Back up a bit to the “The Disgruntled Employee”
You see, just a few years earlier, I was just like Jen. I was tired of working for someone else and being controlled by someone else. I was a Sales Manager and responsible for bringing in several millions in company revenue a year but was only making an embarrassing $55,000/year plus a few bonuses every now and then. I was worth more than that and I knew it!
I absolutely HATED working for somebody else! I was tired of working nights and weekends for a Company who didn’t appreciate me while the bosses where all home spending time with their families while I was missing out on all of the important events of my family’s lives.
Knowing that I wanted to work for myself where I could be in control of my income, the hours I worked and have the flexibility to be there for my family, I started spending every extra second I had learning about different businesses and which one would be the best fit for me. Eventually, I landed on a business I absolutely loved and was very successful getting it up and going. Since then, we’ve started several others, one of which is a Consulting and Training business for new entrepreneurs. And this is where Jen came in.
Wanting to help her, I started doing for her, what I do for many of my consulting clients and I started sending her daily business training. As I sent her more training over the coming weeks and months, we worked together to fine tune it and tweak it to the point it was very specific and customized to starting a Network Marketing business.
Jen took the daily training very seriously and completed the Training and something we call “Action Steps” as I gave them to her and within a couple of weeks, had added a couple of people to her Network Marketing team. Over the course of the next couple of months, still following my training lessons, Jen went on to build a very admirable team of over 30 new team members. As she added people to her team, she would call and ask if I would start sending her new team members the training I had given her, which I did.
The training was working, and we kept the training going for the rest of the year, though on a slightly less frequent basis to allow for the completion of certain Tasks. Throughout the remaining year, she went on to build a large, very successful and very profitable Network Marketing team of just over 400 team members and was making just over $125,000/year from her business.
SO WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE IN WHAT I HAD JEN DO AND WHAT JEN WAS TRYING ON HER OWN? WHY DID MY HELP WORK SO WELL FOR JEN?
Because I took a completely different approach than what Jen was taking. You see, Jen was trying to build her team by doing what she was told to do (the old-school way). She invited people to come to her house, sit through a long presentation full of hype, and then at the end, she told them that she wanted them to join her business. Let’s be honest, this approach has turned people off for years but it was all she knew to do.
Today’s a very different business environment than it was when the old presentation method was used. Now, we have new resources that have completely changed the way people receive information and get excited about opportunities.
Bottom line, I’m an Internet Marketer and I make my living attracting new customers by using the best resources that we have available today…the Internet. I simply showed Jen how to use those resources to attract people to her team who were already out there looking for an opportunity like she was offering. It worked and it worked very quickly. And guess what…the old timers’ method doesn’t stand a chance to what we can do today for you and your Network Marketing business!
