How and Why to Make a Video for Your MLM Business

Videos are a great way to build a network marketing team, however, I like most of us struggle to do them! Very few of us like seeing ourselves on camera and we try to make things “perfect”.  However, sometimes you just have to push past what makes you uncomfortable and do what will reach the widest audience. After all, the field of video marketing is not going anywhere but up.  It’s necessary if you want to generate more leads in a shorter period of time. In this week’s blog, I will provide a few simple tips for generating more leads from videos. I will also show you how to make a video that is engaging and share some tools I use that make the process easier.

Why Are Videos So Important to Your Business? Videos are great for 3 main reasons.

First, they are a great way to reach new prospects. You can share benefits of your business or the product you are selling in a more personal way.  Videos uploaded directly to Facebook have very high view and engagement rates, so you are more likely to reach potential leads by sharing a great video. You can also post your videos to Youtube which is the second most used search engine in the world. Creating great content will naturally bring interested prospects.  And it is like with anything, the more you do videos, the more consistent you are, the more great content you provide – the more people will find you.  Videos more than any other tool help us to be seen as an “expert”.

Make a Video to attract prospects

Second, videos are a great way for people to get to know you. You want to ATTRACT people to you. People will get a glimpse of your personality and your enthusiasm for your business. People actually feel like they know us when they watch us on videos. This is great because you may have team members all over the world and you may not be able to do individual video chats all the time. Video allows you to share your message and energy with thousands and thousands of people.

Third, and most importantly, videos are great training tools for your team. Remember, duplication is key. Any time a tool can be reshared with a new prospect, helps them start building their business faster = more money in your wallet and theirs.  Start creating a library of videos that your team can refer and can use to train people they get to join.

Everyone Can Make a Video…Yes, Even YOU!

network marketing tips

I wouldn’t consider myself “tech-y”, but even I have managed to create lots of videos! I am going to walk you through my video-making process and at the end, I want you to try making your own video!

First off,  you will need a way to record yourself! I like to use my laptop. My favorite recording tool is Screenflow because it allows you to record anything happening on your computer screen, as well as the audio.  This is extremely valuable because you can record live webinars or meetings you are hosting online. You can also record right from the camera on your laptop. Screenflow is a great option for PC and Mac users, but if you have a Mac, you can also use Photo Booth. You can also use your smart phone. Use what is natural and easy for you, otherwise it will become a chore. If you do use your iPhone, I would suggest investing in a mini tripod so the video is not shaky.

Pro tip: make sure you have a well lit room! Otherwise the video will look grainy.

The best videos are conversational. It may take you a few tries, but just talk how you would to a friend you met for coffee. Write down key points you want to discuss in the video, but don’t read a full script. If you do, you will sound robotic. Your quirky personality traits really make a video shine, which almost seems counter intuitive at first. Just be yourself! If you find yourself getting nervous, just remember, it’s just a video and it won’t bite you 😉 We are often more critical of ourselves, especially our appearance, but other people are watching to hear what you have to say. They aren’t focusing on your mascara or hair cut.  Believe me, we are our own worst critics!  I have taken 10 takes to do a simple little video and then finally got to the point, where I said enough!  Good enough not perfect is good enough!

Once you have recorded your video, you can post it on Youtube or Facebook. If you want to create a more advanced video, you can add a title page and audio using a video editing program, like iMovie for Mac. You can also pay $5-$25 on Fiverr and have a professional help you add that to the video for you. If your business is well established, I would suggest adding these elements.  Here is an example below of what I mean by a title page.

Make a video

By using these tips and tools, even I have created great videos. Although it was hard to get over my fear of technology and recording myself, I pushed through it and it was worth it. In the past few months, the traffic to my website has increased exponentially. Now I am challenging you! Make your first or a new video and post a link in the comments section!

My Interview with Vince Reed, Network Marketing Nation

Vince Reed Network Marketing Nation

Recently I had an amazing opportunity to be interviewed by Vince Reed of Network Marketing Nation. I was able to share my experience in the network marketing industry and I hope it will help you become more successful online as social media marketers. Here are some key points from my interview, but be sure to check out the full audio and article by Vince Reed.

  • The best thing about earning more money is the ability to inspire other people to take charge of their financial situations and become top earners! I have invested in that process over the years and I know it is a great use of my time.
  • What network marketing company should YOU work with? Do your research on the company, but also find a great team with an amazing leader. You should resonate with that leader’s style and integrity.  Your upline can make all the difference for you!
  • If you are just starting out in network marketing: it is important to laugh a lot.  And to bring your own personality into your business.  Just be you.  Don’t try to be anyone else!
  • Learn how to manifest your success! By reading and working with great masters, and consistently practicing spirituality and improving one’s skills with the laws of attraction, you can start manifesting the things you want.
  • Be consistent and always track your progress. A new person to the business needs to think of a BIG VISION and dedicate time to achieving that vision and do that every week.
  • Dedicate time to reaching out to 5 to 10 new people a day or a week (you choose) to build a network. Consistently work on this.  The speed that your business will grow ultimately depends on how many people see what you have to offer.
  • Check your ego at the door – remember: it is not about you, it’s about the team you work with.

Thanks for reading and cheers to your success!

How to Be Consistent in Five Steps

Consistency is Key

Learning how to be consistent is the best way to achieve long-term greatness in anything you do – from taking care of your health, your network marketing business or your relationships. However, learning how to be consistent is also the one thing that we humans have the most difficult time perfecting! It is most difficult when we are trying to improve something in our life. Unfortunately, we have no choice but to learn to be consistent in anything we do. In network marketing, consistency translates into making more money and creating the life you really want!

Here are just a few simple steps to learn if you want to improve an aspect in your life and become more consistent with anything you do. Set time aside for actions that will get you further in your career or your personal life. Those goals are definitely worth working on. The rewards are huge and you will never be disappointed. Here are five steps to learn how to be more consistent.

How to Be Consistent

5 Steps on the Road to Consistency

1. Remember to keep THE WHY you are trying to achieve your goals if you are going to stay connected to what you are doing. It is very important if you are going to have a clear compelling vision of what you’re trying to achieve and know why you want to. VISUALIZE the house you want, the car you wish to drive, the life you want for you and your family. This will fuel your fire. I am a big fan of dream boards.  I have a dream board for every major area of my life.  One of these days I am going to create a video showing you my dream boards that I created years ago and show you what has come true from those visions.

2. Do not make a generalized plan to “be more consistent.” It is important to pick your battles carefully. Just pick one or two things that you want to work on and stick with it. It is just a common fact that all of us have a limited capacity when it comes to will power and discipline. For example, a doctor or therapist will recommend that you don’t try to quit something like consuming sweets and drinking at the same time – otherwise you might fail at both. Instead, try to be more consistent with JUST ONE particular aspect of your life, like making more prospect phone calls. Setting specific goals will give you something to strive for. We just can’t achieve everything at once otherwise we will overwhelm ourselves.

3. It is important that you create space in your schedule to work on your goals. Stephen Covey, the highly regarded author of the best-selling “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” once said, “Don’t prioritize your schedule, schedule your priorities.” That distinction may be subtle, but it is also very important. If you are trying to make a specific activity or trait more consistent in your life, you have to build your whole life around it rather then trying to fit it in your normal daily schedule. For example, if you are trying to to build your network marketing business, it is important to set aside a few hours or more each day to do so.  None of us think we have enough time, yet we do find time for the most important things.  If you aren’t getting to something, it may be because you haven’t decided that it is really important to you.

How to Be Consistent with your schedule.

How to Be More Consistent

4. You have to improve your willpower and ignore your feelings. That is, you need to ignore that voice in your head that says: “I don’t feel like it!” Anytime you are trying to be consistent at something that is important to you, you will sometimes hear that little voice. You have to train yourself to overpower that voice in your head if you want to learn how to be consistent. You just cannot be consistent without improving your willpower and remembering that you have to practice whatever it is you are trying to improve over and over again, even if you don’t feel like it. It is also important to ignore the negative voices inside your head. You know, those voices that say: “I can’t do this,” or “I can’t seem to stick with this!” or “I’m too lazy!” Just keep working on it and you will get better. Remember, that it is okay if the changes are occurring slowly – it is impossible to be perfect at everything.  One of the biggest mistakes we make in our network marketing business is not giving it enough time – both short term time and long term time.  You have to carve out the time and decide it is unconditional.

5. Most important of all: be realistic – it takes time to practice! Keep in mind that you won’t start out always being consistent 100% of the time but that’s okay. Be kind to yourself! Don’t think that if you miss one workout or one day meeting prospects, that it was a waste. It is okay to fall off the wagon time and time again – everyone does. Just don’t think that because you fell off the wagon that you can’t catch up… you just need to run and catch up to it!  What is that old saying – “It isn’t about how many times you fall down.  It is about how many times you get back up!”

Network Marketing Tip: Creating Your Dream Life

Network Marketing Tip: Create your dream life

 Network marketing tip: Are you living your dream life?

Do you get up in the morning raring to go?  Are you living the life you really want to live?  Are you doing what it takes to follow your dreams?

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.  Oprah Winfrey

If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.  Les Brown

I just got back from an incredible mastermind event with Ray and Jessica Higdon in Destin Beach, Florida.   On the way there, the driver talked about how the beach ranked right up there with the beaches in Maui.  Coming from California and having traveled to Maui quite a few times, I have to say I was a bit skeptical.  So when I arrived at the hotel, I unpacked and went to the beach.  It is an AMAZING beach.  Gorgeous emerald green water, great temperature of the water and the whitest and softest sand ever.  The beach is my happy place.  I have been able to go to beaches all over the world and I have to say the driver was right, this beach ranks up there with the very best of the best.

Network Marketing Tip:  It is so worth it!

Our 15 year old daughter told my husband the other day that I was so lucky to get to travel the way I do.  She is right.  I am lucky, I am blessed and I am very grateful.  But you know that saying, the harder I work, the luckier I am?  Well, I feel that way too.  I am actively creating my life.  This is by design.  I was in corporate America for over 20 years and just got really tired of working for a boss, of helping them make a lot of money and especially tired of someone telling me how many weeks vacation I got to take.  It just wasn’t enough!  So I started thinking about how I could design my life and what would that look like.  I created dream boards and I wrote down exactly what I wanted my life to look like.  A day in the life of Kathleen.  A perfect day in the life.  Write it down.  Who are you with?  Where are you?  What does your house look like?  Who are you helping?  Visualizing what you want is the first step.  Getting clear on what you want is key.

Network Marketing Tip: Go for it!

That’s a great place to start to create your dream life.

Then you need to surround yourself with people who have what you want.  Who are happy, who are excited about life, who have what you want and who inspire and motivate you.  I just spent 3 days with a mastermind group that challenges me, that pushes me and that I can learn from.  Some of our friends and family are trying -without meaning to, to hold us back.  We can still love them, but remember we are the sum total of the 5 people we spend the most time with!  Always be willing to learn.  Put yourself out there to get what you want.  It does take effort to really create your dream life.  And it is so worth it!  I am very grateful that my Father gave me the love of travel and the love of learning.  I am so grateful that I am on a path to follow my dreams.  I love that I get to help and inspire other people to dream bigger.

One of the best things you can do to follow your dreams and my very best network marketing tip is to include in your daily practice, time every day to read your affirmations and time to be inspired and to learn.  How that works for me is I journal every morning including time to read my affirmations and then I read my affirmations on my iphone at night before I go to sleep.  So that those positive thoughts are in my head (instead of some of the scenes in Scandal…)  And I also spend at least 30 minutes almost every day of the week listening to a positive message or reading from a book that inspires me and motivates me.  MINDSET is everything when it comes to being in the place where you can create your dream life.  So do everything you can every day, to enhance your current mindset.  Let go of what is stopping you and holding you back.  And if you are in network marketing, you have one of the best business models that exist, to create your dream life.

Network Marketing Tip: It is worth it!

Here is a quick video I took as I was leaving the beautiful beach of Destin, Florida.  Follow your dreams.  Go for it.  I can promise you, it is worth it.  Think in terms of what you will be able to do and who you can help by becoming the person that creates their dream life!

I hope these network marketing tips are of value to you and that you see why going to the company events is so important.   Click here for another network marketing tip. You may also love my recent blog post about working a home based business that can help you follow your dreams.

Network Marketing Tip: Are Home Parties Even Worth It?

Home Party

Are Home Parties still worth it?  Still necessary?

I have 8 plus years experience in the industry and have some thoughts about this.  With the age of the internet tools we have available today and all the ways there are to connect with social media, I am hearing more and more often that home parties aren’t worth it.   Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the tools we have available on the internet and I have sponsored over 70 people in the last year from social media connections.  And I also love hosting and attending home parties.  Home parties are still a GREAT TOOL in the tool box for network marketing.

You might hear an internet marketer say you can build your network marketing business all online.  And you can, but will YOU?  Building ALL online is done successfully by very few people.  And if you talk to almost every 6 figure and 7 figure income earner that exists today, we will tell you that our success comes from a combination of offline (one and ones, home parties, events) and online (facebook, webinars, linked in…).  There are many top earners today that have achieved their success strictly through offline activities, but the world has changed and we do have these incredible online tools available and it does make sense to learn these new skills. I am just saying don’t throw a proven technique out because it seems old school.

Why are Home Parties still effective?

Is it worth it?

I believe Home Parties/Home Business Reviews are still very effective especially when you are just getting your business started and/or you want to jumpstart your business.  And this is true for most of your team too.  Social media is just a way to connect with people, often we still need to pick up the phone and talk to someone if it is someone we are really going to build a partnership with.   One of the biggest reasons people stay in their network marketing business is because of the community we create and home parties are one of the very best ways to stay in touch, to be in community and to get to know your team and prospects.  It is very hard to create online what happens at a home party.

Would you like to learn more about the why and how to’s about Home Parties?

Then watch my Youtube video and follow my channel for more tips!

I look forward to connecting with you.  And remember if you feel yourself resisting that you need this, it may be exactly what you need.  Our biggest resistance is our biggest paycheck.  I will give you tips on when to host a home party and how to host it – believe me there are lots of ways to make the home business review the most effective tool you can offer for you and your team.

Network Marketing Tips: How To Get More Customers

Network Marketing Tips…

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to get more customers?

Here is a question.  What if you could show and tell your prospective customers how to use your products and what you like about them?  What if there was a way to get your passion across in a duplicatable way – there is. I know videos are a great way to set you apart from the pack. They aren’t always easy to get done and lots of things get in the way but it is so true that the more you do, the easier it becomes. Create a video that shows your prospects how to use your products – whatever that might be – whether it is a health and nutritional product, or a body wrap or a legal service.

You could create a video that highlights the main products and explains when and where they would use it.  This short video is a quick example that I created for my company’s product line.  You get the idea.  It doesn’t have to go into all the ingredients and the features.  You will convert more prospects into customers because people feel like they know you. Like they have met you via the video.

Create a video to share how and when you use your  products.

How to get more customers …. it’s all about being personal

Just a quick overview with some of the things that you really like about product X.  Tell your story.  Telling a story will always make your videos more interesting and personal.  And it will be easier for you to create them!  And remember when you are creating a video – you are talking to ONE person.  Make it friendly and accessible.  Don’t think about the thousands that might see it.  Think about your neighbor across the street – the one you really like that is the perfect customer for your product or service.  And above all – don’t try to be perfect.  If you do, it may not ever get done.  Just start….  It is our quirks that make us interesting anyway.  All you have to be is YOU on camera. Make sure you smile more than usual and pump up the energy too.  The camera responds well to movement and passion in your voice.  I know I need to learn to relax more and smile more, too in front of the camera. All a work in progress!

Once you have this video, then you can start sharing it online.  You will have it to send out in emails when prospects inquire.  You can post it on Facebook and in Facebook groups.  You can write a blog about it.  You can publish it on Youtube.  Videos are so multi-purpose.  And they last.  You can use them over and over again.  And people love seeing and hearing you share what and why you love your products.  And I would expect that you would be one step closer to figuring out how to get more customers.

Network Marketing Tips: Creating a Video on How to Join Your MLM Business

Network Marketing Tips…

Network Marketing Tips: Using Video

Something you might want to do for your network marketing business is to create a short video on HOW to join your business.  I get asked all the time how do I get your products?  How do I join your business?  Now I can send this short video that makes it easy for them and gets them started. People want to know how to join your mlm business.  Here is a quick example of what this type of video could look like.  Don’t make it hard….Don’t overcomplicate it.  It is so easy to not get a simple video done.  Believe me, I know….  This is just an example.  You don’t have to get too technical.  You don’t have to explain all your programs and options.  Just help your customer or possible builder get started.

Video: How to Grow your Business

Network Marketing Tips:  Creating a video on how to join your MLM Business

It should be short and sweet, personable, an easy process and most of all, help lead them to a decision. We all want a lot of customers right?  Not everybody is a business builder and we so appreciate our customers too! A video like this will also attract the business builder because they will see that you are in business and that you mean business. You are taking the time to do something that most people don’t do. And in the world of social media and the internet – videos are definitely winning. The more videos you have out there, the more people will find you and the more you will dominate the space you are in. The power of video is it is almost like you are there in person with them. It is SO much more personal. It reassures people that you are real.

A lot of us have fears and blocks about the camera and creating videos.  Sometimes we get stuck as soon as the camera is on us.  I know I was like that and can still need to run around the block a couple of times after a video session.  I have gotten much better though than I used to be – it takes practice.  That old saying about practice makes perfect.  It’s true but we don’t need to be perfect.  We just need to be better.  I remember reading a book called “The Purple Cow”, by Seth Godin.  I read that book when I first got into the network marketing industry and the message was because of all the advertising we see on a daily basis, that you needed to be a purple cow to stand out and be seen.  Videos will set you apart from what a lot of people are doing to build their network marketing business.  This is just one example of a quick and easy one that everyone can do.  Another network marketing tip:  if it is easy and duplicatable, then your team will grow faster.

Is Your Business Off to a Great Start in 2014?

Happy New Year!

Is your network marketing business off to a great start in 2014?

Start your 90 blitz today.

It’s two plus weeks into the New Year.  I hope your holiday season was wonderful, warm and filled with love and family.  If you are like me, the last two weeks have felt good to get back to “normal” life, too.  And I bet you have lots of great goals for being successful in mlm and ideas for how this year is going to be different and better.  Me too!

I love the beginnings of a new year and for lots of reasons, I am especially looking forward to 2014!  I think it is because we have spent the last 18 months building the foundation for my new multi-level marketing business with Jeunesse and it is really starting to come together.  I am excited to see where we will be one year from now.

One thing I have noticed is that we have great plans and goals in January and we start the year with the best of intentions and typically by mid- February we are off the rails.  Sound familiar?  How can we make this year the best we have ever had? It has everything to do with our commitments and our obligation to follow through.  We show up for so many things but we don’t always show up for ourselves!

Get your network marketing business on the path to success

Here are a couple of things I am committing to in 2014.  

I have stepped up my commitments to my Jeunesse business and as an entrepreneur.  My team and I started a 90 day blitz for the first quarter of the year.  That means we are stretching and pushing to do more each day, each week and each month than we did last quarter!  We can do anything for 90 days!  This works and is necessary to be successful in network marketing. I am so excited about where we will be one year from now.

I have stepped up my commitments to my health.  I am going to eat more fruits and vegetables and less sugar.  (would someone help me throw out the leftover Christmas chocolates?)  I am going to exercise first thing in the morning because all too often it doesn’t happen later in the day.  And I am going to get myself to sleep by midnight.  The last 3 out of 4 nights I have succeeded.  (I am a night owl – I love to work in the middle of the night but I know it isn’t good for me.  Not sleeping when we should be is aging to our bodies…which is the opposite effect of what Jeunesse products are trying to achieve).

Why do we fall off the rails of our New Year Goals?

Help your network marketing business succeed!

Most of us have a very hard time with discipline and consistency.  We want to be our own boss and to be successful working for ourselves. I think most of us think discipline isn’t a nice word.  I had to rethink what I thought discipline meant and when I did, it changed everything.  Discipline and being consistent is key to success in everything.

Whether it is losing weight, creating a great relationship, building your networking business or investing – being disciplined and focused is what makes it all happen.  Every day we have the chance to start anew, to start over, to start again.  Give yourself a break on the days where you fall short and keep going.  Most of us fall off the rails because we give up.  One thing that works for me is to write down my goals for the year and the steps I am going to take to make those goals happen.  And then I print that page out and I revisit it each week.  That keeps me focused and on track.

When I am feeling out of sorts, I change my physical state.  We can change our emotions and our sense of well-being very quickly.  It is just a choice.  Getting up and moving around, going for a walk, lifting weights for 5 minutes will move you to a more positive and productive mindset very quickly.

Then you will be in a better frame of mind to tackle that phone call or to set up that appointment.  Every day do the important activities to move your business forward.

At the end of the day, feel great about what you did get done.  Our to do lists are a mile long (at least mine is) and we will never get it all done.  I had to train myself to appreciate and feel good about what I got done and not focus on what I didn’t get done!  It makes a huge difference, especially if you are in the habit of falling asleep at night fretting about what you didn’t get done.  Guess what you will dream about?    It is so much more rewarding to feel good at the end of each day!

 2013 Recap

Every year, I “close” the ending of a year. I love to go through the past year and savor what happened before I really dive into the New Year.  At the beginning of each year, I also always choose one word or a phrase that will sum up the new year.  In 2013 it was appreciate and laughter.  This year the phrase for the year is PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS.  I am really going for it this year.

I heard this quote the other day:  Be grateful for where you are and where you are no longer.  I encourage you to be thankful for what you have accomplished.  2013 was a big year for me.  Here are some highlights.

  1. Mark and I celebrated our first year of marriage.

  2. I celebrated my one year anniversary with my new company – Jeunesse.

  3. I created the foundation in my new business for a great and long term success.  I feel honored to get to work with the leaders on our team – blessed to have them in my life.

  4. My team and I created a duplicatable system for our team to run with.

  5. I created a new brand, new websites and revamped social media sites

  6. We celebrated Christmas for the first time with our 3 kids.

  7. I participated in several life changing mastermind events.

  8. I hired marketing mentors to help me achieve my dreams.  Everyone needs coaching.

  9. I presented at our Jeunesse Las Vegas Convention in front of thousands of people – so much fun and feels like home!

  10. I traveled to Maui, Las Vegas, Napa, Mendocino, Orlando, New York City, Bangkok, Vancouver Island and Vancouver.  Plans are already in the works for Palm Springs, Vancouver, Seattle, and Italy.

 Make your network marketing business a success in 2014!

I am thrilled with the results of 2013 and believe me, when I say that I believe 2014 will be the best year yet.  When we focus on what we want and pull out all the stops, it is amazing what we can accomplish.  You can change your life.  We all can.  We all can create more than we can imagine.  There has never been a better time to be in the networking business.  And the internet and social media make it 1000 times easier to build a global business than even 5 years ago.  What are you waiting for?  No one else is going to take care of your retirement or send those kids to college.  We are the ones we have been waiting for.  Let’s go get it done!  I wish you a fabulous 2014!

Mindset for Business – Look, Listen, and Speak Your Way to Success

Mindset for Business

Mindset for Business…

The other week, my top leaders and I did a series of calls with our team, and what kept coming up was the importance of having the right mindset for business success. The biggest thing that holds people back from the results they desire is a limiting mindset. Consider improving your mindset for business TOP priority, because the actions you take (or don’t take) always stem from your thoughts.

Here are a few pointers for developing an empowering mindset for business, and how to look, listen, and speak your way to success:

Mindset for Business Success
LOOK for What You Want

Mindset for Business

Have you heard of the book, E Squared, by Pam Grout? One of the book’s exercises is about looking for something very specific and seeing how it shows up over and over again. For example, butterflies. At first I wondered what the chances would be that I would happen across a butterfly throughout my day (especially since I work from home). Guess what happened:

I pulled an inspiration card (part of my daily success routine) and the picture on it was a butterfly! Astounded, I shuffled through the deck and counted eight butterflies in the cards. For the first time, I noticed my hand lotion – that I use every day – had a butterfly on the label. On my walk, I saw a giant wooden butterfly on the side of a neighbor’s house. Something caught my eye and, when I looked up, I saw a sweet little butterfly at the top of a tall tree. At the movies that night, about twenty butterflies flew across the screen during a pre-flick advertisement.

What does this have to do with your mindset for business? Everything! What you look for, you find. So what are you focusing on? Negative people with every objection in the world? Or successful people who are attracted to your products and your business? Make a decision now to intentionally look for what you want.

LISTEN for Clues

Part of having an empowering mindset for business is listening to your intuition. Call it Spirit, the Universe, or God – whatever speaks to your spiritual connection – the divine has a way of whispering messages to you. The question is are you listening?

I learned this the hard way a few years ago. I had been receiving messages not to go through with a particular investment – I had a strange feeling in my gut whenever I thought about it, and a couple people even warned me this was not a person to invest with. I went through with the investment anyway, though, and ended up losing a lot of money. Now, I listen to those divine nudges!

When developing your mindset for business, pay attention to the subtle messages the Universe sends you. If an old friend’s name pops in your head out of the blue, perhaps you might give her a call. If you hear a book title repeated numerous times throughout the week, that book might just have the exact lesson in mindset for business you need.

SPEAK Your Intentions

Mindset for Business

Cultivating a success mindset for business means understanding that you create your experience when you speak your intentions. Create a habit of setting an intention each morning for what you want to happen during the day. Solidify your mindset for business intentions by asking for people to show up who are enthusiastic about your product and company. Expect to receive what you ask for, and be grateful in advance.

The spoken word is a potent creative force, and affirmations are a powerful form of intention. Here are some of my favorite affirmations (feel free to borrow them)!

  • “I’m able to ask for what I want”
  • “I get value from everything I do”
  • “Every day I wake up to new wealth”
  • “Money comes to me in unexpected ways for the good of all concerned”

Five Steps to Jeunesse Success

Jeunesse Success Starts Here…

Did you know that building a successful Jeunesse business comes down to just FIVE activities? It’s true. If you can master these five activities and do them consistently, you can take your Jeunesse success to the top.

Here are the five activities to focus on for Jeunesse Success:

Jeunesse Success Tip #1: Make a List

Who do you know? You know more people than you think, so ask yourself this question on a regular basis, and keep adding people to your list. Set a goal to add five names to your list every day. You’ll be amazed at how big your network actually is!

Jeunesse Success Tip #2: Contact the People on Your List

It would be great if your list would pick up the phone for you, but it probably won’t. Keep your list with you at all times. Pick up the phone and call people throughout the day and introduce the idea to folks as you see them in person.

Jeunesse Success Tip #3: Invite

Invite your contacts to learn more about Jeunesse. Stop by their home with a sample of the serum. Ask them to meet you for a one-on-one coffee meeting, a home meeting, an opportunity webinar, or a larger event like a Jeunesse Leadership Conference.

Jeunesse Success Tip #4: Share the Opportunity

Now that you have your contacts’ attention, share the opportunity. If you brought them to an opportunity webinar or larger event, the top leaders will do this part for you. This is a great reason to bring as many people as possible to these events! Whoever shows the plan the most has the most to show for it at the end of the month.

Set a goal to sponsor one person per week. Imagine the level of your Jeunesse success 52 weeks from now if you sponsored one person per week. What if 10 people on your team did the same?

Jeunesse Success Tip #5: Follow Up

This is often the most intimidating part for people, and we’re all busy, yet follow up is key. Have you heard the phrase, “The fortune is in the follow up?” If you leave out the follow up, you are leaving a lot at the table.

These five Jeunesse success activities are simple, but not necessarily easy. It takes courage and perseverance to stay the course. This is the course though… Five simple steps. Rinse, wash, repeat. So if you can stretch yourself and become unstoppable, you can take this business to the top and be a walking Jeunesse success!
