How I went from From Newbie to Professional Network Marketer.
My UK Health and Wealth Seminar Tour – September 2017 is about to begin and I thought I would share how I think my story to get to these events is relevant for you.
One of the privileges of my business is to do live Health & Wealth Seminars to provide a showcase for my network marketing team and to present our health product and business opportunity to new people every month.
These events enable my team to have a focus on inviting new prospects to see how our business works.
Around 75% of the event is purely product presentation and then we cover the business opportunity at the end so that each person leaves with a full appreciation of our opportunity as well as an understanding of how our unique, medical standard health system can help people enjoy optimum physical health.
You are, of course, invited.
In the Beginning……
When we step up and put our heads above the parapet then the universe tends to provide new opportunities for growth of our business and helps us develop new skills and habits that help us in many areas of our lives.
When I decided to follow my sponsor and begin presenting and promoting showcase events like this it was pretty scary. I developed a powerpoint presentation with his help, booked a room and invited as many people as I could think of. 1 person turned up, I think! It went like that for a few meetings. Not many people showed and then all of a sudden after around 4 monthly meetings with hardly anyone there, 30 people came. Then 50. Then my business just began to take off so that now I present seminars across the UK and have done the same presentation in the U.S., Italy, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.
From small seeds big acorns grow. That is so true of a successful network marketing business. In the beginning we are sowing seeds,nurturing them. Just like the parable of the sower. Some of them fall on rocky ground, others are strangled by the weeds and some, maybe few in the beginning, fall on good ground and begin to appear as little shoots. And so your network marketing business begins to grow and if you continue to nurture your team then your income will increase year on year.
It reminds me of the story of the growth of the Bamboo Tree.
The Story of The Chinese Bamboo Tree
Like any plant, growth of the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine. In its first year, we see no visible signs of activity. In the second year, again, no growth above the soil. The third, the fourth, still nothing. Our patience is tested and we begin to wonder if our efforts (caring, water, etc.) will ever be rewarded.
But let’s be serious, does the Chinese Bamboo Tree really grow 80 feet in six weeks? Did the Chinese Bamboo Tree lie dormant for four years only to grow exponentially in the fifth? Or, was the little tree growing underground, developing a root system strong enough to support its potential for outward growth in the fifth year and beyond?
The answer is, of course, obvious. Had the tree not developed a strong unseen foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew. The same principle is true for people. People, who patiently toil towards worthwhile dreams and goals, building strong character while overcoming adversity and challenge, grow the strong internal foundation to handle success, while get-rich- quickers and lottery winners usually are unable to sustain unearned sudden wealth.
Had the Chinese Bamboo Tree farmer dug up his little seed every year to see if it was growing, he would have stunted the Chinese Bamboo tree’s growth as surely as a caterpillar is doomed to a life on the ground if it is freed from its struggle inside a cocoon prematurely. The struggle in the cocoon is what gives the future butterfly the wing power to fly, just as tension against muscles as we exercise strengthen our muscles, while muscles left alone will soon atrophy.
And So It Is…..
Now after persistently putting my head above the parapet my seminars help others to succeed. My blog even helps network marketers outside my group and the products I recommend begin to bear fruit across the network marketing universe so that many, many others enjoy a secondary if not primary income success within our industry.
Now my network marketing group grows daily and my seminars touch new people every time we present them and I get testimonies like this:
Attending Peter’s Health & Wealth Seminars has changed my life! And from there I have changed and help other in my family and friends alike!
So if we set the seeds, continue to nurture and think long term, our network marketing businesses will grow.
And So It Can Be….. for YOU….
I sit here writing this from a hotel in Thailand having spent a week finalising details of our holiday home. In a few months time I will be able to market my business from the terrace of our home, overlooking the mountains and our plantation of fruit and a pond full of beautiful carp.
While this may not be the vision you have for your future, it can give you an idea that you can be FREE from financial worry if you work hard enough and long enough on your network marketing business with the patience of the Bamboo Tree farmer. Because it is consistent, persistent effort that builds a strong residual income with a network marketing business. Network Marketing is NOT a get rich quick scheme. It requires a long term strategy. What is your long term? I would say, 5 years of consistent effort is the most likely period where you will enjoy consistent residual income.
If you are unsure of strategies to build online then I always recommend this: ELITE MARKETING PRO. There are ways to improve your success with social media, email marketing, blogging etc within EMP. I went VIP because I believe in going all in…. but there is a small ticket Pro option too.
