You’re calling BS a little about the one hour a day bit, right?
I get old-school network marketers who join my business ask the same question.
They think I should be swamped with calls, doing three-ways with dozens of team members, and living on Facebook chat to make six-figures with MLM.
But, I’m not.
I’m actually petting my cat more than I’m on Facebook or on the phone.
In fact, in the last 5 years of doing MLM all online, I’ve done maybe two three-way calls.
Never done a home party or a hotel meeting either.
Yes, I have a successful team working all online as well, and yes, I work one hour a day and make doctor’s salary money.
So, How Do I Work One Hour a Day Exactly?
I gotta share my quick story first.
I’m a massive introvert by trade.
Flipped burgers for a living and was a drunk.
Got sober. Became more introverted.
Since I was sober I had more aspirations to achieve success.
I was always a big dreamer.
Network marketing came along and looked a lot better than the affiliate marketing I was doing on the side.
Wanted to escape flipping burgers. Was approaching 40 and I was still joking around with twenty year olds in a hot greasy kitchen and my back was sore.
I noticed network marketing leaders flashing big checks on the web.
Couldn’t understand or comprehend how some of them made $125,000 per month.
Wanted what they had, joined MLM in 2014 and studied everything I could about this new, mysterious profession.
I’ll skip the whole definition of what makes a legit MLM versus a pyramid, needless to say, I was committed to the profession and dove head in.
Still introverted, I wanted to take my online affiliate marketing tactics of sharing links on social media to earn commissions to network marketing tactics of sharing links on social media to earn commissions.
See, network marketing had that exponential income factor because you got paid on every sale your team made.
With affiliate marketing you usually got paid one time and that was it.
I wanted residual income.
I wanted to get paid over and over for work I did one time.
I’m sure you like the sound of that.
How to Unsuck MLM
Of course, like with any start-up, the first two years sucked.
Blood, sweat, and tears were involved.
Lived on credit cards and prayed for a leader to join my team.
Finally, my automated MLM fantasy was coming to life.
I started to attract marketers like myself who had some money to invest and only wanted to work MLM one hour a day.
Tadah, I had the marketing skills to show them what I was doing and they started to build their MLM one hour a day.
Duplication started to happen because my system was so easy and the company I was involved with had a built-in sales funnel with an effective autoresponder.
All I had to do was generate a lead and the company emailed my lead on my behalf – that’s why I don’t work a lot.
I generate 20 to 60 leads a day and let the company email them.
That allows me to pet the cat more than being on chat boxes on FB all day.

Here’s the most simple breakdown how I build one hour MLM:
One – Generate leads with a killer ad campaign (I show my team the exact sales copy) Set and forget. 20 minutes.
Two – Let the company email my leads until I get a sign-up.
Three – Teach new sign-up the same exact lead-generation technique I used to get them. (I copy and paste a welcome letter and send to them with the technique in the welcome letter.) 5 minutes.
Four – When my new sign-up gets a new sign-up I tell them to send the same welcome letter to their sign-up that I sent them.
Five – Cycle is complete.
Ahh, the Masses. . .
Of course, the masses don’t like to do anything, so maybe one out of ten signups will run advertising.
And, maybe two or three signups will do it consistently and become your rockstars.
Good thing about MLM is that you can get a huge income just from 3 to 5 leaders on your team.
Trick is recruiting consistently for a couple years until those rockstars emerge.
But that’s business.
2 to 3 years is nothing in small business land.
Here’s the exact formula to scare off any Grant Cardone 10x hustle wannabes:
- You’ll need to generate 50 to 200 leads to get your first sign-up. (this is without any personal follow-up on your behalf.)
- You’ll need to recruit 50 to 200 people to find a Rockstar.
- Generate 20 to 60 leads a day for 2 to 3 years to find your 2 to 3 rockstars to make six to seven figures a year.
If you don’t take people quitting personally you’ll go very far in MLM.
Here’s How I Draw Boundaries to Keep My Workday Down to One Hour
One – Like I said before, I don’t do three-way calls.
If someone new on my team thinks they are going to get me doing three-ways for them they will get this reply:
“I just don’t have time. Most of my team just run ads. Try that. It works!”
Two – If someone on my team complains that their business is slow and wants to brainstorm ideas on the phone, I say this: “Run more advertising. It works.” This knocks out a one hour needless call.
Three – If someone wants me to talk to their friend on the phone to convince them that the product is superior to other companies, I respond with: “Just tell them what excited you about the business.” This knocks out another one hour call, and more calls down the road because you would have opened up that floodgate if you did one!
Four – If someone says, “I just don’t have money to do advertising.” I say: You can get friends and family in the business and do youtube videos, they generate leads and it’s free.
Notice how I redirect everyone back to generating leads?
Leads are the backbone of this business, no leads means no sales.
How to Build Relationships with Your Rockstars
Okay, you’re probably thinking that I create no bond with my downline, and that is further from the truth.
I notice when people are recruiting and budding into rockstars.
I start to text the budding rockstars.
I begin building a relationship because I know that they aren’t part of the 80% who eventually quit.
These budding rockstars accepted my welcome letter, ran advertising, and are working the business.
They also reach out after the welcome letter which is a big step and a true sign you might have a budding rockstar.
Most people I won’t hear from after sending the welcome letter which means no more help from me.
They have to throw the ball back at least, after I send the welcome letter.
I don’t hand hold and neither should you.
“The cream rises to the top.”
And, If I know they jive with my style, then it’s game on.
To Wrap Up One Hour MLM
MLM is not a personality contest, it’s a business of sifting through a lot of people to find a few leaders.
Anyone who joins MLM and has to love everyone in the company is deceived.
There will be people you don’t like, but you can completely control your success in MLM and steer clear of any drama.
Is my style of building MLM normal, absolutely not, but I’ve done it for 5 years and I’m very successful.
I realize I will only attract a fraction of the masses who want big rah rah events and massive upline support in network marketing.
I am only seeking Entrepreneurs and marketers who only have a little time per day do build a second income stream and eventually life-changing income.
If that’s you, let’s get you MLM automated HERE!
