Notable Quotes:

  • Just because our friend or family member joined that particular company or opportunity doesn't really make it the right one for us necessarily.
  • Selecting the right opportunity for you is a very important decision. And it could very well change the entire trajectory of the future of you and your family.
  • A baseline investigation will basically tell you if the company is a good solid reliable company versus a “here today gone tomorrow type” company.
  • Building a network marketing career is simple, but it is not easy, my friend, it takes effort. It takes hard work. And therefore, you really want to make sure that you are investing your time and effort with the right company.
  • Obviously, we can't and nor should we believe everything we read online, absolutely not. But if you're seeing more bad comments or bad reviews than good, that's probably a huge red flag. 
  • To get this information about the financials, are they well funded? Are they in debt, you can always ask the person who's presenting the company to you. But if they don't have them, ask their support team.
  • Being with a network marketing company whose sales are growing is usually way easier and a heck of a lot more fun than being with a company whose said sales are flat.
  • To have that long-term success, you must have consumers who are consistently purchasing your products and services.
  • For me, the money part was more of a motivator. But I can promise you as your team builds, recognition will be something that people on your team will strive for and they will go the extra mile to achieve.
  • You can love the products. But do they really offer a solution for the masses? Are they easy to talk about? Are they easy to share? And if your answer is an absolute Yes, then this will make your job a lot easier.
  • As with all aspects of building any business whether it's a network marketing business or not, consistency is always the key.
  • The only way you will not have success in network marketing or quite frankly any other area in your life is if you don't put in the effort, or you quit.
  • Persistence beats resistance.
