Along with being an entrepreneur and an author, I have also been taking some time to ghostwrite books for other people. It is an additional source of income and something that I really enjoy doing because I get to learn and write about some pretty interesting subjects.

One book I am doing focuses on the analogy of softball and how it relates to women and finances and it got me thinking about something I once heard the late Jim Rohn say. He said on one of his MLM training cd’s that a baseball player will make millions of dollars a year, striking out 7 times out of 10 and we can too!

You Can Fail A Lot And Make Money

Share This:

So by failing a whole lot, you make a lot of money! When I first heard it something jumped in my spirit while my head said ‘no way that could work.’ It didn’t seem logical to my mind, but my soul knew better. It knew truth when it heard it.

So if you are wondering how it works, it is basically this. You talk to 10 people about your business in a week and only 3 say yes. In one year that is over 150 members added to your team.

Now lets say that you are still learning and you batting average is one out of ten, that is still 50+ people a year added to your team. Statistically in my company (which is probably a good industry standard) 1 in 20 people you recruit will become a good leader. So in one year you will have recruited 50+ people developed 3 leaders and they will have recruited a total of 15 people. So in one year you have 65 people on your team.

Year Two Is Even BetterTweet This

Now in year two things get better because your skills get better. So you personally recruit a 100 people and add on 5 more leaders to your team. The leaders that you recruited in the first year are recruiting regularly and they recruit 150 plus develop their own leaders. So by the end of year two you have potentially 320 team members. Now of course we all know that not everyone stays, so lets say 160 good team members. Where would that put you in your company? Would you be making lots of money? You would in my company and I am on my way there. My goal is to be past there by next summer.

Now Is The Time

I have learned how to easily recruit people, so now the big thing for me is to get the consistency that builds momentum that will build my future. Consistency is the key. It is the small daily and weekly actions that produce big results over a period of time. That is how the really successful people in your company do it. Everyday they are generating leads in many different ways, then converting some of those leads into recruits and then training them how to do the same. That’s how you win the game.

Now is the best time of year to be get your business going. Most people slack off in the spring and summer, so that means a lot less competition for you to find new team members. The great thing is while you are looking for new team members you will also find customers as well. Then by the time that the Fall/Christmas rush comes you will already be ahead of the game and you will reap fantastic results from it.

 So what are you waiting for? Get out there and fail, so that ultimately you will win.

 To your success,

So some of you might be thinking that this is going to be some new age if you dream it, it will happen posts and I can guarantee you that is not what this is. What I am going to teach is scientifically proven and can change your life.

I was reading a book on happiness that looked at it from a Scriptural and scientific view and it really changed how I saw some things, so I am going to take what I learned from that and apply it to our business and share it with you.

So here we go, the concept is this…

Our brains create chemical patterns based on how we think and over time it is almost like grooves are created to make a path of least resistance so that we think the same way over and over again. So if you are a positive person then it creates a positive path. If you are negative, then it creates a negative path. Then your brain does everything possible to make come true the path that you have chosen.

Tweet This

When I learned that it blew me away. I realized that I was creating my own failure by the path that I allowed my thoughts to create and then worse of all I would speak it out confirming to myself that what I thought was true. There is a scripture that says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Now I know that some of you don’t believe in God, but look at the principle taught here. What we hear creates faith in that thing. So if we are thinking doubt, fear, failure and then speak it out, it creates faith that that thing is going to happen and then your brain does everything possible to make it come true.

I want you to stop right now and take a serious look at your thought life and the words that you speak about your business. If you are thinking and speaking that you can’t, you are not able, you are too stupid, you aren’t good looking enough, I am too tall, short, fat, thin. I am a woman, or black, Hispanic or any other cultural group. I am not smart enough, I didn’t finish high school, no one ever believed in me, then you are going to fail guaranteed.

I can tell you from experience that this is true. When I think those things and allow them to take control in my life I fail, but the opposite is also true, when I think positive thoughts, when I speak positively some how I am able to do and achieve things I never thought possible. I also believe that when you think and speak positively that you open up the doors for God to be able to move and do great things because you are not hindering Him by your words, so He gets to add super to my natural.

So if you are thinking negatively what can you do about it? Well, the first and best thing is to recognize it and decide to change it. The second thing you do is to become aware of what you are thinking. Believe it or not we have a constant string of thoughts going through our head and many times we are not even aware of what is going on.

Here is an exercise for you. Get a pen and notepad and every time you have a negative thought put a tick in a notebook. Do that for about an hour and see how many times you are thinking negatively. You will be surprised by the results.

Third, once you become aware, now comes the hard part. Retraining your brain to create new paths and the longer that you have been thinking negatively the harder it can be, because the groves that you have to fight are deeper. Every time that you have a negative thought you need to recognize it and then replace it with a positive one. So if you think to yourself, “I can’t do this.” Then automatically correct yourself and say, “What am I saying of course I can do this.” Even better is to say it out loud.

Of course I do that when no one else is around or otherwise people would think that I am crazy. Over time your brain will start to create positive paths and it will become easier to think that way and then miracle happens, you start to act the way you think and the results follow that.

Imagine you increasing your results dramatically. You are selling and recruiting more, more money is coming into your household budget relieving some of the stress, you are happier and your family is happier too because you help set the pace for your family.

This is something that is powerful and if you truly use it to your advantage it will change your life forever. I know that it has changed mine.

To a life filled with more and more success,

A few weeks ago I received an awesome email from Kyle Wilson who worked with the late Jim Rohn for over 20 years. In this email he talked about getting the plane of your business off the ground. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to share what he taught me in this blog post.

Did you know that it takes 10 times more fuel and energy for the few minutes it takes to get a plane off of the ground then it does to keep it flying for hours?

Now apply that to your MLM business? What does that mean? It means that if you want your business to take off and soar then you are going to have to put a lot of time and effort in at the beginning.

If you haven’t done anything in a while you are at the beginning. Let’s look at the stages of getting that plane into the air.

1. You Are Sitting On The Tarmac

At this point you are ready to start but absolutely nothing is happening. This is the place where you need to decide that you are going to get going. This is where you really need to get your resolve settled that no matter what happens you are going to keep moving forward.

2. You Move To The Edge Of The Runway

This is your first step you take to moving forward. You get yourself out there and start to prospect on a regular basis but you haven’t gotten any results yet. This is one of the times that you will be tempted to quit because you have put out effort but haven’t seen a single result yet. Now is the time to just keep moving forward and don’t give up. It is just part of the price that you pay for success.

3. You Start Down The Runway Tweet This

You are actually starting to see some results. Your prospecting is working and you are getting new customers and recruits. It is excited because you actually feel like something is happening.

4. The Plane Leaves The Ground

This is where you reach that first sales level or you find your first leader that wants to build their business as well. You feel excited and ready to take on the world.

5. Mid Point of Rise

Things are growing, but maybe not as fast as you like. You may be getting tired and feeling the pressure from your rise. This is also the stage where people start to notice you and there can be attacks from those who are jealous of your rising success. This is one of the most dangerous times because you are getting results, but is it really worth all this continuous effort and the attacks? You will be tempted to quick, but if you can just keep doing what you have been doing you will succeed.

6. You Are Flying!!!

This is where you want to be. You are flying in the sky and you have the business that you want. You still continue to put in some effort, but you now have a team of people who are building the business with you and you are getting exponential results.

Now you need to understand that to get to number 6 it could take 2-5 years. Yes, I said 2-5 years. You have decide now if you are willing to do take that much continuous action to achieve the results that you want. I wish I could tell you that you could do this in a week, but if you want financial freedom you have to invest and invest deeply to reach that result.

I have been there a few times, but no more. I have made a commitment to myself that I am going to do what it takes to reach success. I am not going to give up. I can’t say I have reached number 6 yet, but I can most definitely say that I am at a 4.5 and rising.

The question is what are you going to do? Are you going to commit and do the actions, even when you are tired, even when you don’t see the results right away? You will be tempted to quit but you have determine a head of time that you won’t no matter what happens.

I know that you can do this. Don’t quit. If it has been a while since you have done anything in your business don’t you think that it is time to move forward?

To Your Success,

Kim Thompson-Pinder

“If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.”

            Thomas Jefferson

When I started with my current company 8 1/2 years ago, I never knew how much I was going to have to change to become a person who succeeds. I also didn’t realize how strong I would end up being on the inside, and how things I thought impossible then, now happen on a regular basis. It has been a journey of discovering who I was in God and how to get rid of all the things that were holding me back. I know one thing for sure. I couldn’t have done it alone. The Lord wonderfully supplied people to help me at each stage.

I really love that quote above by Thomas Jefferson, but I think that something needs to be added to it. It should go something like this:

“If you want to achieve something you’ve never done before, then you need to become someone you’ve never been and do things you’ve never thought possible.”

                        Kim’s version

SUCCESS IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE. The sad thing is most people won’t DO what it takes to get there. Unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth and groomed to succeed from the time you were born, you are going to have to do it the way most of us have, by working as hard on yourself as you do on your business.

So what things did I have to work on?

Belief

For a long time I didn’t really believe that I could succeed. I always thought that you needed to be someone special, you know the typical popular type, who won all the time and everything came easy to them. One thing I knew for sure was that I wasn’t one of them. I had to come to realize that my perceptions had nothing to do with who could succeed and who couldn’t. Being successful has nothing to do with how you look or who people think you are. It has everything to do with who YOU believe you are and once I started to believe I could be successful, I saw some results which built my belief even more.

Procrastination

This one was a hard one for me and there are still days where I really have to fight it. For me procrastination was an easy way of quitting with an excuse. There were always so many reasons why I couldn’t and they all seemed good ones at the time, but really all they were, were my justifying the fact that I didn’t believe it could happen for me, so I gave myself a way out. Which leads to……….

Plain Old Hard Work Tweet This

One thing I have learned about achieving success is that it isn’t all glamorous; most of it is hard work and self discipline. (There are still days that those words make me shudder.) Am I going to watch TV or get on the phone and make those calls? Am I going to sit at home and design yet another flyer or am I going to get out and talk to people?

The best way I overcame procrastination was to take a lot of continuous action and then see the results, and when I saw the results it made me want to take more continuous action. I wish I could say that self discipline is my best friend, but I can tell you that we are getting closer everyday.

Not Quitting

I spent most of my life being average. I would do enough to put me in the middle, but when it got hard or obstacles got in my way, I would quit. I wasn’t the best, but it was a lot easier that way. The thing was that I longed on the inside to be successful and at the top. I didn’t understand how other people got there. Again, I thought that they must be special and I wasn’t. What I didn’t know then, but do know, is that they aren’t any more special than I am, it just that they were willing to keep on going even when it was hard and uncomfortable, and that obstacles could never truly stop them unless they allowed them to. There is always a way around, through, under or over any obstacle and it those who don’t quit that win.

So my question to you today is this, “Are you going to do whatever it takes to succeed, or are you going to sit in unbelief, watching TV, wishing you were that special person?”

I know, it’s a in your face question and it might sting, but facing reality is the first step to achieving all your goals and dreams.

To your success,

Love Ya,

Kim Thompson-Pinder

I dare you to get a new recruit today. You heard me correctly, I dare ya.

Now when you heard those words you probably had one of two reactions. You either wanted to rise to the challenge or you already felt defeated. If I can be honest and share something with you, for many years I would have been the second one.

No matter what the prize or how much I wanted to, I couldn’t even recruit my way out of a paper bag. Thankfully, that has changed and now I could recruit someone today!

So the point of today’s blog is not to make you feel defeated and if that it is then please keep on reading because I have some good news for you. I am going to show you how to get leads to work on TODAY to get recruits for your business.

Getting someone interested is the first step to recruiting them and that is EASY TO DO!
I am going to give you an easy to use, versatile script that you can adapt to most any situation and then some ways you can use it today, plus some other ideas.
Are you ready? Here we go.

Give them an honest compliment then say, “Have you ever thought about doing (insert your company name) you would be great at it?”

It is so easy that many people miss the power in that question. It is so easy that most people don’t believe that it works and will never try it, but I have used this statement to recruit at least a hundred people or more over the years. So the choice is yours.

Now here are some ways that you can use it. Tweet This
1. Talk to the person serving you in the drive thru line.
2. Talk to the cashier in the store you will be in.
3. Talk to the Mom in the park watching her kids play.
4. Say it to one of your co workers
5. Call a friend and say it to them.

Here are some other things you can do to get leads to work on to recruit onto your team.
1. Leave your catalogue or brochure with one of your company’s recruiting flyers at a few people’s doors
2. Read your catalogue or brochure while standing in line at the store so people can see what company it is. This works best if your company is a household name.
3. When you are at the coffee shop or restaurant, put your catalogue or brochure on the edge of the table where people can see it when they walk by. Again this works best if your company is a house hold name.
4. If you are driving on a small non busy street and you see someone walking on the sidewalk, pull over and ask them for help. They will assume that you are asking for directions and come over. You can then introduce yourself with you company name and say, “I am going around the neighbour looking for people who need to make some extra money and I was wondering if you knew anyone?” This works best when it is woman to woman or man to man for obvious reasons.

If you do these things on a regular basis you will get people who are interested in hearing more about and form those you will get recruits and isn’t that what you want?

So even if you have never recruited a single person I dare ya to try these things today. Will you get a recruit today? I can guarantee that, but I can tell you that if you keep on doing it you will get recruits on you team. It I just a matter of talking to enough people.

So what are you waiting for, get to it. You have the rest of today to work on this.
I would love to hear your results. Come on over to my Facebook page and under the post for this blog post please leave a comment.

Have a great successful day,
Kim Thompson-Pinder

In my last blog post we talked about creating momentum in your business and what that means. We also looked at an example that shows how to build momentum with your recruiting and team building. Lots of people enjoyed the article, but I had a request from one of my faithful readers (thanks Daga) to show how that works in the sales side of the business. So today, here is part two.

So just for a quick review, here is one of the definitions that Webster’s Dictionary uses for momentum:

 “The strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes.”

 So how does that apply to your sales business? For me it applies two ways. The first is to get more customers and the second is to sell more to the customers that you already have. 

So Let’s Take A Look At How To Build Momentum And Have Your Customers Get Customers For You.

 Like everything else you need to start the process and do a lot of work ahead of time. If you are an awesome rep for your company and you provide great service it is easy to get your customers to promote you. I am not sure what the average numbers would be, but let’s say that 1 in 10 of your customers will bring you in five customers a year. So that’s 15 customers for every ten customers you get yourself.

So if you are doing the right actions and out there prospecting and adding new customers and then taking care of them, if you ask your customers for referrals or to share your materials around to get more business, THEY WILL DO IT. I can tell you it works because 25% of my customer base has come from referrals from my customers.

 I have gotten phone calls from people who got my book from a friend or family member who wanted to order products. I have customers ask me to drop off a brochure to a friend because they had talked to their friend and they wanted to order. All because I let them know that I could use the business.

 And then…

 I rewarded them for getting me that customer and guess what? They would get me other customers because they liked how I thanked them. 

Now How Do You Get Them To Buy More? Tweet This

Getting your customers to buy more is actually an easy process, but it is something that few people do because they don’t want to be seen as pushy and that is ask for it.

First of all, if you have a great relationship with your customers and you provide great service to them, they will trust you to make recommendations on products that you think they will like.

 Over the years I have had customers thank me for recommending products because they were thinking about trying it but wasn’t sure about it and by me telling them about it, they tried it and liked it. The ones that they didn’t like, I gave them their money back no questions asked.

 The best way to build momentum in your sales is to be selling consumable products that people use and come back for again and again. So the more products you get them on the more your sales increase exponentially because they will be ordering it several times a year.

 For example:

 1 Customer x One $25 product x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $75 In Sales Per Year

 1 Customer x Four $25 products x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $300 In Sales Per Year

 1 Customer x Ten $25 product x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $750 In Sales Per Year

 Here is the point. The more products you can get one customer on the less work that there is for you and the more that customer will be contacting you for their favourite products instead of you contacting them. Now just imagine what happens to your sales when you have 10, 20 or 50 customers purchasing 10 products each, three times a year. If you had 50 customers doing that you would have $37 500 in sales for the year.

 If your company does not have consumable products and you live in Canada and you are ready to switch then consider working with me and my company of over a thousand different consumable products for all members of the family. Click here to learn more. 

Using Technology To Streamline The Process

Now as you are doing this you will hit the point where there are two many customers and too much WORK to do to maintain them. That is where technology comes in. With today’s advanced in technology it makes it easier then ever to be able to promote your business to many people at the same time. For example:

– Create an email list with all your customers (with their permission of course) and email them reminders of when it is time to order and specials that are available. There are also some group texting apps out there where you do the same thing and send it to their phone.

– If your company has E-Brochures use them as much as possible to not only cut down on delivery times, but costs as well.

– If your company does it, have your orders shipped directly to the customers that live a little farther away saving you a lot of driving time.

– Use social media to promote your business and get customers instead of having to go out and find them. You can also use social media to promote specials you have going on and create some buzz about it.

 As you gain momentum it is always better to work smarter, not harder. What is the use of all this momentum if you are burnt out and never see your family? There are ways to sell more with the same amount of work, you just have to be creative and find them.

 When you combine both getting new customers and selling more to the customers that you already have you will have an awesome business where you are leveraging not only your own efforts but the efforts of others as well and that is a sweet place to be.

 To Your Success,

If momentum were a real person he would be the one that everyone wants to meet and get to know. In fact he would be the most popular person in the room. That’s because when momentum becomes a part of your business you are in for wild ride as your business gets shot forward at a very fast speed.

 In Webster’s Dictionary one of the definitions of momentum is,

“The strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes.”

Just think about that for a minute, let it sink in. How would you like your business to be growing stringer and faster every single day and most of it NOT DONE BY YOU. That is what happens when momentum is your friend.

Momentum happens when you leverage the power of many people versus just one. Let me give you an example…

Let’s say that you are continually prospecting and talking to 3 people a day, 5 days a week and you are getting 1 recruit a week for the entire year and two of those people become leaders who build a steady business too. And say you did that for three years, here is what it would look like.

 

Year One

52 Team Members & 2 Leaders

Year Two

156 Team Members & 6 Leaders

Year Three

470 Team Members & 14 Leaders

 

And over those three years you would have only recruited 156 of them.

Now start to imagine what will happen when you hit the five year mark and then the 10 year mark. It would be explosive. You would be able to live comfortably for a very long time on what you would make from those people. Unfortunately, I can’t give you totals beyond three years because my piece of paper wasn’t big enough to figure it all out! I wish I was a mathematician at times so I could create a formula for it LOL.

So how do you become best friends with momentum and get him to help you in your business? By becoming best friends with his two best friends Action and Consistency and they can be very hard to get to know.

Action is always going and moving and doing something. He doesn’t sit around for nothing and if you aren’t moving with him you will be left behind.

Consistency, well she is the quiet shy one whom you have to prove yourself to over the course of time. She will watch what you do with Action first and see if you are worthy of her friendship, but once you have it, she will introduce you to her friend Momentum and that is when the party starts.

It all starts with action. Are you doing the actions required to build your business? Are you getting your name out there as the go to person for your company? Are you prospecting both locally and online? And are you doing it on a consistent basis so that your business is growing all the time?

In the beginning it ALL RELIES ON YOU. Nobody is going to do it for you. If you are willing to pay the price by yourself at first, you will reap the harvest of many later.

So on Monday, I shared an opportunity for you to get your name in front of thousands of people a year for pennies a person and some of you have taken me up on it.

Well I just want to let you know that there are a few spots left, but I will be closing it tomorrow night at 8pm, so I can finish revamping the book and get it posted on Amazon next week and starting to get people seeing those who have advertised.

What are you waiting for? Taking action is the only way to succeed and this is an awesome opportunity. For $50 US thousands of people are to see you as the go to person to get information about your company. Wouldn’t it be great to have people contact YOU about joining your business?

Can I make a confession to you? For years I was the Queen of Procrastination. In fact I was so good at it that I could come up with incredible totally believable excuses as to why I didn’t get things done.

But it was killing all my hopes and dreams. :(

I wanted to be successful, I wanted to achieve things that very few other people did…
But as long as procrastination was my best friend that wasn’t going to happen.

So I made one of the hardest decisions of my life.

I broke up with procrastination and he didn’t like it and fought me tooth and nail to stay in my life.

It was a battle and there were days I won and days I lost.

So how did I get rid of him for good?

1. I recognized him for who he was. The enemy of everything I wanted in this life.
2. I made a conscious decision that I wasn’t going to be that person anymore.
3. I made realistic goals with daily actionable steps instead of grandiose dreams
4. I started out small by doing 1 thing each day that I procrastinated doing the most.
5. I prayed for strength A LOT!!!
6. I started recognizing my negative thought patterns and changed them.
7. I stopped and looked at each choice I was making and weighed the consequences of them. This one alone really motivated me to start taking more action.

Over the course of time I also came to realize that one of the main reasons why I procrastinated was fear. I was afraid that if I really tried and failed it would prove what I truly thought about myself and that I was failure.

But…

Here is what I learnt as I started to take more and more action.
– Action brings results
– Failure at something doesn’t mean that I am a failure, only that I need to learn more.
– That I can succeed at things.

Can I say that I have reached all my goals and dreams yet?
No…
But I am a whole lot closer now than I was 5 years ago and I have reached some of them and one of them was YOU.

You see, I wanted to help people become the very best entrepreneurs they could be and to make a difference in their lives. When you read my blog posts you help me reach my goal and I want to say thanks.

Here is one other thing I did and that is I made myself accountable to other people to accomplish my goals. They had the right at any time to check in on me and see if I was doing what I was supposed to be doing. Talk about motivation. I knew they would ask me and I hated not having anything to show for it, so I forced myself to do things so I would look good.

Now though, I find I want to things and when I procrastinate for too long it eats at me and I have to get up and do it.

I hope that blog post has helped you. If you need personal help in this area or other areas of your business, I do have a few spots available in the next two weeks for personal coaching. I usually charge a whole lot more, but I know for many of you my normal fee would be way out of reach, so for the next two weeks you can get 1 hour of my time for $50 where we work on any aspect of your business that you want. We can do two half hour sessions or one full hour session the choice is yours.

Just last week, I coached someone in their business. She had ONE THING that was holding her back from reaching her goals and dreams and it frustrated and discouraged her beyond belief. She knew that if she could conquer this one thing her business would explode. So we talked and we worked on it together and guess what?

The next day she emailed me and told me that she was so excited because she is already getting RESULTS.

Sometimes having someone that you can trust to talk to about the thing that is holding you back can change your business forever.

If this is something that would interest you, just email me directly at info@kimthompsonpinder.com

Don’t miss out. You know that success is achievable and you also know what is holding you back. Do what every other successful person has done and that is get the help you need to overcome it and have the business and life that you want.

To Your Success,

In the first post we talk about setting goals and I just wanted to add two more things to that. When you are setting your goals always set them just beyond what you believe in your heart you can do. If you want to become really successful you are going to have to grow in not only your skills but your ability to conquer new things.

By making your goals just beyond your reach you are going to have to stretch yourself to do reach them and when you do that you will find the next level of success is closer then what you think.

The other thing is that you can use the same formula to figure out how many customers that you need to reach sales goal as well, so this is not just for building a team.

The One Action You Absolutely Need

There is one thing that is absolutely vital to your business and it is the thing that most people just won’t do. It is the key difference between the successful and the unsuccessful and that is…

PROSPECTING

Now were expecting some sort of magical, mystical thing or an extraordinary quality that only a ‘select few’ has that allows you to make excuses as to why you are not succeeding?

The reality is if you want to build a business and reap the financial success and recognition that you want you are going to have to put in the sweat hours of continually prospecting.

Some people think that certain people are ‘lucky’ and that is why they succeed, but I love Seneca’s definition that…

“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”Tweet This

PROSPECTING IS THE ONE MANDATORY ACTION YOU NEED FOR YOUR BUSINESS!!!

And I can’t stress that enough. Here’s the thing. Nobody I know wakes up in the morning and goes, “Yeah, I have to go prospecting today.” In fact it is something that most people dread and that is because they don’t realize that prospecting is the key to success and something they should be excited about.

I think one of the things that stop people from prospecting is the fact that they haven’t found a way of doing that they like. I find that most people tend to have one or two ways that they really do well in, but if they haven’t figured out which ones they like best then they get frustrated and bored with recruiting and quit.

So the two mains to prospect is offline (locally) and online and you need to figure out which one works best for you. You can’t go by what others tell you is the best way and there will be times where you are going to have to do it differently from your leader and that is ok. The main thing is to find the one that works for you and then do it on a consistent basis to achieve results.

If you are looking to learn how to generate leads online there is no better training than MLSP.

They will help you set up your website and also show you the best ways to use social media to build your business and the great thing is that they have a $10 Risk Free 10 Day Test Drive. You will have full access to everything to see if this works for you.

For me this is the most exciting time of year and the time of year that sets the pace that will determine my success for the rest of the year.
September is here! Yeah!!! And the question I have for you is, “Are you ready?”
You see the sooner that you start to prepare the more you will get out of it. Things quickly get busy in the fall season and you are going to miss out on opportunities because you didn’t take the time to prepare now.
So what sort of things should you be preparing?
1. YOUR GOALS
We are coming up to the time of year when you can get the most results for the least amount of work. People have had their rest and spent their money and now need a way to make more as the Christmas season approaches. How many people do you want to recruit between now and Christmas? How many new customers do you want to add? How much money do you want to be making by the end of the year? These are all great things to figure out when you are not in the rush of the season. They should be firmly set, so that as the season progresses you keep yourself going in the right direction and you don’t get distracted by other things.
2. YOUR SCHEDULE
This one is the most important. You need to determine now when things are still quieter how much time you are going to have to work on your business. Get a monthly calendar and put these things in it.
Your work schedule (if you have one)
• All your family’s activities (such as sports, extracurricular, religious) anything that happens on a regular basis
• Appointments (Doctor, Dentist, Bank, Hair Dresser) anything that you already have booked
• Prospecting times
• Regular team training times
• Other business activities that you do
One way that is useful for helping to keep everything on track is to highlight you schedule according to what category it falls under. So you can use one colour for work schedule, one for family and appointments and then another colour for your business activities. This makes it very easy to determine in one glance what is going on in your day.
3. YOUR MATERIALS
Have you received your Fall brochures, catalogues or recruiting material yet? This is a great time to get it all ready and if you have kids get them to help you. I know by this time in the summer my kids when they were little were getting bored and looking for fun things to do, so I let them help me and it got done quickly. Then when the time came to hand them out I wasn’t scrambling to get it ready in the midst of all the other things I had to do.
4. TRAINING
Do you need training in a specific area to help boost your business in the fall. The beginning of fall is a great time to figure out where your weak areas are then get yourself a program that is going to help you in that area. If you are looking for training on recruiting and how to talk to people about your business then check out MLM Success 101 and get the training you need for only $19.
Here is an area that many people struggle in and if they realized the truth, they could be set free from it forever and start seeing the results that they want, and that is…
5. SELF CONFIDENCE & SELF ESTEEM.
It is reported that 85% of people in North America suffer from it and they don’t have to.
There are ways to overcome it. I had to overcome it. In fact, if I hadn’t you wouldn’t be reading this blog post, because I never would have had the courage to write it!
When I finally realized that I didn’t have to let how I felt about myself stop me from doing anything I wanted in life, it totally changed me from the inside out. No longer did I say to myself, “I can’t do this.” Now I say, “What do I need to learn to be able to accomplish this goal and where can I find the training I need to do it?” I don’t look at how impossible it is, I look at the first step I can take to start moving myself towards it and YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO AS WELL.
It takes time and effort, but the best thing you can do is recognize what is there and start to change it.

So now is the time for you to get started and working for a great Christmas season.
