Who You Become On The Way To Success

Is it really true that who you become on the way to success is more important than the money you make? Actually, yes, very true. I used to think this was crazy. I just wanted to make money in business and have that time and money freedom. I thought it was silly to think me changing would change my successes.

Who you become on the way to success really is more important than the money you make. Now, you may disagree. And that’s OK because so did I.

But something I’ve come to realize and believe is that real success in life requires a mindset shift. If we truly want things to change, we have to change. And change is a choice. We can choose to complain, blame, gossip, judge and control. We can also choose to love and accept instead.

Industry trainer, and one of my business mentors over the last 9 years,  Dani Johnson says Income Follows Your Personal Growth. And for years I had heard her say that, but I am not sure if I believed it. I didn’t really work on me as much as I should have. Honestly I didn’t really want to work on me. I continued to judge, blame, gossip, try to control, and much more. And I was darn comfortable there in that place. Now, I am not saying I never do those things now, I am just saying I am a work in progress and as I change, so do my successes in life and business.

I am learning to be a better version of me. I am learning that a comfort zone is a dead zone. I am learning to love and accept others as they are and I am working on me every day. It really is life changing.  I have new goals, new dreams and new vision.

I have more hope, peace, love and joy. And it’s because I decided to take personal responsibility for where my life has been in the past and where I want it to go. Those are all choices we make.

It took me a long time to realize this. And to really start working on me. Success isn’t what you do or what you get, it’s who you become.

The late great Jim Rohn said this. “If you want to have more, you have to become more. Success is not something you pursue. What you pursue will elude you. Success is something you attract by the person you become. For things to improve, you have to improve. For things to get better, you have to get better. For things to change, you have to change. When you change, everything changes for you.”

So, my advice is to work on you. Working on me has been more rewarding than the business success. I am more confident, more compassionate, more sincere, and growing into the best version of me. I am not where I want to be yet, but I am so much closer than I was a year ago, even yesterday. I’m becoming more than what I was. So can you!

Work harder on yourself than you do your business and you will be unusually successful in all things.

To your success,

Why You Need to Believe in Your Product or Service

Why is it important to love your product or service? 

If you are in network marketing already and have your own business, I have a couple questions for you. 

Do you love what you promote? Do you believe in it? Do you have a passion for it? And are you using it daily?

These are important questions to ask yourself. There were a couple different companies in my 9 years in Network Marketing that I did not really care for their product or service. I felt like either it didn’t work or was not a good buy for the money. Now, how in the world was I supposed to get anyone else to buy anything if I did not believe in it myself. That’s huge. I just gave you a huge nugget for your business. I did not believe in my product or service and it showed up in my sales. I bet it does your too, either your belief or unbelief is showing up in your sales.

Do you believe in what you are promoting and do you love it? I sure hope so. I hope you are in a company that you can believe in, that you are proud of, that you can stand behind, and that you use the products daily. Or if you offer a service, not a product, I hope you use that service yourself. Because if you don’t it will show up in your business.

I am in health and wellness, and I totally believe in our products and I use them every single day. That’s important if you want to be sincere and really help people and work with integrity. If you don’t believe in it, and if you don’t love it or use it, that will eventually effect your business. People will eventually be able to tell. Your business will suffer.

The other businesses that I was in that I didn’t believe in or love the product, wasn’t because the products were bad, it’s because I didn’t really try. I just wanted to make money. In my mind, it was not about the service or the product I was offering, it was just about making sales. Maybe that is where you are. Maybe you think you using the product or service you are promoting is not important, but it is so very important.

Belief affects our success. Not only belief in yourself, which is the biggest thing, and not only belief that the business model works, but you have to believe in what you are selling to be truly successful. You cannot truly speak with passion about it if you don’t love it or use it. Passion is what people buy much of the time. They hear about your love for it and it closes them on buying it. You cannot speak with boldness and strong posture if you don’t believe in it.

So you need to learn all you can about that product or service you are selling and find out why you should love it. Start using it as well. That’s the best way to find out if it is worthy of your love and belief. . And then, maybe you will fall in love with it and be more passionate about it. That’s when the magic will start to happen.

If you are not in a company and you are thinking about starting your own business, I would love to share with you what I do, because I fully believe in and love my products and my company. And I can say to you with boldness and passion that it is an amazing place to be. So if you’re in a network marketing company already, I suggest learning to love your products or service, if you can’t, maybe you need to be somewhere else. If you aren’t already in a business, make sure you choose something you can love and stand behind.

To your success,

How to Avoid Distractions in Your Home Business

Do you get distracted easily in your home business and not get everything done that you intended to?

There are income producing activities and then there are distractions. Sometimes, you think you are running your business, but in reality you are letting distractions keep you from making money.

Most people, especially when they are new, have a job and have to work their business on the side in their spare time. So if that’s you, you need to make sure that the time you have to run your business is laser focused.

You need to be doing income producing activities and sometimes you have to ask yourself if the activity you are doing is going to grow your business and make sales for your business. If the answer is no, or I’m not sure, then most likely it is just a distraction.

Things such as scrolling Facebook constantly, that’s a distraction. Now, can you grow your business using Facebook? Yes. But scrolling and watching cute videos and reading how someone’s day went is not going to grow your business.

Something else we do is let other things get in the way of running our business, which are excuses. We say things like, “well I just don’t have the time because I have to get home and make dinner and bath the kids and feed the dogs and put up laundry“. Whatever the excuse may be. We all have made them. I’m not saying neglect those things. I’m saying that if you want your business to succeed you have to not let those things take away from your business time.

So if you can only work your business one hour a day, that hour needs to be laser focused on your business, with a plan of action and a schedule for each thing. Your family needs to know your schedule so they can work around it as well, and you need to stop letting distractions keep you from making money.

My advice is to get a planner and schedule your time. Schedule activities within that time frame that are income producing activities, and use that scheduled time to be laser focused on your business. You will thank yourself later when you are able to leave that full time job like I did. It’s a very freeing feeling.

To your success,

How to Get Your New Distributor Started Right

OK, so maybe you are excited because you signed up your first distributor into your home business.

You made a little commission.

You got their order placed and everything is all good, right?  But what’s next?

Where do you go from there?  How do you set them up for the best possible chance at success? Because that’s what you want right? Them to succeed which helps you to succeed. Watch this video for tips on how to get your new person started the right way!

Most network marketers have no idea how to bring new people into the business properly. Most network marketers have no clue on how to start someone off with the right steps. And many times because you don’t know what to do, you either give them a huge list of things to do which overwhelms them, or you give them no steps to take at all, which confuses them.

Both ways usually end with the new distributor fizzling out quickly.

I was reading Go Pro by Eric Worre again this morning as I was doing my Miracle Morning routine, and

Chapter 9 he talks about this very thing, how to get your new distributor started right. I have read this book before, but these never really hit me until this morning.

Funny how that happens, huh? We read something and it doesn’t stick the first time. And when we read it the next time, it’s mind blowing. That’s why it’s so important to listen to personal development and read personal development books over and over. Our brains can’t catch it all at once.

So, anyway back to the book. Chapter 9 is about the “Game Plan Interview”. The Game Plan Interview is something Eric learned from a mentor in the industry and he implemented it into his network marketing company. And guess what? It worked.

So I want to briefly give you some points from this chapter and my take on it.

Game Plan Interview Part One:

  • Validate their decision to become a distributor by saying congratulations! I agree that this is huge. People need to hear approval and they need to know others are excited for them. Making someone else feel good for the decision they just made garners you credibility. They trust you more now. Always validate your new distributor’s decision to take charge and stepping up.

 Game Plan Interview Part Two:

  • Set their expectations. YES! Most people come in with unrealistic expectations. So make sure they know their success is dependent on their work ethic and their willingness to do what they need to do and follow directions. Make sure they know up front that it is not your job to make them successful. Their success or failure is their choice. They need to own that. Let them know you will be there to guide them, but never to do it for them.
  • Promote Independence. Let your new distributor know that you are there to help in the beginning and there as a guide and resource from then on, but the goal is to get them doing the work without you. You may need to do a few 3 way calls, or teach at their first party, but after that, they have to be willing to step up and be the leader of their own business.
  • Be Up Front About Their Excuses and Doubts. Every network marketer goes through times of doubt and fear. Many get stuck over the fear of rejection. Many get stuck on excuses as to why they can’t do what they need to do. Make it clear up front that these things happen to all of us at one time or another. Make sure they know there will be ups and downs and then ask them if they give you permission to hold them accountable. Ask them if when the doubts and fears start coming in and they are making excuses as to why it isn’t working, can you remind them of why they got started in the first place and hold them accountable.

Game Plan Interview Part Three:

  • Getting started checklist. Of course each company is different and different people choose to promote different ways, whether online or offline, by phone or by email. But depending on your company, create a checklist. The checklist should include being on the monthly autoship. This is important for any serious business builder to be using the products they are selling and committing to that monthly amount. If you are in a company that has samples, samples should be on the list for the new distributor to be handing out. Things such as how many hours they are willing to put into their business, company website info and login information, Facebook groups they can join, webinars coming up about your business, upcoming training events and seminars  needs to be on the checklist, comp plan overview, the invitation process, and other things that pertain to your specific company.

 These are all great steps to take with your new distributors as they come on board. It also needs to be the day they start if at all possible. I’ve done some of these things, but not all, but I am implementing the rest immediately for my new distributors. You should too.

To your success,

How to Prospect on Facebook the Right Way

Are you struggling to generate leads using Facebook and you are wondering why people are running the other direction?

Facebook is definitely the place to be if you are in business. 2.07 billion monthly active users is a huge number, right? However, there are some very good ways to prospect for your business on Facebook and some very wrong ways, both of which I have done, and both of which have very different results.

First of all, Facebook is not meant to be for posting your business on your profile; it’s actually against their terms and conditions. You are not supposed to use Facebook to advertise on your wall. That’s what business pages are for. Facebook is a social network platform right? Social, meaning where people get together and share ideas, stories and life, not an advertising platform. At least that was not how it was supposed to be.

However, now FB has become a never ending newsfeed of people pitching their product or service. This is called spamming and I was guilty for a long time as well, so don’t feel bad if that is you now.

Today I want to help you find a better way. A way to prospect on FB that actually attracts people to you instead of them ignoring your messages and unfollowing you or sometimes even unfriending you.

I finally figured out a better way, I found some great training, and I want to share what I have learned with you, because it has helped me so much. I want to pay that forward.

So, I have 4 tips here for prospecting on Facebook. 

1. So, first of all, don’t post things constantly about your product or service. It runs people off. It does. It comes off as salesy and spam and it turns people off to whatever you are doing. This is the exact opposite of what you want right?

So, the answer is to stop promoting your company all over social media, and learn how to brand yourself. Learn how the pros draw in people. Branding you, being yourself and letting others see that, that is what will draw them to you, not your product, service or opportunity. You can find free training on branding over at my WEBSITE.

2. OMG. A biggie for me. Don’t add people to groups, especially if it is sales promotion groups. That’s rude. People want to choose for themselves. It is OK to invite them, but never just add them. I get added to like 5 or 6 new groups a day, and do you know what I do? I immediately remove myself and then most of the time, I will unfollow the person who did it because it’s super annoying.

3. Follow people on Facebook. Find people who are business minded like you, they hang out on pages such as Dani Johnson, Chalene Johnson, Tony Robbins, Dave Ramsey, and others like them. Find people who look like they may be a good prospect and follow them. When you follow them, they get a notification, it makes them feel good and not only that, they get nosy and want to know who is following them. So if your profile isn’t full of sales pitches like we just talked about, then they may decide to friend request you. At that point, send them a message and start a conversation.

4. Next, it’s OK to friend request people who look like a good fit for what you are doing, but never send a friend request without following it up with a personal message. Network Marketing, or any type of business really, should be about relationship building. You build the relationship by sincerely getting to know someone and then, if you discover after having a real conversation that you may have what they need, then and only then, ask them if they are open. Don’t send them a link, don’t tell them why they need what you have, don’t pressure, just ask them if they are open to at least taking a look.

So, clean up your profile, then get out there and make some new contacts, start some conversations, and build some relationships. It takes the pressure off of you and them when you are just talking and seeing if they have a need for what you offer, instead of assuming they do and pushing it down their throat. Try it and see.

To your success,
