(Or How to Stay Motivated in Your Network
Marketing Business)

Copyright © 2003 Priya Shah

Is it possible to motivate yourself to do something you
don't enjoy doing?

Let me illustrate with my own example.

I'm not a natural networker. I'm no good at schmoozing
and talking people into doing things I want them to do.

I've been told that I'm too upfront and honest for my
own good. I know its true.

So how did I land up in network marketing?

Well, I always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom AND
continue working.

Now network marketing OFFLINE is not exactly my cup of tea.

My "warm market" would probably be cold to my advances.

Attend meetings? But I thought the idea was to AVOID the
awful commute!

If I called a friend over, it would be to chat about college
days - NOT try to "introduce" them to "my new business."

I'm simply not comfortable with many of the methods that
are used to "recruit" people.

But I'm still managing to do a decent job of building my

I also manage to keep myself motivated enough to WANT
to spend every waking moment on my business.

How do I do it? I found something about the business I
loved - the internet!

Now the internet is a whole new ball game as far as
networking is involved.

On the internet you don't get rich by approaching people
who aren't interested in what you have to offer. Uninvited
advances are better known by the word "spam."

You don't lurk in chat rooms - the real-world equivalent
of street corners - and accost them (no matter what your
upline tells you).

You find out where they hang out and then make your
presence felt in those places - like search engines,
ezines, discussion lists.

If you can write reports, offer useful information,
establish yourself as someone willing to share their
expertise - your prospects will FIND YOU.

And if you can find something about the business you love
- something about it that gives you a RUSH - you will
never be short on motivation.

Its my love for researching and writing reports that gives
me the motivation and the edge I need.

With you it could be any number of things - helping people,
interacting with others, making friends, writing articles,
designing a website - all the things the internet is good

And you'll soon find out that if it feels good for you,
it'll most likely be good for your business.
