3 MLM Tips – from an Astronaut!

drew-with-astronautPeople ask me all the time how to make money in network marketing. Here are 3 MLM tips and techniques that you must know if you want to get more leads, recruit more reps and make more money.
Here we are on the VIP tour at NASA and learned some killer business ideas – from one of the astronauts. These strategies, that he learned in space – are great MLM tips that you can use for building your network marketing business, or any business.
In this video I interview mastermind trainer and coach Ray Higdon…

MLM Tips Summary

1) 85% of the fuel is used upon takeoff. Wow. What a lesson. The rocket makes it 1/12 of its journey, with 85% fuel. That means it “coasts” on 15% fuel for 11/12 of the journey. Same Thing in business. In network marketing it takes most of the energy to launch. Ten years ago I gave networking a full throttle push … And that “launch” has given me a thriving business today.
2) Make Quick Decisions – our astronaut talked about the speed of the rocket ship and how many decisions have to be made… And made quickly. He even referenced business. He said that in business too many people hem and haw and take their time and lose out on opportunities. He learned from being a pilot in the Marine Core, and a crew member on a rocket ship, that he conditioned himself to make quick decisions… In the rocket, in life … And in business.
3) Teamwork – Bob, our astronaut, said that on launch… hundreds are involved. Most importantly, when launching into space, you can rely and trust your crew. One of my favorite MLM tips is to trust your team, trust your upline, and trust your crew.
I try to learn techniques and strategies everywhere I go, so I can share them with you.

    Great tips, Drew! The start up of networking marketing requires much effort. Unfortunate many give up before reaping the benefits of the effort.
