What do you do if your top leaders in your MLM leave?
Should you stay or go?
Here’s my best advice on exactly what to do if your leaders are jumping ship.
What To Do If Your Top Leaders Leave Your Network Marketing Company
Determine IF You Should Leave
Well, first of all, I would determine IF you should leave.
We’ve been working with different leaders in different companies for nine years now. We’ve worked with probably 20 – 25 different leaders that had over 100,000 people on their team.
One of my good buds and one of our clients is Jeff Altgilbers out of Tennessee. He’s got 500,000 people on his team. We’ve got Nicola Smith Jackson, one of my friends and clients, she built a team of over 300,000. We got one of the graduates, Luciano Fidalgo, over 100,000 in his team. We’ve worked on a lot of people.
What I have noticed, is there are quite a few earners out there that hop from deal to deal to deal.
And so, if a bunch of your leaders leave, that should NOT be enough evidence for you to want to leave.
I’m not saying not to ever leave. I’m not saying that.
But there requires more intelligence, there requires a little bit more thought there.
Lessons From Larry
One of my good buds and coaching graduates is Larry Thompson. He helped mentor me and then we were blessed to actually coach him.
Larry and Taylor Thompson are just legends. Larry’s been in the industry now five decades, right? And he is the person that traveled with Jim Rohn for 29 years, speaking on stage in training. He’s shared the stage with Jim Rohn more than anyone else on planet Earth. He’s awesome and I really love his message. I love what he teaches in the profession.
He was in a company and the company was really hardcore attacked. Hard. Like, I’m talking like Dateline, primetime TV. And this was, I believe, prior to like cable TV, where you did not have so many options. Everyone watched prime time TV. And their company was hammered. And I don’t know the exact financials of it, but it was a $1 billion company, went way, way down.
So what happened? Most people left.
The people that stayed built it back up to $1 billion and beyond and are very glad they stayed.
And so, just the fact that leaders are leaving is not enough information for you to say, “Oh, I gotta be out of here, too.”
It depends on what are the reasons for leaving.
4 Important Factors
The important factors of a team (some of this is on the company) is:
Those are four of the big ones.
What kind of culture, is it at a team level and at a company level? How’s the community? How’s the training? And, how’s the leadership?
No Company Events or Trainings?
I just want to point out… There are some companies out there (I won’t name them) that are well over $1 billion a year, where the company really only does two things.
They send a check and they send the products.
That’s what they do. They don’t actually run events. They don’t do trainings. And, they don’t have Facebook groups.
They don’t have any of that stuff. That is all left up to the leadership.
If that’s the case, then as reps, and as leaders, you can actually create most of the things required in a company.
Not Paying Or Delivering Products?
Now, if a company just isn’t paying or not delivering on products, and they’re consistently doing that? And there’s no hope for it to get better?
If there’s nothing to cling to, then obviously, that can only go on for so long.
But if you believe in the vision of the leadership, if you believe in the product or service, if you see it as a temporary kind of problem and you still have hope in your heart and you still want to be there, then it may not be the right thing to leave. You may regret that.
Is The Other Company Really That Much Better?
I would not allow the leaving a bunch of leaders without very, very solid reasons for me to leave.
One, I think the worst reason to leave any company is because you believe another company is easier.

All The Same Skills Required
Because it’s the same set of skills. It’s marketing. Trying to attract people to come to you.
It’s prospecting, reaching out individuals, see if they’re open to your product, service or opportunity.
And, it’s the same set of skills, whether you’re 4X Education, whether you’re travel, whether you’re health and wellness, whether you’re weight loss, whether you’re shampoo.
It’s the same set of skills.
Not Required To Be Passionate
What if you find a product you’re just way more passionate about? Well, I’m a customer of a lot of products that I like. I don’t build their business, but I’m a customer.
Just like vice versa, right? So it’s not a requirement, right? It’s recommended. It’s suggested.
I hope that you are passionate, but it’s not a requirement for you to be passionate about your product or service for you to build a business, regardless of what anyone tells you.
And it’s actually detrimental for leaders to say otherwise.
So I know leaders that’ll say, “You gotta be a product of the product. You gotta be passionate,” and they actually will lose people on their team.
Because people will say, “I guess this isn’t me.”
It’s not a requirement. Is it a suggestion.
Is it recommended? Yes. Is it a good idea? Of course.
But it’s not a requirement. Just like it’s not a requirement if I’m passionate about a product or service, it’s not a requirement that I build a business there. Not a requirement.
So stop so closely associating your passion with business because it’s not a requirement.
I’m passionate about what I do and I think if I wasn’t passionate about what I’m doing then I would have a cap on how well I could do.
I love what I do. I love how I show up every single day inside Rank Makers and doing an action step and video for you guys. But it’s not a requirement for you to build a business and have to be a product of the product, have to be passionate about the product or service. I’ve seen too many examples of that for it to be the case.
