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. The stock market’s strong rally of the past few days has allowed it to retrace nearly half of its losses since the start of the year.  That could mark the end of the recent drop – or it could be simply a bear market rally before the longer-term downtrend picks up. Some clues point to further downside.  While the Fed didn’t raise interest rates more than expected last week, they continued to warn on inflation, which still runs hot.  And a number of central bankers have warned that the Fed isn’t ready to pivot yet on its current

Good morning. Last week saw a strong rally for the market, with the best-performing week for stocks since 2020.  That’s in spite of data indicating the economy continues to contract.  As we get into August, however, that rally should cool. On a technical basis, the market has now had a strong rally.  But it also fits the pattern of a bear market rally.  And until the Fed stops raising interest rates, we likely won’t see a sustained rally higher – aka, the so-called “pivot” that will signal a true change in the market’s long-term trajectory. All told, that points to

And if there is, I have not found it. For if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard.” –CJ Walker What Worked, What Didn’t, What’s Next?

Today! July 30, 2021 Good morning. The first half of the year saw endless stories about the impact of rising lumber prices.  From adding thousands to the cost of a new home, as well as showcasing supply chain issues in the timber industry, prices have heavily pulled back from their peak but are well above their levels a year ago. Well, there’s a new commodity making big moves higher: Coffee.  A combination of robust demand, and the potential supply shock from frost in Brazil have caused coffee prices to jump over 30 percent in the past two months.  While this

Good morning. Three months ago, when the first-quarter 2022 GDP numbers showed an unexpected drop, we went ahead and called it a recession.  That’s now official (at least by the government’s definition), now that there’s been a second quarterly decline in a row. While some are saying it’s not really a recession… or only a technical recession… things certainly don’t look bad with a -0.9 percent drop.  It’s not as steep as in the first quarter, after all.  But nothing moves in a straight line. Interest rates are now at their highest levels since 2019, when the Fed stopped raising

07-JULY 28-2022

Good morning. After being told that inflation was transitory for a year, we’re now being told that negative GDP growth for two quarters in a row isn’t a recession.  In the meantime, the Fed continues to raise interest rates aggressively, with another rate hike yesterday. This fast pace of rate increases only makes it more likely that we’ll avoid what the Fed calls a “soft landing” – where we somehow avoid a recession, or just have a mild one, while inflation dissipates from 40-year highs. It’s clear that we still have some turbulence in store for the markets, and that

07-JULY 27-2022

Good morning. While the stock market is likely to rally as soon as the Federal Reserve announces they are done raising interest rates, that still leaves the possibility for a further decline in the months ahead until that happens. One big reason for such a decline may be the fact that earnings are clearly dropping.  Walmart (WMT) warned on its full-year sales numbers, and was hit hard by he market on Tuesday.  That may just be the start for corporate America, and many Wall Street analysts have yet to cut their earnings forecasts.  That could make for a second half
