The mlm truth is that you must have leadership skills or develop them because it is crucial for us to know what to say and what to do with our prospects. If that is missing then we are a dead duck floating in the water, due to the fact that people can't stand wishy washy followers.
At one time I was under the perception that, I needed a degree to be successful. So as do most folks, I went to college. After four plus long years I had my bachelors degree in accounting and finance.
Again, like most people I found work in an accounting department. I had part of my desire. I had a fairly decent income, but no time freedom. I found Network Marketing - I tried to learn the skills to be a success at this new career. One fine day I found a book on line called Success In 10 Steps, and the keys to understanding personality traits. I learned that to mentor someone you have to know their strengths, weaknesses and what they like and dislike.
