|Q: What qualities and type of personality makes someone a leader
in your organisation?
Peter: A desire to succeed, determination, tenacity, confidence,
unselfishness, commitment, the ability to talk to people and a willingness
to help others.
Q: In your opinion why are some networkers more successful than
Peter: I reckon that this is mainly due to their beliefs. Having
belief in their Company, the products, in network marketing, and in themselves
is of paramount importance. Without concrete and unshakeable beliefs in
all four, they will struggle. Another factor is their ability to talk to
people. If they can't tell people what they have to offer, they'll find
it very difficult to get them to buy from them or to join them in the business.
Q: How do you balance family life around your business?
Peter: First of all, I class my business more as a hobby that
I get paid for, rather than work. And to illustrate this let me tell you
a story of how my family life and this business work together. On the 20th
August, this year, I
|married Tracey, who I had met whilst I was working the business in
Essex. After our fabulous wedding we went on our dream honeymoon to the
famous Sun City resort in South Africa. It was while we were walking around
the complex that we got chatting to Dellon and Marcus, a couple of 'time
share' reps. When I mentioned our line of business they became very interested.
I said I'd call our secretary in England and get her to send out a copy
of our business information pack, which contains two of the company videos
and a selection of brochures, etc. They arrived the Thursday before we
left and after an hour-long chat over coffee with them, they were more
than keen to get started. On arriving home, they called up and placed their
first initial order for 15 units. Their goal now is to build this
up to 100 units a month by early next year - you literally can do this
Q: Does your family play any role in your success?
Peter: The help and support I get from my family, especially
from Tracey, have all been instrumental in my success. Although initially
my family was sceptical, that all soon changed when they started to see
it beginning to work and the cheques began rolling in.
|Q: Who or what has influenced you the most in being successful?
Peter: The biggest inspirations for my success have come from
my friends and mentors, Graham Barton, Paul Robinson and the American trainer
Anthony Robbins. Graham, my sponsor, for his ongoing help, support, encouragement
and his example. Paul, for initially pointing me in the right direction,
for all his help and for the work he did with me around Europe. And Tony
Robbins for his inspirational seminar "Turn fear into Power - The Firewalk
Experience", which I attended in London about five years ago. That seminar
was a real turning point for me. It showed me that if you put your mind
to it, you really can do anything.
Q: What's happening with your business at the moment?
Peter: The business is now expanding rapidly and is branching out across
Europe, especially in Germany and Austria. One of my distributors, in Germany,
Michael Reich has done an incredible job of building our team out there.
His commitment and determination got him through to the Executive Level
in just six months and, in fact,
