Champion Network Marketing Truth Revealed On Necessity Of Team Today

A champion network marketing truth revealed is the following: Nobody can build this business by themselves, it does not only take a downline to build a business but a mastermind team as well or else a person goes nowhere fast. Henry Ford did not know how to build the car all by himself. He masterminded with Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and Luther Burbank. They were people whom he felt that he could use the knowledge what they shared with him. Be careful whom you mastermind with. There is an old saying, if you are in network marketing then mastermind with millionaires NOT with people who are making $30,000 and are in debt up to their eyeballs! Reggie Liggins describes how a team wins a basketball championship and he applies this principle to network marketing!


The Ninth Step toward Riches

"...a group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony, will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery."

"When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in Harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes available to every individual brain in the group."

"This principle is available to you!"
~ Napoleon Hill, "Think and Grow Rich" Chapter 10

As part of the Mentoring for Free recipe, the seekers of the secrets to success in Network Marketing are entitled to a coaching call with the Mentoring for Free founder, Michael Dlouhy. Once during every one of these calls that I have been on, Michael has been sure to tell those seeking knowledge that they cannot do this business by themselves. He tells them that not only do they need a mentor, they need a team. Why a team? Whatever happened to "if it's meant to be, it's up to me"?

I am sure there are some superstars who can probably build a huge team based solely on their ability to recruit, but those people are very rare, and the teams they build rarely last. That is because the super recruiter rarely builds lasting relationships. But I think a better example of the need for a team can be found in the world of sports.

I am a big basketball fan, I love the game. One of my favorite players of all time is Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt was the only player in NBA history to score 100 points in a game. A phenomenal player. However, he had the misfortune of playing in the era of Bill Russell and the Boston Celtics. While Bill was a great player in his own right, he was not as big, and nowhere near as talented as Wilt. Wilt was the best player in the league, but Bill played on the better team. And those Celtics played like a team, and as a result won a record 8 championships in a row during Wilt's reign as the best player. I think it is ironic that the only championship that Wilt won, with the Lakers, was when he finally agreed to sacrifice his scoring for the benefit of the team.

Michael Jordon, arguably the greatest player in history, could not win a playoff series until he had a true team around him. He is one of the greatest scorers of all time. But I can think of a couple of championship series that were won because Michael passed the ball to an open teammate instead of trying to take the game winning shot himself. And each time, his teammate came through. Kobe Bryant, one of the greatest players in this era, is now facing losing season after losing season because he doesn't have a talented team around him.

I guess what I am trying to say is, I don't care how great you may be or think you are, you need other people to be successful at anything. Not only do you need a team, you need a coach, you need a mentor. Les Brown says that, "You can't see the picture if you're in the frame". Proverbs 21:2 basically says that every man is right in his own eyes. But our eyes aren't objective when we look at our own performance. You need to have honest feedback in order to make course corrections. And we all have something that may need correcting. But hey, Tiger Woods needs a coach. Michael Jordan needed a coach. Because even when you are really good, you can be better. This is especially true if the coach you choose has done what you have set out to do.

We are really fortunate here at Mentoring for Free because we have great coaches here with Michael Dlouhy, Ken Klemm, Brian Redding and all of the other senior mentors. We also have an incredible team of marketers from all around the world, each with unique gifts and strengths. And all together we make up an awesome Mastermind Group, encouraging each other, learning from each other, and helping each other along that road to success. If I stumble, I know one of my friends here will catch me before I fall. If I need wisdom, I can find it here. If I need help with my marketing, I can find it here. If I just need a pat on the back, I can find it here. And yes, if I need a kick in the pants, I can find that here as well (thanks Brian). It is actually good to know that I don't have to do this alone.

And neither do you. As Hill said in the last quote above in the intro, the Mastermind principle is available to you...right here at Mentoring for Free!

Peace and Prosperity,

  1. Thanks for sharing. Your opening sentence says it all in that we cannot build this business alone. It truly takes teamwork. It is vitally important in my opinions to help others along the way, because in doing so you build valuable relationships, which is most important in building an online business.

  2. You are welcome Nathaniel. Teamwork is the key and if you find out what people want and help them get it over and over again, then you will get what you want.
