You are not alone. Most people struggle when trying something new, and for the Network Marketing newbie it can seem a strange, often fearful path to navigate.
I have had my share of struggles in Network Marketing and it almost always came down to struggles within myself, rather than outside forces.
So what are these “demons” within ourself that keep us from succeeding in Network Marketing?
5 Network Marketing Tips For Struggling Beginners
Tip 1: YOU are responsible for the success or failure of your new business!
This is a big one (maybe the biggest), because the overwhelming majority of new and experienced network marketers blame everyone but themselves for things that go wrong.
But in reality, everything that happens to you, in business and in your personal life is a result of your decisions in some way.
You, and you alone are responsible for your business.
The buck stops with you!
Tip 2: Be patient!
Rome wasn’t built in a day. In fact, most brick and mortar businesses consider it a huge success if they can turn a profit after a couple of years. So, what makes you think that the money will start rolling in after a few days, or even months?
Building a business takes time, effort, and lots of patience.
Be prepared! When things don’t click right out of the gate, remind yourself that success is a process. Every step you take leads you closer to your goal.
Everything you learn makes you more and more valuable to others, who will ultimately see you a the leader that can help them in their quest for freedom.
But until then, relax, persevere and be patient!
Tip 3: Educate yourself!
I tell all of my new consultants that they should focus on educating themselves for the first couple of months after starting a new business. This can be difficult for many people to hear, because they want to make money, and now!
It usually doesn’t work that way.
The only way that you will make big money in network marketing (or any business) is if you over-deliver value to your customers.
How do you provide value? By educating yourself!

Tip 4: Make efficient use of your time
If you are continuing to work while starting your business, you will need to become a time management expert.
Your new business is like a newborn – it requires nurturing, attention, caring… and time.
Be sure to carve out some time every day to work on your business.
Turn your car into a rolling classroom by listening to CDs or tapes while you’re driving.
Buy yourself a good mp3 player and plug into some great educational material while you’re at lunch or cleaning the house.
Every second you spend on your business will help it grow that much faster.
Tip 5: Expect to get out of your comfort zone
If this is your first attempt at starting a business, than it’s very likely that you’ll be expanding your horizons. You’ll be learning new and different ways of expressing yourself.
You will need to connect with people.
No one ever made it big in network marketing by hiding behind their computer screen. You may very well feel uncomfortable trying new things that you may or may not be good at.
It’s okay – it means you are growing, and it’s a good thing.
Embrace the feeling and move forward.
The bottom line — have patience, be consistent in your efforts, focus on education, and above all else, take full responsibility for everything that happens.
