What You Should Be Focusing On If You’re Making Less Than $1000 per Month
In this week’s podcast episode we’re going to talk about what you should be focusing on if you’re making less than $1000 per month. Every week, both inside our free MLM Freedom Community and inside our Freedom University coaching program I have people say to me,
“I’m brand new! I feel overwhelmed and am just not sure what I should be focusing on!”
“I’ve been around a while, but haven’t had any results yet. I’m not sure what I should be doing to finally start making money!”
No worries, in this podcast episode I’m going to break it all down for you step-by-step, so you can have a comprehensive blueprint of exactly what you should be doing (and what you should NOT be doing!) if you’re wanting to break past that $1000/month threshold once and for all!
In each episode of the Freedom Factor I like to provide you with a powerful free resource to help you get the most out of what we cover together. I share a TON of valuable info in this week’s episode, and I want to make sure you don’t miss a thing. That’s why I decided to put the full podcast notes together for you in a comprehensive Dynamic Business Growth Blueprint you can print out and use daily as you grow your business!
In the Dynamic Business Growth Blueprint I break down everything I cover in the podcast, along with additional resources to help you with each step. You can use this blueprint as an action guide while you build your business on your way to that $1000/month level and beyond! Click Here to download the free blueprint now.
Where Most People Get Stuck
If you are brand new in your business — meaning if you have no customers or team members yet — the places you’re most likely to get stuck in are “planning mode”, “research mode” and “training mode”. Believe me, I get it! These are easy places to stay… they’re COMFORTABLE… but here’s the thing: your business will never grow from here!
Often we stay stuck in those places because we are fearful and we doubt ourselves. We say we “aren’t ready” to get into action yet. We’re “still learning”. But in network marketing we get to EARN while we learn… and in fact, the only way to really learn how to grow this business is by doing.
I talk about this more in the podcast episode, so be sure to listen to it. But to summarize: you are going to be uncomfortable… and you are going to be bad at this business. It doesn’t matter how long you plan, research and train… when you finally get into action you’re going to mess up! That’s okay! It means you’re learning. It means you’re growing! Learn to embrace the discomfort and act anyway!
You are ready! You CAN do this! So let’s go!
The other place people get stuck is in “management” or “motivating” mode — this happens most often with people who are just starting to build a team and grow a customer base. You get a few business partners with you and all personal activity goes out the window — instead, you spend your time focusing on the management and motivation of those on your team… with little or no success.
In the podcast episode I share what you should be doing instead, what to expect from and the RIGHT way to work with your new and growing team!
What You Should Be Focusing On | Mindset + Skillset
Here’s the thing: too many people fail in network marketing before they even get started!
Why? Because they allow fear and a lack of belief to leave them paralyzed. And if they DO happen to take some kind of action, they’re out at the first sign of resistance.
I don’t want this to be you.
That’s why it’s imperative that you spend time every day in personal and professional development.
Personal development is going to help you develop the belief systems and thought processes of a top earner. It’s going to arm your mind with what is necessary to overcome adversity, push through distractions and stay in action regardless of what’s going on in and around your business.
Professional development is going to help you develop the skill sets of a top earner. You’re going to learn the right way to network, invite, follow up and enroll new people, along with developing the leadership skills you need to step in and lead a 6- and 7-figure organization.
So just how much time do you need to spend in personal and professional development each week? I give you all the specifics in the podcast and in my free Dynamic Business Growth Blueprint. There’s a fine line here between too little, and too much… and if you’re earning less than $1000 a month you want to be sure you’re in the sweet spot that promotes growth without stunting it.
Also in the freebie I share the link to my own personal and professional development resource library, where you can check out my personal favorite resources that have had the greatest impact on my life and business.
What You Should Be Focusing On | Personal Prospecting
Personal Prospecting is the lifeblood of your network marketing business. If you aren’t consistently networking, inviting, following up and enrolling people into your business, you aren’t making money. And you will never reach the $1000 a month level, much less go beyond it.
There are very specific activities that need to happen in your personal prospecting each week. Most people simply aren’t taking enough of the right actions to get the results they want.
You definitely want to listen to the podcast episode where I break down all the specifics about what activities you need to engage in on a weekly basis, as well as give you a baseline for the numbers you need to hit each week if you want to get results.
In the Dynamic Business Growth Blueprint I also share my best FREE personal prospecting resources to help you learn how to execute those activities like a professional and get results. Click Here to Download the Freebie Now.
What You Should Be Focusing On | Customer Service
Treat your customers like royalty and they will reward you with loyalty. It’s a lot easier to take care of the customers you have than it is to find new customers. And while yes, you absolutely do need to be adding NEW customers to your bottom line each and every month, your business will grow exponentially faster if you learn how to take care of the customers who’ve already ordered from you and ensure they continue to order again and again.
Listen to the podcast episode to hear my top tips on:
- How to take care of customers efficiently so you provide excellent customer service while still having time to bring in new customers each week.
- My personal follow-up practices to ensure you keep your products in front of your customer’s eyeballs to encourage reorders.
In the Dynamic Business Growth Blueprint I also share the link to a free webinar my business partner and I did to help you create a perfect follow-up funnel and my favorite contact manager system to ensure you never let a customer fall through the cracks ever again.

What You Should Be Focusing On | Fast Start Your New Team Members
When you do start enrolling new team members you can avoid getting into management mode by having a systematic set of strategies you use to help your new person get off to a fast start. You want your brand new team member to get a check ASAP — this keeps them in the game for the long haul, and creates exponential growth and duplication in your team.
In the podcast episode I share some great tips on this topic such as:
- The Importance of Launching Your New Team Member Within 30 Days
- How to help them make their list and strategize on who and how they will contact the people they wrote down
- The importance of getting your new team members on board with a simple, efficient daily routine that creates duplication
- How to leverage the tools your upline has available to give you more time for coaching and personal prospecting.
