In network marketing, you hear many stories from distributors of how their up line sponsor got them into the business and a few months later, disappeared. This is perhaps one of the reasons why people discredit our profession and become skeptical about money making or online business opportunities. Personally speaking, I had a sponsor sign me up from a previous MLM company and he disappeared on me also so I can relate. People get into this business for different reasons. By the same token, people leave the business for different reasons.
I feel that your success in anything in life, is your responsibility not someone else. So for that reason, you have to become your own up line or your own leader. The home based business industry is a legitimate field of work. It works if you work. Perhaps that’s the problem. You won’t work because you don’t have the skill set. Furthermore, you will not commit to developing the skills that are necessary to pay the bills. In which case you can blame no one except yourself. How do you like that? When you refuse to develop the skills, you refuse to develop your paycheck. When you refuse to develop your paycheck, someone else like an employer will do that for you.
Here are some tips to becoming your own up line:
1. Read books on how network marketing is done. Go to www.amazon.com.
2. Join online business forums that focus on network marketing and ask questions.
3. Join networking groups that support the industry and network with others of the same mindset.
4. Watch you tube videos on prospecting and marketing.
5. Get rid of the lottery mentality. No one gets rich overnight. You have to pay your dues.
6. Go to http://www.risemovie.com and watch the free trailer on network marketing.
7. Last but not least, join me in business and I will assist you in getting the job done so long as you are willing to learn and take action.
In conclusion, network marketing is the greatest profession in the world. You have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. You get to use the power of leverage and create an income that is residual. So what if your up line leaves you. In every line of work, you will find irresponsible people. Your job is to not be one of the them. Will you continue to complain about the lack of up line support or will you become your own support? Seek out the help you desire. Just know that work is involved. Do not be discouraged and do not quit. If you quit, you will only be quitting on yourself.
