I have been in Network Marketing now for about 4 years and the #1 problem in Network Marketing that I have learned is most people don’t have a big enough network to build a successful business. A lot of people come into Network Marketing very excited about their new journey. The problem that arises and arises very quickly with a lot of people is that their family and friends are not on board and they run out of people to talk to. I see this time and time again and when this happens what do a majority of them do? They QUIT. It’s very sad to see people quit so quickly but that’s what happens. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t look at this like a real business and they don’t realize it’s going to take time to build a clientele to have a successful business. The only way to build a clientele is by getting out there and making new friends and networking.

So now that we realize that’s what we have to do to grow a network marketing business the next question is where do we go to find these new friends to network with? Well below I have given you 50 different ways to network and make new friends! One tip I want to give you is remember this is a relationship building business so your first initial contact is not going to be you pitching your business, it’s going to be you introducing yourself and getting to know them better. The next step will be to find a creative way to stay in touch with them! I like to use Facebook to do that but whatever way works for you is great! Another thing I want you to remember is that this business takes time to build because it takes time to grow relationships. The better you can get at establishing a connection with someone, the faster the relationship will grow, which in turn means the faster your business will grow. Plant seeds daily, water those seeds, and wait for the harvest to grow!! Happy networking!

Do You Need to Detox Your Body?

Why We Need to Detox Our Body…

We keep ourselves clean on the outside but how many of us keep ourselves clean on the inside?
Many modern day natural healers believe that over 80% of chronic disease is caused in the colon, eventually leading to colon cancer. That is quite a staggering fact and worrying too.
A periodic detox method cleaning or cleansing program of the internal environment can help you feel refreshed and reduce the risk of potential problems brought on by an accumulation of toxins which can eventually make you quite ill. We are all regularly exposed to pollution from food additives, preservatives, heavy metals, (including drugs given to livestock) pesticide food, and chemicals in household products. This is why detoxification is so important.
The toxins can re-circulate in the body if the eliminatory functions are not working effectively…and fat-soluble toxins can be stored in fatty parts of the body for many years. A toxic environment in the body can result in a lowered immune system, causing excess free radical damage and can provide an ideal habitat for bad bacteria, parasites and ultimately disease. The accumulation of toxins can overwhelm even the strongest body and skin, resulting in some of the health problems:

Acne
Constipation
Allergies
Fatigue
Bad breath
Gastrointestinal disorders
Weight Issues
Skin disorders
Bloating
Headaches
Body odor
Hemorrhoids

It all sounds horrible doesn’t it? What is the answer? There are lots of answers honestly but I use It Works products! They help with removing toxins, help with weight loss and give my body a natural spring clean from it all…and help me really feel the difference! If you want more information in regards to the It Works Detox Program email me at ajockett@yahoo.com.

In addition, many people just don’t drink enough water, eat healthy foods or have a natural diet which is high in fiber, and this can often create irregular and infrequent bowel movements, potentially harming the colon and adding to the toxic load in the body. Eating fruits and vegetables along with drinking a good antioxidant drink will help with your fiber intake, and a green tea drink will also cleanse too.

Whether we want to believe it or not, eventually we all have to face the music and reality!
Whether we want to (like it or not) we regularly, as part of our daily lives, absorb more harmful chemicals and other toxins into our bodies. Even heavy metals don’t escape. The thing is that most of us are not aware of the harmful nature of them. Oblivious that they exist and yet we are surrounded by them in the foods we eat, products we use, unavoidable places we find ourselves in and even our own comfy homes etc. To thrive and survive in our world, YOU personally need to be prepared, plan for it, and have the know-how to get rid of toxic build-up within your own body and system.

Network Marketing is the business of the 21st Century. According to Wikipedia, network marketing is a way of doing business in which a sales force earns a commission not only for sales of products and services they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit and bring into the business, which creates a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple leveraged levels of compensation. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants’ payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public

I have a lot of people ask me if It Works is one of those get rich pyramid schemes and honestly I chuckle every time. I always ask them well isn’t Wal-Mart set up like a pyramid? They have a CEO, Board of Chairman’s, each region has a Regional Vice President, each district has a District Manager and then there are Store Managers, Assistant Managers, Department Managers, and then you have the hourly positions. Each position is paid accordingly but NO one will ever make more than the TOP people.

You see in network marketing I can make more than the TOP people because I’m paid based on my efforts. So NO network marketing is no where near a get rich quick scheme nor is it a pyramid scheme, those are illegal. It’s a business model that allows average, ordinary, everyday people like myself, to invest a small amount of money, start a business, work hard and create a residual income that can be passed on to my kids, grandchildren, and so on.  This is what I posted this morning on Facebook “Everyone at some extent wants to be successful but the problem is they aren’t willing to put in the effort to succeed. Its crazy to me how people will work 40hrs a week, put there heart and soul into building someone else’s dream but quit on their own dream within a couple months. This is a business people, it takes time to grow, it’s not a get rich quick scheme!”  You have to take the time to learn the skills necessary to build a network marketing empire.

When your trying to understand network marketing think of a franchise, like McDonald’s for instance. McDonald’s is one of the largest fast food organizations in the world. They have more than 34,000 restaurants that serves more than 68 million people in 119 countries each day. About 85% of McDonald’s restaurants are owned and operated by independent business owners or contractors. Now if you owned the mother-ship corporation, you not only earn money by selling burgers, fries and shakes from the 15% of the restaurants you personally own and operate but you also earn a tiny percentage on all the sales made by the entire organization including the other 85% you do not own or operate. Meaning you are now earning a LEVERAGED/RESIDUAL income generated by the time, talent and energy put forth by the other business owners on your team.

Now there are a couple differences between a franchise and network marketing business. The 1st difference is the initial startup cost. For a franchise it could cost thousands and thousands of dollars, where network marketing companies usually charge $50-$500 to get your business started. The 2nd difference is the cost to have a building. Most network marketers work out of their home so they don’t have overhead costs, big utility bills, or employees like a franchise would. Thus allowing the average, ordinary, everyday person to start a business and become financially free!

Why I LOVE Network Marketing!

•I get to pick the people I want to work with!

•I can work from home part-time or full time it’s my choice, I pick my hours!

•I have freedom of time to do what I want, when I want!

•I have NO boss telling me what to do!

•I have the opportunity to literally set myself up for financial freedom!

•I am creating a residual income that will be passed on generation to generation.
