I wanted to talk about how long do you need to be recruiting for?
Sometimes new people in network marketing or people who don't understand network marketing will ask you questions like, “Well, how many people do I need to recruit? How long do I need to be recruiting for? How long do I need to be selling for?”
And you see, for me, if you understand that network marketing is a business, that network marketing is a profession, then you shouldn't have that question because it's same as a surgeon saying, “Well, how many more of these operations do I need to do?” “Well, you'll be doing them for the rest of your career.” Or like chef saying, “Well, how many more of these dishes do I need to cook?” “You’ll cook them for the rest of your life? That's the job you chose. That's the career you chose. So you'll be doing that, for the rest of your life.” If you're in real estate, you're not going to go, “Well how many more of these houses do I need to sell?” “Well, as many as you can for the rest of your career?”
So same in network marketing, like being a surgeon, like being a chef, like being a real estate agent, when you in network marketing, you don't ask, “Well, how many more do I need to recruit?” “Thousands.” You're going to be doing this for the rest of your career. You're never going to stop recruiting, you're never going to stop sharing your products with other people because that's your profession, that's the industry you chose, that's the business you chose.
I think the reason why a lot of people ask that question is because they go recruited into network marketing on the wrong pretence, they got recruited in a tricky way, where somebody said to them, “Well, all you need to do is just bring in three people. And those three people bring three people and those three people bring three people, and you're a millionaire.
So when a person comes with that mentality, that I only need to recruit three people, then they keep asking, “Well, how many more do “I need to recruit? How long do I need to keep prospecting for?” Because they were not introduced into network marketing as a profession, as a industry as a career where you're going to be doing this for the rest of your life. And I've seen somebody, also, we were sitting with one of the top leaders in the company making huge money, has a team, a massive team, and somebody else asked her, they said, “Oh, so you still recruiting? You’re still doing your job?” And she went, “Of course.” But why did the person asked that? Because their idea of passive income was that you do something once, and then you stop working for the rest of your life.
And a lot of you probably have the same notion of passive income, that you do something once and that's it, you don't need to work ever again. But that's not how passive income works. Yes, passive income is when you do the job once and you get paid again and again and again, on the job, which in network marketing, that exactly how it works.
Like I've introduced some people into the business eight years ago, and I still get paid today, on their shopping, on the people that they bring into the business, and so on, and so on and so, but that doesn't mean I stopped working, what I bring that one or two people, I carry on bringing other people into the business because as far as I'm aware, there's still people who need help, there's still people who want to earn more money, there's still people out there who need what I have to offer.
So yes I do the job once that I get paid forever on that job but it doesn't mean I stopped working. It doesn't mean I stopped introducing other people. It doesn't mean I stop showing my products to other people. It doesn't mean that because like who else is earning passive income? Well, authors, the write the book once, and then they get paid forever on that book, but do they stop writing after releasing one book? No, they keep writing new books.
Singers, they release a song, and they get paid forever on that song, but do they stop singing? Do they stopped releasing new songs? No, they keep doing that. So if you're a network marketer and you’re going, “Well, I've recruited five already, how many more do I need to recruit?” Then you’re bloody insane, because you don't understand how the industry works. You don't understand how a career works. You don't stop doing something, you keep doing it.
So if you’re in network marketing, and you going to be recruiting people for the rest of your career, you're never going to stop introducing people to your business, you never going to stop introducing people to your products, because that would just be crazy. Like why would you, if you were a doctor, why would you stop doing operations? If you were a chef, why would you stop cooking? If you were to real estate agents, why would you stop selling houses? You never stop that. Yes, you get paid on your previous work, which is awesome, but you don't stop doing it.
So if you are one of those people going, “Oh, how many more do I need to recruit? How many more do I need to sell?” This career might not be for you. You may be better off just doing a normal job because clearly, you're not getting the network marketing industry.
