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.”
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:
- Creating a healthy snack brochure.
- Designing the copy for the web page.
- Hiring someone to create the web pages.
- Writing an autoresponder series
- Testing a Google Adword keyword group.
- Creating an order page.
- Spamming Facebook groups.
- 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 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.”
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! 😉
