So if you want to build your business, There’s things that you have to do to be consistent to go through things, you know, like for me. you know, I started in this industry 35 years ago. I didn’t plan to ever make as much money as I do now, or be the top leader of now. My third network marketing company. that I’ve made the top leader ranks in
When I started out I wanted to make an extra 50 to $100 a month just to have some extra money. So I wasn’t using my husband’s money to buy his own birthday gifts right?
So that leading to where I’m at now. And being in the top 10 of 3 different network marketing companies now, and speaking on stages and training all over the world. It’s just…. I didn’t plan that right. But that’s what ended up happening. And but it’s a good life. It’s not going to happen like in the next 2 weeks, or anything, but it can happen in like the next year or 2 if you want to, and if you want to get busy. And so the thing is, you do have to work it right? So like they say it’s network marketing, right? It’s not net wish marketing, not net. Want marketing. Right? It’s network marketing. So you do have to work. So be careful of those companies or people that say, Oh, just sign up, and the money just flows in, because that never happens. So that’s either a scam, or you know, they’re just lying to you to get you to sign up, and so I like to be honest with my people. I like to teach and train. But But what if you do work it? You can make the money, and you can be successful. And everybody’s definition of success is different, too. Right like for me back then, 35 years ago my definition of success was making it an extra 50 to $100 a month, you know.
now, my goals are a lot higher than that, and they’re in the 5 figures a month. So but you know you can. You can work to get higher. But the biggest thing is being consistent, so the more consistent you are, the better you’re going to be. Period. The more you talk about it. The more presentation to you do, the better you’re gonna get. And and the more people you’re going to sign up, the more you know, that’s one huge difference between any of the top leaders in any company. It doesn’t even matter where they’re at is they’re still the same as everybody else.
They’ve just done more. more more samples. They’ve talked more people.
with our company. They’ve done the balance test more. But that’s it. So it’s it’s just talking to more people. So the more people you talk to, the more nodes you’re going to get, but also at the same time, the more yes, you’re going to get.
one challenge that I have for everyone listening to this is just be like, they say, ignorance on fire.
So people buy from your energy. They buy from your excitement, they buy from your passion. So if you are not excited about your company or your product, then you know they’re not going to be excited to join either. Right? And you don’t have to sit there and read every single thing, and know every single thing about the whole company the Comp. Plan, this, that everything else like you should get to learn those things, but not before you go to work, not before you start talking to people, because the more you talk to people, and the more that they see your excitement and your energy about it, the more likely that they will sign up.
So when you get busy and not worry about doing all those other things. you know, people are gonna pay attention and your passion sells. And so the more passionate you sound, the more that you’re going to sell
had them on Youtube? you know, do a video on Tik tok, you know, wherever you want to play, or all those places. But the thing is the people they see your passion, they see your energy. And you know, in especially in videos, and they see your eyeballs. I think that’s one of the huge things right is because your eyes are the window to the soul. And if people can’t see your eyes.
Then they’ll be a little bit more leery, right? So you can talk to people on the phone. But video is always even better.
you know, sometimes you can answer people back if they message you with the video message, or you could just say, Hey, when do you have time to hop on a zoom for 5 min, you know, or even message people, and you know, if you see, like their active status.
if it says that they’re active. Message them and say, Hey, can you hop on a zoom or on a a face time, you know, just for 2 min.
and then also share different testimonials, so especially testimonials that are exciting for testimonials that have the same issue that that they have, that you’ve seen, or that they’ve told you about.
And then the next thing to do is know what you want. So one, I believe, creating a vision board is huge. I’ve created tons of them. A lot of people say, and honestly, I did at the beginning, too, that oh, that’s silly! That’s just a little silly step.
but it’s not silly, and several things that have I’ve had on my vision. Boards
have come to fruition.
So I know they work.
so create your vision board. you can create it on paper like poster board, just like in school, you can create a digital one and have it as your desktop background. You can create one on your Instagram and have different pictures, and then you have your
like 8 or 9 little squares or 12 squares, and then screenshot that, and make that your background on your phone. Every time you look at your phone, you see your
your vision board of 9 or 12 different things that you want to do or achieve.
but just keep that where it’s in front of you all the time. If you have an office or in your bathroom, and one of my other houses I had. I am statements, and I would printed them out, and then I cut them, and I take them on my bathroom wall
my bathroom mirror. Sorry! And so, when I would be getting ready every day.
I would read my I am statements to myself out loud
in the bathroom.
and it’s huge when you say those over and over and over right out your goals and your dreams, and
you know, have big dreams right, because if you shoot for the stars, even if you land upon sky right, that’s still higher than you are. Now, right? So
think about what all you want and think like, what if.
like, what if it does actually work?
What will you do like if you start making
$500 a month?
Or if you start making $5,000 a month.
or if you start making $10,000 a month.
or even $50,000 a month, right? What will you do? How will that change your life
right? And what if write down like? What if I get to fly first class
and not worry about how much it’s costing.
What if I get to get my dream car that I’ve always wanted?
And I can order it online and pick up the color, you know, the first time I got to do that I was so excited that I literally got to pick out what I wanted. I clicked all the little buttons of exactly what I wanted on it, and It was one of my expeditions. I bought several of those, but
but the first time I got to do that the first time I could afford to do that. That was so exciting. Think about that.
What if you get to put your kids or your grandkids like. We have 2 grand babies now, and we want them in the best schools
those. What ifs write them down like, Get out a sheet of paper. There’s usually about 25 lines on a sheet of paper.
and right out your what ifs
fill up that page
and keep that, and look at that every day
and think about, you know, putting yourself first like a lot of times, you know, on your. What if you say just like I just said you know about if I could put my grandkids in the best school right, but also make sure you put yourself on that list, you put things for yourself first, right? There’s the reason that the airline say, put the mask on yourself first before you help someone else right?
Because you can’t take care of other people. All those other people that you want to take care of in your life. You can’t take care of them if you don’t take care of you.
And so put the
put your things on your Google Calendar also. This is huge. This is probably like one of the number one things that I’ve done in my business to help me is, I put everything.
every single thing on my calendar, no matter what it goes on. My calendar
one I never screw up, and I’m never late to things or I never miss things. Oh, I forgot.
If it’s personal or business. It goes on my calendar. But 2, you can change the colors on the Google Calendar. Then it sync with your phone, you can have reminders. But then you can look at your calendar quickly over the month or the week and see where you’re missing things
so like if you’re missing, you don’t have enough appointments talking to other people. If you’re missing that, you know, like I put on when I post on Facebook, I put on when I scroll Facebook and connect with other people to build relationships.
I put everything on my calendar and so.
and putting it on your calendar also helps you to be accountable not only to yourself, but also if you have an accountability, partner.
but you need to be putting your time in. If you want to work your business right
and doing it every single week.
and so make sure you’re meeting new people every day, whether that’s in person or online. I remember Jim Rowan. He taught way back when on cassette tapes that, and he would say, Put 2 pennies in your right pocket.
and but you can’t go home that night to. You. Have your 2 pennies in the left pocket, and each time you talk to somebody new about the business, that’s when you move the penny to the other pocket
and so or meet somebody new. So you could do it either way. So and you could do that.
you could do that even for online, you could still have your pennies in your pocket. Nobody sees it but you still. And you go online. And you look for somebody to in different groups that you’re in for you to get to know and start talking and making up a conversation with someone, you know. However, you want to do it, but keep track of it.
Make sure that you’re following up also with people every day. So like they say fortune is in the follow up. There’s a that, and I’ve put it in our group. I know But where
it’s like, you know, 80% of sign ups happen on the seventh to the tenth follow up. Right?
People are busy, right? You know how busy you are and like, think about. think about all those websites. You know that you put in your favorites because you want to go back to one day.
and you’ve never went back to them right?
But and you did it. You want to go back to them. Right? You put it in your favorites
and you didn’t, because you’re busy. So that’s how everybody else is, too. So make sure you follow back up with people
where you talk to people at and what their name is, and keep a list, and when they signed up as a customer distributor whatever, and make notes of whatever ailments or whatever they told you about it.
why, they’re interested, but then make sure you follow back up. So then you can follow up with like, if you find testimonials that will help them, or if you see something else
that you can follow up to
bring the conversation back to the front, you know, back to the forefront. But make sure you follow up
and then make sure you’re also reconnecting with people that you’ve met in the past every single day. So even like I said, even if you do it online on Facebook, you know, of course, that’s really good for it. Instagram Linkedin, you know, emails texting.
But keep track and keep building those relationships, even if it’s not for business, but keep building relationships with people and nurturing that relationship right? Because when you don’t talk to somebody for 10 years. And then all of a sudden, it’s like.
Hey, how you doing? I gosh! I haven’t seen you in so long, you know. I got this new opportunity. Blah blah blah blah blah, and they tune the rest of it out right, because that’s the only time you ever talk to them right like I’m sure I know I have some people like this that they only call me.
or private message me to follow up when they’ve joined a new company. and so don’t be that person connect with people at different times. One huge way I like to do is.
I say, happy birthday to everybody on messenger. Every day that comes up on my Facebook.
And so that’s not huge. But that makes it where I’m at least talking to everybody at least once a year. I also download my Facebook contacts, and I go through a couple of those every day.
And just I go to their page. I like something I read something. I might comment on something, and I might message them something. But that way, because you know the Facebook algorithms, they always change things. And who knows who you get to see when you get to see it. You know I don’t want to leave that to Facebook. I want to make sure that I keep my relationships up and keep them up to date.
And so there’s a quote that I heard one time it says there’s no freed and your lack of discipline. So when you’re disciplined, your life is fun because you’ve got it planned out, and you’ve got everything has a place. So you know, like I said before, putting everything on your calendar, no matter what, whether it’s personal or business, because then you can keep track
if you’re afraid of Also like if you’re afraid of getting more money. So some people have that fear.
Some people think that you know the root of all the root of money is evil, and but it’s not. It’s the love of the money. But the thing is, you know, there’s nothing bad with money and people that get more money
it just whatever they are on their insides, like your integrity and your character.
the more money you get, whatever that
of what you have on the inside
magnified. And so if you’re really a good person, you’re gonna do more with that money
right? And so, like one of the things I do is, I have these cards with these cute poems that I send to myself, and I keep a couple of my purse all the time, and when we go out to restaurants, and
I just kind of let God tell me. and a lot of times I will pay my bill. I’ll leave a good tip. and then I’ll take a $20 bill out of my wallet, or a hundred dollar bill, and whatever I decide at that
time, and I’ll stick it in one of those cards, and I’ll just leave it on the table. And so and I tip really well, anyway. But it’s just like one of those things that you can do extra. When you do have extra money you can help other people. And so, you know, there’s all kinds of things you can do. There’s all you know, a gazillion charities out there right. And there’s always people that need things that you can always do. So.
you know you can use your money for that if you want to, you can start a charity even. But the thing is.
you know, don’t. Don’t think that having money is going to make you a bad person, because that’s not true.
And then also don’t think that people are judging you.
So make that post make that video
talk to whoever you’ve been afraid to.
because the number one person that’s judging you is you? And so everyone else, they’re busy judging theirself, too.
So. And still, if they’re going to judge you, then
give them something to judge you for. Get busy, go to work, make a difference in people’s lives, and
you know the stories of success that you get
is going to help you. But it’s going to make a difference. And if those certain people are judging you for that.
Don’t worry about it, because you know that you’re out there helping people. So if you totally believe in your product or your service, or whatever you’re selling, then go out and tell other people right? Because why keep it to yourself.
