Thanks to Eileen Silva for this idea to help keep people choose a goal, and give them hope to keep at it …

Ask your new partner how much money they would like to be making and when.  Eileen gives an example of someone who wants to make $100000 per month after a year (!), but you can adapt this to any amount and any time frame.  Here are her instructions …

  • Write the amount you want to earn per month at the bottom of a piece of paper.
  • Divide the page like a calendar, and number the months from 1 to 12.
  • Work backwards from your target, putting half the amount in each previous square.
  • If your target is the same as Eileen’s, your month 12 will show $50000, month 11 $25000, then $12500, $6250, $3125, $1562.50, $781.25, $390.63, $195.31, $97.66, $48.83, and finally $24.41 in month 1!
  • If your target is more down to Earth, like $5000 per month, your numbers will run 2500, 1250, 625, 312.50, 156.25, 78.13,  39.06, 19.53, 9.77, 4.88, 2.44, and finally $1.22 in month 1!

We all know that this perfect doubling never happens in real life, but it’s a great way to show someone the power of The Slight Edge.

The surprising thing is how little one has to make in the early stages of a network marketing career.  As Eileen says, if you can show someone how to make just $171 in their first quarter and show them this chart, they will realize that they are well on their way to earning a huge income, and will never quit the business!

If their goal is $5000 per month, earning under $10 in their first quarter can mean that they are on their way, as long as they aim to keep doubling their check.
