The Main Purpose for a Christian to Build a Network Marketing Business

The Main Purpose for a Christian to Build a Network Marketing Business
God wants to free our schedules so we have time to listen to Him. One of the things He desires to tell us is where He wants us to serve Him each day. He does not want us to be so preoccupied with making money that we don’t have time to sit and listen to where HE wants to use us and it what specific way on any particular day.

For most of us, our lives are currently so stressed out that we have no time to care for our physical health, which in turn creates chaos in our mental, emotional and spiritual life. God knows we need money in this world in order to not just survive from day to day, but also to thrive. We can’t get anything or go anywhere unless we have money, but working a full-time job in order to make that money has been creating lifestyles that are way too hectic. 

The majority of us feel that spending time with God is a waste of time because it’s not creating an income to care for ourselves and our family, but taking Him out of our life has created emotional and mental chaos. Coming to God with the intent of listening to Him and asking Him where He wants us to serve Him each day is the most important activity we can do. 

We must learn to quiet our hearts and minds and listen intently to His voice. At first it may feel awkward and others may make us feel like it’s a waste of time, but once we surrender ourselves completely to Him and build an intimate relationship with Him, that time with Him will be the time we most look forward to each day. We will crave time alone where we can simply sit in silence, listening to His still voice; we will no longer feel bored when we have to wait in line, or in a dentist office, or in a court room when we are called in for jury duty at a specific time for several days or weeks, etc. 

So how can we bring in a great income without working a full-time job or as  business owners with the intent of making it thrive? The answer lies in the network marketing profession. 

Before you dismiss me, listen up for a moment. I am not asking you to become sales people for a specific company nor to be talking incessantly about a specific product line. I’m also not going to ask you to recruit leaders so that you can be compensated monetarily by the company you choose to represent. That should never be our main objective. 

The main goal of the network marketing profession, aka MLM, is to create a LIFESTYLE in which we do not have to worry about money ever again. We will be able to live wherever we want to live without worrying that won’t have the money to do so. We will be able to travel if we desire. We will be able to have time to take care of ourselves physically - we will have time to dedicate to exercise, to fix and eat nutritious meals, and to get enough rest during the day and sleep at night - so that we will not be physically, mentally and emotionally drained all the time. And, of course, we will have time to sit and listen to God in whatever setting we prefer (at home, on a walk, at the beach, out fishing, camping, etc) and pursue an intimate relationship with Him; we will have time to sit quietly and listen to His instructions so we can joyfully serve Him in a specific way on any specific day without any time constraint or conflict. 

As we share our experiences with the products we use from the specific network marketing company with which we choose to partner, we help others create their own memberships. If they choose to do the same thing, then we are effectively building a business that requires very little time from us and the company will compensate us all monetarily. 

However, I must admonish you to NOT pursue this as your full-time career right away. It’s important that you invest money from the way you currently make money right now (and even if that is currently unemployment money you get from the government) and, as your income surpasses what you need each month to live, then let go of the other ways you make money. 
The time it will take for you to create an income that surpasses what you are currently making will vary tremendously, but as long as you don’t quit, you will be create an income that surpasses your expectations. 

Your main goal must always be to create a lifestyle that is peaceful and that frees up your time so that you can pursue what God desires you to do every day, which will vary since there is so much He wants to do in this world. 

He wants you to be healthy in every area of your life, so He wants you to create a lifestyle where you have the time to take good care of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally; through this ideal lifestyle you will be able to do so, so pursue it because it is most definitely attainable. Therefore, pick to partner with a network marketing company that offers products that are of very high quality and will enhance that healthy lifestyle

As you share your experience about the products from the company with which you chose to partner, do so with the intent of helping them know that these products exist and that they can get them as well; let them know the company will ship the products directly to their house, which is definitely a time saver - it’s time we can use doing other more important things. Once they receive the products and realize that the products truly do help enhance their life, ask them to please share their experiences as well so that people that they know can know that these products exist and they can purchase them in the same way as they are doing. As you all do this, each of your individual businesses grows, and therefore your income grows. One day you will receive a check that will help you be extremely grateful that you did this because now you will not have to ever worry about money again, and you have been able to create a very peaceful lifestyle where you could pursue your passions and desires God placed on your heart, while at the same time taking good care of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, by creating and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits.

5 Tips to Help You Succeed in Your Young Living Business

5 Tips to Help You Succeed in Your Young Living Business

How to Succeed in Your Young Living Business

 The network marketing profession offers us a different way of building a business, but it’s a profession nonetheless, and as such, we need to get educated in order to succeed. We are willing to empower you to succeed, but you need to be willing to follow these five rules of success, written up by Royal Crown Diamond leader Debra Rayburn:

 

 1. Use products daily - That is why we need to be on the Essential Rewards Program to get the products (and we Young Living rewards us for the commitment!) and use them daily. You don’t have to use all of them, but make sure you try out many of them and decide which ones will become your favorites, your home staples. They have many categories to choose from - check it out online or in a catalog you can flip through.

 

 2. Maintain a min of 100 PV monthly. That is the requirement Young Living has for all leaders, regardless of our rank! You can be at Royal Crown Diamond and that still will be your requirement, but I guarantee you that if you absolutely love the products, you are going to really get into the Young Living brand so much that you will spend a lot more that $100 a month because you are simply swapping out your 'old' products and trading them for this brand, which actually enhances your health physically, mentally and emotionally! And guess what? Young Living actually gives us free stuff every month if our orders reach either 195, 250 or 300 PV. You can try out new stuff that way too, or if you already have it, you can gift it to someone else so they can be blessed as well. 

 

3. Learn about products and business constantly. In any profession we need to get educated. However, in this type of profession, we are not required to take out a student loan in order to pay thousands of dollars in school books and get a four to ten-year career going. We learn at home, at our own pace. We do, nevertheless, need to constantly motivate ourselves to be learning through books, videos, or webinars and we should commit to attend at least one corporate Young Living event, or one put on by a Royal Crown Diamond in the company.

 

4. Share on a consistent basis. If you just keep all you learn to yourself because you’re too scared someone may look at you weird or reject your new way of living and doing business, then you are not going to get far in this business. Just share in any way you feel comfortable doing; you don’t have to hold classes nor throw product parties if you don’t want to do so and/or if you don’t have the time. Just share one on one with a friend or two without trying to convince them of anything, but just giving them the opportunity to join and get the products themselves, or even join you in this great business venture you started pursuing. 

 

5. Be persistent; never quit. Always remember, you will not reach your destination if you quit your journey along the way. This is not a race! It’s a journey that is filled with adventure, lessons, and challenges along the way. Are you willing to commit wholeheartedly to it?

 

How long it will take you to reach the top…. it’s hard to know. Everyone’s journey is different. We all have different lessons to learn, and some of us have to learn more lessons than others. Some will reach the top in one to five years, but for many others, it may take over a decade. However, if you learn to love the products and keep persevering, you WILL reach Royal Crown Diamond one day, just as Debra Raybern and many others have done.


Not that many reach the top, only about 6%, but it’s not because they can’t, it’s because they quit after a while, for one reason or another. They allow the challenges to stop them. If you want to succeed, you must never, ever quit. Focus on having a heart to serve others out of love by sharing your story and experiences with others as often as you can, always desiring them to live a healthy lifestyle, just like you are.

 

We are willing to empower you, but you must be willing to commit to keep going and keep following these five rules of success, passing them on to others that want to join our team with you as their sponsor.

5 Traits of an Exemplary Network Marketing Leader

A true leader has certain traits that attract us to him or her, regardless of what rank they have achieved. This blog covers five very important ones:

1. Be enthusiastic, not simply excited

Excitement about a company and/or product will eventually wear off as time goes by and challenges rear their head. However, enthusiasm keeps us going regardless of how long we are on our journey to the top, and in spite of rejection and other hardships. Aim to cultivate enthusiasm early on in your network marketing career by constantly staying in learning mode and experiencing more and more products, not just your “basic few” to keep you afloat. If you become disappointed in the products, then switch companies until you find the “perfect ones” for your lifestyle, but never give up on this profession.

2. Be passionate and driven

When we are passionate about a product or company we can’t help but share because we know that the opportunity they offer us is out of this world. We know that there is something about the products that make them stand out above all others, and we are constantly understanding more and more why you have this feeling deep inside that you should continue to use them and tells others about them. Our passion and enthusiasm drive us to the top, but we enjoy the journey one day at a time.

3. Always be willing to learn, regardless of what rank you’ve achieved

The majority believe that we can’t learn anything from someone that ranks below us, and also that if we have achieved the highest rank we don’t need to learn anything new. We made it there, so we can stop learning now. However, a true leader is humble and realizes that they can always learn something from every single person, so they continue to attend seminars and listen intently to the speakers, as well as to people in the company that are striving to be excellent leaders. They know that all of us can always improve in some way every single day. We will never achieve the tip top of our wisdom and knowledge. 

4. Be an encourager
Every one of us needs encouragement from time to time. We will feel that the journey is just too hard at times, but when we read or hear an encouraging post or speech, we will realize that we simply have lost our focus along the way. We need someone there that will motivate, inspire and encourage us to refocus and stay on track. This leads us to our final trait.

5. Learn to persevere

Only about 3% of us will stay the course. Perseverance is hard if we feel that we are doing all the right things, but are not moving forward very fast. We get discouraged and start listening to those voices of others, or that are in our own head, that we will never make it; that we have given it all we got and that success in this area is just not meant for us. Don’t listen to those lies! Keep going. Learn to persevere and you will eventually reach the top. If God put that dream in our heart, He will make sure that it becomes a reality, but He never tells us exactly when this will happen. Trust His timing and continue to be enthusiastic, passionate and driven, always willing to learn and relearn things, and encouraging others you meet along your journey. Learn to persevere with an attitude of thankfulness for having been given this wonderful opportunity that makes no distinction between race, gender, educational level and social class.
