I can’t express how important it is to get into a business mindset. I have seen it far too often. Network marketers often get started with their business because they see it as a quick and easy solution to their financial problems. Many even see the possibilities of financial freedom that building a business in network marketing can bring.
Financial freedom is possible but it is not as easy as setting up a web site and expecting prospects and money to automatically start rolling in. It takes consistent, persistent, DAILY work. The business mindset is at the core of everything you do in your business. If you don’t have a business mindset, you won’t have any success in network marketing.
While you are in the business mindset, you also need to think about treating your business like a JOB.
Ask yourself this question: Would your boss keep you around if you worked your job the way you work your Network Marketing business?
The problem with a home based business is that, since you are your own boss, you can do or not do the daily tasks that are required for business success. On a JOB, you have a daily method of operation. If you want to keep your job and thus, earn a living, you must show up for work. Not only that, you must arrive on time.
Even if you don’t feel great, you show up and put in a day’s work.
Even if you aren’t paid very well, you show up and put in a day’s work.
Even if people around you are negative, you show up and put in a day’s work.
Even if you HATE your job, you show up and put in a day’s work.
While you are on the job, you must be efficiently working and producing according to the requirements set out by your employer. If you don’t do that, you get FIRED!
Now, think about how you are functioning in your network marketing business. Would you, as the CEO of your business, hire someone who functions like you or would you fire them?
If people were to put the same type of energy and discipline in their Network Marketing business as they do in their jobs, they would be rich.
It’s very important to have a serious business mindset while also, Daily operations LIKE A JOB.
