How to stay excited about things…

Simple tip today:
How to ALWAYS stay excited about things?
Answer: ALWAYS stay interested.

Find out new things to learn about your craft, business, spouse, subject, etc…

When you start to realize (or think) you know just about everything
there is to know about what you do, it becomes stale.

Stay excited. Stay young. Stay fresh. Stay interested.

Keep it simple my friend.

24: 22 Year Old Creates FOREX Business. Interview.

I had the privilege of catching up with a good friend of mine
that I haven’t had a chance to connect with in a while.
I was hearing through mutual friends that he was doing really well
making money with FOREX so I decided to give him a call.

We chatted about a few things:

  • What to watch out for when starting out with FOREX.
  • How to start creating your first profit with FOREX.
  • How to start a profitable Business from the start.

Events cost money??

One of the largest mistakes of my career was thinking that EVENTS costed any money.
When I realized that the MORE events I attended the MORE money I made…

That’s when I started making money.

“If you want to make serious money in MLM, you need to attend 4-7 events per year
MINIMUM.” -Ced

The cream always rises to the top.

You will quickly discover who the leaders are in any group, team, organization, etc… When they face crisis.

All you have to do is see who steps up to help handle any major crisis or challenging situation.

This is very instrumental when trying to see who you will invest further time & energy on.

I find that whenever a major leader takes a backseat for a minute, a few upcoming leaders will eventually rise to the top and attempt to fill in the Void.

Its tempting to cut corners and create more problems with “knee jerk reaction” but John C Maxwell says in one of his articles, “Do what is right, not what is easiest”.

That’s usually the few leaders that will make that long term run.

Just some thoughts.

p.s. Here’s my recent video about this.

p.s.s. Here’s my recent podcast on this.

Rebuilding your TEAM when it Slows Down.

Here are my thoughts. Over the years I’ve been fortunate
enough to build several organizations from scratch.

I’ve done very well each time.

I used to always build with one eye in the back of my
head looking for the exit when things started slowing
down..which it always did lol.

Eventually, everything slows down. It’s a law of nature.

What goes up… must come down.

It happens in large corporate America with companies
like Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Amazon, eBay, Restaurants,
Retail Stores,
Costco, etc…

We sometimes forget the stories of these giants in their
first 2-3 years. Sometimes in their first 5-7 years, some major
setback or slowdown happened.

No difference in the world of MLM.

The only difference with EACH Business or Organization
that slows down… is what each person does WHEN
the “slow down season” hits.

My entire perspective changed when I sat down with
a very very successful Network Marketer at an industry
​wide convention in Las Vegas.

I told him that it looked like things were slowing down a little bit
in Business for me.

He asked me how long I had actually been working and building my
Business on a high level (level 10 type activity).

I told him I’d been in the company for about 1 year. He laughed out loud.
He literally “LOL’d”.

He then asked me something that really shook my core.

“Elias, out of that short 1 year that you’ve been in the company, how
much of that time would you say you have spent actually recruiting
and hard core building?”

I answered “100% honest… probably about 6 of those months.”

He laughed even harder.

I started laughing just to calm the awkwardness that I was feeling.
I mean, this was starting to get way out of hand i’m thinking.
This dude is laughing about my Business. lol.

He turns to me and says…
“Bro, Business hasn’t slowed down. You are still Building!
until you’ve done 2-3 solid “90 Day Runs” and BUILT in the
trenches with each spike of growth as you work deep THEN
you have built up the right to look at your Business and
assess whether or not Business is even remotely STARTING
to slow down!”

He then went on to tell me that I will usually get to that point
in about 18-24 months. And that is AFTER heavy, heavy building.

This was an advanced, aggressive conversation between to
industry leaders who have built on larger levels but it also
applies to EVERY SINGLE person who aspires to be an
entrepreneur in the Network Marketing profession.

You can’t really talk about Business slowing down unless
your Business really even started moving yet.

You can’t really talk about the wave dying out when you
are still in the process of catching it!

You can’t really talk about having to re-build a wall that
was never there!

And… you can’t talk about having to re-build a starter
team when you haven’t even gotten out of practice!!

your situations change.” -Tony Robbins

How To Utilize Systems & The Danger of Facebook “Splinter Groups”

Quote

 

Title: How To Utilize Systems & The Danger of Facebook “Splinter Groups”

Show Notes:

In this episode I express the importance of utilizing systems in your network marketing business. I share some of my own personal philosophy that I’ve molded over time from some hard life lessons learned.   If you desire to lead a network marketing organization, systems are there to make your job easier.

 

My philosophy on applying system:

  • Systems should be simple.
  • Systems give clarity to the mission.
  • I align myself with systems I agree with.
  • How I handle leaders that don’t want to follow the system.
  • True leaders lead through their own actions.
  • Why I DO NOT recommend that leaders create Facebook “splinter groups.”

 

Power Quotes:

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.””  – Lao Tzu

“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.”  – Colin Powell

When To Give Up or Go On.

GiveUpGoOn

It’s so tough to decide when to Give up or Go on because
the nature of Entrepreneurs are typically head strong.
We will usually make it happen no matter what.
We will usually push through the “hard times”.

It’s not in our nature to just give up and take a loss.

However, I share my opinion on what I feel about this
issue! Very emotionally charged issue i’m sure.

Please listen, share, comment, and take your Business to the Next Level!

The RR Principle

The RR Principle In this podcast episode I talk about the RR Principle. If you don’t have this and implement this principle, you will always struggle in Business. You can work as hard as you want, however unless you have RR you will always feel like you are behind the ball.

Please listen, share, comment, and take your Business to the Next Level!

Leading Vs. Telling

In this episode I talk about leading versus telling. So many people
think that they are really leading their organization when they really
are just telling them what to do.

What are the differences?
What truly makes a leader?
Is it really just telling people what to do or is it being
the first to make the move while every buddy else bases
their next step off of your actions?

In order to be a well rounded entrepreneur you must know what to do
and you must also know how to relay the message to the rest of your team.

In this podcast I share my thoughts to help you take your life and
your business to the next level.

The Grind vs. The Hustle (What It Means To You)

grindvsHustle

What does it really mean to GRIND? What does it mean to HUSTLE?

To some people it means to work your face off. My opinion on the hustle and grind
is: The grind is what you are willing to do when you don’t feel like it.

The HUSTLE is what you are willing to sacrifice until you achieve the
results you desire.

Faith, Skill, Business, & Bricks…(1 min. read)

5

Why do some people crumble in the face of discourgment and others rise from the ashes, bigger and better than before? What is the secret? Faith, as Steve Jobs said, and I would like to add Skill.

In business, I like to think of faith as the willingness to believe that good can come out of any situation we are faced with. One of the ways I “keep the faith” is by acquiring skills. Every unique challenge also poses a unique moment to learn something new. Sometimes, you even discover skills that you never knew you had. Faith and skill go hand in hand. Skills require faith to attain and faith requires skills to maintain.

Challenges are inevitable. Our willingness to see them as opportunities to learn and push forward, is what makes the difference. Keep the faith, learn new skills, and while life throws bricks, we will build our dreams. Mahalo.

Why I Love the Mud!

7

 

Today, a thought from Gary Vaynerchuk (I’ll get the episode to you as soon as I can find it).

“Think long term, like 10 to 20 year increments, even 20 to 30.”

Yes we have to get the day-to-day things done but, we have to keep our eye on our goals simultaneously. That long term vision makes the daily grind worthwhile. It can change your attitude toward work and make you an over-all more grateful person.  Long-term vision gets us through the mud because we can see dry land.

There is no elevator to real success in anything you do. Step by step, get out there and grind my friends.

When Talent Meets Grit…(1 min read)

I know, it’s never easy to hear but hey, it’s tough love.  Plus I didn’t say it he did and if he sold 350 million copies of his books and counting, maybe we should listen.

How much grit is enough?  When you know you have the talent, when you know you have the passion to be great, it can be frustrating when success doesn’t come as quick as we think it should.  Sometimes we focus too much on talent.  Take a car for example.  Talent is like a  brand new sports car.  Opportunities are like high octane fuel.  But my friends, all of that will sit idle in a garage without someone willing to drive it.  Drive your own talent, don’t wait for someone to do it.

They’re Finally Catching On…(2 min read)

What’s the point of success if you end up alone?  The true beauty of the network marketing industry is finally being recognized today thanks to the widespread understanding of collaboration. Traditionally modeled companies are seeing that it pays to work in teams, something the network marketers industry has been doing all along.

Take Avon for example.  It was founded in 1886 to help women create an independent stream of income from home. To put it in greater perspective, that was 34 years before women had the right to vote.  They proudly wave the flag “empowering women for 130 years.”

Some network marketers find loop holes, ways to mass recruit and you can make a large amount of money doing that. However, if you’d like to make an income and impact other peoples’ lives, build a team.

True network marketers know that the success of their network marketing business is directly predicated on the success of their teams.  True network marketing is personal development and service disguised as business.  Why make just an income, when you can make an income and a difference?

Time To Leave The Shore…(2 min read)

2

A pic and a thought to start off this week.  A little surf story because you know how I roll.  When my kids were learning how to surf, one of the very first skills I taught them was how to read the ocean.  They learned to identify currents, tides, and how to count the sets.

For any of you unfamiliar with the ocean, waves come in sets.  Sometimes a rouge wave or what we call a freak set will roll in.  For the most part, they are predictable and patterned.  Between each set is a period of calm.  That calm period is the best time to paddle out or in.  Reading the patterns keeps you safe.  Sometimes, so safe you never want to leave the shore.

In network marketing, many get caught on the shore reading the sets.  The “personal development trap,” I call it.  We’ve all been there in some way, shape, or form.  You keep studying, training, and waiting for the best time to go for it.

I say, you already know enough to get started. Start small and work your way up. By all means at least get in the water and paddle around in the shallow.  Get a feel for the current and the temperature of the water.  Learn from other people out there “killing it” in their business.

You’ve counted the sets, now lets paddle out!  Happy Monday!

A Lesson Only BROKE Can Teach…(1 min read)

broke-monopoly-guyWhen you have nothing left financially or when you’re starting from the bottom, what you DO HAVE is very obvious.  In the midst of crisis, you don’t have time to focus on what you can’t do.  If you were standing next to someone who suddenly started to suffer a massive heart attack would you:

A.  Call for help, “Does anyone know CPR?!”

B.  Call for, “Who doesn’t know CPR, so I can eventually find someone who does?!”

I’m going to assume we all would say A!  That is the core of  self-awareness: Knowing your strengths.  Tough times are the best teachers.  Get in a habit of responding to tough situations with strength.  Be a first RESPONDER not a first REACTOR.  Use the struggle as mental conditioning to develop your emotional IQ.  Wealth does not eradicate crisis.  Don’t think that when you get to the top, you’ll have the time to be “a nice guy” or a “patient person.”  Who you are in the pit is who you will be on the top.

When I say BROKE, I mean it figuratively.  It can mean out of money, out of encouragement, and so on.  At some point in our lives we all feel BROKE.  And that my friends can be the start of your self-awareness journey.  Mahalo for reading.  You know how it goes, let get connected.

My point is, the back-up we need is out there, we just need to search for it.  Chances are someone has been through a similar struggle as you and has talked about it on some on-line platform.  Today, it’s not about “who’s the smartest,” it’s about ” who’s the most resourceful.”  Comment below, email me your questions.  My goal is to back YOU up & bring YOU content that is relevant, that will save you time.  Aloha my friends!

3 Tips to Get You Pitch Perfect…(2 min read)

1

We’ve all heard of the “elevator pitch,” (explain your business in 30 seconds) but how effective is it really? Are you even using it properly? I hear this word get thrown around to the point of exhaustion.  Today it’s often synonymous with uncomfortable sales situations and coercion tactics.  If you take the time to sharpen up this skill it can be prove to be indispensable. Lets use the metaphor of baseball.  Take MLB Champ Tom Seaver for example, arguably one of the best pitchers of all time.  He has spent a lifetime perfecting his pitch through victory and defeat.  Here are a few of his quotes:

“The artful pitcher must take the inevitable peaks and valleys of pitching in stride and never give in to the batters or lose sight of his/her own strengths.”

  1. Prepare yourself & bet on your strengths: Right out the gates, you can’t possibly know everything about the product or service you are marketing.  A good start is to learn a whole lot about what YOU love about your product first.  Add this to your pitch and it will naturally ooze with genuine passion and excitement.

 

“Pitch within yourself.”

  1. Be You: The script is an outline to help you stay on track. If you’re company encourages a certain language or script, use it in your own way.  Your family and friends know you. They can read your pitch a mile away if you suddenly switch to “script reading robot” mode.  With a cold contact (someone you’ve met for the first time), you can be more formal but be careful if it’s outside of your strength zone.

 

“God is living in New York, and he’s a Mets fan.”

  1. Conviction: Gain a personal conviction of your product or service.  Most elevator pitches lead to more dialog and usually the next phase of the conversation will be, “Have you tried it?” “What do you like about it?”  After working so hard to encourage dialog you don’t want to start fumbling with your words.  People respect authenticity.

Be consistent in your efforts and don’t worry about the numbers.  Apply these tips to your elevator speech and let me know how it goes.  Let’s Play Ball!

Why You Should Be Grateful For Objections…(2 min read)

 2
ob·jec·tion
əbˈjekSH(ə)n/
noun
1. an expression or feeling of disapproval or opposition; a reason for disagreeing.

Take note of the first 4 words of this definition.  That is why you should get excited for objections.  When someone is giving you an objection, they are expressing to you a feeling.  It may not be a good feeling but it is an expression, and that means you have started to build a closer relationship.  The main reason behind the growth of Zappos.com (on-line shoe company) is the care in which they handle objections.  They offer every customer a 365-day return policy with free shipping both ways.  Can they really make money with such a generous return policy?  Won’t people take advantage of that?  Zappos is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Amazon with an annual revenue over $2 billion.  The vision for the company, painted by 24 year-old Tony Hsieh, was simple and crystal clear.

“We’re a service company that just happens to sell shoes.”

Currently, Zappos.com is a model company of online customer service.  They have excelled in handling objections because in my opinion they don’t “Handle It,” they “Accept Them.”  They use objections as a platform to build lasting customer relationships.  How can we apply this to network marketing?

  1.  Have A Long-Term Mindset:  Think in 10-20 year increments.  Listen to your prospect’s concerns and don’t rush them.  Start the relationship and revisit the prospect at a later date.
  2. Pay Attention:  Listen to the concern and offer solutions that are relevant to them.
  3. Product Knowledge:  Educate yourself on commonly asked questions.  If you don’t know the answer, know where to find the answer in less than 5 minutes.  Find the answer for them, don’t just refer them to a site with info.
  4. Put Your Gloves Down:  Don’t get defensive.  This is emotional fitness at it’s best.  Hearing objections for the first time can be a bit shocking but the edge wears off over time.
  5. Find Solutions: If the objection comes from a customer not happy with a product, know your company’s customer service channels.  Fix problems as fast as humanly possible.  Take care of the situation for them.

I hope you find these points helpful.  Leave a comment below.  I’d love to see how you handle objections.

Easter, for many is a time of re-birth.  It’s a season of reflection and hope.  Whether you are religious or not, I encourage you to embrace at least this one principle.  Be Better.  Even if its just a little bit better, its still an improvement.  The road to acquiring any skill or dream is riddled with pot holes and detours.  Seth Godin says:

Feel Stronger With These 5 Questions…(2 min read)

Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.- Anthony Robbins

Looking For Strength

The power of questions was first brought to my attention many years ago when I read “Awaken The Giant Within,” by Tony Robbins.  He teaches that if you’re not satisfied with the answers you get in life try asking different questions.  Makes sense sure, but what is a powerful question, and what questions should I ask myself more specifically if I’m looking to discover my strengths?

Before you ask yourself these questions clear your mind of any prejudice.  Today begins the first phase of your personal audit.  I’ve dug deep into hours of podcasts and articles for this one and here are my top 5:

 

1.  I feel the best about myself when I ___________.

This is a questions based on knowing your skills.  What are you great at?  What comes easy to you?  What do you know people can rely on you to deliver.

%22Your adversity is your advantage. Your past has built muscles not wounds.%22

2.  What is the greatest adversity you have faced?

Darren Hardy said “Your adversity is your advantage.  Your past has built muscles not wounds.”  Everyone has a story to tell.  What Goliath have you faced or are currently facing in your life.

3.  During those times of great adversity, what got you through it?

Not gonna lie, this one made me tear up a bit.  No macho status here.  Maybe you have great friends and family, unshakable faith, courage, strong will power.  Dig deep.  Something pulled you through.  If you are in the midst of the struggle, what do you cling to?  What do you know for sure?

4.  When do you feel most creative?

This one comes from Seth Godin, a Best-Selling author of 18 books.  He is what I call the Godfather of Modern Marketing.  He says today everyone can be an artist.  You don’t have to wait for a publisher or producer to take notice of you in order to get your shot.  The internet has leveled the playing field and people are writing the rules.  In what field of interest do you feel the creative juices flowing?

5.  What do strangers say about you?

Usually your family and friends look at you through a rose colored lens.  Gary Vaynerchuk advises turning to social media to cast the widest net.  He turns to his audience and asks questions like: What have you found helpful?  What has my best work been?  If you don’t have a social media following ask co-workers, managers, or people you serve with in a church calling.

These are my top 5 questions my friends.  I hope they get the gears turning.

Do you think you can just walk away from your dream?  It will always follow you.  Working on your dream is difficult but the burden of regret is no light load either.

I have dedicated my career to helping people make the most of their network marketing experience.  I knew it would be a huge responsibility.  I knew people would blame me if they didn’t succeed.  I knew it would payoff slowly.  But, I did it anyway.  Why?  Because helping people succeed was always my dream.

So today my friends I say “GO BIG, there is NO going home.”  Don’t give yourself the option of turning back.  One foot in front of the other, step by step, we can do this together.

Are You Aware of This Person?…(2 min read)

SELF AWARENESS-3YOURSELF!?

     I first heard of self-awareness a couple years ago but only in relation to meditation. It was something to ponder lakeside in a down-ward-dog pose, while drinking a green smoothie. Basically, I thought it was an optional exercise and to be frank, not really my style. I have since been enlightened, not just by the practice of meditation, but also by the blunt-force words of Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of VaynerMedia. In a May 2015 article for Inc.com, Gary Vaynerchuk: Self-Awareness Is Your Most Important Attribute, Gary digs right into the ignored topic and does so with classic Gary V. finesse. He broke down the meta-physical subject into digestible pieces that can fuel businesses TODAY. Every social media platform is flooding with so-called experts and life coaches. How can you stand out? Do you feel like you’re getting swallowed in the tide?

“People need to know that they have the tools within themselves.”
-Deepak Chopra

     There is a common belief for many Network Marketers that once they get the tools they can start. They setout on a magical journey of personal development and sadly their businesses never leave the starting line. I’ve seen this happen to many talented, hustle-worthy individuals. I’m here to tell you, Start Today with What You Have!

“Self-awareness isn’t only just betting on your strengths, it’s accepting all your short comings.”
-Gary Vaynerchuk

2

     How can we make this tangible? Look at it this way: it is common practice to audit a company, accounts, or schools. Audits examine, evaluate, and expose strengths and weaknesses. A self-audit can do just that for you. Why don’t we do it more? In my opinion it’s the exposure of weakness that freaks people out (myself included). We fear audits because we think that the sole purpose is to look for holes in our game. First and foremost we have to assess our strengths. This can give you the critical focal point to start building your business. In this process we naturally expose our weaknesses. Personal development can help you accept these weaknesses and work on them. Then the beauty of a team comes into play when you begin to build a team of varying talents.

“I think being at peace with yourself and your skillset is such an important part of this.”
-Gary Vaynerchuk

     Network Marketing is a vehicle for achieving dreams and you get to pick the make and model. Remember, no one has walked in your shoes or has seen the stuff you’ve seen through the lens that you have. Your upbringing, struggles, and triumphs, have culminated bringing you to this very point in your life. Bring THAT to the table and build a your business your way.

Ok, I’m not gonna lie. This is one of my favorite pet peeves… when I hear someone say “just put in the work”.
Well, yeah… but what kind of work.

If I’m working my face off digging a really big hole into the ground, hours later I’m still going lower rather than
higher lol.

If you wish to be Successful in Business…

There is really only 1 major thing that separates those who
are killing it in their Business and those who aren’t.

This is also the same reason why some continue to make
excuses and there are some who don’t even try.

Are you ready for it??….

That one thing is: COMMITMENT.

Be committed 110% to your mission.
Be committed 110% to your dream.
Be committed 110% to what you set out to do!!

The desire to be FIRST…

Many Entrepreneurs have a great desire to be FIRST in their company, city, town,
to break the ice and capitalize in a big way from timing.

During situations like this, I think it’s important to clarify
what it is folks are truly after.

I once heard said, “It’s not about BEING FIRST in a marketplace. It’s about
being considered FIRST.”

Point is this:

When your product, service, or opportunity is considered, It is far more powerful
to be considered FIRST over your other company reps VERSUS just simple being
FIRST to enroll in the program.

If you want to be FIRST in anything, make sure you
dominate the market first over everything and everyone else.
