2008 - Happy New Year!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. As 2007 comes to a close, it's time to reflect on the good things that happened. What goals were met? What goals were not met and why?

Make a plan for 2008. Write down goals and attach your "why" to each of them. This helps me stay focused with a more defined path.

I'm not much on resolutions, but I write down goals for the following areas - family, business, fitness, financial, and spiritual. I look forward to 2008 with a great deal of excitement and know that the best is yet to come!

Network Marketing is an amazing opportunity when done right. As a part of this industry, self development and growth is important. I recently joined the Renegade Network Marketer to do just that. For the next year, I will be heavily involved in growing, learning and developing myself and my business.

I will share the progress along the way.

Happy New Year!

Ask Powerful Questions and LISTEN

Ask powerful questions and LISTEN!

As a network marketing veteran, I always apply the God gave us two ears and one mouth rule – ask questions and then listen. Listen to the answers.

It doesn’t matter if you are working with a potential customer, speaking with a prospect or working with a member of your team, powerful questions is a habit you want to engage in habitually.

The more you know about people, the more effective you will be in bringing value to them. Ask questions so you can get to know that person, really know them. Engaging in conversation and showing someone you care begins the process of relationship building through network marketing.

Each time you engage conversation with someone, be sure you know what it is you want to discover. Set a goal with each encounter. When you leave, know that you gave it your best and brought value to the situation.

When bring value to someone, it’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. Build your network marketing business with honesty and integrity and without the hype, and you will stand above other network marketers.

People will come to you, see the value of watching and learning from you and duplicating your efforts. Asking questions and more importantly listening to the answers will lead you in the right direction.

The bottom line is if you ask the powerful questions and listen to the answers, you will turn those prospects into customers, business partners and team members!
