I want to share with you a concept that I call it the 3-legged stool. We’ve all seen the legged stools at some point in our lives.  If you would rather watch a video on the 3 Legged Stool idea, you can scroll to the bottom of this article and check out the video.

To become successful in this industry it requires 3 Legs. I am not speaking of 3 downline teams, but there are 3 important factors, understandings, mindsets, if you will.

(1) SKILL SET DEVELOPMENT

You must develop the right skill sets. Most people attempting to get their organization off the ground, just go into the marketplace without a game plan or business launch system from their sponsor, they don’t really learn any new skill sets, they’re just kind of what I call ignorance on fire.

From time to time, when they’re really excited, they might get a few customers, but eventually they have to learn the right skill sets to do this business. 

Can you imagine signing a application to become a dentist one day, and then attempting to pull someone’s tooth out of their mouth the next?

Similar types of behavior has become the norm with the network marketing business model.  To think systematic, sequential training, is not required to maximize your network marketing success is naive.  Yes, I believe that with the right mentorship network marketing provides the best opportunity in the world for average people with above average desire to create financial independence, and if they choose, over time, true wealth.

The network marketing business model is the simplest, yet most complex business model in the world.

It is not difficult, it’s simple, repetition is the key to learning and you just do it over and over and over enough and you get it and it’s just a simple process, if you have the correct launch training and understand how to generate leads without going broke. 

The skill sets are not a difficult task if you have somebody that can teach you the right skill sets.  Unfortunately in network marketing we have developed a culture of the blind-leading-the blind.  Most of the people with leadership titles in this profession are just hard working people that others like hanging out with.

(2) MINDSET DEVELOPMENT

Number 2 is the right mindset, and that’s the hard part because we get so wrapped up in the emotions of who joins, who doesn’t join,  who buys and who doesn’t buy. 

Somebody that joins you gets started, they quit or don’t do a thing and we get so frustrated sometimes. I know I have throughout the years, until I finally learned anything anybody does is a BONUS!  The only person I can depend on and control their activity is the person staring at me back in the mirror.  The same goes for you.  Most people are wired in to let the acceptance, or success of someone else determine their success.

If it is to be, it’s up to me. I just have to do what I know I can do every day and then let everything else play out the way it’s supposed to and not get too emotionally wrapped up in the process. That is a lot easier said than done, when you see intelligent people make the same mistakes over and over because they get tangled up emotionally with the network marketing business.

There is not just one mindset to become successful in network marketing, there are multiple mindsets.  Who is teaching you the mindsets necessary for network marketing success?  Your sponsor, who has never had significant success with this business model?

Network marketing is different than any other business model, why do you think that would be?  I could go to Chef school, open a restaurant and then practice my craft.  If I am good, I will probably have a successful restaurant.  However with network marketing it is ultimately not about your personal skill sets, and mindsets, because you must develop a team of Chef’, so to speak. This is a very important distinction, that I am certain most network marketers never quite internalize.  Proper mindset development is the most important thing a leader must do for their team.  It is so, important that I actually recorded a double audio program, just on this topic.  It is called MLM Mindsets, we don’t make this available on our website but you can find it on Amazon.

Jim Rohn’s got some awesome information, awesome material. We’ve got a program called Programming Your Mind for Success that really gets into the mindsets of what it takes to do this business.  You need to find great mindset mentors with proven track records and avoid all the other Fake it till you make it gurus hanging around this industry.

(3) TIMING OF THE OPPORTUNITY

I understand that over the next couple of  paragraphs  I am going to upset 90% of the people that read this article, but the third factor that is really important and overlooked by people and that’s being in the right company at the right time in history, It’s timing.

You know, when I first got involved in this industry, it was in 1980 and I got involved with an awesome company, awesome product line, New York Stock Exchange company, they’re still in business today, 50 years later. They’ve done awesome, it is a great company, I fell in love with it, I fell in love with my first company, which most people do.

And because of that, I missed Al Williams and I missed Herbalife. I should have jumped in both of those companies, I’ve talked about that with on multiple podcast episode, but I missed it because I was so into my first company and so committed and dedicated to it. But the truth is, looking back it is easy to see.  That company, their major growth from ‘75 to 1978 and I joined in 80. I missed the big push.

My second company I heard about 2 years before I got involved with it. I saw the presentation, it made total sense, I knew I could do it, but I had a lot of baggage because of the 5 years I’d spent with my first company; and like many, I hold told myself “Never Again”. I never wanted to have my income depend upon somebody else again and everything that all of us go through that have been down this road.

To make a  long story short, I got involved with my second company 2 years after I was initially shown the opportunity.  (For the record the guy that initially showed me the program, I never heard from again after his initial follow up)  That is one of the reason we teach a concept called eagle file, those of you that are regular listeners of our MLM Success Podcast and  No Fluff Network Marketing Podcast have heard me share the Eagle File system many times.

Anyway we built an awesome team and went to the top in 18 months, qualifying for every incentive the company offered.   We built a  strong 6-figure income, president’s Advisory Council member, top 10% of income earners in the company, etc. etc.

However the leaders that had joined that company the 2 years before me had not worked any harder than I worked were making millions of dollars.  Don’t  misunderstand what I am saying here.   I was happy for those leaders and satisfied with the growing income I had built. 
My only point is that if I had joined that company two years earlier when I first saw it I believe I would have created a million dollar income in those first two years instead of  ¼ million.  Five years into this awesome run, the company decided to make a major shift in the product they were offering, I knew I had to pivot, because my belief in the new products was just not there.

It was at this time, I  got involved with a company in the very beginning, when the owner hired me to develop the training system before their launch. 

I became the number one distributor, and the timing was right, the product was right, it was a category creator, it was new, it was a hot trend in weight loss.  I put the skill sets, and mindsets I had learned over the years into ACTION and built a team of over 60,000 distributors that did over 100 million dollars in wholesale product sales.  I earned millions of dollars.  More importantly we made a positive impact on the financial lives of thousands f people.  We developed more five, six and seven figure earners on our team than any generic network marketing teacher or trainer in the profession today.

My point is this, those first 5 years is when I developed the skill sets and the mindsets, I really didn’t make very much money. I mean, I was able to leave my job at IBM after 5 years, but what I learned during that time, that was the education, that is where the skill sets and the mindsets where ultimately developed ON PURPOSE.

Most experienced network marketers have learned what they have learned have learned through osmosis.  Because of that many leaders have missed important classes along their journey.  The purpose of this website, and our podcast is to try to help serious, career minded leaders, fill in the pieces of the puzzle.  I certainly don’t know everything, and have been in a constant learning mode all my adult life, but I have some answers, I have the experience, and a documented track record.  I am not someone who will tell you what you want to hear, just so I can sell you what I want to sell you.

So when I got involved with my second company we went to the top in 18 months, it was because this time I had the third leg of the stool.   The timing was much better with that company than it was with my first company. My first company, their major growth was over by the time I joined.  Yes,  it was and still is, a good, solid, credible company.  

I could have stayed there and over time probably made 6 figures a year and that wouldn’t have been bad life.   However, I’m saying you have to have the skill sets, mind sets, and timing to maximize your upside potential.  It takes all 3 legs of the stool.  Building a network marketing team is THE SAME WORK no matter what company you are with, so it really comes down to what do YOU PERSONALLY WANT? 

Many times over the years, I have thought what my life would look like if I had just stayed with my first company.  It is true, some rapper, I think it was Biggie that said “Mo Money, Mo Problems”.   

Make no mistake about it, network marketing is the most challenging business model in the world.  But personally, I believe it is worth it.

Within 18 months with the right mentorship and consistent activity in the market place most people can have the foundational skill sets and mindsets developed that will serve them well the rest of their network marketing career.

I didn’t say after 18 months of hanging around on your uplines zoom meetings!  I said it takes 18 months of the RIGHT mentorship and consistent activity.

So during my time in the first company, I developed the skill sets and mind sets. And eventually, you have to stop, plant somewhere, find the right mentor and develop the proper skill set and mindsets if you expect to maximize your potential with the network marketing business model.

In today’s market environment people treat it like a lottery ticket instead of a real business.  They are there for a couple months  collect all the fast start bonuses they can then they join the next deal and the next deal and the next deal and the next deal, and they never stop find the right mentor and develop the skill sets and the mindsets necessary for long term success and financial independence.

Trying to build a network marketing team with the skill sets and mindsets you ENTER the business with is like someone who has never skated on ice attempting to become a professional hockey player.

 When I left my second company, my check was $23,000 the month before I resigned. 

I told my wife.  “I’m going to resign and I’m going to join this brand-new company,” and she said, “You’re absolutely nuts.”

She said, “Dale, you’ve worked so hard, for so long, we’ve got a huge organization in 3 different countries, we make $15,000+ a month if you don’t even walk outside the house, why would you leave that?”

It was because of TIMING.  I said, “Because if what I’m seeing is right, then opportunity will set us up for the rest of our life, and if it doesn’t work out, then I already have the skill sets in the mind sets developed.I can go anywhere and find a product or company that I believe in and I’ll build it wherever I go. So I’m not worried about that.   If we are in front of the trend I think we are, great, if not, at least I tried.

So from $23,000, my first check with this new company was $683 and my second check was like $1300.   My wife, parents, everyone in my world thought I had made a terrible mistake resigning from a company where I was earning ¼ million dollars a year.  But I believed in the timing of the product, and honestly for me it has always been more about playing the game, more than the money anyway.

Thankfully by the end of that first year, my monthly income  was approaching $70,000. So, I was right and it worked out great, but my point is simply this:

One of the biggest mistake people make when evaluating network marketing opportunities is they don’t look deep enough.  They never really ask themselves important questions,  The first being, What do I really want from my network marketing business?  I have always believed network marketing is a personal development program with an opportunity attached.  It is the opportunity to create life altering, residual income.   If you want to make a few hundred extra bucks a month, I don’t recommend the network marketing business model.

If you are looking  for a career change, the opportunity to make a positive impact on the life of thousands of people then network marketing is the business model for you.  The next questions you should consider are …
Do you have the right mentor?

Have you developed the proper skillsets? Are you willing to?

Have you developed the proper mindsets? Are you willing to?

People make the mistake of looking at leaders in companies and thinking, my knowledge, skill sets, and mindsets are as strong as theirs, so I should be able to accomplish what they have done.

However that may not be accurate.

The bottom line reality is, when they started it was a different time,  a different place.  If you’re with a company that you believe in who provides high quality products and services awesome.    Stay with them, find the right mentor and refine your skill sets and DEVELOP the proper mindset.

The majority of people in network marketing companies hang out waiting for a product, service, upline, company, or fu fu dust to land or be sprinkled on them to make them successful.

Where ever you are, daily work on the development of your skill sets and mindsets. 

At some point an opportunity will come to you where the timing is right and you will be able to get involved early, take your developed skill sets and your mindsets and explode it.    

They key being you must develop the proper skill sets and mindsets, now and understand it is an ongoing,
daily way of life.

Don’t think that it’s going to happen just because you have 1 leg of the stool.  Right now you may be in the right place at the right time with the right company however that doesn’t entitled you to great financial success.  Timing is just 1 leg of the stool.

I was back in Kentucky at our office this week and I was looking through some photographs from an event.  It was the first from … the company that I was able to make millions and millions of dollars with. 

There was about 90 people in attendance.  The picture was of people standing in a line waiting to go to the front of the room and give their income testimony.

I counted, 17 people in that line, they were are part of my team. 

I look at the picture and I thought to myself, you know, a year later 16 of the 17 people were no longer in that business, the one person that was went on make a strong 6-figure income.

I hadn’t talked to him in probably several years and I saw him in Orlando about 4 or 5 months ago and we had dinner, the previous month with the company that he’s with now, his income was over 60,000 for that month.

He learned the skill sets and mindsets years ago when he was on my team.  He and his wife got involved with a category creating company in when it launched about 3 years ago.

I can give you example after example and testimony after testimony of people I have mentored and worked with personally over the years who all have gone through this process.

I can promise you if you attempt to build your business with the skill sets and mindsets you enter the network marketing profession with, YOU WILL END UP LIKE THE 16 PEOPLE  I talked about earlier, who made money in the beginning only to leave the company over time because what they were doing couldn’t duplicate!

Network marketing is a different business.  It is different than any other entrepreneurial endeavor, because it not about you, it is about YOUR TEAM.

To stack the odds for success in your favor, and to maximize your true upside potential don’t make the mistake of not accepting this fact.  Not really coming to grips with this fact early is the number one mistake made by good people in this profession.    No matter what your background, you must FIND A MENTOR.  Develop the right skill sets, mindsets.    If and when the right opportunity comes your way that is a true category creator,  you must consider making a pivot if you want to become a million dollar earner in this profession.

In wrapping up this article, I cannot stress strongly enough that BEING IN THE RIGHT COMPANY AT THE RIGHT TIME IS NO GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS.

Building teams takes a special group of skill sets and mindsets that can be developed.   The real product in network marketing is people, if you build people, people will build the business.

Now you are aware of the 3 Legged Stool, I hope you internalize this concept and use these the ideas to maximize your success.  As always if you have questions, need clarification, or have comments, please enter them below!

After 35 years in this industry and helping thousands of people progress and move forward there is not a day goes by where someone is not asking me How to Become Good in Network Marketing, How to Become Successful in network marketing, or how to I “Get Success” Dale?  In this article I am going to give you the real scoop.

First of all I have a couple of questions for you.

What do you REALLY want from your network marketing business?  Why this business model instead of the thousands of others that are promoted online?  I have heard it said that the quality of our life is in direct proportion to the quality of questions we ask ourselves, and then answer them …. TRUTHFULLY.

What do you currently do for a living right now?

For example purposes let’s say you are an airplane pilot. What would you think if I walked up to you in an airport and asked you how do you fly an airplane?

That is how I feel when someone asks me how to become successful in network marketing.  That question depends upon the person, their background, their transferable skill sets, their willing to be mentored, and many other very important factors that can not all be answered in one article.  If somebody learned to fly in a day, would you want to ride with them on their first flight?

My advice, is if you find someone online who is going to share with you the Secret to get network marketing success in 3 easy steps, you should run.  I can promise you they are getting ready to tell you what you want to hear so they can sell you what they want to sell you.

Becoming a good network marketer is really no different than any other skillsets you have acquired in your life.Click To Tweet

I believe it takes 18 months, of focused daily actions to develop the foundation that will allow you to live a lifestyle most people can never comprehend. I talk about this is detail in the free online workshop here:  18 Months to MLM Success.

You may be a great cook, play a musical instrument very well, be good at driving and 18-Wheel Truck, be a talented public speaker and the list goes on and on. The great news about the network marketing business model is that over time, all the skill sets and mindsets required to become successful, and a good network marketer can be developed by average people, if they find the right mentorship and take Intelligent Action.

I believe intelligent action is a very important concept for those that want to become good in network marketing to wrap their minds around.

  1.  Intelligent Action

I guess I was born with entrepreneurial DNA. I can’t remember a time in my life where I was not in business. From finding, cleaning, and turning in pop bottles for the 2 cent deposit when I was five years old to being a principle in a 100 million dollar company with nearly 80 staff members and over 60,000 independent contractors.

At this point in my journey I would say without question, the reason most people that think they want to become entrepreneur’s fail is ……….

1) FEAR OF REJECTION
2) FEAR OF FAILURE

I have no doubt that many people reading this article simply need to stop searching for NEW INFORMATION and simply FOUS on conquering those fears. They are not going to just one day magically leave you, you have to stomp them out and replace them
with empowering thoughts. Replacing old limitting belief programming and replacing it with success programming is something I did intentionally, consciously, daily, early in my career.
I talk about that in detail here:

www.ProgrammingYourMind.com

As I write this, I realize that there are some people who have no fear, who also fail. Not because they are afraid to take action, but because they don’t think.

Honestly most entrepreneurs have a READY ––F I R E — AIME mentality. They take action after action with rarely aiming (thinking) until after the fact.

Action takers are always the money makers! If you take consistent, daily, INTELLIGENT actions over time, they will move your business and your life forward you will succeed. Congratulations for being here, by reading this post you are taking intelligent action, You are setting the proper example for those on your team & companies.

Before I let you go, let me as you another quick question, where on the chart do you fall?

#1 Afraid to talk to their momma

v

v

#10 Talk to Anybody, Anywhere

Both the #1 and the #10 are going to have challenges with the network marketing business model. The challenges a #1 faces are obvious to everyone. However the challenges #10 have are much deeper and hidden, especially in the beginning of their career. They usually attract followers very quickly and receive a lot of recognition. However this business is not about developing followers. It is about helping people on your team maximize their personal leadership abilities.

It is hard to help people develop attributes when you never had to develop them personally. Does that make sense?

Think about it from a skill standpoint. Playing the banjo, driving an 18 wheeler, or sewing a dress. You name the skill, it doesn’t matter. Building a real, duplicating network marketing team happens based upon learned skill sets and mindsets which can be taught.  Natural abilities which allow you to develop followers will only take you so far.

The number one mistake made by talented people is they think they can maximize the network marketing business model with the skill sets and mindsets, they ENTER the profession with.

It takes INTELLIGENT ACTION to build a well trained duplicating team. That is why we try our best to communicate in all our podcasts, and training systems. When the right people are ready to hear, they hear.

I believe that at some point, logic, reason, wisdom, and INTELLIGENT ACTION will hit a tipping point within this profession, returning it to the foundational roots, and personal development and responsibility roots it originated from.

If you had the ability to log on to this website, and read this article to this point then I believe you can become successful in network marketing.  Not today, not tomorrow, not next month, but over time, if you learn from the right mentorship and take intelligent action daily.

The podcast here are a great place to start.

After 35+ years in this industry I have come to the conclusion that there are two distinct type of network marketing gurus in the market today.  If you are looking for a network marketing coach, a great upline sponsor, I hope you find these insights beneficial. I call this the tale of two network marketing gurus.

If you are a newbie looking for a network marketing guru to join your team or promote your product, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME, it isn’t going to happen.  This article is worth you reading:  The Land of 10,000 Un-Recruited Heavy Hitters.  If you are involved in another business model and need guidance or help, CLICK HERE.

The Story of Two Network Marketing Gurus

I understand that I repel those who treat their business more like a social gathering than a real business.  I have said many times, if all you ever want is a part-time gig I believe there are better options than network marketing. I understand many network marketing gurus disagree with that statement,but I think they miss the ALL YOU EVER WANT part of that statement.

So since you are reading this, I would sincerely appreciate your thoughts and feedback on this subject.

I believe the power of network marketing is it gives average people with above average desire the opportunity to generate wealth.

So here is my question.

When we don’t take the time to really get it (Internalize) that which is important,  does it makes it harder in the future to recognize and internalize that which is REALLY IMPORTANT?

That is my question for you.

Not just in our business, but life?  Don’t we see this in politics, and really all aspects of life?  Some people are so self reliant and close minded they can see through a key hole with both eyes. It is though they don’t have the ability to really Internalize WISDOM OF THE AGES SUCCESS PRINCIPLES because they think they already have all the answers.

I know that “knowledge without action leads to self delusion.”   The network marketing profession is full of knowledgeable people that have never really conquered fear of failure and fear of rejection that hang around this industry in a state of false pride and delusion.  I know that, I think we all see that we see that every time we log into one of our social media accounts.  If they have any success at all the are quickly promoted to network marketing gurus status, and that is when things can get way out of control.

At some time we have all read the parable of the talents.  The dude that buried his one talent had it taken away. Those that use their talents have more added.  What about our positive, insightful thoughts?

Believe it or not, when I was younger I  sang like a song bird.  Today, I couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket.   Zig Ziglar talked about what would happen to the use of our arm if we tied it to the side of our body for a month and didn’t use it? I think it was Zig, it may have been Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Anyway, my point being is weekly I communicate with many network marketing newbies, future leaders, those will leadership titles, real leaders and company owners.  A wide range of people.

Many seem to be happy for me to tell them the same thing over and over.  It is almost like they ARE NOT ABLE to say THIS IS IMPORTANT, and I need to make it part of my daily operation and natural thought process by internalizing this concept through repetition.

It is like people would rather waste more and more time on Foo Foo dust, than internalize that which is really important.  There are really only 7 Key areas of life. With the right focus and internalization of what is important can’t we all continue to move forward in all areas of life?


Success is living your live working towards worthy goals.

If that is what is going on, they also seem to become more hard headed and unable to hear logic and wisdom as time goes on.  Just take one night and switch your TV back and forth from CNN to FOX and you will see exactly what I am talking about.   They are talking about the exact same story but seem to struggle to come to logical conclusions because they are more concerned about political agendas.

It seems people have become more consumed with personal agenda’s, and
being entertained than focusing on the things in life that really move the needle forward.

Personal feelings about the current administration, keep these talking heads from applying logic and wisdom to any given situation.  The number of times someone has been proven wrong seems to not matter in today’s fake news and mlm guru world.

It is sad to think when we don’t take the time to really get it (Internalize) that which is important that it possibly makes it harder in the future to recognize the difference between truth and fluff.

I understand that we don’t know what we don’t know.  That is one reason why I am always inviting people to call me out on anything I share on this website or in our podcasts that doesn’t make logical sense, and founded in wisdom of the ages principals.

However it is all around us.   Common sense seems to be becoming less and less common.  It is becoming harder for people to think.  They seem to have decision constipation. 

They can’t buy anything they truly need unless 20 random people on social media give it 5 stars. In some cases, they ended up investing money in things they don’t wan’t for the same reason, social media stars. Really?

I know that  “Knowledge without action leads to self delusion”  (See guru 2 below)

My question is.  Is it possible that when we are exposed to logic, reason, and wisdom and don’t take the time to “capture those thoughts and internalize them” that in the future they become harder to recognize?

NETWORK MARKETING GURU ONE

Recently I had a listener of our podcasts send me an audio clip of a very popular network marketing guru where he was basically bragging about the fact that he never listen to Jim Rohn or many motivational speakers when he was building his team.   The question they asked me was is this as horrifying to you as it is me?

Of course but,  I wasn’t surprised but that made it no less horrifying.

NETWORK MARKETING GURU TWO

The same day I received another email from someone talking about another very popular trainer telling me  “He sure knows how to talk the talk, & he wants all of us to think he walked the walked. However those that know his track record understand all he ever did was climb in other people’s back pocket”

At least NETWORK MARKETING GURU TWO listened and internalized wisdom.  The fact he was never able to implement that wisdom in the market place and move forward on his own is another issue.  My perception of him from the beginning was he was a pocket jumper, and over the years his track record has proven that to be the case.

I had a company owner tell me this week.  The conscientious is he was an ok builder, but he is a great trainer.  My response was simply, I don’t agree with the conscientious.  He climbed in the back pocket of __________ and he has become a great seminar promoter.  The ability to promote seminars, has nothing to do with the ability to teach someone how to sequentially build a team.

NETWORK MARKETING GURU TWO

He never took the time to internalize wisdom.  Anyone who has taken the time to internalize wisdom of the ages principles can listen to this guy for 10 minutes and it becomes immediately obvious that he never has. 

Maybe he was the #1 earner of a pyramid scheme he calls a network marketing company before becoming a full time consultant and trainer.  The truth is his money comes from telling people what they want to hear, so he can sell them what he wants to sell them.  He has spent very little time on mindset, his focus is marketing, and for people to maximize their upside potential with this profession skill set and mindset is more important than marketing.

The obvious question for you to ask before deciding what network marketing guru, upline, or coach you should hire or follow is, Name one person that you personally recruited and helped get to full time income status.   

You can talk about all the gurus you hang out with now, but who did you personally recruit and help get them to that level, isn’t that the real question?  Especially if you are getting advice on how to rank up in your MLM company?

He is all about selling what he wants to sell.

I believe that the network marketing profession has been sold so much Foo Foo dust since 2000 that many are not able to recognize the difference between spiel and wisdom as I talk about in detail in the free training course here:  http://www.MLMScam2.com



Honestly,  even though I have been actively involved in this profession all my adult life, I had no idea how far off course everything had become until I decided to engage emotionally back in August of 2015 when we started our podcasts.

Later tonight I am conducting an interview on our podcast with Will Zanders, who recently became the top earner in his company.  It will be one, you don’t want to miss. 

He is a MLM Training Club & 27% Success Club member that I know has taken the time to make wisdom of the age’s principles part of who he is.

I know the majority of the people reading this article are doing the same thing.  You, like Will are doing all you can to avoid the Foo Foo dust and implement proven wisdom of the ages mindsets and duplicable systems into your organizations.
The number of people in this profession that who are internalizing wisdom daily and making it part of their personal thought process, and then overcoming there fears and systematizing the growth of their team is growing.  

I believe that over time Wisdom, Knowledge, and Truth prevail.

I applaud all of you who have caught the vision of returning this profession to its roots on which it was founded upon.  If we continue to take responsibility &  build people, people will build the business.

I respect your thoughts and opinions, so what do you think?

Is it possible when we don’t take the time to really internalize and focus on that which is important,  do you feel it makes it harder in the future to recognize and internalize that which is REALLY IMPORTANT?

If you are in the process of looking for a network marketing guru, network marketing coach or great sponsor, I hope this article will help you, STOP, don’t be sold, and look behind the curtain.  The number one question you can ask a network marketing guru is:

“Tell me about someone you have personally sponsored, and helped get to a full time income?”  Then check out their references. 

Am I saying that if a self-proclaimed MLM gurus cannot answer that question, you shouldn’t be listening to them, that depends.  They may still be actively building and on their way, in that case I would ask, who is your mentor.  The answer to that question will give you deep insights about who they are and the philosophies that have bought into,  make sense?

If they are a full-time trainer and or consultant then they should be able to give you multiple of examples. If you have questions or comments you can post them below, or click here and I will respond personally to you.

I am asked quite often asked,  “Dale what is the best network marketing audio book you would suggest?

The answer always depends on the person asking the question.  I believe that all skills are learned sequentially. So the first thing I need to know is where are you on your journey?

What are the skill sets and mindsets you need to be developing at this specific time and place on you journey?

To become a network marketing Super Star you only need to become a pro at 5 core fundamentals, as we share in detail in the free workshop here:  http://www.mlmhelp.com/5core 

They are ……

1) Launch Your Business

2) Master 5 Ways to Generate Leads

3) Master a Customer Acquisition System with a Referral Component

4) Master a 2-Step Recruiting Process

5) Create a Team Member Retention Program

Network Marketers -- STOP ! Learn the Fundementals -- - YouTube

Without question the challenge we face in network marketing with people that are natural learners, is they don’t learn sequentially.  There is no plan to their learning.  They hear about a create new audio book and they buy it.  I would like for you to think about the concept of Sequential learning.  If you think about any skill set you have mastered in your life, you probably had a great teacher (menotor) who taught you in a very logical, sequential order.  You cannot teach Algebra to those who haven’t learned basic addition yet as I always like to say.
Your time is the most valuable asset you have.  Learning tips and trick here and there is a very frustrating way to try to master any business model or skill.   I talk about this in great detail in the article :Why Searching for Network Marketing Tips and Tricks will Delay Your Success by year.

Don’t miss understand me, I am all for audio books.  I go through at least 4 a month, but they are not in the network marketing niche.  They are more general business books, and have to do with other business and physiological topic I have an interest in.  So when people ask me, what is THE BEST network marketing audio book, I try to ask a few questions and then make a suggestion based upon where I believe them to be on their personal journey at the time that will provide them the most value.

In general I want to make sure they know about the 100+ free prodcast trainings we have available for all clients,customers, students, and potential clients to listen to online free at www.MLMSuccess.com.   Quite frankly, if some one is new, or hasn’t achieved the level of success they had hoped for at this point, this is a great place to start.  We cover dozens of important topics, from launching your business, proven ways to create leads, expanding your comfort zone, along with interviews from many successful network marketers who at one time in their career were probably exactly where you are.

As some of you know, I have written multiple best sellers over the years.  My personal audio book that I recommend most often is Change Your FINANCIAL MINDSET and create Wealth.

When it comes to audio books, make certain that the time you spend listening is on a topic that will move your life and your business forward, RIGHT NOW, based upon where you personally are on your journey.

Advanced Network Marketing Team Building Training - YouTube

I was speaking for a corporate client event last week, and a lady asked me, Dale do you really believe someone could start in the network marketing industry today and become a millionaire withing 10 years?  My answer was immediate, and I didn’t even have to think about it. ABSOLUTELY!  provided they are with a great company that provides great products to consumers and the person has the right mentor who can teach the right systems.  Then you must be willing to work hard daily in a state of inspiration.   Surprisingly this didn’t seem to scare her off,and she joined our MLM Training Club on the spot.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could really read a article, and immediately understand the path that will take you to millionaire status in network marketing?  Wouldn’t that be cool?  There ain’t no Fu Fu dust!  However I believe their is a predictable path that will take you from where you are to millionaire status with the network marketing business model, because I have personally come down this path, and helped others do so.

The sad, but true fact is many people have hit the $100,000 a year mark in network marketing that should have went on to become millionaires, but didn’t.  The fact is most of the people who get to $100,000 a year in network marketing are out of the business within 5 years.  That is not only sad to me in is horrifying.  I think it should be horrifying to ever serious career minded distributor in our industry.

If you would like to learn the predictable path to go from where you are to millionaire status, I can help you.  It is not easy, in fact I will say becoming a millionaire with the network marketing business model is one of the most difficult business endeavors in the world, but IT IS WORTH IT!

Some opportunities offer time, others money, but I have never seen a business model that can compare to the time/money freedom network marketing offers if that is what you TRULY desire.  But you have to go to work, and learn from the right mentor.

By it existence network marketing is full of people seeking advice and then taking it from people who have never done what they want to do, or those that made money in network marketing, not from building teams but from selling newbies Fu Fu Dust.

Many people live in a state of wishful thinking.  However if you are not afraid to go to work, master proven team building systems, and fall and get back up a few times, you have found the right place.

Take a look at some of the resources we offer on this page, get plugged into our free podcast and I am sure our paths will cross soon and at some point we will have the opportunity to meet, and I can provide more directional advise and systems based upon where you are on your journey at the time.

Intelligent Action

I guess I was born with entrepreneurial DNA. I can’t remember a time in my life where I was not in business. From finding, cleaning, and turning in pop bottles for the 2 cent deposit when I was five years old to being a principle in a 100 million dollar company with nearly 80 staff members and over 60,000 independent contractors.

At this point in my journey I would say without question, the reason most people that think they want to become entrepreneur’s fail is ……….

1) FEAR OF REJECTION
2) FEAR OF FAILURE

I have no doubt that many people reading this article simply need to stop searching for NEW INFORMATION and simply FOUS on
conquering those fears. They are not going to just one day magically leave you, you have to stomp them out and replace them
with empowering thoughts.

This is the program that has helped many people.

www.ProgrammingYourMind.com

As I write this, I realize that there are some people who have no fear, who also fail. Not because they are afraid to take action, but because they don’t think.

Honestly most entrepreneurs have a READY ––F I R E — AIME mentality. They take action after action with rarely aiming (thinking) until after the fact.

Action takers are always the money makers! If you take consistent, daily, INTELLIGENT actions over time, they will move your business and your life forward you will succeed. Congratulations for being here, by reading this post you are taking intelligent action, You are setting the proper example for those on your team & companies.

Before I let you go where on the chart do you fall?

#1 Afraid to talk to their momma

v

v

#10 Talk to Anybody, Anywhere

Both the #1 and the #10 are going to have challenges with the network marketing business model. The challenges a #1 faces are obvious to everyone. However the challenges #10 have are much deeper and hidden, especially in the beginning of their career. They usually attract followers very quickly and receive a lot of recognition. However this business is not about developing followers. It is about helping people on your team maximize their personal leadership abilities.

It is hard to help people develop attributes when you never had to develop them personally. Does that make sense?

Think about it from a skill standpoint. Playing the banjo, driving an 18 wheeler, or sewing a dress. You name the skill, it doesn’t matter. Building a real, duplicating network marketing team happens based upon learned skill sets and mindsets which can be taught.  Natural abilities which allow you to develop followers will only take you so far.

The number one mistake made by talented people is they think they can maximize the network marketing business model with the skill sets and mindsets, they ENTER the profession with.

It takes INTELLIGENT ACTION to build a well trained duplicating team. That is what we try our best to communicate in all our podcasts, and training systems. When the right people are ready to hear, they hear.

I believe that at some point, logic, reason, wisdom, and INTELLIGENT ACTION will hit a tipping point within this profession, returning it to the foundational roots, and personal development and responsibility roots it originated from.

What about you?

This article was written by Jason Forrest and
originally was published in Entrepreneur Magazine.

My wife Dawn shared this article with me a few
days after Tiger won the Masters Golf Tournament
at the age of 43. (Old in Gofers Years)

This article touched me. I kept saying Truth is Truth!

We all know network marketers who need to read this
article, I hope you will share it with them!

We hope this article will inspire all who are playing the
game, and encourage those who are thinking about
RUNNING ONE MORE TIME!

@TruthisTruth

Tiger woods spent 11 years in the wilderness, both professionally and personally. And on one brilliant, sunny afternoon in Augusta, Georgia on April 14, 2019, he proved a lesson that should reverberate through boardrooms and offices throughout the world.

The lesson: no matter how seemingly massive, every one of your setbacks is just a comeback in disguise. 

Most thought they’d never see a sight like Sunday’s again: Tiger Woods, at the peak of his game at the vaunted Masters Tournament, pulling on the fabled green jacket given to the tournament’s winners. Before Sunday, Woods hadn’t won a major tournament in 11 years, and it had been 14 since he’d won the Masters. And yet there he was, a 43-year-old Tiger Woods in all his glory — practically back from the dead — Masters champion once again in 2019. It was a story as unlikely as any in the history of sports.

And the reason is that Woods fought each of his battles in public, for all to see.

One of the most decorated golfers of all time and a truly transcendent presence in sport, Woods’ star began its tumble in 2009 when a personal scandal engulfed his marriage and led to an extremely public divorce. Four years later, Woods missed his first ever Masters tournament with a back surgery that started a tailspin.

Related: Why Mindset Mastery Is Vital to Your Success

His back troubles compounded year after year, and he consistently missed qualification for tournaments he was used to winning. After four more back surgeries in the next few years, Woods was arrested for driving under the influence in 2017, and he quickly checked himself into addiction rehab. If the majority of fans hadn’t written off Woods’ once-brilliant career as a total loss already, it was hard to find anyone who expected Woods to win another tournament period, let alone one as massive as the Masters.

Woods’ one-stroke win at the Masters is a lesson. It proves the value of mindset, and how an unconquerable mind can overcome anything. And the incredible news is that the path Woods took to his unbelievable comeback is available to you today. All you have to do is decide.

You can follow Tiger’s lead by engineering your own comeback from any situation you face: a lost job, a missed promotion, a divorce, a failed project. Do what Tiger did and create your very own Masters comeback by following these mindset-strengthening steps.

1. Control your self-talk.

Affirmations form the backbone of an unleashed life. In a sport as cerebral as golf, it would’ve been easy for Woods to dwell in the darkness he’d experienced over the previous few years. But nobody achieves success by telling themselves negative stories. They replace, “Here we go again” with “I can’t wait until this shot lands on the green, right next to the pin.”

When everything seems off, and life appears to be spiraling, notice the way you speak to yourself. How are you reinforcing the setback with negative self-talk? Once you identify recurring negative thoughts and phrases, choose to borrow positive self-talk from times in your life when you feel strong and confident. Replace the negative with the positive, repeat your affirmations over and over, and watch your setback turn into a comeback.

2. Break your habit loop.

The habit loop forms around three steps: a trigger, a response and a reward. Woods’ addiction (he admitted an addiction to painkillers in 2017) was forming a negative habit loop in his life. He’d experience pain or stress and he’d respond with painkillers, and his reward was briefly eliminating that pain. But he was numbing it, not dealing with it, and that only compounded the problem.

So he broke his negative habit loop and replaced it with something more positive. He got help. He still felt the trigger, and he still got a positive reward, but his response now wasn’t to turn to addiction-forming chemicals. His response was turning to more beneficial things that built him up instead of tearing him down. Recognize in your life where your responses to external triggers aren’t serving you — maybe you get anxious or angry or uncertain in certain situations — and control them so you can unleash your results.

3. Unlearn and relearn.

Woods wasn’t just ailing physically. He was also inside his own head about his swing. His repeated back surgeries had a negative effect on Woods’ actual golf swing, to the point that he’d learned all this negative programming that wasn’t serving what was once the purest swing in the game.

So he had to unlearn the hitches and stutters and negative influences on his swing. He had to go back to his roots, but first, he had to unlearn all the head trash keeping him from doing the things he knew to do 100% of the time. This took time and repetition, but he had to purge those things from his mental processor so he could get back to the swing that won him tournaments. And he did. Just the same, find those negative things you’ve adopted that you need to unlearn to push yourself to the next level.

4. Conquer your self-image.

Nobody had more excuse to shrink into the shadows than Woods. He’d been battered in the public eye (sometimes for good reason), and he heard time and time again that his career was over. His back was shot. His mentality was shattered. His swing was gone. He was too old. Might as well pack it up and go home.

But Woods overcame that. How? The self-image he had of himself was different than the self-image the world gave him. Yes, he’d made mistakes. But his rebuilt self-image was that of a champion. He no-doubt visualized himself holding that green jacket thousands of times before he actually did it. Just the same, you can’t achieve that next level of success if you don’t have a positive self-image of yourself doing it in your own mind. Your mind is your own greatest ally. Use it wisely.

5. Talent is just effort in disguise.

So many people wrote off Woods’ early success as that of a gifted child prodigy. “He was just born with it,” so many said. That obviously neglects thousands of hours put in training, but how do you square that with what happened in 2019? How is it possible that he could overcome so many negative external and internal factors and win on the sport’s greatest stage when nobody thought it was possible?

It wasn’t simply talent. It was because he put in the effort nobody else would. He showed up to practice and committed himself to rehabbing his back even when nobody thought it was possible. He fixed his swing, kept in shape, and pushed himself harder. Always resist the temptation to attribute someone’s success to genetics. The story Woods wrote in 2019 is proof that effort is infinitely more important than whatever skills you were born with.

You can create your own Tiger Woods story. All it takes is a decision.

How to Maximize A NEW NEVER BEFORE SEE technology to grow your network marketing team - YouTube

Before we even start, let me say that I understand the headline “New Technology Guaranteed to Grow Your Marketing Team” sounds like a total fluffy, BS Spiel that the network marketing profession has been bombarded with over the past 15-20 years.

The odds are high, that if you are reading this you know me, or know of me. You may have heard one of our podcasts or perhaps you are a regular reader of our articles here at MLM Help.   If you are familiar with the content we provide then you know that no one has a higher disdain for the hype and false information that has taken over this profession over the past fifteen or twenty years.

What I am going to share with you on this page TAKES MONEY OUT OF MY POCKET.  However I know in my heart and soul this is the answer (at this time and place in history) to pull this profession out of the state of dissipation it has fallen in and return organizations and companies to a state of growth.

When I say it takes money out of my pocket I mean there are other courses and products we offer through Network Marketing Support Services Inc. that make us much more profit.  Yes I am involved with the Network Marketing Magazine and the software developers on this project and have a very small financial interest.  When I say this project has been a labor of love for the industry, it has been.  Yes, I believe it will quickly become the recognized platform that all serious teams engage with. Many of our members believe  it is inevitable.  However if that never happens, the impact this platform has already had for so many distributors from multiple companies around the world has made the time, research, and countless hours  I have personally put into the 27% Success System, one of the most gratifying experiences in my business career.

If you are a newbie that is more interested in making money now than building a long-term solid business and legacy income, don’t read another word on this page.   I think you would find the podcast episode here:  TRIPPING OVER FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE TO GET TO DOLLARS  more valuable and thought provoking.

The information on this page is for:

1) Serious, career minded, distributors that want to maximize the time and personal efforts of their team members and in so doing, their personal income.

2) Newbies that are willing to work and understand to maximize your upside potential with the network marketing business model, NEW SKILL SETS & MINDSETS are REQUIRED. (I realize people don’t like to hear this, but it the truth)

3)  Those who still have the possibilities of building a duplicating team and creating the residual income stream that the network marketing business model offers, running in their blood, but have never been able to quite get over the hump and move their business forward.  The information on this page, is for you, IF you are willing to erase much of the false philosophies and unproductive habits you have become comfortable with. You cannot approach this business as you always have, and must be willing to expand your comfort zone.

4) Company owners and corporate officers who understand that maybe there is a reason Fortune 500 corporations are using this platform?  Possibly this is not just another spiel, and maybe this gamification platform is the future & best way on the planet to support our entrepreneur minded team members right now.

The only way possible to get a real understanding of the power of this platform is to experience it for yourself.
Let me say that again, because you can’t miss this statement.  THE ONLY WAY TO GET A REAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE POWER OF THIS PLATFORM IS TO EXPERIENCE IT FOR YOURSELF.  I understand you are busy, we all are, but there is nothing you can do over the next few minutes that will have a more positive impact on growth of your network marketing business than take the 97 cent test drive YOURSELF.


CLICK HERE TO DO THAT NOW!

If you are a company owner, or team leader, imagine if all of these people expressing their unsolicited, heart felt feelings about this platform were on your team.

Network Marketing Team Building - YouTube

It is hard do explain the power of this platform.  We try to relate this to something we are familiar with, and this type of Gamification platform has never been available to the network marketing business model until NOW! The best way to attempt to explain it is that we “Cultivate the Environment for Success” with the Engagement platform that focuses on Wisdom of the Ages Success Mindsets and ALSO the proven sequential development of the skill sets that are required for team members to maximize their success with the network marketing business model.

Dedicated to Your Success,

PS  I warned you in the beginning this was going to sound like
Marketing Spiel.

* 97 Cent Trial
* Free $497 A-Z Course
* 5X Your Money Back Guarantee  etc. etc.

The truth is, when I say being involved with this platform has been
one of the most gratifying experiences of my 35+ year network
marketing career, I mean it.   The leaders that now have a clear
path to grow their team, the people that have been around this
industry a couple of years and are now for the first time sponsoring
new team members and creating customers has been emotionally
overwhelming for me.  If you are a company owner, or a newbie,
this a platform that you simply MUST EXPERIENCE!

PSS  I have been surprised at the number of people who have joined
the 27% Success System who are in between companies, or not currently
building a team.  I have heard dozens of times, “I know network marketing
is the way for me to accomplish my dreams.”  When the right opportunity
presents itself, I want to have the right mindsets and proven game plan
to take advantage of it.

There are many important milestones in a network marketers career.  In this training I want to share the importance and significance of each milestone along your journey.

I have shared many times that many people have been around the industry 15 years, and like to talk about the fact that “they have 15 years experience” like it is a badge of honor.  It is no more a badge of honor that someone who has been a member of a civic organizations, church, or on the board of a non profit organization for fifteen years.

The real question is what kind of impact of you made in your 15 years.  Have you personally progressed?  I sincerely believe the answer to this question depends upon culture you have been involved in and exposed to.
THE TOP NETWORK MARKETING COMMUNITY IN THE WORLD is here.

The truth is, most people 15 years into their business have 1 mediocre year repeated 15 times.  Why? There are multiple reasons but I believe at the top of this list is a lack of understanding of milestones and the reality that the network marketing business model has become more of a social club for part-timers,  than a real business.

Leaderships primary focus seems to keep them in and autoship more than helping team members progress and systematically reach milestones and progress towards their reasons.

I hope this training webinar is valuable for you, and I hope you hit every milestone you hope to achieve. As always your comments and feedback are welcome.
