“Persistence is a By-Product of 4 Small Habits” by Mark J – Week 24

PERSISTENCE

Is there a self-help book that does not hammer on persistence?

What a yawn fest…..talk about a load of crap.

Hang in there! Don’t Quit!

Winners Never Quit & Quitters Never Win!

Gimme a break…….these great statements feel good but do they really do any good?

This week I’d like to talk about some key elements that can be easily overlooked when one is trying to build their network marketing business successfully. There are some simple things that are really just a matter of common sense that will save you a lot of time and effort if you are mindful of these elements.

You’ve heard these before, but I’m asking you to thoughtfully consider them again. Sometimes, when our business isn’t growing, we tend to look for that next tip or strategy that will make all the difference when all we really need to do is go back to the basics. Skill strategies can be extremely helpful, but they work best when you already have some foundational elements in place. Continue reading “Common Sense Isn’t So Common — Week 9”
