Find something you love to do, and you’ll never work a day in your life” – Harvey MacKay

In the first network marketing company I was involved with, I did everything they recommended for building my business. I made my list of 100 friends, family and acquaintances. I did cold calling, 3 way calls, stalking people in the mall, set up both at trade shows and fairs, I even did hotel meetings.

I really failed in that company. I did sponsor people but it was a stairstep breakaway compensation plan and when my people broke away, it became really difficult for me to continue.

The reason it was difficult to continue is because I absolutely HATED what I was doing. I was really depressed and I just couldn’t bring myself to do any more cold calls, 3 way calls or anything else associated with network marketing.

I had just given up. Forget this! If I don’t at least like what I am doing a little bit, no way I will be able to be successful.

That was long before I learned about the Law Of Attraction and how the way you feel affects your success.

Anyway, I was really depressed because we were in financial dire straits. We had nearly lost our house to foreclosure that year a couple times. I had thought that network marketing could be a solution to our financial problems but that failure was devastating. At the time I had no hope and I was seriously wishing I could commit suicide but would never hurt my family that way so I was just a non functioning pile of bones.

It was about that time my mom, Bonnie Muhn, came over with a product from a company she had just started with. The products were very anti-depressant and I felt the effects within minutes.

If it weren’t for that experience, I would NOT have returned to network marketing. I liked that product so much I decided to give network marketing another try.

That was 14 years ago. I had spent 2 years learning how NOT to promote my business. This time I would do it differently. I kept thinking about how conventional businesses promote their business. They don’t make a list of 100 people, they don’t do 3 way calls, they don’t run around the mall asking people if they are happy with the amount of income they are making, most don’t do cold calling.

I started studying conventional businesses. I looked at the Yellow Pages, newspapers, magazines. I started with direct mail, leave behinds and placing small ads in penny saver type newspapers and anything else I could find to do.

Not long after that I discovered the internet. I got a web site and started my first newsletter. That was 12 years ago.

I studied online marketers who were successful I learned and applied marketing techniques that would cause people to COME TO ME and get on my list. As I learned these techniques, I shared them with my growing downline. I called it Remote Marketing. Little did I know, I was using and teaching Attraction Marketing all that time. 😉

So you may be asking, “What does that have to do with loving what you do?”

Well let me tell you about that. Previously I was using network marketing techniques that made me feel crappy and unmotivated. When I started using marketing techniques that get people to come to me, I actually started to LOVE what I was doing. In fact, I love it so much that I find myself having trouble quitting for the day.

I know my success in the network marketing industry is entirely because I love what I do. There is no way I would have made it to full time, fully supported by my network marketing business using the old techniques. No Way, No How!

So what do you choose . . .

I hope you choose to learn Attraction Marketing so you can Love What You Do.

These days, with the economy the way it is, there are more and more people in scarcity mode. Take a moment to listen when you are among groups of people. You will hear people talking about gas prices, inflation, job security, and the list goes on.

One thing that disturbs me is that I am hearing some network marketers talk from scarcity thinking. This is detrimental to your business. I have heard some say people are broke and can’t afford products.

This is NOT the time to be caught up in scarcity mindset. Don’t you realize people need what we have with network marketing? People are looking for answers. Many are looking to supplement their income. Thinking that people can’t afford to buy is pretty much insuring that you will never have any success in your business.

The network marketing industry thrives in economic down times. Smart network marketers will position themselves in front of those who are online searching for ways to supplement their income. Those who are applying Attraction Marketing will be ahead of the game.

Attraction Marketing is something I have been applying in my business and teaching my downline since I started with my primary company 14 years ago. I called it Remote Marketing. Nowadays we call it Attraction Marketing. 😉

I had used conventional network marketing in a prior company and hated it. I knew there had to be a better way. I started thinking about how conventional businesses operate. They don’t do 3 way calls on their list of 100 friends and family. They don’t stalk people in the mall. They DO promote their business with lots of free and paid advertising.

I have found that the only leads that are any good are the ones I generate through Attraction Marketing – using marketing techniques to get people to come to me.

Anyway, Now is the time to GET SERIOUS! You can’t afford the luxury of playing around at being in business. I love how Eric Worre ends his videos: Become a Network Marketing Professional and go out and tell the world because it is a stone cold fact that we have a better way!
