Network Marketing: How to Make it Work for You
by Tina Rideout
How or why some people excell at Network Marketing, while others struggle is not as complicated of a question as many would think.
After researching the reasons why, I have came to the conclusion that there is a common set of personality traits that a successful person possesses.
1. Determination: I have found that individuals who have decided to become self-employed either "in the real world" or "on the internet" are a determined group. Once they become comfortable with the area they have chosen, they pursue it endlessly. The ups and downs of any business can be enough for you to throw in the towel. Being self-employed is not as easy as a task as some imagine when they first decide "I can do this"
2. Motivation: Okay, now you have convinced yourself that you can do this. In the beginning your emotions run on high speed. You advertise, build networks, and spend long hours working each day. Successful Network Marketers do not need a pat on the back every day. They assess what they have or have not accomplished. They go with the flow, they except change as a natural progression of the business.
3. Self-confidence. As changes occur successful Network Marketers assess the changes that need to be made to stay in the "pack" They are knowledge seeking individuals, who will take that "extra step" to gain the information they need to stay on top of their business. They are not afraid to seek out the professionals and ask questions.
4. People-Oriented: Being able to communicate, provide training and services to your customers. Successful Network Marketers have the ability to communicate to their customers. They have gained the knowledge, therefore they are the experts in their field. They provide the training and support their customers need to be successful. They go the "extra mile", they direct, motivate and support their customers.
So in conclusion, the reasons why some people are successful and some fail is dependent on how an individual approaches their business. The secret is in each individual. To be a successsful Network Marketer you need to assess yourself and find the power within.
