While building a large downline is one of the keys to MLM success (hence the name "multi-level"), however, this is still a sorting business.
One of the benefits of owning your own business (which in MLM you do own your own business) is that you can choose who you work with. If someone's goals and vision don't match yours, you do not have to work with them. If you're looking to build a team of leaders, you get to hand-pick each and every person who joins your team.
Don't be led into believing that there is scarcity in this business, that there aren't enough new distributors to join your team and that they all might go somewhere else. There are plenty of potential new distributors. And anyway, do you really want to sign somebody up who is just going to be unhappy (with the product or company or you)? You're better off "sorting" through the rocks to find your diamonds!
