Last night at dinner my kids were talking about all the vacations they’ve been on and they were recalling memories and laughing. I couldn’t help but think if I didn’t work from home we would never have had the freedom or the money to travel so dang much. We are going to Williamsburg VA this Spring in about 5 weeks for a week. We paid 219 dollars for a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo. I’ve never seen anyone on their deathbed wishing they made more money. But I’ve known a lot of people that later in life wished they had done more. Here are some of our memories.
Here’s at Cruise we got to stay in the Owner’s Suite! Kids had a blast.
This was another trip that was awesome. We stayed a month down in Orlando.
Talk about re-watching and smiling. It’s rainy and miserable out today. But the memories we create are always like a ray of sunshine!
Here is a recorded travel training call of trips others were able to use their Coastal Travel Package for. Memories, Memories and Memories!
Let’s not take our vacations and memories for granted. It’s the primary reason we live life? Enjoying the time with our loved ones and friends!
#TravelTuesday Have FUN!
One of the topics that’s often discussed here at the 6 Figure Income club, is always overcoming. When a normal person looks in it can often be perceived like success is so dang hard. Something is always trying to stop you in life, maybe it’s not worth it. A true entrepreneurs knows 3 things. First It’s always worth it and second we have to ALWAYS overcome some challenge or we have just overcome something and we are inspiring someone else to do the same.
Let’s talk about being worth it for a moment. Look at people like Steve Jobs, he was fired from the company he started and took to a 2 billon dollar company at 30 years old. Over coming that obstacle is what made him who he became. My last post I wrote about Steve Harvey, Steve Harvey today is one of the funniest TV host ever. But through the eighties he was homeless off and on several times living out of his truck between comedy gigs. If Steve Harvey gave up then what? Dani Johnson, was homeless on the beach in Hawaii. That obstacle inspired her to to start a business and become a millionaire in 2 years. Barbara Corcorhan, was a woman and wanted to start a career in real estate in New York where it was a man’s game. Because of that obstacle and overcoming it she turned 1,000 dollar loan into 100 million dollars.
Success isn’t complicated but it’s never going to be easy. How many people had a ton of ideas of what they wanted life to be like when they were 18 or 19. Let me ask you, what did you want to do when you were 18? What did you plan for your life to look like back then? Who were you going to marry? What were your kids going to be like? What kind of house were you going to live in? What trips and experiences were you going to have? Why did you let life stop you from doing those things? Your time could come when you are in your 20’s like it did for Dani Johnson, or 30’s like it did for Steve Jobs or even your 40’s or 50’s like it did for Steve Harvey. What if Steve Harvey stopped pursuing comedy for a “stable” job? You will have to face your challenges at some point, you either look for the easiest way around it or you take it head on and go through it!
Finally we are suppose to over come a challenge and then share that testimony with others to inspire them. I remember before I started plugging into Dani Johnson’s training. I started a small business from my home over the internet. I invested money I didn’t have, had loans I couldn’t afford to pay and was failing. I was a military dad 292,000 dollars in debt and needed to find a way to make this internet business work so I could help my family. I knew I needed training. After going to First Steps to Success through Dani’s training, I had my first profitable month 13,000 dollars. I made 104,000 dollars my first year and left my military career behind after 8 years. In 5 years became debt free and have been working from home every since.
I think every person who has had success is attempting to share that success and if you listen they are even trying to tell you how they did it. From Steve Harvey, to Dani Johnson and even me just sharing my experiences. Too often people can come up with all kinds of things that are stopping them from moving forward. Sometimes you need just one reason to take action and overcome.
To Your Success,
Steve Harvey is more than just the host of “Little Big Shots”, he has a back ground very similar to Dani Johnson. He was homeless for several years off and on attempting to make it in stand up comedy. Today he’s worth over 100 million dollars, but he attributes his success to his concept called “Jump”.
Steve Harvey is often seen making people laugh like on his newest show “Little Big Shots”. But he’s confident in one reason he’s succeeded, and I think it’s a similar reason as Dani Johnson and I think they both believe their faith has brought them to their success. But like Dani, Steve believes that it takes specific actions to have success. In this video he talks about his concept “Jump” and what the outcome with our life without jumping.
He makes a very valid point. IF you don’t do anything you can’t possibly improve your situation. Your stress, your frustration, the cycle of living pay check to pay check will never improve. If you stay where you are at, what happens as you get older? Can you still do what you do now 10 20 or 30 years from now? Will you be happy and satisfied never having any kind of financial security?
Listen to some POWERFUL wisdom in less than 180 seconds. Steve Harvey is full of a whole lot more than just funny jokes.
Success is simple you just have to JUMP!
P.S. Special congrats to Erica Clayton, Dan Fattor, Sherry Hussey, John Barnes and Yvonne Marie Hill. It’s a privilege and an honor to get to work with you one on one. Congrats for making the jump!.
Marcus Lemonis, started out in life struggling born in the chaos of civil war and invasions in Lebanon in 1973. He was adopted by an American family in Miami FL and has a degree in political science and criminology. He failed as a politician when he ran for the Florida house of representatives in 1996. Then he refocused his career on business. Today he is currently the chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises and the star of The Profit, a CNBC reality show about saving small businesses. Marcus believes his companies succeed because of his 3 P’s
If you watch Marcus Lemonis on his show The Profit you will hear him often talk about how important the People of a business is. It’s the people that make the product, use the processes and believe in what they need to do to be successful. He often says his goals is to save a job from someone deserves it, when they are giving there all. Do you focus on people in your job or career? There could be a reason he’s worth 10’s of millions of dollars.
Marcus often talks about the Product, is it of good quality? Does the market want it? Is there a need for it? People always buy a product they want and a product that makes them feel good. This is one of the single biggest reasons I’ve been working in the travel industry for years. This is also probably one of the reasons Marcus has found success in the RV/Camping industry. It’s a total luxury, people don’t need it but they want it! Does your product provide a value that people absolutely want. Who doesn’t like to vacation and travel?
Finally Marcus’s third “P” is Process. Every business should have a process that can be duplicated very easily and quickly. It’s one of the things that allows you to scale according to him. Dani Johnson in her training has always talked about the process allows duplication. This is one of the reasons I’ve used Dani Johnson’s techniques and scripts when it comes to working from home. Everything has to be laid out and simple so someone else can follow it. This is the single biggest reason personally I just want to master showing how to duplicate what Dani’s processes with my brand new people.
Following Marcus’s advice in the 3 P’s of People, Product and Process, if you work with amazing people and you know they are awesome deep down inside. If you have a product that is an amazing value and that people want with a process that is simple to scale then you are well on your way! Congrats!
See You There,
How does a woman turn $1,000 loan into a 66 million dollar business? Most people who have heard of Barbara know her from the show Shark Tank described as a real estate mogul. Wikipedia describes her like this, “an American businesswoman, investor, speaker, consultant, syndicated columnist, author, and television personality. As a television personality, she is a "Shark" investor on ABC’s Shark Tank”.
It’s pretty obvious when you spend a small amount of time studying her success she gives us a lesson of who we should learn from, work with and partner up with in life. Barbara believes in 3 things, using what you’ve got to your advantage (based off of her first book), hard work and caring about people.
Let’s look at the first two first, the title of Barbara’s first book says it all. What do you have right in front of you that you can take advantage of. What assets, friendships, connections, knowledge and experience can you pull from. Most people are waiting for life to happen to them versus them happening to life. Barbara has proven with hard work and very little resources she started with 1,000 dollars 40+ years ago you can succeed. Are you willing to stop complaining about what you don’t have and go to work and start using what you do have?
Finally Barbara Corcoran, has said numerous times on Shark Tank, she invest in people. People are the primary component of the business. Dani Johnson always says, “The more you know about people the more money you will make.” Barbara has proven time and time again she has a knack for finding good people. Then she goes to the ends of the earth to help them. There is a reason so many of the people she’s invested in have done so well on Shark Tank. These people had already put skin in the game, they had been working hard and had been using their blood sweat and tears and were still struggling. She can recognize their passion to not struggle and be their own boss while succeeding in business.
Barbara shows you and I how to have success with people. Find people who are passionate, driven and doing something. Then partner with them and be willing to work just as hard!
To Your Success,
According to marketwatch.com 62% of Americans have less than 1,000 dollars saved and are not prepared for the unexpected. What would you do if you had an emergency, like your child had to go to an emergency room? Or you hit a pot hole and blew out a tire on your car? Heaven forbid, what if you lost your job or only source of income. Today the average American is looking work for one reason or another every 5 years. But when most Americans have no savings and a single income they some how feel like nothing would ever happen to them? Do you feel that way? What if someone hit you on the way to work tomorrow and you had a minor injury and couldn’t work? What would you do?
Do you have a plan? How would you provide for your family? How would you provide for your kids? Would you be able to buy groceries? Most people say they would “cut” their expenses or borrow it from someone else. So if you can’t afford to save where would you cut your expenses? If 62% don’t have any money really saved who would you borrow it from? If you put it on a credit card how do you pay the bill off? Would you begin a spiral that could end up with you losing your car, your home and everything you own?
The truth is the model of how most of us get employed is completely broken. Go to school get a degree and you are suppose to have a steady well paying job. But the proof is with student loan debt as high as it’s ever been and most people not paying it off until their 30’s or 40’s you have to have a different plan for real security. Its up to YOU TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. Apparently 62% are blind to the reality they can do more.
You can get a second income coming into your home. You can start a side business working from home. With a second income you can save more than you ever have, you can pay off all your debt and take amazing vacations. Imagine if you had an extra 10 to 15,000 dollars a year. What could you do with that? What if you worked your way up to making 50 or 100 grand a year? You could save for retirement, pay for your kids college and not have to worry or stress about money ever again. You can live a better life. 47% of Americans are saving more and living with more security. When will you start?
Life might get in the way, but if you are going to work from home; you are taking the path less traveled. You are going against the grain of what others say and want. Others want to work 9 to 5+. Others settle for stress of a boss, crushing debt, someone else raising their kids and someone else flirting with your spouse (it’s harmless right?)
The question is are you willing to allow life to drag you down and break you into believing you must live the life others have. Or do you believe you were designed for more. Do you believe you can be married to the person of your dreams, be debt-free, live a fun filled comfortable life with no stress and be your own boss. Can you travel the road that is less traveled? Is it worth it?
Be Unbroken! No matter what.
P.S. Break out and do something different. It’s been done before just not by most people. Many but not most!
I told you I’d share a successful home business must have in my last post. I’m a man of my word and I want you to know exactly what you need to be looking for if you want ever want to make a lucrative income. The first one goes without saying you need an amazing product, but not just any product. You need a product people want. Second you have to have a solid system on getting clients, showing clients the details and bringing clients to a decision and finally you need Dani Johnson’s training and a solid way to implement it. I’ll share more on that in a moment!
First let’s talk about the product you need a product that people want to buy, not just what they need. Ask any life insurance sales man, everyone is going to die and everyone needs life insurance. Not everyone “wants” to buy life insurance! For me I chose the travel industry, why? Ask 1,000 people what they would do if they won the lottery and 990 of them will probably say travel the world, go on an amazing vacation and give their family and friends memories. Most people go into debt just to take a vacation every single year. So when you find a product people want now make sure it’s got a solid track record. Ideally something that’s been around for 20+ years, then you have real stability
Second, you should never have to create websites, video’\s or other presentations. Look to work with an organization that has already done that. The company or group you work with should already have in place not only websites, contact management systems, toll-free numbers, pre-written emails and tons of results of people using those websites and tools successfully and succeeding. Do you have access to the same thing other successful people before you have used? Bottom line is there a very simple way to have constant fresh clients interested in what you have and coming to you?
Third, there has to be solid training in place. As long as you have a product that is lucrative, you just need someone to walk you step by step how to successfully market it and deal with your new clients. No one teaches this better than Dani Johnson, she has scripts that you can use with your websites that show you how to start the conversation and turn a prospect into a client from A to Z. I often times tell people I just want to learn to master everything Dani teaches and become really good a showing others how to apply it to our products and business model. The key you have to ask your self do you have someone that you can regularly connect with? Someone who’s already making 6 figures and has for years. Do you have their phone number, email and do they answer or respond when you reach out them. Do they always have an answer to train you with.
If you got started with a product and/or company but you don’t have that training Dani Johnson should absolutely become your base line! Use her training, buy her script books right away, I made 104,000 dollars my first year using her training. Previously I had never worked form home before and that was over 10 years ago. 104,000 dollars is the least I’ve ever made, period. Use her training, it has helped 1,000’s generate 10,000’s of 1,000’s working from home.
So if you want to make a lucrative income working from home and you’ve found a product that pays well to market and it’s a product people WANT not just need. If you’ve found a system that works and others are making 6 figures and if you have someone training you showing step by step how to apply exactly what Dani Johnson teaches you are well on your way to a 6 Figure income!
To Your Success,
Maybe a bigger question is do you really want to make 6 figures? Could you do it from home starting part time? What would that kind of income do for you and your family? What kind of memories could you create? According to the www.sba.gov, “more than half of all U.S. businesses are based out of an owner’s home”.
Starting a home business has worked for millions of people historically. When you find your self stuck living paycheck to paycheck and no way out, what happens when you unexpectedly lose your job? The average worker today stays at each of his or her jobs for 4.4 years, according to the most recent available data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but the expected tenure of the workforce’s youngest employees is about half that.
It’s not a matter of if you will lose your job or get laid off do you think your boss has your best interest at heart? Is your family your employers highest priority? There are two types of people in the population. One type loses their job and has nothing to show for it because today they are living pay check to paycheck. The other population is actively doing things to live a life that is not stressful, they look to build financial stability and long term wealth by developing a side income in a home business.
Can that side business become a 6 Figure income? Yes of course, over 10 years ago when I first started a home business I had no idea that I’d make 104,000 dollars that first year while still on active duty in the military. But when I transitioned out of the military I didn’t need a job. We’ve become debt free, our entire family is a stay at home family! Yesterday afternoon I was BBQing on the grill and playing in the yard with my son at 3:30 in the afternoon. Those memories are worth more than money! But the money is good!
Birds of a feather flock together? The real question is are there people around you actually creating the kind of lifestyle you really want? There’s a small army of people living that life, when are you going to be part of it?
To Your Success,
P.S. Live life on your terms, we’ll show you how!
P.P.S. Next post I will be sharing the basic requirements for any successful home business.
Dani Johnson has taught more people to successfully prospect for new clients and close new business than anyone I know of in the home business industry. Her training was the only reason I went from zero dollars earned to 104,000 dollars my first year working from home. I work 25 hours a week paid off 292,000 dollars in debt in 5 years thanks to Dani Johnson and what she teaches about working from home.
If you’ve been following Dani for quite some time you know that her time has become quite limited from her 100’s of interviews and media projects from Forbes Magazine to TBN to the Oprah Winfrey show. Today she has her own radio show helping every day mom’s and dad’s. Even though Dani Johnson made her first millions from the home business industry, according to her phone script book, “She was destitute broke and living out of her car. Not wanting to end up in that financial position again, she found a way to get started (home business) and made 2,000 dollars her first 10 hours from a pay phone booth, 6,500 in 30 hours, and 10,000 dollars the next month. By the end of her first year she made a quarter of a million dollars and by the end of her second year she made her first million.”
FULL DISCLOSURE: I’ve been working from home for over 10 years and making a solid 6 figure income every year. Learning from Dani Johnson is one of the biggest reasons I started and continue to earn a lucrative income working from home. Every single person I work with I recommend to this training and I’m not an affiliate and I don’t directly benefit from Dani Johnson financially for recommending this training.
Time is running out sign up for what will most likely be Dani’s last prospecting and closing training. This is a 4 weeks teleconference training with live back and forth instruction and Q and A. These training went from quarterly, to periodically to now she has said she, “doesn’t know if she will ever do another one”
You and I may not be working together and we might even work in different industries in the home business industry. But I want you to succeed no matter what. No I don’t benefit from you being part of that training, but I do get satisfaction knowing I’m showing someone what I do to succeed.
To Your Success and I’ll hear you in that class,
P.S. You will help more people after this training, it is very step by step and strategic, your income could freaking sky rocket with this knowledge and who gets to learn one on one with a multi-millionaire. YOU DO!
