Networking In An Effective Way

networking in an effective way is smartIt has been said that networking with strangers can be seen as wasting your time. Effective networking is all about building relationships so start slowly and work up. Why? A friend of mine was complaining, “I’m doing 2-3 networking events a week – and I’m worn out.” I then asked why they felt doing so much networking was important and they replied, “One of my marketing goals is to do at least 1 networking event a week.” I then told them that their goal was just 1 each week, so why do more than that? The point is to build business relationships and gain trust. This means less is better, rather than Continue reading

Life Is About Choices And The Decisions We Make

Decisions we make are essentialLife is a journey. A journey based on decisions we make and choices based around those decisions. The journey consists of long and short roads; smooth and rocky roads; crooked and straight paths.

Six Steps To Successful Selling – Step 1

Step 1 of the key to successful salesWhen we think of successful selling, many think of making a sale of an item or service “at all costs”, but the word “sell” originates from a Norwegian word that actually means to “SERVE”. With this being the case, it’s more about service than selling. There are six main steps to selling successfully and each has its place and the sequence should really be adhered to so as to complete the process.

Is It Wise To Convince And Sell?

is it best to convince and sellNone of us like selling, but so many of us have to. The question that is on my mind for this post is one that is relevant for most circumstances. Is it really wise to “convince and sell” or is it better to just sell to people who truly WANT what you have to offer rather than trying to convince them they want it?

This “convincing” is fed by desperation. How often do you see or hear “buy my stuff” or “join this fantastic money maker” or “you NEED this”? So many are DESPERATE for a sale. Too many people have the message you NEED this or that shiny object and this is where to get it. Why is this? Because they have not Continue reading

The thing is you doubt that you can think positive in any way. Because of this doubt, it’s inevitable that you think negatively, and this in turn shows up as more negativity and nothing seems to get better. Continue reading

Do You Suffer From “What If”?

what if you will succeedIsn’t it amazing how many people have the negative feelings based on “what if”?

What most fail to think of is there are two sides to everything; the negative AND the POSITIVE!!

So when you approach people with your business and begin to talk to them, they may agree to come along to a presentation and then the doubts start don’t they? What if I don’t get the people interested or what if I buy into this and I FAIL? Negativity, negativity and even more of the same…

Ask yourself this instead: What if I make a decision to do this with all the conviction I need and believe that with some work, I can achieve the income and life of my dreams? Continue reading

How To Overcome Rejection.

It doesn’t really matter what business you’re in, whether it’s sales or a business such as network marketing where you need to recruit people, many of us have to face up to and deal with how to overcome rejection. Rejection, or what appears to be rejection, is something we have to cope with and getting past the “no” is the difficult part for many people. Why? Because they believe it’s somehow THEM that are the problem, when it’s the person they speak to just saying the product, service or opportunity is not for them at the time of asking.
