There is an idea in network marketing that goes something like:

You are, in essence, running a voluntary workforce.  Thus, it is difficult to require your team to be coachable, to follow your system and generally follow professional business standards.

I disagree!

No Payroll
True your network marketing business is different from a typical brick and mortar business.  You have no payroll to govern your standards.

However, because you aren’t paying people on your network marketing team (your company pays them) does not mean you can’t (or shouldn’t) require professional business standards.  You put something far more important than money on the table.  What?

Your time.

If you’re giving someone your time, you get to govern the business standards.  Sponsoring someone requires you train and mentor them.  That takes your time.  The exchange (and requirement) for guiding someone to success

Professional. Standards.

Giving someone the best help you can is reason enough to require professional standards from them.  However, giving someone your most precious commodity, your time, makes professional standards in return non-negotiable.

Hold Your Standards
You are the expert.  Hold your standards.  You deserve it and so does your team.  Do you think this is true?  I’d love to hear why or why not.  Let me know here or join the conversation on Facebook.
