Law of the Big Mo

Every leader needs Momentum to help reach their goals

WakeBoardingGreetings!  Today I would like to talk about another Law of leadership from the book, “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.” This law is called the law of the Big Mo. What is the Big Mo? It is Momentum. Momentum is a leader’s best friend.  It is one of the things that will help leaders reach the goals they have for themselves and their followers. If you find yourself and your teams being stagnate and not growing or succeeding on any level, then you are dead in the water.

The Law of Respect

Are you a leader your followers respect?

George-BushGreetings!  If you have been following along with me the last few posts, then you know I have been diving into a great book called, “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.” Today I would like to talk about the Law of Respect. The sub title for this chapter says, “People naturally follow leaders stronger than themselves.” Simply put, it is hard to get someone with more leadership ability than you have to follow you. Leaders follow leaders that are further down the leadership path than themselves.

The Law of Addition

Invest, Learn, Teach

Law-of-Addition Greetings!  Today I would like to talk about the Law of Addition. This law states that leaders add value to others. Since joining my network marketing company, several of my goals in life have changed. My biggest goal now is to add more value to people’s lives. I know for some that can be quite difficult as there are so many different ways to add value to people.  So how can I know if I have reached that goal? That’s just it, I never plan to actually accomplish that goal, as there will always be someone else that I can add value.

The Law of Process

Begin with the end in mind, then follow your process to get to the end

Athens

Greetings! Today I would like to talk about another law I learned about in the book “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.” The first law was the law of the lid. Today, I would like to talk about the law of process. This law states that leaders are not born in a day, but born daily. That means that you don’t just wake up one day and BAM you’re a leader. What you do on a daily basis doesn’t seem like much, but over time you begin to change and that daily process will grow you into the leader you want to be.

Closing a Network Marking Prospect

Using their party expert to close and how to handle objections.

CheersI talked a little about the closing in my presenting blog post.  To quickly review, as soon as the presentation is finished, you ask “That was awesome right?”  Then you ask the closing question, “So are you are you ready to get started with the business, the product, or both?”  If they are ready to get started, then you enroll them.  If they have questions, then get them on the phone with a third party expert to answer their questions.  The longer you are in the company, the more you will know how to answer their questions.  However, as we discussed, never answer their questions.  Always let a third party expert answer the questions.  It all comes back to everything you do has to be duplicatable.

How to be a third party expert

One day your downline will look to you for help, do you know how to help them?

Turtle

One day you will become your downline’s third party expert.  That means you will need to know what to do when this happens. The process is simple, but you get the harder part of handling objections!

By the time you get to being the third party expert, you should have developed your story.  Your story is a combination of why are you are involved in the company and what your results have been and how it has changed your life.  You will have listened to your mentor handle objections many times, so you should have a firm grasp on that.  These two things are the main parts to being a good third party expert.

Let’s dive into the details….
