There are 5 Keys to being successful💸
1. Stop working for some else. No one ever became rich working for someone else. Starting today, YOU decide to become YOUR OWN BOSS!
2. Do something different. Remember the definition of insanity, "Keep doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
3. You got to have leverage. You absolutely MUST find something which allows you to 'leverage' someone else's time or money. That's what rich people do; they get paid when other people do things! Guess what, you can too!
4. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Results will come faster.
5. MOST IMPORTANT: Take Action! This is the Biggie. Don't sit on the sideline, act now!
To be effective, you need the vehicle, don't you?
Well, if you're open to incorporate all these factors, then we need to talk.


Some Basic Marketing TIps

The Basics of Social Networking are not always basic.  
Social networking provides the meand to get more targeted traffic much easier and more effective than any old-fashioned methods. The great thing about using social networks is that you can generate a huge amount of traffic to your capture or landing pages.
The Basics of FACEBOOK Strategies:

Join groups.
After creating a dedicated Facebook account just for business, you should search for a groups  that are interested in getting what you are offering. Targeting the wrong people is a fast  way to get kicked out of a group and a HUGE WASTE of valuable time.
Trying to promote a revenue sharing site in a garage sale group (yes, I have witnessed this one)
***************************Sell yourself, not your products.*************************
Facebook is a great place to find referrals but in order to do that you must sell yourself first. Internet Marketers are always looking to build a strong reputation within their niche. Building a visible image with social media allows people to trust your offers and services and that’s a really good way to promote this business.
BRAND, BRAND, BRAND! (I'll go into this more in another post)
Be a relevant resource.
Becoming a trusted, and relevant resource is not difficult at all. Just providing your followers with helpful tools, tips that you have personally used that worked, motivational quotes, etc doesn’t take much time. The other person has done all the work, you just present it to your followers. The more you become a resource for them, the more they will refer to you to answer their questions.
Not too tough, right?
Keep your network strong. 
Make sure to keep in touch with people who converse with you, thank them for their comments, replying to their messages and comment on their statuses. You can set up 30 minutes – 1 hour a day where all you do is reply to people who have contacted you. Most people NEVER get a reply from “marketers” – so this will immediately set you apart from the everyone else  and again builds that trust in you as an authority and a resource.
Grow your network.
Social networks tend to have sort of a “snowball” effect where those on the outside want to “be in” – especially if they see your community is active and is constantly offering value to it’s members. IF you follow these basic strategies, in no time you will have hundreds if not thousands of friends on Facebook and since you are a trusted person in their eyes you will be able to market to each and every one over and over again.
Build Rapport
I can build rapport with people quickly because I chat with them based on how I think they talk from what I see on their wall posts. 
What about the voice feature in Facebook messenger?  This will help you every time!  Makes you seem like a real person!
Break the ice in a conversation by going through their wall for a minute to strike up a conversation instead of the boring "hi, how's business going?" ... if you're using that line, then it's not going to get anywhere because they will talk for hours about how amazing their product is!
People join people they like, trust, and relate to. They want a leader but also someone they are comfortable with. 
You can talk to someone for less than 15 minutes and make them feel like they have known you for 15 years. Well, maybe not quite 15 years....but you get the idea. 
This was all learned from trial and error.. once you master this skill, you'll be a network marketing pro!
Be a good listener and people will listen to you!!


Tip # 1.
Here is the most important thing...
Treat this Business like a Business.
Don't treat it like a hobby or a play thing! Take it seriously! The income you can earn is very serious. The changes you can make for your family are serious changes. You can become debt free! You can pay off your mortgage! You can provide the very best for your loved ones. You can build a legacy for your family! And in order to do all that, you need to be passionate about YOUR business.
Walt Disney built a empire and had fun doing it. He worked his dream and would not be deterred!
Tip # 2.
Stay focused.
Even your sponsor may be all over the place. Flying into one opportunity after another, back and forth always looking for the pot of gold over the rainbow. Never staying in one place long enough to gain success. Most people in networking do this, they keep jumping from company to company hoping to hit it big somewhere. Of course they never do. They just spend hundreds, even thousands starting a business and never follow through! Stay focused! The grass is always greener somewhere else, especially in the beginning!
After years of networking and our months and months of research we have determined that the "grass is greener" right here! Stick around for awhile and you will see why. Make a pledge to yourself that you have found a home! That this is the last network you'll ever build!
The Big Earners stay with One Company! Learn from their example!
Tip # 3.
Make a commitment to invest in YOUR Business.
Invest your Time. Invest your Energy. Invest your Money and Resources! And Continue To Do So! Understand this is just like any other business you would start. The rewards can be so much greater than anything else you could do. You need to water a garden to help it grow. You need to advertise your business to help it grow! You can do it through word of mouth or advertising, offline or online marketing. We suggest that you do it all.
Commit that you will continue to invest in your business!
Tip # 4.
There is Always a Way!
Whatever your situation, you can do this! Find a way! There is always a way! Some people are BROKE when they start but they find a way to borrow the funds to do what we needed to do. Let's face it if you are an adult (and I assume you are) and you don't have the money to grow your business, you need some major changes in your life. Because what you have been doing has left you in a position that you don't have a couple of dollars to launch YOUR business. STOP what you are doing! It is not working!
Anything you have ever really wanted in your life, if you really wanted it and worked to get it, I'll bet you got it! You CAN find a way to make this happen!
Tip # 5.
The Heavy chains of worry are heaviest in idle moments . . . get busy!
For things to get better you need to get better. For things to change you need to change.
Emulate a leader: Think of someone successful, ask yourself, "What would he do, well why don't I just do that?" And then just do it!
Continue to believe in yourself, you can do this!
Tip # 6.
Don't look upline . . . look in the mirror.
It is not the company, the system or the upline. It is working for thousands of others, ask yourself, "What else can I be doing?" Read motivating books! Be on all the conference and training calls.
Commit to work on yourself, get better and better!
Tip # 7.
Get in the game!
Always look to move up. Be a LEADER! Review Your websites. Listen to Your Conference Calls. Keep plugging in, 2-3 times a week, it will recharge your batteries. Listen and learn, the more you learn, the more you will earn.
Determine to be a LEADER!
Tip # 8.
Take ALL OUT MASSIVE ACTION for the next 30 . . .
60 . . . 90 days!
You are having a GRAND OPENING for your business. Have EVERYONE come and look! You want hundreds of people to visit your site in your first couple of weeks in business. Commit to do what ever it takes to make this happen! 
All Out Massive Action! Let the WORLD know you have a business opportunity for them to look at. Leverage the Power of the Internet to Grow your Business!
Put the blinders on for 90 days and take ALL OUT MASSIVE ACTION!
90 DAYS Minimum!
Tip # 9.
Listen to your upline. They want you to succeed.
Duplicate success! Follow the Leader! In the same vain DO NOT listen to NEGATIVE people, they will try and suck the life out of you. Hang with successful people and you become successful, hang out with losers and you'll be a loser too.
Make the commitment to listen to positive people and avoid negative influences.
Tip # 10.
Do the Basics over and over.
Expose Your Business! Drive traffic to your site DAILY!
Follow up with people who visit more than once.
Introduce prospects and new members to your upline (3-way call).
Make sure your new members are duplicating the System.
Use the 10 tips daily and watch your success SOAR!

BONUS TIP!  Get organized!

Commit To Making At Least 1 Referral Every 24-72 Hrs!
Before reading on, or even getting started, commit to yourself that you will stick with this until you have made at least 1-2 referrals every few days. You should be able to do this very easily with the information that is provided.
Now all you have to do is help others do what you did. You have the best opportunity you could possibly have.

The number #1 tip I can share with you is,

22 tips for a better life

Here are 22 different things that will improve your overall life.  Better life.  Better business.  Better you. 
1.  Think positive.  Negativity can drag you down and consume you.  Mindset is the foundation of all success!  Take a moment each day to read or watch something motivational.  Start your day with this over a cup of coffee.   Shake off all the negative thoughts and attack your day with a smile and an "I got this!" attitude.  
2.  Drink more water.  Sounds simple?  This rejuvenates you and will help you have the energy you need to attack your goals head on!  A rule of thumb for this tip?  You can get in eight glasses of water if you always have a bottle of water with you.  Whether it is at your desk, in your car, or watching television, keep it with you and you won't have any problem drinking enough.
3.  Wake up early.  Your body is truly designed for this.  I am up hours before my family everyday. It is the most productive part of my life. From 6 AM to 8 AM each day, I am able to blog, follow up with clients, and even shoot a video.  If you are a night-owl by nature, ease yourself into this tip by getting up a little earlier each day.
4.  Go to bed early.  Don't fight circadian beats.  This tip will get easier over time if you are already starting to get up earlier.  As humans, we are designed to sleep when the sun is down and be awake when it is up.  If it is just not doable, get as close to this cycle as you can.  Make as many of your sleeping hours while it is dark as possible.  
5.  Eat plant based foods. Too many preservatives can leave you feeling full, sluggish and mentally clouded. Choosing fruits or vegetables is choosing vitamins and minerals.  These types of foods are full of fiber and nutrients. 
6.  Exercise regularly. Working from home, it is easy to sit too long. Aiming for 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least five days a week is best.  If this is too hard to do, squeeze in ten minute bursts where you can.  Walk in place during a television commercial.  Get up from your computer chair every 30 minutes and do a few jumping jacks.  One that I do, and it may sound silly, is a 15 second squat each time I go to the bathroom.  If you are following the water tip, this will REALLY get you into shape fast!
7.  Practice yoga.  Anyone who has known me a long time knows my love of yoga. It doesn't have to be an hour of complex stuff.  A few peaceful moves can truly change your outlook. Trust me on this. It also stretches your muscles.  Again, long hours sitting (which is common when you work from home) can cause muscle stiffness.  
8. Get outside!  Fresh air will turn your mood and energy level around in a instant. Sit on your porch. Take a 5 minute walk. Walk barefoot in your yard. Anything. Open your windows whenever you can to let fresh air in but don't substitute this for time outside.  Sunshine and a breeze can give you a brand new outlook.
9. Read more!  Self development and some scripture every day. That is KEY!  Block out at least 10-15 minutes daily to spend working on YOU.  This can be watching videos online about improving your skill set, motivational readings about changing your mindset, or diving in to a self-development book.  Any successful person will tell you that daily reading is a MUST, so write it in your calendar and never skip it.
10. Make to-do lists.  I start each day with this.  Spread out my calendars and make a list. It is the simplest way to organize!  Write a title on each list.  For example, you could have a list of groceries to pick up, clients and team members to contact, and kids activities to attend.  Having a list is part of accountability.  Check off items as you go and it will give you a sense of accomplishment.  Nothing is more rewarded than a to-do list that is all checked at the end of the day.
11. Snack on healthy foods.  Don't sit by your computer inhaling chips. This brings that sluggish feeling back fast!  Dried fruit is my go to! I buy healthy snacks in bulk and every weekend portion them out into snack size baggies.  This keeps you from overindulging.  Mindless snacking at your computer or in front of the television is a bad habit and can be broken with a little planning.  Avoid buying unhealthy snacks and they won't be available when that unhealthy craving hits you.
12. Face your fears.  Are you afraid of a new idea or technique or venture?  I am here to tell you fear is the enemy. Fear is usually the main thing that stands between you and a better tomorrow. Find your fear and face it.  Watch what happens. Not only will you see new doors open, but success will suddenly be a reality.  
13.  Make a workout plan. Doesn't have to be complex.  Mine is 20 minutes on my stationary bike (while working from my phone). Follow this with 5 minutes of yoga. Planning and scheduling time makes it happen.
14.  Eat a healthy breakfast.  Mine?  Black coffee and apple slices with peanut butter.  I usually eat my breakfast while responding to yesterday's emails.  This way, saying "I don't have time for breakfast" won't be my excuse.  Eating breakfast gives you the energy to face the day and kickstarts your metabolism.  If you don't already eat breakfast, you will notice a big difference in your overall health and mood just by following this one simple tip.
15. Set goals.  I set daily, weekly and monthly goals.  I write them on the dry erase board in front of my computers. Goals help with focus and focus helps with fortune. Remember, though, your goals are not carved in stone.  I end each day re-evaluating my daily goal and revamping it if need be.  Goals can be for any area of your life but are an absolute must for business.  Without goals, how will you know if you are achieving anything?
16.  Do what makes you happy. Make sure you spend time with happy stuff.  Play with your kids.  Have a glass of wine. Crochet a scarf. I don't care what it is. Do it!  Daily!  It is easy to get so immersed and obsessed with your business, that you put yourself last.  This is a no no.  Having time that is devoted to happiness prevents the feelings of overwhelm that can lead to failure.  
17. Try new recipes. I love to cook and create.  It is a calming and rewarding thing.  Try a new recipe on the weekend.  Get your spouse and children involved.  Bonding with family over a new healthy recipe in the kitchen rejuvinates me.  If cooking really isn't your thing, take the family out to eat on Saturdays, and order something new.  

18. Stretch.  Before you exercise, stretch.  After you exercise, stretch.  When you get up in the morning and before you go to bed, stretch.  When you stand up from your chair, stretch.  Did I mention that you should stretch more?
19. Invest in a good foam roller.  Not only are these great for doing floor exercises and stretching, they can be used at the small of your back when sitting for long periods, under your knees when lying down to relieve small back pain, or behind your neck when reclining in a chair.  Resting for a few moments in a proper position can revive your mind and body and make you feel energized; ready to tackle the next big project!
20. Never stop learning. This tip cannot be stressed enough.  To grow a successful business, you should always be seeking new information.  The market changes.  Clients change.  Technology changes.  There is always more to absorb.  Look up videos on closing sales.  Read blog posts on writing ads.  When you evaluated your goals from yesterday, did you reach them?  If not, is there something you could learn today that would help you reach them in the future?  The internet is right at your fingertips!
21. Don't fear failure.  Each failure is a stepping stone. Embrace it! So many times in business, I see people give up after one set back.  Every "no" that you hear is getting you closer to your next "yes".  Every failed ad campaign is merely showing you what won't work and pushing you to what will.  Remember why you started and know that each failure is just part of the process.

22. Say no. Not every team member needs you at their disposal all day long.  You don't need to be a super hero for the PTA.  If you always say yes to everything, you are just saying no to yourself and your own business.  Don't ever become overwhelmed. If you do, however, feel overwhelmed at any time, just take a break.  I have been known to take an entire week off and not even look at my email.  Taking a break is always better than giving up!
