I think one of my favorite quotes is by Jack Canfield, and is "Success leaves clues." If you want to have success, go find it. There are people who have paved the way. There are people in our communities, in our social circles, in our neighborhoods who have had success. Go talk with them. Go hang around them. Spend time with people you want to be like because you are who you spend your time with. If you want to be positive, hang around positive people. If you want to earn six figures or seven figures, start hanging around people who make six and seven figures. If you want to build a big team or have a larger customer base...hang out with people who have already done that. They are leaving clues everywhere they go! You just need to be willing to find them.
Favorite word of advice:
Be coachable! What I mean by that, is listen to your leaders. They know the way and can support you to get what you want. I joined pawTree and had absolutely zero (I mean ZERO) sales experience or network marketing experience. I told myself I'd give it a year. For one year, I'd do what ever was asked of me, no matter how uncomfortable it made me.
I remember taking my dog Molly on a walk and practicing what I was going to say to my first phone call/prospect. Her name was Monique. I rehearsed what I'd say over and over again...because I was told, make a list, and start calling and inviting.
I was petrified to make that call, but I had committed to one year...and I HAD to listen to my mentor because remember, I didn't have a clue what else to do! This is what she said to do, so I did it.
Monique was my first customer! She was gracious enough to order and supported me in my new business. I had a lot of bumps along the way. Not all my sales came as easy as Monique, but they came none the less because I STUCK WITH IT. The sales do come easier now, because the seeds we planted for the past five years, Because of pawTree,
