“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.
