do something

It can be overwhelming.  Being your own boss will offer you moments of self doubt, crushing stress and frustration.  BUT…  but there’s also excitement, adventures, new possibilities and a whole lot of clapping and smiling when you achieve success.

You may not be able to quit your job today or follow every direct sales lead that comes your way, but every day contains within it countless opportunities, all waiting to see what you will do.

Theses are the choices that will make all the difference in your business.  They are the things that will determine your current level of success and your likelihood of you achieving your goals in the future.

So, WHAT IF?  What if you make some changes today and stick to them?  WHAT IF?  

Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunities.

To get started:

1. Stop thinking and stopping there.  Getting a good idea is NOT enough. Write down all of your ideas, right when you have them.  Then, put them on your calendar and make them happen.

2. Challenge your beliefs about what you can and can’t do. You are better than you think you are.  Yeah, you really are that good!

3. Challenge your ideas about how things work. Sometimes when you decide how things should be you limit your ability to see how they CAN BE.  Take a look at how others ‘do the business’ and see which things you think you could try to adopt in to your day to day business plans.

4. Have a vision, a dream, a goal.  Write down your goals.  “I will… by this date…”  Then create a vision board and put on it those things that will be visible you when you achieve your goals.  (Directions for creating a vision board can be found in the search on this blog.)

5. Look for opportunities in every failure.  Avoid the victim mentality, everything that happens, whether to-you or by-you is an opportunity. Yes, EVERYTHING!  Change your attitude and start LOOKING for the opportunity in EVERYTHING.

6. Remove something from your life that doesn’t serve you.  Make room for something better and new.   These can be small things, like a cluttered work space or big things like a business partner that is holding you back.  Either way, take the time to evaluate those things that you let in to your business and make room for new things that will encourage growth.

7. Commit to something.  You know those things that you always say you’ll do but you never seem to start start—start them.  Go, right now, GO!  Write it on your calendar and figure out how to make it happen.  Take the first step right now.

8. DON’T think about what you DON’t want. DO think about what you DO want. Shift your energy from complaining, worrying and waisting time to doing, taking action and achieving.

9. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Positive energy creates positive results.  Enough said.

10. Self Improvement is a sign of growth and intelligence.  Anytime you improve your habits, you pave the path for personal excellence.

11. Forgive your self and others.  Let go of grudges. Removing barrier opens doors.

Think about it, these are people that you are going to have direct, personal contact and they might even turn in to potential customers and who knows, you might become their customer too, or maybe you will exchange referrals.

Trending Topics in Direct Sales

Posted on September 18, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Results, Get Your Energy Flowing, Getting the Job Done, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , |

Direct selling is certainly a classic sales method and given the reach of the Internet in the business world, the approach to direct selling has a larger reach than ever before.

TOPIC: The debate is on!!! Coffee shop or online blog? Door to door or email contact list? Typical meeting or online chat? How’s a poor marketer to decide? It used to be that “Face Time” with prospects through all stages of a sales cycle was the only way. It was was tried and true, but with all the gadgets used today, “Shopper” no longer seem to value the antiquated ritual.  It seems that “Face Time” may no longer be necessary at all.

More often than not, sales go through – online without any direct contact at all. Independent Sales reps can now use the Web to conduct product demonstrations, hold multi-person sales trending topics thurspresentations, all kinds of things that help them connect with their audience.

Here’s just an example:
For many top recruiters, email has replaced the phone as a primary method of reaching out to contact new prospective customers for the first time. The traditionalist would say this selling tactic is bad even though it brings down the cost of doing business and takes less time, but sales don’t lie. TODAY’S TOP SELLERS IN EVERY DIRECT SALES COMPANY are the ones with a strong online presence and a long email contact list.

PROBLEM: There is one pit fall that online marketers face -ISOLATION- working in isolation tends to make reps less productive than if they work in groups, even small ones, where they can feed off each others momentum.

SOLUTION: Form a team that can share sales strategies. The best ones are social clubs for entrepreneurs and sales professionals that to help them learn how to get good at sales and to have fun doing it. There should be no sales “gurus” or “experts” in these groups. Let every leader show off and share their smart. Ambitious people will have a lot to share and will help the whole group work hard to reach their goals. Having FUN is what will keep the motivation engine revving.

How Can You Start Growing Your Direct Sales Business Today

Posted on December 17, 2013. Filed under: Beleif, Direct Sales Tips, Get Your Energy Flowing, How To Do The Business, How to Make It, Inspiration, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Tips for your business | Tags: , |

Help someone else!

It will take a little soul searching and a little self improvement.  But, reaching out and helping someone else is the single most inportant thing you can do TODAY to grow your business.

Recently, I listened to Steve Jobs autobiographer talk about what kind of leader Steve Jobs had been.  He said that Steve was a brutally honest leader.  He encouraged Positive Attitudes, never let A players slack and never waisted too much time on B Players. He Pushed Day Dreamers, to Take Chances and to turn Dreams in to getting stuff done!   Here is what Steven Tobak wrote about Successful Business Entrepreneurs:

“You won’t achieve the American Dream by dreaming”

(Source: MoneyWatch)  COMMENTARY. We live in volatile times where viewpoints are highly polarized. The way people see business in America is no exception. Lately, it seems as if management commentary is either feel-good fluff or anti-business rhetoric.

Of course, neither extreme relates very well to the realities of the business world, which makes it all the more frustrating for those of you seeking to advance your career through meaningful insight.

Speaking of which, one of the key insights you’ll learn sooner or later is not to trust conventional wisdom. If you don’t take chances and challenge the status quo, you won’t get anywhere. So you should probably avoid or at least challenge extreme thinking. In other words, don’t drink the Kool-Aid from either side.

Perhaps the most damaging piece of popular career and leadership fluff is that you should reach for the stars, aspire to the corner office, and don’t stop until you achieve your dreams. Now, I know what you’re thinking: Isn’t that the American Dream, start from nothing and become a big-time success?

Absolutely, but you won’t achieve the American Dream by dreaming. You’ll achieve it by doing. achieve dreams

You see, successful executives and business leaders aren’t typically driven by high aspirations. They didn’t get to where they are by walking around with their heads in the clouds. They got there by putting one foot in front of the other and getting stuff done.

And they did it for one or more of these four reasons: because it was their job and they had a strong work ethic, out of necessity to put food on the table, to bring a product to market they thought customers would want, or they had a passion for what they were doing and thought it was cool.

Just to be clear, I’m not arguing against Robert Browning’s insightful statement that, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp.” I’m not saying you shouldn’t work your tail off, seek your passion in life, have a vision of something unique, or want to do great things. What I am saying is that you don’t accomplish those things by spending your time thinking about how to get to the top of the corporate ladder.

So how do you achieve the American Dream?

You get there by delivering the goods, getting the job done, and satisfying the needs of your customer, whoever that is. If you get really good at doing those things, that’s how you achieve the American Dream. That’s how success really works. Here are some notable examples of what I’m talking about:

When Mark Zuckerberg was developing Facebook, he was building something he thought would be cool. He wasn’t thinking about running a big company and becoming a billionaire.

Richard Branson didn’t aspire to build a global conglomerate of over 200 companies when he opened a record shop and mail order retailer named Virgin.

Bill Gates did not have stars in his eyes when he licensed an operating system to IBM for the first personal computer. He was just trying to satisfy a big new customer.

Fred Smith was not driven by the idea that FedEx would someday become an everyday verb for express mail. He was driven by the idea of a fully integrated air-to-ground shipping business that could operate efficiently using hubs.

When Ed Whitacre started out as a facility engineer with Southwestern Bell in 1963 and slowly worked his way up the corporate ladder over the coming decades, he wasn’t thinking about someday running the company and, after a series of mergers, creating the nation’s largest telecom company and relaunching AT&T.

In 1927, not only were Dick and Mac McDonald not trying to create the world’s first and ultimately its biggest fast food empire, McDonald’s, it took 21 years for them to realize they should be focusing on burgers instead of hot dogs.

Kraft Foods started with James L. Kraft selling cheese door-to-door. Toyota founder Sakichi Toyoda made looms. Sony started out as a radio repair shop in Tokyo. Nokia was a paper mill in Finland.

I can go on and on, but the point is this. The secret to success isn’t aspiring to great things. It’s doing great things. And far more often than not, that starts with doing not-so-great things. Oftentimes, you don’t even know what you’re doing is great until way after the fact.

You won’t get to the top by thinking about how you’re going to be a rich executive someday, but by thinking about how people may actually have use for a personal computer, building them in a garage, and selling them, the way Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak did. Or by just doing your job better than anyone else and slowly but steadily climbing the corporate ladder from the bottom to the top, the way Whitacre did.

Remember, you won’t achieve the American Dream by dreaming. You’ll achieve it by doing. Your motives won’t be grandiose. They’ll be simple and straightforward, like loving what you do, solving a customer problem, or putting food on the table. That’s what motivates successful people.

Words on a Page

Posted on November 28, 2012. Filed under: Attitude, Get Your Energy Flowing, How To Do The Business, Inspiration, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Must Read Books, Time Management, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Do you sometimes just sit down with a book and open to a random page to look for wisdom/inspiration? Some of my best ideas have come from this little action.

Have you ever tried it? What happened? Did you learn a business lesson at just the right moment? Where you motivated to take a risky step that made all the difference? What’s YOUR STORY?

Heres a few to get you started:
  • Mariah Colella-Slider I do it with my bible… and it always helps!
  • Giorgianna Michelle Goudas I have done this with my book of meditations.. and also with the bible. I have done this not for business reasons, but if I felt lost or confused in general… Actually, I can say that 90% of the time I come across something that helps me get through whatever it is that is keeping me down! 🙂:) In effect,though, this does help me professionally, because if we are not “okay” mentally/emotionally, we cannot work to the best of our abilities. 
    Great question!!

    This one happened this morning:

    I had to get up and take a walk.  I needed to THINK my way through a problem.  I was getting no where sitting in front of the computer.  As, I pushed away from my desk, I grabbed “How To Get Rich” by Felix Dennis.  As an author, he is not my usual cup of tea, but he is one of the worlds most successful entrepreneurs, so I have been reading his book ssssllllooooowwllyy over the last few months, for inspiration.  I am on the chapter called The Power of Focus – yeah ironic.

    Here’s what I read,

    “Only hire winners.  There may or may not be such a thing as bad luck.  But whether it exists or not, it is certainly contagious.  Hire Winners or people you believe will become winners.  Fire whiners and moaners swiftly.  That’s contagious, too.  You are trying to create an environment where making money is on everyone’s mind most of the time.  Losers and winers usually have other priorities.”  

    Those words hit me like a bolt from above today!  They stopped me in my tracks and lit a whole new idea in my head!  Here’s what came from that moment of INSPIRATION:  Problem – Trying to Save the World.  lol Yeah, I work on that sometimes.  

    I was thinking about how to help certain people with their business.  I was thinking about my own experiences in Direct Sales and then applied Felix’s advice.  In Direct Sales, reps typically think, “I’d be happy if anyone joined my business.  The more sign ups the better.”  BUT… Felix and I do NOT agree.

    “Only Hire Winners!”  No, you are not ‘hiring’ people when they join your organization, but you are letting them in to your  business and they WILL have an effect on your SUCCESS. “Bad luck” like a Bad attitude is CONTAGIOUS, and it can suck up a lot of your time and energy – just thinking about it.  Example:  Think about the people that already exists on your team.  Remember back to a moment when one them ‘whined or moaned’.  lol Just thinking about them, makes you start frowning right?!  It stops you in your path. Solving their problems kept you from your priorities – Right?

    Now, think about someone on your team, who has had some success, maybe more that you.  Do you start dreaming about the future when they pop in to your mind?  That’s what happens to me.  Their Winning Attitude is CONTAGIOUS, even when I just think about them and when I hang around them – WOW!  That’s POWERFUL STUFF!

    In your business, you are trying to earn money.  There may be a lot of other admirable things you are trying to accomplish too, but in order to succeed at any of these things You Must, “Create the environment”.  Weed out Losers and SEEK out Winners and you will find that you have a lot more time, a TON more fun and a huge amount of success!

    Thanks Felix!

Don’t Waste Your Time

Posted on November 12, 2012. Filed under: Get Your Energy Flowing, How to Make It, Inspiration, Time Management, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Time Management can be a huge struggle for any entrepreneur.

The key- Don’t Waste Your Time:                  

Define your purpose!

Your priorities, energy, mental clarity and focus will then fall naturally in to place.

When you become really clear about who you are and what you want, your purpose will become clear too. That’s when you can more effectively lay out your priorities. You will know just what to do. Getting your priorities (goals) straight will help you to naturally begin to make better choices and you will know where to put your time and energy.

Stay away from negative energy, drama, bad habits, and empty foods. They all drain your focus, energy and mental clarity.

The healthier and more passionate someone is about who they are and what they are doing, typically the more effective they are in every hour of every day. Having a passion for living your purpose is the ultimate fuel for success. Living in the drama-free zone is a great place to start.
