Bullet proof Home business?

You gotta be kidding me.

You mean there is actually a way to BECOME THAT?

Yep. And 10 feet tall and bulletproof at that.

Come on….you have heard the negative before. We all have and may still do. People are sometimes negative about MLM and network marketing. Sometimes they are a little negative about a Home Business.

You have heard all the negatives and and seen it before.

Friends and family unnecessarily  spouting off Negative comments about your home based business and your future. You get so mad sometimes that you just want to walk away. You may feel like saying, “I don’t need this- forget it.”

 You stare at them and wonder what to say or do, but yet the words only get stuck  in your throat. I have been there and done that.

You may attempt to play some kind of “verbal jujitsu,” but they have you in a head lock with their negative words and you just sink back into the chair and feel defeated.

But here is the most hurtful part to their negative comments concerning your MLM home business:

They seem to actually make sense with their logic. Ot at least seem to.

You stand or sit there and have no seeming choice but to just take the negative spew. And you just wish you knew what to say. But you remain silent and actually start to ask these poisonous questions:

“Could they be right?”

“Could they actually have a point here?”

“What if they ARE right?”

And the doubt and the fear slowly start creeping in, and you start to question your decisions and future concerning your network marketing home business

This happens everyday in the land of work at home home based businesses. Negative people start to try and stop you because of their own fears and insecurities and many times- they are very successful.

But it is time that came to an abrupt STOP.

Understand this bit of prudent mlm advice:

Negative well meaning people are still –NEGATIVE. (Read that again.)

They may mean well, and often do,  but there has never been any Success accomplished in any home business or even life  with a negative focus and a negative language soaking it daily and hourly.

So what in the world do you do?

Here are 3 things that can say to help neutralize the negative comments when they appear:

1) “I appreciate that comment, but let me ask you a question: Who in the world sold you on THAT?”

2) “Thanks for sharing, but what you just said does not match up at all to what I have researched about this company and products. Would you like to see a little of my research?”

3)”That is an interesting way to look at it. There are several other ways to look at that I have found as well. Let me explain…”

And there is also a very powerful secret to doing this:


It is called the single most powerful  “satin hammer” that exists when you answer a negative prospect. Confidence tells the negative MLM home business prospect that you understand that they have an “opinion” but you are not buying what they said.

They will FEEL that in your response.

Most negative prospects are just that way:   NEGATIVE.

So you have a decision to make:

Are you going to let the negative mlm prospect influence or even dominate your business, or are you going to continue with boldness and confidence and not worry about the naysayers?

It will determine much about your future success in your MLM and Network marketing business.

If you expect to succeed at a level that most only dream of, then you must become bulletproof with your prospect’s words. Simply makes a decision that your prospect’s words will NOT influence you. They will only embolden you to move ahead STRONGER and more powerfully in your mlm home business.

Home Business Training- The 3 Things that Stops Everyone?

Home based businesses

require the proper education and training on ALL aspects of building a business as well as yourself. That is the purpose of this home business training.

If you have been in Home Based business for a while you will find that there are a lot of times that you just feel like walking away. The pressure is real and the frustration can drive you crazy.

I nearly quit the first 2 years I was in this profession 4 times and wow! What that would have cost me if I had!

Home business survival when you are new is typical and must be dealt with. But after awhile it goes beyond survival to making a decision that you are staying…or leaving.

I have found that there are 3 things that stops everyone. But the ones that Succeed in home business are the ones that get past these 3 hurdles and makes these 3 things a STEP versus a stumbling block. You learn that in home business training.

What are the 3 things that stop everyone and what can you do about it?

1. Fatigue.

This is a killer of many a home business. The owner catches fire, but burns too bright and then starts to burn out and then burn up.They become fatigued and just worn out.

And then fade out.

This business is where you must PACE yourself. Any business owner will tell you that you must go at a steady pace versus run a race. And take care of your body and diet. Eat energy foods, exercise, and drop some pounds if you need to as that alone will keep you tired.

2. Stress.

If you are constantly stressed out because of your mlm business– you are working it all wrong. This business is Lifestyle Marketing. You work  it as you live your life, not live your life as you work your business.

You TAKE IT WITH YOU-not it takes you with it and dominates your life.

Stress can stop the best in this profession because of the worry and anxiety that goes with it. Let up and let go. Take a break and get with your kids or spouse and destress your life and business.

It is NOT worth losing your health and lifestyle and more trying to make it work. You are working it wrong.

Do not try and MAKE it work- LET it work naturally and you will find that your home business will start growing.

3. Opinions.

Ahhh those pesky opinions of others, I could write a book on what I was told over the years. Opinions can stop you cold in your tracks. Especially from a person of influence.

My suggestion is when people start giving you negative opinions, smile and simply say, “I really appreciate you caring, but I don’t think that way anymore. I know that I will succeed and build a tremendous business and I would love your support even if it is only as a cheerleader.”

Opinions can make your business jump the track if you are not careful. Learn to listen to people that have BEEN THERE and can take you to where you want to go. If someone has a negative opinion, so be it. It probably will not change and it is best if you do not try to change it.

Becoming successful will change their minds without any forcing from you.

These are the 3 things that can stop anyone in a home based business. Make sure that you watch out for these hurdles when you are growing and building your home business in network marketing.

Home Business- The 3 Things You Will Need No One Will Tell You

home business mom

A Home business is simple enough to start.

Many folks do everyday and are happy they did and work very hard.

But…then something happens. They start going itno the FUNK ZONE and start questioning if it was a good idea to start their own business. It is all part of the  process of ANY Start up of any kind. But especially Home based businesses.

The reason?

There are 3 things that are critical to your success that most home business owners never even know. That is why I am writing this. I want you to deal in REALITY and understand you need these 3 things to success in network marketing.

Ok…what are those 3 things?

1. A PLAN that WORKS YOU- not you work it.

This is critical.

 It must be a plan that you feel GOOD about and dsoes not overwhelm you or intimidate you. You work the plan that you k now will keep you happily working but STRETCH YOU enough to get the results you need.

2. A Product that says “CONNECTION!”

You MUST be emotionally connected to your product and services. If you are not, you will find this home based business profession is a long road to haul. An emotional connection is powerful and magnetic and draws people towards you.

Most people are NOT connected emotionally to their product….and thus…struggle in marketing it effectively.

3. A Promise that keeps you- you not just not keep it.

Your product and home business must PROMISE something. It must promise Increase, Enlarging, Expansion, Elevation, Changing, Transforming of a life- something that will move the prospect to buy it and join you.

BUT- also it MUST keep YOU as you are so connected and sold on the promise that it becomes part of your language and lifestyle. THAT is what will keep you miving through the hard and tough times.

These 3 things you MUST have for your mlm network marketing business to succeed in home business.

Home Business Training- The 4 Phases of Growth for an MLM Team

home business phases

Home Business 

Growth has Phases.

Just as the seasons are spring, summer, fall, and winter, so goes home based business. There is no secret that there are phases or seasons to any business growth.

Home based businesses are no exception.

Home business growth comes in a step by step, methodical growth.

It is called phases, or seasons.

You may disagree and think differently. But after 25 years in this profession, I can tell you that is the truth.

ALL MLM growth comes from seasons and phases of growth.

That is one of the best kept secrets in Network Marketing…it is a business of phases and growth…

What is a phase?

It is a period of time in your life that you go through and through those times you experience many things…one being growth…

Your MLM organization is no exception….it will go through 4 phases of growth…if you let it…


Most downlines never go through all 4 phases, as they get stuck in one and stay there…


You will stick with it and continue building your group till it reaches the phase you want it to be at…


The Four Growth Periods.

What are the 4 Phases of MLM organizational growth?


This Phase is the first period of time that you and your fledgling downline will go through….and it can be a rough one…

This period of time is where you are new, and really don’t know the business, your skin is not 2 inches thick, you have no prior experience in MLM, and you are on a major learning curve, and you will make mistakes….

This is where you are actually developing your belief and trust in the industry, and many things can shake your focus and belief….





Set Backs.

People telling you NO.

And the list goes on…

You really are fragile in this business, because you have not developed your “Success Muscles” to help you go on in face of adversity…and your group is as well…

This is where a lot of people quit…they never “get it” that you must grow beyond the Fragile Phase to build a business….

They got their feelings hurt constantly by their negative prospects…because they were in the Fragile phase and never grew beyond it….

In the Fragile stage is where most people quit, as they cannot take the Negatives and Disappointments that are innate to MLM and entrepeneurism…but their problem was NOT the negatives…

But their lack of understanding how to take them and what was REALLY happening with that kind of response….


This second phase is where you have grown beyond the Fragile phase, and now your group is starting to grow more solid and be more consistent in Volume and paychecks…

In the Solidifying phase, you start to see some Leaders emerge, and volume becomes solid and steady….as well as paychecks start to get steady and consistent…

When your group moves into this phase, you will know it and sense it as well….your leaders will start to experience success as well as you and it is consistent…and you will see some leaders start to create their own identity in this business…

And you will sense some beginnings of momentum as well….

You will start to see some growth in your group that you had absolutely nothing to do with, and it will continue….

And you will see some new faces starting to show up in your group that you don’t know who they are, or their names….

THAT is when you will FEEL your group starting to Solidify….and that is where the majority of people quit…

80-90% of people who leave this business leave during the first 2 stages….and most leave during the first….

The Money Phases.


This phase is where the big money starts showing up. You can make a living in the solidifying phase…a nice one…but this phase is where the big checks start showing up, and show up they do…not only for you, but also your leaders as well…

This phase is where you start to have “Layered Leadership” and that simply means you have Leaders in layers in your downline in many legs…and they now start to have Leaders showing up in their group as well….and the numbers in your group now number in the thousands, and many are active Leaders….

The Mature Phase also shows that your leaders have taught and duplicated how to build leaders in their group, and the dynamics of your group here become exciting as “Mature Pockets” start showing up and they no longer need you, as they have “splintered” into their own leadership organization…

This phase, $100,000 a year is commonplace…
And Millionaires to be start showing up….


This is the “WEALTH CREATION” Phase….this phase is where Wealth is created and accumulated and Millionaires roll up in this business….

This phase is where no matter what you do, you cannot mess up your business…and it will continue on in the event of your death…

The Rock Solid Phase is where also you have many Mature “Pockets” of distributors in your group, and now you have Mature Leaders that have big groups and many layers of Leadership…

Many people get close to this phase but never achieve it as they lack the Leadership skills to take it to this level…and many are close to it, but yet don’t understand it is that last 10% effort that most never give that determine the Rock Solid phase.

So those are the 4 phases of Organizational Growth in MLM….

Fragile, Solidifying, Mature, and Rock Solid.

Where do you see your group heading?

The answer to that will determine your future in MLM and Network Marketing…..
