The industry seems to be full of people that are running as fast as they can with very little results to show for it. I just want to encourage you to take a breath, slow down a little. Learn to take the time to think and plan. Listen, I am preaching to the choir here, I am as guilty as anyone reading this post and I am not afraid to admit it! I believe this is a learned skill.
I remember our preacher a few years ago saying, “Pray that God will give you creative ideas”. I remember thinking to myself, “that is the last thing I
need”. Some of you can relate, right?
I started my first business, a direct mail company out of my parent’s home when… Continue reading
As I have said many times, if not for the invention of the walkman, I would have never made it in the network marketing industry.
I was blessed to have a full-time job at IBM that allowed me to listen to audio cassettes, 8 hours a day. Truth be known, that is what created many of my beliefs and philosophies. I didn’t enter the industry with the skill sets and mindsets to build a network marketing team, they were developed. Because I was able to do it, I KNOW others can develop the right skill sets and mindsets as well.
When people got to a certain level on our team they were invited to our Leaders inside circle called the Eagle Club. We would meet together once a quarter. All new Eagle Club members were given a binder with 4… Continue reading
After 30+ years in the network marketing industry the only thing I know for sure is that most people who achieve a good income do it with the skills, confidence, work ethic and mindsets they ENTERED the industry with. The challenge with that is personality is not duplicatable as we talk about in great detail in the Masses Training.
My message to network marketing leaders has always been YOU ARE NOT THE ISSUE, duplicatable systems are! Unfortunately many network marketers are more concerned about developing a following than they are new leaders.
It seems lately I cannot get off this soap box. Everytime I write an article like this I have friends tell me I am going to upset the “MLM Good Ole Boy Network” you would think by now they would understand that I DON’T CARE! My… Continue reading
Sometime over the last 30 days, somewhere I wrote this statement:
“”””” Spare the hate emails, you cannot say something to me that has not already been said. I am not picking on the network marketing industry. The same can be said about real estate agents, insurance agents, and the list of industries goes on and on.
I love the network marketing industry, but I am a HATER when I see the lack of leadership most “leaders” provide to their organizations. Somehow we have evolved into an industry that feels anyone who has ever made a monthly check of $10,000 is a “leader”. INCOME has nothing to do with leadership as it relates to the network marketing industry or any other real world business. $10,000 a month income earners in MLM are a dime a dozen as I… Continue reading
As you probably know, way back in 2000 I owned the
first online webinar company called Orbitalk. It is a
long, long story, but when it was all said and done I
lost about ¼ million dollars on that project.
I am not going to go into all the horrific details at this
time, but the bottom line is I was a couple of years
ahead of the curve.
The good news is over the years webinars have probably
been the best use of my time, and they are the best way
to connect with team members and customers.
If you are involved in marketing the good news is today
virtually everyone knows what a webinar is.
If you are doing webinars, or ever plan to you probably
know the #1 software (GoToWeinars.com) charges $499
a month for a 1,000… Continue reading
Thanks for all the messages. Yes, I am alive and well, thanks for asking!
Every tournament team in college basketball has their season end with a loss accept ONE. This year was KENTUCKY’S year.
Last year, we went to the final game. We went on an Epic Run at the end of the year. No Kentucky fan really thought we would win the tournament, but we enjoyed the run.
Connecticut won the national championship in 2014, but there is not a basketball fan in the world that really believed they were the best team. Sometimes in basketball, like life, that is just the way the ball bounces.
When you know you had the best team, and you lose it is heartbreaking. This has been a special year to be a Kentucky fans. I will go to my grave knowing, they… Continue reading
When I first introduced The 7-Lies of Attraction Marketing a couple of years ago the network marketing industry was bombarded with self-proclaimed “gurus” and “consultants” trying to teach people how to do something they had never done, or taught anyone else to do. Honestly it was embarrassing, not only to the people on video talking about something they obviously knew nothing about, but also the industry.
Thankfully these worthless, time wasting, methods have diminished drastically. Unfortunately many people wasted a lot of time and money playing the I AM A GURU SO LISTEN TO ME game.
I understand, people do business with those they KNOW, LIKE & TRUST. However when it comes to network marketing or any business I have always looked for people that are Pinnacle Leaders who have a proven track record of TEACHING others to do what… Continue reading
Most people who have "15 Years of Network Marketing Experience" really have one bad year, repeated 15 times! DON'T BE THAT GUY or GAL!
Five years ago I was the corporate trainer for a company called My Premier Business. Unfortunately they went out of business, but thankfully we met a lot of great people. During one of my training webinars for them, I covered an idea called MPB Mastery, which could have just as easily been called MLM Mastery.
I wanted to share this information with the readers of this blog, because I had the opportunity to be exposed to it, 10 years earlier and I missed it. I don't want you guys to miss this, so here is a replay from that closed corporate training webinar I did several years ago.
If you… Continue reading
As most of you know, I have been sending emails during March Madness and offering some special discounts. I receved this email from one of our subscribers and found it interesting. I understand that many people who listen to the talking heads in the media have this perception. However perception has nothing to do with reality.
Sorry i don’t call a school that recruits players to play one year a college basketball team. Just a minor league team for the pros.
This email reminded me that as human beings, we see things not as they are, but as we are.
Here are the facts.
#1 This team has 16 players. Only 4 freshmen that could possibly leave for the NBA after one year. A couple of them will probably go… Continue reading
Last night’s game will go down as one of the most memorable in the storied history of University of Kentucky Basketball. Thanks for all the tweats and messages making sure my heart was able to take it :). Both teams approached this game the way we should approach life, they gave it all they had, and left it all on the court!
38 – 0, only two more left!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to conduct multiple 10 minute coaching calls with clients, friends, and customers from all over the World. For those of you that tried to get through and couldn’t I apologize, for those of you that did, please take the information we talked about to heart and implement it.
At the end of the coaching sessions, my biggest AH HA moment was there are a lot of… Continue reading
