It is true I had the privilege to attend the last GoPro Recruiting Mastery with Eric Worre... in the photo to the right with me!
I seriously did not know what to expect at this conference. I had read GoPro and I understood the premiss of becoming a professional network marketer. Let's face it, I have been one for the past several years I just didn't know it. I have nearly 3,000 contacts in my phone and I have been a professional connector for nearly three decades. People call me when ever they need to connect to someone, and why do they do that... because they know me. They know the people I work with, the people I know and the integrity I bring to the table. I only work with people that have the same sense of integrity in everything they do, as I do.
I am not saying that I am perfect, none of us are, however the integrity comes into play when we mess up, when we drop the ball, when we are just plane human. How do you get into integrity with someone. You do the right thing, you man up and admit you messed up and make it right.
It is the same in any business and any profession. And, now I understand Network Marketing is a profession and needs to be treated as such. You, the people around us and I, have to remember we have to have integrity with our business, with our company and with our team. What we do is a direct reflection on who we are. If you want to build your team with integrity then you have to be in integrity yourself.
Are you inspiring leaders in your business or are you pushing them away? Are you someone people will want to follow or someone people will want to run away from? You have to ask yourself... are you acting like a professional or not.
Eric talked about the event as being a tipping point for the profession of network marketing and I whole heartily believe what he is saying is already coming true. Soon when people ask you want you do and you will tell them you are a professional network marketer they will ask you to tell them more. I personally witnessed this. One of the young men on my team and I were making a stop in a local market before calling it a day. Two young people greeted us with samples of some very delicious products. Of course we had to try the samples. One thing led to the another and a conversation ensued (prospecting). Pretty soon we were exchanging email's and phone numbers. The young lady asked the young man next to me what he did for a living... he proudly answered "I am a professional network marketer." And, yes he read Go Pro. The young women immediately asked him for his phone number and wanted to know if it was oaky for her to call him about that. The tipping point is already happening. We are the messengers, we have to be proud of what we do and realize that this truly is a profession and one of the strongest business models out there.
Thanks to Eric Worre and his vision for you and me and our profession!
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
