The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 4 - Downtime and Recharge

Day - 10ish - something like that!

Friday and part of Saturday were more of a break from network marketing than anything. I had some things to attend to during the early part of Friday and was running on some low batteries, so I took the opportunity to enjoy some family time and watch my 7 year old play his final basketball game of the season. It was bittersweet, and I am super proud of him. He is a huge part of my "WHY" that drives me in my mentoring and business growth.

I took some time to reflect on the past week and a half and realized that I had made some great strides in my branding efforts. I started overcoming a long time fear of video blogging. I didn't have a huge audience, but who does when they first start? I have seen bands that have made some big waves start in dives with only other band members and their girlfriends in the audience in their humble beginnings, so I am not at all worried about my progression.

As far as my business side, I did pick up another customer today, and that is always great. I was able to make someone happy and add another customer to my client list. I love customers, they are what makes business great. I don't go around asking people to join my business opportunity or MLM. Never will. I barely even tell people what I know what business I am working with, other than Mentoring for Free because that is my true passion. Helping others.

I have found that doing tasks, that I used to dread and put off, are therapeutic and very rewarding. Washing my vehicle this morning was one the most fun things I have done in a while. I had my son out helping me. Normally, I run through an auto wash... but not today, I wanted to take the time scrubbing, vacuuming, and wiping to allow my mind to open with new ideas and clear out the unwanted mess. It surely did the trick. I didn't think about anything but new ways to find people to help.

I did open up 2 new campaigns to find those that are struggling and are even on the brink of giving up network marketing and MLM. I want the to know, it's not their fault and I want to truly help them. It all began with a simple paradigm shift that manifested two great ideas that will be very successful. I am testing now to share with others that I am able to mentor on down the road.

It's also a great time in my world... in 2 days, my new grand daughter will be here and we are all awaiting her arrival! Business never sleeps, however I will be taking a short "nap" this coming Monday! =)

I think I will just leave it at that tonight... Have a great day and remember, you are successful... you just may not have been coached properly.

Til Next time,
John Wiser

Think and Grow Rich Lessons - Chapter 9: Persistence | The Journey

Think and Grow Rich Lessons from Chapter 9: PersistenceThis chapter comes at no better than time than today for me, personally. Intensity of Desire"The ease with which lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the intensity of one's desire."
This is as true today as it was when it was written all those years ago by Mr. Hill.
When we find ourselves hitting "speed bumps" in our efforts, they can often appear as enormous mountain ranges that block our view of the final prize. That is why we must write down, and keep our "WHY" in front of us at all times as we walk through the test of persistence that gauges whether or not we can "take it." These times, early in the journey are the times that separate the weak from the successful and when the desire is so strong that we have no choice but to carry on, then we have what it takes and will pass the test.

It's a Marathon, not a Sprint Mr. Hill goes on, later in the chapter, to s…

Network Marketing and MLM Sponsoring vs Recruiting - Part 4 | Why I Chose to Be a Sponsor

Why I chose to be a Network Marketing Sponsor and Mentor
It's been a few days since I have posted on here, and with some good reason. I have been spending some quality time reaching out to my team, working with them and helping them move into their dreams. 

I have also been talking with some brilliant prospects and clients that have shared their stories with me. I heard their pain when they were telling me about how they had been taken advantage of by greedy companies and sponsors, I mean recruiters with huge egos. I have heard stories of having to pay hundreds of dollars to join companies and spend even more for training and materials. That did it... I already knew I was a mentor and sponsor. Just hearing these stories brought out my true passion.

I'm just one person, and my mission is to find and help as many people that I can that have been through the bad side of MLM and Network Marketing. When I first started mentoring and sponsoring, I was a bit focused on myself. Makes sen…

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? | My Personal Experience

Is Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy for real? Before I just go and say, heck yeah! It's for real! Let me tell you how I found the book.

I found myself at a point in my life that I had all but given up on network marketing and mlm. I had been in and out for the better part of 15 years, and the last company I was working with exploded right when I was starting to get it figured out. I was done with it. I was over the lies, the big hype, the constant push to sign up more distributors and just plain done with the whole industry, to be honest.

This brings us to the not-so distant past. I was sitting at my desk at work, just thinking about how I could get away from the corporate life and work for myself. I didn't want another MLM. I didn't want to get into some illegal pyramid scheme or some money game ponzi scheme that would ultimately be shut down by the FTC. 

I was wracking my brain. Then I thought of something, as if the idea just appeared... I needed a mentor. One that ha…
