One of the most confusing times of any MLM network marketer is when there up line support (very often the very person who brought them into this MLM network marketing opportunity in the first place) decides to quit and leave to greener pastures.
Very often new MLM Network marketers and business people start to feel a sense of pressure, frustration, anxiety, and overwhelm that was never there before – simply because their safety net has been removed. Now responsible for their own success, they begin to wonder about how they’re going to be able to make ends meet (and you can completely forget about becoming a financial success) simply because they are unsure of how to move forward.
Luckily, this is not the issue that most people assume it to be, and the thought of the entire process is almost always tremendously more overwhelming than any actual situation is in reality. Here are a couple of specific strategies to help you navigate the situation when this starts to happen to you, helping you to come out on top better than ever before.
Simplify everything in Your MLM Business
While you’re not going to want to overload or overwhelm yourself at any point in time when becoming an MLM Network Marketer, the truth of the matter is that when you start to reach out and take on a tremendous amount of responsibility (responsibility that you simply did have before) things can get a little bit crazy. You’re going to feel like now that your downline support is gone you need to take the reins, which may or may not be true.
But even if this is true, simplifying the process and really distilling down the most important details – and only paying attention to them, at least at first – is going to get you through this transitional period.
Create an effective action plan
Notice that I said and effective action plan, and not just any old plan.
Too many people start to get bogged down in the process of trying to work out their own plans, planning for plans and then planning how to plan the next plan. If you feel a little bit confused at that last sentence, imagine what life would be like if that’s how you were operating on a regular basis – a situation that they could find yourself in when dealing with the lack of up line support.
No, you’ll want to focus entirely on what the next step is – and only what the next step is – and then move forward a single step at a time until you are able to accomplish everything that you had originally set out to. This is the easiest way to build real success in the MLM world anyways, but it just so happens to be the most powerful way to navigate when your up line support has disappeared.
No matter what, always push forward and try to generate a positive moment
If you take nothing else away from this article except for this point, you’ll have got a tremendous amount of value. Whatever you do when your up line decides to disappear or quit you need to keep your momentum rolling forward, doing everything and anything you can to avoid sliding back, coasting or declining in any way whatsoever.
