  1. Great video my friend Shelly –

    Yes the problem does lie within us – so true! Living in insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I am not in network marketing – but I am surrounded by network marketers and your words will inspire many!

    Love your craft is a great tip and too good to be true is my motto I live by – nothing is free and no pushing allowed here. I often state there is a fine line between pushy and persistence – persistence works but pushy scares people away. Always listen to your gut – the heart lives in the gut and we sometimes we push away what we are feeling because our heads get in the way.

    In gratitude to your tips,

  2. Amen, Shelly!! Preach on sister. 😛 I totally agree with you that our results in our network marketing businesses completely depends on us and that there is no EASY BUTTON or SECRET WEAPON that will guarantee a person success without refining one’s craft. Networking marketing is a business model, and a great one at that. And yes, one has to be careful to the marketing efforts that appeal to our “lazy bone” (I love that expression). Great post.

    Hi Shelly,
    You are absolutely right, we need to develop ourselves if we want to be success. Your mentor or coach will give you the guideline which is just a portion of what is expected of you to do. You want to spend time and money to invest if you want to make it in this industry. Education changes everything.

    Loved this! So important to put in the effort to get the results. We’re in the same company and like many MLMs your business is built on relationships! Relationships don’t have any easy button, we shouldn’t expect a business that is driven by them to.

  5. Really great message Shelly. Love the journey we are on as entrepreneurs. Yes it’s true that we are getting better at smelling the fishy stuff! It’s still always a challenge to stay focused but we are getting much better at that as well. Slickters are out there but we are stronger and much more knowledgeable now…so that’s all good…Let’s keep up informing others about it … Great share!

  6. Alot of people sign up for courses, get coaching and pay for products but then don’t work it.
    Of course there ARE scammers, but buyer beware and do your due diligence.
    Great tips here Shelly.

  7. fab video – too true, it’s a journey with lots of rough and tumble and a mega lot of learning, there are good trainings and coaches out there, but as you say Shelly – no-one will do the work, or build your business for you – so if your bones are ‘lazy’ there’s no hope for you in this business!!
    thanks, Jacs

    Wonderful Message Shelly:

    Seems like all of us that have been in this ‘game’ awhile have gone thru the ‘School of Hard Knocks’ I got my education there for a lotta hard earned Bucks:-)…LOL

    You said so may great things…..

    The Problem starts with each of us…. we Gotta take RESPONSIBILITY…it is up to us to do it for us…no one else can do it for us

    also hone your craft…I love it! I think it was Gladwell that said it takes 10,000 hours to perfect a skill & become a Master,,,I think you must be there having been in this for 10 years (NOTE —as a former Corp. Manager I knew 40 hours a week for 52 weeks was 2040 hours per year—so it takes at least 5 years or 10 at this to be an expert if you are a parttimer)

    interesting words you use this is a Marathon …I was just telling a Prospect the other day this was not a 100 yard dash to cash but more like a grueling Cross Country run,,,where you at times struggle till you learn to properly pace yourself.

    Be Blessed

    Great post Shelly! As you know I have been through the school of hard knocks more times than I care to talk about here. Persistence is the key and has been my motto for some time now.

    I like what you said about trusting your gut and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Although I’ve heard this for years, so often I forget it and it helps to be reminded. Maybe I should put a note right in my work area so I remember that.

    Trouble is there are so many people pitching their products and services and ARE sincere and mean well because they are blindly trusting a coach or mentor they think is sincere and really has it figured out. As a newbie you don’t know the difference and have no history. The trusting person can be hit hard. It does take some time and experience to separate the ‘wheat from the chaff” and to find that inner voice that signals your gut feelings.

    Hi Shelly,

    This is my first visit to your blog. It’s great to meet you through the Networking Superstars! I related to everything you mentioned in your video. Developing yourself is most important. It is a must in this business. If you do not establish the right mindset, it doesn’t matter what program you buy, who your mentor is, whether you have a vision board, or the amount of wealth books you’ve read. You have to believe in yourself and truly feel you deserve success. You must also have a passion for this industry to be able to stick with it long term through all the bumps, successes, and restarts.

    There is no easy button in Networking Marketing or life! It takes a tremendous amount of dedication, or in other words, blood, sweat, and tears to reach your goals. Always listen to your gut feelings when you are presented with a “Shiny Object.” There are a lot out there and it takes time and experience to differentiate between what appears to be the “secret” or a tool that will help you as you are doing the work required to be successful. There is also no “secret.”

    I get sick and tired of the claims presented on the internet and I’ve been in the business long enough to ignore them. Unfortunately, beginning marketers don’t have the experience and master marketers know what to say to get people to click on the buy button. Your tips are excellent for those who have become victim to some of the intentional designed confusion by the “slick express.”
