Hot Networking – The National Business Experts!!!

TNBE

Where Networking Gets Hot!

I interviewed with Gia Heller and her networking group, at that time known as Arizona Women (AWN) & Arizona Men (AMN) Networking, more than 16 months ago.  I’ve watched it blossom in to something that is absolutely the best of the best; not just in Arizona, but quickly evolving in to The National Business Experts (TNBE) with groups starting in several states, rapidly becoming a nationwide force.

As exciting as that is, we are now helping women & men all over the world starting with “Empowering the Women of Pakistan” to stand and be counted among the independent business people of the world.  When a business woman in Pakistan looks on the Internet and finds Gia Heller and The National Business Experts, you know you’ve put your kite in to the right wind!

There are so many networking groups to choose from in every city.  We all need the feeling of connection and validation that comes from long-term real world relationships found only in being a part of something bigger than ourselves.

TNBE is the catalyst that has allowed those of us who are serious about our passions, like Becky Feola owner ofAssisted Living Advantage who helps people transition in to an assisted care home, Cynthia Knight, the East Phoenix Valley realty expert for “first time home buyers” and Christina Wagner, Marketing Director for KFNX 1100 Newstalk Radio , grow.

That is just a small sample of the varied group members & businesses that have learned how to shine through social media, like FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn under the careful tutelage of Gia & her social media team of experts Social Media Masters, including Heather Dopson & Patti Knoles.  It is all a part of making yourself over from a small business, to one that people seek out and follow on a daily basis.

One of our newest members, Kimberley & Brett Noe of AngryBadger Studios w/Brett Noe Productions, researched all the networking options in the Phoenix area and landed with Gia & TNBE.  Listening to her and following all the instructions she gave them, they have been able to gain 35 new customers in less than 45 days.  That is absolutely incredible for a video/film company.  But they did listen – they did learn – they did grow.

You owe it to yourself & your business to check out at The National Business Experts!

New Interesting Job Opportunity!

This is a New & Interesting Job Opportunity for anyone who is looking to earn between $400.00 – $5000.00 + each month from home!

We are NOT an MLM, or a Home-Party company, or a company where you have to buy huge amounts of inventory, a Get-Rich-Quick scheme/scam (if that’s what you’re looking for, we’re probably not the right company for you – there I said it)…

Now that I told you what we are NOT – I’d like to tell you a little bit about what we are!

We are a 25-year-old, debt-free, health & wellness company providing more than 350 products in health & wellness that people use literally every day of the year. We were green 25 years ago when “green” was just a color!  If you know 10 people who clean their homes/apartments, take showers, wash their clothes, take vitamins/supplements, use some kind of skin care system, buys over-the-counter medicines – we are FOR you!

We love & value our customers, who 95% of the time, month after month, purchase our products online or by phone! We do this because it really is about helping the little-guy (95% retention rate)…& the money earned from those monthly sales goes back in to the local economy through the incredible residual income that is secured for anyone wanting a 2nd or extra stream of income.

Today’s baby-boomers can not afford to retire now, and 1 out of 4 says they’ll never be able to afford to retire.  That’s crazy – It’s insane that working 20-30-40 years for the same company – or a myriad of jobs does not give us a secure financial future. When I was released from my job of 23 years, 6 weeks ago, I knew I had to get down to the brass tacks and take the company that I had played with for almost 15 months, earning a few $100 a month, was the future I saw for myself and that I needed to review what I had done in the past and that by being consistent & persistent, I too could have the life I wanted without being chained to a desk in a company that did not care about me!

In a Time Magazine article in an acknowledgement of reality, 40 percent said they plan to work “until I drop.” & there is another poll that indicates that

44% of Americans born between 1946 and 1965 are not confident that they’ll have enough money to live comfortably in retirement, according to a new Associated Press-LifeGoesStrong.com poll. More than half (57%) say they lost money during the recent economic downturn and many who were affected (42%) say that’s why they’re delaying their retirement.

Economic anxiety has certainly taken its toll on us. Pensions, social security, and individual savings plans like 401k accounts aren’t secure enough to float the average midlifer’s retirement boat. The recession and its aftermath have not only tarnished our anticipation of the Golden Years but in many cases eliminated the option.

There is an answer and it’s not a “get-rich-quick” scheme – In fact Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, has called our company the Get-Out-Of-Debt company with real-time solutions – That’s what I call an impressive reference!

Green, Greener, Toxins, Carcinogens – And this means WHAT?

Well, what it means is that all of those things we’ve been taught are “good” for us – is bunk!  We’re poisoning our bodies, our planet, and our families with the lies that the major manufacturers and advertisers have told us for decades.  Soap Operas were called that because advertisers had to wrap something around their advertisements – Some of the young people who read this will go “Yea, right!”…

Left side Jar: Tide 2X, Right side Jar: Melapower 6X

It’s true and those of my generation who are suffering the effects of these toxins we’ve brought in to our homes will attest that what I’m saying is true!

I found this funny in my quick research.

Tide doesn’t have any real difference from the others other than fragrance. All laundry detergents are mostly water, with surfactants (which basically lower surface tension on clothes to allow molecules to release), usually some enzymes which are targeted at specific common “dirty” material, and sometimes fabric softener.

For exact ingredients go to “Tide Laundry Detergent MSDS” . All products on the market are required to publish Material Data Safety Sheets.

& surfactants in detergents help remove organic compounds from a substance by making them dissolve more readily in the water.ter in which the substance is washed. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/surfactants)

Surfactants are largely made from the waste bi-products of the petroleum industry. Some time ago, scientists managed to combine propylene and benzene, producing sulphuric acid and then neutralise it by adding sodium hydroxide. The result was a product rather like natural soap and suddenly marketers were able to develop a new commercial must-have consumer line of detergents.

I actually found a blog posting that has great information about the levels of cancer-causing agents and hormone changing chemicals that are in our every  day products. http://www.pollutionissues.co.uk/additives-soaps-surfactants.html – The author ends with a Call To Action – We must start now to break the cycle we have been trained to believe was the only way to go.

This isn’t a joke and honestly there is nothing funny about it – although I truly wish there was!  Then writing this would be easy not having to search out the truth among all the ads, blogs, and websites that constantly send you back to the pollution/cancer-causing manufacturers. It’s amazing and sad…

My call to action is to ask that you check out http://www.distinctinspirations.awugreen.com – come – find out what I’m about and let me know how I can help you! – The password to the guest area is AdvancingWithUs – I look forward to being of service to you!  I’m here to help!

When Someone Is Negative About Your Company…

How do you handle it when you’re standing there in front of someone who has a negative attitude about your company? You’ve done nothing but be supportive of this other person’s company and expect a little respect and open ears to hear what you have to say.

Do you run for cover? – Do you stand there and say OK – it’s not for you right now? – Do you get defensive about what you think is the greatest thing since sliced bread? – Do you …???

Yesterday I found myself doing all 3 of my responses above. I also wanted to figure out how to dig a hole into the pavement and just cover myself up!  When you try the 30 second elevator speech with someone who is not willing to listen or actually won’t permit you to sit and do a legitimate presentation, are you doing them a disservice by even trying to talk to them at that moment?

It’s so important to find a way to bring value to that person – But, how do you handle it when you really don’t know what that person values? No matter how well you think you know them. You think they care for people, but it still always comes down to time & money and what they want to accomplish.

So, we’re all in the same boat together – we want to be of value to each other. We want to give quality information about our own passions and loves and we have to see that it really may be “not right now” for people when you’re introducing them to new concepts and ideas.

Take the time to build relationships – we are back to the “who you know” mentality of the “good-ol-boys” (gals) groups!  Learn how what you have is of value to someone else and always realize that it takes real face-time (and not 100% Facebook) to build those relationships.

Maybe, if you’re the sole proprietor of your own business, your new office is at a Starbucks and not at your laptop in your den/office!  Get out – Get to know people – Experience what is important to people and then show them how you can be of value to them and their goals.  We all have goals…so – when can we meet for coffee?

Good Monday Morning!

Happy Monday Morning to everyone! I am so excited about this new phase of my life. I am so excited about now having the time to help enhance the lives of people I touch by helping them reach their goals.

It’s the mission statement for Melaleuca, the Health & Wellness company and one that I embrace completely and totally.

There are so many people today who need to bridge the gap from paycheck to paycheck – from house closing to house closing – from car sale to car sale – and moms who want to stay home and yet help the family budget! I have partnered with a company that can help bridge all those gaps & goals – I want to help you! and share with you! how with this specialized U.S. manufacturer of almost 400 consumable products, we can reach out and help those you know to do the same!

I see “Buy American” all the time – with my company – that statement says it all. We have the science, the manufacturing, the shipping & the customer service (more than 3400+ people) all working here in the U.S. to bring the best, safest, greenest (yes – green) products for your health & home!

Social Media Is Here To Stay – Are You?

Wordle Cloud of the Internet Marketing Blog - ...

Everything we do today in the Social Media world is here literally forever…It’s the in-thing to do for every age; old,  young, and the in-betweeners!  There is the blog, the Facebook, the LinkedIn, the Twitter and every one of them goes to every person with a computer and a net connection.  Will what you say today have content and context tomorrow?

What we feel today – will we feel the same tomorrow? – Is the anger you feel today going to be the same anger you feel tomorrow?  We must remember that the person we yell at in print today is the same person you may want as a customer, a friend, a connection tomorrow.

How do we control what we say?  By thinking two and sometimes three times before we hit send – it is the same with Social Media that we have grown up with in the world of E-mail.  Think and think again.  We can’t take back what we’ve said.  We all demand more and more of our “world” and those in it…

Letter to self…What is your “Why”? What is your “Comfort Zone”?

We have a “why” we get up and out of bed each morning and go to work…whether it is:

  • We love those around us.
  • We want the best for those who depend on us.
  • We love what we do.
  • We want better for those around us.
  • We long to be independent of the restrictions placed on us by others. (Why or Comfort Zone?)
  • We love to be profitable & prosperous.
  • o Not for ourselves – but for others.
  • o To have that we might give more.
  • o To be able to enjoy the things God has given us.

These are all just a small piece of the why’s we have in our lives that define who we are and what we do each and every day.

Tell me your why! I really and truly want to know! I want to see beyond my limited vision to the possibilities that lie just beyond our comfort zone.

Do you have a “comfort zone”? – What is your fear of leaving and stretching beyond it? – I know what mine is – It’s the fear of getting up each morning without an 8-5 job to go to – no matter the cost!

I just read a quote on a friend’s Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/frost.energy – it said, “If you don’t like what you have…quit doing what you did”. Gee whiz that rang so true for me!

I look forward to really hearing from you on this…It’s important and vital and so far beyond where we all are today! I know that from each other we gain insight, we gain strength, we gain power, we gain friendship, we gain true knowledge, we gain support, we gain more – to be more than we are today – to be all we can be to be all God has called us to be!

We are a very strong people – with tools and resources we didn’t have even 10 years ago – we can reach out and touch 100’s of 1000’s of people with just a few clicks of the mouse. Don’t be a person who lets others dictate what is important in your life…

You have a “Why”. – – – – You have a “Comfort Zone”. – – – Stretch, Reach, See the Possibilities…
