Below you will see a very well thought out post from Josh Zwagil, Founder of MyDailyChoice.
The reason I wanted to highlight his awesome post is because I shot a quick video about the same subject on earlier in the day!
No, it wasn’t planned, and yes, I have the time stamp to prove I filmed my video without knowing he was going to write his. 😉
The point is, however, in order for something to last and people to trust you, you must be willing to stick out the good, bad and ugly.
When you chase the magic bullet, you forget how to shoot!
Over the last 10 years, I’ve watched the same thing occur time and time again in the MLM industry. Leaders jump from company to company to be in on the “ground floor” of a shiny new deal. It’s shocking how some individuals will walk away from everything they have worked so hard to build to join something new and unproven.
Here are the common signs that you’re an MLM hopper:
- You have been in multiple MLMs in the past 12 months.
- You have the same problems in every MLM you go to.
- You are excited for the first few months and then you easily lose interest in your company
- You are always looking for a new opportunity instead of focused on your current opportunity
- You are always discouraged in every company you go to
- You are easily recruitable
If this is you, don’t worry…there is hope for you.
Why do people MLM hop?
I believe that most people join MLMs with big dreams and goals that they want to achieve.
When they realize that it takes consistency, hard work, personal development, and an unshakable mindset to get there – they look for another opportunity instead of looking within.
Because let’s be honest for a moment; it’s easier to blame a company for your lack of success, then to dig deep to get to the next level.
If you are able to blame the company, then the responsibility is off your shoulders and you can do the same thing in every deal you go to. Join, get excited, lose interest, blame the company, and off to the next one.
Rinse and repeat.
My best advice would be to never stop learning, growing, working on yourself, and investing time in leadership.
There are many things to look for when joining a company such as products, culture, systems, stable company, corporate team, reputation for paying commissions and shipping products on time, timing, etc…But….you can be successful with any company you join, the company isn’t always the answer.
The company is the vehicle, and you are the driver. It always starts with you making a commitment to yourself.
No matter what others are doing, if you are determined to win, you must understand what it takes to market effectively online.
I love helping people get connected to products they actually USE, LOVE and NEED.
That’s why I do what I do. The question I have for you is, “Why do you do what you do?”
