In this week’s podcast episode I chat with the Network Marketing legend “Anthony Powell” who has created a tonne of millionaires and lead 10’s of 1,000’s to a life of freedom through residual income.
Anthony was mentored by one of the self development greats “Jim Rohn” and he shares his advice on how you can become a dynamic leader in the Network Marketing industry.
Here is the episode with Anthony Powell on becoming a Network Marketing Legend
Here are 6 key takeaways from Anthony Powell’s interview:
1. How to become a great leader
You have to be willing to be the one who does it first. You have to establish what your why is and what’s going to make you get out of bed no matter what. In order to become a great leader you need to learn to lead from the front not from the back.
Leading from the back is telling someone to do it then you’ll do it after them. You have to be the one who develops the real skill set not the theory.
2. When you’re just starting out
People think they are going to find a few individuals that are going to make them rich. You have to have a passion for your product that you’re selling.
If you don’t have a passion for your product it won’t align with your values. You also need to understand what your goals are. Understand your 30 day goals, 60 day goals, 90 day goals, 1 year goals, 5 year goals and 10 year goals.
Once you understand your overall goals, you will understand the work that needs to go into making those goals a reality.
3. How to become a dynamic speaker
Do the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes in the beginning. It’s always hard to tell your story at the beginning, but over time telling your story more and more starts getting easier. Whether you’re speaking to 1 or 1,000, always be genuine.
Making eye contact is a good way to let them know you are speaking to them.
4. What to do with your money when you make it
First thing is to pay your taxes. Open up a checking and savings account and whenever you get paid put at least 40%-50% of your money into a savings account and put it aside for your taxes. Take 25% of the left 50% to build your business. Then with the last 25% you can use that for more savings or your living.
You’re only number one once. When you’re no longer number one you need to be able to live like you’re still number one.
5. Discipline your disappointments
You have to be excited when things aren’t working or not happening for you. You have to be able to keep that same level even when things are happening.
When something happens, you accept it, write it down, and keep moving forward.
