Why Did You Join Your MLM Business? So You Could Fail?

I was thinking today about all the people who are so anti-network marketing. They have an attitude against the whole industry. But I doubt seriously if they even know one small clue about what the MLM industry is all about.

Network marketing offers anybody a chance. It doesn’t matter what your background was like – whether you were born on the “other side” of the tracks, or were born with a silver spoon in your mouth. Everybody has the same opportunity – the same chance to succeed or fail.

One of the big reasons that people quit or fail, is they don’t remember or keep in focus WHY they joined their Network Marketing business in the first place. Usually they have reasons like these:

  • Freedom from a job they hate
  • Wanting financial security, because their job isn’t providing this
  • Desiring to live life to the fullest – and have the funds to do so
  • Spend more time with my kids, spouse, parents, etc.
  • Get me out of the financial straights and debt that is drowning me
  • Satisfaction of calling my own shots, and being a winner
  • I want to be a millionaire by the time I’m 30./
  • I want to look myself in the mirror and smile, knowing I proved them all wrong.

Why did you join the ranks of the wanna-be-wealthy people – using MLM as your ticket? What was going through your brain and emotions when you realized you didn’t have to follow the loser path of all your loser friends and negative family?

One of the reasons people quit their MLM business is because there is a disconnect between what they really want from the business (why they joined in the first place) and the daily work involved that is required to build a successful business. You will be very inspired and be more motivated to excel in your business if you remind yourself every day why you initially made the decision to become involved.

What is your motivation? What kind of dreams will your business make possible? Whose lives will you be impacting and contributing to with your success? What is the vision you carry with you? How will your network marketing business impact your very life? What big plans are you seeking to accomplish?

To keep reminding yourself of these dreams, and staying connected with them takes commitment. Doing the daily activities to see your dreams become a reality takes commitment also. You will build habits that will make the difference between being just a dreamer or wishful thinker – and someone whose dreams come true because you take consistent and deliberate action.

How long do you keep on “keeping on”?  There is a sad truth that has shown consistently how many people quit right before they would have won. In other words, they do all this work, and success is right around the corner. But discouragement steps in and they quit. I suggest that you give your network marketing business at least a year. And make sure you have a good system you are tapped into, like My Lead System Pro.  Without a good system to show you how you can generate leads every day that WANT your kind of business – you probably won’t last more than 2 months in network marketing.

You can be a winner. It is no accident that you are reading this blog post. Get connected with my Tribe – on the right of this page. Get going with My Lead System Pro. Get connected with all the training inside My Lead System Pro, and you won’t know yourself in 3 months.  And don’t forget to remind yourself daily of your big WHY.

Dr Wentz – The Tireless Champion of USANA

Dr WentzDr. Wentz is a remarkable man. He received his Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. In 1974 he started Gull Laboratories as a one-man operation. He was successful inmarketing several of his own products to hospitals and clinical laboratories after gaining FDA approval for them.

In 1992 Dr. Wentz founded USANA Health Sciences, a high-tech manufacturer of nutritional foods, supplements and a personal-care product line. USANA has grown into a huge Network Marketing company with thousands of distributors in a bunch of different countries.

One thing Dr. Wentz is very passionate about is helping children in Cambodia
and Uganda who have been orphaned by diseases like HIV and malaria.
He has received numerous awards and recognition for his tireless
achievement and contribution to better health for everyone.

His father died when he was 17 and still in high school. This was
one of the most traumatic events in his life. His father died at the
“young” age of 57.  This one event became the catalyst for his
incredible drive to make a difference in the fight against the “new”
degenerative diseases.  Because of our fast-food lifestyle we have
replaced the “infectious” diseases that our grandparents suffered

Even though his various businesses have been very successful, Dr.
Wentz first of all considers himself to be a scientist, and not a
businessman. In spite of this, Dr. Wentz’ has won numerous awards and
presidential appointments because of his business knowledge and
business success.

What I think is remarkable is that Dr. Wentz chose network marketing
as the vehicle for taking his company and products mainstream. Most
people don’t realize this, but the network marketing industry has
produced more 6 and 7 figure annual earners than any other industry,
including franchises.

With the economic crisis in the US and world today, network
marketing is almost the last vehicle for developing wealth for the
average person. Many of the traditional ways of building a separate
wealth stream, like real estate and starting a small business, are harder
to do with banks not lending money and the market being so soft.

So I applaud Dr. Wentz for the fabulous job he has done. His vision
was instrumental in building a strong network marketing business that
not only has helped millions of people achieve better health, but has also
provided a great income to those who work hard and have a lead-generating
system to follow.

If you are a USANA distributor or are thinking about joining USANA, having a good lead-generating system can mean the difference between success and failure.  For step-by-step training on “how-to” generate 30 – 50 leads per day for your USANA business, click here:  MLM Lead Generation

Thank you, Dr. Wentz for bringing health and freedom to so many people.

Why Do Most Network Marketers Fail?

42-15530900Network marketing is Simple, but doing the old way (i.e. cold calling people) is NOT easy.

Don’t kid yourself!

Let me explain my view of why network marketing is notorious for having a 95% or higher failure rate..

Have you ever heard of Occam’s razor?

It states that the simplest reason for a phenomenon is almost always the best. We’ll use this theory to show why more than 95% of network marketers fail.


Most network marketers don’t succeed because what they are taught to build their business doesn’t work 95% of the time.

So we must ask the logical question, what are most new network marketers taught?

Well, it’s only fair to speak from my experience, and what I was taught was to buy and cold call leads.

Now, I’m not going to say this doesn’t work, but what I will say is that after seven months of cold calling leads for 2.5 hours a day with almost no success, this strategy doesn’t work for me.

To be honest, unless you’re a natural-born, super confident sales leader going into your network marketing business, you’ll more than likely have these same results.

Don’t get me wrong. Some people are very good at cold calling leads, but most people aren’t.

What happens to most people after they’ve spend thousands of dollars on leads with very little success after months of effort?

They run out of money. They get burned out and then . . .

They give up and quit.

Another important point contributing to why most network marketers fail is the type of leads they purchase.

Why does the type of leads network marketers buy make a difference?

Well . . .

Business opportunity leads, the leads most new network marketers are told to use, are generic. These leads answer an ad that just asks them if they want to be financially free or make money from home or something like that.

Well . . . of course they do!

But that doesn’t mean they want anything to do with YOUR network marketing program.

When the average network marketer calls these generic business opportunity leads the leads don’t know anything about the network marketer’s business and for the most part honestly don’t care.

What happens is the new network marketer hears a lot of “NOs” and “why are you calling me?”

Hearing NO all the time leads to self doubt, both about the network marketer’s own ability and the validity of their association with their network marketing company.

Negative feelings begin to fester and as I said before eventually the network marketer gives up and throws in the towel, usually within 3-6 months.

The fledgling network marketer’s perception of their business goes from one of  excited opportunity to one of complete doubt and constant negativity.

Reality follows perception, so because the new network marketer believes that there is little hope for their company or themselves,  this becomes TRUE.

That’s basically why 95% of network marketers fail if you asked me.


Tried Network Marketing before and failed? It’s not your fault. Let this rookie “unknown” marketer show you how he embarrassed the “gurus” by placing over 4,120 people in his downline in 14 short months, while pocketing over half-a-million dollars. Now he has honed his SYSTEM into an idiot-proof step-by-step can’t fail, never-cold-call-again recruiting machine on steroids! He’ll even PAY YOU to check it out. ==> MLM Lead Generation

It’s Insane! 95% MLM Failure Rate. What the Hell is WRONG? No MLM Lead Generation System!

CB048365Network Marketing has a very tarnished reputation, at least in the USA. With 95 out of every 100 people quitting after a month or two, you have to start wondering what is going on? Is it the people that aren’t qualified or is it the industry that needs overhaul?

There are two huge reasons why people quit their network marketing opportunity, and these are:

1) Lack of leads – after they run through their first list of 100 family and friends the have no one else to talk to.

2) Lack of money – they run out of money before they get their business profitable

What can be done to change these statistics so that more and more people can be winners in their MLM home business?

Here are 4 ideas that if implemented can have a huge impact on the industry. But the biggest impact will be on the individuals who have struggled and struggled in MLM and still have a burning desire to win. Let’s go.

Step 1. Develop an MLM lead generation system so you have a steady, never-ending supply of people that are looking for an opportunity. There are many companies that supply “opportunity seeker” telephone leads. These work, but not for very many people. There’s a huge failure rate here too. What I’m talking about is another system that works beautifully, because you attract ONLY the people that are already in MLM or are actually looking for a company to join.

Step 2. Cash Flow. Have a good supply of money coming in from your lead generation efforts of Step 1. How in the world do you do this? You use what’s known as a “Funded Proposal” which is a fancy term for selling your prospects an interesting and valuable marketing e-book. They buy this, because they know it will help them grow their own MLM business. A certain percentage will buy, and will help fund a never ending supply of “free” mlm leads.

Step 3. Personal Branding. This is perhaps the biggest reason why people don’t succeed. Here’s why. People aren’t looking for a company. It doesn’t really matter to them. They aren’t really looking for a product. Again, it really doesn’t matter. So what are they looking for? SOMEONE to show them the way, and lead them out of the job, and the lifestyle that they despise. They are looking for YOU! But what do they see when they find you?

You need to brand yourself as the leader that they want. It’s not that hard to do I have a system that will help you on your journey to being a network marketing leader and coach.

Step 4. Build Your Downline. The MLM lead generation that you did in steps one and two go into a funnel that ends up being your downline. Only a small percentage of those who go through your funnel end up there, but that’s OK. You have a wonderful system that keeps generating more and more leads, and you end up being one of the biggest producers in your company.

Just like starting a brick and mortar business, online MLM lead generation takes time. But I have a super system that can help you generate 50 or more leads per day in about 3 months. Many of my friends are doing this.

Unfocused and Broke! 4 Critical Steps to Financial Freedom!

Reckless personDo you find yourself unable to stay focused for more than 5 minutes on anything that has to do with websites, chat, email, Facebook, Skype, MySpace,  IM and 1000 other distractions? Join the club. Especially if you are trying to make money online. Being unfocused can lead to your painful downfall.

Chasing after the next Shiny Object will leave you in a black hole. I know. I chased shiny “get rich quick” objects until I was thousands of dollars in credit card debt. So I want to help you climb out of your black hole. It’s an addiction, it really is. Why? You just “know” that this new launch will be your ticket. And they take PayPal so it really is safe.

Step 1. STOP The Spending. Yes, a simple solution, but very critical. Stop right now spending a single dime more on ANY new launch of whatever guru’s new list building, blog riches, or google XXX strategy garbage. It may not be garbage, but it IS GARBAGE if you don’t zero in on it and make it work for you.

Step 2. UNSUBSCRIBE. But you say “I can’t unsubscribe from guru Bog. I really like what he teaches!” So if you really like him, why haven’t you made a bunch of money from Guru Bog’s CD’s, videos and e-books? More than likely, guru Bog’s material is collecting dust on your hard drive. You might not even be able to find it! Look, step 2 is simple: unsubscribe from ALL the constant barrage of Shiny Object invitation emails flooding your inbox.

You will go through withdrawals. I did. It hurts for a little while. You don’t feel loved anymore. But you start getting your life back. Is this worth it?

Step 3. Realize the deception of the next Shiny Object problem. This is short, but powerful, so listen up. We are creatures that keep looking for success. In our crazy world, spending money has somehow been equated with success, at least in our brain. So when I spend $1500 on guru Bog’s List Domination Riches in 30 Days, I feel successful.

Just spending the money makes the connection to “success.” I know this sounds crazy and stupid. But that’s how addictions work. They deceive you into believing that your are on your way to riches, when in fact you are falling deeper into your black hole.

Step 4. Stay laser focused on ONE project until you see it working. Don’t quit after a few weeks.This is so important. Follow one guru. Join only one MLM.

Drop everything else, even if you think the program will “assist” you with your ONE FOCUSED project. Usually it is just a distraction.

You can get focused and rise up out of your black hole. It takes time. But the rewards are SO worth it. I should know. I have done it. You can to.

If you have an MLM business and are struggling and want to learn how to generate your own specific MLM leads and actually have your leads pay you, then just fill in your name and email below.

MLM Prospecting – Your First 30 Seconds is Critical. Don’t Screw it Up!


The first words that come out of your mouth when you contact a brand new MLM prospect will determine to a vast degree whether that person will even respond to you in a civil manner. To emphasize the severity of the problem, I will give you a few examples of how a lot of enthusiastic newbies “assail” their MLM prospects.

A standard prospecting “cold market” approach usually startles the prospect with an awkward pitch about their product. “Do you know anyone with an aching back or joint pain? I’ve got an incredible doctor approved all-natural juice that will take all the pain away in just a few hours.” Then comes silence and the prospect says, “Pardonme, but I have to get going.”

Another thing that newbies do is they “vomit” all over their prospect. Without even knowing if the prospect is paying attention, they sit down and “show them the plan” or go through their company’s business presentation. Even if the prospect WAS interested, they would most likelysay “no thanks” because they can’t see themselves doing the same thing.

Here’s the first rule that will make a giant difference in your MLM prospecting:

1) You have only one duty and one duty only when it comes to MLM prospecting. Your approaching people is only to create curiosity. Doesn’t that really simplify everything? Think about it. All you are doing is “permission marketing” – you are finding out if the prospect is open to new ideas or closed to new ideas. And what do you do if they are closed to new ideas? That’s right! You let them go. Don’t make the mistake of trying to coerce them into being “open.”

2)How do you create curiosity? There are a few methods, but the thing to drum into your head is this prospecting stuff is not about you, your product, your company, or your compensation plan. It is about your prospect. What is she looking for? Is she even looking?

To approach people, this is how you do it:
1)You can compliment the person
2)You can ask a question  and
3)You can have opening phrases – these are my favorite! They are a great way to transition into more relationship building with the person.

Here’s a few opening phrases that arouse their curiousity:
1)”Maybe you can help me”
2)”I need your help”
3)”You know Sally, I’ve run across something I want to share with you.”
4) Here’s one more – “Do you know anyone who wants to generate 2 or 3 Thousand dollars extra each month – without altering anything that they’re doing?”

When you change your whole prospecting method, and generate curiosity, people will respond to you. You are in the relationship building business. People want someone to follow. Why can’t that someone be you? When you focus on finding out what a person really wants, you can be that leader who has the answer they are looking for.

Your first 30 seconds in MLM prospecting doesn’t have to be a scary ordeal. With the ideas presented here, you have a brand new way to approach your prospects. Remember to just be yourself, relax and have fun. Your prospect will appreciate you not being uptight. And your MLM success and freedom is now one step closer to reality. All because of a simple change in strategy with the way you do MLM prospecting.

Struggling In MLM? No Friends Left? Quitting? Attraction Marketing To the Rescue!

42-15530900Attraction marketing is a way for you to generate income from your prospects even if they never join your business. If you are struggling in your network marketing business, the BEST thing you can do is find out exactly what attraction marketing  is – and then start using it.

What is awesome about attraction marketing is it allows you to generate leads that are totally exclusive to you and not from one of the many lead companies that want your money. If you have bought thousands of biz-opp leads (like I have), having your own quality leads contacting YOU is totally new and refreshing.

Attraction marketing is not a magic bullet but it will put you in a position that you are talking to the right people instead of a bunch of tire kickers and time wasters. Attraction marketing is a smarter, more leveraged solution than making poor use of your time by calling a bunch of dead beat “why are you calling me?” leads or posting fliers on windshields.

So how does attraction marketing work? It’s the process of selling an inexpensive but useful information product on the front end to cover your ongoing advertising expenses. And then you “back-end” your prospect into your main product or opportunity. This is easy to do because you are the “expert” that they are looking for.

There are 3 BIG benefits that you will experience by implementing attraction marketing.

1) Create Momentum – Marketing a SOLUTION instead of your product or business opportunity is a process that in the beginning will get your new partners earning immediately, creating confidence as well as momentum in your team. The amazing thing is this system works with ANY MLM company. It doesn’t matter what network marketing company you are in, attraction marketing is phenomenal.

By using attraction marketing you and your downline will have all the free training that you need to be able to build your business both online as well as offline. Attraction marketing will enable a real tight bond to form within your group. And it will make sure that you are going after only your target market, which is other network marketers.

The money that you make in attraction marketing will help pay for your continued marketing. You have to look way beyond just your family and friends if you want to build a huge and sustainable business. There are 2 HUGE challenges that confront 95% of network marketers in the world today. The first challenge is not having enough money to advertise to stay in the game long enoug to make a profit. The second problem is you run out of people to talk to. Attraction marketing eliminates both of these problems.

2) Great Cash Flow – The second benefit of attraction marketing is having the cash flow necessary to continue marketing your solution. Your team will also have enough cash to continue their lead generation. And this is SO critical. Listen! You have only 63 days to get a new excited team member up to speed and making money. Attraction marketing will help to keep them “in the game.” Just think  what this will mean to your business!

3) Leads, Leads and More Leads – The third benefit is MLM lead generation.  Attraction marketing provides you with highly targeted people who are either already in a network marketing business, or are actively looking for one. You don’t have to bother with wasting all your time chasing after the 85% of people who have no desire at all to be an entrepreneur.

You can put a smile on your face knowing that you have found the “holy grail” of how to make money in network marketing. You have graduated from a peddler of products and biz ops, to a genuine marketer of a needed solution. It’s called attraction marketing.
