Lack of MLM Skills Is Only Part of the Problem

Those who have been mentored by Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter know that people fail in MLM because they lack the necessary skills. But I believe that’s only the beginning.

What if a network marketer buys and studies all the CDs and books and attends all the seminars and workshops –in other words, has all the skills – but still struggles and fails because THE SKILLS ARE NOT PUT TO USE.

Doesn’t that beg the question that there must be more going on than lack of skills?

Don’t we have to ask WHY that network marketer is not using the skills?

And what’s gotten into his mind that’s distracted him or confused and deterred her?

The percentage of network marketers who ARE making their goals won’t give this much thought unless they first have downline members who fit this description of struggle and second, care about those struggling.

The percentage of network marketers who are making their goals ARE most likely using the required skills and so are making Big Al’s point.

Unfortunately the vast majority in MLM is not and so is struggling and thus contributing to the common perception that MLM doesn’t work – to say the most harmless thing about it.

That’s why I wrote my book. I took six stories of six different people that I had a series of phone conversations with over the course of several weeks. They each swore they wanted to succeed but allowed outside people, forces and ideas to derail them. In the book I told their stories and then suggested what those ideas and forces might be and why so many, some say as high as 98%, fail.

I wrote this book to shed some light on a problem that is largely self-imposed and so is largely self-correctable, provided the will is there.

do you bake more loaves?

Create more wealth.

MLM: Just Another Part of the Ride

About 7 years ago when I first heard Personal Development and the idea that our thoughts create reality connected with Network Marketing, I was incredulous. I found it hard to believe that what I thought and believed had anything to do with my business success. 

Let’s face it, how many car salespeople or brokers concern themselves with such things? I was starting a networking business and needed to do the things necessary to build it. What was all this New Age stuff to do with that? 

Well, maybe those salespeople and brokers should pay attention, because now I know that seven years ago my education in my innate powers was just beginning. 

The very last part of the video presentation below ends with these words: 

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, “Is this real or is this just a ride?’ and other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say, ‘Hey, Don’t worry, don’t be afraid ever because . . . this is just a ride.'”

MLM or network marketing is just an attraction, another ride at the amusement park.

Don’t be afraid to let out a good scream!

The Value of an Elevator Pitch

Being in marketing of any sort you have no doubt heard of an Elevator Pitch. But what exactly is its purpose? As Seth Godin tells us below no one shops in an elevator.

No one ever bought anything in an elevator

The purpose of an elevator pitch isn’t to close the sale.

The goal isn’t even to give a short, accurate, Wikipedia-standard description of you or your project.

And the idea of using vacuous, vague words to craft a bland mission statement is dumb.

No, the purpose of an elevator pitch is to describe a situation or solution so compelling that the person you’re with wants to hear more even after the elevator ride is over.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Now an even better question: Can you deliver an effective description of what you offer, compelling enough to have people ask for more information?

If not, you can learn to . . . and for free too! Just go to http://MLMreadysetgo.info

There you’ll be able to register for a free series of webinars that presents the skills that will enable you to deliver a message that will have your listener asking for more.

And it is all based on the marketing skills of another master, Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter.

Now because of the holiday break the LIVE webinars are on a short hiatus but will resume after the New Year. But you can listen to the previous few months’ of archived recorded sessions.

All yours and all free. Just use my name, Tony Lauria, as your inviter. (FYI, this is not an affiliate program.)

  • Nothing Exists Without You

    When I was a kid there was a kind of riddle or ‘no-answer’ question that made the rounds. I’m sure you’ve heard it:

    “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound when it hits the ground?”

    We didn’t know it at the time but this question is the essence of quantum physics. It also addresses the nature of experiences being real or not.

    I have quoted before from the brilliant work by George Lavenia What You Think is What You Get. Here’s another one:

    “NOTHING EXISTS WITHOUT YOU, THE OBSERVER. NO PEOPLE OR PLANET, NOT EVEN THE UNIVERSE EXISTS WITHOUT YOU.

    IN SHORT, WITHOUT YOUR PARTICIPATION AS THE OBSERVER, NOTHING EXISTS AS THE OBSERVED; THEREFORE, THE OBSERVER AND THE OBSERVED MUST BE ONE AND THE SAME.”

    So, no one in the forest when the tree fell? Well then, no sound because there was no observer/listener.

    I am frequently asked what all this has to do with my business, my Network Marketing business. I’ll give you a hint by paraphrasing Mr. Lavenia:

    ALONE THERE IS NOTHING – NO OBSERVATION, NO EXPERIENCE, NO BUSINESS.

    SOMETHING EXISTS ONLY WITH THE TANDEM CALLED

    OBSERVER – OBSERVED

    or

    EXPERIENCER – EXPERIENCED

    or

    BUSINESS OWNER – CLIENT/PROSPECT.

    BUSINESS OWNER AND CLIENT ARE ONE.

    Although we are rarely in it, our Natural State of Being is one with our experience/observation. That is, there is no separation. Translated to business, one with our client. In that moment, there being no space in our mind to separate the two, something exists:  A Relationship based in Reality.

    But we somehow have figured out HOW TO GET IN OUR OWN WAY and disrupt the fundamental Natural State of affairs. 

    I trust I haven’t oversimplified matters.
