What To Do When There Are Too Many Hotel Meetings
Today I want to talk about the biggest controversial topic in building network marketing - too many meetings.
Do you find yourself saying, "It's not working out for me - it's affecting my life, my relationship with my family. I quit. I quit, it's not for me."?
In this episode of Benjamin Pang LIVE, I'm going to share with you what to try and what you want to do before you actually decide that this industry is not for you.
How to recruit more reps
Even If You Work Full Time
If you work full time like me, and is seriously looking for a way to recruit more reps and sell more products with the limited time you have, this training will absolutely change your business.
You will learn how to leverage proven but little known marketing strategies to help explode your business.
Here's what you need to do before you give up...
What's Your Why
Number one - If you're thinking about quitting, too many meetings, coming out every single night is a waste of time - think about why you started a network marketing business.
Most of the time we are in network marketing to get time freedom or to get financial freedom.
How Much Time Do You Want To Invest
Number two - no matter what kind of business you run. You need to put time in. It doesn't matter what you do, you have to put time in.
You have to put time into running a restaurant. You have to be there sometime. You have to talk to the supplier. You have to put time into building your business.
How much time are you willing to invest and what do you want to do with the time? It's up to you. Because it's your business.
In network marketing nobody is going to hold your hand, even though your upline's probably going to say, "Yeah, come out." - "Why are you not coming out?" - "Why are you not going to the training?" -"Why are you not coming out to this and that?"
Bottom line is, it's your business. It's your business and no matter what other people tell you, you have to think what's best for yourself.
So, how much time? If it's three hours a week, including traveling, so be it. If it's four hours, then set a four hour time frame in building your business.
What Produces the Most Results
Number three is to determine what produces the most results in your business.
There's an 80/20 rule in EVERY business. What is the 20% of tasks that you do which produce 80% of your results?
If you are spending an hour traveling to the meeting and an hour back, two hours total, what are you going to do with that two hours? Can you make use of it?
If you cannot and you're wasting that two hours, then it's not wise to travel two hours to a meeting.
You really have to think about what is that 20% that will produce 80% of your results. And write it down.
Tell your upline that traveling twice a week to attend the meeting is not feasible because you're wasting all this time. Then think of a solution.
I'll be real with you. I work in the financial industry. I work ten, twelve hours a day. I'm still in the office and I'm doing Facebook live. I have many excuses not to do what I need to do in my business.
I work in IT. I'm a programmer and I face the computer all day long. After work, when am I going to put my time towards my business?
Whenever you say, "I'm tired after work." "I just don't feel like doing it.", the first thing is to think about why you started the business because you need to have your why, that vision of where you want to go and that will push you forward.
Building a business is not going to be easy, especially if you're changing your daily routine. Think about your family. You want to spend more time with them. And NOW your business is worth it.
It's worth it to put time in because you want what you can get out of the business, which is financial freedom or time freedom.
When you start seeing potential in the business you automatically put more time in. If you see that somebody started after you, and is making so much more money than you, you probably get irritated.
You might think, "I've been lazy and instead of four hours, now I'm going to put six hours or eight hours." This is what you should expect. You should expect that you're going to gradually put more time in into your business.
Ask yourself this question, in your full time job, how much time are you putting in to that 9 to 5?
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone!
You have to step up the game a little bit and kind of improve your mind, step out of your comfort zone, if you want to make a five or six figure income from your network marketing business.
I'm not going to tell you to spend another nine hours in your network marketing business per day. But I am telling you, at least put more time in so that you will see that your business is going to grow faster!
If you grow faster, it's easier because you see the momentum, you see the results, people are excited.
People are more excited if they see, "Oh wow, they just started and the next week there's another partner below them started because they just recruited somebody new."
The momentum is fast growing, it's going to increase your team morale! That's the bottom line.
You're going to increase your time that you put into your business, because in any business, it doesn't make sense to make a five figure income if you just put in four hours a week.
It's going to take you a lot of time, maybe like five, ten years to build up that income, but growing slowly - it's going to be a torture to you!
Before You Quit, Remember This
Three things that I'm going to repeat.
Think about why you started your business.
Think about how much time you're willing to put into your business at the beginning. (No matter how much your upline is going to push you to do, think about what's feasible to yourself.)
Number three is think about what's that 20% that will produce 80% of the result and focus on it.
It's really about communication. If my people, if my team cannot devote that time, like ten hours a week into the business, I'm not going to push them.
They haven't seen the light yet. But my duty is to keep them on track and see that they can actually achieve more in their business.
Is this helpful? Now you will know what to try instead of quitting because of too many meetings!
Feel free to share with your team so they can be more productive in their businesses as well 😉
Hope to see you in the next training, and have a good day!
