Curran Alvarez found himself in the unemployment office at 22-years-old and thought, “What am I doing here?” After some soul-searching and a chance encounter with a coworker who would later become his wife, Curran found his way and began his entrepreneurial journey.
“That’s when my entire life shifted, and I was introduced to this crazy thing called network marketing,” Curran explains. Curran shares his story, along with lots of useful and actionable advice with Gabe for this episode of Today’s Business Leaders.
Finding His Way
Curran struggled to find his way and make ends meet, and he eventually ended up taking the leap and becoming an entrepreneur. The decision was ultimately very easy for him because he believed in the product he was selling.
How to do Network Marketing Right
Based on his own very successful experiences, Curran is able to narrow down the basic steps to launching a successful network marketing business.
1. Don’t be distracted by the marketing that’s out there. There is no instant gratification, and you must shift from an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset. The entrepreneur lifestyle may require you to work a lot before you get paid.
2. Belief in what you have and in yourself. If you do not believe in what you are doing, then people will see through this, and you will not succeed.
3. Put your ego down and listen to people who have done this before you. Figuring things out on your own can be time-consuming, and you may not learn everything you need to know.
4. Pick one coach or mentor to guide you on your way. Figure out where you need to be and find a coach or mentor who can get you there. When you arrive at your destination figure out your next goal and find a new mentor to help you get there.
