How are your going to speak in your own voice and stand out in a sales business where they tell you to duplicate everyone else?
How will you ever stand out if you say, write and do the same things as everyone else? And no, louder doesn’t work.
STEP 4: Speak in Your Own Voice
One: Ignore everybody for a while. How else can you learn to speak in your own voice?
Two: Go inside and figure out what your voice is, your angle, your style, your little brazenness and weirdness and how you can apply it to your marketing style.
You must find a way to stand out if you want to be noticed, loved and followed.
“Be a small, ridiculously evolved, very rare and weird fish in a great big pond…Because the Internet is really big, and because you chose a gigantic pond, there will be a fair number of people interested in your topic who also resonate with your particular brand of weirdness.

P.S. In my experience over the last 20+ years, I’d say we, the women who comprise 80% of the MLM distributor force, have tried hardest to be what we (many of us) think we are supposed to be.
We emulate the men on stage
We try to be like little doctors
We try to be what we think is a good sales person, and parrot the company line about how great the management is, how great the product is, blah blah.
And when that doesn’t work, we go into denial. “Is this sales?” “Oh no! We share!” Or we do catalog sales – we help others – anything but the dreaded “I sell stuff.”
How about we back away, ignore everybody for a while, and learn to speak in our own voice?
One way to start is to find your product hot button. More on that in STEP 5. Your own voice is more than your style as it relates to the products you market. It’s that special part of you which exists with or without the business.
