"Leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals."

I'm not sure where I heard this quote, but it applies beautifully to the ultimate, long-term success of our Voyager business. What every Network Marketing company needs to succeed are excellent leaders in the field. Leaders are often born with leadership instinct, however, leaders can also be developed within the team.

"Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing."
~Albert Schweitzer

Leaders need to set the "pace for the pack." Leaders need to set the example for their team with consistent personal sponsoring. Leaders need to rank advance quickly, again setting the pace. Leaders need to gather their people weekly and hold in-home meetings. Leaders need to do 3-way calls to validate the opportunity. Leaders need to follow and teach the 4-step system. Leaders need to recognize the efforts of their team, whether large or small. Leaders need to be positive. Leaders must be focused and working towards their goals. Leaders edify the upline and empower the downline. 

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."  - John Quincy Adams 

My CRAZY ATE'S ... Motivate, Update, Communicate, Congratulate, Rejuvenate, Evaluate, Anticipate and Initiate. Leaders embrace the Crazy Ate's, and make things happen. They stay on target for themselves and the team. They keep their team in the loop. They ride one horse over the finish line, and don't diffuse or discount the efforts of the team. They set their goals and work daily to achieve those goals. They help their team see the big picture by first painting that picture of hope and possibility.

"A leader’s role is to raise people’s aspirations for what they can become and to release their energies so they will try to get there."  ~ David R. Gergen

I met some incredible leaders on this week long trip. From Valdosta, GA, Grand Blanc, MI, West Bloomfield, MI and West Virginia, leaders were seen leading the way with enthusiasm, focus, determination, hard work, love and commitment. I was honored to work along side them. I feel very blessed. You leaders are the CORE of what is going to be explosive over the next 3-5 years. Know who you are. Work hard. Love what you do. And know you are loved and appreciated for the people you are and will be. Thank you.
