How to Fight the Winter Funk in Network Marketing
How to fight the winter funk in network marketing? Whether that New Year’s resolution has kicked your butt into gear or not, you’re probably fighting the lazies this winter. Seasonal depression is telling you not to work today. You just don’t WANNA.
Well, guess what? The only thing that’s going to change your life is EFFORT, and that means you gotta get up and make yourself do it.
Believe me, I know dragging yourself out of bed in the morning isn’t an easily attainable behavioral change. Even the military didn’t turn me into a morning person.
But according to the awesomely enlightened motivator Mel Robbins, you just have to take the same activation effort it takes to get yourself out of the bed in the morning to do ANYTHING you need to do to radically change your life. That’s it. That’s the secret.
You can go out and accomplish the impossible, scrap together the resources, and make history happen, but you can’t find someone or something else to make an effort. That’s all you, and it’s the most important ingredient of success.
How are these online business moguls making money? They put themselves out there and constantly build their brand through content marketing, most likely by making videos which I bet you’re watching on your smart phone right now. Remind me again why you haven’t made one yet? Get up, and make yourself do it.
Find the time to make progress, and you’ll build the life you’ve been longing for.
It takes a village
Don’t do it alone. Marketing may be an exercise in personal branding, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have mentors.
You can and should be looking for others you want to mirror. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and self-duplicating is at the core of a successful multi-level marketing businesses.
You SHOULD be teaching your team to do what you do, and to be better than you. Especially in SeneGence, there is no negative to training your team to outearn you. Think of the possibilities of that statement! If they surpass your rank or your sales numbers, it just means more commission for you, and that warm fuzzy feeling teachers get when the students succeed.
You should WANT your team to succeed. Great leaders invest in their followers, and genuinely care about them. What does this mean as a leader in multi-level marketing? It means providing quality training, being ever-present for them when they need you, and being a source of wisdom and support.
Network marketing is all about relationships. You don’t have to be a cheerleader-type to succeed. Entrepreneurs come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. But if you dread talking to people or answering the same questions over and over again, then network marketing isn’t for you. This is a people based business, where you are trusted to be an expert on your products, how to use them, promote them, and teach others to use them and promote them, too. It is pretty simple, and if you’re doing it right, it’s fun!
Not yet a part of the network marketing phenomenon? It’s not too late to make your year’s resolution.
