SOC LIFESTYLE AND INCOME
I don’t accept paid consulting assignments, however because of Beach Money I get asked all the time to consult to other companies. Here is an example of a recent event where I recently spoke.
NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT COMPANY (Leadership event at Estate Retreat in Scottsdale)
ENERGY DRINK COMPANY (Company Convention)
Here’s what they all want to know:
- How can I get it to go faster?
- How can I keep people from quitting?
- Not enough people are making money, how do we get more people to make money?
- It will feel like molasses until someone comes into your group that wants it as much (if not more) than you do, that is willing to go to work and put massive action behind his/her dreams (everyone experiences this).
- You can’t keep people from quitting. You’ll burn yourself out trying. People quit things.
Some will stick around for the long haul and see the job through. People quit sports, school, jobs, businesses and everything else. In all endeavors and professions, only a few see the job through.
- You only need 1-5 people to experience financial independence. Musical artists make a lot of money when they have 1 hit. 5 hits will make them rich. In the meantime, they spend years, playing colleges, bars, picnics, festivals and writing music until someone discovers them. One best-selling book will make you some money. 5 best-sellers will make you fairly wealthy. It’s the same in every profession.
- In ALL companies, most people make little to no money. In ALL companies most people quit after talking to 1-5 people that say no (Just like I did for 10 years).
$1000 A MONTH WILL CHANGE SOMEONES LIFE. Where else can someone make $1000 a month or more in RESIDUAL INCOME without investing an arm and a leg? If you were to poll 1000 people in your city and if they gave you an honest answer, you would find that all 1000 would want to make $1000 a month. Why? Because it will make a difference in their lives. $1000 a month ($12,000/yr) will allow you to:
Remodel a room in your home.
Take an extravagant vacation each year with the family.
Send a to college.
Buy 2 nice new cars (payment covered each month).
Increase the size of your home.
Have peace of mind.
Eat out once a week at the nicest restaurant in town for the entire family.
Fill your home with gifts for the whole family over the holidays.
Learn to fly an airplane or helicopter.
Go back to school.
You don’t have to give up what you are doing to establish a $1000/mo residual income. You can do it on a part time basis. $1000 a month is just a start. The important thing to know is that the opportunity is there.
Millions of people in the world make $100,000 a month ($1.2 million per years) yet few do it in any one profession. In the movie business, only a few thousand ever go on to make over $1 million per year, yet millions of people go for it. In professional sports, only a couple thousand people ever go on to make over $1 million per year, yet millions go after the big money in pro sports. This is how it is in all professions. The thing to understand is, in network marketing you have a chance. Just like in anything else, you must be exceptional if you want to create an exceptional lifestyle in our profession. But I would never become a professional athlete or musician. I was willing to learn the simple business of Network Marketing. I believe that ANYONE can learn it.
So what is the life of a professional networker?
Imagine, calling Am Express Travel- telling them you want to book first class tickets to Telluride. Let them know to book it and then email you with the confirmation. Price doesn’t matter.
Writing a check for $10,000 to your favorite charity each month
Your mother needs a new car and she’s on a fixed budget. You drive up in her new car that you bought for cash that day and hand her the keys on her birthday.
You are on vacation in Cancun and you are having such a great time after 10 days that you and your family decide to stay for another week, because you can (and your business is virtual so you can work from anywhere).
Renting a 12,000 square foot mansion on the water in Ft Lauderdale and inviting 10 of your top leaders to come spend 3-4 nights with you to celebrate their success over the past year.
Taking 30 days off to tour the British Virgin Islands in a leased catamaran. Your captain and first mate are also chefs and they cook every meal for you on your journey.
Leasing a private Cessna Citation once a quarter to fly to the coast with a few of your team members, just to build their dreams.
Helicopter skiing in the alps. (You got to the top of the mountain in a helicopter).
Taking 2 weeks in Africa to help build a school with your family.
Spending your entire summer at your summer cabin on Lake Tahoe.
Moving to Costa Rica and living off your residual income.
Learning to fly an airplane.
Living off your residual check so you can pursue a career in acting.
Going out to dinner with 25 of your teammates and pulling out your credit card, telling them, “it’s on you”.
Taking a group of people to see the Beatles show “Love” in Las Vegas and paying for everyone’s ticket.
Remodeling your entire home. Those old dingy rooms are no longer bothering you.
Repaving the driveway.
Putting new tires on the car so you don’t have to worry about blowing out a tire!
Buying the brand new Porche that was just released.
Giving away all your old clothes and spending the whole weekend refreshing your
MOST OF THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN DONE BY SENDOUTCARDS DISTRIBUTORS with SENDOUTCARDS income. In fact, SendOutCards (Kody Bateman) has paid out almost $80 million in commissions.
Now if I had come to you back in 2005 and said, “SendOutCards is a $2.5 million company and in the next 7 1/2 years Kody Bateman will pay out $80 Million in commissions to you and others that join us over the next few years, you may have laughed. Yet, he did it. Today I am suggesting that I believe that in the next 7 1/2 years, Kody will pay to us over $250 million in commissions, you may or may not believe me. But I believe that there will be 3-4 times as much paid in commission over the next 7.5 years than the past 7.5 years.
