Leadership Paramaters

I want to talk about the boundaries and parameters of being a Good Leader.

No matter if you are in sales, coaching, network marketing or what have you, you have to have boundaries.  Setting boundaries early allows you to be the best version of yourself and the best leader to your team.

This is specifically important when you are leading other people who are building organizations and teams themselves within network marketing. You have to set boundaries day one because this sets the expectation for your team.

However, understand now that you cannot serve all people. The people that you personally bring into your business are your top priority. That being said, you want to be a duplicatable leader to everyone else.  Show them how to set the parameters.  Leading a team can quickly take over your life.  Things, like setting office hours or having a dedicated email instead of using facebook messenger, are easy ways to set the standard.  Being available 24/7 can quickly burn you out and it sets an unrealistic expectation for others to follow.

You may have people fall through the cracks… but remember, at the end of the day their success is dependent on them.  It is not dependent on who brought them into the business or dependent on the company.  It is only dependent on their own personal accountability.

You hear me say it all the time… You have to keep “Doing the Do”.  You cannot just sit back and expect it all to come to you.  But that’s where Duplicatable Leadership comes in. When you “Do the Do”, that is the expected results you will get from your team.

You must be the example for your team. Show your team how to:

  • Take ownership in their actions
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Build trust

In network marketing, you are a professional relationship builder. Always think about what you can do for others, not what you can do for yourself.  Be that leader and watch your team prosper!!

Make it a great day!!

What makes you… YOU?

Often times in network marketing people Brand the company or product without thinking about branding themselves.  So why is it so important to Brand yourself??  Great question…let’s discuss.

You are the one that creates the experience. You are the one people are buying from.  In this industry and in this day and age you have to align yourself with a great company and a great product. At the end of the day, people buy from people that they Know, Like and Trust. Don’t ever forget this.  Provide the best customer service, the best experience….PERIOD.

Many representatives of companies send thank you cards for purchases, a follow-up phone call to see how they are liking what they purchased.  Also if you don’t have a referral program…Create One!  That way you can offer this to all of your customers. Let them know you care.  Many people ask for milestone information so that they can send them a birthday card or a small gift. The power is in the personal touch.  What is your Personal Touch?

Also remember even if you haven’t been in the industry very long or you are with a new company, YOU are the expert. You know more than the people who you are talking to. Don’t be afraid because if you don’t know the answer, you can find the answer.  Learn as you Earn and Earn as you Learn.

Treat your business like you invested a million dollars in it. Then that will be the ROI (return on investment) you will receive.  People will take you seriously when you treat your business like a business not hobby.  

Also, have fun!  People are attracted to passionate, humorous, excited people and let’s face it we need more of that in our lives. I say it all the time… positivity and happiness equal bigger paydays.  It is a proven fact. So what are you grateful or happy about in your life and business? Go out and share this wonderful vehicle you have to save people from their dreary jobs, bankruptcy or foreclosure.  Let’s face it EVERYONE and I mean everyone is looking for more money.

What qualities do you have that stand out? Is it your willingness to help others? Is it time management? Are you a visionary? A taskmaster? A speaker? Focus on what you are really good at and hone that skill. Surround yourself with people who are better than you. If you make a mistake…and we all do…apologize be genuine and move on!  Leaders are willing to take risks…calculated ones.

Make It OR Break It!

I am in the lovely Bay City, reminiscing about my amazing experience last weekend. My bucket is so full right now. In was inspiring, fulfilling and motivating beyond what I could’ve hoped for!!

Last weekend we did our First Annual Leadership Retreat. We flew in 11 of our frontline Leaders and they got to bring 1 top performing team member.  They held a contest and had a lot of fun with it.  Encouragement and Reward at its finest!

The theme was “Train the Trainer”.  Each person shared their favorite training technique and methods.  We talked about so many good topics and there were so many great takeaways.

So now, I am overflowing with joy!!   Being with these amazing leaders… and some of us have worked together for a long time… reinforced in all of us the “You have to make it or break it” mentality.

During the retreat, these words stuck out to me:  “When people get stuck they struggle. Then they look to outside sources and in turn get mixed up in non-income-producing activities.   We have to stick with the PROVEN income activities there’s no reason to stray!

I say all this to you for this main reason… You have the opportunity to Make or Break your business it’s all up to you!!  Reach out to your leaders go to these retreats there is so much learning to be done from each other.

In the words of my nine-year-old daughter “You want to grow… Help others grow and you will too” 🙂

Feeling Overjoyed and Blessed today and I hope you are too!!

Don’t take it Personal…

I tend to take things personally sometimes. It’s no secret that I wear my heart on my sleeve and that I am extremely emotional. Because of these qualities, I have learned to take a step back and give it 24 hours or some “breathing room” when I feel offended. If I don’t do that I find myself ready to jump down somebody’s throat. Have you ever felt that way?

We need outlets to relieve the stress that adds to us feeling this way. I have a lot of people ask me “when” and “how” I take time for myself.  I do it every day!!  My workout routine… running, gym, yoga… I do that for me! They are my zen moments. They are my outlets for stress relief.

I know some people have trouble unplugging especially in this business.  When I need to unplug I put my phone away or give it to my husband… and he’s more than happy to keep it from me 😉  Unplugging can be key to destressing.

Rest, Relax, Recharge. It’s all part of personal growth. We have to find time for these.

Woman, I am talking to you here because men don’t really do this 😉  Women are taught to put everyone else first over themselves. So our own self-care gets put on the back burner. But that’s not okay. When we put self-love, self-care, self-appreciation of ourselves first… we grow. When we do that we are the best we can be!

What does it mean to be the best you can be??  It doesn’t mean you have to be a super mom 26 hours a day.  It doesn’t mean you have to be on for your team 26 hours a day.  It means you set parameters and your boundaries so you have time for YOU.

If you are not personally growing… your business will not grow!!  Let it start with your mind. I always say “Mind your Mind”.  It’s important what we put in there.  Put down the romance and mystery novels and go read a personal development book. You will thank me later!!

Go to work on YOU!!

Personal Growth

Hey Y’all, let’s talk personal growth.

This is so important to me and always has been. You guys know I love anything that will encourage challenge and grow me. So that I can encourage challenge and grow others.

I always say “Go to work twice as hard on yourself as you do on your business”.

Even as a leader, I know that I still need to work on myself.  I get frustrated,  I get angry, I take things personally and I make mistakes.  BUT we ALL make mistakes…and that’s OK.  The key is acknowledging when you do.

There is a certain humbleness and admitting that you made a mistake.  It can be easy to brush-off when someone gets upset at something you said, whether you didn’t think it was wrong or you are chalking it up to perception.  But it is most effective to be quick in admitting when you have made a mistake… apologize for it and learn from it.

Part of making mistakes is learning.  I have made plenty of them in my past and I still make them today.  It’s about learning from them. It’s all a learning process!!

In this business of Speaking, Coaching and Network Marketing,  you are learning everyday.  It doesn’t matter how many years experience you have.  It doesn’t matter how much money you already are making.  It matters that you work harder on YOURSELF than anything else.

When you do that, you become a better person and then it transcends!  

Folks, that’s when you can help more people and be more for those who need you. And THAT’S what it’s all about!!

Today, Let’s humble ourselves and allow healing and growth to take over 🙂

People Helping People

My heart is heavy right now.  We all have friends, family and even market partners that we know are suffering in South Texas right now.  It’s at these times that every little thing you can do will make a difference. There are so many outreach programs out there to help support those communities in need. Plug in somewhere and do something.

But besides the devastation in Houston, people need our help all of the time. We need to make it a priority to do something. Whether you donate $5 or pack your truck full of stuff.  We just had some people donate hair products recently because they were lost in the hurricane.  Regardless of what it is just do something.

That’s it… it’s that simple. Put your positive energy out there and pay it forward.  You create an amazing energy that’s like a domino effect when you pay it forward.

Devastation can happen anywhere at anytime.  If it hits you,  you will be looking for people to step up and do something.  You can be that person for someone in need today!

Everything you do for the good of mankind comes back to you a hundredfold every time!!

I know some of you are already doing what you can and I would love to hear from you.  Let me know how you’re helping or if you have a creative way to raise money or supplies.  Please let me know if you are working on an outreach and what for.  Tag me on social media or leave it in the comments so I can help get the word out too.

Spread the love… just DO SOMETHING 🙂

It’s OK to want more.

Why is there a negative connotation on wanting to be successful and making money?   It’s as if you are wanting too much for yourself and being selfish.  Folks, there’s nothing wrong with going after money and wanting to be successful.

Being successful and having money means you can help more people.

When you are on your life path, and success and money come,  it means you can do more things. It means you can have more of an impact!  Personally, my joy comes from watching others become more successful in achieving their goals.

I recently read two great books. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth by T. Harv Eker and A Complaint Free World by Will Bowen.

Those books had this message:  Get rid of the negative energy. Get rid of the “stinking thinking” and the “negative nellies”.  You are only going to draw more negativity if you stay in that mindset.  Folks,  this is a real thing.  We have been so conditioned to just accepting negativity and negative thoughts all around us.  But the truth is we don’t need to accept that and we have the power to turn it around.

I’ve been working on this for a while BUT I still sometimes get caught up and don’t realize how many negative thoughts I still have creeping into my head. Which is why we always need those constant reminders.  

I encourage you to check these two books out or find a different one that speaks to you. And please tell me about it… I love good book recommendations!

Here is a link to the books.  Absolutely worth the read!!

Remember…You CAN have everything you want,  you DESERVE everything you want!!

 

Can you relate?

Everyone has a “why”, the reason you get up each morning and live the life you live.  At one point in life, I found myself a single mother trying to raise 3 little ones on my own. Putting my children in daycare was not an option (have you seen how much daycare is these days?) I was offered corporate jobs that some consider to pay well but I wanted more. I wanted to design my life!

Can you relate yet?

After years in the corporate world, I thought maybe I’m not cut out for this. Maybe it’s not cut out for me. In the end, you get to know what you want and what you don’t want. Direct sales or the corporate job. I decided I couldn’t sell my soul. I can’t work for a company, I can’t be an employee. I need to do this!

The responsible decision would have been to take the J. O. B. But I knew, deep down in my soul, that if I didn’t give this a shot I would regret it. And you know what? I didn’t look back. And I NEVER have.

Two years later, my team is making 4 million per month. My success only comes from everybody else’s success. You can’t be successful in network marketing without helping others achieve their dreams. If you’re in it just for the money, you’re never going to be successful. Ever, ever, EVER. It is truly a helping hands industry, not one where you’re stepping on anyone’s fingers trying to climb the corporate ladder.

When it comes to your own business — whether you’ve already launched or if you’re still in the whiteboard phase — knowing your “WHY” will help you stay committed to your dream and help others get on board too.

Is your system working?

Is your system in your Network Marketing Business working? Are you providing simple training, teaching, and coaching for your team?

All successful organizations thrive on 2 major factors:

  • A strong pipeline
  • A simple duplicatable system

I talk about this a lot because we are constantly teaching new team members the system. There is quite a bit of monotony in this business because you have to teach people the same thing over and over.  Once you teach them then they teach their teams and new recruits.  Sounds easy right… and theoretically, it is.  The concept of network marketing isn’t difficult but for some reason, people try to make it more complicated than it is. In turn, most will not hold themselves accountable.

The fact is…Yes, this business is simple but it isn’t always easy.  You have to have a working, living, breathing contact list.  Add EVERY single person to this list.  Many professional trainers and speakers in this industry say if you want to build it big and fast you have to talk to 200 people in your first 30 days.  Go back to your list and update it frequently.

You have to pick up the phone! Most people will never pick up the phone…Not even once.  Folks I am here to tell you that if you dont pick up the phone your business will never reach its full potential.  Social media is great… But it will only get you so far. Nothing replaces the voice to voice and face to face conversations.

There is an acronym called IPA’s…Income Producing Activities.   IPA’s are picking up the phone and talking to people, meeting face to face, going to and holding business events. Nothing will ever replace those in this business.  The only thing you want to use email, text or facebook for is to get you the appointment for the 3-way call or get your potential prospect to the next event.  Face to face is SO important.

Bottom line, have these 4 simple steps in your system:

1. Your contact list

2. 3-way calls

3. Opportunity meetings/calls

4. Follow up

Follow a simple system and teach your team to do the same and watch your business explode!!! Grab my Dare to Succeed eBook and start building that empire!

Rinse and Repeat!
