(typo in the pic … nobody’s perfect)
OMG. I can’t believe this!!!
Well actually I CAN, but OMG OMG OMG!!!
This is the first time EVER in all my time marketing online that
I’ve placed this high in a competition!!
I thought it was amazing when I was 300 and something on the
leader board the first contest.
It was even MORE amazing when I was 200 and something for
the second competition, but this….
This just takes the cake!
When I think about my beginning in the MLM industry:
Too shy to talk to anyone but family and friends,
Afraid of rejection
And then venturing online… still being afraid of so many things
Barely making any money to call myself a business owner…
I remember years when i made so little I didn’t even qualify
For a tax return (how crazy is that?)
And to see this is COMPLETELY amazing!!
Being #141 out of 70,000 affiliates inside of Empower Network is something to celebrate.
Here’s why and trust me if you join me in business right now you’ll benefit from it.
Or if you are already apart of my team, the Digital Wealth Masters, if you roll with me and never quit the amount your bank account WILL increase dramatically!
The contest began November 6, 2012 and from that day until to January 14, 2013 when it ended, I bought in only 13 people at the basic level. That means 13 people bought the basic blogging system for $25.
Out of those new members:
- 5 Upgraded to the Inner Circle
- 4 Ugraded to the Costa Rica Mastermind
- 1 Upgraded to the 15k Formula
- 6 Purcahsed Tickets to attend our event in Austin, TX this weekend
Why am I telling you this?
I’m saying to to show that it doesn’t take a massive amount of people to place in the Top 200 or even Top 150 on the leaderboard. I’m saying this because with the right leadership and the right amount of committed people you can succeed
Our mantra, core commitment here with Empower Network is focus on getting 2 basic blogging sales per day. And clearly I didn’t do that right?
So just imagine where I, or you would be if we DID sell 2 $25 blogging systems per day…
Our goal during the contest was simple:
- 2 sales per day
- sell an event ticket to Austin which is only 2 days away.
That’s what Dave Wood and Dave Sharpe said for us to do and, that’s what I focused on.
I went to work.
I took action
Everything was going right.
I blasted on to the leaderboard at #12… higher than some of the top earners
The leads were coming in, the sales were flowing and my team was upgrading.
And then it happened.
The day before Thanksgiving I got wind that someone who was dear to me was brutally murdered.
And the Sunday after Thanksgiving my Uncle who had been suffering from an illness passed away.
In one weekend I was faced with a decision.
Let grief consume me or keep pushing.
It was hard.
I didn’t feel like working.
I cried … A LOT
I had two funerals to go to; one on Friday and one the following Monday similar to the deaths that took place.
I can’t lie. I barely blogged. Most days during the month of December i scrolled up and down Facebook. And yet…
The sales keep coming in.
The commission notifications … $25, $100, $500, $1000 …
“Congratulations, you just signed a new member”
How could that be?
The system began to work itself … just like they said it would.
I found a marketing strategy I was good at, and I set certain things in place. My numbers slipped a little, but the system kept working.
And then I made a decision.
I looked at my kids and I realized (as if i didn’t already know), I could continue to grieve over something I couldn’t control and watch my hard work slip away
I could get it together and push through this, because I had 3 little ones depending on me.
It was tough, but I started with one day. And then the next. And slowly,I got back into my groove.
I continued to plug away.
I started calculating and developing strategies to keep me in position.
And although I didn’t get points everyday, I did make it.
The goals was to get a red lanyard which meant I needed to place in the top 200.
So what’s the big deal about a red lanyard?
Basically with a red lanyard you get invited to a private meeting with Dave Wood, Dave Sharpe and the top 6 and 7 figure earners during the Austin event.
THIS IS A HUGE FREAKIN DEAL!!!!
This basically puts me in the circle of those that are getting massive results.
I get to learn from them, build relationships with them, network with them, and really get to know them on a deeper level.
I’ve heard it said before that if you take the income of your 5 closest friends and divide it up the average will be close to what you make as well.
And since my income needs to go up, this new network of friends and business partners fits right into my life’s purpose.
It’s all starting simply by placing in the Top 200 and getting a Red Lanyard.
Someone once told me, if you want to get recognized in this industry – win a contest
And in so many ways …. I just did.
Now let me be clear.
NONE of this would have been possible had it not been for important 3 things.
1. God allowing this to be possible – getting serious about my prayer life. I made a commitment to God and although I’m not perfect, He honored my efforts and blessed me in spite of my faults.
2. My team believing in me enough to join the Digital Wealth Masters , trusting my leadership, and believing in THEMSELVES enough to commit to upgrading and showing up at the events.
3. And me focusing in on what needed to be done. No shiny ball syndrome. No getting distracted. Just 100% commitment.
And that’s the real deal.
If I told you how simple my strategy was you probably wouldn’t believe me.
Seriously. It’s the most ridiculous thing EVER!!
…..but IT WORKED.
Almost everyday, Monday – Friday I would:
1. Hop on Facebook
2. Post some Off the wall stuff
3. Chat with a few people
4. Broadcast my results
5. Email my List the swipes I got from other Empower Network leaders
6. Occasionally write an original blog (remember I was grieving)
That was it.
Some days I fell off. December was a complete wrap.
But the point is I did work and focused on my intention of being in the Top 200.
I had a goal to reach #30, actually I saw it in a dream … and I know it will happen. My intention is set.
I’m proud of my team members who have committed to coming to Austin: Valentino Crawford, Sandra Howard, Michelle Cornish and her husband, Tony Smith, and Valerie Mason.
An honorary mention goes to Eraina Tinnin who bought a ticket, but due unresolvable circumstances cannot be there 9she was in San Diego and WILL be at the next one)
They get recognized because they showed commitment in purchasing their tickets.
And I can’t forget about my team members who maybe can’t make this one, but are ALREADY making plans for the next event!
So HOW does this impact you? How can THIS make you more money?
Here’s the deal.
There’s a thing called the law of momentum AND the law of association.
What I have shown you above is momentum
Since our last event in San Diego (September 2012) through now, my total income earned and monthly residuals has MORE than doubled.
That’s not just because of my sponsor and her incredible leadership, but also because I’m getting more sales through recognition and making myself more visible.
What does that mean?
That means if you follow what I teach, and never quit, you will start getting results
I’m all about promoting members on my team!
I WANT IT TOO!!!
Heck on a training in the 15K Formula (another product from Empower Network), Tracey Walker, my sponsor name dropped me through the entire thing for the work and leadership I provided in helping her to build her team!
I didn’t ask her to do that. And in the beginning I never sought recognition. She saw the vision the Daves had. I saw the vision she had and i gave of myself, my knowledge and skills wherever she needed me. I just wanted to help … to be apart of something great.
And now everyone that buys the 15k Formula and listens to her training she did will KNOW WHO ME and as a result KNOW MY TEAM!
Period. The end.
And all this because I got serious, put my head down, went to work, and got results.
Leaders here in EN WANT to promote those that are getting results. That’s the type of culture that we have.
So my question to you is are you going to keep wondering if this thing is for you?
Are you going to trust me enough to lead you the right way and get started with me now?
Now if you are already on my team, then just continue to follow the 8 Core Commitments and NEVER GIVE UP.
Follow the instructions I send in our private group and eventually you will get the results you came here for.
I’m living proof.
And I’ve barely scratched the surface.
