Happy New Year!
It’s easy to know the right thing to do after something has happened, but it’s hard – no, it’s impossible – to predict the future. That’s the meaning of “hindsight is 20/20”.
Sure, we all can see what successes – and flops – we had in 2019 (or even earlier). All we can do is make smart decisions that will help bring ourselves, our families, our faith and our businesses forward in a positive way.
There is no competition among us as network marketers. We are the best of entrepreneurs because our businesses are built on the support and building up of others and, by doing so, supporting ourselves.
Since it is January, that famous time for resolutions that we are determined to break the minute January 1st is over. I’d like to propose a few resolutions for network marketers that should be easy to keep as businesspersons, in 2020:
- Work on my business every day, even if it is just for a little while. That could mean sending out letters, flyers or emails, or giving out business cards
- Get organized – what does your office look like when you are NOT working?
- Keep better track of expenses and income and know when spending money on your business is a good idea, and when you might just be wasting precious resources
- Try something new – a new program, a new marketing idea – to move the needle a bit
- Set realistic goals – this is a business not a “get rich quick” scheme. You are in it for the long haul
- Stop jumping from program to program – stick with something long enough, using the resolutions above
- Go all in – even if you do this part-time, do the things you need to do to become full-time at network marketing
I will be taking this list and hanging it on my wall to remind myself every day of the important elements of my business. CLICK HERE FOR YOUR COPY. (You’re welcome!)
By the way, if you are a part-timer, don’t look at network marketing as a “hobby”. Hobbyists see themselves “making a few bucks”New Years Resolutions 2020. I don’t have to tell you, but that mentality will never make you truly successful.
I’d just like to take this last moment to wish everyone a very wonderful holiday season, and a more than profitable 2020. You deserve all good things in life, and we can do that together!
