Blog   How Do I Get Posture? 8th Most Asked FAQ by MLMers


I can always tell when a rep has been listening to angry uplines or gurus when it comes to posture…..yet it was no surprise to see this question in the 15 most commonly asked questions.

And it really drives me nuts…for a lot of reasons, it’s a pet peeve of mine.


I know I’ve got a lot of work to do with the person……and changing people’s minds is hard work once they’ve been hurt and feel they’ve found a solution.


What the hell does that mean anyway?

Cookies Are For Sharing, Not Punishing

All these ‘expert opinions’ always have this nonsense phrase in their speech… know?

The teachers, [ahem] of posture always want to come from this militant attitude that we’ve got what they need, they are doomed to a terrible life working for someone else, we can help them get ‘free’ of the 9-5 bondage……get tough….realize what you have……grrrrrrrrrrr!

Wait, there is more nonsense.  More get tough with prospects, how good we have it, how bad their life is and how the need us more than we need them.

It is so off base on so many levels that it’s hard to know where to start.

Is Your "Posture" Real?






  1. They know if you are having a bad day
  2. They know if you are lying

Pretending that we have posture is a lie.

The ‘us’ against ‘them’ mentality is just a miserable way to build this business, so is thinking we are or what we have is superior.

And, it’s a huge turn-off.

Once we’ve got that attitude, we’re screwed.

Our success, ultimately is based of service to others and people respond to authentic service and not, “I got the cookie, you life working for others sucks, you need me.”

It is contrary to the greatest thing we offer everyone: a chance to do better by being in humble service.



How can I say that after that rant?

You’ve got to get authentic posture.

Fake or puffed up posture not only gets you nowhere, if actually prevents you from getting authentic posture.

By learning what to do and what to say you can get 80% + to look at your business.  Its easy once you have the skill.

Now instead of having a hair-trigger and taking it away from people, which only leads to less prospects, you have a ‘pipeline’ that is bursting.


Show me someone with 500 names and numbers AND 40 people this week reviewing information who they’ve booked a follow-up with and I will show you someone who has posture.

Do you think some of the 40 would come in? [No, not being a wise-ass or asking a trick question 🙂 ]

Would you care who came in or didn’t?  Of course not.

That is posture, authentic posture.

You really don’t care because you’ve learned how to get a yes, it’s a simple networking marketing skill, and you know next week you can get 40 more to happily look.
