Aspire to leadership. Once you have sponsored your first new associate, you need to assume a leadership role. Your new associate will depend on you for guidance and support. If you are relatively new to the business, leverage your upline leaders and all existing forums, especially business presentations and training/education programs. Take your new associate(s) with you to these events.
Conduct/Attend a monthly meeting with key leaders to discuss strategies for growing the business. A 'leader' is generally an associate who is already conducting presentations and running Mentoring Programs.
To get the business off the ground requires concerted effort in the first two years. Hence, having a long-term mindset is fundamental to success. Imagine flying a twin-engine plane. First you get clearance from the tower over the radio for take-off. You aim the aircraft down the runway and put on full throttle. And you go whipping down the runway until you reach take-off speed The air lifts up the wings and the plane climbs and climbs to its flying altitude with its throttle on full. You have to do that in order to get off the ground; you have to have full throttle in order to get your business off the ground, but once you get to cruising altitude, you pull back a little bit.
This is the way life is. Thatís the way this business is. You have to pull on full throttle in order to take off.
Work consistently at growing the business. Remember, if you treat the business seriously, it will pay you like a business, but if you treat the business like a hobby, it will pay you a hobby income.
