5 People, 3 Months, $210,000 in Cash Bonuses. These Networking Ninjas Explain How They Did It…

photo1-8I’d like to start off this post by asking a question.  The majority of americans, whether active in network marketing or not, started their professional lives working a traditional job for a traditional company.

Throughout the course of working said 9 to 5 J.O.B. have you or anyone you have ever worked with had the opportunity to earn a ten, twenty five, fifty, or seventy five THOUSAND dollar bonus?  No?  Well, you’re in the majority.  It’s a different story on our side of the fence.

The fact is that in network marketing you get paid in direct proportion to what you put into your business, and many companies offer some pretty substantial incentives, whether in the form of vacations, cars, or our personal favorite, cold hard cash!  We (Sarah & Josh) are blessed with an amazing team who enabled us to earn $90,000 in bonuses in just 3 short months.  The best part is that in doing this, these amazing leaders earned some substantial cash bonuses of their own.

Becoming a leader in your network marketing company is so much more than just selling a product or a service, and these leaders have made it their mission to learn what it takes to excel in the industry.  And with combined bonus* earnings of $210,000 in just over three months this year, they’re seriously walking the walk.

Each of these individuals comes from a different background.  They’ve all had their own struggles and their own triumphs.  Check out what they have to say about finding success and freedom (and earning a TON of $$) in network marketing.  You might learn a thing or two.

Amber CampbellMeet Amber.

Total Bonus earnings: $50,000.

Hey there! My name is Amber Campbell. I am an Army wife, mom of 3, personal trainer and fitness fanatic. I started my network marketing business on March 31st of 2013 in hopes of making just enough to pay for my monthly car payment and groceries. I was on the verge of joining the army, which would have made us a dual military family. At the same time, I was praying for a better opportutnity; one that I could work at home, and not miss out on my kids. God delivered, and put this opportunity in front of my face, thanks to my best friend! I jumped right in, and just went for it!

Sarah & Josh: What have you found to be the most important key to building a successful network marketing business?

Amber: I did not know a lot about business or marketing, so I copied the pros, and did the best I could. I guess you could say that I faked it till I made it! The most important key that I have found to building a successful network marketing business would have to be: Work your business everyday. Do something for your business, no matter how big or small, every day. Obviously there are going to be days and occassions that you take “off” BUT, if you keep the mindset that you are going to do something everyday for your business, you create a habit, and that habit turns into your lifestyle. I can’t sit still. There are dreams to be met, goals to be reached, people to be helped, etc..!! That is what helped me to become successful with my network marketing business.

Sarah & Josh: What was the biggest obstacle that you encountered while building your business, and how did you overcome it?

Amber: If you are a network marketer, you know its not always butterflies and rainbows. Just like anything else, there are bumps in the road and mountains to climb. I would have to say the biggest obstacle that I encountered was dealing with unmotivated people who are full of excuses. Being a person that has always been goal oriented, was very hard for me to deal with people that are just simply not self motivated. I dealt with this issue by picking my battles. Some people just need some encouragment while others will just flat out will never come around. You have to run with your runners, walk with your walkers, wave at the quitters and wish them the best. Sounds harsh, but lets be honest, you cant make people want it. They have to want it. It may not be their time. I had to learn that after many months of frustration with some people.

Sarah & Josh: Where do you see yourself in five years that you couldn’t have pictured before you became a network marketer?

Amber: My new 5 year goal, one that I could have never imagined before network marketing, is to be debt free, have the money to put down on building our dream home (if not already have it built), give to a certain foundation that is dear to me, help friends and family, be able to travel often, and just simply enjoy life with financial freedom. I want to be an inspiration to others that are in between a rock and hard place financially and spiritually.

In closing, this has been one of the best decisions of my life. I know that it is God that placed it before me, and God that is pouring His favor on me. I am so thankful to do something that I love, make great money, and be home to my children! God is Good, ALWAYS!

april-bennettMeet April.

Total Bonus earnings: $25,000.

Sarah & Josh: What have you found to be the most important key to building a successful network marketing business?

April: Talking to people and being vulnerable. I feel like if you can get over yourself and your fears and put yourself out there, people are a lot more likely to want to help you build your business. If you are real with them, you will have a bigger response.

Sarah & Josh: What was the biggest obstacle that you encountered while building your business, and how did you overcome it?

April: My biggest obstacle is finding people who believe in themselves, believe that their dreams are within reach and that they are worth it or that their family is worth it. This is an ongoing battle. I learn new things everyday and I am constantly trying to build people up so that they hopefully will see in themselves what I see in them.

Sarah & Josh: Where do you see yourself in five years that you couldn’t have pictured before you became a network marketer?

April: Oh my goodness….I always struggle with this question. This is one they always ask you in j.o.b. interviews and I was never sure how to answer. I hope to be debt free in 5 years. I hope to have started a family. I hope to have bought a house and that we are living comfortably. :)

tiffany-robertsMeet Tiffany.

Total bonus earnings: $10,000.

Sarah & Josh: What have you found to be the most important key to building a successful network marketing business?

Tiffany: I have found that that most important key to building a successful network marketing business is having a positive attitude. People are always watching me and it’s extremely important to remember that people appreciate that “feel good” read on facebook as opposed to being negative and airing out your “dirty laundry”. It is also important to build relationships in several different groups. That way, you will have a much bigger market.

Sarah & Josh: What was the biggest obstacle that you encountered while building your business, and how did you overcome it?

Tiffany: My biggest obstacle has always been, well ME! We all have fears, and my fear has always been public speaking and caring what people may think of me. Of course, I still care about what people think of me, but I am MUCH better at public speaking. Not perfect, but I have come a long way in the last 8 months. I am responsible for my own success and only I will stand in my way. I have learned to “get over myself”, as our Chief Networking Officer always says. I have learned to be more confident and most importantly, I learned in the very beginning to have faith. My faith in this company took me from a job of 8 years! I worked 50 hours a week at a job to make ends meet. Don’t get me wrong, I was extremely grateful for this job! It has provided my family with a wonderful life. It has taken us out of foreclosure not once, but TWICE! Once I started this business I was ably to quit my job after only 11 weeks!

Sarah & Josh: Where do you see yourself in five years that you couldn’t have pictured before you became a network marketer?

Tiffany: I didn’t know when and I didn’t know how but I KNEW that this network marketing company was going to be the vehicle to help me live a life beyond my wildest dreams. This is the faith that has carried me this entire way. I can see my future with this company, and it is BRIGHT! I can see myself owning my dream home paid for in cash. I can see my husband retiring from his job as a mechanic at a steel mill. I want to make a difference in this world, and I am not stopping there. My dreams are MUCH bigger than they have ever been, My children and husband are dreaming WITH me! I plan on reaching the top of the compensation plan and leading teams all over the world!

jennifer-zehMeet Jennifer.

Total bonus earnings: $25,000.

Hello! My name is Jennifer Zeh!! I tried my company’s flagship product almost a year and a half ago to prove it couldn’t work. Well, my plan backfired because it actually did. I researched more into their products and the business and fell in love with it all. I’m a wife, mom of three little ones (2, 3, and 7 years old), and a RN. Needless to say, I’m very busy, but made time for my business which in turn created time for me to spend with my family.

I’ve been with my company since February 2013, actually signing on my birthday as my gift from my husband. On my one year anniversary, I earned a $10,000 bonus by working to achieve leadership rank. Three months later, I worked for and earned an additional $15,000 bonus. I still find it crazy to think that I was able to accomplish in bonuses alone in one year what some make in a year.

Sarah & Josh: What have you found to be the most important key to building a successful network marketing business?

Jennifer: I’ve found that losing all excuses was the most important key to success. I used to say that I was “too busy”, “didn’t have enough of a warm market”, or “could never sell anything”. Those excuses were infiltrating my mind daily and finally lost them. I also credit finding support with others in this business was hugely beneficial. I found those positive, uplifting people and made connections with them. They keep me going and think it’s especially helpful if you don’t have much in terms of support from your spouse or family. There are so many that want to see everyone be successful that they’re willing to offer so much support and love to see it happen for you….you just have to be willing to take it.

Sarah & Josh: What was the biggest obstacle that you encountered while building your business, and how did you overcome it?

Jennifer: My biggest obstacle standing in my way was ME. All of those excuses I wrote about were getting in my own way. That all changed when I heard some key words from my amazing upline…”get over yourself” and “if not you, then who”. These words had a profound effect of me and changed everything. I’m not going to stand back and watch others do what I know I can do.

Sarah & Josh: Where do you see yourself in five years that you couldn’t have pictured before you became a network marketer?

Jennifer: In five years, I see amazing things. I see being able to retire my husband so he can do what he’s passionate about. I see a life filled with time and memories being made with my children since I no longer have to trade my time away from them for money. I see my children dreaming big! They have seen my set goals and go to work for those goals. Those are huge lessons for children to learn and seeing their mother go out there and do it is having an amazing effect on them. I also see myself being able to impact the lives of others outside my family and team. Those people in our world that feel forgotten. I’ve always wanted to be able to do more, but never had the funds or vehicle to do so, until now.

stephanie-phlaumeMeet Stephanie.

Total bonus earnings: $10,000.

I’m Stephanie Pflaume, a Military-Spouse and mother of two boys. I have been mostly a stay-at-home mom but have also done jobs like substitute teach, tutor, a Teacher’s Aid, worked Retail and much more. In March I earned a $10,000 bonus while working multilevel marketing after only being with the company for 10 months.

Sarah & Josh: What have you found to be the most important key to building a successful network marketing business?

Stephanie: The most important key in building a successful network marketing business is to believe in your product. If you believe in it it’s not as if you are selling, it is more like sharing something you love. It is especially helpful if it’s a product that helps others since that is one of my passions.

Sarah & Josh: What was the biggest obstacle that you encountered while building your business, and how did you overcome it?

Stephanie: One of the biggest obstacles that I have encountered while building my business is when others don’t see the big picture lie I do. I have to realize that anyone can do this, but it’s not for everyone and that I will always be on the search for others like myself to dream big together.

Sarah & Josh: Where do you see yourself in five years that you couldn’t have pictured before you became a network marketer?

Stephanie: In 5 years I see myself among all the leaders that I aspire to be like, I will be sitting with them in VIP. I will be helping others come with me. I know that 5 years seems like a long time, but it really isn’t and in that time I can grow my business like crazy. If I have come this far in just one year I really can’t imagine how the growth will be after 5 years, I just know it will be big and worth all my time and efforts now.

I know that for our family multi level marketing has already changed our lives, and we will be in places I never imagined in the near future. We will be able to take real family vacations and even a real honeymoon for my husband and I, get out of debt, and do everything on my dream board. Already I am teaching my children how to dream bigger, believe in themselves and work towards goals! That is huge for a parent to see that just by doing this work I am teaching important values.

*Bonus earnings: earnings paid for superior leadership and performance.  These earnings are in addition to regular residual income earnings.
