He’s a legend in our industry and most importantly, he’s also an ambassador to the industry.
I consider Eric Worre as one of my best mentors.
In case you don’t know who Erice Worre is, here are a few quick things you should know about him:
He is the founder of Network Marketing Pro.
He’s been a top producer in several companies.
He’s owned his own MLM Company.
He has more than 20 years experience in this industry.
He’s authored the best-selling book “Go Pro.”
Finally, he is one of the most respected leaders and trainers in the entire network marketing industry
What I admire most about Eric is that he tells you the things you need to hear, not just what you want to hear.
Of course, he does this in a professional way, so it doesn’t insult you or make you angry.
Another thing I really admire about Eric Worre is the VALUE that he provides to our industry.
While he’s achieved great success himself, he also gives back and shares his knowledge with everyone, free of charge.
He doesn’t sugar coat stuff and he won’t try to hype you up either.
He just gives you the information you need to succeed, and lets you do what you want to do with that information.
Most importantly, he is an ambassador to the industry.
He doesn’t try to recruit you into anything and he does what he can to improve the overall reputation of our industry.

Listed below, I want to share five things I learned from Eric Worre, the founder of Network Marketing Pro®.
They are listed in no particular order.
All I can say is that each lesson has had a profound impact in my business and in my life.
# 1 Don’t Pay Attention to the Money, Focus on Building Your Skills Instead.
My Take: Most people who get involved in our industry initially do so to make money.
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Unfortunately, most of these new people have zero sales, marketing and entrepreneurial experience (or skills).
As a result, they struggle with their business and normally quit in 90 days or less.
Eric teaches the importance of focusing on building your skill-set and mind-set, first.
For most distributors this will take them a few years to do!
Most people have never owned a business before and don’t know how to “think” like a successful business person.
And most distributors lack sales and marketing skills, so they have to take the time and money to develop those skills.
I’ve also learned from personal experience that most businesses take a few years to get profitable.
During those first few years, you are incubating, paying your dues and learning the ropes!
If you give up too soon, you’re really doing yourself an injustice.
Yes, you need to make money to survive, but don’t let the money alone determine whether or not you keep building your business.
As long as you are growing and developing new skills, and making some progress in your business each month, your business will eventually make it.
# 2 Provide Value to Others – The More Value You Provide, the More Valuable You Will Be And The More Money You Will Make
My Take: Whether you have a business or a job, you get paid based upon the value you bring to the market place.
The more value you provide, the more money you make.
There are no exceptions to this rule!
To grow your network marketing business, you need to focus on providing value to others.
Before you can provide value to others, you have to develop your skill-set and mind-set (as mentioned above).
Once you have those two things in place, you need to be the leader who offers solutions to other people’s problems.
When you can show others how to generate leads, how to use systems, how to recruit properly, how to blog your way to success, or any other skills, people will naturally be attracted to you and want to join your team.
When you offer value, you won’t need to sell, convince, chase, pressure or bug anyone.
You will be the hunted, not the hunter.
Focus on helping people, not selling people.
Always find ways to increase your value to the marketplace and your business will naturally grow.
# 3 Be a Professional – Treat Your Network Marketing Business As If It Is Already A Million Dollar Business. Act As Professionally As a Fortune 500 CEO Would Act. Be A Professional At All Times.
My Take: This industry is filled with amateurs who give our industry a bad reputation.
One of the quickest ways to separate yourself from the masses in our industry is to be a professional.
To do so, you must educate yourself about the industry.
You must be a student of the industry and be a student of your own business.
You must have integrity and hold yourself to a higher standard.
You must never lie or deceive your prospect.
You must act as if everything you are doing is being watched under a microscope.
Be a professional at all times.
It doesn’t cost you anything!
By being professional, you will (1) get better results in your business, (2) help improve our industry’s reputation and (3) you will be respected and regarded in high esteem by people inside and outside of our industry.
# 4 90 Days Can Change Your Life – Successful Distributors Work Their Business Consistently, But They Build It In 90-Day Spurts.
My Take: Momentum is one of the most important words in a network marketer’s vocabulary.
While you should be in it for the long-haul, you must take small bursts of massive action.
This is frequently referred to as a 90-day challenge.
This is when you “sell out” to your business for 90-days at a time, so you can grow your business quickly.
Building a business fast is much easier than building it slowly.
People say that this industry is the easiest profession in the world when you work hard and built it fast, and the hardest profession in the world when you work slowly.
I believe that!
Commit to doing a day 90-Day Challenge in your business.
Set some “high level” goals, develop an action plan and then take massive action.
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
# 5 The Journey is Everything – The Way to Be Happy In Life And In Network Marketing Is to Remember That The Journey Is Everything. Success Is Not a Destination.
My Take: I was fortunate to learn this lesson a few years back (thanks, Eric).
I used to be so obsessed about reaching the next phase of my life.
That was a big mistake that caused lots of depression and unhappiness.
You need to realize that life is a journey.
Live in the moment.
It is called the present because it is a gift.
The past should be cherished, but don’t live in the past.
You can’t change yesterday.
The future should be exciting, too, but don’t live in the future.
The only way to be happy is to live in the moment.
In addition, you need to realize that reaching your goals won’t make you happy.
Earning millions in the industry won’t make you happy, either.
The only thing that will make you happy is if you live in the moment and enjoy each day of journey.
This is simple, but life-changing advice.
