If you’ve never heard of John and Tiffaney Malott, you are really behind the power curve. They are some of the most successful and highly respected people in the entire network marketing industry. I have TREMENDOUS respect for what they have accomplished and how they handle themselves.
As a quick disclaimer, I am NOT part of their team or in the same company. However, I have watched most of their YouTube videos and followed their training for quite some time. I recently read a great write up about them in Networking Times magazine and felt obligated to share some of the lessons I learned.
What I want to do in today’s post is share six of my favorite quotes from their magazine article. Each quote will be in bold and italics. After each quote I will provide my own two cents on the topic! Enjoy.
# 1 Success comes as a result of paying attention, learning from failure, and refusing to give up.
The little things do matter. To succeed in anything you should be a sponge and seek knowledge. Find mentors and learn from your mistakes. Every time you get knocked down make sure you get back up. Try to learn something new every single day and apply it in your business.
# 2 Our passion is what attracted people in the beginning and it still attracts people today.
You have to get excited. Get excited about who you are, what you are doing and where you are headed. This enthusiasm will attract others into your business. It’s true, ignorance on fire is better than knowledge on ice.
# 3 Our philosophy is build locally, think globally.
Start recruiting in your own back yard with the people that you know. As you work through your warm market your business will naturally expand into other towns, states and countries. So many people want to sponsor people long distance or internationally, rather than working locally. I think that’s a big mistake. The major benefit of sponsoring locally is that you can support and help the people that you work with.
# 4 To sustain duplication in your organization you have to keep a simple system that gets results.
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Keep things caveman simple on your team. Make the business so simple to do that anyone can do it. Teach people how to work work their warm market, how to prospect, and how to use third party tools. Get people plugged in to your systems, training calls, and local meetings.
# 5 The key to retaining team members is to provide a bigger mission for the team than the acquisition of a check.
People want to belong to something greater than themselves. Creating a team culture is vitally important for the long term success of your network marketing business. If people can get a sense of belonging by being part of your team, there’s a good chance they will stick around even if they decide to stop doing the business.
# 6 We’re glad we stuck it out.
Perseverance is very important to your long-term success in any business. No successful business of any kind is built in a year or two. Anyone can start something, but you’re going to have to finish what you start if you want to become successful. The bottom line is to be a finisher.
