First and foremost, we'd like to give our sincerest thanks to our mentor and MLSP sponsor, Adam Chandler. Our success is a direct result of the guidance and training we have received from him.
Prior to joining MLSP, we had been involved in Network Marketing for just over a year. Our story was very typical of most Network Marketers, having been rejected by most of our family and friends.
Having hit a brick wall with our business, we knew that we would have to learn some new skills in order to be successful. We took on the motto that "We will either find a way, or we will make a way."
So, over the course of about 6 months, we bought several thousands of dollars worth of training programs.
They were all very good and we learned a lot from them, but they all seemed to focus on strategies that required us to chase after prospects…whether it was cold market prospecting, prospecting professionals, social media recruiting, etc.
And while we were experiencing some success with those strategies, it just wasn't the way we wanted to build our business or live our lives – always having to hunt for new prospects, constantly evaluating everyone in our minds as we talk to them, trying to find just the right moment to 'pop the question' and fit it into the conversation…
We joined Network Marketing so that it could support the lifestyle that we wanted to live, but instead, the exact opposite was happening…we were living a lifestyle we didn't want to live in order to support our Network Marketing business.
We knew that there must be a better way – a more leveraged way – to build our business.
And that's when, late one night in a desperate search for a solution, we decided to fill out the contact form on Adam Chandler's blog. We learned about how he had built his business online without having to chase after prospects, and we wanted to learn how to build our business the same way.
After speaking with Adam, we decided to join him in MLSP. We still didn't really understand what MLSP was or what it did. All we knew was that if he was doing it, we wanted to do it too.
Prior to joining MLSP, we had never built a website or written a blog, we had never used Twitter or Instagram to any meaningful extent, never uploaded a video to YouTube, and we had certainly never run paid advertising on the internet.
But within a few short months, we had absorbed every bit of training on those subjects and more within MLSP. While we don't regret the thousands of dollars we spent on training before we joined MLSP, we now realize the incredible value that is held within the MLSP training library.
In the end, we decided to focus on three things – our blog, Twitter, and Instagram. And then we took massive action.
Whenever we had any kind of new success (whether it was generating 1 lead a day, generating 5 leads a day, getting our first phone number, getting our first sign-up, etc), we made a point to always look for ways to improve upon what we had accomplished while doing our best to avoid 'shiny object syndrome', always staying focused on our blog, Twitter, and Instagram.
As Bruce Lee once said, "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."
If there is only one thing we could tell you about how to be successful in this business, it would be this…that there is no more effective way of achieving a high level of success than to connect with the people who are getting the results that you want in your business and to network with them.
And when you network with leaders, what will happen is that you will grow into a leader. Because that's what leaders do – they create other leaders.
And once you become a leader, that is when your business will gain major momentum and you will see a huge flow of leads, sales, and sign-ups into your business. But you need to become a leader first.
Because while it's true that people join people (not companies)…it's even more true that people don't join desperate, pitchy, salesy people…they join leaders.
The fact that we are able to be recognized with this honor is a direct reflection of the culture of leadership that is deliberately and actively cultivated within MLSP. And when you embrace that culture and work to contribute to it, great things will start to happen!
So to Brian, Norbert, Todd, and the entire MLSP team we want to say thank you. Because while the tools, resources, and training offered by MLSP are amazing, it's this community that is truly one of a kind.
