I remember when I was a kid I was a huge fan of Captain Planet.
You know…the five kids from around the world that got rings from Gaia (Whoopi Goldberg) to control the elements? When they combined their powers they were able to summon Captain Planet (who happened to be business on the front…party in the back) and fought to save earth from polluters.
You think going green was big now? You should have seen what my generation was going through…but that's besides the point.
I'm going to try to name all the Planeteers just for giggles and your entertainment…
- Kwame had earth
- Wheeler had fire
- Linka had wind
- Gi water
- Mati had heart
Okay I cheated a little bit…I looked up Wheeler and Gi but 3 out of 5 isn't too bad for watching a show *insert number of years* ago. But here's what I want to illustrate…
Individually these Planeteers had a spectacular power at their disposal. The ability to control an element? Count me in! But many times the show would pose a situation where their powers by themselves would fail to save the day.
And so the popular phrase was coined…"By your powers combined…I AM CAPTAIN PLANET!"
A very cliche word tossed around since the day we were born. YMCA sports, Boy scouts, class exercises, ROTC and trust falls…played out right?
Well not quite. You see if it really was played out in network marketing there wouldn't be so many sponsoring rockstars suffering in their paycheck. It's not enough that you sponsor a ton of people because the name of the game is leverage.
Say it out loud…Network marketing = Leverage.
And I'm definitely guilty of forgetting this. I kept thinking the word entrepreneur meant solo…I guess I went solo because most of my friends didn't want anything to do with MLM.
Can you relate?
I want this to serve as a reminder to your duty as both an entrepreneur and network marketer…that teamwork is the ultimate goal.
Don't burn yourself out by yourself…burn yourself out teaching, coaching and leading your team to help build a REAL residual income.
Most people don't have a team…I'm happy to say that I have a very motivated team that I enjoy being around. Some people I met online and created a relationship in person while some are people I've met offline and meet on a continual basis. Find your team so you can enjoy not only the money but the people that help you achieve it.
See you at the top,
