The Time To Connect Is Now!

When is the right time to connect with someone to share your MLM business and/or products? When is the right time to connect with the people who find you and the leads you generate through the internet? When’s the best time to call and introduce yourself and make a connection with people? There’s no time like the present! The time to connect with people is always right now!

Whether it’s a lead from your website or an individual you meet in town while at the post office, grocery store, your kids’ sports events, or your favorite restaurant—at some point, you’ve got to pick up the phone and connect with people if you’re going to be in business. Introduce yourself, share your story, and most importantly, listen to their story! As you listen to people share their story, find out how you can help them.

Even if some individuals already have a business they may be happy with, listen to why. Make and keep a connection with them anyway because you never know what will happen. Someday, they just might be looking for a new opportunity and will likely contact you if you took the time to connect with them and showed you cared by keeping in touch and connecting them with others who could help them. Ask them how you can help them in their business. Who would be a good client for them? Be on their side! Let them know you’ve got their back! Connect with them and they will connect with you!

What about just letting the “system” do it all for us? Automation is great, but it only takes the whole process so far to bring you people. Then, it’s up to you to take the connection a step further. Even with qualified people who actually may sign up right on your website before speaking with you, you’re going to have to connect by actually speaking with them to start building a relationship if you plan to build a solid foundation in your business. Wouldn’t you rather build your foundation on rock so it will last?

It’s so important as you form alliances with people that you connect them to others within your inner circle of business leaders as well. Because, the more people you connect together, the more solid your business relationships become. This will grow your MLM business!

Stop sitting around waiting and wondering when the right time would be to make a connection with someone. You can always come up with a reason why it’s not the “right” time or why “not” to connect with people. For example, there is a certain person that you’re too nervous to connect with because you feel they are more important than you.

Everyone loves to be connected with. Even the most important, well connected person you may ever meet will want to connect with you! Why? Because they will love connecting you with others they know, too! Just ask them for help or advice and you’ll see.

You may have butterflies in your stomach and feeling nervous—so what? That happens to everyone—even the most seasoned networkers!

There’s never a wrong time to make a connection with people. Being nervous is natural. Never let anything stop you from making a connection because making connections with people is priceless when you keep their interests at heart!

Think about it this way, every person you connect with, you have an opportunity to change their life in a very positive way! You have a chance to “give” that person encouragement, hope, friendship and even possibly a partnership. These are all possibilities as you connect with people.

Some say we find the best fruit way out on a limb and you’ve got to take a risk to get it! There’s a photo of a beautiful beach with a star fish on it on my office wall that says:

Reach for the Stars. They Are Closer Than You May Think!

So, if you’ve got butterflies fluttering in your stomach, jump in anyway and as Nike says “Just DO IT!” Go ahead and take the plunge! What’s the worst that can happen? By doing so you’ll realize you’ve now become an entrepreneur! Entrepreneurs are always making connections! It’s how we survive!

Stop paralyzing yourself and your MLM business by sitting like the dirt waiting for something to be put into it—pick up your phone or while you’re out and about, connect with someone! Even if it’s just by giving a stranger you see in the grocery store your smile! Send someone an uplifting card or email. Encourage someone today! Give them hope! They are waiting for you to connect with them and to connect you with someone special you may not meet otherwise!
