And A New Year Is Upon Us…

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Our Team is gearing up for another season. Everyone is already starting the warm up phase!

In Season 4 we did some amazing things as a team. We did make the finials and we did make it to 3rd place! It was an amazing journey for us, lots of friendships were formed along the way. Lots of growing and learning! So much fun!

We are about to embark on yet another journey, we are going to do a lot of work on list building and working on how to use responders and branding to get us even stronger!
No one on the team has said this is too hard or I cant do that!
Its all in the attitude, and how you approach the journey!

This year I personally want to be a better leader and friend. This year I want to want and that means to dream. This year I will have and will do!

That’s the attitude I will have and with that I do hope that you also will have the I want in 2016 and that you get it!

Are You Stick and Stay?

Hello Readers and Friends;
In all my time on line and in one program or the other, there is one thing that sticks out in my mind that I never herd until the last few years.  Are You Stick and Stay?

Why is that question so important you might be thinking!

Well when I became a team leader a few years ago that is one thing I look for in team members.
1. Do they program jump when things get tough and they need to do a bit of WORK themselves?
2. Do they have the dedication to make the time to do something every day?
3. Are they willing to try something new?
4. And can they work with a team?

These are important because if your building a team in your program “A” and you have a go getter at the beginning and then they start to slow down and soon they leave. They just caused a week link in the bond of the team. If they have a people signed up under them they just abandoned them. This puts stress on the team trying to stay focused and now having to help a orphaned member. Not that this orphan doesn’t need the same attention, but now he / she is getting advise from everyone. so now what is going to happen?

This orphan is now frustrated and gives up also! Leaving more orphans under them. Its a bad cycle.  So How do you fix this?

You really cant! But you can help to see what that member is doing that is causing him / her to feel that they are not succeeding.  Work close with your team and make sure they are all on the same page. Then take some time and look at what the opportunity is that this members is promoting, remember it doesn’t matter what program your in, 9 times out of 10 it is not the program that is not working but something you are doing.

Step back and take a good look at what the member is doing and make suggestion’s on how to improve. EX: If they have a Lead Capture Page, fill out the form and see what the messages are , is the format professional looking? Is the page too bland or does it have just enough bullet points to attract people. do the messages give enough info on the product or program is there contact info n it so that they can contact you and ask questions?

People do business with people they know  so get them to know you!
People do Business with people they Like!
People do Business with people they TRUST!

If You can cover all three your going to be a success.

If You cant then you need to work on you first.

You have to know what your weakness’ is and fix it!
You have to Like yourself If You don’t ! Why & Fix It!

Hope you enjoyed my rant !

Happy Holidays!
