Your goal should be to build your people up to at least a $5,000 a
year income as quickly as possible. This $5,000 a year is what I
consider the point past break even for most distributorships.
They'll need that much to buy their marketing materials, finance
their self-development program and attend the functions. Once you
can get them to this level, It doesn't cost them anything to work
the business, and anything they do from that point on will put them
into profit. The secret is keeping people in the system for two
years. Once they are in for this long - they know too much to ever
go back.

Here’s what we recommend that you start with:

* Hobby (5-10 hours per week)
* Part-Time (10-25 hours per week)
* Full-Time (30-40+ hours per week)

I don't disagree that there should be a monetary goal, after all it is suppose to be a business.

How do you get your people to that amount? In what time frame do you set to accomplish your goal?

Hi Allen,

It all depends on how much that individual can work the business. If they can give me a 5 hours a week. I can easily make them $500-$1000 a month. That's 6k to 12k a year, but with promotions...I can get them way pass that.

Just a little off topic -

I believe that you can produce those results for your people. I think it is realistic for many biz opps in the market today.

I guess my question would be is why do you think the failure rate is so high, knowing the possibilities.

I guess I would say, that people simply choose not to do the work. the networking company works, just the people don't work their network. I think most people are lazy in nature and want things w/ out doing anything. I believe you have to do something to get something. And I also believe it's all about the numbers, really anything is. If people are willing to work the numbers they can make anything work.

I have to agree with your evaluation, although it pains me to watch good people waste any good opportunity.

I guess that old saying about leading a horse to water applies here as well.

I disagree that most people are lazy. I think instead that often people enter an opportunity with the wrong mindset, and sometimes it is the recruiters fault. Often network marketers give the impression that achieving a certain amount of income is easy in their opportunity (no selling, no prospecting, no cold calls, etc.). This reels the prospect in, and then later reality sets in that they will have to do certain job functions that they are conditioned to have an aversion to (i.e. approaching people). These mental blocks keep the prospect from working their business appropriately. JMHO
