What is MLM? The Biggest Value is NOT the money you can make!
Whether you are new to the industry or a veteran to the MLM/ Network Marketing Industry. The question comes up “What is MLM?” I’m in Damansara, Malaysia (real close to Kuala Lumpur) and I was reflecting on what I have learned in this industry.
I remember reading Robert Kiyosaki’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad about 12 years ago. It totally changed my thinking. At that time I was in Corporate America and was in a situation that I didn’t want to be in anymore. I realized that I needed a change. As you can see from my video once I found Network Marketing/ MLM a few years later I was knew this was the industry for me. I was ready to receive a Life Changing Business Education.
In my video I cover three areas:
1) Who is Network Marketing for?
First, it’s not for everybody. I’ve realized that I’m looking for people who really are looking for me. You want to find people that are looking for a change. You are looking for people who want to be their own boss. People who want to create their own futures. Yes, you will have lots of people who just want your product or service but don’t waste your time on people who don’t really want to make a change or change the situation that they are in. Once you realize that talk is cheap and if someone REALLY wants to change their actions have to follow. You will get frustrated trying to force people into becoming something that they are not ready to work for. There are plenty of people around the world that are ready for a change, a better life, to create their futures. Work with those types of people.
2) What do you get?
Your going to get an incredible Business Education. Most people have never run their own business. They don’t know where to start, what it takes or how to make it successful. Joining a Network Marketing company is a great way to get started with a minimal investment, start part time, have little risk and you can learn how to transition from an Employee mindset to a Business Owner mindset. You will get the opportunity to be around a Success Team of support that will help you grow. It’s awesome to be in an environment where Leaders really do want you to succeed in your business.
3) What to look for?
You want to make sure you are in a company that has a general principle to “Make People Better”. You want to be part of a culture that is growing and challenging people. Teaching them prospecting, follow up, leadership, self growth, business skills, people skills, etc. that will help you become a better Business Owner. The BEST companies in our industry make this part of their overall strategy and culture. Growing the community to become better Business Owners and Leaders is one of the best gifts a company can give.
What’s interesting to me is that in my 8 years of being in the industry. I’ve learned so much about myself, the industry, different cultures, and about people. However, there is one thing that I believe is the BIGGEST VALUE that you will get in this industry.
The BIGGEST VALUE to answering What is MLM?
So as you can see I think the biggest value of Network Marketing is the Life Changing Business Education that you will get. Find a great company that supports this and find a Leadership Team that teaches this. It’s not the success that you will create that matters, it’s the person you become along the journey!
