Don’t Fail In Network Marketing! Get Real!

While visiting my friend Richard Petrillo’s Blog the other day and came across a refreshingly honest and I believe on point article on the top ten reasons why you will fail in Network Marketing. 

Richard and I had just recently discussed the reasons why so many Network Marketers get off track and eventually succumb to their original life path; working for the MAN and the 9-5 hamster wheel.

I have been visiting Richard’s blog for almost a full year now because he is an expert at laying things out in a very easy to follow manner and providing leading edge content that always keeps me in the forefront of what’s going on with regard to all things “Internet Marketing”.

Richard Petrillo

I am very thankful to Richard for countless articles with absolutely crucial information that have made my Internet and Network Marketing life so much simpler.

So, after we spoke I decided once again to scroll through his posts, searching for a nugget that I may have missed and found an Article that was absolutely on point, real and so very truthful to it’s core that I had to share it with you here . . .  with his permission of course!

Let’s Get REAL!!!!

I read endless articles, posts and tweet related to and linking to information on how to succeed in your Network Marketing Business, but isn’t the best strategy to work backwards in this industry!  What I mean is, when you are setting goals isn’t the best thing to do envision where you want to end up and then set about a plan to get there?

I think the same is true with regard to Daily Rituals, Strategies and following a simple plan to get results and being very postive, focused, motivated and committed are crucial characteristics of a success Netwrk Marketer and business person.

But . . . wouldn’t it also be nice to know the REAL reasons that we as Entrpreneurs fail in Network Marketing, so that when we begin to slide down that slippery slope we will recognize the signs and take no time to grab our own boot strapts and pull ourselves out! 

I truly recognised bits of myself in each and every one of these Reasons!  So even when you might think you got this Network Marketing thang totally figured out, just becareful that it doesn’t come back out of the blue to bite you in the you know what!!

These Ten REAL Reasons that you will fail in Network Marketing are true of all of us at some point in our careers and I believe  that if we become awareof these reasons and our own personal issues before it goes that far, we can jump in to save ourselves before it’s too late and alas we are back on that wheel.

So, here they are the Ten Real Reasons You Will Fail in Network Marketing!  I’m not going to share them all or expand on them in too much detail because I want you to visit Richard’s Site to Get The FULL DETAILS!

#10  Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You Don’t Have The Right Attitude For The Business!

Most people don’t have the positive long term attitude it takes to succeed in this business, they don’t take it seriously enough because in most cases their financial investment has been fairly low!

#9. Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You Will Pre-Judge Everyone!

The first lesson to learn in Network Marketing is… It’s not up to you to decide if your business opportunity is right for someone else. Do not decide for someone whether they will be interested or not; you could be throwing away the chances of signing up your next Top Performer. CALL EVERYONE!! They can decide for themselves if they are interested or not.

#8 Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You Believe You Already Know How To Do The Business – Just because you have had success in something else.

I was a successful Realtor for over 16 years, that doesn’t mean I am a natural and resistant to Fail in Network Marketing.  Business People need to retrained because “Sales” &  Network Marketing couldn’t be more opposite. (although they don’t think so)

#7 Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You Won’t Adjust Your Mindset and Make it A Priority!

Adjusting your mindset from the corporate world of 9 to 5, never having to take home your work, having the weekends off is completely different than owning your own business  a priority!

#6 Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You Won’t Stay Consistent – You’ll Treat This Business Like A Hobby!

Do a Little, Earn a Little – Do a Lot, Earn a Lot! You cannot treat Network Marketing like a hobby.

You can do it Slow and Hard or Fast and Much Easier! But … you must work at it.  Ask yourself at the end of each day, “Would I hire ME?”

Which leads us straight into the #5 reason you will fail in Network Marketing!

#5 You Let the Emotional Roller-Coaster Take Over and Abandon Ship Too Easily!

Ah the Emotional Roller-Coaster! One day you’re flying high because you just brought in a new Rep or landed a new customer, and the next day it seems like you can’t give your product away.  People look at you like you’re from Mars because you are doing a Network Marketing business. Oh you mean a “Pyramid Scheme”, you hear again for the umpteenth time.

#4 Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

You DO NOT and CANNOT Accept Rejection!

If you have a hard time with the word N.O. this may not be the business for you! Some people won’t even pick up the phone to share their business for the “FEAR OF REJECTION”  This is a numbers game, plain and simple. You will have to go through 20 or 30 NO’s to get a YES!

#3 Reason You Will Fail In Network Marketing!

About pennyturko
Who Am I? Do I have to tell the truth? Well, yes, I guess that's the whole point here isn't it. To some it may not really be all that exciting to have been born and raised in a remote Northern British Columbia community; the daughter of a trapper, hunter, gas line pigger and stay at home mom. As it turned out, it was the most perfectly cherished, character buiding raising I could have imagined. My folks were young parents and were the best possible examples of overcoming difficult life circumstances and personal tragedy and using these experiences to grow, change and thrive. I learned at a young age that family was the most important thing in life (as well as being able to skin a lynx! Ha! Ha!) I have 3 siblings, my oldest brother was injured in a motor-vehicle accident 30 years ago. He is a quadraplegic and has been in a wheel chair ever since. We feel he is our Angel. He never complains about his situation. It amazes me that I still continue to complain about menial things in my life that I shouldn't - and then I think of him. He is an awesome man, loving brother, son and Uncle! He's eager to meet each day with a smile, even with the obstacles and challenges he faces. We each have our own personal demons that hold us back, but when I think of how brave he is to live his life with truth and integrity . . . I feel like I can do anything! If we really think about it, we control our own happiness, our own destiny! He chooses to be happy to be alive each day . . . so HE IS!! I am married to my wonderful soul mate of 23 years and we have two gorgeous kids (I'm probably biased) and they are the most important thing to us! So, how did I end up here on this Blog? After almost 20 years as a Real Estate Agent, making an awesome living, but never having time to enjoy my life, my husband and my family . . . I decided to create my own destiny! I made the decision to choose a different way! I made the commitment to myself that I would make a life, rather than make a living! My life is what I make it; my mindset is what I make it; my relationships are what I make them. We, as humans are completely in control of everything in our own lives; the only thing that can hold us back is our own minds! Some Personal Stuff! My Family and my God are the most important things to me. I know without a doubt that laughter is the best medicine and sometimes I feel like the DR. I always cry in sad movies, even in movies that aren't VERY sad. Witnessing selfless acts of kindness, brings me to tears of happiness. I cherish my relationships and work at practicing true forgiveness of myself and others. My passion is to help others discover their passion and create the life they want to live. True Wealth is different to all people, I strive to motivate others to realize what Wealth is to them and how to attain it. So, now you know me! If you like, you can contact me and we can talk about how we can work together to create the future you deserve!
