Don’t get mad… get money!

Its Raining Money

I LOVE this mantra, which I stole from bossbabe.me.

If you’re not where you want to be in your business, learn the skills you need to level up, and get to work!

Success is a decision… and I’ve seen it said by many success experts that it breaks down to something like 10% skillset and 90% mindset, which seems crazy, but it’s really all in your head. If you decide that you’re going to be successful, no matter what, you’re not going to let anything or anyone stop you. I work in network marketing, and the ‘income producing activities’ are not in themselves difficult, but it can be really hard to actually make myself do them. Every day. This is where a strong mindset, a huge WHY, and mental toughness comes in.

Money doesn’t make you happy, but it sure relieves a TON of stress and worry, so think of ways you can get in front of more people, educate your customers, train your builders, and attract more energy (money) to yourself.

You may want to check out the book Happy Money (Increase the Flow of Money with a Simple 2-Step Formula)… interesting way to look at making and attracting money into your life and business.

Tiffany Peterson says: “Serve more to Sell more.” So true! So how can you do more of what you do for more people?

Consider: People will do business and refer business to people they know, like and trust.

So the question is: Do you make it easy for people to know, like and trust you?

Please post what you do, or your ideas, that make it easy for business to come your way.

 


My Top 10 Daily Essential Oils, I mean 11

Here’s my daily top 10 oil picks, how I use them, and how they can help you feel amazing and get things done:

IMG_2979

Frankincense: This is my number 1 go to oil for just about everything, as it’s great for brain balance, focus, sad feelings, inflammation, immune system and cellular health, wound repair, letting go of negative vibrations, and helps you see the ‘truth’ in life. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of oils. I use 2 drops under my tongue every morning. If you can only have 1 oil, this is it.

InTune (Focus blend): Helps keep you focused on the task at hand, and helps with increased concentration and attention to detail, mental clarity, reduces stress and alleviates nervous and anxious feelings. This blend includes Frankincense, Lime, Patchouli, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang.

Peppermint: Gives an instant energy lift, is cooling, helps relieve occasional headaches and pain, provides digestive relief (1 drop is equal to 28 cups of Peppermint tea), creates emotional distance during heated discussions, and helps with bad breath. Also for those experiencing ‘hot flashes’, mix 8-10 drops of Peppermint and filtered water in a small 4 ounce glass spray bottle for an instant cooling spray. Apply to the back of your neck or wherever you need to cool down. Also great for sunburn relief.

DigestZen: As the name implies, it’s used for digestive relief, gas, bloating, nausea, motion sickness during travel, sinus issues, emotional indigestion, and helps when you’ve ‘taken on too much’. This is a blend of Anise, Caraway, Coriander, Fennel, Ginger, Peppermint and Tarragon oils. Use a drop under your tongue, in a shot of water, or rub it right where you need it on your stomach or throat.

Balance (Grounding blend): Helps you feel balanced, calm, centered and grounded, balances energy, dispels anger and rage, stress and anxiety relief. I use this every day, a drop on the bottoms of my feet, helps me stay grounded and focused. This blend includes Blue Chamomile, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Ho Wood and Spruce. Very woodsy smelling.

Citrus Bliss (Invigorating blend): Do you work in an office full of grumpy, whiny people? Or live in a house with grumpy, whiny kids (or adults)? Diffuse this blend and change the mood of your co-workers, family and friends without them knowing! This blend fosters creativity, relieves stress, is uplifting and smells amazing! This is a blend of seven different citrus oils and vanilla: Bergamot, Clementine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Tangerine and Wild Orange.

Serenity (Calming blend): Can’t we all just get along? This blend is great for promoting serene feelings of acceptance, helping reduce criticism, blame and judgement, reduces anxious feelings and resentment towards others. Finally! And Serenity will help you fall asleep at night, and it’s great to calm the overactive or cranky kids in your life, the little or big ones. Ha! 1-2 drops on the bottoms of their feet, back of the neck, on temples, and diffuse it. This blend includes Lavender, Sweet Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang and vanilla.

Passion (Inspiring blend): Do you feel like you’ve lost your mojo? This blend can help you get it back, and find your inner passion for life, help you love your work, get inspired, clear mental fog, discover clarity of purpose, and encourages openness to new experiences. One of my faves! In this one there is Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Sandalwood and Jasmine. Also helps in the bedroom… just saying.

Motivate (Encouraging blend): Are you mentally exhausted and feel like you’re stuck? This is the one for you! This blend helps fight mental fatigue and exhaustion, gives encouragement and confidence, and helps you get things done. This is a blend of Basil, Clementine, Coriander, Melissa, Peppermint and Rosemary. Also one of my faves, and I put a drop or 2 behind my ears, and the energy boost is amazing… my house gets clean and my work gets done.

OnGuard (Protective blend): Great for boosting your immune system, has anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, kills germs, kills airborne pathogens when diffused, reduces symptoms and duration of seasonal bugs, keeps you and your staff healthier with less days out of the office. This is a blend of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Wild Orange oils, warm, spicy and very powerful.

BONUS: ClaryCalm (Monthly Blend for Women): OK, ladies, this is the jam for balancing your hormones, and I don’t care how old you are, or how many parts you have left, if you know what I mean. I use this roll-on blend morning and night, lower abdomen, and sometimes around my ankles, to help me stay sane and not lose my mind. It also helps balance mood swings, PMS-type crankiness and cramps, I think you get the picture.

When using essential oils, quality matters. Essential oils are powerful aromatic compounds that act like messengers throughout your body.

dōTERRA Essential Oils can safely be used aromatically by being diffused or inhaled directly from the bottle, topically (some must be diluted with a carrier oil), and most can be used internally, as these pure, therapeutic grade essential oils are basically considered to be food (read the label).

When using oils, a drop is a ‘dose’, and less is more, so start with a very small amount. Listen to your body, and I encourage everyone to do their own research.

One more super cool thing about these oils: no negative side effects!

There are many other essential oils that are helpful for all different physical and emotional issues, and we’ve just scratched the surface here. But these 11 oils are a great start for everyday oil users who are looking for a more natural way to enhance their everyday work and life experience.


12 Steps to Network Marketing Success

Success concept.

I’ve been building an MLM business and team for almost 3.5 years, and here is a list of 12 things that have helped me be successful in an MLM. For the record, I’m with dōTERRA.

  1. Find an MLM company whose products you LOVE, use and recommend, even if there was no business opportunity attached.
  2. Become a ‘Product of the Product’, which means you’re using the products and can share and explain them to anyone who asks.
  3. Find an MLM that has consumable products, where people need to order often, like monthly, as this is how you build long-term residual income.
  4. Research the integrity of the company, and only go with a company that has a good reputation, has sustainable practices, and gives back to the community.
  5. Understand the compensation plan. Make sure you understand the types of plans out there: Party plan, Unilevel, etc… dōTERRA is a Unilevel plan with bonuses paid weekly and monthly, depending on your activity, and how much effort you put into it. dōTERRA’s Unilevel plan pays a higher percentage as you build down, and as you help your downline be successful.
  6. Ongoing personal development is huge, so you need to be willing to read, attend webinars and seminars to constantly improve and uplevel your skills as a salesperson and ultimately as a leader.
  7. Attend the annual convention and other corporate events with your people. No excuses, make sure you’re there.
  8. This is a numbers game, so figure out a way to always be meeting new people, whether it’s through events, classes you teach, 1:1s, online groups, Facebook, a blog, just do whatever works for you. And be consistent. Have ‘Income Producing Activities’ on your calendar every day and do them!
  9. The key to success is deciding that you’re going to be successful, no matter what. It’s all in your mindset, and what you focus on. If you believe you will be successful, do the work and surround yourself with positive, self-motivated people, you will be successful. It takes time, but it’s totally worth it.
  10. Don’t compare yourself to anyone except who you were yesterday. Enjoy the journey and give yourself permission to succeed on your timetable. We all have family and other obligations, and maybe you are still working a full-time job, but these are not excuses. If you really want it, you will find a way to carve out the time you need to build your business.
  11. Don’t let the negative social stigma of being part of an MLM stop you from reaching your goals and dreams. You will need to endure some negative criticism from well-meaning but ignorant people, so toughen up. Legitimate MLMs are a fantastic way to make as much money as you want. Do not listen to anyone who is not paying your bills, as they don’t get a say in how you choose to earn money and support your family.
  12. Never give up! That’s really the only way you can fail in an MLM is to quit. Reject mediocrity and go for it!

I consider myself successful, as I’ve replaced my income from my prior work in the real estate industry, and I’m just getting started. Being successful in this business requires mental and emotional toughness, and willingness to learn and grow.

Would I want to go back to what I was doing before? Never! Do I have days that are tough when I want to quit? Of course. This is like any other job, except I get to decide when and where I work, how much I work, and how much I want to get paid, so there’s no going back for me. I’m hooked!

In the words of Eric Worre, we really do have a better way!

My Throat Hurts! What you got for me?

sore-throat
As a busy entrepreneur, you can’t afford to be under the weather.
It’s that time of year, and if you’re like me, you want a natural way to soothe your achy throat, something without chemicals and side effects. I recently found out that a popular throat spray works by basically killing off the cells that make the feelings of soreness. Really? That does not sound like a reasonable or safe way to feel better.
Hold on, there’s a better way, and I think you’re gonna love this recipe!
PLEASE: Only use dōTERRA Essential Oils please! They are safe for internal use.
SOOTHING THROAT SPRAY:
Take an empty 15ml glass bottle and add the following:
8 drops OnGuard
8 drops Lemon
4 drops Peppermint
4 drops of Thyme
1 drop of Myrrh
2 drops of Clove
1 drop of Sandalwood
1 drop of Cinnamon
1 drop of Frankincense
2 drops of Liquid Stevia (optional)
Fill the rest of the bottle with filtered or distilled water. Shake well… spray as needed.
Ahhh… doesn’t that feel better?
