Category Archives: Advice from a Big Hitter


This week I saw a funny meme in social media.

The general message was something like this:

I think January was a 30 day free trial. Who wants to start the year over on Feb 1st?

And I though, That message has some wisdom.

Jeffrey Combs of Golden Mastermind Seminars taught me to realize January 1st is a random day that we agree to start the year. It can come loaded with expectations, both helpful and destructive. And we can restart our business year whenever we want.

Even the US Government allows a corporation to choose the first day of its fiscal year.

So if you didn’t meet your January goals, or you dropped one or more of your New Year’s resolutions, feel free to restart your renewed focus or activities… today or any day.

Be here in one year

That’s the advice from a top performer in our industry.

“All I ask is that you be here in one year.” That’s what she tells new Distributors when they enroll.

I know from experience: you can obtain credibility through your rank and your lifestyle. Another avenue is your longevity with the company.

When you join a business in this profession, everyone is watching your activities and professionalism. They may not tell you, but they are watching.

Some people won’t join you until you have demonstrated your commitment by sticking with one company for several months, a year, or even several years.

Be patient.

Longevity is the credibility available to everyone. Unlike rank and income, it’s completely within your control.

Listen, acknowledge, refocus.

This week I watched a Facebook Live broadcast from industry leader Lisa Grossmann. She taught us a tidbit from a recent industry-wide leadership conference.

I paraphrase her words: When a distributor comes to you expressing fear or concern, be sure to listen and acknowledge their concern. Too often, leaders simply tell people not to worry about that and get back to work! Yes, we want people to concentrate on topics and actions they themselves can control… but brushing off their concerns is disrespectful.

However, as human beings, we all want to feel loved, appreciated, and respected. And a huge tool in meeting those needs is listening and acknowledging what you heard.

By quickly (but not flippantly) acknowledging their concern, we reinforce the respect in the relationship.

Please remember to pause, briefly and sincerely acknowledge the concern, THEN help the distributor refocus their energy toward actions they can control.

Your respect makes the out-of-control world feel safer.

Are you a woman? Or have a woman on your team?

Do you want powerful women in network marketing coaching your team?

The “Most Powerful Women In Network Marketing” conference starts tonight (6pm USA Pacific Zone) and runs through Saturday evening. I will be tuning in over the internet, which is commonly known as “livestreaming.”

Whatever your gender, you can purchase a livestream ticket to see the teaching sessions on your smartphone or computer. Watch the internet broadcast as-it-happens, or watch the recordings for 30 days afterward at your convenience. Your ticket includes both options.

Pick up a few tips for yourself, or pass them along to the female members of your network marketing, direct sales, or party-plan team. There’s even a panel regarding “how to work as a business partner with your spouse.”

“See” you there!

P.S. I receive no compensation of any type from marketing nor from purchases.

Leaders lead. But who is following you?

Industry trainer Randy Gage has done it again.

Sometimes we get so caught up in building our teams of distributors that we forget the longer-term question: who will take the helm when you sell your distributorship or retire?

Regardless if your company’s compensation plan is described as Network Marketing, MLM, Party Plan, or Direct Sales, if you want the fabled “long term residual income, that your children and grandchildren can inherit,” this is an important question.

A better question is, how many leaders are you developing, compared to the number of teammates you have? After all if you can sell your distributorship or retire, so can the person you’re grooming as the “next leader.” And their announcement may take you by surprise.

What should you do?

Check out Randy’s Leadership Series post.

“Dave Ramsey is wrong.”

That title startled me with its boastful claim. I watched the video last week.

Thousands of people follow Ramsey’s advice and praise him highly.

So what’s the problem?

Watch the video and see if you agree.  I do.

Are you de-motivating your team?

Bonus cars, top-performer cruises, black-tie dinners with the CEO.

At our company convention, speakers frequently tell stories of earning and receiving those rewards.

Sometimes I am outright happy for the winner, silently cheering for their success.

At other times I smile through gritted teeth.

What’s the difference?

Here’s some perspective from a respected trainer in our profession.
