“The secret to making the compounding effect work for you … is that first, you have to break through inertia.” – Richard Bliss Brooke
Launching a Network Marketing sales group is much like pushing a car over a very slight hill. Imagine that you ran out of gas as you were driving up a hill. At the top of the hill the road becomes flat for some period of time and then slightly descends to the bottom of the hill where there is a gas station. Your mission is to get out of the car, get it rolling up the slight hill, to the top, and keep it going on the flat section until you crest the hill. Then you hop in and go for the ride of your life.
Network Marketing is the same. In the beginning, you will exert the most amount of effort promoting the product and enrolling new people for the least amount of return. Once you get things rolling, it will take less effort, but you must still keep pushing to keep it going. Once you gain momentum, you just hop in and enjoy the ride.
Momentum happens at different times in different companies. You will know it when you are in it. You will not be able to keep up with the requests people have for you, and your group will be on fire.
It is the low return on effort in the beginning that leads most people to give up. They do not have the vision and belief in the payoffs on the other side. Do you?
