Who should I choose as my partners?

Unlike some businesses network marketing is a business that requires partnering with people to achieve success.  You will want to choose partners who have the following attributes and characteristics:
  • Coachable
  • Reliable
  • Great People Skills
  • Trustworthy - credible
  • Ambitious
Top professionals have coaches.  People who instruct them on the intricacies of their profession.  Your support team will work with you, coach you as you build your team.  As you learn you would do the same with your partners and this really works effectively with people who are coachable; who are easy to work with and take instruction well no matter their previous record of successes.    Which would you rather work with?  Someone who is open to instruction or a know it all who has no idea what they're doing?

You want business partners you can depend on; who mean it when they decide to partner with you.   With the right compensation plan you don't need hundreds of personal partners, just a few key people you can rely on to do what they say they're going to do when they say they're going to do it.

Network marketing is a people business.   Pick people who like working with people; who like helping people because they generally possess great people skills.   Pick people you want to work with, that you like and that you like spending time with.

These are often times people that you trust, that other people trust.  They have a high level of credibility with their sphere of influence.   When they tell people what they are doing, people listen and want to learn more.

And last but certainly not least, you'll want to partner with people who are ambitious.  "Go-Getters."  People who would pick up the ball and run with it.  People who like being successful.   

Partnerships in network marketing can last a lifetime.  Choose wisely.  Always choose the best.
