You are Just Lucky!

"Luck is the by-product of busting your fanny."  ~Don Sutton

Someone in my family actually said to Ken and I when we were making six figures a month, "you just got lucky!" Hmmm...yes and no. I like the quote above because the harder you work, the luckier you get. Yes, we are lucky to know all of you. Yes, we are lucky to have had V3 dropped into our laps. Yes, we are lucky that the V3 product works on over 90% of the people who try it. Yes, we are lucky to have the freedom of being able to work from home. Yes, we are lucky to have a corporate team backing our opportunity with vision for the future. Yes, we are lucky to have a product that addresses more than diet - mood, energy and appetite. And yes, we are lucky to be involved with something we love doing. But luck will only take you so far. If you don't "bust your fanny", as the quote says, your luck will quickly run out.

It's a numbers game. Some will. Some won't. So what. NEXT! It's a sorting game where you look at everyone you are talking to and sampling, then sort them into piles - like laundry. Customers - Associate Consumers - Part-time People - Business Builders - Key Leaders. Four groups that all love the product, but let's be real here (40 years in MLM talking), when you sponsor ten people, 6 will love and consume the product, 2 will be part-timers who sponsor by accident, but will retail lots of V3, and 1 will be a business builder who will turn into a key leader for you. Your goal should be to get ten (10) great business builders. If that takes you five years, that's A-OK! Some of you hustlers will do that faster. Do what, you ask? Sponsor 100 people to get your ten leaders. Know great leader is worth $10,000.00 a month to you. Times that by ten and there you go...six figures a month!

A little advise ... work with those that work. Who is working? Those who are on every Tuesday Biz Briefing call with Prospects, sampling two a day, 3-way calling you every week with new Associates, holding In-Home meetings, are using the 4-step system and are on Saturday morning Success Strategy training's. These are serious people who want what you want and are doing what you are doing. They will succeed, so make it a point to work with them. Keep everyone else in the loop with weekly email blasts, text messaging reminders and touch-base calls once a month. But work with those that work.

The bottom-line. Sample two a day, everyday, talk to more people, write your goals, see yourself successful, then do what you need to do to make that happen.  Good luck!
