Entrepreneur Mindset Vs Employee Mindset


Entrepreneur Mindset vs. Employee Mindset

 

“You are never going to reach your dreams…if you can't make that shift.”

 

Tricia Peterson 

 

Today the amazing Tricia Peterson talks to us about the difference between an entrepreneur mindset and an employee mindset. She delves into how to transition from making hobby money into making business money, and it all begins with your mindset. Having a business mindset is more than just working more hours; it starts with changing the way you think. 

 

So, what is the difference between an employee mindset and a business mindset? An employee mindset involves waiting for someone else to tell you what to do. In the network marketing industry, this could be your upline or someone else within your company. 

 

When you have an employee mindset, you never take action on your own because you're waiting for someone to map out each step of the process. You can still be successful. However, this mindset limits your progress because you're waiting for permission from someone else to move forward.

 

“With an employee mindset, you are going to be capped on how much money you can earn.” – Tricia Peterson

 

If you have an entrepreneur mindset, you can say and do what you want. You can direct your business in the direction you want it to go.  Rather than depend on your upline, you create and design a system that helps you achieve your business goals and ambitions. You are willing to rely on what you know and pivot or readjust plans depending on your success.

The sky is the limit with an entrepreneur mindset. If you want to be successful, you can't blame anyone or anything outside of you for your lack of success. It always comes back to where you're at and what you're willing to do. If you can take steps to move forward and understand that what your upline recommends doesn't really matter, you'll be successful either way.

 

Your business all comes down to you how you take control of yourself. So many awesome things can happen when you do. At a young age, societal norms teach you to follow instructions and directions (which isn't all bad). Yet, once you have the opportunity to make your own choices or create a new path, it's easy to flounder because your brain isn't wired to think on its own. Having an entrepreneur mindset is realizing you have abilities or muscles that you can strengthen.

 

Rather than be stuck in a little box, why not think bigger? You can make the income and impact you've always wanted. When you take the wisdom you glean from mentors and others, you can thrive, just tweak them, so they work for you. It takes time, but when you stop and reflect, you can readjust and realign what elements are or aren't working. This shift takes work, and prolonged effort, so don't give up in the hustle.

 

“Who cares if you have a good upline or not? It's all about you and what you can do because it's your business.” – Brooke Elder

 

What's your aim for today? Pick a day where you can reflect and ponder. Think about what things are going well within your business and what things may need an adjustment. Over time, you'll find that your mindset changes. You'll begin to take action and control of your business without waiting for prompts from others. Do this for a month and see how much your business shifts.

How to get back in the groove after a break


How to Get Back in The Groove After a Break

 

“It's ok to take a break sometimes. And every once in a while we need a break.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

 

Today we're talking about how to get your groove back after a break. Since it's summertime, you may be taking a break from your business. Kids home from school, family vacations, and doing all the things can make it challenging to manage your business. This is why taking a break is essential, yet it's also just as crucial to plan for your time away.

 

First, make sure you are both taking and scheduling breaks. I try to plan something once a quarter or every three months, whether it's a vacation where we getaway or a staycation where we stay close to home, it doesn't matter.  

 

Sometimes we do our family's favorite things. Every member gets to pick one of their favorite things, and the whole family has to participate. Usually, it takes two or three days to get through them, but even something this simple rejuvenates me and gives me the much needed time away from my business.

 

“Start making a plan of what it looks like to get back into your business.” – Brooke Elder

 

Breaks are good, but sometimes it's hard to get back into things when you've been gone. This is why preparing for your absence beforehand is important. 

 

Recognize how much time you need to transition back into work. Try not to have big projects planned when you get back. Large projects will make your time away less enjoyable, and the time you return just as stressful.

 

Never “should” on yourself…everything that you do is a could have.

 

Choose what you want to add back into your business when you return.

 

When you empower yourself with choices, it helps you better see the new decisions you need to make. One of the number one reasons people shut down is because they don't feel like they have a choice. If you want to stay in charge of your business, focus on what you want to happen.

 

If you're going to focus on customers, then create a system that will help you focus your attention on them. If you're going to increase your recruits, then find a method that works for you that will allow you to see the results you want.

 

“Boundaries have nothing to do with other people. Boundaries are about you.” – Brooke Elder

 

Set boundaries with yourself. What are you ok or not ok accepting? When you establish boundaries, you can enjoy your time off and still be productive when you get back to work. When you tell yourself how you are going to feel and act, you tell yourself what you are willing to accept and not accept. It can take practice, but with time it becomes second nature, and you will begin to see boundaries working to your advantage.

Be You, everyone else is taken


Be You, Everyone Else is Taken

 

“We're far beyond just 

being told what to do.”

 

Roseanne Dawes

 

 

Today, we're excited to review how to be unique and authentic within your business. Rosanne Dawes is one of our mindset coaches here at Social Tenacity. Today she shares some helpful ways you can practice connecting with your heart by acting on first impressions. In this podcast, we also talk about how you can be the best version of yourself rather than mimic someone else.

 

Who am I? That is a huge question. What makes you special and unique?  To help you understand your mission and purpose, think about a coin. There are two sides to every coin. On the first side of the coin, discovering your divinity and connecting with your higher power is crucial. 

 

The first side also involves understanding that you are much more than just your current existence. The second side of the coin includes your individual purpose within your existence. It encompasses the thing that only you can offer the world. What makes you come alive? What are you passionate about?

 

“Drop down into your heart and just start listening.” – Roseanne Dawes 

 

Pretend that you're in the middle of your heart because this connects you back to your body.  If your heart could speak,  what would it tell you? How would it prompt you to act? As you ponder this question, trust whatever your first thought is. As long as it's a good thought, then it's probably a good concept. Practice dropping into the middle of your heart every day by asking yourself a question. This is step one in the process of learning to trust yourself and to become authentic.

As you build your business,  think about what makes you come alive. Your upline does things that make them feel alive, but that may not always resonate with you. It's essential to review your passions and figure out what really drives you.

 

As you go throughout your day, what things help you come alive? It's a discovery, and that's what is cool about building a business. It's understanding and uncovering who you, as well as unveiling your life purpose.

 

Every experience you have, good or bad,  leads you to your purpose. When you act on your inspirations, you start to learn to trust yourself. With every action, saying yes to the next prompting becomes that much easier.  

 

If you have a good thought, act on it. When you are inspired to do something outside of your comfort zone, realize that the outcome will be far better than if you chose not to act. You may never know why you get individual impressions, but it's essential to trust them, and then great things will happen.

 

“When you act on [inspiration] you have no idea what amazingness is on the other side” – Brooke Elder

 

Will you act on the impressions you receive?  Even if they seem small and weird, it's crucial to respond. As long as the idea is good, just act. You'll be able to move forward faster when you've practiced exercising that muscle daily.

 

Listen to your intuition every morning. What is the one thing you can do today for your family, business, or self? As you repeat this exercise, you'll be amazed at where your life and business will be within a month.

 

“Give yourself grace along the way and keep following those bread crumbs.” – Roseanne Dawes

Why You Need a Funnel


Why You Need a Funnel

 

“With a [funnel] system in place, one, you'll spend less time building your business and two; you'll see better results.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

 

Today we're talking about funnels and why they are important. Many network marketers may not think they need sales funnels or are unsure of what they are, but today we'll show you why they are essential.

 

Imagine a kitchen funnel. The top is wider, and the bottom smaller. Using a funnel approach to narrow down your target audience is how you speak to the right people. This allows you to weed through thousands of leads and find the ideal customer, prospect, or recruit. 

 

For higher efficiency, spending most of your time at the bottom of the funnel increases the potential for customers who are likely to buy from you repeatedly. They are the runners of network marketing and are willing to treat a business like a business. Putting your focus at the bottom of the funnel instead of the top leaves you with potential leads that will build your business up the quickest.

 

“We don't want to spend our time on everyone…we want to funnel them in…so that our likelihood of a “yes” is a lot higher.” 

– Brooke Elder

 

If you've been practicing the “go for no” approach and haven't seen results, it may be an excellent time to start creating and using funnels within your business.  

A proper funnel can benefit you in multiple ways. Wouldn't you rather get a yes from 95% of people in a smaller group, than get a no from 95% of people in a larger group?

 

Going for “no” is not the way to build a business.

 

It's like offering a stick of gum to everyone with the mentality that if they don't want it, that's okay. Yet, when someone says no repeatedly, you begin to doubt your purpose, doubt your product, and doubt yourself. Then, you're more likely to quit before you even get ahead. A sales funnel allows you to alleviate self-doubt and automatically weed out the people who don't meet your target audience's attributes.

 

To understand and reach your target market, you need to identify what your audience needs. What is their end goal? What can you do to help your audience see what they may never have thought of themselves?

 

“What is it that you have to offer that makes your proposition more attractive?” – Brooke Elder

 

How do you create a funnel? First, establish and create a free offering. These could include a PDF, infographic, or download. People who raise their hand and say that they are interested are the ones who will start down the funnel. With each additional step in the pipeline, people who aren't your ideal customer will naturally weed themselves out.  

 

It's essential to include a call to action within every step. What does your ideal customer need to do next? Some examples could include joining your free Facebook group or setting up a coaching call.  Once you're talking to the right people, you can determine if your solution meets their problem. If it does, then offer your product as the solution to their predicament. A funnel with close to five steps is recommended, any more than that could reduce your success. 

“We want to get the people who are perfect for us.” – Brooke Elder

 

Every funnel may look different, and that's normal. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or high tech. With that in mind, start mapping out your pipeline. Don't forget to document each step, as well as address the call to action. If you have questions, check out our Authentic Influencer Facebook group. We'd love to hear from you.

Using Subscriptions to grow your customer base


Using Subscriptions to 

Grow Your Customer Base

 

“Don't overcomplicate it, 

just put it out there.”

 

Debbie Stewart

 

Debbie Stewart is a direct sales consultant for the nationally recognized company, Scentsy, and has created a unique way of growing her business with Social Tenacity's guidance. We helped her unlock her potential to create an amazing personal brand. Now, Debbie has a thriving business and a successful monthly subscription she can stand behind.

 

Before she found Social Tenacity, Debbit felt stuck in the marketing strategies her company's upline recommended. She didn't feel as inspired and wanted something more. She needed to set herself apart from everyone else.  

 

Then, a friend introduced her to one of our podcasts, and she was intrigued by the things we teach. Over the last year, Debbie has grown in some spectacular ways and shares her insight on how she developed her monthly subscription boxes.

 

“When you start, it might be pretty basic,  but as you keep going, you're going to start to figure it out and it's going to get better and better.” – Debbie Stewart

 

If doing a monthly subscription box could work for your business, here are a few tips. 

 

First, have a theme and pick a price point. When you select a price point for your box, think about what you would be willing to pay. Let's face it; if you wouldn't be willing to pay the big bucks for the box, your customers won't either. Debbie settled on $20 and her subscription has been a huge success. 

 

Debbie's brand is more than the product. It's also her personal touches that create joy and happiness. So, every month she chooses a theme for the boxes she sends to each client. She includes her product and little extras that generate excitement and joy. Debbie believes that attention to detail makes all the difference for people.

 

You will find ways of making things work for you in your business.

 

If the typical marketing strategies aren't working for you, there are always different ways to grow your business. There are so many things you can do to become successful. However, it takes effort and willingness to think outside the box, no pun intended.

 

A monthly subscription box is more than the products inside; it's the reorders too. While each box puts the product into customers' hands, it also introduces them to things they may not have otherwise bought themselves. 

 

“Sometimes we get so stuck as network marketers…but there are a hundred and million one-ways to [market your product].”

– Debbie Stewart

 

For example, in July, Debbie was inspired by Katy Perry's song, Firework. She created a box that fit the theme, but that also added purpose. She chose several products that met the theme and also added a personal touch by putting the lyrics to Katy's song with each product. Debbie also uses Pinterest for ideas to create a unique feel that inspires others while also making them happy.

 

To subscribe to Debbie's boxes, you can visit her VIP group on Facebook or find her on other social media platforms by clicking here.

The Secret Sauce to be an Incredible Leader


The Secret Sauce to be an Incredible Leader

 

“If your company doesn't have the tools you need, then build them.”

 

Brandy Shaver

 

Brandy Shaver began her networking marketing career years ago and, at the time, ranked number 13 within her company. Then, life became a little rocky, and shed decided to focus on running her salon instead of pursuing marketing further. Yet, seven years ago, Brandy re-ented the industry with a new perspective and strategy. Now, she successfully manages teams online and teaches the importance of systems and how to leverage them.

 

Every company is different, so it's not like a one or one system size fits all. First, to create a system for each recruit, start with understanding their end goal. Think about what their first steps are or need to be to move their business forward. Getting super specific is the key. You want to remember that recruits are new to the industry, and keeping things simple will allow you to address their questions more effectively and move them forward in their business faster.

 

“If you have to say something more than once, build a video.” 

– Brandy Shaver

 

Videos help establish a firm foundational understanding of the system. Videos are also helpful for calls with each team member because it allows you to have a higher level of conversation. Instead of teaching each recruit one piece at a time, calls become more productive, and you're able to answer specific questions while meeting them where they're at as far as their education level.

 

Start with the basics! Create a video or a resource sheet to help your team be successful. Direct them toward the tools available to them. Otherwise, you will create an unmanageable monster business that you're going to hate.

 

It's essential to invest in your mentorship to become a successful leader. If there are skills you would like to grow or develop more, then seek out others who can teach you.

 

Having a mentor is the most important thing when you're building a business.” They can see elements within your business that you may not be able to. For example, they can see the pothole down the road before you do and can help you avoid potential pitfalls. Mentors won't tell you what to do or how to run your business, but they will guide you, and they will ask you questions that will help your business progress.

 

“Keep learning! Don't sit and stay stagnate because things are more likely to fall apart at that point.” – Brandy Shaver

 

If your upline has what you're looking for, then follow it. However, if you're looking for a little more, seek out a mentor, and find what will work for you and how you can succeed within your company.

 

To learn more about Brandy, you can follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

Finding Success in just 6 Weeks


Finding Success in Just 6 Weeks

 

“It's all about focus…and what will move the needle the most while giving us the time freedom we want.”

 

Brooke Elder

 

 

Welcome back, Authentic Influencers! Today is all about time management, which is one of the best strategies and skills you can learn,  to see results in your business quicker. One way to manage your time more efficiently is by creating a six-week sprint. Many network marketers struggle with managing time, and enacting a six-week sprint is one way to help you be more productive.

 

Why six weeks? I like to set goals in time frames of six weeks because, in 30 days, you usually know if something is working or not. The two extra weeks surpass the one-month threshold. This is helpful, so the last ten days of the month aren't as stressful or crunched for time.

 

“To get out of that [self-destructive] pattern, it's more important that we create habits and systems that will start working for us all the time.” – Brooke Elder

 

How do you create a six-week sprint? Well, start with a goal. What is something that you want to accomplish within the month or 45 days? Write the goal down. Next, establish milestones. Milestones are baby goals that help you achieve your big goal. They should be achievable within one week. Developing benchmarks help you create systems that allow you to hit targets all of the time instead of just at month-end.

 

For a six-month sprint, you will need to select six milestones. Then, each day, write down three things you are going to do to achieve that goal. Use your planner, calendar, or phone. I have an extra fancy planner I use to write down my daily goals and take notes. Use whatever works best for you.

 

Three should be your magic number. If you plan any more than that, your brain may start to feel overwhelmed, and you'll be less likely to achieve success. However, if you end up accomplishing more than three things in a day, that's all just a bonus, and you become an overachiever.

 

Plan out your week ahead of time. I like to time batch, and I batch as much time as I can. This helps me focus on my priorities and accomplish my milestones more effectively. Did you know that the fewer decisions you have to make during the week, the more time you will focus on what you want to get done? You'll be able to maintain excellent decision-making skills throughout the week, rather than come down with a bad case of decision fatigue later on. 

 

Planning your week ahead of time is a crucial aspect of the six-week sprints we do at Social Tenacity. Not only do we examine the upcoming week, but we also look at the previous week and evaluate it. Ask yourself, what went well? What didn't work so well? What could we do better?  When you review the previous week, you are more likely to be that much more successful the following week.

 

“It's ok to change and to pivot…it's something I do every week.” 

-Brooke Elder

 

Final recap:

 

First, set your primary goal, then set 6 milestones. Next, what are your daily action steps? Pick 3, then when the sprint is over, evaluate the sprint as a whole. What things were successful, and what things weren't? Finally, adjust and start again

Grow Your Influence through Podcasting


Grow Your Influence Through Podcasting 

 

“Don't be afraid of the sound of your own voice. That is what you sound like and what you've sounded like your whole life…everybody loves it, so it's ok.” 

 

Kelly Glover

 

Kelly Glover is an Australian native and has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners start or appear on guest podcasts for the last 13 years. Kelly began podcasting in 2007 and now has her own popular syndicated radio. Not only that, but Kelly also helps people use their personal brand and podcasts to grow and further their business.

 

So, why is getting on podcasts so important? Simply put, credibility. While there may be thousands of different podcasts out there, the podcasts unique to your business help build authority and reputation. If you want to live your influence, being involved with podcasts allows you to be an influencer and take action on the things that make you passionate.

 

“It's a linear step, by step, process, that you absolutely can achieve.” – Kelly Glover

 

Pitching is a long-term strategy and is a lot of busywork, but the preparation beforehand is well worth it.  Before you start pitching, you need to review your social media platforms, pinpoint your personal brand, and cement your messaging so you don't confuse listeners. 

 

It's also essential to have a one-sheet finalized, headshots completed, and talking points documented. Every detail and up-work prep will make pitching a podcast that much easier.

 

When you pitch and get booked on podcasts, every step of the way opens the door in front of you and it's essential that you get through that door.

 

There are two elements needed to organize a one-sheet to pitch potential podcasters. You will need an online press kit that includes all the online material readers can consume from home. 

 

Second, you'll need a well-organized one-sheet.  A one-sheet is a snapshot of your personal brand and what you do, all on one page. It should include who you are and what you talk about, as well as be easily consumable. Readers should know everything they need to know about you within 30 seconds, so make sure it's on point!

 

Headshots are a must, and your name should bold and easy to read. It's also helpful to include five examples of questions and talking points you plan on using. This will allow the potential host to know what to expect. Keep your one-sheet inline with your brand and brand colors. It doesn't need to be overly extravagant, but in a nice layout that suits you and your position. 

 

“Practice in private before you go public” – Kelly Glover 

 

Sometimes people get knee-deep into creating their podcast and then realize how much work it is and fail to follow through. Doing a pilot episode to yourself or a small audience will help you determine in starting a podcast is something that will work for you. Generally, podcasts are a weekly commitment; therefore, you are responsible for 52 episodes if you want to maintain listeners. 

 

However, that isn't a requirement! You decide your frequency, especially if it takes up more time than you would like. Monthly or quarterly shows work well, too, just make sure you're consistent. 

“[Starting  or guest appearing on a podcast] Is a way to communicate your expertise, but amplify your message as well.”

-Kelly Glover

 

Once you've been booked on a show, pre-promote it! Highlight a few seconds of the podcast with your audience to get them excited to tune in. Releasing behind the scene footage also helps build anticipation.

 

Later, when the show goes live, you can share it with your audience and followers, and they will know exactly what to expect. Keep in mind that it's essential to be respectful of the host, and when they plan to release the content. Tag them and share their content along with yours, so you both benefit. 

 

Last Tip!

 

If you are going to invest in starting a podcast, find affordable tech. All you need is a microphone and headphones, and most of the time, you can purchase them for $100 or less.

Business Advice from a 3 Time Gold Medalist


Business Advice from a 3 Time Gold Medalist 

 

“We don't always have to be the ones with the most talent, but we can be the ones with the most success.”

 

Leah O'Brien-Amico

 

 

Leah  Amico has traveled all over the world playing softball and is a three-time gold medalist, winning medals for the United States in softball. 

 

Leah started her athletic career back in college when she was recruited out of Southern California to play for the University of Arizona on a softball scholarship. While just 18 and a freshman, Amico helped score the winning run for Arizona to win the championship game. Her next season playing, Leah moved from pitching to playing in the outfield, which was the defining moment in her career. It wasn't something she expected, but rather than call it quits, she embraced the change and made it onto the US Olympic team two years later.

 

“Age doesn't matter…(especially) the expectations other people put on us. We can do whatever our passions, dreams, and goals are, no matter what age we are.” – Leah O'Brien-Amico

 

At 26, Leah was in the best shape of her life and a mom. She then went on to win her second gold medal in Athens, Greece, and at 29 to win her third gold medal. 

 

Since her Olympic experience, she's had multiple opportunities to share her story all over the country.

 

She loves to help high school students understand that passion, perseverance, belief, and hard work can help bring you the things in life you never thought possible.  

 

When Leah changed positions in her second year of college, she embraced the new position rather than dig her heels in and complain. She wanted to be one of the best players out there, so she put in the work and allowed God to show her new opportunities. 

 

When Leah was apart of the Olympic team, she gained success from her teammates' talents and strengths. They all possessed a different skill set, but they all worked together and won the gold medal on behalf of the United States three summer games in a row.

 

Coaches who build you up are a vital ingredient to success. They are the ones who keep you just a little more focused and help you visualize how you are going to achieve your goal. They may not reinvent the wheel, but they can see what you may not see in yourself. Leaders, mentors, and others help you embrace the shift and learn betters ways of accomplishing our end goals.

 

It's essential to be around like-minded people and people who hold you accountable. It's critical to have a support system where people are willing to provide constructive feedback and not always be that “yes” man/woman-type person. When you are apart of a team, you do what's best for everyone's success, and sometimes that means providing/receiving feedback, constructive criticism, and help.

 

” Do it scared. If you have an opportunity to do something, even if it makes you scared or you feel unprepared, just do it.”

– Leah O'Brien-Amico 

Even if you fail first, the lesson you learn in that initial experience will propel you toward understanding what's expected and to making the proper adjustments. Then, you're more likely to crush the next opportunity.  Be willing to fail because even through our failures, you learn a lot, and are shaping yourselves into the best person you can be.

 

“Go for it 100% and leave it all on the table.” – Leah O'Brien-Amico 

 

Being mad and complaining about things doesn't get you anywhere anyway. When you love what you're doing, the road can look different, and it can change, but if you take a positive perspective, you're more likely to achieve success.

 

Remember why you do what you do, even when it's uncomfortable. What is the thing that is driving you to reach for the stars? 

 

The most important thing to remember is to control the controllables. What can you control? What can't you control? You can control your attitude. You can't control other people's responses. You have control of your space and how hard you're able to work to stay confident while being uncomfortable.
