Let’s start this off with a question… Have you ever been involved in a network marketing company where nobody else worked to help YOU succeed?
I sure have, and it’s hard! That is the worst and most inefficient way to run ANY business on the planet, especially in network marketing.
I mean, who tries to start up a restaurant without getting help from some other people? It would be madness if you thought you could Google stuff for half an hour and start your restaurant biz.

It’s easier to recruit people into a team atmosphere, plain and simple.
It also gives social proof to your prospect. It gives validation to others that they aren’t the only ones jumping into some “crazy” MLM idea. Many people think we’re insane doing what we do, but if a team of people can support you, that issue goes out the window.

They can help you do 3-way calls. This is the best way for a network marketer to recruit new reps into his downline. You can literally call a successful network marketer in your company to recruit your prospect for you. That almost seems unfair to everyone else not on a good team, right?
Teams can also provide you with tools and training. The more leaders that you’re involved with, the more webinars and training series they’ll make for YOU. Plus, many upline leaders like to make things like presentations and websites that you can send prospects to that will help you with the closing process.
Trust me, the NUMBER 1 thing you should look for in an
