Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.

Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.So many people that are in network marketing have the wrong idea of how the law of attraction works. Not only do they believe that all they have to do is sit down on their couch and that everything they want will appear they also have an entitlement mentality they believe that if someone truly cares that they will just give and they are more than willing to just take. If you want to learn How to Network Market you have to learn the art of give and take. I am sure you have had it happen to you before the guy or gal that sends you an email telling you that if you really cared about people you would not charge for your services. That you are a hypocrite because you take peoples money for helping them. I got to say even though I don’t recall ever being the type of person that has acted it that manner I have been the person that believed that you needed to give everything for free. But that is the subject of another article. Today I want to explore how to be a giver and a taker.


  1. If you constantly believe that others should give out of the kindness of their heart and you feel that they should help you for free you are a taker.If you feel that people should comment on your post just because it is a great post you are a taker.
  2. If you feel that just because you post something on facebook offering the “greatest business opportunity in the world”  thinking that you are giving -you are really a taker.
  3. If you go to someones post and give a fake email name and phone number just to get someones training for free -you are a taker.

How to be a Giver

A giver is not someone that necessarily gives everything for free. A giver understands that it is not beneficial to someone without expecting an exchange of some sort. Actually giving to someone without them giving back will violate one of our ingrained reactions. In the book Influence by Robert Cialdini he writes about Reciprocity. One of the interesting stories is about the Hare Krishna at the airport. People use to hate to take the roses they were offering because as much as they did not want to they felt compeled to donate and when they didn’t they felt guilty.

  1. A giver is someone that when they are giving or even selling they understand that they are providing more value than they are receiving.
  2.  A giver bothers to learn what their target market needs and fulfills that need to the best of his ability. Again not someone that just plasters their opportunity on facebook and thinks because their business is the best one in the world that they are giving.
  3.  A giver would be someone that takes the time to comment. Like Ryan Biddulph ( “Home Based Success”) he gives by taking the time to just comment on peoples blogs.
  4. A giver could just be someone that gives smiles or positive vibes to people, someone that uplifts rather than dump on others all the time. Someone that listens rather than talk. Not that they can’t talk or find counsel in someone they trust. Because a giver knows how to receive as well.

Learn How to be a Giver and a Taker in your Network Market.We all give and take, some of us are out of balance. Some people give to much and resent it, so even tough it appears they are giving spiritually they are taking. Some people are takers and they don’t understand why they are not getting ahead. Yet others have learned to live in balance.

There are different areas of our lives as well so you might be a giver at work but at home you are a taker and it is affecting your relationship. The important thing is to identyfy where you are a giver, where you are a taker. Are you in balance? Sometimes when establishing a relationship you end up giving alot more than receiving but this should only be temporary. Who in your life whether it is in business or in relationship is a giver or a taker? You might want to identify and get rid of those people that are takers in your life or busness. Hope that I gave you some good information today. If you would like to reciprocate just LIKE my facebook page and we can call it even. LOL. You will find that I like to give more than take. Have a blessed day!

An Inherit Problem with Network Marketing and How to Solve it.

Belive in Yourself no one else can do it for you.

I have alluded to the fact that as good as network marketing is, it has some inherent challenges. Actually these challenges prevented me from really giving my all to the industry.

About two years ago Jaime calls me and leaves a message on my machine wanting more information on my business opportunity. I called him back and he starts telling me how busy he is. He has two businesses, kids, and was going to school at the time. So I politely told him that this might not be the right time for him to add extra pressure to his already busy life .
He insisted on checking it out. I was going away so I told him why not meet in two weeks, that was too much time for him so he wanted to meet sooner. I scheduled with my partner and she ended up showing him what we had to offer and he joined our team shortly after. He was extremely dynamic had no trouble setting up appointments or selling the business or products. He had the potential to reach any level he put his mind to, but there was a little problem. He kept asking me- Do you really think I can make 4,500 dollars per month residual within 6 month to a year and a half with this business? I kept assuring him that with his potential and drive he could reach any level, and I truly believed that, to this day I still believe it.

About a year and a half ago my cousin Frankie, partnered up with me as well. Unlike Jamie, Frankie had no doubt in himself or the business. Him and his wife took the business and ran with it. Don’t get me wrong over the last year and a half they have had their ups and downs but they have the belief in themselves as well as in the business. They are just at the level where they are making 4,500 residual after a year and a half. They are growing exponentially and not only are they making money there distributors are doing well themselves. My point is this Jaime and his wife and Frankie and his wife had the same potential the same busy lifestyle the same opportunity in the same company but Frankie and Stacy had a belief in themselves and the business that was unstoppable.

When prospects asked Jaime if he really believed they could really make that money he had a hesitation in his answer. How do I know this? Because after every sponsorship he would came back to me and ask me again if I really believed he could make that kind of money residually. Eventually life took over and although I believe he has the potential to do anything he wants I wonder if he will come back.


Not everyone succeeds at Network Marketing. I was told to sell the hype. The truth is that it is unreasonable to expect that most of the people would succeed or even that most people would stick around long enough to succeed. I personally had to deal with the fact that not everyone will succeed and it is not in my power to make them succeed. Two people with the same potential can be offered the same opportunity and can have very different outcomes. This is why I still don’t make guarantees but I believe that Network Marketing is the best avenue for the average person with the right mind set to become above average. BTW- Frankie’s sponsorships and organization thrived while Jamie’s organization struggled. Sometime we must succeed so that others can succeed.


Keep this in mind;

“ It is unreasonable to think that all those people succeed or that they would remian active in the business. However, numbers feed the success of your down line. The more people you attract into your sales organization, the more who are likely to remain. And so long as a good number of them sell products and services and recruit additional distributors, there is going to be a pay day for you every month” John P. Hayes, Ph.D.


Are you going to be the one who doubts or the one who will succeed? Why will your business work? Because the business opportunity is the greatest or because you are going to make it work? Will you succeed so that others succeed or will you continue to struggle?


This business like any other is a numbers game, some companies afford better opportunities that others but I still believe that if it is the right person you could succeed in any of them. Something that I see stop people is their lack of leads, if you would like to have steady amount of leads to share your opportunity with I am offering a free training that you can have immediate access to by filling out your name, email and phone number. May you have all the success that you are looking for!
