Breaking Down Barriers and overcoming Rejection


“We're real people. We're real moms. We're actually making real money and it's not a pyramid scheme. ”


Livvy Cunningham


Today is Podcast 149 where Brooke and Livvy Cunningham have a discussion about breaking down the barriers in the network industry because network marketing has kind of this bad, stereotypical view on it. And that's not really what it's like.  


Livvy is a wife and mother of four who has been in the industry for about nine years. She went to Boston University in their school of management and graduated with a degree with a concentration in marketing. She was a powerful woman in the corporate world, then got married and started a family. Her second child was born with a serious heart condition and she made the decision to leave the business world and became a full time mom. That’s when she discovered network marketing.


“It's a mindset thing. You have to be confident in what you're doing.” - Livvy Cunningham.


People might be interested in joining your team or your company, but they have friends and family whispering the stereotypical garbage in their ear. You have to be confident in what you're doing and be proud of the work that you are doing.


If people really only took a time to just check it out for themselves instead of just buying into the industry hate, they would see that it's so much different and would see that it's actually amazing products that you're spending money on.


It's very hard to be successful and be able to share that success without having haters, , but it's a part of the industry. It's the part of the process, no matter what your product is.


It’s going back to mindset. All you're doing is presenting and then giving the person the opportunity to say,” yeah, that sounds cool, or no, thank you.” 


They're not saying no thank you to you, or you're the worst or no I don't like you. It's not,you, it's just not the right time. You're going to hear nos, but it's not personal. It's not a reflection of you and who you are. 


“It's rough when you're putting yourself out there and people are rude. You just have to learn to let it roll off your back. ” - Livvy Cunningham. 


If you would like to connect with Livvy, just send her a friend request on Facebook. You can hang out with her in her VIP group, it's not a salesy group at all. They hang out, talk, crack jokes, post memes and have discussions about being a mom, about being a woman and all of the things we face.
