How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 7 Your beliefs

One of the most powerful single factor in your success is your belief about yourself, about the company, about your industry. Whatever you intensely believe becomes your reality.

Lack of belief is shown when blaming others for your failure, your challenges. It is never your fault, it is your upline’s fault, your company’s fault, the compensation plan is too complicated, it is binary and that is why you don’t make money in Network Marketing.  You will always find excuses !

To build and create the success you want for you and for your family, you need to change the belief in yourself, you need to find the willpower in you. Willpower is based on confidence, conviction, faith and on your ability to achieve you what you put your mind into. To develop willpower, you need to be persistent and work on your goals – reading books, listening to audio, watching some trainings. Also read some biographies of successful people or listen to their stories and  you will understand that most top earners have been through a lot before they got successful. It will inspire to push you through the obstacles and difficulties you will experience.

Too many people think that they are not good enough, not slim enough, not educate enough and the list can go on..

Your mind can be your biggest asset or your worse enemy.

“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.” – Roy T. Bennet

Self-mastery, self-control, self-discipline are essential for anyone who wants to achieve their goals. The more you practice thinking and talking about what you desire the most and the more you will start seeing signs and people that will help you to achieve your dreams. Repeat to yourself the words, pictures and thoughts consistent with your dreams and goals. Think bigger, faster and out of the box. 

Don’t create a lifestyle of mediocrity; if you want something bad , you will find a solution even if you have people around you that are negative, that don’t believe in you. Don’t get caught with what people might think.

You need to have a plan: maintain focus on your personal progress, keep a journal and write your goals, your intention, your affirmations, your gratitude. Each time you achieve a goal, even small, celebrate it to keep you motivated.

Do not compare yourself to others. You are unique, authentic and beautiful. Your followers want to do business with YOU because you are different and you share great content and bring value; they are attracted by your story and not someone else.

“Don’t compare yourself to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.” – Regina Brett

You need also to believe in your company, your product and industry. Never apologize to be part of Network Marketing. Explain to them that it is no pyramid scheme 🙂  Also very important, be the product of the product and share it to the world.

Try getting your own mantra with positive self belief words, like

  • I am fearless
  • I am a winner
  • I am a leader
  • I am an achiever

With effort and time, you can change your beliefs and develop a mental strength to overcome the self-limiting beliefs that prevent you from reaching your full potential.

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 6 Be passionate and enthusiast

When people are living from passion they tend to be fulfilled, happy, healthy and love everyone around them. The passionate entrepreneurs are driven by more than just money but by living a fulfilled life.

Enthusiasm and passion go together, it is a divine energy that will help you pursuit your dreams and stay focus to follow your path. The difference between those who push through difficult times and those who do not is passion.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Nelson Mandela

Enthusiasm is the most obvious feature in a person looking for his mission, his path. He lives life fully, enjoys every moment, and lives in the present not in the past. Passion is your drive and love of what you do. You see the world differently because you have a clear vision of your goals, you don’t get distracted and use your energy entirely towards the manifestation of your dreams. When experiencing fear or doubts, you won’t be paralyzed, you will work to find a solution.  Once you discover your real passion, you’ll organize your entire life around it and you’ll radiate a lot of self-confidence. This is the type of person you want to become to show your followers you are a leader and you are ready to bring them to the next level.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Winston Churchill

Unfortunately sometimes your friends and family don’t see it at the time and it shouldn’t discourage you to follow your dreams. Try to be surrounded with people like you, with happy, enthusiast people and start step by step with consistency to see results.

Once you show enthusiasm and passion to your followers and share your knowledge and skills, you will see more and more people reaching out to you. You will become more creative and inspire those around you with your story. You’ll have the courage to continue your project no matter what, and nothing and nobody will stop you.

When you are in Network Marketing, you need to use your product or service, and only if you are passionate with what you are taking or using, you will be able to pass on the message. People can feel fake people so you want to be real and authentic and you want to share your opportunity to the world. It is at that time that you will realize that you are in the right team, doing the right opportunity or are taking the right product.

What is your true passion?

What makes you excited about what you are doing?

Get out of this life of misery, do what you like, do what feels good, have faith and start finally living your real life!

What is Kombucha and its benefits

I got introduced to Kombucha not long ago. I got sick and had to take 2 rounds of antibiotics and if you know me well I don’t like taking medicines so I checked what I could do to cleanse my liver. Antibiotics help fighting infection but also harm good bacteria in your body.

 

What is Kombucha?

Known as the “Immortal Health Elixir” by the Chinese and originating in the Far East around 2,000 years ago, Kombucha is a beverage with huge health benefits extending to your heart, your brain and especially your gut.

Kombucha is a traditional fermented drink made of black tea and sugar and contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Kombucha also contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases

How is it made?

Kombucha is a sweetened tea that is fermented with a SCOBY (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) to become a nutrient-rich beverage. SCOBY is a collection of microbes responsible for turning sweet tea into a probiotic beverage. Essentially, it is a living colony of beneficial organisms that turn sugar into healthful acids and probiotics.

kombucha mother

I know it doesn’t look very appetizing

The fermentation process takes 7-12 days depending on temperature and the strength of the SCOBY. Once fermented, Kombucha becomes slightly effervescent, with a vinegary smell and tart taste

If properly taken care of, a SCOBY can last for many years as it is the parent culture that creates the tea. SCOBYs are often called “Mushrooms” and are the reason Kombucha is sometimes called “Mushroom Tea.”

The benefits:

Kombucha has a high concentration of beneficial enzymes and acids, including  Gluconacetobacter, Lactobacillus, Zygosaccharomyces and Acetobacter that helps fighting against liver diseases:

  • Improve digestion: It can provide relief from problems like IBS, diarrhea, and constipation. Stress, alcohol abuse and antibiotics can contribute of loss of gut bacteria.
  • Boost the immune system: Probiotics can strengthen our natural defenses against harmful microbes and some forms of illnesses.
  • Help with joint pain and arthritis: Kombucha help preserve collagen so it can assist with healing, repairing, and preventing joint damage
  • Help maintain healthy diabetes and cholesterol
  • Increase energy: It contains iron that may increase hemoglobin in the blood, thereby enhancing oxygen flow.
  • Improved mood: Kombucha contains B vitamins (mainty B1, B6, B12) that may help battle depression, stabilize mood, and enhance concentration
  • Weight loss: When consumed before meal, Kombucha increase metabolism like the apple cider vinegar.

To avoid any negative side effects, it’s recommended that you start by drinking very small amounts of kombucha and work your way to larger quantities.

How do you get Kombucha?

Kombucha has gained popularity and is now available in many stores. You can either buy it or start making your own brewage like I do.

If you decide to make it yourself, you can find a SCOBY disk in health food stores or online for relatively inexpensive amounts or get it from someone you know.

Other Flavoring Ideas and Combinations

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 3 Build Relationship

Developing relationships is not just important, it is absolutely mandatory if you want your MLM Network Marketing business to succeed. When you build relationship, you are growing your business. So why you should develop relationship?

1- People do business with people which means that if you not building rapport with your followers, you are not going to attract the right people to your business. When you decide to be part of a MLM or affiliate program, you need to recruit people to join your downline and your network. People need to trust you before they join your company. Don’t forget people join people and not companies. Building relationship is the foundation of MLM network marketing business.

2- Relationships are important to your group’s retention and retention keeps your business stable and ready for more growth. The average retention is 80% so only 2 persons out of 10 are going to stay in your business. You want to keep your downline happy, for that you need duplication. You want to show leadership training them well or pointing them to the right direction. Get to know the people you bring into your home based business. Keep in mind that people are worthy of personal attention and respect. Be of great value to them by sharing your time and knowledge. By helping others your business will flourish.

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”

― Theodore Roosevelt

3- Helping others will benefit you because they will use duplication and grow your network. It is also going to benefit you to grow as a leader, you will gain more confidence, you are going to share your experience, your readings, your failure… All of that will change your mindset and you will be seen as an expert in your field.

So how are you going to keep your team happy?

  • You need a group and try to communicate each day.. watch the video where i give you more details. You can use a Facebook Live with another member sharing experience and so on
  • Send regular broadcast email
  • Send birthday messages
  • Make your members feel special, remember their names and congratulate them even when they have some wins, for example if they do their first Facebook live or if they get their first distributors
  • Always overdeliver, you can send them a free PDF or a free ebook
  • Communicate with your followers and understand their why, their hopes, their dreams and show a genuine interest. Treat them as human being and not just as numbers

In conclusion, don’t think building relationship is a waste of time, it is much cheaper to keep current followers than getting new followers all the time. Don’t forget your downline!

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 2 Get a Daily Routine

When you start your day, you need to take your time in the morning to center yourself and get motivated. What I do is taking 30 min in the morning after i wake up to visualize what I want to achieve, do some meditation and concentrate on my different task I have to do that day. You can then go to the gym, or go for a run and get a good breakfast. You need energy to be able to work and get your concentration all day.

Once you have your morning ritual done, you need to focus on Income Producing Activities. That should be your main focus, which are prospecting, setting appointments, inviting, following up, doing some presentation and closing.

You goal setting + Massive Action = Results

The mistake we all do when we start with a new business, or new product, we want to know everything about it. We want to know the science behind the product, the compensation plan scrutinized, ..

Well what you need is to start making money and not putting too much energy on non productive task.

1-  Host a webinar or do a Facebook Live to bring value to your audience with new content. People want to connect with you, don’t stay behind your computer all day ! You have to remember to give at the start of the video and at the end, your call to action which could be your website with your product or your service, or a link for an ebook, ….

2- Follow up is very important by phone or email or now you can use voice messenger. Nowadays, prospects like to hear your voice and they will feel special.

Little stat: 90% of sales occurred because you followed up with someone.

Listen to the video above to get some examples on how to follow people

3- You can send automated email using aweber if you want like I do, and then from time to time send a broadcast with a new blog or video or something you want to share with your list. Make it as personal as you can.

I would be happy to hear your thoughts , leave me a comment !!

The importance of keeping our body alkaline

Why is it important to have an alkaline body?

Our body is either alkaline or acidic, but we need to be neutral. A PH of 0 is completely acidic and a PH of 14 is completely alkaline. A PH of 7 is neutral and balanced. When your body is unbalanced, you get sick and will experience health problems. An unbalanced body is when your PH starts deviating from 7, a neutral PH will protect your body. The food we eat and stress causes our body to become acidic and when its acidic the blood flow gets badly affected and effects the liver and kidney, which is how we get sick. When its acidic the body cant repair the damaged cells and your body ages faster, causing more wrinkles to appear. You can do a detox to remove all the toxic things from your body.

How to tell if you have an acidic body.

When you get tired during the day and you’re not feeling well, especially after you eat lunch and you feel the drop of energy and you need a boost. Usually its from the food you eat such as; majority carbs, sugar, dairy products or fast foods. They trigger an acidic body and in turn makes you tired.

Dark and green vegetables are some foods that will help alkaline your body.

When we sleep our body turns acidic. When you wake-up the first thing you should do is drink a glass of lukewarm water with either lemon or lime juice to alkalinize your body or you can get a supplement that will alkaline your body, such as our Shield spray.

The benefits of lemon or lime water are:

  • Gives your body clean energy through hydration and oxygenation
  • Stimulates the liver
  • Removes toxins

How to keep your body alkaline:

  • Exercise- it helps reducing stress
  • Limit alcohol
  • Take vitamins
  • Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables

Our spray called ‘shield‘ will help you alkaline your body each morning. You spray it under your tongue which will be absorbed faster going straight into your blood stream.

The benefits of Shield are:

  • Starts your day with an alkalinized body
  • Contains coral calcium which neutralizes your PH
  • Boosts your energy
  • There is a 60 day money back guarantee if you are not pleased with the product.

Lavender, one of the most popular essential oils in the world

The most popular one is Lavandula augustifolia, I was used to have a lot of  plants when I was in France and I still take some from my parents garden, dry the flower, put it in little pouch and then in my wardrobe to have a nice smell.  Lavender is not only a plant with fresh and floral scent but has many benefits for our health and skin care.

Little History :

  • Lavender has been discovered over 2,500 Years ago. The Egyptian used it for mummification and as a perfume
  • The Romans used the lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. It got the name from the roman “lavare” which means laver (in french) or to wash (in english)

Today Lavender has so many virtues and that is why we use it in our skincare. It’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. It is a powerful antioxydant, antimicrobial, antidepressive , has calming effect and sedative.

  • Lavender restores skin complexion and reduce acne
  • Slows aging process with powerful antioxydants
  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces nervousness and emotional stress
  • Helps healing wounds and burns
  • Improves brain function
  • Can help with hair loss by massaging the scalp

I am only in beauty industry and not a doctor so you can check out all the health benefits on the internet however it has been shown that lavender essential oil is a natural antioxydant that will prevent and reverse disease and also helped people maintaining normal and stable mood, helping with memory and improving sleep.

We can use also essential oils in candles which has an aromatherapeutic properties. Aroma candles are made for holistic therapeutic care — for providing well-being to the body, mind, and spirit.

The fragrances of essential oils are emanated in order to stimulate the senses and candles are not just for their pleasant fragrances, but also for their ability to change our mood — to help us feel good.

Reiki

What is reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It’s a simple, safe and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. It’s a form of alternate medication called “energy healing”.

Reiki is made up of 2 Japanese words, Rei- Gods wisdom or the higher power and ki- life force energy, it’s a spiritually guided life force.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating beneficial effects like relaxation, security and wellbeing. The technique to learn reiki is not taught but transferred to the student by the instructor. It is passed during an attunement given by a reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy”.

A little history

Reiki was rediscovered in the mid 1800’s by a Japanese born buddhist monk, Dr Mikao Usui. While teaching in a college Dr Usui was asked “How Jesus facilitated the healing miracles that he performed?”. The question sparked Dr Usui’s interest and set him out on a path for an answer. He was determined to learn the secret miracle healing so he may aid others on his journey which took him too many countries. On his journey a great spiritual energy came down and enlightened Dr Usui, the energy also brought Reiki Ryoho (the ability to heal). To Usui reiki was a spiritual practice, an opportunity for anyone to awaken their true nature. He taught Reiki Ryoho to many people and adjusted his teaching to each person.

Reiki Symbols

Traditionally there are three main symbols in the Usui Reiki healing system. On paper these symbols are flat, two dimensional but they are actually multidimensional. You draw these symbols in the air, with your hand or fingers. It’s up to you, everyone is different. Usui used the symbols as a way of grounding and centering for his students.

  1. The Power Symbol- Cho Ku Rei symbol

Some practitioners like to draw the symbols clockwise, instead of counterclockwise. It is up to you, both are equally valid and powerful. This symbol is very powerful and usually drawn in three strokes. It is for empowering, cleansing and protecting.

  1. The Mental/Emotional (Harmony) Symbol– Sei Hei Ki symbol

This symbol is drawn with 9 strokes and its main purpose is to bring emotional balance, peace and harmony. It helps to balance the left and right brain hemisphere.

  1. The Distant/Connection Symbol– Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol

It is called a Connection symbol because it goes beyond space and time, it connects everything across the universe. It is used for Distant healing, by sending reiki to someone who lives on the other side of the world from you. You can also send reiki to yourself in the future where you know you could use the help, like a surgery. You can also heal past traumas, relationships and emotional/spiritual effects of past events.

4. Reiki Master Symbol– Dai Ko Myo symbol

Also known as “all purpose healing” symbol and “empowerment” symbol. Its intention is enlightenment and also helps heal our karma.. It is the symbol that heals the healers by combining the power of the harmony, power and distance symbols. The symbol is used by reiki masters only when attuning intentions.

Master symbol is not included with the three main symbols in The Usui Reiki healing system but is still used by reiki masters and is still as powerful as the other symbols.

I hope it clarifies what Reiki is and if you want to make an appointment, just reach out to me. The session can last between 60 min to 90 min.

Difference between blog posts, content pillar, and eBook

BLOG VS CONTENT PILLAR VS EBOOK

Blog Posts, Content Pillar and eBooks are 3 ways to put your ideas, your contents on the Internet. But all three have a different structure and purpose.

Blog Post:

It is a place to share your thoughts, your passion, your business. It is your own website where you can express yourself. It is usually a short articles where you can link other blogs. Your audience can leave you some comment and you can interact with them. If you want to make money blogging, it requires a great deal of time, need to be updated regularly if you want it effective at SEO and engaging your readers. Consistency is key when blogging.

Content Pillar:

It is usually used by marketers to drive more traffic on their blogs, to get leads and revenue.  It covers a longer detailed report than the blogs, in-depth articles that solve problem that customers in your niche are having. It is intended to a more educated audience that can tackle more difficult read.

It is an informative piece of content on a specific topic that can be broken in many derivative sections or pieces. You can blog out of the sections or videos to attract your audience in an everyday task. It drives as many as 4 times leads and 3 times closes deals as compared to other marketing campaigns. Before you start doing a content pillar, you need to get a strategy and think well of your content. It needs to have interviews, survey, statistics,… You need to do some research if you really want to reach your audience and give the right value. You can share links from your blogs or even from e-books.

EBook:

This can be a free giveaway for lead capture systems on your website. You can put many ideas in an eBook vs Content Pillar. It is more casual and has a more engaging tone. It is intended for a broader audience that has time to consume longer-form content. An eBook has the potential to reach a huge amount of customers in your niche through google search, reviews, and feedback.

For all three you can do a funnel when you do your promotion and build your list.

  • 35% of businesses have a documented content strategy
  • 42% of businesses will publish new content at least weekly
