Abraham Jong Min & Sun Mae Min – NuSkin
Are you ready for a challenge? Are you ready to work hard and reap the benefits? If you answer yes to these questions, then I would like to welcome you to network marketing. Although network marketing has been linked to MLM schemes and pyramid scams, it still continue to prosper. This is the only industry where you can have a profitable direct sales business in which you have a continuous flow of income coming in from just your initial work.
You want your business to grow? Not a problem with MLM. You just have to work on building your team. It is imperative that you surround yourself with people who share your goals and work ethic. More importantly, you have to be an effective leader. You will lead your team by example. This means that you work and develop your relationships whether you feel like it or not. You respond to every email and phone call you receive.
I have heard about MLM leaders who say one thing, and their behavior is something completely different. As with anything in life, your actions speak louder than your words. Talk is cheap. Love is action. If you love your MLM career, and you love people, you should be working diligently to make sure that all needs are met.
I don’t mean this to sound sexist, but women do very well in multilevel marketing, more so than men. Before you men get upset, I am not saying that men don’t do well, because you can look at the top MLM earners and there are plenty of men. But, network marketing is based on creating and developing relationships, and we know that women are better at this than men.
Okay, okay, I will move on. Anyhow, regardless if you are a man or woman, if you don’t know how to treat, talk, or connect to people, you might want to consider another career path, because MLM isn’t for you. Everything in life isn’t for everyone, and just because you are attracted to the fact that you can make six figures a month shouldn’t be your attraction to relationship marketing.
I have said this before, every Top MLM earner has stated this, but I will repeat it. Network marketing is hard work. It is fun, because you are involved with a company that provides products and services you believe in. But there are events, training sessions, and team meetings that you are required to participate in on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. You have to put the work in to get your time and financial freedom.
If you are one of those who like to put accomplishing tasks off until the last minute, or you always want someone else to do things for you, you need to find another way to earn your desired six figures. I know you see the residual income, and you want it. But you have to run your home-based business with others (your team) in mind before your own needs.
According to those who are MLM millionaires, when you follow this pattern, the money is going to come in. Your team’s attitude and behavior is a reflection of your attitude and behavior. If your personality and attitude is stank, then no one is going to want to be around you. You have to possess the mindset that your business is nothing without the people close to you, and therefore, they should be treated that way—like you cherish them.
MLM is an exciting and fun industry. You can grow on a personal and professional level, as well as meet people who will encourage you on your path to time and financial freedom. It is also not for the weary. If you don’t want to give 100% and then some to building your home-based business, then I recommend you stick to your 9-5 job.
As far as a 9-5 job goes, I wouldn’t hold my breath on any guarantee that you will have the same position until you decide to retire. It just doesn’t work that way anymore. There are so many stories of people who walk into their company and were walking back out the door with their belongings. Corporations want to get the most work at the cheapest price.
So, if they can get someone to replace you that will only require them to pay half of your salary, you are gone. It doesn’t matter how great of an employee you are, you are replaceable. Another area to be concerned is retirement. Businesses are filing bankruptcy every day, putting your money for your senior years into jeopardy. I have never understood how people can be loyal to people and places that are not loyal to them.
Every time I write about someone who stepped out on faith and took a chance with multilevel marketing, I am ecstatic. I really don’t blame him or her. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Even if your first time at MLM doesn’t turn out the way you want, you know what to do different next time in order to be more successful.
There are a lot of top MLM earners who said that they had to regroup and refocus on their daily goals before they had a business model that would work for them. If you are so quick to quit when your first check isn’t as much as you wanted, what are going to do when people tell you “no” two, three times in a row? You have to want to step out and be bold.
This is how Abraham Jong Min & Sun Mae Min started with Nu Skin. Abraham said that he was invited to a Nu Skin event a couple of times, but he always passed on it. Then one day, he decided to attend. Afterwards, he thought if what he heard was true, it would be perfect for him and his family. He would have free time to spend with his wife, Sun Mae, as well as becoming financially-free.
His father was a business owner, so he knew there were certain limitations, but he found none with NuSkin enterprises. He decided to give NuSkin a try. A student at the time, he had applied for a few jobs, and he was waiting for responses, but they came too late. He believes it was fate that he was supposed to work with NuSkin.
When he first started, he learned that not every person was as enthusiastic about MLM and NuSkin as he was. He encountered so many negative people, he decided that he would only work with people who were on the same page as he was.
Didn’t I say this earlier? When you are going after your goal, you have to surround yourself with people who are goal-oriented as well. You are known by the company you keep. As the saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together.” You can’t have spiteful, ignorant, negative individuals around you. You don’t want that type of spirit around you, and you don’t want that bad vibe to run off on you.
Abraham and Sun analyzed what worked in the NuSkin multilevel marketing business and what didn’t. For three years, they created and tried their business model until they developed one that would work for their team and themselves. Their goal was for their team to experience more chances to succeed, more sales and more people joining.
Here is food for thought: Abraham & Sun followed the NuSkin manual, but they changed some concepts in a way that would make them more productive for their business. Your manual is a guide, but you might have to tweak some ideas here and there so they serve your purpose. There is nothing wrong with this. You will have to do what is needed to bring out the best in you and your team.
Abraham and Sun don’t try to recruit everyone they meet. Instead of trying to recruit someone who is easy to talk to, they go after folks who are living a good life and want to take it to the next level. Network marketing works like this: you are as successful as the people you work with. If your people are unhappy and not putting in effort, you will not be happy and you will not be prosperous.
Didn’t I just say this? You can’t be around people who are just coasting in life, and they are happy and proud of it. If your team doesn’t make money, you don’t make any either. So it would behoove you to put individuals on your team that have a zest for life and are not afraid to work for it.
Abraham & Sun “retired” when they were in their 40’s. When they started in network marketing, they never thought that they could have such a rich and fulfilled life. They never imagined they would earn $110,000.00 a month in residual income. But once they got started, they realized anything was possible when you put the work in. Now, they enjoy so many freedoms, they get along better with people, and their health has improved.
They are proud of their success with NuSkin. Moreover, they are proud of the success of the others in their group. Their front line is $20 Million Dollar Circle member, and they are too. Abraham Jong Min & Sun Mae Min are also Team Elite members. They live by the philosophy: if you don’t give up, you won’t fail. People who give up can’t succeed.
