Abundance Challenges? Frustrated? Need a New Angle?

Are you brand new to MLM business? Looking for a new angle? There are sooo many programs out there that all say the same thing in a different way. Well today’s article is going to surprise you because I’m going to say something different; than what you would expect.

If you are a seasoned veteran of MLM this will surprise you, too because I’m not going to talk about “traditional” methods to grow your MLM business. So if you’ve tried other “programs” I’m guessing they didn’t work or you wouldn’t be here, right?

This is my fourth MLM business venture (adventure). The first three companies had products I was sold on or I wouldn’t have considered “selling” them; the marketing plans were actually pretty decent. One of which I’m still collecting a tiny residual income from (it doesn’t pay the rent, but it’s free money). I just found I couldn’t maintain the high level of sponsoring and training that was required, so I let them slide, my dreams along with them.

I thought my biggest problem was reaching enough people and finding the type who had what it takes to be leaders in the MLM business industry. I was frustrated! So what’s changed? Me! I did some work on me! What I found were “patterns” or “programs” running my life and business. Answer this: how many businesses have you tried? What went wrong? There is always “something” that comes up that “sounds” like a good excuse to move on. But wait, could there be something else going on?

I’ll use some of my business history as an example: the first time I discovered the MLM business industry I was a young mother of three, recently divorced and looking for a way to stay home with the kids. I did pretty darn well considering I claimed to hate selling. But I took another study path and let my MLM business slip through my fingers. Telling the kids we weren’t going to get our dream home after all.

My second MLM business is the one I still get a little check from every month (so the process really does work). The company changed a very strategic part of their compensation plan and I used it as an excuse to stop prospecting.

Then came number three. My day job was a business venture with two partners, whom I thought I knew well. They “cleaned me out” and I lost everything. Went through bankruptcy, moved out of state into a pretty depressed area where no one wanted to hear about what I was selling. They thought “supplements” were something the newspaper added to the sunday paper.

Number four never made it out of the box. The company went belly-up right after I had spent all my savings on inventory. Oh well. Sorry! My new working environment (no longer self-employed) was pretty hostile toward me and I allowed one person in particular to “get to me”. I gave myself a heart attack over it. Then a fire took my home and I lived in a tent in the backyard for four months. This was the second time I had lost everything.

I have downsized my wages from $75 to $300 an hour to $5.15 an hour! But I told myself, all I had to do was put in the time and leave the headaches to someone else. I even had myself convinced for a while. Working for a state government isn’t an easy task and I became so distraught from the financial struggle I became desperate enough to start looking into “self-help” programs.

Most of the programs have the right intention, and tell you how things in your life “should” be… But they don’t tell you how to get there! (Sounds like my old MLM up-line!) the gist of it was: believe in what you are doing strongly enough and it will manifest… Not… There is actually a system that can be followed if you can get someone to teach it to you.

On top of all that, I was told I had type ii diabetes and since I was the only one in my entire bloodline to develop this, I wanted to know why? About a year into my research and struggle to get a handle on the diet, an old friend “shared” a new product with me and of course, it was an MLM business. I signed up to get the product cheaper and had no intention of “selling”. But I had such fantastic results from the product I allowed myself to have high hopes again.

After approaching everyone I know in my new location (not too many as I’m pretty much a “loner” these days), I painfully realized people were avoiding me… Here we go again! So I got on-line and found my mentor… The guy who taught me what I’m sharing with you.

It may not sound like it, but I was always shy and had poor self-esteem. I doubted my abilities and wasn’t sure I was worthy of accumulating wealth. I didn’t trust people anymore, I wanted to be left alone, and decided no one would listen to me anyway. Plus, why make money? The government or someone will just take it!

If you made it this far, hooray for you! Guess you are serious about getting answers! Even though you may be thinking: “are you joking? I want help for my MLM business and to make money, not for my head!”

The self-help shouldn’t be some funky nonsense. Find a program that is backed by hard scientific evidence, fact based testing and phenomenal testimonials! A program designed to let loose your inner millionaire by allowing you to reprogram your subconscious. Hey, we don’t give our permission to be programmed by the tv and movies, but it happens every day. Why not take the “bull by the horns” and get rid of the negative programs and put in positive programs. Believe me the successful MLM businesses are run by folks who are in touch with their “inner winner”!

Granted, I’m supposed to be showing you how to get leads and grow your MLM business to stupendous proportions. And I believe I am. However, what I know won’t do you any service if you just continue to allow your subconscious programs keep you from success (just like I did). Specifically success in your MLM business. At least consider this avenue — a different approach (angle).

3 Business Abundance Lessons From Nature

I’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately, now that it’s nice out. This time, I’m not walking to get from point A to point B and back or to give my dog Gina exercise. I’ve been following the natural impulse I had to get outside. I’ve slowed down, I’ve been present as I walk or sit out in nature.

And today I noticed something powerful as I lay down on a bench to look at the sky. I saw big trees in the distance. And I felt a deep connection to nature in that moment. Along with a powerful realization:

Trees just are. There’s no trying to be better than, more than or different than who they are. A tree knows it’s a tree and doesn’t try to pretend it’s a bird.

In nature there is total acceptance of what is. No pretending, no striving.

Yet in nature there is nothing but endless abundance. Everywhere you look.

Maybe nature has some secrets we can learn from…

For years I’ve always believed that our purpose is to be who we are. And that any filter or mask that aims to please or gain approval is something the Universe will eventually guide you to drop. Because being you is what the world needs.

You have a unique purpose that is only carried out by being exactly who you are.

And just like a tree, its entire potential of who it could become was held within the seed it started out as. To resist allowing the full YOU to be expressed in your life and business is like trying to make a tree become a flower. It just doesn’t work.

The degree to which you compromise who you are to succeed is the degree to which you will feel unsatisfied with the success you create.

If you can even create it. It’s very tiring trying to be anything but who you are. The mask of approval is far too heavy.

I’ve seen 3 ways many people lose themselves in their business, stopping the abundance their true nature has for them:

1. They try to solve all of the problems of their clients

I’ve been seeing this over and over lately. If you have a unique purpose then doing anything for your clients that is not your purpose is simply going to leave you drained and exhausted.

Not to mention, since it’s not your purpose to be all things to all people, you’re forgetting something important:

You really aren’t good at what’s not your purpose

That means two things. One, the results your clients create from working with you aren’t as powerful as they could be. Two, it feels like you’re never quite “enough” no matter how much you give which just leads to feeling deflated.

If you stick with what you KNOW you’re here to do, creating the transformation you know you’re here to create in your clients’ lives, you are in accordance with your nature and you create profound results for your clients.

Know the piece you bring to your clients and let them know what it is. And if they need another piece you can let them know that too.

2. They catch “mentor-itis”

This infection is so sneaky and damaging that my friend Karen Evelyn and I gave it a name.


Mentor-itis is what happens when you try to be something you’re not because a mentor tells you to. Or maybe you just try to “please” the mentor, to be a good student and willingly become “pleasing” instead of you.

I’ve repeatedly had mentor-itis in my business. And had to recover from it each time.

The truth is, only YOU know what you bring to the world. Only YOU know what feels right to you in your business. Only you can say things the way you’re meant to and your ideal clients need to hear.

Yes, I am a huge fan of having a mentor, one that resonates with you. They save you time and help you succeed faster. I believe they are necessary and have had many in the past.

Yet you can’t throw away the YOU in your business because a mentor says you should. You also don’t want to be more than you are or do work for your clients that’s not you because a mentor says it’s a good idea. You will lose motivation and it will be WAY more effort. Success becomes hard because you don’t even really want to do the work.

3. They don’t realize the deeper blocks to allowing their true nature

If just being who you are was easy, I think most people would just do it. They wouldn’t struggle with it.

I am an intuitive, I am a healer. I do some different work in the world. Very different work in the world of business.

Yet where did I start out? As a Mechanical Engineer.

If being me was so easy, I would have just delved into the world of the intuitive right off the bat. But I didn’t. I hid who I really was with all I could. I hid it so well I didn’t even know who I really was inside.

And even when I started to pursue my intuitive gifts and share them through a business I still was trying to hide, playing small and not feeling safe enough to share my gifts in a bigger way.

When I finally began to pinpoint the deeper energetic blocks in my way and healing them using the Intuitive Healing Process, I finally felt safe being me in my business.

I could breathe easier, I could be myself more and my work became more enjoyable. Not only that, I was being me more fully and my sales more than tripled in 5 months.

You are meant to live according to your nature. Your nature is your gift. And uncovering your true nature and operating your business according to your true nature is the most prosperous gift you can give yourself and the world.

A 3rd Party Brain Abundance Review – Real Deal Or Just Hype?

So it seems that there is yet another company launch in the Network Marketing industry. A new company called Brain Abundance has hit the scene and since I have been getting several calls about it, I wanted to post an unbiased review that may help you if you’re looking to join. In the following third party review, I’ll cover the company, the products and the actual business opportunity so you’ll have all the essential details to make an educated decision. Before proceeding, I want to disclose that I am not affiliated with Brain Abundance and I’m not a distributor so you can be sure that you’re getting a truly unbiased review of the company.

Brain Abundance Review – Who Is Brain Abundance?

First things first, if you’re looking to join the company, it’s important that you take a good hard look at the company itself and it’s leaders so you’ll have the confidence to plant your flag and make a long-term commitment. Make no mistake, without making a long-term commitment, you’ll have no chance of building a solid business and creating residual income.

Brain Abundance is a company that sells a dietary supplement that promotes healthy brain function. The company just launched on January 15th, 2014 and uses a network of independent distributors to make sales. The company was founded by Eric Caprarese and Dr. Pejman Behrouzi. Both Caprarese and Behrouzi bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the corporate team. Caprarese has been involved in the home based business arena for over 25 years. He’s an experienced network marketer and has built teams in the past that have done millions of dollars of revenue. Behrouzi is one of the most well respected authorities on brain health. Along with other members of the corporate team, it certainly looks like there is a solid infrastructure in place to support future growth.

The product itself which is called Brain Fuel PLUS promotes brain health and provides benefits like better memory, more focus and mental clarity as well as cognitive function support. It’s 13 main ingredients include ginseng, resveratrol, rhodiola and zinc picolinate. If you’re truly serious about becoming a distributor, I suggest that you take some time to research the product so you feel good promoting it and talking about it.

Brain Abundance Review – How Do You Make Money With Brain Abundance?

The company’s compensation plan provides a couple of ways to get paid. There’s immediate ways to get paid through the Powerline Bonus and Fast Start Commissions. And there are ways to build back-end income though the Binary Commissions and Rank Advancement Bonuses. The compensation plan looks pretty straightforward and it’s pretty easy to understand, which is good. In my experience, compensation plans that are complicated are hard to understand for a reason and I would stay away from them.

Brain Abundance Review – Should You Join?

So, should you join and become a distributor? Only you can answer that question. While the company certainly seems to have solid and credible owners, along with a great product, the real factor determining your success will be your ability to generate leads for your business. Even if you have the best business opportunity on the planet, without having a sufficient amount of high quality leads you’ll have little to no chance of building a business. Why? Because at the end of the day, you need to sponsor reps into your team and get customers in order to build a successful business and make money. With that being said, I suggest you look into what kind of marketing system you can use that will help you get leads for your business. Having a good marketing system, and leveraging Attraction Marketing, can very well allow you to build a very prosperous Brain Abundance business.
