With over 10 years experience in direct sales and digital marketing, I've helped thousands of women learned that being an authentic influencer is the key to success.

“Having a coach on your side gives you the ability to get through the dips faster and reach your goals.”

Brooke Elder (15:14 - 15:24)

Are you at an all-time low on your journey as a network marketer? The average length of a network marketing career is only 3 months. In the beginning, everything feels exciting. You may start with high hopes of retiring your husband early and taking your kids to Disneyland. 

But as time goes on, reality sets in, and you can slide further into a deep and discouraging dip. Reaching out for guidance helps you climb your way out and achieve your best self. 

“When you’re in the space of trying to decide if you should quit or not, determine whether it’s a short-term strategy or a long-term strategy. Quitting for the long-term can actually be a very good idea.” - Tricia Peterson (2:03-2:18)

Have you discovered that network marketing is more challenging than you originally thought? If you’re thinking of quitting just because everything feels hard, then you’re settling for average. 

You should only quit for the right reasons. 

The bottom of the dip is the worst place to quit. It’s a good idea to stop before you slide down or after you’ve climbed out of it. Ask yourself, “If I choose to quit now, then how will my life change and my goals be affected?” Consider the possibilities to discern the best course of action for long-term success.

Ask for help and push through for what you really want.

The good news is that when the going gets tough, you don't have to go it alone. Even high-achieving professional athletes seek help for every aspect of their lives, from nutrition to training. A coach can bring an outside perspective and years of experience to move you through the blind spots that hinder success. They provide a step-by-step plan to get you out of the dip. 

You should never talk to somebody else who’s in the dip.

Have you ever seen a lobster try to climb out of a bucket of fellow crustaceans? It’s a tragedy. They’re continuously pulled back down from freedom. The same goes for humans. Misery loves company. It would be wise to refrain from speaking with colleagues who are also in the dip. They’ll only feed into your hopelessness and render you immobile.

“Just because things get hard doesn’t mean it’s time to quit.” - Brooke Elder (6:29 - 6:33)

The bottom of a dip may be challenging, but there is hope. Don’t let the fear of making a wrong decision paralyze you from making decisions. This week, identify what your dip is and someone who can help you get out of it, like a coach or a call with our team. When you accept help, you’ll not only survive, you’ll also thrive.
