Love this guy Tom “Big Al” Schreiter; he always shares great marketing secrets.  I guess they’re not secret anymore…

Tip #1 – Secret #1 exposed.  Tom tells a story about ‘this friend’ who claimed Facebook ruined his business.  His friend explains, “I was so excited about my company.  Every time the company had an announcement, an event, a promotion, or a trip to win, I posted it on my Facebook page.  Later, when I called my friends to prospect them, they all said that they already knew about my business from my Facebook page, and that they weren’t interested.”  secrets

Ouch.

Facebook can be awesome for our business … or it can ruin our business.  Think carefully about what we post and what our long-term strategy will be with our Facebook friends.

Tip #2 – Secret #2 exposed.  Tom was talkin’ to a distributor who sells a healthy snack.  He asked her where she found her best prospects.  She said, “It’s easy.  At work.  I simply follow people when they go to the vending machine.  Then I stand next to them, eat my healthy snack, and they always ask me how they can get some healthy snacks, too,”

She is selling lots of healthy snacks and making a great part-time income at work.

Meanwhile, another distributor is doing this:

    1. Creating a healthy snack brochure.
    2. Designing the copy for the web page.
    3. Hiring someone to create the web pages.
    4. Writing an autoresponder series
    5. Testing a Google Adword keyword group.
    6. Creating an order page.
    7. Spamming Facebook   groups.
    8. Etc., etc., etc.

Sometimes we forget that network marketing is a people-to-people business.  🙂

The Secret to Attracting What You Want

If the Law of Attraction is so simple, then why do so many people struggle when it comes to attracting what they truly want?  I want to tell you a story first!

Well, there’s an old story about a man who heard about a stream where there’s supposed to be great fishing.  So one day, he goes to the stream, tosses in his line and waits.

While he’s waiting, he looks down the bank and sees an old man pulling out one fish after another.  The younger man watches as the older one measures each fish with a broken ruler.  If the fish is bigger than the broken ruler, the older man tosses it back into the stream.  But if the fish is smaller than the ruler, he puts the fish in his bucket.

The Fly FishermanThe younger man thinks, “I wonder why he’s throwing the big fish back.  Do they get bony if they get big or is there some sort of license required that I don’t know about that says we’re only allowed to keep fish that are under a certain size?”

After watching for awhile, the younger man finally interrupts the older one and says, “Excuse me, but I’ve been watching you pull in all those fish. You’re pulling in so many, but why do you throw the big ones back and keep the little ones?”

And the old man says, “Buddy, you see that broken ruler on the edge of the riverbank?”  And the younger man says, “Yes.”  And the older man says, “That broken ruler is broken at exactly the size of the frying pan I use.”

You’d probably laugh at a fisherman who wouldn’t realize he could eat bigger fish, even with a small frying pan.  However, this is the perfect analogy for what most people do in their lives.

The stream of life tosses you a big fish in the form of an idea or a possibility.  You measure it by the size of the frying pan you have, which is your known world, or what you’ve already accomplished.  You say,

      • “Well, I don’t have the money to do that.
      • “I don’t have the experience.
      • “I’m not old enough or young enough.”

What Do You See?Essentially, you toss the idea or possibility back to the stream of life and say, “Give me a fish that fits in the frying pan I’ve got, or the life I know.”

These limitations that you place on yourself are called paradigms.  A paradigm is a collection of thought patterns that produce habits, that produce results… that may or may not be in harmony with what you would really love.  If you want to know what your paradigms are producing in your life, all you have to do is look at your current results — because your results are a perfect mirror for the paradigms that you think from and live by.

If you have a dream for your life but that dream is not happening for you, the great news is that you can change your paradigms to better service and manifest your dreams. This is called a paradigm shift, and all it requires is shifting your perspective.  By becoming aware of your paradigms, and ensuring you have expansive and empowering ones in place, you’ll be truly astounded by how quickly you’re able to shift your thoughts and create extraordinary results in your life that you’re absolutely in love with!  😉

Good morning. Retail sales came in with a blowout number, sending stocks to all-time highs and reversing a pre-market drop.  The reason is thanks to the last round of stimulus payments.  While earlier rounds made their way into the stock market, Bitcoin, or paying down a credit card, it’s clear from the retail numbers that many are spending. Governments and central banks are also likely noticing the impact as well.  If inflation numbers don’t materially rise and stay higher, the lesson may be learned that money can be created seemingly infinitely, as long as it’s designed to be spent.  Like

Good morning. Typically, April 15th is the day taxes from the prior year are due. 2021, like 2020, has seen a delay in payment.  Add in extensions, and you can float your payment to Uncle Sam for a year well into the autumn of the next. Tax talk hasn’t been too big in the past year.  For those on the upward part of the K-shaped recovery, it’s been withheld from their jobs as it’s been made.  For those on the lower end, there’s been less made to tax, or even the lower tax rates on unemployment benefits.  At some point,

Good morning. Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history. With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares

Good morning. The stock market is forward-looking.  And it’s been looking forward to this earnings season.  It’s a chance for companies to report solid numbers for the first quarter of 2021.  Earnings are expected to not only be good compared to the 4th quarter, but will also provide a strong view relative to the first quarter of 2020, when stocks had to first start pricing in the pandemic. But the real question is, what happens after earnings?  With some solid numbers likely, and with many companies still avoiding any future guidance, the next few weeks may lead to a big

Good morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics was down early on Friday, as traders looked to see the latest inflation numbers.  With a consumer price index level up 1.0 percent month over month, or twice what was expected, inflation numbers are certainly looking up. Over time, high inflation makes it difficult for companies to provide accurate estimates of costs.  Projects are delayed, and the economy and the stock market contract.  While some of that fear has been bubbling up, for the time being, a quarter or two of extra inflation may not cause a big market selloff.  Traders can potentially

How to set boundaries … and say NO You know, when we were younger, we were wisely taught by our parents, teachers, and law enforcement officials to say NO.  Somewhere along the lines, however, we lost our way.  We started feeling bad about saying no, and we began saying yes…to everything.  The result?  We stretch ourselves thin by taking on anything and everything that comes our way – often reluctantly, begrudgingly, and resentfully.  This happens in our personal and professional lives, and it not only creates overwhelming (yet unnecessary) stress, it also puts tremendous strain on our relationships. In our
