You Can’t Build a Business Without It

Relationships must be built on trust.

trustworthy

Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. That’s the definition I Googled.

I got a message in my inbox today with the subject line: You’ll have a HARD TIME selling and recruiting without THIS…

That got my attention. But I opened the email because I trusted the sender. Point taken!

The email talked about how important it is to build trust. And I have been thinking about that all day.

Do you agree that we need to have a basis of trust with our audience. They are watching us and if we want to connect with them we need to be trust worthy.

Funny thing about trust. It is easier to identify the absence of trust. I had a hard time picking a picture to demonstrate trust. There were too many clichés. That lead to thinking about what it takes to gain trust.

What do you need to do to gain trust? You can’t just say you are trustworthy. You must live it.

Here are three simple ways to live trustworthiness.

  1. Be reliable.

Do what you say you will do!

Did you drive two hours not-reliablein bad weather to keep an appointment and the other person stayed home?

You don’t have to write it on your hand.

You live trustworthiness.

Your friends will not react this way when your name is mentioned.

  1. Be Consistent

Do your friends know how you will treat them? Do you treat those who will not buy, the same way you do those who will? Do you behave the same way you do when you are tired as when you feel great?consistent

You don’t have to write it on your hand.

You live trustworthiness.

Your friends will not react this way when your name is mentioned.

  1. Be Honest

You are someone who tells it like it is. Your friends know that when you say something is great, it is. They have seen you lose a sale rather than lie to keep it.

You don’t have to whonestrite it on your hand.

You live trustworthiness.

Your friends will not react this way when your name is mentioned.

.

Being reliable, consistent, and honest is hard, isn’t it? But, I think you will agree that being trustworthy pays off in big ways.

If you keep those hard appointments, you will be there for the one with your best business partner.

If you continue to treat all people well in every situation, you will surround yourself with people who behave the same way.

If you speak honestly at every opportunity, you will gain more sales than you will lose.

Thanksgiving Dinner

1478009670-54ead6c039511-thanksgiving-retro-food-1114-xln

The holiday feast dates back to November 1621, when the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians gathered at Plymouth for an autumn harvest celebration, an event regarded as America’s “first Thanksgiving.”

While no records exist of the exact bill of fare, the Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow noted in his journal that the colony’s governor, William Bradford, sent four men on a “fowling” mission in preparation for the three-day event. Wild—but not domestic—turkey was indeed plentiful in the region and a common food source for both English settlers and Native Americans. But it is just as likely that the fowling party returned with other birds we know the colonists regularly consumed, such as ducks, geese and swans. Instead of bread-based stuffing, herbs, onions or nuts might have been added to the birds for extra flavor.

I googled Thanksgiving dinner menu. Here are some of the results:

From Country Living:

  • Perfect Roast Turkey.
  • Cheese Grits and Corn Pudding.
  • Roasted Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline.
  • Marvin Woods’s Brussels Sprouts, Red Pepper, and Avocado Salad.
  • Potato and Celery Root Gratin.
  • Green Beans with Bacon.
  • Cracked Pepper Dinner Rolls.
  • Pumpkin Pie with Walnut Crust.

I will pass on the grits but the pumpkin pie with walnut crust sounds tempting.

From the Smithsonian Institute a copy of the Thanksgiving Dinner Menu for the Civilian Conservation Corp. in 1935:

53eaf03bb7fd89c9694a4e19b84a01e5

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men from relief families as part of the New Deal.

I think this menu must have seemed very plentiful in the days of the depression. No family for the men to be with. There must have been a bittersweet quality about the meal. Note the cigarettes on the menu.

From http://dish.allrecipes.com/thanksgiving-menus-for-beginners-to-experts/ 

Here is a chart of an easy Thanksgiving menu to an advanced Thanksgiving menu.

The year my ex and I separated, the kids and I got the flu just before Thanksgiving. We were acutely feeling the loss of a sense family and so having a “traditional family” dinner wasn’t appealing. Plus none of us had regained our appetites. So we had fondue for Thanksgiving dinner.

Fondue had always been a favorite. It was easy. And maybe the absence of a family member wasn’t felt quite as much.

This year Mom and I will be hosting my youngest sister and her husband. We will be roasting a turkey breast. The turkey will be accompanied by a winter squash casserole, potatoes and gravy, salad greens with raspberry walnut dressing, green beans, pumpkin and cherry pies. I have fixings for a punch but not sure I want to mess with it.

I think we may not get out the china and silver. Everyday table ware and paper plates will keep it simple. After all it isn’t what we eat. It is who we share our meal with.

May you enjoy your meal with loved ones.

May you know true thankfulness which is the best holiday seasoning ever.

 

 

 

I Have A Story That Will Blow You Away…

And more importantly, show you how to finally have success in your business WITHOUT the usual hustle and bustle… rejection… and the struggle almost everyone faces.

ferny

Hi, my name is Ferny Ceballos.

I’m a 7-figure earner and marketing specialist with Thousands of students around the world. Many of them have gone on to produce 6-Figure, 7-Figure and even 8-Figure incomes in network marketing, internet marketing and direct sales.

I’ve personally worked one-on-one with some of the TOP earners and industry leaders. But I haven’t come across anyone quite like Julie Burke.

A few months ago I met Julie and was very impressed with her astonishing results.

In less than 4 years Julie leaped to the top of her company… built a huge team of 8,300 people… and made over $750,000 in commissions, overrides and bonuses.

But after revealing some of the details on HOW she built her business, my jaw hit the floor.

I bet you haven’t seen too many people climb to the top of the leaders board of ANY network marketing company…

  • Without chasing friends, family and neighbors.
  • Without calling a single person.
  • Without any kind of advertising, neither online or offline.
  • And without even having a website.

Julie’s never put together her ‘warm market list.’ Hasn’t made a single cold call. She didn’t struggle a day (which is unheard of in our business)… as a matter of fact… she had 45 people REACH OUT TO HER in the first 12 days of her network marketing career. And…

Made $2,300 In the First Month

Ready to register? Click here. 

fb_img_1479747852200Julie skipped chasing friends and family… doing home parties… dragging people to meetings… and other such shenanigans. She was a Six-Figure earner just 12 months later. Building her entire business and a very healthy multi-Six Figure residual income with super effective and very straightforward Social Media tactics… without any kind of gimmicks.

Now here’s what’s even more amazing. Her system works so well and is so simple to implement, that anyone who can commit to just 60 minutes a day and follow some simple instructions can have success with it.

And before I give you all the nitty gritty details, I want to introduce you to a few of her students…

Meet Lisa Koch.

Lisa was a full-time mortgage broker, and had very mediocre results after doing network marketing for about 4 years. It quickly changed once she started working with Julie.

Here’s what happened next…

I Replaced My Full Time Income At The Bank In 5 Months!

“Within 5 months of linking arms with Julie, utilizing her strategies, and taking persistent intentional effort daily, I was able to replace my full time income at the bank. Within the next year, it doubled. The following year it quadrupled, and continues to grow today.
Julie’s social media methods are simple, straightforward, and they work!”

Lisa Koch
– Network Marketing Professional and Empowerment Coach

Next, meet Sara Scanlon.

Sara is a certified nutritionist and a stay-at-home mom with limited time to build her network marketing business. Shortly after working with Julie, her team growth EXPLODED.

These Strategies Were The Missing Link I Needed…

“Julie gave me the strategies I needed to not only brand myself online, but grow my Network Marketing business from a team of 500 to over 2,000 people in a short amount of time. All with Facebook and social media. These strategies were the missing link I needed. Now, as a global coach I can help people whether they’re in my backyard or halfway around the world, thanks to Julie!”

– Lifestyle Coach and Network Marketing Professional

There’s one more person I’d like you to meet… Heather Glaze.

Heather is a stay-at-home mom with 3 kids who are home schooled. Finding enough time to do this business was a challenge, and Heather needed a way to leverage the little time she had.

I Went From 50 Facebook Fans To Over 2,200 In Just Weeks…

“As a busy Mom who home schools her children, I was looking for ways to brand myself and learn how I can attract more people with Facebook. Within a few weeks of working with Julie, my Facebook fan page exploded from 50 followers to over 2,200 fans. Julie’s social media strategies are priceless and they work!”

Heather Glaze
– Stay-At-Home Mom, Network Marketing Professional

After seeing the success of just some of her students, and the rapid results of using these strategies, I talked Julie into putting together a special training, revealing the nuts and bolts of the entire system.

We’re calling it Social Media Recruiter. A complete step-by-step blueprint ANYONE can use to recruit and explode their network marketing business with social media.

And for the first time ever, Julie will be teaching the entire system LIVE, this Friday, November 25th at 1pm Eastern Time. (Don’t worry, it will be recorded)

You’ll get your hands on Julie’s bulletproof social media domination strategy. A simple 6 step formula for connecting with the right people… rapidly expanding your network… and… For all the info click here.

Thanksgiving Remembered

henrydavidthoreau676241

Why do you suppose that many people call tomorrow’s holiday Turkey Day?

For one thing, many people won’t even eat turkey. For sure the vegans won’t. But some people will have beef or duck or ham or salmon or spaghetti or pig’s head. I’m not sure about the last item. But Walmart had six or seven pig’s heads in their freezer case.

Back to possible answers to my question.

Maybe people don’t feel thankful. But how could that be? How could that be in this country? We are the most blessed country on earth. Despite the last election. Despite the growing number of homeless. Despite the troubling number of children who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Despite the deaths.

You know that we have plenty of difficult issues festering in America but compared to what our ancestors faced we have it good. Compared to what other parts of the world are dealing with we have it wonderful.

I remember living in post-civil war Spain in the early 1960’s. I saw people who considered my family rich. We weren’t. Not by American standards. I think sometimes my mother ran out of money before she ran out of month. But we were rich in so many ways.We hired a Spanish maid. Until we got into a house that would hold our family, we rented two apartments. We were rich by Spanish standards at that time.

As a non-profit director of a ministry that received donations for our clients I saw further proof of our riches. When expectant mothers came in for supplies for their babies, I noticed that they looked for matching items with a specific theme. I knew that there were mothers in other parts of the world that didn’t expect matching or a theme. They wanted warmth and protection for their child.

We are a bit like Max, our little blessing of a Chihuahua. He has a warm home with two women with ample laps who lavish love on him. He has a huge back yard that is all his. The house is pretty much his as well. He has many human and dog friends who come visit frequently. But right now, he is making the most pitiful sounds. He is half growling and half crying. The dogs next door are out and he wants to be out with them. So, he feels like he is not blessed. At this moment, he is not thankful.

Or maybe Thanksgiving lost its name because some TV or radio announcer got clever one year and coined Turkey Day. We were amused and adopted it. Maybe it rolled off our tongue a little bit easier. We are fond of turning everything into an acronym or label.

Or maybe in our era of discounting the value of our heritage Thanksgiving Day just wasn’t very palatable. Turkey Day was so much easier to swallow.

Do we struggle with the picture of a community that had so much less than we have today kneeling to Almighty God in Thanksgiving?

Do we struggle with the picture of a community of Native Americans helping a community of immigrant Americans?

Do we struggle with being thankful even though we don’t have what we want?

I am reminded of one of my ancestors who arrived on the Concord in the 1600’s. He was part of 13 families who joined William Penn to establish German Town. They faced extreme hardship. But they left a continent where religious freedom and opportunity to prosper was lacking. They must have been filled with thanksgiving for the relatively large tracts of land they would struggle to develop and maintain. They faced adversity that is difficult for you and me to relate to. You and I face adversity that would be difficult for them to relate to. They would be clueless. You and I are clueless.

We would be clueless unless we remember Thanksgiving.

I have a friend who is struggling with keeping her health while caring for injured and sick adult children. Her daughter was near death a short time ago. Now my friend reports of her daughter’s miraculous recovery. My friend’s son faces surgery. And she is struggling physically no doubt because of the strain of the last few months. I don’t believe that this year she is clueless. She is thankful for her family. She is thankful for their health. She is thankful.

I have a friend who is packing up her house to move across the country tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day. She will be leaving precious grandchildren to care for a dear mother. I don’t believe that this year she is clueless. She is thankful for modern technology that will keep the grandchildren close. She is thankful for her supportive husband. She is thankful that most of us won’t be on the roads tomorrow. She is thankful that she can care for her mother. She is thankful.

You have similar stories. We aren’t always clueless. Let’s not be clueless this year.

Let us be thankful.

 

 

 

 

 

If you are comfortable selling, they will be comfortable buying!

llp_connie_11

Don’t you hate it when you realize that you have just made your best friend uncomfortable because you have invited her – again – to look at your product?

To me it is worse than having her say no.

I was called to network marketing over six years ago, when I was leaving the nonprofit organization that I loved, to care for my mother.

I had been exposed to network marketing for years before and although I even had tried starting my own “party plan” company to market my Cottage Crafts and Creations company, I was not comfortable with network marketing.

My discomfort was the worst obstacle to building my business.

I didn’t quit. I kept going to the events. My belief grew. My network marketing skills grew. And I became less uncomfortable and more successful.

Last year I was getting good at sharing. I was ready to move forward and then Mom’s health needs changed my ability to do the business. I was spending my days and nights with Mom in a nursing care center. She did go home after a month and a half but I then needed to stay home with her. My ability to work my business changed dramatically.

At that time, I discovered internet marketing. At first, I saw potential for me to earn money with my writing. At the time, I didn’t realize it would also be the best tool for me to build my network marketing business.

And I started a journey towards where I am today. I have learned and embraced using attraction marketing.

It has transformed the way I interact with people both in my business and personal relationships.

And on Black Friday I will be learning the ultimate tool for network marketers who want or need to use the internet and specifically the social media to build their business.

So back to my subject line. If you are comfortable selling, they will be comfortable buying.

How are you most comfortable sharing/selling your business and products?

Are you still looking for that method?

Network marketing has evolved over the decades. And that is a good thing.

Now, Julie Burke, a pioneer in using the social media to recruit and teach her team to duplicate what she does will be sharing her method and skill sets with you.

Julie built her network marketing business:

  • Without chasing friends, family, and neighbors.
  • Without calling a single person.
  • Without any kind of advertising, neither online or offline.
  • And without even having a website.

Julie’s never put together her ‘warm market list.’ Hasn’t made a single cold call. She didn’t struggle a day (which is unheard of in our business) … in fact… she had 45 people REACH OUT TO HER in the first 12 days of her network marketing career. And…

Made $2,300 In the First Month

But the most important fact for you and I is that Julie was able to teach her downline to do what she did.

What Julie does is duplicatable. That is key for network marketers, won’t you agree?

You have learned from dynamic and successful network marketers what they did but you weren’t comfortable doing it yourself. And if you aren’t comfortable your friends and family won’t be comfortable.

Now you can have another tool in your network marketing toolbox.

Julie Burke will be teaching us how she did it and how we can teach our teams to do it.

The training is available to you for the first time and it will be live. That means you can ask Julie your questions.

You can purchase the training for half the price that it will be offered for after midnight on Cyber Monday. It will still be available for purchase but you will pay twice the price.

You have until Friday, November 25th, before 1 p.m. EST to purchase and register for the live training. (But don’t wait until the last minute!)

You have until Monday, November 27th, at midnight EST to purchase the recorded training at the discounted price. Either way you will have access to the recording so that you can reference it again.

You don’t want to miss this.

Here is the link for all the information.

https://csuarez.elitemarketingpro.com/go/smr-special

Oh, by the way. If you purchase the training during this special introductory period, 40% of the purchase will go to Heifer International.

Heifer International is a charity organization working to end hunger and poverty around the world by providing livestock and training to struggling communities.

And here is my disclaimer: I am an affiliate of Elite Marketing Pro and will receive part of the purchase price for the Social Media Recruiter training. And you are an intelligent person. You know that we should not expect to have Julie Burke’s results. I don’t know about you but I will be glad for just being able to continue to work my business from home where I can care for my Mom. I will be glad to have another tool in my toolbox that I can comfortably share a great company and awesome products. I will be glad to be able to duplicate this with my business team.

How about you?

How to Be Rich

Would you agree that being rich is more important than getting rich?

Did you know that if you are making $37,000 or more you are in the top 10 per cent of the world’s population?

If you are making $74,000 or more you are in the top 1 per cent of the world’s population.

But you could well fall into one of those categories and tell me that you don’t feel rich, couldn’t you?

Rich is a moving target. It can’t be easily defined. Or can it?

Here is a video of a sermon I heard when I visited my daughter’s church on Sunday.

Pastor Keith shares a lot of wisdom in the 40 minutes of this video. I challenge you to forget your busy schedule and sit down and listen to it all the way through.

Then let’s talk about it. Reach me here.
