Myths Of Leadership- The Top 5 Misconceptions Most People Embrace

Today I wanted to write a post about the top 5 myths of leadership. Oftentimes people consider a leader, an individual who holds a high ranking in a company, someone who has received a promotion or someone who is in front of a movement.

What you are about to learn in these 5 myths of leadership, is that leadership is far more than ranking and knowledge. In fact, most people don’t truly understand what leadership is really all about. myths of leadership

The most important thing to understand before launching into the 5 myths of leadership is that leadership cannot be awarded, appointed or even a assigned to a person. True leadership comes from influence and ability, it can never be handed over.

Myths Of Leadership #1 – The Management Myth.

One of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to understanding leadership is the difference between leading and managing. A lot of books that claim to be about leadership are actually books teaching people how to manage other people.

Leadership and managment are completely different; management is the process of keeping people in-line and constantly producing. Leadership is the art of influcing people to voluntarly follow you, use your ideas, join you and work hand in hand with you.

Myths Of Leadership #2 – The Entrepreneur Myth

All entrepreneurs are not automatically great leaders! This is actually one of the biggest misconceptions that I see all of the time. Most people assume that if you are an entrepreneur, you are automatically an influential leader and human being.

Entrepreneurs are skilled at seeing opportunities and taking advantage of them but not all entrepreneurs will have the people skills required to be a terrific leader. An entrepreneur on their own is one thing…but an entrepreneur with leadership skills will be destined for success.

Myths Of Leadership # 3 – The Knowledge Myth

Knowledge can absolutely drive success but it is not a core distinction of what makes a leader a leader. Go to any college university; Harvard, Yale, Oxford, UCLA…all of the professors are incredibly educated in their field but how many of them are truly influential LEADERS? Not many…

Myths Of Leadership #4 – The Pioneer Myth

Another great misconception of leadership is the idea that all people that are first and in the front of the crowd are leaders. Are all of the people that are in front of the crowd leaders? No, not at all! A pioneer might be a great visionary but may not be able to lead people to follow them.

Myths Of Leadership # 5 – The Position Myth

This is truly the greatest misunderstanding of what leadership is. Think about it, if you are a top CEO, a president of a company or a manager, are you really a great leader? Some people might naturally be great leaders at these positions and that is how they earned them but NO, just being at a top position does not all of a sudden make you a leader.

Ampegy Review- A Review From Someone Who DIDN'T Join...

Ampegy Review -

Network marketers… I wanted to write this Ampegy Review because believe it or not, about 2 weeks ago, I was ABOUT tojoin Ampegy (literally credit card in hand, ready to join). I want to say this upfront, this review is NOT written to bash or condemn any company or Ampegy itself, in-fact, Ampegy in an extremely ligament company and one of the best I have seen in a while.

What I want to provide you with here however, is my diligent (and very extensive) research on the company, other companies in the deregulated energy business, a few examinations on the compensation plan and a first hand, honest evaluation of the opportunity as a whole.

I will close this Ampegy Review with a final verdict; “Is Ampegy the “right” company to be with in the deregulation of electricity”? “Does Ampegy have the most lucritive compensation plan”? And finally…”Will Ampegy provide you and your family the most money and residual income possible, for the work that you do”?

Ampegy Review, The Pros:

ampegy

Let’s start off by looking at the pros…

Energy deregulation is the right industry! Think about it…it is the most secure, most stable and reliable income and residual that you can build in network marketing because the residuals you build, are not based off of distributors  ”staying in” and paying their monthly auto-ships. This is extremely important to realize.

Therefore, the retention rate is very high for your customers and residuals, especially if these customers are built in your relationship (warm) market…

“When I began to look at the energy business, I knew for a fact that it was the right industry, the right product and the right service to market but I wanted to make sure that I was with the right company. I literally spent months researching all of the major players and kept comparing and contrasting different companies, marketing plans and opportunities until I finally found the one that was absolutely perfect and made the most sense.”

As I dwindled my search down and compared different plans, I was left with an option between Ampegy and one other company. Here are the top 4 things that grabbed my attention about the Ampegy opportunity and why I needed to make a decision between the two companies…

1.) Ampegy just launched back in February 2011 and is still in pre-launch stage. This fact right here was one of the main reasons why I was actually even considering the company (I am an experienced networker with very large downlines) . We all know the truth…”The people who are there in the beginning usually make the most money!”

When I was contacted about Ampegy in April, 2011, there was a leadership promotion going on…If you recruited 8 distributors by June 20th, 2011, you were actually grandfathered into the 2nd highest promotion level in the company. Pretty enticing right! Here’s the bad news though…for all of you reading this Ampegy Review after June 20th, 2011…have fun getting the promotion the hard way!

While you’re slaving away and working hard the honest way, the handful of founding Area Reps that got grandfathered in, will be getting extremely, extremely rich but the sad thing is…it will be very hard for 99% of the rest of the people to earn anywhere near the same amount of money, coming in after June 20th..

2.) Ok, here is the second thing that caught my eye about Ampegy, out of all the $399 , paid opportunities, Ampegy has the best fast-start bonuses hands down. Whenever someone joins your group for $400 dollars and gets their first 3 customers in 30 days, you can earn anywhere from $110 to even $280 just for helping them hitting their fast start goal (this is obviously paid out only once and is upfront money) .

3.) Ampegy is in a lot of markets. In-Fact, Ampegy’s slogan is “More Markets, More Opportunity”. Ampegy’s founders and their supplier, Spark Energy are also very reputable.

4.) Ampegy has a better compensation plan than Viridian, Ignite, Ambit and all of the other companies playing the “$400 game” to get in.

The Hidden Truth About Residual Income…The Ampegy Cons:

Ok, now, what a lot of you have been waiting for…”Why would I be ready to join, credit card in hand and suddenly change my mind”?

On the surface, Ampegy LOOKS like a very good plan, stuffed with very exciting fast start bonuses that conquer any $400 opportunity, unlimited depth over-rides, and “pre-launch” promotion bonuses but what I realized was one very, VERY important thing.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION HONESTLY:

AM I TRULY LOOKING TO WALK AWAY WITH AS MUCH RESIDUAL INCOME AS POSSIBLE FROM A MARKETING PLAN?

If you answered YES to this question, I need you to pay close attention to what I am about to say in the next few paragraphs here:

Let’s put all of the hype and fast-start bonuses aside and take a look at the true residual that is being built in the Ampegy plan:

What do we earn residuals on in the energy business?

CUSTOMERS!

NOT… and let me repeat that again, NOT DISTRIBUTORS. (This is very important to understand). In 99% of all network marketing companies you get paid to just recruit the distributor and then your residual is tied to his/her monthly order, which is very bad for retaining your residuals because if a distributor gets tired of  paying their auto-ship…guess who losses their pay…YOU!

In the energy business, we GET PAID RESIDUALLY ON THE CUSTOMERS that are brought onto the service. These customers are saving money, possibility making money and they have no reason to drop because they are on the service for free while paying less for a bill they pay anyway, perfect model.

IF WE GET PAID RESIDUALS ON CUSTOMERS IN THE ENERGY BUSINESS ,

CAN WE BE IN AGREEMENT THAT THE GROUP WITH THE MOST CUSTOMERS WINS?

If we look at the Ampegy plan carefully, you will come to realize that you will not actually be able to build the largest residual income possible with their marketing plan:

Think about it…If you approach 15 people about the opportunity, how many of them will be ready to get started and plunk down the $400 dollars?

Let’s be generous and say that 5 out of 15 commit to joining at the $400 level (this is obviously higher than the companies averages for recruiting).

Now of course, you would have just earned your money back with a $500 fast-start bonus ($100 profit in your wallet) but let’s be honest and take a close look at the residuals.

Now, if all of those 5 people go out and hit their fast-start bonuses and get their 3 customers:

5 x 3 = 15 customers …folks, after all of that work and pay to join your team and hit their customer requirement, you are only left with a residual income on 15 customers! 15 customers would barely even pay you $7 of monthly residual in the Ampegy model.

I don’t know about you, but that seems like a lot of loopholes to go through just to get paid on 15 customers residually!

So What Is The Verdict?

After doing my extreme due diligence between Ampegy and North American Power (the second company that I referred to in the beginning of this post), it was a complete no brainer that North American Power was just a better business model for earning a true (and very significant) residual income and here is why:

North American Power has a “No investment, No risk, No cost of entry model”. NO COST! Imagine how many people you could recruit into your opportunity if the compensation was the same, in-fact better than a company that was charging $299, $399, $499 but you did not have to ask for a dime…You could get 10, 50, 70…HUNDREDS and hundreds of people into your business.

But most importantly, CUSTOMERS and RESIDUAL Income…

Let’s just do the math, if you approached 15 people and offered them a ligament opportunity that had no investment and no risk attached how many could you get…

15!

Now, how many could those 15 get?? Let’s say 10…

15×10 = That’s 150 CUSTOMERS that you would be getting paid residual on with the very same amount of work, plus no fear of presenting the opportunity, no risk and most importantly no damage to your reputation.

MLM Prospecting Webinar- Creating "Posture", Handling Any Objection and Recruiting Effortlessly

Wow, last night MLMLeadSystemPro released one of the most powerful and informative MLM Prospecting Webinars I have ever seen! Be sure to really take the time to watch this whole video, take notes, replay it and save the link on your favorites because Mr. Ray Higdon teaches the exact methods he uses to be fluent in MLM Prospecting, including how to recruit, how to handle any objection, how to position yourself as a recruiting expert and how to really develop and refine your skills.

MLM Prospecting tip 1: Your goals and education should vary depending on how many people you recruit per month. Ray Higdon explains that for those who are recruiting over 10 people per month, they should focus on vision, accountability, ways to train their people and work on new phrases. For those who are recruiting less than 10 people a month, Ray says that they should be working on mindset, cracking the subconscious and not complaining.

MLM Prospecting tip 2: It is important to be able to “let someone go”…”You know what, your really not the best fit from my team…You can’t be on my team but I do know someone who can help you.”

MLM Prospecting tip 3: Working on your communication skills are very important to mlm prospecting and recruiting. Being able to pick up on the subtle cues that people use, audio, visual and sensory are what will set you apart as a master recruiter.
