Thinking like a Business Owner


“Your business doesn't start until you start talking to people outside of your friends and family.”


Majid Zafer



In Podcast 143 Brooke has a conversation with Majid Zafer, a brilliant business minded person  who believes that whatever skill sets that you learn in network marketing are very applicable to traditional business also. 


Majid was kind of forced into network marketing at a very young age, his parents joined Amway when he was ten years old. He went to every Amway convention and learned from a lot leaders. If you can run a successful network marketing company, you would probably also run a successful business, but that comes with its pain points too. Every network marketer has thought of quitting at least multiple times. And if you haven't, you haven't worked hard enough. 


“It is great to be inspired, but it's most important to be true to yourself .” - Majid Zafer


Business mindset is key on multiple fronts because what it really is, is person development. It might be a journey for you to take and the best thing that's gonna happen for you through that journey is who you are going to evolve into and who you are going to evolve into is really gonna be the catalyst for whatever you're going to create. 


The process of creation is how you take what you think might be impossible and bring it into the realm of possibility, even if you don't know how you're going to get there. The thing that stops a lot of people is that they feel that they need to succeed based on what they know. It's really in the unknown where the bounty is and really striving towards that. Bounty is a key not being fixed in who you are or what you're doing, it's just in the ability to create


It's not about how much money you make, it's about how you want to live. It's not about knowing how you're going to do it. It's about claiming that, are you going to do it? And then the universe really brings and attracts to you where you're going to need to be able to accomplish it. But you’ve  got to speak it first. 


Your thoughts and your words are like the instructions to the universe, so when you speak it and you let everybody know, then subconsciously you will also start looking for things to be able to make that possibility a reality. 


It's really about leading with you and not your company and really growing you because when you focus on you and you grow, you will always be good. No matter what happens to your company, if you know what happens to your sales, what happens to your team, if you work on you, that's the greatest dividend that you will get out of this journey. 


“The space is shifting. If you don't shift along with it, people will not want to do business with you.” - Majid Zafer. 


If you want to build an organization, long-term the glue is your strength of your relationships. It’s your tribe you're building and your personal brand ties into that. If you really find a way to enjoy the process, then you've already won.  If you would like to connect with Majid and learn more about his tips on thinking like a business owner you can find him on Linkedin or on Facebook
