“As long as you are staying true to who you are, there are plenty of fish in the sea for you to help.”
Brooke Elder (21:53 - 22:00) Why you don’t have to worry about what others think as an Authentic Influencer.
The mission of Social Tenacity is to change the way network marketing is perceived. So you can imagine our fury when we stumbled upon a fellow network marketer’s (who shall remain
nameless) Facebook page. A post read, “The catch to network marketing is you must accept a temporary loss of social esteem from ignorant people.” Excuse us? That’s just plain rude! Also, entirely incorrect.
It’s actually not okay for you to be spammy, make your friends hate you, and assume everyone is dumb. It’s this kind of limiting mindset that got us podcasting in the first place. The career of a network marketer doesn’t have to be loathed or cringeworthy. It can actually be esteemed and enjoyable. When you become an Authentic Influencer you don’t have to worry about what others think. You can keep respect and gain success just by being YOU!
“You don’t need to lose the respect and esteem of others in order to have success. Will some people not get it? Yes. But if they don’t get it, it’s better if they don’t get it on account of you being you and not someone else!” - NiCole Easton (5:53 - 6:11)
True network marketing is about taking what you are awesome at
and sharing it with the world in an authentic way through a product
Here are the ways to become an Authentic Influencer and stand firm in who you are.
“It comes down to this. Are you going to own who you are, and what you want to do? Or are you going to apologize for it?” - NiCole Easton (10:23 - 10:31)
It’s easy to get sucked into the stigmatized attitude and belief of what a career as a network marketer entails - harassment, spamming, and brainwashing. While some people sadly participate in such methods (with an army of minions), it’s comforting to know there is a better, more authentic way. All you have to do is be yourself! No one can argue or take offense to that. Even if they do, when you decide that other people’s opinions and thoughts are not going to change who you authentically are, you stand in a place of abundance. You embrace who you are and set your sights on those who you can help while letting go of those you can’t. So go ahead and cast your line out! There are plenty of fish in the sea who want and need your help.
This week, test out this theory. Head to your social media page and tell your story. Ask whether anyone resonates and see who responds! Use that inspiration to push forward. Become an Authentic Influencer and own who you are to make your greatest impact!
