Your business starts with you:
Once you join a business opportunity, you run a business: YOUR business.
It would be the perfect scenario if you’d have a sponsor who would start working
with you within 24 hours after enrolling.
In my opinion and my method of operations, that is what will happen.
In reality though, many people are left on their own. They will, if they
are lucky, only get a message or a call from their sponsor when no sign ups are made.
Many people drop out for the simple reason they have met rejections from
their friends and family and feel they are not supported by the team and
particularly their sponsor.
However, there also are people who simply start moving, start learning.
Absorbing all information available by clicking on each and every link on
a website, reading through FAQs, attending webinars and Q&A calls.
They ignore their own sponsor for the simple reason they realize that
everything starts with themselves.
It all starts with you
Your business starts with you. Not with your sponsor. If your sponsor
doesn’t contact you, reach out to their sponsor and upwards until you
find someone who is willing to mentor you. Or find yourself a mentor
in another industry.
Let’s assume you’ve joined a legit company. Good real product (can be digital too),
integrity in place, it’s all there. Then YOU have the obligation to put in
the time to improve your skills. And how do you improve? By simply doing
and then evaluate your actions afterwards. What went wrong, what could
you’ve done differently with perhaps a better result? Then the next time
you’ll do it again, do it differently. Until you realize what you are
doing is working. Keep doing it then.
If you are not getting results, don’t blame the company, don’t blame
your sponsor but take full responsibility for it yourself.
Communication goes two ways
Very often I hear ‘But I wasn’t told that’.
Hey, you run your own business and you shouldn’t assume information
always comes top down. Many people don’t read emails that are sent
from the company, many don’t read along in Facebook groups where
your leadership is communicating with everyone to inform, help and
If you have a question and can’t find the answer – I mean you first
go research all available resources – then ask your question in a
Facebook group, your sponsor, their sponsor…always move up the line.
Make them work for the money you will be making them. If communication
doesn’t come your way, go out to get the answers. That is what leaders do.
Once you realize that your business starts with you, you will understand
that it is about you making sure you are the authority, you having the
answers, you having faith in what you are doing, you accepting no other
outcome than success in your business, you picking up the phone to talk
with people. You OWNING your business and give it all you’ve got.
Never allow anyone but yourself to determine the
growth of YOUR business!
