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!

Kinda Quick Update

Standard

Wow I wasn’t aware just how long I haven’t posted. Sorry for that!

Many things have happened since Convention. I have been attending 4 business/networking events per week along with meeting men – I won’t call it dating as they were just meetings. Also along the line I did get to spend quality time with Monster Boy.

OK I joined 2 mastermind groups. One specifically for my company and the other for entrepreneurs. And I took a webinar about focusing in on what I want and just laser focus until I get it. The first 2 steps were the normal steps: 1. What do you really want at this time of your life? and 2. Why do you want these?  The third step was 3. WHY DON’T YOU HAVE WHAT YOU WANT? This to me is such a new concept. I found out answering that some of the reasons that I don’t do or have something is that it really isn’t that important to me. Ask these 3 questions and you will see what is going on in your head and your motivations or lack there of.

Being that I have had so many experiences in the past 3 weeks I’ll just recap week by week. The first week I got to talk to a woman about assisting in fundraising for a non profit that helps single parents (mostly women) collect child support. I was so happy to hear that her mother who is also in this group empower the women by reminding them that they have to figure out how to manage without the checks. This helped many recipients go out and really make a difference in their lives! I was *So Proud* I spoke with 2 other non-profits that week who have to meet with their boards to get the ok. The second non-profit meeting was pleasant. The office manager understood within the first 5 minutes of the presentation and was ecstatic that we also had wellness products as she buys many vitamins and supplements.

During that same week I went out on 3 personal events. Funny enough I found out one was a swim dad’s cousin. One was a really great guy who lived 45 minutes away and the 3rd had a REALLY ROUGH Life since taking his picture.

The next week (last week) was a quieter week. I got to talk with a prospect who had just gotten out of prison. After presenting the marketing plan we got to talking and he said something that blew my mind. He said that a person in jail and a financially free person live very similar lifestyles. I didn’t know what he meant so he clarified. When a person is financially free they have the time freedom to do anything they want and the money to actually do those things. In comparison when a person is in jail they have the time freedom to read, study, workout, etc. Granted they are on a strict schedule and aren’t free to do everything they want, but really think about it. I’m not saying that one should aim to go to prison. However isn’t the reason one works is to have the money to go out and LIVE… I don’t know many people who plan to work just to barely survive! Keep that in mind when someone asks you to watch a business plan to work for yourself!

I also got to talk with 1 non-profit and 2 other prospects. What amazed me was the mentality of the person from the non-profit group. She has a great program with inner city kids mostly high schoolers teaching empathy. I completely stand behind her cause. What shocked me was when we talked about fundraising! For those who don’t know I work with non-profits as a consultant to implement fundraising initiatives that financially benefit supporters. Yes you read that right I help non-profits fundraise WITHOUT asking for money by helping their supporters Save money and Earn Cash Back buying 95% of what they are already buying. For 35 minutes this person kept telling me that I need to help her sell her books! It wasn’t until I used the example of going to Macy’s finding a dress that she likes, using her phone to scan the bar code, buying it from her phone for cash back, and walking out with the dress that day! It took a few minutes for her after I said that to wrap her head around what I was talking about. I saw the light click on! She wrote a couple days later to tell me that she will contact me in 60 days as she needs to focus on the lesson plans.

I got to see the cousin a couple more times. He is a great guy. I just don’t think he is right for me. Last Sunday he texted me late in the evening to tell me that he was nursing a hangover! All I could think was “at 45 years old you still can’t figure out how to hold your liquor!” Oh well at least it happened very early!

Speaking of last Sunday my son got a rude awakening when I took him to a college fair. He was overwhelmed by the amount of colleges and this was a small fair. I had been telling him to start narrowing down colleges and his reply was always “Woman! I have 4 years!” The best part is that we learned how to filter colleges by parameters. Being that he wants to swim in a small to medium school that brought the number down to 155, When he put housing and no religious affiliation the number dropped to 46! THANK GOODNESS! After the fair we met with a summer program in Nice, France. They were Fantastic and we are both excited! Now it’s the task of getting his father to agree AND pay half! I’ll keep you updated!

OK now we are up to this week! I went to an Amazing event at UM, I got to see Rony Abovitz CEO of Magic Leap speak. I was so inspired by his talk as it fit in perfectly with what I had learned in a few other events but for some reason it resonated all the way down to my core. Click here to watch the talk. Afterwards I got to talk to him. I asked how do I go about growing my brand (how I see what I do) when so many people have such a misconception of what exactly I do. He recommended that I read the book Blue Ocean Strategy. By the next day I got the book and found the audiobook.

I had 2 Miami MA events this week. The one on Tuesday was a Business presentation and last night was a Shopping Annuity presentation. Both were great! I wasn’t aware that the Business presentation had added a shopping annuity overview. And the Shopping Annuity presentation blew me away. My guest was completely impressed and next week I will be presenting the business plan with her and 2 friends. Why would someone turn down a free service that completely benefits them by stretching their income? *completely confused* Start Today!

Wednesday night I had a Mastermind event. While there I was talking with someone who told me that I should have quick entries everyday as I experience something new daily. And it may relate with you the reader and/or inspire you in one way or another to act towards your goals.

Tonight I have a social dinner to attend and tomorrow there is a goal setting and keeping on track event. I enjoy meeting new people and am so entertained when I have Aha moments. Enjoy the videos and register to Convert your Spending into Earning no matter where you live!

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!

Better Health – Isotonix OPC-3

For most of my life I’ve been an allergy sufferer. I hated taking zyrtec and claritin, found out I was allergic to allegra, and didn’t like when benedryl knocked me out for 8 full hours. When I started with my network marketing company I decided to try our flagship product OPC-3.

Read about OPC-3 and its ingredients. Register for free and order today.

I started taking OPC-3 in March of 2013, and before finishing the first bottle I realized on my walk in to work that I hadn’t blown my nose all morning. I was always a person who upon rising would blow my nose for 2 hours. It was something that that I lived with from as far back as middle school.

During that time my mom also started OPC-3 she has arthritis in her fingers and knee. over the next few months she took 2 capfuls daily with 4 ounces of water making it isotonic. My mom went out of town, and during her trip she finished what she had packed. 3 days of not taking OPC-3 she noticed her fingers and knee started to feel stiff. When she came home, 5 days later, she told me how her arthritis was acting up again. She started her regimen again within a week the inflammation went down.

OPC-3 is a powerful antioxidant, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory. Take the bottle challenge. Try a bottle today and feel the benefits

I enhance practice revenue for health professionals. Find me in LinkedIn.

What is your “Why”?

Standard

Today was another Fantastic Day. I found 3 people who are interested in certain aspects of my business and want me to contact them. Then I got to spend most of the day at the second day of Conference! I got to reconnect with friends whom I haven’t seen since International Conference in August. Being that Conference is going on by the time I come home and get ready for bed before typing my blog may seem a bit too impersonal. Please just read and get the message and I promise by next weekend you will “see” my happy bubbly self again. I’m just suffering Brain Fry with SO MUCH Info being crammed in my head at Conference.

The reason that I brought all that up is that I won’t be able to go on the last day because my son has his first meet of the season and he needs qualifying times. Someone told me that there was NO reason BIG Enough to miss a day. I have been thinking about that. My son is the reason that I’m with this company. He was the driving force for me learning what I know and specializing in nMx. He also listens to my presentations and talks to people about contacting me for more time and financial freedom. He is my Why!

Today I was talking to a friend and we brought up closings. After telling her our #1 money earner’s close “How soon would you like to be making money with this company?”, but what if the person isn’t motivated by money? I said the best close that I use is “Whose dream are you working towards?” As a marketer my goal is to find out what the person wants or needs, and then give them the solution.

Being that most people have just been lulled by the ins and outs of going to work, coming home, watching tv and going to bed, repeat not many have really stopped to think “What is your why for living?“, “What are you passions?” and “What makes you get up excited in the morning?

A Decision

Standard
A Decision

Hi I’m Stef, a Chinese Jamaican single mom and entrepreneur. Looking at this  statement I notice that I have many labels and hopefully one here, or along the way, will connect with you. I’m not here to have millions of readers just a group that I can connect and grow with. I enjoy connecting with people and being a positive force in their lives.

I want to touch a chord in your life and through experiences, that I have and remember, help you to bring out your own Brilliance AND the give you the courage to show it to and share it with the world. I will reply to all email that is respectfully written “I disagree with your point of view…” as opposed to “You suck” because as I said I’m not here to attract the masses and am not looking to please everyone. I would also like to hear about your life, your goals and your steps to in getting there.

With that said I love audio books and recently I’ve been listening to Seth Godin. I LOVE that man and some of his works resonate with me – listening to him gave me the courage to start this. My background in school was that I finally graduated from college with my 10th declared major for Tourism and Hospitality Management and have a Masters in IT Business.

The reason I write this is that at 40 years old I know I can’t conform to the rules of corporate America. My favorite past jobs were the small start-up companies or the midsize companies that grew too fast and needed to be restructured. I love the challenge of forging a path, the versatility of many hats and the rewards of seeing how I made something work or learning from my mistakes.  I also have a strong background in sales and customer services because I love being around people, solving perceived problems and getting a glimpse of people’s true selves.

I love my life not because I have everything that I want (presently I live with my parents, don’t like my day job, and am paying my way out of debt), but because I’m an artist and have decided to embrace this. I am starting and maintaining this blog for the selfish reason of “showing my Brilliance” and for the selfless reason of being vulnerable so that you may be comfortable to show yours.

I know this sounds disjointed but it will get better with more practice.
