As part of a regular discussion with one of the leaders in my business we were identifying the type of individual we most like to work with. As an online marketer you may think that because you have access to over a billion people – your path to success is assured because the market is so large. Yet the marketers who sustain success over the longest period of time have a very specific customer they do best with. My ideal team member that I want to attract is in many ways like myself.
They realize that they deserve a quality of life that will come only from acquiring new marketable skills that work in the 21st century. They are open minded to new ideas and new ways of doing business. This person is creative and are willing to “think outside the box.”
This person has come to the realization that true freedom will not come from any traditional means like a job or the old adage of “go to school, get a good job, move up the ladder and save for retirement.” They have had a taste for corporate America (or the corporate world) and they realize that it is NOT for them. This person truly wants to create a better future for themselves as well as those they come into contact with. They are service oriented and are willing to work towards a greater good. They realize that personal and professional development is a vital part of success of themselves and others. They believe or are open minded to the idea that to make the world better they must become better. If they want to truly “serve” on a large scale they need to change and grow both personally and professionally. My ideal team member is between the age of 21 and 41. They are either single or with a young family and they are family oriented. A major part of their “drive” or their “why” is focused on creating a better life for their families. Either to create a better life for their children or to help their parents retire more comfortably. This person realizes they deserve more out of life than what would be considered “average.” This person is not average. They are in the process of becoming above average through personal development or are open to becoming more through the process of personal development. They are connectors, people magnets with the ability to attract and lead others.
My ideal team member is hungry. They realize now is the time to create and act and they do not have to wait for circumstances to be perfect before they take action. They are willing to do what is necessary to attain their goals for a better future. They do not operate from fear and doubt but from a position of “where there’s a will there’s a way.” They may even be a little stubborn. They are confident in themselves and their ability to get the job done. They are good at attracting and empowering others to assist them with their own goals and not afraid to ask for assistance from others. They do not have huge egos. They are humble yet also confident in themselves.
They have passion in life for activities they enjoy doing as well as for people. They are adventurous and they are not afraid to take risks. Their passions may include, skiing, snowboarding, golfing, rock climbing, skydiving, hiking, or mountain biking. Activities that require a commitment and that get more fun the more they are practiced and pursued. They realize that they may have to sacrifice today so they can live a better tomorrow. They are comfortable with getting uncomfortable and have a “no pain no gain” attitude. They realize that success in anything requires a real commitment and that anything worth doing will not come easily. They are not afraid to get a few bumps and bruises along the way and are not easily derailed when the going gets tough because they are committed to getting more out of life.
They know they have a very successful person inside them. This person just needs the right catalyst to appear and to inspire and lead. They have untapped potential greatness and creativity within them. Again they just need the right mentor and catalyst to show them how to unlock it.
