Business People who Don’t Know Business

I want to spend a few moments talking about business people who don't know business. You may in fact be one of those people. I sincerely hope you are not however, if you are, the only thing that can set you free is the truth.  If you've followed me on this blog for a while, you've seen me dive into this before. Not everyone in the MLM industry knows what they are talking about and this includes the Exhaled 'leaders' in most MLM companies.

I've had a post running on my Facebook for several weeks now; and almost no one comments. The reason is simple. Most business people don't know business.

Here's a short version...
None of my business, facebook not sharing with people

... and the Crickets begin.

Mostly it's because business people don't know business.

On facebook, specifically, my network is largely comprised of friends, family members and ... people who claim to know business; you know, 'business people'. Unfortunately while I love the industry of MLM - the business model itself; the business people IN mlm are a far cry from Actual business people.

This is one of many reasons that MLM gets no respect in the business world. It's not because the industry is full of scams, pyramids, or rip-offs. You'll find that in so many areas of the business world that it makes no sense. To think this kind of foolishness is limited to traditional business models is simple minded at best. The world itself is full of corruption and it no doubt finds a way to crawl into all areas of life and society.

You should expect some of that to be in MLM too. However in the MLM world we are supposed to be working on growth. For many of you that means growing your financial literacy. That means starting to really work on thinking like a business minded person rather than an employee. The way network marketers CLING to mlm companies and pit each one 'against' the other is all employee mentality on display.

For example. The main social networking platform that people in MLM use is Facebook.

In the past few years you've also seen them venture into Instagram and Twitter too. But for 'some reason' - many are resistant to use TSU.

For me the answer is simple. It's because people in the MLM industry, for the most part are NOT business people.

They are business people who don't know business.

none of my business twitter, instagram, pinterest not paying you,

.... yea but that's none of my Business.

Let's have a real conversation about this.


A Better Approach to MLM

Welcome reader! I'm sure you are here to find out what I mean by a Better approach to MLM - but my hope is that you're actually going to take the time to understand what that means.

Many people are impatient seekers of knowledge and they do themselves a disservice. They are in a hurry to win and take shortcuts and harm their own mission in the process. Do you really want to take a better approach to MLM or not? Does that idea just 'sound good' to you or is it something you're absolutely serious about??

Truth is, only time will tell.

Time tells, every single time though. Greg Provenzano, President and Co-Founder of ACN would always say that a winner has the ability to stay excited about something long enough to win. He said average people could stay excited for a few weeks, above average people could stay excited for a few months, but winners stay excited about an opportunity to win, for as long as it takes to win. A better approach to MLM involves patience. There is a right way to do things and that right way is often 'slow' - but if it's done right, by the time the wheel gets spinning there's no slowing it down. A better approach to MLM is what's needed for all of us.

Please take the time to listen.

There is a right way to do business in this industry.

There is also a WRONG way to do business; and that is the main reason that not nearly enough of us are making the kind of money we can and should be making.
