At first glance perfectionism seems like a good thing. We all want to do things well but in reality perfectionism is killing the progress in many network marketers business.


I hear it all the time. “I can’t start selling the products until I learn more.” I don’t know enough to build a business.” “I don’t know how to be a leader yet.”


I have heard all kinds of reasons why people can’t build their business yet. It is the number one reason people give me as to why they don’t want to start writing a blog. They don’t feel like they know enough so they will wait until they know more.


Funny thing that happens when you wait until you know enough. You never seem to get to that point. There will ALWAYS be more to learn. Our fears can keep us stuck in a state of analysis paralysis. There is no perfect person on the planet! We are all human and we WILL make mistakes.




I love that quote by Joe Schroeder, “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it GOING!” The way to get anywhere is to start from where you are right now and learn as you go.


Here is the key:


Learn things –> Share what you learned! –> Repeat –> Learn things –> Share!


If you are writing a newsletter or a blog, you can share things you are learning. Share things that will benefit other people. There are many people in need of the things you have learned. Even if you are a brand spanking new distributor, you can start writing a blog.


Writing a blog and building a list is one really powerful way to build your business. It’s absolutely HUGE in importance, especially if you have any plan to do any online marketing.


Once you begin writing your blog, don’t be so worried about getting it perfect. Just get it going. 😉


I know how easily you can get caught up in details and perfectionism. It’s something I have struggled with over the years in my business. When you find yourself stalled because of trying to get things just right, remind yourself of Joe’s words.


You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it GOING!

It may seem a little harsh but I’m telling you now, if you don’t love what you do, you don’t have much chance for success in network marketing. The failure rate is pretty high in this industry but you CAN increase your odds for success.


Well, first thing is, let’s lose that word ODDS. It’s not about odds. It’s about YOU and what you do, but one thing that is a major help in your success is liking what you do.


Those who are really successful in network marketing really love what they are doing. Not only do they like the network marketing industry and the company they are with but they also love marketing and promoting their business.


That’s the part I want to talk to you about today. Actually finding pleasure in marketing your business. I heard someone say once, “Find the work you love, and the compensation will follow.” That can be applied to the type of marketing you choose to promote your business. There are LOTS of ways to do that.


When I first began my network marketing career 17 years ago I was in a company that was not right for me and I hated what I was doing. They had us doing hotel meetings, 3 way calls on friends and family and other things that just did NOT fit my style. I stuck with that first company for 2 years until I just could not continue. I really did not like what I was doing. I loved the idea of working from home and having time and financial freedom but it seemed like something unattainable.


When another opportunity came along that felt like a better fit, I decided to give it another go. This time I would do things in a way that felt comfortable to me. That was 15 years ago and I am very glad I didn’t give up on my dreams to work from home.


The key for me was to learn ways to market my business that I could really enjoy. I needed to get people coming to me. I had no intention of chasing after people.


There are LOTS of ways to market your business and get leads coming to you. Find the ones that fit your style. Get your systems in place. Learn the skills and the mindset you need, then practice until you get better.


The best training I have found that covers most everything a serious network marketer needs is What’s Working Now.


The more you love what you are doing, the more successful it will be for you.


I invite you to try a test drive: ==> What’s Working Now

Do you ever wake up feeling angry for no apparent reason? You just feel irritable and everything seems like a bother. You just feel like going back to bed. It’s a mystery to me why some days we wake up singing and other days we just want to bite someone’s head off.


I woke up in one of those moods today and I admit, it took a couple hours of nastiness before I decided I need to work on myself and do some EFT. I’m feeling much better now and I thought I’d share an EFT tapping session on releasing anger in case you have a need of it. You can come back here anytime and tap along. There will be days when we’ll need it. 😉


It is important to have a good emotional energy when you are working on your business tasks as a network marketer. Especially prospecting and marketing your business. Law of Attraction is always at work. When we are in a negative emotional state, we actually repel the things we are wanting to attract.


If we want the Law of Attraction to work in our favor, we need to be in a good mood when we are working on our business. This is especially important in the beginning when we are more likely to be easily discouraged.
