Can you really attract people to you online using attraction marketing? The answer of course is yes.

Attraction Marketing: Is the new  model for doing business. It leverages the internet and social media to attract interested customers to you instead of you chasing them. This is a very useful way of generating leads for your network marketing business but can also be used for traditional business.

This method allows you to leverage the speed of the internet, it’s cost effective and also the reach is unlimited for finding motivated customers and prospects.  You can do this as a part time business.

The first step in attraction marketing is to give your prospects useful information about how to build their business.

Your goal is to become a specialist in a specific  marketing method or strategy so you become the go to person.

Here are 3 of the mistakes I see online using attraction marketing methods and how they can be avoided.

Attraction Marketing is a great way to get your prospects to come to you . If you set this up correctly with a self-branding attraction marketing system  you will never have to worry about where your leads will come from in the future.

There are some attraction marketing mistakes I’ve noticed people making.

If you’ve made some of these mistakes never fear because I’ve also given you the solution to the problem!

Attraction  Marketing Mistake #1

You pretend to have all the answers and set yourself up as an expert before you’re ready.

It’s OK not to have all the answers!

A lot of marketers pretend to be successful and know their stuff when in truth they really don’t. It’s not surprising since many guru’s online teach this tactic.

Honesty is the best policy always!

The premise of attraction marketing is to set yourself up as the expert and a leader.

Many people pretend to be experts when they haven’t done the work and don’t yet have experience.

It is such an exciting idea to have a steady flow of leads coming in on autopilot instead of you chasing them that some marketers forget to check their egos at the door. It’s not about you the marketer making money off of people who are struggling. It’s about helping people who really need solutions to their problems building a business.

Unfortunately in the excitement to capitalize on this type of marketing many people go overboard. Some even live the lifestyle before their success happens. It’s a recipe for disaster. It’s ok to believe in the dream but it’s also a good idea to remain grounded and remain practical.

Do this instead

Admit it when you don’t have the answer!

This goes a long way to building credibility. Believe it or not you can build trust by admitting you don’t have all the answers. Honesty will build a strong foundation which will carry your business into the future.

Develop skills as you grow. As a marketer the more skills you have the more people you can help and the more success you will create. You don’t have to pretend. In fact most people will see through the facade.

Be yourself, you are the brand and you don’t want to tarnish that for any reason.

Attraction Marketing Mistake #2

You subscribe to a system and then find out it doesn’t’ brand you.

There are many mlm attraction marketing  systems out there that can help you learn and develop your skills. Part of the allure is the attraction marketing system also furnishes a way to attract and capture leads. The best way to attract leads is to build “You” as the brand.

Be careful which system you choose . Make sure it brands you.

 Your long term goal in attraction marketing  is to brand yourself and develop a business foundation you can build on for your future.

Do this instead:

The system you subscribe too must  be able to brand you and have a customization sales funnel. You want to put your own video  and audio into the system. You want freedom to change text and make it your own.

As with all things in life “If it’s worth doing it’s worth doing right.” Take the time to learn how things work.  Make sure you are building something that cannot be jeopardized by outside sources. Build “You” the brand and own it.and add to your skill set as you go.

BIG TIP:  Be dedicated to learning attraction marketing strategies.

Prospects are very knowledgeable in today’s online market. So look sharp and learn as much as you can.

Video is the quickest way to make an impression and helps your prospect make the decision to give you their contact information. Show confidence in the things you know and are good at. Offer value packed information with you own personal flavor.

Video allows your prospects to hear your voice and see you in action. This goes beyond any other marketing method for building your brand, establishing trust.

If you’re scared of video. Start slow but keep going until you become more comfortable because I promise you it will get easier.

We are all unique in our own way and there’s plenty of people looking for information and help with their home based business. Remember the failure rate in network marketing is a whopping 97% .

Attraction  Marketing Mistake #3

You give up before you reach your goals.

It takes time to build a business online. Unfortunately many people buy into the dream of supersonic speed in success working from home. Most people want it but they don’t know what it takes to achieve it. After a few failures they quit.

Online network marketing is not a get rich quick proposition. It takes time, dedication and staying power. Most people quit before they see results. They think they are a failure because they didn’t get rich in the first few months.

Do this instead

Read about network marketing before you join a company. There are some great books out there that outline the trials and tribulations of building a successful home based business. One of my favorite’s is ” Beach Money” by Jordan Adler. He was in 11 different companies before he finally figured out what it really takes to be a success in network marketing.

Set realistic expectations.

Know it will take some time. It could take as much as 3 to 5 years with consistent effort.

Learn how to stay motivated by setting goals and practicing positive mindset techniques;

It’s ok to get excited about your new business in fact it’s mandatory but soon the new shiny wears off, then what. You must find ways to keep going and it all boils down to your mindset and belief in yourself. Read my blog post here on mindset.

There are many things you can do to stay motivated and focused and there’s plenty of help out there. So just look around and you will find what you seek.

I’d love to hear what you have to share.

What are your experiences with attraction marketing? What has helped you more than anything else with marketing online? What are you biggest challenges?

Network Marketing On The Internet

Have you ever asked yourself this question: Do I have to be a guru to do network marketing on the internet?

novice and expert

Free Digital Photos

The answer my friend is a definite no. We all start somewhere and most of us start at the novice level. This blog post will outline a way you can develop the skills necessary to take your business to the next level.

If you want to become  successful  with network marketing on the internet you can use the same  formula that I use. I will outline the details down below but first there are some steps you need to take before you begin your journey into network marketing on the internet.

  • Stop being so emotional about your business…begin to look at it as a BUSINESS! Study and understand the business plan.
  • Make the transition from somebody who is selling xyz to somebody who is building a business.

Never fear there is a way you can become successful promoting your network marketing on the internet .

This is the same system I use  and  I will explain the different levels everyone goes through before they are guru status for network marketing on the internet.

If I can do this then I know you can too.

#1   Novice: Academy Level

This is the “take you by the hand level”  the beginning of your journey into network marketing on the internet.

Everything is done for you. Your copy is written, your sales funnel is ready for you to use. The email follow up campaign is ready to go. You literally don’t have to do anything except start using the readymade  customizable system.

By using the system you begin to get leads, you call them up. You find out by asking questions what they are looking for and what they are struggling with in their business. You offer a solution because the number one problem in network marketing is a lack of leads.

At the Novice Level you learn to generate 50 to 100 leads.

The more you focus the faster you will move through these levels.

#2 List Builder: Gold Level

You pick a marketing strategy and perfect it…. your mantra is focus ,focus ,focus!

Focus and lots of it is one of the keys to success with network marketing on the internet.

You also learn how to set up a custom lead capture page. This is a critical stage to your business.

You generate your first 100 leads then you focus on setting up you own  auto responder and copywriting some broadcast emails to your email list. The initial emails are already set up for you but are totally customizable.  You’re learning how to build your own list. You learn that “The List” is the  gateway to success with network marketing on the internet. You can now begin the process of customizing the readymade sales funnel.

You are on your way to becoming a leader. You have full control of your destiny and you have a list.

#3  Team Builder..Platinum Level

You have a list and you’re building a team!

The system provides you with  all the tools you need to communicate with your team. Using these tools you begin to  systemize  training for your team . By systematizing training you free up your time. Without a system you are constantly on the phone trying to help your team members. Systems are good and help with retention. These are the skills you need for team building and you are full engaged with network marketing on the internet.

The team builder level comes with lots of band width and storage for your content , videos and trainings.

Set it up and give your team specific training in the back office.

This is what you’ve learned so far in your journey into network marketing on the internet.

1. you learned how to generate leads

2. you learned how to talk to your leads

3.  you learned how to incorporate an auto responder and send out broadcast messages.

4. you learned how to write  copy for a headline or for a capture page.

You have built a strong foundation with support,help and resources from the system that’s teaching you how to do network marketing on the internet.

From here on it’s going to get exciting.

There’s one more level and it’s for those who have preservered and made a committment to excellance and lifelong learning.

#4    Master : Mastery Level

You’ve moved beyond Team Builder and now you’re at the Mastery Level.

You’ve worked hard to get here…you are a master in at least one or two  marketing strategies and can generate leads on a daily consistent basis. You always have people to talk to about your business and you are a leader.

The system offers much at this level including 100% profit from educational  digital products already created by other successful marketers.

Joint ventures…now that you have a “Big List”  where you can team up with other marketers to help them sell their products by sending out email broadcast to your list.  “The money is in the list?” and it’s true.  Network marketing on the internet makes all of this possible.

With the Mastery Level you can tap into the best part of  the system.

You are being invited to join the ranks……..of the best of the best.

Congratulations you just became a Rock Star!

I’m sure by now most of you may have guessed what “The System” is.

It’s called My Lead System Pro and it’s the system that is teaching me what I know about network marketing on the internet. It is a proven system and I am proof that it works along with countless others who are  generating leads for their business and also making affiliate commissions by providing education products to those who are struggling.

If you are struggling with your business and want to get off the emotional roller coaster. Take a look at My lead System Pro and what it has to offer you. You can begin today learning network marketing on the internert.

You don’t have to build it…it’s ready to go.

The Surprising Truth About Baby Boomer Entrepreneurs

Baby Boomer

Harold and me on the beach in Mexico!

Baby Boomer is the biggest trend in history and they are getting younger in attitude and actions.

Now is the right time to take a look at what a Baby Boomer can do for your business.They are looking for opportunities.

This news may not be a total surprise but I do want to share some surprising facts I’ve put together , first let me tell you I too am a Baby Boomer  and after a long conventional career I started my own business, online as well as multilevel.

Let’s get started:

Did you know the highest rate of successful entrepreneurship age group is the Baby Boomer sector? I read recently  that the age group 55-64 have twice the success rate of those in the 20-34 age group.

Here are some reasons why a Baby Boomer is a good prospect for multilevel marketing and also online marketing:

  • A Baby Boomer has experience in a lot of areas , they bring a lot of knowledge to the table
  •  a Baby Boomer has established many long term relationships, through family, friendships and business.
  • They have the time and money to invest in a business
  • A Baby Boomer is  willing to work hard and has the motivation to succeed.
  • They like to live a certain level of lifestyle.
  • They are looking for a portable business to take with them on their trips.
  • A Baby Boomer wants to be their own boss.

Baby Boomer Fact: There are 7 million Americans over the age of 50 who work for themselves?

The  AARP reports that 1 in 6 Baby Boomers who work for others hope to be self-employed at some point. This is great news if you are in multilevel marketing and are looking for great prospects. A Baby Boomer is a good fit for most multilevel opportunities, they bring a lot to the table.

Terms are popping up in the media such as Encore Career and Second Chance Career and Second Act. Organizations such as AARP and even the Wall Street Journal are adding columns to their sites which cater to the Baby Boomer sector considering self-employment.

Why is Baby Boomer entrepreneurship such a hot topic these days? I think it’s because of reasons stated above but they enjoy staying active, they enjoy a challenge and they would like to replace retirement money they may have lost through investments and our weak economic times.

Baby Boomer Entrepreneur Reality Show:

Shark Tank is a number one reality show on ABC. It airs on Friday nights at 8 CST and 9 EST . The show is about Venture Capitalists  taking a serious look at contestants and their business or product ideas. The average age of these contestants is just shy of 54. The show puts budding entrepreneurs in front of Venture Capitalist where they  present their business ideas. The Venture Capitalists if interested bid on the idea and if they win the bidding  become a partner with the entrepreneur. This gives the entrepreneur the money to pursue their dream.  Many Millionaires have been made because of this show.

Shark Tank is one way to start your own business when you have a winning idea but there really is an easier way and that’s called multilevel marketing and also using the internet marketing to attract leads.

What better way to start your own business than with little overhead and all of the problems of starting your own company already solved?

As a multi level marketer you can be sure a Baby Boomer is out there looking for what you have to offer.  You are in a great position to share your opportunity  without your Baby Boomer prospect expected to lay out a huge amount of cash to begin their business. They or anyone else can get started easily.

I recently talked to a Baby Boomer who told me he has started 4 conventional businesses in his career and is looking to start up his 5th business but this time in multilevel marketing.

To find Baby Boomers  look for expos and other group events where you can meet and share your opportunity with them. Remember the Baby Boomer trend is the largest trend in history and the opportunities to involve a Baby Boomer in your business  are plentiful.

Things Your Upline Won’t Tell You:  Work With Me

 Recession proof your income

 

MLM Secret | Practice This Secret For Success!

MLM Secret | If you want to be successful you have to step out of your comfort zone.

Did you know “It’s OK to make a fool of yourself sometimes?”

 

MLM Secret Do you really want success? If your answer is”Yes” then you need to know it’s Ok to look foolish at times and it’s Ok to do things that make you really nervous but if you’re like most people  you would rather avoid this exercise and stay in your comfort zone. The truth is staying where you’re at is not going to take you where you want to go.

We all have the opportunity to make a fool of ourselves when we are new and just learning something. Anytime you venture out of your comfort zone you are at risk of feeling fear and this can make you very uncomfortable.  This is a learned  response and now it’s time to learn something new.

If you’re willing to take that extra step out of your comfort zone however the rewards can be life changing. This blog post will look at ways you can overcome some self imposed limitations and grow in the direction of your success.

Here’s an example of what you need to do:  imagine a baby learning to walk.  First he takes a step and falls, he takes another step and falls again. He does this continuously until he builds the strength to take his first step. . He improves his balance with every try and  he keeps trying until his legs and muscles are stronger and stronger.This goes on until he takes two steps then  multiple steps in a row.  Wow, now he’s walking! He is successful, he did not quit.

The only difference between the baby and us is this, he hasn’t learned what foolish feels like, he hasn’t learned fear. He isn’t bothered by  failing he just keeps on trying until he reaches his goal.

When the babies’ parents laugh at him he will just laugh too. The baby thinks it’s fun to step out of his comfort zone because he isn’t afraid and he knows it will give him freedom to roam wherever he wants to go. There’s a big reward for the baby learning how to walk.

There are so many examples of this trial and error pattern in our lives. If you give up at the first sign of struggle you will never reach your goals in life. Living is a process and learning anything new is as well a process. We develop at our own speed, don’t judge yourself by others who have more time and experience in the area you are trying to master.

No one wants to be laughed at but sometimes it is just part of the process. We have learned fear and that fear can become a big stumbling block to our success.We all have a fear of being annoying or just plain silly but the truth is sometimes being a little out there and even a little crazy can be an an asset to you and your business. One of the benefits in your MLM business is you will be remembered! That can be a very good thing.

I remember a fellow I met at a recent convention  “The Fuzzy Hat Guy”. Some of you may know him.He certainly got everyone’s attention. I personally would not wear a “Fuzzy Hat” like the one he wore but it worked for him. He is known as “The Fuzzy Hat Guy” and is building his brand around that image. You don’t forget him and that’s a guarantee.

Recently I submitted a video to a great video group I’m in. I’ll be honest I really had a lot of  fear and anxiety  because these people really know their stuff, they produce some awesome videos that look professional but I posted the video anyway. The critiques where brutally honest! That’s what I wanted but whoa, was the video that bad? Should I just give up? No, I will now learn more and practice more and become better. You must develop this attitude that you will do it until you learn how to be the best you can be. Don’t give up!

“Step out of your comfort zone?”  What does this really mean and how can it help you in your MLM business? Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can accomplish this and how this MLM Secret is a necessary part of growing beyond your limitations.

Listed below are some of the ways you can begin to step out of your comfort zone.

MLM Secret |  Take Action

Quit making excuses. Stop procrastinating.

Start with baby steps and even if you fall down get up again and keep moving. Action is an important part of stepping out of your comfort zone. Even if you feel uncomfortable it is necessary to do it anyway so you can grow beyond your limitations. By doing something you feel is uncomfortable and then developing into having success at it you will gradually change your thoughts about yourself and what you perceive as your limitations.

 MLM Secret | Learn and study your subject.

 The more you become an expert in your niche the more  knowledge you have and the more you can share this with others.

Having knowledge will help you gain confidence. Then practice, practice, practice what you’ve learned and start teaching others. Here’s a big MLM Secret  “You must become a leader,”  do things like joining Toast Masters and learn public speaking. If you can speak in front of people you can do just about anything. Get the training you need to obtain success.

 MLM Secret |Write down your goals.

Use a pen and paper. Also outline what you are willing to do to accomplish your goals, then put a date on when you plan to obtain the goal.

Writing your goals down is a way to help your  conscious mind understand what needs to be done and it will help your  sub conscious mind find a way to do it even if it means you have to step out of your comfort zone

 MLM Secret | Follow a mentor.

 Identify someone in your business group who is having success and immolate that person.

Develop a relationship with them and ask questions. By following a path that has already been forged it helps you to know your goals are possible.

 MLM Secret | Don’t forget to do what scares you.

One of the points already covered in the MLM Secret above was public speaking. If you’re nervous and feel scared then  you are probably on the right path. Just think once you have gone past your limits of today you will never have the same fear you once had. The key is to keep going and reach higher and higher.

Don’t let fear stop you from reaching your goals and success.

Make it a habit to continually grow in your abilities.

Zig Ziggler said this, “Remember that failure is an event, not a person.”

 Generate Leads for Your Business           

 

Internet Marketing: Things I’ve learned in my first year        Internet Marketing       

As I sit here reflecting on the past year and the reasons that first attracted me to internet marketing for my MLM business , I break out in a big smile.

I can say with some certainty that I have made definite progress. I’d like to take some time here to tell you about my journey so far.I haven’t traveled  alone, I subscribe to an educational platform called My Lead System Pro. It has been through this system that I’ve learned and developed internet marketing skills and continue to learn daily. I am grateful for finding this system. I also want you to know about the warm and welcoming community of other online marketers who are willing to share what works for them.

Here are some of the things I’ve learned so far:

1.Internet Marketing on Face book:

I’ve learned that spamming your friends is not the way to go on Face book. I learned how to build a fan page for my internet marketing business and also for my primary MLM business. I learned how to put together an effective Pay Per Click Ad Campaign to drive traffic to my fan page and  lead capture pages and also  built an audience for my fan pages. Through this pay per click campaign I generated leads for my internet marketing business and also generated interest in my primary business and began building my list.

2. Building a List using Internet Marketing:

Effective marketing is all about building and maintaining a list .The whole point of advertising and driving traffic is to identify those people interested in what you have to offer. In the last year I began building this list and I also learned how to use an autoresponded   I use the autoresponder to stay in contact with my list and also to send out broadcast messages for upcoming training , webinars, my blog posts and special announcements.

3.  Internet Marketing Blog:

Here’s one of the really big marketing strategies you can use to attract prospects to your business , your personal blog.This is  where people get to know you, most important in business and especially on the internet.  A blog is one of the best things you can do to build an audience and a list for your business. Blogging has been a learning experience for me.  My blog is a work in progress. I will be learning and working on this for a while! It needs constant attention and nurturing. You don’t have to blog but the top internet marketers do have one and I highly recommend you learn how to produce your very own branded blog. This is where you can share great value with your audience.
Post valuable content to your blog on a regular basis, feed your blog and it will grow.  Once you write your blog post then you want to promote it.  You must do the promoting and find tools to help you. It’s work but the payoff is worth the effort.

4.Internet Marketing: Videos

In the past year since I started my journey into internet marketing the one thing that scared my more than any other thing is Video.
Why is something so simple as talking into a camera so scary? It really does hit at some primal level fear. But good news I’m breaking through on this marketing strategy just like the others I have tackled in the last year. Like so many strategies of marketing, I listened to countless webinars, watched  You Tube Videos looking for style and substance. The verdict is this…be yourself..there is no secret to creating You Tube Videos. Be honest, be yourself and offer some valuable content…that’s it. After many videos you will feel more comfortable with the camera.
Video marketing is hot! People have less attention spans and are looking for a quick way to get information fast.

5. Internet Marketing Secret: You never know who’ll you’ll meet!

The past year has been a whirlwind of activity for sure but the most special part of it has been the people I’ve met online. Internet marketers share the same desire to conquer this thing called  internet marketing and reap the rewards. Not only have I met successful online entrepreneurs  but also people just beginning . Some have been from the USA but many others have been from other countries as well. You never know who’ll you’ll connect with on the world wide web. I’ve also learned that picking up the telephone to connect with your leads can be a joy and not to be feared. There are people out there in the same place I was in just a short year ago and any help and support you can offer is welcomed.

Summary for Internet Marketing My First Year:

As I write this blog post, I am out of the country on vacation and it was for this very reason I was drawn to the idea of  internet marketing in the first place. I wanted to work from anywhere and now I am doing it!   Wow, I’m really doing it and so can you!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

  “Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.”                             Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

7 Things about me

  1.  I was born in St Petersburg, Fl. and soon after my family  moved to Mobile, Al where I grew up and went to school. We lived “out in the country” and one of my jobs was to help feed the chickens and gather eggs. I was also very good at shelling butter beans
  2.  During High School I was  good at music and won the High School Band’s top award the  “John Phillip Sousa Award .”  My band director encouraged me  to go on to college and major in music but I declined. I was interested in medicine and wanted to apply to the Radiologic School of Technology at a local hospital.
  3.  After 26 months I became a Registered X-Ray Technologist and for a few years I worked at this mostly in surgery.   Then I became bored. I decided to learn Ultrasound. I became a specialist in Ultrasound and did CardioVascular Ultrasound Scans for the next many years until I retired
  4.  I have two daughters Abby and Carrie.
  5. I have been married 17 years to my husband Harold and we love to be on the water and in the water. We love to travel.
  6. I love Scuba Diving and have traveled to many exotic places to pursue this sport.
  7.  The Colors of the Caribbean   inspired me to pursue my passion for art.  I became a painter.  I sell my art in Art Shows and galleries locally.

My Nominees for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

I would like to pass the torch to 7 great bloggers who I think are very deserving of this award.

Fan Page Engine: Custom Facebook Tabs

Fan Page Engine for custom Facebook tabs.

If you’re trying to build your business online there is no better place than Facebook for finding traffic.     Fan Page Engine

I have been using Facebook Pay Per Click to drive traffic to my Fan Page.Once I get the traffic to my page I offer different affiliate products and I  also send the traffic to a  landing page provided by my primary company complete with lead capture form. When you’re using pay per click on Facebook you must have a landing tab to send the traffic to.

You will find there are many ways to create a custom landing tab and some of these  can be quite expensive. I have found an easy and  affordable way to create  a Facebook custom tab and I want to share this with you.

Fan Page Engine is where you will find  this easy and affordable solution.

They offer solutions to help internet marketers using Facebook to drive traffic. Fan Page Engine has gone through some changes with the new Facebook Timeline but I think the product is better than ever and more user friendly.

For $47 you get 10 customizable  tabs. There are many flexible themes to use for building your page. You can add photos, videos, and clickable buttons to help you drive traffic to your chosen url destination.

If I can use this app then so can you, I am not that techie, trust me, it is very user friendly. You can move widgets around or delete them all together. You can customize the header and the footer or do away with them, the choice is yours. Customize to your hearts content.

After you are finished with the customization process you name your tab and assign an icon to it then post it to your Facebook Fan Page via Fan Page Engine‘s integrated system.Your tab is now ready for traffic.

The tabs on your Facebook Fan Page are also adjustable. You can change their position in the tab lineup and set other features such as the tab image.

If you would like more information on this Facebook application here’s the link http://fanpageengine.com/ F.Y.I., I am not an affiliate of Fan Page Engine

I made a video showing you how I created my latest custom tab. Take a look and see how easy it is.

Obstacles To Your MLM Success: 4 Things To Consider

Obstacles To Your MLM Success: 4 Things To Consider

road to success sign

obstacles to your mlm success

We all get excited about things from time to time. Heck if we didn’t life would be kind of boring. When you made the decision to join MLM  you got excited about the opportunity and  you began to envision your success.  How do you keep that vision alive in the day to day process of trying to build your business. You know those days when nobody is interested in your company or your product and they treat you like a leper.

This blog post is about the obstacles to your MLM success. I’m writing it to not only help you the reader but also to help myself. I think we need to do some positive self talk  from time to time to keep us motivated. The obstacles below represent a drift in your mindset. Don’t let this happen, stick with the plan.

Here are some Obstacles To Your MLM Success

1. Not knowing  Your Why?

I know this has been beat to death  but it is so important. It doesn’t hurt to remind yourself occasional what your why is.

Write it down! Think about it. You can never have too much detail!

My why: I’ve always been driven to succeed. I had a great career but due to circumstances I no longer have that career ( I can fill you in on the details if you’re interested).  To fill the void and prove to myself that I can be successful once again. To set an example for my kids that you can do what you set your mind to. To leave a legacy for them not just in money but in tenacity. The good news is this:  I love a challenge, I’m not afraid to try. I love learning new things and I like helping people. I just wish I had started in MLM earlier. You can never have too many streams of income!

2. Not being committed:

Do you believe in what you are doing?

There was a point not too long ago I thought about getting a part time job. I talked to Harold my husband about it. I asked his advice on this. He’s pretty smart and usually thinks before he answers which is a very good thing. He asked me a question. He said “Do you believe in what you are doing?” I said without hesitation “Yes I do”, Harold said to me, “If you believe in what you are doing then I believe in you.”  Wow, what better support could you ask for? I can’t disappoint him and I can’t disappoint myself. I’m now more committed than ever.

3.  Not Having Passion:

You have to be passionate about what you are doing. I recently joined a company with products that I am really passionate about. Find your passion, stick with it and be the best you can be. That’s a good recipe for success!

4.  Losing Your Focus:

This is one of the major obstacles to your MLM success.

Lack of focus can be a big part of the problem especially in “internet marketing”  when you are not finding success. You have to focus on one thing until you get it right.

I remember when I took my scuba certification course I had no idea how hard it was going to be. The course I took was advanced open water. I had many days and hours in the pool learning all the skills I needed to remember for my first ocean dive. The day came to jump off the boat and  I was petrified! I was thinking so hard about all the things I needed to remember and had learned that I forgot to breathe! I panicked and had to surface! Do you ever feel that way with your internet marketing ? I’ll be honest, I do. Sometimes you just have to scale back and focus on one thing at a time until you get it right and then you will see success! Do one thing until you perfect it!

In conclusion remember these things: know your why, be committed, stay passionate and focus, it also doesn’t hurt to remember to breathe! To learn more ways to overcome the obstacles to your MLM success click here.
