3 Way Calls (Presenter Version)

If Lycans can 3 way call, you can too!

If Lycans can 3 way call, you can too!

A couple months back, I recorded an episode about conducting 3 way calls. Today I do an episode about being the presenter on a 3 way call.

I didn’t realize the lack of training that is available out there when it comes to successful presenting on a 3 way call. So, I decided to make this podcast available in iTunes for you folks to download and listen in.

There are a few key points that I throw out there fairly quickly so make sure you are writing notes my friends!

See you at the beach!

Vi-Crunch Crashes SnapChat

Overwhelming Response To Vi Crunch Launch Crashes Snapchat
Press Release | 8/27/2013

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23, 2013 — ViSalus, the leading weight-loss and fitness Challenge platform, inspired thousands of attendees at its Vitality Conference in Orlando to download Snapchat for clues about the company’s latest product launch. The ViSalus internal social team – whose initiatives continue to break new ground in the direct selling industry – utilized the popular photo-video sharing app to engage its independent Promoters in learning more about the patent-pending Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal. The response was overwhelming with nearly three thousand downloading Snapchat in the first 24 hours – crashing the app twice.
The ViSalus social team created simple, fun videos starring the internal staff that demonstrated a “crunch” sound, from crushing a can to doing a stomach crunch, to tease the Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal.

“We continue to try to meet our customers where they are. Their active social engagement on burgeoning social networking platforms, like Snapchat, demonstrates they are a unique audience on the cutting edge of communication,” said Blake Mallen, ViSalus Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Office. “We are thrilled that the launch of Vi Crunch Protein Super Cereal, which we kept under wraps for two years, clearly inspired and excited them.”

Facebook & The Social Media Landscape

Over the last few years, Social Media was seeing double digit growth in
the 30 percent ranges and up.

Last year, Social Media only went up 6.8% in the United States alone.

In addition, Facebook lost over 1.3 Million users
in the 4th quarter of 2012.

Question is, Where is everyone on the internet going?

Are less and less people using social media?? NO.

Some are saying that U.S. Social Media will “slow down to a
trickle” in the coming years ahead even though International
Social Media will continue to boom.

2013-05-24_15-54-24

There are more and more competition and tremendously
more Social Platforms like Instagram, Tumblr, GooglePlus, Vine,
etc… which leaves a lot of room for speculation as to
where all the traffic will be headed.

So the real issue actually isn’t are you on Social Media,
the question is WHERE in Social Media are you dominating.

Keep a watchful eye on where you will be spending your time.

Personally, I think Facebook will turn into the “MySpace”
all over again in about 24-48 months.

If you are heavily dependent on Facebook and it’s different
marketing / advertising, I’d probably start diversifying.

I’ve been testing, tweaking, and experimenting with a
number of different social media sites behind the
scenes. Stay tuned for my discoveries.

In the meantime, I’d suggest learning how to make moves
quick with social media (the way it is NOW) while it’s roaring.
This is by far, the best social media course I’ve seen thus far.
“Lead Generation Mastery” taught me how to generate leads
on demand with social media & internet in general.

Great Leaders Aren’t Born…Only Babies.

I recently heard a story told by John C. Maxwell. He
talked about a group of tourists that were roaming around
this really old town taking pictures, taking in the sites,
talking to people, etc…

One of the tourists sat down at a bench where an old
man was seated.

Right as soon as he sat down, he asked the old man
“How many great men were born in this town?”

It took a few seconds for the old man to respond
and he finally said “No great men were born here,
only babies”.

The moral of the story is that so many times we as
Network Marketers idolize leaders who have created
a phenomenal amount of success in the industry.

We sometimes forget that these great leaders are
GREAT because they got really good at doing the
small tasks very well.

If you can’t wake up at 6am to get front row seats
at your convention, what makes you think you’ll wake
up at 5am to get on the phone with your prospects
2 time zones ahead of you?

If you can’t spend $99 for tickets to a company convention,
what makes you think that you will get an entire team of
people to get to events.

If you can’t make 1 phone call to your “chicken list” prospect,
what makes you think that you can teach an entire team
of people how to conquer their fears of talking to their
contacts.

Remember my friends…

Great leaders aren’t instantly created in this business.
They sign applications, make their first call, write their
first blog post
, shoot their first video, & get nervous
in front of their first presentation…just like many
of you.

Only NEW PROMOTERS join this business.

That’s it.

Get out there and KILL IT in your Network Marketing business.

Do you know how to cash in on BLOGGING like I do?? A few of my
friends will teach you 3 MAJOR tips on CASHING in on your
blog EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW JACK ABOUT BLOGGING!!

Order from the menu…not the price.

It’s really easy to get caught up in the “price tag” when we
go to a restaurant and look at the menu. We naturally
want to order only the items that you feel would fit
your budget.

Because of that, we don’t enjoy any other items on the
menu, possibly items that we would really love.

Now, obviously I know that many people (especially now days)
are really budgeting and trying to stay within budget so
that has it’s place. However, I’m speaking more about this
industry of Network Marketing / Home based business.

Watch this video, you’ll see what I mean…

How To Speak The Language Of Success

Do you know that you are what you eat?
Most people know that…

You are also what you speak too.

Study after study has shown that if you have a larger
vocabulary, you are most likely making more money
than the person who doesn’t.

This one study showed that people with extensive vocabularies
most likely earn up to 3x what the average person earns
with an average vocabulary.

Think about a regular job… Maybe, think about your current job.
What type of vocabulary do you need there?

Think about a 6, or even 7 figure income earner in Network Marketing.
What type of language is being used there??

I’ll bet you that high 6 and 7 figure earners know another language
as well. Talk about Vocabularies in 2 different languages!!

Just think about this…

If you really studied your industry and your company,
wouldn’t you be using words and terms that most others
who AREN’T studying it would be??

If you are engaged in your company, opportunity, and
movement that your company is behind, you are probably
taking more action than most others as well.

If you are taking more action, you are probably getting
more results.

Here’s what you need to understand..

Success in MLM has a lot to do with personal growth.
Never stop growing. Never stop learning.

Here’s the assignment for you today:

Learn 5 new Vocabulary words that have to do with
either your comp plan, product, company, or Industry
and use all 5 of those words in your normal
everyday conversation when talking about your business.

Watch and observe the type of response you will now get
when talking to your prospects.

Eyebrows will be raised fairly quickly once you noticeably
step up your game.

When you start educating yourself and implementing that
education, you also start attracting those types of people
as well. Serious Promoters who are serious about building
their business.

Isn’t that what we all want in the first place??

Have some fun with it and start speaking the language
of Success.

Broke Financially vs. Broke Mentally

In 2004, my wife and I were so broke it wasn’t funny.

We had NO savings, I didn’t have a steady paying job. 100% commissioned. She wasn’t working.
Sometimes I would come home with $200 dollar paychecks..for 2 weeks.

We made about $18,000 in 2004.

I still get emotional about this time in my life even as I write this post.
My heart gets heavy every single time.

Anyhow, back to the story..

A friend of mine told me about a government program that helped you
Out with groceries, diapers, etc.. (not welfare or foodstamps)
We’d be able to save money on other things because the government
Would be able to pay our bills for us.

I was clueless as to what this entailed. All I heard was some program where
You got free groceries and diapers from the store.

After applying to for this program, I thought to myself. “There has to be a catch.
There is NO WAY that we are getting this stuff for FREE.”

However, I was fine with the idea for the time being.

Our first trip to the store was interesting. I started throwing in all kinds of stuff
Into the basket thinking that I was on some kind of shopping spree.
My wife stopped me and said that we could only get certain brands, certain
Types of groceries, etc..

I was shocked. I was upset.

When we finally got to the check-out line, I asked my wife “so, where’s the money that they
Gave you?”

It was at that time, she reached in her purse and pulled out this gigantic pink
Brochure type booklet. I was wondering.. “What the heck is she doing?” as I nervously
Looked around to see peoples expressions.

I tried hiding what my wife was holding because it was a symbol to everyone in
Line that I was getting government assistance.

Now, let me say..

I have nothing against government assistance. Nor, do I have anything
against people who are on those types of programs.

I was just in shock because I was taught by my parents to
never, ever take handouts…especially Government ones.

It all hit me in an instant what type of situation I had allowed my wife and I to be
In. When we got into the car in the parking lot, I looked at my wife with tears
In my eyes when I told her, “we can’t do this..I can’t do this”.

She just nodded her head in agreement, filled with emotion as her eyes welled up with tears too.
She was a few months pregnant with our second child.

At that moment, I took that pink brochure / card and tore it up. We made a decision
That night that we would not take part in anything of that nature.

Some people would say that I was over reacting and being irresponsible as a
Husband and father.
Others (who I really look up to as entrepreneurs) were proud of me
And congratulated me in taking the first step to being financially independent.

I share this story because it weighed heavy on my heart as I stood in that same
Grocery store tonight behind a young couple who looked like they were going
Through the same situation as I was just a few short years ago.

I felt like reaching out to the young father and putting my hand on his shoulder
Telling him that if he rips up that card in the parking lot things will be
Different. Truth is, I don’t know if that will really be the story.

I don’t know if that young man will have the guts to take a stand
and have the courage to be financially independent.

If someone would have showed me where I would end up a few years
down the road if I decided to NEVER be “mentally broke”,
my mindset would have very different through the whole
journey. All my mentors TOLD me that I would arrive at my destination
if I took all the right steps (like that one) through the course.

If someone could’ve showed me what my journey would look like
before I hit the six figure income level, I probably would have
freaked out. It was a tough ride.

It will probably be a tough ride for you too.
I hope your ride isn’t as crazy as mine was but I sure hope it is
as exciting as mine was.

What’s funny was once you get to the $100K mark in MLM, you
aren’t willing to settle there. You always look at ways to get
you to the $1,000,000 level next.

In conclusion, I will say that each and every one of you
reading this post have the absolute power to change your life
and everything in it IF..and only IF you are willing to have a lot
of courage and guts to take a stand.

Just because you aren’t making as much money in MLM
as you’d like, don’t stop.
Just because you aren’t where you’d like to be in life,
don’t just give up. That’s too easy. No guts required there.

That’s the stupidest (excuse the wording) thing I’ve ever seen.
When people give up because they got a few or a hundred “NO’s”.
To think that they are letting others dictate their future just
boggles my brain.

Misery loves company. When I see people give up, it breaks my heart
but I can’t take that experience away from them. Some people need
to feel the bottom before they get hungry for the top.

Some people need to feel the bottom a couple or few times before
they start realizing that rock bottom isn’t any fun.

I can’t take that blessing and opportunity away from people.
I think of it as a gift. Of course I’d like to see everyone prosper
but I don’t know if that person is really willing to pay the price
like I was.

Never let yourself go broke mentally. It’s just not worth it.

So my challenge to you today is:

Do something that you have always known you’ve wanted
to do. Make sure this places you closer on your journey to
being successful in this business.

It might be something small like getting a savings account.
Maybe making that call to that person you haven’t called yet.
Maybe it’s getting that t-shirt or pair of jeans that makes
you look and feel like a million bucks when you wear it.

Success actually comes in an instant. All you need to do is decide
right now! Decide that you are a success starting right
now! Don’t talk it…do it! KILL IT!!!!

The 1 Thing You Can’t Teach

There are a lot of things in the Network Marketing industry that you can teach.
You can teach someone how to be persuasive.
You can teach someone how to be a superstar recruiter.
You can even teach a few slick lines to say when you get an objection.

However, there is one thing that can never be taught no matter how hard you try.

This one thing is the major advantage that people who earn millions in
The industry have above those who make thousands or hundreds.

Do you have any idea what it is??

It is COURAGE.

Courage is a tough thing to learn and implement. Learning courage usually means
That you are in an uncomfortable situation. Someone once told me that
The money is made in the “fear zone” in this business.

You will never achieve your goals if you aren’t in the fear zone.
Usually, if you are feeling nervous about something it’s because you
Are faced with a moment where you need to dig a litter deeper in your
Gut and pull out some of that courage.

Some of you reading this might be faced with a single situation or a
Series of “situations” very shortly that will test your courage level.

It’s what us entrepreneurs call a “gut check”.

Here’s the challenge..

Face something today that forces you to give yourself a “gut check”.

Rally up some courage my friend. The only way to get more courage…
Is to put yourself in situations where you can practice.

Although everybody wants to be a conqueror, many run the other way
When they realize a battle needs to be fought first.

Will that be you? Get out there and face it!

What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas…Sort Of.

I’m writing this blog post from my suite here at the Luxor. I decided to stay
here because this hotel really plays a pivotal part in my
Network Marketing career.

In 2002, my wife and I were dead broke and we had just gotten married.
We didn’t have a lot of money at the time. Infact, I had just gotten
fired from my timeshare job as an Assistant Marketing Manager.

I worked for a tyrant. My boss was hilarous though. It was almost
as if he was always hyped up on something. He Always pumped about
something. He was always looking for the next person to
fire. Usually, it was me that was firing someone.

He made me do the dirty work. It sucked.

One day, I found out that I was on the other end of the firing squad.

My wife and I got married a few weeks later. She was making $12/ hr. at
a small local hotel as a baker. I was unemployed.

We came out to our Honeymoon here in Las Vegas. We stayed at the Polo
Towers, an older timeshare resort on the strip. We got that hookup
from my mom since she worked at their sister resort.

I remember looking down the Las Vegas strip at a beacon of light that
illuminated the night sky. We headed down to that bright spotlight
and learned that it was the Luxor.

Because I was a big fan of pyramid structures, I thought that it was
so amazing. At the time, $200+ a night hotel rooms were way out of
my league.

But I told myself that If I ever made it in Network Marketing, I’d
make it a point to stay in the Luxor.

After 13 companies and never making money in MLM, I was about ready
to give up on the industry. I thought I was done. Finally, I found a
great mentor and friend who taught me how to harness my focus
and power in MLM and I started to make money.

In 2010, I returned to Las Vegas and stayed at the luxor.

However, now, I had thousands of people in my organization and
was a six figure income earner in MLM.

I attended a Network Marketing seminar called “No Excuses” at
the Bellagio Hotel.

Prior to “No Excuses”, I hadn’t really done that much marketing
over the internet. I discovered a whole new world at that summit.
That’s actually where I truly started gaining an interest about
online marketing, social media, etc..

I remember sitting in my room here at the Luxor
contemplating about how I was gonna start using that knowledge
to explode my business even more.

The next year, I attended No Excuses 2. Only thing was, I was
now making even MORE money and had an even bigger group.
Infact, I surprised myself at the level of income I was able
to generate online…even without my MLM.

Things were moving sooo fast in my career and I started feeling
a little uncertainty about where I was in my company at the
time.

I was staying at the Palms during that trip.

I jumped in a cab one night and headed over to the Luxor
again for some reason. I didn’t know why at the time.
I remember thinking to myself, “So what’s next? Where’s
the next move?” I was shocked I was even thinking that
because to most people I was doing fine in my career,
But throughout my life, I’ve had a gift of gut intuition.

Whenever I start having that gut feeling like big change
is about ready to strike, I start feeling that familiar feeling.

I didn’t even need to walk inside the Luxor. I just stood
outside looking at the Luxor Pyramid on that warm summer
night and then I knew it. Something was gonna happen.

Well, something did.

I ended up ending my journey with that company and
headed over to my new company. It was a gut wrenching
experience and it was tough emotional transition.

I hit the rank of Ambassador, which is the top rank in
this company, in just 2 months.

I walked away from a pretty hefty monthly income
and walked into Visalus without taking any MONEY,
any VOLUME..nothing!! zilch!

I signed an application and made my first contact
just like everyone else.

I then felt like the whole world was watching me at
that point.

A lot of leaders talk a lot of talk from stages about how
to build your MLM. A lot of stuff is said from company
leaders.

Granted, it’s all good stuff.

But, the question is.. Do they really believe it themselves?

Could they really build from the trenches again??
Could they really build from scratch and attain the
same level of success…or higher??

I was one of those people that trained a whole bunch from
stage, webinars, phones, etc..

The spotlight was now on ME.

It was on!

Since I’ve joined, I’ve never NOT been at #1 in every single
rank that I hit. Obviously it’s not luck. A lot of preparation
has been made to get to this point in my career.

I’m now packing up and heading over to Atlanta Georgia
where I will be presented with my Ambassador Jacket
and Bonus Check of $25,000.

I writing this whole thing while I watch the beautiful desert
sunrise from my hotel room here at the, you guessed it,
Luxor Hotel.

I write this because my heart is heavy of gratitude.

My message today is more about realizing that you need
to have certain bench marks in life that you are able to
look back at and realize how far you’ve come.

I look back at that broke 22 year old kid who didn’t even
have a job at the time, walking around in the lobby downstairs
in 2002.

The Luxor is ONE of my many “reference points” in my career
in Network Marketing. I have many more.

As that old saying goes, “How will you know when you get
there if you don’t even know where you at NOW?”

Create a reference point in your life. Say to yourself
“I will know I’m on track with my life when I am making
X amount of dollars” or “one of my mile markers on my
journey to success will be when I stay in ___ hotel by
this date.”

That’s my message today my friends.

Remember, KILL IT in your business. KILL IT in your LIFE.

KILL the excuses. KILL excuses not to succeed.

Another one of those things??!

Job Jumpers vs. Brand Promoters.

It seems like everytime a network marketer gets hit with this
question (or comment), they stop dead in their tracks.

If anyone asks me, are you doing another MLM…

I simply ask them if they are doing another JOB.

If they have had more than 1 job, I’d like to know if they
are tired of falling for the pyramid scheme that they
are in.

Tired of that 40/40/40 plan?!

What Matters Most (Being Duplicate-ABLE)

As an online marketer, sometimes I find it difficult to stay focused on what is
duplicate-able. You see, running a full page ad in some high traffic
magazine definitely works..

However, every person who comes in off that ad will most likely think that
they too need to run full page ads, OR any other marketing tactic
just like they saw you do.

Sure, at first they will agree with you when you say to run challenge
parties, but what do you think they will do when business slows down and
they feel like they aren’t getting any results??

What do you think they’ll be thinking when they aren’t recruiting anyone
using the tactics that YOU suggested they use??

Especially when they didn’t get recruited that way themselves?!

It’s a scary thing trying to balance what works with what is duplicate-able.
Notice I didn’t say duplicat-ed.

Because not EVERY ONE will duplicate what you do.
Some people will think that they are above the system.
Like they are “above the law” somehow because they can “sell ice to eskimoes”.

So, not everyone will DO what you DO. That isn’t the issue.

The issue is to let everyone see that THEY ARE ABLE to do what you do.

That’s the reason why you want to become duplicate-ABLE.

Get out there and KILL IT IN YOUR NETWORK MARKETING BUSINESS!!

How To Create Excitement Out Of Thin Air…

Here is a video that I rolled out to my Visalus team that I’ll share with
you (my loyal readers) to show you an example of how to create excitement
amongst your organization out of thin air.

There are a few components..

You need to “Rally The Troops”.
You need to help your team feel like they are ALL engaged in a cause.
You need to lead the charge from the front.
You need to think out of the box and address the field (those who are working)
You need to RALLY with your group, NOT RALLY at them.
