Every newbie in this industry comes in with no clue what to do and how to achieve something, so first advice from Gloria is:

Listen to your Mentor!

Always take advice from people you are willing to exchange places with. Do not listen to people you not willing to exchange places with.

Work the Numbers

Work the Numbers! – Don’t care whether people say yes or no, just care how many people you ask. When you ask you get answers and when you work with answers you get results. Don’t waste your time by celebrating each yes or being discouraged by no. Work for numbers!

Focus on small successes

Very important in this industry is how to build your belief. People around you keep saying: “If you believe in it, you can achieve it.” But how to get to that point? Gloria’s advice is to focus on small successes. Focus on what I can accomplish right now. Because a good week after week turns into a good month. Good month after month turns into a phenomenal year. Build your belief one step at the time. You will be surprised how quickly you claim the letter of success.


If you agree with million dollar earner Gloria Mayfield Banks than it is time to go for small success.
