- Are you a home based business owner who – just happened to sign up with a network marketing company to sell their products online?
- Are you stuck in a rut trying to figure out how to generate leads online?
- Do you sit at your computer, late at night (or whenever) and ask the screen, “NOW WHAT?”
I understand and have done all three. Its frustrating, isn’t it?
To close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be with your business requires focus, on self development that you might not have had in the past. Understanding your strengths and challenges, and recognizing how to have balance between the two is a developed skill that comes with time, focus, being honest with yourself, and more. For those who figure this out – awesome! But for those who don’t, well, let’s just say that it takes a bit more time to get where/what you want.
For home based business owners in the network marketing and direct sales industry, the question – NOW WHAT? – is a common one. But is the answer common? The product and/or service being offered is great. The compensation plan is set and incredible. The company has a steady track record. The process for finding and following up with leads is in place. The marketing tools are already designed and provided. So what is left? Two words – personal development.
The internal dialog of the home based business owner can make or break their success. What you say to yourself – about you – becomes paramount. The level of confidence, being self-empowered, understanding internal strengths and weaknesses, and being laser focused on a goal or dream – are often part of the missing links in growing any business. 90% of the challenges for home based business owners are in the lack of personal development. What creates this lack or the need to ask, NOW WHAT? It is one thing – STUFF.
Have an AWESOME day!!!
Until the next post… take care.
So much truth Darren! I recently learned of a study that showed the two distinguishing factors between sales people who make $50K and those who make $500K plus. It’s confidence and personal development!
Hi Nancy. Thanks so much for your sharing.
Awesome that you found that study. Good stuff!
If you have the link to that particular study, please share it in your reply.
It would be helpful for some – I am sure; including myself.
Always good to hear from you…hope all is well. I was wondering about your experience with Chris and his internet program. It sounds good would like to know if you are participating and how it is going.
Hi Beverly. Thanks for your response. YES. I have had a chance to spend time with Chris and like his work. I recommend that , if nothing else, sign up on the link I sent you and get on his email list. But the small investment for his program will pay off big time, if you can do it. Sounds like you are already familiar with his work. If so, then you know that it would be well worth the small investment to get that program. Plus, it may be tax deductible as a business expense (smile).
I love your tag line – Getting Rid of Stuff! Beautiful!
Personal development is huge – I love the way one of my mentors put it, network marketing is a personal development program with a compensation plan attached.
All the best,
Thanks for your comment Alan. Be sure and share this post with your team members – up and down lines. I think great discusions in which people can learn will take place on this blog over this topic of NOW WHAT.
@Alan. Touching base with you Alan to see how your blog is developing. And to share with you the 2012 In Review report for the Letting Go Cafe. Happy New Year Alan.
