I get a lot of questions about how to make money with AdvoCare.
Many people don’t know where to start or how to begin.
I’m going to take you through some must haves in order to be successful profiting from AdvoCare.
1. Hunger – If you take a look at the successful people in network marketing or anything for that matter, it usually starts from a point of desperation and drive to succeed that surpasses anything else.
You’ve heard the stories of rags to riches and people who hit rock bottom and finally are in that place of “do or die”.
I know for me, I was looking for a way to make money without going back to work full time which led me to AdvoCare (in a round about way!)
Honestly I was sick and tired of being sick and tired! Bills were pilling up, there was never money for vacations, dinners out, or “extras”.
The year I started AdvoCare 2 of my kids were in private school, we were in a house we bought at the top of the bubble and could not afford, and after repeated tries at getting a “real job”, nothing was opening up for me.
Now-I am by no means at a place of major life changing money yet. But I will tell you that because of AdvoCare, our family has a lot more choices.
I’ve been able to pay off over $5000 in debt and have a nice consistent monthly income that surpasses anything I would have made going back to work.
2. Consistency– I don’t know why people get into network marketing and think that the second they pay for their kit, they are going to get rich?!?
What other job or business model does this?
There isn’t one!…So many people give up after they get in when a few people say no to the products or business.
When the newness of the business wears off and times are tough you must hang on the the reason you started in the first place and keep pushing through.
I love what Sarah Robbins the wildly successful network marketer says,
You see–there’s a daily battle for your vision. If you are discouraged, defeated, devastated, or distracted from your vision, you then become ineffective at your mission in life–whether it be to love your loved ones or to lead your team. That’s why it’s important to keep our vision strong, protect it, and to stay focused on our calling in life.
Your not going to always feel like working your business or making that phone call, but by staying focused on your purpose, you can get past the feeling and make breakthroughs.
3. A Thick Skin- When I first started this blog almost 2 years ago, I would get some of the most hateful comments and emails you can imagine.
It was like everyone and their brother were saying your an idiot for getting into network marketing.
Yes I had support from my husband and close friends but I think they also figured it would come and go and I would move on to something else in a few weeks.
Something usually happens when you first start building your business, you think of people that you know who would be great at this…..
But when those people say no or not now, it can be discouraging and make you want to throw in the towel.
Here is what I’ve learned, don’t let the opinions of others distract you from your vision and purpose for your life.
Their opinions don’t pay your bills and provide time with your family!
I have some people who watched me for a year or longer after saying no and then decided to join.
Sometimes the people around you just want to see if you can do it. Prove them wrong and show them you can!
4. A Giving Spirit
Provide value and help for those that want it and need it and you will be rewarded greatly in this business.
Help others win should be your motto!
When people start hitting their health and financial goals your really are the one that gets the blessing in return and it’s not just financially.
I’ve formed some wonderful friendships through AdvoCare and am very grateful for that.
At first I thought I would start this blog and sell products, sign some people up, and make some extra money to start paying down debt.
That did happen but it wasn’t until I really started building relationships with team members and customers did I start to see a jump in my paycheck and began figuring out my purpose in all of this.
5. Ability to Share- our job as business builders with AdvoCare is to share the products and business opportunity with others but not “sell” it.
We are all adults and can make up our own mind whether or not we want to get involved with AdvoCare and if so how we want to get involved.
It’s kind of like if I find this awesome new restaurant in town and can’t wait to share it with friends.
I tell my friends about it and they see my excitement and want to try it themselves….Sharing…
Now let’s say one of my friends says, “I tried it but didn’t really like it”. I’m not going to be mad at them or hurt that they didn’t like it.
But I might say, “what did you have?” or “what didn’t you like about it?” Once they tell me I can have a better idea of whether or not they chose the right meal or went at the right time or whatever….
It’s a little different with everyone but here is one example of what I have seen work really well for people who are sharing.
After you’ve completed the 24 day challenge and have lost weight, gained energy, or both people start seeing a change in you.
Maybe you’ve lost some weight and your friends or coworkers start saying something like, “wow you look great” or “how do you have so much energy?”
That’s a perfect time to share with them how you started a program your really excited about and would love to set a time to talk to them more about it. Boom! Done!
Sometimes we really over complicate this thing! Don’t let fear hold you back from sharing with someone. Don’t attach your self worth with whether or not they say yes!
Your sharing NOT selling! If you think you have what it takes, click below:
Well I hope you got some value out of this post and I’d love to say there are some secret ninja techniques that you have to learn to be successful but there isn’t. It’s simple…..
Are there some things you can do like social media, blogging, etc. that you can do to gain more exposure to people? Yes…
But honestly some of those things are really hard to duplicate and I have learned the hard way that we need to make this as simple as possible following proven systems of success.
