Step outside your box!

No two people are alike in the MLM business.  This is what makes the profession accessible to a multitude of different people.  It doesn’t matter what previous qualifications or experience you have.  You are given the same opportunity indiscriminately.

However, there are some shared personality traits that are common to those who have started and operated successfully in MLM already.

One of the most common personalities inherent among MLM business people is their entrepreneurial spirit.

What are some of these traits that make up an MLM entrepreneur?


Self-starters are the type of people who do not just sit around thinking about something over and over again. Yet no action is taken to get things done. They decide on what needs to be done and simply do it.

Take my example. I wanted my own branded website, but income limited me from hiring a web design company to make my site. As a self-starter, got busy and went to work.  I gathered all the information and training  to bring my website into reality.  What I got was a website that I developed myself.

One vital trait of a self-starter it to know your strengths and weaknesses and be able to accept them.


The self-motivated MLM individual has motivation and determination beyond their present circumstances.  As in they can see their future and are willing to invest themselves to get there.  Because each person is a unique being, each’s motivations are unique.

For example, your motivation for starting your MLM business could be to earn $500 or $1,000 per month to pay off some debts.  Or it could be that you want to home school your kids, and that requires earning an income working from home.

Your level of motivation to a large measure will be dependent up on your purpose and level of commitment. Your success is directly correlated to how big your dreams are.


The creative individual has a lot of great ideas. If you anything like me, you are probably able to come up with many great ideas and are thrilled when you can provide solutions. Many of my ideas are the results of being an avid learner.  I am constantly listening and observing what other successful MLM’rs are doing.

The commonality is they focus on finding solutions, rather than dwelling on the challenges.

For example, maybe you have a limited funds for advertising, you could get to work finding all the available free advertising avenues instead to thinking over and over how limited your budget is.

Your creativity and thinking outside the box will result in expanding your MLM advertising program beyond what you thought was the only option. You would also have the knowledge from research. Thus, resolving the original problem and has also probably creating an additional source of income.


The self-disciplined individual is one who does not need someone standing over. Or having someone tells them what, how and when to do.  This is me to a tee!  I suppose this may stem from my childhood and being constantly  told what to do and completely resenting it.  This is largely why I MAKE A LOUSY EMPLOYEE.  I do not need anyone telling me what to do to get something done. I am highly capable of determine what needs to be done, then taking action to do it.  I suspect you have this in you too.

An MLM business may fail, many do first time around. But the self-disciplined individual does not accept that they are a failure. They simply learn from the mistakes and use them as a tool to attain success.

As a ‘momtrepreneur’ in MLM you must be able to adapt. You will find yourself playing different roles such as: marketer, promoter, public relations, motivator, sponsor, Webmaster…and so forth. Do not be afraid of taking a chance.  Be open and flexible to them.  Stepping outside of your box may just be the best decision you make.

Successful businesses are not built over night but over time. As a MLM entrepreneur you must be willing to go the extra mile, put forth the time and effort needed to build your organization.

I would like to connect with you and hear what your MLM experiences are.  Please leave your comments.
