How To Achieve Your Long Term Goals Faster

So you have goals, big goals for your business, right? Does it feel like it is taking forever to get there? Do you constantly wonder how can you get there faster?

What will it take to reach your long term goals faster_ (1)

I know many of you in a home business have goals to get to $10,000 a month with your business or even $100,000 a month right? Some pretty extreme goals. And that’s all well and good , but many times you are setting yourself up for failure by thinking too far ahead. Too big too fast.

You can set yourself up for success by setting some short term goals first. Like I have said before, it is called building a business for a reason. We build piece by piece, one person at a time. So what do I mean when I say to build short term goals first?  In order for you to create long term results in your business, you have to set short term attainable goals that you take step by step, one day at a time. This will eventually get you to those long term goals. This was maybe not the answer you were wanting, but it’s the absolute truth.

Let me explain. OK, so for example you have joined this company, whatever home business it is, and you have business expenses right? Because any real business owner has business expenses. This could be your monthly auto-ship, or maybe you want to place a couple small ads a month; maybe you want to get some business cards. Whatever it is,  you are going to have some business expenses. Your very first goal needs to be to make enough to cover your expenses. That’s probably a couple hundred a month. That should be your very first goal, to break even. That way anything else is pure profit.

Your next short term goal could be this. How much money do I need to make every single month to be able to replace my job? You have to decide what that number is. So let’s say that number is $2000 a month. In order for you to leave your job, maybe you need to replace that income. So that would be your next short term goal. To get to the point to where you can leave that job. Or maybe you are already a stay at home mom and you need an extra $500 a month just to take the pressure off your husband, then that needs to be your goal, getting to that $500 plus business expenses a month. What you need to figure out is what that number is for you and then start there.

Your next goal might be something like this. What do I need to make each month to pay for all my household expenses and retire my spouse as well as myself? That is the number that will be the real start of time and money freedom for you. Maybe its $5000. Maybe $5000 a month would bring both you and your spouse home from a job. That’s your 3rd short term goal.

Maybe your next goal is to vacation or give to charity or to be able to save quickly and buy a new car with cash. To be able to do all those things you might need $8000 a month? It will vary depending on your family’s need and goals. Whatever this number is, that’s your freedom number. The number that will truly retire you both, let you vacation when and where you want, buy things you want without going into debt, paying off debt, giving to charitable organizations, whatever real freedom looks like to you. This is your freedom number.

But you have to hit those smaller short term goals, before you can begin to hit the bigger ones.  These short term goals will lead into the long term vision you have if you focus, stay consistent, follow directions and set short term attainable goals as well as the long term ones.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you build a house? One brick at a time. Goal setting is highly important for your business. If you aim at nothing, you are sure to hit it right? So aim at something! But make sure you set short term goals first along with the long term. It’s OK to dream big!  So dream big and plan big, but be sure to give yourself some grace, set small specific goals and celebrate when you hit each one. You will soon start to see more successes and you will be able to go farther than you ever imagined possible!

If you got value from this post, and you want to learn how to produce better results, set better goals and generate leads in your business in the new year, I will be doing a 5 day Facebook Lead Generation Challenge Group starting on January 8th. It is completely free for home business owners from any network marketing company. I would love to have you join us here.

3 Income Producing Activities That Every Network Marketer Needs to Do

We can get so caught up in time wasters and don’t do the things that grow the business. I have been so guilty of this. Can anyone else relate?

If this is you, please comment below so I know I am not the only one who does this. Whether it’s scrolling Facebook or watching TV or whatever it is that takes away from your business, if we aren’t doing income producing activities, our businesses will not grow in 2018. Most likely they will die in 2018 if we do not take all out massive action!

Most network marketers start a new business with no game plan. Most just follow what their company tells them to do. Make a list of 100 family and friends, call everyone you know, post it on your social media, do home parties and invite everyone you know, buy leads and call them, and other things that aren’t very effective and won’t really grow your business long term.  You might make some sales here and there and it might work for some people, but for most, they end up quitting out of frustration. Has that been you before? It has definitely been me many times.

So, how can we get long term results in our business and keep it growing month after month without feeling like we are pushing a product on people and without getting discouraged and giving up? The answer is daily income producing activities. You need a road map for your first 90 days of 2018. Do you have a plan in place? Are your goals set? If not, use the next week to get specific and write them down. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. And a man without a vision will perish. Set your goals for your business and then do these income producing activities every day.

1. Figure out your target market and where to find them. You have to know who you want on your team. It is not everyone, not everyone will be qualified to work with you. Is it work at home moms or professional business people? or is it people who need to lose weight or get healthier?  You have to discover your target market and decide who you want to promote your business to and then figure out where you want to find them. Do you want to find them by doing Facebook Lives, maybe marketing on Twitter, maybe you want to blog? Whatever it is, decide who and where and then go for it with everything you have.

2. Run an ad to that target market. It doesn’t have to cost a lot. Maybe $15-$30. You can do a Facebook ad or Linked In or Twitter ad. And you can choose who you want to see the ad. There are options to pick demographics, and whether you want to promote to male or female or both. You can also choose if you want to find people based on specific interests such as moms in stay at home mom groups, or people already in entrepreneur groups, or maybe you are in health and wellness, you can specify in your ad that you want to focus on people in weight loss groups, or holistic groups, or whatever it is that is your niche market.

3. Start conversations on Facebook Messenger every day with 10 people. This could be new friends that have added you on Facebook, it could be people you know well. Either way, just connect in a friendly way with 10 every day. That will make a difference in how much interest you gain in your business. Now, don’t contact them with the intention of prospecting them immediately, don’t go in with a sales pitch, remember it is about building relationships and finding a real need. After a couple conversations you will likely know if what you have is what they need. At that point, you can see if they are open to hearing more about what you do.

Those are my 3 tips for you today. If those were helpful, I would love to give you a free PDF download that I created this week that will help you stay focused in the new year. It’s called Income Producing Activity To-Do list for the Network Marketing Professional. You can get that here.  It’s completely free. My gift to you.

Also, starting January 8th we are having a 5 day Facebook Social Media Lead Generation challenge group starting Monday and running through Friday. For those of you in business or those of you wanting to start a business, you are welcome to join us for free. It is not company specific and it is not a place for promoting your business, but it is a place for learning how to grow your business in 2018 regardless of what business you are in. If you want to join our group, sign up here. 

With hard work, dedication and consistency, 2018 can and will be your best year yet in business. Here’s to you!

To your success,

5 Tips for Growing Your Network Marketing Business Online

With all the clutter and congestion out there on the World Wide Web, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and frustrated when growing your business. We all want a easy, quick, profitable business but most of the time that is not how it works. Most of the time, it takes a lot of work, hard work. Not only hard work, but consistency and perseverance in the midst of what feels like defeat. It may take work, but it is so worth it if you don’t quit.

Today, I wanted to give you just a few tips that have helped me while growing my network marketing business online. This comes from experience, failure, and learning along the way for me. Here are 5 things that are important when building your business online.

1.Don’t lie. Don’t lie to yourself or others. If you are brand new don’t be afraid to say that. If you have failed in business a bunch of times, don’t be afraid to say it. Document your journey as you go. People want to see you grow and want to know your successes and failures along the way. Your story will help you grow your business. Share your vision share your goals. But don’t fake it till you make it.

2.Figure out your budget. When you are broke and just starting out, it’s a little difficult to have any advertising budget and you can do a lot of things for free, but having a budget set aside each month is vital. My advice is to give up the Starbucks a couple times a week or stop eating out or find things you are buying that you don’t really need. You have to decide if your business is worth it to sacrifice other things. It can be $20 a month, or $100 a month starting out. This could be for FB ads, or other types of ads or your monthly autoship to qualify for commission in whatever business you are in. You need to have this budget set for these things.. You can do it. It’s about priorities. Is growing your business a priority more so than Starbucks or eating at Applebees every week or whatever it is? You have to invest into your business. Look at it as an investment. Set your budget. You can start small, but start somewhere.

3.Personal Development. Listen to free training. This is highly important. Most of us have this taught to us when we are young that we have to work and trade time for wages. You go to school, get a good job, and work 30-40 years and retire with barely enough to survive. That’s the American dream? There is a better way. Building a business will still take work, it will still be hard, but it’s so much better than working for someone else on their time. Time and Money freedom is possible but you have to change what’s between your ears before you will ever have enough belief to go after it. Free training is all over the internet. There are tons of YouTube videos and free training programs. is an amazing place to start for free mindset training to shift you into an entrepreneur mindset. We have been using Dani Johnson training for a few years and it has completely changed how we think about business. Personal development is vital. That really needs to be number one in your business.

4.Use free platforms that help automate your business. This could be,,, or other similar websites. Start researching all the ways to automate your social media posts. There are so many free options that can really help save time in your business. Post valuable info on all social media sites, do FB Live videos like this one, post videos on Youtube, post in forums. There are many options for free online. Use them to grow your lead base.

5. Stop trying to learn everything at once. Find one or two ways you want to grow your business and master those ways. If you focus on too much at one time you will be much more likely to get frustrated and quit. You don’t have to become an overnight pro at every platform out there. Find one or two and master it. Whether that is focusing on FB lives and learning how to do them well and gain an audience, or growing your Twitter or Instagram following. Whatever it is, only do a couple at a time, and master them before going on to the next thing. Ask yourself questions such as what you’re good at, how do you want your business presented? Do you want to do videos? Do you want to write blog posts? What is it you want to learn to do and master? Only you can decide that.Decide and go at it with everything you have.

So, those are my 5 tips. I hope you got some value out of this. If you did, I also want to invite you to a free 5 day Facebook Challenge group that will be starting on January 8th. It is called the 2018 Facebook and Twitter Prospecting Challenge. Each day I will go live in this group and teach one way to prospect on FB and Twitter that will generate leads. I also plan to do some Linked In and YouTube training in the group as well. If you want to join our group and start your 2018 with a strong base to grow your business, simply go here to sign up.

2018 will be my best year yet in business. Will it be yours? It’s your choice. I hope you decide to make it your best year.

How Important is Facebook Live to Your Network Marketing Business?

Facebook Lives are the big thing right now. From oyster parties, to unboxings of products, to news, to training, to pet videos, and everything else, people are going live on FB every day. But what does that mean for your network marketing business and should you be going Live on FB?

The answer is….ABSOLUTELY! Facebook Live is a great way to get engagement and build an audience. Did you know that Facebook loves when people go live and will generously allow it to get more organic traffic for free? Facebook Lives are a great way to drive traffic to your business page, your product or service, or your blog.

When you decide to start going live on Facebook, there are a few steps you want to take. Prior to starting, go to settings in Facebook to make sure video upload is enabled as well HD feature enabled. There are also a few key points to be aware of:

  1. Always introduce yourself and what the purpose of your video is going to be. Make sure whatever you are talking about is of value to the user, not a sales pitch.
  2. Ask a question. Always begin your FB Live videos with an introduction, purpose of video and then ask a question. It increases curiosity and engagement. For example, if your purpose is to help people learn how to generate leads online, you could ask something like “Are you struggling to generate leads online?” or “Do you need more leads for your network marketing business?”
  3. Always engage the audience by asking them to say something in the comments, and ask them to share the video and always acknowledge your viewers when they comment.
  4. ALWAYS have a Call To Action at the end. You could ask people to message you if they want more tips, or if you have a website or blog, you can always point them there to do a specific activity. But always have something for them to do at the end.
  5. Be yourself. Do not try to impress people. They can spot a fake a mile away. Be genuine and give value.
  6. Remember your replay viewers. There are going to be a lot of people who watch the video after the live is over. Make sure you acknowledge and appreciate them too.
  7. Be consistent with your FB Lives. Once you have determined the best time and best days of the week for your FB Lives, let your audience know your schedule each day and ask them to add it to their calender so they don’t miss anything.

I hope this was helpful. If you would like some free training that goes into greater depth on how to do FB Lives effectively and successfully, you can get that training here.

The Procrastination Killer for Network Marketers

Are you like me and struggle with procrastination in your business? Maybe, like me, you have been known to do the activities you enjoy and put off the activities that aren’t as fun, even if they are money makers? Things such as making phone calls to prospects? Or following up to messages from prospects? Those are not the fun part of running a home business, but they are vital to your success.

So how do you fight the urge to procrastinate? How do you get past the struggle of not wanting to do the boring or sometimes scary things? You take action. Action is the procrastination killer. Action is the only thing that will get the job done, take away the fear and completely annihilate the procrastination. Action.

Maybe you are asking how to do that. Or maybe your saying things like it’s easier said than done. or that’s easy for her to say. Maybe all of these thoughts are running through your head as you read this. But the fact is, I am writing from experience. I am writing from a place of disappointment in myself. However, the difference in success and failure is whether you are willing to stand back up, dust yourself off, and try again.

That’s what I do every time. I get back up. A successful business is not all success, there are more failures than successes. Failure is what helps us grow and what shows us what not to do the next time. Failure is a vital key to success. I have failed many, many times, so therefore, I am qualified to succeed and to teach others how to succeed. And if you have failed in business before, so are you!

it's hard to beat a person who never gives up. (1)

So how do we succeed? By never giving up and never giving in to defeat, but most of all by taking ACTION. Call the leads, message the prospects, place the ads, write the blog posts, add the FB content, whatever you aren’t doing, just do it. And do it today. The best way to kill procrastination is to act and act quickly before you talk yourself out of it.

Time Management is the step to action. Setting a schedule is important, following the schedule is even more important. If you put on the schedule that you are going to make calls to your prospects from 10am-11am every day, don’t make excuses to wait. I know you do it because I have done it and still do it sometimes. Making calls is the most non-fun part of a network marketing business, but we know the fortune is in the followup. What happens if we don’t follow up? We lose the fortune. So, my question to you is this. How badly do you want the fortune? Do you want it bad enough to kill procrastination and take massive action?

Personal Development on a daily basis is also a step toward action. Mindset is crucial to your success. Negativity breeds negativity. Negative self talk such as “it probably won’t work anyway” or “I’m just not a good salesperson” is a business killer. Doubt and fear are a huge cause of procrastination. Personal Development kills fear and doubt and builds confidence and belief. Listen or read daily to really start making that mindset shift that is vital to your business and will help you kill procrastination and take action. My favorite is Dani Johnson. You can take a free 30 day bootcamp here.

Whatever you do, don’t let this thing called procrastination kill your business and kill your dreams. We are almost into a new year. Will your 2018 be better than your 2017? It’s up to you. Take action friends!
