Get LEADS On Autopilot!

1. Passing negative downline




I don’t care if you had a really bad day or your downline is your best friend

since junior high. When people join a business, they don’t join an opportunity,

they join YOU! It means they believe in you and see you as some kind of leader.

If you pass negative down, they will lose their confidence in you and your

business will be destroyed when they do the same to THEIR downline.

When you have negative or challenges, TAKE IT UPLINE. Never down.

2. Spending more than you can sustain

If you are a leader with a large group of downline in different states around

the country, you could exhaust yourself doing meetings and rallies everywhere.

You may be making 5 figures, but always be careful.

Once, there is this leader who had people in another state asking him to do a

rally in their town. He rented this hotel for a few thousand dollars. His people

promised that they will bring more than 50 new prospects. But when the actual

day came, only 5 turned up and only 1 signed up. The trip was a total disaster

and cost him a bomb!

Another big mistake is spending all the money you earned on new cars and

houses. But what happens if your network is not stable? There may be many

leaders under your team but you will never know what happens the next day.

Leaders can join other companies, they might get sick or even die! Then how are

you going to pay for your new house, car or that new yacht you bought? Never

spend too much. Always save for a rainy day.

3. Would You Leave Your Baby at home alone?

Of course not. The funny thing is, new downlines are like newborn babies!

Hard to imagine, huh? I am not trying to insult anyone here, but there is a high

dropout rate for newcomers and it is scary. Why does this happen?

A newborn baby if not taken care of will be a target of germs (negative

energy, rejection, feeling emotionally down in the business), kidnapping

(head-hunted by other companies without armed with the right information), and

will cry a lot (they will whine to the upline when problems come). I have seen

corporate businessmen whine like little children when they didn’t get their

commission on time or the admin never replied their e-mails or even when their

friends said something negative.

Downlines require your attention especially in the first few months where

they are most vulnerable.

4. I won’t give up versus the definition of insanity

It is very important NOT TO GIVE UP. But on the other hand, what are they

doing about it? The definition of insanity is DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER


There are Network Marketers who just refuse to make a change in their lives

to get to their goals. They change too slowly and keep doing the same things

over and over again. If I didn’t have a conscience, I can keep on telling him,

“Don’t worry, you are doing good. Don’t pressure yourself. You are getting

there, don’t give up and keep on keeping on…”in an effort to keep the numbers up

in my organization, or I could tell him the truth and say, “Look, you’re not

making money here, either you shape up or shape out. We have no room in our team

for people not willing to change.” Having numbers means squat if your people are

not making money and are not growing.

5. If I scratch your back, will you scratch mine?

What if your colleague or associate who is in another   MLM  asks you to join

them? There are times when people get so desperate for business, they go to

other opportunity meetings of other companies in an attempt to recruit new

blood. This is a good way to expand your network, but… most people will pitch

their opportunity to you and will only oblige you mostly in an attempt to gain

your friendship and recruit you instead.

The worst thing that can happen is spending a lot of money on joining fees of

other companies and not getting a single one of them in yours.

You may scratch someone else’s back, but they will not necessarily scratch

yours. Don’t play tug-of-war.

6. Placing people under people in an effort to motivate

Some people make promises to other people in order to get them to join. They

might say something along the lines of, “If you join under my team, I will build

one leg or one group for you!” or they will even place people that they

personally recruit under their lazy downline in an effort to motivate them!

This kind of action not only breeds laziness and dependency, it even slows

down their progress! Their other downlines under their group will also expect

them to place people under them duplicating a hollow organization.

Even if you are in a binary or a matrix, certain expectations should be

communicated clearly to downline that spillover will only occur if they meet

certain conditions and not let them wait for their uplines for spill over.

7. Not keeping the business simple

Seasoned networkers might be in  MLM  for a long time and may even memorize the

compensation plan much better than the company themselves!

You may understand the plan but a new prospect might get too confused if you

give them information overload!

Normally, for a new distributor, things must be kept so simple for them that

they will believe that anybody can do this business! If you bog them down with

so many details, they will sit down and think too much.

Too much analysis will lead to paralysis of the mind.

Remember: A downline’s effectiveness is only half of yours. If what you are

doing can not be easily duplicated, it does worse down the downline.

8. Trying to turn ducks into eagles

What do ducks do? They quack.

What do eagles do? They soar.

What happens when you try to make a duck soar? They fall flat on the ground

and they quack louder!

Sad to say, not all downline are like eagles. We wish they are but many

people spend too much time with ducks and try to turn them into eagles. They

quack too much and everyone becomes ducks in the end (like quaking about the

problems in the company, spreading negative all around).

Personally, I would rather have eagles in my team so all of us can soar


9. No half way (plane taking off)

There is no such thing earning a mediocre income in network marketing or  MLM .

If someone says, I would be happy to earn a few hundred bucks a month, they

will most likely give half hearted effort. They don’t achieve enough momentum to

get to ANY tangible income. You either go all the way, or no way at all.

Allow me to illustrate.

If a plane takes off, it needs a certain momentum to take off. Lets say if we

need about 150 miles per hour to take off, you must exceed that speed or else we

are not flying anywhere. It won’t take off at 140, 145 or even 149!

Just like in network marketing, only by producing top-notch effort, will

outstanding results (often better than their expectation) occur.

10. No such thing as total retirement

Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as total retirement in

network marketing.

If you stop building at the deepest levels of your organization, they might

start dying off one by one. The attrition will follow its way up until even your

leaders might quit themselves (out of frustration or loss of income) and you

will be the only one left.

Even people who have built groups of thousands can lose them overnight if

they are not careful. Unstable companies or change of management can happen but

with sound leadership, your people will follow you no matter which company you

go to. Just make sure you take care of your leaders and especially all your new

people. You can’t just leave the fate of your babies to your other slightly

older babies.

Your  MLM  business is your business and your responsibility to get your group
