Here’s what’s up with you, you’ve launched your network marketing business, and you’re so excited. You can’t wait to drive the big fancy car, live in the big exciting home. Before that even, you’re excited about having money to pay for kids braces, gymnastics and karate and not have to ask permission to do certain things and take money out of the family budget.
The problem is, now that you’ve launched the business,...
Network Marketing is a fabulous opportunity when done right, and a nightmare on steroids when done wrong.

3 Most important people in your network marketing business. I’m filming this during the COVID-19 pandemic, quarantined at home. For a lot of people, business has come to a standstill. There’s fear, anxiety and questioning about what’s going to come next.
First, calm down as much as you can, and know that at some point we will return to normal life. Any time there’s an economic downturn or rough situations, be aware of falling into the trap of thinking about these 2 types of people, too much.
Real estate, has suffered some challenges now, as people are holding off.
But, home business searches are trending up 600% in Google Search.

Your Network Marketing success depends on your ability to position yourself in a way that creates interest.
Let’s cover the success language that you use and how important that is in sharing confidently what it is that you do. From your network marketing business opportunity to the products and services that you offer, you must know how to share those in a way that doesn’t feel over hyped, or too salesy, and most importantly gets your audience to lean in.
I call it “positioning.” Get the free download
so we can work through the process of developing what you will say.
You want to position three particular areas:
Yourself, as the expert or “go to” person in your field. You won’t call yourself that, but by using good language that creates the idea in their mind that you know what you’re...
And, by success, I mean success in any area of your life.
That one thing is -
The Formula for Success is simple - just double your rate of failure. Thomas Watson.
Pay CLOSE attention to what you resist. It’s the path to growth and success.
Discipline equals freedom.
It’s part of the human experience to run into challenges, obstacles and procrastination.
Think of water. It knows no obstacles. It flows over or around any obstacle. You, too, have this capability.

So, let’s think about the things in your life you may feel you are struggling with, right now.

What is content? Great question and exactly what we will cover here.
We’re going to create a content plan and calendar for you to market with effectively.
If you're not consistently marketing your business, you don't HAVE a business.
If you’ve been coached by your upline or someone to just send a bunch DMs saying - Hey girl, I like your look, you’d be perfect for….
You’ve been misguided. Even my 20 something daughter is turned off by these. If your target audience is 20 or above, they are most likely turned off, too
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANOTHER SPAM DM!!
It's not effective.
That is not content that sells or sizzles.
Content is everything you put out on social media. Every status update; reply to someone; video, blog posts, story, Facebook live, profile edits, etc.
Authentic and Organic content and marketing will ALWAYS outperform COLD PROSPECTING

In March 2014, I had the honor of interviewing Mark Yarnell, a Network Marketing legend. Sadly, he passed away not too long after.
I thought this would be a good time, with the current Pandemic and resurgence of huge growth in Network Marketing.
Listen carefully for his views on Other People's Opinions and Impression Management.
I used to listen to Mark Yarnell’s training CDS on my portable CD player at the gym. I am dating us both here, and I am sure they were on cassette before that.
I have learned a lot from him about Network Marketing over the years and because I have listened to him so intently in my ear buds, I really felt like I know him.
