I wish you a happy holiday season with your loved ones!

Very few of you know that when I first started back in the Network Marketing profession around

7years ago I became a master a cold market prospecting through leads.  The reason you don’t know

this is because for the past 3years of me building ViSalus I have strictly built through people I know

(Warm Market or Luke Warm Market).  Over the last month to 2 months I have ventured back into

cold market as a great time filler that gets you RESULTS.  Some of you say you have ran out of Warm Market

so this is another great way to build your business.  At the bottom of this Some Holiday Season Facts post, I



This coming week from Christmas to New Years is one of the best recruiting weeks of the entire year!

As a little gift to you we have composed a list of the top 7 ways to keep growing your business during the holidays.

Share this list with your team to give them some extra holiday motivation!

#1 Everyone has a New Years resolution to make more money! This makes the next few weeks one of the best times of the year to promote your opportunity.

#2 Holiday events, dinners and visiting family and friends is an excellent time to present your products. Offer free samples or gifts as an easy way to share your business.

#3 During the time between Christmas to New Years we highly recommend you get on the phone and follow up with ALL of your prospects. This includes your leads, warm market, in-active team members, and product customers. More people will be at home to answer your calls than any other time of the year. Again, mark your calendar for Dec. 26 through Dec. 30 as the best time of the year to get on the phone.

#4 The holiday season is the slowest time of the year for sales. We typically share leads 2-3 times(never to people in the same business as you). Because our sales are slower most leads will never be shared, meaning they are exclusive leads!

#5 You probably know that when you dial leads they often say they are getting too many phone calls. During the holiday season more businesses are closed and marketers are simply not following up. Bottom line: there is less competition during the holiday season.

#6 The network marketing industry always picks up in the New Year. Use this valuable time to prepare for the increase in business that is coming your way! Now is the time to catch up on any extra training you need to bring your business to the next level.

#7 2013 is coming to an end, did you reach all of your goals? With all of these factors in your favor it is definitely not too late! Finish 2013 as a prosperous year!

The habits of highly successful people allow them to consistently perform behaviors that breed success. Everything from eating well to responsible spending to task completion and beyond requires habits that make such behaviors part of our daily life. Michael Jordan spent his off seasons taking hundreds of jump shots a day. Cy Young award-winning Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay routinely does a 90-minute workout before practices. The young Venus and Serena Williams would wake up at 6:00 am to hit tennis balls before school. Highly successful people have learned to develop good habits, and it takes discipline, courage and hard work on a daily basis to keep those habits in place. It makes perfect sense to adopt habits that will facilitate success, yet, why are some so difficult to adopt?

Most people believe that habits are formed by completing a task for 21 days in a row. Twenty-one days of task completion, then voila, a habit is formed. Unfortunately, this could not be further from the truth. The 21-day myth began as a misinterpretation of Dr. Maxwell Maltz’s work on self-image. Maltz didnot find that 21 days of task completion forms a habit. People wanted it to be true so much so, however, that the idea began to grow in popularity.

Tom Bartow, who successfully started advanced training for Edward Jones and has since become a highly sought after business coach, developed the following model of what habit formation really looks like:

The 3 phases of habit formation:


This phase of habit formation is characterized by the feeling of “this is easy.” As all married people will tell you, at some point even the greatest honeymoon must end. The honeymoon phase is usually the result of something inspiring. For example, a person attends a highly motivational conference, and for the first few days after the conference the individual is making positive changes in his or her life.


Inspiration fades and reality sets in. A person finds himself struggling with the positive habit completion and old habits seem to be right around the corner. The key to moving to the third phase of habit formation is to win 2 or 3 “fight thru’s.” This is critical. To win the fight thru, use the following techniques:

  1. RECOGNIZE: Recognition is essential for winning the fight thru. When you have entered the fight through, simply say to yourself, “I have entered the fight thru, and I need to win a few to move past this.” Winning each fight thru will make it easier to win the next. Conversely, when you choose to lose a fight thru, you make it easier to lose the next one.
  2. ASK 2 QUESTIONS: “How will I feel if I do this?” and“How will I feel if I don’t do this?” Bring EMOTION into the equation. Let yourself feel the positive in winning the fight thru and the negative in losing.
  3. LIFE PROJECTION: If the above 2 techniques haven’t moved you to action, then imagine in great detail how your life will be in 5 years if you do not begin making changes. Be totally honest with yourself, and allow yourself to feel what life will be like if the changes are not made.


Entering second nature is often described by feelings of “getting in the groove.” Once in second nature, the following are 3 common interruptions that will send a person back to the fight thru:

  1. THE DISCOURAGEMENT MONSTER: An individual allows negative results discourage him or her into thinking, “This isn’t working, and there is nothing I can do.”
  2. DISRUPTIONS: An individual experiences significant change to his or her current pattern (e.g., vacations, holidays, illness, weekends).
  3. SEDUCTION OF SUCCESS: An individual begins to focus on positive results and begins to think, “I’m the special one. I have finally figured out how to have great results with not so great process.”

If a person experiences an interruption that sends him or her back to the fight thru, winning 2 or 3 fight thru’s will bring him or her back to second nature.

Most people want positive habits to be as easy as brushing their teeth. HELLO…LET’S BE ADULTS HERE…being great isn’t easy. In fact greatness requires sacrifice. It requires doing things that others won’t or can’t do. GREAT HABITS ARE FORMED DAILY. Truth be told, good habits require consistent commitment. Highly successful people have learned to develop good habits. Make the commitment to make it past the fight thru, no matter how many times you go back to it, to reach new levels of success.

My friends, my success and what you didn’t see on my journey, I spent 6 to 7 years in the school of entrepreneurs. Spending countless hours working on changing my mindset from amateur to professional. Years of presents under the Christmas Tree for my kids that weren’t from me. Struggle upon struggle making little to nothing per month. It took work to get where I’m at and a lot of it…IT WAS AND STILL IS WORTH IT!


  1. Kill your Ego 
  2. Stay Humble, Teachable and Coachable
  3. You can only lead as well as you follow.
  5. my favorite number and most important step in it all THANK JESUS GIVE GOD THE GLORY AND HE’LL GIVE YOU THE STORY!!

10,000 HOUR RULE it takes that amount of time to become a master. If one spends an average of 40 hours a week working on a chosen pursuit, that’s at least 2,000 hours a year. So it will take about five years to become a leader in the field, but why not take action, don’t be a jack of all trades and master of none. MASTERS CREATE SIGNIFICANCE IN OTHERS LIVES.  You are going to spend the 10,000 hours doing something so why not focus on mastering something that will lead to success vs failure.  Example some will spend 10,000 hours watching a TV show others will spend 10,000 hours listening to success audios, one will lead down a mundane path of just existing one will lead down a path of designing your life.  YOUR CHOICE.


P.S.  I highly recommend you go to http://TheCompoundEffect.com by Darren Hardy get that book or audios believe when I say this one move on your part can and will change your life forever.  Sincerely, I really hope you do take this last part seriously, in fact I really pray that you take full advantage of this information.
