Nature can be a good teacher for any entrepreneur, especially if you are in the network marketing business. One of the lessons nature teaches us, is about taking a risk. In order for the monkey’s to be able to get the fruit, evolution programmed them to have to go out on a limb.
Things are not much different in our network marketing business. In our case however there is a difference in just going out on a limb and taking an educated and calculated risk. Risk is the variable that separates the strong from the weak. If you want to step up and be noticed, if you want to take the path to network marketing success and away from mediocrity, you have to take risks.
Several of today’s top money earners in our network marketing business had to “go out on a limb” and take a risk when the old way of network marketing training was no longer working. They chose to take a different path and risk losing mediocrity to achieve new success.
Of course they were told it would not work. They were told that they can’t use the internet to develop automated systems to bring highly qualified network marketing leads to you. You can’t do presentations on CD’s and videos and make them do the work for you. You can’t recruit using emails, auto responders and turbo dialers. They were told that they have to continue to make their list and hound and harass all of their friends. But by taking clever and calculated risks they prevailed.
The top MLM leaders today are and were the ones who were willing to take calculated risks. These are the front runners that by going out on a limb, learned to harness the power of the internet, and they can teach you how to do the same. Their way is how you need to invest your future for your network marketing business.
When we were young and full of vigor it was common to take a chance and swing for the fences. In our earlier network marketing business it was pretty common to say “what the heck” I’ll go out on a limb and go for it. Then, we did not have the internet to be able to hedge our bets or leverage our risk through research. Today we do have the internet to guide us with our decisions (through research) and in this economy we need to make money more than ever.
There are some great new network marketing companies out there who did their research and went out on a limb to create some state of the art systems, state of the art products and services. If you are searching for the path to network marketing success and not wanting to settle for mediocrity, then you are going to have to find one of these outstanding companies who took a risk and dared to be different. A company dedicated to your network marketing success by providing all of the network marketing training and tools for you to prosper. What risk is there in settling for just “another me too product?” Another juice, another weight loss pill or shake, another energy product, another lotion, potion or cream? Better yet what is your reward? Boring!
Think about what Larry Page and Sergey Brin did with google. They were willing to go out on a limb and take huge risks when they had no money. Now that they have all this money they do not have to take risks anymore. That is called leverage. They were smart and were very calculating in their risk, it paid off for them and it can pay off for you if you pay attention.
In your network marketing business you need to asses the risks just like google, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Microsoft etc. do their risk assessment. You need to at least know a little something about what it is that you are getting into. Usually when the risk bug reaches up and bites you it is because you are in unfamiliar territory and don’t even know what questions to ask. If you don’t know anything about what it is that you are going to be marketing, you won’t know where the trap doors are that can take you to sudden and sure failure. You won’t even know if you are, or are not getting the proper network marketing training for your opportunity.
Network marketing opportunity is about eliminating risk or at least most of it. Take a lesson from Sir Richard Branson,(of Virgin fame) one of the most brash and ardent risk takers of our time. Branson of course in his ascension to multi-billionaire status had some the most colossal busts of all time. But he did it with calculating precision. The first thing in taking risk in business is “Always protect against the worst inevitability.” Don’t make being wrong have you end up living in a car. Never risk your main business for the sake of a new venture. In other words each business should be it’s own business.
In your network marketing success it is common place today to have multiple streams of income pouring in. But you should never go out on a limb and put each of your streams at risk with the other. If one fails they all fail. Each one of your streams of income has to have its own blood flow to survive quirks or trends in the industry or economy.
If you are willing to go out on a limb, go out on a limb that has already been traveled on. Taking a risk doesn’t mean re-inventing the wheel. Taking a risk simply means having the courage (and leverage) to stare down mediocrity and dare to be great with your network marketing success.
Taking a calculated risk by venturing out into the world of multiple streams of income requires specific network marketing training. Empowering you and your team with automation can have you reaping in huge rewards in record time. It always has and always will entail a lot of work. But soon you will have your network marketing training, recruiting, and future stream lined for success. Where I hope to meet you soon, at the T O P (Total Ongoing Prosperity)
