QNET PRO Talks: V Partner Arun George On the Biggest Common Mistake In Network Marketing

QNET Pro – V Partner Arun George’s shares his Network Marketing Tips.

V Partner Arun George had a blossoming career in the corporate world at an early age, but in 2000, he decided to go full-time with network marketing – and he hasn’t looked back since.

Now, he is an esteemed V Partner and global mentor in the V Family. He talks about the biggest common mistake in network marketing that negatively affects the reputation of the industry.

What is the biggest common mistake in network marketing that affects the reputation of the industry?

The biggest mistake, in my opinion, is having the wrong expectation. I don’t know if there is a better word for that, so let me explain it. People sometimes get into our business with all kinds of wrong expectations, and when they have these wrong expectations, they approach the business the wrong way. They don’t put in the effort that is required, and when they don’t put in the right kind of effort, they obviously don’t get the right results. And soon they give up.  People who enter with the wrong expectations end up quitting almost within a few days; that is the biggest problem in our business.

When you look at network marketing, one major complaint up there is that there are only a few people who become successful in it. Whether that may be true, the nature of the business makes success dependent on what we do and don’t do. When people enter the business, they think it is some kind of get-rich-quick scheme, or that their upline is going to work for them, or that they just need to bring in a few people to make them rich overnight. All these are wrong expectations, and shows that they really don’t understand what they’re getting into.

For us to become successful in anything, we need to really understand what we’re getting into. If you’re getting a law degree and you don’t know what it takes to get that, chances are within a few months, you’re going to quit. The people who complain about college are the same. Likewise, we need to understand that what we’re getting into is a business. While there are different people here to help us with training and various other tools, it is a business, and it takes business-like focus, business-like dedication, business-like effort to become successful.

What do you think? Let’s discuss in comment space below.

    I wanna ask a question; is it possible to fail in the business after activation? Or does it only happen after sign up when one does not put much effort?

  • Nguyen Thi Bich Lien

    Tks for sharing the true things in business. No pains no gains. Right efforts and results have no better choice than coming to us

  • Fatma

    I’ve signed up recently and I’m having some problems recruiting new members. .any advices for me??

  • Roopesh

    It’s very true people just don’t put the right effort and expect moon from the business. Quite often the expectation is set before the sign up. Later the disciplined effort is not followed. Which leads to failure.

  • Ashish Vaishnav

    Absolutely. One can’t get rich overnight in any form of business and that is a very wrong expectation to come with into the business. One must set some small weekly goals to attain that super goal of financial freedom. Take one step at a time, put required time and efforts and super goal will be ours.

  • Vishwanath PM

    Most of uplines example in Bangalore, uplines explaining QNET compensation plan max out criteria in wrong way. Their intention is to immediately closing prospect on table. Uplines are not clear about the basics

  • Hussien El Amssy

    I agree with all of that, but what if you are very serious about the business and welling to put the maximum effort you could, but you are in a point that you do not know what to do next. I think there should more training tools for new partners like me just to get in the right track and you can leave me alone. I can depend on my self then but don’t sign me up and leave me alone and say go work and do the muricles . It does not work this way. Thank you

  • Abraham

  • Raghavendra Kulkarni

    It’s true

  • Sujit Doshi

    Its true

  • Sujit Doshi

    Very True

  • Sandhya Dhakal

    So true
    Basically they really didn’t get the meaning of delayed gratification for the success we aspire for.
    And ultimately blame the business for not working in the way we expected but the fact of the matter is we didn’t work the way business expected us to.

  • Secret

    I would say that it is predominately through mis-selling where a person is somehow manipulated to get into the business in the first place. Lack of upfront transparency and too much focus on making Friday cheques gets networkers to do any kind of manipulation with new onboards.

    The other aspect is that most of the uplines get into a managerial behaviour. They call themselves active & working uplines but they end up spending most of their time harassing & forcing their downlines to commit suicidal actions to fulfil their own personal dreams.

    I agree that this is an unconventional business however feel that QNET should make efforts to inculcate a culture of value system too. Chief Pathman’s Wednesday messages are too agressive for an untrained mind to understand.

  • TCHEHOU Alain

    True VP, people sign up and after just two rejections they give up pretending that they can not make it, that it will take time to achieve success. And instead of focusing their efforts and as you said put in the right effort, they take two weeks off the business then return for one more week and so on. Today it is our responsibility while signing up someone to let them know the effort worth to build a lasting business. Thanks for the point

  • Rahil

  • Rahul kumar shah

    Yes it is very true but in my view people should have some expectations in the right sense from company and upline but wrong expectations is very dangerous.

  • T Sagar

    Correct. Wrong expectation is the first step of failure

  • Sumangala Suvarna

    Expectations always hurts..
    When I do the things in a right way automatically I will get the results.but my focus should be on 100% efforts…
    This Business is not a get rich quick scheme..
    I need to learn and earn…way to become an entrepreneur for me..

  • Nakalema

    This is very true. Its important that the biz gets its due respect. There is need to know and play by the rules. Its not a magic show.

  • Divyesh Sheth

    As the old saying goes ” No gain without lots n lots of pain”.
    Success is pure hard work, run for success & money is by-product of success it will touch your feet when you put in hard work, committment , dedication…

    Very true..
    People give up I’m my team when the don’t realize their wrong expectations.
    The refuse to empty their cups daily

  • Muhammad Adeel Swaleheen

    I my opinion, like any other business, this business doesn’t work if I don’t work. Rejection doesn’t matter in this business what does matter are our right efforts. It is simple but it’s not easy but we have to keep it simple. Unlike any traditional business, if we put right efforts, we will a lot for sure in short span of time. Let’s build to last…

    Actually I am not towards it’s big wealth in return , in fact I am looking for how genuinely I can creat it’s system so that the afterhand result should be worth having a great value in term . I am a beginner but very much struggling with rejections. But this rejections not going to make me step back , I will thrive to do my best and get the great potential which could help me to build my dream empire.

    Very true … Higher expectations and lack of effort to the reasons

  • Derek Okanya


  • Mohammed Salman

    That is just exactly what people do and think they can just get money within a shortest possible time without given themselves much understanding about what they are going in for.

  • Amir swain

    But some up lines are hiding the actual things to a fresher.they bring a new members into network marketing by motivating him that there is nothing to do in network marketing,just give few times as a side business.

    • Girish

      Very true.

    • ROHIT

      No every up line always tell u have to do all the things which is needed to do in a business. And everyone knows if one is doing business he has to do all those things which is needed to make that business successful and that is why only few people start the business. 😃😃

  • Saju M. Mathew

  • Vincent Kimuli

    For the few months I have been in the business, and what have gone through so far, it’s REAL business and requires more than just collecting money and join.
    Any way; does it mean that we need to inform the new entrants what really the concept is before signing them up?
