Getting an assignment to make ends meet

If you have ever heard me speak or heard my story, you will know that I have been in network marketing 6 years. During that time, I've learned a lot. I've seen a lot of people become successful and I've seen a lot of people fail. The difference between those people were their commitment  When things get hard, that's usually when situations turn around but a lot of people don't make it to that point. I'm determined to see this thing through. 

The key to being successful in network marketing is to get your team on top. Make sure they make the money they need to be successful. If not, your world will crumble in an instant. Vitel Wireless has stepping stones in place as incentives to keep your team motivated, to keep them energized and excited. Not only are we able to support ourselves, but my main goal is to be able to help someone in the process. Blessed to be a blessing is my main goal.

What do you consider a raise?

Today I was chatting with someone on FaceBook about their new promotion on their job. They were telling me the process of the promotion and how they had to do several interviews, take a test and write an essay. As I was saying congratulations, I asked, was the raise going to be a significant impact on their finances? Her response was something that rocked me to the core. She said, "A little, I'll get $1.30 raise." She then went on to say that that company hadn't paid raises in 4 years. Inside I was crushed. She had to jump through all those hoops just for an extra $1.30/hr.

This is the world that we live in today. The government talks about unemployment rates are high, companies aren't hiring, and people are struggling. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not rich by any means...YET and  do have a heart for people who are in need because I was in that place several times in my life. But each time that I had to struggle, I made a commitment to myself that I would not get back to that place again. I am a single mom with two awesome boys who watch my every move. So its up to me to teach them a better way. Moreover, I've taken on the responsibility to teach other people to learn different. We don't want more because we don't know better. Don't let this be you. This is a vehicle that can open doors that no job can. But you can't just sit back and watch me or the other leaders in this business and "see what happens" because we are doing it. We are changing our finances and others in the process.

Are you getting involved in Networking events?

Joining your local Chamber of Commerce can be invaluable for your network marketing business. The key is to not just JOIN – but to be INVOLVED.   Attend the monthly networking luncheons, and have your “30 second commercial” ready to roll off your tongue during introductions.  This means when they go around the table to do introductions, you know EXACTLY what you are going to say. Make sure that it is no longer than 30 seconds, and it’s to the point.  In 30 seconds, you should be able to say who you are, what company you are with, what that company does, and how you would like to help those who are at the event today. Here is an example of what I say :

Mobile blogging. Who uses it?

This morning I have several appointments lined up so I took a few mins to see if mobile blogging was worth while. Typing on this phone has its advantages and disadvantages. Hopefully I don't have too many misspelled words.  The formatting will be plain. If you use it, let me know.

Tax tips...How to write off your fun

I was going to wait and share this tomorrow but I might as well bless you today. No matter why you started your own business, the benefits to owning a small business are the same for all. Last week the first round of presidential debates where held. I'm not going to make this a political post but one thing I noticed was the candidates were talking to different audiences. Some of the topics were geared to the wealthy, the poor and the middle class. One of the things that we all need to grasp is that business ownership is for everyone. They all have different start up costs but we all can reap the same benefits. Network Marketing is the easiest business to get started with minimal overhead costs. If you dont have a business then  you arent aware of the tax breaks and write offs afforded to us. I ran across a tip on how to write off your fun. If you dont have a business and are interested in starting one, click here to learn more.

If you already have a business, check out how you can write off your fun

Write off your FUN! 
By Sandy Botkin
How would you like to write off your FUN and entertainment? Things like: golf, sporting events, theater tickets, nightclubs, and more!

The IRS allows you to deduct 50% of what they call "Associated Entertainment." AKA "fun!" The key is that the entertainment must either precede or follow a substantial and bona fide business discussion during the SAME 24 HOURS as the entertainment!

Real Life Example: Lee has a business lunch with Karen and discusses business. If Lee suggests they go play golf after the lunch, then he may deduct 50 percent of all his golfing costs!

Insider Secret: To audit proof your record you must record the link between a business conversation and the fun in the same day. You can do this in your tax organizer or tax diary, or easily with Taxbot!

Special Canadian Note: Canadians can't deduct green fees for golf deductions. However, they can depreciate golf clubs, deduct golf balls and caddie fees to the extent that they document business discussions in Taxbot and prove it was a business expense. Enjoy the sunny day on the course!  

Watch the video below to see how you can write off your fun with Taxbot! 

Getting beyond your warm market

The other night, I was laying in bed after listening  to a conference call. Too excited to go to sleep, I dictated some notes for today's post. We have implemented some awesome marketing tools, but for new people to the industry, they may seem overwhelming. We all know the stress associated with trying to keep up with too much at once. We all know why we start businesses and why were looking for something else to supplement our income so its very important to keep up that momentum and focus. Read the tips below or

The best is yet to come!

Its Saturday evening and I was chilling and relaxing. Today was my youngest son's birthday party and Im exhausted. I hadn't planned on writing tonight but something special happened. One of the Leaders in my company held an emergency conference call. Before I go on,  I want to say how Great my GOD is. I know we hear that a lot. People say it everyday and while God is "Good all the time", its an awesome feeling when he shows himself GREAT in other people.

Tonight my upline Curtis Cross, (yes, same last name, no relation) revealed a new marketing plan that he has come up with to help us grow our business bigger and faster that ever before. I will share more about that on Monday, but I want to leave you with this; Do not question GOD for HE knows the plans he has for you. As I write those words, they are revelation for me as well. I have had a rough couple of months. While I was/am going though, I can tell the end is in sight. Everyone has given me encouragement during this time but it was very hard to receive. My thought process was trying to comprehend WHY and just couldnt. I never came up with an answer but I kept hearing this very clearly...Be patient and I will see you through. Its almost like HE interrupted my thoughts, said that, and then was like, back to your regularly scheduled program.

I say that, to say this...This marketing plan is awesome and I feel will be the answer to some of my questions and prayers. If you are on my team, know something BIG is coming and get ready. If you are not and want to be, CLICK HERE. If you are in another business but are here to learn tips on how to grow your bottom line, stay tuned. The best is yet to come!

Good night and have a blessed weekend.

How to Become a Successful Network Marketer

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  Goals + Actions = Results!

Anyone can master the art of Network Marketing with a little bit of effort. Whether you realize it or not, we all network in one form or another. It’s apart of our everyday life.

Networking is a very broad concept that is used in all aspects of our life. In general, it’s about a supportive system of sharing information and services among people with common interests. It’s based on the question “How can I help you?” and not “What can you do for me?”

Though the idea of Network Marketing can be intimidating and hard to understand, it is a very effective way of growing a business and gaining access to opportunities that you wouldn’t usually have.
So how can you become a successful Network Marketer you ask?

Here are the guidelines that you can follow:

7 reasons people say no to Network Marketing

1) I just don’t have the money. Finances are really tight right now
We all know the economy is terrible everywhere, but have you been into Walmart lately?  What about at Christmas time?  There was no shortage of consumers walking out the doors with big screen tvs, Nintendo Wiis, and cartloads of gifts and supplies for the holiday.  Have you been past a restaurant at dinnertime lately?  The parking lots are not empty. Folks are even taking vacations which is mind boggling when their home life is not taken care of.  People are feeling a pinch in certain areas of their lives, but people will always find a way to buy what they want to buy.  Even you.  Did you stop buying weekly lotto tickets?  Do you still have cable TV? Bottom line, people do what they feel is important to them at the time. The great thing about my business is, we've identified which priorities are most important to people during this bleak economy and provide services aligned with them. All of the above mentioned purchases are services we offer and get paid on. Online shopping, debit card purchases, dining, cellphone payments, cable/internet services and payments, home and car payments. See what I mean? These are things that are necessities.  My primary company was developed with the economy in mind. There are 3 levels to get start, and one of them is FREE. Issue solved. 

How to slip your business into an ordinary conversation

Good Morning. I'm up trying to get my kids off to school and it seems like they are not in the mood. So instead of nagging them, I decided to make my morning coffee and begin my work. As I sit here and sip caramel macciato, I reflect back to a dinner conversation that I had a couple of nights ago. Someone asked me, "How do you just drum up a conversation with people you don't know and talk to them about your business?" Its an interesting question with an interesting answer.There’s the perception out there that Network Marketers are the types of people that will ONLY talk to you about their product/service/opportunity.  That may be true of some people and you may think that I enter with the typical intro, but I don't. Sometimes when people say where do you work, and I say I work from home, that opens a conversation but what if that specific question never gets asked? I find that one of the hardest things networks marketers struggle with most is talking about their business. This perception has scared many network marketers out of talking about their business at all.  They don’t want to be seen as “that person”.
