Act Like an Anchovie

Article by: Bryan Thayer
October 6, 2011


It’s a great outlook to have in business. Being a fearless mentor is a way to guarantee that your business will perpetuate.

When a school of anchovies senses danger, it swims together in a tight ball, with the fish on the inside more protected and those on the outside facing greater chances of being consumed.

MLM Mentors are the same. They care about the good of the organization more than they care about their own payoff. A true mentor has a sincere interest in someone else’s growth.

The fact is, somebody—probably more than one somebody—has mentored you. They taught you things. Went to bat for you. Trusted you with something important. Took the fall if it went wrong; gave you the credit if it went right. Who was it? What did you learn from them? Why was the experience good for you?

Teaching others what you know does good things for business and society as a whole. Being a mentor to your MLM downline requires interest, commitment, and confidence in your own abilities and willingness to protect, trust, and share with those who are up and coming.

Good things happen when the experienced strengthen the untried.
