Hey network marketers on LinkedIn, let’s talk about the power of association. Are you familiar with the quote by the legendary Warren Buffett that says, “It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction”? Well, if not, let me break it down for you in relation to your personal and professional growth.

We all know the saying, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” And when it comes to building a successful network marketing business, this saying couldn’t be more true. Who you choose to surround yourself with can make or break your business. That’s where the power of association comes in.

So, what does Warren Buffett mean by “associates”? In this context, associates can refer to a variety of things – books, audio’s, and mentors. Let’s break it down even further.

Books: Ever heard the saying, “Leaders are readers”? It’s not just a catchy phrase, it’s the truth. Reading books can expand your knowledge, perspective, and skill set. And when you surround yourself with books written by successful people, you are essentially associating yourself with their wisdom and experience. So go ahead, stock up on books written by leaders in the network marketing industry and watch your mindset and business grow.

Audio’s: In a world where we are constantly on the go, it can be difficult to find time to sit down and read. Enter audio’s. With the rise of podcasts, audiobooks, and motivational talks, it’s easier than ever to surround yourself with the voices of successful people. So when you’re stuck in traffic or doing chores around the house, why not pop in some audio’s that will inspire and motivate you to reach higher goals?

Mentors: Last but certainly not least, mentors are crucial in the power of association. Find someone who has achieved what you want to achieve and learn from them. Attend seminars, workshops, or simply reach out to someone through LinkedIn and ask for their advice. Mentors can provide you with guidance, inspiration, and a valuable network of their own.

Now, the second part of Warren Buffett’s quote is just as important – “No drama or negativity. Just higher goals and higher motivation.” This means that when choosing your associates, whether it be books, audio’s, or mentors, make sure they bring positive energy and good vibes. Jealousy and hate have no place in your journey towards success.

In conclusion, as network marketers, we have the opportunity to create our own success by surrounding ourselves with the right people and resources. So, go ahead and apply the power of association in your life and watch your business soar to new heights. As for the drama and negativity, well, just leave that for the reality TV shows.
