11 Amazing Benefits To Joining a Network Marketing Company You Didn’t Know Of

The business landscape has changed drastically, you are either flowing with it or swimming upstream. Network marketing businesses are quickly becoming the fastest growing form of entrepreneurship making it very easy and attainable for one to start their own business and work from the comfort of their home. For those that are employed by an employer, they can work this type of home-based business after work hours or during spare time for additional income – essentially you’re building a company within a company. Building your business out of the comfort of your home allows for flexibility that is difficult when renting or buying office/warehouse space as in traditional businesses, not to mention high monthly overhead costs. Network marketing requires major self-discipline, organization and most importantly, a massive and clear vision. With that being said the benefits can be quite substantial as you will read on. Here are some key benefits for creating a winning business in a losing economy and just a few of the many more advantages of the network marketing model over traditional business models.

Thinking Beyond a Financial Rut

With the unfavourable prevailing economic conditions, people are undergoing a lot of stress. And if you live in Alberta then it has been magnified by ten fold so how do you think beyond this situation? The 2015 recession is going to leave its mark – in more ways than one and it’s not correcting itself anytime soon. In recent news, the major oil companies are now starting to lay people off. If you’ve been following the news, then you know it’s been an extremely crucial time for businesses, families, our children’s future, our parents who are going into retirement and much more. Suicide counts have gone up, crime rates have soared, foreclosures happening left right and centre, people are depleting their savings and RRSPs leaving them with major retirement setbacks, divorce has increased and Continue reading

Find Your Vision and Hold Fast

When you have figured out your ‘why‘ in life, you must then decide on what you want to do, be and have. How do you want your life to look like? Will what you are doing right now get you to the life that you deserve? If you continue what you are doing for the next 5 – 10 years what will that look like for you and your family? Many people decide what they want their life to look like based on their current situation. What I tell my clients is to take 20 – 45 minutes with their journal and blue ink, and write down, if money wasn’t an object, all that their hearts desire. This step is THE most crucial because one of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is because they haven’t decided on it yet. Continue reading

Leadership Through Wisdom and Integrity

Leaders have vision, they think outside of the box, they are sharp and quick on their feet looking into the future making intelligent decisions and usually have the craziest ideas. But even the most brilliant, quickest, smartest leader is not the most effective without grace, wisdom and integrity. Great intellect has no guarantee of good judgement and good judgement comes from experience turned into wisdom. When leaders come from a place of integrity, it comes from the core of who they truly are and when they put themselves out there it takes a lot of courage and that also comes with a whole new level of responsibility and accountability and respect.

Leading with conviction trumps intellect and one’s character shines through and is  much more successful when connecting with people especially having a strong moral base with genuine values who stand above the rest. Trust is the key when leading. When people feel cared for the connection is so much stronger and that trust grows willingly without the need to convince. When people trust you their fear is minimized and they gain admiration and appreciation for you. Continue reading

The Organizational Benefits of Personal Leadership Effectiveness

With the oil crisis and what’s happening with the economy globally, businesses are looking to change processes to become more effective. Efficiency in human capitalism plays a key role in the success of any business where lay offs have been rolling out like hot cakes. Keeping skilled employees in the right jobs is still proving to be an important factor in the current economic climate; however, many businesses are finding that to keep the engine of a business going they need to invest more in to their people.

Personal Leadership Effectiveness is what makes a successful organization, it doesn’t matter if a person is the President, CEO, a manager or a valued employee. The foundation of personal leadership is all in a person’s “character”, which essentially is who they are at their core, their fundamental qualities.

To gain a competitive advantage, people must govern themselves and lead from within. A successful organization dedicates their leadership to their employees by building and sustaining their culture and know that their modus operandi could not be played out authentically if they don’t focus on a strong character-centered personal leadership foundation.

Effective Tips to Work from Home

If you are an entrepreneur then you work mainly from home. For some time now, technology has allowed contractors, or sick employees, to work from home or anywhere in the world. There are many benefits of working from home and yet there are also many challenges with a home office. If you have been in the corporate system for a while then adjusting to the loneliness at home with no more water cooler conversations or people to go for lunch with can get a bit lonely at times. I ventured out on my own in about 2007, I was laid off work and decided I was going to start my own personal shopping service and back then, besides LinkedIn, social media, for business, did not really exist.

Network Your Net Worth – Coming Out of Your Shell

If you are shy, afraid, or care too much about what people think about you, then moving forward will be difficult, or extremely slow for you. No one is born shy or afraid, it is a set of conditions that have been instilled in us at some point. I had a client that was an introvert and as a result his business was failing and his relationships were not existent. We did some work together and pin pointed when exactly when that kicked in for him. We went back as far as his childhood and he remembered that, in grade 1, at parent teacher interviews, he overheard his teacher saying to his mother that he was a very shy kid. So, as a child, when you hear something like that, it sticks with you and you develop into what our teachers or parents say we are and even now as adults if aren’t careful of really knowing who we are, other people’s opinions can really convince you otherwise.  Continue reading
