Persistence is what you need to succeed.

And you need to know that you can succeed. You can do it.

Several years ago, I was in need of a job. And not just any job.
I needed one that paid well, but had flexibility. I was working
also as an Actor and doing Commercials both Radio and TV as well
as training tapes. Something I still do, but which has slowed
down quite a bit in the last years. But I needed to be able to
not work on short notice to be able to go to auditions and

Anyway, I need a special kind of job. And what I found and what
I succeed in will surprise you.

I did Door-to-Door Sales.

Before I started this, I would have been the last person who
would have thought I had what it took to go Door to Door and
sell things. But not only did I do it, I made Money at it, and
believe it or not... I had Fun doing it. I was 5th in the whole
company for sales one year.

We sold a card, a piece of heavy paper which gave the barer
discounts on Oil Changes, Service Work, Tires and the like. Or
discounts on Pizza. I loved selling the Pizza cards. Talking
about something good to eat and saving people money was really

The people I met were great. You never really know how many
wonderful people there are in the world until you talk with
them. Of course some were not so nice, but 99% of them were
great and good people.

But when I started this, I needed something. I needed to be
persistent. I didn't start out as a top salesman. As with
anything, I needed to learn how to do the job. I was fortunate
in that I had great teachers, and we offered real savings to

I was motivated, I needed to make money and I needed to do it
fast and every week. So I listened and learned from those who
were doing it week after week. And I started to make money. Many
weeks I made over $1,000. That felt real good.

But not every week started out great. Sometimes we had a bad
contract, or a neighborhood that wasn't working out. But I kept
at it, I kept walking up to those doors, knocking and telling
people about what I offered. Every week, I made money, some
weeks were, $600 weeks, some were $1,200 weeks. But as long as I
was knocking on doors and talking to people, I knew I was going
to make sales. And I did.

Now, it was tough that first week on the job. Tough to walk up
to strange doors and go into my pitch, hoping I had all the
answers if the questions came. And they did, and I answered
them. All of them. Took time to get all the answers down so I
could do it smoothly, but I did it. I mastered the job, and I
made sales and money. A lot of money.

What has all this Door-to-Door stuff have to do with Network


You must have the need to do the job.
You must learn how to do the job.
You must learn your product and answer the questions.
You must keep talking to people.

Your need might be just earning a few extra dollars online a
month. Or it might be earning enough to quit your day job. Or it
might be a need to make a ton of money. What ever your need is,
you must want it bad enough to do the job, learn the job and
learn your product or service.

Notice I keep calling this a job? I bet you thought of this as a
way out of a job. But it is a JOB. You can call it running your
own online business, but it's still a JOB. And you have got to
treat it like one. You go to Work everyday at the same time and
put in your hours, right. The same needs to happen with this
Network JOB. You need to learn how to do it, and follow through
or you are never going to make a dime and you might as well play
the Lotto with all the money you spend joining this thing and
that thing.

I am trying to help you do the JOB. I am trying to teach you how
to do the JOB. Are you learning anything? Persistence pays off,
whether you are going Door-to-Door selling or placing ads online
or using Hit Exchanges. Or posting to SafelistsArticle Search, or buying ads
in E-zines.

Don't let me hear you say you can't do this. Don't let me hear
it. Because you can. All you need is the need to learn it and do

This is important. You need to have the need. You need to learn
the JOB. You need to be Persistent.
