Like Any Profession,
You’ll Need to Learn
I hope by now I’ve been successful at convincing you that
Network Marketing is a better way. I hope I’ve also gotten
the point across that, if you’re going to be involved,
it’s best to become a professional. The next step is recognizing
that you’ll need to learn some skills. But before we get to those
skills, let me give you some good news.
Unlike most professions, you’re not going to need a lot of
money for your education. You won’t have to take out student
loans and you can actually earn while you are learning. In addition,
this profession isn’t biased. In fact, it’s the most equal
opportunity on earth. Your background, experience, contacts,
age, race, or gender aren’t going to be factors in your ability to
learn the skills to Go Pro.
And finally, this isn’t complicated. The skills necessary to
grow a large and successful business are extremely learnable,
and you’ll have a surprising number of people financially motivated
to help you learn them.
There are three primary elements to your Network
1 First, you have the company’s products. If some people
are successful in marketing those products and you’re
not, it isn’t the product’s fault. In other words, everyone
in your company has the same products to offer to the public.
2 Second, you have the company’s compensation plan.
If some people are making a lot of money and you’re
not, it isn’t the compensation plan’s fault. There isn’t one
plan for men and one for women. There isn’t one plan for different
age groups, or educational backgrounds, or for the color
of your skin. The compensation plan is the same for everyone.
3 The third element is the most important, and that element
is YOU. You are really the only variable. Everyone
has the same product and the same compensation
plan, but you are going to be the difference between success

That means right here and right now, you need to take
full responsibility for your Network Marketing business. Decide
today never to blame anyone or anything else for your
lack of results.
In fact, in Network Marketing there is something of an
epidemic going on. People just love to blame their upline (the
people above them in the structure) for all of their problems.
“If my upline did this for me or did that for me, everything
would be better.”
If you’re committed to building a large and successful organization,
I’d like to encourage you to do something important.
I’d like you to say goodbye to your upline. Call them up
and say something like:
“I want to thank you for this opportunity. I appreciate it.
Getting into business for myself was important and I appreciate
you introducing me to a company that you believe in and
that I now believe in as well. But from now on, when it comes
to building my business, I will use you as a resource but never
as an excuse. I may call on you from time to time. If you’re
available, that’s great. If you’re not, that’s okay too. I’m going
to build my business and I understand one thing: It begins
and ends with me.”
Everything changes when you take full responsibility for
your Network Marketing career.
Would it surprise you to know there are only seven fundamental
skills necessary to build a huge business in Network
Marketing? Seven, not 70. Each one is fairly basic, but
it always amazes me how little effort people put into learning
them. If a college course were to be offered on Network
Marketing, it would be one of the easiest classes to take. It’s
not rocket science but you’ll be happy to know it’s one of the
highest paid skill sets in the world.
Let’s explore each of them together.
