Five Steps To Getting Started Right


Five Steps To Getting Started Right
by Michael S. Clouse

1) Get Plugged In

Communication. It's the name of the game. Therefore, every time you
start someone new in the business, plug them in! E-mail, Web Site,
Voicemail, Corporate Magazine, Your Upline's Newsletter, Local,
Regional, and National Events. Whatever your company and support team
offers—make sure that everyone you're working with gets plugged in!

2) Master Your Core Product Line

Study one core product per day, until you understand all the benefits!
And remember the old adage, facts tell, stories sell. Therefore, make
sure you've mastered three great stories for every product that you

3) Understand Your Compensation Plan

Sit down with your upline and review the audiotapes, videotapes, or
attend the class. Whatever it takes for you to learn how you are paid,

you'll continue to do that which is easy to do.

5) Take All-Out Massive Action

Sometimes we forget that we need to get out into the marketplace.

already determined, will consume 80% of the runway before it ever gets
off the ground. But those jet engines are all systems go... We're
talking full throttle here! Now some of us are just strolling down the
runway at about 30-miles per hour—at that rate, all you will ever
accomplish is to run out of runway!

Indeed, after you've plugged in, studied your core product line,
understand your compensation plan, and have chosen the best way(s) for
you to build your business, you must take all-out massive action!
Remember, this will require at least 8 - 10 hours per week, one Saturday
per month, and one weekend per quarter, over the next two - five years.
That is, if you're truly interested in achieving time, and financial
