In today’s video, I discuss why it isn’t possible for every person to like you in network marketing. I’ll explain what you should focus on instead, and what to do about your haters.
Enjoy the video.
If you are interested in how to deal with people who don’t support you, check out my past video on the topic here.

In this episode, I am going to talk about how not everyone will like you in network marketing. I’m just going to explain that in this episode, because this should help if you’ve ever come across people not liking what you’re doing.
The reason I am doing this video is because I’ve noticed that a lot of people who get started with network marketing, affiliate marketing, top tier, direct sales, whatever you want to call it, and people have this need for acceptance. They want every body to like them, and they also want everybody to be on board with what they’re doing. I’m going to tell you that is just not the way it is. It’s not the way it should be either.
If you step out from the crowd and become a business owner of any sort, you’re basically deviating from the normal path.
Not everyone is going to like what you’re doing.
I recently did a video talking about how to deal with friends and family who don’t support you what you’re doing, which you can see here:
I do talk about what to do if your friends and family aren’t on board.
This is similar to that, as in, they probably won’t be on board with any business that you decide to start, because psychologically, when you step out from the crowd and do your own thing, it questions them internally why they aren’t stepping out.
It’s totally normal if they don’t support it.
Let’s say you’re building an email list as an example. Every leader I know, as well as myself, we obviously receive hate mail. When I send an email out, a lot of the time I’ll receive a few nice emails back, but occasionally, there will be some hate mail, usually from a sad, lonely person who I really feel sorry for. Normally, it’s in all capitals.
Now the reason I don’t care about that is because I care about the people I am serving. I care about the nice emails I get back saying they love the value that I provide, thank you for training me. That’s who I do it for.
I don’t do it for any kind of haters, and there aren’t even that many of them. It’s like, one out of 30,000. It’s very few.
The point is, if you’re going out there and building an audience, you’re going to get hate mail. All the top leaders I know in network marketing, affiliate marketing, they all have “haters.” That’s just how it goes.
Don’t worry about that. Don’t worry about not everyone liking you. Don’t worry about the “No’s.” Worry about the people who you want to serve, the people who do want to step on board with what you’re doing.
The thing you’ve got to understand is whenever you do anything meaningful with your life that’s different from the traditional 9-to-5, the whole point is not everyone will be on board. Everyone is on basically the same path, and you’re going off on a tangent. There will be people that pull you down. I would view it as a good thing. There’s a really amazing quote by Dan Kennedy, which is “If it gets to mid-day, and you haven’t irritated someone yet, you’re doing something wrong.”
This is an amazing quote because it really sums this up. Each day you want to be making a difference, and that means you’re going to be turning people off, but it doesn’t matter, because you’re also going to be getting people on with your vision and what you want to do.
