What A Difference Ten Years Make

I woke up this morning to a call from my banker telling me I needed to transfer some funds into my checking account.  It seems my account was “overdrawn”.  My first reaction was NO WAY.   I knew I had plenty of money in my checking account.

Ten years ago, I would have freaked out, been worried and upset.  Back then even a small amount of money would have driven me nuts.   I would have been very upset and worried

Instead, I just laughed.  I knew that they had to be wrong.  I went to check the account, saw they had a balance in the red and transferred in some money.  The Banker again asked me if I wanted to “link” accounts so nothing would ever bounce, but I didn’t.  I prefer to hear from them immediately and get it fixed.

I then went and printed out their records to compare with my own.   Going down the list most things matched and I went to where I had no more outstanding checks.   I then went to look at deposits, and found a deposit I had made at the bank two weeks prior was not put into my account.

I found the receipt and took it to them.   They could not immediately tell me where my money was but I wasn’t too worried.  Within an hour they called to say they had located my deposit and it would be in my account within 24 hours.   It was.   They also charged me several fees of $35 each for “their error”.   I had to call and get that fixed and I was back to the future.

Ten years ago I lived paycheck to paycheck.   Back then I would have totally lost it if that had happened.   This time I felt calm and not phased at all.   The amount was quite large but I figured it would get fixed.   I’ve learned to go with the flow and I no longer live paycheck to paycheck.

It’s a much better way to live.  I know too that If I can do this, so can you.   Stop living by counting pennies and find a way to a better life.  Find and build residual income that comes in even and keeps on growing.  It’s out there waiting for you.

It’s certainly nothing that will fall in your lap, however, if you are willing to go to work daily, little by little, to grow a business.  You do can live a lifestyle where you can enjoy life.    Live life on your terms.   I know if I did it you can too.   Get started today.   Don’t put it off.

Defining Who You Are

Who are you?

Have you ever thought of that?  What do you like to do?  What do you dislike?

Do you have a job you love or do you even have a job?   What’s your favorite thing to do?

Do you know what you’d like out of live?   If you could live any place in the world, and money was no object, where would you live?  What kind of car would you drive?

If you never had to worry about time or money ever again, what would you be doing right now?  Who would you help?  Would you share with others?  If so, who would you help out?

You”ve probably had someone aske you thing before,  yet,  have you ever given these types of questions any thought?  Do you still have dreams or have you given up on your dreams?

Maybe it’s time to be back to being a child.  When children are young, they feel like they are indestructible and can do anything.  When they age, things change and sometimes they start to believe they can’t have what they want.   They feel they can’t do anything, and are stuck in their circumstances.

Your mind can play tricks on you if you let it.  If you want to change your life, start working on changing your mindset.   Define who you want to be.   Change who you are into the person you want to be.

It’s not always easy to overcome some mindsets.  It will take work and lots of it.   Nothing is always easy but if you want to be the best you can be, you have to change.  Change is good.

Nothing stays the same.  Life changes and if you learn to change and roll with the punches   you can become anything you want to be.   Don’t let anyone stop you.   Go to work and make things happened and define the life you’ve always wanted to live.

If you ever want to be free to leave your dreams,  you must be willing to get started and go to work, and NEVER quit.

See you at the top

Holidays Are Here Again

Time to think about holiday cards. We all have loved ones that may be in other states, or countries. It’s time to start thinking of cards and gifts. The season is once again upon us.

Thanksgiving is almost here. After that we’ll be into Christmas season. Christmas cards are a tradition. How are you doing yours this year? Do you send cards?

If you send cards, photo cards are even better. If you can put your family on the card, and send to your loved ones, wouldn’t that be cool? I know I love seeing photos of my kids, and grandkids. When they put them on a card, I save that card forever.

We are on the countdown now. It’s time to get those cards ready and rolling along. What if there was an easy way, you could design them online? What is if saved you both time and money? What if you could send gifts with the card as well, without leaving your home?

Well you can. Just ask me for a free trial. The count down is here. Check to see how many days are left until Christmas. Time to get your cards ready.

Mentors and Gurus

I’ve noticed over the past year or so, there are more and more “social media experts”, mentors and gurus cropping up online.   They have some impressive sounding videos, blogs, or even courses they offer for sale.

Have you ever wondered why you would need to share your hard earned cash with them?  What will they teach you?  Many of the lessons they are sharing can be found free online, or at a local library.

Instead of telling you the truth, they all want you to follow them.  

If you are looking for a mentor, take time to check out the background of those claiming to be coaches or experts.  What have they accomplished that they can teach you?   What are they selling?

ASK QUESTIONS!

If they are in the field of Network Marketing, what company or companies are they with or have they been with in their past life?  What success or failure have they had?   Can they give you references of those they have helped succeed that actually are making a full time living at it?    Are they making a full time living?

Unfortunately online, they can build fancy web sites, and make themselves look very successful.   Many times the opposite is true.   They maybe hiding in a dump  or a trailer someplace, dead broke yet looking for their next prey.  Don’t let it be you.

If you are looking for them to mentor and coach you on how to build a Network Marketing company, wouldn’t you want to know that they have actually built one and made decent money at it?

How can anyone mentor you in success if they have never been a success?   Would you rather listen to someone that learned, and did it, or someone that just claims to be an expert?  Do your own homework.  Don’t buy into everything they want to sell you.

I see an awfully lot of people that I personally know online, selling themselves as mentors.  They sound good cause they tell you what you want to hear.  Unfortunately, most of  those I know have never been successful themselves, yet they are trying to sell others into following them.

I’m just amazed at how many social media experts are cropping up.  Funny thing most of them have pages that look alike.  That’s because they bought into a “system” and now they are trying to get others to buy in, so they will make money when you buy all the stuff they recommend.

Use common sense folks.  You don’t need to buy into all these things they are selling you out here.   I work in this industry full time, and make a decent living.   I don’t buy all the courses, leads, dialers, ads and junk they are selling.   You don’t have to either.

If you’re willing to go to work, you can build a business without those gurus and mentors.   I have never charged anyone for advice or help, and I never will.   I learned most everything on my own, read books, listened to tapes and just stayed focused and on course.  I did it, and I know if I did it, anyone can.

Upward and onward.

Get More Business And Referrals

Are you growing a business?  Would you like to learn a simple and easy way to get and keep more customers and clients?

Whatever you do, if you want to have your clients remember you, you have to take time to show appreciation. Keep your name in front of them.   Get their birthdays, and find out about their families.  Be sure to send them cards without logos.  Send them thank you cards, holiday cards and thinking of you cards.

I have a business I use, that always does that.  I just recently received a card from them reminding me to set my clock back for the time change.  They send me cards at odd times of the year, and of course when I have a friend looking for their type product, I’m quick to refer them.  After all, they remembered me after the sale.

I think that is very important.   On the other hand, I made a large purchase and bought a car for cash last year.  I let the sales person know about how I expected to hear from him after the sale and didn’t want to just receive advertising messages.   Over the next year, the only time I heard from them was when there was with a sales letter or things with their logo.  Needless to say when I had a friend ask me where I purchased my vehicle  I told them I’d not recommend them.

It’s all about relationships, and those that build relationships AFTER the sale are those that win.  If you’d like to learn some ways to do that in your own life, there is a free call every Wednesday night at 9 PM EST.  If you’d like to learn more, you can tune in on the web or dial in. Simply click to  register online.

Enjoy the calls.  Hope you learn lots to help you grow your business.

Could Network Marketing Be The Answer?

What if you build a business and it was highly successful?

What if you could be financially free?   Would you be willing to invest 3-5 years working steadily 10-15 hours extra a week if you knew you could create independence?

I truly believe those willing to go to work and take our industry SERIOUS enough to put their nose to the grindstone and work can be successful.  Key word is “WORK”,  and being consistent.

Anyone that wants to can make it work, if they are willing to learn and grow.  Compare building a business it to college. You go to college  and it’s MEGA Bucks.  My grandson just is finishing his second year in College.  It’s very pricey.

Even with scholarships,  it still costs about $10,000 or more for  two semesters.   Our state has a program where they pay about 75% of tuition  if you qualify.  Even with that,  you still have to pay for books and other things and the costs add up rapidly into the thousands of dollars.

Now think of this…..at the end of years of paying all this money out,  they get a piece of paper.  They then are turned lose to go out and search for a JOB.  If they are one of the lucky ones that finds one, most get to pay back all the student loans. If they are fortunate and didn’t have to borrow too much they may have their loan paid off in 4 or 5 years.   They also start at low wages and have to compete with hundreds of others for the few jobs that may be open.

What if instead, they put the time spent studying and money spent for books and tuition into building a network marketing business?   What if they worked it for the same hours as class and spend the studying time in personal development.  What if they built a business, slowly over the years?

I think they would have spent a LOT less money and after 5 years, be making good money if they worked it.

Think about that.

I truly believe our industry is the answer for our future.   We have no major over head.  We don’t have to search for a JOB where we make someone else rich.    Here our income and potential is up to us.  Network Marketing is the future.   Have you ever considered it.

People can work from their homes, and help others do the same.  People can start out part time to create some extra income.

Our industry is truly a blessing and a way to reach out and help others.    I know there are those out there that claim it does not work, but if you ask them, it’s because they signed up and had a few people tell them no, so they quit.  People don’t like to blame themselves to they blame the industry for their lack of success.

Next time someone tells you Network Marketing doesn’t work,  dig deeper. As questions.  Ask them things like what experience they had,  how hard did they work?   What company did they choose?  As in any industry there are good and bad things.  Perhaps they picked a fly by night and didn’t do their due diligence.   I’ve had my own share of bad things but the good certainly way outweighs the bad.  I’m so thankful I didn’t let the negative people keep me from building.

Network Marketing is my full time income.   If I had not chosen to build a business, I’d be living today on peanuts.   I’m very grateful for this industry.

We’re all have a chance to be build a solid future.  We can over come the challenges of our bad economy and together we can make a difference.   If it’s to be, it starts and ends with each one of us.

See you all at the top one day!
