Business Tip – Share in Others Success

I love being on Facebook and seeing all my networking friends having great success. I comment and say congrats to their team and their business. I am not negative or make excuses on why they did something well and I did not.

I was speaking with a networking friend of mine and we were talking about her success and the success of some of the people in her business. It was great to see other companies in our industry of Direct Sales/Networking Marketing doing so well. We need to celebrate with others on their success.

Watch the video to hear my views on why this is important.

To Your Success,

Business Tip #3 – The Flinch

“It’s all about decisions and how to know when you’re making the right ones. It’s about you: the current, present you; the potential, future you; and the one, single difference between them” The Flinch by Julien Smith

This book is amazing so far and I highly recommended it to anyone looking to overcome fear.

“The flinch is the moment when every doubt you’ve every had comes back and hits you, hard. It’s when your whole body feels tense. It’s an instinct that tells you to run. It’s a moment of tension that append in the body and the brain, and it stops everything cold.”

I downloaded this book for FREE from Kindle. It is an easy read and highly recommend it.

What is your Biggest Fear?

If you watched even a small portion of that video you would see one of my biggest fears. I hate the ocean and am so afraid of waves. I had an “incident” in California when I was 14 years old that almost ended it all. I got smashed by a wave while boggy boarding and could not get back up to the surface. I remember thinking that I was too young to die. It was pretty scary.

I managed to get up finally but only for a quick breathe before the next wave came crashing down. I have a hard time not seeing and feeling that every time I step into the ocean.

We have a 3 and 5 year old girls who LOVE the ocean and I am trying not to pass the fear onto them but it is hard. When we moved to Australia in 2011 I almost had a heart attack each time we were at the beach. In early 2012 I decided I needed to go after my fear. Without thinking about it (I would have chickened out) I registered for a surf course on the Gold Coast. I figured if I understood the currents and how the water moved, I might not be as scared.

That day was filled with fear, unknown, happiness and pride. I had not only went after my fear head on (and I mean literally, we had to paddle out OVER the waves I feared so much) but even stood on the surf board and turned a few times. It was exhilarating.

I will not lie – there are still days when I find that fear creep back into my mind. When we were in Cuba the last day the wind had picked up and the white caps on the waves made my tummy do flip flops but every time I go back to the moment of facing that fear and smile knowing I did it. And had fun too!

This story can help you with whatever you might fear. It is important to address it first. Then figure out “why” you have the fear and then hit the fear head on. MOST of the time the fear of that fear is WAY worse then you thought. I know it was for me.

So whether it is fear with your business (fear of failure, fear of what people may think, fear of rejection) or fear in your personal life (fear of regret, fear of loss, fear of loneliness), attack it head on and see what happens. I am sure it won’t be a bad as you made it out to be.

Have a fantastic day.

A Mental Health Break

A Mental Health Break

One of the most important aspects of any home business and/or internet business is consistency. Blog everyday, video blog everyday, Facebook everyday or whatever social media you use everyday. But what happens when you need a break? What happens when you need a mental health break?

Well the good news is you take one! You know the people who read, watch and listen to your information will understand.

I took a mental health break from the internet and my internet business for the last few days.
I had to – it was not an option. My brain, my family and my mind needed it.

It was amazing to just relax and enjoy the kids, my husband and watch a few movies.

I am sure you understand and have probably wondered many times if you could take some time for yourself.

I say “do it” and enjoy the mental break.

I don’t recommend it for a long period of time or your business will die but it may really help you become a better business owner, a better spouse, parent and person.

Enjoy the time, turn off and refresh. Once you come back, you will be able to enjoy the excitement and the passion again.

I am excited to be back and thankful for those who understand it was needed.

Time to take control!!

Time to take control!!

This is an opportunity to join the few who were brave enough to try and strong enough to go against the grain.

 

I want more! I want to live life to its fullest. I do not want to think that the ordinary is ordinary. I am not mundane – I want and expect more! 

I am a dreamer but that is a good thing. I teach my children to dream big as well. We do not need to give up our dreams. “That’s life” is a cop out. You have a choice. Everyone has a choice. The only thing left to ask is will you take a chance. 

Darren Hardy – 21st Century Leadership

In the 21st Century many things have changed in our world.

Graduates are coming out of school without a job. 17,000,000 jobs in the work place don’t even require a college degree. And the worst part is that these Jobs aren’t coming back – Companies have found out how to do more with less (over seas or contract workers)
The industrial age has died. An economic shift in human history – redistribution is happening.

Millionaires world wide have changed.
In 1900 there were 5,000 millionaires
In 2000 there were 7,000,000 millionaires
In 2010 there were 10,000,000 millionaires.

Are you going to a part of this number for 2013/14?

The key skills to capitalize are needed and LEADERSHIP is the KEY.

The speed of change is accelerating – technology, knowledge, globalization, demographics (millennial generation 1980s – 1990s – 5 generations in the work place, more women working). Once we truly understand these stats and these changes, our leadership needs to accommodate these changes.

Key Traits of 21st Century Leadership are:
** Character
** Skills
** Vision

Lets break these down:

1. Character
“Not your daddy’s leadership” – We did not witness what our parents did. The Military model is dead.
Oraganizations have changed from economic entity to Emotional Intelligence (relate and connect). It used to be financial capital – it is now human capital. Use to be control not its collaborations.

Lead by example – most basic principle yet most violated.

“I no longer listen to what people say, I just watch what they do” – Winston Churchill

The speed of the leader is the speed of the pack – Leaders set the pace!!

Darren Hardy says “People do not go as fast as they can – they go as fast as the leader”

Leaders helps people see themselves better then they are.

“Leadership is the ability to get extraordinary achievement from ordinary people” Brian Tracey

How to get the people you want to do what you want!
• 2 questions you need to ask
1. What attributes do you want? – For example: coachable, passionate, ethical, self confident, integrity
TOP 12 most important attributes to YOU
2. Do YOU have and demonstrate those attributes? You have to posses it to yourself first
Rate yourself on a scale of 1 – 10 on the top 12 attributes – you will discover where you need to go to work on YOU.

KEY Question – If you could quit and sign up with anyone – how would it be?

Would you want to be sponsored by you? What would it take for the everyone to choose you? How can you develop into that person?

2. Skills
Recruiting – everybody recruits
“Great people are not trained, they are found”

What people are looking for?
1. People – great people are there attract other great people
2. Challenge new, different, exciting, unique
3. Opportunity
4. Personal Growth
5. Money

Best recruiter in the world…..You Follow me
“Who you are speaks so loud I can’t hear a word you are saying”

Be the message you bring – You don’t attract what you want, you attract only who you are. We communicate with feelings not words.

Turn SELL into HELP (Hit List vs Help List)
Turn GET to GIVE Strength, courage, confidence, love, belief, hope
Turn COMMUNICATION into CONNECT – Face to face, heart to heart

You can only care about those that care!! Working with the unwilling – cost of working with the wrong person = 10-15x/hour

Why do I want to work with you? Free country – you can build this business.
Here is what it takes to work with me….10 core commitments. If you are good with those 10, I will support you all the way. If one is not followed – see ya.
Talk to a new person each day, go to meetings, convention
Work with fewer people – DEEPER!!

Turn TELL to SHOW
Turn TALK into LISTEN
Fewer statement and ask more questions – find out what their hopes, their dreams, their desires – align meaning and purpose then help them achieve them
Recognize and reward
Turn SEEK PRAISE into GIVE PRAISE

3. VISION
Measure yourself, not by your rank advancement
The people who you are going help – help them accomplish their dreams/goals

21st Century Leadership
Responsibility – Opportunity — Soul Fulfillment

What do you do for your personal development?

I have been MIA this weekend as I attended the largest North American Fitness and Wellness Conference. I was up at 4AM both Friday and Saturday mornings and I am NOT a morning person. Im fact I HATE mornings. I struggle to get out of bed before 8am most mornings. So to get out of bed and arrive at the conference by 5am was a real commitment for me. I am keeping up to-date with my certifications in my personal training and fitness instructor and learning the new trends and information in my industry.

This video talks about the importance of personal development.

What are you doing for your own business and your personal development?

Is Fear holding you back?

Are certain fears holding you captive? Do you not do certain things because of your fear?

We are currently up in cottage country enjoying some R&R and my youngest daughter Jemma (3 years old) was a little nervous about going in the paddle boat. She was afraid it would tip over.

We talked a little about her fears and decided she wanted to try it one more time. I encouraged her to make the choice herself and she wanted to try again.

We ended up spending almost an hour out on the water and every time we tried to go back to the dock, she wanted to keep going.

We need to take lessons from our children at certain times. As adults we ask them to “try again” and “put their fears aside” yet as adults we very rarely do this.

In business, in pleasure, in health and wellness, certain fears hold us back. It may be the fear of the unknown, or the fear of change or the fear of going against the norm and the fear of “what they will think”. These fears can make us miss opportunities, regret decisions and ultimately live the mundane life instead of going after our dreams.

I challenge you, like I did with my 3 year old daughter, GO after your fear and prove it wrong. Not only MAY it be amazing but it could change your world.

Yahoo is closing down accounts – What does it mean?

Yahoo is closing down accounts - How will it effect you?

I just found out that Yahoo is going to
be closing dormant accounts…Any account that
have not been used (logged into it) for a year.

Once they close them down, they are releasing the user names for the public to use.
Do you have any yahoo emails on your list? If you do, they may be closed and no longer valid.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Remove any yahoo accounts that have not been active on your list. You need to do this BEFORE July 15th (I know it is not a lot of time)

But this could impact your email marketing . Let’s think about it — First off, if they haven’t opened an email from you in over a year, they probably deserve to be removed anyway.
Remember – we are only looking for people who are looking for us!

BUT more importantly if a NEW person now has that email and they receive a great email from you BUT because they didn’t subscribe, they may report it as spam.

You do not want this. Your email could get black listed and that would hurt a lot!

Even if those email addresses go unclaimed, your emails you send to them will bounce which will affect impacting your deliver-ability.

NEST STEPS:
Clean up your list before July 15th
(Your autoresponder’s customer support should be
able to walk you through the steps to do this.)

Protect your email list NOW since it is so important. Have you heard the saying “The money is in the list and the fortune is in the follow-up”

Please share so we can all be safe and continue growing our lists and our business.

And remember to hop on my mailing list. I send lots of great tips and tricks that will help you with your business.
