Daily Success Nuggets

Success Nuggets

A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. I have believed and taught for nearly 40 years that “getting started is ½ done”. I am working on my third book. I had planned on writing this book called “What I learned about Success from Failure for about six years.” But, until I typed the first page I only continued to plan. The first page was truly ½ done. I now have twenty chapters completed.

In the Vollara business, the big lifetime residual income comes from sponsoring and building teams. It is easy and fun to think about sponsoring one person a week. It is exciting to build models that show how much one would earn with 4 strong power legs. But, setting up those first business presentations is not only the most important but it is also the toughest task we will face in this quest. Once you conduct those first 10 one on one presentations, the second 10 are easier. And, it just keeps getting easier, more fun and more profitable.

It generally takes 5 to 7 one on one appointment’s offering the business and inviting someone to join as new partner.  Some high powered presenters can sponsir 1 of 3 while some newbie’s sponosr 1 of 10.  When I invite to join, I offer the Career Pack at a cost just over $3000.00. As a level six leader, that adds $1,100.00 to my bonus check. Accomplished weekly, that adds about $60,000.00 annually!

Someone says to me, $3000.00 is allot of money to ask for. I respond to that by reminding I am not selling seven technologies to my new partner. I am putting someone in business. A man that works on my staff owned 25 Burger Kings. He told me the Burger King sign package is $70,000.   Opening a GNC vitamin store would cost over $300,000. A MacDonalds franchise on a good corner is over $1,000,000. I would not trade my Vollara business for any one of those business models.  It is important to put things in perspective.  The Vollara Career Pack is America’s best plan for launching a business.

Here is my future

Over the next 12 months, I will give no less than 5 business interviews a week, sometimes 10. I am confident that I will sponsor 52 new partners and most will join with a Career Pack. That will provide my family with a $60,000.00 raise. But, in reality much much more will be earned than $60,000.00. Why more, because out of that group many will take hold of the opportunity and soar. This is going to be an exciting year. Why don’t you join me! In tomorrow’s Success Nuggets, I will discuss how to find these folks to interview and how to interview them too!

The Apprentice

Donald Trump brought to the forefront the Apprentice position in his recent TV series. Being an Apprentice to a successful business person was a big opportunity and the actual apprentice was held to high standards.

In February, Vollara rolled out a beta test Executive Apprentice program that launched many to Executive with higher income and benefits.  In August the test program became a regular part of the business plan for the Company.  In the months and years to come, thousands of Executive Apprentices will move into management rolls as Vollara Executives.

Doubling Your Income In 60 Days

Why do we work harder to survive than we will to succeed? In 1979, I had no home, a old chevy blazer and everything I owned in it including my two children and my wife Nata. It was freezing cold out in Minnesota and we spent our last $25 for a room to sleep in for the night. We laid Michelle and Mike Jr. down that night not knowing where they would sleep the next night or how we would feed them or put gas in the car.

Survival instincts kicked in and we resolved all and built a great future. When your kids are hungry and tired, 100% of your focus is on survival.

What would happen if we put 100% of our focus on success? Success in building a great family, great finances and a great Vollara business? In August and September of 2015, Vollara has given us a unprecedented opportunity to double our income through sponsoring. Read on and take advantage of this one time opportunity to build your team in 60 days. Continue reading Doubling Your Income In 60 Days

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

Debt is a Disease

About 30 years ago I met an amazing man. His name was Jim Rohn. I listened to a cassette of his teaching and became a personal development fanatic that day. Later I met Jim and became his friend. He taught me many lessons including “debt is a disease.”

When I met him I was deep in debt with no way out. Like so many Americans, I bought now and paid later. Jim encouraged me to become debt free and live that way the rest of my life. This message was stimulated by a Facebook message I read from my niece Amy Martin. Continue reading Debt is a Disease

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
