  1. It is very easy to get caught in the information overload jungle. We all want to succeed, and in many cases, we search for anything, and everything to help us do that. What ends up happening is, as you say, information overload, and also conflicting tips.

    I believe we should go ahead and read and listen to all materials that may be able to help, but also take many of them with a grain of salt. We should pull out what can help us, but that doesn’t mean everything will be useful. A good example, without naming names is: some top network marketers believe in starting with the business opportunity. I am firmly against that. I believe the product should always be led with. That same person had great advice on getting leads though. I took what I thought would help, but ignored the leading with the opportunity.

    It just comes down to being wise in what we take in. Throughout school days, I had some very good teachers. That didn’t mean I agreed with every thing they believed in, or even taught. That didn’t make them bad teachers, it just meant I thought for myself. We must do the same in Network Marketing.

    • I was once told by a mentor to find someone who has accomplished what you want and to listen to them exclusively. I think that could be some great advice.

  2. A solid plan and a good mentor are needed in this field of work. Without a plan you will just be aimlessly searching and really have no solid way as to how you will get to where you desire to be. Mentors come into play here because not only can they help formulate a plan based on their success, but they can help you to avoid some of their pitfalls and mistakes.

  3. I agree: many times, too much information can be a bad thing. Especially when it comes from unreliable, or negative sources. Filter out as much negativity as you can.

    I do think that your second point should be number one: find a good mentor and stick with them. Hopefully you choose a successful mentor (duh), so learn as much as you can from that one person, or that one person’s team. Ask them about mistakes that they have made: you can learn from the mistakes of others just as well as you can learn from you own.

    • Finding a good mentor is paramount. Listening and following their recommendations is even more important.

  4. Chuck, this article is on point. I know from personal experience, that is was not until I did these things, I did not start to have any success in my business. I determined how I wanted to be successful and I focused on that and did not quit and it did take a little while to initially see the results but they results eventually came.
