Just Starting Out? Learn How To Command Authority Like The Pros

If you’re a brand new representative in a home business with limited to no experience, can you command a level of authority or expertise?

This question was presented to me and in a nutshell I said….You can command authority.

It’s a teachable skill that you can easily learn!

However there’s one key factor that I discussed as I answered this question in the training audio/video below.

There’s a belief among new network marketing representatives that because they’re new to a company it will be an uphill battle to instill in people a level of expertise on their part.

First off, there’s a running mental script that says you have to convince people that what you have they need.

What happens?

Off they go pouncing on people when the reality is that, if you market properly, position your product in the correct marketplace, then there’s a likelihood your position, as a leader in the market place, will shift and you can become the attractor.

There’s skill and learning involved.

Listen to this training where I address how you CAN convey this type of leadership skill (as a newbie) when you’re just starting out in a new business venture.


Be sure to share this training with your team.

And as always I’d love to hear from you, so please leave a comment below.

  1. Wonderful information Miriam – even if I’m not actually “selling” a product online I can totally understand about authority.

    Yes we all do have leadership skills – it does come easier for some then others. Words contain power and authority. It’s all how we say things in life. Being specific, expert and clear is vital in this.

    It’s all in the details – being expert in what you are doing and what you are offering – so true Miriam.

    You raise some terrific points my friend – being present.

    In gratitude,

    Being present and knowing that what you have to offer will be of value to the other person… Being that person who has that ‘authority’ or feels that way can take some time to develop.. Some people have it to begin with, even before they adventure into a ‘business’ others have to work on those skills. Very wise words you speak Miriam!!

  3. Aloha Miriam!

    Yes, I totally agree with you! And the biggest challenge is an internal one, it’s not even in the amount of knowledge.

    When I just started back in 1995, I imagined my mentor (tiny image) being on my right shoulder as I talked to people on the phone. It gave me the confidence cause I knew he was always there to help me. Even if I didn’t know they answer I knew he did! I’ve always worked with a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) and then it’s very easy to command authority cause it’s about the Team, not just myself.

    I love the team concept just like we do in our mastermind tribe group. Then it’s easy to sound like a pro cause we always have a team of pros with us…

    You have such wisdom Miriam! Thank you for always sharing with the world!

    Much love & gratitude,
    Kellie :)

  4. It really IS all about the words you use and your POSITIONING.

    If you SEE yourself as a leader, if you’ve taken the time to thoroughly familiarize yourself with your business/topic so that you can speak about it with confidence and clarity, THEN you will be perceived as an authority or an expert.

    And this will happen regardless of whether you have a huge team or are just starting out.

    Know your stuff, present it clearly, and you ARE a leader.

    Great distinctions as usual, Miriam.
