What is the number 1 thing that will contribute to your success in Network Marketing?

I was thinking to myself, what is the most valuable thing I have done to create success in my home business? I think some people come into this business with the right mindset and the right skill set, but that was not me. Yes I had a background in Marketing, I had experience in Event Management, but I came into Network Marketing to build a global empire online, and I had work to do. The strategies that your company and leaders teach, they do work, and that is how I got started, but then I got stuck. I didn't have the time it took to go out and pound the pavement while my 2 babies were home. We didn't have family members around who could come and take over for me. I was often away, spending hours traveling for events, and I just kept thinking to myself, there has to be a better way that I can make this work for me. I wanted to not just find success, but enjoy the process. So I started researching and I started learning the ins and outs of social media & internet marketing for network marketers. I started to teach it to my team, and even the people who had quit came back, curious to learn how I was building my business and keen to get started again. If you don't teach your teams how to build an online business, they will quit and find someone who will, or they will have to take the time required to seek out and learn the right skill set. 

Invest in Your Home Business

If you don't invest in your business, how can you expect anyone else to? You have to become a product of your product, create stories and testimonials that will grow your reputation and create a strong referral system. Investing in your product line shows people you are committed to your business. I would never whip out a lipstick from another company when my company has the best products on the market, because it doesn't reflect my belief in what I put my name on. You have to be at your annual meetings, and you have to make trainings within your business a priority. Even though I don't believe in posting your companies brand on your social media, you still have to know the ins and outs of what makes your company so competative in the market place. Why should people join your company vs any other company? And you need to be arround success and hear the stories of those who have gone before you. Don't have 1 foot out the door, because you will never find success unless you are in it to win it.

Invest in Your Education

Books: Not a day goes by where I'm not reading a book to help me grow as a leader and as the best version of myself. Im not big on skillset books, and I prefer to read books that are about mindset and how to implement positive thought patterns and habits. A few of my favourite books are The 7 Decisions, Think and Grow Rich for Women (or The orginal by Napolean Hill), and The Compound Affect. I would say these 3 are an amazing starting point and have had a huge influence on my life and how I do business. 

Workshops, Conferences, and Networking Events: These are an incredible way to connect and learn from others, come away inspired with new strategies and tools to grow your business, new referral partners and often new clients. The memories you create and the practice of growing with others is beyond valuable and every time you attend you think nothing will top it, and then the next one goes and blows your mind! 

​Courses: There are many lives courses you can attend, but it can also be beneficial to invest in online courses that you can learn on your own time and it can often be more cost affective then a life event. If you're in a home business, or any business really, I recommend attending courses for Social Media, Marketing, Sales, Email Marketing, and Blogging. These skills are so valuable and can transfer into any business venture you pursue. You can find links to some of my favourite courses in the resource section below. 

Time: Now there are 2 ways to look at time. For one, time is precious and time is money. If you can pay someone to help you move along further and quicker in your business, your money becomes an investment. For instance, you work full time, you're a parent, and you're building a home business in the nooks and crannies of your life. Hire a professional cleaner, put money in someone elses pocket, and use that time to invest in your business. It will pay off. Or you can spend countless hours trying to figure out how to do it yourself, or you can just fork over the money to have a professional teach you or do it for you, and in the process you can focus on making money in your business. 

But there are other ways you need to also invest your time, and in the start of your business, you have to realize this is not the trading time for money type of transaction as it is in a job. You invest time upfront to build relationships, create value, share your products and services, learn, implement, and market your business.​ And if you're consistent and affective, willing to learn and willing to fail, you're home business will pay off much greater then any job can give you. When you invest in yourself, Brand YOU, you are creating a life of unlimited possibility, freedom and financial security. And with the resources we have today, there is NO reason why not anyone can do this.
