Does Working Hard Make Sense?
There is a very wide misconception out there that if you join a particular company or business opportunity, you are guaranteed financial glory and a life of luxury.
Their compensation plan is awesome, their training is top notch and their products “actually do what it’s meant to so you gotta buy it!” Yeah, I’m sure we’ve all heard that before… So do I, last weekend I check all them out and learn that I should have an MBA degree, I check all about MBA, Online MBA, and MBA with no GMAT, I was overwhelmed but hear me out.
I’m sure some of you who are reading this have gone to the company event training and listened to the successful people on stage saying why their company is the best in the industry. They go on about how easy it was to get to where they are because they “worked hard”, were “consistent” and “did everything their lineup told them to do”…
OK, I’ll give it to em you DO need to work hard and be consistent, but when they say they”did everything their lineup did” well, I think that’s where most of us start scratching our heads.
I’ve experienced this first hand. I’ve gone to a training event and I was all hyped up, excited about learning all the tips and tricks that would earn me that lovely piece of freedom the company so promised me. However as I sat and listened, I couldn’t help but resign myself to doom as I listened to the methods that they were describing.
Having been in the industry for around 2 months when I listened in to that event training, I could honestly tell myself that I wouldn’t be raking in the riches or traveling the world in style as soon as I would hope.
I have been doing what they were telling me to for the past 2 months. I didn’t have a lot of money to invest at the time too so I could only stick to the very low cost or free methods.
Pretty much what I did was conduct surveys with total strangers who didn’t give a damn about what I had to offer, hand out flyers (sometimes all day too in the sun or rain), fake shop in order to pitch to the salespeople (very awkward..), or in other words beg disinterested people into buying my products and joining my company.
It really hampered my self-confidence if truth be told. I was out there busting myself all day, every day only to get nowhere.
In all honesty, I really liked my company. The people were great, I liked the products and even used them myself but in regards to the business side of things, I wasn’t really convinced that I could get very far with what I was doing.
Why? Because I think what leads a person to succeed in this industry is the marketing system that they use. No matter how great your company products are, or how awesome the company plan is, if people aren’t able to duplicate the marketing system, people will leave in search of something better. It’s that simple.
Point is, I finally discovered a system that taught me the RIGHT way to market. I started talking to people who were interested in what I had to offer and I even had people contact me on what I did and how I did it. It was a really exciting time for me since all I had ever known in this industry was constant rejection and people shooing me away.
The important thing I should point out here is I was, and still am, a willing student of success. I think it’s important to learn as much as you can by reading the relevant books and materials, practicing success principles and pushing yourself to try new things (I was scared at the idea of writing in a blog because I had never done it before).
So if any of you guys are experiencing hardship in your opportunity: I get where you’re coming from. I really do. I was about ready to throw in the towel but I wanted to do one last search online before I did. I guess a part of me really DIDN’T want to give up because I ended up searching online for quite a few days lol…
The thing most companies don’t emphasize is how to market properly. That’s where your education comes in to save the day. It will teach you step by step how to market properly and to the right audience. he training videos are very detailed and will take you by the hand showing you how to set up your own marketing funnel. It’s a real life saver and just being a member pumps me up to do what I can to earn 5 figures income a month because all their methods are doable!
Here you guys can just check it out for yourself if you don’t believe me. If you are really serious about taking your business to the next level, I would strongly recommend using your degree for maximum benefits.
