Yes, some of those ads are straight crap. Not all of it is Bull-longa, however, we are now gun shy that so many are fake ads or leading you down a miss leading path.
No Lottery Lifestyle
There’s not a lottery lifestyle where you rake in the cash then sit back and drink adult drinks all day by the pool. Those images are AFTER the hard work has been put in and you have fewer hours you have to put in because you are spending it with high-quality leads.
It’s hard work when you are cold calling people who really could care less what you have to say. Generating leads that are excited for you to call them, and sometimes they are even shocked a real person has called, now that is when it gets fun!
Seasoned marketers are people who are generating 25-100 leads a day. Which is totally possible with the systems we have in place. I am averaging 6-10 a day that I actually speak with and see what they have in mind for business or product. Then I know which system to share with them.
Not everyone who is looking for good products wants to sell it. They want to use it. They may tell their mom, sister or brother but that doesn’t mean they want to become sellers. If you press those people to sell they will walk away from you annoyed plus… you lose them as a good customer. Most marketers miss the point of not just what a customer wants in a product but who they know inside their own network (sound familiar? Network marketing)
Determine the Need
The first question I will ask is what were you looking for when they came to the website?…. Pause… and Listen
(I know this is really the strange part)
If they are looking for something to help them sleep at night why would I go off on a tangent about building a dream business when all they want to do is have a good night sleep and be able to dream about lollipop pops.
Connect with the Lead
People know within 30 seconds if you are about to switch lanes in the conversation. They also know if you are sincere or not with the information you are giving them. I had a person I knew who could not carry on a normal conversation because she was too busy talking. Very little listening. She could not figure out why she could not get new customers.
I don’t want to talk business with someone who wants a product. The conversation goes south really fast and you will also lose the customer.
People like to talk about themselves… listen… they will tell you what they are looking for and what their pain points are.
In the beginning of this wild ride called network marketing, I would attend events and wonder how did those people get on those stages. They talked about the freedom lifestyle and some of it totally sounded like bull hockey to me.
Like big glamor stories that were too good to be true and then I found myself sitting on Ray Higdon’s stage telling my story. I lived all the lumps and bumps it took to get this far. Not that I expected it to be a paved highway from there but I knew I was headed in a solid direction.
There are some hard stories that people have come through to get to the next stage of business. I wrote a book and told my story plus how I built my business. (Click to read it now)
The laptop lifestyle comes with a price. Whether it was to have the extra $500 or $5000 it is possible. It has a large learning curve that is quite the journey. What I have learned is not what I started out looking for. This journey we call business takes you on a self-discovery that only you can experience to share with others.
There is no overnight success. Those people worked in the dark for a very long time before the lights finally got to shine in their corner.
You have skills to learn

Did you know that there are MORE people who need an extra $500 a month than a million? Read that again… I didn’t say they didn’t want a million but they needed an extra $500. Let’s teach more people to get to reach the small goals before we start talking about the over-sized goals in the beginning. I was a single mom when I started out in business. $500 would have changed how I lived. I am now prepared to help you have a $500 month.
