Back to Basics

‎"Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals."   - Jim Rohn

This has got to be one of the best quotes for understanding success. I was fortunate, as were many of you reading these posts, to have heard Jim Rohn speak in person many times. Network Marketing companies have utilized Mr. Rohn's motivational skills for years. It was a great loss to the networking world when he died a few years ago, but the lessons he taught remain with us. As he states, "success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals." Let's chat about getting back to the basics.

So many people who jump into Network Marketing as "newbies" always seem to try to find a new way to do MLM. They all want to re-invent the wheel, and they are determined that there is a better way - a short cut to success. However, there is a proven way to do this business. This proven way is the basics - the backbone of business building. And, yes there is the internet, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, conference calling, recorded hotlines, and everything else that falls under the category of "modern technology", but the basics of business building will remain the same. Even with running ads, doing Plaster Plan and Guerrilla Marketing fun techniques, you have to "warm up" that cold market that you are generating an interest with, and do the basics. Network Marketing is a people talking to people, face-to-face, sharing from their heart why they are doing this business, and sharing their story of success with the product and opportunity, handing out a sample and following up - business. (That's a mouthful.)

I put together our team support site to help move the business building basics along. is there to assist you with the basics. Start by going to the site and clicking on the GETTING STARTED tab. From there, listen to the four training's under BASIC TRAINING tab. Use the tools I've developed for you. Use your sponsor, and stay plugged in. Don't stray to much from the basics. Meet with your sponsor and go over the 48-Hour Checklist with them in person. Your sponsor will help you with writing your Prospect 200 list, 3-way calling your Prospects, meeting 2-on-1 with them, holding your first few home meetings, and get you plugged in. Sample two a day, everyday and use your Biz Binder to follow up efficiently. Listen to the Saturday Success Strategies call at 7am pacific. These calls gives more specific training, chunking down techniques that will fine tune your presentations, invites, and money making skills. Your job is to stay excited and constantly sponsor new people into the business. The only way you can stay excited is by staying plugged in with the calls and trainings, plugging your people in, and sponsoring new people every single month. A new person sponsored keeps you pumped!

You have a golden opportunity here. Once you start understanding what you've got your hands on, you'll run fast and focused. You won't let anything deter you from achieving your goals. You will meet with people, sponsor them and plug them into the system we've developed. If you do that consistently for the next 3-5 years, every dream you have ever had will be realized. So, get back to basics and make money while making a difference with this amazing Voyager opportunity and V3 product!
