Do you often wonder how to accomplish everything you want to accomplish? A Planning Process is the Key!

When you have a home business, often times, you have many distractions and forces pulling you in many different ways. For me, I have my family, my job, my pets, and many outdoor activities, pulling me in different directions. I learned years ago, that a planning process is key in helping me accomplish what I need to accomplish

A Proper Planning process, takes into account personal life, your business and your JOB. For me, if I didn’t have a planning process, I’d be much less productive

I have broken down my main business activities into a few key actions. I plan these activities out on Sunday morning. Every week, I plan the next week and review the previous week. I break down my non-negotiable activities into small chunks of time. I then place these activities onto my planner and into my Google Calendar. I keep my planner with me, at all times. This way I have total visibility of all my responsibilities at all times. I hope this helps you Crush every day like a Super Hero! Want a copy of my activity planner? Opt in to my blog and comment on my blog post. I will email you my activity planner FREE .(Please email me and let me know you did this!)

Are you looking to Leverage the Internet for your business and not sure how? Blogging is the answer!

If you’re like me and most entrepreneurs, the answer is YES. But there’s SO MANY tools and programs for blogging, where do I start? Where to start is what slows most people from taking that first step..Here’s my product review of what I’m using.

The search that led me to blogging started last February when I was visiting with Ray Higdon for a cup of coffee. Blogging

I was in Fort Myers and I had reached out to Ray about a meeting. I was excited to get an opportunity to meet Ray and pick his brain. I’m committed to building a massive business and whom better to turn to for advice, but Ray Higdon. He’s grown a massive business in under 10 years. Earning over 4 million per year leveraging the internet via blogging  and teaching others to do the same.

I prepared a list of questions, revolving around what I was currently doing and what I wanted to achieve.

It was abundantly clear quickly, that the next step for my business was attraction marketing via blogging. Now I knew what I needed to do, but I wasn’t clear how...

I dragged my feet for 9 months, knowing what I needed to do for my business, but not being sure how to do it..

Then, I watched yet another webinar from Ray. But this one was different, he laid out the blue print for blogging. Ray also had created a training product called “The 3 Minute Expert” to help me get started.  Ray originally perfected blogging for his Real Estate business. Now he’s utilizing it for network marketing.

My business, Lifestyle Design International, has ALL the tools I needed. Some of these tools are

LDI also has built in training! There are weekly training webinars. There’s a “Half Hour of Power call”,Monday, Wednesday & Friday that is hosted by the absolute best minds in the business! The  call is phenomenal!!

Training videos for EVERYTHING related to your business. Training videos for EVERYTHING related to internet marketing. Training videos for all kinds of marketing strategies!!  This program will take YEARS off your learning curve. It has mine.

Getting people started quickly, is one of the 4 pillars of having a successful mlm business.

 

If you’re business is like mine, than the business is built for speed. And you need to be able to get new partners started quickly, if you have any hopes of success. IF a new partner is not earning money in his first 28 days, odds are good, that they will not be around for very long. This is what usually leads to high attrition rates in mlm companies.

When I get someone started, I first sit with them, in person if possible, otherwise, over the phone.

  1. First thing we do to get someone started, is enroll the new team member. (5 minutes)
  2. Now I assist in setting up the banking for the new member. It helps to get paid!(5 minutes)
  3. Now the new member is ready for University. Your business may or may not have a similar step. My partners need to be compliant with many energy regulations. (30 minutes)
  4. The training starts here. First thing is to develop a strong why. Your why is the most important step in success. It must be strong, if you are to overcome obstacles. It can’t be “Money”. More like, money to do what and why?
  5. Here I show the partner how to contact others and invite them to see your business. There is an art to this step. This, to me, is the step  you need to spend the most time on. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT(10 minutes)
  6. Show The Program. This is called an exposure. The partner is showing the prospect the business plan, in my company this is by video.(5 minutes)
  7. The last item I train a new partner for, is goal setting. I help set up 90, 60 and 30 day goals. We then also set daily and weekly goals. We also discuss the next 14 days in detail. I let my new partner know, He/She is going to be in contact with me, every day over the next 2 weeks. I ask if this is ok.(15 minutes)

That’s all I teach on the first training meeting. I only throw what is relevant, right now, at the new partner. This way the partner is not overwhelmed, as they often are anyways.

Having a hard time getting on track(or Back on Track) with your business or life? Create a new reality!

I recently was on a MLSP “Morning Wake Up call” and picked up these nuggets of wisdom about creating a new reality.

  1. Surround Yourself With Champions. Just because you don’t live where there’s regular business meetings, or can’t make it to the company event this quarter, doesn’t mean you can’t surround yourself with champions. Read books, listen to audio books, watch webinars, be on company conference calls, there are MANY ways to surround yourself with champions. Make this way of life your new reality
  2. Behave like a champion. Copy the behaviors you see the champions exhibiting. Start 1 with behavior or habit. Then add another and another. (This book explains this effect! )new reality
  3. Nobody Controls you but you. You determine your life. Take responsibility immediately for all situations in your life. If you don’t like them, change them. “You’re not a tree”Jim Rohn
  4. A Decision is nothing without action. Action is the key to all change and success! Take action on all of your decisions, immediately. Plan, Do, Review! Make sure you plan and review these actions!
  5. Use your Imagination. “Play the Part, until your reality changes” Have Courage!!!
  6. Immerse yourself in your vision. Live into your vision. Make your vision  your reality!

Do you Have a Development Plan for 2016?

IF you don’t have a road map or development plan to create a major breakout in 2016? It’s time to create one.

Here’s a recap of a recent conference call with Bob Quintana

The First question to ask yourself.  What’s your biggest Triumph that you’d like to accomplish in 2016? For me, it’s a 6 digit year from my part time, home business. This will allow me to have DUAL 6-digit incomes. When the economy crashed, it wiped out all of my savings and investments. Thus, I’m still rebuilding and 2 incomes will help GREATLY!

The Second question to ask yourself. Are you Committed to doing this? I’m committed to making this happen and I’ve created a very specific day/week/month plan and review to make this happen! Third question to ask yourself. What Personal Development are you committed to doing, to make this happen? I’m committed to continue learning skills that I need to take my business to the top! I’m going to register for another Landmark program The 4th and final question.  Where do you rank in your Tri Lateral Leadership ranking? This is a leadership score developed by Orrin Woodward and discussed in “Launching a Leadership Revolution”. This is my personal favorite leadership book. I’m currently re-reading it for my 4th time.Development Plan

  • Character. How’s your Integrity? Humility? Dependability?
  • Tasks. How effective are you? Do you accomplish tasks on time?
  • Relationships. How do you relate to others?

You should rank yourself 1-10 in all of those categories. Then multiply all 3 numbers and a perfect score would 1000. This is where Orrin Woodward lives. To recap, I’ve now provided you 4 very important questions to assist you in creating a development plan to create a BREAKOUT 2016!

How often do you reach your goals? If you’re like me, probably not often! So, I’ve often wondered, “How do I perform effective goal setting?”

Well, lucky for you and I, Ray Higdon, just wrapped up a webinar covering goal setting. I’m going to share my takeaways with you!

Annual goals are OK, IF there’s a series of smaller goals leading to the larger goal. Thus, when goal setting, if you have annual goal of adding 100 new people to your business, you should break that down into quarterly and monthly goals. If your baseline is you successfully recruit 20% of the people you present to, into your business.

  • Then you would need to present to 500 people for the year.
  • Quarterly= 125 presentations
  • Monthly = 42 presentations
  • Weekly = 11 presentations

This is the amount of presentations you’d need to make to recruit 100 people into your business. It’s much more effective breaking your goal down into manageable chunks. If you don’t do that, it’s easy to get discouraged. Also, when you don’t reach your goals, you break your word to yourself. This means you are now out of integrity to yourself. You need to keep your word to yourself to keep high self esteem and so you believe you deserve the rewards. Thus, many smaller goals leads to many smaller rewards and celebration and keeps self esteem high. For me, this is the game changer!

A couple more take away’s from Ray’s webinar

  • If you want to double your income, triple your actions!
  • Write your daily goals down on a note card and keep this note card with you
  • CELEBRATE ALL successes!
  • Your excitement grows as you grow
  • Add 1 MAJOR skill per year. Example, this year I’m adding internet marketing. I’m also adding Webinars. Yes, I’m adding 2 Major skills. I will be holding webinars monthly(for now, more often in the future)

When I meet and interview a potential new business partner, I often hear the same excuses on why someone won’t be successful in business.With a little Life Coaching you can get past these “reasons”

To new Entrepreneurs, this can sometimes get frustrating. I used to be one of those frustrated Entrepreneurs. Fifteen years later, I’ve been around for awhile and worked on myself, big time! I’ve had some Life Coaching from mentors and personal development programs. Now, I see these excuses as self limiting belief, that only exist in someone else’s world. The first step is to identify the self limiting belief. The top 5 I hear are:

  1. I’m not a salesperson. I love this one. Especially when, you don’t need to be a salesperson. But, unfortunately, some people have that mental block and can’t get past it. First off, sales is about relationships. All you need to do is build and grow the relationships. If you focus on that, you will be fine. Provide value and the marketplace will work with you. In my business opportunity, the only sale, is selling the appointment. After you have made the appointment, the tools and your sponsor(up line), do the rest of the work. It really is as simple as that.
  2. I can’t change who I am. As Jim Rohn saysIf you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” This means, you CAN change. You just need to want to change. Another saying is “There is no can or can’t, only will or won’t.” People need to wipe the word “can’t” from their vocabulary. Instead use the word “won’t”. My wife often says “I can’t wake up early” Wrong, you can, you just choose not to.(I’m not afraid to put this in my blog, because my wife won’t read this anyways, but that’s for another post on) If you want change, you just need to change your habits. It really is that simple. IF you want to learn a new trade or get in shape, but are having a difficult time, finding the time, get up earlier! Create that habit. Or block off a certain hour in your calendar and set a reminder in your phone, for every day at that time to study or workout, or whatever it is, that you WANT to do. As my parent’s always told me growing up “You can do anything you want to do” Unfortunately, I had a difficult time being an NFL Linebacker at 5’6″ running a 5.0 40 yard dash. So I’m hear speaking to you instead. If you’re looking to create some positive habits and don’t know where to start, some Life Coaching is a good place to start. Seek out a mentor to help with that.
  3. “I don’t know anybody” Simple solution for this self-limiting belief also. Meet people! Talk to people! Join a business networking group. Speak to your neighbors, your server, your barber, the person sitting next to you at Starbucks. Go to “meetup.com” Find a group that fits. There are thousands! Also, there’s the internet. On Facebook there are groups for anything you can think of. And many of them! You just need to break out of your comfort zone.
  4. I don’t have enough time. We all only have 24 hours in a day. And we are ALL using all 24 hours. None of us have “spare” time. We all use our time based on our priorities. Some of us feel we need 4 hours of TV or more, some feel 2 hours, some feel 1 hour, some of us don’t watch tv at all! (Maybe a Bears game here or there…) I promise, if you believe you don’t have enough time to take on a new opportunity, let me spend some time with you. I will help you find some time. We all have areas of our life that we could be more efficient at. Everybody has the same amount of time in the day. If you’re someone who wishes you had more time (like 99 percent of the world), what you’re really asking for is a better way to manage your priorities so you can optimize the time you already have. If you’d like help, email me and I will help! I’ve added Life Coaching to my list of things that I’m willing to help with.
  5. My family or job needs me. IF this is true, you need to improve your leadership ability. As Lau Tzu, the ancient philosopher once said, “A leader is best when people barely know he exists. Of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, ‘we did this ourselves.’” Once again, with a little Life Coaching, you can learn to be a more effective leader.

If you’ve attempted these things and you’re still struggling, I recommend Landmark. Landmark can help you eliminate ALL self-limiting beliefs. Landmark will allow you to do some Life Coaching for yourself! It has worked for me.

Have you ever had the chance to speak to someone you admire or want to work with and you had a chance to speak up, but you froze? Or how about, living your life to a lower standard and knowing what you need to do, but not doing it..being stuck in a rut that you can’t get out of.

Many of us have been in a situation like this. Be it, a top business prospect, a potential customer, or a person you’re attracted to and you’d like to ask them on a date. All of us have been there. Most of us have frozen and not been able to speak what you want to speak, if you even speak at all.

If you’re an entrepreneur, these prospects go on your “Chicken Shit list” Attack this list if you’re looking for a positive change in your life.

Or maybe you’re in a dead end relationship or job, maybe a loved one is an addict or alcoholic. Many of us are afraid to speak up or do anything about what’s bothering us.

Does any of this apply to you? Do you have a chicken shit list? Want to know the key to getting rid of this list or JOB? Or the key to making positive change in your life? Simple one word answer, Courage.  Courage is taking action in the face of fear. Pretty profound, right? Yes, so simple, it makes you almost feel stupid when you think of it. 

Courage is the key to unlocking you’re freedom. Courage to let the past go. Courage to tackle new opportunity. Courage to speak up at work. Courage to speak up to a friend or loved one. Courage to take ACTION.

Want to know the key to courage? ACTION. Yes, once again, action is the key! By taking action, you start the ball rolling, creating some momentum, which leads to more action, which leads to more action, and so on… When you take action, you also feel better and you will now feel like taking the actions you need to take. (Even though, you should not live according to how you feel) So if you’re looking for a positive change in your life, courage is the key to taking action.

In Landmark, the forum leader used a tennis analogy. Imagine watching a tennis match. The ball goes back and forth, over and over. You watch this, but can not affect what is going on. Now, jump in the game. Take action, participate in the game, even get to the point where you dictate the game. This is life. Life happens for you, not to you(Thanks for sharing Brian Fanale!). Life is your tennis court. It’s up to you to create the action, so you quit looking for a positive change in your life and start BEING positive change in your life!

 

 

I recently met with the a business mentor of mine. He’s the president of  a large company. (200+million in annual revenue, maybe more?).

We have an annual meeting to catch up with each other. I’ve known my friend, Gary, for 20 years. He’s always been someone that I could share ideas with and talk business with. He’s one of the most successful people I know. So I was excited to meet with him and I planned on showing him my green energy business presentation. We spent most of our time catching up and sharing stories, till we were almost done, I almost blew it! But, I did not, even though I was not sure what he’d think. I knew I had something good to share with him. I had courage and asked if I could share it with him. He said “Yes, of course”. And he liked it! I’m sure many additional opportunities will arise out of me taking action in the moment. As I’ve stated before and I took this from Landmark, I am the possibility of Freedom, I am the possibility of Courage, and I am the possibility of Compassion.
