I had someone ask me yesterday how I got so many points in the Eagle’s Challenge? Ok, I am going to tell you a few of my secrets…
From the words of Dave and Gina Domangos, “I am taking massive action!” I have been working harder and spending more time every day than I have ever done with my Sendoutcards business. I was calculating the countless hours I spend and WOW! It amounts to a whopping 2 to 4 hours a day of actually building my business. It is far from the full time I thought I was working it but, I am consistent and I am focused during those hours I am working my business. I don’t waist a lot of time “getting ready to get ready”. I take massive action during those precious 2 to 4 hours everyday!
Every Sunday night or early Monday morning I have created a habit of going over my master list. I have noticed I am constantly racking my brain of who I know and I write them down on a 3 x 5 card as soon as a person comes to my mind. I don’t wait to call them either.
Last week I was thinking of an old friend I grow up with in my neighborhood. I have run in to him a few times over the years, forgotten I had his cell number and called him up. I asked him what he was doing. Within in 20 minutes we met and he was signed up. Come to find out, he was looking for something on the side. If I wouldn’t of acted, I may have missed the chance to partner up with him in Sendoutcards and help him get started.
I remember a seminar I went to about 15 years ago with Brian Tracy. He said, “If you move toward success, success moves toward you”. I have found that if I just focus on thinking of people I know, write them down on my list, call them, not worrying about the results just the activity, my mind is opened to new people that have been in the cobwebs of my brain waiting to come out. Success moves towards me as I continually write and rewrite my list of people. But, if I wait to contact them or hesitate, the flow of names seems to stop, almost like success is saying, “I can’t move towards you unless you think, write and take action!”
Another thing I do is have a stack of FastStart CD and guides with plenty of DVDs. I have to admit, I fell like I cheated a bit on Friday. I was at the Sendoutcards office and the new Opportunity and FastStart booklet had just come in and I bought 100 of them before they even got out of the box!
I wish I could take credit for it, but this is SuperDave Smith and Kody Bateman’s brainchild. It is SOOOOO EASY TO USE!
I was in the grocery store Saturday night. I am telling you, as you move toward success, success moves towards you. Yes, I had just written down a neighbors name on a 3 x 5 cards and who I ran into at the store? You got it, my neighbor! So, he asks me what I am doing and I say, “looking for you!” He chuckled and I said, “I am not kidding. I was thinking about you and wrote your name down on this 3 x 5 card.” (as I pulled it out of my pocket) “See there is your name!” He asked, “Why?” (I have learned to take a few of the FastStart guides with me, no matter were I go, even in the store!) I grabbed a guide out of the top of the shopping cart and said, “Open it up to the first page and read the right side.” He did. I asked him what the answer to the 3rd question was. He said, “yes!” I told him to take the booklet and watch the DVD on the inside and call me tonight once you have watched it. I told him I only had a few and needed it back. About an hour later I got a call…
“DeMarr, this is Mark”. I asked, “Did you watch it?” He said, “Yes.” (Before he could say anything else) I said, “Do you have the booklet handy?” He said, “Yes.” I said, “Mark, if you turn to the next page you will see a statement that says there are 3 types of people who join Sendoutcards…will you read that to me.” He did. I then asked, “Which one are you?” He said, “2.” I asked him if he wanted to get started tonight. He told me he didn’t have the money right now, but he would be getting paid in a week. I said, “Great! Let’s get you started with the 5 action steps so you are read to when you get paid. I then had him turn to the FastStart guide and asked him to review the guide and the DVD over the next few days. He said, “I thought you needed this back?” I told him, “Only if you weren’t interested so I could give it to the next person on my list.” He laughed.
Don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t happen all the time. Yesterday, I had two people read the questions on the inside of the guide and handed the guide back and they said it wasn’t for them.
Two things you need to understand…I use the opportunity and FastStart CD and guide religiously and I pass them out everyday!
I hope this helps you out on your journey to success with your Sendoutcards business.
P.S. Excuse the spelling and grammatical error. I usually charge for then, but no charge today. :)
