INVEST IN YOUR LEARNING

Invest In Your Learning

Invest in your learning. How many times have you heard this before? How many times have YOU asked this question? There are lots of marketers out there who are struggling. In fact, 97% of network marketers struggle then fail. The other 3% must be doing something right. Right? When you think about it, what do the 3% do and have that the 97% don’t?

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you want to become a doctor, a teacher, maybe a lawyer? And even if your dream of becoming that nurse, scientist or astronaut changed completely, you still became something honorable and noble. But did you just “become” that? Of course not. You had to go to college or a training school of some sort. You might have even enrolled in an online program to get the credentials needed to pursue your occupation. The bottom line is that you were smart enough to know that when you intend on entering a profession, you have to invest in your learning. It’s as simple as that!

 

Don’t Take Learning Lightly

new skillsThe other day, I saw a post in a group that I’m a member of by someone who stated that he needed help marketing his business. Eager to help, I messaged him and asked him a few questions. Turns out he’s been with his company for 10 years and had one client in all that time. That’s devastating! He admitted that everyone told him that he doesn’t have what it takes to be in this industry and he himself feels it’s true because of his results. He went on say that he bought into a lead system and did nothing with it. That was the first bomb he dropped! But what was especially surprising to me was that he was intimidated by spammers who tried to get him to buy their products and join their companies. Really?  You have got to be kidding me! Bomb number 2. After finally stating that he’s been around the block and now is just looking for someone to help him without charging him, he dropped the largest bomb of all. “I’ll stick with the members of the group. They won’t charge me for helping me with my issue”. BOOM!!!

Unfortunately, this person won’t make it in network marketing. He doesn’t realize that in order to be really good at what you do, you have to shell out some money. People in groups may very well have great tips and advice but not enough to help you build your business. Every network marketer needs a strong foundation on which to build their business and if you want your business to grow, you have to make sacrifices to get the funds needed to take courses, buy products, join systems or hire a coach. This is how you invest in your learning.

 

Investing In Your Learning Is Serious Business

man with billBack to the lawyer, doctor, teacher, nurse and scientist. They want to be good at their chosen professions although many do not have the money needed to pursue them. Yes, they have to pay. It’s not free. Listening to a few people who may know something about the profession can hardly prepare them for the profession. But, do they walk away dejected? No, they beg, borrow or steal to get the money. (don’t steal, that’s just a saying!!) They get loans or financial aid. They apply for scholarships. They get part-time jobs. They find a way! As a network marketer, you have to have to find a way too! Getting the training necessary to be good at network marketing is not free. You have to pay and listening to a few people who know something about the business can hardly prepare you for the building of your own business.

Be An Action-Taker And Keep Learning

So what’s the point to all of this? Back to the question I posed earlier. What do the 3% do and have that the 97% don’t? They have drive, they have ambition and they invest in their education. They are action-takers. If you don’t have that and you’re not willing to do that, you’re not an action-taker and…you’re inviting doom!

Did you find value in this? If so please, share with others so they can understand the importance of investing in education and training to properly market their network marketing business!

      Thank you, Mervin! Yes, many people are looking to be successful but don’t want to make any kind of investment. It won’t happen any other way! 🙂

    Theresa, great points. It is so true that you don’t get anything of value for free. If you do, it won’t be valued. And, if you pay for it you are much more likely to follow through.

    Excellent blog post Theresa! You have to invest in yourself. Invest your time, blood, sweat and tears, and yes, some money.

      You’re welcome Chris! Ten years is a long time to have no results. This alone should motivate anyone to take action and invest in themselves! 🙂

    Yes you need training investing in yourself. I don’t know why people come into network marketing and people expect to make there money back in a month, be in profit in 2 months and be rich in three months. It took me almost four years to cut a profit.

      Linda, you’re right! It doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen just because someone wants it to.You have to develop yourself and your craft. 🙂
