Successful distributors are successful because they consistently do/did certain activities in their network marketing business.
They are/were in PRODUCTION mode, recruiting and retailing, week after week, for several years to build up a decent sized team and bonus check.
Unfortunately, many of these folks eventually “slow down” or “stop” and their business starts to die a quick death.
This happens because they stopped doing the things that they once did to make them successful.
Once you stop retailing and recruiting, your team will plateau and eventually decline.
Your leaders will see you slow down and they will slow down.
And their followers will slow down because their leaders slowed down.
This will spread throughout your organization.
If you get nothing else out of this post, remember that the speed of the leader is the speed of the team.
Many people make the mistake of going into management mode.
They sponsor a 10-100 people and get some growth in their team, and then they STOP recruiting and instead try to manage their team.
This is a HUGE mistake which usually ends in disappointment and smaller bonus checks.

In this industry, you can’t manage anyone.
Everyone in your team is their own boss and people will naturally do what they want to do with their business.
You can beg them, try to motivate them, persuade them and encourage them, but it’s not your job to make them successful or drag them across the finish line.
Your only real job as a leader is to set the pace for others to follow and to be accessible to your team.
If you want to create long-term success in your business you must stay in production mode and never stop.
Sure, you can slow down a little bit from time to time, but never ever let a month go by where you don’t show 10 presentations or sponsor at least two new distributors.
Also, make it a goal to never let a month go by where you don’t find one or two new customers as well.
Being productive and doing these little things will keep your business growing and keep the momentum in your team.
Your team will continue to respect you and follow your lead because you are producing and leading by example.
The only question you ever really need to ask yourself is this: “am I setting a good example for my team?”
If you can answer yes to that question keep doing what you are doing. If not, make some small changes and get back in production mode.
You’ll be glad that you did.
To clarify, I am not saying you have to work your business full-time at any point. You don’t.
But you do have to do “some” work.
And you need to do it consistently.
