Many of those on my network marketing team failed in another network marketing company prior to giving my opportunity a try. I’ve heard all the excuses about why it wouldn’t work for them. Most of them quit their other company within their first year and when I approached them about exploring my opportunity said, “It just won’t work for me. I tried it and never made any money.”
I totally get that. It would be hard to believe any other opportunity would work for you especially when you gave it a good effort and it just didn’t work out.
The reality is that most people fail in network marketing in their first year. Why is that?
Consider my Ironman story. I’ve been doing Ironman triathlon for 7 years now and I have finished 10. I’m now just understanding the sport. That is just like my experience in network marketing. It has taken me almost 4 years to really understand how it all works.
According to Eric Worre in his book GoPro; 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional, says, “As a general rule, it will take you about one year to become competent and profitable in Network Marketing. You’ll know the basics, you’ll cover expenses, and you’ll be learning. It will take about three years of consistent part-time effort in order to go full-time. It will take about five years of consistent effort to become a six-figure earner or above. And it will take about seven years of consistent effort to become an expert.”
I’ve been building a team for four years now and I’m progressing just like The 1/3/5/7 Formula.
You may have entered another company with a false expectation. Perhaps your sponsor promised you the moon with very little work on your part. Sponsors who promise that will not succeed either.
Please note that Eric Worre used the word “consistent effort” twice in describing the pace you’ll have to sustain to become a professional. It took me 27 months of consistent 7-12 hours a week effort to be able to go full time. I’m currently earning a six figure residual income and that took four years to achieve. This last year I learned a tremendous amount and now members of my team and new distributors are benefiting from my learning curve and have the proper expectation.
I believe everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and capture their dreams. It takes consistent effort in network marketing to achieve that.
Ask yourself these questions:
If you stay in your current job where will you be in 5 years?
Are you okay with that?
The five years will still come whether you choose to do something different or not. The only difference will be what you’ve been able to achieve. The only way to do better than your current situation is to make a choice to change.
If your open to change, would you be open to learning more about my opportunity?
