Some Network Marketers recruit team members by telling them how easy it is to make money in the NWM industry. In many of these cases, these leaders over-promise, and, as a result, their new team members under-deliver.
When people are recruited on the premise that the job is easy, they may not realize the time, effort, and skill that is actually required. They may not really want to work THAT hard.
The truth is, network marketing is SIMPLE, but it definitely is not EASY.
I remember when I first started in network marketing, my mentor sat me down and told me that the number one thing to remember is that the only person you’re going to have to recruit is yourself.
Yeah, right. (insert eye roll)
This left me thinking… this isn’t going to work. What about recruiting others? I have to grow a team to be successful.
But here’s the thing, recruiting yourself means that you’re decisive. When you’re indecisive about your any aspect of the business, why would anyone want to join you? If you aren’t sure your products are really that great, that is going to come through to potential customers. Why would they buy from you? If you aren’t real committed to your company or the network marketing industry, that will be apparent to your prospects. Why would they want to join your team?
