The problem: All of us will at some point go into management mode. This is the beginning of the end! Get yourself back to recruiting every day.
Mistake: Once we have a few signups we tend to want to manage the team. I see about 95% of people do this. They might only have been in the business for a few weeks longer but they keep wanting to tell everyone what to do. People will do what you do and not what you say. Therefore it is important to stay in recruitment mode.
I often recruited very well for about 6-12 months then would jump into management mode for 6-24 months. Then again I would have to recruit again. However for each time I had to jump into recruitment mode it would be more challenging. Therefore, I highly suggest to always stay in recruitment mode.
A few things you can do to avoid this mistake…
If you have look at this quadrant you will see four phases. The first phase is the recruitment phase and this is where you need to be for the first 5 to 10 years of your business.
Focus on activities such as:
3 way calls
One of the top things I keep seeing with teams that grow is a big group chat with up to 100-200 people in it. If you keep introducing new people into that chat and bring up the energy then everyone will bring more energy. If you do not have a team that big yet then ask your upline to create a group that might have 20-30 people in it to get things started. Within a few weeks it will quickly go to over a 100 people if everyone is recruiting.
The second stage that you want to stay out of is the management phase. This involves managing your team instead of leading from the front.
Stay away from these activities as much as you can:
You should only be on social media to post or to find inspiration for new material. Also commenting on everyone’s posts can be great as you can help boost posts and you also boost your visibility.
The third phase in the business is the blaming phase. This is when you start to say how bad your upline is for not supporting you. You will also start to see fault in all the products and the company. The worst is your compensation plan. There are loads of other compensation plans that are better than yours. This is when you are in a spiral downwards. The biggest balm though goes to your team how bad they are and never do anything.
The next thing you know it and you are in phase four - phase out - quit - done - finished - no more business!
Do you now see why it is so important to stay in phase 1??
You have to take 100% responsibility for your business. Your team is a reflection of how you are doing and you can never ever blame them. If they are not good enough then get a new team or find a way to inspire them to do better. However never blame them for the lack of success you are having.
There is nothing better than some fresh energy from a brand new signup who has big dreams and goals. That energy is something you need to keep having at all times.
Another huge reason to stay in recruitment mode at all times is to stay relevant with your training material. Yes there are certain principles that never change in the industry. However, small techniques such as the change from calling to messaging to instant messenger etc are all super important and if you are not recruiting constantly you will lose touch. It is much easier to jump on a training to your team explaining how you signed up your latest recruit than tell stories of other people. They will respect you more when they see you are doing it.
Challenge for you:
Make a to do list every day and track where you are spending your time. If you see that all of it is spent in green time from the graphic above then you are on the right path. If you see yourself starting to do red time tasks then quickly get back on track and see how you can spend more time tomorrow in green time.
