Goal: You Want to Grow Your Network Marketing Business Faster by avoiding mistake #5
You get started in your business and you sign up your first person. You are going to be a millionaire this is the one! You never have to work a day in your life because this one person will build a huge business. The day after they sign up they suddenly blank you. They do not return calls, sms, whats app messages. They have just disappeared from the face of the earth. You start beating yourself up as your dream is shattered. You lost the best person ever and now you feel like you won't continue to grow in your business...
Have you ever met the 3 week player? They are all gung-ho for the first three weeks then suddenly quit.
Never ever assume your best people will stay. Never assume that people who start will be successful. Never assume that people who start will ever do anything. Never assume that even your top leaders who are doing well in the business will stay forever.
After 2.5 years of doing this I finally moved to London to take it seriously. After a few months I met a lady in a cafe who took my leaflet. She then handed it to Dr. Terry Loong at another event. Dr. Terry emailed me asking if she could join the team. This lady was amazing at the business. She just had this great energy and was able to build a great group of both distributors and customers. She quickly became my strongest team.
A year or so later we decided to move in together so we could do meetings in our flat in London. This is what would become the unofficial headquarters for our company in the UK. I will not say anything more than this flat was totally disgusting. Not really a sign of amazing success. However, it did form the foundation of the leaders who built up the majority of my team.
Another couple of years passed and I started to spend more time in Turkey than in London. This is when Dr. Terry started to lose a bit of interest for the business. Then one cold day we had lunch together and she told me that she was going to stop working with our network marketing business.
I was heart broken and so scared that my business would collapse. One person quitting made me feel horrible. I did not get over that incidence for about three years or so.
Now several years later I am super thankful for having Dr Terry in my life. We are still in touch every now and then and I have no bad feelings at all.
A few things you can do to avoid this mistake…
Never ever let anyone quit! No just kidding. Of course you cannot decide what others will do. The big takeaway here is to understand that most people will quit even those you are 100% will go to the top. Know that from day 1.
Leave the door very open and keep asking them to work with you again. I recently started working with one of my best friends who quit this about 12 years ago. She saw the success and wanted a piece of that. This is the best way you can re-engage the quitters. Go and have massive success and keep in touch with them. There was a reason they joined in the first place and there is probably a good chance they will come back. They will have a hard time saying no as long as you always have fun and make sure they will have fun doing this again.
Challenge for you:
From now on treat every new sign up like they are the one who will go to the top of your compensation plan but also prepare for that they will quit tomorrow.
When someone decides to quit. Always leave the door open and thank them for all they have done. I do not have a true statistic but just based on what I have experienced about 95-99% of people who quit never end up finding anything better anyway.
Develop an abundance mindset so people quitting will not affect you. This is done by a simple daily routine like the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.
Never ever take things too seriously when people do leave your team.
Develop a massive team so when your top people quit it will not affect your bottom line. Sometimes when big leaders quit the team recommit and decide to step up leadership themselves and the entire organization grows even more. You can continue to grow in your business!
