Great question right?

I’m sure you’ve dealt with this
situation if you’ve had any sort of
tenure as a network marketer.
I mean you do all the research, you find
a business that you think is a perfect
fit for you, you do the research to find
a great sponsor, and then when you think
everything is matched up perfectly you
You get in and then you get very little
support from your upline!
You don’t know what to do or where turn
and you start to feel like you’re in
this thing all alone.
Well I’m going to tell you something
that I’m guessing you’ve never heard
Well as someone that was in a network
marketing company with a great sponsor
and in a network marketing company with
virtually no sponsor I’ve seen things
from both sides.
So let me explain why you’re lucky. . .
When I started with network marketing I
was sure to dot all my eyes and cross
all my tees.
I found a good sponsor and what I
thought to be a good system.
I did everything I was taught to do and
seven a half months later I had no
My second run in network marketing I
found a company I liked without regards
to the sponsor and joined.
(In fact, I’ve never spoken to my
sponsor once – I think he’s somewhere in
And now years later I’ve got a thriving
organization that grows by 10 to 15
people a day like clockwork without any
direct upline support.
If we looked at the situation
objectively based on my results the
obvious conclusion would be that going
in without a sponsor is the way to go.
Now I’m not going to say that is totally
true, but . . .
Going into a business without a strong
sponsor does have its advantages.
It forces you to go out into the world
without expectations and without their
system and figure it out for yourself.
You’re forced into a leadership role.
You have to find what works for you and
if you don’t there’s nothing to lean on,
so it’s really a do or die situation!
You’re forced to go to school and learn.
You have to buy books and information
from those who have been more successful
than you and then create your own system
out of it.
You have to be independent.
If you have a good sponsor you can get
You can rely to heavily on their system
and their promise of its effectiveness.
You have a scape goat for when it
So when you don’t see the success you
thought you deserved from all your hard
work it’s NOT your fault, it’s your
sponsors fault, it’s your company’s
(At least in your own mind.)
All I’m saying is, if you’re going to be
successful in network marketing your
sponsor has little to do with it.
He or she can shorten your learning
curve, but it’s up to each and every one
of use to define our path to success and
become our own leader.

lifetime? Let’s see:
