Here is a powerful post by Dr John Maxwell that I believe will help you in all that you do, and especially for crafting relationships in your home based business.

Here it is:


The Secrets to Building Powerful Relationships.

John Maxwell

I think a lot of the time we take relationships for granted. Because of that, we don’t always give them the attention they deserve or require. But good relationships require a lot of effort. To keep me on track in my relationships so that I’m investing in them as I must to make them successful, I practice this discipline: Every day I make the conscious effort to deposit good will into my relationships with others.

That means I give more than I expect to receive, love others unconditionally, look for ways to add value to others, and bring joy to the relationships I hold dear. Every evening, I evaluate this area of my life by asking myself, “Have I been thoughtful toward people today? Would they express joy that they have spent time with me?” If the answer is yes, then I’ve done my part.

If you want to improve your relationships through your everyday actions, then do the following:

Put Others First

The best way to start off on the right foot is to put others first. The most basic way to do that is to practice the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you take that mindset into all your interactions with others, you can’t go wrong. But there are also other ways to show people they matter and that you are interested in their well-being: Walk slowly through the crowd, remember people’s names, smile at everyone, and be quick to offer help. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Don’t Carry Emotional Baggage

Few things weigh as much as old hurts and offenses carried day after day in a person’s life. If you want to enjoy your time with other people, you’ve got to get rid of that kind of stuff. You can’t keep score of old wrongs and expect to make relationships right. If someone has hurt you and you need ot address it and get it out onto the table, then do it right away. Resolve it and get beyond it. if it’s not worth bringing up, forget about it and move on.

Give Time to Your Most Valuable Relationships

Most people give away their relational energy on a first-come, first-served basis. Whoever gets their attention first gobbles up their time and relational energy. That’s why the squeaky wheels instead of the high producers at work consume so much attention and why so many people have nothing left to give when they get home from work. Your family provides the most valuable relationships in your life. They should come first as you plan how to spend your time. After that should come your next most important relationships. It’s a matter of practicing good priorities.

Serve Others Gladly

I once heard an airline executive explain how difficult it is to hire and train people for his industry. He said that service is the only thing they have to sell, but it is the toughest thing to teach because nobody wants to be thought of as a servant.

Helen Keller said, “Life is an exciting business and most exciting when lived for others.” I think that’s true. The longer I live, the more convinced I am that adding value to others is the greatest thing we can do in this life. Because of that, when I serve, I try to do so cheerfully and with the greatest impact.

Express Love and Appreciation Often

MLM Linkedin Recruiting and Prospecting.

Have you ever been on LinkedIn and seen the millions of professionals there for your home business?

Are you currently working LinkedIn for your network marketing business?

How does your plan work on LinkedIn- or do you have one?

There are many great social sites out there, but for the professional and business owner, LinkedIn is the hottest prospecting site for a home business professional to get the word out about you and your products.

I ran across this great post by Jill Konrath, and it was amazing. I really like her style and how she sees things in the social world of business. I would suggest that you take notes and on her blog, she does a lot of videos as well, so you will learn from her as I have. Hey! I teach this stuff and have for 7 years, and still learning from great folks like her.

Here is her post:


3 Ways to Reach New Prospects on LinkedIn.

Link to Original Post.

Did you know that overall, you’re 5X more likely to get a sales call returned if you have a personal connection with someone? To me, that’s an amazing statistic. In a world where people are swamped at work and suffering from information overload, it’s the best way to capture their attention.

So what does that mean you should be doing? In essence, implementing a connection-based strategy to reach new prospects.

Here are three ways you can do that by leveraging your LinkedIn connections:

  1. The first thing you can do, is to check LinkedIn to determine if you know any of the same people. Look at their profile too. You might have gone to the same university or worked at the same company at some point in your career. When you reach out to them, make sure to mention the connection right away. This increases your odds of success by threefold.
  2. An even better approach is to have your mutual connection call your prospect to make an introduction. By doing this, you’re upping your chances of success by a factor of four.
  3. And, the best approach of all? Contacting a personal connection. You’re 11x more likely to get a return call. This means you need to strategically focus on developing relationships with people who are similar to your ideal customers. Go where they are — both on and off-line — and initiate a conversation. Make sure you keep in touch with them too. It’ll be well worth your time.

To sum it up, we’re in the Relationship Age, and who you know matters — a lot.

And that says it all folks- we ARE in a Relationship Marketing Age and we better know and learn how to market our mlm network marketing home business in this age.
