Network Marketing Training - To Buy or Not to Buy?

Are you overwhelmed, confused, disappointed ... and still broke?

Are you paying too much for too little?

Do you feel you've been lied to?

You are not alone!

There are a lot of network marketing training products out there. If you are like me, you want to grow your business and you look for training that will help you achieve your goals. You may take the advice of your upline or mentors in your current company -or- you may even search the web for experts and gurus for help to achieve your goals.

After you plunk down your hard-earned cash and receive that super-duper training product (the one guaranteed to provide the answers you've been looking for), were you disappointed? Sometimes it seem like what you bought didn't contain the value that matched the hype from the sales page. Have you ever felt lied to or that the MLM guru misrepresented what they sold you?

Or, in some cases, the information is so advanced & complicated that you have no idea how to even get started.  You go from a state of excitement and anticipation straight into confusion and being completely overwhelmed.

If this describes you, then you are exactly like 95% to 99% of the network marketers out there today.

Important Tip: You are not alone.

Self-Proclaimed Guru's Probably Won't Have Your Answers

There are a lot of self-proclaimed MLM gurus out there that want to sell you on how they made their money & built their team (usually in 3 months or less - with no money - and no effort ... yeah, read heavy sarcasm here). Then they, of course, promise that you can do it too -- but only if you use their system. They're trying to get you to buy into their system.

The problem is that many gurus don't really know how they did it. Often they can't explain/teach what they did - not in any detail. Most can't explain or teach what they did in a way that is understandable to mass audiences. The other problem is that sometimes their system requires so much money and time that only someone that's currently rich can afford to use it. That leaves out a lot of folks looking for solutions to their money problems.

Important Tip: What many gurus teach is not really duplicatable.

If what the gurus are teaching isn't duplicatable, then even if you figure it out and make it work for you, will you be able to teach it to your team? And will your team be able to afford it, learn it and teach it? Have you heard the quote "Those that can, do - those that can't, teach." Well, another true statement is: "those that can ... often can't teach it to others."

Important Tip: Just because someone is a guru doesn't mean they can teach others how to accomplish the same success.

When to Buy - When to Put the Credit Card Away

The key to knowing when to say no and put away your credit card is much easier after reading a great free eBook called The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing. The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing explains many of the reasons why those that struggling with network marketing haven't yet succeeded.

An example from the book is that 2 of the worst lies on the list is that all you have to do is follow "the proven system" and you will succeed. The 2nd is if you aren't successful then it's because you "don't want it bad enough" or you "don't have enough belief." Horse puckey!

Important Tip: If belief and wanting it bad enough was all it takes, I'd be a millionaire several times over and so would most of you!

So, what is the best training?

Honestly, that really depends on how you want to build your network marketing business. What you should do first in your journey towards finding what works for you is reading the 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing ... you can get your copy here for free: Once you know the lies the gurus may be telling you, you will be better able to tell the difference between the hype & the truth, and you'll better prepared to sift through it to find the true nuggets of training gold.

Here's what I believe. Network marketing success is possible for anyone that has the right mindset and finds the right training. Those that find the right training - from successful network marketers that can teach others - combined with the discipline to act on that training have the best chance of succeeding in network marketing.

True, True. It's a daunting task sifting through all the wanabes' out there. You have to be a little careful when picking the right trainer. Run away from those that "guarantee" quick riches because building a business (which is how we should all approach MLM) is a huge task that usually takes many years of trial and error. Be carefull and study on your own for a while, before you make any big investments in ANY training...
