We’ve talked a lot in this space about the difference between professionals and amateurs. Today is a chance to look again at something that makes you a professional in this profession. (And please stop calling it an industry!)
Yes I really believe what we do is a profession, like dentists, accountants, and attorneys. And a big part of being a professional in a profession, is staying abreast of what is going on in the field, updates on laws affecting the business, and “best practices” that are working. That means always sharpening your saw and developing new skills.
And in Network Marketing, that means a subscription to Networking Times Magazine…
Networking Times is where you’ll find thoughtful stimulating articles, interviews and profiles of top achievers, and helpful resources about our business. Anyone that considers themselves a business builder should be a subscriber. And certainly anyone that wants to be a professional!
I make it an integral part of the culture in my organization and I hope you do as well. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can do so here: http://www.networkingtimes.com/link/subscribe/
And I suggest you send out a promo to your whole team sending them here and encouraging them to get a subscription and commit to becoming a professional. You’ll find you have much stronger retention and more committed team!
By the way, if you’re already a subscriber, can you please check in below and explain why it’s important? I want people to understand it isn’t about me hounding them, but them really understanding how important this is to their growth and development in the business.
