If you would like to finally make it to the top level and be recognized as a leader… and achieve it even if you’ve been in the industry for years without too much success to show for your efforts… then this letter is for you.
Here’s the story…
My name is Stephane Page and even though I’m now considered a leader in my Network Marketing company, according to my friends, my teachers, and even the big “gurus” spewing their lies about what works in MLM . . .
I still remember it like it was yesterday.
I was seventeen years old, sitting in my guidance counselor’s office in Ste-Agathe, Quebec looking Mr. Monette right in his eyes and trying to hold back my anger when he looked up from my “aptitude” test and said . . .
“Stephane, your aptitude test shows that you could be a really good plumber.”
I swear, I wanted to scream.
See, for the last year I had read books on positive thinking and personal development that told me I could be anything I wanted in life.
And here I was sitting there in Mr. Monette’s crappy office telling me that a stupid test would dictate how I would live my life?!!
And at that moment, something in me SNAPPED. And I made a promise to myself that I would prove them wrong. I would go out, become wildly successful and then dedicate my life to helping people reveal their true potential and never let anyone tell them what they can or can’t do. PERIOD!
The next couple years were hard. Manye times I let my mind think Mr. Monette was right but I fought my way to believe in me.
I was 18 years old when I was introduced to network marketing for the very first time.
I was listening to my father explaining a strange concept to some family members. I sat there and listened while he was talking about a method of doing business called Multi-Level Marketing (MLM).
He drew a bunch of circles on a sheet of paper. He explained that if you recruit 5 who recruit 5 and so on… you’ll have an army of people who help people make money.
Well, I was literally blown away!
For the next several weeks, I was in paradise. The excitement and joy is hard to describe. I had discovered a way to achieve everything I ever wanted in life—by helping others! Here was a way that I could be successful by helping other people be successful. Incredible!
All the books I read on positive thinking and personal development aligned with this vision of helping others and creating success. This was going to be my life…
My ambitions were unstoppable. Some people call this “Ignorance on fire”.
For the next several years, I immersed myself into the industry, buying every book, tapes, seminars I could find. Each new program put me on a new path to “supposed” success. I used pre-approach packets, I did home meetings, hotel meetings, prospected at malls, left flyers on car windshields, created recruiting websites, sent voice mail broadcasts, I called leads until late after midnight for over a year. Worked crazy hours and crawled to bed every night . . .
At one point I did the math and realized I’d spent $10,069.85 on “info products,” softwares, seminars and ebooks . . .
It kills me even to think about it…
I perfectly remember that day.
Like any other day I came home from work, and right after the kids were in bed, I’d jump to the PC, I’d go filled with fresh hope, staying up till after midnight , endlessly promoting my business, the bags under my eyes and my credit card bill getting ever bigger!
After about 11 years struggling in MLM jumping in 3 different companies, I was getting tired. Even my wife was now doubting that I was ever going to succeed in Network Marketing. I was so desperate to make all those hours night after night to pay off, to have something to show for my efforts . I just wanted to be able to say to my wife “Hey sweety come and see how much we made last month!” To see the look of pride in her eyes, to hear her say ” See darling, I told you, you could do it”
I wanted to be proud of what I was doing, to have something to show for it .
And for the first time since we’d fallen in love in college I saw something horrible in her eyes . . .
Not the love and pride I was used to.
But disappointment. Contempt.
In that moment, something had snapped in her and she no longer believed I was the man she thought I was.
My measly commission checks were so embarrassing. I cringed every time a friend or family member asked me how much I was making from my “lucrative home based business”- truly sad.
It has to be said though that there were a few times that I started to listen to them, I very nearly gave up .
I can remember many sleepless nights after buying this new course – filled with fresh hope and enthusiasm I’d stay up most of the night reading this course, trying the same old marketing methods I’d been told would fill my pipeline with prospects and sales. I’d grab a few hours sleep (if I could) then off to work the next day, dog tired, but telling myself that it was going to be worth it – this time – a month, three months, years and guess what ……….
…………..NOT ONE SUCCESS !
The constant frustration of all those looooooong nights promoting, buying advertising, buying leads, calling people and watching my organization increase by 1 or 2 every 6 months!
(- Aaaaah I could scream . or cry) I always seemed to be doing what the heavy hitters were doing but never getting the results they were getting.
And to make matters worse there waiting for me on the kitchen table, was my credit card bill, and sat next to it, my normally gorgeous wife, giving me ‘that’ look - the look that would scare Satan himself! “Boy have I got some explaining to do”
I didn’t have money to burn (who does?) so every time I used my credit card I was filled with tremendous guilt. I used to offset this guilt by telling myself that this time it would be different though, I would make enough money this time to pay off the damn credit card, this time….
I remember that day, when the penny finally dropped!
I was searching the net for anything that would ‘Show me the way’. It wasn’t long before I realized that unless someone knew something I didn’t, it was going to cost me a small fortune to build my business….. my story was going on like this for years. Years of my life, my kids lives, my marriage. I was now very very desperate and near wits end – I have never had a breakdown, but I must have come pretty close to it.
I couldn’t stop searching for THE way, because I just couldn’t imagine that I was going to quit. I wanted the lifestyle. I wanted to build friendships, help people succeed. Go on exotic locations with like-minded people.
I wanted to leave a legacy, something I could even do with my kids.
I deserved more than what I was getting!
And I have to tell you. Probably the most motivating factor for me was to prove wrong all those peolpe who said I would fail. And to Mr. Monette. . . my old guidance counselor probably cackling at me from that same office telling me I’d never be anything no matter how hard I tried.
…….. and just when I was totally discouraged, something happened.
Friday afternoon, as I was driving home with my family. We could see the house in the distance and my little one, Maïlie, said “Can you believe that we were living in that house before?”. She faked that it was our past, that we were now living the life of our dreams. This smart little child had listened to everything I had told her during all those years about success, about creating the life you want in your mind first, about living your dreams.
And right there I decided . . .
What happened next could only be described as amazing . . . would save my marriage, save my family and give me the kind of life and happiness most people can’t even dream of. (A new life where ANYTHING is possible.)
The next couple weeks were hell. I kept wracking my brain trying to figure out how to fix things, but nothing would work.
I was at an event the first time I met him and after all these years I finally decided to give him a call.
He’s not a “guru” (making money selling BS advice to wannabes) but all the big names in MLM talked about him in hushed whispers, got quiet when he walked in the room and treated him like a king.
He likes to help others – in his spare time this guy even creates Non-profits (I kid you not and I didn’t believe it either)
I could give you his real name, but I prefer to tell you my nickname for him was “The Vet.”
He worked for five years building an organization and created a $150,000/month income and then retired from building to dedicate himself to help the industry as a whole… whatever he did when he was building, I had to know what he was doing.
So I picked-up the phone and called him. I was so nervous, he must have thought I was on some drugs or something.
I held my breath and told him what I’d been going through . . .the bills . . . the fights with Claudia . . . everything I’d been DESPERATELY trying to get out of debt and get my life on track . . .
I felt like I was at confession. Letting down the “success mask” that I always put on to all the big gurus and marketing people. And I couldn’t believe it when the Vet paused for a long moment that seemed like eternity and said . . .
“Stephane, you’re making this waaaaay more complicated than it needs to be.”
And then he stopped for a second and said:
I pulled together what I had and even borrowed on the last pennies I had on my card to join him. Not going to lie, there were moments that I considered not doing it but then I remembered my daughter’s eyes and her sincere belief and confidence in me. I couldn’t let her down. I had to prove her daddy was not going to be a failure.
And friend, am I Glad that I did…
I’ll never forget… the Vet explained to me that he learned the most valuable lessons while he was in the bomb squad.
The Navy walked him through baby steps through, until he could defuse the most sophisticated nuclear weapon systems in the world.
He followed a step-by-step list of the precise process of defusing a bomb
When he joined his MLM company, he, along with the help of his downline, created a check sheet–a step-by-step list of the daily activities that a network marketer needs to do to be successful.
The key to winning every day is to precisely track your results in every daily activity that you do, so that you can see where the breakdowns happen, confront those areas and master the skills necessary to be successful. If you track each activity, you can see in an instant where the problems lie.
I was sitting in my car on the side of the road to make sure I don’t lose connection and he proceeded to explain to me what he was planning to do because he was just starting a brand new team – I was scribbling notes on napkins, note cards, all over the place just trying to soak it all in. This was WHAT I had been searching for. Someone that would show me step-by-step how to make this work.
I don’t know about you but buying a program or a course and trying to apply it by yourself is one thing. But when you have the master walking you through the steps, failure is impossible.
Immediately after that call I got to work and I’ve been successful ever since!
I still remember when I cracked open my laptop and showed my wife all the money that was streaming into our bank account.
I remember the tears in her eyes. How she just melted against me and how incredible it felt to know I was going to be able to take care of my family the way I’d always wanted.
That I could finally stop thinking of myself as a “plumber guy.”
That I wasn’t a loser.
That I was going to win.
The Vet showed me how to become a recruiting master.
That’s how I learned to sponsor 8 out of 10 people I talked to.
I learned what it takes to get your new recruits recuiting others fast.
I created a dead simple no-tech lead generation technique to generate 10 leads per day for my team.
It took me months to figure it out. I tried many different ways but one day… I’m saying to myself; “This will work, this will work…” I press the button and …
All of a sudden, I just couldn’t believe my eyes! My email inbox started to receive leads for free!
Seriously, so many people were responding each hour, and I started receiving so many emails, that I had to stop my operations!
Yes, I had too many people to talk to! Can you believe that??? A few hours earlier, I was stuck buying leads and talking to people who received 15 calls before mine. Now THEY were calling me! I had to start training a couple people because I was not capable of keeping up with the flow of leads coming in! And then I started promoting again. Well, same thing again, two hours later I was getting leads again!
I was ecstatic! The joy you feel inside is indescribable. FINALLY !!!
The first days were so exciting! I was smiling all day long, I just couldn’t believe it was finally working! I’m telling you, you must live this, it is an awesome feeling to reach success after trying and trying for years! I don’t know what matters most at that moment, is it seeing the results of my efforts, or the pride of success? Whichever, it is something that not many people experience in their life!
Today, I help people put the pieces of the puzzle together and finally have a breakthrough moment in their MLM career.
