The best Multi-Level and Network Marketing Salespeople have several things in common:
1. They have adapted to the changes in the Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) business.
2. They consistently look for new (and stable) MLM Products, MLM Companies, MLM Opportunities and MLM Leads.
3. They are disciplined and work hard to improve their Networking and Sales skills.
4. They place honesty and integrity at the forefront of all transactions – Yes, that’s right I used honesty and integrity in the same breath as MLM and Network Marketing.
If you plan, and act, accordingly, you have the opportunity to gain everything that MLM and Network Marketing promises – Money, Freedom, Work-Life Balance and Financial Independence.
This segment of the “Sales Industry” has a particularly poor reputation – your commitment to integrity and honesty is not just the right thing to do, it will help you stand out from the crowd and result in a greater Network of associates and customers.
Sometimes it appears that every second person you meet is associated with some form of Multi-Level Marketing Company, or trying to succeed in Network Marketing. Fortunately, for you, most of them simply do not recognize the need to hone their skills.
Success in this industry comes the same way as any other. Hard work, focus, discipline and most frequently ignored – training.
Even though MLM is viewed as an alternative to Direct Sales and other more “traditional” forms of acquiring customers it is all too easy to forget that Direct Sales had a very dubious beginning.
It is not that long ago “Direct Sales” consisted of someone going “door-to-door” with a beaten-up looking suitcase containing product samples. We have all seen the caricatures of the 1950′s pushy “Direct Sales” person wedging his foot in the corner of the door-frame to prevent the house-wife from slamming it in his face.
Multi-Level and Network Marketing face a similar issue with bad PR. Pyramid schemes are never too far away from one’s mind when discussing MLM.
So, what will it take to change this reputation? Simple – YOU.
You have to decide to conduct all activity and transactions with the upmost honesty and integrity. If you are able to do so, the nothing can hold you back.

My colleagues and I hold Sales Leadership positions within some of America’s largest and most successful companies and have complained, often, about the lack of good quality sites our sales people could visit for advice and sales tips.
So, we decided to build the type of site that we would like our sales people to use. It has integrity as its corner-stone and relies on real sales people and sales leaders for its content.
