    You are so right regarding it is in your upline mentor’s best interest to help you succeed. In the past, when my upline mentor didn’t realize this and offered no assistance; I would seek out another mentor to help me in my journey.

      I did the same Gary. My upline failed to realize this as well. She was only interested in how many points I had acheived. I am glad I found help online. My virtual uplines are giving me so much value and my journey is getting more exciting now. Thanks for the comment.

  • All these are great steps for anyone who is really serious about building the business. Thanks for this post.

      Dr Lisa, Its always an honour to receive your comments. Not having a mentor costed me big time. Now I make sure I invest big time in mentors. Thanks for the comment.
