How to get over your fear of economic insecurity. – Post 224

How to get over your fear of economic insecurity.

For many of us, our fear of being broke has kept us from truly following our passion. We don’t want to end up on the street, so we continue to work the assembly line, day in and day out, because it brings home a pay check and puts food on the table. This doesn’t sound like anybody’s dream job. Most of us want financial freedom and to run our own business, but how are we going to run our own business if we’re scared of failing, even worse, of losing everything?

The fear of economic insecurity is one that has kept many of us from chasing our dreams; especially if that dream is to run your own business. So, how will you ever rid yourself of this fear? Mastin Kipp, an entrepreneur and writer, had some great suggestions on how we can rid ourselves of our fear of economic insecurity, and take steps towards following our dreams.

First, he asks, how much risk can you comfortably live with? When starting your Youngevity business, many of you still continue to work your full-time job because you feel the risk is too high; maybe you have a family that depends on you, or other obligations that you need to weigh in. Others jump both feet in, knowing that the risk is great, but the payoff will be greater. You decide what you’re comfortable with and then go for it!

Additionally, Mastin Kipp asks you to remember when you were down the most and hit rock bottom; did you make it through and what fears did you have at that point? He also asks us to consider the consequences of not living your dream. What will your future be like and will you be happy? The thought of living a future where we are not happy and not doing what we love can be enough to get most of us going. After all, we all want to live a happy, debt-free life.

Therefore, what actions can you take to start getting over your fear of going broke? Some suggestions made by Mastin were to make a list of what you’re most scared of. Then, create an action plan to prevent failure and also backup plan of what you will do to get out of being broke in the case that you do fail.

What’s the worst thing that can happen if you follow your dreams?

Don’t let your fear of being broke stop you from working your own business and taking control of your future! Know that you will succeed when you follow the steps I follow working my home business. A simple system to give yourself financial freedom.

Is network marketing failing? – Post 220

I read some unfortunate news today about another fairly new network marketing company closing its doors. It’s unfortunate on many levels.

First of all on the broader scheme of things every time a company closes it casts a shadow of doubt on the industry.

Secondly many successful distributors, who have worked very hard to build their teams are suddenly left without an income source.

And third, for the new distributors with hopes and dreams of someday having success, they suddenly find themselves faced with the “told you so’s” of the people in their inner circle of friends and family. I want to address these issues in today’s post.

Leads and Prospecting – Post 219

When people look at network marketing one of their biggest questions is, “Do I know anybody?” They believe if they know a lot of people, they can have lots of success, and if they don’t know a lot of people, they don’t have a chance. It sounds logical, but it’s just not true. This video will show you how you can find more prospects.

You are being Punished for what you did before. – Post 218

According to Eric Worre, a person is either Punished or Rewarded for what they did BEFORE Network Marketing. When it comes to a warm market then, what a person did before MLM will affect how people respond to them. Knowing this is key and can be used to ones benefit. Let me give an example.

If someone is known by their warm market as a successful business person then almost any biz-op script will work. That’s why when a really successful person joins network marketing they knock it out of the ballpark. However when they share how they are doing it with others it just does not work to the same degree that it did for the successful person. That’s because they are known in their circle as being a success so no matter how they present the business it works but 90% – 95% of the distributors out there don’t have the same success.

A successful business person, business owner, or sharp professional, someone that is known well by others as a success, approaches someone by saying “I’m doing his thing, I’m going to run with it hard and am going to do it with or without you, but I would love to do it with you, you wanna run with me?” No mention of the comp plan, no mention of the product, no mention of the car bonus, people join them so they can run with the successful person. They are already known as successful, but that only applies to about 5% of the population.

If someone has never been associated with anything business oriented, that script will not work because there is already a pre-conceived idea. Think about it, if someone that has worked at the 7-11 or taco bell most of their life, someone that’s never been known as a success, when they approach their friends with the same way that the successful business person did, their friends are going to laugh at them, mock them or make excuses about why they can’t or won’t join. However, if that same person approaches them with “Hey, I’m doing a side project to make some extra money and would love your support in checking out the product, I think it could benefit you!” they are going to say sure, or what’s the product, etc. because after all, they’re a friend, they want to do them a favor.

I’m always talking about how important it is to get people to join that want to be business builders but after thinking about what Eric said I realize that, when it comes to the warm market, most people have difficulty with having others take them serious enough to really consider joining in that capacity. I also think that most of people don’t even see themselves in that capacity and this is precisely what makes people procrastinate and never get around to approaching their warm markets.

Keeping all of this in mind, the number one goal is to get everyone to look at the business opportunity. Knowing that it’s not going to happen for most based on peoples past experiences, based on the preconceived ideas of success or failure that ones warm market holds, it is best for most not to approach their warm market with the business opportunity. To get more people to look at the opportunity it would be best for most to approach by asking for a favor of support by using “Hey I’m doing a side project to make some extra money and would love your support in checking out the product, I think it could benefit you!” and then follow it up by showing a tool that not only shows the product but also exposes them to the business opportunity.

At the very least a new product user can be enrolled, at most the friend could reply after seeing the presentation with, “Why wouldn’t I want to join?”
