There are hundreds of people throughout the United States alone that are making millions of dollars each year through their successful multilevel marketing (MLM) businesses. Regardless of the specific product or service that is being sold or the name of the company that pays them, the basic principle and foundation of all MLM companies is the same when it comes to the overall business opportunity. However, one of the biggest problems that even the most successful people that work within this particular industry encounter is that they can burn out quickly. Even though there are many jobs in which you can burn out and still make a living, multilevel marketing is truly not one of them. What steps can you take, therefore, to make sure that you never get burnt out in your MLM business?
Focus on Recruitment More Than Sales
The quickest way to become burnt out in your MLM business is to place all of your focus on direct sales. Once you have started to do that, then you are basically eliminating the multilevel part of the MLM system primarily because you are entrapping yourself within that first level. Whether your business is successful or not rests solely on your own efforts and resources. If you do not make any sales on a specific week, then you are not going to get paid. Therefore, taking a “vacation” (in the traditional sense of the word) will not be possible, because you will always have to work in order to make sure that you keep the money coming in, which can become very exhausting and eventually lead to burning yourself out.
By focusing more on recruitment and building an organization of people, you will be able to use that leverage to relieve yourself of that burden. It will get you to the point where you will still be getting paid residual income, overrides and bonuses simply by having a working organization even during the days, weeks or months that you do not do even work personally.
Never Forget Your Initial Motivation
There are so many different MLM companies that encourage their team members to always focus on their “Why” statements, which clearly identify why they decided to get involved in the MLM business in the first place. Money is a great motivator, but it is not strong enough to keep you motivated in this business. Maybe you wanted to spend more time with your child in a way that a traditional 9-5 job would not allow. Maybe you wanted to enjoy a better quality of life without having to worry about struggling financially anymore. Perhaps you were just sick of punching the clock every day and wanted to be your own boss.
By reminding yourself of why you decided to get into the world of MLM in the first place, you will be able to effectively motivate and drive yourself to stay excited and engaged in this business without burning out. Why? This is because you will realize that you want more than just money from your MLM business – you want freedom.
