The Cart Before The Horse

Nov 8th 2010 at 10:30 PM

I don't if the title makes any sense but I know what I mean by it. I was having a conversation today with a new partner,and we were discussing the long development of learning how to build an affiliate / network marketing business.  we learned from our discussion is that most people learn how to build a business while owning a business. Thats what I mean by the Cart Before The Horse.

Thats process of learning how to build a business is the very reason why people fail. This is the only industry in which a person actually invest in a business before they know how to build it. Now I know companies have so called training seminars and meeting but they are not more than rally and hype sessions to get more people in to a business.

Real training consist of practical hands on training in which new people can experience and witness the successful ones in action. I spent less time in traditional sales than I spend in mlm and learn more because in traditional sales you have an experienced manage or co-worker to shadow and learn from.

Does anyone realize that to operate a McDonald you have to go to McDonald University? You might say to yourself that anyone who invest the 100 of thousands of dollars in a McDonald should be taught to run one. But any business that wants to be successful make people successful should want to train people to be successful considering that most people don't know anything about sales, business, or network marketing. This is just my opinion.

I teaching people how to build their current businesses online. I hope I teach people before they invest in a business because then they understand what to expect. If every business taught people how to actually prospect in the traditional way instead of selling their compensation plans less people who quit mlm and stop blaming mlm and praise for it's ability to empower the masses.

Great information, Jones. It is very true that we DO often get the cart in front of the horse ... which makes us work harder than necessary to reach our goals. Yet we rarely improve the situation by putting the horse in front where it can be more productive. Much continued success to you. ~LonnieG

On the other hand it should be a possibility to think about this: Not everyone will be successful in an mlm - not because he does not have the capacity but it still is not his job. You can get all the training necessary to be successful, there is some little 'extra' inside of us which in the end makes the difference. :)
