“You can’t expect to build a 6-figure income with a skill set of a minimum wage worker.” — Dani Johnson

I love this statement. It is so true!

When I first started out in my direct-selling career I had the skill set of a minimum wage worker. And don’t get me wrong. I’m not knocking minimum wage workers. But you have to GROW in your skills if you expect to handle a 6-figure income business!

The #1 skill that will make or break you is this: TEACHABILITY

Leaders are learners! They never stop learning and developing their skills. They know that their income will never outpace their personal development!

Even if you all of a sudden got a landslide of money. It has been shown over and over again that people who have made a lot of money without the skills of how to handle that kind of money will lost it! Do you know how many football players, etc. have lost all their money and even committed bankruptcy??

Learn everything you can as fast as you can!

Go to every team meeting. Every training workshop. Every call. Commit yourself to being teachable!

Commit yourself to trying everything and failing forward! Be teachable!

Teachable people are:

  1. Humble — Get rid of your ego. Zip your mouth and follow directions.
  2. Resilient — They aren’t afraid to try and test things out and are OK if it didn’t work because they know they will learn from it and do better next time!
  3. Working — As in employed. Either by themselves or by somebody else. Listen, the marketplace pays for value and skill. Teachable people acquire both. Have you ever come across an unteachable co-worker or sales team member? You want to knock them in the head! And eventually, they find themselves un-employed or out of business.

Stay teachable! And learn as much as you can as fast as you can.

More skills = more money!
