Leadership is Tough Decisions Made For The Best

Leadership is tough. Leaders often have to make unpopular decisions; and too many ‘followers’ like Popular Leaders; the ones who please the crowd; and do what the crowd wants rather than what NEEDS to be done; That why it’s tough.

If you please the crowd, you meet their need for immediate gratification – and yet if that decision ends up being BAD longterm; the people will not say “well we wanted the short term solution!” — nope; They’ll call you a bad leader.

Leadership is tough.

When you make the unpopular decision; You loose followers; People say you don’t know what the hell you doing; Should your plan fail due to lack of support; People won’t say well not enough people supported …. They’ll say … He/She is a bad leader.

Leadership … is tough.

That is why in all my years of training in the realm of business, on the topic of Leadership, I always mention the role of followers as well; because it truly is the key; a good leader needs good followers; That is what makes the Tough job of leadership … easier.

And .. it sets up those followers to become great leaders in the future; as they too will understand the tough decisions that need to be made; and will realize the importance of the support needed to accomplish any goal.

Been On A Long Walk : Leadership Challenges

Some leadership challenges are all too common.

Big reason why I’m a fan of Game of Thrones, is they often deal directly with leadership deficiencies in various Characters. Robert Baratheon, the King we first meet when the story begins, is a great warrior, but a terrible ruler. He’d rather leverage all of the day to day duties to others. This, was his downfall as King. People he entrusted with power, saught more power for themselves. They conspired against King Robert, and plotted for his downfall.

Leadership Challenges you and I to always pay attention … never take your eye off the ball.

If you’re on my official email list for Topnetworkersgroup, recently you got an email from me that was important. It talks about how I’ve been on a long walk.

This is a quote from John C. Maxwell, and also refers to a blog post here on “It’s All of it” – about leadership, influence, and asks ‘who is following you?”

“If no one is following you, then you are just taking a long walk.” – John C. Maxwell

The text of my Email read:

I’ve been taking a long walkLong walks are good though, it helps to clear the head….

On this long walk, I have noticed ‘what and who’ people are following, instead of me. What people follow, fails them. Yet I don’t feel bad because they made that decision, to follow the frauds, the scams, and the short cuts – Instead of me.

This long walk has helped me get clear on who and what I need on my team; I often ask you to unsubscribe, and will do so again because if you’re on my list and we’re not working together — WHY ARE YOU HERE —- ?

…. The long walk continues.


Leadership Challenges us to be Honest with ourselves, and those we lead.

Being honest with ourselves, can be difficult. After seeing how many people were signing up for my system, who were not ‘completing’ sign up steps I had to be honest. Is my system as ‘simple’ as it needs to be? Do I just not have the right leaders to build this team with? If so, is it up to me to find The leaders I need?

All of these questions, I have asked myself, on this Long Walk.

I’ve been meditating on it all, and the answers have come. Knowing what I need to do, and doing it, are two different things. This is a challenge that all of us can probably relate to. We know that ultimately to build our businesses, we must make contact. Waiting for people to come to us (Attraction Marketing) can only go so far. For those who, like me, believe in more hands on approaches, let’s have a serious discussion today.

Visit a system I’m proud to recommend; let’s partner here and discuss what Else we can do together.

Teams Wear The Same Uniforms For A Reason

We talk about Teams often around here.

I talk about Team at least. I cannot say the same for every single person who’s opted in to my email list; or signed up for our One MLM System – and that is what I’d like to talk with you about now. File this under Sports and Business – because this ongoing conversation we are having with the network marketing industry involves understanding the nature of Championship teams – and teams that never win Championships.

In the MLM Industry a glaring statistic has been sticking out to me like a splinter – an obvious issue for all of us; that our current approach to MLM is not solving. 97% of the industry is NOT earning full time income. When I think about why that is, one reason pops up for me time and time again.

Too many network marketers think as ‘individuals’ rather than as ‘teams’ –

Teams wear the Same uniforms for a reason. How would it look if the Lakers showed up to play a game and some had on the Purple Road Uniforms; Some had on the Sunday Whites (on a Tuesday); and others had on The Gold Home Uniforms?

They would look like a bunch of Amateurs.

This is what people in Network Marketing are doing; and have been doing; and are doing even MORE OF as we enter into the 5th Wave of Network Marketing (which is already here). The internet has changed so much about business; and that is especially true about network marketing. Getting the Team to wear the Same Uniform has always been the mission of most network marketing companies.

It’s always been difficult – it’s not a new challenge that we are facing; BUT it’s a challenge that’s even more challenging now; because of the internet.

The speed of the internet allows more and more people to access information from several sources; and this expands every single day.

So the moment I do a video, or write a blog post on why Multiple Streams of Income is a Must for network Marketers; there are 30 other people online talking against this idea.

Because people in network marketing see themselves as individuals and not teams; they do not look at their sponsors or uplines as ‘coaches’ – even if they refer to themselves as Coaches; They see them as just another individual who’s above them; and isn’t going to boss them around or tell them what to do!

That creates a HUGE problem for almost everyone in the industry. Rather than being a team; we’re all individuals – and because of that, our teams are not winning championships. Meanwhile we’re not learning from the few championship teams that keep winning, while the rest keep on coming up short.

We need to learn, that Teams wear the Same Uniform for a reason …

Teams Run the same Plays for a reason …

Teams show up to the Same Game; on the Same Night; at the Same Time; for a reason …

Teams Practice together – for a reason …

Teams know they have a SEASON and players do not quit the team when they lose a game or two. They keep working and keep growing, and keep improving… for a reason.

A Team that doesn’t win a Championship in Year 1; Comes back for Year 2 and they give it another shot – and none of this is happening in Network Marketing; at least not for 97% of people in this field. We talk so much about teamwork in the industry – and yet MOST people are missing that lesson.

I made an ‘infographic’ to explain this point…

Teams Wear the Same Uniform for a reason

“That upline isn’t gonna tell me what uniform to wear!”

That’s the attitude most people have in network marketing. Most people really are expecting to do everything on their own and call all of their own shots. I get that. We all want to own our own businesses and so many MLM companies pitch that in their meetings. It’s true you will have the time freedom to pick and choose when you’re going to work. You Do get to decide what websites you’re going to use to market and promote. You do get to decide Who you’re going to listen to, and who you’re going to follow.

That isn’t the problem.

The problem is – most of you do not know when to exercise your freedom to choose; and when you should be choosing to Duplicate the efforts of other people; rather than reinvent the wheel.

When you sign up for the one mlm system; you’ll be directed to sign up for our Free Level Programs. The ‘free thinker’ decides to question this “why should I sign up for these?” – The Team player says “This is what the team is doing; so this is what I’m doing too.”

Then we advise you Sign others up; Make Money from the Free Programs; and use $10 to re-invest in our $10 level. The ‘free thinker’ decides to question this “why should I sign up for these? I don’t like ILA; I don’t like GDI; I am going to Promote another program instead” – The Team player says “This is what the team is doing; so this is what I’m doing too.”

Next we advise that you seek to attain Leadership Ranks with Our team; The ‘free thinker’ decides to question this “why should I do that? This is Al King’s team; I want my Own team, I don’t want to be a leader on HIS team” – The Team player says “This is what the team is doing; so this is what I’m doing too. Because I want to be a Leader on This team.”

 

Magic Johnson said it best … One player doesn’t win the championship; The Team wins the championship. There absolutely is no I in team; and while there may be an I in win; the key is learning when to be about yourself; and when to be about others. It’s balance – it’s the free choice we all have – to understand that there is a time and place for All things.

There is a time to lead; there is a time to follow.

Now is the time to FOLLOW TopNetworkersGroup.

Put your ego aside; Leave your problems and your questions at the door.

Put on the uniform we give you.

Show up to practice; Show up to the Games;

Commit to the Season; not just to a few games;

But more specifically — Use the Same Websites!

I am specifically talking to network marketers who call themselves internet marketers; and do not understand that there is a difference. Internet Marketing is what you do ‘for yourself’. Network Marketing is what you do ‘as part of a team’ – Networks should use the same websites to market or promote a business.

I’ve seen so many people sign up for the 1mlmsystem – who use their OWN Website to promote the system; and wonder why it’s not working out for them. It’s the same silly mentality as showing up to a Game when you feel like it; rather than when the game is scheduled for. It’s just as silly as Practicing on your own; instead of WITH The team. It’s just as moronic … to be honest … as creating your own plays rather than learning the plays the coach of your team is calling.

You wouldn’t do this if you were playing Sports.

But you do this in Network Marketing.

I had a guy get upset with me because he was doing this – I called him out (in our private group on facebook, for talking up some OTHER guys program in our group); and I understand him not being pleased by that. However how can I teach other players on the team what not to do; if I don’t use him as an example for what not to do?

Isn’t that what a coach does when a player on the team is not being a team player?

If teams wear the same uniform for a reason; wouldn’t a coach point out a player on the team for choosing to wear the uniform he or she wanted to wear; instead of wearing the same one as the team?

It’s part of being the Coach though. Coaches have to risk upsetting players from time to time; meanwhile players who win championships respond positively to coaching. They don’t mind being corrected; They are okay with being told what to do; what uniform to put on. They want to win and realize the Coach wants to win too.

They’re not questioning the plays the coach is calling; instead they are working to execute those plays better – that’s what practice is for; That’s what the game losses help point out; the game shows you where you need to improve; where you need to execute better.

Because Sports and Business have So much in Common; I’ve written a few other articles that you NEED to read. Other related articles from TopnetworkersGroup –

Sign up To Work With the Group – by putting your best email in the box – and following the directions you are given; If you cannot follow a leader – You’ll never be a leader.

I made a video a couple weeks ago; where I spoke about the Armed Forces; another Team – where people follow orders – put on the same uniform; follow the same directions; because it struck me as a little odd, that a former Armed forces member didn’t make that connection when it came to what I was saying to him – about Our partnership in MLM.

It’s okay if he didn’t understand; because what I’ve come to understand – is several of the people who’ve come to me; in fact – ALL Of them; have prepared me to lead the NEXT group of people who are on their way to me. Champions continue to tweak and construct their teams; till they get the RIGHT Players; players with the right mentality – players who can win!

Facebook Rants on Multiple Streams of Income, TD Jakes and Talents

Ok … got some more ‘facebook rants’ to share with you today.

If there is one thing I may have a reputation for, it is my Facebook Rants. I type pretty fast so it doesn’t take much for me to really let one out. Especially if I’m sitting at the computer and have some thoughts to share. That’s what happened today – a ‘slow building’ argument or debate, which started a couple days ago on my wall.

I say argument or debate because really that’s what it is. More of a debate perhaps; but it’s a debate that in my mind has gone on for too long; and it happens with far too many people. It mostly happens with My Own community, the Black Community – and it’s one of many motivating factors in starting up “The Black Folder” through our 1mlmsystem.

It’s this idea that Money doesn’t matter, and that we can get into Heaven and live a great ‘after’ life – simply by going to Church every single week and singing along with the choir. (Several of my facebook rants may have ultimately run me off their platform. That’s okay too.)

The bible (for those who like to use it as their reference) clearly states that ‘faith’ without works, is dead. I shared an image on my page which sparked this debate. Here is that image now, and I’ll share the ‘comment’ that has inspired this rant. In fact, it’s funny how things go. Another person in my ‘network of friends’ on facebook said something that fit right in with what I’m about to share – and what I was sharing…. in my latest Facebook Rant.

Facebook Rants on Matching My efforts

I posted this image, along with a simple message to everyone reading my page now, and into the future. As this is really and truly what I want those who work with me to know. “DO what I Do; Get what I get …. Many of you reading this could get even MORE than I do; because you are so much BETTER than I am; but you are settling for LESS than you deserve.

Yea … I know that’s powerful.

That is why I shared it.

It’s true too isn’t it.

If you’re not currently in network marketing, if you have a job or are looking for one, you are absolutely settling for less than you deserve. A job will only pay you so much money; the joke is, jobs pay us just enough for us not to quit.

Most of us work “just hard enough” not to get fired.

This is what’s known as Employee Mentality.

It’s also, Slave mentality.

We don’t see ourselves as more; So we don’t put in the effort to have more.

Which brings me to my Facebook Rant on Multiple Streams of Income, Bishop T.D. Jakes, And the Parable of the Talents. I’ll start there.

In response to this image, and my message – a guy responded by telling me The following message.

But see this world is so turnt, I don’t desire anything but what I need for my survival. What I want is a spot in Heaven & I am working on that. I dig your message though

I feel sorry for this brother. His mindset and mentality have been so beat up by this world, that he no longer has any hope left. He has no belief in himself or his ability to have abundance. He, like so many, have decided to ‘settle’ for just enough to survive.

The problem with this mentality is, He, like so many, feel this mentality will get them into Heaven. That is what brought me to the Parable of the Talents.

I grew up in Church. I’m well educated on this topic; So it always pains me that so many folk go to Church every week; and seem to not read their Bible at any point in the Week; Not only does that bible say Faith without Works is dead; but Jesus shares a story about how God views those who do “nothing” with their lives.

Watch The Parable of The Talents

This story is so powerful – It’s always been with me. I walked away from ACN (my first MLM company) in 2004, after 5 years. While away, I had all sorts of issues in my life – some brought on by me. I was down in the dumps, and then I recalled this lesson.  I realized, I have talents, and I must do all I can to improve on them; double them; grow them. I returned to MLM in 2009 with a renewed mind and mission. I came back with a new understanding. The experiences I encountered opened the doors to create TopNetworkersGroup; and eventually the 1mlmsystem.

I feel we are called to do special things while we are alive on this earth. I believe evil prospers because the good do nothing. I agree with those who say the 1% have all the wealth, because the 99% continue to give them all of their money.

You and I make decisions every day; to make our world better – OR to allow others to make it worse. MLM is a way to improve our world; but it’s up to those of us who believe in MLM to help others see that reality. Once again, that’s where WE come in.

So in response to my good friend who made this horrible comment on my awesome image – I decided to do ‘all I can do’ to help him see the light. If he really wants to get into Heaven; he needs to do more with his LIFE now.

This brings me to Multiple Streams of Income.

richmindset_msoi

Another person in my “network of friends” whom I’ve known for a lot less time had something interesting to say. That we all need to read Ecclesiastes 11: 2that we are instructed to have more than one stream of income; and this is true. 

 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.”

Shout outs to Mr. Rich Mindset – I love the timing and the congruency.

It let’s me know this message is in ‘time’ with my ‘vibe’ right now….

and that, brought me to the latest, Facebook Rant by yours truly, Al King

——————

The Famous ‘Al King Facebook Rants’ on Multiple Streams of Income, Bishop T.D. Jakes and Talents

The problem with most of you is you think Money is your Mission…. smh

MONEY funds your Mission.

I didn’t get into MLM to stay in MLM forever.

I’m on earth to do MUCH bigger things than JUST be in an MLM company.

I have bigger callings; and I DO MORE than I speak about on Facebook – because I was not CALLED to just be in MLM; I write, I blog, I teach, i build websites, and I continue to ADD to my self; improve the gifts God gave me; because I KNOW who I am and WHOSE I am.

you fell out with me because you didn’t like a MLM I was promoting??

God basically removed you from my life because YOU were not called to be in it. if you were You’d Recognize Who you’re in business with.

Oh you’re mad at me Family member cuz I won’t come hang out a the Strip Club and Throw my Money away with you — OH you don’t think I’m doing anything more important; Hey, perhaps God didn’t Call YOU either.

If you’re Called; you’ll know this is the Truth.

Many are called though … but ‘few’ are Chosen.

I remember talking to a dude who QUIT MLM because he wanted to focus on the “Kingdom of God” — Evil prospers because the Good Do nothing.

Too many people go to CHURCH On Sunday; But they don’t READ the Bible during the Week; NOR are they paying attention to the Preacher in the Pulpit during the Service; Sadly, even some Preachers aren’t paying attention to the Bible they are preaching from – MONEY is a way to FUND The MISSION —

You Reject Money?

YOU are rejecting the MISSION God Gave you then —

(put your best Email here – get started with TopNetworkersGroup Today)

I know God called me into MLM – the same week I looked up in the sky, I said a Prayer for God to send me an Opportunity; and Andrew Collins hit me up about ACN; When I walked away from ACN — all kinds of things fell apart in my life — I got out of LISTENING to personal growth; I got away from being around Positive people; I was settling just like everybody ELSE; Then God Came and Woke me back up; Put some more Challenges in my Life; allowed ME to falter so I could turn once again towards Him; and HE brought me back …. To HIM be the Glory!

NOT all of you are MEANT to work with me — believe me; I know that before you; I’m not here to learn from you; Unless I sign up for YOUR class. If you sign up for mine, put your student hat on; get ready to LEARN; Get ready to CONNECT; Get ready to SHARE …. Get ready to EARN.

GET ready to make the world a better place; ONE person at a time.

TopNetworkersGroup – a subsidiary of SeekingAHomeBusiness.com – which is owned and operated by KingsTeamInternational.com (the Parent company of it all)

— The mission continues; WITH or WITHOUT you.

This Rant, was posted along with the following video, featuring Bishop T.D. Jakes as he speaks on Multiple Streams of Income. It’s biblical – Goes back to Adam and Eve.

You see, where Ecclesiastes 11: 2 speaks about preparing yourself by investing in several places, not just one. This message brings it home. Too many of us are content with a job; Some of us are Content to be the TOP earner in an MLM company; on top of an organization that is struggling to maintain their autoships.

The people at the TOP Must look out for the people at the bottom; Telling the people at the bottom to “only focus on this MLM business”  blinds them from seeing the big picture. It’s not about this MLM vs That MLM; it’s about MLM vs Corporate America.

It’s about MLM vs Working a Job.

It’s about working together to enrich and empower one another; instead of going to work, to empower and enrich someone else; who really could care less about any of us —

It’s about FIXING our planet; and using MLM as a means to an end.

Some of you will get that later …

If you truly desire change; God will provide a way. You just need to take action;

Because faith, without works is Dead.

Thanks for reading.

The Famous Al King Facebook Rants on Business Partnership

The Famous Al King Facebook Rants – something I get inboxes about – because from time to time I WILL get one off; on my social media wall 🙂 — Tonight, I let one rip on the topic of “Business Partnership” – and shared quite a bit of my own ‘personal story’ – as well as some of what I’ve dealt with over the past few years, while making our Idea – and our Concept something that others can Easily Duplicate — I saw a Clip from an internview featuring Lebron James – We’ve discussed how closely Sports and Business relate – well one of the BIGGEST lessons I can ever teach you, is contained in my latest, famous facebook rant —

But First – CHECK Out the CLIP! – Lebron James All Star Interview – NBA TV

Lebron James and Dwyane Wade

See…… Here COMES that RANT ……

I’m watching NBA TV right — and you know I LOVE my Basketball; you KNOW I love my SPORTS — You know my MESSAGE — ‪#‎itsabouttheteamnotthecompany‬ — and I’m watching a ‘preview’ of an Interview with LeBron James — coming up on NBA TV this weekend — and in the short Clip, He’s talking about “That MOMENT” — when Him and D-wade Figured it out.

SEE ………… THIS IS WHAT I’m SAYING THOUGH!!!! (is what I think after he says it…. and I knew it was coming) — Steve Smith asked LeBron about it; He said “How did you two work it out, with TWO Leaders” …?

when was that moment that The Heat finally got it going; He said … they were 8-9 — and Him and D-Wade looked at one another and were like “Did we make the right choice??”

—- Lebron said…. D-Wade came to him and said “In order for us to win, YOU have to be that guy — I’ll take a step back, and you have to shine” (paraphrased) — and THIS IS What I KEEP TRYING TO SAY!!!! (I say to myself) — THIS Is what I’ve been telling my “leaders” for the past year.

For those who do not know; the ‘short version’ of a very LONG story is; I’m a Veteran of this here MLM Industry; Struggled in my first company for 5 long years; came up with a TON of experience; but not much ‘money’ — but I’ve been doing “internet network marketing: since 1999 (and that’s why I get so annoyed with so many people ‘in the game today’ because they don’t know who they are talking to when they talk) — Started a Web Design Company — in 2004; started Building sites with lead Capture Pages; Started Studying the teachings of Stephen Pierce and Mat Bacak in 2005 — and was making decent money from various projects I put together — when I got that ‘itch’ …. and came back to MLM in 2009.

I linked up with some Well Trained Leaders – cats I worked with initially in MLM – me and one of those leaders put 1,000 people into a company in 4 months; 400 of them were through my leg; over the next few months our team grew; Mine to around 700; his total team to almost 2,000 — and then our company went out of business; lots of stuff happened; everyone went their seperate ways; due to conflicts in philosophy over HOW to grow a team that makes money in multiple places —- not just one; Started TopNetworkersGroup in 2010 — and have been “perfecting this Idea/Concept” ever since — meanwhile, most of the people I’ve worked with, are Not Well Trained “leaders” —

No offense; it’s just what it is – and yet, I’ve been trying, VERY Hard to Teach many of them leadership; Over the past couple years; Most of my “main Leaders” decided they knew more about it than I did; Most of them decided to do thingstheir own way – and not my way; and so that’s fine; Just means I needed to continue to build “ME” and continue to look for others who can Follow My Lead — because a “Business Partnership consists of ONE leader and ONE follower” — You cannot have TWO LEADERS in a business partnership.”

THIS is a REALIZATION that came to me, after WORKING with several hard headed leaders from 2009 to 2011 — and then from working with several leaders throughout 2012 — When we launched the ONE MLM System, we still had a “leadership issue” — where I signed up several LEADERS — who wanted to LEAD me; and wanted to TEACH me; and Hey, I’d be more than willing to take a back seat; it’s just that these “leaders” are not anywhere near as experienced; nor were they as Committed to the long term Vision; and that’s where it dawned on me —

I mostly look for Leaders; but unless a leader is willing to take a back seat (at least for a minute) — and actually LISTEN to what I’m talking about — it’s just not possible for them to co-exist (and vice versa) — and to me, that’s not a Partnership; A partnership – is what everyone in business NEEDS to be successful in business; but that is one of the most difficult things to find; especially in MLM – because everyone thinks they are a FREE Agent; They’d rather be an Allen Iverson and score a bunch of Points but win NO Championships — than be a Lebron James and take their Talents to a TEAM that already has something in Place….

While I heard people bash Cedric Harris for his decision to join OrganoGold; I respected his reason; of teaming up to LEARN From and be MENTORED by the #1 earner in the entire industry — to ‘take a backseat’ and learn from someone even better.

BUT how DIFFICULT is that to do for “leaders” ??

It’s VERY Difficult — because Leaders have THE BIGGEST EGOS!!!

This is is why I could ‘never’ take a backseat to someone who isn’t more skilled than I am; and frankly – When D-Wade thought about it; yea it was his team; BUT — LeBron was BETTER – STRONGER – YOUNGER – FASTER — and VERY much his equal or better; That’s why they put together the kinda run they put together. THIS IS also why the Lakers could NOT win the 8 Championships Shaq/Kobe should have Won.

Shaq couldn’t take a Backseat.

As Kobe’s talent grew; as he Emerged more and more as a Star and Leader – that was the moment for Shaq to share the Throne; Shaq was stubborn; and when he got TRADED – he woke up and did the right thing, supporting D-wade’s Leadership; to get the Heat their first Championship.

DID I hit anyone YET?

SOME OF YALL are LEADERS but your SKILL is NOT at that LEVEL and you’d make MORE MONEY if you’d take a ‘backseat’ —–

(I told yall this was one of those……….. so you were warned)

“A Business Partnership is ONE Leader and ONE Follower” – Al King, 1mlmsystem training –

This is really touching a nerve for me; Sometimes I have to ask God if I made the right decision when I do things that I “know’ may not come off as P.C. and may not make others happy; Like a ‘new leader’ who found my system on YouTube; called me up because he had the ‘same idea’ — but like Soooo many other ‘leaders’ – he wanted to suggest programs …

It’s about the TEAM not the company —

He wanted to fly me out to Detroit to look at Epic (new company —)

It’s about the TEAM not the company I tell him ….

He says “Al, I know that, I just want you to look at this and tell me what you think” —– “I think you need to FINISH filling out your 1mlmsystem profile before you PITCH me on anything” — Al I’m not pitching, just want you to look!!!

“Look at what? All MLM’s do the SAME THING?? The company does not Matter!” — I tell this dude; finally he goes; checks it out; it’s $900; he realizes the people there are Paid to promote it; and are CHaSING a Lifestyle they had; before theire last MLM went out of business on them (and they lost all their money ) — and I’m like SEE —– it’s about the TEAM … not the company….

So the NEW guy gets home; calls me up and says “Al you were right; I wanna put you on the phone with some guys I want to bring into the system” —- and I’m like …….. ” I need you to fill out your PROFILE before you put me on the phone with anybody!!!”

and he’s like “Yea Al, I get what you’re trying to do; and I’m gonna do that; but you really gotta talk with these guys; they got a $15 program you might wanna add to the system you have…. Oh and I’m setting up a system too with the programs i want to have in it…” …

I shake my head.

“It’s about the TEAM not the COMPANIES!!” ….

Seriously ….. when I found out MLM is the people business, I had doubts; I never really been a fan of people (admission – most of you bother me on so many levels – I try to smile and look for the good anyways – because I REALLY wanna help people! …. but people are SOOOO hard to help!)

So this new ‘leader’ — has gotten on my nerves; he keeps wanting me to LOOK at this or that; and says he ‘gets’ what I’m saying; and yet, he’s not Acting like it; SUPER disrespectful; So I tell the guy — ” i respect that you’re a Pastor, and I’m not gonna come to your Church and Tell you how to Preach to your Congregation, but you are on My Ship; and if you’re gonna be on my ship, you need to follow the command, or get OFF the ship! I do not need to be SHOWN anything but you filling yout that profile.”

This Ignant cat STILL wanted to talk to me about looking at the $15 — so I politely excused him from participation. What mostly bothered me, is I gave him my definition of a business partnership; to which he wanted to argue. He wanted to tell me that a Husband needs to listen to his Wife…..

at which point in time, I reminded this Pastor That he’s not Biblical; because the BIBLE says “wives, Submit to your Husbands” – it does not say Husbands Submit to your WIVES — and frankly … ok I already ranted on that — (no longer working with any Man who has to ask his Wife for permission to make money!) —- DIGRESSING — the point is; Even the BIBLE states – a “good partnership’ has ONE Leader; and ONE Follower.

TWO Leaders aint no Partnership;

TWO Leaders trying to Lead Each OTHER will NEVER win Championships!

WHO Wants to WIN in 2014???

INBOX me — but if you’re not BETTER than me; if your SKILLS are not on MY LEVEL — Do not come at me with WHO you’re listening to; and what you KNOW; and what you THINK;

COME to my Ship, play by MY RULES; PRODUCE –and “then” we can discuss what you know, what you think, and what you feel ….

PRODUCE — FOLLOW my Lead — OR get your ass off my Boat.
