Quote of The Day – Press on

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” Calvin Coolidge

Building Relationships Online

How Well Are You Building Relationships Online?

Social media gives you the ability to connect with influential people around the world and help you build powerful relationships online. The relationships you form while you are online can be some of the most profitable and helpful if you know how to cultivate the relationship. When you create dynamic online relationships you open the door to brainstorming together, assistance, joint ventures, masterminding, coaching and mentoring opportunities.

Your actions and conversations you have with people allow you to brand yourself. Are you someone who can be trusted? Are you supportive to other internet marketers? Do you offer value to the marketplace? Do you offer great customer service? What does your profile say about you? What type of post do you make to your social media walls. Are you always pitching your opportunity? All these things will get noticed and may open or close doors as you are  building relationships online.  Always give 100% to every email, Face Book, Twitter, blog  and video post. You never know what it may lead to.

Six great tips from a recent conference call on Building Relationships Online and Offline:

1. PATIENCE DON’T PUSH – Give people the space to say yes or no.  Let them move towards you. Fill your pipeline with so many people that you don’t get anxious when someone doesn’t call you back. The worst thing you can do is wait by the phone for someone to call you to tell you they are interested. Become an educator look for the people that give you permission to take the next step with them.

2. SEPARATE THE INVITATION FROM THE PRESENTATION – If someone asks you what you do, give them a 30 second HIGH LEVEL overview and if they express a little interest, tell them you will set up a time to meet or call them. Don’t present the business on the run or in the inbox. Building relationships online are never about throwing up in peoples inbox or automatically posting links everywhere.

3. YOU ARE CREATING MOMENTUM IN THE CONVERSATIONS YOU HAVE – People will watch you as you build your business . . . some will come around later. It’s all about THEIR timing and not yours. You’re planting seeds. You just don’t know when that one person will join you that will be a successful business builder. The conversations you have can create an invisible momentum that can take months or years to come to fruition. Be careful never to bash another Network Marketing Company. We are building relationships online not tearing down other network marketing companies.

4. YOUR SUCCESS ISN’T ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT, YOUR COMP PLAN, OR YOUR UPLINE – If you don’t like the result you are getting, take a look at the energy you are sending out. Comp plans don’t make winners. Every company has big earners and lots of people that sign up and set their kit on the refrigerator waiting for money to fall from the sky. Your success is about your energy, who you attract and how you build relationships online and offline. There has never been a successful program where everyone makes money because 90% of the people aren’t willing to do any work. You want to be part of a system that rewards you for creating value with lots of people.

5. YOU TEND TO ATTRACT WHAT YOU BELIEVE - If you have doubts about network marketing, you’ll probably struggle because you’ll attract others that doubt. Again . . . it goes back to the energy you are sending out. If you believe in the dream you tend to attract others like you. If you are attracting lazy and unmotivated people, it’s important to really dig in to your personal development. Go back and read, The Business of the 21st Century by Robert Kiyosaki. When you doubt, others will doubt. When you believe, others will believe.

6. TO STAY POSITIVE YOU MUST STAY PLUGGED IN – We do live in a very negative world. It’s so easy to get caught up in the drama of negativity that’s all around us. Even if its 15-30 minutes a day, read from a personal development book or listen to a CD in your car.

7. BUILD YOUR RELATIONSHIPS ONLINE WITH INTEGRITY – Your reputation is never worth risking over a check or a promotion. A check is one time, but your integrity is forever. Protect it at all costs. Usually when you start making decisions that will benefit you and hurt others, it will come back to bite you on the butt. Don’t cut corners. When you build relationships online with integrity, in the long run you will always come out on top.

My grandma used to say “anything worth having is worth working for.” I have to agree with grandma. However we are at a time when so many people are looking for a get rich magic potion that will fall out of the sky all while not putting in the work and getting their jersey dirty.

Getting rich takes time and effort unless you have that rich uncle or a winning lottery ticket.

Robert Kiyosaki defines the law of compensation as returns are minimal in spite of massive effort at the start, yet returns can be massive with minimal effort over time.

Those who are in the trenches realize that if you press relentlessly in pursuit of your dreams and goals, you will be rewarded for the fruits of your labor.

Now this will require patience. There will be disappointments and days you feel like throwing the towel in. You may even question yourself, is this worth it. The person who wins the race is the one that keeps going in spite of the naysayers, in spite of not being able to see the finish line. They have a don’t stop won’t stop mentality.

I am reminded of reading Jordan Adlers’ story in his book, Beach Money. Jordan tells the story of not making a penny in network marketing until his twelfth marketing company. Today, Jordan makes a seven figure income and is richly rewarded for not giving up. Wow, now that is what I call relentless.

The question is do you have what it takes while in the building phase you have yielded a small amount of money or perhaps none. Most people won’t, they decide it’s not worth the time.

Think of the magic of compounding interest. It all starts with one penny. Then like magic, you are compensated with extra money BUT it all started with one penny. Building a house requires one brick at a time. Brick by brick and then one day, you have your dream home BUT it all started with one brick.

First lesson, find your passion and then GET STARTED.

Next, get training, a great coach, a mastermind group, and add personal development to your plan.

Last, never ever, ever give up on yourself and your dreams in spite of the circumstances and regardless of the situation.

Till next time…..Live on purpose and make it happen,

Six Ways to Brand You On Online

Your brand is YOU! You have to understand that the value you deliver is not in a product or a presentation but in your brand, which is YOU.  The saying goes, people only do business with people who they know, like and trust.

Be genuine. Bring value and people will partner with you. No pitching or shoving your business down people’s throat.

Six Ways to Brand You on Online:

1.    Set up a public profile on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace. Make sure you have a nice profile picture. This picture should not include animals or logos. People want to identify and get to know you.

2.    Create a blog.  Blog about a wide range of things that relate to your industry. Think about any information relating to your industry niche which your blog visitors will be interested in seeing on your blog. Identify the sub-niches in your industry and write about those as well. You should never run out of ideas on what to blog about.

3.    Participate in forums and comment on other people’s blogs. No pitching but offer meaningful comments and show a voice of authority about your industry.

4.     Article Marketing. People will mention quality articles pieces on Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites. This will give you a buzz in viral marketing.

5.    Create an effective e-mail signature. Your signature should include your full name, what you do, how to reach you, and a link to your website at the end of every email. Check out www.mylivesignature.com for a beautiful signature to add to your e-mails or blogs.  See my signature at the end of this article.

6.    Create a catchy tagline or slogan like Nike – Just Do It. My tagline is Live on Purpose and Make it Happen.

Lastly, remember not all brands are for everybody.  Don’t take it personal. Continue to offer value and the right people will come to you.

Till the next time…..

Are you Attractive?

4 January 2011


Do you have Your PDP (Personal Development Plan) for 2011?

Think of your PDP as a roadmap to success for your life.  Your PDP gives you clarity for your goals and is also your accountability partner. This roadmap is your NO EXCUSE zone. Be flexible and adjust as you go along.

So what areas of your life would you like to improve or develop?  Possible areas: spiritual, family, financial, physical, personal, family or any other developmental area.

Personally, I have a PDP for my kids. This includes select areas where I am helping to shape and develop them. My daughter loves to draw. Actually cartooning is one of her favorite things to do.  I enrolled her in a cartooning art class. She loved this class and it expanded her mind and helped her to develop even more details and vivid colors with her cartooning and other art projects that she loves to draw.  What a great confidence booster. This is one example but should give you a starting point for your kids.

So we have our list. Now we are ready for the next step.

Step 2

If you have never completed a PDP skip this step until you get to Step 8. Step 2 should be a review of last year. Did you accomplish everything you wanted to last year? Make an accomplishment list. Often we get caught up achieving goals but do not take the time to stop and give ourselves a pat on the back. Why is this important? This is to remind you that you are a goal setter and more importantly, a goal achiever.

Step 3

We are now ready to fill in our development areas. Be as detailed as possible for each area. For example, if you want to lose weight or gain weight, write down how much and the date that you would like to reach your goal. I will lose 15 lbs by June 6th is more definitive than merely stating I will lose 15 lbs. This creates a sense of urgency.

Step 4

Create a WHY. Why do you want to start a business, lose weight, run a 5k, volunteer. Buckle down because this why will serve as your reminder for the days that you want to quit or make excuses.

Step 5

For those areas that you assigned a date, mark them on your calendar or put them in your phone as a reminder. Find an accountable partner if necessary. Review your goals periodically to make sure you are on track.

Step 6

Create a vision board for your goals. Let’s say that you plan to pay off a loan. Write a check for the amount due and the date that you plan to pay this debt. Place this check on your board to serve as a reminder and create a sense of urgency. Saving for your dream vacation this year – put a picture of that exact place on your board.  This is also a good time to create a vision board for your kids.

Step 7

Celebrate you! Reward yourself for small victories. Get back on track and keep hammering at your goals.

Step 8

Year-end-review.  How did you do?  High five to you on the areas that you conquered.  Did you lose sight on some goals?  Figure out why and laser in what you need to do to make this goal a reality for next year.

Remember aim high and if you reach for the moon you have a greater chance to fall somewhere amongst the stars. Get in the NO EXCUSE ZONE for this year. This is your year, you can do it. See you at the finish line!

I would love to hear your goals. Please feel free to comment.

Till the next time….
