Have Fun With It

Ready for some fun? Recruitment meetings are a part of the business. Every time we enter a room we are sharing an opportunity that will change someone’s life.

The fun starts as the doors open, you can feel the excitement in the air as the leaders enter the room. The music tonight is the sounds of happy people talking about what is going to take place. You look around the room you see your team members, newly qualified prospects, friends and even family. Tonight is about catching up with the people on your team, brain storming your next move, announcing a new product launch and handing out the awards. All is good and ready to begin…

The people you bring to these events have gone through your screening process and are open to the opportunity or at the very least curious to see if they are ready to make that commit. Now is the time that they can see you at your best and having fun. Show off your team to your prospects so they will know who they can always count on to share their experience and knowledge and they will appreciate the acknowledgement.

They love to show off their skills to. Fellowship is what brings us together we are a group of ordinary people who live fantastic lives. Your people need to feel like they are welcome even if they don’t sign on the bottom line. They have the character that you admire in a person that is why you invited them.

Leave them with an example that will stick with them. Have fun and to tell you the truth I don’t care if you take advantage of the opportunity or not, I just got to spend some time with people I enjoy. Not everyone is ready for an opportunity. I have brought you here it’s up to you to want it. Networking is nothing more than getting together with others, doing a little work and having fun while you’re doing it.

Every person in the room is there to support each other effort and take advantage of the opportunity to show off what they did and how they did it and to see if you want to do it to. When you bring your people to the meeting they can get answer on the spot from your team members that have been around this business longer than you.

They are more than willing to share their stories, so introduce the people you brought to you team, make them feel at home. After the meeting take your people for coffee or a drink. Talk about the meeting and find out what they thought.

Tell them why you are so excited about the changes in your life and how much time and fun you have. Everything you talk about is possible because of the decision you made to become an entrepreneur. We are the living example of what could be possible when you decide you what to work for yourself.

 

What It Takes To Be A Sponsor

A successful sponsor uses a conversation to qualify their lead seeing if they have what it takes to join them in a business. It takes time to build a team. You will interview hundreds of people to get a few that you like and want to spend time with. Start conversations with everyone you meet to see how they measure up to the standards that you want.

When I started out I did not get the information that I am share with you. Do an outline of the team members that you want and what they need to qualify. Knowing what you want in your team will make it easier for you to write down the questions you need to ask. Qualities that you admire in other people is a great stating point for your list of leads. Set a number for them to reach to qualify for your time. You will need to practice, so start right away there’s many people to talk to. We all make mistakes in the beginning and that just part of the learning process. When you get this down it will save you many hours and make qualifying your prospect easy. Set a time a side everyday to talk to leads on the phone.

Here are some of the qualities that I look for in my prospects.

  • Honest people who do what they say when they say they will do it. I building a business relationship by being honest and expect the same from my business relationships.
  • Outgoing and energetic people (You only get one chance to make a first impression so my leads had better make a good one.)
  • Successful, business minded people are patient and focus on their goals, are open to opportunities and willing to work for what they want.
  • Personalities that are easy-going and don’t sweat the small stuff, they are patient, kind and can easily start or join into a conversation.
  • Straight-forward people can easily get to the point and they pay attention to details.
  • People, who commit themselves in the opportunity, have clear goals to get what they want and follow through until they succeed.
  • People who actively are looking for a home business opportunity and treat a home business as a business not a hobby.

That brings us to the qualities that no one wants to work with because of being a downer. These people only see the negative in life and are no fun. I Avoid these people they are depressing.

  • People that doubt every move you make and can be negative when dealing with you or anyone else.
  • Control freak, people who don’t understand the word no or have trouble letting anyone shine except for themselves.
  • Unemployable people who can’t hold down a job and don’t have good work habits. If they can’t work for someone they will never work for themselves.
  • People with a fearful personality are afraid to take a risk or have a fear of success, afraid of change.
  • A hostile person, no one wants to spend time around mean and nasty people who will not considered others and use fear to intimidate or control.

You want the best people to join your company, so look for the business builders that want to work with a strong team. When you start qualifying you are screening people looking for those who are willing to work for what they want and will follow through with the commit they make. Don’t waste your time on anyone who doesn’t qualify, they are not worth your time. Qualify quickly and move on to the next lead.You want to develop relationships with people with connections to a network of business people. Business relationship with these people will develop over time and is worth your time.

You can’t put desire into someone. This is not a get rich quick industry and if you sponsor the wrong person you will be wasting your time. This is an emotional drain on you and your business. These relationships make your business. Face to face is still the best way to qualify a person, as you move through your day pay attention to the sale clerk or the waitress working their way through school. They may have the qualities that you admire and the attitude you’re looking for. The bank teller is working with money, clearly has a job and is someone worth you building a relationship with. Your doctor or dentist maybe looking for a business opportunity to expand their earning portfolio.

So do you have what it takes to sponsor? I don’t know what you will do with the opportunity or what your work habits are. A sponsor is the one who hand picks the people who they want to do business with and they support a team with the same qualities that they admire in others. They build a strong team of people who believe that failure is not an option and will do what it takes to succeed. The standards that you set for your team is no different then you will have for yourself as a team builder.

Memory Joggers And How To Use Them

Memory joggers can help you with your marketing efforts. It’s part of the package. Marketing material, training manual, and the products you can use or give away as samples to prospects. Inside the manual you will find printed material and the one you want to focus on is a memory jogger. If your manual doesn’t have one you can make one easy or download one from your back office, most companies supply a memory jogger with their training materials.

So what do you do with your memory jogger? Start by writing down the names of everyone you know, matching them with their occupation. Whether they are friends, family or just an acquaintance put them on the list. This is a great way to keep you focused on contacting everyone you know. All you have to do is contact as many as you have on your list by phone or mail. Right! If less than 10% of everyone you contact is going to entertain your offer, you better have an endless list.

 So how do you get more out of the memory jogger?

  • Select the people in your friends and family that are already a success at bring in an income and open to making extra money for family vacations etc…
  • Graduated from college in the last 5 years you are on my list. You have proven that you will do what it takes to educate yourself and use any leverage to get ahead in your goals.
  • The teachers from the local school are great candidates they are into self educating to keep their teaching skills up to date.
  • Doctors, lawyers and business owner work long hours and may want to work less or retire early. Your opportunity will give them that.

We can go through each person on the memory jogger list, but you get the drift. Your list is more than just writing down the names of the people you know. It is a grow file and that paper that you got is just a guide to get you started. I say take that list and change it into a filing system that you can categorize everyone you know, meet and new relationships that you will be making.

The folders are based on your memory jogger and put local contacts into a folder labeled local talent. I look for qualities that you can build a business relationship with. The inside of the folder has a list of 5 qualifying questions. If you meet the requirements you get a file with your name, number, date and contact time, along with a call back number. I leave an open space to write your questions and set a date for a three-way call with a team member in the company who will have the answers.

Make a point to invite everyone in your folders to local events by phone, email or mail. Doctors and lawyer have a folder of their own with the same a file with name, number, date and contact time, along with a call back number. I leave an open space to write down your questions and set a date for a three way call with a team member that is seasoned in the company.

Think about the strategy that you put into your list these are local people and you are choosing the people you will want to have a business relationship with. You don’t want to waste your time on anyone that does not qualify for your time. You are putting them in a position that is give and take. If they are not going to work at building their business, than they are a broken wheel on a cart that will go nowhere until a new one is put in its place. That is why the qualifications are so important. You don’t want to drag them into anything they cannot do. You are guiding who you sponsor.

The companies that you are in business with are multimillion dollar businesses and will weed out anyone that doesn’t have what it takes to success.

So even if the memory jogger is a good way to get started it is what you do with the people on the list. Don’t waste too much time on close family and friends if they get curious enough they will ask you. Then feel free to share just enough to see if they qualify for business time. They will always have your love and quality time and that is why you are doing this.
