Not making any money? Here’s why.


 Posted about 1 year ago, edited about 1 year ago More by Fabrizio P.

First of all you need to stop blaming everything but yourself, and understand that if after months or years in SFI, you're only making a little money or no money at all, well, you're the only one responsible of your failure. I underline this: no one else except yourself is responsible for your little income. The good news is that you are also the only one responsible for your success, which depends exclusively on your attitude. The following is a typical statement of the average semi-active affiliate with what I'd call a loser attitude, when he talks about his supposedly “inactive" PSAs: "not one has responded to my 'welcome message'… It's just a waste of money.” So, in a few words, trying to read the mind of this “sponsor”, his idea of SFI business is that you have to get some PSAs, send them a welcome message, sit back and expect their reply. That’s all. And you should even be entitled to earn commissions for this? The reality is that when you think like that, you’re not actually treating your business seriously. You have no plans, no strategy, no goals, you're acting like an amateur. To build a great business, first of all you need to change attitude and start thinking like a professional to become one. Otherwise you’ll keep earning peanuts or less. Bear in mind that SFI gives you the best vehicle possible, but it’s totally useless if you don’t learn how to drive it professionally and then you don’t keep driving it, following your roadmap, until your chosen destination. So, start by asking yourself these few essential questions: [list] "Do I have the necessary skills to approach and communicate with my PSAs effectively? [/list][list] "Do I have a precise roadmap to follow in order to achieve my monthly income goals?" [/list] And…most of all:[list] "Do I really have a precise monthly [b]income[/b] goal to achieve?" :wink: [/list] If you answered “no” to even only one of these questions…you’re probably headed to the nothingness.. And remember that 99.9% of people who signed up at SFI and are currently in your team, they all did it because they are interested in making money. That’s the only thing you know for sure about them. So, if you don’t feel comfortable in giving them precise monthly income goals to achieve, together with a step-by-step strategy to follow and duplicate, don’t be surprised if they lose all their interest in this business. I apologise if I've been too direct in explaining my points of view, but I'm convinced that a coach has to say the things that people need to hear, instead of the things that people would like to hear. Have fun!

I think we all need from time to time so sincere and direct posting to shake us well :blush: This is certainly must read thread and with your permission I will pass the link to my downline. I just needed this one today. ("Crudo, stretto e diretto") - meaning raw, direct and straight. Thank you for this one - let me reread it again :blush:

[quote=949689]Can you give us examples of your road map and strategy you use for yourself, and that you teach your downline.[/quote] Sure Robert I could, but I'm not sure I can post links to my personal blog in the forum. And anyway the important thing to understand is the concept. Then as a team coach, you can duplicate your upline's roadmap if they have one. If they don't, you can create yours, based on the Company's guidelines. That's what I did with my "3-step plan revisited" videos.

Fabrizio, point well taken. And your absolutely right about being direct. Lots of folk are afraid of the truth and will always pretend or shy away from it. I agree totally, ' a coach has to say the things that people need to hear, instead of the things that people would like to hear'. In other words tell it like it is. Thanks for sharing Sir. And i really hope other affiliates who are here without a 'road map' will take heed of your excellent post. Have a blessed saturday all!!!
