What is more valuable - time or money?

Bluebonnets everywhere! And they just keep on producing all over the place once they've been planted!

Jim Rohn said "Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you can't get more time."

It's the end of March and another super month of people joining our business to take back control of their lives!

It’s also the beginning of spring and the middle of the current Prime Recruiting Season.

When done correctly, the productivity you achieve over the next 90 days can cause your downline to be in full-blown momentum by the middle of summer. Then by next fall during the next Prime Recruiting Season, your downline could explode from all the extra seed planting you did in the spring.

Be sure that you have a good supply of consistent leads flowing through your pipeline. If you do not let me know and I will refer you to some excellent lead sources. Every month I buy two shares in our team Pay Per Click coop and we are signing people up every month from this coop using our team online marketing website system.

I caution those who are only using social media to depend on for building their business. This can be a deceiving business building method because it’s just that – ‘social’ – media.

How many people have signed up this month from social media methods? I’ll answer that question for myself - none. We have however signed up several distributors from our pay per click leads and have several others who are interested.

What social media can do for your business is take up a lot of your valuable time. Time that could be spent in calling and connecting with real people who are interested in starting a business with you. These are people who have actually requested that you call them and assist them in starting a business. Why not be spending time with these people? They are out there waiting for you to pick up the phone and call them!

A social media connection usually already has a business so really all you could be doing is spinning your wheels with them. Yes it’s great to make a connection and build a relationship because you never know when someone you meet from social media could be in the looking zone that's true too.

I've been making connections online for over thirteen years and have never depended on social media solely to build my business. In fact, it's a very small piece of the pie. A sliver actually because of the saturation of the Internet over the years especially in this area.

The point I’m making here is if someone is depending totally on social media to build their business they may be ‘deceived’ and could end up with a very slow building business in the long run. So why not spread your seeds out?

The better way to build your business is with people who are in the looking zone. That means hot/warm market or cold market. You choose. The business will not build by itself and it will not build with social media alone.

It's important to consistently be putting people in your pipeline and then follow through and follow up and duplicate the same process with your team! If all there is is a bunch of social media groopies all hanging out socializing, then who's building a real business and more importantly who's mentoring the team?

Meantime -

1) If people wanted to make more money before, they really want to now.

2) Tax Refund checks are giving people the extra funds to get started.

3) People are looking and getting started. Someone is going to sell or sponsor them why not you?

4) When approached "correctly", most people are nice, pleasant, and interested especially when they requested to be called in the first place. Make sense?

We encourage distributors if you want to get your business to grow then double, triple, or do everything you can to multiply/duplicate your efforts. This means taking Massive Action in picking up your phone and calling people who have asked you to call and help them right now!

By the way if you are looking for leads, here's another lead source we've used and recommend from -

Secret to success...

“Most people laugh when they hear the secret to success is ‘giving’, then again most people are no where near as successful as they wish to be.” ‘The Go Giver’ & ‘Go Givers Sell More’ – Bob Burg & John David Mann –

You’ve got to give first to receive!


Bob and I connected several years ago. I've spoken with him and read his books throughout the years and love his philosophy of giving before receiving. I appreciate his style of teaching us real people skills that we can actually use to build solid and rewarding relationships in our business and our lives! We are on the same page when it comes to building relationships! Bob has a real passion for people!

People will do business with, and refer business to, those people they like, know and trust! So true Bob! We appreciate you and all you give!


Keep Following Your Passion!

Focus On The Down Hill Result!

Are you always focusing on the pain of the uphill battle or looking forward to the prize when you finish going all the way to the top of the hill as you gaze back at the gorgeous view from the top!

I’m starting to get out and take walks again for exercise and just be out enjoying the sunshine, fresh air and nature. It’s been over two years since I’ve really done any work outs and it sure is tough! I knew it was not going to be easy and it’s going to hurt, no doubt. No pain no gain as they always says right? I’ve gained a few pounds since regaining my health back too and it’s time to focus on shaping up! There are a lot of hills here in Briafcliff too so it’s brutal on this new walker! Huff huff puff puff! Heeve Hooo up that hill I go!

Well today was time to put on the shorts and walking shoes and head out for a nice brisk walk. Opps, after getting out a ways it was a bit chillier than I thought even though the sun is really shinning. As I walked around the corner to the other street and saw the yard where I could have taken a short cut right into our back yard this small still voice said…. You just keep on walking focusing on the end results!

There’s one really big hill that my husband challenged me to walk up with him. Let me tell you I was huffing and puffing the entire way up, going slow and actually walking backwards so I could see the lake and not focus on how hard it was going up!!! When we got to the top it was the most beautiful view! I felt exhilarated! He said “now aren’t you glad you decided to go all the way?” Yes! Totally worth it! Each time now it gets easier too!

Some people are so afraid of the hills or taking to the road and getting out of their comfort zone because fear paralyzes them when focusing on how hard that uphill battle is going to be or what the cost will be to travel the road.

Why are some people scared to take chances or reach a little farther out of their comfort zone or continue that walk no matter how difficult the hills get or how big the challenges or the obstacles standing in their way?

Why is it that some people just keep charging ahead no matter what and some just keep blaming the economy, their job, their boss, their spouse, their kids, their dog, who knows what else because there's always some excuse or obstacle for some people to not achieve their dreams right? Something is always going to pop up and get in their way. News flash! Everyone has circumstances! Yet there are some people who do not let anything get in the way of accomplishing their dreams and goals. They see the up hill and focus on the result of the climb!

It’s never about the money either. People are always spending money on ‘stuff’ because it’s something they want. They may not even need this ‘stuff’ but by golly they’ll spend money on more junk. So why don’t they spend it on developing themselves, their health, or their business and what is the pay off if they don’t? They don’t become a leader, they stay broke, continue with bad health, out of shape, and their business does not duplicate.

Why not start focusing on the results you’re going to see once you get up that hill and when you step out and travel the roads to your company events! Get on the phone and start calling people to find out what their dreams and goals are too and ask how you can best support them in their downhill victory!

Are you going to take that chance and be at your next company event? And if not why not? What is really holding you back from being there and is it really something that can be overcome? What’s really stopping you from achieving your dreams and your full potential to become the best you can be?
