Star Wars Last Jedi Lesson For Me and My MLM Journey

After going to see Star Wars the Last Jedi, I filmed a video on a huge Lesson I learned, and how it applies to MLM.  Leading a movement to change how we approach MLM has not been easy over the years. Iv’e had several business partners come and go, and I honestly found myself feeling like Master Luke in this latest film.  You may have noticed that I’ve been on a ‘blogging hiatus’ for a few months, and it’s one of those things I think I’m allowed to after several years of great content for you on these platforms.

However I also left you with a jewel, before taking a holiday vacation from the Shark Daymond John, (giving advice) talking about the benefits of Failure.

Take a few moments to listen to some insights I gained from Star Wars, the Last Jedi

Just like Master Luke, I’ve grown tired of teaching the ‘game’ to network marketers who take these lesson and use them for personal gain.  Far too many turn to the dark side that is ruled by greed.  It’s all of what I’ve been against the entire time, and cannot lie, I’ve contemplated whether I want to be involved.  This is exactly where Luke Skywalker is when we see him in Star Wars, The Last Jedi. He is off on an island all to himself, disconnected entirely from the Force.

Meanwhile I’ve spent most of the past 12 months focused on my Invesments. From Cryptocurrency to real estate, I’ve decided to focus on what I can do for myself.  I got tired of teaching people how to market, how to recruit, and offering them training I wasn’t charging for, just for so many to turn on me in the end.

What I had to learn, came in an unexpected Cameo from Master Yoda.  We are, what they grow beyond… which in Yoda speak translates to, They Grow Beyond What We are.

The One MLM System is going to be re-built, but it’s still there. The structure is in place and the training is available to those who will follow the instructions.

In other words, The Jedi School will re-open soon, and a new generation of Leaders in this space will emerge. Read more from TNG below –

 

Don’t Impulsively Sign Up With Me (Sponsoring In Network Marketing)

Sponsoring in Network Marketing is an art form, a skill set that often goes under appreciated.  it’s like being a great basketball player, where ‘fans’ simply assume your talents were with you at birth. They say, look at how tall you are, how big your hands are, and oh wow – those muscles! You have to have been born with all of your talents, coordination, and ability to hit a jumpshot.  I suppose it’s somewhat natural, since I get this with blogging, with web design, or even making flyers. People do this in the network marketing space as well.  They see people excelling and figure there is no way they could too.

sponsoring in network marketing is a mental thing

When it comes to sponsoring in network marketing, people often look at those who’ve been really good at it and think it must come natural.

There is no way I could ever do that, or be as great at it as that guy.  That top earning woman speaks so well, she uses so many great words, and really knows how to pull people in. I’ll never be able to sponsor people like they do!

This negative self talk absolutely damages your chances of success. No way will you ever find yourself sponsoring in network marketing like top earners do, with that inner dialogue going on.  Not only does that have to change, but so do your ideas about thinking that WHO your sponsor is, matters.  It doesn’t matter at all, and you’ll only come to find that out later.

If you’re just starting out, or if you’ve been struggling you may not fully understand this. Your sponsor does not matter.  Signing up with a top earner, does not mean you are going to become a top earner too. They may not teach you everything they know, or may have cut corners. Most often, top earners tend to be great at signing up people who are greater at sponsoring than they are!

Did you catch that?

They’re not always ‘the best’ at it, but they know how to attract ‘the best’.  People have different skill sets and that is why Teamwork is so crucial in network marketing. This is not an individual sport, here, success happens in groups. Oftentimes the success of the group, or lack of it, will impact your individual sponsoring production. To put it more simply, if you’re working with a team that is producing results, you can attain similar or better results, just because you are part of that team. The more involved you are with that team, the more likely you’ll benefit from the overall team success.

Sponsoring in Network Marketing is ‘actually’ a teamwork thing ….

Please Review the network marketing training we Provided, which includes Videos on “The Importance of Trust” and “3Ways”

Out the gate I Let you know that ‘if you cannot sponsor people it’s because people don’t trust you. No Trust = No sales.”  As an individual you can ‘only have so much trust’ with others. But when you are part of a ‘partnership’, your ability to build trust with others goes up!  Especially when you dive deeper and use the ‘skills’ we teach within the network marketing industry.  That skill is Edification, a Tool that will Transform your Results in MLM – Edification will help you build ‘trust’, so that you can begin excelling at sponsoring in network marketing.

You actually have to get good at saying GOOD things about other people, and allowing those people to say Good things about you. This ‘good press’ is how a lot of Top earners end up with random people signing up with them. I know because people do this with me. However that’s a huge mistake!  Don’t ‘impulse sign up’ with me, or anyone you don’t really know in network marketing.  Always go back to the person that referred you, because it helps ‘maintain trust’ and respect in the network.  It’s also how we all make money in this space.  When you or I violate that ‘trust’,  we endanger the future of our organizations.

When a Team respects the Network, and shows respect for the Business Partnerships already in place, in the long term, that leads to a team that is even more productive! We can all win together, and together we can all achieve more (Than we could as individuals) – Join our Team via the One MLM System today! (if a team member sent you here, ask for their link to sign up!)

A Motor Club For All Not just A Few

When I was first introduced to MCA by Mr. Daniel Caswell I initially thought it was too good to be true. Why would this company cost me $40 to join; but pay me $80 on every single person I referred? That was my initial question and I’m sure it’s the same for others.

After doing some research I found out this was a upfront bonus – paid out on the expectation that your referral will keep the service for at least one year. When this doesn’t happen there are chargebacks, which on one ever likes in business. However these are perfectly legal, and let’s you know not to just enroll anyone – if you do, hang onto your money for a while. Try not to spend it right away.

Recently I wrote about what TNG is doing to educate people on Sponsoring. Much can be said of the climate of today’s MLM Industry. Lack of loyalty is abundant. Most people join things without really reading. So any good internet marketer is bound to get lots of sign ups for a program like MCA but, that also means lots of people cancelling too.

This happens because most people do not read.

However IF a person reads, and really sees what they are getting for $19.99 per month, why would they cancel? The truth is, educated customers and consumers are always better to market to. They know what they are buying and they want more of it.

When I say Opportunity You ThinK MCA Scam, explores the poison of doubt. Once a person gets a thought in their mind that Motor club of America is not a legit opportunity but is instead, just another Scam – it stops them from actually looking into it.

Wayne Dyer said it best, “The highest form of ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about.” – Yet, people do this all the time.

The fact of the matter is, what most people have been told is where the real scam can be found. Not telling people the entire truth keeps them from ‘thriving’ – perhaps that’s the plan. If you’ve ever watched the movie “thrive” from Foster Gamble, that’s one of several messages he gets across.

People who don’t want to see wealth in the hands of the masses have done all they can for as long as they can, to make sure it does not happen.  You may have fallen victim to their games without ever knowing it.  Today, our plan is to set you totally and entirely free!

 

Maybe it’s You, and Not Crazygood

*Update 2/25/2015 ::: Crazygood Went out of Business – and you can read MUCH more about it in this article, which discusses how We ended up Replacing Crazygood with GDI in our One MLM System — This article includes our official video with thoughts on why CG was unable to make it past 3 years in business. Also – educate yourself about business – and understand that it’s rare for ANY Business to make it past 5 years in business; even fewer make it past 10. Our alignment with GDI, is a great move for us all.

The One MLM System To Rule Them All

Crazygood is an Awesome Opportunity………  If you’re not having success with it, then perhaps it’s you and Not Crazygood?

Where else on the Wide World Web can YOU find a $10/mo Opportunity that pays you and I $1 per referral, per month, through 5 levels ….

Other than GDI – there are NO Other ‘opportunities’ like that On the internet today.

Now, there are several $10 business opportunities; but NONE pay out as much as this one does; That makes this something special.

But if YOU Don’t Know that …. how will the people YOU are talking to?

If you’re running up to people telling them about Crazygood, and you’re not saying the right things in that conversation to Sign people up; then perhaps What you’re saying is wrong?

Have you thought about that?

Unless you already have people that will follow you into anything you are doing, you Must embrace the approaches of Network Marketing that have worked for decades…

Such as…

#1 – Getting Yourself Out of The Way!

Most people in Network Marketing talk too much…. its true. Lots of people join because they see a way for Other people to listen to them talk.

Some people actually LIKE the sound of their own voice so much, it motivates them to join MLM opportunities; the problem with these people is, they never LISTEN and/or LEARN what they should be talking about; because they are too busy talking….

One of the KEYS to getting yourself out of the way is … Knowing how and when to SHUT UP!

Most of the Top Money earners are GREAT at Shutting up, at the right time – they know when to talk; they know when to shut up; and if you’re struggling to sponsor people into a $10 opportunity, this is the first place you should examine yourself…

Are you talking too much?

Do you need to shut up?

Here are some examples to help you decide………

You approach someone that you know, ask them if they’d like to make money online with you, and then…. what do you do?

Do you wait for them to answer you?

Or do you SHOVE a LINK In their face/inbox/email —-without ever giving them a chance to Respond to your question?

Or perhaps they answer you and say “Sure, I’d like to make money, doing what?” … and then YOU think that is YOUR moment to Talk, so you explain every detail and aspect of crazygood; leaving out all the things they really need to hear; and Never once send them to a Website to view a presentation, NOR do you think of Edifying a business partner to talk to THEM on your behalf — all because you’re too busy Talking and Yapping away.

Your prospect decides this isn’t for them — and you can’t figure out why.

Did the person that sponsored YOU explain the business?

Or, did they Shut up, and Show you the business?

If they’re GOOD at this, they shut up and Showed you the business; so that YOU could see the business and decide for yourself if YOU wanted in the business. That’s what you need to learn how to do; You’ve gotta stop giving presentations before the presentations; you’ll get your chances to shine, you’ll get your chances to talk, you’ll eventually get crowds coming to see you … once you learn how to shut up, and show the business.

#2 Edifying and Using Team Partners

Network Marketing is a Team Sport; Too many individuals are joining the industry today; and here is why – the ability to conduct online credit card transactions has made it so much easier for anyone to join any company; at any time…

So people join every single day, who have not been brought through the process properly – and when the process is shown to them, they immediately judge it as too hard, too difficult, too time consuming, or some other ‘too’ – all because they were not introduced properly.

One of the most tragic aspects of this New Age in MLM where anyone can join, is the lost art of Edification…

People joining our industry are bringing the nonsense they got from Corporate America into our wonderful industry; such as backstabbing, stealing, talking bad about others — none of that has a place in Network Marketing ‘done right’ — and it’s a Major reason why people are struggling to succeed.

Edification is a Major Skill we all must have, and use if we expect to get results; Especially with Crazygood. If you just joined today, there are people who have been around longer than you; you need to respect these people — that’s where most of this begins; if you do not respect others; You will not edify others.

IF you do not edify others; No one will ever edify you.

Did that last part make sense?

When we build up respect for our partners; They can build up respect for us; When people see people who are speaking highly of each other, they want to be part of that; See most of you keep making Crazygood ‘the deal’ – you don’t get it…

You really don’t get it!

Crazygood is just a Way to make money; but we Must learn how to work ‘together’ if we are going to make Money together… the better we are at working together, the MORE money we are going to make together; but we must work together; not as individuals.

I’ve been on Crazygood for 2 years; and I have rarely done a 3way for anyone on my team; the few times that I have, I was not edified – and the people I was being asked to speak to, had No respect for me, or my opinion …

How do you think those calls went?

The point of Edifying others is to give our prospects a Reason to Listen – that’s mostly what they want to know  – “Who is your business partner and why should I listen to them?”

.. when YOU do your job properly, you tell your prospect Why they should listen  and like magic, most of your prospects will listen; and show respect while they listen…

When you get good at edifying your business partners, next you’ll learn how important it is to edify your team; to edify your calls; to edify your websites; your videos; This is a Lost Art and if We do not make this an Important part of what we do; we’re asking to fail!

#3 Using Events to Build …

This is our last  thing that I Must point out – the Importance of using Events to build your business. Events are ‘live’ conference calls, webinars, home meetings, or hotel meetings.

When we bring guests to an event and they hear 10 to 20 other people who are as excited about ‘something’ as you are; it builds more excitement for that guest as well.

We ran some experiments with our Crazygood Live Office; where myself and a business partner brought in close to 3,000 people that were ‘clicking to make money’ — We signed up 10-15 NEW business partners; simply because they saw PEOPLE in the room.  The live office shows you how many people are currently online; So people would drop in, see 1,000 people logged in, and the FIRST Thing they started to do was ask us “what is going on?”

When people see Other people doing something, They want to do it too.

Using, and building Events is the MOST important thing we do.

All top producers in any opportunity do this …

However in the past 2 years with crazygood; I’ve seen several leaders, including myself and our team, Hold Weekly Calls that people just didn’t show up for…

And you people want to make money??

You wonder why it’s not happening for you??

Showing up to events is part of it; Inviting guests to events is the other part.

OUR job, when working together, is to BUILD from “event to event” … It’s to use the proper language and approaches to invite guests to Events that will properly expose them to what we’re seeking to do … together; and the better we are at that; the more people will want to join ‘us’ …

So if there is a Live Call on Monday, a Webinar on Thursday, and a Live Meeting on Saturday …. YOU should take a guest to each event.

You shut up, get yourself out of the way, edify a business partner, allow them to help invite your guest to the Conference Call on Monday, where they will hear from leaders on the team; get excited; and then your business partner edifies YOU to your guest, so that you can be successful at inviting them to the live Webinar on Thursday; Because you put in work, your leaders may recognize you on the call, in front of everyone on the team – including your guest — and if they do not Join you after the Webinar, but are still excited – THEY will come to the LIVE event on Saturday; after the live event — If they don’t sign up; it’s probably just not for them — however — it has been proven over several decades that when we build in this manner, we increase the odds of sponsoring new people.

Chances are, YOU are not doing ANY Of these 3 things…

So see, while you are making excuses, OUR team is making money.

Removing all excuses

What we’ve done, in a nutshell, with our 1mlmsystem.com “System” is removed all the excuses that people have made, for why they struggle to earn a consistent, residual check, In Network Marketing.

When TopNetworkersGroup was first put together, it was created out of the ‘struggles’ that myself and several others have experienced in this industry.

We wanted to approach this industry ‘better’ and ‘more professionally’ than I felt most were approaching it. See, MLM was ‘never’ about the company…. and all the top money earners in our industry do not recruit others based solely on how awesome their company is.

The TOP People, recruit people into partnership with THEM.

If my vision for others, is for them to become TOP NETWORKERS – they must have this understanding of how to sponsor others.

Often, “the money” becomes an issue – some times people will avoid joining a business because the ‘cost’ to get started, stops them in their tracks.

The MONEY however, is never what MLM is about. Really, it’s the commitment. Will You put in the ‘time’ to learn what you need to learn, so that you can be Excellent at getting results in this industry? If not, keep your money…

We do Not want your Money!

However, with so many ‘opportunities’ in our industry today, lots of people could care less about other people; they JUST want their money. They JUST want to make a fast start bonus from them. They want them on autoship whether they are producing or not, so that they can make money….. and to us, that’s not right.

We want committed business partners to work with.

We want people who WANT to be on our team, working with us.

We did not want to make ‘money’ an issue at all; We wanted to make sure ‘company’ was not the main focus of others; we wanted to get BACK to the BASICS of network marketing and create a team who would approach MLM, ‘the right way’…

No crossline recruiting.

No Leadership team joining a new company ever 3-4 months, taking all the ‘leaders’ in their downline with them, regardless of who’s downline they are taking them out of.

No half-ass training telling people to just post links, and keep getting on calls, till they get results.

We wanted a real, PERSONAL GROWTH PLAN – that challenges each team member to become Better than they are today, so they can attract better people into their lives, and especially into their businesses; and as we grow our network, as we increase our income, as we gain MORE knowledge about what works vs what doesn’t, WE become a ‘group’ of Top Networkers.

NOW others can finally and officially join our team, and our movement…. to make The Industry of MLM, what the PEOPLE really and truly need. A place where anyone – literally – can turn FREE money into Residual Money; and create a life for themselves, that will bless others for decades, and perhaps centuries to come.
