The whole truth and nothing but the truth

This is definitely not normally the type of posts that I enjoy writing about, but I thought that I would kinda share my take on the whole thing. For me, I totally understand each side of the coin, and being a full time online networking business owner, and being on both sides, I hope to shed some light and help people better understand more about this hot topic.

For starters, I am a full time Online Beachbody Coach, and I can only speak from my experience, no one else. The things that my team and I do may slightly "to" drastically differ from what other teams, companies, and organizations do otherwise. So take it for what it's worth =).

Top 5 Reasons Why People Dislike Network Marketers:

1.  TACKY SALESMAN STEREOTYPE - We all have been in conversations where you feel that the person that you are chatting with has some sort of hidden agenda. No one likes to be sold, but everyone wants to make a living. I despise sales people, but I've come to an understanding that I can choose to either listen, or simply be polite and let them know that I am not interested. For the person selling, let's maybe brush up on our relationship and people skills instead of trying to sell people the moment you meet them. And for the people on the other end, let's give these people an opportunity to become better at what they do, and if you have time, listen to them and even maybe encourage them. We live in a world where there is way too much hate, but we can all change that by simply listening and encouraging.

2.  ANNOYING FACEBOOK POSTS - Yes, I see this all the time! People always posting about their products, deals, and testimonies. For the most part, most of the products and services are great, it's just all about how the products are presented. For the people who are in the network marketing industry....please remember this: people don't care about what you know or what you're selling unless they know a little bit about you and how much you care. If you are in the networking business, I encourage you to try to naturally share how much the product/s has made a difference in your life (which means you have to be proof that the products work) and REALLY eliminate all the cheesy sales tactics of posting photos of your products just to make a buck, I'm sure it isn't working. And for the people on the other end, understand that this is one of the only industries that allow everyday people to really find success as a entrepreneur. There is a reason why loads of people from the corporate world gravitate towards network marketing, it's because it's a great way to create real wealth and freedom, granted that you aren't lazy and you put in the work.

When you see some cheesy sales behavior, just know that these people are most likely new in the industry, and they need time to grow. Don't be a hater, be a motivator! If you get tired of seeing all the posts, then it's your choice to un-friend them on Facebook. Just be nice =)

3.  THAT'S ALL THEY TALK ABOUT - If you're a network marketer, don't be that guy! The guy that constantly talks about what he has, how much money he makes, and how he can help you make millions! That's a crock, and you know it. The only way that you will get people to listen to you is if you first listen to them. No one cares about your fancy cars and fancy outfits! People relate to real people who understand real life struggles, not easy money. If you are in the networking business, then I encourage you to attend all the training sessions that you can, because talking and bragging about YOU is a surefire way to be UNSUCCESSFUL. If you're on the other end, and you come across someone like this, then just be happy that they are excited about what they are doing. Present a big smile =). You may not be at all interested, but it will say a lot about you if you show people in general that no matter what they do, you are happy for them as long as they are happy.

4.  THEY CLAIM TO BE THE BEST - Let's face it, no one will ever be the best...FOREVER. There are a lot of great products and services out there, so claiming that your product is the best is selfish and biased. As a network marketing professional, it's all about finding out what people want and helping them learn how your product can help them. Get rid of all the upfront mumbo jumbo about why they should do this or take that, and start making it about them first. When you help people learn how it can benefit them in the best way possible, then you've done your job. If you are in the networking field, just know that your products and services will not be for everyone, and that's ok =). It's about creating the BEST experience. People will always remember how they were treated!

If you are on the other end, I would simply ask this person who is trying to share their product or service with you how they think it would benefit you, and how it has made an impact in their life. It's a way start to a great conversation, and even if you don't buy anything, it may lead to a new friendship, and that's really what it's all about......creating relationships and life experiences.

It's not about the money, it's about the relationships and the experiences that you create

5.  NON-PROFESSIONAL - Everything that is annoying about what Network Marketers do is based on them being a professional or an amateur. When we all start something such as a hobby, career, etc. we always start from square one. It's the part that we all hate to do because it is so tedious and HARD! But this is how we all grow to become what we will one day become, a PRO at becoming a success in our own life. If you are a network marketer, I encourage you to keep on truckin and learning from the people who have made it before you, because trust me, they will help you. That's the most amazing thing about the MLM business, it's really about people helping people. Get rid of the toxic people who don't support you, and focus on the people who do. You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with, so if you want success, be picky who you hang out with, it will make a huge difference!

If you're on the other end, then I encourage you respect people just like you would like to be respected. You don't have to buy products, you don't have to read annoying Facebook posts, you don't have to do anything, but be super nice, smile and have an incredible day =).

About me: I'm just a guy who decided to make some changes in my life to become a better father to my daughter. Beachbody Coaching helped me get my fit life back, become an entrepreneur, and live my passions through helping others, now I'm just paying it forward.

The people I constantly surrounded myself with made the most impact
