Is networking truly helping you?

If you have ever been in a business or search for employment, you have heard the word "networking" thrown around as being an important part of your business development and job search. You are encouraged to attend networking events and polish off formulate your "elevator speech" to fire it at any human being within a 3 arms length away from you. The goal is to meet new people you hope are looking for your skills (for a job) or looking to do business with you.

What type of results do you think you will achieve with these events? What is your mental focus when you attend these events...just to place your business card in people's hands or to truly make an authentic connection that lasts? Do you think the other attendees have the same wants and needs that you do? These are just some of the questions you should ask before even attending to have a better mindset when you do participate in it.

I recently started reading the book, Networking is Not Working by Derek Coburn which give a completely different perspective on networking in general. I learned that our mindset and intention when going to networking event is extremely vital to the efficiency of networking results. Mr. Coburn also expressed that cultivating value for your current and developing business network is far important than collecting hundreds of business cards arbitrarily. In order for you to create value for anyone, you will have to understand what is valuable to people and speak to their values. Do your best to find ways to become more valuable to them.

So how do you accomplish this? Asking key questions and truly listening to their response. In their response, you can truly uncover what people find valuable. It sounds simple, but you would be surprised by how many people do not actually do this....especially at a networking event! You are likely to hear their rehearsed "elevator speech" than someone that truly takes an interest by listening. Let's do a better job as professional networkers and LISTEN MORE.

It’s not fair!! Why do business owners have to pay so much for their independence?

Sometimes you wonder how business owners make it through the challenges of running their enterprises…in some cases…pure perseverance! No one said it was easy but gaining and maintaining your independence sure it worth it.

Let’s not get started on all the expenses it takes to keep the business running such as direct mail marketing, client/customer retention programs, credit card processing, branding online & offline presence efficiently, business reputation, refunds and exchanges, overhead costs, turnover rate for employees and the list goes on.

With all of that going on, no wonder business owners never sleep! Having watched countless family and friends go through this juggling makes me tired.. Whew! I have offered my helping hand on occasion only to have them push me out of the way because I lack their expertise necessary to get the job done.

Why I decided to be part of this great industry

By Mentor Shelly

I am humbled and inspired all at the same time. I actually teared up watch her pour out her heart to this audience. I am among the most positive, energizing dreamers that I have had the pleasure to encounter and I love it! I am reminded of why I became a network marketer and why the struggle is worth it.

Unfortunately, some people are so clouded by their misconceptions and negativity, they forget every cloud has a silver lining. For every bad attitude you encounter, there is a smile and a pleasant person around the next corner...know it is only momentary.

You only find what you are looking for in life....If you look for negativity, you will always find it. If you are praying for a chance to truly revitalize your life, this information may help to answer some of those questions.

I want you to have the pleasure of listening to "WHY" she decided to become a network marketer.

If this story encouraged you or gave you better insight on the industry and the caliber of people that it produces...I invite you to truly make a decision to be open for a chance of a lifetime!

One Size does NOT fit all..

People that have not had the battle of the bulge, so to speak...doesn't understand that sometimes....the status quo of "eat less" and "exercise more" does not actually work for everybody! I'm afraid to break it to is not that simple. From personal experience, I have learned that you have to pay attention to how your body responds in various conditions and work with a physician that understands your journey.

We are all uniquely created with our own set of DNA, hormone & bodily functions, so why are we trying to use a "one-size fits all" method to fat loss & gaining better health? I don't know if some of the crazy and unorthodox things I have tried will work for you but its worth a shot.  Keep in mind, if you are serious about improving your health...know that hard work and better choice are also required to succeed.

As humans beings living on planet earth...we are truly creatures of habit. If we develop a habit over time, good or bad, it become rather difficult to change. Sometimes life has a way of dropping circumstances beyond our control right i our laps. Those circumstances can either make or break us...depending on how we decide to deal with it.

It has been said...we are TODAY the sum total of all the decisions we have made up to this point in our lives. Let's be honest...are you happy with your current state of affairs or could we do something or make better decisions or take precise actions to change? CHANGE is a "negative" 6-letter word for some people because it requires them to GET OUT of their comfort zone. For others CHANGE is a word they live by.

A great philosopher of our time, Mr. Jim Rohn said, "Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better". We can all learn so much from this quote to speak may facets of our lives. He was such an inspiring man...his words resonates the great ability he had to motivate so many people to become better. His electrifying story motivated many to explore and get involved in the network marketing industry. He inspires millions of people to obtain the productive mindset to enter an industry where the chance to enter was the same of everyone. Unfortunately, most industries are not like that.

If you ever considered getting involved into network marketing, you can find opposing viewpoints online or off-line. To obtain a more comprehensive perspective on the industry, you can click on some of the resources below that I have personally used to gain a better business perspective. ​ 

I challenge all of you today, just as I challenge myself...if and when you make decisions to better your life or explore a new industry, please make an intellectually sound one. ​

Getting healthier....daily...

Well, the journey to better health has been part of my life for a very long time. I have succeeded and failed many times but obtaining and maintaining better health is worth its weight in gold. My first success with achieving better health was achieved way back in 2005 when I lost 100 pounds...whoo hoo...but wait.... Life has a way of testing who we truly are as human beings at the most inconvenient times...I also lost my mother to cancer that year. I would be lying if I said that my health journey didn't take a nosedive after that happened. Needless to say, I am determined, with God's help to continue working towards goal to achieve better health. I am making small strides but with a little help from my friends like....

Kale, Apples, Cucumbers, Protein powder & Almond milk

Along with....regular exercise & strength training

I will continue on this journey not to please anyone but to achieve the best health I possibly can. I have already seen results. Some of my smaller clothes are starting to fit better....Whoo hoo! I am not torturing myself with anymore weight scales...they are just plain deceptive!
