Become a REAL Network Marketing Leader

When I say Become a REAL Network Marketing Leader I don't simply mean build a large organization. In the Direct Sales industry your success is in direct relation to the quality of your leadership. If you can go out and recruit hundreds of people, that's fantastic. However, you need to keep in mind that you will benefit 10 fold if you position yourself as a REAL leader.

A leader is someone who has more intent on you becoming a success than themselves. Now at first glance this seems to be some of the same song and dance you always hear when you begin in this industry. Yes, we all know that leveraging other people's efforts is one of the greatest attributes this industry has to offer. However, what I'm really talking about is having the same sense of urgency for your team's goals as they do. Take your focus off of yourself and begin to help your team achieve their dreams. Not only will your goals happen during the process but it will be that much more rewarding in the end.

Normally a leader works more than the rest. Not necessarily in or on the business, but also on themselves. Constantly checking themselves to make sure that what they are doing is not only for the highest good of themselves, but of everyone else involved. It's easy for people to get caught up in the day to days of business and forget what they are really trying to accomplish. To become a REAL Network Marketing Leader it is on you to help your team stay focused on WHY they started this journey.

There will be times of frustration. This is common amongst Leaders. Frustration can simply be a sign that what you are trying to do is not working. This is where we lose most people, but not you! This is when a REAL leader takes a step back and figures out another strategy. Chances are you are not effectively communicating with others and you feel they should just, "Get it!" Trust me, this is the Kiss of Death and a sure fire way to build a business on your own. It's time for you to really make changes in yourself to be the person others can come to because you can maintain a focus on the end result for everyone. Snoop Dogg may have said it best when he said, "I've Paid the Cost to be The Boss."

When you Become a REAL Network Marketing Leader you will give everything you've got. I don't mean time, money, resources, calls, etc. I mean you will teach everyone how to do exactly what you do. Some people have a really hard time with this. Saying things like, "If I teach them everything, won't they steal my ideas and move past me!?" This is NOT the mindset of a Leader. Actually this is still the mindset of someone who's stuck in Corporate America where everyone is after #1, themselves. In this industry and in life, the more you give the more you get back in return.

If you think you're ready to take it to the top it's time to Let Go! Let go of the fear, let go of the excuses and let go of any past thoughts and actions that are keeping you where you are. It's time to Become a REAL Network Marketing Leader by giving of yourself and others to truly start to shine. I hope this helps you on your Journey in this great industry. Until next time, Happy Marketing!
