One of the big breakthroughs I had in Network Marketing was when it realized it wasn’t really a sales business, but a teaching and training one. I attribute a lot of my success because I didn’t look for salespeople, but people with good teaching skills.
Teachers fill one of the most important roles in our world, as they influence the future generations. They share the knowledge of textbooks, and mix in their experience and wisdom.
In our business, the principle is similar, but instead of textbooks, we use the system. We take the things that have been tested and proven in the field, and teach these best practices to the group. This allows each generation to avoid mistakes and reach success faster.
Teaching is one of the most important functions you will do as a leader. So work on your teaching skills today!
P.S. Did you know I have a YouTube channel called Prosperity TV? It’s not about Network Marketing, but the timeless principles of prosperity and success. The new episode is up and it’s an important topic, “Are you repelling your prosperity?” See it here: http://www.youtube.com/randygage
