Biggest Mistake Most Networkers Are Making in Their Business

If you are a serious networker, read on.

Here is the most common mistake that most network marketers make in
their business -

spending WAY too much time telling people about how great their
product or opportunity is, and in most cases, no time telling their
prospect HOW this is going to make a difference in their life and
how they are going to actually "do it."

Sound familiar?

Especially in today's economy, people are looking for how this is
going to make a difference financially. They need to know what
exactly they are going to be doing, what are the steps they are
going to take.

Many people who are looking certainly feel as if they have burned
bridges with much of their warm market throughout the years and
they want a new school method of attracting solid prospects.

Because the reality is, even though that warm market list is still
a viable way for many people to launch their business, if your new
business builder does not believe for him or herself that this will
work for them, it won't!

So, why not be prepared to offer a way that creates a strong,
empowered business partner; one who feels capable of really making
a business work this time?

And, backing up for a moment, why not create this for yourself? Why
not learn the techniques of attraction marketing that get people
coming to you, instead of you chasing them.

In other words, become the hunted, not the hunter? Doesn't that
just sound better?

I'm going to offer two suggestions for you today. What you do with
them is really up to you, but if you are ready to stop talking
about online business success and start making it happen, you'll
strongly consider these.

First, get signed up for Mike K's university. It's not perfect, and
no one thing is, but the overview you'll get will give you some
solid insight into the "how-to's" of online business and team

Click the Red Button to Get Started and Listen as Mike shares some
concepts that you'll be using.

Be sure to go to Step 3 and watch the 2nd Webinar Video - How Blogs
Bring Prospects. Good stuff you'll want to know. It's an hour, so
plan on it.

Go through and get a basic overview.

Second, get my Online Marketing e-book and learn the step by step
process to get yourself out on the internet and create your own
internet Hub. This is how people find you. I've used the steps
offered here consistently over the past 9 years to become a million
dollar income earner in Network Marketing.

I would love to be your personal success coach to teach you how to
be a solid Internet Marketer, with a strong Network Marketing
business and other cash flow that will sustain you in business.
This will support your marketing efforts as you work to create a
very lucrative Network Marketing business.

And, you'll duplicate this on down the line. Some people will tell
you this can't be done, but I strongly disagree. I've been doing it
for 9 ½ years. It works if you will work it!

So, are you ready? Ready to seriously take action today?

Let me hear from you on what you think. I would love to hear how
things are working for you.

And, be watching for more training and resources from me on how to
pull this all together. Questions? Reply Contact me!

What is the system, asked my MLM Downline Partner

I was recently asked by a member of my downline "What's our system and how do I find it?" Well, for me, the word "system" is always a tricky subject. There are several "systems" that can be used, and what is the best will depend a lot on the individual.

First, let me say that I define "system" as the method for finding prospects to contact, presenting, following up, sponsoring and duplicating, so there are several components to the "system."

There is the "warm market" system, which is what I consider a business launch, and the most simple system. It's a system of notifying those you know that you are in business. Simply notifying. Not bugging, harassing, or begging!

The system you use to present the information about your business should be pre-planned, and there should be several methods depending on your prospects needs and ability to receive information.

There is the mailed packet; email; website overview; 3 way call; opportunity call, etc. Check with your upline and see what is recommended.

After that, there are other "systems" available – running ads, buying leads, Chamber of Commerce/BNI, Shows and Expos, Walking and Talking, etc. Actually, these are the first steps in the system, or method for finding prospects.

Then, there is the internet and the ability to create a whole, new warm market online.

For me, I am an internet marketer and that is by choice. I consider myself to be an internet marketer FIRST, and within that I align with a network marketing company as my primary (but not only) revenue source.

There are many "systems" out there and the key is finding what is going to be a fit for you and fine tuning your target market to that way of doing it. There is someone for every system and way of building the business. Don’t let anyone tell you that one particular way of doing things is wrong, slower, won't work, or non-duplicable. Every system will work if it is right for the person working it.

I've been told repeatedly that the internet system will never work and yet I have enormous success behind me, as do others on my team using that method to disprove that theory. Will it work for someone who despises technology and has no interest or passion for learning the internet? No.

Just like the shy, introvert who would rather die than do public speaking will not succeed with a system involving BNI and Chamber of Commerce meetings. Does it work? Sure, for the right individual.

I do this same basic thing as the simple, warm market system except I put a more technical step into it with the personal website. And, I build warm market using the internet and use more of an attraction marketing approach. This method won't be for everyone, and that is okay. I am very clear on the market I am targeting and I am willing to be patient until those people who match my demographic desire show up, if that makes sense.

I am very clear that my target is those who do embrace technology and want to learn to utilize this amazing tool as a method of business building.

Market leading with the product and you get people who want to sell products and not always those who want to build a team, so duplication stops. Market with the opportunity and you get people who are coachable about the team building side of things.

Decide who you want to market to, who you want to work with and how you want to work your business and find a coach/mentor who will pave the way for you!

Climbing the LAST, Long, Steep Hill in Your Success Journey

Today, when I set off on my morning walk at Ventura Beach, I headed inland toward the foothills of the city. Although I love walking the beach strand, with the seagulls, surfers, walkers and fresh ocean scent, I wanted a tougher work out.

I've walked this area before but as I came around a familiar turn, I saw a steeper road leading up further on the hill than I had ever noticed before. "Oh, geez" I thought. I didn't want to do it. My immediate instinct was –"no, I've done enough, time to head back." And, that second, small, inner voice said – "C'mon wimp. You wanted a tougher workout. Think how good you'll feel once you are at the top."

"I'll just go half way" said the first small voice and I headed up. I had already put in a solid walk, lots of up and down the foothills, and my heart rate was definitely up. After a 15 second internal battle of the wills, I knew that I had to keep climbing. I had to push myself just a little further and get that extra burn and, more importantly, that feeling of accomplishment!

As I got to the top and turned around to head back down, I stopped in my tracks. The view was stunning. All of Ventura Harbor, the Channel Islands and the wide open ocean spread out before me. A sailboat regatta was just coming out of the harbor along with 2 charter boats of visitors to the islands. Surfer's Point was off to the right and the water was filled with surfers, anticipating the next great wave. I couldn't believe my payoff for making the climb!

What if I had cut it short and missed the view from the top? What if I had decided that enough was enough and I would just "settle" for the norm? What if I had let the first small voice win out and determine my destiny for that day?

Do you ever do this in your business? I sure have. My network marketing career has been filled with days of "settling." I've had goals of making 10 dials and stopped after making the first call when someone hung up on me. I've made a business plan for the next day and scrapped it in favor of reading a good book because that was easier.

Ultimately, though, over time, I made the decision to keep going. Once I realized that it wasn't going to kill me, I made the decision to push myself a little more. And, then a little more. And, even more!

There are many hills to climb in building a Network Marketing business and many pop up when you least expect it. Sometimes, you'll come around a corner and see a really long hill that you hadn't seen before. You know you've walked that path, but you swear that hill wasn't there before. You have to climb that long, last hill for the day. You have to climb it every time it shows up. You may be tired, out of breath and out of water, but you do have it in you to keep pushing forward.

Just like the view of the harbor from the top of the hill on my walk, the view from the top of your successful network marketing business is incredible. Indescribable, even. Filled with things you can't even imagine.

On a recent call with John Fogg, he asked me what the best thing has been for me about network marketing. Without missing a beat, or thinking it through, I answered with the very first thing that came to mind – personal peace, satisfaction and the feeling of accomplishment.

It's not the money; the title; the plaques and awards. Those are nice, and they felt good at the time. But nothing even comes close to the feeling I have knowing that I did it. I hit the top 1% or smaller of network marketers. I pushed against the odds and overcame the biggest obstacle of all, myself, and made it to the top.

Nothing can ever take that away. Nothing. It's mine and I own it. I want you to own it, too. Put on your walking shoes and take the journey to the top. You can’t even imagine what you will find there.
