Now that cooler weather is setting in, here in the Eastern United States, it’s time to start thinking about what usually comes with winter weather… and for many of us it’s a COLD. Sniffling, sneezing, runny noses and all that stuff that makes you feel miserable.
What can you or I do to keep from suffering with such miseries this coming winter? My answer… Take Shaklee’s NutriFeron daily. Last winter I took two caplets of NutriFeron every morning and I managed to go the whole winter with NO colds. Also, NO flu. Does that mean it will be the same for you? I don’t know that but the suggestion that was made to me was… try it and see. I liked the results from LAST winter and today I just ordered more for this coming season of cold weather.
This is the only dietary supplement in the United States created by the discoverer of interferon, world-renowned immunologist Dr. Yasuhiko Kojima, who spent decades screening hundreds of botanicals to identify natural interferon boosters. It provides specialized daily support to help maintain healthy immune function.

I’m reading another book this week and the subject matter is about: Understanding Network Marketing. If you asked 100 different people the question “What IS Network Marketing?” you would likely get close to 100 different answers. Some would tell you it’s probably a home based business. Others might go for specific company names they have heard of and then some might tell you that Network Marketing (NWM) is a scam. Yes, there are many who have tried and failed at NWM and as a result, instead of accepting the fact that THEY failed to do what is necessary to succeed and make money… they blame NWM as a whole. You may have met someone who has that opinion, right? Then there are some who will say that NWM is a Pyramid Scheme… (a common description a few years ago) and I simply tell them to go to Egypt if they want to see a pyramid. You really can’t win them all…
Cutting to the chase, the title of the book I’m reding is “The 45 Second Presentation That Will Change Your Life” by Don Failla. Network Marketing is also called Multi-Level Marketing or MLM for short. So WHAT is it? Marketing simply means moving a product or service from the manufacturer to the customer. Multi-Level refers to how the people doing that moving of product are compensated financially.
That’s a quick ‘what is it’ definition. We could talk for some time about the different ways companies compensate their team members but the bottom line is you get rewarded for moving products. The manufacturer makes product available for sale. You are able to purchase those products at wholesale and sell them at retail for a markup. The difference between those two prices is YOUR profit. You are also paid a bonus on the product volume you move.
Additionally, you are able to SPONSOR people into the business you are in as your team members. You are also paid a bonus on the product volume THEY move. This is where the ‘networking’ really comes into play as you network with others and find people who have similar wants and needs and are able to SEE the “bigger picture” that Network Marketing offers. When you Sponsor someone it becomes YOUR job to train them so that they understand what it really takes to make MLM work for them. If you don’t do that training… they will soon drop out and you’ll be looking for more people to Sponsor. People who don’t learn this often talk about having to get people in their business faster than they get out!
In the book, Don Failla says that you really don’t have anybody sponsored until you’ve taken them three levels deep. What does that mean? Let’s say you Sponsor Joe. Joe knows Sue and he Sponsors Sue. Sue is excited and knows everybody and brings on three or four new team members. About that time, if you have been doing training like you should and teaching your team members to do the same… Joe is really IN because he will be getting a regular check and he has something to lose should he quit.
This is such an interesting book. I have been involved with several different MLM companies and had I known what I am learning from this book… Life would likely be so different today for me and my family.

I read a quote the other day about Leverage and it goes like this:
You’re working too hard.
The definition of Leverage from www.merriam-webster.com is: The action of a lever or the mechanical advantage gained by it; power, effectiveness; the use of credit to enhance one’s speculative capacity…
Leverage, in your life can give you a tremendous advantage over those who do not have it, don’t use it or even know it exists. Many of us have found our niche in Network Marketing and that is somewhere you can truly leverage yourself into an upper income bracket.
So, how do you do that? In my opinion, you can do that by sponsoring at least five people who really want to work with you to build their business too. There’s no benchmark that says how many people you’ll have to go through to find them but finding those five is key. As you get to know them, it’s essential to TEACH them to also SPONSOR at least five people who really want to work with them like they’re working with you. When you’ve done that… you will have 25 people in your team. That’s Step One.
The Second Step is to TEACH those 25 to also SPONSOR at least five people who really want to work with them in business. This will have your team at a level of 125 business builders. Are you beginning to get the idea?
Step Three is to TEACH the 125 business bulders to teach those 125 to also SPONSOR at least five people who really want to work with them in business. This will have your team at a level of 625 business builders.
When you have reached this level in your business you will have (assuming none of these successful people has quit) 780 people in your network. If they each purchase their normal minimum Product Volume (PV) to qualify for their monthly volume checks (typically 100 PV) then your volume would be… 78,000 PV. And then when you add in the customer sales and the occasional purchases of all the other people all 780 of your team signed up that are NOT Business Builders… you’re probably looking at 80K PV per month.
The scenario I just painted for you may seem like a pipe dream to you. Will it work? Not unless you get started. But, when it does work, you are seeing the power of LEVERAGE.
Keep in mind: You alone typically purchase products from your business that qualify you for YOUR bonus check (minimum of 100 PV) but you are paid on approximately 80K PV. That my friend is LEVERAGE.
The story above is an example of what can happen if you apply Leverage to the principles of Network Marketing in your life. There are NO guarantees that the numbers will work out like shown above. Actually, the numbers cah work out to be MUCH greater or… nothing at all. It all depends on YOU and the person that sponsors you. I wish you the best in your ventures.
