So I was counseling with one of my Diamonds. The wife asked about the news that a couple Diamonds had left the company, and several others were being terminated for cross recruiting. She leaned forward and said, “I know you never send negativity downline, but it’s okay if you tell us how worried you are.” I had to laugh…
Remember my “day job” is teaching the principles of prosperity. And one of the most powerful is the vacuum law of prosperity. When you create a strong culture in your team or company, those that don’t fit in will self-select themselves out of the equation.
So I don’t get hysterical when people leave, I don’t ask my company to do lawsuits or get ruffled. Dr Pepper wants market share from Pepsi, Pepsi wants market share from Coke. DJs leave Power 96 and go to Hot 105. Others leave Q 92 and go to Easy 102. It’s the nature of human nature. The question is never will a top leader leave your company, but who the next one will be.
Especially in Network Marketing, people switch companies all the time. Frankly there are a lot of whores who shop for deals and there will always be desperate companies willing to make them. Others aren’t willing to do the work and think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. And sometimes people just need a change of scenery, don’t like their sponsor, or just feel the company they’re with isn’t a good fit for them.
Each time this happens there will be breathless sensationalism on the Internet, with people blogging, posting videos and jockeying for positions. Remember it’s really just gossip and has no impact on your business, as the only people that visit those sites are the “MLM junkies’ who are always flitting around from deal to deal.
Your job is to stay focused on what matters to you and your team: your CV, product culture, selling tickets to the next event, building to the next major event, and getting your next prospect to a presentation.
Everything else is just gossip, distractions and noise. Stay focused on what matters and you’ll achieve what you’re really looking for.
