Do You Have to Flash MLM Checks to be Successful

Do you have to flash checks to be Successful?

I just visited another new community website for network marketers. It's designed, they explain, to help you build your business. To encourage members to buy the programs of the site owner(s), they post the typical income testimonials from people who have "achieved financial independence when all else has failed."

Why use income testimonials (including attained 'financial freedom') to sell others, if those stories are really "not typical" and "not representative" and if the sellers of the business programs "have no idea how well you will do?"

Income statements have never done anything for me. I didn't see one when I joined my first company and in over 14 years, have never asked anyone upline from me what they are making.

Nor have I ever "flashed a check."

I didn't need anyone to show me a check to see the value in rolling up my sleeves and going to work in a Network Marketing business. I understood that it wasn't going to happen overnight, and that understanding probably was due to the fact that I entered into Network Marketing by taking a business approach.

I sought out material to study and read. I wanted to master the business skills of building the business and that ultimately led me to the relationship skills. That's where I have spent all of my time ever since.

Keep your flashy cars, homes, vacations and the like. Give me credit for being able to figure out a viable opportunity without the flash and hype.

I would sign up ten times over with someone who looked me in the eyes, explained what it was going to take, both the good and the bad, and committed to work beside me. The person who flashes the check won't sign me up.

And, as was stated above, funny how when you say "Okay, I see the money, now show me the way to get there."

That's when the "oh it's easy, just talk to your friends and family." Or, "You only need a few people." lines show up.

The reality of finding those few people really means sorting through hundreds and thousands in most cases.

For me, the big money, free time of MLM is appealing enough that I am willing to sort through those numbers. But, I better know it going in!

EXPECT Success!
