I just returned from speaking in Budapest
Hungary at the MLM Mastermind Day event.

You can check out my pictures from the
event if you would like at:

Thee were about 500 people in attendance
from all over Europe. I had a wonderful
time and Szilárd Mátrai the promoter of the
event did a great job.

When 2009 is over I will have spoken at 23
events. 21 within the United States and 2
Internationally.

I try to always learn more than I teach when
I travel and speak. Sometimes it is just a
reminder of what NOT to do.

There are 3 things I learned in Hungary that
all networkers, especially those in the United
States should take to heart.

(1) Education is required to become Successful

I was shocked at the percent of the audience who
arrived at the event with paper and pen in hand,
ready to learn. I would estimate it was 85%. In
the US it is usually around 30%. People were there
to learn. It was NOT a social gathering.

I guess one of the problems in the US is there are
thousands of “self proclaimed” gurus trying to teach
you fluff training, and quite frankly taking notes
is not worth the effort. However it is your
responsibility if you want to grow, learn, and get
better to learn from those that really have something
valuable to teach.

SELF EDUCATED you create a fortune”

(2) The Top Income Earners don’t jump from company to
company

I could talk for a few hours on why this happens so
frequently in the US. Some are valid reasons, but
most simply come down to greed and ego.

There were several Top Income Earners from all over Europe
at this event (With Pen & Paper in Hand) The majority of
them had been with their current company at least 5 years.

I have talked about this in various articles, Blog Post &
MLM Minute Trainings so I am not going to try to expand
here. True leaders develop leaders. Others, who have
leadership “titles” are only interested in developing a
following. There is a huge difference.

Who are you following? Where are they taking you? Is a
question you should constantly be asking yourself.

(3) Live Open Opportunity Meetings are Alive and Well

At one point I asked how many of you have a weekly, live
opportunity meeting you can take a prospect to? Ladies
and gentleman it was 85% of the room!

I found that very encouraging in a time when everyone
in the US has been spouting opportunity meetings don’t
work for the last 15 years.

Anyone remember the cassette tape
“I love MLM, but I hate Meetings?”

It was hogwash 15 years ago when the cassette came out,
and it is hogwash now! Yet another example of “self
proclaimed gurus” telling people what they WANT TO HEAR!

Don’t tell the leadership team at Mona V LIVE OPPORTUNITY
MEETINGS don’t work! We have all witnessed what they
have done with a culture, centered around a live weekly
opportunity meeting. ( I promise you it is NOT the Juice)

Do you get that company owners? I find it fascinating that
those in charge think. It must be the juice. How many
companies have introduced a Juice product since the success
of Xango, Noni and Mona V?

Products don’t make you successful!

Long term success is always centered around the right support
structure, sytems and culture for YOUR PEOPLE. Haven’t
we learned anything from Amway?

I am absolutely amazed at how shallow visions most
companies have. People make companies successful.
It is the culture and systems you provide for the people
that ultimately determine a companies success.

Sorry, I have gotten side tracked a little, but one
more thought.

At company conventions they don’t want to see corporate
on stage talking about numbers. They want to see their
peers, people like them who have experienced the ups and
downs of building a network marketing team, but in the
end…..THEY DID IT

There is a SPECIFIC FORMULA for making events one
people will never forget. I have been wanting to
write a book on it, but unfortunately there would be
no market for it. You can’t help those, who already
have all the answers :}

Again, I could talk about this subject for hours. But
the bottom line is simply this. If live weekly meetings
are not working for you it is simply because you have a
lousy meeting,or the wrong people.

Hungarians are friendly, warm hearted people. The MLM
Industry is alive and well there and throughout Europe.

so why far too many Americans are “following” their “Leader”
to the next hot deal. Hungarians are diligently learning the
skills and attitudes necessary to become a network marketing
professional and staying true to their companies and long
term goals.
