Overcoming your own expectations to Find Success


“ Everybody should just do what makes them happy, whether your family or whatever thinks otherwise.”


Kelly Cable



When people first start a business in network marketing sometimes they think it will be easy if they just follow the script and instructions from their upline. That is not so!!!! In Podcast 164 Brooke interviews Kelly Cable who is an amazing example of someone who has overcome the challenges of building a successful business.


Kelly has been in the network marketing business and started out the normal way with the emails of scripts and pictures that you're supposed to use. She did it all the spammy Tammy ways and everybody was doing great around her and she thought she must be doing something wrong because she was struggling and becoming deeper in product debt.


“It's not that I was doing something wrong necessarily, but I didn't have the right mindset. ” - Kelly Cable


The mindset shift that brings success is to meet people, to find ways to connect with them, to see what they need and what you can provide to help them as opposed to just making a sale. 


Stop doing all the advertising and posting everywhere. Connect yourself to a brand and just create a presence online for yourself. 


You don’t have to have links posted everywhere. Just talk about your products all the time, in normal conversations and on your social media. You're not trying to get people to buy necessarily and that's the idea, people don't feel pushed.


Building a successful business takes time. There are a lot of learning lessons along the road, so you don’t want to move too fast. When you move too fast, it creates more problems and challenges than you really would even think that it would. It doesn't give you that opportunity to make those small adjustments and to fail small before you fail big.


When you do have an idea for a business just go ahead and do it! Don't feel like you have to do every step in creating a legal business before you come forth with your idea because then you're kind of stuck. Don’t listen to everybody by saying, don't post this or that on social media, post what you want and you're going to find those people who love you. 


“Step away from caring about what people think of you and find what works for you.” - Kelly Cable. 


If you would like to connect with Kelly, you can follow her on Facebook , Instagram and LinkedIn, but Facebook is definitely the best place to find and talk to her, just search her name, Kelly Cable.
