“I sponsor people but they don’t do anything!”

This is something I hear all the time from folks. I have some news for you. This is normal and to be expected. 80% of all people tend to get bogged down in life and never really get rolling on their own. Have you ever heard of the Pareto Principle? In the world of business, it simply means 80% of the success comes from 20% of the people and actions.

In Vollara the best way to make the Pareto Principle work for you instead of against you is to help the 80% move to become the 20%. Let me give a word picture to help see this: Imagine each person that you sponsor as a portal – kind of like a time machine portal. They are a door that takes you into another world. That world is all the people they know and have influence with. So how do you walk through this door and help your average 80% performer become and 20% performer generating 80% of the success?

Creating a culture that fosters business success

Nata and I began our networking career in 1978. I was a City Bus driver earning about $1000.00 a month. We had two children and another on the way. We had everything we owned in the back of a Chevy Blazer and had to move into my younger brothers cement basement.

When I found this amazing industry, I did not have a network of friends or business associates. I had no money. My car did not have a back window in Minnesota winters. I was very afraid of public speaking. In other words, I was not a great candidate for success in network marketing. Continue reading Creating a culture that fosters business success

A Never-Ending Stream of Customers and New Partners

In 1978, Dr. Harold Bergquist took me under his wing as a new Distributor in networking. We were at the Thunderbird Motel in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Thunderbird sits next to the Mall of America and the stadium where the Minnesota Vikings played outdoors before dome facilities. It was pretty amazing when the Los Angelos Rams would come into play the Vikes and it was 30 below wind chill. Bud Grant would not let the Vikings wear gloves or coats. We intimidated the Rams to a loss before the flip of the coin!

Anyway, Dr. Bergquist heard I was living in a basement, driving a car with no back window and desiring success in my new business. He took me aside and said, “Son, if you will share the business opportunity with 500 people in a year, you will never earn less than $50,000.00 a year for the rest of your life.” I believed him and when people were standing up and sharing their goals and commitments, I stood up and stated “I will share the business with 500 prospects in the next 365 days.” Continue reading A Never-Ending Stream of Customers and New Partners

Delayed Gratification – A Leadership Trait

To build a great Vollara business and income, a leader must delay gratification.  It is natural to want success now.  We live in an instant fast paced world.  People lose interest if the reward does not come right after the effort.

Zig Ziglar said for years before his passing that we can be successful when we help others become successful. In Vollara our pay off in income and lifestyle comes after we have helped others become successful. Sometimes that takes a few hours, sometimes perhaps a few years and sometimes longer. Continue reading Delayed Gratification – A Leadership Trait

Meeting Etiquette

I attended my first business meeting at my brother Jim’s house about 36 years ago.  We were both new in our business and were pretty unorganized.  I can’t begin to guess how many thousands of events I have participated in since then or how many people we have impacted. But, I can tell you we have learned how to conduct a successful event. Here are some basic event protocols that can help you plan and conduct successful events for your business.

Goals – Your Life Depends On Them

If you are not making the progress you want to make and are capable of achieving…

It is because your Goals are not clearly defined!

These words were penned nearly a decade ago by J. Paul Meyer who is considered by many to be one of the early founders of personal development thinking.  If I could master one skill in my life, it would be the Art of Setting and Achieving Goals.  You and I can change our lives by changing our goals.  Proverbs 23:7 says “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  Whatever fills a persons mind tends to become real in his experiences. Continue reading Goals – Your Life Depends On Them

High Tech or High Touch?

Since the growth of the internet, Home Based Business Owners have argued what is the best way to grow their business.  Internet Technology or Face to Face building. I have always said, “when faced with two good options, take both!”

There are pros and cons in any form of doing business.  Meeting people face to face requires being outgoing and what do you do when you run out of people you know?  (I will address this later, but think of this.  I started at age 24 and did not know many people and was very shy.  Yet, today over one million people have joined my team)  I will show you how you can never run out of people in a moment.  Continue reading High Tech or High Touch?
