Here is what most MLMer’s are notorious for. They work really hard in the fall and Christmas season. They are so exhausted by Christmas time that they take January and February off and do almost nothing. By March they are starting to get back into it again and by May are starting to see some results. Then June hits and ‘Oh well’ it’s summer and I have too many other things I want to do like going to the beach and vacation and then nothing gets done. By the end of the summer they need money because their business has dropped off and they start the cycle all over again.
Wouldn’t be great if you just continually grew your business over the whole year and then just take several wonderful vacations throughout the year?
There is also the misconception that no one joins a MLM company in the summer so why bother even trying. If that were true then most companies would go out of business. Summer can be a slower time (because almost no one is recruiting), but that doesn’t mean that it is impossible to recruit someone. I do some of my best recruiting in the summer because people are more relaxed and less rushed.
Here is another thing to think about. Loss of momentum. If you truly want to build a business that is going to support you financially then you need to create momentum so that you move up levels. Stopping and starting your business over and over again causes you to…
1. Never get to the point where you hit momentum and make real money.
2. Every time you do it you actually get farther behind and it takes longer to just get to the point where you were when you stopped.
So what can you do? I know that you want to enjoy your summer. Who doesn’t? But did you realize that you can easily incorporate your business into your summer activities and that in many ways it is easier because you are around so many people?
When you got to the parks and beaches and stores, just make a point of talking to a couple of people about your business. That’s it. If you do you will have recruits throughout the whole summer and you will start off your fall way ahead.
I am a numbers person and love to see the results of things numerically. So think about this.
Say in June, July and August you talk to 2 people a day and recruit 6 people over the summer and let’s say that you earn $20/month from each person. Between September and December you will earn almost $500 from those six people alone. Wouldn’t an extra $500 at Christmas time be nice and that is only if those six people don’t recruit anyone. What if 3 of them just recruited 1 person? That is now 9 people and $700 extra dollars in your pocket by December.
You don’t have to make it difficult, you just have to be consistent. Take the opportunities that come along and just TALK TO PEOPLE and see the results. You will be glad you did.
“Kim, that’s great but I don’t know what to say to people.” I understand. I was the same way for a very long time.
Well I have good news for you. I am working on a project and it will be released in the next couple of weeks that is going to teach you step by step how to recruit people including what to say. So watch out for it.
To a spring and summer filled with consistency, momentum, results and success,
