I would recommend anyone who is just starting out to simply start out by doing some research about which every programme and niche market your planing to invest your time and effort in. This will help you to make a more informed decision in the programme of choice you decide to join. Additionally, even after doing your research you will come across obstacles  and challenges along the way however do not let that ever prevent you from progressing as the same have happened to many before you.

If you are just starting out, make sure the program that you join after you do your due diligence is something that you are passionate about.  People know this and feel it when you talk to them.  You must like the product or service and have used it and get results!

Get training from your sponsor or the company.  Training is critical to your success! Be a sponge!

Finally, don't give up or quit!  If you want it, be determined and go for it!

I know you ask for 1 so forgive me in advance, but.

As my first mentor, Dale Calvert would say, and he went on to become a MLM/NWM Multi Millionare, but being the company distributor trainer he always said and taught, "Until You Know Why, the How Doesn't Matter.

Work on your why, why are you even doing this or any other business or becoming an entrepreneur?

Build your belief in yourself through daily personal development.

Get/build your belief in the MLM/NWM industry.

Get/build your belief in the Company you are in.

Use/Get/build belief in the product.

Build belief in the Leaders in the company, the owners and your upline and team.

Notice all the belief examples, why, because people are going to tear you and the industry down and your why and belief will keep you pushing forward.

I'm telling you from experience, my why and beliefs have kept me in the game though I've wanted to give up hundreds of times.

But if I gave the most important 1 it would be, have a big/great why for doing business.

The one piece of advice to someone who is just starting our in network marketing is can you be honest with yourself are you open to learning new things. In other words, are you willing to give up the rains and be guided to do what works? Many people think they are, I for one thought I too was trainable, I found out I was lying to myself. I told myself I couldn't do what they told me to do the people who had already made millions. I wasn't like them and what I should have said I am open to learning new things.

It took me just about 19 years before I realized I wasn't being honest with myself or open to learning new things. I am the reason I am not where I wanted to be in that time frame. So my advice is be honest with yourself and that you are willing to become that person that is takes to get what you want. I am successful today because I never gave up, I learned many things and for that I am able to answer this question today and know it is an honest to goodness best advice I could share.

BTW I agree with all the other things that have been written as advice to someone who just starting out. But we had to choose one piece of advice.

You may go through a lot of changes to get where you want but it is all worth it in the end! Being your own boss ROCK!

Never ever give up with your passion! There will be bumps along the road but these are included in the journey to success. If you truly believe in the business that you are with and your company, products and high services has quality, ethical and with high morale, just carry on and don't ever quit!

Try free business first.
They may be as good as those that cost you money.
DonĀ“t go for those that promise high benefits almost instantly.
If their ad has a mansion, beutiful couple and children with an impresive car, they want to impress you out of your money.
Go for simple believable business that give you return for your work.
Skip those that promise to pay after months of work. When the time comes to get paid they will have disappeared.
This is my oppinion

Another piece of advice would also include never letting someone else bad experiences prevent you from realizing your online dream as some of these said person may had not done the proper research and about the business to understand how it works and they may not be as persistent and dedicated to a business opportunity as you are .

Watch what all the others are doing, and don't do that.

I think too many copycats think they can jump onto a bandwagon and get a piece of the pie.  The problem is, with the entry of each copycat, the slice that would have been your piece gets smaller and smaller.  Offer something unique that has mass and universal, whether it be a product of your own design, idea or service.  It's the only way to 'make' them come to you.  This requires research, innovative thinking and a high tolerance for risk.

Make sure somebody wants your product before investing a lot of time and money.

I always ask 3 questions in the first meeting I have with the startups I mentor and these are:

Who is your Target group?

What is the Target group problem your product is solving?

What is your brand and product story supporting the fact that your product is the ultimate solution to the Target group issue.

These 3 questions are all designed to understand if there is a reason for the product/service to be and if there are people ready to buy the product/service. Get this wrong and you will struggle in making your company a success.

There are many other questions I of course ask to the companies I coach. Interested in learning more? You can reach me out here Secret Affiliate Millionaire

Good luck!
