Defining It

Lead – To show the way to by going in advance. To guide or direct in a course.

Leader – Somebody who guides or directs others. Someone who is responsible for or in control of a group, organization, country, etc.

Leadership – Capacity or ability to lead. The ability to guide, direct, or influence people.

Lead comes from the Old English word meaning “to travel.” Leader, also from Old English, means “one who leads,” in other words, the one who guides or leads the travel. If you consider your business as a journey to success, who do you want to guide your journey?

Why Is It Important?

There are certain things that have to be done or need to be done. It is generally up to the leader to make sure that these things get done.

In network marketing, leaders lead by doing what needs to be done. They make the phone calls, recruit, sell product, send out the emails, train, motivate, set goals and targets; in short, they guide the course of their team or group.

If you’re unwilling to make phone calls, or hand out videos, or send out emails; what are the chances of anyone on your team doing so? Slim and none would be my first two answers.
