Update and Network Marketing Pro Marathon

Update and Network Marketing Pro Marathon

I haven’t posted anything because I haven’t had anything moving to say. I was spending time with my son who was watching Extra Credits channel on YouTube. During that time I was thinking of what I wanted to post and how I hadn’t posted in a while. Then the speaker said that he only posts a video when there is something worth listening to! I have to agree with this way of thinking.

With that said, quick overview of what has been going on in my world. I started going to the gym and swim each day. When I started 3 Saturdays ago I could barely swim the 500 – 20 laps – in 25 minutes. The following Saturday I swam the 1000 – 40 laps – in 20 minutes. This past Saturday I swam 1500 – 60 laps – in 25 minutes. I was very nervous about progressing so fast as I had hurt my shoulder a few years ago from swimming. But I have to say I feel great being back in the water!

In January my son said that I need a social life. That night I went to a high school friend’s birthday party. I’ve been building my social life since. And I’m truly enjoying myself.

I started attending Meetup events again. Through Meetup I have eaten at a few local restaurants that I didn’t know existed but am happy that I experienced. I went paddleboarding and singing in karaoke. I attended a maritime archaeological presentation about the Half Moon wreck off the coast of Miami (25 43’37.45″N 80 08’04.66″W) and cocktail event for Reef Guard and 1-800-Yacht Charters. I’ve started with Toastmasters, Bill Walsh’s Rainmakers, and a couple networking events. This week a friend and I are going to a ghost tour at the Deering Estate, and I have a networking event. My son is in the South Beach triathlon for the swim leg and has his Spring Concert.

In other areas I released a torch that I didn’t even know I was still holding for someone. He came back after 5 years and there was so much I had to say, but after saying everything there was nothing left. Speaking about relationships I started talking to a high school friend with whom I had a falling out with many years ago. I look forward to spending time with her. ALL in all my world is expanding in a positive way.

On the business front I am talking to people and still having a challenge following up with some of them but I feel much more confident with what I’m doing. I’m talking with doctors regarding Nutrametrix – to promote health in the community, build retail income, and create residual income. I am also working with a couple Non-Profit Organizations with Fundraising. If you are interested in learning how to Convert your Spending into Earning contact me. If you are tired of trading your time for money and want to create Large Residual Income contact me.

I have been watching a Network Marketing Pro as a marathon getting my mind back into working for myself and solidifying my skills. I do notice that I’m more confident and am able to talk to people in a relaxed manner. Now just learning how to keep my tone and manner conversational. If you have any tips to help feel free to contact me.

I wish you ALL the Best and Many Blessings!

New Year’s Resolutions

Standard
New Year’s Resolutions

This year has been a world of change for us.

In April Keegan did the swim leg of a triathlon. In May we went to Jamaica for a swim meet with the Flying Fish Swim Club. My son graduated from middle school and started high school. In September Miami Dade College closed its pool to the public meaning we had to leave and no longer swim under the name Flying Fish. He loves his school, his program and swimming for his school.

In February I got bronchitis again. In April at the triathlon I got a severe case of poison oak and left my job. In May I got to go back to Jamaica for the first time in 21 years. I enjoyed seeing friends and family. In June I was able to go to Vegas for Insanity Bootcamp that changed my views of network marketing. The section that resonated with me the most was:

People respond to your campaign, you, THEN your business opportunity.

I first started with Put Health Back in Healthcare, which then expanded to Building Better Communities. I am happy that Market America is so diverse that I’m able to work with various professionals – veterinarians, health professionals, financial advisers, new musical artists, makeup artists, business owners, gym owners and instructors, to name a few – but then I also get to work with entrepreneurs and people who want a change in their lives. I love what I am doing.

With this summary of the year, yesterday I saw the TedTalks of Dr Joel Fuhrman. It reminded me of my New Year’s Resolution for a 85-90% plant based diet. I went to the library and borrowed his book Eat to Live and am now a quarter way through the book which also touches on another resolution to read a book a month. I’m now talking to anyone who will listen to me about what I do and my goals which is another resolution of being a Positive Force in the community.

I love how the experiences of the past couple years have made me able to succeed in changing my life to fulfill these resolutions. I still have a few resolutions to live out: Leading by Example, Helping Others Succeed, Becoming Financially Free, and Traveling the World. And know that the actions I’m doing now will help me reach those in the near future.

Looking back over the year and thinking of your New Year’s Resolutions are you there yet? Or at least much closer to having changed your life from last December? ALL the Best to you and Best Wishes in your endeavors!

Desires and Fear

Desires and Fear

When one begins a new endeavor there is a passion, an energy, a calling. However, within a few weeks another feeling come into play… Fear. A few fears are that someone will criticize, that you may fail, or that people will turn against you. The fear that I battle with every day is the fear of succeeding – growing away from the friends that I have and them resenting me, having new responsibilities when I’m finally understanding and feeling comfortable with the ones I have, and feeling isolated.

The rational part of my brain is looking at these reasons and worked through them – many of my friends are struggling, so I either need to set a successful example or I need a new set of people to associate with. I enjoy challenges and when I work for someone else I relish in giving myself new responsibilities. And I am around people for half of the day who enjoy my company and me just for being me – these are the swim parents, PTSA moms and music parents.

I desire to change the world and have my name be known… not so much me but my name. I want to help the next generation to be aware of better ways to live their lives and reach their dreams. I want to inspire people to LIVE BIG! I want to be known as the person who enjoys helping people and makes a positive difference in others lives. I want to be known as the person who gives others an honest opportunity and works with them to succeed. I want to be know as the person who builds large royalty incomes for non profit organizations while helping health professionals, veterinarians, business owners, entrepreneurs, financial planners, and budding artists earn a secondary income while enhancing their current occupations.

What are your desires? What are the fears that stop you from moving towards those desires? May I help?

Being vs Feeling Helpless

Standard
Being vs Feeling Helpless

I’m sure you looked at that picture and thought to yourself “That Sucks!” but being a picture there was nothing that you could do about it. If you were to step out of your life and look at it objectively with our thoughts and feelings would you say the same thing?

A few years ago a friend of mine was in a job that she absolutely hated. Her beloved company was bought out and the new company was ridding itself of the employees of the original company.  Her new boss had no idea what needed to be done and didn’t build employee morale. While my friend was at work she was expected to train her boss who was unappreciative and rude. Every time my friend had a bad day she would call and complain to me. And my comment would always be to brush up the resume and start looking. These words went unheeded until she was laid off along with the last 1/4th of the original company. Strangely enough my friend was DEVISTATED! I couldn’t for the life of me understand how she was so upset when EVERY DAY she was upset!? The funny thing is that less that 5 weeks later she had another job… that she liked! Why did she stay?

In my last job my coworker was verbally belittled and blamed for everything that went wrong in the office, including mistakes that were made before she worked at the company. My boss had it out for her and in meeting would let loose a barrage of barbs aimed at my coworker. There were a couple of time when my coworker was shaking from being emotionally overwhelmed! The rest of the office would tell her to start looking for other work as this the boss has it out for her and her response was that she was a single mom with no family to help her. I left the company and a couple months later she was fired. She was written up for 5 year old mistakes (she wasn’t working there at the time), mistakes that I made and corrected, and overlooking some details. In the past couple months she has been unemployed looking for work. Why did she stay?

 

I experienced these two incidents and the question Why did these two hard working, sharp women stay in such negativity? Did they not think they were good enough to find something better? Did they think this was the best that they could get?

Too many people don’t think that they can succeed in attaining their dreams and with that thought they don’t even bother to attempt to try. They think this is probably the best they can have.

My own story… When I first decided to quit my job a part of me said that I wasn’t going to succeed, that I would need a job in a few months. There were so many people who told me that this is crazy and still ask me every time they see me if I found my way and got another job. It doesn’t matter that I have plenty of experience with customer service, training others, communications, interpersonal skills, public speaking and business. It doesn’t matter that I’m working much harder for myself than I was for my last job. The only thing they see is I don’t have the gold level health insurance or paid vacations. It doesn’t matter that I am happier now, am able to be at my son’s school or events when needed, and can set my hours to any time.

Something pushed me to the breaking point and a part of me knew that I am able giving me the courage to leave. Over the past few months I’ve worked through hurdles, reached epiphanies, and spoke with hundreds of people. Over the past couple weeks the seeds that I planted are finally breaking the surface and I’m seeing results. The feelings of helplessness are lifting and I can appreciate that I was never actually helpless to attain my goals!

Follow Your Passion

Standard
Follow Your Passion

Do you remember what your passion is? Are you happily living your passion?

When I ask random people one of my favorite questions “If you had a Billion dollars, what would you be doing?” 8 out of 10 will tell me: quit my job, pay off all my bills, buy [whatever toys], and take a vacation. When I dig a little deeper I hear: I don’t know or I never really thought of that.

Why are dreams stamped out by others?

When I told my dad that I wanted to be a parapsychologist and get my degree at Duke University, he told me parapsychology is a rich man’s hobby.

When I wanted to be a priest (I went to Catholic school) the head nun told me that only a man can become a priest. As a woman I can become a nun. What is up with that?

Why do we allow others to stamp out our dreams?

It wasn’t until this year that I decided that I serve the world better when I do what makes me happy. I enjoy meeting people, talking to people, hearing about their dreams and goals, and helping them attain them. Not only do I get a sense of accomplishment, I am a positive role model for my son and his friends.

My son has always been taught that he can accomplish anything he set his mind to as long as he decides every day that that is what he wants to do and is working towards the goal. When it comes to swim practice I don’t have to force him as he is the one who will be upset with the results of his next meet. I have always taught him about accountability and responsibility. That he is the creator of his life and through his decisions makes his own path.

Sometimes the push that others give, put us on a better road that the original one

I got my bachelor in Business (my 10th declared major – my parents just wanted me to finish “with PE if needed”) and then got a master in IT. I must admit that I truly feel in my element when I restructure a business that has grown too fast, make a computer system scalable, and teach coworkers professional skills.  There is so much more that I have in my sights and decide every day to move towards.

Maybe dreams ARE just goals with no deadline… I can still become a parapsychologist; however, I don’t want to be a priest any more. If it wasn’t for some of my “dream stealers” I wouldn’t have my big dreams now or love what I do.

 

Embracing My Reality

Standard
Embracing My Reality

Do you wake up every morning with a spring in your step, eager to face the world? Or were you like me who hated my job, had to bear an 45 minute commute and deal with the office politics, drab ambiance and negative attitudes? I really didn’t like what I was doing as I didn’t feel challenged or like I was making a difference in my community.

I had settled for this reality for too long. I took a leap of faith on network marketing. Losing my way there also. I enjoyed the public speaking, the helping others build extra income, and the talking with random people. What I didn’t like was seeing a person need help but was too afraid to take it, believe that they had “job security”, and think that network marketing was just about retail.

In the past couple weeks I’ve embraced my true purpose in life and reality. I’m a visionary and leader. Eric Worre had taught me in his Insanity Bootcamp that people look at me then my campaign THEN my business opportunity. I love helping others and making a positive difference that can me measured. Thankfully have found a few divisions within my company that allows me to build my community.

Do you know a charity that needs help fundraising? Do you know any non profits that could use extra money? Is your child in school with a PTA or PTSA that is asking you to sell chocolates, wrapping paper or useless nick knacks to have a bigger budget to improve the quality of school life? The NPO division gives non profit organizations the ability to earn royalties without having their supporters pull extra money out of their pockets than what they are already spending!

Do you know a health professional who is struggling? Are you a health professional who is frustrated with your profit margin? Feeling overwhelmed with your insurance, payroll and other monthly costs just to stay open? Do you get questions from your current clientele about supplements and just referred them to the local drug store? The Nutrametrix product line is made specifically for helping licensed health professionals build a strong foundation and promote health to their clientele through education and supplements.

Do you know anyone who is passionate to help others become healthy? Do you know anyone who is overweight and just spinning their wheels in losing weight? TLS product line is made specifically to educate and promote living a healthy lifestyle.

Are you a seasoned employee who is now unemployed? Were you laid off because your job is now being outsourced? Are you a grad coming out of college without a job? Don’t you think it’s time for a change? Some companies have already changing work from hourly pay to salary knowing that the average person will put in 5 – 15 extra hours just to get their work done while not get extra compensation. I think in communities there should be basic skills training to succeed in network marketing as this is where the money is and these skills can be used in other industries. The main business Market America gives people the freedom to be their own boss.

My next posts will go deeper in details for each division and how it can benefit you, someone you know AND your community.

Better Attitude

Standard
Better Attitude

When I started my network marketing career my focus was on how can I earn money. I forgot my attitude that it doesn’t matter how much I make as long as I enjoy what I’m doing. Over the months the work got to be really hard and I felt like I was stalling. With school recently starting and PTSA/PTAs needing assistance raising money, I turned my attention to helping my community’s non profit organizations.

With this I don’t have to bother my friends and family to buy things they don’t want or need, get exposed to hundreds in my community, and feel great helping others. To top it off I earn a living talking with and helping people.

I left a good paying job that was not fulfilling and life draining. With a leap of faith that network marketing works, a desire to make a difference in other people’s lives and the knowing that I can do so much more I found so much more! I look forward to every meeting. I look forward to talking with people. AND I never feel like I’m imposing as I truly have something that helps my community and those who contact me!

If you know of a non profit organization that needs help fund raising please have them contact me. I will gladly assist!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duplicatability Overrated, Helping Charities

Standard

image

My experience in Network Marketing is that when I have an idea that reflects my personality and abilities some of my senior partners will basically slap me down with “not being duplicatable”. I appreciate that there are some tried and true skills and systems that I can utilize, but being that my goals, personality and abilities are different isn’t it normal that some of my approaches be original? My team is open to the initiatives that I’m launching and want guidance to start duplicating what I’m doing.

I’m working with some of the local PTSAs and nonprofits that my son is a part of earn a potential of $187,200 annually in royalties without them having to ask supporters for money outright! How many charities do you know that can use the extra money? The process is simple and it takes time to build momentum but this is doable! Contact me to help local charities.

Thinking BIGGER

I am the change I want to see

I am the change I want to see

After launching Put Health Back in Healthcare I was talking to an entrepreneur coach, Larry Jacobson, who saw my video and offered a free 30 minute consult. He picked apart what my goals were and how to relate them. He restructured how I need to order my videos to talk to the target audience. He also helped me to think BIGGER!

In my video I had stated that I wanted to

  1. Change the perception of Network Marketing
  2. Recruit and Train 5,000 ambitious South Floridians
  3. Assist 10,000 South Floridian Licensed Health Professionals

 

He said that my vision will automatically change people’s perception of Network Marketing so not to say it, just do it.

And the amount of people involved will make a difference within my community. *my goal* He then said that I should work with non-profits first. Thankfully my network marketing company has a NPO division which is free for the NonProfit and can earn a potential of $187,200 annually.

I’ve already spoken to my son’s school’s PTSA and will call all the schools in my county to assist them with this initiative.

My view has expanded from Put Health Back in Healthcare to Keep Money in the Community.
