Matt Morris once said; Becoming a millionaire means your dreams need to be bigger than their no. We find this to be such a powerful statement — and so TRUE. And, it’s something to keep in mind for anyone building a network marketing business who is seeking that millionaire level.
In this post, we’re going to share with you a few things that we believe everyone needs when building a business. Whether it be customers or social marketers/distributors — these things will apply.
When we were inducted into the Million Dollar Hall of Fame we were overcome with a variety of emotions. In some ways it felt so surreal but then it felt like heck yea we did!, because … we worked HARD to get here. It was a decade of ups and downs, ebbs and flows, doubt and persistence …ALL of it! And we wouldn’t change it for anything.
Breakdowns to Breakthroughs.
Although we’re still fired up about this achievement, what fires us up even more is seeing others on their journey to chasing their BIG dreams. It’s about what happens when no one is looking and climbing into the trenches, when walking away would be so much easier, right? We love seeing others win and our journey has always been our commitment to others; our teams, our customers, and our mentors.
Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
It took us more than a decade to get here — including the 2 years it took Sarah to even introduce the products or opportunity to anyone. Being afraid of what others ‘might’ think and being unsure in the ability to present it ‘perfectly’ had her STUCK. Despite what felt like a strong ‘why’ and an incredible work ethic … it was as though she was frozen aka, scared.
But then something changed … and the rest is history.
We are now committed to helping others achieve their goals and dreams in whatever shape and size they come in! So, let’s get started with the 3 things we’ve done and have continued to do throughout our journey and hope you will implement them into your business building journey.
Know and Understand that it’s Going to Take Time
In the beginning of your journey or, restarting your business please understand that it will require time from you more so, than later on. Consider this dedication to time your planting season. You HAVE to plant the seeds to get to the harvest stage (and we promise it’s worth it). One of our suggestions is to set yourself a schedule that becomes non-negotiable. For those of you with families … keep them in the loop. The more your family or support circles are involved with understanding your WHY and reason for the time commitments, the better it will be for you.
It’s often in this beginning stage that you will be tempted to quit. It can (and probably will) feel like you’re doing a ton of work with little to no results …. BUT we want to encourage you to keep going because, you deserve it.
Know and understand that it’s going to take work
Attaining a millionaire type status in the network marketing or direct sales industry … takes WORK. Similar to the note above regarding the time commitments, it’s also going to require you to stretch your comfort zone, staying consistent and being all in.
Please note: when we mentioning ‘putting in the work’, this means productive time on both your business and yourself.
Too often, especially for those building businesses on social media, work can be confused with getting caught in the scroll, not being intentional with content or engagement, etc. Be intentional with your time and avoid the time sucker activities. Make a decision to talk to more people — YOU have your hands on something that can change another persons’ life — don’t be selfish with it!
know and understand that it going to require you to grow
If your goals are to become a millionaire in network marketing or direct sales … it is going to take a commitment to your growth. This growth will be both personally and professionally. One of the main things we realized a few years in was that we needed to learn from those who came before us. We needed to seek out mentorship and more than anything work on who we were as people.
As a result, we have become better professionals, better parents, better friends and better partners.
Working on bettering yourself is ALWAYS a good idea.
It’s in you and we can’t wait to see your results and learn more about your story. Your voice and story matter and there are people out there counting on you to share them!
