Your MLM business is a powerful vehicle for changing your life and the lives of people your business will touch. Multi-level marketing is more than just a good idea; it’s a proven and powerful business model that can allow you to live your dreams.

As we wrap up the year, it’s a perfect time to tune into what your dreams are – your real dreams, what you want in your heart of hearts.  As children, we allow ourselves to dream without limit, of what we’d like to ‘be’, how we’d like to live, what our ideal lives will look like.

As we get older and join ‘the real adult world’ we’re told that dreamers are impractical – they have their heads in the clouds and they’re often told to buckle down and get responsible – as if having exactly what you want isn’t responsible…

The best way to show up in the world is exactly the way you dream of being. Do you long for time freedom? Financial freedom? Do you want to give to your community or the causes that are important to you? Would helping others make you feel great? Do you dream of travel? Material possessions and comfort? Your MLM business can make all those things possible and make your dreams come true.

We’re asking you to dream – to dream about what you want your life to look like.  Your first assignment is to take some time – undisturbed – and allow yourself to think about just what you do if you could call ALL your own shots.  Then take the time to write it down and acknowledge all that you want in your life. This is just for you – don’t hold back, write freely, dream freely.

Why is this so important?  What does it have to do with the practicalities of starting a business?  The more deeply you are attached to what you truly want in life and the more quickly you come to understand that you can have it. As you dream, your subconscious mind accepts your dreams as reality.

Years of study has proven that people who know what they want are more likely to get it.  We already know that you can achieve ANY level of financial success you desire with your MLM business.  The business model is proven.  Now we bring your dream, your vision to the table to make what you want from life a reality.

Most successful people (start asking people at company events if they’ve done this) create a vision board. It’s fun, doesn’t take long and works to train you subconscious mind – programming you for success. Your second assignment is to read over your dream list.

Next, take a stack of magazines and cut out pictures that represent things you want to do, be or have. Arrange them, paste them on a piece of cardboard and put it somewhere you’ll see it every single day.

What comes into your life from taking this one simple step might just shock you. If you don’t believe it, how about doing it anyway, just to prove me wrong? I encourage you to make this a must do experience for you and anyone on your team who’s willing. If you live near each other, make it a fun Saturday afternoon. It’s life changing and simple. And, here’s to your amazingly successful 2017!

The ultimate purpose of knowing your numbers is to know how to make money from your comp plan, set goals and create a plan to reach them.  Say you have a goal of generating $5 thousand per month in income.  Start by figuring out exactly how to earn $500 each month, then $1000 each month and find out exactly what it takes you to achieve the goal. You then have a formula you can build on.

Most comp plans have two elements – money you generate from customers and money you generate from recruiting business builders. To make long-term income and almost always, to make bigger income, you need to build a team.  A team offers you leverage and leverage is one of the biggest reasons to be involved in a multi-level marketing business.

Leverage allows you to get paid a percentage on the efforts of many people, as opposed to getting paid for just your own efforts.  Obviously, to get paid on the efforts of others, you need to build a team.  We love to quote John Paul Getty, who was the richest man in his time who famously said: “I’d rather have one percent of the effort of 100 people than 100 percent of my own”.  That’s what you’re going for.

To get there, you need a roadmap or a blueprint and that’s what your number give you.  You begin with the financial goal and then back out your numbers from that goal.  Choose an amount – a reasonable amount per month, not your ultimate goal.  If you’re seasoned and earning a check, choose a financial goal that’s more than you’re earning currently.

Now, you need to know exactly how many people on your team will bring in the desired revenue.  If you don’t know how to figure that out, find someone in your company that understands the comp plan and ask them this: If I want to generate $1000 month in income, how many people do I need to recruit and how many people total do I need on my team?  Every comp plan works differently, but these two factors will play in every time.

Once you know those numbers – let’s say you need to recruit 10 people and they each need to recruit three.  (I’m making this up to demonstrate how you back into activity from your goal number.)

Here’s where your numbers become relevant.  Do you know how many people you have to talk to in order to recruit 10 people?  You must know this.  In order to discover your numbers, you track everything you do. Talk to 100 prospects – it’ll give you a good working sense of your numbers.

From those 100 people that agree to review your information, how many actually look?  How many say no? How many say maybe? How many become product users but not business partners?  How many become business partners?

The business partner number is the one we’re after here.  Say you recruit 10 people out of the hundred you talk to.  Then you know you need to talk to 100 people to recruit ten.  You also know that you’re on track to achieve you goal.  You should also know that if you need 10 people who each need to get three to reach your original goal, you probably need to recruit 20 to get 10 will get the job done.

It’s the way our business model works and the more quickly you accept that and act on it the more quickly you’ll build a big paycheck.  Your job isn’t to recruit and then hope people build a business.  Your job is to recruit until you get the people who DO exactly what is needed.

The old adage: there’s no problem in MLM that can’t be fixed by recruiting is flat out true.  Love it or hate it, it’s how it works. And it works if you do.  Go out and learn your numbers, build your business plan around them and start making serious income in your MLM business.

The biggest battle in our lives often goes on between our ears. It’s how human beings are put together. We think, we worry, we doubt ourselves and we experience fear. Those are all normal human emotions – everyone experiences them. You’ve probably heard it said that the people who achieve what they want in life learn to feel the fear and do it anyway.

They believe in themselves and their ideas enough to stick it out – whatever ‘it’ is. There are times when that determination or confidence is borne of need and other times when it’s just a genuine desire to accomplish something. Truth is, it doesn’t matter where the motivation comes from, it just matters that you get it – somehow, from somewhere and you use it.

Sometimes you believe more in an idea than you do in yourself, sometimes it’s the other way around, but as you persist, the balance shifts and your confidence grows. Some people have the good fortune of learning how to manage their emotions early on in life – they have parents or teachers, or someone along the way that understood some of these concepts and shared them with you. Others will have come across these ideas later in life. It doesn’t matter when you ‘get into’ these ideas and concepts, it matters when ‘they get into you’.

You’ve probably heard the expression when the student is ready, the teacher appears. That’s so often true. Success principles have been around a long time and sometimes you can be a student of these ideas and then suddenly one day it all makes sense; it all falls into place. As much as anything, it’s a question of being ready. That’s why it’s important to just keep at it, keep working, keep building, keep learning and keep your focus. Your efforts will bear fruit if you persist.

Understand too, that persistence is a learned skill. Sticking with something because you’ve committed to it, because you believe in it is a worthwhile skill to develop. Quitting is often easier than staying than staying course. All of us, at some point, doubt our abilities, wonder what makes the successful people get where they are and wonder if we’ve got what it takes. That’s OK – don’t doubt yourself for thinking those things on occasion – everyone does.

I want to suggest to you that you commit to yourself, to improving yourself. There are so many great success books and if you choose one – just one – and read it for 10 minutes every day – preferably when you first wake up or before you go to sleep, you will absorb the information and it will become part of you. If you do this for 21 days in a row, you will develop the habit. And, this one habit can change everything for you, forever.

You’ll start to think differently. You’ll question your common reactions, and replace them with positive actions. You’ll build confidence that others will sense and feel. If you stick to it for 42 days, you’ll become a more successful person, without fail.

Consider starting with Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich. It’s easy to read and it’s great for changing your viewpoint, subtly, and permanently. If you want to improve your business, improve your thinking.

We all look forward to the holiday season, to spending time with family and friends, nice meals, gifts, excited kids – people are a little more laid back.

How does that impact your business? However you let it!  Here’s the deal.  Building a successful MLM business is all about one thing: continuously filling your ‘pipeline’ with prospects until you grow a team big enough to suit your financial needs. Have you heard it said there is no problem in MLM that can’t be solved by recruiting?  It’s true.

And, while people don’t necessarily make decisions in December, they make RESOLUTOINS in January, so setting prospects up with information in December is ideal.

Here’s the way to handle your holiday season prospecting – fill your pipeline so you land a lot of business when the new year rolls around and people are thinking about how they’ll make 2017 better than 2016. In January, we think about change. Thinking about change is GREAT for your business. It’s time to make new plans.  Time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work.

Plus, people have racked up debt over the holidays and along with the credit card bills comes thoughts like “I don’t want to be in this situation next December, how am I going to change it?”

What does that mean for you?  It means that if you’ve planted a lot of seeds during December, you can harvest the results of your efforts in the new year.  The more people you put in your pipeline during December, the more opportunity you have for those people to say yes and become business partners in January.

Don’t use the “everyone’s busy” excuse (even your own busy-ness). Or, I’ll talk to them in the new year. No. Talk to them now. That way when they start thinking about resolutions, and new ideas, they’ll have a big new idea already in mind.

Make it your goal to talk to as many people as you possibly can. Go on a two-week prospecting marathon. Make twice as many calls. Load your pipeline. Go for the numbers and you’ll have more prospects than you know what to do with.

I’ve always liked the “measured push” approach where you challenged yourself to go full out for a certain period of time. It’s manageable, it has an end point and it gets results. And, if you can get your team members to do the same – WATCH OUT – you’ll all have a killer 2017.

Just do it. Don’t procrastinate. Don’t look for excuses. Everyone’s busy. You’re busy. But, if you want to set yourself up for success, just make the push. You’ll be thanking me. You will. Really!
