Teachers On The Chopping Block

Teachers On The Chopping Block

ChalkboardThe job market in Las Vegas was devastated in 2008. Compared to 1998 when I moved here, it seems like construction workers have all but disappeared. New home building has grinded to a halt these past few years. State education budgets were also hit hard and the carnage hasn’t ended yet. Again I was saddened to read today’s story about more teachers in southern Nevada receiving layoff notices. Read the entire Las Vegas Review-Journal story here: More than 400 teachers receive pink slips…

What will these teachers do now? What would You do? When will the bleeding stop?

When I found myself without a 9-5 job three years ago, I took action. After an unsuccessful job search, I turned to home business. It’s not for everyone. Most don’t make a dime the first year. There’s a wide bridge to cross between employee and business owner. But do teachers have an advantage?

In fact, teaching others is a critical component of building a successful network marketing team. We need more good teachers in the home business industry. With your classroom experience, teachers may have an advantage that most new business owners don’t. My team and company would benefit from all you have to offer. Even better, you can inspire countless others with your success stories.

I feel awful about more teachers losing their jobs in this economy. I pray that they have another source of income until they can find new work. Or start a new career. Many will be forced to move from their homes. Some will find jobs outside Nevada. Others won’t follow the crowd… they will find a better way with network marketing.

Career Employee Embraces Network Marketing

Career Employee Embraces Network Marketing

Cindy McMillanIf you worked for someone else your entire life, you may be skeptical about network marketing, even part-time. As an employee, someone tells you what to do. You do your job and receive regular pay on a routine schedule. It always made sense to most people… until the financial meltdown in 2008 which is still churning in 2012.

Millions of older adults age 50+ find themselves in a precarious position financially. They can’t retire as planned. Some are embracing network marketing as a way to supplement their income. I am one of thousands of career employees who wholeheartedly embraces the network marketing business model. Knowing that you offer true value to others not only increases confidence, it becomes the foundation of your business to everyone’s mutual benefit. The new economy demands innovative ways to build businesses and personal wealth. Cooperation, value, creativity and connecting with others have never been more important to success.

Talking it overNetwork Marketers Meet The Challenge
Network marketing continues to evolve. Today’s leaders are more diverse and sophisticated than ever. If hard-sell, irritating, hype- wielding marketers are not your style, don’t worry. As network marketing profes- sionals grow in numbers, you are certain to find someone who is compatible with your personality. Our collective goal in this industry is to help you succeed in getting the results you deserve.

Paradigm Shift
Network marketing offers a whole new way of looking at things. You can earn a living while working from home. Supplement your income on your schedule. Your business is as close as your laptop and cell phone. Work part-time or full-time. Are you caring for young children or elderly parents? No problem. You have the flexibility you need with network marketing.

Education In Action
Whether you are a career employee or a network marketer, remember that your education never ends. You’ll want to purchase books, training materials, courses and attend live events to improve your skills. And stay informed and up-to-date about latest developments in your industry. That is true for any goal you pursue. Network marketing is no different.

The key is to implement the knowledge, and master it before going off to buy the next new thing before you’re ready. Model marketers who are getting the results you are seeking, but there’s no need to spend yourself out of business or sell your soul. Make adjustments where needed, stay authentic and true to your core beliefs.

Cindy McMillan

With home business, age is not a barrier. Knowledge and action are what matters. Keep moving toward your ideals and financial security.

To your career transformation,

Breaking Through Barriers

Breaking Through Barriers

Breaking through soonA few nights ago I was sitting in my home office sipping on a cold glass of almond milk sprinkled with nutmeg. I had just opened an email from my favorite realtor in Henderson, with a message about the sale of my home that really caught us both off guard… Offer rejected. Three months of paperwork and negotiating down the drain.

Breaking through barriers has been the theme in my life the past few months. I’ll bet you have some barriers of your own that you are trying to break through.

Since I retired 3 years ago, most people want to know how I was able to start a new career over the past few years, and survive the initial drop in income and rejection I experienced. But others had a different question…

They wanted to know what it was like before I started my home business… How did I feel when I realized that after working 35 years for someone else, I hadn’t even come close to my potential, much less financially secure?

Ouch. At first it was a bitter pill to swallow. After all, I can never get those years back and start all over. I’ll never forget when I got in my car to drive home on my last day as a full-time employee.

It felt like the happiest day of my life. I felt free. I was exhilarated. Endless possibilities were waiting for me to explore. But that’s not all. It was also a little scary. How long would my savings last? And then what? I still had a mortgage to pay. It wasn’t like I had PLANNED to retire in 2009. It happened so fast.

Here I was in my fifties with no backup plan. But I wasn’t going to let that spoil the heavenly experience of waking up without the sound of a loud alarm clock. I was grateful for the peaceful mornings and wanted it to last forever.

For decades, it was literally eating me up on the inside–rushing every morning to shower, eating breakfast on the run and driving on the highway for the stressful commute to work.

And then I got off the 9-to-5 treadmill. I spent the last year without new outfits, new shoes, or my favorite gym. I had to give up my hairdresser, manicures and Netflix because I put my meager income into my home business. Marketing systems, websites, books, business cards, live events, memberships, training…

At one point, I had to sell my living room furniture just to eat and keep the lights on. And my house is still on the market. Luckily I found an apartment I can afford once my house is sold.

While working on my business I needed money to pay the bills, and for food and gas, so I started working part-time at the state university. It’s a great job and I enjoy the good people there.

My networking friends were having more success than me, talking about their 5- and 6-figure incomes, their new homes, and the new cars they just earned. With their outgoing, confident personalities, they outperformed me by a lot!

I was the baby boomer who couldn’t keep up, making $250 a week at a part-time job, after working full time all those years. I was 55 years old, and it was humiliating.

Cindy McMillan

But I continued to push forward and I’m glad I did, because my big breakthrough is just around the corner. Why am I telling you this? All successful people struggle in the beginning, they just don’t tell you that!

You are so close. Keep pushing toward your dream. Your big breakthrough is just around the next corner.

To Your Success,

How To Sell More Naturally

How To Sell More Naturally

paint a picture with wordsIf you are new to online sales and marketing, there’s a good chance that you are struggling to make sales. Many people hate the thought of becoming a ‘salesman’ at first. It can feel sooooo unnatural. It takes skill to communicate effectively with potential customers. So how can you sell more naturally?

You Need A System To Create Copy

Using the Internet as a tool with connect with potential customers doesn’t mean you can ignore good salesmanship. You can makes sales naturally using direct mail, video, email marketing, websites and blog posts. But whatever medium you choose, you need a system to create good ads and sales letters. A master copywriter can write one well-written email and make thousands of dollars in one day!

Hmmm… let’s start over. I just got off the phone with Nick J regarding Coffee Shop Millionaire. I was very impressed with his professionalism, and with the sales funnel that led to our conversation. The entire process from capture page to sales page to follow-up phone call was a perfect demonstration of how to sell more naturally. (It all started with good copywriting.)

Even though I didn’t buy today, it was a good experience. There may be other products I will purchase later on.

There’s a good reason copywriting is so important…

Traffic + Conversions = Sales. Here’s a tip from Matt Lloyd (My Online Business Empire) — Start with the conversions part of the equation FIRST. It does no good to drive visitors to a capture page that fails to get contact information. Neither does it matter how much traffic you drive to a sales page that doesn’t convert visitors into new customers. (That’s where good copywriting comes into play.)

When done right, your online capture pages and sales letters do the heavy lifting for you. 24 hours a day/7 days a week. In other words, they pre-sell your interested visitors. When someone decides to make a purchase, they immediately qualify as a hot prospect for related products that you sell. When you follow up on the phone, the conversation flows naturally, easily. Say goodbye to cold calls forever.

Combine good copywriting and marketing with solid telephone followup skills to maximize sales.

Phone skills can make or break your business. Successful online campaigns ultimately lead to a phone call from a representative of the company. Often someone will call after you opt-in for a free eBook or webinar. Other times you’ll receive a call only after you make a purchase. Now you become a prospect for higher-priced products requiring more commitment. It could be a monthly subscription or coaching program. Or a limited time offer for more expensive products.

Imagine that You are the company rep making the call… Are you ready?

Your phone skills will determine whether your customers want to hear from you in the future and buy from you. Offer value in all your communications. Allow customers to get to know, like and trust you. Your initial phone call creates a powerful first impression with your new customer. Be prepared and do your best. You don’t want to end up on your customer’s Do-Not-Call list!

If you want to sell more naturally, combine good copywriting and marketing with strong phone skills. Communicate like a pro and you cannot fail to TRANSFORM your bank account in a big way. Invest the time to learn valuable skills now. It will save you time, money, work, discomfort and worry in the long run, and increase your confidence (and income) tenfold.

Getting Back On Track

Getting Back On Track

Off the trailYou probably already know that one of the toughest aspects of running your own home business is establishing a routine… and sticking to it. So how do you get back ON track when you get OFF track?

Here’s what I mean. The past month I’ve been working part-time at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). At the same time I sold my home, now in escrow, and we close in two weeks. And that’s not all. I enrolled in an online course on copywriting, a skill that every professional marketer needs.

So I have really gotten off track with posting to my blog and with other marketing activities. It happens. The point is to recognize it and focus on getting back on track. Every new marketer goes through a slowdown. Everyone struggles in the beginning. But successful people are both persistent and disciplined.

And did I mention that the No Excuses 3 Summit starts tomorrow in Las Vegas! A sold out, jam-packed live event with all of the top internet marketers together in one place. Live Streaming, April 20-22 Wow!

3 Steps To Get Back On Track

  1. Review your goals and get clear. Energize your intention with positive thoughts and feelings
  2. Notice any resistance and use it to reclaim your power
  3. Persist toward your vision and take ACTION now

Never speak or think about the possibility of failure. Make adjustments if you need to, learn from people who are getting results, and implement changes now. Sounds easy, but sadly most people will not stay on track toward their purpose. Successful people will persist.

NOW is the perfect time to map out a marketing plan for your business. Make 2012 your best year ever!

More Time for Elderly Parents and Kids

More Time for Elderly Parents and Kids:
Baby Boomers Feeling Squeezed

Contemplating changeMy generation is feeling squeezed. We’re caring for elderly parents and making time for teenagers and young grandchildren and nieces and nephews. We need more time.

A few days ago my sister called me from Maryland at 10:30 on a rainy Sunday night. She was finally getting some “me” time. She never missed her foster son’s sports events, and Sunday was no exception. That involved driving cross town to pick him up, attending the game, and of course driving him back home in the rain.

Our 80-year-old mother called to ask my sister to bring her some dinner. At a specific time. This request even though my wonderful nephew, his wife and 2-year-old daughter live with my mother. But he and his wife had plans, so they wouldn’t be home to get her dinner. Of course, my sister was with her foster son at his game. Since my mother wanted her meal at a certain time, my sister took him with her for the 30-mile drive to my mom’s house.

So she arrives at my mother’s house with her dinner, with E in tow. My nephew and his wife promptly ask her to watch their 2-year-old daughter while they go out. My sister graciously agrees. She’s caring for our 80-year-old mother, an adorable 2-year-old girl, and her teenage foster son is there too. (Wish I was there with you.)

My sister works 70-hour weeks at her state government job. Like many states around the country, the past 3 years brought salary reductions and required furlough days. She needs more time. Like many Baby Boomers, the clock is ticking on retirement and most need more money.

When my sister called at 10:30 that night and told me about her day, and that she finally had some “me” time, I just wanted to cry. When she is not at work, she drives 60 miles round trip to visit my mother, take her to her doctor’s appointments, her hair appointments and often take her meals. My nephew and his wife each have jobs, and are raising a young child. They need more time too.

I talk to my mother several times a week on the phone. But I live 2400 miles away. I intend a future when the income from my home business will allow me to fly back East more often. And spend more time with my mother. And help my sister. And play with my great-niece. And visit with the rest of my family. I intend to never worry about money again.

So many Americans from the Baby Boomer generation born between 1946-1955 and 1956-1964 (over 75 million people) are challenged by lack of time and under intense pressure to shore up their finances for retirement. Not enough time and money.

My generation needs more time to care for elderly parents. More time to enjoy nieces, nephews and grandchildren. More money to put away for retirement. More money to ENJOY retirement!

Those are just some of the reasons why I own a home business. I keep my mind active learning new skills and continually experience a sense of accomplishment. Additional income and time flexibility make working my business inspiring! My team and company provide a wealth of success training to fit my schedule. Taking responsibility for my future has never felt so good as it does now.

When I started my home business 17 months ago, I made a commitment to learn new skills. I struggled. In the beginning, you will struggle too. Until you get the gist of things. Would it be worth it, if you could release that time-sucking high stress 70-hours-a-week job? Only you can decide.

Lord, I hope my sister decides to join me one day and start a home business of her own. In her spare time.

Can’t Retire? How Home Business Can Help

Can’t Retire? How Home Business Can Help

Can't retire If you’re like 100 million older Americans who can’t retire, a home business can help. Owning a home business is not easy, but the financial reward is well worth the commitment. Retiring is more a lifestyle than an age. A home business gives you the chance to live life YOUR way. When you are free from financial worry, you can spend your time doing the things that are important to you and the people you care about. A profitable home business can help you retire happier.

Let’s face it, no one should be broke after working 35 years. Yet for many it’s a fact of life. It’s shockingly disappointing to know that you bought into the trap of giving 35 years of your life to an employer just so that you can pay the rent and utilities! Without meticulous planning, there’s no pot of gold at the end, and you can NEVER get the time back. No one should be forced to choose between food and gasoline, or electricity and car insurance. Don’t let it happen to you.

Even more devastating, many people don’t recover from the loss of confidence. They give up hope of ever achieving their dreams.

When I retired, I knew I needed more income to live comfortably and take nice vacations. Jobs were hard to come by, but I never stopped working — I started a home business. I learned a whole new set of skills and even use some of those skills at the local university. The time after I retired was not wasted. On the contrary, I’ve learned new ways to earn income, have more time for hiking, making fun new friends, and found a home business that inspires me and helps people earn extra income. How bad can that be? I’m enjoying the best years ever!

Instead of falling into despair, do something about your financial future. Regain your liberty while working with inspiring leaders and interesting people. Starting a home business can be the difference between giving up hope of ever retiring and taking positive steps to get control of your financial destiny. Surround yourself with upbeat successful people who are living the lifestyle of their dreams and learn from them. That’s what I did. And I want to tell as many people as I can that yes, there are solutions.

If your confidence has taken a hit in today’s job market, don’t worry. You may be down, but it’s not over. Get your retirement goals back on track with a home business. Listen to your inner CEO.

Network Marketing Expert Shares Proven Phone Scripts

Phone scriptsNow that you have people to talk to about your network marketing business, do you have proven phone scripts, or do you sound like a fool? Network marketing is unique in that the most effective way to build a sales organization involves talking to people on the phone. It’s important to develop effective phone skills.

If you’re like me when I first started, you may have done everything you could to avoid picking up the phone. Procrastinating, making excuses, working on your website, even doing laundry — anything to put off calling prospects about your product or service!

Get the cure. Develop confidence. Speak to potential customers and distributors like a pro.

If you knew what the 7-figure earners said on the phone, how much would that be worth to you? A lot, wouldn’t it?

With over 21 years of proven field experience, he understands the struggles of inexperienced newcomers to the industry.

Network Marketing Downline Builder

Network Marketing Downline Builder

Building a new structureNeed help building your network marketing downline? What is the best downline builder to use? Does a network marketing downline builder even exist? Well, I think you already know there are DOZENS of "downline builders" for your network marketing business. But there is no one magic bullet -- except YOU. More and more people are turning to network marketing to regain liberty through hard work and entrepreneurship. Before you become a successful downline builder, you have to believe you can do it!

Become A Leader
First, let's start with 7 traits of a network marketing leader (from The Wave 4 Way to Building Your Downline):

  1. Drive
  2. Persistence
  3. Teachability
  4. Thick Skin
  5. Positive Attitude
  6. Compassion
  7. Vision

Build A Team
Second, let's take a closer look at the first core strategy of MLM leadership -- build a team. Building a winning team (your downline) is key to network marketing success. You want to recruit someone in your downline who has "impressive resources, contacts, energy and sales talent" with the initiative to build a profitable organization beneath you.

Build a teamSo where do you find the big fish? Remember to make sure they can find you! Educate yourself, promote your brand, share your knowledge. Be persistent, show your business presentation to at least 5 people a day, and you cannot fail to attract quality people into your downline. If you feel that you are surrounded by people who don't share your passion and drive, keep searching until you find your key leaders.

Prospecting Ideas
Here are just a few ways to build your network marketing downline. The list is endless...

  • Host regular webinars
  • Publish articles and press releases, online and offline
  • Meetup.com is a great way to meet new people. Don't limit yourself to business groups, either. You can meet people with similar interests like art, hiking, crafts, collecting, cycling, real estate, boating, fitness, etc.
  • Host seminars about network marketing
  • Blog daily
  • Build networks on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
  • Sell your marketing system
  • Sell educational information for home business owners
  • Mail postcards or sales letters to your target market
  • Host a radio show
  • Join online forums
  • Connect with prospects on YouTube
  • Provide useful information with e-newsletters
  • Place classified ads, online and offline
  • Wear buttons and tee-shirts at live events
  • Contact sales executives, insurance agents, stockbrokers, real estate agents, car salesmen, and property managers. These are people with access to loads of contacts
  • Distribute sales aids like CDs or DVDs, brochures, company magazines, promotional calendars
  • Host weekly teleconferences
  • Host local opportunity meetings

Invest In Your Education
Over the past 18 months, I've come across 60 or more MLM companies, marketing tools, e-books and courses. You will soon find out there is no easy way or shortcut to building your business. But there are smarter ways to get the job done.

Building step by stepLearn how to spend your time only with people who are actually interested in what you have to offer. And more importantly, earn income even if someone does not join your network marketing company. Many of your new people will have little or no experience as network marketing downline builders. Just like any other franchise owner, you want all team members to get proper basic training and speak the same language.

** Make sure everyone on your team registers for their free 10-day bootcamp Attraction Marketing Formula and learns the principles taught in the bootcamp.

If your potential team members will take this one baby step, there's a better chance they will become leaders on your team. Some will drop out, some will buy the products and not enroll anyone, and an elite few will become your key leaders. Persist until you find them no matter how long it takes! Ask any 6- or 7-figure MLM leader and they'll tell you: The rewards of a becoming successful network marketing downline builder are well worth the effort.
