Seth Godin – The death of the industrial age and a shift to Entrepreneurialism

31 Jan

On today’s show I don’t have a tip for you. Instead let’s watch one of the authorities on business and marketing,  Seth Godin.

In this interview Seth Godin talks about the death of the industrial age and a shift that is currently going on.  A shift towards more independent aka. entrepreneurial thinking.

This is so important I’ve already watched it twice today and will probably watch it twice more!

“The industrial age is going away and this new thing is taking place…”

“What do you think we should do?”

“Pick yourself. If you want to write, write.  If you want to sing, sign. If you want to start a movement start a movement.”

Seth calls it a shift.  We need to look at ways to do it ourselves (self employment, anyone?) rather than go work for the factory for 40 years because those factory jobs don’t exist any more.

This reminds me of another article I read in the NY Times last week. Average is over.

Do you see the shift?

Are you a part of the tribe making their own future or a part of the group that is still holding on to the industrial age idea of working for someone else for 40 years, praying you still have a job?

Busting the Myth of the Pre-Launch MLM company

17 Jan

In this episode we tackle the myth that you need to join a pre-launch MLM company.

Listen to the show below to find out why joining a pre-launch company may not be everything you hoped and dreamed of.

In network marketing there is a common misconception that only the people at the beginning make money.

What most people don’t realize is that the people involved in pre-launch companies have a lot of challenges to overcome. They have to face challenges that people who get involved with a later stage company don’t have.  I know I have been there. I was #899 to join my company. I was there in the very early pre-launch days and have been through it all!

Here are some factors in joining a startup or pre-launch:

  • Most new companies fail in the first 5 years
  • New companies may have to change products
  • New companies may have flaws in their compensation plan that require the comp plan to be changed
  • Lack of sophisticated marketing tools
  • Lack of mature training systems
  • Limited international availability (in some cases maybe even limited availability country wide)
  • Later stage growth is usually faster and people can make money faster because all the systems, training, and marketing tools are in place

Most importantly, if you plan to join a pre-launch company you should be an experienced network marketer.  A novice should not join a pre-launch MLM company as they may not be able to handle the unique challenges a startup provides.
