I Signed Up My First MLM Recruit.... Now What Do I Do? by David Ledoux

Joke of the Day

Word from Moderator
----------------------------

Here we go with another Digest. It’s nice to have some stable things in your life that
are not effected by the turmoil of the world, isn’t it? The Digest is one such thing for
me. I avoid listening to the news nowadays… terrorists, murders, accidents, politics,
half of Attica is on fire today… ugh! How can you keep a positive outlook and a
tight hold on creativity when you are bombarded with such depression? No, I don’t
advise indifference. I simply believe that I can help the world much more by taking
care of the needs of myself and my family first and by holding on to a good vision of
our future. How about you?

=============NEW Tidbit==========================

Is it enough to love what you do?
========================

I always thought that it’s enough to love what you do and the money will follow.
Isn’t that what so many gurus tell us?
Well, today I took a good look at myself and changed my mind! (It IS a woman’s
prerogative after all!) Here is what my train of thought was: If you love to do
something and you are good at it, more and more people will be asking you to do
that one thing.
As long as you are doing it, you will earn a good income. But what happens when
you can no longer do it? The answer, of course, is… you stop making money!
Now, this is a sneaky question, because I already know the answer to it, but I want to
ask it anyway:

Is it enough to love what you are doing in order to have a good to great lifetime
income, or do you need something more?

I look forward to your opinions and I will reveal my own thoughts on this subject in
the next issue. :)

Re: Do You Seek a Mentor comments
From: Mary Leedy

Yes, I do seek my group of mentors for help. I find their cumulative experience and
knowledge valuable as they have more than I do. I enjoy their encouragement,
positive attitude and family oriented warmth. They put the value on teamwork. Who,
deep down, really wants to do everything by themselves if they don't have to? I've
always been a team player, just never found the same type of people. Now I have a
group of wonderful people are the same way and my life has been enriched by it and
have grown so much that I will never go back to the shy and insecure person I was.

If you can get yourself a mentor, do it! Better yet, ask the universe for one and they
will come to you. Remember that phrase, ask and you shall receive? What a
concept! As for Pride, throw it out the window, it doesn't serve you in the end. :-)

Re: answer to; question of the day
From: Dr Bob Siegman

You asked, Do you seek a mentor and more important, do you follow his/her advice?

No, I do not "seek" one, as I believe in the philosophy that when the student is
ready the teacher will arrive.
In the meantime I accept the whole world as my mentor(S) since I try to learn
something from every person I meet. Now there are several at the top of the list,
people that I have come to highly respect and have high regard of. People such as
Michael Dlouhy, Dave Young, Bev Armstrong, Tom West, Kathy Martin, along with
several others. Each of these people have their own style, flair and what I would call
area of expertise. So it is like getting the best of all worlds. Do not get me wrong, I
am not saying many are better than one. I just believe there is an extremely special
bond of unconditional friendship, trust, respect, and dependability that must exist
within a TRUE single mentor/student relationship.
Do I follow their advice? When they advise me on a personal level yes, though I also
do keep in mind none of them know me on a deep personal level. So though I follow,
it is not blindly, as it would be with a "true" single mentor, one that knew the true
inner me and that which I was best suited for. As I said I have no doubt that the day
will come when we will meet.

Re: Do you seek a mentor?
From: Monique Bizzell

You really need to have a mentor. Ask the highly successful and they will tell you
they were mentored.

You're mentor should have established a network that you can eventually be used to
grow your business.

There are websites on mentoring and finding mentors for just about anything.

One in particular whose name escapes me right now was put up by a successful
dotcommer and brings mentors in for software developers seeking seeding for their
venture.

I'm moving over to the .NET framework because it allows me to do everything I
want for my application, now and in the future, I have a lot of computing power to
access.

I asked Mr Gates if he'll please please please be my mentor, he is or was the manager
for the .NET framework, but alas, my calls and emails were never answered. I
supposed he and his assistants are too busy. Just joking! I had to get a laugh in here.

If you are seeking a mentor, you should check out the mentoring related sites online,
ones from companies you can read up on and learn from their examples on how to
pick a mentor and solicit the potential mentor.

For the coders, I am finding the .NET framework for more standardized and moved
away from the piecing together of php/c/hmtl to develop an XML based client/server
application. SharpDevelop is the best OpenSource editor for this and you can easily
integrate codeXchange into SharpDevelop(#D or #dev or #develop for short) to get
pluggale code snippets easily.

I know there are some that didn't bother to check it out because it's from M$, but it is
worth checking out.

Re: Do you seek a mentor?
From: David

One thing I would like to add to seeking a mentor.
Make sure you do your research on that person. I can tell you from first hand
experience, some people are not as they seem. I followed and went to seminars as
well as many other people did to listen to this person and be mentored. He had the
systems to follow the vision and it was working well. I thought is this is great, people
are joining my downline and I'm going to start making money.

Well yes I did make money but very little!!! At one time I had $2000 in my account
and I never did see that money. This person could not pay us and was always coming
up with new systems for us to use and mentoring us on how to use them. He also
showed us how much he was making with these systems, but has never paid us our
commissions. It is estimated he took 3 million from all the people he was mentoring.

I can not give this person's name, he is still out there doing this to people, but there
is a case against him as we are trying to get our money back. I lost just over $3000 to
this person!!!!!

I could go on and on but I just want to tell all of you, MAKE SURE you do your
research on the person that you want to mentor you. Watch out for the scammers!!

David

MODERATOR: David, if there IS a scammer out there in the mentoring field and
you can back your statements, you would do a great service to this community to
name him/her. Vague remarks can do a lot of damage creating distrust for everyone
in the industry.

Re: do_you_seek_a_mentor?
From: Olagoke Ajibulu-S

Hello,
It is never possible for anyone to go through life without a teacher.
So, it starts from the mother before the father, the immediate early and first
environment and then a formal school. It does appear that it is a requirement from
cradle to the grave. Yes of course, even if I am a mentor to somebody, I still seek one
for myself if only for the love of learning and education generally. Let all the
mentors of this world send me their e-mail account.

Re: Mentor
From: Rose Mcvay

I am new in this program so it takes me a long time to collect what I have to do. I
did not realize that I could seek help to teach me the ropes so to speak.
All I wanted to do was to advertise my site. Instead it seems that I am making new
friends, and forgetting about my advertising.

Re: Asking for Help
From: Monique Bizzell

I think that's one of the reasons online communities are so big for reasons pointed
out.

You can ask questions and get different answers, really good communities, usually
because they are managed daily, will get you the best answers for your questions.

You are pretty anonymous so you ask away without the looking stupid.

TechRepublic is a great community for programmers and other techies, I like how
they are real techie folks their so you get really good answers, the tips and tricks and
brute force fix that techies do, which usually goes undocumented.

The CodeProject.com forums is another great one for programmers from all levels in
all major languages being used today. Search or ask about platforms, resources,
what ever and you'll get good responses.

Re: Website hijacked spyware garbage
From: William Jaroske

Kenny S. wrote

"Judy, your problem is mild in comparison to what our company went through when
our entire professional website was hijacked by these creeps! We had to shut down
the site completely and inform all our customers of what happened. We had no way
to trace the culprits.
I looked up your website in Altavista and did not see the problem you are talking
about. Is it possible that you have spyware in your computer?"

Kenny, it has been becoming a growing problem over time. Spyware is now
identified in Website hijackings and identity theft. Microsoft updated their
AntiSpyware package because of this. You either get software to remove the nasties
or take it to a professional for repair.

Sell Your Products Like Crazy On Your Website, by Dan Brown
===============================================

1. Turn your ad copy into a story or article. Your visitors won't be as hesitant to read
your ad and will become more interested in your product.

2. Give visitors a freebie for filling out your online survey or they usually won't.
Surveys will give your business valuable intelligence for your business

3. Enhance the power of your ad copy benefits by using attention getting words,
highlighting keywords, using color, bolding key phrases, underlining, etc.

4. Give your visitors tons of choices so they don't get the feeling of being controlled.
Offer them a variety of ways to order, contact you, navigate, etc.

5. Put yourself in your visitor’s shoes. Design your site for them, not for yourself.
Create your product around your visitors not because you would buy it.

6. Get free advice from successful online business owners. Participate in business
chat rooms and message boards to chat with them.

7. Use your free bonuses to create an urgency for your visitors to buy. Only offer
them for a limited time with your main product.

8. Offer your customers extra add-on products at the point of purchase. For example,
if they are buying an electronic toy try to sell batteries with it.

9. Make your visitors feel good about themselves by giving them compliments. If
they feel good they will also feel good about buying from your web site.

10. Add multiple profits to your web site. If you're selling business books try to sell
business services, courses and supplies too.

====================GUEST ARTICLE =====================

I Signed Up My First MLM Recruit.... Now What Do I Do? by David Ledoux
========================================================

My goodness, you look famished! Are you on one of those crazy diets or something?
Come on in, let me microwave you some Pizza Pops...let's get some calories in you.
Careful, they're hot!

You sit there and nibble. Let me tell you about the time I signed up my first guy. It
was December 1994. I called my buddy Peter and said, "Hey, what's your visa
number?"

Pete was silent for a minute. "Who is this?" he said, only half jokingly.

"It's me. You and I are getting involved again in multi-level. We're going to get rich.
I'm serious."

That was it. Pretty much. I left out the part of him growling, grinding his teeth,
grilling me on the comp plan, and the like. But since I was in, he was in.

I did a little dance. I call it the "I Got One!" dance. It's a little jig-like. You bounce
on your left leg twice, then on your right leg twice, then spin around and pretend to
spike the football in the end zone, all the while singing loudly, "I got one, I got one!"

So I got my buddy Pete in. Now what?

Here's a little quiz. Pretend you're me. What do you do?

a) Run an ad halfway across the country.

b) buy some dead genealogy lead lists half way across the country.

c) load 5000 emails into your Spaminator 3000.

d) help Peter make a list, help him call the list, and show presentations to his list.

Believe it or not, I picked D. Pete and I showed the plan to his buddy Eric. Eric got
in. Eric and Peter showed the plan to his buddy Fabio. Fabio got in. Peter, Eric and I
showed the plan to a lady named Christine. Christine got in. Eric and I showed the
plan to Mario. Mario threw us out of his house. Then he got in later.

And so it went. Within a year Peter had 1000 people in his downline and a solid,
passive residual income. It's now a decade later and Peter has over 25,000 people in
his downline. It does over $10,000 a day in production. Not bad, eh?

I just signed a new kid named Josh. Josh is 28, hates his job, his wife hates her job,
and they are expecting a baby in about 90 days. Let's take a quiz.

What should I do with Josh?

a) ignore him and hope he figures it out on his own.

b) go join a new mlm deal because mine is 14 years old.

c) load 50,000 emails into a Spaminator Mark II.

d) help Josh make a list, help him call the list, and show presentations to his list.

I picked D again. Josh and I showed the plan to Darnell. He got in. Josh and Darnell
showed it to Duane. Duane is 6 foot 7. He got in. Now I have a bodyguard....want to
bet the leg has 1000 people in it by this time next year?

Oh yeah...I taught Josh the dance too.

How were those Pizza Pops? Stuffed with yumminess? I thought so.

I appreciate you!

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

Skip a day
========

Mr. Johnson was overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet.
He said; “I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this
procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least five
pounds.”
When Mr. Johnson returned, he shocked the doctor by having dropped almost twenty
pounds.
“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor told him. “You did this just by following my
instructions?”
The slimmed down Mr. Johnson nodded. “I’ll tell you, though, I though I was going
to drop dead that third day.”
“From hunger, you mean.”
“No,” replied Mr. Johnson, “from skipping.”
