So you’ve been in business a few months now and are not seeing the results you want. Many network marketers are or have struggled with this, myself included. Truth is, you can’t leave it up to anyone else but yourself to make sure that your business succeeds.You get excited, join a business opportunity, you don’t do as well as you thought you would, now you are either 1. frustrated and ready to give up or 2. ready to make some changes to succeed.Your response to situations make all the difference.I got into network marketing because I have always wanted to work for myself and not have to worry about clocking in everyday, dealing with people that I couldn’t stand, and ultimately not making enough money to make ends meet. With a baby on the way, and still pursuing my degree at 21, I felt that this was the time to secure my family’s financial future. However, I joined a business opportunity and was completely lost once I entered, once I signed up my sponsor left me high and dry.Reasons why I didn’t succeed:1. I had NO PLAN!- Every successful business needs a plan. Write down your goals and objectives, then take that plan into ACTION!2. I didn’t do enough research- Please take the time to know what you are selling. Know your product like the back of your hand.3. I didn’t put in enough time- Self explanatory4. I was afraid to talk to people- This one is a biggie, you can not be shy in network marketing. How are people going to know about your business, This was very hard for me to get past.No one said it would be easy, but you have to be willing to do the work. Work hard so you won’t have to later. You have to treat it like a business, not a job! In order to truly succeed create a solid plan, and figure out how you are going to execute that plan. Yes you will have set backs, those are expected, but a set back is only a set up for a comeback, as cliche as that sounds. Giving up is a waste of time and money!I hope this encouraged you all to keep going, and be persistent. Good luck to everyone, and I wish you all a prosperous 2013, God Bless!
