to disagree with you. THANK THEM for their objection.

Yes- you read that right.


Because you are taking back the power in the conversation and neutralizing the power in the objection.

Here is what you say and even turning an objection into a referral:

“I want to thank you for bringing that up. That really shows me that you have been thinking and I appreciate that kind of thought process.”

 “I think you would agree that decisions are tough to make without all the correct info-right?”

 “This very well may not be for you-but I would encourage you to listen only for a couple of minutes- and after that…

“If it is not, then I will thank you for your time. But you still may be able to help me. You know who I am looking for, and maybe you can point me in the right direction as far as someone you know. Would that be ok?”

This is known as “setting up a referral” from an objection.  Works really well and works most of the time!

Learn how to set up a referral from an objection and watch your recruiting explode in your mlm network marketing home business.

7 Opening Lines for Connection on Social Media in MLM

The ONE Sercret to Powerful Magnetic Leadership

MLM Social Media- 5 Ways to Get the ATTENTION of Anyone in Social Media

social media home business

social media home business mlm

MLM Social Media Recruiting Tips.

How do you get someone’s ATTENTION with a social media prospect for your home business?

Do you have any way in particular you use for your network marketing social media efforts?

Are there any questions that you like to ask?

Social Media is unique and powerful and I have been training on this for 8 years. But the basics of Social Media in mlm never change. The sites may, the software may change, but the basics do not.

And getting the social media prospect’s attention of you do not know how can be quite, well, frustrating. Especially when you combine them with platforms or tools like ai chat bot that help you improve the user experience in every way. In addition to the speed and savings that this reflects in the income of companies when you use them in your social networks.

Let’s ask this question:

Why do people initially get into Social Media Marketing?

Think about it. WHY do they get into social media and now mobile media? Why do they market on social media?

Here is the HUGE Secret:  ;  )

It’s to get people’s ATTENTION.

That is human nature and part of who we are. We want to be SEEN, APPRECIATED, and APPROVED OF. Among other things as well.

But there are certain things you can do to insure you get the RIGHT attention of the people. And the RIGHT attention is getting them CURIOUS to who you are and what you are doing, for this you can uses simple phrases like for example Tiktok pick up lines.

Here is what we call “The Social Media Attention Process:”

Awareness ? Connection ? Conversation? Attention.

This 4 step Attention Process can create a lot of exposure for you. It also can move you into a space on social media to open up doors for you and your business. Your network marketing business can become a golden nugget that people FIND if you do the attention phase correctly.

Be smart, use the most popular apps and social media to spread the word. Visit and talk with marketing experts about the best way to advertise your products in this platform. And for you to become viral today on TikTok, you can do buy TikTok likes to make it achievable!

The ONE THING that will get people’s attention on social media:


Make sure your conversation is VALUABLE- and leaves people saying “Wow!” Leave their jaw dropping and totally amazed. That alone will get people’s attention.

Here are 5 ways to get people’s attention on social media:

1) Be Consistent and VISIBLE in everything you do and say on social media.

In your Message be consistent so it will brand.
In your Profile be consistent across the social sphere.
In your Value be consistent to make people want to hear from you.
In your Presence be consistent so they do not forget about you.
In your Tweets be consistent and regularly sent.
In your Efforts be consistent and focused.
In your Posts be consistent in great content and answers that will help people.

2) Ask open ended questions and seek answers and solutions with those that have content.

This can be a great attention getter on social sites. Put the other person in the role as an expert- and seek their advice initially. Direct message people with a question to personalize the communication. This will get their attention and also you WILL connect with them.

3) Share information with people that most do not know about and you can be seen as the “Revealer.”

There is so much great content out on the web. Find the little known information on obscure blogs and posts, and videos and especially in NICHES. Get to know the  bloggers and writers. Do not send out the same information that has been out there. Be fresh-and new and unique. Be seen as the ‘go to person” when new information in your niche is added. Take the time to do this-it pays off.

4) Recognize the contribution and conversation of others and make sure you PARTICIPATE.

Attention is a hook. It is what hooks people to take a further look.  What is YOUR hook?
Make it that you appreciate and recognize the efforts of all in the conversation. Don’t placate, but admire. Don’t kiss up, but step up and say what is of Value and what has HELPED YOU personally.

5) Come up with a phrase, hook, logo, icon, or avatar that is magnetic.

Many people have a phrase that they repeat over and over. Or a hook that works- copyblogger. Or a logo that is unforgettable. Or an avatar of you that makes people take a second look.
That will not only get their attention- but also keep you remembered.


These are 5 things that will help you get the attention of folks on social media for your mlm network marketing home business. If you are looking for a way to easily start your social media platforms, like Tiktok, with a good following right away, there are marketing agencies offer that offer customers to buy Tiktok likes in just few minutes.

MLM Social Media- 7 Opening Lines for Connecting on Social Media

mlm home business network marketing

mlm network marketing social media

MLM Social Media Opening Lines.

Do you ever struggle with contacting people in social media for your home business?

Do you ever have to think of something rto say and not look foolish when contacting people for your network marketing business?

Is there a favorite line that you use in social media to open up conversation?

Many people make some mistakes in their quest for opening up conversations with people in the social sites. They often say and do things that turn people off. What are some of the reasons that people do say things that do NOT work?

They are 1 of 3 things:

a. Too anxious.
b. Too cocky.
c. Too timid.

There must be a balance between the three. You cannot come across as you are talking to them as if you WANT something from them. Thye will sense that. It is even that way on mobile devices as well. You CANNOT be focused on getting something from them. You must be focused on GIVING something to them.

People want to know you are not “after” something but are putting your own interests after them.
Many folks are way too aggressive in their approach and in their communication. RELAX. Take the pressure off.

Opening Lines in social media should be friendly, encouraging, and magnetic. And they should FEEL friendly, and be cordial.

Here are three rules for opening Lines that we have found that works and works well:

1) Focus 100% on something the prospect has done or said.
2) Seek friendship -NOT a distributorship.
3) Be brief and warm and take pains to RELAX the person you are reaching out to.

Oh- and don’t come across like you have “agenda” on your forehead. That is NOT a good thing as you probably have found out already.

Here are 7 ways to reach out to people and relax them as well as draw them to you:

1) “Glad to see you here-how long have you been on this social site?”

This is a generic opening line that will work with almost anyone. Keep it focused on finding out about them-not selling them. Ask questions and then ask more.

2) “I recently ran across a post of yours and loved it.”

You create in influence that way. You are seen as someone “who gets it.” You are seen as a learner.
You are seen as “the next generation.” Than others will be promoting you as a way of saying thanks. BE ENCOURAGING- no matter what.

3) “Here is a post that I thought you would appreciate on ——”

This is a great way to open up a conversation. Go to their profile. Research it. Find a post in their interest. Then share it with them.

4) “ I see you know about ——may I ask you a question-maybe you can help me.”

People love being asked about their authority niche. Make it a sincere question. Let it be a simple one to answer. Thank them for any and all comments..

5) “You and I are friends with —-and thought that we should connect…”

Find people that you both have in common. Tap into other people’s friends or followers. Share a commonality from the very start. Let the common connection birth another one

6) “WOW! You have a great looking blog! Love the look. Did you design it yourself?”

People with blogs- visit them. Comment on them. Promote their content. Share the link on other sites. Ask their input on their blog about a post they wrote. They will do the same for you.

7) “I see we have <             >  in common as an interest. Would love to learn from you.”

People love to be seen as a teacher. This elevates their image. It also elevates their interest in you.
It also elevates your communication IMPACT with them.

These are 7 ways to approach people for your social medis efforts in your mlm network marketing home based business.

The Hidden Power of Full Engagement in MLM

The ONE Secret to Powerful Magnetic Leadership

MLM Training- How to Do a Magnetic Three Way- Part Two

mlm 3 way calling network marketing

mlm network marketing 3 ways calling

MLM Three Way Calling Training.

Do you do three way call for your team when recruiting for your home based business?

How do you do them in your network marketing mlm business?

Is your work at home business focused on three way calling or not?

Three way calling is CRITICAL to do with your home business, and if you are not doing them, you are missing out on the accelerating power of this tool.

I covered Part One of this Three Way Calling Series in this post- How to Do a Magnetic Three way” and I encourage you to read this if you have not.

Here is Step Two of the three way calling process. Step one is “The Introduction” and then you move to step two of a three part process:

2)  “The Expert” – your NETWORK MARKETING sponsor or upline who is calling with you.

During a three way call, your sponsor will thank the prospects for their time and let them know he is glad to finally talk to them!  He will reaffirm what you have told the prospects, validate you, answer any questions, and give them a larger vision of the big picture of what’s going on with the company.

She will generally talk for only a couple of minutes to respect the prospects’ time. There are many different ways to do three ways, but always ask questions about the prospects, and show you are INTERESTED IN THEM! 

People will find you INTERESTING, if they feel you are INTERESTED IN THEM!

The Sponsor will cover the five points of a three way call here.  Your sponsor will also help get your prospects to the next NETWORK MARKETING company event, conference call, or web cast, and also edify you as a serious player in this business (If you are doing three ways, you ARE a Player!)  Below is a sample template of a three way call, the Expert’s part.

The expert must maintain control of the conversation and limit the call to three minutes or less.  Otherwise, your prospects will think they don’t have time for the business, and you won’t be productive either!

“Hi Lisa, my name is Mary, and I have been looking forward to meeting you.  The reason I’m on the line is because Diane has told me a lot of great things about you and she said you’re taking a look at our company/products, so we thought we’d touch base with you together.  You’re probably busy so we promise not to keep you long. We just want to take a couple of minutes to share a couple of things with you.  I understand you live in Bay City.  I live in Hollywood so we’re really close!  And Diane said you’ve got two little ones, is that right?  What are their names?  How old are your children?  Do you work outside the home?  Are you married?  What kind of work does your husband do?  What do you guys like to do for fun?”  (Make it natural, not like you’re drilling them!  You’re looking for anything you have in common here, to bond with them.  Slip in your commonalities…  “We’ve got a 7 & 9 year old too!”)

 “Let me ask you Lisa, have you had a chance to take a look at the information Diane gave you about our company yet?  Great!  Let me tell you a little bit about what’s happened to me with this company… Since I’ve been involved for the last three years, not only have I found my income has dramatically improved, but I’ve been able to… (Quit my job and stay home with the kids, earn more $, enable my husband to cut back on overtime, work less hours, contribute significantly to the new building for our church, travel the world, retire early, put our kids in private school, put our kids through college, etc.), and we are looking for others who want to do the same and more.  What would making more money mean to you and your family?” 

 “Do you have any questions I could answer for you?  (Answer two or
three)  Lisa, I’m not sure if this is for you or not, but it sounds like you have some great questions and some interest in finding out more about what we do.
I’d love to have you take a closer look at how this can possibly work for you.  What are you doing Tuesday night?  The reason I ask is because all
of the questions you have can be answered at an event/conf call/webinar we are holding, and we would be honored for you to be our guest. Are you
available?  Great!  Why don’t you and Diane just come together.
She can pick you up! (Or she can three way you in)  You couldn’t be in any better hands than Diane’s! 

Well as I promised up front, we don’t want to keep you long but it’s been great talking with you and I have really enjoyed it. I love your personality.
I will turn this back over to Diane so you two can make arrangements.  I can’t wait to meet you tomorrow night Lisa.  I’m going to jump off the line now. Thanks Lisa.”

Success Suggestion:  Write your personal bullet points on an index card by the phone to make sure you include all the pertinent points as the “Expert” during your three way calls for your mlm network marketing home business.

3 Reasons Why You MUST DO Three way Calling MLM Today

The Psychology of Recruiting Small Business owners

MLM Training- 3 Reasons Why You MUST Do 3 Ways Calls in 2013

mlm network marketing 3 way calling

mlm network marketing home business 3 way calling

MLM Three Way Call Training.

Do you do three way calls for your home based business?

Is your network marketing business focused on three ways calls or are they something you struggle with?

Do you know WHY you must do 3 ways calls for your work at home mlm?

I was in a seminar recently, and someone said that 3 ways calls were a thing of the past, and they did not do them. They were an “online marketer” and did not believe they were needed. I asked them how there business was growing and he said “pretty good.”

I also asked him what his attrition rate was, and he said that his business was a like a turnstile, people come and people go. BUT that was the way the business was supposed to be. I disagreed and told him that my group had less than 20% attrition for 8 years straight back in the 90’s. Some years it had less then 15%.

He just stared at me.

He again, said things had changed in the “new marketing”, and that losing the majority of your people was just the way the business worked and I did  not really understand how the business worked today.  I said “Really?”  I smiled, as all the rest of the audience laughed, and then asked him if he wanted to do the seminar for the rest of the day!

By the way- this ‘expert” had been in the business for — 2 years!!! Never mind that I have been on for 27. And by the way- I am a HUGE proponent of online recruiting. HUGE!!!!!  BUT you still must get them offline and on a three way to insure that your prospect moves through the recruiting funnel and is “closed.”

THAT is a sure sign of why you must do three ways calls. We have found that the teams that do three ways calls, have less attrition then most other teams. And weird, but we found that less than half actually do three way calls with their sponsor. And guess what? Just about all of them were saying that their business was struggling.


Three way calling is a TOOL that you can use that will help train your new people and also lock down your results. It is something that will always be used if you are SERIOUS about building a long term business.

One of the most powerful tools that you can use to build your NETWORK MARKETING business, TELL people more, and create a successful First touch, is a three way call. That is
why I have written this post about it.

To accelerate your home business, you MUST learn how to use and master powerful tools including Three Way Calls, Training calls, and National Conference Calls.

NOTE: It is an industry fact that the average six-figure income earner in the industry has done nine times the amount of three ways than the average distributor.

Three Way Call is a technology and a tool available from your local phone company that allows three people to talk to each other on the phone, or a group of people on a Conference
Line.  We use it to train, validate, and help you “earn while you learn.”  Let your sponsor walk you through these powerful tools. These tools are there to help you and guide you in the early stages of your business.

Why should a Reseller do Three Way Calls? 

 1) It bridges the gap between inexperience and experience!

When people come into the home business profession, they lack the experience needed to build a business. But three way calling can help accelerate their results, as it truly can bring an experienced upline on a phone call that can answer the questions that the new person cannot yet. And it is also a GREAT training tool for the new distributor/consultant.

2) It validates your NETWORK MARKETING product line, business, and YOU.

The inexperienced Reseller lacks the credibility of someone who has been involved for awhile, and this tool helps fill that void. The sponsor will validate the new person and this will help build up the confidence of the new distributor.

3) Three way calling and conference calls are the least expensive, most effective, least used tools available to quickly build your NETWORK MARKETING paycheck!

The people who use Three-way calling consistently to build their business have children with wealthy parents!  If you’re not using it, you are seriously limiting the earning potential of you and your Team.

Order three way calling on your phone from the phone company.  It usually costs about $4.00 a month.


 You will want to three-way every NETWORK MARKETING prospect you have in the pipeline for recruiting at some point in the process.  The main  reason is that they will mirror what has been done with them once they become involved with their own prospects. Ultimately, they are already trained on how the process of how the business works by the time they enroll in your program.

KEY Point:

 It is possible that the three way call may come as a follow up after the Initial approach.  Use your own judgment, but do what works for you. Be certain to include the three-way call at some point in your recruiting process with everyone for the purposes of
duplication!  Rarely will a person do to others something that has not been done to them, especially when it comes to three way calls for your mlm network marketing home based business.

MLM Training- The 4 Life Changing Lessons Zig Ziglar Taught Me

MLM Zig Ziglar.

Do you know who Zig Ziglar is and he was the king of home business training?

Have you ever read one of Zig Ziglar’s books for your network marketing business?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “See you at the Top?’

It was Zig’s classic line that is now world famous and said daily by a ton of people.

I know. Zig may not be of your generation.

You may have heard his name, maybe. But Zig’s trainings were time transcending and classic in all aspects. He helped birth the personal development industry in the 60’s along with Earl Nightingale, Paul J Meyer, Jim Rohn, Charlie Tremendous Jones, and the like. Zig was in a class all by himself.

Zig Ziglar passed away this morning at 7 AM EST in a hospital.

He had pneumonia and had been in the hospital for a week and fighting it off, but the fight finally gave in to the inevitable passing to his reward.

Zig was an amazing mentor, and in 1994 we became friends and even did some seminars together on the big stage. He was quite the teacher and a friend. His son Tom is a dear friend and we talk often an have done a lot of business together.

In the wake of this tsunami of emotions I was feeling this morning, i got to thinking about what I had learned from this legend, and there were things that stood otu- among all the other things that he poured into my life…

And I will miss him as the world will. And just as Jim Rohn passing a couple of years ago, the world will now have another void in the training world that will never be filled. You cannot copy what cannot be copied as both were totally originals. God himself is probably letting the angels get motivated by Zig now.

What were those 4 things?

1. “It is NOT ABOUT YOU. Never will be.”

At dinner one night, Zig and I were talking and he looked at me and said that one of the greatest lessons he had ever learned was that it was not about Zig. Never was, never will be. it was about helping others getting along in life, and making it all about them.

“Your star is rising Doug, but it is not your star, nor your success. It belongs to the people that will help you get to where you want to go- and you will always owe the for your Success.”

2. “Character and Integrity is the Secret Sauce.”

Zig taught me that there are often “secret sauces” to recipes, and often that made the difference between good food and extraordinary food..

“Take Colonel Sanders of KFC. There was something in that recipe that made all the difference in the world. Not one piece of chicken would have tasted like his food, had it not been for that secrets ingredient. It is the same with life. if you have character and integrity, everything else will work out. There will be people that will offer you things that you need to walk away from and you will know when that happens. The secret sauce will keep you marketable and in business.”

3. “It is not just about hard work- but about smart work. Lot of people that are working hard are dead broke.”

That is so true. Working smart only makes sense if you are an entrepreneur or even an employee. Smarter work always dominates harder work. Yes, you need to work hard, and everyday. But if you combine that with smart work, you will be amazed at how less hard you will have to work to accomplish more in life. Working smart always leads to your OWN business somehow.

Automate, outsource, and delegate. That is the what Zig saw for the future even in the year 2000.

4. Never take yourself too seriously Doug, otherwise, no one else will.

Zig has a genius for making the complicated simple and the drudgery of business fun. he often made fun of himself on stage, and even laughed at himself often. So many times we are SO SERIOUS that we can turn people off and even turn them away.

Get some lightness to your focus and mindset, and have some FUN. Yes, you need to be serious when it is required- but it is not required all the time. And if you are achieving success in your life, do not take that as YOUR success either.

No one succeeds without help.

It is always some kind of team effort. Thank the team, and never pat yourself on the back. Always pat the team on the back and have some fun at your expense.

Here is a BONUS Lesson:

It is the person standing behind the spotlight aiming it on others that has the True Leadership Power.

Enough said. “The Power is in THE SHINE that you bring to others.”- Zig.

If you do these 4 things, you will find your success soaring in your mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training- 7 Ways YOU May be Working Yourself OUT of Network Marketing?

MLM Success Tips.

Are YOU working yourself out of your home  business?

Are YOU unknowingly getting ready to exit network marketing?

How will you know what you are doing with your mlm business?

There are many distributors in our home business profession that actually are slowly working themselves OUT of network marketing and mlm- and they have NO clue they are doing it.

Are YOU?

Let me explain….

We all have heard it.

It echoes over and over and over.

 “Work hard and you WILL Succeed! Be a busy beaver! Put the hours in! Hard work is all you need! Who needs sleep?”

But yet, many network marketing work at home distributors work very hard and long hours and do not ever succeed and end up leaving this business.

I know thousands of people that actually worked themselves OUT OF THIS BUSINESS!

How did this occur?

 1) These distributors were working very hard and very long hours and became totally exhausted with little results to show-so they left.

 2) These distributors were trying to be in too many places doing too many things at the same time-and got burned out.

 3) These distributors were talking to people who were not really interested –and led the distributor on- which started creating resentment for the industry from the distributor.

 4)  These distributors were trying to find people who would talk to them—not find prospects that were looking for them.

 5) These distributors were trying to “keep the plates spinning” so none would fall and break. But they were not aware that they were spinning the wrong plates – the wrong way.

 6) Theses distributors were being way too busy, spending way too many hours – “working this business, being BUSY”- but not BUILDING this business.

 7) These distributors were listening to the WRONG PEOPLE in their upline – who were not willing to do what they were asking OF THEIR DOWNLINE.

And I could list another dozen reasons…

These distributors attempted many of the right things for success—but did them totally wrong, totally exhausted, or totally discouraged.

They became frustrated, and many even became desperate.

And they ended up practicing in their business, without even knowing it, something that
creeps up on you and takes over your business:

“Net-BEG Marketing™”

 They end up begging people- without even being aware of it – to give them some time or to
join their business. So if you want your own business InventHelp is there to assist you at anytime with many researchers, illustrators, writers as well as customer service representatives and other staff.

This business is Net-WORK Marketing. It is NOT “Net-BEG Marketing.” You do NOT have to spend your time begging people for an appointment, or to buy something from you, or even to listen to you. There are MILLIONS of people looking for you and want to talk to you, but you must be where THEY ARE and Visible in that Market,

You move into “Net-BEG Marketing” slowly, and quietly. I have seen many people move into it their first couple of years, and someone had to steer them out of it-IF they could. You lose your power in this business and come across with a “NEEDY focus” — not a power focus.

You end up NEEDING the prospect, not the prospect needing you.

The prospect feels it and backs away. And it eventually gets to the point that many folks are mentally “on their knees” begging people for their time and money, and not even aware they are doing it.

They literally are “working themselves OUT of mlm home business network marketing.”
