Monday Mantra I Am Enough 

I am enough. What thoughts come up for you when you hear, read or say that phrase to yourself?

The dictionary quotes enough as - adequate, sufficient and fully.

What is it that cause us to feel like less than enough? We feel inadequate; insufficient and like we are not fully….enough.

How do you view success? What does success mean to you? How do you measure it?

It’s often a monetary way that we measure success. And, we base it on our work or career.

Work - how do you feel like you are, or are not enough? How might you become “enough?”

Relationships - how do you define my relationships and how do you feel like you are, or are not enough? How might you become “enough?”

Success - same here - how do you feel like you are, or are not enough? How might you become “enough?” What would practicing our Monday Mantra I am Enough - do for you?

Understand the timeline of success, follow up, longevity and consistency in your business, and learn not to measure your success by what happens TODAY, or who joins TODAY. 

Shift your success measurement around the action steps that you need and must take to get you where you want to be.

Gratitude is the foundation of all success, and an important part of your life and business. Practice gratitude today just by looking around.

Ask yourself - do I have enough today RIGHT now, to survive? Am I fed, clothed, warm, have shelter?

Try a 30 day gratitude challenge where you jot down 10 things you are grateful for once in the morning and again at night. Watch how this moves you to the next level and creates more in your life.

Write it down - I Am ENOUGH.

That’s our Monday Mantra I Am Enough.

Bugs on the Windshield in Direct Sales

On a recent road trip, I experienced firsthand some "bugs on the windshield." We were out of the city,  driving up a mountain and drove through a LARGE swarm of some kind of big, awful bug and our windshield was SOAKED in guts and water (sorry, a little graphic!)
 
It made me think about some of the current trends in life and business and that phrase we hear in Network Marketing - "Bugs on the Windshield."
 
Sometimes, you get pounded with a swarm -
 
Someone who was really being counted on quits.
 
Someone who was really being counted on signs up with someone else.
 
The company won't change the labels.
 
There are too many conference calls.
 
There is too much training.
 
There are too many emails.
 
An email or phone call doesn't get returned quickly enough.
 
The answer can't be found.
 
 
Whatever it is, all of us have those times that we feel the bugs have invaded. It's going to happen in life; friendships; with children; and with our life partners. Sometimes, it invades an entire town or community. It certainly happens in business.
 
You've heard it before - Tough times don't last but tough people do.
 
You are here because you are "a tough people!!!" (Okay, person.)
 
 
NOTE TO SELF - STOP WHINING; STOP THE PITY PARTY; STOP FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF; GET OFF YOUR DUFF AND GET BACK IN THE GAME.
 
Now, before you think that was directed at you, please read on. That is the copy from a note that I placed on my closet door a few years back.
 
I won't get into all of the reasons I put that there, but they were all personal and had to do with fires; neighbors who lost everything and moved; a neighbor diagnosed terminal who passed away last week; and the helplessness and "survivor guilt" that surrounds all of that. I went through a period when I just couldn't get revved up to work on my business. It felt almost "trivial" in light of all that had been lost.
 
The reality is, I can't change any of that. Just like, in most cases, none of us can change the things that are dealt to us that seem devastating. As another leader recently shared about their local tragedy, we all have a choice in how we look at things and what we do about them; how we react.
 
Seasons come and go. Spring brings buds, blooms and new growth. Winter and Fall are like a "death"; a cleansing. We have this same thing in our lives and in our businesses.
 
Things change; people change; teams change. My son cried his 7 year old heart out at the end of his first hockey season. He knew he would not get the same team again the next season. He was right. He had a different team; and another one the next season, and so on. And they were all wonderful in their own way, and yet different.
 
Our team's will change; leadership changes; products change, and yet there is always reason to embrace that change and make room for the new that awaits. It's all about looking at the door opening and not at the one closing.
 
You are a champion. And, you have a championship season ahead of you. If you just stay in the game, you won't choke at the free throw line. You'll sink the ball; be lifted on the team's shoulders and ride off into the sunset.
 
When business "slow downs" happen, the first thing to look at is yourself. Did you change anything? Make an adjustment? Take time out to do this, that or the other thing? What are you doing differently? Are you taking the same action steps daily?
 
There are two things that speak loud and clear – results and excuses.

Which do you produce more of on a daily basis? 
When your business isn't moving forward the way you want it to, who do you blame?
When chaos consumes your life, who do you blame?
At the end of the day, when you are in a funk, who do you blame?

In my early days in my business, I lived with a lot of excuses and blame –

Things will be better when the company does THIS.
Things will be better when my downline does THAT.
More people will be interested when THIS happens.
What a train wreck that kind of thinking was!

I have watched people spend thousands of dollars and thousands of hours building systems and the "perfect" mousetrap, and yet no more mice were caught. I've looked for that holy grail as well.

Success in this business is NOT about systems; NOT about the next new product; NOT about the perfect script; NOT about what others can and should do for you.

Yes, systems can help; and new products are nice; and new scripts may feel more comfortable. But they are not what determine your ultimate success.

Success in this business, day in and day out, lies with YOU.

Every day, success is a choice. Every step you take and every step you delay determines your success.

What steps will you take and what steps will you delay today? The answers will determine your success and the speed of it.

 Today, I feel empowered by what lies ahead; challenged by the new things coming; new trainings being taught and new ways of reaching out to people.

We don't need more training; more calls; or more "stuff." We just need more nuts and bolts action.

Everything anyone needs to be successful is available. The leaders will reach out and grab it. You just need to point them in the right direction and certainly, support them. Everyone here does that just fine.

If someone on your team doesn't take action, and you know you have done your job in pointing and supporting, please don't feel that somehow you haven't done enough or could be doing more. Success and the desire for it comes from within each person. 

Some who are here had no real sponsorship at all and yet they sought out what they needed. The leaders will always do that. Be there to celebrate and embrace the moment with them.

Follow Up Fortune in Direct Sales

Some people in Direct Sales are great at follow up and most are not. We come from an employee mindset. We clock in, clock out, and get paid without being involved in “sales” for the most part.

Most people don’t understand the buying cycle of selling, or the psychology of selling because we are afraid of the war SALES and we don’t like to think we are in sales. I’m not talking about the browbeating, bugging everyone type of sales, either.

When you know what to say and use good success language. you won’t be afraid. Learn more about mastering the art of good language in selling in my Street Smart Scripts program.

http://StreetSmartScripts.com  


Know what to say and how to say it and you won’t be afraid of following up, or inviting for the first time.

Ask them to join you after each business overview. Most people miss this key point.

We think that if they are interested in our business, they will raise their hand

Exclusive Club - invite them into your exclusive Direct Sales team club.

“So, are you ready to get started?” “Are you ready to get started making money now?” “Will you join me in this business? I would love to work with you.”

Yes, no or maybe will be the answer.

If they say yes, sign them up on the spot.

If they say no, ask for feedback. “Tell me what it is that makes you say no? I would love to know and don’t worry, I’m not going to try and convince you. It just helps me be better.”

Honor that and then don’t try to talk them into it.

Most will be a maybe. Ask them - what information can I provide to take you to a yes.

You just be positive and have a positive outlook all throughout the business. Even with the nos. Doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with you, your company, product or Network Marketing.

You must be patient. And, follow up. People do change their minds.

I’m a perfect example. If you know my story!  LINK!!!!!

I was not interested and never thought in a million years I would be doing network marketing.

How do we create Follow Up Fortune in Direct Sales and be effective?

Always book a meeting from a meeting. “When is a good time for me to check back with you?”

Often, your prospect will tell you that they will call you after they have reviewed the information. That’s fine, but it will serve you well to then make the following statement -

“That’s great Sue, and if I don’t hear from you by XYZ date, I’ll call you that day at 2:00pm. Sound good?”

This sets you up for success and they know you are a professional.

How do you handle the dos in Direct Sales? This is where most people drop the ball. We feel rejected and feel like there is something wrong and we are then afraid to ever check back.

I use the 3-6 month rule for follow up.

I send a thank you card, a physical carder everyone who looks at my business.

If you need a system, go to CardsMakeCash.com to learn more about the system I use.

Set yourself apart as a professional by sending a card, and get them into your database. Use this database to keep in touch and follow up. Every 3 - 6 months, keep in touch.

Keep in touch on birthdays, anniversaries and other odd holidays when they wouldn’t typically hear from someone.

Also, keep them informed on any changes and positive happenings within the company. Use the third party approach.

Remember to stay positive, stay patient, and persistent.

Sales Stats

48% never follow up with a prospect.
25% follow up just one time
12% follow up 3 times.
Only 10% make more than 3 contacts
2% of sales occur on the first contact
3% of sales occur on the second contact
80% of sales are made on the 5th to 12th contact or follow up.

Think about what that means in your business! What if you started using that 3-6 month rule with your prospects.

Learn success language and develop your mindset for success.

Timing is absolutely everything and it is your prospect’s timing, not yours.

Use a contact manager, and a system to stay automated and organized in your follow up. Now you know about Follow Up Fortune in Direct Sales! Keep in touch 3-6 times a year and catch them when they are ready!

Listening for Direct Sales Success

Listening truly is the greatest skill you can develop. It will help you in every relationship you have - spouse, children, parents, sibling, all family, friends and business associates. Seriously - everyone!

Michael Smith says - I know you understand what you think I said. But I’m not sure you realize that what you HEARD is not what I meant.

Network Marketing is about developing leadership skills, and it’s about developing others as leaders, too. The core skill is to develop and master the art of listening.

Do other’s GET what you are saying? Do they feel heard?

The big problem is that most of us listen with our own agenda, especially in prospecting situations. Instead of asking a valid questions and then listening authentically for the answer, we are on ready=set-go to respond with a pre-canned response, because we think we know not only what they are going to say, but what they mean.

We know what we are going to say, and we are happy with it. So, it;s not really SPEAKING that is the most significant part of communication. Instead it is the LISTENING.

Because when someone feels HEARD, you become the most interesting person in the world, and you now have an amazing opportunity to get your message across and have an interested person.

Now, this is not about tricking or coercing someone, it’s about lowering the resistance and encouraging the ongoing conversation.

Network Marketing is about relationships and that is about conversations. Conversations are about two or more people speaking and listening, authentically,

Become aware of how YOU listen. This will make you a better communicator. And, you might be surprised at your own listening skills, or lack of them.

We often listen in a way that sets us up to think about what the other person is thinking.

What do they think about me?

My involvement in Network Marketing?

How can I Impress them?

What are they wanting to hear?

How many times have you been in a conversation and those thoughts creep in?

How many times have you been looking for the perfect script, and seeking it from your upline and those who you encounter?

Have you ever heard no and taken it personally? What’s wrong with me or my opportunity?

Do you listen and want validation?

Do you desperately seek a family member or good friend to host a party, or refer others? And then when they don’t we get offended?

Have you ever thought that you know better then your prospect what is good or right for him/her?

This can greatly derail you, if you feel this way, because you place all power outside of yourself.

We make judgements about right, wrong, good, bad and so on.

How many times, in a conversation, have you defaulted to those thoughts?

Do you obsess over what people think of you? Their opinion of your choice to create a career with Network Marketing? 

Be willing to let people off the hook who you know are not ready at this time.

Do you have FOMO - a fear of missing out? Change that to JOMO - Joy of Missing Out.

Be willing to commit to doing the right thing, creating a true win-win, and saying - I want the very best for YOU. Not me, but you!

Never lose a friendship over business. It’s not worth it.

Decide to become a powerful listener.

Be willing to “walk a mile in their shoes.”

We all come from unique situations and as much as we think we know; we don’t know!

A no has nothing to do with you.

Listen for cues - what’s going in their world, their life, and what makes this not the right time?

Have faith - you will sponsor some of these on down the road.

At the same time, listen for possibilities and cues. You just never know! People will come back to you. Leave that door open and never burn a bridge.

What you listen for shapes your reality and when you listen in a way that honors your prospect, that will reward you on down the road. When the time is back.

Focus on becoming a great listener and watch how your business grows!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 277.  We like to say that success in Direct Sales can easily be achieved in 4 years when you have a strong why; an action plan; and you take action on that plan daily. How would you like to know The Four Year Plan For Success 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 

And, DirectSalesBootcamp.com is open! 

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

It's important to know that success in direct sales is not about get rich quick. If someone has told you to expect this, then run far and run fast. 

Steady, stable and growing networks that generate residual income for decades are very rarely get rich quick. You must build for longevity if you want it to last and create the income and lifestyle you desire. 

The hardest part is to stick and stay til you get your pay. 

Here is what you want to make sure you have in place to fulfill your 4 year plan. 

First, set a realistic expectation of how fast it's going to happen; how fast you are going to act; and what it's going to take. 

If you want to develop a 6 figure income, you must first develop a 6 figure mindset and as important, a 6 figure work ethic. 

Next, write out your action plan. This is so simple in Network Marketing. The problem is that most people think about what needs to be done; they study the concepts behind what needs to be done; but they don't actually ever take the action because of fear and doubt. 

So, let's suspend fear for now and visualize yourself already having the success you desire. 

Look at that action plan you've written out and ask - what would I take action on today, right now, if I did not have fear? 

Now just take that action. Let go of that fear. Do the thing that scares you and see that you actually do survive it! 

Know the fundamental skills you need to develop and work on that every day. 

I'm often asked - how many people should I talk to each day? The answer is- the number you need to in order to feel like a success and begin to see success show up. Feeling successful comes before being successful. 

Learn how to make a viable list; what to say to contact that list; how to invite; present; follow up and ask them to join you. Know the steps to take to get them trained and launched. 

Rinse and repeat - do this over and over. As you do this, you will shape yourself into a leader. And, you'll further develop the leadership skills you need to take your business to the top. I LOVE and appreciate reviews!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 275. In today's show we are going to go through 4 steps that you can use to plan to succeed 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

Many people start a business in Direct Sales.It's not that difficult and people do it every day. What very few do though is actually plan to succeed. 

Think about how little it takes to start- a decision and room on a credit card. It takes much more to make a success of that decision, however. 

So here are 4 simple steps that if followed can take you to the level you want in your Direct Sales business. 

These aren't rocket science. But most people don't follow these 4 steps. Have you? 

#1 - Get very clear about what it is you want from your direct sales business. Write it down, very clearly and in very specific detail. Do you want to quit your job? This means you want to create a full time, replacement income from your Direct Sales business. 

How much does that mean you need to make after expenses and taxes? What do you need to be netting? 

Think about this step. Have you taken it? Have you clearly written down what you really want from your Direct Sales business? 

#2 - Find an accountability partner. Then, share your written intention with this person and ask him/her to hold you accountable. It's like a gym buddy. You are much more likely to see the job through when you have someone to answer to. Sadly, most of us can't or won't do it on our own. 

An accountability partner can become not only a good friend, but a strong companion in building your business. So, choose this person wisely. 

#3 - Do something every day that shows that you are serious and committed to your goal; your reason why; your intention. It can be one thing, or it can be many things. Single Daily Actions that are income producing activities are the key to making things happen. 

Busy work such as conference calls, checking email, surfing on facebook are all forms of distraction and procrastination. 

#4 - Do something each day that stretches you a little. It could be contacting someone on your "chicken list" or hosting  a live call. These stretch are what will get your to your goal faster. 

You'll find that once you stretch yourself  and it doesn't kill you, you'll begin to stretch even more and find leaving your comfort zone it easy. 

So there you have 4 simple, yet often challenging steps you can take to Plan to Succeed in Direct Sales. 

My question for you is - are you ready? Will you do it? Will you Plan to Succeed in Direct Sales?

Vision to Move Your Direct Sales Business Forward

We’ve launched a new year with 2017, and now is the perfect time to craft a new and improved vision for your business!

Your vision becomes your reality! And, you need a strong vision to Move Your Direct Sales Business Forward!

Hope is not a plan, although it is important to your business.

A goal without a deadline is just a wish.

Do you want results in your business in a reasonable amount of time?

Clear out the clutter, get into action on your goals and expect success, like I always say.

Create daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals.

It ALL starts in the mind, just like the smartphone, device or computer that you are listening to this on.

Write your vision down, create a dream board or a dream book, or call is a goal book/board, and add some pictures that reinforce your vision. Create a POWERFUL Vision to Move Your Direct Sales Business Forward!

Much like I did with the beach! Listen to the show to hear about my recent experience leaving the beach, and getting to the beach to begin with and the steps I took to create the vision.

Schedule a Vision Board/Dream Book Workshop, and invite some Friends.

Your Direct Sales Focus Word for the Year

A focus word is something you want to choose carefully and based around what you are working toward in your direct sales business. Or, a word you want to move away from, to some extent.

My word for my Direct Sales business for 2016 was Mastery. And, I really struggled with this for the first half of the year, feeling like my goal of creating “Mastery” in the areas I was working on wasn’t happening.

I chose mastery because I wanted to really choose a book, a project or something that I am working toward and MASTER it. So, instead of reading a book a week, or a book a month, and then not ever REALLY putting the knowledge in the book into action, I wanted to pick 12 books, one a month, that I had already read, and like, and dig down deep into putting what I’ve learned into action and really creating mastery!

However, toward the end of the year, I realized why mastery was the word I had picked, and how I was taking control and MASTERING what I needed. More work to be done, for sure. But, I’m feeling pretty good.

My focus word for 2017 is FAITH!

It took my until New Year’s Eve to find the right word, when it just popped into my brain, as often happens.

Faith has been a big part of my 2016 and I see how it plays into my life. So, I’m stepping out on FAITH in all that I do this next year and allowing things to fall into place as they manifested for me in my life.

I have faith that my goals will happen, I have faith that my business will continue to thrive. I have faith that I will see the job through.

Share with me what your word is. Share it below, on Facebook or Tweet me!
