Dani Johnson – The Truth About MLM Success – Coastal Travel – DFI – Freedom!

Live Your Dreams BannerI recently ran across this article that Dani Johnson wrote. Dani Johnson is the only outside trainer we recommend in DFI Coastal Travel, based off of the results she has created.

In Coastal Travel, DFI we may not be MLM but if you are responsible or benefit from other people’s success or efforts this is good. Do you want them their results to increase? What is the one thing most people miss when they are working with or training some one new?

The Truth about MLM Success by Dani Johnson

You just enrolled a brand new associate into your Network Marketing business and you are afraid to tell them what it really takes to get the job done because they might quit. A reality in ANY business venture is that there is attrition…people quit. So let’s look at how you should prepare your new reps for the realities to come in their new business and how you can best set them up to succeed.

We’ve all heard the expression, “it’s a numbers game”. This rings true in all professions. As a school teacher for example, you know that a certain percentage of your students will get A’s and some will get F’s. That’s just the way it works. It’s called life.

I’ve watched this happen so many times while training home-based business builders. About 90% of people who bring new reps into their business opportunity don’t tell that new person what it’s really going to take to make it.

When you bring someone into your business, the responsibility has to be on that new person to build their own business. I’m not saying that you love them and leave them or drop kick them. When they first get started you say, “Listen Bob, I want you to pull out your calendar because we do presentations on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Pull out that calendar right now and make an appointment for these presentations. If you just started a part-time job there would be certain hours you would be required to show up at the workplace in order to get paid.”

“The difference here is that you are an independent business person and the downfall is that you can make bad choices causing your business not to be profitable. So Bob, these are some things that you will need to do. Tuesday nights at 7:15pm we have presentations and also Saturdays at 10:00am. I need you to book that time aside now and go all the way through the month booking those times. Just like in the work force, if you don’t show up, you don’t get paid. This is not a lottery ticket. Being successful in business requires work and dedication.”

Some of you that market consumables like nutrition products are afraid to tell the new associate that they need to get on autoship. When it comes time to tell them the importance of being on auto ship we become afraid because we think they might quit. You must be strong on this because it is the cost of doing business. Could you imagine Steve Jobs not using a Mac computer? If the CEO does not use his own company’s product, the company will fail and so will we.

You can’t allow the new rep to have the mindset that everything is free. This is not the lottery. You’ve got to be willing to tell that person what it’s really going to take. You are being dishonest if you’re not willing to tell them the truth.

If a new person tells you they want to earn a consistent professional level of income like 5, 10, or 20k per month, they need to know that won’t happen by chance. That’s going to happen by learning a job, mastering skills and consistently plugging in to stay on track so those skills continue to be mastered.

A professional basketball player doesn’t become great by just showing up at the games without practice and investment into skill development. The bottom line is that you get out what you put in.You have to be up front and honest with people in telling them what it takes to earn a professional level of income. “Bob, you say that you make $3k per month at your current job, right? How many hours per week does it take to earn that salary, 40? Well, since you don’t have an extra 40 hours to earn $3k in your home business, you have to realize that it will take you a while to get to that level of income.”

“Bob, you need to have new people in front of those Tuesday and Saturday presentations consistently. If you don’t, you’re not building your business. You’ve got to invest time and some resources into getting professional training.” If you are not directing new associates to the proper training tools then you are only hurting them. They will end up winging it, getting discouraged because they are not doing it right and they will start giving you excuses like they just don’t have the time to build the business.

Most MLM amateurs are selling new people how easy it is to become a millionaire like the business is a lottery. It is your obligation to inform your new reps that Network Marketing is a profession and that they must invest in skill development in order to have the success they desire. These people will thank you down the road for being straight forward and honest about what it really takes to succeed. What may seem uncomfortable at first will pay huge dividends in the future of your growing enterprise.

Do We Have a Solid Product?!

Live Your Dreams BannerWorking from home is an awesome experience when you are rewarded with time freedom and financial flexibility.  But the key is you will never get there if you don’t have a solid product.  Notice I didn’t say you need the “BEST” product because the truth is there is no such thing.  But you should market something that you benefit from, believe in and actually own on your own.  I’ll break down more specifics on having the best or a solid product as we go here.  Just follow along this can determine your success or lack off.  This can be the difference in spinning your wheels and struggling to actually reaching your goals or blasting past them and having to set new and better goals.

OK so let’s break it down, first with marketing something you benefit from.  You will do a much better job of marketing and presenting any product if you have actually gotten a benefit from what you market.  Now in my case I market a travel product so therefore I should get some travel benefits from my product.  Even if I don’t use it maybe I’m “disabled” and can’t travel I should be able to transfer part of my package and get the enjoyment of knowing that my product is helping someone else.  That’s still a benefit.

The key is everything about your product does not have to “revolutionize” your life.  Companies out there all over the world act like what they have will change the world forever, and maybe it will.  What I’m telling you is if you have any solid product you can change your family’s life for ever.  If you market nutritional supplements, it is important that you do get a benefit you can see and feel.  Look if your company offers 100 products you don’t need to benefit from all of them.  You just have to have a benefit you can believe it.  Therefore you will be more successful at marketing and profiting while you work from home.

DFI_BannerSecond, your product should actually be something you believe in.  When I say you believe in it, I’m talking more about your passion.  Let’s face it who doesn’t need good health? We would all say yes to that. Not many people are choosing to race to their tombstone anytime soon.  Now that being said even though everyone knows they need good health not every one actively pursues good heath in their diet, exercise and vitamins. Some of them may buy your product if you sold supplements but the fact is if they do not really believe in the benefit of good health and they are not passionate in their every day life they will not market that supplement with passion.  You must believe in your product to the point that you are passionate about the benefits and how it can help someone.

Finally, by this point it should go without saying.  But if you benefit from a product, believe in a product you should own it.  Because if you own it you prove you are a product of the product and you are willing to pay for it.  It’s amazing how many people attempt to market a product they supposedly believe in but they don’t actually own it.  Let me ask you, If you were looking to buy a new reliable car but you learn the owner of the dealership actually owned a cheaper alternative, maybe even one of his competitors how would you feel?  How silly would that be? Why would you buy a car from him/her?  If you sold supplements (easy example) and your clients came to your home, office or met you for coffee and saw you taking Wal-Mart vitamins what would your clients think? Now you maybe that slow poke that doesn’t get it and think, well I would not show them the “cheaper” vitamins.  The point is, you would be a hypocrite and how far will that get you and is that really a product you should market?  Probably not you may do better actually working at Wal-Mart.

So in closing having a solid product is required for any long-term success when you work from home.  So do you get a benefit from your product, do you really believe in your product and do you own it? Are you a product of the product? If this product or service you have is going to be the key to your goals and dreams.  If it’s going to give you the financial flexibility you want, time freedom you need and memories with your friends, family and those you care about., why the heck would you not want a solid product.  Remember, believing you have the best product on the planet is fine.  But no product is the best forever hence this thing call innovation.  So be realistic and strategic and find something you can believe in, benefit from and even own on your own.

You Can Reshape That Box You’re Living In!!

 

Live Your Dreams Banner

Do you ever feel limited?  Do you feel like you are on a treadmill that is going faster and faster but you can’t seem to catch up?  Do you feel trapped like there is nothing you can do to improve things?  The stress is overwhelming, then you may hear of a new job, opportunity or home business… but then you are concerned that it won’t work for you or it’s simply not possible.

phil413-1You do not want to miss out on an opportunity or a solution in your life and neither would I.  But I’ve walked away from things that could have helped me and so have you.  You see we live in a box that we allow life to put around us at times.  We just have to make do with the best that we can with what we are dealt with.  But the box is more like a brick wall that we keep hitting our head against.

Steve Jobs in an interview in his mid twenties when asked how he was so successful, was it luck or what was it.  He stated that when you realized you actually don’t live in a box that confines you but you actually live in a box that you have the power to reshape.  Life becomes much more enjoyable.  So your mind controls your lifestyle versus past experience or broken beliefs that maybe come from our childhood or past failures.  Just because you’ve struggled for the success that you want doesn’t mean successful people just get lucky or you have to be born into a successful family.

If that was the case then there is no reason for you to look for a better solution.  It’s why many people think of working from home has to be some type of scam or untrue. But the millions of people who do it every day would never doubt the legitimacy of such an idea.  How could they?  It’s how they feed their families.  So remember Steve Jobs reshaped our lifestyle and ideas of computers and he predicted he could move the walls that others thought were impossible 20+ years ago.  If he didn’t believe it and then prove it we would not have iphones or ipads today.

You may not be Steve Jobs yet…  But what he understood was a basic business principle that we can all adhere to.  Even if you aren’t Steve Jobs, if you worship a big God and not the limitations of your current experience a way will be made (through you for you by him).  So do you worship your limitations or God, your actions and the direction you take is the only fruit anyone can ever judge.

March Hero of the Month with DFI Coastal Travel

Live Your Dreams Banner
“I can honestly say I love this company and what they do for their people!” ~ Shawn Sheppeleclip image002 thumb Shawn Scheppele, Hero of the MonthCongratulations to Shawn Scheppele for being chosen as the DFI Hero of the Month!!

Before becoming an independent business owner, Shawn worked in corporate America for Tony Robins. He started at the bottom and was quickly promoted to developing three divisions of the company and increasing on-the-road sales from $68,000 to over $200,000. Despite enjoying his work and excelling in his career, he became dissatisfied with building a successful company for someone else.

With the desire for freedom and control of his time, income, and destiny, Shawn attended First Steps to Success with Dani Johnson, which laid a foundation for him to achieve his dreams. In his first three years with Coastal Travel, he never missed an event, and still regularly plugs into training. While there have been tough times in his business, he never quit, never gave up, and the fruit of his perseverance resulted in $39,000 in just 12 days! One day, he made two platinum sales in a single day, generating profits of $19,410! We call this a “Truck Day” because that is enough cash to buy a truck!

clip image004 thumb Shawn Scheppele, Hero of the Monthclip image006 thumb Shawn Scheppele, Hero of the Month
Without BIG goals, you will never really accomplish anything; and Shawn has a number of goals, both in business as well as in his personal life. His current #1 business goal is a sale a day! A quarter of a million dollars in 2015, a summer dream vacation at Disney World using his Coastal Package, selecting the right college for his son, increased investments in real estate and silver, giving even more to Kings Ransom projects and to his church, and doing some special things for his wife, (Not telling what! Don’t want to spoil it. She may read this.) … these represent just a few of the goals totally within reach for this month’s DFI’s Director of the Month, Shawn Scheppele. With a 10 year track record, Shawn’s consistent work ethic has created a strong foundation for achieving not only these goals but more besides. “The keys to reaching these goals, ie. what’s it going to take to get these done, is, among other things, faith, determination, focus, strategy and that 4 letter word (work)! His vision is to continue to provide people with “a place to succeed,” says Shawn.

Beyond the personal and business goals, Shawn’s ultimate goal is to continue to grow in Christ. He said, “The Lord is why this article is being written, not me. On my knees is how I start and finish each day. PERIOD!” Unlike many successful businessmen, Shawn believes God gave him an assignment to help other people personally, professionally and financially. Striving to create a safe place for success, he offers keys to an opportunity in which he comes alongside his team members, coaching them through a simple process. He follows and teaches a duplicatable presentation system: “It’s all about the presentations – that’s what makes money. The system is to support and encourage and provides strategy. Presentations must be skilled, on purpose, laser focused, and often repeated.” His deepest desire is to “set the captives free” through encouragement and inspiration.

clip image009 thumb Shawn Scheppele, Hero of the Month
“I have a business today, because of what I’ve learned from Dani Johnson. Plain and simple. When people are trained well, they do well. And the company makes sure everyone gets trained by giving them access to Dani Johnson– that’s why so many people have success. I’m grateful the company cares about their people enough for them to get the training they need to be successful. It works!” ~ Shawn Scheppele

On behalf of everyone in DFI, thank you, Shawn, for all that you do and the leader you are in our company and the example you set of how it’s done!!!

You are DFI’S HERO OF THE MONTH!

Why Should You Start a Home Based Business?!!

9 Reasons to Start a Home-Based Business

Live Your Dreams BannerThe “Lifestyle” approach to marketing is an innovative yet natural way to gain financial independence. It’s innovative because it defies the traditional business model of relying on advertising to generate slow-building product sales. It’s natural because instead of high-pressure sales tactics and expensive advertising, it relies on the concept of helping yourself through helping others.

That’s why when I started to list nine great reasons why this is the perfect day to start owning your life, I had a really hard time. It wasn’t because it was hard to come up with nine reasons, it was hard to limit the list to just nine!

To help me narrow the many reasons down to just a few, I went to some of our most successful partners. They told me that for them, the benefit isn’t just making more money; it is enjoying a whole new lifestyle. These are the nine biggest benefits of that lifestyle.

Quality of Life

Take a Well-Deserved Vacation

homepagegraphicmontageconWhen was the last time you took a vacation? How long was it? For most people vacations are controlled by their employer. They are told when they can go and how long they can take. Wouldn’t you like to take as long a vacation as you want, when you are ready to go? When you own the business, you set the vacation schedule!

Spend More Time with Your Family

If you spend 40, 60 or even 80 hours a week at work, how much time are you spending with your family? How many dance recitals or HBB.Family.Petsparent-teacher meetings have you missed? These years of family time that you are losing can never be regained. Make the choice to own your life today, and start giving your family the love and attention that both you and they deserve.

Give Your Children a Stay-at-Home Parent

Life is full of tough choices. You hated the idea of taking your kids to daycare instead of being home with them every day. You had to, though, just to make ends meet. Very few jobs today pay enough to let one parent stay home. When you live and work at home, you can earn as much as you need and still be there for your children. Your spouse may be able to stay home, too. You won’t miss any more of the crucial bonding years with your children. You decide how much time you need to spend working, and take the family time that you need.

Financial Freedom

Eliminate Debts

Part of owning your life is owning your financial situation. If you have debts, you can spend the extra money you can make paying some of them off. Get rid of those high-interest credit card payments. Pay off your car. Remove some of the stress in your life by eliminating some of your debts.

Pay Your Mortgage Off Quicker

A home mortgage is one of the biggest expenses most people have. Wouldn’t you like to get yours paid off sooner? Just one extra principal payment each year can take years off of your loan. Imagine what two or three could do! Imagine making an extra payment each month! Paying your mortgage off sooner can mean having to work less in your later years.

Earn More Money to Help Buy Your Dream Car or Home

Dream Home InsideOwning your business can mean earning more money for the things you want. Because your labor goes to make money for you instead of a corporation, you can earn more money for the hours that you work. You may want to put some of this money toward the car or home you have always wanted. That is what financial freedom is all about.

Increase Your Savings

Enjoy Valuable Tax Savings

Saving money is the same as making more money. When you own a home-based business, part of your home becomes business space. The rooms you work in, the computer and printer you use, and your Internet service and cell phone all may become business expenses. This means they may be deductible on your taxes, saving you money! That is more money you can put to work paying off debts or taking a hard-earned vacation.

Save for a Rainy Day

When you work for someone else, it is hard to have extra money at the end of the month for savings. If your car broke down, could you pay to get it fixed? If your child needed braces, could you afford them? The extra money you can earn with your own business can make this possible. You can put some of that money in the bank for a rainy day. That way, when the bumps in the road of life come along, you will be ready for them.

Add to Your Retirement Savings

Do have enough money in the bank to retire when you are ready? Does your present job let you save enough money every month so that you can ever stop working? Jobs today rarely come with company-paid retirement plans. They make you put your money into stocks or IRAs if you want to be able to retire. That can be hard to do when you barely make enough to pay the bills. Your home-based business can give you the extra money to start building up your retirement savings now.
