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.

Everybody Eats!

Let’s say you’ve got a loaf of bread and you have to feed everybody.

It doesn’t look like you’ve got enough so you’re up against two options.

Do you keep slicing that loaf into thinner and thinner pieces
or
do you bake more loaves?

Create more wealth.
And discover Why 98% Fail at doing this.

Why 98% Fail or No Success Without Failure

I know, I know! That’s focusing on the negative, like saying the “Glass is Half-Empty!”

Well, it is. It has to be in order for the Glass to be Half-Full, doesn’t it?

Let’s be honest. When you look at that Glass, it’s BOTH Half-Empty AND Half-Full AT THE SAME TIME.

All the conventional advice is for us to focus on Success, on the part of the Glass with the liquid. And when we do that we are choosing to ignore the empty half.

But it is still there  – the empty half I mean.

There can be no Full without Empty, just as there is no Success without Failure.

Besides, that’s where we learn.

You remember the story of Edison and his 10,000 ‘failures’. Only he didn’t call them that. He claimed he learned 10,000 ways the light bulb wouldn’t work!

So yes, looking at failure works. It teaches. In our case it teaches what NOT to do with our Network Marketing businesses.

If you’re up to it and want to learn what NOT to do, you may want to check out my new book available only at Amazon via the Kindle store. If you don’t have a Kindle reader, don’t worry. You can get the free reader app download for any of your devices here.

And you can get your copy of the book via http://Why98PercentFail.com.

Thanks.

To Your Success!

PS: Oh, the book’s subtitle is Why Recruiting & Keeping Your Downline Populated Keep Getting Harder. Aren’t you curious?

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.)

The Power of Intention

I’ve written before about the Power of Intention when coupled with the Power of Attention. Together they are what constitutes the Law of Attraction.

Did you ever feel like you had to go to some family affair but your heart was just not in it? You were convinced from the start that it would be a huge drag and waste of your time. But you went. And guess what? It was!

Have you ever looked forward to one of these get-togethers anticipating seeing cousins or a favorite aunt or uncle that you hadn’t seen in a long time and so expected to  have a great time? And you did!

“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” So said Henry Ford. And he was talking about the Power of Intention.

Sticking with our example of looking forward to seeing your long missed relative and expecting you will enjoy the visit, where do you think your Attention will be once you arrive?  Probably seeking them out, don’t you think?

Put it in your mind you’ll have a great or terrible time, and you’re programming yourself to do just that. This is what the Power of Intention is all about.

With the Intention of enjoying seeing them and the attentive action of going to the affair, you’ve guaranteed your good time.

Do you think this might work on a larger scale, daily, in your life and work and other relationships? You might not have real-ized this yet, but the outcome you expect and intend to have is very often the one you get.

How do you feel about that?

Have a wonderful and joyous Thanksgiving holiday, intent on appreciating all your blessings. And you will!
