MLM Help – The Right Person for the Right Problem

I was thinking of MLM help, the right person for the right problem, this morning when an incident occurred at my daughter’s house.

Leila happens to have a developmental disability and lives with 2 other young ladies in a rental house with staff assisting.

This morning one of the staff called me (as one of the guardians this is my month for being “on call”) to tell me that the garage door wouldn’t open.  When I asked if they tried it the manual way she said yes, but it would only go up half way.  Well, that wouldn’t work to get the car out and Leila to her special Chanukah party later and also the other girls to their programs tomorrow (Monday).

Well, I called my boyfriend to ask if he knew anything about garage doors.  He informed me with a chuckle that he’s never had a garage and has never had trouble with a car port.

I then called a business partner of mine who does lots of repair work.  He said there was some sort of jam and since it’s a rental to call the landlord immediately.

Since I’m not the guardian that has the relationship with the landlord’s management company, I called the guardian who is.  She has much more mechanical, technical, and fix-it knowledge than I and called the house and talked staff through opening the door manually.  She will also notify the management company to have the electrical door-opener looked at.

I wasn’t the right person to go to for this house problem except that I knew who to contact to get the help.  I knew that it was beyond my expertise (but I’ll find out how it works!).

Who do you go to for help for your business?  It needs to be someone or some group that actually knows what they’re doing.  Mentoring for Free can be that group.  If I can’t help you, I know who can.

Wishing you mlm help, the right person for the right problem,

How to Get the Skills for Network Marketing Success

I struggled for years with a great mlm company but didn’t know how to get the skills for network marketing success.

The  information, even their “university” didn’t help.  I bought every CD, every book, supported every speaker at the meetings and conventions by buying their knowledge and personal growth products.  A compulsive note-taker, I have notebooks of notes.  None of this helped me.  I even took a class at an online, on-phone “unversity”.  The same non-working (for me and many others) skills were taught.  I spent thousands of dollars.

Can you relate?

A lot of this information taught manipulative closing techniques, “counter objection” statements, oh, and I might want to pseudo build a relationship, too.  Of course, there’s the classic “take away” method based on fear of loss.  That one can be very effective, but people feel badly about that later and tend to avoid you like the plague.

And because I was unsuccessful, I thought there was something wrong with me.

When I learned these things I had an “uh-oh” feeling – I have since learned to listen to and trust that feeling.  It’s never wrong.  But I was brainwashed and thought that was the only way to go.  After all, the great leaders in the company taught those techniques.

I didn’t know then that this was an archaic and, for most of the population, an ineffective, not to mention, an uncomfortable way to go.  It is not destined to build large organizations with little turnover.  Most people can’t duplicate it.

And what is network marketing at it’s best, if not only real long term success?  Duplication.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to work forever, as people have to do with most companies.  I want to build it to work without me and retire to do other projects and spend time with my grandchildren, assuming I ever have any.

When I found out my lack of success was not my fault at first I was angry because I had put so much time, effort, and money learning those non-workable pseudo skills.  And then I was relieved.  I’m a college graduate, knew how to learn, why wouldn’t it work?  It was the wrong stuff!

So do you want to know how to get the skills for network marketing success that really work?  Maybe where to get them would be more to the point.

I can teach a number of the skills, but the best place is Mentoring for Free.  It really is free and the mentors teaching these skills are building their businesses using them.  There are 10 free, live skills calls every week, most interactive, so you can ask questions.  Thursday at 3:00 pm Eastern is a call teaching how to get leads for free or low cost.  Wednesdays you’ll find the Mental Cleanse call – a mastermind that helps so many people heal themselves and achieve successful personal growth.  Tuesday there is another marketing skills call. Saturday nights there is a skills call that is not interactive but very valuable, and later Saturday night is another personal growth call, the Coaches Corner Mastermind.

I’ve learned the right skills and still get mentored myself – for free.  I’ve learned to trust myself again, to be grateful for everything I have, and to belive, actually, know that I have been failing forward and am where I need to be right now.

Contact me if you’re interested in helping yourself and learning these skills crucial to your success.

We are introduced to the dream of time freedom, money freedom. We learn to visualize. But what if we’re still held back? What if the dream isn’t enough?

I wrote a song about what freedom means to you and to me and did a video on that and where to get free help that works for most people who put in the effort.

Enjoy.

MLM Success Means Freedom

How do most of us average people achieve freedom? Death is one way, winning the lottery, inheriting a lot of money – well, except for death, most of us will not be the recipients of the other two. But MLM Success means Freedom.

Today at my job the event I talk about as a downside to my job occurred. It was open enrollment, so to speak, for our vacation days. Well, I need 6 weekdays in a row in January and 6 more in February. The way it’s set up, with our new system and with competition with fellow employees in my department, I have 3 days approved in each time period and the rest are wait-listed.

This is the opposite of freedom.

Is my dream strong enough to work my network marketing, my mlm business so that I can have the freedom to do what I want, when I want, and with whom I want? It gets stronger every day. How about you?

Don’t get me wrong, with so many people out of work these days, I am grateful to have my job. However, I consider that temporary for as long as I need to. My real job is getting me closer to freedom every day.

Wishing that for you mlm success means freedom,

I was listening to the radio today and heard a story that made me wonder if you are asking the right questions for network marketing success.

Okay, I know, I shouldn’t listen to all the negative stuff spewed from the media, but it actually spilled over from the traffic and weather that I tune in for. Good thing they’re at the same times.

Anyway, the story was about a hospital here in the Phoenix area that has amenities for people staying there, such as flatscreen tv, laptop computers, in-room refrigerators, massages for a small fee and also pedicures, etc. They interviewed a yound woman who had just had a baby and really liked the homey feel, especially being able to send out baby pictures by email right away.

Okay, that’s great. But did she ask the other questions – the ones that matter? Do the doctors and nurses wash their hands and disinfect between patients? There are stories of professionals who don’t even though they know better. What is the staff infection rate of patients in the facility? What is the illness and death rate from hospital mistakes? What safeguards do they have to avoid mistakes? What is the turn-around time to get help when you call for someone? Is the food nutritious and not full of bad, health depleting ingredients so that you can actually recover?

I’d want to know these things. Hospitals can save lives but are also very dangerous places. What is being done to minimize the danger? I’m going to challenge the meds being given me. Of course, I do everything I can to stay out of the hospital in the first place.

At any rate, it got me to thinking. People are afraid to ask doctors, nurses, and administrators these questions. Network marketers – new or experienced – may be reluctant to challenge an upline or corporate office about the pay plan, breakage in the plan, exactly what’s in the products, what is the experience and integrity of the management, etc. How do you find this out?

At Mentoring for Free we teach people to ask the right questions – for any company. We teach you how to find out the answers. We do this generically – we’re not trashing any company or any product and we’re not selling anything. Just the straight scoop. And just like in the hospital, it’s your money, your time, and your life, maybe the lives and future of your friends and loved ones. Would you gamble on that without asking questions, the right questions?

I hope not.

Questions? Feel free to contact me anytime. Oh, all the training is free.

Wishing you are asking the right questions for network marketing success,

Giving a Little Extra for MLM Success

I’ve long understood that giving a little extra for mlm success eventually pays off. Actually, this works for life in general and it comes back to you when least expected.

Yesterday my daughter Leila visited our podiatrist. Since Leila doesn’t live with me, one of her staff took her to be fitted for new orthotics for her dress shoes. Leila happens to have Down syndrome, which is a genetic issue and doesn’t in any way define who she is.

Anyway, Leila’s toenails are thick and difficult to cut. The other podiatrist she saw would not cut them because insurance wouldn’t cover the procedure for her. But Dr. Accomando didn’t think twice about it and not only cut them but ground them down to a nice shape.

This may be a little thing to him, but is an issue to those of us who have the care of our loved ones with special needs and have difficulty with this task.

Do you think I’ll remember what he did and tell everyone what a great job he did? You bet.

Going the extra mile in any business gets noticed. If not right away, it eventually comes back to the person in the form of wonderful things. We may not even recognize it.

It’s no accident that our motto at Mentoring for Free is “Be a Mentor with a Servant’s Heart”. Dr. Accomando fits that profile. Do you?

Wishing you success through giving a little extra for mlm success,

Since I’m the Singing Network Marketer, I hear music all the time; the phrase “you’ve got to have a dream” for network marketing success reminds me of a song from the great Rogers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific.

The song is “Happy Talk”, which, to which at the age of six I did a dance in a recital with a Park District program. I was in the only tutu that curved downward because my mother did not know how to put it together. I felt embarrassed because I was different. On the other hand, I felt superior because I did the steps right and many of the other girls did not. Of course, we were only six, but I took doing it right very seriously.

So, the part of the song that really resonates with me is: You’ve got to have a dream, if your don’t have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?”. This was sung by the character Bloody Mary to her daughter Liat and Lt. Joe Cable, a very romantic couple!

But I was thinking how true that is. As a professional network marketer always keeping open for new partners, I’m wasting my time with people who don’t have a dream. Of course, they may not have a dream now. Or they may have forgotten how or even suppressed dreaming because of outside influences, being beaten down, ridiculed for dreaming, and other negative influences.

I ran across a young lady working at Target who just settled for a part time job and that was all she was doing and didn’t need anything else. It was enough to pay her bills and that was all she was looking for. Certainly, right now would not be a good time to try to work with her. She didn’t raise her hand to be a volunteer.

Maybe some day she’ll start dreaming again and then be a prospect for me or someone else who can help her go for her dream.

As we know, it takes a powerful dream to keep us going as network marketers during the difficult times. And we leaders have to help people discover or rediscover their dreams. So many of us struggle with believing that we deserve our dreams and that they can be possible.

I sometimes do, too, which is why I continue on the Wednesday Mental Cleanse calls with Mentoring for Free. I often need the moral support of other like-minded people. Another call I tune in on is the Coaches Corner Mastermind call on Saturday nights. They help me believe my dreams are possible.

Let me know if you would like information on either of these free weekly calls.

Wishing “you’ve got a dream for network marketing success,
