Practicing The Golden Rule In Network Marketing

Practicing the Golden Rule in life is important for happiness. But to NOT practice the Golden Rule in Network Marketing is self sabotaging!

Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.

OR

Don’t do unto others what you Don’t want them to do to you.

I’ve been in Network Marketing now for 17 years and I’ve seen a lot of broken Golden Rules. I’ve also seen the Golden Rule played out beautifully.

If we are Christian Network Marketers striving to honor Christ in all we do, that would definitely include how we run our business.

For example:

If you wouldn’t want others to sell products to your customers, then don’t sell to someone else’s customer if you know the customer already has a distributor. (unless they are in your downline and you transfer points)

If  don’t want someone to persuade your customer or distributor to move over to their team then don’t try to persuade some else’s customer of distributor to move to your team.

How can we practice the Golden Rule in a positive way in our Network Marketing business?

Do encourage open meetings in your area. You may not be able to control what other leaders in your city do but you can control what you do as a leader.

Do have a spirit of generosity.

Do encourage a spirit of sharing with other teams. Share training, training materials, responsibilities. I’ve noticed that the teams that share the most and are the most open and generous are the ones that have great growth and are well respected.

Do respect and protect other people’s downline.

Do operate with the highest integrity in mind.  I love this definition of integrity that I heard at a convention once.

“Integrity means doing the right thing even when no one is looking.”

But there is always someone watching and that is the Lord. If we care about honoring Him in our business then we will be ever mindful.

A word if you’ve broken the Golden Rule.

No one is perfect. You may have broken the Golden Rule in a small or big way but you are ready to change your ways, turn over a new leaf and strive toward a Network Marketing business with integrity.

If you’ve specifically offended someone and it is affecting your relationship with them and your business, go to them in honesty and humility. Admit your wrong action. Tell them you are turning over a new leaf, that you will strive from here on out to operate your business in highest integrity. Isn’t that what you would want them to do to you? (sound familiar?) Don’t bring up what they might have done to you. Don’t have any strings attached.

If you do this, if you practice the Golden Rule in your Network Marketing business, if you make integrity and generosity your highest priority in your business, not only will the Lord bless you for that but you will have peace of mind knowing that you are pleasing God and truly helping others.

May you truly be blessed  as you practice the Golden Rule in your Network Marketing business!

Christian Network Marketing Company vs. Christian Culture

From time to time I run across people who are specifically looking for a “Christian Network Marketing Company”.

I’ve been involved in Christian Direct Sales companies and love the atmosphere. But does a company really need to be specifically a “Christian” company in order for it to be Christ honoring?

I think, when people are looking for a Christian Network Marketing company, what they really want is a company with a Christian Culture. In other words, a Christ honoring culture.

What makes a strong Christian Culture in a Network Marketing (or even direct sales) company?

  • Strong integrity  – When you find a company with strong integrity you have found a good one. In my opinion, a company without a good strong integrity is a sinking ship.

~~ Integrity at the very top. The owner, CEO, all corporate  leadership.

~~ Integrity with the products. They are what they say they are. They do what the company says they will do.

~~ No lawsuits or legal dirty laundry. I’ve seen too many companies that have long lists of  illegal actions.

~~ Loyalty to the distributors.

  • A spirit of positivity.
  • An Atmosphere of openness and helping one another among distributors whether they are in your team or not.
  • A Strong culture of personal growth and development.
  • Mutual respect and protection of the each other’s teams (organizations). Do unto others what you would have them do unto you. Practicing the Golden Rule.
  • Giving honor to God in your business whether in verbal testimony or/and in the way you run your business day in and day out.
  • Language that isn’t foul or vulgar.

A company does not have to be a Christian company with Christian products in order for it to be Christ honoring and have a Christian Culture. Although, I’m certainly not putting down those companies in any way. There are many good ones out there.

At a time when I was in a slump in my business a few years back, I received the quarterly magazine from my company. In it was a letter from our founder and owner’s 22 year old daughter. I was so blessed by it. She very openly shared about her Christian faith and her desire to see Christ honored all around the globe through our company. This, from the person who will one day take the reigns of our company!  I was so blessed! This is not a “Christian” company but one that is honoring Christ from the top down.

So if you are in search of a Christian Network Marketing company, keep you options open and broader by considering the importance of a Christian culture.

I hope this has been helpful to you. Let me know!

Abundant Blessings!
