So…you're struggling to put time in. Let's chat about how to build a network marketing business with little or no time.
The two biggest objections we get from our prospects are:
“I don't have the time.” and “I don't have the money.”
To me…those seem like two very good reasons to DO a network marketing business, don't you think? Well…how about when someone joins your business and they say they don't have the time. That's a problem!
If someone is lacking in time, they need figure out how to find the time…even if they think there is none.
On thing to consider if you're in network marketing and NOT putting the time in is this:
If creating success was that important to you, you'd find the time. When you make it a priority, you'll find the time.
You may have to give up or sacrifice a few things that you're doing now, or do a little less of some of those things that are taking up the time…but success in network marketing will ultimately free up a lot of your time to go back and do those things you love doing.
Success in anything requires some sacrifice. Some things are negotiable. And…some are not.
For example, I don't think cutting out date night with your spouse or stopping going to church on Sundays is a good idea. Those should be priorities in your life…and are not negotiable. However, poker night with the boys and that extra round of golf on Saturdays may have to go for awhile for you to make room for your business.
Two Ways to Find the Time When you Have None
#1 Track your Time for a Week. Pull out a legal pad and log your day in 15-minute increments over a week to see exactly where all your time goes. You'll very likely find gaps in your time. You might find 10-minutes here and 15-minutes there throughout your day.
Something has to give. You need to decide what it is that you're willing to give and give up in order to create room for you to do your business.
ALL of those gaps…those crooks and crannies of your day can add up to significant business building time. The KEY is looking at your time differently.
Most people take a break or have some down time and don't even consider that they could sit down and prospect for their business for 10 or 15 minutes. Those small pockets of time over a month can add up to quite a bit of business building activity.
A commute to work, a drive to the post office or grocery store…all of them can add up and create opportunities for you to grow your business.
If you're going to create change in your life…you need to look at your schedule and take advantage of those gaps.
#2: Proper Planning will Create Opportunities for you to Build.
If you're simply prepared, you'll be able to take advantage of those small gaps of time.
It's all about preparation.
You take your prospect list with you wherever you go. You've heard the phrase, “luck is when preparedness meets opportunity?”
You're going to create success in network marketing when you make it a point to take your prospect list wherever you go. My list is with me at all times. I don't leave home without it. Ever.
If you want to build your network marketing business with little or no time, the only way you're going to get that time back is by taking advantage of the small gaps during your day and turning them into productive time.
Even if you had only 5-minutes on the way into work…and 5-minutes on the way home, that could very well be TWO invites a day. Two invites a day, 5-days a week turns into a LOT of invites over a year.
Remember…if it's that important to you, you'll make the time!
I hope you find this useful if you're one of those people who are struggling to find the time to put into building your network marketing business.
