6 Words to NEVER Use When Talking About Your Network Marketing Opportunity
When you are talking to people about your network marketing opportunity there are 6 words and phrases that you never want to use, and yet I hear people over and over again using them. Let me help you save some time and energy and tell you what they are so your prospects aren’t running away from you.
These words and phrases are fine to use when talking to other people on your team or in your company or others in the industry, but when you use them with prospects you will likely turn them off.
How to Qualify a Prospect for Your Network Marketing Business
When talking to people about your network marketing business, it’s critical that you know how to qualify them. For one thing, you don’t want to waste your precious time with the wrong people. Every minute you spend speaking to unqualified prospects is another minute you are not spending with your family or doing something else. And for another, you don’t want just anyone in your business.

Today’s message is about overcoming fears and just going for it whether in your home business or in your personal life. Sometimes things happen in life that cause you to be afraid and you can’t let that get the best of you.
In this video I’m on a one-man roller coaster going up a mountainside in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and once you get to the top, it’s a free-fall to the bottom and you can go really fast. There’s a little hand-brake, but I can’t say I had full faith in it, or that I had much more faith in the narrow track I was on.
I was a little afraid, more than a little afraid, to go down that mountainside, but I faced that fear anyway. Read the rest of this entry
How to Have a Productive Day in Your Home Business: 2 Easy Tips
The one thing that can kill people’s chance of success as entrepreneurs is their bad habits, and it’s critical that you know how to have a productive day in your home business, and then actually stick to it!! As entrepreneurs, we are in control of our own schedules. It is not the responsibility of your sponsor, your Upline, your company leadership or your peers, for you to have a productive day in your home business.
Here are a couple tips for you to start seeing more dollars in your bank account.
Tip #1 To Have a Productive Day in Home Business
Every night before you go to sleep, write out what you want to get done for your business the next day. And put a star next to the 2 most important things that you want to get done, more than anything.
You might even want to keep your list next to your bed at night, so that if you think of something during your sleep, you can roll over, write it down and then go right back to sleep. (It will actually help you sleep more soundly).
Then the next day, do the things that you wrote out on your list. And for the 2 most important items, do your best to get them done before 11 am. That way, if other distractions DO get in your way during the day, then at LEAST you’ve done the 2 most important things, and you can still say you had a productive day in your home business.
I know personally, that for me, the nights that I write out what I want to get done the next day, I always have a productive day in my home business, but the nights that I don’t do this simple little task, then I almost always do not have a productive day.
The truth is that as home business owners, it is super easy to get distracted when you sit down to work on your home business. There are some things that will come up in your day, that at first glance you might think are distractions, but they are not. For example, caring for someone in your family (like a sick child, or aging parent or grandparent), or going to your child’s soccer game or school event. Those are GOOD things for you to be doing. They are Life events that give our lives meaning and purpose. And these things are things that should be scheduled into your day.
The distractions I’m talking about are things that come up during the time you’ve set aside to work your home business. Distractions like:
taking phone calls unrelated to business during your business hours
checking email going through Facebook or other social media (unless it’s specifically to message people for prospecting)
doing the laundry
walking the dog
feeding the dog
All those “distractions” can be taken care of during the day, but don’t do it during the hours you’ve set aside for your business.
Tip #2 to Have a Productive Day in Home Business
Mark off a block of time in your calendar that you are dedicating to your business for that next day, and do not let any distractions, like the ones listed above, get in the way.
If you set aside 1-4 pm as the time to work your home business, then make sure you are sitting down, with your computer, phone, paper and whatever you need to work your business, and do not let other unnecessary distractions get in your way.
It might help to actually pretend that you are in an office environment away from home. If you were in a corporate environment, you probably wouldn’t get up from your desk to go feed the dog or do some laundry, right? So, do that at home.
I hope this information has been helpful. There are many ways to increase productivity for your home business, but I have given you just 2 very important ones, that even if you implemented just these, you will see big changes in your success rate and in your wallet.

How to Follow Up When Prospects Don’t Return Phone Calls or Messages
So, how do you follow up with prospects when they don’t return your phone calls or messages on text or on Facebook? Are you looking for some MLM tips for what you say next? If you find yourself in this situation, it’s like someone ignoring you with the “Talk to the hand” gesture. This picture is funny to me; it’s my niece and my son and she was basically saying to him to stop talking about whatever it was he was talking about. He was annoying her. And he responded by jokingly pretending he’d bite her hand off.
What you don’t want to be is annoying to your prospects, especially when your prospects are friends and family. All too often, this happens to people in home business. When you share your business “too much” this might happen to you. Here are some MLM tips to help you get over this hump in your business. Read the rest of this entry
When Is the Best Time to Talk to Friends and Family About Your Network Marketing Business?
Typically, when you start out in any network marketing business, your company’s leaders and your sponsor will tell you to start growing your business by talking to friends and family first. But for some people, that may actually NOT be a good idea.
For the person who is extremely passionate about what they are doing, and full of confidence and certainty and direction of where they want to go with their business, then talking to friends and family first could make complete sense. It’s because you are starting with your own personal network. And you will expand out to their networks and continue to grow and expand through their networks, and their network’s networks and so on.

Are you Obsessed with your home business? It could be a good thing, but not necessarily. What else are you so obsessed about in your life? Is it work, business, even exercise, or other things that can get in the way of “life.”
An obsession is not always a good thing, and sometimes something that starts out good, positive and healthy can flip on you. It happened to me in the past few years trying to find the right home business. It took me a few businesses before I found the one that worked best for me. It also meant that I did a tremendous amount of personal growth, which I loved. I discovered that as I had more growth, and learned more and met some really fantastic people, that I continued to want to learn and learn and grow and improve and it went to the point that I think I became obsessed with it. I was also obsessed with trying to “figure it all out” by learning how to prospect, recruit and close sales. Read the rest of this entry
Who Exactly Are You Recruiting into Your Home Business?
As you are building your home business it’s important to think twice about who exactly you are recruiting. And I mean something much more important than what category of people you are recruiting (for example, recruiting professionals, cold calls, calling leads, friends, family, business cards you pick up around town, etc).
Challenges and Obstacles: Don’t Give Up! Look for the Lesson!
We will all have challenges and obstacles as we build a home business that at times will make us want to give up. We all have excuses for why we cannot move forward in life. And every single one of us will face challenges along the way. The question is, how are you going to handle it? I can guarantee you, as soon as you commit to achieving a goal, there will be roadblocks thrown up in your way; they could be related to your health, family, friends, business or the particular goal itself. Those obstacles will help to shape you, define you and refine you into being the person you Read the rest of this entry
