How can you build a progressive company culture as an MLM Company? Where do you find guidelines for inspirational personal qualities?

A good source for such attitudes and behaviors is the Scout Law.

What is the Scout Law?

The Boy Scout Law or Promise says that a scout must be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

The Scout Law relevance for MLM

This law expresses behavioral principles for an organization, company, or assembly. The personal qualities it expresses can serve as the foundation on which to build a positive business culture.

As a Scoutmaster myself, I can relate how the Scout law can guide the business practices you develop and build into your company culture.

Peruse the Scout culture I describe in the video below and how they can inspire the attitudes and behaviors that MLM companies should nurture in their business relationships with distributors and customers.

The Scout Law attributes


A business relationship must be based on mutual trust. Make sure there is a mutual level of trust that extends to the relationship with distributors and customers.


This attribute resembles trust. The partners in any business relationship must recognize the concept of shared loyalty. This requires a preparedness to honor an unspoken “I owe you, and you owe me” principle.


This goes hand-in-hand with loyalty. Break it and you create distrust. When speaking with somebody for the first time, be friendly, and put on a smile. Science tells us that it takes more muscle power to frown than it does to smile. If you will involve yourself in network marketing, make sure you’re in it because you want to help other people.


The media today pays more attention to negativity because it’s an easier sell than kindness. It’s also easy to fall into the trap of negative reactions. You will feel better when you are courteous and kind. Your business, distributors, and customer will benefit. It is important to remember this when you are having a bad day.


This is a simple principle. “Did I do what I said I would do?”


This goes with courtesy. Put a smile on your face. Ask somebody how their day’s going. Focus on other people, not on yourself.


Thriftiness relates to your ability and willingness to make use of the resources you have available to you. Most companies have limited resources, so being able to stretch what you have gives you the ability to do more without additional costs.


Be brave! In a world so full of negative influences, it takes courage to stand as a positive and creative individual. However, act in accordance with the principles outlined above and the benefactor will be you and your business venture.

If you find value in this, share it with others. Always feel free to contact us to discuss these concepts and their relevance to your business.
