direct selling opportunity
When making up your mind to do something or to go after something you really desire, “Why put a limitation on yourself?” I remember vividly when I decided to be involved in my network marketing opportunity. I set out to learn all that I could and to learn from some of the very best. Following successful networkers, talking to others that were already in the game, and reading motivational material from books and magazines were just a few of the ways that I surrounded myself with positivity to assist me in thinking BIG. In doing so, there was a particular article that passed over my desk that I will forever remember that changed my mindset to look at the big picture. Think Big and Duplicate.

“Prepare to stun the world, Robert! You must THINK BIG! Why would I set out to share this opportunity with 8 folks a week, when in reality I could strive to TEACH 100 people to duplicate exactly as I do? I then help those 100 set out to help just 8 deserving people! What did I do? I changed my mindset from a normal thought process to thinking big because instead of me focusing on 8 people a week, I focus on mentoring 100 and then me and my 100 leaders will now positively impact 800 peoples lives per week!

I will never neglect to remember that article of persuasion. It planted a seed that sprouted into blooming conceivability and activity. With this kind of thinking my business partner, better known as my wife (head honcho, boss, lady in charge), have been able to begin building the very foundation of a thriving home based business that we envision to reach millions using online tools and thousands that we meet face to face.


Why settle for anything less than an impressive future? After all you owe it to yourself. Use your talents and ideas to develop your future, don’t sit back and wait for the future to arrive. Design your life and your future and go out and get it!

Now, in my opinion, here are 3 important necessities when planning for an impressive future:

•Vision. To prepare to stun the world, you should see greatness.

•Courage. Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose

•Thick Skin. If what you are doing is worth it to you, be certain that you will cross naysayers and people doubting you and your vision. This is nothing but NOISE, don’t lose focus! (to all my St. Louis National Success Training people)

The certainty is, when you have a solid enough vision, the courage comes naturally and deals with itself. When you can see, listen to, and feel your vision, then you essentially just need to follow it, even if it may seem absurd to others.

If you are interested and open to learning more about an opportunity that allows you to think big, please submit this form to Work With Robert. No experience necessary as long as you have an entrepreneurship mindset. We will train qualified individuals looking to design their impressive future.

What a blast the last three days were, as my wife and I got together with 17,000 other like minded entrepreneurs at our National Success Training in St. Louis.

So on our travel back yesterday from the cold, rainy weather to the warmer but crisp NC climate...and as I am standing in the security line at the airport wearing my new black "Farewell To Fear, Living The Vi-Life" tee shirt, in the process of arriving to our terminal, I see that I am obtaining a bunch of stares from the folks standing around ME.

Now you've got to imagine this.

All these patrons are going back home and back to LIFE. They are all from the same environment that I am currently in (airport, rain, cold), on a Monday morning, and they do not look all that excited. I could probably count on two hands the number of smiles I seen or received when smiling at others. Let me say this, it became a quick fact that the general smiles I observed, many of them also had on that same black t shirt. As for the others, maybe thoughts of going back to their J-O-B had began to sink in.

And there we are, standing there with me proudly sporting this shirt, smiling because I am pretty energized from the weekend and the motivation handed to us...
In the middle of all this, it dawned on me that I hadn't shaved in 3 days, needed a haircut and was sleep deprived so YES I looked rough and on top of that I was wearing an over-stuffed back pack and holding a bag full of products that everyone was glancing at...items I picked up from the event.

Yeah... I would say I looked completely "different" than the remainder of the cluster.
And I caught more than a couple of folks glancing at my shirt, with their eyes scrolling up and down between reading the shirt and observing ME, and here is the probability of what they all were thinking...

Why Is This Average Ordinary Person So HAPPY?

Which I believed was very amusing and increased the smile on my face even more.

Lets face it, most travel "rules" say you ain't supposed to be happy in an airport on a Monday morning coming from a cold rainy place..

Direct Sales
There are several leadership models and a rapidly expanding industry has cropped up around shaping them. Adapt and Apply! Studies and test have concluded that there are generally four core leadership styles that emerge from these assessments. People generally tend to be a mixture of designs, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.To get the most effective results on a team, it’s necessary to possess a balance of various characteristics and also to induce to an area of appreciating the opposite designs, as well. Seek for your own style in these four varieties.

Conductor. These leaders tend to be direct, with a relentless sense of urgency and specialise in results. Conductors need to win, and sometimes quickly make selections to induce a competitive edge. The hard-charging variety of these leaders drives modification, values new ideas, and isn’t scared of difference in opinions. As a result, conductors are the ones that get things done.

Be careful of: Conductors could also be characterised as troublesome or egotistical. Impatience and also the need to maneuver forward quickly will result in impulsive choices or mistakes. I caution conductors to not expect others to continually work an equivalent pace.

Influencer. If you've got an optimistic, psychological feature, people-oriented person on your team, chances are high that you’ve found an Influencer. These leaders are generally passionate and in tune with others around them. They like serving and motivating others and have a aptitude to try to do this to the best of their ability. These are the "go-getters" that we all look for and strive to share our home business idea with. They know with their motivation and the right opportunity they will most likely succeed and earn money from home.

Be careful of: Influencers can also be too tedious and have trouble staying centered or focused on the goal. The may also be unsystematic and simply led by others. Influencers have to be compelled to use caution to not let their relationships and fears get within the method of creating sensible choices.

Supporter. Steady and composed, supporters tend to be the glue that holds their team together. It’s difficult for them to lose their tempers and they tend to be terribly loyal to those around them. They're patient, reliable and make a sense of calm and stability.

Be careful of: That very same temperament that creates supporters such a stabilising influence also can keep them involved in indecision and complacence. As a result, they dislike confrontation, they'll avoid things wherever it’s inevitable. Risk-aversion and procrastination also can trip up supporters in their leadership roles.

Analyzer. Sensible and analytical with a taste for following the principles, analyzers are those detail-oriented leaders who raise thoughtful concerns and leave no stone unturned to confirm quality and accuracy. Their pace is usually slower than alternative kinds of leaders, however what is asked of them is usually done the first time.

Be careful of: Analyzers will suffer from "analysis palsy," lease their disposition hinder effective decision-making. They'll worry about mistakes and criticism. They need certain data before moving forward. They may be perceived as micro-managing or nit-picky.

Working from home means your the boss and you are responsible for important decisions, so what type of leadership style are you and do you have all of these types in your organization?

Work From Home
Companies and home based businesses that utilize the power of social media are dividing themselves from the competition. Social media is offering us all the ability to get closer to our customers. "How is that?", you ask. It is because it allows entrepreneurs like us that have a successful home based business to see and follow what our customers are saying about our products and services or business opportunity they are affiliated with all in real time the best part is it gives us, as business owners, the ability to respond to any questions or concerns in real time.

When this occurs not only are we responding to our customers but we are also putting it out there for others to see, so if others have the same questions and concerns they get a chance to have a response directly from the ones that are in charge. there was an InSite survey that showed that 26% of American companies do not use social media at all therefore they are not integrating a social media presence in their marketing promotional efforts.

The focus here is not so much about social media as it is about being customer centric. Legitimate entrepreneur opportunities that already integrate social media into the overall marketing efforts have an edge on other home based business opportunities that are lacking in this area. In this industry it is crucial to develop a strong presence in social media for marketing, receiving customer feed back and serving loyal customers.

It is forward focused businesses like this that will build on their current efforts.

This is a HUGE finding for like minded people like myself that offer an opportunity to average people to achieve financial freedom. My company has developed specific facebook training that teaches my business partners how to use social media for prospecting and growing their business. If you are interested in Working With Robert, he is eager to speak to you!
