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.

As we end 2015 you can do one of two things. You can take a realistic look at your business this year both the good and bad and learn from it to grow in 2016, or you can sit back in hopelessness and say that nothing is going to change so why bother even trying.

The first attitude will bring you success, the second will leave you in despair and hopelessness and you will end 2016 in worse shape then 2015.

No matter what you 2015 was like, you have the choice of what your 2016 is going to look like. If 2015 wasn’t the best year then shake it off. You can’t change what happened and focusing on it will only leave you feeling like a failure. Instead focus on the actions you can take to start to build momentum and move your business forward.

So…

What Are The Two Things You Need To Start The Year Off Right?

A Plan & Action To Go Along With It

Sounds simple doesn’t it? That’s because it is. Many times we make things way more complicated than it is. So in this post we are going to cover how to make a plan. In the first post of the New Year we will look at the actions to go along with it.

So how to do make a plan? Take a look at these 6 steps.

  1. Where Do You Want To Be At The End Of the Year?

How many levels in leadership or sales do you want to go up in by the end of the year? Picture it, imagine it. See yourself there. What will it feel like? These are all important things to cement that in your mind. It will help you when things get tough.

  1. How Many Customers/Recruits/Leaders Do You Have To Add To Make It Happen?

Knowing exactly what you need to do will help you know if your goal is achievable. Not sure exactly what you need? Talk to someone higher up in your business and find out. Here is an example to show you how the numbers work. I am using numbers from my company. Let’s say that you need 5 leaders to make the level that you want and that it takes 10 new recruits to get 1 leader. That means that you need 50 recruits in a year to get the leaders that you need. Now let’s go to step 3.

  1. Figure out what you need to do on a weekly basis?

Since you now know that you need 50 recruits in the year, you take your total and divide it by 50 (you always allow yourself a couple of weeks off a year) that means that you need to recruit one person a week to reach your goal by the end of the year.

  1. Figure out what you need to do on a daily basis?

So now you know that you need to recruit one person a week to reach your goals.

Do you know how many people you need to talk to, to get that one person? For me it is 1 in 7 to 1 in 10 depending on the time of year. So if I want one recruit, I need to talk to 10 people. If you don’t know your numbers or are new and inexperienced then go with 1 in 30. If you plan for that you will find recruits. So for 10 people that means that you need to talk to 2 people everyday, 5 days a week. For 30 it means that you have to talk to 6 people a day.

  1. Decide if this is something that you will be able to accomplish on a continuous basis.

The point of this exercise is to make a plan that is doable with the time and resources you have. It’s great to say that all you need to do is talk to ten people a week, but are you really going to do it? That’s the real question. If you feel that it is too much then go back to the beginning and set a lower goal and figure it out from there. Keep doing it until you come up with a number that you believe you can accomplish. It is better to have a smaller goal that you achieve then a larger goal that you give up on because deep down inside you know that you can’t do it. Once you have done that then go onto step 6.

  1. Write A Plan In Your Agenda With The Actions You Are Going To Do Each Day.

This is very important if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. Also make sure that you vary the types of prospecting that you do, so that it doesn’t get boring.

It’s not hard to do but is does take a little bit of time. Once you have done it once or twice it becomes a whole lot easier.

Now in the next post we are going to look at the actions you need to accomplish these goals you just finished setting.

Happy New Year,

Kim Thompson-Pinder

In your business this is a new season. It is the beginning of the best time of year in MLM/Network Marketing and Direct Sales. The Fall/Christmas season.
This is where people open up their wallets to shop and their minds to new ways to make money to shop with and all they are waiting for is you to present your products and opportunity to them. And where is the best place to do that? Your local market.
“But I am an online only person. Why should I work my local market when there are millions of people on the internet?” Good question, and I think that the best answer for that is relationships.
In the online world it is so easy to have people become numbers, with no loyalty. Lose one, “Oh well,” I will just get another. The problem is that kind of business is like a house built on shifting sand. No foundation, and if someone comes along who has a better price or offers your team relationship and leadership your business is toast.
On the other hand, I have an incredibly loyal group of customers and team members that I have invested in, who would not leave me no matter what, all built in my local market. I am not saying that you can’t and shouldn’t use the internet as part of your plan to build your business, but building a core of local people will give you the stability to be able to branch out without the fear of losing it all.
So let’s look at 5 ways of reaching out to your local market that will get you lots of exposure to present your products and opportunity.

1. Fundraisers
There are so many groups and organizations that are looking for unique ways to make money without having to sell chocolate bars anymore. Many companies have fundraising products that you can offer to these groups where they will make good earnings on them. If they don’t make up your own package and give them as much as you can. Remember to always dress and act professional when presenting to these groups. It will get you more yeses.
2. Sport Activities
Many sport teams are starting back up again, and you know what that means, lots of moms and dads sitting in the stands watching their children either practice or play. It also means a lot of money going out for equipment, fees and transportation. They make great recruit leads because they already have a built in customer base that doesn’t require any extra time because they all meet at the same place at the same time with nothing to do but wait. Go to some of the games, get to know some of the parents. Talk to them and when the time is right present you opportunity.
3. Tailgating
You are probably wondering what in the world is tailgating? It’s actually very simple. You park in a public place, decorate up your vehicle (minivans work best), open up your trunk and give away free samples and your catalogues to anyone who wants them. Of course you also offer your opportunity as well. I have gotten many recruits and customers this way and it costs you almost nothing.
Just a quick warning. If you are going to park in store or mall parking lots please get permission first. One thing about your local market, you don’t want to get a bad reputation for being disrespectful of other businesses.
4. Fall Festivals, Christmas Shows and Malls
I have had much success using all 3 of these venues to build my business. Yes, they do cost money, but you usually make it back in new customers and recruits, also if your company has a charity that they support through the sale of speciality products, you can sometimes get into these places for free because you are not making any money. The great thing about these venues is that you can talk to hundreds of people in the space of a few hours. It is not unusual for me and my team to come out with 20 recruit leads and 60 customers. How cool is that?
5. Referrals
Referrals are probably the most rewarding part for me as I work with my local market. When my customers contact me to tell me that they have 3 friends who want to buy from me, it lets me know that I am doing a good job. Customer leads who are referred to you by your loyal customers, become good customers and sometimes recruits as well.

Building in your local market does take work and time, but the rewards are worth it. Just think of the potential $100 000, $200 000 or $500 000 in team sales that you have guaranteed as a foundation for you to expand on.

Have a great successful Fall/Christmas Season,

One of the things I love about MLM is the fact that it is a business, but unlike other businesses you don’t have the massive outlay of money to get it started and you don’t have to create everything from scratch. You can literally plug yourself in and start seeing results right away!

That being said, success will not be handed to you on a silver platter with no effort on your part. There are some things you need to do to ensure that you become successful and we are going to look at 5 of them in this post.

1. You Have To Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
If you aren’t willing to learn and grow as a person, you will never be able to handle success. This is a journey and at each level there will be new things to challenge you that you will have to overcome.

2. Most Success Happens In The 3lbs Of Grey Matter Between Your Ears.
Believe it or not, success isn’t about what you have to deal with on the outside, it has everything to do with how you think feel and then act on that belief. Most people sabotage their own success because they don’t truly believe that they deserve it.

3. It Is Your Responsibility
The only way that you are going to succeed is if you take responsibility for your entire business both good and bad. Never place the blame for what happens on other people and what they did or did not do.

4. Be Willing To Provide Value Without Expecting Anything Back
The way to build this business to go above and beyond what anyone else does without expectation of getting something back. Give and it shall be given unto you. Do it because you care, not because you expect something in return and you will have more success then you can handle.

5. If You Do Nothing Else Be Consistent In Prospecting
This is the most important part of all. If you aren’t prospecting then your business isn’t growing but shrinking. This is the most required action and the one that is the least done. Successful MLMer’s are always prospecting they have done it so much it is in their blood.

If you follow these 5 things you too will have success in your business and in your life.

I love this time of year when we celebrate the birthdays of two great countries Canada and the US.
Wednesday was a great day as I celebrated Canada Day and now tomorrow all my American friends get to celebrate Independence Day and I really hope that it is a good one for all of you.

So in today’s training I am going to go over one of the 7 Prospecting Secrets I shared on Monday night’s webinar for those of you that missed it.
Something that is rarely talked about in our industry is what to say to get people to look at your presentation.

Most people don’t have a problem starting a conversation with someone or maybe even mentioning their business, but what do you say to get them to the point where they want to be a part of your company?
That is where the 30 Second Commercial comes in. So watch this clip to learn more about how to use a 30 Second Commercial in your business.

The full replay is still available at https://kimthompsonpinder.clickfunnels.com/auto-webinar-registration but I am only keeping it up until Thursday noon next week so you really want to take advantage of watching it this weekend.

Part of my journey to success was having someone who recognized my potential and believed in me, and if you don’t have someone like that then you definitely need to read today’s post.

There are times in your life when you just need someone to believe in you. Someone who understands your struggles buts also knows the incredible potential you have. When that happens know that I Believe In You.
There are times when people make fun of your dreams and try to steal your joy. They think that there is no way that you can accomplish it, but I want you to know that I Believe In You.
There will times when you will come across obstacles and things that will try to block your path and you have to make a choice, to give in or become better, stronger and faster and when that time comes know that I Believe In You.
There will be times when everything in you says that this is too hard and that you are not strong enough to reach that goal and when that happens know that I Believe In You.
There will be times when the way is unclear and you are not sure which way to go because there are either too many options or not the option that you want. Know that I Believe In You to make the right choice.
I Believe In You because deep down inside you know that you were created for greatness and success. There is something in you that just won’t quit no matter what may come your way.
I Believe In You because you have been given special gifts and abilities from God that He wants you to use to make a change in this world starting with yourself.
And lastly, I Believe In You because you are worth believing in.

Don’t forget to remind yourself today that YOU ARE WORTHY and that there is nothing that can stop you unless you let it.

You’ve spent time to create this wonderful Facebook page, you’ve got some pretty decent content and there are people who have liked you. And then what?
NOTHING
Nobody is engaging your page and you are wondering if anyone is even seeing what you are posting? And the answer is probably not.
Facebook has a formula called Edgerank for figuring out how much of what you post gets seen by the people who have liked you.
Surprised
I was when I first heard about it. I just figured that everybody got everything I posted, but that is not the case. Edgerank is determined by 3 factors, Affinity, Weight, and Time Decay. Affinity is how connected the person is who has liked your page. So have they liked any of your posts, have they commented, tagged or shared a post before. Weight is determined by the type of post you make. Text only, questions, video or photo. Time Decay is just how it sounds. How long has that post been there.
So how do you check your Edgerank? There is a free tool at www.edgerankchecker.com where you can get a basic ranking on your page. Any score over 20 is considered excellent. It works best when you have at least 100 likes on your page. Under that the score won’t be as accurate.
It doesn’t matter if you score is 0 or 100 everyone needs to increase their Edgerank. In fact it is vital to your business that you do. Interaction is the Key. Social media is about relationships, and out of those interactions that you have comes business. So no relationship, no business.
So what are some ways to increase your interaction and your Edgerank?
1. Post once to twice a day and make your post interesting. Something that your fans will benefit from.
2. If someone leaves you a comment, respond back. Remember it is all about relationship, relationship, relationship.
3. 90% of your posts should include a photo. Photo’s automatically get viewed by more people. What get the most views are videos so you need to include them too.
4. Change your cover image regularly. Get creative. Make then stunning, but remember to follow Facebook’s rules or you could get your page banned.
5. Ask questions. Have call to actions. Ask then to respond to what you have posted.
6. Hold contests. There are lots of apps out there that you can use to hold contests on Facebook.
7. Every once in a while give your fans a chance to shine on your page by highlighting them and what they do.
So there you go. 7 ways to make your Facebook page come alive and interactive. Would love to hear what you think about this. Just click the little comment box beside the title.

I created this blog post back in 2012 and as I was going through and cleaning up my blog post folder I started reading this and realized it is still relevant for today. So enjoy

I had a wonderful interview yesterday with Doug Firebaugh for the Home Business Radio Network and we talked about what tips would I give someone to help them succeed in this business and after the interview my first thought was that I wanted to share them with you as well. So here they are.

1. Let Go Of The Past

The past with all of its shame, disappointments, failures, and negative words that were spoken over you can only hold you back if you let it. You can change those thought patterns, you can choose to be successful even though everyone told you that you were a loser. You can take action and become a successful person. You are not a victim, you are a VICTOR. If you would like a really great, radical, in your face book on prosperity thinking than check out Prosperity Mind by Randy Gage. Make the choice today.

2. Be Careful Who You Share Your Entrepreneurial Dreams With
Your dream is very precious to you and should never be shared unless you know that person will support and encourage you. You have been given a special gift and don’t let some naysayer crush you because they have poverty thinking. Why expose yourself to such negativity. Surround yourself with people who think the same way you do, that will lift you up, encourage you and help keep you on the right track.

3. Educate Yourself
Jim Rohn use to say, “Work harder on yourself then you do your job.” The reason he said that is to become a person who can handle success you must change. There are things that you need to let go of and things that you need to take in. Your thoughts, words and actions must change. Take time each day to learn more about yourself, and to learn new skills that will help you become more proficient in your business. The biggest investment that you can make is in yourself.

4. Find Out What Works For You
There are many systems out there for learning how to recruit and sell. You need to find the one that works best with who you are and your personality. While there are some things that are the foundations of our business, how you do them is unique to you. Find yourself a teacher (there are many good ones online) or upline/mentor that can help you find your own style that helps you recruit the most people and sell the most product. That leads us to…..

5. You Can’t Do It Alone
You need someone that you can hold yourself accountable too. Someone who cares enough to be honest with you in love. Someone who will tell you when you are getting off track without criticizing you. Someone who is positive and can encourage you when you need it, but also kick your butt when you need it. Someone who believes in you and will invest in you.

6. Self Discipline, Hard Work and Being Consistently Consistent
If you are like me then those words do not give you the warm fuzzies. At one point in my life I probably would have consider them the enemy. I know now that they are they best friends that you can have, because they are the ones that are going to bring you to success. It is not one huge action that brings you to success. It is all the small, mundane actions done consistently over a period of time that will get you there. After a while they start to pile up and create momentum in your business, but first you have to pay the cost.

7. Focus On The Positive
You are going to hit obstacles, speed bumps and disappointments along the way. Solve the problem by choosing to focus on the solution, not the problem. Also this is a journey. Learn to enjoy each stage that you are in and be thankful.

8. Use Your Time Wisely
There are activities that will keep you busy but produce no results. Focus your time on the things that really matter like recruiting, developing your teams and increasing your sales. If you aren’t seeing results then drop that activity and focus on what you know works.

9. Don’t Quit
If you quit you will never succeed!!!!!! Success is like an endurance race and the ones that win are those who cross the finish line. It doesn’t matter what spot you cross just as long as you make it.

10. Believe in Yourself
As much as I can tell you that I believe in you (and I do) if you don’t believe in yourself it won’t matter what I say. This is something that only you can decide deep down inside of yourself. It is something that you fight to hold onto with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength. It will be tested, people will come against it, but ultimately it is your choice.

Choose to believe in yourself. Fight those inner demons that say you aren’t good enough. In fact, do more than that. Kick them to the curb and tell them to never come back. You are worthy and you can do this. That’s what you need to keep telling yourself. I try not to repeat myself, but this is worth repeating. I BELIEVE IN YOU. I know that you can succeed. You were uniquely created with special gifts and talents to succeed. The only one stopping you is YOU.

Make yourself successful today, start the journey that will lead you to heart’s desires and bring you joy.

To Your Success,
Love Ya,
Kim Thompson-Pinder
