Note: Some members of the WWN community who are currently working from home as professionals, starting their own business and/or are involved in a Network Marketing opportunity requested that we share some tips for success with the larger group. So here are some thoughts:
The success of any business venture: Brick and Mortar, Internet-based Sales & Marketing, Network marketing, Professional Services etc is all dependent on what YOU DO! It has nothing to do with the 1000’s of franchises, ideas, programs, opportunities and hypes out there.
Your success is dependent not just on your ‘talk’ and ‘plans’ but more importantly on your ‘actions’. You lead yourself and your dreams with your sense of focus and keep it alive with the steps you take. Remember, YOU set the tone and direction for the dynamics within your team(s). So while you are at the TOP of your network, your success also depends on whats going on at the bottom.
There will always be new businesses coming up, as well as those folding up. That is a fact of life. We all evolve, ideas, technology, needs and wants all change. Business opportunities exist on this simple premise. For instance, in network marketing, all you are doing is building a personal network and marketing different ideas, products, services and opportunities to them. So you should not be too concerned with the opportunity. What should be of more interest to is building a PERSONAL BRAND. Business success will flow naturally from that!
So the question you should be asking is not just: Is this a great opportunity? Rather it should also be: How big is my network? How consistently and persistently will I continue to build upon it until it is on auto-pilot? Focus on reaching and connecting with people in your network and building value-based relationships. If people are satisfied and ‘wowed’ with your brand and service/product offering, they will become excellent referral sources and send others to you! (This is particularly true for women clients).
