Network marketing and baby boomers

If you were born between 1946 and 1964 you are from the baby boomer generation, I was born in 1954 so I am one also.

I am also going to frame you with the following attributes if you are like me.

· You want to stay active and healthy in a long retirement
· You enjoy meeting lots of people
· You like helping others
· You don’t like working for other people, (I would love to work for myself)
· You like to give to charities of your choice
· You would like to complete your bucket list before you depart this world
· You are concerned that your pension is not going to facilitate for the lifestyle you deserve
· You want that sports car you always dreamed of
· You are open-minded and passionate

All of the above is possible if you are prepared to reframe your retirement lifestyle.

I know so many people that have had very unhappy retirements because they had not prepared themselves for it, not enough savings so they lived out an unfulfilled meagre existence with no hobbies, watching telly, doing the boring stuff and dieing early because of unhealthy lifestyles.

Us baby boomers are not like that, we do stuff and boy we are going to have a good time, because we deserve it.

The grim reality is that more and more people are coming to terms with the fact that they probably aren’t going to be able to save enough money to just sit around and slowly deplete their nest egg (if you have one) from age 65 to 100.

There is also a major problem out there and that is the increasing number of boomers who are disenchanted with their current careers. They’re worn-out from years of the corporate grind (I have the tee shirt on that one) and don’t feel the connection between their job and the people it impacts outside their office walls or company grounds. Boomers are growing increasingly tired of feeling guilty or bad about their past savings habits and are interested in moving towards possible solutions.

They’re shifting their focus from accumulating a giant nest egg to a desire to be part of something bigger and better… to have a positive effect on others… and working in retirement.

Facets of life that can be fulfilled through having a successful network marketing career. Network marketing is an important consideration for anyone entering retirement not only providing the extra money in your pocket, but also the non-financial aspects of retirement such as replacing a work identity, staying relevant and connected, as well as keeping mentally and physically fit.

Because of how network marketing can change people’s dynamic as they contemplate their retirement reality I believe that the entire industry is poised for explosive growth and can be one of the most significant solutions to people’s current retirement savings crisis.

I believe the concept of starting a business for retirement income will become one of the most significant trends impacting retirement in the 21st century.

If you want to know more about this and if you are passionate and open-minded then I would like to introduce you to a part-time network marketing opportunity in the wellness industry, the fastest growing sector in the world, which will allow you to live the lifestyle as I have alluded to at the top of this article.

You are willing to be coached and mentored

In a previous article I discussed the three attributes you need to become a network marketing professional.

1. You have a passion and burning desire
2. You are willing to be coached and mentored and engage with personal development
3. You commit to work this business consistently every week

I have spoken about passion and today we come onto the second attribute and that is you are willing to be coached and mentored and engage with personal development.

So you were a top salesperson in your previous company, this new network marketing thing looks easy, you will just implement the strategy that has given you so much success and you will “smash it” by Christmas. Does that sound familiar?

I can tell you now that strategy will not work. In this business we want you to have an open-mind and work with and listen to your upline. To take on board the skills you need to do this business properly. What may work for you because you were skilled at it will not be transferable to your new team members, ie it is not duplicatable.

Every network marketing company will have a system that works for them, it will involve building lists of potential prospects, inviting people to check out a third part tool, engage with a 3-way call or attend an opportunity meeting. These are all simple steps that anyone can do. Network marketing is simple but it is not easy. Many people over complicate this business and they find that when they follow the simple system that is when they get their best results.

The other key thing here is you need to engage with personal development. What do I mean by this? You have heard me say before that network marketing is a people business and therefore you need to develop the personal skills that will allow you to support and manage your team.

Everybody who comes into network marketing will have different skillsets, maybe one was a teacher and the next person was a plumber. You would agree that these two people will have different work skills and probably different interpersonal skills.

Personal development comes in different forms and I would ask you to engage with all of them. Firstly there are recommended books to read, like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey are three must-reads.

Secondly there will be structured personal development courses you can attend, classroom training where you get stuck into the practical stuff and roll playing different scenarios, fantastic for getting you out of your comfort zone.

And thirdly there is going to be 1-2-1 mentorship with your upline who has probably been in the business for a while and will be able to help and guide you on you journey of discovery.

Our aim is to get everyone up to a level of competence by engaging with personal development. This will facilitate them having the confidence to become potentially very successful, (when they engage with the third attribute, next article).

As Jim Rohn perfectly puts it:

“Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become”

And that will be through personal development

Have a great day

A Perfect Storm of events is causing our health to compromised

Your health your life your choice

You would think that in 2014 that we should be able to live a lot longer and healthier as a consequence of scientific breakthroughs that have happened allowing us to understand how our bodies work from a biological and biochemical point of view.

If we know that (and we do) then you would have thought it would be easy to inform people what is good for you and what is bad for you. And if it has been scientifically proven and demonstrated that it is bad for you to then remove it from the food chain. If only it were that simple.

So in an age of scientific enlightenment why do we have the following? (I have mentioned some of these before but it is a lot worse than you think).

1. The NHS cost over £100 billion to run every year (which is a lot of money in anybodies book) and is in crisis. GPs in my area are retiring early because they have had enough; the bureaucracy is suffocating them. Lots of practices are now short of doctors, (just one example).

2. Because of advanced medical procedures people are being kept alive longer with a poor quality of life, which is having a major impact on NHS costs. The onus being sickness treatment and not prevention and wellness, which is much more cost effective (cheaper).

3. Knowing what we do Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) still kills 48% of people.

4. 95% of all Americans will be overweight or obese by 2035 and by 2050 one third of all Americans will be diabetic, (it is always good to throw in a US statistic, knowing that we in the UK will not be far behind if we keep following what they do, and we are).

5. In the UK there was a marked increase in the proportion of adults that were obese between 1993 and 2012 from 13.2% to 24.4% among men and from 16.4% to 25.1% among women.

6. Diabetes is now classified as a non-infectious pandemic (worldwide), 3.2 million people in the UK with Type-2 diabetes, 5.0 million by 2025. Worldwide there are 285 million people with Type-2 diabetes and that number is expected to reach 438 million by the year 2030, with two-thirds of all diabetes cases occurring in low to middle-income countries. This will cripple healthcare worldwide and especially the NHS.

7. Alzheimer’s – Scientists are gathering evidence that Alzheimer’s is a late stage of Type 2 diabetes. Larger numbers of diabetics causing larger numbers of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

8. Obesity leads to diabetes (and complications), leads to cardiovascular disease and or dementia and Alzheimer’s.

9. CVD, diabetes, obesity costs the NHS almost 25% of the entire annual budget.

10. As a consequence of the above the current generation of children will have a shorter lifespan than their parents. We are doing this to our children!

The obesity epidemic is out of control and is fueling our serious health diseases. It is a terrible indictment when we can say with almost certainty that prehistoric man was far fitter and healthier than we are.

You have to realize when you ask, “why has it gone so badly wrong” that this is a massive subject. Over the coming weeks I will come back to this subject as it really is a perfect storm and I want to use this platform to get the message out there.

In the meantime, what do CVD, diabetes, obesity, dementia and Alzheimer’s all have in common?

Poor Circulation

Synergy Worldwide’s flagship product ProArgi-9 Plus is based on the 1998 Nobel Prize for Medicine and is proven to improve blood circulation and bring down blood pressure.

Synergy Worldwide is a wellness company and they have a strapline “Wellness is a lifestyle”

ProArgi-9 Plus massively benefits people with the circulatory issues as we have described.

Do you think we have an opportunity here?

We are on a mission to save 1 million lives; do you want to help us do that?

As I have said in previous articles, if you have the passion and burning desire, if you are prepared to be coached and mentored and you commit to working this business for 8-10 hours a week for 3 to 5 years then you really need to check out this business opportunity and you could also become part of what we are calling:

“The greatest cause driven opportunity on the planet.”

Finding Your Passion

In a previous article I discussed the three attributes you need to become a network marketing professional.

1. You have a passion and burning desire
2. You are willing to be coached and mentored
3. You commit to work this business consistently

In this article I want to talk about finding your passion, and can I start by asking you, how passionate are you about your job? When you get up in the morning do you look forward to going to work or does the thought of it fill you with dread?

If you are not passionate about your job then I would suggest you have not yet found your calling, perhaps you are trading your time for money helping someone else to become wealthy and not you.

Let’s just stop here and define passion – passion is an invisible and irresistible force that drives you to do your best, because you believe what you are doing really matters.

So where do I fit in on this scale?

I am passionate about life and I am also passionate about network marketing, I look forward to every day, I have a plan for what I want to achieve for the day. I know I will be talking to existing team members that I am helping to realise their dreams and I also know I will be talking to others for the first time where network marketing will be able to help them escape their current circumstances.

The great thing about passion is that when you are passionate, you will attract other people. People will be able to read it on your face and see it in the way you conduct yourself. Passion is magnetic, when people see the passion in you they will want to know more, just ask any of my friends or colleagues they will all say I am passionate about what I do and how I live.

My passion for network marketing goes even further, because as I have said before this is a people business, you are part of a network, you share a bond with people. You help them and they help you and you all want the same thing, success, think how rare that is in this cutthroat age?

I also have a great passion for health and wellness and the company I am working with, their ethos and ethics sync with my own and finally I have a total passion for the life changing profound products produced by the company. The testimonials we get from people using our products in many instances are life changing and humbling.

Passion has become a defining part of my life, my love for my “work” and once you have unlocked this for yourself, it will also become your key to success in network marketing and for you to escape the rat race. Finding your passion, I have found mine.

Why should I be looking at network marketing as a part-time business opportunity?

Lets start here by making a statement from Robert Kiyosaki. Robert is probably the number one authority on financial wealth creation in the world with his book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, a major worldwide best seller, (a must read for all budding entrepreneurs).

“Today network marketing is recognised by many experts and accomplished businesspeople as one of the fastest-growing business models in the world”

So you are thinking, hum, from what I have heard it doesn’t work, only a very few make it.

The problem is and I come across this all the time very few people actually know how the business model really works with misconceptions and misinformation being the norm.

The first thing I need to make clear is that network marketing is founded on solid business principles, where fundamentally you have quality products that people will purchase.

The essence of this business and why it is potentially so life changing, is that when you as a distributor for a company and you talk to someone about a product or service and they buy from you, you get the commission (instead of the shop).

And the best bit is that every time they re-purchase the product you also get a commission. This is called residual income – you do the job once you do it well, you get paid every single month.

Word of mouth recommendation is the most powerful form of marketing and you are doing it every day, think about it. You recommend restaurants, films and books all of the time without even thinking about it. In Network marketing you simply get paid for that recommendation.

Let’s also make it clear you do not have to have a garage full of products, the company will ship the product directly to the customer as soon as an order is placed. Now how cool is that?

So if it is that simple why do people fail at it? Again that is simple, poor desire and lack of belief are the main reasons. As I have said in a previous post, the number one attribute you need to do this business is to have a passion and a burning desire to get out of the rat race.

You also have to have a total belief in the company you join and the products they produce. Would you buy the products and get excited about telling other people about them? If not then again you will fail. And the other reason people fail is because they are not cut out for it, network marketing is not for everybody.

So let’s take it as a given you have the necessary desire and belief then you have to find out for yourself how this business really works, you owe it to yourself to do your due-diligence because it just might be the vehicle you are looking for to create an additional income stream.

One final thing I will mention in this post that you will be so happy about is that the entry fee to join a network-marketing company in the UK will be less than £200, because that is what the Direct Selling Association dictates. If you can join an established successful company where you will have a potential to build a worldwide business for less than £200 then you have to check it out.

Top 5 Network Marketing tips

Having worked in this fantastic profession for 9 years let me give you my top 5 network marketing tips.

1. You need to have the following 3 attributes otherwise do not do this business.

· You have a passion and burning desire to extricate yourself from the rat-race, to take personal responsibility for your life
· You are prepared to be coached and mentored and follow the system that your team/company have in place
· You commit to working this business consistently every week. Ideally if you work this profession between 8 – 10 hours a week for 3 – 5 years you cannot fail and you will put down a financial foundation for the rest of your life. Yes you may have less than 8 – 10 hours at your disposal, that is fine, it may just take you a little longer

2. You engage with personal development because it will give you the personal skill sets to be successful, you will also change as a person. The network marketing company you join is the vehicle you are using to get you to where you want in your life. You will hear the phrase “network marketing is a personal development business disguised as a wellness (or any other type of nm) company”, this is very true.

3. Care for your team members, love them more than yourself because network marketing is fundamentally a people business; it is a face-to-face, belly-to-belly business. People buy people. If you have found the right company it will have a compensation plan that rewards you for helping your team members to become successful. The more successful they are the more successful you are. Tell me a better way of doing business.

4. There is no catch to this profession, you just have to work it hard like any other business you join, it is not a get rich quick scheme, in the early days you will not make much money and you will consider giving up. Do not do this, because as you develop as a person you business will go from strength to strength. Remember there is no cap to what you can earn in this profession. I am also using the word profession, because like a doctor or teacher it takes time to gain the skills to become successful. You should set your goal to become a Network Marketing Professional.

5. “The fortune is in the follow up” as Jim Rohn would say. Have a Contact Management System (Excel spreadsheet is fine) for all your contacts and follow them up regularly, bringing them up to date with all the latest happenings, and phoning from time to time. If they say no to you it may be the timing is not quite right, so it is a nfn or “no for now”. When the time is right or they are at 12 o’ clock as they say you will have a very receptive prospect who is eager to sign up.
