I was watching a Hannah Montana video the other day, (hey, give me a break... I have a 3 year old that loves her) and saw a new music video she has called "The Climb". It reminded me so much of network marketing. I believe we have way too many people joining this industry everyday that are looking for that "lottery ticket" to wealth or the easiest "auto pilot" business to success. Unfortunately, those of us that are eager for that first sponsor or another quick sale are providing success stories and all of the hype of joining their business without mentioning the climb it took to get where they are today. I think it is very important to share with my prospects the actual journey I took to get where I am today. They need to know that they are going to fail their way too the top. They need to know that they need to increase their knowledge of the business and increase their self value. It's important for them to know that it just doesn't happen overnight....maybe not even weeks, or months. As leaders, if you start to share your journey, or your climb with your prospects you wll start to weed out the tire kickers and uncover the diamonds that have the true entrepreneurial spirit in them. Those are the people that will build a strong business for you and themselves!
