How to Build a Successful Home Base Business (MLM) and Make a Six-Figure Income

When you are involved with MLM and you want to work from home there are a few things you must know and take into consideration to be successful.

#1 Passion. –
There are many MLM’s out there, just don’t get involved to get involved because people are telling you, ‘You can make a whole **** load of money!”
What makes you feel good? If you are passionate about the products you are standing in front of, you can make serious money! There are many MLM’s out there, so be choosy on which one is right for you. Do your research!

#2 Know your Products and how to market them. –
You don’t have to over analyze, you just need to understand:
A. The product.
B. Take advantage of learning while you are earning! Go out and shadow the SL’s.
C. Always remember, there is nothing wrong with telling your prospects you don’t know the answer to their question. The solution is not to answer their question just to answer it, but give them the right answer, “That’s a great question! I am not sure of the answer, let me look into that and get back to you, I want to make sure you get the correct answer.” Your prospects will appreciate your honesty and it shows you are not a know-it-all!
D. MLM is a combination of Street Smart and Book Smart. For me, I shadowed all the SL’s that would allow me to tag along with them, listen to their calls (3ways) and go to trainings and meetings. I read what they recommended. The more you hear the same thing over and over again, the more you will succeed… (Be a part of the process.) Reputation is the key!

Follow the Successful Leaders (SL) step by step and do NOT TRY to REINVENT THE WHEEL! Your way is not the successful way, no matter what our backgrounds are and no matter what MLM, if any, we were previously in, each MLM has a proven system. Just follow the SL and be willing to ‘Fail Your Way To The Top’.
(So many times, including myself at the beginning, we think our way is better. Then, after doing it our way, we are not getting the results and we are asking why (or) what is mostly said, “this doesn’t work.”
I’m here to tell you, IT WORKS!
(Nothing wrong with trying it your way…but don’t take too long to figure out it isn’t working. STOP and follow the SUCCESSFUL LEADERS. (SL))

#3 Make a List and get ready for rejection. –
Make a list of everyone you know and allow your sponsor, (SL) to go over the list with you and start making contacts.

(If you were opening any kind of business outside your home, you would tell everyone about it and invite them to your Grand Opening, correct? Same thing, but again there is a different approach.)
Learn how to launch your MLM business listening to the SL’s.
The reason I said get ready for rejection is because your family and friends that you think will support you and purchase from you, will be the worst people you deal with! Just the way it is and it is OK! Accept this right off the bat and you will shield yourself a lot of pain and disappointment. (not always, but 99%)…

*Understands, rejection is good, the more no’s you get the more successful you will be.

So again, allow your SL’s to help you work your list.

#4 Use your 3rd Party Tools –
Use the tools to give the message about your product(s). Catalogs, Brochures, DVD’s, CD’s, web site, business overview calls, etc. You are not the message, you are the messenger! Especially if you are looking to build a team, you will want to show everyone how easy it is to share with others so they will say they can do it as well.
(For me, I always said that from the first word of hello, I am training and showing my prospects how easy it is to do this business.)

#5 Attend the meetings and trainings in your area. –
Attach yourself with the doers and SL. You will find them at the trainings and meetings. You are learning something new and exciting. Just like anything else, you need to surround yourself with likeminded people that are in your industry. No matter how many meetings and trainings you have been too, keep going, even if you don’t have any guest or new associates! KEEP GOING and apply what you are learning.
Sit in the front. (This way you are never disrupted). Now you (and your guests, new associates), will not be affected with what is going on in the room behind you, you are plugged into the meetings and trainings!
Be like a sponge and take notes!

#6 Do your exposures –
Do your exposures the way the system is telling you to do them. If you are suppose to do 2 exposures a day, do them and don’t let a day go by without doing them.
(Jeff Olson, “It is easy to do and it is easy not to do.”)

#7 Personal Development –
Read and/or listen to personal development everyday. 10 Pages a day will change your life! Surround yourself with those more successful then you are and don’t listen to the nay-sayers!

#8 Work-Out Partner –
As long as you are all feeding each other with positive energy. You will want someone(s) who you can depend on for accountability, motivation and action, remember, your workout partner is counting on you too!
Be there for one another and together work on the solutions, don’t dwell on the problems!

And be patient! Nothing was built over night and it takes time. If you are in need for instant cash so your bills can get paid you need a job and for right now, allow this to be your plan “B”. If you need this to be your main stream of income, then double/triple your activity and really be a SPONGE and go do the do everyday!

#9 Working from home takes a lot of discipline –
Only because it is so easy to get caught up in the house chores or just being in the home setting. You don’t have a clock to punch in and out, so your workday just might disappear before you realize that you didn’t accomplish the things you needed to do that day for your business. Here are my suggestion!
A. Treat your home base business like a business you invested $100,000.00 in!
B. Wake up every morning as if you were leaving to go to work. Set your alarm clock, take a shower and get dressed as if you where going to an office. (You never know when you might have to run out and meet a prospect that you just got off the phone with and now you can just grab your keys and go). Go to your work area and work as if you were in an office. Take your breaks and lunch as if you would in an office.
C. Take your business very seriously and ignore your surroundings as home.

I wish you all the great success! Watch for my tele-seminar coming soon!
