Lots of people in our industry of network marketing, have turned to ‘gurus’ who are quite frankly, taking advantage of people. They are paying money for information they could have gotten for Free – this is not to suggest that they are not also offering solid advice :: but even most of that is available, for Free.
People tend to think that, if they pay for it – it’ll be more valuable. I guess that’s why Napster had to change their business model; OH wait – people were quite ok with FREE music – it was the Record Industry, the ones losing money on what they were selling, who objected to the idea.
The “Gurus” charging tons of money for information – are the Record Industry at this moment – this the beginning really, of Internet Marketing.
11 years ago, when I entered the Network Marketing arena, I turned to the Internet to find ‘leads’ almost right away. I had a comfort with talking to people, but used what I learned at the Training Meetings, to sort people online for my business :: BUT something was still missing.
Enter, The Greatest Networker, an awesome FREE e-book from John Milton Fogg. I was having upline issues at the time. The guy who introduced me, disappeared; the guy who sponsored him stepped in, but I wasn’t very coachable. I made excuses “He’s not in California, I’m here building alone, I don’t know the right people ….”
Then I read this book. I then realized, it was up to ME to become BETTER, not up to my Upline to be anything other than he had been; an Example of what to do, to make money in this industry.
If you have not read this book yet, and you are struggling with your business – especially if you’re paying LOTS of money to learn “how to do this” – stop doing that — read the book, OR listen to the audios — it will change everything about your business, And your life.
