So, what the heck can a Pit Crew teach us about Success in Network Marketing? Plenty…
A pit crew consists of eight members. The “jackman”, 2 tire changers, the front tire carrier, the rear tire carrier, the gas man and the utility. If the driver doesn’t have a good pit crew, they might as well stay in bed.
Network Marketing is not about you alone. It’s about building a team and leveraging the efforts of many. You can only go so far alone.
In Nascar, the pit stop (crew) is just as important as the driver when it comes to winning the race. A team can have the best car and the most brilliant driver, but that would be nothing without a good pit crew.
You may be the best promoter, marketer, communicator, recruiter, salesperson, etc. etc. but if what you do can’t be duplicated by the masses, your success is limited.
A race team plans a pit strategy prior to the start of every race. Choosing the optimum pit strategy of how many stops to make and when to make them is crucial in having a successful race.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
However, a team’s pit strategy is not a fixed, immutable thing; it is subject to change during the race to take into account the unpredictable events that happen in every race.
The marketplace, technology and the industry are constantly changing so your plan needs to be fluid.
The pit strategy is calculated carefully so that the amount of time to be “given away” to other competitors in pit stops is balanced out by the time gained while on the track, resulting, theoretically, in the shortest possible time to cover the scheduled distance.
In building your Network Marketing business, time management is key. You need to leverage your time so that you’re getting through the “busy work” as quickly as possible so that the majority of your time can be spent “on the track” (income producing activities).
Pit crews gauge success on a scale of milliseconds. Being able to push a car through the pit in a tenth of a second less than the other teams translates into winning times on the track. Training, Practice And Concentration Are The Keys To Faster Pit Stops. It’s all about getting out of the pits faster than the other guys, and training and preparation are the keys to unlocking that success.
Network Marketing is no different. Training and Personal Development is key because you need to learn the skills necessary to be successful and it’s a journey, not an event. If you stop learning, you stop earning.
Working on a NASCAR pit crew is a tireless and intense job but worthwhile for NASCAR lovers.
Network Marketing is hard work but for those looking for time and financial freedom, it’s worth it and it’s that long-term goal that keeps us going.
That’s what a pit crew can teach us about success in Network Marketing.
In NASCAR, a talented driver is of paramount importance, but a skilled pit crew can make the difference between glorious victory and ignominious defeat.
In Network Marketing, the individuals who manage their time, build a solid team, create a system that can be duplicated, focus on the income producing activities, are constantly learning, adapt to the constant changes in the marketplace, consistently work their plan and have a passion for what they do will ultimately win the race!
