Hello Network Marketing Professionals, Just want to say thank you to those of you who responded so far with comments to the blog article yesterday. And to those of you who sent me notes privately, hey, I understand. Sometimes saying your troubles openly can be tough. I got those emails and I’ve asked Kristyn to help me get responses back out to you so look for that in your email. Best to all of you! Now I must say that a couple of the comments which did come were from folks who felt that training really wasn’t as essential as it truly is. For a very small percentage of you, training may not be as essential as it is to others, perhaps because you brought some great skills with you into this industry, or because you’ve got a great upline who is coaxing you along. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for others. The more they can overcome the barriers they do have to getting some training time in the more they are going to have success and honestly, its going to get a lot more fun too! Tim (The rest of this article was prepared by Kristyn Bore.)
The Secret to this MLM Business is Training.
The biggest leaders in the industry have figured out how to teach successful duplication from one leader to the next. The correct skills are taught. And when enough people are doing those correct skills, the magic happens. This industry pays very well when you know the skills and you can teach them so the next person can do them correctly.
Bottom line, if you want to produce more, or you want your downline to produce more, you must be trained.
And the second piece of good news is that my development team has been working with Tim on something that is going to give you more guidance and help in the training department than ever before. I am not allowed to say any more about it right now, but just now that very soon, you’re going to start and see some amazing stuff roll into your inbox. I would encourage you to pay attention.
How & What to Train On
The test of effective training is not whether you show up to a weekly webinar and take notes, or you’re reading the latest and greatest “Rah Rah Motivational – Positive Affirmation” book. Yes, those things are important, don’t get me wrong. But, the most effective training is simply this: Whether you can actually DO THE SKILL you’ve been taught. For example, if you are calling leads and not setting any appointments, it doesn’t matter how many best- selling “Rah-Rah” books you’re reading! Doesn’t matter how “pumped up and excited” that book makes you. If you don’t have the skills to set appointments consistently you’ll continue to drown. So for those of you who are wondering what you should be focused on learning and what you should be studying, here’s a list straight from Tim Sales’ little book with all of the training answers.
This is What You Need to Know

- How to set appointments
- How to Invite
- How to present your business or products

In order for you to get rid of the fear and hesitation and move into productivity that gets results, you need to be effective in each one of these areas.
