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!

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 5 Being Organized and Prepared

If you ever find that you feel stuck, overwhelmed or you don’t want to do it anymore, the cause is normally that you are not organized and you don’t know what to do with all the informations your company or service sent you.

You want to get organized in your mind first. That is why it is very important to plan your week and have a DMO (Daily Method of Operation). Being organized with your Multilevel Marketing opportunity will allow you to achieve in a few hours what someone achieves in a whole day’s work with overtime! This is why it is said that some people live three life times in one life.

1-  Follow the 80/20 rule

The 80/20 rule is a important factor in all organization and success. What this rule states is that 20% of your work produces 80% of your results, and vice versa 80% of your work produces 20% of your results. Engage with people daily!

2- Brochure and Business Card

When you are out always keep your card or brochure with you, in your car. You don’t know who you might meet. And with the digital world, more and more companies have an app with all the resources that you can send easily to people you meet. Don’t be shy!!

3- Measure your time

By measuring your time in 30 minute intervals, you will find out what you have been doing during that time. This is a great way to keep on track as sometimes we might become distracted and without measuring we would think that we have been productive. Start your day with the task you don’t like doing and is important for your business.

4- Prepare everything on File

When you are promoting your business to your cold market, be ready to answer the questions, and have your link in a folder easy to find, or use your app (easier to follow up).  You can write a short description with your own words about your opportunity, your product or service. Don’t use a script from the company. You can either use a spreadsheet or use a notebook

5- Use your time wisely with email 

Creating rules for messages helps keep our attention where it needs to be focused. If we get emails from the same source and we want to keep this correspondence we create a folder, move the emails to that folder. You can create also an email for each of your business.

6- Work Smart

During day time, use it to call your prospects and respond to emails in the evening or early morning. When people put their names on a funnel and stated a time and day to call them, have a calendar and write it down, it looks very professional and personal to call your followers at the right day and right time.

7- Use App or software

To do my pictures, I have “Word Swag” on my phone and “Canva Pro” on the computer (highly recommended and not expensive). To get free copyright pictures, you can use Pixabay/freeimages. Whatever App or software you decide to use,  just stick with it, practice and you’ll do your pics in no time.

8- Schedule and automate

You can schedule your post on Facebook for free, or you can use some social media management platform like Buffer to schedule your post on different social media. If you have an app from your business like I have, it is a great tool to remind you the follow-ups. You can also reuse some of your posts to gain time.

Lack of organization can slow you down and make you procrastinate more. You need action steps and accountability. Get rid of the clutter, get the tools you need, and get your mindset in place. With these few components, there is no stopping you! Just do it and make it happen!

Hope you got value, and I would love to hear from you.

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 4 Daily Positive Habits

To develop a recruiting mindset, you need to have daily positive habits that will make an immediate difference in your lifestyle and help you reach your goals. They add a sense of reliability to your day so no matter how many risks you take, your habits will always be there to depend on. You want to work with focus and balance and stay away from stress, fear and worry.

1- Remove yourself from gossip and negativity.

Seek relationship with like-minded people and positive, smart people. If a other person insists on involving you in the gossip, make it clear that you don’t feel comfortable with this situation. It’s up to you to draw the line and explain to the other person that you don’t like gossiping or basing your work relationships on rumors. Get your facts straight and if you need to avoid some people to evolve in your life and reach your goals, don’t hesitate because at the end of the day you are the master of your life, and you are the one paying your bills. Offer to resolve the problem!

2- Consciously choose to replace your negative emotions to positive thoughts.

Switch the “I can’t”  to   “I can”  and “I won’t”  to  “I will”. When you start having negative emotions, stop yourself straight away, choose to live in a state of mindfulness. Do some meditations, write a personal journal where you can write your intentions, your affirmations, your gratitude. Don’t play the victim, you create your life so take your responsibility. Creativity can feel like a release.  When you put your emotions through an art form, you get them out of your system and clear them out. Don’t take anything for granted anymore.  Sometimes the good things in our lives are right in front of our faces and we still fail to see them.

3- Do some form of exercise.

15 mins of exercise is enough to release the endorphins, serotonin and other happy chemicals in your brain. It trains the brain to believe that your “behavior matters” which then carries positivity in all your activities during the day. Take a walk alone away from your usual atmosphere.  Head somewhere uplifting like a park or museum. The time spent distancing yourself from those negative influences can bring you great peace of mind. You can also do some gardening, it is very relaxing and you’ll enjoy the things you are creating.

Life is a marathon, not a sprint.

4- Focus on what matters the most

Sometimes in the daily grind, we lose focus on all the ways things that are going right in our lives. We have to learn to say NO sometimes and also take time to meditate, read, sleep. Simply say so — you can compliment the idea, the project, the person, the organization … but say that it’s not the right fit, or it’s not what you’re looking for at this time. If you are constantly stressed and overwhelmed, you need to stop pushing yourself or you’ll crash and burn out. Once you know exactly the new skills you want to learn, practice a lot because you’ll get more confident and you will thrive to your path to greatness.

5- Find a mentor or a coach that will teach you and guide you

They went through all these feelings and they will help you to overcome fear and stress. Having someone who practically guides you and shares your worries with you — often placating your fears with their years of experience — keeps you reassured that you’ll be successful. The valuable connections, timely advice, occasional checks — together with the spiritual and moral guidance you will gain from having a mentor — will literarily leapfrog you to success. Mentorship is one guaranteed way to gain experience from others

Elimination of negative thoughts and becoming positive takes time so be patient and practice, practice. Don’t forget you are the sum of the five people with whom you spend the most time. Look around and choose wisely your surroundings. Your business and your success will depend on the people you have around you. Plan the day before so you know your tasks and you are not stressed out.

Hope you got value, and I would love to hear from you.

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 !!

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Step 1 Make a decision

Making the right decision is not as easy as we think.

Depending the decision you are making, you can become happy, wealthy, healthy or your world can turn upside down. You need to trust the process because fear, hesitation, doubt, anxiety and uncertainty will only leave you with regrets. Dig deep in yourself to see what works and find the answers within.

Desire is the fire, and your dreams must be bigger than fear. Clear your mind so you can take that inspiration and turn it into steps to meet your goal. Find new surroundings, find the leader you admire and do the same but with your own personality and authenticity. Clear away the distractions and focus on yourself. Ask around, talk to your friends and family about your project, sometimes it just takes a different perspective. Say it aloud to the Universe or Pray. Whatever is your belief, say it clear enough so you are heard!

  • Accept your contradictions and challenges

Each time you have a conflict within yourself, write down the Pros and the Cons. Don’t wait that everything is perfect, otherwise it will never be the right time.

Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Take the moment and make it perfect.

You have to accept that you can be happy from outside but lost from inside; you can feel content but restless at the same time. Recognize that your thoughts represent just one possible way to perceive your circumstances. Write down all the great things in your life and decide to throw away any negative, self-limiting thoughts. It’s your choice how you see your life, so see it as a beautiful gift and take on each day with love in your heart and a smile on your face.

  •  Go one step at a time

Like a child when he learns how to walk or to ride a bicycle, he might fall several times but not walking or not riding is an option! Keep that in mind when you want to give up on your dream. This is where your “Why” is important. Having a routine, a weekly activity goal is a must if you want to build a profitable business. You need to be consistent and patient. I like to take 2 hours on Sunday to write my activity goals and plan my week.

  • Take some break

Your brain needs fuel, and rest is part of this fuel. You cannot work 24/7. Spend time with your family and friends at least 1 day a week. I like to do it on Saturday afternoon and Sunday Morning. You would be surprised to see that a weekend well spend will give you great content and creativity the week after

We all want to feel moved, and then to use that to create love, joy, passion, and purpose. and i hope these 4 points will help you dig deep in your unconscious while conserving clear thoughts to achieve your goals.

I hope you got some value, leave me a comment, like and share and of course reach out to me if you want to connect.

8 Simple Steps To Improve Your Time Management

Are you someone who can’t seem to manage your time? If you are having problems with time at home or at work, there is a good chance that your problems may be caused by your inability to manage it.

Most people feel overwhelmed with responsibilities and activities, and they find it hard to control what they really want to do so they go with the flow and keep out of control!

Time is the most valuable resource in the universe, it is precious and irreplaceable.

See below 8 simple steps that will help you improve your time management:

  1. Know That You Have a Problem

Knowing that you have a time management problem is the first step in changing your behavior. If you are always late for work or when attending a social event, it is something that should not be happening on a daily or weekly basis. If this is the case, then it is time for you to realize that you may have a problem.

  1. Decide To Change

Knowing that you have a time management problem is important, but wanting to change is even more important. In order to change you need to set goals for yourself, as these goals can help to provide you with a source of motivation and accomplishment if completed. Simple goals include showing up to work on time for a whole month, being on time for all dinner dates, and so forth. Ensure that the goals are not too hard that you end up not meeting your goals, get frustrated and give up.

  1. Stick To Your Goals

Creating a number of time management goals for you to meet is advised, but it is important that you stick with them when you are faced with complications.

“He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life. But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.” -Victor Hugo

  1. Create Daily/Weekly Task Lists

Creating a to do list is an easy way to properly manage your time. You can write down your weekly activity goals, and also write down the day before what you need to do throughout the next day. Be sure to list your tasks in order of importance, and be sure not to put too much tasks or you’ll get overwhelmed.

  1. Rely On Time Management Tools

Properly managing your time is important, but it can be hard for many individuals to get used to. I am still old school and love writing down everything, some people prefer using their computer. Choose the one that suits you the best. Also, did you know that many cell phones and computers come with alarm clocks, alerts, and so much more? Use them to break down your tasks and you’ll see how easy it gets.

  1. Learn How To Say No

The ability to say no is closely linked to self-confidence. Don’t wait until your energy runs out before you take a much needed step back to assess the situation. Be clear and honest with yourself about what you truly want.

  1. Get Organized

Organization is key to being able to properly manage your time. If you are unorganized, you are likely to waste a large amount of time. For example, in the workplace you can waste time by searching for lost or misplaced documents. Organize your desk and put the important task to do in a place where you can see it. The same can be said for the home; if you are unorganized, you can spend hours searching for your glasses or car keys.

  1. Consider Hiring Professional Help

There will be times where you may not be able to refuse a project at work or a task at home, but try to not take on more than you can manage. Look into using outside help if you can. In the home, this outside help can come from a housecleaner. At the workplace, this outside help can come from a Coworker or a Virtual Assistant.

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.

search-rankings-by-content-length-image-8

  • 35% of businesses have a documented content strategy
  • 42% of businesses will publish new content at least weekly
  • 55% of businesses will increase their content marketing spend in the next year

If you find the right niche and write the right content, you can transform your business and turn your website into a traffic and lead generation machine.

The 4 Network Marketing Myths

You see a lot of misconception around Network Marketing and misleading information. So what is the truth? Is it for you?

Myth 1.  I am too old to start in Network Marketing

You are never too old to start ANYTHING NEW. Very often we hear people say they feel “it’s too little, too late”. In other words they feel like they have lost too much time, and now they can’t have the impact they want on their financial freedom, or they see new technology as very confusing.

If you have a good coach, trainer that show you step by step how it is done, you will have no problem to build a great business. Of course it might take you more time at the start but then when you’ll start making money you will be able to outsource the tasks you don’t want to do.

Don’t find this excuse to stop you. You can do it. Have faith in you!

There are two kinds of people in this world. Ones that go out ~ The go-getter~  and try to build a better life for themselves and their families, and the ones that sit there, poke faults and tell you all the reasons it can’t be done, without even actually doing it themselves.

Myth 2. Need to be successful before you brand yourself

Question we all ask ourselves when we start Network Marketing or going into Social Media, is           “Who is going to listen to us?”

You would be very surprised how many people follow you. You have an audience that just started and know very little about network marketing. Share your story, be vulnerable. You did follow some training to be where you are; if you are ready to do a video, a blog, you know your content. You are an expert in their eyes; so don’t put yourself down and keep going!

Myth 3. Is the market saturated?

Another concern that people have is that there is a lot of companies out there and unfortunately there is a lot of “crap”. Don’t follow the last shiny object otherwise you won’t be able to build a proper business. Do your homework before joining, check the company, how long they are doing it… You hear that all the time, be the first person to sign up! Timing is important! Well if you join a business that just started guess what? It might just close a few months after and you lose your money. So join a business wisely and do your due diligence. Also another point that we are asked a lot :

Only the persons at the top make money?                  WRONG !!

You are rewarded for your efforts – if you work harder than the people above you, you’ll make more than them. It doesn’t matter when you join; if you take massive action and you stay consistent then you will get successful results!

Myth 4. Network Marketing is a pyramid scheme:

Pyramid schemes are money games, with no exchange of product or service.

Network Marketing is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated for the sales of products or services they generate, and for the sales of products or services of other salespeople that they recruit.

The big difference is whether a product or service is being sold or not. An illegal pyramid scheme provides no products or services and pays according to how many people you recruit and/or the money they are putting into the system.

Legal network marketing programs offer quality products and services that are sold to consumers. Enrolling new members allows to get an increased income based on the volume of sales in the entire team.

So are you ready to join a Network Marketing Company?

It is not a scheme of getting rich quick!! It all depends on your daily activities; how long you spend each day and what is your goal… If you are consistent and patient, you will achieve a lot more than if you do it as a hobby. Most of top earner built six figure income within two to five years of joining their company. But they usually stick with only ONE company. This is important that you don’t switch every six months if you want to build a successful business. You have a lot of tools in place that can help you, you can outsource a lot of task and use duplication also.
