The other day I wrote a post called MLM Support The One True Way To Help Your Team. Well today is part of of this series focusing on the leadership aspect of what true MLM support really is.
Now my original though for starting that past was 2 simple words. But I never got to them.
That post took on a life of it’s own and ended up with the focus being on support from the company view point. So lets start off this post the right way.
MLM support – All In Financially
There are several ways and strategies to support a successful growing mlm team and you want to take every advantage in doing so. But the first item to cover and the most important question to ask yourself…
“Am I all in?”
What comes to mind when you think of these simple little words…all in? I’ll let you leave a comment below and let the community know but lets start with a little story…
A mentor of mine (let’s call him Dave) was sharing a struggle that he overcame a few years ago and it went something like this…
Dave was trying to sell a top package that his mlm company was selling. He was working all his leads like he was supposed to. He was doing all the follow up like he was taught. He was pushing it hard. He was a grinder, spend 10,12, 14 hours a day working his business. And as it happens when it came time to the close all his prospects would buy the lower level products.
Good question and I’m glad you asked…I asked as well. Dave went to his sponsor, like he’s supposed to, and sought guidance to this very issue. Her reply?
“Why would they? YOU don’t have it.” His reply…
“Well no…so what?” Here reply…
“If you don’t have it then you don’t know what’s in it or what it does for people. You are not ALL IN. and until you get all in don’t call me back asking for help.”
You might be saying “Ouch!” right about now right? This a little harsh or is it? But here’s what happened next. Dave gathered the money, bought the higher package, got all in, and made $22,000 the following month after only making a grand or so the previous month.
If you didn’t see a light bulb pop in your heard right about now read that last paragraph again.
What changed? Dave changed. His mindset changed. It wasn’t the product. It wasn’t the cost, the money he didn’t have to get the higher product. It was his mindset. It was his commitment to his business. He was all in financially. Some people will say I don’t have the money.
They will give you every excuse there is…if you let them…on why or how they can’t get all in. And that’s ok. Love them and let them go. Because at the end of the day if they really want to know HOW to make money and HOW to get the best mlm support from you they need to be all in. But even before that YOU need to be all in.
MLM Support – All In Mentally and Physically
If you can prove this point for me then leave a comment below and give me an example. Here’s a few of mine.
I once woke up at 3:00 AM Saturday morning and drove 400 miles south for an all day event with my mlm business in Los Angeles. It was one of the first events on the west coast where there was going to be a bunch of top leaders and the company president. I was jacked and could not get to sleep the night before until about midnight.
So on less than 3 hours of sleep I started my drive. I stopped briefly to grab a couple of power drinks and just cranked the music the entire way down. I remember driving about 80 or so down I5 and watching the sun rise while I was cruising along. I arrived about 30 minuets before the event and was ready to rock!
I was given the opportunity to share my testimonial and met the founder of the company. A good day to say the least.
Fortunately this was a one day event as I also had planned to see my grandparents the following day…150 miles North of where I live. So needs less to say I had to drive even further that night and the next day. So what did I do?
I stayed for the THE MEETING AFTER THE MEETING. There is nothing better than to hang out the cream of the crop after a presentation. We sat around the bar in the hotel and downed a couple and was able to really connect. So much so that I even went out to dinner with some of them.
A core group of about 10 people, most of which are low to mid 6 figure earners. So you bet I took them up on it. What would you do in this situation?
Needless to say I didn’t start driving my next leg of the journey till 11:00 PM Saturday night. Grabbed a couple more energy drinks. Made about 200 miles until I had to crash at a cheep hotel for all of 5 hours and got to my grandparents at around noon on Sunday. Stayed for a couple hours and then headed home with 2 hours of driving ahead of me. All that and I still made it to work on Monday, albeit a little tired.
I have another dozen or so extreme, went out of my way to attend an event, kind of stories. Do you?
So what’s the wrap up here?
The main thing to really drive home your mlm support for your team is to be ALL IN flat out period!
Be ALL IN with all the products.
Master the information process and system.
Be a product of the product.
Attend all events.
Be a leader your team needs.
