The Telltale Signs…

In much the same way that a doctor can examine a patient for symptoms of illness, you can do the same thing with companies and opportunities.

So what are the Telltale Signs of Weakness or Vitality:

Distributor Excitement Level

When things are really going well at a company, the distributor base is genuinely excited.  They don’t need to be rallied and pumped up.  They don’t need to be pushed and cajoled into attending events.  Everybody wants to go and be there because their daily experiences with the company support their excitement.

I remember years back when I was in one particular company that used to hold 4 Regional Conventions each year.   I don’t remember anyone ever having to do repeated call encouraging people to register and go.  As soon as it was announced, no matter what time of year, the registrations came flying in.

Each convention was attended by 10,000 to 15,000 people.  And as early as 6 am, the line was forming to get a good seat.  I remember that when they would open the doors to let people in, it would be a mad rush – with people literally climbing over walls and barricades to get the best view.  The company would film this and show it to us later.  Everyone would be screaming with excitement.

There was a genuine electricity from people excited about their opportunity.

If your company’s conventions are sparsely attended with barely a flicker of energy, that’s a sign…

Distributors Making Money

When a company is doing well – the distributors make money.  Plain and simple.  If the company’s products are what people are looking for, distributors make money.   If the opportunity is relevant, distributors make money.

And when distributors make money, the word gets out!

Distributors can keep a secret.  So if a company is doing well, you’ll hear about it in the form of the stories about how much money people are making.  Some will even be out showing checks – not supposed to, but doing it anyway!

This is one you can’t hide under a rock.  So if you’re not hearing any money stories, that’s usually a clear sign that nobody’s making any.  And nobody making any means products aren’t selling.   It also means people aren’t buying the opportunity in today’s economy and environment.

Leadership Turnover

When a company is rocking, people stay.  When it’s not, people leave.  That’s it, plain and simple.  Contrary to what company executives may want you to believe, TOP EARNERS DON’T JUST WALK AWAY FROM THEIR CHECKS!  If you see them running for the door, 9 times out of 10 it’s because they’ve seen something that’s telling them the party’s over.

So if you’ve got leaders who are still making big money today and that have been there for a while, that’s a great sign.  On the contrary, if your company has a revolving door of top leaders, that’s a WARNING!

These are just a few of the signs you can look for that’ll let you know if you’re in the right place.  There are more, like the company’s track record for delivering on promises, and other things that you can look for.

Measure your current company up against these telltale signs.  Most importantly, if you get warnings, don’t ignore them.  You’ll pay the price in lost time, lost earning potential, and missed opportunity.  And you can’t get those back!


I recently found a company where all the signs are pointing up.  25,000 people just attended the convention.  Over 100 NEW people recently made between $3,000 and $20,000 in their first month.  And multi-million dollar earners have been with the company for years.   To find out more about this company, go to
