I don’t know about you, but I often enter my home office(my basement) and wonder, “How can I Improve productivity?” While my kids are running around shooting me with Nerf Guns.

For me, my goal is freedom! Not to work all of the time! That’s a fine line to walk.  I recently had a coaching call with Adam Chandler, and he highlighted how important it was for me to improve productivity.  In an effort to get that productivity, I’ve been searching for some rules to apply to my processes. Given that I have a full time job AND three young boys, it’s key, that I increase my productivity. I picked up a few things from Adam and also, Tim Ferriss in his book, “The 4 Hour Work Week”. (Thanks Alex Hogan for recommending!) Improve productivity

  1. You must have a quiet space and quiet time. If you’re at work, put up a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your cubicle or office door. IF you’re at home, make sure your spouse and kids know, you are NOT TO BE DISTURBED.
  2. Often times, we are interrupted most my emails or your phone ringing. I’ve recently updated my email and voicemail l to say  “Due to high workload, I am currently checking and responding to email twice daily at 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
    If you require urgent assistance,(Please ensure that it is URGENT) that cannot wait until either 12:00 PM or 4:00 PM, please TEXT me”
    Thank you for understanding this move to more efficiency and effectiveness, It helps me to accomplish MORE by eliminating interruptions.”
  3. Outsource what you can. I stink at tech stuff. So, I recently outsourced some website design stuff, to a friend of mine that is much better at that stuff than I am. But, you also can outsource to people in China and India. When outsourcing anything that decisions must be made on, make sure you have a CLEAR set of rules to go by.
  4. I recommend having a daily list of activities. You also should have 3-4 non-negotiable activities on this list. Activities that you MUST do. Quite often, I don’t accomplish all that I set out to do, but when I have those 3-4 must-do’s, I knock those out. If you’re like me, sometimes your day gets away from you… Don’t beat yourself up and be down on yourself. This is counter-productive. Just remember, tomorrow is a new day. Start the next day right and get back on track!
  5. Plan phone calls to leads, prospects, and follow ups, in advance! Every day at 6 PM, I plan my following day. My 3-4 MUST DO activities along with the phone calls I’m going to make. IF I don’t do this, I usually forget to make those calls. So for me, this is very important to plan ahead.

IF these guidelines resonate for you, please use what I’ve shared. Otherwise, I strongly recommend creating your own guidelines to increase productivity

I recently heard my mentor speak of a Quantum Leap. It sure got my attention!

My mentor, Bob Quintana recently spoke of this on his “Kick It off with Q” Call. This is a Monday morning, mindset call hosted by Bob.

 

Instead of this being, just a normal old leap year, I’m going to make this a Quantum leap year!

My quantum leap year will be cover my income, my career and most important, my life.

A Quantum leap is when a particle makes an explosive jump from one place to another. Where it doesn’t seem to make sense. Similar to counting, starting at 1.  2 comes next, but what if you skip the next 5 steps… This is a quantum leap

And this can happen to you, if you’re open to it and expect it. You must believe in every fiber of your body that this will happen. It all starts with mindset.

Learn more about a Quantum Leap in my video.

What is “I.L.T”?.. If you study top entrepreneurs, you will often hear this term. But, what is it? How do I do it?

I is short for invest. Invest time or money. But often both! You can’t be cheap on investing in yourself. Short the other areas, but not yourself. You must Invest to start the “I.L.T”

L is short for learn. When you invest your time and money, be sure to take notes, study, do everything you can to apply and make record of what you learn. Me, I keep all of my notes from books,webinars, calls, etc… in Evernote. This is a cloud based filing system that I use in many areas of my life. I love it!

T is what I’m doing right now, Teaching. Every time you learn something, teach others!

What is “I.L.T”? Watch the above video

1)Focus. Focus on simple strategies and perfect them. Practice them every day. After you’ve perfected them, add a new strategy. Stick to 1 new strategy at a time.

2)KISS. Keep it simple and stupid. Don’t overthink things

3)Vision. Have a clear and precise vision.

I’ve often wondered, “How’s my Vision?” I’ve never really heard a really known if I was doing it “right”

I’ve heard Ray Higdon, Brian Fanale, Eric Worre, John Pyonteck, and many other Entrepreneurs use this term. I used to think vision was just having an idea and plan where I wanted to go. Since I’ve joined Jeff Lerner, I’ve been able to learn more on this topic.

Vision is extremely important. You should have a vision that “pulls” you

This vision should be a clear picture of what you expect to accomplish and more importantly, how it makes you feel. You vision should be clear on the type of person you are. Watch my video to hear more on vision.

Most people think Adversity is a bad thing. Most people are wrong!

I recently listened to a conference call, featuring Ron Gelok. adversity

Ron spoke about adversity and he had some great points, that I’d like to share.

As Entrepreneurs and even just human beings, we are clay. Adversity molds us into something of value.

If you aren’t willing to be molded, you will NEVER reach that place of value. When we find something uncomfortable, many people just skip over this or avoid it. That’s a shame..Pain when working out, is a good thing!  You only grow by fighting through the adversity.

Every time we do the uncomfortable activity, it gets easier and easier and we are growing. Another example from Ron, when metal is formed into a sword, the sword is placed in fire first, very hot, then the metal is pounded as its molded into a sword. Then he places the sword back into the fire. While the sword is in the fire, the impurities come to the surface, the blacksmith scoops these impurities out. Then he pulls the sword back out of the fire and pounds and molds it more. Then, after much work and molding, the sword is perfected!

It’s during the most adverse times that we grow the most. We gain the most strength!

If you’re not willing to go through adversity, then we are not willing to receive the gift of strength.  Be present in this process and be grateful. Have gratitude. When Jesus and the apostles started  sharing the word of the lord, they faced much adversity, and they were grateful for this.

When you’re on the brink of breakthrough is when the adversity is the greatest. You must push through this! I’ve experienced this working on my blog, dealing with tech issues. But I realized, I must push through the tech challenges online. Push through the fire. And I will be much better off, in multiple ways, by doing this. When I implement as I go, I am being stretched and molded, a la molding clay.

I’m excited to be serving my community in an abundantly excellent way!  I am making a significant impact on  many communities. Entrepreneurs, family and friends, and more importantly, the world!

Ever heard the saying “Leaders are Readers”?

Yep, because it’s true! Leaders typically have a thirst for more knowledge! From an early age my mom always encouraged me to read. And I’ve always been a bookworm, thanks to her! Thanks Mom!

Those that want to be leaders have 2 way to learn, making their own mistakes or learning from other’s experiences/mistakes.

I choose both! 🙂 Here are my 10 favorite books, not in order.

  1. Think & Grow Rich leaders
  2. Failing Forward leaders
  3. The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership  Leaders
  4. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Leaders
  5. Go Pro leaders
  6. Born To Win Leaders
  7. When the Buck Stops With You leaders
  8. The Richest Man in Babylon leaders
  9. As a Man Thinketh leaders
  10. The Science of Getting Rich Leaders
  11. And saving best for last!!! Launching a Leadership Revolution leaders

Special mention going to “I will NEVER Do Network Marketing” by my good friend, Joe Occhiogrosso. leaders LOADS of Value here in these books. If you buy all 12 now, you’d spend less than $100 on priceless information. I recommend picking up all of these books(or any you haven’t yet read). You can click any of those links to purchase the books on Amazon.

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!!

(563,999,1098; 879710# is PIN) This call is Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 10 AM Central. All the calls are recorded and archived in our dashboard. 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!
