Before we jump into the discussion on home business leads, let’s take a look at a story. Maybe this is a story about you.
For many years now you have worked hard, been a good partner, an excellent parent. You have done all the right things society expected from you. Despite all this you have felt unfulfilled. You expected more from life. You were promised much more.
You’re not living in the house you want. You’re not living where you want. You don’t get to go on overseas vacations whenever you want. You don’t get to buy a new car every year. You don’t even get to live without being in debt to credit cards, banks and loans companies.
You’ve done all the right things, you studied hard, you work hard, you’re a good member of society.
You’re not lazy, you’re not a dumbass!
I was in the same situation. Fortunately, I was able to build a huge home business in a very short time by using good quality home business leads. I made it to the Diamond level in only 90 days. Click that link back there for more details
Genuine, top quality home business leads are the key to your success. I’m not like other lead company owners. I’ve put the miles in, I’ve built a network marketing business. I know what you’re going through and am here to support you.
We keep things very simple here, no hogwash, no BS, no confusing you with a ton of different options.
We have two types of home business leads. Just like the fuel you put in your car, we have Economy and Premium.
Economy home business leads are for using bulk contacting methods such as email, SMS texting, Phone dialers and Ringless voicemail drops. These leads are very inexpensive but do not work well for one on one calling. The bulk methods work best for these leads.
Premium home business leads are perfect for one on one calling. That’s exactly what we designed them for. They have plenty of information and are genuinely wanting information about a home business.
Select which country suits you and we can get started on bringing your dreams to reality
We also have a sister site which supplies Australian MLM Leads
When this happens and it does now and then, it’s very distressing. We feel we have failed this client and we have probably lost them as clients forever. At Apache Leads we try very hard to provide a great experience for every client, but being realistic it’s simply not possible to please or satisfy everyone.
When it does happen, we hold a staff discussion about the whole relationship we have had with the upset client. We pinpoint when the client became upset or disappointed and work toward preventing this happening again. I can’t speak for all mlm leads companies, but I’m sure the other good companies most likely have a similar process. No business wants clients to be distressed, dis-satisfied and angry. It’s not in anyone’s interest and so is to be avoided whenever possible.
For me to fully and honestly answer the question at hand; Why Don’t MLM Leads Companies Give Refunds, some explanations of how and why things happen is needed. Please bear with me and I will reveal all.
Lets start at the beginning.
The majority of clients are ordinary people like you or me. Nothing weird, nothing special, just plain folks.
Recently they have been recruited into a network marketing business. For the vast majority, this is the very first time they have been a business owner.
If I was asked to describe the average client I would say this:
They are regular people, married, two children, a house which is mortgaged, two cars. Both parents work. They are good devoted parents and try hard to make ends meet. Their incomes are just not enough to cover their living expenses. They owe money on the cars and to numerous credit cards and maybe even some personal loans. The stress of being debt propelled has made them open to looking at an MLM business.
They have both worked for many years, dislike their jobs and want to make money to get out of debt, out of the rat race and to begin enjoying their lives. They have no real knowledge or experience with building or running a business but think it’s easy and something they can handle without any special training.
Please forgive me if you feel this is harsh, it’s gained from being involved with MLM since 1992. It is a realistic “avatar” of the average new network marketer and is not meant to be disparaging in anyway at all.
They have not been business owners nor have they been directly involved and responsible for the setting up of a business and it’s ongoing management and operations.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not a criticism and there is absolutely nothing wrong with not having been a business owner previously. The reason I’m telling you this fact is so a little later in this article you will be able to better understand some things I need to explain.
OK lets move on.
MLM and Network Marketing is an industry of individual business owners. Yes they are working with a large company who provides the products and the compensation but pretty much by definition the networkers are owner operators of their own business. They are not employees of the product company they work with in order to distribute products.
With this in mind it’s a good time to define the relationship with any network marketer and a mlm leads company. It’s what is referred to as a B2B relationship (business to business). This is opposed to the kind of relationship a client of McDonalds has with the company. In this case it’s a B2C (business to consumer) relationship.
In a B2C relationship companies bend over backwards to make the customers happy and satisfied. For example they will have very generous return / refund policies. Most people think that sort of policy is free.
It’s not. The cost of replacement is included in the price. The company figures out how much returns and “shrinkage” (theft & shoplifting) cost them per year and simply add it to the cost of what they sell. So everyone pays for it, its not free at all.
I’ve already written a number of articles about how mlm leads are generated. It’s a very specialized niche and requires a ton of skills. Even then, to generate MLM leads is a very expensive and risky business. Leads can cost as much as $20 each to generate!
When a lead is freshly generated is its peak of value. Each hour, each day reduces the leads value greatly. After 3 days, the lead is no longer considered fresh, it’s now an aged lead worth only a fraction of what it was worth.
The client goes to any mlm lead companies site because they are excited and want to grow their business. They’ve been told that buying mlm leads is a great way to find people interested in a home business. Being a world famous mlm leads supplier I’m not going to dispute that ha ha ha ha
Training about how to call mlm leads? What?!? Who needs that?!?
They figure the leads will be just as excited as they are as soon as they tell them all about the greatest, most amazing product in the world and the fabulous amounts of money everyone can make.
Uh oh…. All of a sudden, the wheels fall off.
None of these supposedly good fresh mlm leads is the slightest bit interested in what they are trying to tell them. Obviously, these leads are not interested in a home business at all.
They feel they have been scammed by this lying, cheating mlm leads seller.
In this instance, which happens much more often than you might imagine, who is the bad guy here?
Is it the novice business owner, who didn’t bother to get any training and practice or the mlm leads company? I’ll leave that decision up to you
In an effort to minimize this type of thing happening, Apache Leads has provided FREE MLM Training for many years. It’s no secret, everything that anybody wants to do at a professional level requires training.
When I was a teenager, I wanted to be a rock star. I could never be bothered with all the time it would take to learn guitar or anything else about being a rock star. Probably why I’m in the leads business instead of in the rock n roll hall of fame. I didn’t bother to do the training.
You may recall that earlier I mentioned that MLM’ers are in a B2B relationship with their suppliers and this includes with their leads company. B2B relationships do not come with return/refund rights. That’s a right of consumers in a B2C situation.
Leads cost a lot of money to generate and all decent leads companies generate the best leads they can. They also sell them for the lowest price they can because, trust me, it’s a very competitive industry. There’s no fat in the price of leads. It’s an industry based on selling in volume and to do that you need to look after your clients.
Telling a lead company the leads will be returned and that a refund is expected is not something the leads company is going to agree to. If you doubt me, look in the terms and conditions posted in the footer of every mlm leads company website.
A bad lead is not someone who didn’t want to hear what you had to say. We have no control over what a networker says to the leads. A bad lead is a lead which cannot be contacted, i.e. their phone is disconnected.
Returning the leads makes no difference, the leads company still has copies of the leads but now that they are days old, they are not worth anywhere near as much as they were.
I know this article got a bit rough and probably I said quite a few things many people won’t like and won’t agree with. I’ve written it honestly and openly as part of our ongoing quest to pull back the curtain on the mlm leads industry so that there are no secrets, no misunderstanding between Apache Leads and its clients.
Without clients, we are nothing.
We want your success, maybe even more than you do at times. The reason we say this is obviously honest; we figure, if you buy mlm leads from Apache Leads and you become a big success you probably will recommend to your team to buy from us. Makes sense right?
Look, we know not every lead is going to be a winner.
But from where we stand we speak to hundreds of MLM’ers every week. You would be amazed at the difference in attitudes and results we see when people are using the exact same leads!
Some clients swear by them and have tremendous success, others not so much. The only difference we can ever see is the level of professionalism, attitude and training.
Those three things make a world of difference.
Look upline to when you go to a company conference or training event. The winners are grinners! They exude happiness, confidence and most importantly professionalism.
To be one of those guys, act like you are one of those guys from day one.
The good news is the opportunity to achieve and enjoy your goals and dreams is in your hands, the bad news is the opportunity to achieve and enjoy your goals and dreams is in your hands.
Choose wisely my friends, choose wisely.
Afterthoughts: this was a very difficult post to write and even more difficult deciding whether or not to publish it. On one hand I wanted to make sure there were no secrets between you and I. But it was scary to publish such a truthful, hard hitting article which was very likely to cost a lot of sales. For those who do decide to not do business with us after reading this article, I can only say, I think you missed the point. The point being would you rather work with a guy who tells you the real truth or those who hide from it?
It’s a really great question and one which many of our competitors really hate to answer. They prefer to keep quiet about it and hope that no one asks them.
Even when they are asked they will often squirm and give confusing and misleading answers designed to make it sound like the leads are not sold to anyone else.
The most common method is search engine marketing. This means the mlm leads generator places an ad on Google or other search engines. The ad will show up when anyone searches such things as “how to make money at home”, “best home business”, “work at home plans”
If the searcher clicks on the ad they will be taken to a lead capture page. The page will usually have a glossy image of a family enjoying all the money they have made from their home business. You know the kind of thing, big fancy pants house, foreign car, stacks of cash, cruise ships etc etc.
The page will have a form on it where the searcher can request more information about this exciting home business opportunity.
The form will ask for their contact information and often a bunch of other relevant questions such as how much extra money do they want per month, how many hours per week can they work in a home business, what their motivation level is. That and more.
Ok a simple enough process but actually quite expensive. None of it’s cheap. The design and construction of the lead capture page would have cost thousands of dollars. Because they didn’t build just one, they built quite a few and tested which one worked the best.
The database which collects the data from the forms cost money. The hosting of the site cost money.
Most of all the cost of advertising cost a huge amount. It probably costs around $10 to generate one lead!
Like all companies the lead generation company needs to make a profit to cover all the expenses and salaries of the staff involved in the actual lead generation. Don’t forget there are other expenses as well, administration staff, rent on the office, office furniture, equipment, utilities etc. The list is long.
In case you would like to give generating your own mlm leads a try, I wrote “The 6 Best Ways To Generate MLM Leads”
In the MLM leads industry, no one is going to be willing to pay anywhere near that much for a lead.
To make the leads available at a price which the market will bear ALL mlm leads companies sell leads more than one time. Otherwise the prices would be much more expensive, it’s just a simple fact.
Apache Leads offers top quality premium mlm leads and to make them available at a price that is attractive and beneficial to the market we sell all fresh leads up to 3 times. That depends on demand. Sometimes we have more leads than is needed and so those leads are sold less than 3 times. But, as a general rule, we sell them 3 times.
One thing to remember with Apache Leads is that our software prevents the fresh leads being shared with people working the same business. That’s why we ask you which business you are working when you set up your free Leads Manager Account.
Leads are not silly, they are going to want to look at a few businesses before deciding so, it’s really not a negative thing to share the leads.
Aged leads are, of course, leads which have been sold before and are then sold again at a vastly reduced price to reflect that they have been sold before and are also older now.
Sadly some mlm leads companies are not very ethical and will sell the leads many times in order to maximize their profits. This hurts their customers and the industry as a whole. We stand for openness, transparency and honesty. We do not support lying to our clients and do not condone these bad practices in anyway.
Toward this objective, we are not afraid to answer any question you might have.
Hopefully we have answered How Many Times Are MLM Leads Sold to your satisfaction. If we haven’t, please do feel free to ask a question in the comments below. Thanks for reading, if you got something from this, please feel free to share it and comment below.
Before getting into the real reasons you should choose wisely when buying mlm leads, please allow me to introduce myself to you.
My name is Don Reid and I first was introduced to network marketing in February, 1992. It was all very new to me and I didn’t have any of the skills which successful Network Marketers need. But, over time I acquired them by investing in training and with a lot of help from my sponsor. I listened to everything he said and went to every event, every meeting and devoured all the training.
I went on to build a moderately successful mlm business.
In August 1995, I was distracted by a new craze called the internet. My partners and I developed and operated membership sites from August 1995 to December 2000. During that time we generated gross revenue of a tad over $18,000,000.
In 2002 I decided to give MLM another shot and use the new tools the internet was providing. I joined a company based in California. It was the usual lotions and potions and a fairly standard compensation plan. There really was nothing “new”, “revolutionary” or even interesting about the products. In fact, when my monthly product shipment used to arrive, I used to throw it in the dumpster. The taste of it was really quite revolting. Even with vodka it was pretty gross.
From the day I started that revolting tasting MLM, to the day I hit the Diamond Level was only 3 months!
That’s a record in that company and probably in most others. My income at that time from that business was averaging $71,000 per month.
My rapid rise to the Diamond level was made possible by my email list of over 2 million names. Every day I was promoting the business to the list and getting dozens of people signing up.
How great was that!
A big problem just popped up to kill that.
Yep Governments all over the world were sick to death of spam and so they enacted laws which prevented sending spam email. My list was actually legitimate, everyone had signed up of their own free will. Problem was in those early days we had no proof of their signup so the email blasting had to stop.
That’s when I decided to provide leads to my group.
It had been designed just for my own downline but in no time, word spread about the great quality leads we were providing and people form all over the world began buying leads from us.
To cut a long story short, since 2003 Apache Leads has been at the forefront of providing awesome mlm leads. These days we just offer mlm leads from two countries and two types of leads. We’ve distilled a big range down to just the two best leads for network marketers.
What we have focused on is providing these very valuable tools and services to our clientele
1. Very attentive and responsive customer service which includes, toll free numbers, email contact and live chat.
2. An advanced Leads Management System which is provided at no cost to our clients. This very easy to use system is a very powerful tool for managing all your leads, reporting bad leads, pausing and resuming delivery, setting delivery times to the the minute in your own time zone and downloading.
3. Free mlm training. As you now know, I’ve built two mlm businesses and have learnt a lot since 1992. I’ve shared my experiences, script, tips and shortcuts in a number of books which are available on the site.
4. MLM Leads which are premium quality, the very best there is. For example, the Australian Premium Leads are the only phone interviewed Australian leads in the world.
The value of the leads you invest in is directly related to the result they can bring to you.
Before we go any further, a word of warning. Many people new to MLM make the biggest mistake of all, they choose to believe they have all the skills needed to call leads and sponsor them.
It’s a silly as thinking, “I know how to use a phone so I know how to make calls”, they don’t. The people who make this mistake are excited with their new busienss and think as soon as they mention it to some stranger, that stranger is going to be as excited as them and want to get int he business.
They forget they were approached by a professional and given a professional presentation, that’s what got them excited.
Anyone calling mlm leads without training, practice and a script is doomed to failure and will quit the business in a very short time.
Everyone needs to be teachable.
OK, enough said
Now if you invest time and effort to teach this new person to duplicate your methods, they are very likely to follow your example and begin buying good quality leads, making calls and recruiting people of their own.
Now how much are they worth to you?
Hopefully now you understand, investing in quality mlm leads will bring awesome value and massive returns for you. Returns which keep paying off to you, year after year
The very best, fully guaranteed MLM leads are the Premium Grade. Both the U.S. and AU versions are incredibly good value. Heed my words about getting training, practice and a proven script BEFORE selecting and calling these mlm leads to enjoy the biggest return.

Why, How and Where to Buy the Best MLM Leads
Everyone in Network Marketing is always wondering; where to get more mlm leads. Well wonder no more! In this post I’m going to show you exactly where you can acquire more mlm leads. It is a true saying that mlm leads are the life blood of your business. I like to use the analogy of your business being a vehicle which can drive you closer to your dreams and the mlm leads are the fuel for your vehicle. Now the thing is you can drive your car slow or you can drive it fast. Of course, fast is better if it’s getting you to your dreams right?
Generating your own leads is definitely a thing. Like anything it needs some skill to generate your own mlm leads. But it’s truly doable and if you get good at it, you will generate exclusive mlm leads which only you have access to. I wrote a detailed post covering The 6 Best Ways To Generate MLM Leads have a read of it and you will be on your way to feeding your vehicle with premium gas!
One of the things I used to do to generate my own mlm leads before the internet was to go to trade shows. It still works now, just most people don’t bother to do it. It’s really easy and produces excellent mlm leads. Trade shows are packed with exhibitors who mostly hate their boring jobs. They are there to promote and sell their company’s products and service so of course they are super easy to approach. During the conversation, it’s very likely they will ask you something along the lines of what industry or job you are doing. BINGO! As soon as they ask that you give them your practiced and polished Elevator Pitch. If they are interested in learning more (which they should be if you have a good elevator pitch) then grab their card and tell them you’ll give them a call to make a time to get together. Too easy right?
OK I understand that some people are very reluctant to buy mlm leads. That’s because either they or someone they know has been burned by bad mlm leads companies in the past. Yes, it’s a damn pity that there are some scammy lead sellers in the industry. On the other hand there are some truly excellent mlm leads companies and it’s super easy to tell the difference. I recently wrote a post called where to buy the best mlm leads its definitely worth taking a look and then being able to buy the best mlm leads for your business vehicle without any risk.
As a word of warning there are a ton of different types of mlm leads and a lot of dirty little secrets the industry would prefer you never find out, so….
I started in the mlm leads business way back in 2003. I’ve done well in this industry because I’ve always made sure Apache Leads was transparent and fair dealing. Many mlm leads sellers have come and gone during that time, mostly because they don’t do the right thing by their clients, they are more interested in a short cut to riches.
My allegiance is to you, my client, because without you, I have no business. My success is tied to your success.
That’s why I wrote a training book which exposes the bad mlm leads and the bad leads companies and their dirty little secrets. It’s called Everything You Ever Needed To Wanted To Know About Leads or you can get it and other mlm books for free on our MLM Training page.
I answer a lot of live chat and support emails on the site and the biggest misconception I hear from new people is this: They think MLM Leads are going to jump into business with them as soon as they call them up. Please allow me to dis-spell that myth. I made a video here called MLM Leads are NOT Magic Beans MLM Leads really are a fantastic tool for your business and when you invest in good leads and use them professionally you will reach your goals and dreams faster. Invest in yourself and master the skills required to make the most of the mlm leads you acquire. No matter if you generate your own mlm leads or buy the best mlm leads, you still need to treat them like people and be a leader and not a needy baby.
I hope you enjoyed this post and got something from it. At least you now know Where To Get More MLM Leads.

Where To Get More MLM Leads
Do you know what bad mlm leads are?
Let’s cover that first so you are up to speed on them. Bad mlm leads are leads sold by scammy leads companies. Sadly yes, there are still a few of them taking advantage of people. But with the information in this post, you should be more knowledgeable and able to avoid buying mlm leads which are less than premium shall we say.
The bad guys are always going to be offering you deals which sound way too good to be true. That’s because they are.
Bad MLM Leads have these telltale signs:
So now you know the telltale signs of bad mlm leads, lets move onto bad mlm leads sellers.
Well, you’re on one of the best sites right now. But yeah, OK, I know you want to know more.
Good, Professional MLM Leads Sites have the following things in common:
There are a few of us who have been supplying quality, guaranteed leads for a long time. I founded Apache Leads in 2003. So a long time in the business is a very good sign of where to buy the best mlm leads
Leads are supposed to bring you a profit via giving you real people who are genuinely interested in a home business. Leads are quite expensive to generate, so that’s why good ones cost more than the cheap ones offered by scammy sites.
Remember this though, leads are not just going to jump at the chance as soon as you call them. A lot of network marketing newbies make that mistake and then complain the leads are no good. NO! It’s not that the leads are no good, it’s the newbie who was no good at calling and being a real leader. Imagine someone you have never met calls you up and begins asking you personal questions about your desires, your income, you ability to work a business etc etc. How eager are you going to be to respond nicely and give all the answers.
Remember, it’s the person calling the leads job to be professional, be courteous and listen. Listen to what they say, not just spit out the next line in your script. Learn to be patient and genuinely try to understand and help them.
Anyway, that’s where to buy the best mlm leads in a nutshell. Watch out for the scammers, deal with professional mlm lead companies and be a great caller.
You will definitely make it to your goals and dreams and then…
These 4 hotdogs cost less than 50 cents for the lot and sadly that was well overpriced. We ended up giving them away to some hungry looking street kids, who definitely appreciated them much more than we would have.
We were a little excited and loud but seemed to keep the staff and customers amused and entertained for quite some time.
This one is a selfie including the lovely girls who put up with our idiocy while still managing to cook and serve the other customers
Davao City is the home town of the current President. He was the Mayor here for many years. His daughter is the current mayor. President Duterte ran this city with an iron fist. He got rid of all the drug dealers and most criminals. His methods are very controversial. It’s basically using vigilantes to gun down dealers on the streets. In the past 90 days over 2,000 killings have taken place around the country. No one seems to think that’s bad.
Davao City is one of the safest cities in the Philippines. Mind you that’s not saying much as the entire country is really quite dangerous.
Funnily enough it never actually feels dangerous in Davao. We first came here in 2013 and established a company here (Shenanigans Inc) and opened an office. The office is the workplace for about 35 people who mostly work for my son, Kris. He has built a very successful business which helps websites rank well on Google and manages their reputations. If you need some work along thos elines, please do check out Ardor SEO
I’m currently here to train some new Customer Support staff who you will soon be interacting with on the phone and live chat. Also it had been a few years since I was last here.
NEW SERVICE: Would your website benefit from providing a 24/7 live chat service? Because we have the trained staff here anyway, we can very easily provide the same service for your website. We can take calls, take live chats and even respond to emails. Contact us for more information
Speaking of websites, one thing yours really needs is visitors. The company you are with mos tlikely provides you with a beautiful, informative site which just needs people to come and visit it. The more people who come to it, the more who will join your business. There are a few ways you can increase the visitors to your site. You can try getting the site to rank in google, but that will be quite difficult and take a lot of time.
You can buy traffic from Facebook advertising which is instant and can be targeted specifically to give you very high quality visitors. Of course there is a learning curve involved with this but its really not very hard. You could probably get a campaign going within one day. If you would like to learn from experts, I highly recommend joining Digital Marketer. This link takes you to a $1 Trial (not an affiliate link)
The other way to get targeted traffic to your website is to simply buy a package from us. Yes we sell home based business traffic and if you order today you can have some home business seekers coming to your site iwthin 24 hours.
We dear reader, it’s a big holiday here for a festival and I can hear drums beating and must be away to investigate and no doubt get up to soem sort of shenanigans.
Meanwhile, please share this post, like it and or comment. I do love to hear your thoughts and always reply to every comment. Also have you seen our Apache Leads Facebook page? I have to say it’s pretty good and has a bunch of great stuff on there. Check it out
Late next week I’ll be heading to Bangkok for a couple of nights to meet with a business associate to discuss a joint venture. Of course we will have our meeting over a few refreshing drinks at the worlds most famous alley bar, Cheap Charlies. It’s the most amazingly weird bar I’ve ever seen and is always a “must visit” on any trip to Bangkok. Sadly it will be closing soon to make way for yet another Hotel, so if you’re going to get to Charlies, you better get going on it.
After Bangkok, Then Theary and I are going to Pattaya (Thailand) for a few days in what looks like a gorgeous hotel on the beach. It’s 5 star and cost a measley $35 per night for a luxury room with ocean view. Pattaya is a short freeway ride to the east of Bangkok. It’s a mixture of wild crazy nightlife and upmarket resort and retirement places.
Then we will fly down to Davao City (Philippines) to our office and interview some staff for customer support and call center duties. Davao is where the new President of the Philippines was the Mayor for many years. He ruled with an iron fist and is alleged to have a vigilante force which were ruthless in wiping out serious crime, in particular drug dealing. Davao City may have been thefirst city in the world to entrely ban smoking.
After a couple of weeks in Davao we will need to get to a beach again so, on the 30th August we will probably go to Phuket, (Thailand)
So a busy month coming up
I really had to give posting this quite a lot of thought because some people are definitely going to take it the wrong way. They will label me as a show off asshole. Well yeah ok, that’s up to them but they are missing the point.
The point is that when you and I mean you, achieve time and money freedom this is how you could choose to spend a month. Occasionaly, sharing some of my rather frequent trips and adventures is to prove to you that it really all is possible. Sure, there are things we all need to learn in order to build a business and often that is going to take soem personal development as well.
Think about it, if we all knew how to build a business and had already been blessed with an awesome personality then it stands to reason we already would have a huge booming business which was still growing everyday.
I had to learn so much stuff and still have to study every day, because if I don’t I’m afraid that I’ll go backwards and no one likes to go backwards. This blog you are on right now has a ton of tips and mini-lessons which WILL help you grow your business faster. We also have a FREE club for those wanting even more free training. It’s called “The Insiders Club”

They Laughed When I Joined an MLM But When I Walked Across Stage…
When you first join an MLM / Network Marketing company many, if not all, your friends and family are going to laugh. They will do this either to your face or behind your back, but laugh they will. I know, they all did it to me.
You may wonder why are they doing this. They are your friends and family right? These are the people who are meant to …well maybe not love you but at least like you right? Just kidding, there is no doubt your mum loves you.
The reason they are laughing is not because they don’t like you, in fact it’s probably the opposite, they do like you. They just don’t want you to be a success. Deep inside they want you to fail and be just like them. It’s a sad fact that if you are a success then it makes them look bad because your success would remove all their reasons for being a failure.
Maybe you haven’t seen this with your own eyes but it’s a true thing. If you have a bucket of live crabs, every now and then you will see one climb up on top of the others and reach up to the rim of the bucket. As this daring crab struggles to pull himself out of the bucket and find freedom all of a sudden he will be noticed by the
others who will literally grab him and pull him back down to their level
You need to be like a knight in shining armor. The knights wore armor to protect themselves from attack by swords and other nasty weapons. People are going to attack you, not with weapons but with words.
You need to wear armor against these attacks to protect yourself and to keep your dream alive. Stay positive and don’t let anyone steal your dream
When I joined an MLM in 2002 everyone laughed and tried to steal my dream. I worked hard on building that business from early in the morning until late at night, every day. It wasn’t easy work but it was a lot easier than digging a ditch in the hot summer sun for a living, which I’ve also done.
Every day I was getting over 100 free signups and over 10 paid signups, sometimes 30 or more in a day. My business had momentum and it came from being focused and doing what was needed to grow the business.
No one ever asked me if I liked this work, no one cared and neither did I. I didn’t like it at all but I was getting more and more excited every day as I saw more people joining my business. No one helped, no one applauded along the way. Lots of people looked down on me and even laughed.
It was a huge event where they recognized new levels people had achieved. Thousands of people were there and it was a great opportunity to finally meet many of the people in my business for the very first time. What a rush as they treated me like a celebrity, it was like they all knew me already. I really was getting quite light headed from it all.
Eventually my name was called from the stage. A big slide announced my name and my new level. I walked up onto the stage to a tumultuous applause and
cheering. I honestly felt incredibly self-conscious. But what a blast looking out at the huge crowd all clapping for me as the founder came and congratulated me for reaching the new level of Diamond in record time!
It was all worth it and no one ever laughed about it again, especially when I showed them my monthly checks!
Have the last laugh, do the work, protect your dream and we will ….
9 Reasons to Quit Your Job As Soon As You CanYou know, I had quite a lot of jobs in my time, my first one was delivering meds on my bicycle for the local pharmacy, then I moved up to pumping gas. Didn’t mind that one so much because I learned how to fix punctures, hang around with the guys and they had one of those old Coke machines which kept the Coke really cold. Plus being 14 at the time I couldn’t resist stealing a pack of cigarettes now and then.
Working on construction sites installing elevators was really cool, after I conguered my fear of heights. We were working on a 25 story hotel. At lunch time we used to slide down the elevator shaft on a rope and head to the pub. I was 17 at the time, so I didnt get adult pay. I was risking my life every day for about $38 per week. Crazy. I was living in a hostel at the time and fell in love with a beautiful blond girl, we still stay in touch on Facebook.
I worked a few different jobs on contruction sites and then worked in the shipping department for a few book and stationery stores. This was repetitive boring work, so of course in no time shenanigans took over.
Then I joined the Royal Australian Navy at 18 and became an Electronics Technician. My job was to control and maintain the guided missile system. Better than any computer game! Loved this job, lots of travel, lots of girls and great mates.
After being discharged I worked for Unisys (Sperry Univac) as a Customer Engineer.
Then for Chubb Security as a Sales Rep. Quite liked that but we got a new manager with new rules so I left. I’m not much for following senseless bureaucratic rules.
In 1984 I went into partnership with an Australian security company which also took me to California where I opened a new office. That was really interesting but sadly we had a falling out
Next I had a job in the same game but really felt frustrated and unappreciated, so I started my own company doing electrical and security contracting. That’s when the economy decided to go nuts, interest rates for overdrafts was 18%, jobs were scarce and my overhead was really high.
A builder who was into me for $500,000 went broke. Of course the domino effect sent my small company to the wall and I lost everything including the house.
That’s when I joined Amway. I took a job selling parking control systems during the day and showed the Amway opportunity nearly every night. No such thing as leads in those days so it was hard work prospecting people and getting front of them.
In 1994 I learned about the internet and loved it. Especially liked chat but in those days it was really quite difficult to use. So I got a bunch of programmers together and we built a really revolutionary, easy to use chat program which used avatars and simulated text to speech.
It went nowhere.
The thing with the internet is, it’s always evolving so as that caper tappered off I went into email marketing and used it to build an MLM business with a San Diego based company called Life Force.
It was an amazing ride, I went from newbie to Diamond Level in 3 or 4 months.
In 2003 I founded Apache Leads. Been pretty stable and happy ever since.
In this story I’ve left out quite a few jobs I had along the way, just to keep this narrative a bit shorter. My point in all this is to not be afraid to quit a job or start a business.
Don’t be afraid of what people think, who cares what they think, it’s your one and only life, don’t waste it doing things you hate.
When you feel it’s time for a change, don’t wait until all the lights are green, they never will be, you should just go for it!
These days I work hard but have a lot of freedom. I travel the world, live in interesting places, have many adventures and it’s all because my business provides the freedom.
Have a read of this article I found on Entrepreneur.com
It’s written by LinkedIn Influencer, Jeff Haden, published this post originally on LinkedIn.
Quit your job to take a better paying position? Definitely. Quit your job for a great opportunity? Absolutely.
But there are a lot more reasons to quit your job (once you have something else lined up, of course.) And they all fall under one main category:
Life’s too short.Life’s too short to go home every day feeling unfulfilled. Life’s too short to work for a terrible boss. Life’s too short to go home every day feeling taken for granted, feeling taken less than seriously, or feeling taken advantage of.
Life’s short to not be as happy as you can be.
Say your grown daughter called and said, “I hate my job. I’m bored, frustrated, and feel like I’m going nowhere.” Wouldn’t you tell her to look for another job?
Shouldn’t you follow the same advice?
Here are reasons to stop being miserable and start looking for something better:
1. Your input is disregarded… or even not wanted.Everyone has ideas. And everyone loves when their ideas are taken seriously – and implemented. The feeling that you’ve contributed in a special way is incredibly gratifying.But when your boss or company shoots down or even laughs at your ideas, that’s not only insulting, it’s demotivating. And pretty soon you stop caring.Life’s too short not to care.
2. You get criticized publicly.We all need constructive feedback. We all need a little nudge. We all need to be told when we can do something better – and how to do it better.But we need to be told those things in private.Life’s too short to walk around waiting for the next time you’ll be criticized – and even humiliated – in front of other people.
3. You never hear the word, “Thanks.”Everyone also needs praise. We all need to know when we do something well (and everyone, even poor performers, do some things well.)Life’s too short not to be recognized for the contributions you make.
4. Your boss manages up, not down.You know the type: as a leader they should focus their time and attention on their direct reports, but they spend all their time “following” their boss. It seems like your only job is to contribute to the greater glory – and advancement – of your boss.A great boss knows that if her team succeeds – and each individual on that team succeeds – then she will succeed too.Life’s too short to spend your time developing your boss’s career at the expense of your own.
5. You feel like you have no purpose.Everyone likes to feel a part of something bigger. Everyone likes to feel they make an impact not just on results but also on the lives of other people.Life’s too short to go home every day feeling like you’ve worked… but you haven’t accomplished anything meaningful.
6. You feel like a number.Everyone is replaceable. Everyone, ultimately, works for a paycheck. But everyone also wants to work for more than a paycheck. They want to work with people they respect admire… and they want to be respected and admired in return.If your boss doesn’t occasionally stop for a quick discussion about family, an informal conversation to see if you need an help, or simply to say a kind word… then you’re just a cog in a larger machine.Life’s too short to only be a cog in a larger machine.
7. You aren’t even mildly excited to go to work.Every job has its downsides. (I’m willing to bet even Richard Branson has to do a few things he doesn’t enjoy.) But every job should also have some fun moments. Or exciting moments. Or challenging moments. Or some aspect that makes you think, “I’m looking forward to doing that…”Life’s too short to spend only looking forward to quitting time.
8. You can’t see a future.Every job should lead to something: hopefully a promotion, but if not the opportunity to take on additional responsibilities, learn new things, tackle new challenges… to feel like tomorrow has the potential to be different – in a good way – than today.A decent boss works to improve the company’s future. A good boss works to improve her employees’ futures too, even if – especially if – that might mean some of those employees will eventually move on to bigger and better things.Life’s too short to live without hope.
9. You don’t think you can do anything else.That’s the best reason of all quit your job. I know what you’re thinking, “I make too much in my current job; I’ll never find something comparable.” Or, “There just aren’t any jobs where I live.” Or, “I’ve put too much time into this company (or career or industry.)”
All those things are true – if you let them be true.You can do something else. You can do lots of something “elses.”You just have to believe – and trust that your creativity, perseverance, and effort will take you to new, happier, and more fulfilling places.
Life’s too short to just stay where you are instead doing everything possible to live a better life.
