Mindset For Success in Network Marketing, MLM, Home Business

Mindset for Success in Network Marketing, MLM, Internet Marketing, and/or your Home-based Business

Your mindset is the most important aspect of your business
efforts because if you aren’t solid there, nothing else matters.

Focus leads to your success

It starts with being very clear on the reason WHY you are doing your business. This must be so compelling and powerful for you that it will see you through any and all obstacles. There is a great saying, “Your Why should make you cry.”

The next step is to get clear on your fears concerning your business. Most of us have them and the key to success isn’t so much in getting over the fear, but in having the courage to power through despite the fear.

Imagine the first time someone jumps out of an airplane; do you think there is fear?  Absolutely. But what gets the person to jump is the courage to do it, with faith that the experience will be great. You will have fears; especially in the beginning. Expect it and move through and beyond them. This simply takes courage!

Developing your skill set is the next piece in being prepared; this is a process and takes time. Most of us come from an employee background and have an employee mindset. That’s okay. It takes time to understand the mindset of a business owner; understanding the concept of not keeping all your profits to spend, but reinvesting a portion back into your business. A very important skill set is learning how to communicate with people; how to ask probing questions; how to be a great listener and problem solver; how to commit to doing tasks you may not enjoy. These are learned skills and so if you are struggling with them now, that’s okay.

Finally, become unstoppable in pursuit of your dreams! If anyone else has achieved success with your company or product, then you can, too. Yes, you can. Make the decision and go for it! No one else is responsible for your success or failure! Choose
which one you want to be known for!

Turning Your Dream Into A Dream Come True

Dream – Goal – Plan – Action = A dream comes true

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken
down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes
your dreams come true.
…By Greg S. Reid

Learning this four step process and consistently applying this technique will prove invaluable throughout your life.

What’s your dream? Start today!

The Importance Of Follow Up For Any Professional Or Business

The Importance Of Follow Up

One area where most new Network Marketing professionals or business owners
(existing or new) drop the ball is in follow up. This is critical to your short term
and long term success. Most of us never follow up. We assume that if someone
isn’t interested today…right now, they are never going to be.Nothing could be
further from the truth. Look at these statistics and you’ll quickly see the power in follow up.

  • 48% of sales people never follow up with the prospect
  • 25% of sales people make a second contact and then stop
  • Only 2% of sales are made on the first contact
  • 3% are made on the second contact
  • 10% of sales are made on the fourth contact
  • 80% of sales are made somewhere between the 5th and 12th contact.
Reach out frequently to your prospects

Seriously, 80% of sales occur between the 5th and 12th contact. Do you follow up with everyone at least 5 times? Will you commit to 12 times?

If you KNOW the statistics are stacked in your favor, what
would stop you from sending off a card to your former and potential business prospects or hostesses every 2 to 3 months? And, they don’t have to be prospecting cards. Just keep in touch and keep your name and business in their mind.

There are so many applications and services available to you today that can aid you in the setup and maintenance of  a follow-up plan that runs on autopilot; sending out your monthly, bimonthly or other scheduled communications to your prospective customers, team members and/or business affiliates.

If you don’t have a plan, or if you have a plan but not the system or services needed to be consistent, reach out to companies or organizations that may have the right solution for you.The importance of building that ever so important “know, like, and trust” with your prospects and future (and existing) customers cannot be overstated. Without those three key ingredients routinely addressed in your communications with others, your business will not grow to the extent you may want it to.

Not being consistent limits those top-of-mind opportunities that open doors for future business and relationship opportunities. Start TODAY!

Simple Tips to Use In Keeping Your Blog Fresh And Exciting

Keeping Your Blog Fresh And Exciting With Simple Tips

A lot of people today are very interested in the subject of blogging, but they aren’t sure what they should be doing to create and manage a well structured blog. If this is something that catches your interest then you should read further, as the following information can set you on the right path.

ID-10088195

Don’t go too broad with your posts. If you have different skills, try using them on a specific topic. Creating broad blog posts in an uncontrollable way can make your brand dissolve. Even if you have readers that are interested in various topics, you’re making it harder for people to recognize your single brand.

Ensure that the titles of your blog posts are very catchy. Imagine that you are someone who is just browsing the internet and you see your blog post among thousands of others. You should ensure that your blog headline sticks out from the rest.

If you are starting your own blog, you probably won’t have a multitude of readers and comments right away. You will have to search out people and show them you exist. Some ways to do this are with social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter. Use these sites to communicate with people, not just to post links.

Since blogs are written on a more personal level, you should avoid writing in formal tones. This will make it easier for the reader to relate to you on a personal level. This will keep your readers coming back later on to read more of the blogs you write.

Minimize the background “noise”. You want your readers to focus on your words and the point you are trying to make. If your background is not somewhat plain, you will draw the readers focus from your entries. Keep your background to a light or white color without images or other distractions.

If you plan to blog for the long haul, then invest in a domain name. It’s inexpensive and will make your blog look more professional. Using your business’s name or something related to it will make it easier for viewers to remember it.

Refrain from using blog designs that are extremely busy designs that have too much content on your screen, too many animated graphics, etc. Having these busy designs makes it extremely difficult for your readers to read your blog. As a result, they’ll likely leave.

Consider adding pictures or music to your blog. Stimulating their senses will create a fuller experience, and increase the pleasure of your visitors. Choose pictures and sounds that are relevant to the content of your blog. Before you chose anything, be certain that you are not in violation of any copyright laws.

Building an online presence via blogging is something that takes time, keep this in mind. Just remember that the sooner you start the sooner your potential to build an audience becomes. So do your best to apply all of the knowledge you learned and the audience you’ve been seeking should follow.

Success Comes By Helping Others

Success Comes By Helping Others

Most successful home business owners will agree on one thing…

“To reach true success, you need to help others to become successful.”

To many this seams a little strange. Conventional thought would have you think that to reach your financial goals, one must work on activities that benefit yourself. That you should only focus on your own needs and the activities that directly affect your pocketbook.

I guess this kind of thinking originates from the corporate world.team-smile

You see in the land of “Cubicles”, you rarely see the case where helping your co-workers benefits you. In fact it’s the usually the opposite. In that type of competitive environment where everyone is stepping over each other for promotions, competing for raises and generally hoping their co-workers might actually fail so opportunities will open up.

Many home based bushiness are completely different. In the case of a networking business you can ONLY be successful if you help others to have success. Wow what a novel concept!

Let me put it another way…

Many people would love to make a six figure plus a year income. That comes to at least $10,000 a month. In order to make 10K a month you need to help 4 or 5 people make $2,000 a month. See how that works? In many cases you take the number of people and times it by the amount they are making..

Kind of cool right?

So here are a few specific things you can do to help others to be successful in a networking business an help others.

1. You can’t do it for them

No matter how hard you try, you won’t ever be able to make people take action. You won’t be able to do it for them so don’t even try. Sometimes you want others to be more successful more than they want it for themselves. Don’t try to force people or do work for them…it will never happen.

2. Don’t motivate people, instead inspire them

Motivation is an interesting thing. Many people think that you can say or do things that will get someone up off their rear ends and get to work. This is just not the case. You might be able to motivate someone with words for a temporary reason but it usually doesn’t last. Motivation comes from within…and to be motivated one must first be inspired so to light the spark that will become a flame. Work on Inspiring people and helping them realize their true potential. Inspire people first and then get them into action. Action will bring success and will cause motivation which will then cause more action. Just remember that is all starts with inspiration.

3. Lead by example

If you want to help people you must be a leader. If you want to be a leader you must do what you ask others to do. You have to lead by example in order to help people. Don’t ever ask people to do something that you are not willing to do yourself. Only when you lead by example will you be able to empower people to change. Otherwise it’s all smoke and mirrors.

4. Forget about what you want

When you stop thinking about what you want and instead focus on the needs of others something magical happens… you end up getting what you want. This can be hard and won’t happen over night. One of the ways to really do this is visualize. Write down the specific people you are going to help and ask them what their dreams and goals are. Then focus on the right leadership and activities to help them get there.

Once you understand these principles and put them in to practice, your success will be directly proportionate to the others your help. It may be hard to see now but over time you will make a huge impact on the lives of others and a byproduct of doing this will help you to become more successful.

If you are looking for a business where you can help others to reach their fullest potential and make a great income while doing it, check out what I recommend.

Can An Online Business Really Work For You? How Would You Know?

Can An Online Business Really Work For You?

Have you seen the super hyped up ads about making it rich overnight on the Internet?

Sure we all have.

Do you believe it?

Most people don’t and with good reason…anything that promises over-night riches is just not true. It’s pretty obvious and the old saying is true… “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”women-thinking4

Here is the problem though… Even though there is an element of the “Too Good To Be True” Crowd out there… making a great income online IS VERY POSSIBLE. However the riches don’t come over night.

But you can get rich online if you really want it. That is a fact and it’s not just super talented geeky people that were in the right time and right place.

It’s people just like you and I who realized there is something better out there and see the power and potential of the Internet.

Now getting rich isn’t going to happen overnight but here is what is pretty cool… making a great income faster is very common on the Internet.

Why?

Because of the reach the Internet has. Because of the ease of products and services that can be delivered. This truly is a global business.

So how do you avoid the fraudsters out there and stick with the proven systems and programs that work? Here are 6 tips to help you on the right path…

1. Look for a business that promotes solid products.

The way a person makes money online is by selling a product or service to others. This can be a physical or digital product. Some type of transaction has to take place. The product you promote needs to be something that people will purchase even if there was not an opportunity behind it. The products need to be high quality and reputable. The best products will be consumable or subscription based so that customers order each and every month.

2. Beware of hyped up claims and promises.

These are rampant online and they are usually easy to spot. Go with your gut feeling. However I do want to point out something VERY important. Regular people have been able to make great incomes on line in a short period of time. Don’t automatically discount these as scams. Here is an example. One of my mentors who decided to look online for a solution, worked really hard his first 2 months and made $40,000 promoting affiliate products. Hen then went on to triple his income at his corporate job in 9 months. There are many many other examples just like this online and they are real.

You will know when something is real when it involves actually work and dedication.

3. Look for solid leadership

Take a look at the company you are getting involved with and look at the leaders. Do they practice what they preach? Do they do what they say they are going to do? They they promote hard work and give realistic expectations? Do they inspire you to be better? That is the kind of product and company you want to be involved with.

4. Believe

You really need to understand and believe that you CAN make a great income online and there are thousands and thousands of every day people who do. You need to stay away from the obvious scams but at the same time you need to understand that most ARE real. Many times though if you are so skeptical of everything you will never believe in an opportunity or in yourself. Many times this is the biggest challenge of all.

5. Look for an opportunity that pays you for a long time.

There are many ways to make money on the Internet. Sometimes there are temporary tricks that work for a short time that can bring in great incomes…but they are soon gone. Google changes the rules or some other type of issue happens. Look for products or opportunities that will be around for a long time and more importantly…will pay you monthly income for a long time to come.

6. Find a marketing system that you and anyone else can follow and implement.

One of the biggest questions you may have about your new business is, “What will I be doing on a daily basis?” This is a critical to know as you need to be able to do something that is simple yet effective. Also if you expect others to do the same thing it needs to be what we call duplicatable. A simple rule is this… “If a 5th grader can do it…then it’s simple enough to duplicate.”

Having a powerful but simple system is critical for an online business to work for you or anyone.

Following the above 6 tips will help you find the opportunities that are real and will help you make the right decision on if it’s the right fit for you.

If you are looking for a solid opportunity, with products that will last a long time and pay each and every month and you are looking for a simple system to follow, watch the video below.

Change Starts With You

Change Starts With You

If you want to get from where you are to where you want to be, it’s going to involve change. You must be the one to make changes. The world will appear to change around you, but really, it’s about the changes you are willing to make.

Most of the time, these are some of the things that need changed – Your thoughts – this is a critical area.

Your core beliefs about yourself. These are the things you’ve made up in your mind (I’m not good enough; not smart enough; etc.)

The people you listen to – if they aren’t encouraging you and moving you forward. Why listen?

Your habits – these are not hard to change.
What you watch; read and listen to – TV; books, radio, etc.

The news can be a great source of negativity. It’s extremely
demotivating. And, believe it or not, you can live without it.

It’s not easy in the beginning but it is worth it. It takes 21
days to develop a new habit. Decide today on some new habits you
want to create and get excited about the positive effect those
changes will have in your life.

Most people find that giving up TV frees up plenty of extra time to
work a business. Most people can find the 10 – 15 hours weekly it
requires to successfully build a home business just in that time
alone.

You can achieve anything you set out to achieve. It is possible.
And, it requires you to make the decision, chart the course and
then set out on that course. You may veer off course at times, but
hold steady to your decision to achieve your goal and get yourself
back on track as quickly as possible each time you stray.

Start today to map out the changes you are committed to making in
your life. It’s okay to start with small, baby steps, but don’t be
afraid to stretch yourself outside of your bubble. Stop getting
“ready” and START TAKING ACTION, MASSIVE ACTION!

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Every hour and day that passes is
time that cannot be reclaimed. You are in charge of every hour in
your day, so make it count.

Mahatma Gandhi said it best, “You must be the change you want to
see in the world.”

Change starts with you, make it start TODAY!

How To Avoid The Holiday (Money) Trap

How To Avoid The Holiday Trap

So the Holidays are upon us! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Quanza and probably several others I’m forgetting.

Would you like to know how to avoid the #1 trap that most people find themselves in this time of the year? No I’m not talking about surprise relatives that stop in for extended visits.

I’m talking about money.

Girl with gift bags

I’m talking about the debt that most people get into in the month of December and then spend the next year and maybe more trying to pay it off. It all starts with good intentions. It’s natural for all of us to want to provide more for our families and loved ones this time of the year. Gifts, vacations and all the other stuff we think we need to do this time of the year… it’s easy to find yourself spending more than you have.

When this happens you just do what most people do right? CHARGE IT ON THE CREDIT CARD!

Unfortunately that is what most people do and it really is a vicious cycle.

So how do you break out of this message and avoid the Holiday Trap all together?

Below are some tips that I recommend… after the 3 tips I have something very important to share.

1. Live within your means
So many of us spend more than we have or can afford. For many people their “means” are not that much. Does it seam to you that you are just barely making it? You probably would not be surprised that most everyone walking around you is doing the same…living paycheck to paycheck and just getting by.

If you don’t have it… you don’t have it. Don’t spend money you don’t have.

2. Budget wisely
Plan for this time of the year wisely. Know how much you make and where all your money is going to. Sounds simple enough right? Then why don’t most people do this? Because it’s hard…especially when things are tight. One thing I’ve found though is that no matter how much you make, if you don’t keep a budget the money always runs out. Keeping a good budget will help you plan for gifts, vacations and holiday plans so you don’t have to get out of debt.

3. Learn to say no.
If you don’t have the money, learn to say no. This can be one of the hardest things for people to do as you can tell by the number personal bankruptcies that happen each and every day. Learning to say no so things is really important when funds are tight.

Now I’d like to get real with you here.

The above tips I just gave are very sound advice but I’d like to switch gears now and get out of “Scarcity Mode”…because that is exactly what the 3 tips I just gave you are. They assume that you are just barely getting by for the most part.

Who wants that!

One of my mentors shared this experience with me recently…

He found himself in the same situation that most people do… living paycheck to paycheck and just getting by. He learned to budget and got his finances down to the penny and soon realized he had two choices.

1. He could continue like this, living paycheck to paycheck and get really good at keeping a budget.

2. He could make more money.

He chose the second. He knew that his job wasn’t getting him anywhere. The 2 to 3% raise a year just wasn’t enough to get him anywhere. He was either going to have to find a higher paying job or take matters into his own hands and start his own home-based business.

He decided to start his own Internet home business with the goal of making and extra $50 a day. You see $50 a day would be enough to pay his monthly house payment. He knew that if he hit this goal it would be a huge relief…

So with a lot of determination, some guidance, a little faith and hard work he was able to get to the $50 a day in a fairly short amount of time. Then something interesting happened…

Pretty soon he found that he was making $100 a day and then $300 a day and not too long after $500 a day! This was something he had dreamed about for many years and it was now actually happening. $500 days turned into $1,000 days and yes he had many days that were 2K, 5K and yes even 10K days!

I know it’s kind of hard to believe when you are stuck in the Rat Race and feel you have no options but the reality is if you really want to break out of the “Trap”, you really need to make more money and getting another job just really isn’t the answer… if you want to hit your financial goals and have a better life…you will rarely ever be able to do that working for someone else.

So that’s how you get out of the Holiday Trap and many other traps in your life.

Why live a life of scarcity when you can live a life of abundance? Why settle for just getting by? We all deserve more than this…

If you would like to know more about my mentor’s story and what I’m doing to get out of the Rat Race… watch the videos below…
