Referral Marketing is all about leadership and connecting, and we could all use some pointers and reminders. One of my friends Michael Bennett sent in the following article that he found, and we wanted to share it with everyone.
As a train's source of energy and direction, the locomotive plays a vital role. However, unless a locomotive connects to other cars on the track, it is relatively useless. A train's value comes from its ability to transport massive amounts of cargo, and doing so requires the locomotive to link up with dozens of freight cars. Traveling by itself, a locomotive would arrive at its destination empty-handed. In that case, its journey would be nothing more than a waste of fuel.
Leaders are like locomotives in that they're blessed with drive, energy, and vision. However, until leaders learn the art of connection, their influence remains minimal. In isolation, their talents accomplish little, and their efforts are squandered.
Let's look at practical ways whereby leaders can make meaningful connections with others.View full article →
Every year, our families face their share of colds, sore throats, and stomach aches. When we do, we expect our doctors to prescribe us something to cure it. Leaving the doctor empty-handed seems like a rip-off. After all, what did we even visit the doctor for if they are not going to hand us an antibiotic or some cure in pill form? As it turns out, leaving the doctor's office without that pill shaped treatment could be the best thing for us.View full article →
Despite the hype, genetic modification consistently fails to live up to industry claims. Only two GM traits have ever made it to market: herbicide resistance and BT toxin expression. Other promises of genetic modification have failed to materialize. The much vaunted GM ‘golden rice’ – hailed as a cure to vitamin A deficiency – has never made it out of the laboratory, partly because in order to meet recommended levels of vitamin A intake, consumers would need to eat 12 bowls of the rice every day. In 2004, the Kenyan government admitted that Monsanto’s GM sweet potatoes were no more resistant to feathery mottle virus than ordinary strains, and in fact produced lower yields. And in January 2008, news that scientists had modified a carrot to cure osteoporosis by providing calcium had to be weighed against the fact that you would need to eat 1.6 kilograms of these vegetables each day to meet your recommended calcium intake.View full article →
Mindset and posture are two terms we hear a lot of in the network marketing and direct sales world, but what exactly do these two terms mean?
Terminology that is thrown around loosely on MLM conference calls and seminars, but not fully understood, tends to leave people puzzled and unable to take action. Therefore, I thought I would take a little time to clarify some things.View full article →
Throughout the last month, the major focus for VitaMist was weight loss. If you are doing a wellness program every month threw VitaMist you would have received in the pass complimentary packets of our greatest product, B-Slim. Weight loss and B-Slim were also the major focus for our Product calls in the passed.
Why are we paying all this attention to weight loss? Quite simply, I believe obesity is the number one health problem facing the country. It has reached epidemic proportions, and it is getting worse.View full article →
If you are being pushed around by fear, anxiety, self-doubt and worry, then it's time to "burn your boat" and become fully committed to your VitaMist career!
I believe that the great NFL Hall of Fame coach, Vince Lombardi, had it right when he said, "The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor." Do you agree with Coach Lombardi, or are you the type of person who has difficulty staying focused and keeping commitments? Do you allow the negative influences of fear, anxiety, self-doubt and worry to dominate your thinking and sabotage your results?View full article →
As you will have seen, our February Product of the Month is talking about the heart. So, in keeping with that theme, I wanted to take the space in my monthly column to draw everyone’s attention to the latest, frightening, statistics published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
As a nation, we are not very healthy. We have allowed ourselves to become overweight. We eat too much, we eat processed, nutrient-depleted foods, and we exercise less and less. All of this has resulted in the following statistics:View full article →
