Put Your Seacret Business On Steroids From Your Laptop

Recruiting Seacret Agents With The Green Goblin

 

 
I have people ask me almost daily…

“If the network marketing model is so great why is the failure rate of so many including Seacret Agents so high?”

It’s a great question.

And it’s true.

Most people who join Seacret or any company in the network marketing industry will ultimately quit and fail.

So how can I spend my entire day at the Comic Book Expo here in Calgary hanging out with friends and enjoying myself and STILL out recruit most people?

Seacret-agent-jess-and-goblin

I’ll reveal exactly how I’m able to attract and enrol Seacret Agents while chillin with the Green Goblin instead of having to do a lot of the activities most people hate!

Why Do People Fail In Seacret?

Ya, so by now you’ve probably figured out I’m not normal.

For lot’s of reasons.

I’m a full blown comic book geek for starters.

Which is why Jeff (my partner)and I were chillin with the Green Goblin at the Comic Book Expo in Calgary the other day.

It’s an absolute blessing to be able to do what we love to do and still build a business.

While I was geeking out pouring over coveted comics from the 60’s that I could add to our collection…

…I had 2 Seacret Agents join my team and 1 preferred customer order products from this blog.

Now that’s not really abnormal or spectacular.

It’s actually becoming quite typical (this blog had over 11,00 visitors last month wink wink)

But because of what I happened to be doing at the time when I checked my phone and saw the recruits and customer come into my back office it made me stop and think…

Part 3

If you are catching this on the tail end, you’re going to want to stop right here and catch up on the first 2 MLM Recruiting Secrets.

The point of all this?

Recruiting is literally the number one most important skill set you can have in your Network Marketing business.

You can wish and pray that it isn’t…but that ain’t gonna save you sista.

Maybe it’s time to face the facts and just get real good at it.

How’s that for an idea?

Lucky for you, I have broken down the 3 secrets to really becoming a master at recruiting.

1. How you see yourself – Click here to read more on this secret.

2. How others see you – Click here and read more on this one.

3. What you say – You’re in the right spot for this one :)

Clearly the last one is something that is actually talked about a lot in this industry…

What You Say

I really feel that this ‘secret’ is really the most obvious one.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that if you aren’t saying the right things, you probably aren’t going to recruit anyone.

So then why do so many get it wrong?

I mean, come on, there are a ton of…

…courses

…scripts

…audios

…books

…youtube videos on the topic.

Shouldn’t we all be masters by now?

Are we really THIS lazy?

Do you see what’s wrong with this picture?

Seriously, if I just outed you for doing this… or you’re a leader teaching this stuff to your team PLEASE for the love of all things holy STOP!

Look, when I was new in business and especially new in network marketing I went to networking events to meet people when “my list dried up”

(PS – that’s code for I had talked to all my warm market that I was COMFORTABLE talking to).

Sound familiar?

MLM Recruiting Secrets – Read This Or Stay Broke – Part 2

Part 2

If you missed the post last week be sure to go back and read it here.

As I already mentioned in the previous post and as you have likely guessed by now, recruiting is the lifeblood of your business.

The very FATE of your business and success in this industry rests on your ability to master this one skill.

Haha no pressure right?

To recap quickly the three “secrets” to mastering recruiting are:

  1. How you see yourself. (Go back and read this you lazy bugger)
  2. How others see you.
  3. What you say.

Today I’m going to break down an element of the formula often overlooked and under practiced.

How Others See You

People judge you.

And guess what?

You judge them.

How’s that for a truth bomb?

The expression “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover” might be true but it’s not a mantra that society operates by.

In fact it operates the opposite way.mlm-recruting-secrets-big-maginfying-glass

You can hate it, fight it, and disagree with it all you want.

But in the end it’s just the way it is.

People are going to judge you before they make a decision to go into business with you.

Where most people are completely oblivious is exactly what they are being judged on.

Here’s a clue.

It’s not the stuff they talk about in stuffy business books from the 90’s.

Things like dressing sharp and making sure you have breath mints and business cards on hand at all times is not what I’m talking about here although those things have there place.

The people you approach have something much more important on there minds.

Themselves!

Your prospects are looking at you and immediately asking themselves

  • “Can this person take ME to the promise land?”
  • “Does working with this person give ME a competitive advantage in the market place?”
  • “What will associating with this person do for MY personal brand?”
  • “Does this person know something that I don’t but need to know?”

These are the questions people are asking themselves.

I know you thought your days of worrying about whether you were going to get to sit at the cool kids table were over but they’re not.

Speaking as someone who didn’t sit at the cool kids table at school I know this can sound a little caddy and immature but it’s absolutely true.

People psychologically still want to be associated with the “cool kids”.

It’s one of the reasons top producers STAY top producers regardless of what opportunity they represent.

Their reputation precedes them.

Some of these top leaders literally have people follow them around the industry like groupies would a rock star.

A loyal following of people who all want to be associated with them in any way they can.

But how do these leaders do it?

They didn’t just wake up with a huge following of people who trust them.

Did they?

Becoming One Of The Cool Kids

There is no doubt that nothing speaks louder than results.

Results give you instant credibility, notoriety, and super charged self belief.

“But Jess you just said before I GET results I need to change the way people see me”

You’re right. It’s a bit of a catch 22.

The people without results are competing with people who have results and the people with results keep getting more and more.

How do you break the cycle and become someone people trust?

There are lot’s of strategies but here’s some to chew on:

Change How You See Yourself

Just as I covered in my previous post the way you see yourself will ultimately impact the way others see you.

As you grow and develop yourself you will see a tangible change in the way others see you.

For a full breakdown on how I apply this check this out!

Star Jacking

Birds of a feather flock together.

One of my favourite shows of all time was HBO’s Entourage.

It was the most realistic look into the inside of Hollywood life ever portrayed in a television series.

mlm-recruiting-secrets-entourage

It portrays the life of a young stars rise to fame and fortune all the while keeping his entourage of friends close and along for the ride.

The show did a great job of showcasing all the “perks” that being part of a movie stars entourage has to offer.

The same thing applies in your life as an entrepreneur (without the drugs and pornstars).

Your associations and mentors say a lot about you.

Are you hanging with A listers or does it look a little more like the cast of a sub par reality show?

When people see you surrounding yourself with successful mentors it sends a social cue that you are “in”.

You get to “steal” their credibility as you build up your own.

Obviously the lessons you learn from surrounding yourself with great mentors is the real prize but getting a little “social boost” is a nice ancillary benefit.

Now what I wouldn’t recommend doing is finding people with the social esteem you want and becoming a mindless, disingenuous sicophant.

That’s off putting and will actually produce the opposite result you’re looking for.

Remember you are moulding yourself into a leader not a professional follower.

What you can do is find these leaders and do what you can to get into their inner circle.

Participate in their training, get results using something you’ve learned from them and make them a testimonial, offer to help them with something in exchange for some time with them.

More or less put yourself on their radar in a ways that say “Im hungry!”

Be Your Own PR Agent

People are going to research you online.

It’s the world we live in.

It’s not going to change in fact most experts predict it’s only going to become more apart of our lives.

If your prospects googled your name (they will) what would they find?

Would they see a portfolio of sites and references that build you up and showcase your best qualities?

Would they find pictures from your last high school kegger?

Or maybe worse would they find nothing at all?

Don’t get me wrong, having a personal brand doesn’t replace results but it helps you control the way people can connect with you, the way they see you, and gives you a platform to share your results from once you start to have them.

Some places where you can start to manage your own PR:

  • Social Networks like: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
  • Create a YouTube channel and share what you’re learning as you learn it.
  • Create a blog and position it in front of your target audience.

These are all things I’ve done to connect with people and frame myself the way I want to publicly.

In my experience my blog and videos have been the most impactful.

If you want to have a blog and videos positioned in front of your target audience but have no idea how to do it check out my Push Button Results and I’ll do it for you.

Once you have your content and brand online  you can start to experience one of the most powerful effects to change how prospects see you; Social Proof!

mlm-recruiting-secrets-quotes

People who like what you’re about and are getting value from the content you provide will share your stuff.

This all starts to contribute to the way people see you.

This can seem a little daunting but like I mentioned it’s only going to become more and more how the world makes it’s buying decisions so you might as well dive in now.

Make sure you catch my next post where I’m going to wrap up this 3 part series as well as give you some tangible scripts and strategies I use to recruit on command.

MLM Recruiting Secrets – Read This Or Stay Broke

Part 1 of 3

After spending some time around the industry you begin to realize there are really no MLM recruiting secrets.

mlm-recruiting-secrets

There are just simple things that top producers do that the majority of reps don’t do.

Sometimes the best place to keep a secret is in plain sight.

The real title of this post should “How To Do What You Know You Should Be Doing”.

After coaching thousands of people all over the world of all ages, races, and sexes you start to get a grip on what makes people tick.

Human nature by and large is pretty consistent.

People want to avoid pain, indulge in pleasure, find the path of least resistance and exercise as little discipline as possible.

It’s how we are.

But it’s not how top recruiters are.

Does Personal Recruiting Even Matter?

“But Jess I was told that I just needed to find 3 people and then those people would find 3 people and eventually I would be over riding an international team of reps and living the good life”

Cute story.

This may have happened to a few people in the industry but unfortunately they are the exception not the rule.

Truth is if you want to build a significant income in network marketing you will need to recruit a LOT of people personally.

You not only need to come to terms and accept this but you need to be excited about it!

Why do you need to recruit personally (width) and not just through your team?

Good question.

Here’s how my brain gets down:

  • The numbers don’t lie. Most people will quit faster than you can say getting started training and for a variety of reasons. Because you can’t go deep in a leg you haven’t started yet be prepared to run some numbers to find some people who want to go to work and build with you.
  • Once you do have a few key people in place they are highly likely to do roughly 50% of what you do right and 100% of what you do wrong. Guess what they will do when they SEE YOU stop recruiting directs? You guessed it.
  • If you haven’t had your top person quit on you than you haven’t been doing it long enough. It happens. Good people quit for a variety of reasons. And I’m not talking about new people. Your best most profitable successful people will likely leave at some point. The only insurance against this is to continue to actively recruit personally.

There ya go.

Not just a fancy hat rack right?

If Personal Recruiting Is So Important Why Do People Struggle With It?

This should be abundantly clear at this point but I’ll say it again.

Recruiting is the single most important skill set you can possess in Network Marketing.

It also seems to be what the majority struggle with.

Hmm….

Seems to me we have a BIG FAT problem here.

The simple answer is ultimately the same reason we struggle with anything.

It can almost always be boiled down to FEAR.

But let me take off the gloves with you here for a second.

That’s the canned network marketing trainer answer.

This post isn’t intended to make you feel like you’re walking on sunshine after you’re done reading.

Even if all this stings a little.

I want to give you the truth.

I want you to be successful.

That’s what I care about.

Are you sitting down? Because here’s the real answer.

The real reason you’re not recruiting like a top recruiter is because you’re lazy.

I know you don’t want to hear that.

“But Jess you don’t understand, I have kids, I have a demanding job, my spouse isn’t supportive, etc, etc”

Listen I have empathy for everyones specific situation. I really do.

But none of those reasons are going to get you any closer to your goals. And if they aren’t getting you closer to your goals then we need to accept them for what they really are:

A self fulfilling prophecy that says: “I can’t do it”.

Let me clarify what I mean when I say 9 out of 10 reps are lazy.

Most people don’t or won’t spend their time on the things that make them a top recruiter.

These 3 “secrets” in my humble opinion are:

Sleeping With Makeup On – Is It Bad?

This one goes out to the ladies.

…sorry guys, I am a girl after all!

I know we have all gone to bed with makeup on.

Maybe it was just a few times, or if you are like I used to be…. quite often.

Yuppp… You can call me Maverick

One third of women confess to doing it AT LEAST 2 times a week.

Why?

Either you’re too tired.

Had a glass of wine too many.

or are just plain lazy.

Whatever the reason might be, we think to ourselves…

…”it’s all good, I’ll just wash my face in the morning”

…”nothing will happen”

Well I’m here to tell you that Sleeping with Makeup On is BAD NEWS BEARS.

sleeping-with-makeup

The picture of the lady above is her before and after results after 30 days of not washing off her makeup before going to bed.

30 DAYS!

That’s not even that long.

Now this might be an extreme example, but definitely goes to give you a visual representation of what not taking off your makeup actually can do to your skin.

I know seeing this really made me feel kinda shitty because I probably have done this for more than 30 days over time.

…oops.

So what causes this?

At Home Facial Peel – Seacret Facial Peeling Gel

seacret-facial-peeling-gelDid you know that 80% of fine lines and wrinkles come from dead skin?

Or that a lot of acne problems and blotchy skin is caused by clogged pores from dead skin build up?

It’s true!

We gotta get rid our lives of all that dead skin.

Exfoliation is the way.

It is probably the MOST important step when it comes to skin care.

 

 

Which is why people are going as far as getting chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments.

But what if you could have an at home facial peel that wasn’t so invasive or hard on your pocket book?

Would you do it?

Probably.

If you said no, it’s most likely because you don’t really know why exfoliation is so important.

So let me spill the beans.

Exfoliation…

…removes layers of dead skin.

…clears clogged pores

…reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and aides in anti-aging

…increases absorption of vitamins and minerals in the skin, and

…allows for a really close, long lasting shave (for the men out there!)

at-home-facial-peel

Seriously, all of those things??

I mean, I knew exfoliating your skin was good for you but I never really knew why.

Like that it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

Wow!

But before you turn off your computer and run and grab the first exfoliator in sight….

…let me give you a WARNING.

Use a Smart Goals Worksheet to Crush it in Seacret

smart-goals-worksheetSo we’re already half way through January in to 2014.

Imagine that.

I still remember, vividly, when the clock struck midnight in the year 2000.

Here we are 14 years later.

Time flies, doesn’t it?

And statistically speaking…

by this time every year…

…most people have already given up on their new years resolutions.

You know..

those “promises” you make to yourself like…

…I’m going to loose weight

…I will quit smoking

…I will read more

…I will write in my journal.

…I will achieve x rank this year.

Whatever the resolution is.

It really doesn’t matter.

Isn’t that sad?

I think so!

I have spent a lot of time thinking about why this happens.

I believe the reason is…

…that people don’t have a clue HOW they are going to achieve them.

There’s no plan.

There’s no structure.

Just a definitive, dramatic statement.

Don’t get me wrong…

… I am ALL for BIG goals.

I just want to be able to equip you with the tools necessary to achieve them.

So here we go!!

 Why resolutions don’t work…

The Lil Kim Plastic Surgery Horror – Anti-Aging Gone Wrong…

lil-kim-plastic-surgery

Those can’t be the same person…

Can they?

Yup!

This is the story of the Lil Kim plastic surgery adventure horror.

The picture on the left was the OG Kim back in ’96.

 

When, I think, she was the most beautiful.

Move all the way forward to the picture on the right.

This is the NEW Kimmy on the block.

She unleashed her new look to the world at the Hot 97 Summer Jam in June of 2013.

Needless to say…

…it has got A LOT of attention.

Honestly, when I was checking out Google Images for pictures of Lil Kim, I thought Google was making a mistake.

Throwing up pictures of random women.

But then I thought….

…this is GOOGLE!

It don’t make mistakes.

They were all so unrecognizable.

How on earth could this be the same person?

…turns out Lil Kim loves her some plastic surgery.

Check out what TMZ has to say about her newest look.

 

Now, I would have to agree with TMZ here…

She TOTALLY looks like a different race.

I personally don’t think she looks good.

She definitely takes “plastic surgery gone wrong” to a whole. Notha. Level.

But she isn’t alone.

Over 15 million people every year get some form of plastic surgery.

Not all of those people are becoming Lil Kim Plastic Surgery Duplicates though…

I would say…

And I’m just spit balling here…

95% of people would think that Lil Kim’s look is a lil much.

So what type of surgery are people getting done?

Where are people getting the most plastic surgery?

The results might be shocking.

Seacret Dead Sea Mud Soap Review

I never thought I would be writing this Seacret Dead Sea Mud Soap Review.

 

When I first heard people were getting clear, younger looking skin by covering their face with mud…

I thought I had ventured into the twilight zone.

I have been using different facial products my whole life.

…Channel, Este Lauder, Clinique, Vichy, St. Ives, Element, Shiseido….

(to name a few…hehe)

And never have any of those been made of mud…

…or were a bar of soap for that matter!

Maybe I was left out of something pretty fascinating.

You never know unless you try it right?

So I did.

The result?

I freakin fell in love with Dead Sea Mud Soap.

dead-sea-mud-soap

I used it 2 times a day on my body, hands, and face.

All over!

My face, typically plagued with acne, began to clear up.

Even IF I got a new pimple…

…it was gone within a day!

My complexion all over was becoming even.

Blackheads were being vanquished.

It was like a magic trick.

Mud seems like it would be full of impurities..

I mean, that’s why when you were a kid your mom always screamed after you, covered in mud from playing in the park, threw you in the tub, just to get you clean.

Right?

Wrong…

… not ALL mud is full of dirt and debris.

Dead Sea Mud contains a ton of dead sea salt and minerals that are beneficial in skincare, like…

…magnesium

…potassium

…calcium

…natural tar, and

…silicon compounds.

Regular ol’ mud, albiet does contain minerals, is mainly composed of Soil, Silt, and Clay.

Not things you want on your skin!

Now that we know what Dead Sea Mud is made of…

and although you know that I love the stuff….

…I really want to give you the most unbiased review of the Seacret Dead Sea Mud Soap as possible.

So you can make up your own mind.

Home Party Businesses 2014 – Waste Of Time Or Cash Machine?

It may or may not come as a surprise to you but home party businesses are booming…again.

Companies like Tupperware, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, and Shaklee among many others made hosting these shindigs popular and profitable all the way back in the 50’s.

home-party-businesses

The premise is pretty simple.

Invite some people who know, like, and trust you to a place they are comfortable coming to (your crib) where you like a home based ninja will be waiting to relentlessly judo kick some expensive products down their throats.

At least this is the vision conjured up in the minds of the public.

There are plenty of horror stories of being invited to a friends place to hang out only to unexpectantly walk into a room filled with other people who also look like they have no idea why they’re there and a white board propped up in the corner.

Don’t bother looking for the exit. The overly friendly guy in the suit has it blocked off.

Of course not all parties go down like this.

How could they?

This business model of inviting your homey’s over to see your home based business opportunity and products has been responsible for literally billions of dollars of sales in the direct selling industry.

The model has certainly proven to more popular amongst women as they make up roughly 80% of direct sellers.

Despite the success the model seemed to fade as new companies and new technologies stepped up to the plate in the 90’s and 2000’s.

In an age of internet, cell phones, heavy traffic and longer work hours people found other ways to move product and enrol people into the direct sales industry.

These older companies, however, didn’t change their play.

They kept doing what helped them become the billion dollar giants they are.

Smart move.

These companies and their stocks continued to grow despite one of the worst recessions America has faced since the late 20’s historic economic collapse.

Newer companies with savvy owners were observing these home party businesses and taking notes.

This old school tactic was about to make a resurgence as companies like ViSalus Sciences, Vemma, and Seacret Direct all implemented the home party model with incredible success.

In Home Parties How To

Before you dive into the tips below see how I managed to escape the home party game so I could rake it in online instead.

Alright if you’re feelin the vapors and lookin to party like it’s 1979 then here are a few tips to help you out.
