Be A Part Of The Big Boom With MLM Dream Maker!….Franchises vs “The People’s” Franchise.

 

Network Marketing was never meant to be easy or a free ride. Just like any business you must be prepared to invest time and dollars. Too many people ‘assume’ that the Network Marketing company should pay for your conference expenses and that is simply not the case. YOU would not expect if you bought a Cibo Coffee shop franchise that the Franchisor would pay for your education on how to run the cafe, industry trends, give you free stock to give to your customers to try or your annual holidays.

Investing, as a distributor, into a Network Marketing company is only similar to “traditional business’  in the way that YOU buy it, You own it.  This is where the similarities end.  How ever, even these similarities are vast. For example, Network Marketing / Home Based Business start up costs are less than your pizza and pay TV movie night in, where as your little cafe option may set you back somewhere around a quarter of a million dollars!

Perhaps it is the fact that the start up cost of a Network Marketing business are so minimal that people do not appreciate their investment, nor do they take the business opportunity seriously….(*sigh*)…wasted opportunities…..there is nothing worse.

Are you getting my point?….Keep reading…

Our Australian National conference was held in Melbourne, Victoria a couple of weeks ago. Distributors and guests arrived full of enthusiasm and departed full of motivation and confirmation, yet again, that they had made the best life decision of their life in this moment.

FACT: Gone are the days of “traditional business.” (Franchising, Self Employed)

FACT: 1 in 8 homes has a “home based business.” (Network Marketing)

FACT: 70,000 people worldwide join this (Network Marketing) profession every day!

Now, lets just recap on a few comparisons on traditional and home business and why NOW is the time to JOIN a Network Marketing company for best investment on maximum return.

Excerpts from “The People’s Franchise” by John Milton Fogg
In the 1960’s franchises were considered a scam. Congress was even trying to outlaw them. Today franchises are responsible for more than forty percent of all the retail goods and services we buy and sell in the United States alone – over one trillion dollars!

About one third of all franchises fail, another third break even and one third makes a profit. Franchise fees range between $1000 to $500,000 or more. Then you have to pay for the building, equipment, initial inventory, etc. – all of which can run into the millions. Plus most franchise companies take a percentage of your sales, not just profits, but sales as their royalty commission.

There is a way to have the LOW TO NO RISK BENEFITS of a proven, DUPLICATABLE BUSINESS system like franchising and still enjoy the RICH REWARDS of a ground floor opportunity.
The next best thing is the “PEOPLES FRANCHISE”…..”NETWORK MARKETING!”
NETWORK MARKETING has taken franchising and has made some remarkable improvements to it. Such as:

* Low capital investment – little to no risk.
* The benefits and tax advantages of a home-based business, one of the last forms of tax relief available.
* No employees – you are in control. You are the CEO of your own business. Unlike most entrepreneurs, your business does not own you! You are truly in control of your work – and your life.
* More choices. Anyone who is a network marketer is a volunteer. You don’t “have to” do anything. You are free to work the days and hours you want, where you want, doing what you want and you are free to choose the people with whom you work. There’s none of the all-consuming demands of a seven-day-work-week and a 15-hour-a-day retail operation.
* You’re in business for yourself but never by yourself. Lots of support to help you succeed.
* No franchise fee to pay to the company, no huge start-up or overhead costs, no restrictions on marketing territory – you can travel the world and take your business with you.
* You have the ability to offer the opportunity to build a successful business to others in partnership with you! It is not only wonderful to have your dreams come true but it is really special to be able to help others achieve their dreams.
* You get to leverage your time, talent and energy by earning commissions from sales made by those you introduce the business to who decide to join you. You earn income from the efforts of others: in time, tens, hundreds, even thousands of others.
* It works so well because you don’t have to be some high-performance sales superstar. It’s based on a lot of people doing a little bit each.

Network Marketing is not a get quick rich scheme, a pyramid scheme or an easy ride. It requires a bit of time and effort if you really want to make some extraordinary income. Look at it like this, generally if an opportunity is too good to be true, it usually is.

Inspiration Station Has Me Intrigued…WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

 

Network Marketing is the most rewarding business on the planet. I meet amazing people every day who inspire me with their stories and adversities overcome. I am always giving energy to others and in turn receiving energy. That energy can be either positive or negative, mind you. Always repel the negative my dears, right back where it came from, realize it, but do not absorb it via thought, let it go immediately. Network Marketing has a certain kind of energetic formula that works, and you can apply throughout your life generally too.

“Match Energy With Energy.”

After my recent visit to entrepreneur.com a few things hit home for me. We all NEED inspiration to put ideas into motion and keep us on track with our goals. Without inspiration we are destined for dooms day and that aint no place to play! I have had a little less inspiration recently than I would have normally liked and most times I am fast to jump on that mental space and change it.

Feeling perplexed and overwhelmed with life’s adversities recently, I was challenged with a business decision and made up in my mind that I “could not do it.” (This is one of those times where you tap into one of your energetic “inspiration resources” for a top up. Hence why I say you need several inspiration avenues to call on as they won’t all be suitable for various adverse situations that you will be faced with though time.) I notified my business mentor/partner and his reply was “Yes you could.”  I had it already so firmly engrained in my mind’s eye that I was not going to do what I had set out to do. I opted the easy route out. My excuse was that my problems were being bigger than my opportunity on this occasion and therefore admitted self defeat. I also decided I was happy with that decision because it was my truth and I accepted full responsibility for that outcome.

My mentor on the other hand was not done with that decision and thankfully I chose well when I picked him because he pushed me beyond where I thought I could travel on this occasion. He assured me that he would support me if I only follow through. I agreed thinking that his call was reasonable and I could not argue. Mr Mentor pointed out to me that I should have chosen the hardest decision and feel confident that I could outsmart the habits that are governing the direction in my life. In doing this I would be actively changing my future and reaching my full potential rather than riding life’s insane circular merry go round.

What was the outcome from all of this learning? Well Mr Mentor then asked me what my solution was.

“If you are not focusing on a solution then you’re focusing on the problem.”

My simple solution to my inspiration block came whilst reading this time. Tony Robins is a great motivator and I tap into his resources frequently. From his recent article I learned that one must defy adversity and do what you believe is right in spite of your fear. Demand more from yourself that others would expect and live by the power of sincere and selfless contribution.

“When challenged, remember to whole heartedly embrace your power from within. Courage is infectious and incurable.” Mr Mentor.

Weight training energises me also, and in-turn delivers me loads of inspiration. Maybe exercise works for you, maybe it does not. Find what does work for you and tap into that as soon as you have that inkling you’re in need of inspiration. As long as I am energised, I am inspired. If I feel a bit flat in my day, I often reshuffle my work load; head off to the gym, recharge the endorphins and I’m then good to go.

Some people might find a walk on the beach, turning up some base and beats or even a short jog around the block or walking the family pet. Then there are the less healthy options such as (I have been a culprit here too  …yes…) a cup of coffee and a cookie. Whatever or where ever it is that brings about your creative burst, it 110% MUST recharge you. I have discovered that when I feel good within myself I am the most creative and my inspiration flows freely. It is critical to have that connection to something (or a few things) external that you know you can tap into for some inspiration energy when your stores are running low.

Bottom line… nothing comes free in this world. There is a price on everything. TIME MANAGEMENT is paramount. The saying “we have all the time in the world” is ridiculous. We don’t. For starters, time is just comparative to measure ones events through life’s experience. However to most efficiently utilize this life for the higher purpose of why we are really here, to be able to “achieve” and make “dreams reality”, we need to use “time” to give goals a “time frame.”  This ensures completion of goals and therefore the celebration of fulfillment. Find your inspiration and run with it!

“Respect the urgency of time…Change is harder as time goes by.”

Connection VS Competition …. Life Is A Beautiful Struggle.

 

Competition VS Connection

Network Marketing teaches me something new with every interaction and at every meeting. Adelaide may be a sleepy little town, but the people certainly are not. One woman in particular who I met with last night at my 10pm business meeting certainly is not asleep. This very wise business woman opened my eyes clearer than day……

“I only have myself to compete with in this life.” That’s it! There is no one else, just me for me and for you, just you….KH

Competition should only ever be within. Competing with another is just as toxic as jealousy and envy. It is for the wrong reason and leaves a bitter taste in ones mouth.

Confident women don’t need to compete with others and they always get what they want. Why? How? Because they are sure of themselves and the direction they are heading.

Whilst sipping on an espresso martini and with hard to contain enthusiasm, discussing our next exciting business plan, my girlfriend and I “connected”. There was no “competition,” just connection. There is a massive difference between connecting with someone with intent to help them and meeting with someone for what YOU can gain personally with no interest of the other, this I refer to as competing before you even begin your venture.  There are always going to be insecurities amongst social circles within people and these insecurities need to be addressed empathetically and carefully.

“I realize that part of what I do here is to help women find their own inner strength and belief in themselves as I have had to do in my journey of life which has been anything but plain sailing!” ……Kali Holmes

As much as like attracts like, confidence and charisma attracts the opposite as well because this is how we learn what we are and what we are not. Confident people will attract others who are confident and connect but confident people will also attract insecure people who remind them they are confident and to teach those that are insecure to believe in themselves and how to become confident.

“Embrace the struggle. For it is the struggle that makes you stronger, the changes make you wiser and you find that happiness happens in its own way through personal growth.” ….KH

The only healthy form of competition is on the sporting field. Some may say that a little competition amongst friends is healthy and pushes you to work harder, I disagree. I know and firmly believe that friends encourage and motivate, they do not compete. This is not to say you will never have a friend who does not try to compete with you, and, you will absolutely feel and know when this happens and you need to realize that this is their learning and the universe is complementing your strength and showing you your strength through the other person’s competitive streak.

 

“The competition part of life is actually to do with your own internal strength. Having the strength to compete against yourself is the hardest competition you are ever faced with in life, and the most rewarding when conquered.” …..Kali Holmes.

Internet Marketing and the power of Face book for lead generation.

Internet marketing through the use of Face Book has become a somewhat global trend and is an excellent tool to use to add value to your network marketing business. However, in saying that, nothing beats face to face meetings, three way calls and personal communication. Internet marketing opens the door to millions of leads and possibilities….if you know how to use the right language and how to build rapport.

Internet Marketing strategies using Face Book by Kali Holmes.

Kali Holmes’s suggestions for Face Book Internet marketing:
1. Set up a Face Book business fan page and make sure that this page is interactive and always the topics posted are relatable to your primary business that the page is centered around. (If you are unsure how to set up a fan page then please shoot me an email and I will gladly help – kali@kalinutritious.com)

2. Build rapport with your new fans by acknowledging them liking your page. You can do this by sending them a personal thank you message or add a comment to their wall. This shows you appreciate THEM (the new fan) considering what you have to offer and for their support.
3. Offer something of value. Be it a special product offer, updated information on news and events in your business, your advice when they ask you – simply because you care and do not expect anything in return.
4. Use of pictures. Most people are visual, so by providing appropriate images on the top image of your timeline/profile picture you will instantly give a certain impression when people come across your page. Photo albums are powerful to create on your page as well. Keep pictures current and up to date showing your business activity. This may be acknowledging achievements in your team, sales from new customers, photo’s of new team members, recent event pictures. Your aim with photos and images is to generate visual interest and then people tend to want to read a bit more to find out what the business is about.
5. Interaction. You want to create interaction with your fans, so when writing posts, try to ask questions, create topics for discussion and reply or like their reply to your posts. This once again is all part of building the relationship, trust and rapport with your new fan.
Internet Marketing is extremely valuable for lead generation and Face Book is just one example of how to use internet marketing to build up your leads for your network marketing business. Don’t make it your primary focus, but I will stress that it is extremely important today to have a cyber presence. So go on and shoot me an email when you have your new fan page up and running, I’m only too happy to support you with a “like!”

How the foods give you that Supermodel polished skin:

Brown Sugar: Exfoliating with a sugar scrub doesn’t relax the muscles, the way salt does, but it relaxes the mind with its delicious smell. Sugar is also full of glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid that is crucial for maintaining healthy skin and is usually a key ingredient in pricey products. The natural glycolic acid in sugar not only helps condition and moisturize skin, but protect it from toxins.

Far from clogging the skin, sugar works well to cleanse completely, so it can not only reduce any current body acne you may have, it can also help prevent further breakouts. Sugar moisturizes on its own, but as most sugar scrub recipes require oil or honey to help form a paste, it provides even further moisture and allows your skin to achieve more of its natural balance. Kali Holmes

Macadamia Nut Oil: Moisturizing: Macadamia nut oil has a high content of palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid that is similar to the skin’s sebum, which tends to decrease naturally with aging. Using macadamia nut oil can help fight the dryness as a natural moisturizer and is absorbed by the skin quickly.

Kali Holmes Toning: Like olive oil, macadamia nut oil is rich with antioxidants and is especially high in vitamin E. Vitamin E improves the appearance of scars, tones the skin and prevents stretch marks.

Exfoliation: When used as a carrier oil in creating a body scrub, macadamia nut oil also provides many benefits in exfoliation. Mixing the oil with essential oils for fragrance and a natural exfoliant (brown sugar, salt, etc.) creates a product that keeps skin clear.

Vanllia Essence:

Kali Holmes Purely used for added scent and relaxation.

BIO-INSURANCE…A NEW kind of insurance policy.

As my primary business in network marketing is Jeunesse – the worlds first and only skin care derived from Adult Human Stem Cells plus the most advanced ingestible anti aging pills ever, I sure have conceived a whole new take on the words of that song “forever young!” Beauty has always and always will be in the foreground of my life and sharing secrets and tips to others to reverse the signs of age and staying slim and trim is what I do on a daily basis. Never before in a network marketing company have I come across such a remarkable product, with no competition and light years ahead if there ever was to be.

Dr Giampappa, one of the scientists who developed the anti aging tablets AM PM, known as “Star Trek Medicine” because it is about 20years beyond where they thought they would be, also performs stem cell reconstructive therapy.  AM PM has 4 amazing components to it. 1.  Telomere Maintenance complex 2. Stem Cell Maintenance Comples. 3. DNA Repair 4. Calorie Restriction Mimetics and Gene Expression.  (http://www.reverseage.jeunesseglobal.com/NUTRIGEN_AMPM.aspx )

The following video I am sharing with you today gives a very informative over view of what stem cells are and how they have the ability to be so powerful in healing your body and used to treat disease. Recent scientific studies published in peer reviewed medical journals have shown that stem cells from your own bone marrow can treat some cancers, lupus, diabetes, stroke, alzheimer’s, and arthritis.

The amazing anti aging business, Jeunesse, that I am so ecstatic to be in and to have actively been involved in the business development of and pre-launch events leading up to Australia’s national launch in Sydney on March the 17th is all about this remarkable scientific break though in cosmetics.  The pioneers in the industry have cracked the code to unleash the availability of an amazing topical skin treatment of an 85% active face serum that is derived from adult human stem cells. The active component in the serum isn’t actually stem cells as they could not possibly survive in this environment for starters, but is in-fact ‘200+ human growth factor.’ Human growth factor heels the body and when put on the face via a serum and in the mositurisers, we are able to achieve miracle results, almost instantaneously. Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles in 24hours, 24hour skin hydration, healing burns and scar victims to state a few of the little wonders of this product. I cannot live without my anti aging serum!

My superstar team are booming and we would like to welcome leading anti aging doctor, Dr Robin Willcourt who is opening a prestigious anti aging clinic in Melbourne’s South Yarra.

Why Jeunesse? Why Bio Insurance? Well, makes perfect sense to me. It is becoming a growing trend to store your stem cells in a stem bank for a rainy day should one ever come, as the saying goes “prevention is better than cure”. I sure would rather play it safe than be sorry and have a premature death, when their was that possibility of the collection of my stored stem cells had I ‘done it’.

Jeunesse is a brilliant new and vibrant network marketing company, ensuring success and rewards through one of the best compensation plans around. They use cutting edge technology with the most advanced products in anti aging and will continue to lead the way on the forefront of global trends in this field. So, go on, “freeze a bit of yourself in time” with Jeunesse either as a business or from using the products as preservation against aging.

Successful Network Marketers NEVER NEVER NEVER give up! EVER!

 

Adelaide Network Marketers are incredible. (Being based in Adelaide at present – I feel it is fair to make this claim) They have such passion and drive and being such a small town if you can form a great team here, you can sell ice to eskimo’s.

I love network marketing and all that this industry entails but what happens when your body stops and your mind keeps going? How do you come across enthusiastically in your presentations, to be able to motivate and uplift your team when you are dead as a door knob? YOU are the driving force behind your team and need to show that you are up-tempo and ready for them at all times.  Sometimes  this crash and blah feeling is known as burnt out… I think… I feel exactly that this weekend. The last 20 days have been chaotic in a good way. My team have recruited some amazing network marketing leaders and we are growing at such a rapid pace, I am so proud of everyone’s efforts.

What I have realized though is if you take on too much and attempt to be everything and everywhere for everyone you soon are no good to no one. Really think before you do take on another project or squeeze in another social event. What are your priorities? After a massive rest and sleeping last night for what felt like an eternity I woke up, thinking I was still asleep, to this MOTIVATIONAL video that one of my team members Frank sent me:  please watch and share your “shift” in “Cant do it, want to give up” thoughts to “hell yes, i can!” below.

Amazing video right? Well the point is anyway – (Not just the footy player!) Instnatly – ( I think after he crossed the first line – or maybe at the point when he was blind folded!) those panic stricken thought lingering in my mind that I am burning from defeat of myself from taking on too much vanished and I felt energized. I will do it all because it is what has to be done and people are depending on ME to follow through.  One must prioritize what events, list of to do’s are the most important, of value and do those first. Everything else can wait. YOU are important, that is number one on the list. YOU must be energized, that is number two. 3, 4, 5, 6 is everything else and how you place them.

It is amazing where we find the energy inside to fulfill things and although time seems against us and we think we no longer can, it hurts too much to keep moving forward, we do have 24hours in a day (as my girlfriend Cass reminded me this week!) and should use those hours wisely. If the guy in the video can do all THAT!!!… Then surely I will arrive well prepared by my deadlines.

Network Marketing is such a rewarding industry, but manage your time well and stay on top of your game. Motivation is a key element. Please share your motivational tools with others here!
