You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 272.  I know you think you want and are committed to building a successful business, but let me ask you - how committed are you to Success in Network Marketing? 

Commitment to Network Marketing success is a whole lot different than wishing and hoping. 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business?

How Committed Are You to Success in Network Marketing 

If I had a dime for everyone who has contacted me either for coaching or to explore working with me in my primary network marketing business, who told me how passionate, driven and ambitious they are, I would have twice the income!!! 

Sadly, most people who reach our never follow through on the basic step of learning more about what the program is; what they would be doing, or getting to the point of asking questions. 

Crazy, because for me, when I am serious about something, I MAKE the time to learn more. 

I make the time to watch the video, demo the system, read the details, visit the website, and so on. 

So here is how you can determine How Committed Are You to Success in Network Marketing - 

Decide on your why Set your schedule Know what you might have to give up Be willing to GIVE that up Commit Let go of excuses that hold you back

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 271.  How do you build relationships both online and offline, that lead to business and people wanting to join or buy, or refer you and your Network Marketing products and services? Let’s cover some ideas for that on today’s show.

Building Relationships Online and Offline for Direct Sales 

You’ll notice in the first part of this podcast, I shared some details about what is going on in my life. 

Son 

Move Business 

Share your life and details about you, first, and people will open up and share more of themselves, too. 

Influence is what you are looking to accomplish. 

Influence is developed when you get involved in conversations, and do more than just like something. Make comments that are thought provoking. Let them see you out there, and they will be more open to listening when they see you as more than your business and always hawking your business. 

Most of my business conversations take place behind the scenes, through Facebook Messenger, and not in the public domain. 

Remember is it SOCIAL Media - sports, lifestyle, healthy, fitness, cooking, decorating, fashion - share a variety of things that get people engaged. 

Don’t be divisive through things like politics or religion. It just can ruin everything. 

Know how to meet people out and about, and then take it back online through Facebook. Or another Social Platform. 

Be a solutions provider. Develop your elevator pitch that paints a picture of what you do, so they can quickly see if it’s something for them now, or someone they know. 

Health and Wellness companies need to be really careful to develop a unique selling proposition. No product claims. Never state that it cures something. 

Meet people offline and take it back online!!! I’m repeating this because it is key!

Not everyone will want to do business with you, but over time, many will. 

Try it and see what happens!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 270.  What should you post about on Facebook that’s going to get response, engagement and shares? Let’s cover some ideas for that on today’s show.

Facebook Post Ideas for Direct Sales 

Do you need some posting tips on those things on Social Media that create engagement? Here are some ideas on what to do. 

First - DEVELOP a strategy.  

Most people won’t, but it will serve you very well if you will take just a little time to develop a plan. You can then tweak, test and use this plan over and over. 

View your plan from the perspective of your visitor. Not your excitement in what you are doing. 

People don’t come to Social Media to be sold, but they will buy when they see the right thing, in the right way. 

http://JackieUlmer.com/facebookprofits for my complete plan on sponsoring through Social Media 

There are three basic types of posts. 

Text 

Video 

Images/Photos 

Remember the 80/20 rule - 80% fun, social and non business. 20% business related, and not just all you sharing your products and opportunity. 

Have a business page and share details you post there on your profile. 

Ask questions to create engagement and be careful not to overwhelm them with having to answer with too much. Fill in the blank questions are good. Advice on something social. 

Don’t expect them to stop everything and take a lot of time to answer. 

Videos - How To, product demos an don’t make all of it about buying your product. You can show your products in the demo, and recommend they use something similar that they may already have. They will begin to want to buy from you, over time, when you aren’t always making the sale a focal point. 

Facebook Live 

Use real photos and not the same ones everyone else is using. 

Get customer to share photos using the products. And, don’t use filters or photoshop your photos. Especially before and after photos. 

Develop a holiday strategy, showcasing your products.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 269. On today's show, we'll dive into a question by Kyle, who asks about the legalities of Cross Recruiting, or the attempt by someone to move you from one company or another. What are the Cross Recruiting Ethics in Direct Sales?

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show. 

Cross Recruiting Ethics in Direct Sales 

On today's show, Kyle asks a great question and that is - is cross recruiting illegal in Direct Sales and Network Marketing? 

I'm not a legal expert, but no, it is not illegal. We are not employed by the direct sales company we represent, and so there aren't those types of legalities. 

From an ethics standpoint, what is good moral behavior when it comes to Network Marketing and trying to cross recruit or move someone from one company to another? 

First, use the concept of the golden rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 

Makes perfect sense, right? You don't want people constantly going after your team; that downline you hav e worked so hard to build. 

So, what are the Cross Recruiting Ethics in Direct Sales? 

In Network Marketing, especially for those who are new, it's often easier to go after those who we already know are involved in our profession. It's not as simple as right or wrong. 

But when you look deeper, is this really the right way to go about building a team. If they jump to your company, what stops them from jumping to another soon after? 

And, while this may seem like the easy route to take, it's really not. 

There are reasons to change companies that are valid, and other times when it's just trading one set of problems for another. 

If you have real issues with your company, that seem unresolvable, and you just don't have the excitement or desire, or can't really stand behind a product line or company culture, then moving may be your best choice. 

Many of us have joined companies only to find out that it is just not a great fit for us, for some reason. 

IF it's just a challenge with actually buckling down and contacting people and sharing your network marketing business with them, then that is not going to instantly resolve itself with a new company. 

So, what are the Cross Recruiting Ethics in Direct Sales? Go with your gut, in all situations. And, be a stand person for our profession.

Facebook is Still Your Number One Social Media Platform for Direct Sales 

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 268. Some people will tell you that Facebook is dead for Direct Sales and Network Marketing. That everyone has moved on to Snapchat and Instagram. Is this true? It’s neither true or false, and here is why Facebook is Still Your Number One Social Media Platform for Direct Sales. 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

Facebook is Still Your Number One Social Media Platform for Direct Sales 

I’m deviating a little from the topic I have been so focused on lately which is mindset, and there is a reason. 

When I started this series, I mentioned BE, DO and HAVE as the key components to success in your Network Marketing business. We have covered much of the BE - who do you want to BE in network marketing? Who do you want to BE in life? Where is your business ultimately going to take you, beyond the STUFF and process of building? 

As we begin to move into HOW, things should be showing up for you. Go back and listen to the show archives, shows, 264-267 and I’ll have links in the shown notes. 

Get your mindset straight on who you want to BE and what we are becoming. As you do this, your mind is going to begin to give you downloads on what you will DO to create this. 

Pay attention to this. 

Facebook and Social Media will be a big part of this, most likely. And Facebook really expands your ability to attract and allow the right people into your business who are aligned with you, your mission and your goals. 

It’s universal law and principal and it must happen. 

I’ve shared my story of taking my business online before. The internet fell into place for me because I had become very aligned with my vision for my life and who I wanted to become. But, I was struggling with making it happen. 

I stayed committed though and things began showing up. 

I started learning the internet. Why? Because I was being guided to do this. 

Today, I am being guided to build my business through my Facebook business page, and Facebook Live, Youtube, my Blog and even some offline networking and in home events. 

And, I am paying attention.  

So, let’s focus on Facebook. 

It’s dominated by women, FYI, which of course is perfect for me and my business. Over 1 billion daily active users. Does that sound dead to you? 

EVERY single day, someone in your exact target audience, who may have been saying no yesterday is saying YES today. Why? Something changed in their life. Downsized, death in the family, illness, birth, relocation, frustration, whatever. It’s happened.  

When you stay consistent on Facebook, sharing your message and your vision, you will attract those right people to you! 

Get my guide to shortcut things - http://JackieUlmer.com/fbforbiz 

Here are some ways to use Facebook to attract your right prospects. 

First, create a Facebook business page. This is your “store” on Facebook and the first and easiest place to take people to learn more about you and what you do. Brand yourself and your company and create engaging content and videos. Create custom photo albums that you can easily guide a prospect to, online or offline, to learn more and share your products. And, the business. 

Create a Facebook group for customers and would be customers. Teach, entertain and educate. Notice I didn’t say sell. This is the best way to sell. People will buy when they are given a solid reason. Build trust through education and entertainment. 

Never EVER add someone to a group without their permission. Ask them first and if they say yes, add them. Or give them the link directly after you ask and they say yes. 

Videos are an awesome way to do this and the internet, and facebook love video. Especially live video. Tweet me or message me if you want to see how I am using this in my own business. 

Through your business page and groups you can host events, and events are a great way to expand your message even further. 

Did you know that events you host on a Facebook business page get picked up by Google? Think about powerful keywords when you do this and make it count! 

What about your personal profile or Timeline? Should you be sharing there? 

YES, but in a careful and well played way! 

Post selfies and photos of your family and friends using your products. Make the text that accompanies these fun and light hearted, and not a sales pitch. 

Give a call to action in the text area that takes them to a VIP group or your Facebook Business Page. 

Use the 80/20 rule, with only 20% of your content at the MOST about your business. 

Engage and reach out to those who comment and like, but do it privately. You can comment back or like when they comment, but don’t pitch them publicly.  

I cover how to do this in depth in my Facebook for Direct Sales guide. 

So, you may be asking, do you need all three? A personal profile, a business page and a group? 

YES, and they all serve their own purpose and give you ultimately many ways for multiple exposure.

Your Why and Excuses in Network Marketing 

We’ve talked a lot about Why, and Vision and mindset mastery on the last few shows. Be sure and go back and listen so you are up to speed. 

Today. I want to talk about the power in your why. How do you know when your why is strong enough? Strong enough to propel you forward to success in Network Marketing? 

You know because it gets you off the couch, turning off the TV, and Youtube and Facebook funny videos and anything else that distracts you. 

The WHY creates the HOW. Always, and every time. 

Stop saying “If it’s God’s will, it will happen.” 

If God put it in your path, it means it’s his will, but He doesn’t do it for you. 

He doesn’t open every door, just like he didn’t for Oprah Winfrey, or Michael Jordan, or any top leader in Network Marketing. 

There are and will be struggles and obstacles, challenges. It’s not easy but it is simple. 

It happens with Action, and not Luck! 

What’s your mission in Network Marketing? Have you identified it? 

Who will you serve? 

You get the chance to plant seeds that will grow into trees that provide shade to people you will never meet or know. 

So, pay attention to your excuses. Get clear on your why. Check in on whether it is enough to get you into action and to turn off the TV. 

I know when my why finally came into place, I became unstoppable. You can, too! 

You can learn more about my new why and vision at the http://100WealthyWomen.com project!

I look forward to getting into today’s topic but first, I am just back from my company convention where I had an awesome time! I loved connecting with my team, and as much as anything, connecting with the culture of the company and being reminded of the mission, and what matters to me.

 

There is a vibe that occurs at your company convention that is worth its weight in gold.

 

It’s a great place to get yourself tapped into the feel good vibration that you need to manifest what you want. so I highly encourage you NOT to miss your company convention.

 

Because of that, I manifested some great things during and following convention. More on that.

 

What we think about comes about. There really is no arguing that point, and it’s proven just by looking around.

 

It’s not just WHAT you think about, but HOW you think about it and feel about it.

 

FEELING is really the biggest key.

 

You can THINK about something, but if you have a pit in your stomach, or you feel negative about it, then that is exactly what will show up for you.

 

I have talked the last 2 weeks about writing down your goals on your index cards. Have you done this? And, if so, are you taking the time to read these index cards, and really focus on what it is you want?

 

It works and I want to share some ways that it has worked for me, just in the last few weeks, as I mentioned about my convention.

 

I recently started using my dream book again. It’s been tossed in my nightstand drawer and I have not been giving it the due diligence it deserves.

 

Do you have a dream book? Have you taken the time to create one? How are you going to make a goal or a dream come true if you have never taken the time to get it on paper?

 

Here is what happened recently after I got into my “Feel good” place and began to REALLY focus on what I want, and really focus on spending at least 30 minutes each day focused 100% there.

 

I cut out some pictures and words for my dream book, and wrote on my index card about traveling first class and staying in upgraded rooms.

 

I got upgraded to First Class on my flight and got an upgraded room with a view at convention.

 

I focused on attracting the right people into my business and moving things ahead. 3 people reactivated in my business upon return.

 

Sales are up, sponsoring is up and it’s still summer.

 

This is when you are really in the zone. Athletes talk about this. Olympic athletes learn to go inward to draw on the strength they need to get the job done.

 

Have you felt that? THAT is where you want to strive to be and to stay.

 

When you set aside the time to go inward; to get into the zone, to go into your own creative workshop, and you get into the feel good place, you are unstoppable.

 

Doubt and fear is gone, and you are fully present and good to go. The more you do this. the more you develop that muscle and your brain to get there more easily, and to stay there more easily.

 

Can you do this when you are faced with challenges? When you hear no, or encounter something that takes you away from that pursuit of goal, can you easily find your way back?

 

Find your happy place! Put a note up that says that - Find your happy place. Do what you need to in order to get and be there as much as possible.

 

Focus on and move toward your goal!

 

Develop a sense of delusion! Don’t look at the goal in the moment you are, look FROM that goal as if it has already occurred.

 

Everything ever created was done by looking back. By visualizing the end goal and then working it backwards to create it.

 

Think of your smart phone. Same thing.

 

Think of the Wright Brothers and developing the first airplane that flew. How many times did they see it before it took off?

 

Same with Thomas Edison and the light bulb.

 

 

Bob Proctor does an awesome series on the 11 forgotten laws, beyond just the law of attraction, which we most often hear about.

 

In the law of supply, he talks about the unlimited sources that are out there.

 

If one person in your company creates wealth and success, it does not take away from your ability to do the same.

 

We don’t want to feel ungrateful for what we have, and so looking toward something else sometimes creates a distraction and a sense of confusion.

 

So, think about it this way - dis satisfaction is a creative state. And. it does not have anything to do with being grateful or happy.

 

It’s just about longing for more, and wanting MORE encompasses a lot.

 

You want to plant your dreams and focus in the right ground.

 

Think of an acorn. Planted in soil, it thrives and grows into a mighty tree. Stuck in your pocket, it shrivels and dies and loses its ability to reach its potential.

 

Same with your goals. Plant them in a negative mind, they will never thrive. They will only rise to the level of the negativity.

 

Plant them in a vibrationally positive and receptive mind, and stand back, success is yours!

 

 

So, this week, get out those index cards. Get out that dream book. Share with me what you are feeling. Tweet it @jackieulmer or post it on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/streetsmartwealth

If you listened to last week’s show, you know it’s been a over a week since I shipped my son off to Marine Corps Bootcamp, and we are now counting down the days until October 21. 

And, as I shared in the show, I am deep into mindset mastery for myself and my direct sales team, and thought you might want to come along for the ride. 

I thought it might be fun for you to play along so over the next 13 weeks, I'll be sharing information that I have learned and succeeded with from a variety of sources, including - 

The Science of Getting Rich – Wallace Wattles – Video here 

Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill 

The Strangest Secret – Earl Nightingale – get the PDF and audio download free 

And others! 

You’ll find last week’s show at http://JackieUlmer.com/264 

and show notes for this week at http://JackieUlmer.com/265 

We are focusing on Be, DO and HAVE for overall success in your Network Marketing business and we are starting the first 30 days with BE. Who do you want to BE or become through your business. 

Remember this - to achieve it, you must first be able to SEE it. 

Last week, I started with the first sentence from the Science of Getting Rich, which is - 

Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. 

And, we talked about how use of the word RICH can be off putting, but Rich is much more than money. It’s everything that makes up your life, so if you are just joining the show, be sure and go back and listen to last weeks. 

I know that the most important resource my son has in Marine Corps bootcamp is his mind, because that is what will push him through to the end. He has one goal, and one goal only right now, and that is to pass 13 weeks of bootcamp, and what is arguably the most strenuous physical challenge he will ever endure. 

If he can do that, you and I can certainly spend 13 weeks growing our own mindset for success in our business, and life! 

The first paragraph in Chapter two of the Science of Getting Rich says - THERE is a Science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches; once these laws are learned and obeyed by any man, he will get rich with mathematical certainty. 

The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way; those who do things in this Certain Way, whether on purpose or accidentally, get rich; while those who do not do things in this Certain Way, no matter how hard they work or how able they are, remain poor. It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects; and, therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich. That the above statement is true is shown by the following facts: Getting rich is not a matter of environment, for, if it were, all the people in certain neighborhoods would become wealthy; the people of one city would all be rich, while those of other towns would all be poor; or the inhabitants of one state would roll in wealth, while those of an adjoining state would be in poverty. 

So, what is this certain way? Well, it sounds easy, just put the thought of what you want to achieve in your mind, think on it, and allow it to show up. 

But, as you will soon realize, or possibly already have, it’s more than just thinking. It’s more specifically FEELING! 

So last week, the assignment was to write down who/what you want to become through your business. 

Write it on an index card and begin to focus on it a few times, each day. 

I shared what is written on my card in last week’s show, and I get pretty bold, and it’s over at http://JackieUlmer.com/264 

Remember this - I THINK, therefore I AM.  

Any piece of the puzzle that can change your AM is bold and necessary for you to take your business to the level you want it at. 

So, if you did that exercise, weigh in on how you feel. Was it easy? Was there resistance? Did you find your mind automatically going to the HOW - as in HOW are you going to make this happen? 

This happens in Direct Sales. We set a goal and then we get busy on the action steps we must take to make it happen. Who is on our list? What are we going to say? How will we show the business? 

What will we do when they join? 

But, how much time have you spent on your belief? On your true mindset around whether or not YOU can be successful? 

How much time do you spend each day thinking about your business? Think of a time amount? 

How much of that time is spent with a bit of disbelief about whether or not you can make it happen or a huge focus on HOW you are going to make it happen? 

Instead of focusing on HOW - how do you do this in network marketing, how to you say this? How do you attract leads, and so on, we are going to focus first on BE. 

My whole business changed when I learned to enjoy the journey, and at one point I thought that was the most ridiculous thing ever. How could I enjoy myself when I was no where near where I want to be. 

But, once I relaxed and started paying attention to my thoughts, my self talk and then my actions, it made all of the difference in the world. 

I learned that when I took time each day to pray, meditate and do some vision work on who I wanted to become and what I wanted my life to look like, the HOW began to show up. 

As I shared last week, the internet dropped into my lap once I relaxed and it changed my whole business and life. 

http://StreetSmartWealth.com/coach 

My Direct Sales Online Coach tells EXACTLY how I did and how you can do it, 

But most people will never do it. 

So, for this week, continue with your practice on your index card. Expand it a little. Write out your whole vision for your life, including everything from business to relationships to where you live, the car you drive, trips you take and so on. 

Quick question - will you do this? Will you REALLY do this? 

I hope you will. 

Once you do, recite it to yourself, out loud and pay attention to the feelings that come up. IF you feel resistance, of any kind, note where. Heart, head, middle of stomach. 

Ask yourself why and listen. 

Then, close your eyes, and think of a REALLY happy time in your life. See it, feel it, envision it. 

Then, while feeling that awesome feeling, focus back on this new vision you have for your life. Recite the vision, Feel it. See it in your mind. 

Work on letting go of the resistance you feel, and replacing it with belief. 

Sounds easy, but I promise you, it’s the toughest work you will ever do. 

But, it is without any doubt in my mind whatsoever, the most important work you can do in your business. 

Look around you. Everything you see started in the mind of a true believer. Everything. Someone thought it first, believed it and then allowed his/her mind to deliver the download on how to make it happen. 

In the Science of Getting Rich, Wallace Wattles states - Your #1 goal is to become rich. A person's right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to his fullest mental, spiritual and physical unfoldment; or in other words, his right to be rich. 

Let go of limiting beliefs, and the baggage from the past. They don't serve you. 

Focus on who you want to be. Write it down. Read it, Feel it and allow it to trigger the how. 

I'm so happy and grateful now that I AM.....

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 264 and on today’s show, I'm going to talk about "What are you thinking in Direct Sales and how your mindset controls your success. 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

It's been a crazy time around here as I shipped my son off to the United States Marine Corps Bootcamp training. He's a new recruit, and I've been through a whirlwind of emotions over it. 

I'm proud, I'm anxious, and lots of different things. 

So, I decided to do my own bootcamp for myself and my team, and we are going to focus on Mindset, and the mastery of that. 

I thought it might be fun for you to play along so over the next 13 weeks, I'll be sharing information that I have learned and succeeded with from a variety of sources, including - 

The Science of Getting Rich - Wallace Wattles Think and Grow Rich - Napolean Hill The Strangest Secret - Earl Nightingale 

And others! 

The first sentence is - 

Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. 

Now, the use of the word RICH puts some people off. 

I like to use the word wealth, and I also belief that wealth, or richness makes you MORE of who you already are! 

Instead of focusing on HOW - how do you do this in network marketing, how to you say this? HOw do you attract leads, and so on, we are going to focus first on BE. 

Who do you want to BEcome through your business. 

Step number one is to write out who you want to become. 

Here is my written statement around this, that I shared with my team. 

I'm going to get BOLD, but stay with me!  

And I'm going to use I Am, and state it in the positive, and present tense. 

I am a wealthy woman, and an inspirer of wealth. 

And by wealth, I mean much more than money.  

First, I am wealthy in my spirituality, because it is my belief that this opens the gateway to all other wealth. So I practice this daily. 

I am wealthy in relationships, and strive to be generous in every sense of the word with those I connect with. 

I am wealthy with education and knowledge and love learning, growing and then sharing that with those who also want that knowledge.  

I am wealthy in health and my physical body. I am mindful of practicing healthy living.  

I am wealthy in my business dealings, attracting the exact right people to my business, so that we grow and prosper together.  

I am wealthy in my ability to give to those people, causes and missions that speak to me and benefit from my wealth in other areas.  

I am wealthy in my recreation time, and have plenty of time and resources to enjoy all the fun and joy that life offers.  

I am wealthy in my possessions, having enough to live comfortably and enjoy life. I'm not a "stuff" kind of person, but I like a nice house, and furnishings, and a creature comfort car! An occasional nice piece of jewelry is good, but I'm not a big jewelry gal. 

I am wealthy in my enjoyment of being pampered - massage, spa, mani-pedis and personal care (I do love that stuff.)  

I am extremely wealthy in my ability to travel, as that is my biggest hot button. I have often said I would live in a tent if I had to so I could travel. And, I'll be honest, I like to travel well and enjoy first class and great food! 

I am wealthy in my ability to do random acts of kindness, paying it forward for people from coffee and meals, to helping out with a car or house payment when needed and I love doing this anonymously.  

Finally, I am wealthy in my bank account, which helps allow me to be wealthy in many of these other areas. 

The best part is that by focusing on other types of wealth, the financial side always takes care of itself.  

I recite this to myself each day, morning and night! 

In the Science of Getting Rich, Wallace Wattles states - Your #1 goal is to become rich. A person's right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to his fullest mental, spiritual and physical unfoldment; or in other words, his right to be rich. 

Let go of limiting beliefs, and the baggage from the past. They don't serve you. 

Spend 30 minutes focused on a goal - ONE goal. Write it down on a 3 x 5 index card. Read it. Feel it., savor it. Experience it. 

Bring up the emotion of joy when you think of it. See yourself already having accomplished the goal and not stuck on looking up the mountain and wondering how you are going to get there. 

The HOW will show up. It did for me. 

And, for me, it was the internet. It was the download that God delivered to me when I let my creative mind go to work on BEING who and HAVING what I wanted and felt worthy of. 

I went to an internet seminar in October of 1999, even though I didn't want to and it changed my life. 

I launched the website, created the lead capture, and started writing articles and creating content. 

And the leads and team partners came to me. They showed up. 

I layout exactly how to do it -

Great Customer Service and Being Remarkable in Direct Sales 

Have you paid attention to what is going on in the World of Network Marketing with companies such as Vemma and Herbalife? 

Nothing against those companies, but the FTC has been scrutinizing companies more closely, and specifically the number of customers vs business builders - those who are part of the compensation plan. 

So, you want to pay attention and make sure you have a solid number of regular retail customers, as well as those who are specifically building the business. 

A great way to develop that customer base is with your Hot Market - those closest to you who will try the product, and become a regular user, and share a testimonial. 

And, if they don’t like it, you assure them you won’t bug them again. 

You can either have them buy and try, or give a sample, but often, samples are not enough to really provide a good showing of how it works, or its effectiveness. 

Then, set up a solid customer care program. 

Send a thank you card - yes, a hand written card. Send birthday cards, and Thanksgiving cards. 

Don’t bog your well intended message with something promotional about your business. Send a follow up postcard later, for instance, to offer a discount in their birthday month. 

Have a new product release? Your customer base is the best place to start to share these new products with a sample. Always best to start with those who already love your products. 

If your company offers samples, that’s great, and if they don’t get creative in making your own. Go to craft stores to get zip lock bags and screw top sample containers.  

When you provide great customer value and service, you won’t find it hard to get referrals and repeat orders!

Facebook Ads, Facebook Live and Your Facebook Business Page 

Listen in as a recap from a previous Periscope Live where I get into discussing how to create an ad or boosting a video that you have created by going Live on Facebook. 

Now, here is what I have learned since I recorded. Boosting a post can be a great way to more exposure and a fast way to create engagement. 

There are different types of ads on Facebook, and you want to spend some time studying and getting to know what they are, what their intended results are, and how it all works. 

For about $1 a day, you can create some fast exposure for your business if you are willing to be consistent. 

You want to spend some time educating yourself on Facebook Ads. Buy a course, or a book and at very least check out some current YouTube videos on the process. 

Create an ad, set a budget to test with and monitor it over the first 24-48 hours to see how it is performing. 

Have a call to action - CTA. 

Begin to find your own algorithm and see what is going to work for you. 

The key, like anything, is to stay consistent so you can track and see the growth. 

Those who get to the top get there because they stay consistent. It’s most often nothing else. 

Your skill set will develop if you are willing to put the time and work into it. 

Facebook has a plan to rule the world. 

And you have the chance to capitalize on first mover advantage by getting your name and your brand out there early in the game.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 261 and on today’s show, I'll be sharing details on the Four Skills to Create a SLAM Dunk in Your Direct Sales Business.

Four Skills to Create a SLAM Dunk in Your Direct Sales Business 

Success in Network Marketing involves simple skills that can be learned. 

I call it a Slam Dunk in your network marketing business. And that stand for Scheduling, Language, Attitude and Marketing. 

S - Scheduling. What’s on the calendar gets done. It just does. IF you want to know how you are doing in your business, a good place to start to see what actions you’ve been taking are to look at your calendar. 

We come in with an employee mindset and so taking charge of our calendar can be a challenge. 

What’s slotted in there on your calendar? How many new contacts did you make? Appointments did you complete? Follow ups? 

L - Language - what you say DOES make a difference. Use good success language. Don’t be salesy. Know your words and language for every step of the way. Never leave it to chance. And, practice drill and rehearse, too. Record yourself and then throw it away. But do this over and over so you can listen to how it sounds, and how it comes across. This will teach you so much! 

A - Attitude. We can only control a few things in our business and one of the most important is our attitude. We don’t control who takes the time to view our business, try our products, join our team or actually work the business. But, we can control our action steps and the attitude we have around the whole process. 

Visual Reminders, Morning Routine, Affirmations - these are all key pieces to keeping our attitude in check. Have you heard my story about my daughter’s hair holder and how I used it to snap my wrist and snap me into positivity? IT works. Listen and hear! 

What are those things that will give you the positive reinforcement that you need? Put them into place. Find what fits for you. Maybe it’s sticky notes. 

M - Marketing. When people say they have no one to talk to, it’s because they don’t know marketing. 

We have offline and online methods of team building. Offline, people are everywhere and as long as you know how to build rapport, and then what to say, you’ll be great. 

Active and Passive is what we do online. 

Passive marketing is like this - the podcast, blog posts, periscope, Facebook live and so on. 

Active marketing is that direct contact we make with others. 

People are everywhere, online and offline. 

THAT is the Slam Dunk in your business. Incorporate it each day and watch your business grow. 

And, if you stuck around through the whole recording, you got a taste of Facebook Ads and your business page! More to come on that topic soon!

Three People Who Can Make or Break Your Direct Sales Business 

IT’s so tempting when we get started in Direct Sales to lump people into one of three categories. 

Everybody - that’s when we say things like - I have talked to EVERYBODY about my Direct Sales Business. 

Or, we say - EVERYBODY will be interested in these products or this business. 

That is often followed up by - Nobody. 

NOBODY is interested in what I am doing. Nobody will host a party for my direct sales business. Nobody will look at my network marketing opportunity. 

These are dangerous because we delude ourselves into believing it’s true. And, it’s quite simply NOT true. 

The final one, and the one that really matter is Somebody. 

SOMEBODY is looking for what you offer. You just need to get out there and offer your Direct Sales products and opportunity to more people. That’s how you find the Somebody’s who are right for what you offer. 

When you find yourself in conversation about one of the Three People Who Can Make or Break Your Direct Sales Business, make sure you are focused on the right one of those 3 people!

How to Rock Your Social Media as an Infomercial 

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 259 and on today’s show, I'll be sharing How to use Social Media as an Infomercial in your Direct Sales business, instead of just blatantly advertising!

Social Media as an Infomercial in Your Direct Sales Business 

Have you ever watched or maybe even purchased from an informercial? Ever notice how it is like a story line? 

And, even though they are selling something, it doesn’t seem so salesy because of the way it is scripted. 

It’s really a brilliant form of marketing because it shares a story, with real people and testimonials and you never really feel like you are being sold, but there is a sale pitch and a sense of urgency. 

They show the benefits and provide value throughout the show, and you begin to think you can’t live without it, and the benefits it offers you. 

Value, value, value. 

They show how to use the product, the benefits, and offer testimonials. And, it’s not just the company standing there saying how great it is. 

Think about this in your Direct Sales business. When you just go on and on about it, you sound like a sales job, because people realize you are profiting from sales. 

When most networkers use graphics from their company site to showcase their products, they just look like another ad. 

But, when you get yourself involved in the process, and have your face attached to it, it brings the message closer to home. 

What products have you used and have a testimonial around? 

Create some video and photo testimonials. 

And, maybe sample out some products and ask for a testimonial. 

Or, contact some current customers. 

We are solutions providers, no matter what you are selling. People are not looking for your product, service or even the opportunity. The are looking for a solution! 

How does what you offer through your network marketing company benefit the end user?

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 258 and on today’s show, I'll be sharing a real life story of a young woman who truly needs what we offer, after losing a young child. Imagine Truly Changing Lives Through Your Direct Sales Company. I’m going to share the details on a 3 way call I had with this woman and one of my team members.

Changing Lives Through Your Direct Sales Company 

If you find yourself feeling fearful of offering your products or opportunity with others, maybe for fear of what they may think, or say, I want to share a story that I hope will inspire you to not hold back. Not hesitate but rather offer your gift to everyone you come across. 

As you’ll hear in the audio, my team partner Vickie had a booth over the Memorial weekend here in the US, selling products and generating leads for home parties and potential team partners. 

One woman completed the form; Vickie followed up, and they set up a meeting. 

Now, Vickie is fairly new, and has not shown the opportunity much. So, she used a short video to explain the business and then got me on a 3 way call. 

As I was building rapport, and learning more about this prospect and why she may be interested in teaming up with us, she shared her heart wrenching story. 

She lost her 13 month old daughter just 6 weeks before, and now, nothing means more to her than finding a way to get out of her 40 hour a week job, so she can be home with her 4 year old son. 

Listen in for the details and begin to Imagine changing lives through your Direct Sales Company and what a difference that might make.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 257 and on today’s show, I'll be sharing some ideas on how to deal with unsupportive people in your business! Could be a spouse, a sibling, parents, children, good friends and so on.

How to Deal With Unsupportive People in Your Business 

I’m extremely grateful that I have not had a lot of experience with those close to me being unsupportive. But, certainly, not everyone has joined me or become a customer. And that is okay, that is NOT a lack of support. 

Here are some things to remember - 

It has nothing to do with you. Their lack of support about your direct sales business is a reflection of some fear within them. 

Like seeks like, and now you are making a move, and people fear change. They have known you in a particular role, and now you are shifting to something else. 

They can default to fear, not knowing what to do with it, so they can often become critical. 

Start with good, open communication. 

We can come across as hype, chasing people down to share what we are doing with inflated language and things that don’t sound like “you!” 

I’m big on Success Language - http://StreetSmartScripts.com 

People will be much more receptive when we share in a way that sounds normal, creates interest and let’s them off of the hook. 

Listen to the audio to hear some examples of what to say. 

Now, you must detach from the outcome and get your emotions out of it. 

Communicate to them that their support can come in the forms of being Verbally and emotionally supportive, and in the vibe they put out. 

You want to lower resistance by letting them off of the hook. You are NOT trying to “get them!” 

Ask them to try the product, if they are open to it and let them know that if they love it, great, stay as a customer, and if not, great, you will not ask them again. 

Ask for product testimonials. Ask them to be open and honest with you. 

Practice what you are going to say in front of the mirror so you get better and sound believable and not like everyone else! 

People are resistant to change, and people have fears and perceived inadequacies.  

They hear of others, like Mark Zuckerberg and 13 year olds who launch apps and make millions over night. 

My favorite response to those who badger me, pole fun of me or want to belittle me - 

I understand that you think you have an opinion about what I am doing, but until you’ve taken a look at my presentation and tried my products, you can’t really have a conversation with me, but I would love the chance to chat about it and hear your education opinion…. 

This is not to overcome everyone’s objections or negativity. It;s more to empower you; create some respect and silence the naysayers. 

It’s important that we feel good, we feel confident and we know what to say!

Goals Are Your Roadmap to Direct Sales Success

 

“People with Goals succeed because they know where they are going.” Earl Nightingale

 

If you were building a house, you would start with FOUNDATION, right? The same should be true for your Network Marketing business.

 

We dream of the lifestyle we want to achieve through our network marketing business. And, those dreams are great, when they are combined with goals, intentions and the action steps to get you there.

 

Here are some thoughts on setting goals, intentions and taking action:

 

- Do your goals truly motivate you? This is super important in the process. It’s one thing to say - I want to quit my job - and another to state specifically what your life will look and feel like when you are no longer slave to a job.

 

- Are your goals specific and measurable? Make your goals well defined with dates, timelines and intentional action steps so you can track yourself every step of the way.

 

- Set deadlines. Now, don’t let this scare you. It’s OKAY if you don’t hit every goal on time. But, if you have no timelines set, the chances you’ll miss every goal are strong. Get bold and set some dates and discipline yourself to just do it!

 

- Write out your intentions and your action plan. What things need to happen for you to reach this goal? Goals can seem large and unattainable until we break them down into bite sized pieces.

 

- Write everything down about your goals, intentions and your vision. This is such a powerful process. Create a dream board or a dream book. Put up sticky notes and trigger reminders so that your goal is always right out in front of you.

 

- Time to get into action. Dreaming, hoping and wishing won’t take you there. Nor will just writing it all down. NOW is the time to start taking those daily and weekly intentional action steps toward that goal. You know what needs to be done. Do it!

 

- Never quit. Especially on a bad day or when you have a disappointment. This is just part of the growth process. Challenges will come. Obstacles will show up. They do for everyone. Be the one who perseveres and sees the job through!

How to Stay Motivated in Direct Sales 

Life is not what happened in the past - that is history. Life is what is happening right now. 

What do you want that life of yours to look like? Do you know? Have you thought about it? I mean REALLY thought about it? 

Here's something I have learned in my life and I really want you to remember - it's okay to mess up and make mistakes. You can always start over again. Every day, you can begin again. 

Winners are the ones who pick themselves up, brush off and keep on running for that goal. 

People have asked me, just like I asked many people in the beginning - What is your secret? What can you share with me that will get me to the same success level as you? 

Really, it’s simple. There are a few business rules that I live and die by. It is my belief that if you will follow these business rules, you can not help but be a success. 

Commit to self development and learning. Always be reading some type of book on self development and improving yourself. 

Refuse to get discouraged and especially do not let others discourage you. If you must take a 15 minute pity party, fine, but then pick yourself back up and put on a smile. 

Meet, greet and delete your fears. Take it out, talk to it, laugh and brush it off. Find that "feel good" feeling. 

Be coachable - great ideas are out there everywhere. Be willing to ask, listen and learn 

Attend company functions so you can know the heart and soul of the business, management and the leaders. This will help you develop more quickly.

Seek out others who want what you have to share and let go of those who do not. 

Have a filter question to keep you on track. 

That is it. Everything else can be done in different ways. You might build through parties, running ads, fundraisers, online, or whatever. You don't have to build in the same way as your upline and sponsor. Find your way and commit to it 100%. 

Here are some action steps you can take - 

Decide to become a student - here is a news flash. You don't know everything there is about building a successful business in Direct Sales and Network Marketing. I don't either. That's a relief to me because I know that every day is a day that I can learn and experience more through the successes of others. I don't know where you come from in your past. And, it really doesn't matter. We are all here to support and cheer each other on the great success. Uncross your arms, unplug your ears and become a student to everyone who offers wisdom about this business. You may pick your favorites. 

Know what determines your happiness and your success - Is it the weather? A new car? Other people? What people think of you? What has happened to you in the past? Your current relationship? 

NO! YOU determine whether or not you are going to choose happiness. That's right, here's another newsflash - happiness is a CHOICE! Don't make excuses for why your business is not growing that reflect on anyone but you. Start today to choose happiness, start your day reading 10 minutes from a positive, uplifting book, and then do SOMETHING in your business. I always feel happier when I have accomplished something in my business besides reading email. 

Just like happiness is a choice, so is success. And, it all starts with your belief about your outcome. The more time you spend reading and growing your self through positive, self development books, the higher your belief will be. When you catch yourself thinking in a downbeat way - STOP! Force yourself to CHOOSE to think about other, happier things. 

Know your outcome - What is it EXACTLY that you are trying to accomplish? What are your goals? Your dreams? Your intentions? Okay, great, now what steps will that require from you to make it happen.  

Here's a clue - the people who reach the top are the ones who focus on exactly what they DO want and not what they DO NOT want. Which are you?  

Focus on taking action steps and getting a tiny bit better everyday. Get better and better and know that you are often bad before you are good, and good before you are GREAT! Step by step, tell yourself - Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better. 

Some people earn $25,000 a year for doing a certain thing. Still, there are others earning $250,000 a year. Are they any better? Smarter? Better looking? I'm guessing the difference is in what the top income earner EXPECTS and BELIEVES he or she should be paid. 

Quit dabbling. Pretend like it is now or never. Stop saying - Maybe I'll do it in 6 Months. Start saying - I'm going to do it TODAY. And then DO IT! Have a sense of urgency about your business and your success. As Yoda said in Star Wars - "Luke, there is only do, or do not - there is no try." 

Also, please do not compare yourself to anyone else. This is not a competition and I promise you, in everything you do, there will be people - better looking, more fit, tanner, smarter, taller, shorter, better educated, and on and on. There will also be people who are less of all of those things. SO WHAT! You are a gift and a classic and there is only one of you. If you MUST compete, compete with yourself week after week, day after day. 

Be prepared to change - Along with success comes change, of some degree. Be prepared for this and do NOT fear it. Think of all of the things that have changed since you have been alive.  

Make a commitment to yourself to do one thing which seems beyond your present ability or comfort level. Make a public commitment so that it is out there and you'll be more inclined to see it through.  

Adopt the 5 simple steps for Success - Get into Network Marketing. There will be a day when it gets into you and these are not always (and rarely are) on the same day. When Network Marketing gets into you, you will be the success that you can and deserve to be. 

Use the products - KNOW your product inside and out. 

Recruit People - this is not difficult. You only need 5 or ten active distributors to begin reaching long lasting residual income.  

Attend all company meetings and functions - this is a very serious statement. You must associate with like minded people who share your same goals and enthusiasm. Get yourself around people willing to teach you what they have done and how they have done it.  

Have fun - this is mandatory. Who wants to join a stuffy, boring business? Not me! I want to be where the fun people are and with the fun people making money. Make your business fun and not stressful. Don't make it seem like work but make it something you LOVE! 

Find out what your purpose is in this business. Find out what your purpose is as a leader.  

For me, personally, I love sharing the message of creating your own experience and abundance in this lifetime.  

Focus only on success results. Learn from any perceived non successful ventures. 

Pay attention to where you are focusing. Pay attention to the thoughts you think and the words you speak. 

Pay attention to what follows - I AM - 

I Am tired, I AM Mad, I am not as good as others, I am not capable of making this work. 

Yuck, what a downer. Does this sound better - 

I may have had a slow start, but I am capable of doing this and going it in a great way. 

I may be tired, but I am going to make 2 more phone calls. 

I may have gotten mad, but I am going to say I am sorry and lift that person up. 

I am as good as anyone else and worthy of the success I want. 

Copy things that work for others. Your business will grow much faster when others can see and feel all of the fun you are having. 

And, you'll always work harder when you are having fun. 

Develop, understand and maintain an attitude that propels you forward into growing an organization that you can manage and lead.  

Find those things that you do best and concentrate there. 

Quit needing approval from those people in your life who will not give it to you. In your home, just set a goal to prove them wrong. 

In your company - don't worry about their approval. Grow your check and approve of yourself! 

Do not settle for less than you can be. 

Here are some things you need to have - 

Have personal written goals and review them EVERY day 

Set a personal example in what you say, how you say it, where you say it, etc. 

Concentrate on the opportunity  

Be positive and do not allow any negative to slow you down or influence your thinking 

Teach others what you know 

Spend a minimum of 50 hours a month building yourself a future and a lifestyle 

Make at least a one year commitment, with action steps in place 

Commit to CANI 

Persist until you succeed. You can't succeed if you quit 

Get committed, stay committed and go for it!

There are many myths associated with Direct Sales and Network Marketing, and you may even be guilty of repeating some of them. If you know them, and understand why they are misleading, you’ll know to avoid them and set yourself apart.

Direct Sales Myths and How to Avoid Them 

Myth 1 in Direct Sales - Network Marketing is easy - it’s simple, but it is NOT easy. Yes, it’s easy to join and sign up, pull out that credit card. But not so easy to work, as we get our mental junk in the way! Telling people it is easy is a sure way to get them to quit at the first challenge. 

Myth 2 in Direct Sales - Anyone can do it. Yes, anyone can join, but it takes a special type of person to have the tenacity to see the job through. And, success stories in hundreds of companies over decades has proven that it’s not your background, education, where you are from, etc, that determines your success. 

Myth 3 in Direct Sales - You only need 2 or 3 people. Now, it is true that it is usually only 2 or 3 people who account for 80% of your income, but it may take 10, 20, 50, 100 or several 100 to find those 2 to 3. We don’t know when they will come in, but if you stick with it, the leaders will show up. 

Myth 4 in Direct Sales - Just talk to your family and friends. This is a great starting point, and is important, but we must expand from there. That’s why we make a list of 100-200 to BEGIN WITH! 

Myth 5 in Direct Sales - You can make bug money quickly. Well, it CAN happen but seldom does, so why frustrate people from the start. When you buy a McDonald’s franchise, and drop $1 million, they tell you that you will not be making a profit for 2-5 years. So, why do we want to make it seem so easy in Network Marketing. 

Myth 6 in Direct Sales - Everyone will want or need this product. Not always. People buy what they want, not always what they need. And while you may want and need it, not everyone will. Offer it to everyone, and then detach from the outcome of who wants it and who does not. 

Myth 7 in Direct Sales - We don’t sell. Right, we share. I know, I know. There is no shame kin selling so don’t think that there is. Learn how to create win-win situations so that people are naturally sold. Don’t be the hard core strong pressure sales person. 

Myth 8 in Direct Sales - We have the best (fill in the blank!) - It may be the best for you, but never put words in someone else’s mouth. Let them tell you it’s the best for them. That’s the best testimonial and “sales job” you can possibly do. Ford drivers won’t convince Mercedes drivers that a Ford is best. And, vice versa.  

Myth 9 in Direct Sales - Our products are more expensive because they are higher quality. Are they? Really? Do you know that? Have you had the products lab tested? This can be touchy so it’s important that we steer clear of saying things that we can not really back up with evidence. 

Myth 10 in Direct Sales - There is little to no risk. Why even mention this? There is not, from a financial standpoint, but some people tie in an emotional risk to any business where they have to talk to others. So, understand this so you can work to move people past it. 

Myths abound. Know them, understand them and just stay true, authentic and a good ally to your friends and prospects. They will appreciate you for that.

7 Keys to a Successful Team Partner Direct Sales Launch Success Key 1 - Direct Sales Warm market list. You can’t build an entire network marketing business with just friends and family, but you can get things launched, create some success and get a handle on what you are doing. Remember, if your business and products are good enough for you, and your new team partner, then they are good enough for both of your friends and family to at least make a decision about for his/herself. 

Success Key 2 - Set your new team partner up with an attitude go positivity. Expect Success, as I always say. Reassure them that they have made an awesome decision in getting started and you are going to work it together. 

Success Key 3 - Teach each person how to make a professional invitation for their list to take a look at what they are doing. When they know what to say, and how to say it, they will feel more comfortable and confident that they know what they are doing and CAN do this. 

Success Key 4 - Prepare your new team partner for the ups and downs of the business. Most will say no, and some will say yes. That’s the reality of any business and there will be peaks and valleys. Oh well, that is the case with any successful endeavor. 

Success Key 5 - Stick close to your new team partners for the first few days, weeks and certainly the first month they are in the business. Cheer them on, encourage them, and acknowledge every success they have. 

Success Key 6 - teach each person the importance of follow up, and not waiting for their prospects to call them and say they are ready. Most won’t. A few do, but most will not so teach them to grow a business faster by staying with their prospects. 

Success Key 7 - Teach them how to enroll and get a new team partner started. Enroll other’s by asking them if they are ready to get started. And, then follow the exact steps above to get their new people launched.

100 Wealthy Women Project 

This is a project that I started thinking about a few years back, but had no name or real sense of how it would all come together. 

I wanted to help women create more overall Wealth in their lives, and not just in finances, but health, community, family and relationships, security, balance, self confidence and self empowerment and more! I knew there was a way to do this – a way to come together collectively as a team. But, I did know what that was going to look like, as I wanted to combine it with my desire to have a global business, too. I met and made friends with a fabulous woman and business/life coach, Karin Lehman, who I interviewed on this podcast last year. Listen to it here. 

http://jackieulmer.com/karin-lehmann-life-business-coach-interview/ One of Karin’s gifts is to help others uncover what their gifts are. In December, at a holiday party for our women’s networking group, she leaned over and whispered to me - I know what your gift is. It’s helping women create wealth. Bam! That spoke to me and confirmed my desire to fulfill this mission and project of building a team of strong, amazing women and helping many more create wealth in all areas of their lives. Finally it all came together for me with my Direct Sales company, when it checked the box of so many things I wanted. The questions that are answered through this project - You love working with and inspiring other women You want to look and feel confident and radiant You are interested in Direct Sales, but have never found the right fit You find many male dominated companies are not a fit for you (they don’t speak your “language”) You want to experience more of “Having it all” but are unsure how to do that You want a solid, global business and to work with a team of powerful, yet gracious women You are ready for a change Now, as I mentioned, it may not be for you, but if you know anyone who is looking; frustrated; and ready for a change, but still believes in Direct Sales. please refer them my way. And, think about how this might fit for you, in your own business. Something like this, that is! If that interests you, of course!

Morning and Daily Routine in Direct Sales
 
In my previous show, I covered productivity hacks for Direct Sales and gave you some starting points for being more productive.
 
The reality is that to be truly effective, it’s important to start the day right, for the most productivity.
 
Everyone must find their own way and the rest of your life will dictate what you can and can not do.
 
Outside Job. Children. Caregiver. School.
 
And so goes the demands on our time.
 
So, let me just share my day and then you can determine what of that might fit for you.
 
Morning Routine
 
This is the most important part of my day, as it sets things up to flow smoothly when I start things out right.
 
Prayer, meditation and silence.
 
Gratitude.
 
Affirmations and visualization.
 
Journaling.
 
Health and Fitness. I am adapting this and really starting to adhere to the 10 minutes every hour to get up and move in some way. Walk the dog. Run to Post Office or bank. Beach walk. Lunges, Stairs, yoga, stretching. YouTube videos.
 
I’ll share some of my favorite youtube work outs on the show notes, http://JackieUlmer.com/249
 
START HERE
 
The night before, I set up my to do list.
 
I follow my own coaching of a set number of new contacts to make each day, and they will vary depending on where I am in the process for the month of sponsoring and launching new team partners.
 
Offline Activities for the Week
 
This usually involves networking and vendor events, one on ones and in home workshops I am running. This will vary week to week.
 
Online Activities for the Week
 
I create at least one piece of content daily online. Blog post, video, podcast, Facebook Live, Periscope, etc.
 
I share content on my pages and in groups that I facilitate, as well as groups I participate in.
 
I run Facebook events and workshops.
 
I also have my coaching practice so I have times blocked off each week for my clients.
 
I like to block out my calendar so that I create 3-4 podcasts at one time; 3-4 videos, weekly updates for Facebook groups and pages, image quotes and so on. 
 
When I can sit down and block all of this out and know each day what I am doing, then it flows easily and my time is SO much more productive.
 
The key to this is to sit down with your calendar and write in everything you must do that is non negotiable. Then, you create blocks of time and decide what the most effective things are that you will do in that chunk of time.
 
And, then the most important step - commit to that calendar and the time you have blocked. Yes, real life comes up and gets in the way, but if it’s in the calendar, it stands a lot higher chance of getting done!
 
Each night, I write out my to do list and make sure my calendar is blocked in for the following day, so I know what to expect and be working on. I also use Sunday after noon to do my best to plan out the week.
 
3 most important things in ANY day for your Direct Sales business - Reach out to XX number of new contacts each day - party or business. Follow up with previous contacts. Reach out to a customer or two each day.

Do you struggle with being productive in your day to day life, not to mention your Direct Sales business? Do you wonder what are those things you should focus on each day to move your business forward? If your answer is yes, you are in great company. It’s a question I get asked quite often. Let’s talk about Productivity Hacks for Direct Sales.

Productivity Hacks for Direct Sales

 

How can I be more productive in my day and in my direct sales business? What things should I be focused on each day? What are the best books for productivity in Direct Sales? I have read dozens and dozens of books, and maybe I can give a summary because as good as ANY book is, each of us kind of have to find our own WAY, of being productive, and our current life situation will dictate that.

 

A few things I have learned that work for me, personally -

 

Start with your WHY - without that, nothing else matters.

 

This is the single biggest step that most people miss. I’m going to include why and vision all together here, because I believe they are closely related and if you have one, you can and should have the other.

 

Have a recipe for a big life. WHAT do you want from your life? This is the start of crafting your vision. And, become a huge part of your why.

 

Create your ideal life in your mind. Write down everything you want.

 

Income, home, where you live, lifestyle, other material things, relationships, giving and contribution, travel experiences. 

 

This is the first step in giving yourself the direction you need to go.

 

Do more than just think it, though. Write it down. And then put that away somewhere that you remember and can come back to later. Ideally, make a copy of it and read it several times each day.

 

Revise and add to that list over time, as you and your business grow.

 

This is YOUR vision and YOUR why. There is no right or wrong and don’t get sucked into creating someone else’s vision if it’s not a fit for you.

 
 

Next, Use a REALISTIC To Do list each day. I do mean realistic. For most people, that list will include 2-3 most important income producing activities each day.

 

Prioritize that list, and get the most important things done first.

 

Pay attention to your own peak times and do the most important things during these times. I am a morning person so I schedule everything that really takes my energy, focus and BEST effort as early as possible. This is challenging because I also like to workout first thing. But, I have conditioned myself to work out in the afternoon when needed, and actually, this gives me more energy later in the day. If you are a night owl, then do your best stuff then. 

 

Develop a plan of action and commit to it for at least 90 days. Example - offline networking - don't go once and then quit. Be consistent for 90 days and then evaluate. Facebook parties/events - work like crazy and let go of fear for 90 days. Then evaluate and tweak as needed.

 

Start your blog and be consistent with it. Blogging is NOT dead and google still returns the biggest percentage of traffic and leads to websites and blogs.

 

Do social media in small time breaks when you can't be doing anything else productive.

 

3 most important things in ANY day for your Direct Sales business - Reach out to XX number of new contacts each day - party or business. Follow up with previous contacts. Reach out to a customer or two each day.

 

I could speak all day on this, but focus on these things and you'll find what works best for you.

 

There are many ways to find success in this business and everyone has obstacles and challenges. But, that's just a test. Where there is a will, there is a way and obstacles and challenges are MEANT to be overcome!

 

In the next show, I will cover a typical day in my own business, encompassing online and offline activities, as well as my morning routine and affirmations for success.

Why and Vision in Direct Sales

While walking on the beach, I was struck with huge gratitude to live in such a beautiful place, here by the beach in Ventura, California.

I am blessed by the freedom that my business offers to plan my own day and time, and no one else controls my agenda.

It caused me to reflect on how important Why and Vision in Direct Sales matter so much! It guides everything in our life, actually.

I have recently struggled with some peaks and valleys in getting my schedule really set so that I didn’t feel like my business was running me. I was beginning to feel like a slave to my business and it came down to one thing - my lack of just taking back control.

After all, no one else controls my agenda but me!

So I took some time and wrote out my why, my business desires, and what I want to achieve.

I give huge credit to Ray Higdon, for the role he has played in getting control of my mindset and getting organized for success. Thoughts first, calendar second and that time is our most precious commodity. 

What I know is when you get your to do list prioritized and you commit to it, success is much more likely to happen.

Here is my day - 

I start with my morning routine.

I work out.

I tackle the most important things first, which are the income producing activities.

I have a big Facebook event coming up, and you can click the link to check it out.

So, today I knocked out the most important parts of my day, and then I headed out on my beach walk with the dog, around 1pm.

While I was there, I was struck my something one of my other mentors, Richard Brooke, said once when I interviewed him. I asked him what was the best part of his career in Direct Sales, and he said - It allows me to live in beautiful places.

WOW! That really struck me!

And, it made me reflect on my own life and the many beautiful places I have lived and where I now live.

Part 3 Show Notes

 

#1 The Haughty on the High Horse - never be demeaning about a J. O. B - this business is not for everyone and it can be very hurtful and turn people off from the beginning and you may never get the chance to share and help them understand our profession.

 

Some people LOVE their job and don’t want out of it. So, never assume that they do. Ask them questions. Determine their why and don’t project your why on them.

 

We aren’t better than anyone because we are in network marketing. We have just chosen another path. Stay humble, despite your income.

 

#2 -MLM Junkie - multiple streams of income are great. Multiple Network Marketing companies is not. Focus. Put your energies into the success of one.

 

Pick the company you want to have problems with because every company is going to have issues.

 

#3 - the Networking Tasmanian Devil - how to work networking groups effectively. Be a giver. Become a leader within the group. Lead with your product and do one on one meetings and get to know each other and build relationships.

 

What a great series. I hope you learned a ton. Visit Adam and Michelle at AdamAndMichellecarey.com

Part 2 Show Notes

 

#1 The Social Media Spammer - when you post all about your opportunity before you make your list and contact people individually, you send out a red flag right up front as why they may not want to take your call.

 

Instead share lifestyle photos, and engaging posts that create curiosity and not raise red flags.

 

Take it off of social media as soon as you can and off of Facebook Messenger. Make a phone call or do a Skype call.

 

Choose your “friends” on Facebook wisely and vet them out based on whether you can be of a mutual benefit if you don’t really know each other.

 

Jackie shares that she is cleaning up her own friend’s list and won’t accept friends who have nothing but business info on their profile.

 

#2 The Long Winded Writer - know when to take it off social media. Set appointments through messenger and then get on the phone, and don’t be a motor mouth though the written word.

 

Michelle shares a great technique for contacting those who you have not connected with for awhile and using the third party approach about expanding her business in their area. 

 

#3 - Negative Nancy and Poor Me Paul - we’ve all had them, those who just whine about everything, especially on Social Media. 

 

Instead of thinking - “I have to…” think - I get to….”

 

If no one is willingly following you, you may want to look inward and see if you might be putting off some negative energy.

 

#4 - The Stalker - the one who takes the concept of follow up too far. Keep in touch, but make it about more than just the business. Become a friend and remain interested.

Don’t be That Guy in Network Marketing

 

Adam and Michelle Carey started their network marketing career in 2008, during the financial crisis that swept the nation. Adam was a luxury boat salesman and needless to say, that industry went quiet for awhile.

 

They were introduced to network marketing by Adam’s mom, and while they were not fast starters, they stuck with it, and after 2 years, they had a stable business and were on their way.

 

They’ve learned a lot and now they share some solid ideas with all of us in Direct Sales to help us not fall into those pitfalls that can make the journey more difficult.

 

Get the book - http://JackieUlmer.com/thatguy

 

Part 1 Show Notes

 

Adam and Michelle share their story and background.

 

And, they share the power in having a mentor, and eliminating bills and distractions so they could fully focus on the business. Their backs were against the wall, and they came out with a full court press.

 

Their mentor was someone a little further upline who took them under her wing and taught them how to be successful in Network Marketing. She had a lot of credibility and experience in business.

 

Don’t Be That Guy in Network Marketing - your guide to network marketing etiquette; 21 common mistakes that will label you as “that guy!”

 

Adam and Michelle became student’s of the profession and believe that is a key part of their success. They attended a lot of trainings, driving 3 hours once a month and learned the same stuff each time, over and over. The simple fundamentals of the business.

 

Our whole goal in the Network Marketing profession is to get people to just take a look. That is it.

 

#1 The Sneak Attack MLMer - the people who hide the fact that their company is a network marketing company. They use fancy terms to avoid saying - this is network marketing.

 

“I believe to be successful you must live your life unoffended and unashamed.” 

 

#2 The Lack Listener - focus on being interested and not so worried about how interesting you are. Ask good questions, be a good listener and pay attention. 

 

“Connecting is the ability to identify with people and relate to them in a way that increases your influence with them.”

 

Know how to get people to like you.

 

#3 - The Motor Mouth - don’t oversell people and don’t confuse the invitation with the network marketing presentation. Don’t give out business cards and information, get to know them, and ask for theirs. Ask questions, and share stories.

 

Use the tools, don’t BE a tool! No matter how good you are at giving a presentation, let the tools do the work.

 

Qualify people very well before you make the call. Let them know you are serious and time is precious.

 

How you are taking people through the system is training them on how they will build the business.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 243 and on today’s show, I want to share 12 Things successful people do differently in Direct Sales. 

 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

12 Things Successful People Do Differently in Direct Sales

 

These 12 things are certainly true in Direct Sales and Network Marketing and also in life or business of any kind!

 

#1 - Successful people create and pursue S.M.A.R.T. Goals and they write them down. SMART Goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound. Measurable and Achievable can be sketchy. Sometimes, goals change, and you want to certainly pursue achievable goals. And, realistic can be a stretch in the beginning, but nothing wrong with big goals.

 

#2 - Successful people take decisive and immediate action. Nothing creates momentum and excitement more than immediate (and massive) action. We all know what busy work is in Network Marketing.

 

#3 - Successful people focus on productive action and not just being busy. look back over the last week and rate yourself on how much was busy work, and how much was productive, as in income producing activities?

 

#4 - Successful people make logical, informed decision. Success in business requires decision making regularly. Don’t spend too much time over analyzing these things?

 

#5 - Successful people avoid the trap of trying to make everything look perfect. There is no room for perfection in business. Success is all about getting into action and trying, testing , tweaking and seeing what happens.

 

#6 - Successful people work outside of their comfort zone. I know, you don’t want to hear this, but it is TRUE! The more action you will take to get yourself out of your comfort zone, the easier it will get.

 

#7 - Successful people keep things simple. Network Marketing is simple, but not easy, and really, the only part that isn’t easy is what goes on between our ears. Use tools, don’t try to explain everything and take the necessary action steps.

 

#8 - Successful people focus on small, and continuing improvements. If you will just get into action, you will grow and improve. Each time you talk to someone about your Direct Sales opportunity, you get a little better.

 

#9 - Successful people measure and track their progress. Tracking is so important. At the end of the month, you want to have a tracking sheet so you can see what you actually did to move your business forward. Who did you contact? Who did you follow up with? What did you track?

 

#10 - Successful people maintain a positive outlook as they learn from mistakes. And, really there are no mistakes. It is all about trying and testing and making small improvements on what you learn from those actions. We all have times when we say too much, but that’s how we learn.

 

#11 - Successful people spend time with the right people. On your team, and with prospects is so important. And, attending company conventions is the next area you want to get around the right people with the right mindset you have the experience and knowledge to assist you.

 

#12 - Successful people maintain balance in their life. Now, I have always struggled with the word balance and you may, too. It’s a bit of a myth to think we will always have “balance.” Be committed to spending quality time in the right areas of your life. You know what those are. There must be room for family and relationships, health and wellness, spiritually as well as your business. Make sure there is time for all areas.

 

And, create systems to help your business stay in gear even when you aren’t there pushing it forward. Create a pinch me business with automation!

 

It’s great to create leads and income even when you aren’t there, face to face with others!

What If I Don’t Like All of My Direct Sales Company Products

 

 

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 242 and on today’s show, I’m going to talk about a question a lot of people have asked me and that is - what do I do when I don’t like or use a product offered by my direct sales company? Do I have to use it?

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


What If I Don’t Like All of My Direct Sales Company Products

 

We’ve all heard it right, USE your products. Be a product of the product! Replace everything in your home with your own Network Marketing product line.

 

But what happens if you don’t like a certain product? Or use that type of product?

 

First, try everything at least once, but then be fair to yourself. We won’t always like or need and use every single product offered by our company.

 

And, that’s okay.

 

Know how to develop your product story.

 

http://jackieulmer.com/059/

 

And, when you come across a product that your direct sales company offers that is not a fit for you, just share very authentically why it doesn’t work, and then ask question of your prospect about what they might be looking for!

 

In many ways, it can make you more real and down to earth to your prospects when you are “open” to the fact that not every product will always be a fit for everyone.

 

That makes you less in sales mode!

 

So, if you get that question -  What If I Don’t Like All of My Direct Sales Company Products - be ready to answer it authentically and support each person in their own journey.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 241, and today, we are going to talk once again about fear, and doubt and how this affects everything we do in our Direct Sales Business. And, let’s talk about your “B” roll.

Fear, Direct Sales and Your B Roll

 

We all have fears when it comes to Network Marketing and the business we have started.

 

Will we be successful? Will we flop big time? Will others buy your products or join you in your Direct Sales business? And, the big one - what will others think or say when they learn what you are doing?

 

Do we ever truly get over fear? Even as a top income earner, do fears still creep in?

 

Yes, they DO still creep in.

 

Sometimes, we just lose our way.

 

One of my struggles a few years back was letting the negativity of others around building using the internet make me question whether it would work.

 

How crazy is that? I became the top income earner and top team builder/leader in a previous company through the internet.

 

My team held 19 of the top 20 spots on Google for our primary key word.

 

So, I let doubt and fear derail me and I took a step back from my internet marketing for almost a year. I was still out there online, but I did a whole lot of offline stuff and at the end of the year, when I re-evaluated, my online efforts produced far more than offline.

 

That is NOT to suggest offline doesn’t work or was not worth it. Just an interesting study.

 

Another fear I ran into was when I changed companies and joined a makeup company.

 

What was I thinking? Why would a 50 year old woman be out there posting selfies; doing makeup tutorials and so on? Who did I think I was?

 

And, yet, 50 Is the new 30, or at least 35, ha! And, it’s not a point where we want to stop looking our best, feeling our best or playing with makeup!

 

So, I started pondering how fabulous I would have been had I found that company in my 30s. I would be bold, on camera and so on.

 

But, here is the reality - in my 30s, I was still self conscious and had doubts and fears. It’s easy to look back and think we would be a certain way, but would we?

 

So, what are some of your fears? And what is the root of those fears? How are these fears serving you?

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 240, and today, I want to share what I was taught long ago by one of my earliest mentors in online marketing, for how to lay out your plan and strategy, starting with your most wanted response for your Direct Sales Business.

Your Online Marketing Plan - Begin With the End in Mind

 

The Internet is a very efficient, effective way of locating high quality people all over the world, and even within 20 minutes of your home.

 

Now, think about what it is that you want to accomplish through your web presence, and then work it backwards.

 

Ken Evoy, a highly successful Internet Business Coach, taught me to always think of what my “Most Wanted Response” is in any situation.

 

I have determined my Most Wanted Response and I work it backward from there, and here is my thought process on this for the Internet -

 

Ultimately, I want to sponsor team partners into my Network Marketing business.

 

To do this, I must introduce my business to them.

 

For this to happen, they have to have a relationship with me and be open to looking. I have to have presented my opportunity, sold myself and my partnership and answered their questions.

 

To get to that point, we need to have dialogue. I initiate this through my Auto-responders, designed to give them something of value and develop that "know me, like me, trust me" syndrome, which is so important on the Internet.

 

But, before that, how did we even connect to begin having a dialogue? In most cases, they find me.

 

They come through my own online marketing funnels; advertising programs; or my own efforts of marketing (warm market, vehicle web decal, business card, etc.)

 

Before I begin working with these prospects who come in, my system needs to be in place.

 

So, in essence, the system consists of –

 

My personal website/blog, or "hub of the universe!" This is where all of my marketing funnels send them to find out more about me and my business information. 

 

Lead Capture/Auto-responders – for list building; capturing their name; email address and in some cases, phone, address and other information. From there, I can continue the relationship with them. Your auto-responder/list building will likely consist of two separate campaigns - one for providing generic content and establishing yourself as an "expert" (newsletter) and one with "business content"; for once they become interested in your business and opt-in to that list. (More on this later!)

 

Marketing funnels – how they find me.

 

  So, in checklist order, here is what I do -

 

Get my web site/blog in order, with thorough details on me and what I am offering them, along with web site links to find out more about my business and the company.

 

My website/blog needs to contain plenty of content and value for my visitor and not be just a sales pitch. How many times have you landed on site after site and it's nothing but someone trying to sell you something. Turn off, huh? You want to be different.

 

Work it right and the time will come when the visitor asks you about your business and that is just what you want.

 

Lead Capture Auto-responder forms need to be placed on the site, so I can capture their name and email to know they were there and to follow up. This also allows me to deliver immediate information to them, even if it’s 2:00am. (More on this later.)

 

Get my Auto-responder campaigns done (they are never REALLY done, but get them to a point that you can promote. The "tweaking" is ongoing!) These campaigns are what explain my business and partnership. This also includes creating a “free giveaway” or report to entice them for their name/email.

 

Get any marketing funnels that I am using ready. This gets people looking at my business RIGHT NOW!

 

Develop other methods of marketing - web decal, advertising, offline methods, etc. 

 

Follow up, follow up, and follow up – first by phone, if possible; next through a personal email; finally through your Auto-responder pipeline, which continues to drip information over time.

 

Continuing education - every day, find some way to educate myself on personal development, business education, Internet education, etc.

 

Unfortunately, many people get bogged down in the process of setting up a viable Internet system, quitting before they get to the best part.

 

The best part about setting up an Online Marketing System is that once it is done, for the most part, it is done!

 

While it can seem a little technical in the beginning, as I always assure people, I am not a technical person, I am a marketing person! Be willing to commit to the challenge of getting it done and you'll be so glad you did.

 

So, get the technical part of setting things up out of the way first, and then focus 100% of your efforts on marketing your system. And, invest in ongoing education about new internet techniques. The Internet is still brand new in so many respects so new things are always popping up. Be aware and be the cutting edge.

Facebook and Your Business Page for Direct Sales

 

We’re in business, right, so why not have a Facebook business page, too, right? Here is why a business Facebook page is so important. Not to be techie, but Facebook is basically a closed system that is not indexed by Google. Facebook Business pages ARE indexed by Google, though. This just basically means that people can find your Facebook business timeline in Google!

 

It’s publicly searchable and you get “google juice” based on the content you have created. An active page on Facebook will translate to rankings on Google.

 

Someone doing some specific keyword searching on Google could land on your page. This is especially true with events!

 

You have 3 opportunities to connect with people - your friends, your followers and your business page followers.

 

Here are some things we know about the Business Arena for Facebook:

 

It’s a Pay to Play environment.

 

It takes WORK to grow a successful Facebook page. And, I mean WORK. Every day. I’m going to be honest here - that is why I put SO much more time and energy into my blog and building my list. I own it and I control what happens with it. 

 

Every time I send an email to my list, I know that I have the CHANCE that everyone on that list will open it. Not everyone will, that’s the reality. But, at least they can. 

 

With Facebook, they make it very clear that they will NOT be showing my content to everyone unless I pay for it, and even then, I am competing with all of their friends, and other content.

 

Here is what happens when you make a status update on your business page. Facebook chooses a small segment of your fans to show it to first, and there is a small window of opportunity for it to organically get more reach. In that small time frame, if there is no engagement, Facebook kills it. If there is some engagement, they open it to a wider audience, but still small when it’s organic. And, great engagement gets a little more.

 

You need to take time to identify your Target Audience for your Facebook page - what are they looking for a solution to?

 

You want to define that solution and then develop a content strategy around that, and be consistent.

 

Outside ways to promote your Facebook Page -

5 Times a day - this allows you to get in, check those annoying red notifications from Facebook, do what you need to do, and be done with it.

 

5 Areas of Facebook to focus on -

 

Profile - 5 Awesome Status Updates Daily - remember the 80/20 rule and post about your business in a subtle way.

 

Business Page - same with your business page - it should not all be sell, sell, buy from me!

 

Groups and Pages - get involved in solid groups, and stay out of the spammy, work at home ones. Create intentional value oriented updates there.

12 Step Facebook Checklist for Your Direct Sales Business

 

Ready to get your BUSINESS launched on Facebook? This guide will take you through the basic steps on how to be successful using Facebook, especially if you have never had a business that you talked about in Social Media before.

 

There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. We want to create curiosity, share our passion and enthusiasm, and ultimately get people coming to us and asking - WHAT do you do?

 

So, here are 12 steps to "Clean Things Up" if needed and get you ready to rock it on Facebook!

 

We start with cleaning up our “Space” first, kind of like you would if you were putting your home on the market to sell. You wouldn’t host an open house before you cleaned the place up and made it presentable, right? So that’s what we are going to do here.

 

Your Profile Picture - Is it clear? Well lit? Something that represents you well and creates an immediate brand image you want to convey? And, is it a photo of YOU, and just YOU? It should be, for business, that is. Not your family; a company logo or any of that. Just YOU!

 

2. Your Cover Photo - Unlike your profile photo, you can and should change out your cover photo regularly. Now that you are using Facebook for business, be creative with this. Just like your profile picture, take a look at it from the viewpoint of your visitors - Does it represent your brand? Not your company brand, as in not photos of products and such, but YOU as a brand?

 

3. Your About Section - This is your most valuable piece of “real estate” on Facebook, so spend some time there today and make sure it is a clear reflection of your brand. This is where you have the BEST chance to sell yourself and create interest in your business. The About section is the second most visited page/area of any website or profile.

 

    4. Your Friends - The ultimate way to sponsor others with Facebook, is to begin to develop a large following of friends, would be friends and turn them into potential and active business partners. I call this creating “New warm market!” You start this process by building a relationship with them, based on trust, common interests, and a general feeling that they know you, and can relate to you. It takes time to have success, but what doesn’t?

 

5. Your Content Shared - Take a step back and LOOK at your status updates over the last month. Are they consistent? How many times a day do you post? Can people get a real "sense" of who you are by what you share? IS there a HINT even that you have a business that you are passionate about? From here, you can begin to develop a content strategy for daily and weekly sharing that is going to begin to create what you want - INTEREST and QUESTIONS. Make sure the content you share doesn't alienate anyone who might be right for your business and my suggestion - avoid heated topics!

 

  6. Friends Inventory - Take an Inventory of Your "Friends." For some of you, this will be easy, as you probably really KNOW most of the people you are friends with, in the REAL, offline world. For others, who have been in the home business world for awhile, you may be like me - you have a bit of a mess on your hands, and have no CLUE who some of these people are. Back in the beginning of Facebook, quantity was king and we thought that the more friends we had, the better for business, right? WRONG! It's okay to unfriend people where there really isn't a win-win, and you don't really know them.

 

7. Reconnect With Friends - Begin to reconnect with your friends on Facebook. Obviously, some of them you connect with all of the time, but who on your list have you not reached out to for awhile. Set a goal to reach out to 3 people each day. Not about your business, but just to check in and see how they are doing; what they are doing; and catch up. Before you private message them, go to their profile and scroll down and see what’s been going on. Make a comment about recent events when you message them so they know you took the time and are truly interested.

 

8. Create New Warm Market - Add Friends! One of the first things you’ll want to start working on is growing your list of contacts on Facebook. We are limited to having 5000 friends, and the magic number to REALLY begin to see things happen is around 2000. There are a few ways to begin to grow your list of friends. One, find friends of your current friends. Who is also commenting on the status updates of your friends? Who posts stuff on your friends wall? Who are friends of your friends in your local community?Another great way to find people are groups.

 

9. Consistency - I recommend a minimum of 5 updates a day, and remember the 80/20 rule. 80% social, fun, engaging and so on. 20% business related. Too much business and your audience will tune you out. Find the right mix and do your business posts in a way that create curiosity and you will catch those people about your business when the time is right. Even with 4000 friends, maybe only 10% are active regularly and going to see what you share. So, if you only have 200 friends, that's 20 people. 500 friends and that's still only 50. That is why it is SO important to add to your friends list, and market daily! That is goal #1!!!

 

10. Friends Lists - A feature few people use is the “Lists” feature for your friends. You can categorize your Friends into lists, based on how you know them and common interests and then it is much easier to check in, as well as make custom status updates that can only be seen by the friends/lists who you want it shown to. And, this is a great way to keep up with all different friends and not just what Facebook chooses to show you. Start by clicking the FRIENDS link to the left in your newsfeed or “home link.” As far as I know, you can not create or view friend’s lists on a device - only on a computer. Let me know if you know a way around this.     11. Sharing Your Business - At some point, you will want to begin sharing light details about your business. I call Facebook the “Cheers” of the internet, like the 90s sitcom. You walk into the bar, everyone knows your name; you have some good friends, and some acquaintances and you are all sitting around sharing LIFE. LIFE includes fun, social, entertainment, and your career or business. The key is to keep it LIGHT when sharing business. I use the 80/20 rule, meaning 80% social and fun, 20% business and even business, I keep it subtle, and indirect. That means I never say - JOIN MY TEAM; or anything salesy. Acknowledge team promotions; share photos of you out working your business; shoot a video of why you joined, and so on. Then, begin to incorporate these types of photos into your daily/weekly updates.

 
 

12. Daily Strategy - Now that you are in a groove with Facebook, and your profile is set up the way you want it, and designed to work as a “calling card” for you and your business (meaning when someone clicks to your About section, they get a view into who you are, and have the chance to click and learn more about your business) it’s time to develop a daily strategy of updates and engagement. Post 3-5 times daily, and mix it up. Some fun, some social, some life stuff and some business sprinkled in. And, make sure you spend time in the newsfeed and in your friend lists commenting on status updates of others. This helps you “trick” the Facebook algorithm to some extent. Visit the groups that you are aligned with and where you can build true friendships. Reach out to 3 people a day, just to reconnect.

You may have a "Mean Janeen" in your life, too!

Haters in Your Direct Sales Business

 

Who's your "Mean Janeen?" If you've ever heard me share my story of struggle in the early days, you may remember my "Evil Neighbor", Mean Janeen.

 

In a nutshell, I finally got up the courage to go next door, ring her doorbell, carrying my "prospecting packet" for my business to share with her. Oh, I am SURE I said way too much when she answered the door, and I opened my mouth to talk about my exciting new opportunity, and maybe she  would want to explore the possibilities?

 

She - SERIOUSLY - threw her head back, CACKLED in a very Halloween Witchy sounding laugh, slapped her knee and said - YOU got involved in one of those? They NEVER work....BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

 

I don't remember what she said after that because my ears started ringing, I felt a white hot rush of anger and humiliation rise up and she began to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher to me - WAAA WAAA WAAA.

 

I managed to slink back home and stew in my self pity for a few hours, and when I finally "Snapped out of it", I made a decision RIGHT there.

 

I made a decision to PROVE HER WRONG. And that is EXACTLY WHAT I DID.

 

I let a negative experience fuel me with drive and ambition.

 

I moved out of that neighborhood, and moved on from that era of my life. And, I moved on from her. BUT, I have never moved on from the power she ultimately provided me with through her own short sightedness.

 

Funny thing, she still lives there, on Divorce #3, one kid had some drug trouble, and her daughter has issues, too. I know that sounds like I am judging her. I'm not really. I have no need to. But isn't it ironic....

 

Who's YOUR Mean Janeen? Let's work together to let ALL of those "MJ" in our lives fuel our drive and passion!

Wrap Up on the Book Go Pro in Your Network Marketing Business 

 

Notes From Today’s Show:

 

Anything worthwhile takes time, and even if you aren’t a fast starter in your business, understand the longevity side of it.

 

Buy a McDonald’s Franchise and they tell you, after you’ve spent a million bucks, that it’s going to be at least 2-5 years before you will be in profit.

 

There is a timeline for success in Direct Sales and network marketing, and we all come in with a difference set of skills.

 

You want to work with your sponsor to create that 30 day success story, and create belief for yourself that you can share with others.

 

We have a business of longevity and everyone is going to have their own way and time frame of getting signed up, and getting into action.

 

Take massive action, for sure!

 

Know the rule of 1/3s. 1/3 are getting started, 1/3 are doing something, 1/3 are leaving.

 

Stay out of management mode and keep building your own business!

 

We do a few simple steps over and over again.

 

We make a plan; we DO that plan and take action on it; we review the plan after 90 days and make some adjustments and write a new plan. Then, we get to work on that plan!

 

It is SO worth the journey, I do promise you that. I did an interview a number of years back where I was asked what the best part of having accomplished my goals was.

 

It’s not the money, although that is great.

 

IT’s not the recognition of being the top income earner in a direct sales company - although that was great, too.

 

It is the knowledge that I had done it, become one of the 1/2 of 1% of all people in Network Marketing. 

 

The person you become along the journey is priceless. The people you meet and the places you see are also awesome!

Some Advice for Your Direct Sales Journey

 

Develop an Attitude! An unshakable attitude that you are headed straight to the top in your Direct Sales business, 

 

The reality is, in the beginning, it’s a lot of work and a lot of time. In the beginning, you will work a lot, for little pay. Stay consistent and over time, that scale will shift dramatically.

 

Be faithful to your dreams, and to do this, you must be clear on your why. You will have set backs and disappointment but when your why is strong, you’ll be able to pick yourself up and get back in the game.

 

Get clear on your time and action commitment and make sure the time you have allocated matches with your goals. This must be in alignment. It’s not the lottery.

 

Hang out with successful people. This is where Network Marketing events and your convention are so important.

 

Make personal development a part of your every day plan. I listen to 3-4 hours daily in the form of YouTube videos, podcasts, and reading. I have something going in the background almost all of the time.

 

Don’t allow any obstacle to deter you from your end goal! Never quit on a bad day. 

 

Sell more than just your direct sales products, always sell your opportunity, too. Let people know about the income side of things! You just never know!

 

Don’t get distracted by bright shiny objects. Success is all about getting your products and opportunity in front of people. PERIOD! 

 

Practice, Drill and Rehearse. KNOW what you are going to say, develop those business skills. Practice in the mirror, this is how you will become a master.

 

Set your priorities for each day and get them into your calendar. Just 3 big ones!

 

Set challenging but attainable goals! Allow yourself to be stretched just a little!

Notes From Today’s Show:

 

Skill #6 is a very important one, and that is - Helping Your New Distributor Get Started Right

 

First, the real job starts once the sign up. It’s not in the sign up process itself. The task is not completed when they join, it’s when they get started!

 

Don’t be afraid to reach out and make contact. Don’t worry about buyer’s remorse. 

 

Create a 30 day success story. Help them earn their investment back. Help them have success, sell some products, develop a customer base and have a story to share when people ask -

 

Well, how’s the business going for you?

 

They can always reply - Well, let me tell you about my first 30 days… Schedule a time to go through a Game Plan Interview.

 

What’s in the Game Plan Interview? Congratulating them on their decision. Setting their expectations right - some will, some won’t, oh well.

 

Go through your own list of questions to find out their goals, their reason why, their commitment, the calendar, what’s their plan to get first customers and distributors?

 

Make sure they know how to navigate their back office, as well as place an order, sign up a customer and sign up a new team partner.

 

Explain available tools and how to use them.

 

Skill #7 - Promote events

 

The best way to promote events is to be attending events yourself.

 

Get them signed up for your company convention.

 

Find out any local events going on, too.

 

Events are life changing. My first company convention changed my life!

 

From there, promote the event each week!

How to Get Yourself Started in Network Marketing

 

Well, sad but true, the day you join your network marketing business is not always the day you start.

 

Sometimes, we sit around waiting for the started kit to come, then we play with the products, and that is all great, but those are not income producing activities.

 

4 Beliefs For Network Marketing Success

 

Your Mindset and Belief for Network Marketing Your Belief in your Network Marketing Company Your Belief in your Network Marketing Company’s Products Your Belief in Yourself!

 

Let’s start with Your Mindset and Belief for Network Marketing. As you may recall, I struggled with this in my business. I had a very negative blue print regarding direct sales, and it was not based on anything factual. I overcame this, with time, and surrounding myself with those successful in Network Marketing. I could see these were great people, and I wanted to be among those ranks!

 

So, you must get comfortable with your decision to be involved, as a career choice, in Network Marketing and Direct Sales.

 

I share some of the facts around why many women Party Plan don’t like to consider themselves in Network Marketing and why the general public is often more receptive to buying from party plan companies vs network marketing companies. And, how the retail price point of the products offered make a difference. Are they comparable with similar products out in the market place? This will be important to your prospective customer and while we can easily SAY that our products are better, how do we get this point across to the consumer?

 

Your Belief in your Network Marketing Company

 

Are you confident you are leaning your ladder against a wall that is viable for your career in Network Marketing? As long as you are, it is full speed ahead. Don’t worry about little blips in the road, these happen in every company.

 

Your Belief in your Network Marketing Company’s Products

 

Do you have a solid belief here and are you fully confident sharing your products with your friends, family and those you encounter?

 

Your Belief in Yourself!

 

Ouch! This is the critical piece. Get clear and work on your mindset and belief in yourself, ALWAYS!

 

Okay, so once you are good to go with all of those, let’s talk about how to launch and success.

 

Some ideas to consider:

 

Be careful who you listen to and who you allow to coach you.

 

Invest in your starter kit and begin to replace EVERY product you use that your company offers with your company line. You can’t sell, for the long haul, what you don’t own, and have experienced. Do you have to use every product? Not always. Sometimes there are reasons not to.

 

Get some basic product knowledge, BUT, don’t go overboard. You’ll get a few basic questions repeatedly, so know the answer to those, but beyond that, know where to find answers such as ingredient lists, and so on. The best way to get product knowledge is to USE those products yourself.

 

Be able to share the unique benefits; how they are used; and your favorite products.

 

Begin to recommend your products to others and check into sampling, if available for your company.

 

Be willing to get creative if you need to find a way to sample/demo your products.

 

Make your 100 names list and keep adding to it. Don’t roll your eyes - just DO it!

 

From that list, you have all kinds of ways to contact them - home party/demo; text, phone call, Facebook message - what ever works for you, just do it.

 

Learn the direct and indirect approach and I share the language to use in the audio, and learn more at StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Then, always be prepared with the next steps - some will not be interested, but more importantly, some WILL be interested. And always remember that some who say no now, will circle back around!

 

Rejection - yes, you can be disappointed but never feel rejected. There is no such thing! It’s just a decision they have made for their life situation!

2 More Skills to Go Pro in Your Network Marketing Business 

 

As we continue to study and master Go Pro, be Eric Worre, let’s talk about the next 2 skills you must master. In the last show, we talked about Making and Adding to Your List, Contacting and Inviting That List, and How to Present the Business to Your List.

 

Now, let’s get to skills 4 and 5

 

#4 - Follow Up - this is one area where so many in Direct Sales do drop the ball. We tend to want to make the argument - they have my information, they have seen the business, if they are interested, they will call me!

 

Not true. You will be amazed at how your business will grow if you just ASK people to join you!

 

So follow up typically consists of seeing what questions or objections they have; answering these and then asking them if they are ready to get started. 

 

Understand the power in follow up and that sales statistics show that an average of 4-6 exposures it what it takes to get someone to the decision point. That’s okay. Do your job, do your best and your business will consistently be growing as people come into the funnel, and fall out through the funnel and onto your team.

 

Understand how to answer the top Objections and see my overview at StreetSmartScripts.com for more

 

#5 - Help Your Prospect Get Signed Up as a Customer or Team Partner

 

What you don’t want to do, if at all possible is just give them the link and say “Go for it!” Instead, get online with them, even if over the phone.  Give them the website and walk them through where to click, what to enter, what their options are, and so on. Give them the royal treatment and VALUE them as a customer or team partner. Make them feel values, special and in good hands! Ask them to join and be prepared for them to say YES, and to get them signed up properly.

 

We’ll cover steps to get them started right on the next show!

How to Stay Consistent in Building Your Direct Sales Business

 

Notes From Today’s Show:

 

I want to share 5 concepts with you that can make a huge difference to the growth and success of your network marketing business.

 

#1 - Why - yes, I know, you’ve heard it said over and over again, and it’s true. Your WHY will be the most compelling reason that you will take action and stay focused and consistent in building your Network Marketing business!

 

#2 - Pick ONE thing - and master it. Yes, you may have many areas that you wish to improve in building your business - contacting, follow up, leading a team, and there may be others. However, in order to set yourself up for success, puck just ONE thing and focus there until you master that, and then move on to the next one. You already know what matters most - so get focused and go!

 

#3 - Schedule Your Priorities - most people do this in reverse. They make a to do list, and then sort and prioritize that list. Instead, decide what your top 3 priorities are for the day for growing your business and schedule this in to your calendar. Then, start your to do list and put those 3 things at the top. Get those done as quickly as you can, early in the day.

 

#4 - Ignore your feelings? What? I know, this is NOT what you typically hear from me. But, in this case, the idea is to power right through fear, procrastination and that small, often loud voice that may try to talk you out of doing what you need to do. Just go ahead - do it scared.

 

#5 - Get Back Up When You Fall - yes, we are looking for consistency and action. However, most of us have those times where we fall short. When this happens, you have a choice, Throw in the towel all together and just give up. Or, stand up, dust yourself off, have a stern talk with yourself and then get back in the saddle by taking the right action as quickly as you can!

 

“Success doesn’t come from the occasional thing, it comes from consistency.”

3 Skills to Go Pro in Direct Sales

 

Notes From Today’s Show:

 

Skill #1 - Build Your Prospect List

 

It’s critical to start with those people who you know. This is called your active candidate list. From here, you will expand outside of your warm market, but don’t make the mistake of discounting the power in your warm market.

 

Your goal is not to sponsor or sell, necessarily, but rather to just get your opportunity in front of others, and see if it’s a fit, and generate referrals.

 

Add to this list as you are out and about, meeting and networking with others.

 

And, do it scared. When you have fear, it’s easy to think you have no one to talk to, but this is a myth you’ve made up in your own mind. It’s important to write this list out, and get these names out of your head. As you look over the list, it will jog your memory to come up with others who they know - so that’s a question you want to ask as you look at each name on your list.

 

I have a goal of always putting myself out in front of others and sharing what I do, to see who THEY know who they might connect me with.

 

Network on Purpose and get out there and meet some people. Volunteer, join a new hobby group, go to seminars.

 

Skill #2 - Invite Your List to Learn More About Your Opportunity

 

You don’t have to have a major set of skills already to get people to take a look; just learning some good Success Language will take you far.

 

Your goal is not to pitch your opportunity, it’s simply to ask them to take a look by reviewing it via a third party tool. Not YOU sharing all of the details.

 

When you are the one sharing, your prospects think they must do that too, and it clouds the process. your goal is not to dazzle them with your knowledge. Just be your self, Be authentic.

 

And, you HAVE to detach from the outcome. This is simply a MUST DO!

 

As we learned in the last show, we must be willing to accept a temporary loss of esteem by those who are ignorant.

 

Steps to Invite in Direct Sales

 

Be in a hurry Give a compliment Make the invitation If I, would You Get time commitment on a yes Confirm time commitment Confirm a follow up time Get off the phone!!!

 

There is the direct and the indirect approach, so choose what best fits you and your relationship to your prospect.

 

Skill #3 - Presenting the Direct Sales Opportunity to Your Prospect

 

What’s the third party tool you will use? You should already know because you used the “If I, Would YOU” question.

 

Imagine the power in duplication when you, and your team can simply share a tool and create the type of looks and eyeballs on the opportunity that you need and want.

 

Learn to tell your story in a way that is powerful, but doesn’t give the whole presentation. Stories sell, facts just tell!

Sharing Vs Selling on Facebook in Direct Sales

 

Biggest mistake most people make - they join a company and then put out some spammy post on Facebook about your great new company, how we’re all going to get rich, JOIN MY TEAM and more.

 

You are turning off your perfect audience when you do this because most people see that and think - I would never want to do that.

 

Now, does that mean you never share about your business on Social Media? Of course not.

 

But here is how you do it - you share photos, testimonials and experiences in a way that creates interest, and NEVER share your link on the status update. You want people to come to you.

 

I generated 3 sales through one simple photo last week that showed my product and the results I had personally experienced.

 

Another mistake is to take just your company graphics and photos and using those to “advertise!”

 

No one comes to Facebook to be advertised to. You aren’t Lexus! 

 

You want to share, authentically, and excitedly, without hype.

 

I was recently in a conversation with a small group of Direct Sales reps who all agreed on one particular, well known company being so spammy and ad oriented that it was a total turn off.

 

Screaming BUY FROM ME and JOIN MY TEAM does nothing to provide value for your audience. People want to know - What’s In It For Me - is the question everyone is asking when they are considering joining a business.

 

Share in the same way that you would about the Denver Broncos going to the Super Bowl. Raw enthusiasm will create interest over promotion every day.

 

Think about how you can share in a way that will fill a need that your prospect has, both with products and the business.

 

Remember the 80/20 rule - 80% being fun, social, entertaining and only 20% being business related without being an advertising mess!

 

Learn more in my Facebook For Direct Sales Profits ebook.

 

Understand the Algorithm of Facebook and how sharing in the wrong way can affect you more negatively than you might imagine.

Go Pro - We Have a Better Way

 

Notes From Today’s Show:

 

One thing I love about this book and Eric Worre’s style is his authenticity and openness about the mistakes he made getting started and the growth he experienced from that.

 

As he says - Network Marketing isn’t perfect, but we do have a better way.

 

Do you treat your business like a business? Honestly?

 

Think about what drives most people to start a network marketing business. It’s usually a list of things they want less of in their lives, and then combined with things they want more of.

 

Less:

 

Boss Commute Office Politics Alarm Clocks

 

More:

 

Income Time Freedom Meaningful Work Positivity

 

There is a catch to network marketing though -

 

You must accept a temporary loss of esteem from ignorant people.

 

He advises - if you are going to get involved in Network Marketing, decide to become a professional.

 

There are posers, amateurs and professionals, and sometimes we go through all stages!

 

That saying that “Ignorance on Fire is Better Than Knowledge on Ice” is only partially true. Make a commitment to develop your business skills for success.

 

Every skill needed to succeed in Network Marketing can be learned and mastered.

 

Malcolm Gladwell talks about it in his book - The Outliers

 

Every Network Marketing professional has three things in common:

 

The Products The Compensation Plan And the Distributor Him/Herself

 

YOU are the only variable in your company. So, if there are challenges, look within first.

 

Next time, we’ll cover part 2 of Go Pro and that is the first 3 of 7 skills to success.

Sit in a comfortable chair and set it straight. Close your eyes. 

 

Listen and allow whatever comes up to come up.

 

Relax all areas of your body - head, chin, mouth, neck and shoulders. Move all the way down your body, relaxing.

 

This visualization is designed to help you experience a clearer mind and the ability to see and feel more of what you want in terms of success in your direct sales business.

 

Inhale in loving energy Exhale out your own loving energy.

 

Visualize the goal you want for your business. Feel what that is like to have success.

 

Now, visualize the fear you have around your business.

 

Does that fear stop you from taking action toward that goal?

 

What would you be doing in your Direct Sales business if you had no fear?

 

What will you do once you accomplish that goal?

 

See yourself surrounded by those closest to you once you have achieved your goal. How does that feel?

 

How do they relate to you and you to them?

 

The power to do this is always within you!

Do you practice gratitude and tell those close to you thank you on a regular basis? Or do you expect them to just know it, or appreciate YOU instead of the other way around?
 
Try it today - say thank you to someone you appreciate, maybe your spouse, and actually express what it is you are grateful for.
 
Some times thoughts of gratitude bring up thoughts of scarcity, and it’s as if being a giver will take away one’s ability to then get.
 
But, it’s actually the reverse. The more you give, the more you get. It’s a law of the universe.
 
Scarcity is a big issue with many people and certainly something I have struggled with myself.
 
Pay attention to how it may be showing up for you.
 
You can’t be thinking about what you are going to get back and be an authentic giver.
 
Pick 5 people today to offer sincere gratitude to.
 
Resentment
 
Once you have expressed gratitude to this close to you, now it’s time to move on to those who you feel anger and resentment toward.
 
There is a lesson and value in this exercise for you. In every negative experience we have with another, there is a learning lesson.
 
You don’t need to contact these people personally, but go into a room by yourself, get comfortable and close your eyes. Visualize each person, one at a time. Surround them with a healing white light and tell them that you wish them nothing but good things.
 
And, thank them for what they contributed to you in the form of a learning lesson.
 
Give away time, give away knowledge and information.
 
And, I have started something new with the Donate button. 
 
It’s entirely optional. IF you find value here and want to donate, just use the link.
 
IT’s part of the giving, tithing, and flow of the energy of money out into the world.
 
Your Higher Power
 
When you are a believer, spend time focused on your higher power, your God and connecting to the inner wisdom that will guide you along the path you are pursuing.
 
Which would you rather listen to? The Chatterbox or Your Higher Power?
 
Use affirmations and learn to shut down the chatterbox.
 
Have faith and trust in the process. Know that when you plug in to your higher conscious, you will be guided to the right actions, and people in your business.
 
Spend time each day in meditation and prayer. Close your eyes, close your mind, and open your heart.
 
When you are feeling fear, that is the best time to close your mind and ask for the right solution.
 
Do this at night before you drift off to sleep and the ask for the right actions and answers to show up.
 
And, when things don’t turn out like you planned, just know that the timing was not right and would not have served your final good.
 
Stay tuned to the next show as I am going to take you  through her Fear Busters Guided Visualization.

Treat Your Direct Sales Business Like a Job

 

Today’s notes on how to be more focused in your Network Marketing business.

 

Decide now - are you building your direct sales business on a serious level, as a professional, or are you a hobbyist?

 

Gary Vaynerchuk, author of the book Crush It sums it up so well in his book -

 

Passion is everything!

 

How badly do you want to crush it? Is it an all consuming feeling? Do you stay awake at night, your brain swimming with ideas and dreams? Are you willing to do whatever it takes for the chance to live entirely on your own terms?

 

Gary’s 3 rules -

 

#1 - Love Your Family #2 - Work super hard #3 Live your passion

 

There are no excuses, unless you are willing to be mediocre in your business. Is that you? Does that fit your model of direct sales?

 

Shower, Suit Up, Show Up, just like you would a job. Take Action.

 

Get prepared mentally and physically.

 

Develop your business skills.

 

Do it scared!

 

I just sponsored a runner in my business, Vickie. I’ve known her since 4th grade.

 

What is a runner? She’s your dream team partner.

 

She wants it bad. She’s coachable and she said - tell me what to do. And, then she has done it.

 

She has our next month calendar jam packed!

 

She’s following the system and no where along the way - not once - has she said - why are we doing it that way?

 

She’s making videos and she is doing it scared!

 

Work on your skills.

 

Practice, Drill Rehearse!

 

Don’t spend too much time getting ready to get ready!

 

Get prepared mentally and physically.

Fear and The No Lose Model

 

We’ve been reviewing Susan Jeffer’s Book - Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway this month.

 

Here are the notes from today’s show:

 

One of our biggest fears is just making decisions. We’ve been taught to “Be Careful!” We panic at the thought of making mistakes. When you think about your decision in Direct Sales, it’s a no lose model, if you just get into action, develop your business skills and don’t quit.

 

Do your homework on what needs to be done. Establish your priorities. Trust your gut instinct. Lighten UP!

 

Action is the key to your success. Say yes and know that you can handle it. Watch for those signs from the Universe that lead you the right direction. Really, it’s not so bad. You can handle more than you think!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 222 and today I am answering a question that many people probably have, submitted by Dan and sam, and they ask - is it possible, or advisable to Build Two Direct Sales Businesses. Oh boy, we are going to have some fun with this question.

Is It Possible to Build Two Direct Sales Businesses

 

Here is what Dan and Sam submitted - 

 

I have a question which I don't think anyone I know is qualified to answer. I know you have touched on this in one of your posts a while back. Its regarding running two network marketing businesses side by side. I seem to remember you saying that its fine as long as the products don't clash and ours certainly don't. Our first company is services and the second one we want to start is product based and we feel more passionate about the product based then we ever have done with the services. Our main concern is prospecting people and not knowing which way to send them! Seems we may be making life more complicated than it needs to be.

 

What are your views on running two? 

 

Do you think its possible or would you recommend that we just stick to one?

 

Oh boy, have you ever wondered this? I have and I’ve been on both sides of it.

 

Here are the notes from today’s show and the things you want to consider and listen for -

 

What are your goals? Retail sales? Replace an Income? Leadership? Recognition?

 

I’ve only ever really see this work well in Party Plan, with a retail focus.

 

Remember this - your main product is your OPPORTUNITY - so which are you going to offer?

 

You are thwarting your efforts when those who may be watching you, trying to decide on joining you see offering yet another thing.

 

Trust becomes an issue, with your team, your prospects and your upline

 

Company Policy - starting and as you progress.

 

Conventions and Travel - will you attend both?

 

Autoships and Quotas

 

You are modeling for others all of the time.

 

Finally, Social Media - are you going to share openly about two businesses? It’s hard enough to build one, much less tow.

 

What are your thoughts on the topic?

Fear and Moving Past It

 

In the the first part of the book, and Show 219, we covered Fears, truths about fear, moving from pain to power and more.

 

So, here are the notes from today’s show:

 

Are you playing “victim” or taking responsibility? Do you know what responsibility means? Beyond taking care of yourself?

 

You can’y control always what happens IN life but you can control how you experience and react to what happens.

 

Taking responsibility means:

 

Never blaming another for anything you are doing, being, having or feeling. Not blaming yourself - stuff happens sometimes, and there is just no one to blame. Being aware of when you are NOT taking responsibility so you can shift that. Handling your own chatterbox, and inner critic and self talk! Being aware of “payoffs” and how they keep you stuck. Figuring out what you want in life and then acting on it. Being aware that you have many choices in any given situation.

 

Some exercises you may choose to do -

 

List the payoffs that keep you stuck in any situation. How does this allow you to not face certain things? What do you not have to do? Be aware of all options you have throughout the day. Use a notebook to journal about things that happen and the options you have for feeling about it and acting on it. Pay attention to what you say in conversations with others. Do you complain or gossip? What gifts have you received from situations that you might have looked at as bad at the time they occurred? Go one week without being critical or gossiping about anyone else. Even to yourself!

 

Some people may call you a Pollyanna for your positive viewpoint. Oh well! 

 

Use a morning routine to reinforce your positive changes. Record an MP3 of your affirmations, your visualizations; write them out; take a photo and store on your smartphone to review at least twice daily.

 

You’ve got this!

Couple of things - First, we are well into our Book of the Month, and it’s Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. Click for details.

 

Second, our Book for Next Month is Go Pro, by Eric Worre. Get it here.

 

It’s a must read, and read again, and teach your team kind of book.

 

I will have the rest of the books for the year out shortly. Just trying to track down and confirm some that I want to use and to make sure they still fit.

 

Your Direct Sales Marketing Plan

 

It’s called Network and Marketing, and Direct Sales for a reason.

 

Network - that is your working inventory. Your list of potential candidates for your network marketing business. Finding people to talk to about your business and products.

 

Then, there is Work - part of the word, because it does take work.

 

And, then there is Marketing - opening your mouth and getting the word out about your business.

 

The definition of marketing is - According to Mashable, Marketing is the way companies interact with consumers to create relationships that are beneficial to both parties.

 

Advertising is a form of marketing communication used to promote or sell something, usually a business's product or service.

 

So, what is your marketing plan for your Network Marketing business?

 

I spent time looking back at my planner from last year and seeing what worked and what didn’t, and that allowed me to figure out a focus for this next year.

 

4 ways to find contacts -

 

Warm Market Contact List - many people object to this, and that’s crazy.

Offline Networking

Buying Leads

Mall Walking - or lifestyle marketing.

 

Today, we also have social media which is a bit of a mix of all of these.

Now, your goal is to expand outside of your center of influence as quickly as possible, and you can do that by making that contact list, and then reaching out and saying -

 

I’m excited about a new venture, and it’s probably not for you, and I get that. However, you know some people who this might be perfect for so I would just love to share it with you to see if you know anyone for whom it might be a fit.

 

Get Success Language Tips at StreetSmartScripts.com

 

You can’t build the successful business you want on the back of your friends and family, only. You need a network beyond that and each person you know easily has 250 people right off the top of their head that they could put on a list and potentially contact, or introduce you to.

 

Ask for referrals, Take the awkwardness out of the situation by leading with this.

 

Getting out into the community you live in is a great way to quickly expand your network. Lead with your product first, in this environment, though.

 

Some things to determine in your Direct Sales Marketing Plan -

 

Make your contact list.

Go through your Social Media contact list.

What opportunities are there for you offline, locally?

 

Marketing budget - how much do you have and will you invest in your business to market it?

Time budget - be realistic as to what you will commit to. For me, I’m not going to drive 30 minutes once a week for a networking event. But, I am committed to networking events, I just need to find the right ones.

Commitment - how committed will you be to whatever steps you take to expand your marketing?

When you get involved in an offline networking group, you MUST get involved and get consistent. Joining is not enough, just like your business.

 

 

What I say in my elevator pitch -

 

Hi, I’m Jackie Ulmer with FunFabLashes.com and I create fun, and confidence with my 3D Mascara, taking your lashes from zero to hero. Come check out my eyes to see the difference. Also, ladies, if you are tired of your lip color falling off into your breakfast, our lip stains will blow you away! Jackie Ulmer, FunFabLashes.com

 

It’s not uncommon for me to get mobbed when the meeting is over, by the women, and the men who want to buy for their wives, girlfriends, and I sell product at almost every event!

 

So, write down what you would say and then look at it - is it over hyped at all? Is it too salesy? How will it be perceived by those who might be a fit for it?

 

Then, get committed to developing your business skills. Starting with your communication skills, and then connecting with others, and networking with others.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 219 and welcome to the fabulous new year, 2016! As I have mentioned, we are starting a book of the month for the next 12 months. We are starting with Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway, by Susan Jeffers.

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

 

I love this book, and it is timeless. Let’s face it, fear is probably the #1 thing that holds most of us back in our Direct Sales business. So, what if we make a slight shift in how we SEE and handle fear?

 

And, the story we make up about it?

 

What are your fears? Be honest, take an inventory and write them down.

 

We are going to re-educate our minds to shift from thinking that we must overcome FEAR, and realize that fear is a fact of life, and NOT a barrier to our success.

 

When you take a chance, and get bold, and take steps despite your fears, you begin to change the way you experience fear, and the hold that it has on you.

 

3 Levels of Fear

 

Level 1 - facts of life fears and action fears

 

Fact of life fears are things like aging, children leaving home, death and dying, natural disasters. They are things that happen, and are often inevitable and out of our control.

 

Action fears are those things we must take action on in order to experience - rejection, success, failure, disapproval, loss of self image.

 

We must DO something in order to actually experience this fear as a reality, and not just think it will happen.

 

Level 3 fear is one thing - I Can’t Handle it!

 

And, when you break it down, all fears come down to this ONE thing - I can’t handle it!

 

I can’t handle it rejection! I can’t handle it death of a loved one! I can’t handle it if someone says something negative about me and Direct Sales!

 

Who knows why we stop trusting ourselves, but often we do.

 

Let’s just change that from here going forward.

 

New Mantra - Whatever happens to me, in any situation, I can handle it!

 

IF we wait for our fears to go away before we take action, we will never advance, because fear does not go away, necessarily. 

 

5 Truths About Fears

 

Truth #1 - The Fear will never go away, even as I am growing and moving forward.

 

Truth #2 - The only way to get rid of the fear of something is to just go out and do it!

 

Truth #3 The only way to feel better about myself is to go out and do it!

 

Truth #4 - Not only will I experience fear whenever I do something outside of my comfort zone, so does everyone else!

 

Truth #5 - Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the underlying fear that come from feeling helpless!

 

Shifting from Pain to Power

 

Fear is not the problem. How we feel and hold onto fear is.

 

Shift your self talk.

 

Change - I can’t to I won’t Change - I should to I could Change - it’s not my fault to I take responsibility Change - life’s a struggle to life’s an adventure Change - it’s terrible to it’s a learning experience

 

Rate each fear on a scale of 1 to 10 and work to move toward a 10 each day.

 

Each day, do something that you once viewed as scary, or risky. Take small baby steps and see how you feel!
