Becoming a Leader In Your Organization

If you happen to be shy and timid, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to have to work on that because leaders are not shy and/or timid. They are outgoing. They have a commanding presence. They show no fear. And if they are shy, they have learned to work around their shyness. This is something that you must learn to do.


Because the harsh reality is, people don't follow shy and timid folks. They just don't.

Remember Jamie Fox character in Spider Man 2? He was shy and timid before the accident and no one ever remembered his name. Spider Man was the first person to ever notice him that's why he became a die-hard fan. Until Spider Man forgot him the second time that is.

If you want to make money in this or any other business, you have to make it your priority that you do something as quickly as possible about your shyness.

OK, moving right along.

To establish yourself as a leader, the first thing you must do is get yourself a separate website from your company's website.

It's harder to stand out in the crowd if everybody's wearing the same uniform.

Getting your own website is easy and very inexpensive. I am not going to go into details of purchasing a website here... that information you should be able to find on your own. If you cannot, then send me a private email and I will help you out.

Now that you have a website, what do you do next?

Well, believe it or not, you are NOT going to be promoting your business opportunity.

What you will be promoting is yourself.

Find a picture of you and place it on your website. If you are married, put a picture of your spouse or you and your spouse together. Got children? Put a picture of them up there too. What about a dog, or a cat? Yeah, put them up there too. Play golf? Put a picture of you playing.

You are not going to nilly willy place picture like it's some Instagram account or anything like that.

What you are going to do is tell your story.

Yeah, believe it or not, STORIES SELL.

Telling a story about yourself is a great way for people to get to know you. And guess what? When people feel like they know you and can trust you, they are more apt to come join your team.

Tell the folks WHY you got into Network Marketing. Tell them about your hobbies. Tell them about your family or whatever else that separates you from the crowd.

Make yourself a likeable human being and not just a business website promoting a product and an opportunity.


What Leaders do that make them leaders is that they offer service to others.

What are you good at that you can offer your skills and knowledge to others that will help them get what they want?

Are you skilled at advertising on Facebook?

How about Twitter, Instagram or Linked In?

Do you understand how to create and upload video's to YouTube?

Are you exceptionally good at prospecting and recruiting?

Do you have a script that you use or a secret to memorizing scripts?

Do you find it easy to stand and talk in front of a crowd?

Do you know about Search Engineer Optimization?

Do you have knowledge of Blogs and Email Marketing?

What are you skills?

I know there is something that you can do better than most people. The thing key is, you don't even have to be super-duper great at it. Just understand it and be able to explain it to someone so that they can understand it.

Whatever it is that you are good at--THAT is what you will promote on your website.

For example... let's say you like to blog. You've been blogging for a while and have somewhat mastered the art of blogging.

"Learn How to Blog to Attract Recruits for Your Downline" could be the header for your website.

You could create a list designed to help people master blogging.

You could recommend reading material for them that you have used in the past that helped you learn or master the skill.

You could explain the best way to blog; how to create a blog; the best blogging post, etc.

Doesn't matter what you are good at, think of a way that it would benefit others and teach it on your personal website.

The key is to provide people with helpful information and then talk to them about joining your opportunity.

They will want to join because they understand that you are knowledgeable and that you will be able to help them.

I'm a Network Marketer Because I'm a Socialist

Before you go on with the anti-leftist drool let me first explain. I'm not talking about the deeply in ground false impressions of what we are meant to assume socialism is. I am talking about the selfless (self LESS) acts of true socialism. The system where we all work for the benefit of each other.

I'm not interested in what you do with the money you make, what you buy, what you own, where you live, nor am I interested in your nationality, sexuality, race, religion or anything else that makes you the individual you are. All these things have nothing to do with what I refer to as Socialism.

Lets take a look at a Traditional Capitalist Business Model
Traditional large corporations typically have a pyramid structure. A CEO at the top, Board of Directors under them, Managers who answer to the Directors and so on down to the checkout operator who bags your groceries or the kid who sweeps the floor after school. Only ONE person has the opportunity to take on that top position should the CEO choose to leave, retire or if they die.

You may ask, but what about the opportunity for someone to start their own business and become their own CEO? Sure that is an option. But even if you have the funds to start a company you are still at the mercy of a finite resource. The theory of infinite capital growth from natural resources is a myth.

And now a look at Network Marketing
If you are reading this you either know the benefits of Network Marketing or you are studying the subject before becoming involved in it. Either way the benefits - economically, socially, environmentally & sustainably are the same.

You have the ability to reach the top level in the company as much as anyone else. The more "Representative CEOs" in a Network Marketing Company the better.

You are not competing for top level positions, you are encouraged and supported in the process of reaching those high levels.

The development and expansion from the company level is sustainable from both an environmental & economic perspective.

Assisting people to earn their living through channels that support each other rather than competing is fairer from the point of view of social equality.

If you have been Network Marketing for some time you will by now know that when YOU help others make money you in turn will also make money. Like it or not this is how Socialism works - Working for the benefit of everyone and by doing so for the benefit of yourself.

Those approaching Network Marketing from the perspective of "What's in it for me" are typically the ones who eventually fail. On the other hand those who build their business by focusing on helping others make money are typically the ones who succeed.
