Why 80% Fail in MLM Online Business!

Oct 12, 2007
Eighty percent of the people in online business fail because they quit. This is a well known fact. This article is written to help those who have the ability to succeed to do one thing and one thing only: not quit.

I have found that there are many leaders out there who are giving up to soon in online business. Often I'm puzzled as people who in the beginning say: "I'm with you all the way Don, even to the end, I know I'll never quit." But then six months or six days, or six hours later you get an email from your MLM that this person is no longer a member of your organization.

Well, first off, you don't go chasing after the person, because as well noted speaker and author Jim Rohn has stated: "Just say, isn't that interesting?...and don't go chase the birds because when you do that you leave the field!"

However, this article is written to those with genuine people, sales, or communication skills, who are quitting without giving themselves a chance from the start.

Since this article is written for potential birds, my urging to you is don't fly away before you see your ocean view penthouse or your 2007 Corvette! Write down your dream, and then stick to it like glue, and do as Johnny Wimbrey, up and coming incredible motivational speaker says: "Make it your Must."

So many people get into online business thinking that it's going to be get rich quick. Perhaps they should title get rich quick schemes "get rich quit." Because it's really true that the guys at the top of most scams are getting rich quick while you quit after investing your money. It's a vicious cycle. One that must be obliterated and dealt with.

So, how do you know if you should stay with your current MLM online business or if you should quit? Number one, if your not sure of your company or stability, perhaps you have a good reason to quit. But for the 90% of you out there who are sold on your company or opportunity, I have one message: Don't quit!

The online opportunity I'm involved with has over 20 years of online experience, and they were the first affiliate program ever offered online, so they have quite an immaculate background. But, even though that's true, it still takes me "work" to make it happen. Greg Ankney, one of the top health company MLM leaders has been quoted as saying: "I went to work."

That's the problem and herein lies the solution. Most people quit MLM's because they are not willing to go to work or to keep on working. Comments like: "Oh, this is too hard, and oh, I didn't know I'd have to talk to people, are running rampant in MLM. Yes you have to talk to people, yes you have to follow your companies marketing plan, to the tee, doing everything your leaders tell you to do, and then you may just end up getting rich!

The internet today keeps making it easier and easier to market your online business, but yet it's amazing when you look at the statistics that fewer than 5% of those who join MLM's actually ever advertise online! Isn't that interesting? Even with the advent of cheap or low cost free ads, forums, pay-per-click advertising, and much more, people are still afraid to step out and just let others know about their site. That's just crazy!

So how do we stop this nonsense?

It's easy, I need all of you out there who are in an MLM, or looking for an MLM home business, to do three things. Number one, never quit. Number two, find an online business that you love. Number three, when things get tough in your home business, I want you to remember the accomplishments in your life. For example, did you ever win an award for selling something, did you obtain a diploma your proud of, did you win the congressional medal of honor?

Just simply thinking of your prior accomplishments in life may indeed help you to hang on to this awesome MLM online business opportunity you've been blessed to participate and succeed in. In conclusion, my hope and prayer is that someone will read this article who is about to quit their MLM, or who needs a stable MLM home business, and they will make the choice to do one thing: Never quit. Ever.

Then I want you to write me and let me know what happens. In addition to never quitting I want you to follow the instructions of your upline leaders to the tee, without inventing your own tangents, and then keep going with your company for three to five years.

It just might be after that amount of time where you "go to work" you may become financially free, and better yet, you may be involved with your MLM for life and your family may never have to worry about money again. Never forget what happened to a friend of mine Joel Buchfeller of Excel Telecommunications. He enrolled one guy names Al, on his second level, who made him an income for the rest of his life. He never fell below a $5000 per month income, and most of the time it was two or three times that. So don't give up, because you never know when you're going to find your "Al" who enrolls under you!

So please, take my advice, and don't quit. Remember your prior accomplishments, and in the words of our Lord, please remember that: "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26. If you know you belong with your MLM company, stick with it, and who knows, you may be the next online business internet millionaire, and you'll be the one all of us are listening to for advice. Never quit.
