My greatest reward from my network marketing business is the ability I had (and still have) to be there for and with my children. Even though they are both grown and gone and my son is a father himself, I never lose sight of the pure joy that brought to me, and the peaceful world it gave them to grow up in.
Just a few weeks back, I was able to move a few things in my schedule and meet my daughter in New York City for 5 days, staying in a penthouse apartment 35 floors up, overlooking the Hudson, with the Statue of Liberty beckoning to me every morning and every night, right out the window.
My business didn’t stop. It didn’t need to. I have set things up so that I have a truly laptop life and business,
Corporate America could never offer me that.
In my opinion, there is no better time or option right now than network marketing. In my opinion, and...
It’s been a “thing”, hasn’t it? And not just one thing, but many many things. Plenty of good, bad and ugly. And, while most of us are ready for the clock to strike midnight on 12/31 and have instant change. Probably not going to happen like that. So, let’s talk about reframing how we look back and look forward.
On today’s show, let’s reflect on 2020 and I’d like to share what I have come away with so far, as gifts to me, my business and those who I serve, so far.
And, it remains ever evolving!
As with anything, there is 50/50 in all of life. Almost every day. We can wake up feeling fabulous and then quickly, that can be disrupted and we feel frustrated; anxiety; upset over something.
Then, life settles down again and all is groovy.
I’m preparing a goal setting workshop like no other for 12/30, and to do so, I have been sorting through the year for myself.
Do you know how to effectively introduce yourself in a way that creates instant impact, curiosity and interest?
Far too many network marketers like to use their company name as a way of explaining what they do. I hear this a lot:
I do Arbonne. I’m with Herbalife. I am Team Beach Body.
Do you fall into this trap?
First, no one cares about your company or product names. In most cases, these names mean nothing to them. And, you miss a chance to make a connection when you fail to introduce yourself and what you do effectively.
There is one thing that is always on your prospect’s mind, even subconsciously and they is - WHAT’s in it for me.
What do you do, and how would it benefit me?
You’re likely having that thought too, when you meet people.
Right now, with everything going on, people are scrolling social media. They are...
Feeling challenged about what to share on Social Media that actually creates interest? Stops people from scrolling and starts a conversation with likes, comments and shares? Let’s talk about this in today’s show.
Get my video training on this process - how to write compelling copy and content that gets people to stop scrolling, read, engage and want to know more about you, grab it at -
This will make more sense as you actually go through it and I’m not just talking at you.
Are you struggling with keeping your business alive during Covid? Finding new people who are interested; and building true connection with them in the crowded space of Social Media?
Struggling to be seen.
Attract your ideal clients, ready to pay and join?
I see you. I know you. I get you.
I've been in that struggle, too.
Just like you, I wanted more for myself. More for my family. More for our future.
Other People’s Opinions are one of the most common things that hold us back. Keep us stuck. Keep us making up stories about other people.
We have deep fears about what others think and say about us. And, why is this? Do they pay our bills? Feed us? Care for our children? Are they really spending as much time thinking about us as we like to think that they are?
Do you spend much time thinking about and judging what others are doing?
Why? Or why not?
We spend a heck of a lot of time “thinking” that other people are thinking things about us. Most of the time, we “think” that their thoughts about us are negative.
Here’s a little secret - other people aren’t thinking about you as much as you think they are. People don’t spend that much time thinking outside of themselves and their own situation. Do you?
And even if...
We have fears; we are uncertain; we are not feeling up for the task and so we procrastinate.
When you are feeling the urge to put off, or procrastinate what you know are the tasks that will move you forward in your network marketing business, STOP.
Take 3 deep breaths. Just try it.
Ask you breathe, clear your mind. Bring your thoughts to your breathing and then ask -
Why am I procrastinating or avoiding the action steps that I know will move my business forward?
Be very open to what comes up for you. Your mind will always seek to give you the answer. The key is for us to dial in and really listen. HEAR what the answer is.
Write it down and analyze it. Ask yourself - why? Why is this stopping me? Why am I allowing this to hold me back from pursuing my goals? My hopes? My dreams?
Is it a person? Who is it? Why do they matter? Is it their...
Daily Mindset Work is the work that every millionaire and every billionaire I’ve ever heard interviewed practice.
It’s what I shared last week about managing your mind. Doing your thought downloads when you have limiting beliefs.
I teach my clients how to set an income goal and a date. And then do the work in their minds, on paper each day, to get them to the goal.
Everything is created in the mind first. The device you are listening to this on was first in someone’s mind. They thought about it; probably wrote ideas and plans, tried, tested, failed and feared. And, got up and kept going.
The chair you sit on, your bed, the car you drive, music - everything was created in the mind first.
Your success has to come from your mind first. Connect your thoughts to the right feelings of who you must become in order to have what you want. Then, the ideas...
Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US, and here’s to a beautiful day if you are not in the US or are listening to this another day.
Let’s talk about gratitude in a new way, given the crazies of 2020, and how to have it in spite of and because of what we have and are experiencing in the world with the Pandemic.
Gratitude is a word that is often and easily bantered around.
"Start with gratitude. Gratitude gives you more of what you want. Do a daily gratitude journal."
Bleh, bleh, bleh....
What is gratitude, really? And how do we manage to feel grateful when we are in a challenging situation?
Life is 50/50. Always. We have joy, love, peace, happiness. We also have, conversely pain, grief, disappointment, frustration.
We can’t know the bountiful fall harvest without the scorching suns of summer. We can’t know the blooms of spring without the frozen ice of winter.
It gives us lemons,...
A better concept for Overcoming Fear is pushing past fear. Fears never completely go away. Some do, in certain areas. Practice and repetition create this.
In order to get there, though, we must push past those fears. We must learn to “Do it Scared.”
We can do tough things. The hard things. I can, and so can you.
The challenge is that your brain is stuck in primitive mode. At least the part of your brain that is running the show, typically.
That part of your brain says - no, don’t do that. It might be uncomfortable. It might be unpleasant. It might bring up feelings and emotions, and do you really want to go there?
This is where you take charge. You pay attention. You become aware. You do your daily thought downloads. You do them multiple times a day if you find yourself getting stuck. You stop, and write down your thoughts. And, you practice some tough love...
My life completely changed when I began a sincere morning routine and daily thought work process.
I have done pieces of it for years, starting as far back as junior high school, with a journal required for my English Creative Writing class. I didn’t totally grasp the benefit back then, but I was aware how much better I felt after getting my thoughts down on paper.
Through the years, I have done a number of things, including journaling, affirmations, visualization, meditation, yoga, and reading plenty of self help and motivational books.
In 1997, I went on a TV, news and negativity fast and have really never picked it back up. I rarely watch the news, and don’t have any shows I binge watch.
After reading Hal Elrod’s book, "The Miracle Morning" and listening to his podcast, I got re-energized to put it all into a formula that works for me.
It’s based loosely on his SAVERS format, and I mix things up some days to fit me:
