Struggling in your business?

Are you struggling in your business to make any money at all?  Maybe you’re just breaking even, but just can’t grow your business enough to meet those goals and expectation you had when you started.

You’ve reached the point where most network marketing wannabe’s call it quits..

Don’t be a wannabe…

You know, the difference between network marketers who struggle just to make a dime and the super affiliates making a of thousands of dollars of monthly residual income is that the super affiliates have pushed through the hard times, learned from their mistakes, and gone on to become rockstars.

Don’t be a wannabe…  JUST DO IT!  Everyone struggles, remember that.  It’s the one’s that throw in the towel and don’t want to climb that next mountain are the one’s who aren’t successful and stay in the same pattern of life, over and over and over again.  Be different.  Do it for YOU and your family.  Go against the norm.  Keep the vision, do what it takes.

It Takes Guts

cher_burlmoment-300x277

“Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” – Cher

It takes guts

It takes guts to go in a different direction than the masses.  If you are worried about what others think of you or more focused on how you “may” look to others, you will most certainly never have the life of your dreams or the life you could have created.

Fear is normal, natural and there is probably not a person on the planet who will say they have not had fear at some point in their business.

Fear is a constant for many of us. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the desire for something greater and therefore a willingness to push through fear.

To succeed, you must learn to overcome the biggest challenges in a sales role, like the ones described below.
  1. Prospecting. Many sales people will tell you the toughest part of their job is prospecting. …
  2. Offering Value. …
  3. Handling Rejection. …
  4. Gaining Commitments. …
  5. Lack of Efficiency. …

WHY are you building your business?  What is it that will make you move from the masses and step out of your comfort zone to achieve your dream?  What is the why that makes you cry?  It’s got to be strong and powerful to give you a clear vision and drive to move forward no matter what the obstacles.  You will have many obstacles along the way to success.  Focus on the end results and keep pushing forward no matter what. You got this!

Success!

Tonality

Geodynamics | Presentation skills – 1. Voice

Here’s the thing about tonality

This is the big problem, most people, they’re looking for a script. But if you use the wrong tonality in a network marketing recruiting script, it doesn’t work.

You can study network marketing recruiting materials all day long but if you don’t understand HOW to say things, your results won’t be great.

Ever practice what to say
to a prospect but it just didn’t
go well?
People that are good at sales are
naturally good at one thing that most
people don’t understand

It isn’t what you say, it’s HOW you 
say it, how you inflect your voice
at the right time.

Today, you are going to get to watch
a video that no one else in our space is
teaching.
IF you are serious about getting more results in your network marketing recruiting, be sure to watch the below video where he shares:
  1. How to sound when calling leads
  2. How to sound when you want to get someone to join or buy
  3. EXACTLY what I say to people after they have watched a presentation and more importantly HOW I sound

You Don’t Get Paid by the Hour

“You don’t get paid by the hour. You get paid by the value you bring to the hour.” – Jim Rohn

It isn’t enough to say how much you have been working or that you have been “busy”. What have you been busy doing? In other words, how many people are you exposing to your presentation and opportunity each month/week/day? In addition, you will face some rejection. Not comfortably in your home office watching videos.  For instance, make it a point to talk to at least 2 new people a day about your business, that is 10 new contacts a week! Do this week after week. After that, your business WILL  grow.

Your attitude and belief will come across in the way you talk to people… some will catch your excitement, your urgency and your belief and choose to join you, going on to share their new business with that same level of excitement, passion and commitment as well.

Here’s the thing: in order to be successful in your business, you need to develop the attitude that you are going to the top. Along the way, you’re going to take a lot of people with you. Along the way, you’re going to leave even more people behind. Not because you chose to leave them there, but because THEY chose to stay there. And there’s nothing you can do about it. You have not control what others choose to do. Only yourself.

You got this!

Stop Complaining and Change!

How many times have you seen an, “Ugh, I hate Mondays” post on social media?

I-Hate-Mondays-Simpsons-Picture

Those who are completely happy have put themselves in that position because anything other than happiness just isn’t acceptable. They made sacrifices and worked hard until they reached the level of happiness they were striving for.

It all comes down to identifying what it is that you want, formulating a plan to get there and then working hard until you reach your desired goal. It has nothing to do with luck.

If you are unhappy, you currently have two options: You can complain about it and hope it magically changes, or you can set out to make a change. For the latter, here is a simple four-step plan to help you achieve happiness. If you are unhappy you owe it to yourself to make a change — life is too short to delay any longer.

1. Determine why you are unhappy.

There are several reasons why you could be unhappy — you could be working a job that you don’t truly love, working with people you don’t enjoy being around or doing something you are over-qualified for.

It might not be work related at all — you might be in a dead end or unhealthy relationship. There could be a million different reasons, and it’s up to you to identify them. Whatever they are, just know that you aren’t going to find true happiness until you first single out what the problem is.

2. Change your attitude.

The first thing I mentioned above was the “FML” and “Ugh, I hate Mondays” social media status updates we all see on a regular basis — that type of attitude sets the tone. If you are constantly filling your head with a negative outlook, what do you expect will happen?

Negative thoughts breed negativity and unhappiness, while positive thoughts breed positivity and happiness.

When it comes down to it we are all responsible for our own happiness. The only way you will be happy is by changing your attitude and understanding that you are in full control, and fully capable of changing your situation.

3. Create a plan to reach happiness.

When you know why you are unhappy and are armed with a positive attitude, you can start to devise a plan to achieve happiness. This is where many people hit a mental roadblock and self-doubt enters their minds.

“I’m not going to find a better job.”
“I wont find someone else.”
“I’m too old to start a business.”

Excuses are made to justify remaining miserable. If you are serious about truly being happy you need to push all self-doubt out of your mind and commit to developing a plan to become happy. Determine what your ultimate end goal is and reverse engineer the steps you will need to take to reach it.

4. Take action and don’t look back.

With your plan outlined it’s time to move forward and never look back. Simply taking action doesn’t guarantee results — your journey to happiness could include mistakes, rejection and disappointment. But if you don’t take action there is only one guarantee, and that is your situation will never improve and you will remain unhappy.

Happiness isn’t going to happen overnight — you have to continue to push forward, regardless of how difficult it may appear.

Some Succeed, Others Struggle

There are reasons why some people succeed, while others struggle.

network-marketing

If you’re having difficulty converting prospects, here are 10 tips that can give you a leg up:

1. Make an excellent first impression: You may only get a few minutes to really impress someone.

2. Know what you don’t know: The easiest way to turn potential customers off is to come off like a know-it-all.

3. Practice what others teach: Find role models or mentors in the field and watch what they do, then emulate it.

4. Remember people’s names and faces: You never know when remembering someone is going to mean the difference between them listening to you or tuning you out.

5. Be a leader to those below you: As much as you want to climb the ladder, don’t forget to be a role model to those just getting started. They need you to set a good example.

6. Treat your business like a business: Even if direct selling isn’t your primary job, give it the time and respect it deserves, so one day you can make it your No.1 priority.

7. Research, research, research: Learn everything you can about potential customers, and your business. There’s no such thing as knowing too much.

8. Get strong at reading non-verbal cues: Customers often say more with their facial expressions and gestures than they do with words.

9. Act and don’t hesitate: When a decision needs to be made, don’t delay. Chances are, someone else is pursuing the same opportunity you are.

10. Confidence is everything: Belief in yourself is at least half the battle; think positive and you’ll get positive results.

The Sizzle Sells the Steak

 

imagesThe Sizzle Sells the Steak

If you’ve ever been camping, you’ve noticed that when you separate
logs on a campfire the fire goes out.  Push them back together and
the fire blazes up.  So with ONE log, you have nothing.

If you have two logs, you’ll have a flame, with three you have a fire,
with four you have a BLAZE!

When having a meeting, be sure that there are at least three people
there, and when the fourth person arrives, your meeting is really
blazing!  We call these sessions “sizzle sessions.”  Your MLM program
is the steak, and it’s the SIZZLE that sells the steak.

This is a good place to bring someone who isn’t quite as
hot as you’d like them to be, they’ll catch on fire!

If you’re at a public place like a restaurant, watch for people who
might be listening in on the conversation.  When the Sizzle Session
is over, hang around a bit and see if anyone approaches you.  They
might not approach while there’s a crowd, but they will after the
others leave.

Start the Sizzle Session by having people tell about something good
that has happened in their business.

When you are finished, part with something like this:  “Just think,
this is as hard as we will ever work!”  Those who have joined your
meeting that are involved in a regular JOB will be motivated to hurry
up and get to that same position.

These lessons have been adapted from “The 45 Second Presentation,”
by Don Failla.

I don’t have TIME!

Randall Bramblett - "I Just Don't Have The Time" [Lyric Video ...

Have you heard that before from some team members or prospects?

Everyone has the time if they are serious about getting ahead and building a business.

In other words, find that 1/2 hour – hour or two each day to build a incredible business not only for you, but your family.  It is so worth it!  You can’t rely on Corporate America for retirement anymore.  The way things are today, having a back up plan is a MUST. And a good, solid company to build up over time is an incredible choice for your nest egg and your future.

Activity Time Spent Time Remaining in the week
Sleep
8 hours a day
56 hours a week 112 hours remaining.
Full time job:
8 hours a day
40 hours a week 72 hours remaining.
Commuting:
2 hours a day
10 hours a week 62 hours remaining.
Eating:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 48 hours remaining.
Family & Entertainment:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 34 hours remaining.
Miscellaneous:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 20 hours remaining!

Many business owners are just going to hide behind the excuse that they don’t have the time. They’ll wait until someday they magically clear their calendar, get past the current situations they are dealing with, and then they’ll do the things that will make their business grow.

Sadly their someday never comes…

Instead, you’ve got to make the decision that your someday is now! And that your starting point is today!

What is your WHY?

Is it more money to get that new car, to send your kids to college, to take that special vacation? Whatever it is, keep that WHY in front of you and make the decision to stop being stuck and do something to make your life better and have fun doing it! In other words, our Mia Bella business is a FUN business! Who doesn’t like beautiful scents? Most people do!

Above all, when you do this, and back it up with simple, focused action to incrementally change the way you are building your business, the results will amaze you. You got this!

Recruiting through Social Media

Have you ever tried sponsoring new people in your organization through social media?

When recruiting through social media, such as Facebook, your fans like to see real content.

Post content with personality & content that’s interesting. Also content with useful resources or tips and content that’s unique.

This is why you want to create your own unique images. Don’t just re-use the company’s branded content. I know Facebook will rank images that are used by lots of people lower than unique content. Use unique images! Your own images!

And when you have plenty of interesting and unique content on your business page, you’re ranked well by Facebook. When that happens, Facebook is more likely to show your followers any branded content when you do share a company video or image.

If you want to actually get results from social media in your network marketing business, then start raising more curiosity that does not allow them to do their own independent research.

I finished watching an incredible training with Network Marketing trainer, Ray Hidgon.  I learn so much every time I listen in to his trainings! Take a look at his blog. Wonderful information on building a big business.

Do you ever wonder the best way to get results by recruiting through Social Media? Check out his social media blog posts for some incredible information. Ray Higdon Blog
