Break the comfort zone or bank account stays empty

Life begins outside of your comfort zone. You can only

Look at the largest obstacle to your success and you will find that it’s you and your comfort zone which leaves your bank account empty. You need to break the comfort zone you’re in to make the empty bank account grow.   That may be hard to hear and so let me explain it in a way that you can understand so that you don’t continue to self-sabotage yourself unintentionally.

When you skin your knee when you’re starting to walk and run, you are developing new skills in life. Why would you think that when you start a business online, that you wouldn’t have bumps and hurdles that you need to cross?

What does raising a child have to do with owning your own business?

Let me ask you a question?  Do you have a child or children?  Do you know there will be discomforts and not knowing exactly what you are doing when you raise a child?  

Wouldn’t the same hold true as you move into the world of business and the world of working online?  Being in the home business arena and the online arena is one of the most lucrative practices in the world today.

Are your Actions in Line with Your Expectations?

If your expectations of being an entrepreneur are not in line with the actions you take  you will justify why the money is not following.  In all reality, the path is simple but never easy to the life-changing profits in business.

Today you deserve to know that you deserve to experience those life-changing profits in business.  So what should you look at to have a new career as an entrepreneur?  Let me ask you a question.  Again, to my previous question, do you have a child or children? If you don’t do you know someone who does?

You Deserve to have More in Life, right?

I’d like to give you an analogy that could open your eyes, to some major differences and similarities that need to be addressed in owning a new business.  This is important to know because it has to do with your comfort zone and an empty bank account.

When you have a new baby, the baby does not come with an instruction manual.  You do learn the differences in the hungry cry, the dirty diaper, the stomach ache, the tired,  the teething, the frustration of trying to communicate cry.  During this time, there are sleepless nights, you’re not always happy, you get tired, maybe even cranky, but the overriding feeling is your concern for the well-being of this new baby.  You love this baby, it is a part of you and you want only the best for this new life you are caring for.

When there is something wrong with your baby, it gets your attention.  It takes time for you to understand what your baby is trying to tell you.  Is the baby sick ? What do you need to do to for your baby to fulfill his or her needs?  Your baby  will pull on your heartstrings and you will try to find out what is needed.  This baby will have you laughing, smiling and feeling the joy of this new being that eventually will grow into a person that you will grow to love more and more.  That is your job as a parent.

Entrepreneurship is like having a Baby

Entrepreneurship is like having a baby.  You’ll have to practice some things that are not always comfortable.  You’ll need to put in some new daily habits into your daily routine that you’ve not done before.  

At first, these habits might feel a little uncomfortable.  Isn’t that always the case when you start something new?  It’s uncomfortable until it starts to be comfortable. Just like having a newborn, by six months you will be able to identify the different cries.  You will finally be more comfortable.

Do you know what is possible?

When you know what you have, it all becomes worth it. The personal change, the money coming into the bank account, the new skills that are no longer uncomfortable but have now become a daily  habit. The trust and mentorship of the team you have aligned yourself with is personally rewarding and financially profitable.

Who wouldn’t enjoy better sleep, a better immune system, experiencing  more money than month.? You could show someone a path to solving problems with a solution that is proven and that works.  A proven pathway with mentorship.  Who wouldn’t want to show someone a path that works?  Your business can become a passion.

You need to be sure about what you have that works.  If you are in network marketing what are the steps you need to do daily that will lead you to success?  Your business will not grow if you aren’t making daily presentations.

Do what’s Uncomfortable until it becomes Comfortable and a New Habit

Do the things that are uncomfortable until they become comfortable and you have developed new habits.  Learn new skills and become the person that changes your future.  There is greatness in each of us.  There is greatness in you and new habits can be created.  All is possible with intention and some grit.

Shocking Truth About Most Marketing Leaders

What Are Your Marketing Leaders Not Telling You?

Most “Network Marketing Leaders” are not telling you everything you need to know. Why are they not telling you? As you continue to read, you will discover why you have been struggling from this lack of information in your network marketing business. Most “Marketing Leaders” have been teaching what they were taught about sponsoring, but maybe not everything they know.   And of course, you’ve been racking your brain trying to discover what secret you don’t know that is causing you to struggle.  You’ve asked yourself, is it your belief in your product? Is it a belief in your company? Is it a belief in yourself?


Is your frustration that recruiting people to follow you so that you can build a team, that is just making you crazy.   From what I learned in the many years I have been in network marketing, when you put yourself in the position of a victim and blame others you are in trouble.  But you know others are succeeding and making 6 figures, so you know there is something missing and you would like to figure it out.   Is your belief in the industry strong enough and your desire to be able to create the dream strong enough to keep going until you find the way to succeed? What do you think you need to do? Do you see that others are succeeding in your company? Are you committed to yourself and learning some new things that could make a difference?

Are your Marketing Leaders Lying To You

When you think of your “Top Marketing Leaders” that are making Six Figures;  are they lying to you when they tell you:

1) You need to make your list and contact everyone you know.

2) Share with everyone that is within 5 feet of you.

3) Learn to engage people in conversation and get your elevator pitch down pat.


Listening is one of the most important skills you must learn in your family and in your business. Listening gives you the opportunity to understand and ask appropriate questions. Through listening and asking the right questions, your relationships will improve.   Listening will allow you to discover more about who a person is and what’s important to them. This is an important skill to learn to be able to have conversations with anyone. Truth is, that NOT EVERYONE is right for your business, even if you talk to them and listen.


You can’t promote your business to Everyone.  So what do you do?  To build your team and do it the fastest way, I’d like to introduce you to a word………AVATAR.  An Avatar is a singular person who represents the perfect person who most likely will buy what you design your entire marketing system around.   The biggest mistake most network marketers make is, that they believe everyone NEEDS their product and EVERYONE can benefit from it. It is a mistake to market to everyone and the result will be that you Make Few Sales.


When you think about your offer, think about who would benefit from it the most.  Who wants it?   Who is looking for it?   Who is dreaming about their problem or their pain and is looking for an answer?  Why would your prospect benefit from your offer and what kind of challenge may they be experiencing?  Why would this be the Solution they have been looking for?  How will this product benefit them after they purchase it?

How do you figure out who your Perfect Customer Avatar is?

Think carefully about who the person is that is your perfect Avatar.  It will be easier to market and present when you can offer the solution to their pain.

1)  What are the Challenges and pains your prospect is dealing with everyday?

2)  How can you help your avatar solve their specific problems?

3)  What is the typical day like for your avatar?

4)  Give your Avatar a name.


What do they do for a living?  How old are they?  Family? Married?  Working?  Describe them in as much detail as you can. Go into detail.   This is a simple exercise to create your Avatar.  Once this is done,  you can create advertising and offers to them, that will  bring  quality distributors into your business.   The truth is your “Marketing Leader” may not know about creating an Avatar. They are teaching you what they were taught. Problem is they can’t give you what you need to breakthrough, to be more successful in marketing to the right people.

So you are tired of the endless stream of rejection and you are looking for another way to build your business. Will starting a Blog  while you’re working at your job, be an answer?  What if you could generate 20-100 leads a month that want what you have. How could you do this?

You are wondering how you will ever succeed in this home business arena or even a Brick and Mortar Business where you need more sales.  You don’t want to give up on your dream of financial freedom, or at least not having to worry about money anymore. So what is the answer to finding people or have people find you?


How can the internet with it’s worldwide reach be the help that you need. I have gotten into a program called EMP and they are teaching me step by step what to do to learn all the skills needed to have a successful Online Presence. I have learned how making your Blog can be a genuine successful venture. I want to pay it forward. So here goes…


Blogging is a way that you can make money by itself or add it to your existing business.  There are some people who have started a Blog out of their own interests or a hobby that they love and have made money in the process. Sounds crazy or sounds like a Dream. It’s true. Remember the Movie Julia and Julia? Its about Julia who cooked all of Julia Child’s recipes and Blogged about it.  It became a movie.  If you haven’t make a point of seeing her process.

How will having a Blog Benefit You?

The Power of the Blog doesn’t need to take all of your time. What will starting your Blog do for you?

1) It will give you a credible business platform. You will be an expert in what you do and not just a business owner.

2) Increase the organic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) traffic to your website so that more people will find you.

3) Provide you with an extra stream of passive income.


I was in a situation that you may find yourself in. You found a company and you are in love with their products. You definitely are enthusiastic about how you feel if it’s nutrition or if it’s new technology, you are enthusiastic about how it will assist people.  Here may be some of your obstacles you have run into.


1) No Time

2) No leads or traffic

3) Talking to unqualified leads

4) Don’t have credibility

5) Technology Challenged

6) Missing a Coach or Mentor So where do you start.

Who is your Target Market?

First you will need to figure out who is your audience if you already have a business.  Does your business need more traffic? Who wants this information? Are you looking for people who are looking to better their life? Business owners in a Brick and Mortar Business, Realtors, Mortgage Brokers,  Any Business Person wanting to build a wider audience?


Do you want to reach frustrated network marketers?  Who are the top leaders in your company?  Pharmacists, Financial Analysts, Dentists, Doctors?  What don’t they have enough of?  Time with their family. Time to pursue many important Projects that they believe in, but if they quit working, the money stops.  Do you think what you have will appeal to people who want Time Freedom and Financial Freedom??


You can set up a Blog for less than $70.


Next Step, let people know about your Blog.  Use Social Media. Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pintrest or any other Program you are a part of.

Secret to Be a Stay At Home Mom

mom-working-from-home-with-happy-daughter-vertAre you a Mom Who Wants  to be a Stay At Home Mom?

Your desire to be a Stay at home mom is getting stronger and stronger. Your frustration has been growing with your many responsibilities at work and balancing the needs at home whether you are working full-time or part-time. What do you need to know before taking a leap?  You could be a Professional woman or you could have a job that is taxing your limits.

You’ve got the boss breathing down your neck with endless demands and deadlines. Not to mention the office drama and working with people that you would rather not be working with. Life and time constraints are a struggle.

The responsibilities at home are never ending, even when you have a partner to share in responsibilities. Sleep almost seems a luxury and is oh so needed. Trying to keep everything in top shape gives one the desire to have more hours in each day and is very tiring.

Your desire to be a more hands on mom is becoming increasingly stronger. A big question you have on your mind is how will you be able to give your children all the things you want to provide for them. There are always the time and money limitations that you have now and how could you do that if you were home?

Let me ask you a question, even with promotions, will it give you the financial freedom so you can stop worrying about money? What are your options to give you more time and money that will improve the quality of your life? Is there a business you could work from home or an online that could meet your needs?

Let me tell you a little of my story. I had young children and wanted to be a stay at home mom and continue to bring money in money to assist my family financially and be there for my children. I found a product that really worked for me and it worked for a lot of other people too. I built a business that has created residual income for over 20 years and continues to do so.

What I understand now, with the power of the internet, the possibility of learning skills on how to do things on the internet allows your reach to go way beyond the people you know. This is a way to reach people and not experience rejection and build worldwide.

Skills are paramount in this new day of the internet It can’t be hit and miss and trying various ways without a strategy and a system that would continue to work for you for years and years. If there is no strategy to a business that you can start from home it can be very costly and potentially very painful. Online Marketing is a learned skill.

How are you going to choose what will work for you? There are so many home businesses to choose from. May I make a suggestion? Don’t choose just yet. Learn some skills first.

Do this while you are working. Get your feet wet. Get some education, gain some skills, feel like have sure footing, and you know what you are doing. The internet has worldwide reach.

Once you’ve done that and you feel that you have direction and you are making money, then entertain the idea of working from home and no longer go to your job.

Your children will be so grateful that you are more available and you will be so glad that your money worries are a thing of the past. This will not happen overnight. It will take time, effort and a learning curve. Where will you be if you have the dream and don’t take a step towards it?

How did I learn internet skills? I joined an EMP Program. This program teaches how to Build on a Budget, How to Blog, How to do video, How to develop a sales funnel, How to work in Social Media, the Copywriter’s Guild on how to write Copy.

You can learn more about a home business and what you will need to learn to be good at doing this online by visiting:  You’ll receive 11 lessons on how to use Attraction Marketing to build your home business.
