|Question: What are the qualifications for becoming Group Leader and what about the bonuses?
Answer: Effective retroactively to October 1st, 2003, the qualifications for GL are simply a minimum of 1000 SVP in your Personal
GL's now earn a straight 15% override on their entire group's CV (your Group is defined as your Personal Powerline plus all Offshoot Powerlines, down to the next GL).
The larger your organization grows, the bigger your commission check can be. Also, no longer are you penalized or held back
because of what other GL's are doing or not doing (which has been the case with the previous GL Pool).
Note that SFI is also instituting a "same-month" payment policy. That is, no longer must you wait one or more months to start getting paid as a GL. So long as you have 1000 SVP or more when commission checks are cut (example: You have 1157 SVP for October after refunds, etc. when commissions are processed on November 10th), you'll get paid the GL Leadership Bonus.
A. Some of you have secondary positions in your spouse's name or under a corporate tax ID number. SFI will allow these positions to be rolled into your Personal Powerline if you wish in order to meet the 1000 SVP qualification.
B. A method for tracking exact Personal Powerline SVP and Group SVP will be in place soon. You will be able to go in every day and see how much SVP you have in your organization so that you can gauge your various activities.
C. SVP for GL qualification may only include SVP from actual sales ("Action SVP" like free SVP awarded for actions like competing Smart Start, for example, are excluded).
D. Special incentives to upgrade to MIQ status quickly have been provided.
