In math, an inflection point is a point on a curve that either turns up or down, and in business, a strategic inflection point is the place you point to evaluate your strategies on why your business has gone up or down.
In network marketing, there may be many strategic inflection points, going up, and down, if we don’t have a proper strategy in place. It may have been the proper system yesterday, or in months past, but that system may not work as well today.
It’s necessary for all of us to be willing to learn, and move with the signs of the times because the newest technologies coming out may change the course of our businesses.
This information generation is able to develop ideas, and turn them into technology and systems, so quickly that we have to constantly evaluate our strategic inflection point.
For this reason many top leaders in network marketing encourage you to test, tweak, and track your systems on a regular basis for maximum benefit. For those of us who don’t always know how to do this, we better learn quickly, or find someone who does. The technology train is moving, and it isn’t slowing down.
Even if most of your marketing is done offline, you can utilize what others are doing and create your own concepts and plans. That’s why it’s called networking. Building concept upon concept may also keep the energy flowing in your business.

Yesterday I had a consultation with a young lady who schooled me on developing my own report as a resource. She also encouraged me to streamline my focus, and then proceed in my business from there. (I won’t use her name because I haven’t asked her permission). Others are blogging, using mobile apps, and rolling several businesses into one marketing system for more profitable possibilities.
On a training call this morning, we learned how Jermaine Steele had taken the two words “inflection point,” plus another concept, to develop his own unique product to help others market their business.
