Our biggest fear in branding ourselves is the question: If people KNOW me, will they LIKE and TRUST me?

Maybe our problem is that we do KNOW ourselves and we know that sometimes we aren’t very likable.

Welcome to the human race!

This is one of the best reasons for branding yourself. You get to work on who you are.

You will get to KNOW yourself! And I promise. You will get to LIKE yourself. And as you do this before the whole world (oh so scary, I know) they will be able to TRUST you.

And when they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you, you will be far more productive for your company than any SpamBot.

Do We Need More “Yes Men?

Our decision to join a network marketing business was a daring decision.

We were aware of what many people think about our profession. In fact, many of us still harbored some of that mindset when we joined.

And even though we knew what others thought, we joined.

That takes courage and strength. But most likely we have exhausted our reserve of courageous strength after calling a few of our family and friends who turn out to be no-men.

So, we need to hang out with more yes-men.

Freedom Lies in Being Bold!

Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward. Drew Houston
No one is perfect. Those who succeed understand that and forgive themselves for their imperfections and “go ever upward.”

How do we do that?

Making calls to your best friend and the person on the top of your “chicken list.”

Doing a Facebook Live.

Going to the front of the room and doing a presentation.

Creating a business/fan page on Facebook.

How do we do those things? By doing them! We won’t be perfect – ever. And it’s okay. Plenty of imperfect people have become huge successes.

So can you. Get in your balloon and release the tether that holds you to the ground.

How to Effortlessly Attract More Prospects

He sat dead tired at the bar.
The last thing he wanted to do was to strike up conversations with strangers after a long day.

As he was sitting there, a guy started talking to him.

Jay thought to himself…

“Oh man, I don’t know if I can muster up the energy to carry on a conversation.”

So he just asked the guy a question…

“What do you do for a living?”

And then he just shut up and listened, genuinely interested in what the guy had to say.

He didn’t talk about himself at all.

When the guy finished answering, Jay would just ask another question.

And the guy would go on for another ten minutes.

After 45 minutes, Jay finally said…

“You know, I need to head up to my room and get some sleep, because I have another full day tomorrow.”

The guy said…

“I have met a lot of people in my travels, but you are one of the most interesting people I have ever met.”

The Seven Principles of Ethical Persuasion

. . . while humans have sophisticated hardware between our ears (especially in comparison to a turkey), we also have a number of innate psychological triggers that profoundly influence our thinking and well-being.

…often without our knowledge or consent!

Which, in many instances, is a wonderful thing (like in the case of humor).

And let’s be honest…

People often need a firm nudge to act in their own best self-interest.
Think diet and exercise, for instance.

The Four Crucial Mindsets Vital for Success

I am the only person with the unique experiences, knowledge, and understanding that I possess in the World!

There is no one else like me!

I am exactly what my team need.

I am exactly what my family and friends need although my business may not be.

My mistakes and weaknesses are part of the package. My team needs to see me exactly as I am – warts and all.

There is such freedom in those statements don’t you think. It gives us permission to publicly fail. That is vital since we will fail. It is even more vital for our team to see us fail because they will also experience failure.

What is important is that they see us keep going; as they see us learn from our mistakes.

Why You Must Drown Out All the Noise Online and Develop this One Critical Skill

As you’ve probably experienced firsthand, being a business owner is about so much more than the initial excitement and knowing all the ins-and-outs of your product.

That’s where you start, sure.

Because let’s face it, when you’re inevitably doing a meeting where no one is showing up, it’s easy to get discouraged and wind up in a negative headspace where you want to throw your hands up and quit.

That’s why your personal mindset is paramount.

Why Home & Hotel Meetings Are Obsolete in Today’s Network Marketing World

To put it bluntly…

It doesn’t matter if people are still successfully building their network marketing businesses using tired, old strategies like home parties and hotel meetings.

That simply isn’t a valid objection to online recruiting & building methods.

I’ll explain why in a moment…

And look, I’m not here to knock these old strategies or be unnecessarily critical; I’m just making a rational argument for moving into the future (…and by future, I honestly mean the PRESENT).

Today, I’m going to
