MLM Leadership :: Leveraging Talents For Team Success

Let’s discuss Leveraging talents for team Success. Have you been in business long enough to meet people who proudly proclaim to be ‘one man/woman bands’ …?  I certainly have. They think it’s a badge of merit, and also use this as a way to sneak diss other people. It’s a way of saying, I am doing this all by myself because no one else wants to do this with me.

When talking of the “long walks” I have been on, even I must be careful not to make this misstep.

This is also why I want to put this out here, so no one gets this idea. In fact, let’s discuss from an MLM Leadership perspective, and a business owner P.O.V. as well.  Because this industry attracts so many people with a self employed mentality, there are several ‘leaders’ who are pulling together. In MLM, Leadership truly is all about Leveraging Talents for Team Success. It does involve understanding ‘how to play the game’, and from there individual talents can shine through.

For example – some people are great talkers, but if they don’t understand how to play this game, they’ll talk themselves out of sales.

The ‘best use’ of that talent, is Doing Presentations and Training. If you’re a leader that enjoys speaking, be sure to apply that talent where it matters. Spending time talking, for the sake of talking, is eating up time you (or that leader) could be spending on prospecting.  Let’s say you don’t like to talk ‘verbally’ but do enjoy speaking with your hands. Many of you ‘should’ be using those talents to ‘write’ for your team.  Instead of just tweeting, or debating politics on facebook, ‘apply’ your talents for team success.

In MLM, too often folks want to play every single role. To be fair I see this in business too.

Some leaders will have a team member who makes beautiful flyers, and instead, decide to make the flyers themselves.  They don’t have the same sense of design, and feel like it won’t really matter. Unaware of the psychology that is going on with the people they’re seeking to reach. These leaders are short sighted, and are more interested in being in charge, playing the role – than BEING that role. A real leader, a good one, will leverage the talent on the team. Leveraging that talent, using the one who excels at it, gives that leader more ‘time’ to do other things. The flyer, designed by a better eye, will also be more effective when promoted. The end result of the two people leveraging their talents together would be a much larger ‘turn out’ to the event, the leader and the team is promoting.

Where as, cutting the flyer designer out, makes them feel ‘less a part of the team’, and less likely to even help promote said event. Especially when the flyer is trash….

Image result for team frustration

When building teams, the first thing I’m examining is talent. I look at skill sets to see where the best place to put them would be.  This is a big reason that for years, while building Crazygood, another leader on my team was doing the weekly presentations. Even though I was more than capable, had already made video presentations to recruit most of my leaders, to ‘grow’ the team, I knew I would need other leaders, to Help lead.  This was a very effective move, that eventually went from leveraging talents for team success, to coming up with an entire system for all our multiple streams.

That, however, became the new challenge. Several ‘leaders’ have come through the doors of the 1mlmsystem, but most are promoting a company.  I’m looking for the people, who come through our doors, talking about building a team.

Facebook Down, Instagram WhatsApp Too; DDos Attack

Today Facebook and it’s family of social media platforms are down; Facebook Down, Instagram Down, WhatsApp is down too. The outages apparently the result of a DDos Attack. Not too long ago I cut a video that you can see below, about why Facebook Sucks for Network Marketers. I feel that too many people in network marketing rely on this platform ‘only’, and tune out other options to use, while building. Along with the attraction to automation, networkers are losing the much needed human touch.

Plus with Facebook Down, and others you see how fragile your business can be.

“if”, this is how you’re building your business.  That facebook “Live” you were using isn’t going out to most of your audience today. The IG TV show you put together to launch your business, also failed you today. A while back, sites using facebook as a way for members to login, were unable to serve their customer bases. (Because users could not log in.)

Throughout the years, it’s grown too popular and far too powerful. I no longer use their ‘comment section’, so that our site is not going to go down, when Facebook is.

With Facebook down, we get lessons on ‘all your eggs in one basket’. This is an argument for diversity, and decentralization. more than likely Facebook, IG and WhatsApp will recover from this DDos Attack. Knowing these can happen at any time however, should make you, think more deeply about your approach to building.

Use TheConversionPros to build lead capture pages, landing pages, and use their auto responders to Market ‘directly’ to your leads through email.  Email marketing is a lost art. I guess the argument is, people don’t read their emails anymore.  It’s not a lie though.

Readers are leaders and frankly, the industry is missing Leaders … who Read ….

We used to recommend ‘building through our 1mlmsystem Live Office’, but now we have “The Secret Office”.  All part of The Rich Man’s Plan from TNG, it is a similar concept. When building, you and I have to get prospects ‘out’ of environments with distractions. Back in the day that meant going to a hotel conference room, or ballroom meeting. Pulling people out of environments that distract them, help you build better teams. Teams of people who will read email they see, from you.

While facebook down trends, and jokes are made on twitter, lessons await to teach the Student who is Ready.

This user isn’t joking, they’re… very frustrated.

Again, this is what happens when people don’t spread themselves out. Again, I’m the guy who blamed ‘the people’ when Crazygood went out of business. I said people using it, did not place value on using the network. They all kept putting value on Facebook. That ‘same energy’ has gone into instagram, and that’s why facebook bought them. When TSU rolled out, the same thing happened again.  Folks didn’t use it ‘like they used’ facebook.  Too many people treated it like something different, and that’s why it went out of business.

Other Jokes from Facebook Down on Twitter …

TNG Launches Rich Man’s Plan For MLM Industry

A few weeks ago, I announced that I’d be launching The Rich Man’s Plan. Yes, it’s a direct response to the thief who came into our system, and decided to ‘try’ and use our principles for his own benefit. It taught me that I’ve got to do better at safeguarding what I’ve created.  If you or anyone else comes across these ideas, you’ll know immediately they came from TopNetworkersGroup.  You see, within the MLM industry, the ideas I’ve presented have been unpopular. They have been slow to catch on, as the Old Guard fights to keep the status quo.

The problem with status quo in MLM is 90% of our industry is broke.

That statistic has to change, for our industry to ever garner the respect it deserves.  However, if we as leaders won’t lead properly, do we or our industry deserve respect?  IF we continue to do what is not working for 90% of the people in our downlines, should be be called respectable opportunities?  Let’s be honest, as we move forward.

TNG has never been for everyone. People get turned off by all this brutal honesty, and yet I feel that is what’s truly missing from MLM.  You and I need to be honest with one another to build wealth. The way most of us are approaching it, ain’t it!! So our solution has truly been THE answer for some time now.

What’s missing are, the right people, and for a few years now, the right tools.

We’ve had our own websites, which truly were enough to build on. But our Live Office continued to have challenges. Eventually it shut down and I’ve been looking for a new option, to accomplish the same goal.  That Live Office was a POWERFUL tool for us.  We debuted it while building Crazygood.  It allowed us to bring a random person to our office, show them the opportunity, and they could get started and plugged in to training right away.   If they were smart, they could also start inviting others in, and we could build 2-3 levels deep in a day, with a brand new person.

Enter, The Secret Office & The Rich Man’s Plan.  To get an invite, you MUST be on my list for TopNetworkersGroup.com OR be invited by one of our Team Members.

In our update about rebuilding the TNG leadership ranks, it was made clear that this will be an important focus going forward.  This should have been the focus from the start, but it was a ‘late addition’ to the system.  While setting everything up, we never discussed ranks. My co-founder for the system, wanted to focus on ‘a company’, that ended up going out of business. That was always why we were supposed to ‘not’ focus on one company. Mistakes like these, ‘should’ work as lessons, that teach people what not to do.

Sometimes the side effect, is that person is too prideful to admit they were wrong, and they quit MLM all together.

So I am here looking for people that want to LEAD this team, but are willing to follow – not do their ‘own thing’. Unfortunately, that won’t help either of us get the goals we have set for ourselves. We have to follow a structured organized plan. This is where The Rich man’s Plan comes in. It’s a much more organized presentation of the ‘ideas’ we’ve been forming, for these past few years.

I am very excited about what is to come ::: Rich Man’s Plan Sneak Preview below ::

rich mans plan

From day one, I’ve screamed “the companies do not matter” – unfortunately without the right leadership, this message gets lost in translation.   The frontline HAS to understand what this means, or else our mission will not be accomplished.   As I stated earlier, far too many people who came through our system, got ‘hung up’ in the programs.   The last person to sign up for the 1mlmsystem, wanted me to add Wealthy Associate to the ‘line up’ … just another in a long line of people who think I work for them.  Participation Trophy Mentality at it’s … worst … where Reps want uplines to do what THEY tell them to do.   Everyone wants to be a boss, but doesn’t wanna do the work to be a boss. (Correlation between Mentors and Success in MLM)

So if you ‘do’ want to read up on a few of the programs that are involved in our Rich man’s Plan, you Can check these out below:  But if your decision to work with us is based on how you feel about these programs, then that’s the ‘first sort’ – and you’re telling me now you’re not who I’m looking for.

Reading these alone, won’t be enough for you to SEE The full picture. If you’re one of those kinds of people that wanna assume and guess your way through, I am not looking for you either. You can and should take a look at this video on Our New Plan to truly build Wealth through MLM – TNG Founder Qualifications ::: As always thanks for stopping by.

Shark Advice On Failure (Daymond John Instagram Post Inspired)

Would you like some Shark advice on failure?  Meaning, would you like to understand a huge lesson on failure, from a super successful business mogul, like Daymond  John?  If you’re smart your answer will be absolutely yes! Only an egotistical person would pass up on gaining knowledge and insight from a person who’s done what you’re seeking to do.  It happens, surprisingly and people miss out on good lessons all the time, because of that ego. What’s wild about this Instagram post I found on Daymond John’s page is how great the timing is.

I’ve been wrestling with a few things, if I can be honest with you.

Almost, second guessing myself, on whether or not I was ‘wrong’ to blame the people who signed up for Crazygood, for it’s failure. I Did that though, with all good intentions to be totally honest with those that were following me at that time. However I will not lie to you, I do feel that many took that the wrong way. I’ve written about how I needed to have the right people on TopNetworkersGroup to pull it off. I think the people who ‘were’ working with the group, took offense and became even ‘less involved’ than they were (which was not much at all).

Yet in so many ways, I Do believe in pruning the tree – so dead leaves falling off, is important for the Growth of the tree.

Now, I’m looking at this Fresh start;  and yet, still wondering if I was out of line to say, what I’ve said. Thank you Universe for confirmation, through several ‘mediums’. My messenger arrived in the form of an Instagram post, from one of NBC’s Shark tank OG’s, Daymond John.  He was sharing some lessons with his followers, of course.  In these images below, you’ll find his Advice on Failure. Would you like to know the 3 things he noticed, along his path. As you probably know, he’s started a lot of businesses, and not everything panned out.

Some shark advice on failure

reposted to my own IG, with a quick message #TNGForever

advice on failure (Daymond John Shark IG Post)

like I said, this was on my mind. I feel like people took it the wrong way when I said it, but when they hear the same message from a shark, will it change their mind? (or yours?) – am I still wrong for speaking plainly about what it takes to succeed??

 

I absolutely wanted to make sure you read the image above first. In the second one you’ll see the advice on failure that I’ve been speaking of. Number three stood out to me.  If you’ve re-watched the new presentation for Topnetworkersgroup, you’ll hear me talk about this in the presentation. We learned, along the way, that we need the right people to really pull this off.  Too many people in MLM are ‘too independent’ in their thought process.  In network marketing, we need people who can adopt a group mentality.

Speaking plainly, we need more flexible people who are able to do ‘more than just one thing’.

Sure, be able to think for yourself, we love that. But also understand ‘when’ we need you to put your ego aside, so that together the team can win.  Most importantly, I hope you walk away with a better understanding of just how the ‘group’ can fail, because of individuals.  When we choose to act in ‘selfish ways’, we ultimately harm the ‘team’ we are part of. Most recently, we’ve seen this with UCLA and Liangelo Ball, who along with 2 other Teammates caused International News.

ucla players need advice on failure too

They were caught shoplifting, while on a good will trip to China. Without rehashing all of that, the 3 players are Key to UCLA’s success or failure this season.  However, they will possibly be facing up to a year suspension. This means that UCLA will not be as ‘good’ as they would have been with these 3 players. Instead of thinking about the team, these young men were only focused on themselves. They saw personal gain, and things they ‘needed to have right now’.  None of them were thinking about the long term consequences of these actions.  We all see this unfolding on a much smaller scale in the network marketing (MLM) industry all the time.

No, network marketers aren’t always ‘stealing’, but sometimes they are.  Uplines who ‘steal downlines’ are dangerous to the entire industry, especially their ‘network of partners’.  Their poor leadership can actually go on to cause the entire team to fail.  By setting a poor example of what it means to be a leader, that poor example duplicates.

It’s not always the Upline’s fault though.

A very popular past time of network marketers, is blaming their uplines for their own personal failure. Unless your upline is stealing your leads, they are not to blame for failure. An upline’s only job is to lead ‘by example’.   That’s it and that’s all.  They should be telling you what tools to use (because they use them), and what videos to watch (because they’ve watched them). Real leaders let you know what books you need to invest in, because they’ve done it too.   This is right in those 3 tips from the Shark himself!

Number One: I Didn’t do enough research on it.  I’ve been in Network Marketing for several years, and it does not fail that people I sponsor, are lazy.  They really aren’t willing to spend TIME on becoming good at this skill.  Almost everyone is in search of a quick dollar, and this is why the industry isn’t performing as well as it could!  In our One MLM System, there are hours and hours of training videos, but how many people watched those videos?

A lady who didn’t stick around long, actually told me, with pride “I finally figured out how to fast forward the videos!” ……

This is for the people who think I ramble as this blog post is coming up on 1,000 words. You’re fucking lazy. That’s why you’re a failure. Here’s my advice: Stop being so fucking lazy!

She didn’t want to sit through my videos, because she figured the ‘stories’ I’m sharing are ‘just to hear myself talk. Sadly, this is how most people watch Training videos.  They don’t just ‘sit and watch’ or ‘take notes’ and pay full attention.  They check their phones, jump on facebook, and multi-task while a training video is going on.   It’s a poor decision that too many people make, because they frankly lack the discipline to put off what they can get ‘right now’ for what they can have in the long run.

If you can put your phone down, and other distractions down, for at least an hour or two, you’ll be glad you did later.  But this requires having that ‘student mode’ mentality that people with large egos struggle to reach. So whether you take my Advice on failure, or need to listen to someone who you ‘know’ has made millions of dollars  – that EGO has to be out of the way. Otherwise, you’ll skip around and selectively ‘listen’ to what you want to hear. You’ll never ‘truly’ obtain the knowledge you need to succeed.

Take the time to do the research, which includes LISTENING to long training videos that ‘may’ be boring, at first.  When I was with LevelOneNetwork people would pay $500 for the SEO Training courses, and would not watch the videos.   Back when I was in DSDomination, people would sign up and, not watch the videos on Drop Shipping through eBay. Even with TheConversionPros I get people who sign up, and ‘don’t know how to set up a lead capture page’, because, you guessed it …. They won’t watch the videos.

Take the Sharks advice on Failure, if you won’t take mine. Stop being lazy, and get around the right people.
