Evolving in business.

Earlier this month I was lucky to attend a masterclass of networking skills in London with the top two distributors for Forever Living. So much was learned from this but some of the points made are transferable across businesses and even in to personal life so these I wish to share with you, my readers.

You can think it to death or do it to death.
This point rang home remarkably true. When I started up in network marketing I spent hours reading, planning and personalising things to make it seem more efficient or effective. In hindsight looking back I realised that during that time I could have been out there practicing what I had been taught instead, and would have achieved what I have now far sooner.

Only 1% make over £150k annually.
This is such a small amount and in this the better chance of getting there lays in business ownership. Makes perfect sense when you consider the pyramid outlay people commonly know as a job. In the latter if you think about it you are selling your time at a wholesale price for another to resell it at a profit. Do you honestly think your skills are worth the pittance you are being paid? Who exactly benefits from your time financially? Many things to consider in this especially if you do not get the recognition for your work by running around building another person’s dreams!

 

No doesn’t mean never.
This one is true in so many circumstances. Just because a person says no, doesn’t mean that it will never happen, merely that it is not the right time.  So rather than taking that answer as a negative you should continue and come back to it at a later date. All force begets resistance so don’t push it or you’ll likely find you have less of a chance!!

These are just a small selection, some of which can be used in daily life as well as in the business realms. The most important thing to know is that not everyone will greet you with open arms and understanding and you cannot force a person to do so. With that being said try not to take unexpected reactions to heart and keep on looking at your own situation rather than focusing on one person’s opinion.

Best quote of that event: They don’t pay your mortgage
They don’t and never will so in all cases your opinion of yourself will always matter more.

Everything I learned at that event has helped me to grow as a business woman, as a mother and as a friend. I hope that these small but useful statements can do the same for you, and if they do – pass them on!
