Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday

How did we ever get along from one Christmas to the next without using a computer to shop?

I remember going shopping as a child with my mother.   The sights, the sounds, the wonderful smells and music.   Have we missed something in all the hustle of the internet?  Does shopping online give us the same gratification as it did when we were children?

This year November 2015 retailers took a different approach to the “traditional” black Friday sales and they actually closed their stores, allowing their employees to be a part of their own families celebrations.

To those retailers I applaud you.  REI, Nordstroms, Hobby Lobby and more.  Have the CEO’s of these companies started a new, old trend?

Yes it’s one of the biggest internet shopping days of the year.  And whether you’re at work on your computer surfing the internet, or from your mobile device the fact is your already shopping for somethingor someone to help you build your successful asset.

How can we apply Cyber Monday to being an entrepreneur and networking with other like minded people?   Instead of searching the internet for that one great deal, why not search for other like minded people that maybe in need of someone to help coach them in their business building efforts?   Offer your services to assist them with what they’re lacking .

Are you seeking to learn more about how to become the leader that you want to be?  There are many resources out there in this big cyber world.  How does one know who to go to for help?

Find someone you trust.  That’s it plane and simple.  Your reading tjis right now does it mean that you put your trust in me?  I can’t answer that for you,  you need to be the one to answer that question.

I don’t claim to be an expert in these matters; however I am on a journey just as you are to find the solution to gain followers,  attract others to my main mlm business and as always gain the advantage!

Thanksgiving

Of course everyone is blogging about what they are thankful, or grateful for on Thanksgiving.

We have all been taught that this is the day the Pilgrims and the Indians sat down to give thanks for everything that was produced in the harvest that year. However it makes me wonder were the Indians really that happy to share a meal with the Pilgrams?
If one stops to think about the time back then is this were sharing, caring, gratitude and loving thy neighbor was started? Or before or after the holiday is this were racism truly started in America?

Yes I know what your thinking; “Why on today of all days is she saying that word”? Racism, Hate, Teasing, Uncompassion for our fellow men is this one time where it started in America?

When we don’t understand why or how someone is different from us, then the thoughts of racism are stirring up inside of our minds and it’s up to us if we act upon those thoughts. I am saying all this to make you think. Think about how people treat or treated you when they find out that YOU are an ENTREPRENEUR a NETWORK MARKETER. Were they excited? Did they jump for joy, hug you and say that they have been waiting to hear more from a network marketer ? My guess is probably not.

Entrepreneurs and Network Marketer’s have made this country great!! Yes we are looked down upon by certain groups and people in society. If Steve Jobs had listened to other people’s hateful, rude remarks telling him to “Go Get A Real Job”, would we have Apple Computer’s? What if Alexander Graham Bell stopped trying with all his inventions and just listened to other people about how stupid he was for never giving up? Would we have the telephone today? I’m not sure about the answers to these questions; however I do know that the answer is I AM SO THANKFUL THAT ALL OF THE PREVIOUS INVENTORS, ENTREPRENEUR’S who never quit!! Ignored all the haters and nay sayers to build this country from the ground up!

From the lumber jacks, the blacksmiths, the steele mill workers, iron workers, minors, blue collar worker’s, I say “THANK YOU ” FOR YOU AND MANY OTHERS ARE FROM THE BACKBONE, BARE ROOTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! !

Yes now we have advanced technologies to communicate with other people all over the world. What will happen next?

What if we took EVERYDAY to be thankful for thingsin our lives instead of one day, one month out of the year?

I send blessings of peace, joy, health, wealth and happiness to you all. May God bless you and may GOD continue to bless AMERICA!

That’s It!

That’s it, I’m done with all this “network marketing” junk!

Family, friends, co workers they all let me down. No one believes me anyway so I might as well be done! I’m just going to stay here in my comfortable little world and be miserable along with everyone else I know.

Sound familiar?

Working outside one’s comfort zone is hard. Without the proper support from other’s in network marketing, having a positive mindset and not seeing any results makes it hard to stay in this industry.

Are you aware that the “Network Marketing” industry is responsible for $182,000,000,000.00 in the world?

No one can tell me that this industry doesn’t pay. Does your industry allow you to trade dimes for time? Work when and how hard you want? Does it reward you for achieving certain levels in the company? Gone are the days of bonuses just because you’ve done a great job. Even Christmas bonuses, Christmas parties, oh no I didn’t just say Christmas? Yes I did! Holiday parties is not the way I was raised and I’m not going to conform to the political correctness today’s society.

With being a professional networking marketer we are recognized for achieving certain levels, working hard and appreciation is a given.

Done? No I’m not done I’m just getting started! In the words of Katy Perry, “Your gonna hear me roar, roar, roar”!

Irritated!

Are you as bombarded with bogus inquiries on line about your ‘business opportunity”?

Sometimes I think people are just board on the internet and this is the new; “ring the doorbell and run” prank that we used to play as kids to homeowners.

Sometimes you can tell when there is a fake lead from your auto responder and sometimes you can’t. (Example,  Name: OJ Huxtable, Phone: 888-515-5555, Email wantoj@gmail.com).  Now really is this for real?  I think not.  I wouldn’t even attempt to waste my time or energy to even pursue this as a credible business partner let alone a lead!

Let’s discuss what makes a credible lead?  Name, Phone Number, Email all these can be fake, phony, no good, and so on.  How do you tell if it is credible?

The best advice I can give: 

What about the name.  Does it seem somewhat normal?  (Joe, Jim, Candy, Amanda) I think you get the picture.

What about the phone number?

If you have a list of area codes for the United States that’s not to hard to figure out.  A great site for information is All Area Codes.com  ( All Area Codes. Com ).

What about the email address?

Bogus email addresses are used more then they are less and with identity theft as big as it is;  people are scared to even leave a good email address to contact them at.  Are you protecting your identity?  Do you use a system such as Legal Shield’s Identity Theft Program?  Contact Anita Corrigan at Anita Corrigan Legal Shield.  Or do you use  Life Lock? Life Lock  Of course there are other’s but these are the only two the are recommended by Donald Trump!!  (No politics here but he is a great business man).

Well than what’s the answer?

Be wise and go with your “gut” instincts. The gut never lies!   It’s pretty easy to tell a real serious interested client than someone just playing jokes on you.  Is there a simple solution to the problem?  YES!

Protect Yourself 

  •  Encrypt a current email address:  Another way to protect your email privacy is to use Thunderbird with Enigmail; Mac Mail with GPGTools; Outlook with GPG4Win.  These tools allow you to encrypt a current email address and offer a suite of security enhancements to ensure that your data is being protected. Warning: these tools require some tech-savvy and can be tough to figure out.
  • Use a secure email provider!   There are a number of email providers that have a model for providing top-notch security for free or for a nominal fee.  The following tools provide a secure VPN for all internet browsing, a USB-key necessary email entry, and free email protection for your smartphone (iOS or Android) respectively: UnspyableCountermail, stop spam email andShazzle.
  • Filter your spam (and keep your favorite inbox)  If you are one of the many email users who doesn’t enjoy having a full inbox, especially one chock full of spam, you can create various filters to put particular emails into different inboxes. According to The Online Privacy Blog  The Online Privacy Blog (In our survey, 39% of people say they set up filters in their email to automatically delete and stop spam.This technique is not only helpful for keeping spam out, but also keeping track of important emails (like bills).  Most times, the ability to create filters is located in your email client’s “settings” menu, and the filters can be created based on specific words, addresses, subject lines, groups of people, and many other criteria. This is a nice stop gap solution to stop spam from getting to your inbox. )
  • Unsubscribe  Even if the techniques above seem like too much effort, at the very least, unsubscribe from the emails that simply stuff your inbox.  Most marketing emails that you find are just sent far too frequently will have an option at the bottom saying something like “Unsubscribe” or “Remove Me.”Clicking “Unsubscribe” usually takes you to an external website that lets you unsubscribe from receiving any further email from that particular sender.  Make sure you click the option that completely removes you and doesn’t just limit emails.

Unsubscribing is one of the easiest ways to cut down the amount of spam entering your inbox on a daily basis, and over half of those we surveyed–51%–report unsubscribing to deal with spam.

Irritating as it may be solutions to the problems always exists.

Gain The Advantage!
