Open in December?

The December holiday season is in full swing. Some say this is a rotten time to do presentations “because everyone is busy and stressed.”

But that might be perfect timing.

Think about the times you were thinking about making a change…and procrastinated… UNTIL the pain got stronger than the fear.

Pain prods us to jump into action.

Worrying about the high credit card balances from buying gifts. Frustrated with the “10 lbs to lose… And only 25 to go!” after the holiday parties–and wanting to look fabulous at the class reunion this spring. Sad that the year started with high hopes of a raise at work… and the paycheck reads the same as last December.

Many people live shiny lives of secret desperation. Your polite and confident invitation may be the answer they were silently hoping for.

It was worth getting up early for!

a “legal” entrepreneur

I’m celebrating 21 years since leaving the 9-5 workday world!

squarecrop numerals numbers 21

(here in the USA, legal alcohol drinking age is 21… hence the “legal” reference)

Back in high school and college, I wanted a “safe, secure ob with good benefits, working in a research-and-development lab.” (I actually remember saying those exact words to my older brother!).

Unlike other college classmates and eventually other aerospace engineers on the job, I had no plans to earn an MBA (Master of Business Administration degree). And as I watched my older brother read and talk about business books from the bookstore, I thought he was nuts. It seemed to me… being a business owner was a very risky way to earn a living.

Then I got laid off.

Seeing that first unemployment insurance check in the mail seemed unreal. I never wanted to be in the position of needing government assistance to help pay the bills. And that check didn’t come close to doing so.

I could see how fickle full-time employment could be. And I knew I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life working really hard and wondering if it was enough to dodge the next round of layoffs.

Within 6 months of being laid off, I reinvented myself as a computer software trainer, launching my business and gathering contracts to piece each month’s pay together.

My last part-time employment was in 2002, working for a fast-food restaurant in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. (Lots of insightful business, life, and money blueprint lessons there… I will explore those on future posts)

Living life as an entrepreneur has been an adventure- sometimes frustrating, other times joyful. One thing is for sure: the entrepreneurs I have met are much happier and self-motivated than the employees I worked with.

If I could relive those years, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Could You Afford to Ignore It?

When we received the news about my husband’s parents, we quickly booked travel arrangements and left for Colorado. I used my database to mail 60 greeting cards announcing their passing; otherwise I ignored my business for nearly two weeks.

Things clicked along without me.

For example, 19 orders were requested by my personal client base– all fulfilled without my involvement. They continued to use the product and send it to people in their networks. My sponsor and his assistant willingly were available to coach my team. Customer Service handled calls from my clients.

And yes, the money generated from last month’s activities in my organization arrived like clockwork.

That’s the power of leveraged residual income, built in a network marketing vehicle.

If you had an emergency, could you afford to walk away from your job or traditional business on a moment’s notice? Would it still be thriving when you came back?

What shape are the cannonballs?

Sometimes the technically-trained distributor will “overdesign” their marketing plan.

More detail than necessary.

More rehearsal than necessary.

Reading more books, attending more seminars, listening to more conference calls. (Not ready yet!)

My husband’s friend, Greg Brown, describes the paradox this way:
“Don’t make the cannonballs as round as they CAN be.
Just make them as round as they NEED to be.”

So, what triggers such people to “overprepare”?

I will discuss my observations in a future post!
