So, you’ve found a MLM business opportunity that you are expecting to be your backup plan in the event you lose your job, need extra income, or simply for money to save.
What are your plans to make that happen?
Yes, that’s right, you really have to plan for success in your MLM business or by default you are planning to fail. Success does not happen by accident and in fact takes a lot of work, planning and persistence.
Most people start their MLM business with a lot of excitement and plans to work their business during the evening hours after work, on the weekends and maybe even during their lunch break. However, that is where the planning ends. Unfortunately, that is where the planning should be just getting started.
If you truly want to build a six figure residual income that can lead to financial independence you must take the road less traveled. The good news is that the road less traveled is actually easier than you might think. At the top of the list you must know that regardless of the amount of time that you can commit on a weekly basis the key to success is “Consistency”.
Easy enough, but how do I ensure that consistency is a part of building my business?
*Setting Goals as a means to measure your progress
*Find a mentor to old you accountable
Before getting worried about these concepts think about the following scenario. Let’s say that you work a full-time job and only have 5 or 6 hours per week to work your business. In looking at your schedule you realize that you can use your lunch hour each day and maybe another hour or so on Saturday’s. That’s consistency.
Maybe your are in a better position and you are able to devote 15 hours each week by spending 3 hours nightly to build your business. Again, while this situation clearly gives you the ability to devote considerably more time to your business we are still focusing on the CONSISTENTCY.
Regardless of the amount of time you have available for building your business layout a plan for working on your business at the start of each week. If you are like most people that weekly plan may look different from week to week, but the key is to plan the time that you do have available.
Closely related to the planning process will be your goals. Goals are a very applicable part of your personal life as well. Think about goals as a target. If you have not defined your target how do you ever expect to hit the target. Goals are the ultimate form of planning and as you will see in multiple places: If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Beyond this make sure that your goals are WRITTEN down and REVIEWED on a regular basis. You can have the best Network Marketing Opportunity in the world, but if you want to maximize your success you will want to get started on your goals today. More importantly once you have written you goals down with the associated actions steps required to attain those goals, you will want to periodically review them to ensure that you are on track toward success.
While planning is an very important step it will do very little to help your grow your business if you don’t follow through with the plans that you have put in place. This is where a mentor can be a major help when trying to build a successful business.
In short mentoring is about a more experienced person helping another to achieve a goal. The overall mentoring process is about having an accountability partner, giving help in a non-threatening way and a manner that will empower the recipient to move forward with confidence towards their goals.
In case you have never taken the time to look into the history of the most successful people that you know, I would highly recommend doing so. Chances are anyone achieving great levels of success at some point in their journey has benefited from the council of a mentor who had attained great success. For all of you Star Wars fans, think about the relationship between Obi-wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.
With a few key concepts of consistency, planning, goal setting and equally as important finding yourself a mentor, your MLM business will soar to levels you never thought possible. Speaking from experience ignoring these concepts will be at the determent of your business.
