I recently was at a regional event for one of my network marketing companies, and something the master distributor (no names mentioned) said really stuck with me. And I took his advice, needless to say, It is helping me tremendously in my day to day operations of my companies. His advice was, "If you see yourself going to the top, why wait until you're there to start developing your leadership skills?" This is vital, because being in network marketing and being successful, you have to be able to influence people into locking arms with you, and duplicating what you've been able to do. Would my fellow network marketing pros agree?
