The Price Of The Promise
The Power Of Network Marketing
Mark Yarnell, minister in a small town in Texas, was headed for
bankruptcy and just about to lose his car and home. He looked for a
way out and discovered network marketing. Luckily, he had a wise
The sponsor gave Mark "THE PROMISE". "This business can set you
free financially in one to three years." But he also gave him "THE
PRICE" "To succeed, you will have to face and conquer 4 major
Mark said, "It's a deal."
Mark began by inviting 200 friends over to his house to watch a
video. 80 said "No, not interested"
- Mark had encountered ENEMY #1: Rejection.
He thought, "No problem. My sponsor warned me about that. I've
got120 people still coming over." Guess what?
- He had just encountered ENEMY #2: Deception.
Mark thought, "No problem. My sponsor warned me about that.
I've got 70 people who watched the tape." Guess what? 57 said "Not
- He had just encountered ENEMY #3: Apathy.
Undaunted, Mark thought, "No problem. 13 people signed up."
Guess what? 12 of them dropped out of the business shortly
- He had just encountered ENEMY #4: Attrition.
Attrition had left Mark with just one serious associate. But to this
day, that single distributor earns Mark over $50,000 per month.
Mark Yarnell's story is NOT Unique!
You may have heard of Bill Britt, one of the most successful
distributors in Amway. Some years ago, 20/20 did a feature story
on Amway. They spent 19 minutes interviewing whiners and
complainers - several distributors who had failed and showed the
garages full of products they couldn't sell. During the last minute of
the show, Mr. Britt was interviewed in front of his palatial home. He
was asked, "Mr. Britt, this business has obviously worked for you.
What's your secret?"
He replied, "There is no secret. I simply showed the plan to 1200
people. 900 said, 'No' and only 300 signed up. Out of those 300,
only 85 did anything at all. Out of those 85 only 35 were serious,
and out of those 35, 11 made me a millionaire." Like Mark
Yarnell, Bill worked through the numbers.
Jason Boreyko, former co-founder of New Vision, told this story
recently. When he was a distributor in Matol, he signed up 50
people. He heard a lot of "No's" on the way to those 50. Jason took
one man, who he knew would be terrific in the business to lunch,
told him about the business and the man said "No." Jason took the
man to lunch again the next month and told him the updates. Once
again the man said, "No." Jason sent him some more information
and took him to lunch again the next month. And again the man
said, "No." That went on for six months. The seventh month,
something had changed for the man, and he said, "Yes." That
man made Jason over one million dollars. Jason also worked
through his numbers.
According to Richard Poe in Wave Three while starting Amway,
Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel, America's eleventh richest people,
recruited 500 people. 495 dropped out. The five that didn't quit
built Amway. All $7 billion of Amway's business was built under
those 5 people. Jay and Rich had to work through their numbers.
There are many similar stories. Jeff, the top money earner in
Mannatech, signed up 27 people his first month.
One might think that he is especially talented at sponsoring.
Actually, Jeff will be the first to tell you that he is not talented
In fact, he feels that he did very poorly. To recruit those 27, Jeff
talked to 2000 people that first month. And of the 27, the only one
who did anything significant with the business was Ray Gebauer,
who has more than half of Mannatech in his downline.
Jeff's word to you is that the numbers never lie. Pick your goal and
then get into massive action. If you talk to enough people, you will
Here's the lesson: Your success is directly related to the degree to
which you are willing to work to find others like yourself who are
committed to succeed. Mark Yarnell's odds were 1 out of 50. (Jeff's
were really 1 out of 2000.) Would you be willing to go through 200
people to find the 1 who will make you $50,000 a month? Or go
through 200 people to become a millionaire? Or hear uncounted
"No's" to sign up 50 people to find a million dollar person? I hope
you will. It's easier when you know the odds up front.
But here's the catch: You have your own set of odds and you won't
know what they are until AFTER YOU'VE SUCCEEDED. So if you've
gone through 50 or 100 people and you haven't found 1 serious
person yet, you can either give up and assume the business doesn't
work or recognize that you are working through your own numbers.
Are you willing to find out what your own set of odds is?
That means that you must pay the price for freedom. Remember
that the numbers never fail you. Despite where you are in your skill
level, your success is assured if you talk to enough people. And as
your skill improves, so will your odds.
There is no such thing as luck in this industry. Winning big is a
matter of being willing to pay the price.
Your future is in your hands!
The choices which you make today will determine the course of
your entire future.
May you have a Successful Future in all aspects of Your Life.
