Why So Many Setbacks?

This week I want to share with you about what to do

when life gives you constant setbacks. 

You obviously know how important knowledge is. But acknowledging it is not the same as benefiting from it. Setbacks happen to us all, yet only persistence allows us to go on to victory. Vision is what allows persistence to keep being so. And vision is enabled by knowledge. There are many who don’t need the push to form weekly habits to increase their knowledge, read or listen to personal development. Yet others need it. I know I did.

.

For four years, I was pushed by my mentors to learn every day and see how people who had achieved great things thought and compare it to my own and see how I might learn from it. 

I know many of you will acknowledge that this is a good thing to do but in actuality, many won’t do it because it doesn’t fit their lifestyle or their way of life. And this will cause many to live an unfulfilled life. And I will be so bold to say that without developing our minds, success will evade us – especially success in all its respects.

.

It was because of the continual time learning from these great people that I was able to deal with constant setbacks for years.  Because of these strategies I learned, I was able to put a fire under my dream. I was able to give my dreams the correct ingredients to help it to grow instead of allowing the negative pressures tear them down. And it will do the same for you. When you realize that your dream is not yet coming true, one day you will stumble on the phrase: “Success is not to be pursued, it is to be attracted by the person you become. Jim Rohn.

.

So if you find yourself needing help, perhaps wishing to be on a team that encourages you to learn and grow, then simply email Elizabeta or myself with the subject title: “share with me more” and let us know you want to know more about joining us.

Core Ingredients to fulfill Your Dreams

So I’m curious what your thoughts are on the total well being
of your Body, Soul and Spirit? 

You know, each day I go for a couple walks to get the exercise I need and also

to see the sunshine and something beautiful in nature

as I walk through the park during sunset. I like to talk to God

also during this time and remember the things in life that really matter

– such as love, family and doing what is right. 

At different points of my life, I’ve been guilty of completely 

ignoring these three core elements in my life. Maybe you have also? 


It took me years to realize I needed to give them the attention they deserve

and focus on them in actual practical daily practice.

These three areas can be realized as this:

The Body: Eating right and exercise,

Soul: Taking care of your intellect, emotions and will,

Spirit: Taking care of your heart (the deepest part of you, the eternal).

Some people only focus on one. But balance is the key.


They are all important and each part you strengthen, strengthens the others. 

Achieving your dreams is all part of challenging your intellect, emotions and will. 

The key is to not let your ambition destroy the balance and overrule

your spirit and your heart.

Want to join our team and work together on achieving our dreams together?

 

Simply email us at [email protected] with the subject: “show me more” and I will.

Self Discipline or Regret

“Self Discipline or Regret”

This week I want to share with you about self discipline or the regret. 

I came upon this quote by Jim Rohn: “We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.” Another quote he said puts things in balance: “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.

.

Here’s my take on it all: I’m actually very self disciplined. If I want something bad enough, I go after it 100% and don’t give up until I figure out how to accomplish getting it. Maybe you can relate? However, its harder for me to balance my lifestyle out (while I’m so driven) so that I can “enjoy the ride”. I tend to work more than I should and it’s harder for me to “kick” myself out of my office and get up and do something like exercise or just relax and have fun. The thing is, if I don’t, then I end up getting a sour attitude because I’m not enjoying my life. So I really appreciate Jim Rohns wisdom here to help me balance out my life and my expectations. Some goals can take years to achieve (like becoming successful earning online), so making sure you feel happy in the meantime is really important!

.

On the other hand, if you have a hard time being self disciplined, you can end up on the other side of the spectrum and not get anywhere with your dreams and get stuck in a rut, wondering to yourself when things will ever get better for you. The thing is, if you don’t work at it, nothing will happen. You may be generally happy with your life but at the same time unhappy that things are not changing. On top of this, the pain of regret is much heavier than the pain of self discipline. Better to get things in order so you won’t look back and say you didn’t give your dreams your all. That’s why these quotes really hit home for me. You know, you can’t gain the rewards of being self disciplined while you’re being lazy (lol). And on the other side of the equation, you will burn yourself out if you don’t relax a little and enjoy what you have.
.

So now it’s time to think about what will you risk to achieve your dreams? The thing is, you don’t have to search everywhere to figure out the formula like Elizabeta and I did.

A mentor is the ONLY reason Elizabeta and I were able to pull out of being in a rut advertising for years without much to show for it. A mentor is the only reason I was able to figure out the five critical skills. It was the difference between success and failure online for us. And it will be for you too.  Want to know more about it? Go here

Don’t forget everything of real value takes time to build! Be patient with yourself. 🙂

How to Make Big Money NOT Selling Products

Okay, obviously you are selling products… but then again, you’re not.

You’ve never woken up wanting 12-video course and neither have your customers.

But plenty of people wake up wanting to finally solve their problem that day. They want a solution they can believe in. They want one that makes sense to them and isn’t pie-in-the-sky bullsh**.

And here’s the twist: The solution your customers want isn’t always what you think it is.

Do you think your overweight customer wants to lose weight?

Nope. What she wants is for her clothes to fit, to not get winded walking up the stairs and for her husband to look at her like he used to when they were dating.

Do you think your financially challenged customer wants to make money?

Nope. He wants to stop waking up in a cold sweat at 3am because he has no idea how he’s going to pay the mortgage or how he’s ever going to be able to retire.

Do you think your kid-client wants to learn martial arts?

Nope. He wants to be able to walk onto the school yard without fear of being bullied, and he wants his friends to look up to him, too.

Most marketers who think they’re in the business of selling products can’t figure out why their sales are lousy.

Quick Story: Ten marketers are all competing to sell their ‘Make Money FAST and EASY’ products.

9 of them talk about the money. Mansions. Fancy cars. Super model girlfriends or boyfriends. Living life on a beach with room service or owning a yacht. You know… the kind of stuff 99% of people can’t even relate to.

One of them talks about enjoying life – a normal life of owning a home, staying home with the kids and never going into the office again. He talks about working less and living life on your own terms.

9 of these marketers are doing churn and burn marketing because their products don’t turn people into millionaires overnight like they say they do.

1 of these marketers is making an awesome living without stress. He doesn’t have to worry about customers complaining that they didn’t get to buy the yacht after one week because he never makes promises like that.

He gives them the solutions they seek, and he does it in a realistic way that they can believe will work for them.

Sell a solution that makes sense to your customers using their own reasons for buying it and your sales will go through the roof.

7 Marketing Trends for 2021

The new Global Marketing Trends 2021 report from Deloitte Insights provides us with clues for what is heading our way in marketing.

Despite pandemic overload, consumers have a positive perspective on how brands are responding to the current environment, providing for positive experiences and even increased brand loyalty.

The top 7 trends are pointing to a need to lose the façade we often present to customers and instead be authentic while holistically meeting their needs.

1: Purpose

Why does your business exist and who are you serving? If you know this, being authentic comes easy.

2: Agility

During times of change – such as during a pandemic – imagination and innovation are key.

3: Real Connections

Authentic human to human connections are more important than almost anything. Consumers will pay far more for the product with the heart-warming story or the ethically designed supply chain.

4: Trust

This one never goes out of style. Try shifting your focus from demographics to values. Make a promise you can deliver and then deliver on that promise.

5: Customer Participation

Customers are now and will continue to be an active component of the sales process. They write online reviews, offer advice to other customers, join conversations on social media and even create brand relevant content. Embrace this trend because it’s not going away.

6: Fusion of Ideas and Strange Partnerships

Your business isn’t an island, or at least it shouldn’t be. Join together two different products to create a third, or even partner with non-competing businesses to offer your customers something new and relevant that they need or want. For example, a life coach could partner with a physical trainer and a dietician to completely remake a person’s life.

7: Talent Transformation

You don’t need to be an expert in most areas to gain a competitive advantage. Thanks to the gig economy as well as the ability to get help from expert freelancers all over the world, it makes more sense to focus on the big picture and let others handle the small details for you, especially if you hope to build your business to a large size in a short amount of time.

For Things to Get Better…

“Things Will Get Better?”

This week I want to share with you about how things will get better! 

So Jim Rohn has a quote that sheds a lot of light on this: “The only way it gets better for you is when you get better. Better is not something you wish, it’s something you become.” Jim Rohn

.

How do things get better? Only when we get better. You know everyone it seems, just wants things to get better naturally. They don’t want to pay the price or learn and do what it takes to get the right skills to succeed. They just want the “Done for you” program” that most likely is 90% a lie. Not that all “done for you” things online are bad. There is a lot that a program CAN do for you. The thing it CAN NOT do for you is teach you the skills you need to succeed. It also can’t teach you how to think like a millionaire and have the persistence you need to stay in the game.

.

Unfortunately, most of you, you will quit because things get too hard, or because you don’t realize that you’re mind is the most powerful tool and that success is something within your reach. Taking control of your mind is the first step. Instead many will focus on what the little they have achieved and why they can’t win. They will focus on all the reasons that are against them such as having the wrong program or it taking too much work to find the ways that do work. It’s so easy to get down in the dumps and think inside that “it’s impossible”. But this is the negative side of your mind deceiving you. 

.

I want to encourage you that it is possible! One of the most powerful things in life is patience. It allows us to keep fighting on, learning and growing until you find the light at the end of the tunnel. In reality, its just the skills you don’t know that are the key to your success. Yes, I thought it all looked impossible too but because I refused to give up, it allowed me time to find the skills from other marketers much better than myself. What gave me the ability to not give up? It was simply that my “why” was stronger than the obstacles in front of me. And you have to find this “why” inside of you. Something inside of you will not let you give up if it has to do with you achieving your dreams or in order to make things better for your family etc. You have to dig down deep to find it.

So now it’s time to think about what will you risk to achieve your dreams? The thing is, you don’t have to search everywhere to figure out the formula like Elizabeta and I did.

A mentor is the ONLY reason Elizabeta and I were able to pull out of being in a rut advertising for years without much to show for it. A mentor is the only reason I was able to figure out the five critical skills. It was the difference between success and failure online for us. And it will be for you too.  Want to know more about it? Go here

How to “Share What You Love” Online!

So let me go into the MOST effective way to share what you love with people online and get results! Have you ever heard of building your mailing list? Of course you have! So as you begin to build your list, you just need to start learning how to write effective emails to your list. And do what I do: Share what you LOVE with them! Not only that, as you gain more experience, you will learn how to transition into a topic that will help them and encourage them at the end of the email to communicate with you and help you begin to earn online! 

.

So how do you share what you love in an email? Let me get into it: 

.
I start out by thinking of something I’m interested in writing about. It could be anything. However, I love talking about sailing the most – to be honest. If a boat is in the conversation, my ears perk up like a dog that smells food! (LOL!). So I start off by introducing myself. Then I tell them that I love sailing and that I was just out sailing last weekend (for instance) and sailed through powerful wind blown waves that wanted to push me into the rocks. I write something that is true and that is interesting. Then I TRANSITION. I share with them that just as the ocean often has an “agenda” of taking me places I don’t want to go (such as the rocks!), so it’s the same with internet marketing. There are always negative things that happen to your business online. Here’s an example: new members can create problems. For instance, when I get a new member that pays and signs up but then has no interest in actually succeeding or following the training to have success. Its irritating and disheartening because I’m thinking “well this person’s not going to get anywhere! Not only that, they won’t have success and they won’t bring new people into our business and in addition, I won’t earn anything more from this member as they won’t want to buy anything else (such as advertising for instance), and they won’t bring anyone else in under them so I won’t earn the team overrides. And of course, I feel sad too because they will give up in a month or two and then have a bad experience. So you can see how my feeling of “fighting the waves” and “fighting online” are similar. I then transition again. I write something like this: 
.
“But you know, then I learned something. I learned that in sailing, you can get where you want to go by adjusting the sails and tacking (in a 90 degree angle to the wind for instance) and online, you realize that out of every ten people that sign up, only one or two will be really worth your time and to concentrate more energy on those ones. Try to help them but if they turn into “bad eggs”, leave them alone and move on. This helped me a lot!” So then I transition again to a ‘call to action‘, like this: “So now I want you to understand that life always brings struggle into the equation. If you’re wondering how I’ve managed to figure out how to have success not only at sea, but online too, just simply reply back with the subject line “tell me more” and I will send you more info.” 
.
See how I did that? That’s how I’ve managed to write about 200 emails and put them in my autoresponder over the years. But it all started by starting with one email. And I was scared to get started. I was afraid that people would unsubscribe to my list and even more scary was the thought that they would think my emails were stupid. This almost stopped me from learning. But it didn’t. I decided that it would take me a year, writing one email a day, to get any good at this. So that’s the route I took and after 30 or so emails, I started getting the hang of this…and you will too!
.
You just need a good autoresponder to get started. Here’s one of the best: http://powerspa.swalbie.com

So now it’s time to think about what will you risk to achieve your dreams? The thing is, you don’t have to search everywhere to figure out the formula like Elizabeta and I did.

Fast Tips Increase the Amount of Each Sale

Don’t Sell – Do This Instead

You’ve got a great ebook on dating for women, so you talk about how they’ll get dates with amazing guys, right?

That will work. But what will work even better is if you tell them their story – the story of how ever since they were little girls they’ve been waiting for the love of their life, their prince charming, and how your product will finally make that little girl’s dream come true.

You’ve got a great ebook on making money, so you talk about the easy money, the fast cars, the mansion they’ll buy. Sure, that will make some sales for you.

But do you know what will work even better? Telling them the story of how they’ve struggled, how they’ve always felt a little bit like a failure because they couldn’t afford the 2 weeks at baseball camp their son wanted, or the music lessons their daughter wants. Tell them the story of how their in-laws always looked down on them because they’re weren’t a good provider. Tell them the story of fearing they couldn’t make the next house payment, or of being afraid to pick up the phone for fear it’s a debt collector, or of lying awake at night wondering if their daughter’s friends would all go off to college while their daughter worked as a waitress all her life.

Offering benefits sells. Telling stories sells even better.

Increase the Amount of Each Sale

Do you sell tangible items? Or do you have a whole bunch of different information products to sell? Then pay attention – I’m going to show you how to sell 30-100% more on each sale.

This is all about human nature – we buy more of things that are limited. So if we see a sign that says, “Limit 4 per customer,” we are likely to buy more than if that limit wasn’t in place.

This also works in pricing. For example, 10 for $10 will sell more items than simply saying the items are $1.

So if you sell something tangible like vitamins, try limiting the quantity customers can buy. And if you’ve got a slew of information products in the same niche, you might try pricing them at 3 for $29.99 for example, rather than $10 apiece.

Fast Tip For Decreasing Refunds and Increasing Name Recognition

Here’s an all too common scenario – you sell a product and the next day the purchaser asks for a refund.

Or you sell a product, but when you send emails to the buyer, they don’t remember who you are.

Here’s a simple idea to simultaneously help you on both of these fronts:

Split your product up into 4 separate modules and deliver each one a week apart. This means you’re delivering your product over a 22 day period – still well within a 30 day money back time frame. The first module goes out immediately, the second one goes out on day 8, the third on day 15 and the forth on day 22.

This will reduce refunds because customers are waiting to get all of the material, and in the process they’ll tend to forget about the refund.

And because they’re expecting your future releases, you’ll enjoy better name recognition from them, helping to ensure they open future emails.

It doesn’t matter what you are selling, this app will help you sell it!

To create landing pages that convert, you need to have compelling sales scripts. You can get more clicks, more sign-ups, more commission if your sale script catches immediate attention.

Scriptdio is a new, first of its kind, groundbreaking app, which allows you to generate full-length sales scripts and headlines by simply swiping done-for-you templates and filling in the blanks.

It is using proven copywriting formulas inspired by the greatest known copywriters.

Sales scripts based on the same fundamental key copywriting principles, which are the base of Scriptdio frameworks, worked great for many businesses for over three decades and even helped many people to make sales presentations.

It doesn’t matter what your business is selling with sales scripts generated by Scriptdio.

It can work for all and any businesses and products, no matter the market niche.

It doesn’t matter if you are selling services or you are selling products.

It doesn’t matter if you are selling digital or physical products.

It doesn’t matter if you are giving away something for free to generate more leads.

It doesn’t even matter if you are just selling an idea or a concept.

If you want people to take action, Scriptdio is the software for you.

The Best Way To Succeed In Business Is To BE In Business

“The Best Way To Succeed In Business  Is To BE In Business”

Now doesn’t that just sound like the stupidest quote ever? And yet I’m about to demonstrate to you just how profoundly true that quote is, and how it can totally change your business life.

First, a word of caution: If you are waiting for the “perfect” business idea or plan to get started, then you will never, ever start. Nothing is perfect, and there always seems to be another idea that is more intriguing, exciting, newer, etc. just around the corner. Yes, the grass is always greener – and if you’re always looking at the greener grass elsewhere, you will die without having started your business. It’s that simple.

So if you haven’t started yet, then choose an idea that is good enough (not perfect) and just START now.

Okay, back to the quote. Those of you who have been in business for awhile can certainly attest to what I’m about to share with you, and it’s this: Only when you are in business will you see the next big thing and the next big thing after that.

Let’s say you sell widgets, and while you’re pitching your widgets, you’re told by your customer that your competition is now delivering their widgets in an entirely new way. You never would have known this had you not already been in the business. So what do you do? You could run back to the office and moan and groan that your competition is leaving you in the dust, or you could figure out what they’re doing and then find a way to do it better/faster/cheaper. If you do, you’ll smoke your competition and grow you business. Bottom line, you  never would have known that your own business needed to evolve if you hadn’t been in business in the first place.

Another example: You’ve built up a terrific mailing list of people in your niche who love you and trust your advice. A red hot expensive product comes out that you and all of your competitors are going to promote as affiliates. But because you’ve been in business for awhile, you’ve got the list and the trust of those people on the list. Result? You make MASSIVE affiliate commissions that you never would have made if you hadn’t already been in business.

Third example: You’re coming out with your new product, and because you’ve been in business for awhile you have a long list of affiliates and JV partners who will be glad to promote your product. Had you not been in business, you wouldn’t have made these contacts.

Fourth example: You’ve been in business for awhile and like the smart entrepreneur you are, you’ve been saving money. An opportunity comes to buy out the competition – an opportunity you wouldn’t even know about, much less be able to afford, had you not already been in business.

If you haven’t started your business yet, start. Now. This month. If you have started, then here’s what you need to do – find out who your competition is and then watch what they do. You’ll get some of your very best ideas from watching others in your industry, as well as watching businesses totally removed from your own niche.

Don’t put your head in the sand. Always be looking, watching, monitoring, etc., what’s going on outside of your business. Because you’re in business already, you’ll be able to spot things you never would have seen standing on the sidelines.

And talk with your customers. A lot. Talk with them on Facebook, on your blog, on your forum and so forth. Find out what makes them tick, what they want, and what their biggest challenges are.

Just as you cannot learn to swim without getting wet, you cannot succeed in business without BEING IN BUSINESS.

You must educate yourself to earn all the time.

The Best of Zig Ziglar

We’ve lost the legendary sales trainer and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar to a bout with pneumonia. As you know he was an inspiration to sales people, businesses and marketers everywhere. He authored 29 sales and motivational books, including See You At The Top, and traveled extensively giving motivational and training presentations.

What better way to honor Zig than with a few of his own quotes?

Motivational Quotes:

“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.”

“Every choice you make has an end result.

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”

“People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

“Your business is never really good or bad ‘out there.’ Your business is either good or bad right between your own two ears.”

“Remember that failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.”

“If you don’t see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.”

“When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.”

Sales Quotes:

“You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”

“Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.”

“Timid salesmen have skinny kids.”

“People don’t buy for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons.”

“Stop selling. Start helping.”

Personal Life Quotes:

“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.”

“If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.”

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

“If you dream it, you can achieve it.
