Create a Weekly Work Schedule for Your MLM Business

We are all creatures of habit.  Ultimately, what we do on a daily basis will determine where we end up in life.  In order to become successful, you need to schedule your time so you can work smart and be productive.

When it comes to the world of network marketing, most people are doing it part-time.  Most people have a day job, a family, and responsibilities inside and outside of the home.  As a result, many people do very little to grow their business.  Simply put, life gets in the way and their network marketing business gets put on the back burner.

I’ve learned that you will never achieve success with something if it is always on the back burner.  You can build a successful network marketing business part-time, but you need a game plan, focus and discipline.  More importantly, you need to schedule your time wisely.  If you don’t make your business a priority, you will fail.

I am a big believer in creating a weekly work schedule.  Rather than creating these large monthly and yearly goals, I think you should do your business one week at a time. This will keep you in the zone, keep things simple, and let you work smart.

The process of creating a weekly work schedule is actually quite simple.  Step number one is to set your goals for the week.  Step number two is to set your business hours.  And finally, step number three is to determine what activities you will do each day during your work hours.

This weekly work schedule will vary somewhat from person to person, depending upon what you are trying to accomplish with your business, your available time, and how you build your network marketing business.  I’ve provided a sample below to give you a better idea of what a schedule might look like.  Feel free to use this as a template and then modify it to suit your own needs.


  • Business Hours 8:00 to 10:00 pm
  • Spend 30 minutes planning upcoming week

Earlier in this post I talked about the importance of having written goals.  Here is an example of some weekly goals that you could set for yourself, just to give you an idea.

Weekly Goals

  • Work the business 15 hours
  • Read one book
  • Sponsor 1 person
  • Find 1 new customer
  • Contact 15 prospects
  • Do 4 presentations
  • Attend weekly training call
  • Follow up with all leads
  • Send 5 handwritten notes

This process of creating a weekly work schedule is quite simple.  And it’s vitally important.  I learned in the Army that failing to plan is planning to fail!  You should always have set business hours, know what you are working toward and know what activities you are going to to each day that you build your network marketing business. 

The bottom line is that creating a weekly work schedule for your MLM Business (and sticking with it) will really pay off.  If you don’t believe me, try it for a month and see what type of results you get in your business.

  1. Planning and scheduling are an important part of running any business. It is of vital importance to manage your time well so that you are making the most of it and so that your efforts are having the biggest impact possible. I use a planner and I write out EVERYTHING. It not only helps me keep track of what I need to do and what activities or events I have planned, but it holds me accountable. Having a visual reminder helps me ensure I am handling my responsibilities and gives me the satisfaction of marking something off the list once I do complete it.

  2. Yes, yes; great post and thank you for attaching a sample. Setting a schedule is so important, because it is so very easy to get caught up in other things. If we keep our schedule in front of us, and then, like you say, break it down into daily tasks, amazing things can, and will happen.

    I am so happy we don’t have a television, as it can draw us away from our schedules. We must also be careful that we don’t get caught in the social media jungle.

    We can get so much done in 2 hours if we just set our minds to it. A person’s network marketing business can grow substantially just by following Chuck’s tips here.
