Having a Hard Time Helping Your Team be Successful?

Having a Hard Time Helping Your Team be Successful?This is a problem that EVERY Network Marketer deals with as their team grows.

Sometimes I feel guilty when my team members aren’t successful. I’ve tried to develop more training, schedule more meetings, and come up with more tools to help them get going and make money, and to achieve the success they tell me they want.

But no matter what I do for them, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t make any difference how much I try to help my team; those who are getting results will continue to do so, while those who aren’t will generally stay where they are.

The only thing you can do that will truly help your MLM business and your team members is to lead by example. Just do the things that you need to personally do on a daily basis to build your business – Advertising, Prospecting, Follow-up, and New Distributor orientation. Spend your time one-on-one with your producers, and that’s it.  Work with everyone else in groups.

Like Jim Rohn said, you have to accept the people in your business for what they are. You can’t ask a ten percenter to become a 90 percenter. Just as it is a sorting game to find new distributors, it is also a sorting game to find the distributors that will work and be successful once you sponsor them into your team.

The sad truth is that 90% of those who start a Network Marketing business aren’t really serious about becoming self-employed. They are just looking to “buy some hope”, so they can quiet the voices of discontent in their heads. Soon enough they will come up with an excuse why this business is not for them and they’ll quit. There’s nothing you can do about it, so don’t spend your time and energy trying to change it.

Build YOUR business. Lead by example, and the right ones (the few), will follow you. Put your blinders on to everything and everyone else. Your job is to empower others and to help them be successful in their home business – not to do the business for them. So spend your time bringing in many people into your business. If you’re dealing with thousands of people on your team, you won’t even notice the whiners and quitters.

As I’m sure you’ve heard many times, SWSWSW – Some will, some won’t… so what – Next! This applies to your team members as well as to your potential recruits. Of course we want them to be successful.  You have a great opportunity to offer them. If they won’t take advantage of that… and 95% of them won’t… it’s not your job to force them.  Just love and accept them for where they are at, and be there when they’re ready to step up.

EXPECT Success!

p.s.  Everyone wants to be where people are having fun, so make your team environment feel happy and festive.  Find reasons to celebrate together, such as birthdays, birth of a baby or grandchild, moving into a new house, etc., and having small parties to celebrate these events.  The more your team feels part of a family, the longer they’ll stay.

  1. This is what I am struggling with right now. I had 10 people in my downline and one of my downline got a recruit. I have since had 4 of them either stop selling, or have a delinquent account and not pay their bill and become inactive. Two of them placed regular orders and then out of the blue just stopped. Also, every district meeting we have I invite them to go with me. Only twice have I had someone show up. It’s very frustrating and hard to feel like you are succeeding as a leader.

  2. You are right on, Lynn! I know I have beat myself up because I just wasn’t doing enough, because my team wasn’t successful. But now “I KNOW” it not my fault. Looking for those that want to build a relationship. Thanks for the great insight!
