The Network Marketing profession has had a poor to terrible reputation over the last few years. It was never like this when I first started in the 70's.
But now, action must be taken to clear the air and take back our professionalism. For this, I offer two points;
1) Watch this Eric Worre hosted video, (ASAP as I do not know how long it will be available), of his interviews with;
Tony Robbins - International Coach and Motivational Speaker
Robert Kiyosaki - Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
Bob Proctor - "The Secret," Movie
Each will tell us their thoughts on Network Marketing. Their answers will surprise you. Not what you thought?
2) It is a popular belief that Network Marketing has no organization, code of ethics, decent training. My answer is, 1) Wrong, 2) Wrong.
When researching any Network marketing Company, the first thing to do is see if they are members of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). I have found that the companies that are in it for the long run are members. The new companies and the not so, shall we say, forthright, seem to avoid membership.
Why? The DSA has a Code of Ethics;
It consists of about 20 pages of reading but every member of the DSA is bound as a Corporation to this Code. We, as Independent Business Owners can lose the message. I must be honest.
But not me, not my Team.
We stand for the professionalism that the work deserves, serving the public, offering something other than the, "Get a job, keep a job," paradigm. Listen to what Robert Kiyosaki thinks of going to school then getting a job etc.
Training is essential. Our Company has a tome they enjoy. "We offer a personal improvement Program with a compensation package attached." But that is only where iot starts.
When I did my research on nearly 60 Network Marketing companies that took 2 years to complete, one thing I discovered was there is a huge lack of proper training. I discovered that many of our Company's Senior members were trained by Eric Worre over 20 years ago, I knew I found the right, "third party trainer." He can be found at;
Most of his training is free on his site. Talk to me if you care to learn more. But his single book, "7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professionsl," can be purchased in a Kindle version for less than $10, and it has everything you really need to know to build a Network Marketing Business.
But you know I will be around to help out.
The old saying goes, "Lead. follow or get out of the way."
I will lead.
