3 Dangerous Beliefs That Can Cripple Your Business

In today's post you'll learn 3 dangerous beliefs that can cripple your business. If you're struggling getting leads, and enrolling reps and customers you'll find this helpful.

Feel free to share with your team as well.

3 Dangerous Beliefs

The other evening I attended a webinar held by My Lead System Pro (MLSP) Co-Founder Norbert Orlewicz where he shared 3 dangerous beliefs that can cripple your business.

Over the last 10 years Norbert has coached many home business owners to achieve long term success in their business. Norbert began to notice that many entrepreneurs have goals and dreams for their business, but there is a gap between knowing what they want and actually doing the activities to achieve that result.

That comes to 3 dangerous beliefs  you may be consciously or subconsciously aware of.

Dangerous Belief #1: I Already Know This

The first dangerous belief that Norbert shared is thinking “I already know this”. It's not about knowing MORE.

You need to learn how to execute and put your knowledge into action. That's where the rubber meets the road.

Turning a profit in your business doesn't involve sexy activities. Rather, it involves simple activities that we can take for granted. 

Do you remember watching the movie The Karate Kid? Daniel wanted to learn how to do karate, and his mentor, Mr. Miyagi, had him practicing the fundamentals of basic karate moves doing a series of mundane tasks, from painting a fence, to washing cars.

Daniel got so frustrated that he confronted Mr. Miyagi and wanted to LEARN karate. In this memorable clip, Mr. Miyagi teaches him a powerful lesson.

Dangerous Belief #2: Work Harder

The second dangerous belief Norbert touched on was working harder to get results. 

Have you ever said this to yourself:

  • I'll spend an all nighter grinding on the weekend to grow my business
  • If I had more time in my day I'd be more successful

I know I sure did! But Norbert and the My Lead System Pro community taught me that it's not about the lack of time, but rather, the lack of FOCUS.

So often we think we mistake activity for accomplishment. We need to be working on the RIGHT things that put our business into profit. 

You need to understand what you need to work on and how to improve your results, which leads us to the third belief.

Dangerous Belief #3: I Can't Afford Help

The third and final belief that can cripple your results is believing you can't afford to be mentored by a top earner. 97% of home business owners fail because they believe that they can't afford to invest in coaching and mentorship.

They believe that they need to have some success first before they invest in a mentor/coach and rely on free methods.

This is very dangerous because free turns out to be the most expensive. Why?

It takes up your most valuable asset…your TIME. You can't get that time back.

When you attend a company event and see your leaders go on stage to share their success story, almost all of them will say their results changed when they made a DECISION to invest in coaching/mentorship.

Let me introduce you to Erin Birch. She started her network marketing business to supplement her income. As a single mom with two teenage sons, she was making less than $2,000 per month designing and making jewelry.

She failed miserably, making only $300 in her first four months. Erin was faced with a big decision. Either quit and get a job, or invest in finding a mentor to help her get results.

Erin chose the latter and has not looked back. Within her first year of investing in a mentor, Erin had her first 6 figure year, and enrolled over 480 people into her business. 

She is now a top affiliate in the My Lead System Pro (MLSP) community and recently conducted a wakeup call to share why she strongly believes in the power of mentorship.

After completing the Wakeup call, Erin was so fired up that she invited everyone to a Facebook live video to share even more insights why investing in a mentor compresses your time and accelerates your learning curve.

5 Critical Skills to Grow Your Business

Do you want to create success and grow your business? These 5 critical skills from Norbert Orlewicz could greatly help you!

In this post you'll learn the 5 critical skills that will help achieve a profitable, sustainable, online business.

5 Critical Skills to Grow Your Business

The other evening I attended a webinar held by My Lead System Pro (MLSP) Co-Founder Norbert Orlewicz where he shared the 5 critical skills entrepreneurs need to finally achieve results in their business.

Over the last 10 years Norbert has coached many home business owners to achieve long term success in their business. Norbert began to notice that many entrepreneurs have goals and dreams for their business, but there is a gap between knowing what they want and actually doing the activities to achieve that result.

He identified 5 critical skills that all top earners embrace that give them not only results, but long term success.

Skill #1: Audience Growth

The first skill you need to master is building an audience. You need to be building your audience on a daily basis.

There are many different ways to you can build your audience. If you're brand new to your business and not technically savvy, Norbert recommends building your audience using one of these strategies

  • Facebook Profile
  • Facebook Business Page
  • Facebook Groups
  • Facebook Custom Audiences
  • Email List
  • ManyChat FB Messenger List

Once you have mastered one of the primary strategies above, then move to building your audience using one of these platforms

  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • SnapChat
  • iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.

Skill #2: Creating Engaging Content

The second skill to grow your business online is to engage your audience by creating valuable content. This is content that will help your market solve a big problem they have.

Here are a few examples of how you can create engaging content.

  • Social Media Posts
  • Blog Posts
  • Emails
  • Facebook Live
  • Videos
  • Commentary on Other Content
  • Webinars
  • Podcast
  • YouTube Videos
  • Ebooks
  • Training/Tutorial Series

Norbert recommends that you pick one of the 3 examples listed above and create content on a daily basis. People have short attention spans these days and you need to be able to keep content in front of them so they can remember who you are.

Skill #3: Communication

The 3 critical skill you need to grow your business is to communicate not only 1:1 but in front of multiple groups of people. The top earners use many different vehicles to communicate INTO their audience.

  • Copywriting
  • Video
  • Speaking
  • Conversation
  • Webinars

Top earners recognize the language their audience uses to describe their problems and then uses that language to show them a solution.

Skill #4: Conversions

The fourth critical skill to grow your business is to convert your leads and prospects into reps and customers. How do you do this?

Watch the video below by top My Lead System Pro (MLSP) affiliate Justice Eagan who shares  great questions to ask in order to help your prospect arrive at the conclusion that they need what you have.

Skill #5: Tenacity

The final skill Norbert shares to grow your business is tenacity. Tenacity is the ability remain CONSISTENT and PERSISTENT in your business no matter what happens.

Too often, people give up when the first sign of adversity hits their business. How do you develop that tenacity?

Top My Lead System Pro (MLSP) affiliate April Marie Tucker did a wakeup call for the MLSP community sharing how you must trust the journey of becoming an entrepreneur. She shares some very practical tips how to keep going even during the challenging times.

Brian Fanale: You Are The ONE

In today's training you'll learn from my mentor Brian Fanale 4 words that will change your business – you are THE ONE.

It doesn't matter how good you are at prospecting or marketing. If you don't believe that you can do it, you'll never achieve any success.

Make sure you share this with your team as this will help them.

You Are The One!

One of my biggest mentors in my business is Brian Fanale, co-founder of My Lead System Pro (MLSP). I met Brian in person back in 2014 at the My Lead System Pro (MLSP) Live The Dream Event.

Brian shared with me the moment he went from broke, struggling bartender eating left over french fries to 7 figure earner. He attended a live event and met his mentor who told him to watch the movie The Matrix and to watch it with a different set of eyes.

Brian did what his mentor told him to do and he felt a shift within himself after watching this scene.

Brian realized that he had to wake up from the limiting beliefs that were holding him back. 

  • Feeling broke
  • Feeling that he wasn't good enough
  • Feeling that he was too shy and not articulate enough

When he woke up and realized that he was THE ONE, his business changed. He began to step out of his comfort zone and began to step into what he believed he was.

The other day he did a wakeup call for the My Lead System Pro (MLSP) community sharing this important mindset shift that you are THE ONE.

you are the one

Listen to Brian's Wakeup Call Below

 

The turning point for me to believe I was the one when was when I began dialing into the My Lead System Pro wakeup call. You can listen to the wakeup call every Monday-Friday live at 11 AM EST by dialing (512) 807-0222. There is no PIN #. 

After every wakeup call  at 11 AM EST, MLSP founder Brian Fanale or a top MLSP affiliate will do a Facebook Live video on their Fan Page sharing more insight from the wakeup call.

After the wakeup call, Brian was so fired up that he did a Facebook live to share why he believes why you are THE ONE. Make sure you take plenty of notes because what he says is pretty important.

Doc's Thoughts on You Are The One

Did Brian's advice help you? What part of the wake up call or live stream recap resonated most with you? 

I'd love to know! Share it in the comments below and let's start a conversation! I challenge you to watch The Matrix again like Brian did and watch it with a different set of eyes after listening to the call. It will change you for the better.

Here are more resources for you to show you how to stop complaining and add abundance into your life.

6 Top Network Marketers You Should Follow to Get Results

Want to know what it takes to build a profitable, stable network marketing business? Here are 6 top network marketers you should follow that will help you.

Top Network Marketers

Building a profitable, sustainable network marketing business centers around 3 key areas:

  • Prospecting and Recruiting
  • Follow-Up
  • Team Building

With that said, it's not easy to build a business. The activities are simple, but not easy.

It requires commitment to develop the habits to engage in these key activities daily.  The best way to compress time and accelerate your learning curve mastering these activities is to model from the top earners.

Here are 6 of my favorite top network marketers that have helped me grow in each of these 3 areas. They are not ranked in any particular order.

Ray Higdon

Ray Higdon is one of my absolute favorite network marketers.

In 2008 Ray went from being a successful real estate investor to personal foreclosure when the market crashed. Things were so bad that his girlfriend (now wife) Jessica had to pay his utility bills.

He made the decision to go into network marketing full time and today now makes 8 figures per year. 

Although Ray is not active in network marketing, he is now teaching network marketers how to build a professional business without chasing friends and family. In fact, his company made the Inc. 5000 list.

He just launched a new Facebook mastermind group called Rank Makers, geared toward providing proven strategies to help network marketers rank advance. You can get on the waiting list by clicking here.

I had the opportunity to meet Ray Higdon in back in 2014 and 2015 at the My Lead System Pro (MLSP) Live the Dream Event. He is so down to earth and easy to talk to.

What Ray taught me was the importance of engaging in a daily routine and focus on the activity not the result. He also shared with me how to use social media the right way to attract the perfect people to my business.

Watch this video below where Ray shares some of his best social media strategies at his Top Earner Academy Live event.

Eric Worre

Eric Worre is a network marketing professional. I first heard of Eric in 2013 at Ray Higdon's recommendation.

Eric goes out and trains distributors, no matter what company they are in, how to conduct their business as professionals. He teaches them how to find people who are looking for a business instead of always asking friends and family. 

Along with his wife Marina, Eric puts on an annual event called GoPro where he brings in not only the top network marketers but also the best minds in business from Tony Robbins to Sir Richard Branson to teach and to elevate the profession. 

One of the biggest things I learned from Eric is how to manage my time. When I started treating my business like a business, it began to pay me like a business.

Eric says you do have a boss in your home business. It's not you. It's your calendar. Eric breaks this down in the video below.

Lisa Grossmann

Lisa Grossmann is one of the most sought-after trainers and speaker in the network marketing profession. She is a keynote speaker at some of the biggest events in the home business industry including Eric Worre's Go Pro, My Lead System Pro's Live the Dream, and Elite Marketing Pro's No Excuses Summit.

She has been in the industry for 25 years as a distributor, consultant, and the corporate side. I first met Lisa in 2014 when Diane Hochman introduced me to her at the My Lead System Pro (MLSP) Live The Dream Event.

What I love about Lisa is she really explains how to build your team the right way. Watch this video below where she shares her best tips at Ray Higdon's Top Earner Academy Live event.

Todd Falcone

Todd Falcone is a network marketing trainer with over 25 years of entrepreneurial experience in profession of network marketing and direct selling.  He is a keynote speaker at some of the biggest events in the home business industry including Eric Worre's Go Pro and My Lead System Pro's Live the Dream.

His specialty is teaching new individuals about the fundamentals of success in network marketing. 

What I learned from Todd Falcone was how to become a better prospector. Watch this video below where Todd shares how to prospect your warm market the right way.

John and Nadya Melton

John and Nadya Melton are 16 year veterans of the network marketing industry. While they achieved great success using traditional methods, it came at a price.

They were trading their time building their dream business while spending time away from their children. Then they discovered how to leverage social media so they can spend more time with their kids.

In just a short period of time they built a following on Facebook of over 75,000 and have personally recruited over 1,500 people in their career. What I learned from John and Nadya how to recruit, invite, follow up, and build a team all via Facebook.

Watch the video below where John and Nadya share some of their best Facebook tips at Ray Higdon's Top Earner Academy Live event.

Nicola Smith Jackson

Nicola Smith Jackson is a 20 year network marketing veteran with a team of over 300,000 distributors in more than 30 countries. In 2017 her team generated $36 million in sales. 

I first heard of Nicola when watching Ray Higdon's Top Earner Academy Live event via live stream. What I love about Nicola is her philosophy of serve then sell.

Ray invited Nicola to speak at the event to talk about team building. She introduced a concept called tap rooting. 

Don't know what that is? Watch the video from Ray's event to find out!

Jessica Higdon: 2 Simple Facebook Scripts to Get Leads

Today I was watching an amazing training by Jessica Higdon at the Top Earner Academy Live via live stream. I took plenty of notes, and what stood out for me were 2 Facebook scripts to get leads for your business.

If you're looking to grow your business using social media this will help you.

Jessica Higdon TEAL Takeaways

Before sharing these scripts, Jessica Higdon asked two questions to the audience.

  • First, how many are caught up in marketing that you're not prospecting?
  • Second, over the last 6 months, how many people have you actively prospected DAILY for the last 6 months? 

And I got to be honest with you, I haven't been prospecting as much as I should because I am apprehensive of approaching my Facebook friends.

Jessica then shared that success comes from doing just 2 simple functions:

  • Prospecting
  • Problem Solving

To get over your fear of prospecting Jessica says to ask yourself these 3 questions

  • “How can I solve people's problems today?”
  • “How can I serve?”
  • “How can I get more friends?”

Jessica Higdon 2 FB Scripts

Jessica then shared a simple way to connect with 10 people per day starting with your Facebook friends. The first thing you do is download your Friends and Followers from Facebook. To do this go to settings, then click on download a copy of your Facebook data.

Jessica Higdon

You will need to re-enter your Facebook password. Facebook will then send your information to your email address.

This will contain information on your Facebook friends and followers, including email addresses.

Once you have this data, start reaching out to your friends on Facebook with Facebook messenger. The goal is to seek conversations over conversions.

Social media is all about connecting to move people from cold to warm, to someone who wants to hear more about your opportunity.

Script #1: Friends You DON'T KNOW Personally

For those who you don't know personally on Facebook, Jessica recommends sending this type of message. Before you send this message take a look at their profile to find some status updates that resonate with you.

Make sure this sounds like you.

“Hey (first name), can I ask you a question? We've been friends on Facebook for (x) amount of time and I have never really connected, and I was wondering if you've been seeing my posts lately? Great to connect with you by the way. (Then give a compliment – e.g., I see you've got a baby girl she's absolutely beautiful, so do I).”

If they say “NO” they don't see your posts, reply with this.

“Oh weird. OK. FB settings are confusing LOL. I was wondering because you said “X” on your profile and thought my post may help…Well regardless it's good to connect!”

If they say “YES I see your posts”, reply with this.

“Oh OK Awesome! I am wondering if FB friends can see my stuff. I saw your profile you said (X) and thought some of my posts may help”

Script #2: Friends You KNOW Personally

For friends you personally know, you want to approach differently. You don't want to spend too much time building rapport, and Jessica recommends using something like this.

“Hey, just so you know catching up isn't the reason I reached out to you (although I do want to do that at some point), I remember you being (give them a meaningful compliment, such as super sharp and outgoing) and I immediately thought of you…I'd love to run an idea past you for a side project I'm doing, which wouldn't interfere with anything you have going on. Would you be open to taking a look or chatting?”

Just think of this. If you just reached out to 10 people every day, you will not only grow your warm market contacts by 3,650, but you could also enroll 60 new reps and/or customers into your business!

Doc's Thoughts on Jessica Higdon

Wasn't that helpful? Did you think of these scripts taught by Jessica Higdon at Top Earner Academy Live? 

I'd love to know! Share it in the comments below and let's start a conversation!

Want to learn how to do network marketing the right way? I highly recommend that you check out Rank Makers.

Rank Makers is a private Facebook group founded by industry legends Ray and Jessica Higdon. The purpose of the group is to teach network marketers the daily activities to get more leads, reps, and customers for your business.

Ray and Jessica teach you not to get addicted to whether people say “YES”, but to get addicted to the daily activities. When you get addicted to growing your skills, the results come naturally. You can read more about my review of Rank Makers here.

There are two ways you can be a part of Rank Makers. You can either pay monthly, or pay a one time fee to get lifetime access. I chose one time lifetime access. 

Since joining Rank Makers, I had one of my best days where I enrolled 6 customers in one day.  Pretty exciting stuff!

Here are more network marketing resources by Ray Higdon that will help you get more leads, reps, and customers into your business with ease.
