Become The Sponsor You Never Had . . .

Become The Sponsor You Never Had . . .

As Network Marketers, most of us have searched and searched for a simple yet effective way to "Clone" ourselves; knowing that if we could overcome the duplication problem we would reach the levels of success we ALL dream about in this business.

The problem is that 95% of the people in a MLM business usually fail. The inability to duplicate, I believe, has a lot to do with it. Let’s say the 95% failure rate is accurate for a minute... I’m not the best at math, but that would mean that 5% of the people in this business are successful and some probably wildly successful? It’s also likely that most of us are recruited into a program by someone in the 95% category.

Now for those of us that want to join the ranks of the 5%, it’s our job to sift through as many prospects as we can until we find other 5%’ers like us; people who want to work hard and build a long term residual income business.

The problem for me was I had to figure out how to do this while I kept my full time job. My family needed health insurance and while I can’t stand my current job, it does provide us with needed things such as insurance and helps pay a few bills.

The solution for me was to build a system that sorted and sifted for me while I was working at my full time job. The great part about it (and honestly shocking too) is that it worked like crazy and my team started to explode. It literally felt like I hit the JACKPOT at a casino or something. With one big difference though... I get paid every month and it keeps growing and growing with each passing month :-) You can find out more about this FREE Marketing & Training System by clicking this link:  http://LloydDobson.com

For now, lets talk more about the solution. It’s simple actually...You need to "Become The Sponsor You Never Had" (as I like to call it) and become a leader for others to follow. That’s it... it really is THAT simple! Become the pro in this industry by providing value. Everyone wants to become successful . . .show them how by using the system called NetDivvy and you can find out more here: http://LloydDobson.com

Do you think you’re up for it? I didn’t think I was when I first started...But I did know one thing... If I didn’t step up to the plate right then and give it a shot, when would I? Tomorrow? Next week? Maybe Never...

Would I step up to the plate "after" I became successful (never works that way) or would I step up right then and start leading? It was at that point that I made the strengthening decision to take charge of my
life and start branding myself as a leader in this business and it was the best decision I have ever made!

Now, before you take the same plunge, the one thing you must "Get" first is that it all starts from within you... The strengthening decision to become a leader and really go for it is the first step and one you must take seriously and follow through on. That really is the true secret to this whole crazy "success" thing.

By stepping up and becoming the sponsor you never had, you will end up in the 5% ranks much sooner, opposed to later or never. And just to be clear... when I say "Become The Sponsor You Never Had" I’m mainly referring to a mindset or philosophy... The philosophy of wanting more from life and knowing that helping people and making a difference is what’s it’s really all about.

That mental shift is all I needed in order to help my team expand and duplicate. This same mental shift may be all you need to take your business to the next level. Only you will know. Once I stopped thinking about "making money" and started thinking about how to help others make money is when I started to make money. (Read that sentence slowly one more time)

My confidence level seemed to skyrocket too after I stopped focusing on how "I" could make money. I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but if you’re in a tight spot right now and needing money is your main motivation for getting involved in network marketing... your chances of attaining success will be severely hindered.

Hindered, yes. Impossible, no. Join my team on "NetDivvy" to begin branding yourself into a leader and start succeeding  It’s time to stop following the 95%’ers around and it’s time for YOU to start
leading them!  Let’s get to work... GO HERE NOW: http://LloydDobson.com

Go out and make it a great day!

Hi Lloyd, I like your thought about becoming the sponsor you never had. And, as you mention, one key to success is to add value to other people's lives - in this business, it's not all about you, and some people still haven't figured out that helping others succeed is really what it's all about. Thanks for sharing! Christine

Alan said...

Interesting post, Lloyd - I had not thought about how once I developed the mindset of a leader I became one! Also, as you say, it's about seeking to satisfy the needs of others, not my own needs!
Thanks - I shall look forward to reading more of your posts.

Lloyd, Great post! You are so right when you say "once you stop thinking about making money, and start thinking about helping others make money". This is when everything started to change for me! Stepping out of my comfort zone, stepping up and becoming an alpha leader. That is the key! Thanks for the very inspiring post! Joseph McDevitt

Great post Lloyd

I love your thoughts and how you needed to think and move forward in your life to become successful. You are so very right about how your focus needs to be on creating Value to other instead of making money. I have learned from experience. Thank you for sharing your great lessons. I look forward to your next post.

Couldn't agree with you more. For example, I've had sponsors that once they got my money, I could never get a hold of them! To me, that is out of integrity. If we become the sponsor we never had, we'll have no problem attracting people who want to work with us.

So true Lloyd, you have to become the leader you want to see in the world. It is really about helping others become successful.

What a powerful message on Becoming the Sponsor you never had. To many times people sign up for a program and the highlight of the opportunity is the day they signed up.

A good sponsor should be teaching, working and encouraging along the journey.

Great advice! I think it is so important to be the sponsor you would want. I think the more you can give to your down line and be there for them the better you will become. Thanks for the great post.

Hi Llody,
great point - become the sponsor we never had!
Yes, it starts with me and it is all in there. All I have to do is believe it and apply it and do the best I can.
It is sort of like: We can complain about how our parents treated us, or we can learn from it and treat our children differently.
Thanks for the post.
Have a great day

It all goes back the basic principals of leadership. Great post!

If we are not willing to do the stuff we expect our downline to do no system will work.

Work the system, be the change that you want to see in your business, then reap the rewards of success.

Have a great day!

HI Lloyd

Thanks for your fabulous inspiring article. It is so true. In 2001 I left what my Dad thought was a well paid job to setup my business. He then ended up working for us! I am an Associate of Accounts Online (a qualified accountant specialising in systems accounting - and in 2003 became a Director of Accounts Online Australia Pty Ltd. I manage my businesses from New Zealand. Our business helps businesses like yours simplify the way you do your bookwork so you can get on with what you love doing. This is a residual income business and now we are global. Along the way I read "Rich Dad Poor Dad" and own our property businesses. It is about having no fear, and if you do not give it a go you will never know if you could have succeeded. As you mention - A marathon is a race without race, without religion....every one starts and finishes as a winner. When I trained for my marathon I had to put alot of time and effort in and determination to get over that line, plus sit on my exercycle and visualise finishing. I liken what I do know as a marathon, travelling round talking to people and training people (plus exploring along the way) - it takes a lot of effort but the rewards are absolutley priceless.
Money is not the driver - it is the helping businesses realise that there is an easier way than the traditional accounting solutions that require you to reprocess information that the Banks or credit card companies have already captured for you. In the global recession we have helped businesses survive and cut costs. We also help them prepare for the day they want to exit their business. We give our clients choices and find out what suits their needs. If you would like to know more and trial the Xero online accounting, or BankLink if you are in NZ or Australia click on www.accountsonline.co.nz

Thanks for inspiring me to share.

Hi Lloyd. Great post. I think your one statement sums up everything "Once I stopped thinking about "making money" and started thinking about how to help others make money is when I started to make money." That's it. But a word of caution here. You can not help everyone, only those that are open and willing to do the work. You can waste a lot of time "convincing" people they should want this for themselves and that never works.
