Want to close your prospects, Actively Listen to them

8 Oct

So you want to close your prospects and increase your sales in your direct marketing/mlm and recruiting business.

The best advice anyone is going to give you isn’t new.

It isn’t groundbreaking.

Heck, it’s probably older than the dinosaur!

Listen to understand. Period.

Hear what they say, think on it, wait a lil bit more, ask yourself what it means, then maybe, jusssssssssst maybe you reply. 

You see, often times everything you need to know to close the deal, or know to walk away comes out of the other person’s mouth- if, if, YOU are listening.

Listen, don’t just hear, and your sales will increase.

Your recruiting will increase. 

Success across the board – WILL INCREASE.

First you surpass everyone.
Literally. 

Just blitzkrieg these people.

You create a killer product, become a force to be reckoned with.

And then you can sit, take a breath, and relax.

That is what a boss does.

Monday Minute: Don’t be afraid to Succeed 

12 Sep

A lot of people focus on how most young entrepreneurs or new entrepreneurs are afraid to fail. Well we’re going to turn that upside down by discussing how most people are afraid to succeed.

You see it is my belief that in this day and age most people don’t want to succeed. They have conditioned themselves to accept mediocrity as greatness. And this mediocrity has become the new accepted Norm.

Now the willingness to succeed, the hunger, has been removed from the average person.

Simply put the average person is scared to succeed because one success only begets further successes and this in turn creates a new dynamic that they are not ready for. When you are used to settling for less winning is stressful. However, when you take the reins and force life to bend to your will- success becomes the same as breathing.

Why are we afraid to succeed?

Simple. We don’t expect it these days. 

However, I challenge you my readers to find at least one way every week that you will succeed beyond your own expectations. If you cannot find a way I will create a list for you personally.

Finally succeeding is perhaps the greatest thing you can do in your life; besides having children. That is a different form of success.

I personally call it the greatest form of success. 

If you begin to feel doubt look at Olympic athletes who have more than one gold medal. In theory they have nowhere to go but down. Yet they train for 4 year arcs in the hopes of repeating a trillion to one chance of Glory.

Now was that a scary thought or an exciting one?

When you know the answer hit the reply button.

Seriously, fear is your number one enemy.

But have faith, not only in your God, but in YOU!

If you don’t believe you will Conquer, than YOU WON’T.
Period.

Be the greatest you – YOU can Create.
Who are you to question the greatness you are destined for?

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?.

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC: WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM EN-MASS?

May 21, 2013

Folks, I’ve been real blessed.

And I don’t mean what my parents did for me.

The last 4 months I’ve had the privilege of sitting with an amazing group of men and women who want nothing more than to give and or give back,  \You see there are people who never had who  refuse not give back.

There are also individuals who have had and refuse not to give beyond the scope of their existence.  And in a day and time where the average inner city community member is labeled as greedy, selfishly zealous, or just pure ignorant I’ve been blessed to sit and speak with leaders and visionaries who spend all of their time consumed in one mission: giving back.

On April 23rd I was privileged to sit with Javier Saldana of  RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC.  And this brother was the real deal.

RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC is about giving back and job creation.  It is literally that simple.  Now I can break down their mission statement for 8 pages but it boils down to a sincere drive to put people back into the work force.  It doesn’t end there either.  the long term goal is to create a viable workforce with longevity.  not a flash in  the pan, one term measure of growth- but real numbers.  And beyond the numbers are the people.  Jobs have been a lot more scarce since 2007 or so.  And while there is a lot of talk about jobs and helping the average Joe- I don’t see much folks.

So What Can We Do?

We can support Javier Saldana and RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC.

Why?

BH: What does RIGHT THE WRONGS FOUNDATION LLC do?

JS: We provide the skills and tools for employable longevity to those we serve.

BH: Expound on that please.

JS: In the world of business and industry there are jobs.  In fact there is a deep need, about 2 million open spots.  And while we cannot provide the exact training job for job, we can reinforce the basics and lead a multi-generational movement in workplace intelligence and etiquette.

BH: So you have a multi point plan, break that down deeper for my readers please.

JA: Simply put, there are three key facets: Employ-ability, interviews, and etiquette.  These facets, when mastered increase the ability of any individual to rise beyond their daily existence to become pivotal players, leaders, and integral parts of their communities.

BH: Is college the answer?

JA: Not always.  Simply put there are individuals that school simply isn’t meant for.  But they may got to their local McDonald’s and start from the bottom and rise to become a regional vice president or better.    Skill sets are vastly suitable for a large percent of the population, especially when we build them up so their esteem and self-profitability become more than concepts, and rise to be innate traits.

BH: So the main goal then is?

JS Sustainability.  It has never been about getting them a job and walking away.  The goal is to create a fulcrum of pure, sustainable, community based growth. In the end it isn’t jobs- it is a life skills set that leaves the community at large enriched.

BH: So if I hear you right you don’t advocate college over a career plan?

JA: Not at all.  As a species we are vastly diverse.  So to expect the same result from all of the species is redundantly ignorant.  instead we aim to meet the needs of the population as a whole.  From that perspective success becomes synonymous simply with action.

BH: Could we sum up the general flow then as 1st knowing your mindset. And 2nd acting accordingly?

JA:YES.

IS FEAR Killing Your Future?

11 May

IS FEAR Killing Your Future?
It’s a really simple question that a lot of people don’t ask. And it is fear that gags them, preventing that question

Fear is what I call Emotional Cancer. It is acute, pervasive, and far reaching. It will permeate your every thought, action, and emotion if you are not on guard against it.
Fear is simply the belief that what u are afraid of is stronger than what you are capable of. Nothing more.
How do I know?
I’m scared as hell.
Every time I write an article, I approach clients, and when I make music. It never fails. Speaking to an audience kills me. I learned the hard way that my fear had a little dollar amount. It could be marked in an accounting ledger as consecutive losses as I was deeply afraid of recruiting people.
Have you been there? I’d bet many of you have been in my shoes.
Fear of rejection was killing my business.
I actually started blogging out of fear. I was afraid to speak so I figured I’d write.
Cheap cop out I know.
But I did play my strong suit against my weakness so it was kind of a smart idea.
However, I wasn’t fighting the fear.

I have good news though folks-
Fear wins wars as well.
You see when a Lawyer is victorious in court he has fear on his side. When the last seed team triumphs over series kings, it is fear that they conquered.
Fear is a great motivator. My fear of failure could paralyze an elephant. And in the past I’ve let it be my achilles heal. I’m naturally a speaker. I can run my mouth and build a case in my head rapidly and then present it with panache and pride, just not in front of recruits and perspective buyers.
Sounds ridiculous right?
How did I beat this fear- I Spoke.
That’s it.
I wanted to interview the guy who owns the gym I frequent- so I asked.
I wanted an interview with my favorite two lyricists- so I asked.
And I got a yes each and every time- across the board.
Has everyone I asked said yes?
Of course not.
I get a lot of no’s. More than before actually. But I wasn’t getting a single yes by staying silent. It’s called playing the game.
If I was a batter in Major League Baseball- and I refused to swing I might get the occasional walk from the pitcher at the mound. More likely than not I’d just have a 0 batting average and be dropped from the team regardless of cost.
Ted Williams used the press to motivate him. He fed their caustic opinions of him- and then he fed off it.
It gave him power.
It gave him fuel.
And he is a legend now decades after his passing.
Back to that lawyer I mentioned. If he knew every minutiae of the law but never made an opening argument could he win a case?
Nope.
Imagine Thurgood Marshall letting fear speak for him. No. Never.
Good leaders, heck good people simply fight fear and make it their slave.
When you master fear you can conquer the world.

My last point is Christopher Columbus: the Church wanted to kill him, the people doubted him, he was considered a heretic in many circles. Now we could argue about his being a mass murderer if you want- or we could look at the fact that he refused to let fear stop him. If he was wrong he would literally sail off the earth, die, or be executed after years of suffering at sea.
Instead I get a day off every year due to his action (get the hint: do it- act don’t let fear castrate you).
