The ONE MLM Skill that I Will Teach My Kids
Thanks for all the emails and concern for my son, Ethan. He’s recovering well.
It has only been three weeks since he broke his leg, but he already wants to get up and walk! Every day I have to make sure he just scoots around and not put pressure on his green cast.
I’ve been spending a lot of one-on-one time with Ethan since my wife is always busy with our younger child, Brendan.
Ethan and I are closer than ever, and I cherish every moment that I’m with him. I can’t believe he will be three years old in a few weeks, and before I know it, he will be 18 and out of the house.
As a parent you always want to do what is best for your kids, set them up for a good future. My parents went out of their way to make sure that my brother and I got a good university education.
I appreciate everything that my parents did for me, but times have changed. believe getting a degree from an university is not as important as it used to be.
If there was one skill that could guarantee my sons will always be able to make a living, what would it be?
It definitely would not be what they can learn in school!
For most of us, what we learned in school has made us neither rich nor given us financial security for our families.
The 2014 graduating class is also the most indebted class ever with an average of $33,000 in student loan debt.
How long will it take for that be paid off?!
My university degree gave me a job, but it didn’t give me the skills or wisdom to live the life I wanted.
Fortunately, there is something I can pass to my kids that will help secure their financial future. It’s one of many skills that I’ve learned from my MLM business.
I didn’t have this skill before I joined my MLM. That is why I was struggling financially even though I had a good and fun job.
MLM forced me to learn this skill and it has totally changed my life. It is something that I will pass on to my kids.
The One Skill that Always Makes You Money
I’ve learned many valuable skills and success habits throughout my MLM journey.
Skills such as leadership, public speaking, coaching, etc. are all important, but if you were to single out just ONE skill, then this would be it.
The MOST important skill that I’ve learned in MLM is the ability to sell.
Learning to sell is the ONE skill that I will force my kids to learn at a young age.
You may ask why that is the case.
When you know how to sell, you can always make a living.
It doesn’t matter what happens to the economy, if you can sell, you can find customers and survive.
It doesn’t matter if technology changes the product, if you can sell, you will find another product that will make you money.
My friend Art has sold all types of things. He has sold everything from jewelry and fashion accessories to supplements and weight loss products.
No matter how bad the economy gets, he always makes a good living.
Products change, trends change, and economies change, but as long as I have known Art, he has been able to make a good living for his family. That’s because he can SELL!
What to Sell
My kids can sell whatever they want.
They won’t get an allowance. The only money they will get will be from things they sell.
If they want new toys, they will learn to be creative and find things to sell.
My kids will soon learn that we are always selling. In fact, we sell every day when we communicate with others. We just don’t realize it because it is natural to us. It’s what I call No Hype Selling.
When we convince someone to eat at the restaurant where we want to eat, we just sold them to eat what we want.
There are two ways to sell. There is the natural way in how we communicate, and there is the annoying way like the used car salesman that just talks and talks and talks.
My kids will learn how to do No Hype Selling, and they won’t be pushy and annoying.
What Selling Will Teach My Kids
I will teach my kids how to sell themselves.
They will learn how to differentiate themselves from the crowd.
Their exposure to selling at a young age will teach them how to deal with rejection.
Selling will show them what you have to do when you don’t get the results you want.
Selling will teach them what life is about.
Do you agree or disagree?
What is one skill that you think would help your future generation the most?
