I’m Mia Torr. My husband Andy and I are communicators by profession, and we started this site in 2012 to help entrepreneurs develop better relationships with clients, hone their communication skills, tell compelling stories, and focus their personal branding.
No doubt you’ve seen how an unprofessional sales pitch can drive away your customers and hurt your business. We’ve all felt what it’s like to be steamrolled by an annoying sales pitch. If you’re like me, you have sworn to never be That Person.
The Authentic Networker is your personal antidote to the slimy sales pitch. Find helpful resources, tools and tips for people (like you!) who want to build authentic relationships with your customers, clients, and prospects.
Once upon a time, Andy and I had a 2-year-old boy, an 8-week-old baby girl… and $8 in the bank. Despite years of hard work, we were suddenly stuck. And scared.
Have you ever been in that place? Where you know you need a change, but you don’t know exactly what to do next?
At the time, I couldn’t imagine returning to work and missing my children’s first years. But there had to be a better way than living paycheck to paycheck.
“Home business” was not even on my horizon. But when our friend Corrie shared her network marketing business with us, my husband knew it was the answer we were looking for.
I was the one who needed convincing. The first word out of my mouth was no. We couldn’t afford it. We didn’t have the time. And I didn’t know how to sell anything! I didn’t ever want to become that Icky Person who talked about products all the time.
Andy made a compelling case to me. I realized how much I really did want to own my work. And so, disorganized and exhausted, we agreed to say yes to starting a business.
I promised myself to learn everything I could. Maybe I didn’t have the right skills, but I began by approaching my business with the sincere intention to help other people, and over time we built a successful network of distributors and customers.
Along the way, we met a lot of people who needed help to decide whether network marketing was right for them. So I created a special workbook to help them answer their own key questions: Do I have the right skills and personality? Do I have the time and motivation? Do I understand how to choose the right company for me?
My workbook was so successful that I’ve decided to make it free for anyone to use. Just enter your email address and name in the box below, and you’ll gain instant access for FREE. It’s a fantastic self-assessment tool for people who are new to network marketing, and a great free resource for network marketers who are building their business.
If you want to build a home business with authenticity, you need to make two commitments. The first is to get honest with yourself, and take steps toward self-improvement. The second is to use your business to help others. If you decide network marketing is right for you, my hope for you is that you use it to make a positive change in your world.
