The Economy of the Future

playfulness

I have way more fun as an entrepreneur than I ever had working for someone else. Not only that but my time is mine and I decide how I am going to use it.  There is a lot of playfulness in having time freedom!

There is a time in the very near future when there will be more entrepreneurs and we will be buying from and supporting each other rather than big box stores.  I think everyone of us is an entrepreneur but that was socialized out of us in school.  We weren’t taught to think like entrepreneurs we were taught to think like employees.  We were taught to “go to school, and get a good job”.   Jobs are not what they use to be!  We are either a slave to someone else’s vision or we are creating our own.

How often does your boss encourage you to play and have fun at work?

I have never had a boss encourage fun at work!  It was serious business and we couldn’t “fool around” on their time.  Some people are lucky to get a lunch break at work.  You have to feel like working 8 hours a day 5 days a week and if you don’t you cant’ call in and say you are staying home.

I can’t wait for the days when I am buying from my family, friends and neighbors and supporting them to be successful!  If you don’t have a residual income business I encourage you to find one.

Rewrite Your Story

 

rewrite-your-own-story

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like this image because it reminds me that not only can I rewrite my story but I can also put it in a metaphoric bottle and send it off to the Universe to make it happen.  I can let go and let God.

On January 1st I wrote a blog called “One Magic Word” where I talked about creating a List of Accomplishments, as if those things had already occurred.  My list was lofty and I was dreaming big!  It is a powerful exercise I encourage you to do.  Little did I know that it would cause such a stir in me!

I have spent the six months since I wrote them unraveling old beliefs and reprogramming my mind so that I could align with those lofty goals.  Does the fact that I have yet to accomplish them mean it was a failure, or that I am a failure?  NO WAY!  I still have 6 months to accomplish them and the six months I have spent rewriting my story, will make it possible to do so.

We can not line up with our desires if we have a contrary story running in the background.  It is impossible!  Our words are powerful and the words running unconsciously in our head are just as powerful.  Thoughts become thing, that is the guarantee and we don’t want negative, unconscious thoughts that are contrary to what we want to create be the ones that become the things!!

Until we learn that we can rewrite our story, most of us are running the program we learned as children.  This could be a good story but I bet for most people it is filled with contradictions and beliefs that are not getting us where we want to go. It isn’t anyone’s fault it is just the way our society works.

I like to use myself to illustrate a point because it makes it more real.  Here is an example of one of the accomplishments on my list:  “I shall achieve the rank of Ambassador Diamond”  which is the 2nd highest rank in our company.  That is a lofty goal and if I am out of alignment, it will be impossible to achieve, even though I wrote it as though it has already happened.  If I am in alignment, it can happen easily and quickly!

I can never achieve Ambassador Diamond, no matter how many affirmations I am say, if the real story in my head goes something like this “How am I ever going to get there, no one on my team is working,”, “look how easy it is for Suzy to get to Ambassador Diamond, why is it so hard for me?”, “I would have to work my butt off to make that happen”, “It is just too hard!” “I was stupid to think something like that could happen to me!” “No one wants to join my team”, “I never meet anyone who is interested in my product or business”.  You get the point.  Not a good story, right?  But guess what those things are manifesting because that is what you are thinking.  The thoughts get affirmed and you are in a vicious cycle of self defeat.

You CAN always rewrite your story.  Decide what it is you want to accomplish in your business, get into a positive frame of mind and start writing.  The more detail the better.  Make a commitment to accomplishing what you wrote and take these four important steps:

1-Put your story where you can see it every day.

2-Read it out loud once a day, even a few times a week can be powerful, especially in the morning to set your day up.

3-Don’t concern yourself with how, when, why, put that story in the bottle and trust that the loving creator will make it happen.

4-When you catch yourself running the old story in your mind or in your behavior say “That is not my story!”

You will probably be doing step four often if not all the time in the beginning.  As you run your new story and stop the old one you will find that you say it less and less and that you are believing your new story more and more.

Today is the perfect day to rewrite your story. Give it a try.

The Back Door

the back door 2 copy

Backdooring has given Network Marketing a bad name!

Have you ever been backdoored? It goes something like this “Hi Katelyn, I have an awesome networking event that it think you would love and I want you to be my guest.” I accept the invitation and when I get there I discover it is not a networking group at all but a business opportunity meeting.  Here is another example: ” Hi Katelyn, lets get together for coffee and connect, it has been a long time!”  When I get to the coffee shop there is my friend with her sponsor, ready to throw up on me about the new business venture she found.  I hate when people do that!

If you are one of those people using this method or belong to a company that teaches it, STOP!

Why would someone want to join your business when you started the relationship with a lie.  Yes it is a lie to leave out the information and spring it on your friend or potential when they get there.

I believe in the Law of Attraction, in honesty and building relationships.  This is the only way to build a successful business.  If you have a business opportunity that you are so excited about why be embarrassed to say up front that you want to share it?  Are you afraid the person will say no if you tell them why you want to meet?  They might!

Yet if you use the backdoor method, they will for sure say “NO!” and you will have wasted your time and theirs.

I like to make informed decisions, not have someone trick me into meeting with them and expecting that I will jump right into their business opportunity.

If you want to build a successful business, tell people what you are doing, be excited about it and straight forward.  If they say no, they weren’t intended to be in your business.   Tell people what you have, rule out the no’s and go for YES!

PS if you try to backdoor me I will show you the front door!

Why is Network Marketing the best Opportunity for Women?

903860_542918392449939_1826745913_o

24-Women are all about relationships, so is Network Marketing!

Want to know more? What woman wouldn’t!

Sure, I make a great living, but the income happens because I’m in a business that enables me to do what I love to do every day, help people improve their health and wealth.

But it wasn’t always this way. Far from it.

I went to college and got a BFA and a Masters degree (big expense there) and worked as a psychologist for 26 years.  I was a single mom and when my kids were young I had to work three jobs to make ends meet.  When I worked only two jobs there was never enough money to stretch to the end of the month.  I racked up a lot of credit card debt, close to $30,000 because of that.  Even when I was getting paid at the top of my pay scale I couldn’t make a dent in that debt.

When I first heard about Network Marketing I was skeptical.  I wasn’t sure if it was some pyramid scheme or not, but the earning potential and time freedom sure were enticing!  I found out later that pyramid schemes are illegal and that Network Marketing is a legitimate business model just like Corporate Jobs are.  A secret Corporate America doesn’t want you to know!

Network Marketing favors the individual and opens the door to unlimited earning potential.  I make so much more money than I did as a psychologist it is unbelievable!  It leaves me wondering why I paid all of that money to “Get a Good Job”.   I have been able to pay all that debt off buy a brand new car and take several dream trips that I didn’t think I would ever take, in the last couple of years.

Read this before you choose a Home Based Business!!

momentum

“Home-based businesses are one of the fastest-growing segments in our economy, and that trend will only continue, as the age of the corporation, which began barely a century ago, now gives way to the age of the entrepreneur.” – Paul Zane Pilzer, Author and Nobel Prize Winning Economist

There are a lot of things to consider when you are looking for an MLM/Home Based Business to get involved in. Your SUCCESS depends on your choice and your action!  Learning about a company is called doing your due diligence, which a lot of people fail to do, getting caught up in the hype of someone else.  Due diligence will help you make an informed decision beyond any hype you might be hearing.

Here are some things to consider that are key to your success:

1- You want to find a company that is at least 18 months old though 5 years is even better.  A high percentage of home based business opportunities fail in the first 2 years so stability and longevity are very important.  You don’t want to put your valuable time and energy into building a business only to have it taken away because the company failed.

2-You also will have a stronger chance of success if the company is debt free.  The reason for this is two fold.  First a company that is debt free is going to stick around and not fail because they have too much debt.  Secondly, this means that more money can go into the field for the distributors.  Debt free is the new sexy!

3-Look for a product that is both consumable and first-to-market.  Is this a product that people will want to have.  Is the demand high?  A product that is first-to-market is one that has no competition.  If you choose a product that like other products you spend most of your time defending your product against similar ones.  You also want to look for a company that has more than one product.

4-Look for an opportunity that is ground level.  This doesn’t necessarily mean it is a new company.  For a company to qualify for ground level it must have less than 500,000 distributors.  If a company has less than 100,000 distributors it is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY.

It-Works-Growth-Chart

5-You want to get in at the right time. There are a lot of great companies out there, with great products, but once they go through the momentum phase the potential for making fabulous money diminishes.  The perfect time is before the company hits momentum or at the beginning of momentum.  Once in momentum the energy is building for that company to become a household word and the retail members and distributors are exploding.   During early momentum a company will reach critical mass where the annual sales are $50 million dollars.  You want to get in  at the ground floor early in momentum so that you can benefit from the explosive growth.  All those people who are joining have to be under someone, wouldn’t it be great if it was you!
