get on another team!!!  or learn to market yourself and run with the pack.... if you know how to market, you won't need to be on a team unless the team leader is marketing you and keeping your listing shelves stocked!!!

You need to do your own marketing and lead generation - there is noting wrong with you briniging in your own leads.

We all have to give a little to get in this business

Lead generation (we called it prospecting) is the single most important part of your job.  Don't depend on your team leader to feed you or you will fail.

Ultimately you are responsible for yourself, so start marketing.  I think the whole team should be marketing, not just a leader.

Part of being a TEAM is doing what is needed to make the team strong.

Only EMPLOYEES stand around and wait for someone else to give them something to do.

What's in your contract? I would for myself but I bet you are going to find out it's tougher than it seems.

Z will always sell you their extra leads & then you'll be broke too.

In fact, the main job for team leader is to 'feed' leads to team members - if you are sharing a part of your compensation with the team leader....

Talk to the team leader about the lack of leads.  If  he or she doesn't have a plan to change the situation, consider finding a new team or going it on your own.

I would talk to your team leader about this and see what it means for you to bring in your own leads.  If you are paying for the ads yourself, it would be a punch in the gut to find out that you still have to share whatever comes in with them.  At that point, see if you can get them to reimburse whatever percent they are taking from you.

If a team leader you belong to is not providing useful leads,  I will consider strike on my own. If you have not signed a contract don't walk, run....
