Be a Network Marketing Magnet

I mentioned in my last blog that I was currently reading the Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. I haven’t always been an advocate of self development. And I sure wish I would have listened to how important it is when I first began my Network Marketing journey. Lots of frustration and hard times could have been avoided.


This year, I have increased my commitment to this part of my life. Self development has always been a weekly activity. This year, it’s a daily activity. And yes, it might just be 5 minutes, but I have made the commitment because it such an important part of not only my business, but my personal and social life.


I find myself applying so many of the things I have learned every single day. And it has made a difference in my marriage, my role as a mother and friend. It really has transformed my way of thinking and acting.

The last chapter I read in the Go-Giver talked about putting others first. Yes, we have all heard it before. But I want you to really think about it. Put other people’s interests first and your interests will be taken care of. The network marketing industry is about helping people and helping achieve what they want.


And as you begin to do this on a day to day basis, you will begin to grow a network –a network of people. Yes, many of these people will never buy from you or join you, but that is okay. But by serving others, you will become a magnet and attract those that are looking for you and your help.

Think about your current mentors in this industry. What attracted them to you? Didn’t they have a “magnetic” affect on you? Their willingness to help, share and to put you first, just pulled you in and made you hungry for their knowledge. Were they magnetizing? Yes, the people who have succeeded in this industry really are magnetic.

So, begin your magnetic process today! Put other’s interest first and see what happens.


BELIEVE Success!

It has been said to succeed in network marketing most people need a crash course in personal development and marketing.

Hey Lisa,
I have just started my journey into the world of Network Marketing and I have over a short period of time have aquired so much valuable knowledge from so many others before me. You a right on about personal developement and giving to others before yourself. I've also learned that Mindset plays such an important part in the life of a Network Marketer.
Thanks again for such valuable information.
Be Well,
Bill Stafford
