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

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.

The ONLY Thing You Get Paid For In Business

What TRULY pays you in business?

If you really think about what really makes you money in this
business, you’d probably be surprised at what you are wasting
your time on—or even NOT spending enough time on.

What do you get paid for in MLM?

• Dropping off brochures to your prospects workplace?
• Making cool little prospecting packages?
• Making blog posts?
• Facebook wall posts?
• Creating cool YouTube videos with great intros?
• Setting up cool product displays in your house?
• Going to trade shows?
• On and on and on, you get the point…

The shocking thing is that you don’t get paid to do any
of these things above. Here’s a shocker…You don’t even
get paid to prospect!!

Prospecting leads to more information…that’s it.

The only thing you get paid to do in this business is…


Oh, I can just hear it: “But Elias, we don’t sell anything!”
…get over it.
Yes you do.
You 1st MARKET, then you end with the SALE.

If there is anything you really need to get good at in
this industry, it’s helping people make a decision.

Over the coming days in future posts and videos, I’ll be
discussing some seriously eye-opening tactics on how to
get people to make a quick, positive decision to move
forward with your information.

The HARD truth about recruiting big numbers

The hardest thing about recruiting big numbers in MLM is the fact that
you need to be really thick skinned at the core.

Recruiting 5-10 people a week isn’t normal. Infact, the average
Network Marketer only recruits 2.5 people in their career in MLM.

If you want to recruit big numbers, you need to take yourself out
of that equation.

Here’s what I mean by that:

If the average Network Marketer is only recruiting 2-3 people into
their program, In order to multiply those efforts you need to
use more leverage.

Step into my brain for a second..

Why am I gonna spend 45 minutes on the phone with a prospect when
I could spend those same 45 minutes on the phone with 500 prospects?!

You gotta be crazy!!

You need to MEGA MULTIPLY your efforts.

There’s no way I would be able to build a $100K/yr. business
in this industry if I were meeting EVERY SINGLE person at
starbucks to show them some silly presentation!

I’m simultaneously using sizzle calls, drop cards, mail outs,
websites, email templates, auto responders, webinars, video marketing,
voice shot blasts, major events, text blasts, facebook webinars, etc…

the list goes on and on and on my friends.

If you truly want to recruit like someone who absolutely KILLS IT
in Network Marketing, you need to start using TOOLS..right away.

Why Pinterest Should Be Your Best Friend

Ok, so this was a long overdue blog post. I’ve been spying on Pinterest
for the last few months now. Pinterest didn’t really catch my interest
because I didn’t really see a lot of value in it at first.

When I started seeing Pinterest links, social “follow me on Pinterest”,
and “pin this” buttons on numerous blogs, I realized that it was about
time that I paid some attention to it.

You know how the old saying goes, “there is power in numbers”.

Unless there were a ridiculously enormous amount of people on Pinterest
as there is right now, there wouldn’t be a lot of value in it.
However, once again, Where there are groups of people, there is power.

And as a Network Marketer, you know we absolutely LOVE the groups
of folks. New prospects.

Lets start off with a few basics…

What exactly is Pinterest?
Answer: you want to think of Pinterest like your very own personal
“cork board wall”. Whatever you come across on the internet, much
like a magazine or a newspaper, you would cut out an article or image
and pin it up on that corkboard.

How does Pinterest go Viral?
Answer: Well, just like that cork board wall, when you collect picture,
articles, etc.. you have friends that will see your content appear
on their facebook feed, twitter feed, email, etc… and they
will “like” or “re pin” your content.

When someone else repins your content, they now become a “follower” of
your Pinterest Wall and their contact, friends, etc.. will now somehow
connect with you with everyone else.

Let’s start off with the basics:

1) Your Profile

Your personal profile section will be your introduction to everyone that visits your profile page.
This lets everyone know that you are indeed a real person and that you actually
have a personality. Mention your name, what you do, what you find cool, what you love to
search on the internet, something light, upbeat, etc..
[Main point is to not get too radically serious]

2) Creating Your Pinterest “Boards”

Just as soon as you open your account, you want to start creating “boards” like crazy!
Divide your boards up into different categories (here’s mine below).
Everything from personal development to shoes, to jewelry, etc..
the sky is the limit here. Once again, keep it light.

This is where you want to get a bunch of categories up and running to get more
people to identify with you. If I only have a “Self Help” board and “My MLM Is
Better Than Yours And This Is Why” Board that really narrows the likelihood
of a ton of people identifying with you.

For example, my MLM company (visalus) gives out BMW’s and that’s our marketing
tool to reach out to more prospects. So of course, guess what type of corkboard
I’m gonna have in order to find people who love BMW’s now???

Right!! I’m gonna create a BMW board! You see how this is going?!
If you are marketing a weight loss product and you are seriously
wanting to tap into the groups of people that desire to get into
shape, guess what kind of board you need to make?!

Right! A board that has to do with weight loss and fitness.

3) How you “follow” people.

Whenever you go to someones wall either from the Pinterest
“search function” or just randomly browsing (how everyone
does like Faccebook or Twitter) and you “repin” their
content, you automatically become a “follower” of
theirs on Pinterest and you automatically start
syndicating their content.

Now, that isn’t 100% confirmed at this point but since
there is NO absolute answer on that online but it seems
like it certainly is pointing that direction.

I’m continuing my observation on this matter so stay

3) Getting a Pinterest Following.

The easiest way to get a pinterest following is to get a
Pinterest logo on your blog along with the “pin this” logo
on your blog.

If you have an email list, you could blast it out to your

Blast it out to all your facebook friends!

Just simply tell people to follow you on Pinterest and
watch what you pin over the next day or two!

3) Keep your audience (followers) on their feet.
Try not to stay “in the box” about business ALL THE TIME. I pin shoes, watches,
cool new tech gadgets, fashion, dream destinations, etc.. just to
keep my followers engaged.

Some people think they are doing their audience a favor by strictly
talking about only business. This goes for Facebook too!
Little do they know, it gets redundant and predictable and sooner
than later, your followers will see NO value in going to your
wall to see whats new.


Pinterest is a powerful, new, fresh way to get more prospects, get your
content syndicated by tons of people.

All you need to do is get an account and figure out how to do it right.

Happy Pinning!

The Whiteboard That Makes Networkers Money

One of the worse mistakes any serious network marketer can make,
is drawing out an action plan that you can’t take on the
road with you.

Bad move.

Here’s a powerful tool that I’ve been using for a while.

Watch this video below —->>

I am a thief!! ..sort of.

I direct high amounts of traffic to my websites. The crazy thing about it is that most of the traffic comes from my competition. I almost feel bad…a little.

How can you do the same?

Well, it all starts with having a blog that is already linked to a steady source of traffic. Not going into detail on that one, but here’s what I suggest if you don’t know jack squat about blog marketing and setting up your own blog I recommend using a service like “Empower Network”.

  • You don’t need to know diddly squat about setting up hosting
  • You don’t need to know how to drive up your results in the search engine
  • You don’t need to hire a web designer.
  • You don’t need to waste any time trying to sign up for stupid affiliate links so that you can monetize your blog.
  • You don’t need to WAIT to be considered an “established” blog to get favored by the search engines.
  • You don’t need to spend a fortune on upkeep or web maintenance.
  • Your prospects enter your funnel automatically.

And then you need to funnel them through a “funded proposal” funnel.

Then, have a proven upline leadership in your MLM company that can help you “close” those
prospects that you have on the other end of the funnel.

Are you serious?? …Is it that easy??

Watch this

It doesn’t matter if you are in Asantae, OrganoGold, or Visalus here in Hawaii. If you don’t have a
proven system, you will end up losing your shorts my friend.

No matter how good your product.
No matter how cool your company.
No matter how great your comp plan.

If you have a funnel that is worthless (or even worse, no funnel at all) then you are seriously
losing a lot of money…to people like me.

I don’t think you want that happening. Watch the video.
