Great Laughs

Last night I went to a meetup event. I met 9 really nice people at a VERY EXPENSIVE seafood restaurant. I had a Fantastic time! I sat with 3 ladies and together we laughed so I couldn’t breathe. I can’t even remember how long ago I had such a GREAT time!

Business wise one of the ladies I laughed with knows a non-profit that needs assistance in fundraising and another member of the group is the pastor of a church looking for fundraising.

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!

Happy New Year! Can I assist you?

When I saw this quote on my Google+ feed I knew this was my goal for 2015. Seeing this year as a blank slate I see things that freak me out a little:

I hit my all time not pregnant weight which is almost my full term pregnancy weight. I went walking with a friend on the 2nd and within the first 10 minutes was out of breath. Though proudly I was able to manage my breathing and finish an hour long walk while talking.

I talked about my professional image and getting loads of advice on my 10, 30 and 60 second “commercials”. And the importance of a 5 and 10 minute description of what I do. I was also advised to attend every BNI event in South Florida.

Not only do I want to do that I’ve opened myself to finding a mentor who can work with me professionally – Network Marketer who earns a million dollars each month. I want that confidence and poise when speaking with people.

Also this past weekend I answered a post on LinkedIn to describe what I do in 7 words or less. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this exercise as it forced my to look at what I do and put it in concise, easy to understand language.

Implement fundraising initiatives that financially benefit supporters

Promote health and economic growth to communities

Train ambitious people basic skills to succeed

These also sum up why I’m an entrepreneur and keep me focused on my WHY.

I lastly decided to completely delve into becoming a PROFESSIONAL Network Marketer. After watching the documentary Rise of the Entrepreneur Search for a Better Way I fully understand this business and am confident on how to answer the typical questions of “Is this a pyramid scheme?”, “Is this a scam?” And my favorite comment “These things never work”. My goal is to help 1000 non-profits earn the full income potential my company pays out by helping entrepreneurs succeed, professionals flourish, business owners save money and “ordinary people” build a better personal economy.

Back to my health I’m transitioning to becoming a Nutritarian. As of right now 70 percent of my caloric intake is plant based. I got a Nutra Ninja Pro for Boxing Day *laughing* and drink 3-5 vegetable smoothies per day. I’ve already lost 8 lbs and 8 inches! Next week should be more as I am starting HIIT training today. I’ll keep you updated and if you would like to join me feel free to find and contact me on G+. I’ll happily connect with you.

I love the end of the year as it forces me to take stock of my life and start making little changes towards big goal so that by the time of the new year I’ve already started making new habits.

Fundraising Assistance

Fundraising Assistance

Last week 2 major things happened.

My son swam in Winter Champs. I am VERY proud of my son and his achievements.

And Greater Miami Youth Symphony asked me to help with their fundraising initiative! I am honored that this 56 year old non-profit which has benefited my son’s life would ask me to assist them. Background, GMYS teaches South Florida children music. It is very affordable (less than $1 a day),  instruments are usually loaned out to kids at no cost, and the kids’ self esteem soar! Sadly we rely on grants from the government and may be losing a big chunk of funding, hence a push in a new direction.

Thanksgiving weekend is The BIGGEST shopping weekend for the United States. We have off the wall savings. Would you like to help GMYS while earning cash back shopping online?

It’s easy. Just register and download Shop Buddy on all your computers – this way you NEVER miss a chance to earn cash back and GMYS receives royalties.

Best Wishes with your Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals!

Building a Better Community – Fundraising Assistance

Do you know a local non profit that needs assistance fundraising? How about a house of worship? A charity? Or the local school’s pta/ptsa?

As a single mom with a very engaged teen I have many obligations to participate in fundraisers. From my son’s 2 local swim teams, his school’s PTSA, and 2 music organizations he is a part of, I have a lot of money to donate and personally raise. I have found a company that helps non profits raise a potential of $187,000 without asking supporters to reach in their pockets for more money.

If you know a non profit who can benefit from this forward this and have them contact me. I want to help you Build a Better Community.

Embracing My Reality

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.
