The Secret to Success in Relationship Marketing (The Promise and The Enemies) SEE MORE OF THE STORY AT END
Check this 4 min video out for PROOF OF SUCCESS: http://youtu.be/39lgzUqLceg
Several years ago, I think about 10 (could of been more), this factual story was first published….
(FOR YOUR OWN PEACE OF MIND SEE MORE OF THE STORY UPDATED FOR PRESENT DAY, AT THE END)
“THE PRICE OF THE PROMISE”
Let me tell you a story… Mark Yarnell, minister in a small town in Texas, was headed for bankruptcy and just about to lose his car and home. He looked for a way out and discovered Network Marketing. Luckily, he had a wise sponsor.
The sponsor gave Mark “THE PROMISE”, “THIS BUSINESS CAN SET YOU FREE FINANCIALLY IN ONE TO THREE YEARS.”
But he also gave him “THE PRICE”, “TO SUCCEED, YOU WILL HAVE TO FACE AND CONQUER 4 MAJOR ENEMIES.”
Mark said, “It’s a deal.”
He then invited 200 friends over to his house to watch a video. 80 said “No, not interested.” Mark had encountered ENEMY #1: Rejection.
He thought, “No problem. My sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 120 people still coming over.”Guess what? 50 didn’t show up. He had just met ENEMY #2: Deception.
Mark thought, “No problem, my sponsor warned me about that. I’ve got 70 people who watched the tape.” Guess what? 57 said, “Not interested.” He had just encountered ENEMY #3: Discouragement.
Undaunted, Mark thought, “No problem. 13 people signed up.”Guess what? 12 of them dropped out of the business shortly thereafter.ENEMY #4: Attrition;
This left mark with just one serious associate. To this day, that SINGLE distributor earns Mark over $50,000 per month!
You may have heard of Bill Britt, one of the most successful distributors in Amway. Some years ago, 20/20 did a feature story on Amway. They spent 19 minutes interviewing whiners and complainers – several distributors who had failed and showed their garages that were full of products that they couldn’t sell.
During the last minute of the show, Mr. Britt was interviewed in front of his palatial home. He was asked, “Mr. Britt, this business has obviously worked for you. What’s your secret?”
He replied, “There is no secret. I simply showed the plan to 1200 hundred people. About 900 said, ‘No,’ and only about 300 signed up. Out of those 300, only 85 did ANYTHING at all. Out of those 85 only 35 were serious, and out of those 35, 11 of them made me a millionaire!” Like Mark Yarnell, Bill Britt worked through the numbers.
Jason Boreyko, now President of New Vision, told this story recently… When he was a distributor in Matol, he signed up 50 people. He heard a lot of “No’s” on the way to those 50.
Jason took one man, who he knew would be terrific in the business, to lunch to tell him about the business and the man said, “No.” Jason took the man to lunch again the next month and told him the updates. Once again the man said, “No.” Jason sent him some more information and took him to lunch again the next month. And again the man said, No.”
That went on for six months. The seventh month, something had changed for the man, and he said, “Yes.” That man made Jason over one million dollars. Jason also worked through his numbers.
According to Richard Poe in “Wave Three”, while starting Amway, Rich Devos and Jay Van Andel, America’s eleventh riches people, recruited 500 people. 495 dropped out. The five that didn’t quit built Amway. All $7 Billion of Amway’s business was built under those 5 people. (Amway did $11.4 Billion in 2013 BTW …that is a whole lot of people making a whole lot of money) Jay and Rich had to work through their numbers. There are many similar stories.
Here’s the lesson:
Your success is directly related to the degree to which you are willing to work through YOUR numbers to find others like yourself who are committed to succeed.
Mark Yarnell’s odds were 1 out of 200.
Bill Britt’s were 11 out of 1200.
Jason Boreyko’s odds were 1 out of 50.
Would you be willing to go through 200 people to find the 1 person who will make you $50,000 a month? Or go through 200 people to become a millionaire? Or hear uncounted “No’s” to sign up 50 people to find a million dollar person?
I hope you will…It’s easier when you know the odds up front.
But here’s the catch…You have your own set of odds and you won’t know what they are until AFTER YOU’VE SUCCEEDED!
So, if you’ve gone through 50 or 100 people and you haven’t found your ONE serious person yet, you can either give up and assume the business doesn’t work, or recognize that you are just working through your OWN numbers and will one day tell YOUR STORY!It’s your choice.
MORE OF THE STORY: UPDATE FOR PRESENT DAY
All of these stories are true… I know Mark Yarnell, met him first time in 1988…Bill Britt was my first mentor and I remember watching this telecast..I don’t know Jason but know his story.
These stories all happened beginning in the early and mid 1980′s when our marketing model (I say ours because it is mine and can easily be yours) was really still in its infancy…it was growing though and in that growth and many of the participants who were hugely successful observed what happened and why.
Then they did the one thing to bless us. They started teaching how to do it, and that process is what has made the difference in the larger numbers of successful endeavors in this marketing model in the last two decades.
Some of those teachers have indeed become great mentors in those years. Some have continuted to learn and teach. Today one of those people is Jeff Olson. I’ve worked with Jeff for 18 years now.
I’ve been mentored by some great ones…Bill Britt…John Kalench…Jim Rohn…Zig Zigler…Paul J Meyer…Rocky Beach. Dennis Windsor..Larry Thompson BUT the best and greatest mentor has been Jeff Olson. And the entire Relationship marketing model has learned from him during the past two decades, even to copying his systems of duplication because they are the simplest to do and the easiest to teach.
1. ONE OF THE 5 MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BUSINESS IS YOU MUST HAVE A MENTOR THAT CAN TEACH YOU HOW TO DO THE BUSINESS…..That is why the first picture is included….nothing is as important. Find someone that can teach you. Find someone who has the “OUTLIER” experience. (the book, “Outlier” says that it takes basically 10,000 hours of doing something to become an expert which equates to about 7.5 years of FULL TIME experience. FIND ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! ASK THEM HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE THEY HAVE? FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!
2. THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS TO SUCCESS REGARDLESS OF WHAT SOMEONE TELLS YOU. That is why the second picture is included.
3. THE TIME TO DO IT IS NOW. THERE WILL NEVER BE THE “PERFECT TIME”…IT JUST DOES NOT EXIST! YOU HAVE TO GET STARTED AND YOU HAVE TO DO IT NOW….IF NOT A YEAR FROM NOW YOU WILL BE FURTHER BEHIND! That is the reason for the 3rd picture.
4. YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES UNTIL YOU MAKE A CHOICE THAT LEADS TO THE PROMISE OF THAT CHANGE, BUT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN UNTIL YOU MAKE THAT CHOICE! That is the reason for the 4 picture.
