Do You Need An Education in Network Marketing?
If you were offered the opportunity to enjoy genuine happiness, radiant health, and real security would you grasp it? No doubt you would. However, you may say: ‘this is all very fine, but does such opportunity really exist?’ Yes, it does.
The value of education is widely recognized today. Many people equate education with success, prestige, and good income. Thus they are willing to spend much time, and money in getting a good education. For example, in the Orient many parents work very hard in order to send their children to expensive private schools, and universities. The children themselves study day, and night to do well in examinations with the aim of getting a good education. This, in turn, may enable them to obtain a well-paying job, and to get ahead in the world. On the other hand, some seek higher education to equip themselves for greater service to their fellowman.
In Network Marketing, it seems that everyone signs up as a “professional” before they’ve even been trained! If you want to become a lawyer, do you pay $50, and suddenly you are practicing law, figuring out how to do the job successfully and provide good service as you go? It is even silly to think that this is the case. It is ludicrous to even suggest it. How could you ever expect yourself to succeed?
The benefit of Network Marketing is that everyone that comes in can work at his or her own pace. If you are on fire, a go-getter, and embark on a crash-course, you may break all company records without ever having four years of undergraduate college, and three years in professional school. There’s no formal structure to prevent you from proceeding at the pace you choose.
Still even in Network Marketing, education still needs to take place. It’s great that you can earn as you learn, but this isn’t a business for which every person that signs up can show up, and do well. Often people feel bad if they don’t succeed quickly. The business seems to be so simple, but if they aren’t earning, it must not be for them. But would you quit law school because you got a C on your first exam? No, you would not; you might feel some anxiety, but you’d meet with your instructor, and figure out what you missed, and how to be better prepared for the next exam. If a new team member hasn’t seen much success in the first six months, remind him/her that there’s a genuine learning curve, and help him/her discover where they are not making the grade.
Therefore, you might ask yourself, ‘What kind of education should I obtain in order to make my life a success?’
