The Secret Thing

Let’s get the ‘secret thing’ out of the way first.

There are no secrets in network marketing.

Anyone telling you that is selling you.  Period.

These bottom feeding con artists leveraging your inexperience and hope and passion.

Repeat after me.  There are no secrets.

Ah, I feel better and you just saved a few thousand bucks or more.

Secrets? Hide Credit Card

Networking is just like any other occupation, it requires we learn a few skills.

Want to be a better software writer, butcher, flower arranger?

What would you do?

Learn some skills, practice the skills and put them in play.  Improve with repetition.

This is not news.

What do winners do?

It’s not that winners do certain things, it’s that they do things in a certain way.

That one statement changed my career.


Simple.  Our industry was over 40 years old when I joined, what works and what does not was pretty well mapped out.

Making Money In MLM? Simple. Talk to People

If we are going to make some money, we need to talk to people.  While the inter-webbie thing has made some things better, (and a lot of things worse – con artist playground, for one), in the end, we’ve got to talk to people.  It’s easy once you know the skills and, honestly, you’ve been networking, telling people about stuff you like, your whole life.  This I learned and relaxed.  But…

But I noticed people at higher pin seemed to have some things, just like any other business, in common.

When I questioned my good friend and mentor, Tony Bowling, he dropped the phrase, “It’s not that winners do certain things, it’s that they do things in a certain way.”

“And?”  I asked.

“Notice,” he said.

So I did.  And I found out they do 3 things over and over and over after they learn the skills.

And things got better.

I kept noticing.

I noticed the really big earners like I wanted to be, not only did these 3 things, the also rarely did anything else.

The 3 things?

  • Hey there Mark,

    You’ve made a very necessary point with this post and it shows that winners also know things about people.

    Tom Schreiter says as you do “People have been doing Network marketing their whole lives” and he goes on to state “but they haven’t been paid for it. Network marketing is just recommending and promoting.”

    Let those waves keep rolling in.

  • Thanks Mark,
    Winning is simple, easy and fun when you know the skills, use them and labor under correct knowledge for true success. LUCK!
    Thanks again,
    Renae Massey
