Are You Up For the Home Business 90 Day Challenge?

The Home Business 90 Day Challenge

The most crucial thing you can do in your new home business is to make a commitment to stay consistent with it for at least the next 90 days! You cannot judge your daily results with this system or any other system or “shortcut” out there to help you succeed.

Just like many things in life results take time to measure. The unique part of this business is that you can make a lot of money with a success rate of less than 1% and this can be done in less than an hour per day. This guide is meant to help get your business on the right track from day one so that in the next 90 days you can have a profitable business that is growing every day whether you recruit, make a sale or not.

We will start by going over the tools and scripts, then we will go over a daily action plan. This 90 day plan of action is meant to go along with our Train to Retain success system.

Building YOUR list

build your listThis is the first and most important step for building your home business. Without a list of people to talk to, there is absolutely no way you can be successful. We are going to cover three ways to build your list including your current center of influence, social marketing, and leads you purchase.

Your Center of Influence- You should try to make a list of at least 100 people. There is a memory jogger to help you think of the people you know. You do not have to contact them all right away but this is your best chance of building a business fast because they already know you. Start with everyone you have in your cell phone and email contact list.

Social Networks- There are a lot of social networking sites but just to keep it simple we are only going to talk about Facebook. There are more than 800 million people with Facebook profiles and millions of them being Network Marketers. With this strategy we are only looking for Network Marketers. If you do not already have a Facebook profile then focus on the other methods of building your list.

Step 1 would be finding Network Marketers. This is very easy with the search tab write in keywords such as MLM, Network Marketing, Home Business, Work at home, Online Marketing, or the name of any mlm company. If you are new to MLM and don’t know of any companies, I would browse through the MLM rankings website.

Step 2 is to send them a message. Before you do this though, I usually recommend going through their profile, about me, or photos if its not private. I try to find something I have in common with this person like pictures of their dog, or favorite sports team. I never lead with business, I like to compliment the type of dog they have, or if I see sports/political/music photos I will talk about that. People like to talk about themselves, so just let them talk and listen.

Step 3 is get their name, email, and phone number and add them to your list. With Social Marketing I do not recommend inviting them to look at your business right away. This is more of a long term strategy. To build your business fast over this 90 day challenge, I would contact your center of influence and leads you can purchase. The goal here is to build a list of a minimum of 1,000 network marketers in your first year as this will help you in the future.

Leads that you purchase- This can be a very great way to build your business, but you have to be willing to go through the numbers. Most people do not buy from people they do not know, like, and trust. Most of the time this is a 2 step process, you can start with the invites covered in this training but most of the time people will not be interested the first time you contact them. If you talk to someone that sounds good make sure to add them to your permanent list and stay in contact with them every 90 days or so.

If you are interested in taking part in this Home Business 90 Day Challenge, contact me below so I can get you plugged into our team and we can start building your list of emails and phone numbers and building a massive network marketing organization for you!

I can’t WAIT to hear your success story,

…and I will see YOU on the beaches of the world!

Productivity Improvement Method for Home Business Owners!

Productivity Improvement Method for Home Business Owners!

productivity improvementHey everyone, Joe Stewart here! Hope everyone is having an awesome President’s day weekend! Today I wanted to take some time and write you a brief article that will cover a few tips and tricks that I use on a day to day basis to increase my productivity in my home business. When you run a home business, YOU are the boss! So it is totally up to you to improve your productivity so you remain effective, and keep your business profitable!

It takes a lot of time, energy, and focus in a home business to have everything running smoothly and quickly turning a profit. The problem with most people is they get started in business, then sit back on the lazy boy and sit there… waiting for checks to “magically roll in”. It doesn’t work that way folks… Below I will go over some things I do to increase my productivity while working at home.

Increase Productivity Tips and Tricks

-You must set realistic goals and tasks for yourself every month, week, even day.

-When doing your work routine for the day whether it be actively prospecting, or doing some passive marketing like this blog post, or recording a video of yourself, set a stopwatch of timer. Only allow 30 minutes to an hour for each assignment. You don’t want to get stuck on one project all day. Try this and watch your productivity increase.

-More than 90% of your time must be spent on income producing activities. For a home business owner, the only two things that bring us money every week is marketing and communicating with prospects. Nothing more, and nothing less!

walking your dog-Take a 15 minute break every hour or so. Go outside, walk around your neighborhood, walk your dog, have a glass of water. Sitting in front of your computer at your desk all day isn’t fun… probably not good for you either.

-Exercise as much as you can! You would be surprised how much this helps increase productivity and can even bring up your energy levels. Go for a walk, run, bike ride, or swim. Get in a routine of doing this and watch your energy levels go up as time goes on! Try it!

-Check and reply to your emails twice a day, set times for this. Like once at 9am and again at 5pm. Read and respond to emails at these two times only, instead of refreshing your inbox over and over every hour to see if a lead or client wrote you.

-On top of your daily work from home routine, you also want to set away some time in the morning or at night for education. Whether it is reading a book or educational magazine, or watching an online webinar or course you purchased. We can sit here and market all day, but we still have to feed our brains with new information everyday to stay on top of things, and stay ahead of our competition.

If you have enjoyed this article about how to increase your productivity, please share it!

Self-Publishing Empire: Why You Should Write Your Own Book and Publish it Yourself

Why You Should Write Your Own Book

joe stewarts new book self publishing empireHey everyone! Joe here, and today I wanted to write a brief article going over some of the main reasons I decided to write my own book, and why you should write your own book as well.

On top of the fact that it is just pretty bad ass to be able to call yourself an author, it also gets your brand in front of people you normally wouldn’t be able to attract via your online blog, email list or YouTube channel.

You are now targeting readers, people who still get their information from the book store instead of an online news site or blog like this one.

Take Your Brand to a Whole New Level

You want to evaluate your brand as a whole right now. What do you have to offer? What products have you released to your market place? Do you give true value to your fans and potential followers?

As an author, you may take yourself from an average blogger who writes about (your niche) to now a respected figure in your certain niche.

Look at how Mike Dillard wrote one of the first attraction marketing courses for network marketers many years ago. It positioned him as an expert in the field of attraction marketing, and people were probably hunting him down for his phone number and email just BEGGING him to let them join his primary company and receive his mentorship.

Propels You to an Authority in Your Industry

joey stewart mlmNow look… I don’t care if your a sports blogger, home business owner like myself, or a doctor who wants to prove their credibility by writing a book.

As soon as you have a published book (with valuable information inside obviously) the people who follow your market and industry will now notice you as an industry leader or authority figure. Everybody wants to work with the guy who ‘wrote the book’ so they say.

From personal experience, it is pretty cool when I am striking up a conversation with local people at a coffee shop or business luncheon and they ask me for a business card.

I try to have a few copies of my book in my backpack or laptop case, so when they request my business card, I tell them I ran out of business cards but can give them a free copy of my new book. You see the difference in posture here?

You’re immediately positioned as the authoritative figure of the business or hobby you wrote a book about.

Well guys I hope you have enjoyed this article with my reasons as to why you should write a book. Leave your thoughts, comments, or questions below!

I will see YOU on the beaches of the world my friends 🙂

If you want to start writing but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start your home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

By taking advantage of the affiliate marketing programs that are currently available to you on this very page, you can make money and improve your marketing skills. Remember, you can always expand into other areas and venture out totally on your own later. Right now, get marketing and get clicking.

Daily Marketing Routine for Home Business Owners

Daily Marketing Routine for Home Business Owners

daily work from routineHey guys, I am doing a quick blog post today for the people on my board of directors in my marketing team. I had some people on my team asking me for some daily action plans about what they should be doing each day to grow their existing network, as well as expand their team throughout different states or even countries.

*Note, I am writing out this daily marketing routine for members of my front line organization. But if you are in a similar network marketing company, feel free to use these tips with your own marketing websites, giveaways and other promotions etc.

It is so cool that we have the opportunity to open up sales and distribution channels throughout all 50 states just by marketing via social networks, and offline marketing methods. The power behind this time leveraging system, and our automated marketing funnel is one of the many secrets of the rich!

The automated marketing funnels just make it even better, because we can be having a beer on a cruise somewhere, all while fresh leads and people sold on home businesses are opting in to your capture page then being directed to the 6 minute millionaire video, and then being almost ‘commanded‘ to join EPX immediately after the video. You are now making money on complete auto pilot! (The automated marketing website I am talking about is your Get EPX site with the 6 minute millionaire video/$1,000 giveaway).

Social Media Marketing Techniques

Facebook: Obviously we all use Facebook each and everyday. Why not get paid while we’re online? I usually join Facebook groups pertaining to our industry such as MLM, Home business, network marketing, online marketing, health and wellness and so on. Once your a member of these Facebook groups, you can write a quick 3 lines about the product or company you are promoting. The 3 lines that have proven to work best are:

1.Here is what I got (Groundbreaking home business/new software etc)

2. Here’s what it is going to do for you (Help you earn extra cash, learn REAL marketing tactics)

3. Here’s what I want you to do next (Click the link & enter your name and email for more information.

While you are on Facebook you should also go over to your Facebook chat bar, and message old high school friends or people from work. Don’t pitch your new business right away, just see how they are doing and catch up ask them questions exactly like you normally would. Then maybe when they ask “what have you been up to?” or “Where do you work these days?” etc, you can then talk about your business and peak their curiosity a little bit.

My Facebook Marketing Tactics

Again, even if they are not interested in starting an online business and getting the awesome tax benefits we do 😉 still tell them to enter their name and email into your GetEPX website so they are entered to win $1,000. As long as they enter their correct email into the marketing page, they will be sent pre-written emails that tell them more about Why EPX is the best home business, why the timing and product is perfect etc. You will be surprised how many people sign up just after reading these professional emails that the company drips to them.

YouTube Marketing Tips

With YouTube, I normally record myself giving testimonials about our products, the ingredients, etc. You can also record videos about making money at home, how to lose weight, work out tips, basically anything related to health, wealth, fitness, supplements, or anything similar to what EPX has to offer. During these videos, be sure to have a call to action in the middle to end. Tell the viewer to click the link below the video (paste a link to your GetEpx page) and enter their name and email.

i.e “So here’s what I want you to do next…”

Click here for my YouTube Marketing Secrets

twitter marketingTwitter Marketing Ideas

Same thing with Twitter marketing strategies, you can post a few lines about your product or business you have to offer. You have 140 characters including the text to your link to get your message across, but still Twitter is a gold mine for people looking to make or spend money online.

Offline Marketing Methods

First off, brochures, T-shirts and other offline marketing methods are VERY affordable, and you can place them at local bulletin boards around campus, your job or community. You don’t have to go door to door and become a crazy salesman guy to make money in a home business. Let the brochure do all the telling and selling for you.

You can also buy business cards, car decals, or anything you might need to market your business. (Talk with your tax guy about the benefits of having a decal promoting your home business on your vehicle since it is now your “company car” 🙂

I use personalized labels with my name, phone number and website instead of writing the info with a pen to maintain a professional image. These brochures can also be placed in car windows, bank tellers sometimes allow brochures on their desk. Look at local businesses and see if they have different business cards and brochures on their desk, these places usually allow us marketers to leave a few brochures on the table.

Weekly Webinars/Conference Calls

Every Monday at 9pm EST we have live, weekly conference calls and sometimes Google Hangouts with some of Empower Network’s top producers. You can share this link with people who have questions about EN or want to see what all the buzz is about.

I hope this training has helped everyone! I will add some links to more resources and update this post as we move forward and methods get revamped or change. You guys rock!

I look forward to seeing everybody on cruise ships & the beaches of the world this year, because we are riding a HUGE wave with Empower right now and for those of you who have been doing home business for a while now understand how much money is up for grabs!

Let’s Rock this thing!

Steve & Gina Merritt: MonaVie Millionaires & Crown Black Diamonds

Who is Steve Merritt: MonaVie Millionaire & Crown Black Diamond

steve and gina merrittSo if you have found this blog post today then I would assume you were searching for some information about Steve Merritt from Mona Vie. Steve and Gina Merritt have made millions of dollars via their Mona Vie business and are some of the top income earners inside of Mona Vie & the direct sales industry as a whole. Before they found Mona Vie, they had their backs up against the wall, and didn’t think their credit card was gonna go through when they decided to join Mona Vie years ago.

Steve and Gina Merritt went head first into their Mona Vie business years ago because they were broke, busted & disgusted. They had nowhere to turn, but they both had big dreams. They followed their mentors Brig & Lita Hart and Charlie & Debbie Kalb, by drinking the Mona Vie product. Steve was a professional water skier for decades, and Gina was a flight attendant for 20 plus years.

How Did Steve & Gina Merritt Build Mona Vie?

By drinking Mona Vie, they both noticed the pain in their joints and body went away. They had more energy and were sleeping better. So once they had this strong personal testimonial, they began sharing it with their friends and helping their friends look good, feel good, and get free. In the process, Steve and Gina Merritt are now also free from their jobs, and financially free.

They use that same line to this date when prospecting new friends for the Mona Vie opportunity. They ask people if they want to look better, feel better, and get free from their 9-5 job. If people are not interested in one of the three options, the Merritt’s move on.

Steve & Gina Merritt’s Continued Success

steve merritt monavieAfter building their Mona Vie business for almost 7 years now, Steve and Gina Merritt have went on 19 free vacations, received over a million dollars in one time cash bonuses (not including the millions they earned in residual commissions). They have built their dream homes, and Steve was awarded a Free Lamborghini when they hit the prestigious rank of Crown Black Diamond in Mona Vie.

In conclusion, Steve and Gina Merritt are an awesome couple, and some of the greatest network marketers to walk the earth. Their passion for helping people get healthy, wealthy, and financially free is admirable.

The Only Tip Steve & Gina Merritt Left Out…

The only thing Steve and Gina Merritt don’t teach their Mona Vie team is how to get branded as the leading network marketer. Although Steve Merritt has his own professionally designed blog you can see here: http://stevemerritt.com he doesn’t teach the people in his team to do the same. They are still teaching people to talk to everybody within 3 feet of you, give people a CD or DVD to watch to hear more about Mona Vie, and then follow up and invite them to a Mona Vie tasting party or home business review.

If you want to hear more about this attraction marketing method they are using to sign up new Mona Vie distributors on complete auto pilot, I highly recommend you contact me below, or click the banner below so I can help you get your Mona Vie business from Star to Diamond over the next 90 days.

Coaching: Why Being a Coach Can Change Your Life For the Better

Coaching: Why Being a Coach Can Change Your Life For the Better

coachingWhen you hear the word “coach”, what comes first into your mind? Do you picture a basketball team with a man/woman shouting out directions?

Or perhaps a football team with a man/woman pacing to and fro and calling out the names of the players?

Coaching is no longer reserved to sports teams; it is now one of the key concepts in leadership and management.

Why is coaching popular?

Coaching levels the playing field.

Coaching is one of the six emotional leadership styles proposed by Daniel Goleman. Moreover, it is a behavior or role that leaders enforce in the context of situational leadership. As a leadership style, coaching is used when the members of a group or team are competent and motivated, but do not have an idea of the long-term goals of an organization. This involves two levels of coaching: team and individual. Team coaching makes members work together. In a group of individuals, not everyone may have nor share the same level of competence and commitment to a goal.

A group may be a mix of highly competent and moderately competent members with varying levels of commitment. These differences can cause friction among the members. The coaching leader helps the members level their expectations. Also, the coaching leader manages differing perspectives so that the common goal succeeds over personal goals and interests. In a big organization, leaders need to align the staffs’ personal values and goals with that of the organization so that long-term directions can be pursued.

Coaching builds up confidence and competence.

Individual coaching is an example of situational leadership at work. It aims to mentor one-on-one building up the confidence of members by affirming good performance during regular feedbacks; and increase competence by helping the member assess his/her strengths and weaknesses towards career planning and professional development.

Depending on the individual’s level of competence and commitment, a leader may exercise more coaching behavior for the less-experienced members. Usually, this happens in the case of new staffs. The direct supervisor gives more defined tasks and holds regular feedback for the new staff, and gradually lessens the amount of coaching, directing, and supporting roles to favor delegating as competence and confidence increase.

Coaching promotes individual and team excellence.

Excellence is a product of habitual good practice. The regularity of meetings and constructive feedback is important in establishing habits. Members catch the habit of constantly assessing themselves for their strengths and areas for improvement that they themselves perceive what knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to acquire to attain team goals.

In the process, they attain individually excellence as well. An example is in the case of a musical orchestra: each member plays a different instrument. In order to achieve harmony of music from the different instrument, members will polish their part in the piece, aside from practicing as an ensemble. Consequently, they improve individually as an instrument player.

buy what's working now MLM

Coaching develops high commitment to common goals.

A coaching leader balances the attainment of immediate targets with long-term goals towards the vision of an organization.

As mentioned earlier, with the alignment of personal goals with organizational or team goals, personal interests are kept in check. By constantly communicating the vision through formal and informal conversations, the members are inspired and motivated. Setting short-term team goals aligned with organizational goals; and making an action plan to attain these goals can help sustain the increased motivation and commitment to common goals of the members.

Coaching produces valuable leaders.

Leadership by example is important in coaching. A coaching leader loses credibility when he/she cannot practice what he/she preaches. This means that a coaching leader should be well organized, highly competent is his/her field, communicates openly and encourages feedback, and has a clear idea of the organization’s vision-mission-goals.

By vicarious and purposive learning, members catch the same good practices and attitudes from the coaching leader, turning them into coaching leaders themselves. If a member experiences good coaching, he/she is most likely to do the same things when entrusted with formal leadership roles.

Some words of caution though: coaching is just one of the styles of leadership. It can be done in combination with the other five emotional leadership styles depending on the profile of the emerging team. Moreover, coaching as a leadership style requires that you are physically, emotionally, and mentally fit most of the time since it involves two levels of coaching: individual and team.

Your members expect you to be the last one to give up or bail out in any situation especially during times of crises. A coaching leader must be conscious that coaching entails investing time on each individual, and on the whole team. Moreover, that the responsibilities are greater since while you are coaching members, you are also developing future coaches as well.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about coaching and different leadership styles!

Why You Must Invest In Education… Not Necessarily College Though

Why You Must Invest In Education… Not Necessarily College Though

college scamHello my friends! First off I would like to thank you for stopping by my web site today! So if you have found yourself on this blog post then I would assume you were on Google doing some research on why you should invest in yourself through an education, but not necessarily through college. So what exactly do I mean by that?

Lets just face the facts folks…

If your looking to LEARN something, like a trade or how to become a doctor or lawyer, than yes… You must invest in your higher education and go to college for many years so you can work in the career path of your choice.

On the other hand…

If your looking to make a lot of money, then going to college is probably the wrong place to be… Why do I say that? Well for one, the 4-10 years that you are attending college you are obviously going to accumulate a lot of debt and a lot of interest on top of that debt in the years to come. Along with spending a lot more money then you usually would just being in college with all your friends and hot girls.

So if your looking to make a lot of money right now, without the college piece of paper, what should you do?

Well from my personal experience, starting a business from home is your best bet… And yes, you can start your own business without a college piece of paper. Hell, you could start one without a high school diploma, it doesn’t really matter… All you need is a few hundred bucks to start and the drive and determination to make that hundred bucks back and then get into the profit.

So obviously if your going to start your own business, you will need to educate yourself and invest in that learning process heavily. The people who are afraid to invest in their education don’t truly want success that bad…

You are going to need to take marketing courses online, where you learn how to generate traffic to the website of your business and all of your companies social media networks like your Facebook fan page, Youtube, Twitter and so on… Without investing in marketing training and strategies you are going to waste a lot of money in the long run hiring other people who charge a lot of money (like me) to do work that you should have learned how to do yourself.is college a waste of time

I would also recommend investing in monthly subscriptions to websites, or magazines affiliated with your business choice. If you start a home business like I did, you would probably read Success and Success From Home magazine, Networking Times, Forbes, Fortune and so on… These monthly magazines always have up to date tricks and tools for sale (or free) to help you build your business.

The best part about these marketing courses and magazines/books from the library? They are all cheap… You will never accumulate debt like you would through that college scam by taking some home based marketing courses from gurus like Mike Dillard or Frank Kern etc.

What I have realized now, is that even without that college piece of paper, and only going through a handful of these proven marketing and business tactics courses, I am earning more money then all of my friends who have Associates, Bachelors, and even Masters Degrees.

I don’t say that brag, I say that to show you there is an alternative way… I mean seriously what rule book states that you MUST go to college to become successful? Didn’t Bill Gates and Zuckerburg drop out? I think they made out okay…

I can’t WAIT to hear your success story!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

let me in now

By taking advantage of the affiliate marketing programs that are currently available to you on this very page, you can make money and improve your marketing skills. Remember, you can always expand into other areas and venture out totally on your own later. Right now, get marketing and get clicking.
