10 things get you up and running

3. While starting with the people you know, start thinking about what you are going to do once you’ve gone through everyone you know. Many people get stuck at this step and once they’ve gone through everyone they know, they don’t know how to propsect for new leads to talk to and end up quitting the business. You can get many ideas and suggestions right here on this discussion board.
4. Plug into every event and tool your company makes available. If they have conference calls, trainings, conventions, etc, make it your business to be there.
5. Commit to your personal development. Make sure you are reading positive books like “Think & Grow Rich” and “How to Win Friends & Influence People” as well as listening to good CDs. Attend a seminar about communication, network marketing, sales, etc, something related to your business at least once a quarter.
6. Figure out what your monthly budget is going to be and stick to it. Understand that unless you have success right away, it may take you a while to become profitable. Very important, do not buy more inventory than you can realistically move just to qualify for a certain level. That’s a great way to lose money fast and be out of this business.
7. Expose as many people to your products/services and business as possible. 80% of your time should be spent exposing someone to your products/services and/or your business opportunity.
8. Don’t listen to your friends, family and neighbors that say it won’t work, especially if they are not making a six or seven figure annual income AND they have the time freedom to be able to enjoy that income.
9. Get to know as many people in your upline as possible. Take advantage of them. However, if your upline isn’t good, don’t use that as an excuse to quit. Obviously someone is having success in the company. Find them and work with them.
10. The only reason why you should quit is if your company goes out of business, you tried it for five years consistently and are not seeing the results you are looking for, or you are satisfied with the residual income you are generating and you are ready to retire.
