When We Stopped Following Our Upline's Advice, Our Business Took Off!
I am walking on eggshells here!
But I have no doubt that if your biz is not taking off...chances are you have fallen into one of the lies taught to you by your upline.
We followed these lies...we worked hard at the numbers game...and we often got frustrated at each other because neither one of us could make it work. It was time for a change, or we would need to let go of our side hustle. So, with that said...
I mean no harm or disrespect to anyone when I share Ferny Ceballos' five myths that led us to put our business online, automate most of the work, and stop the frustration between us.
Let me know in the comments if any of these Myths sound familiar.
Big Myth Number 1:
This Is A Numbers Game
“Don’t worry about rejection. The more people you talk to, the more people you’re going to recruit. This is a number game.”
Ever heard this one before?
I bet you have, and it probably kept you from losing your mind when most, if not ALL your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers said NO to your business.
Because after all, it’s a “Numbers Game”, right?
Well, even though this is partially true, business is a game of numbers, there is a way to build yours without facing ANY rejection whatsoever, and skip the embarrassment that comes with it.
You’ll discover how further on this page.
Big Myth Number 2:
You Are Just One Recruit Away From An Explosion
I think some Network Marketing Leaders say that just to give you a false sense of hope that your winning lottery ticket is just one rep away. Theoretically it’s true. However I’ve met people who personally sponsored HUNDREDS into their company and never got their business off the ground.
I’ll tell the real reason why in a moment. And more importantly, how you can FIX this massive leaky hole in your business
Big Myth Number 3:
Most Of Your Time Should Be Spent Prospecting
This one might surprise you. Prospecting by making cold calls, going to the mall, talking to strangers, passing out flyers or business cards… all this is a BIG HONKING WASTE OF TIME, compared to the leverage you have available to you with social media and the internet.
Seriously, think about it… if you spend all of your time and energy out in public and burning gas driving around town trying to get in front of people, you’ll have no time left to actually run your business.
I think Michael Gerber in his classic book “The E-Myth” summed it up best…
“Work ON your business not IN it.”
I, like many Network Marketers was not only working IN my business, but I wasn’t even making any money for it.
I’m going to show you how to shift your focus to much more profitable activities, that will explode your Network Marketing business without doing any traditional or in-person prospecting at all.
Big Myth Number 4:
Recruiting Is The Key To Your Success In Network Marketing
Now before you grab the torch and the pitchfork, hear me out. Recruiting is an essential part of your success in Network Marketing, but it is NOT the key.
Thinking that it is, would be the same as saying the key to McDonald’s success is selling franchises. It’s not.
Hold that thought for a moment, because this might be one of the most IMPORTANT things I’m going to reveal to you.
Big Myth Number 5:
Don’t Reinvent The Wheel
Do what other successful people have done, and you too will be successful.
Here’s the problem with this thinking. Most of the advice given today in Network Marketing, comes from the “old school” methods that might have worked well in the 80’s and the early part of the 90’s.
Seriously. We are over a DECADE into the 21st century, and the old “tried and true” methods will soon become as outdated as the Pony Express.
Last time I checked, my mail man pulled up in a car. And I’m gonna go out on a limb here and assume yours did too.
With what we have at our disposal today, it’s INSANE to continue and rely on these dying and quite frankly, painful tactics, and not leverage the technology you have at your fingertips.
I think we can safely say…
Old School MLM Is DONE…
And The Internet is Now KING!
This is a BIG shift in traditional thinking! But a BIG shift can create the change necessary to propel your business from stagnant to thriving.
A system that will AUTOMATICALLY…
- Get leads & prospect for you without having to pick up the phone to cold call or deal with rejection from tire kickers ever again.
- Get highly motivated prospects with a few keystrokes, real people who actually WANT to see what you’ve got!
- Recruit people and make sales without even talking to them, until they sign up or submit an application first!
We look forward to sharing this journey with you,
Greg and Amy Myers
