What could I possibly do at the age of 53? The age at which many people are thinking about how to spend their nest egg. Or contemplating their round the world travel adventure. Here I was thinking about starting a whole new career. It was scary!
However I have always maintained a keen interest in health, especially my own. I started taking some products that made me feel more energetic. I could now sleep soundly during the night and my knees didn’t lock up anymore.
I got to thinking that perhaps I could promote these incredible life changing products to others! After all who wouldn’t like to feel like they were ten years younger? It’s amazing how your passion for something can rub off. I started to have moderate success at promoting the products.
The idea and the means from moving away from the 8.30 to 4.30 grind slowly began to take hold. I was embracing network marketing. However whilst I was having success at selling products, networking and building my own team was a different proposition. I was told to buy leads and use the inviting formula to introduce them into my business. It sounded easy, I could memorise the script. I was very enthusiastic, yet the phone felt like it was made of lead.
I had an amazing mentor, he had the gift of the gab. I reckon he could convince the eskimoes that they needed more ice. I tried very hard and I was an attentive student, but somehow the phone still felt like lead. I am sure the prospects could sense that on the other end of the line. Needless to say my results at trying to recruit people were dismal.
What was I missing? It seemed like my mentor was an authority when I listened in on his calls. He had posture and could lead the conversation whenever he wanted to. It came from experience and being successful. Now here was my dilema, how could I have posture and feel successful at recruiting when I knew that I wasn’t?
I worked hard and managed to recruit three people, two being my mum and sister. Unfortunately people were somehow evading me, especially my friends. The three foot rule was becoming indeed difficult to use. Nobody wanted to be within thirty meters of me! The three foot rule being that you talk to anyone close enough about your unrivaled business opportunity and your life changing products.
I had to somehow develop posture! This initiated a lot of soul searching and asking many questions. At first I couldn’t find the answers. They said it was my belief, I had to believe that Network Marketing was a genuine industry. I did believe that it was a genuine industry. I was advised to do more professional development. This I did. However the leads were getting expensive and the results were still nonexistent. I even had lead rage on one of my calls.
A charming person had played a prank on one of her friends and signed her up for many business opportunities. When I contacted her she wasn’t at home, unfortunately for me her mum took the call. It seemed that they were fed up with the amount of calls they had received and had engaged the police to clear up the mess.
All of a sudden I am part of a police investigation just for making a call to a potential prospect. Fortunately nothing came of it and I breathed a sigh of relief. All of a sudden the challenges of the classroom started to melt away like an iceberg in the Sahara desert.
Yet something kept driving me. I knew I could be good at Network Marketing if only I had a system! These were my thoughts…
Ask and you shall receive
It seemed like my prayers were answered. A close friend of mine suggested that I should read an ebook she had delivered to her inbox called success in ten steps by Michael Dlouhy.
Well, I was amazed when I downloaded the ebook and began reading the content. I could relate to all of the challenges, failures and frustrations mentioned in the ebook. I could have easily written that ebook about myself.
The best part is that it came with training and a whole system for free. The next bit of the puzzle to come together, is that a mentor contacted me by the name of Robert Klinga.
That was over two years ago. He still phones me every week on a Sunday night to coach and mentor me.
He truly is a mentor with a servant’s heart. He is always very positive and challenges me to take the next step towards becoming a very successful professional network marketer.
Listening without an agenda
The color personality training on page 69 of the ebook and the free live clients calls have taught me to listen with my heart and remove the agenda from my conversations with my clients.
This just a mere taste of what the system offers…
The system is called Mentoring For Free because it is priceless and I am very grateful to have been introduced to it. My wish and desire for you is to be fortunate enough to possess such a system for your own online network marketing venture. If you do not have such a system then I suggest you borrow ours because it will work no matter what company you are in.
