I love network marketing and I have always looked for a book that makes the concept plain and simple and I finally found it. I've been in traditional sales for many years and presently have my own network marketing business.
This book really helped me define in detail my motivation or my why. Whether we realize it or not, the 'why' is what drives us to do everything. But since we seldom think about our decisions in that way, when you make a decision to earn income in a non-traditional way, it helps to drill down on your motivation to keep that in front of you when things get tough.
I love that the book is set up with short and very easy exercises at the end of each chapter. These exercises drill home the point just covered and help you to define the concept in your own business. As I have completed the exercises, I have uncovered some important skills I want to update and that will surely help my business.
This is a must-read for beginners however veteran network marketers or sales people can certainly be refreshed on the simple tactics, methods, and concepts. I like that you can read and act as you go. No need to stop productivity just to read this book. Read and work. Read and work.
I think readers will also enjoy Mary's upbeat and positive tone throughout the book. IMO the book is a must read for everyone in sales and especially network marketing. The book has really set me back on track and I'm sure it will do the same for you.
In "Be A Network Marketing Superstar," Mary Christensen (with Wayne Christensen) offers an excellent overview of the qualities and mindset necessary to succeed in network marketing. With real-life examples and highlights of her personal challenges and accomplishments, Christensen provides key insights and outlines specific helpful steps to take. She gives a good snapshot of the industry (including a brief historical review), which I think is particularly valuable given that so many are seeking an alternative to traditional "jobs" - in today's broken economy. Since this industry is growing so rapidly, a basic primer from a seasoned professional is essential. This books fills the bill. There are practical exercises and some real gems. In the very beginning she states what she calls the three basic principles of network marketing: "1. There are no shortcuts 2. There are no excuses 3. There are no trophies for trying." She, quite rightly I believe, gives the real key to success: "Although knowledge is a powerful asset, knowledge translated into action is the winning formula." And with real understanding she is both encouraging and direct: "It takes courage to change your life. Confidence will come when you start to see results. Courage first, then confidence." As an Internet marketing mentor and coach, I find this small volume to be an excellent introductory overview; and highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of getting in to this dynamic and rewarding industry, or who has perhaps been in it for a while and wants a great refresher.
I've been with a direct selling company that I LOVE for four months now. I heard about Mary Christensen from our company when they announced she would be our guest speaker at our annual convention. Getting a sneak peak of what Mary was all about on one of our company calls, I was immediately drawn to purchase her Be a Network Marketing Superstar book. I'm still mid-read, but all of her tips are perfect ~ a lot of which are in line with the Law of Attraction ~ and the practical exercises at the end of each chapter are great to get you going and motivated to be successful!
I would recommend this book to those just starting out, those who have self-doubts, and those who just need that inspiration to keep going.
Mary was an absolutely JOY to listen and learn from at our convention, and I am absolutely pre-ordering her Party Planner book!
