All it takes is three, five or seven people or whatever the magical number is. What magical number did your upline tell you? All you need is five good people and your business will explode and will take on a life of its own. Is this really true? Of course it isn’t.

It doesn’t take five, ten, or even fifty. It takes hundreds of people before your business will take on a life of its own.

But what about duplication? Isn’t that what every MLM company teaches. Don’t get me wrong, it does happen, but you most provide your organization with the right skills, resources and marketing tools. And you must have a flow of prospects. If you provide these, you will get duplication.

Build your business as if duplication won’t happen. You are in control of your business. Don’t sponsor 10,15, 20 people and then fall back into management mode. The simple truth is – not everyone is going to duplicate your efforts.

Now, if you provide your organization with the tools, resources and management skills they need, duplication will increase.

You need to bring in enough people personally to make sure you get those partners that will hit the ground running and build on their own. Remember, this isn’t a cookie cutter business. Treat each prospect as an individual. Every person is unique and looking for different solutions.

The more people you sponsor, the faster you will see growth and the quicker your business will be where you want it to be.

If you continue to recruit and develop as a leader, you will attract leaders.

Become an expert. An expert that others seek out and want to follow. How can you become an expert if you aren’t continually in the action?

Your organization will see your actions and want to follow and duplicate your efforts. The bottom line is become an expert and a leader. You will attract leaders. Leaders that will follow in your footsteps.
