Yes, you read that right.
It’s fun when cool things happen by accident.
I was responding to a direct message (DM) on Instagram. Usual stuff. “What exactly do you do?”
Note: most people who ask that question are positioning themselves so they will answer that question with some kind of pitch.
It’s OK. The nature of the game.
So I told the guy the truth, which is that I’m in the home business industry and we have a number of income streams.
He then told me he does network marketing and is a Forex trader.
So far, so good.
But then he asked me what I meant by number of “income streams.”
Newbie in the business.
And that’s awesome! Everyone starts as a newbie.
I’ll spare you all the details, but in writing him back, my voice recorder didn’t hear “multiple streams of income.”
It heard “multiple DREAMS of income.”
How perfect is that?
At some point, everyone who enters the home business industry has a vision of multi-millions dancing in their head.
They imagine waking up to lots of digits on the good side of the decimal point in their Paypal and Stripe accounts.
Or they get that legendary “mailbox money.”
And of course the toys to go with it.
Truth is, there are very few who achieve that level of success simply from their one network marketing or affiliate company…or selling their own product or service.
Yes, it happens sometimes. Diane and I are multi six figure a year earners from one company.
But it’s very much the exception, not the rule.
Most of the people who break through to full time incomes learn the skills of promoting multiple products and services.
More so, they become magnetic and attractive in their own right.
So that when they decide to promote something, a crew of eager people line up with them.
That’s based on reputation.
And reputation is based on integrity.
But it’s also based on being someone who’s fun to be around.
We can go into this all day.
But let’s just boil it down to four basic skills that can turn your multiple dreams into multiple streams.
1. Lose your obsession with your primary network marketing or affiliate program.
Yes, honor and respect it. Even love it! But if you emotionally invest too strongly in it, you’ll never escape its gravitational pull.
2. Get really good and really confident at what you do.
People are looking for someone they trust.
If you know what you’re talking about in two or three different areas, and you’re not shy about telling people about it, you’ll attract people. Lots of them.
3. Get organized.
There’s a lot of work involved in multiple streams of income. You can do it in a short period of time, so your job or family doesn’t have to suffer.
But you have to work really smart.
4. Keep learning.
The home business industry changes more than most people think (even though its core principles will always be the same).
Make a commitment to being in front of the trends and knowing about stuff that people want…and are willing to pay for.
