Most network marketers have heard or will hear that phrase uttered from some well-intentioned family member or friend. It’s the whole crabs in a bucket thing. When one crab tries to climb it’s way out – the rest will grab at it and pull it back, safely, into the bucket. They canNOT let that crab out into the unknown dangers outside the bucket. I always thought that analogy was kind of strange. Crabs certainly don’t

Normally – I don’t pick up the phone when I don’t recognize the number. If it’s important – they’ll leave a message. No one that I know of – has ever enjoyed getting phone calls from sales people. This one – for some reason- I picked up. Conversation went something like this, I’m putting [friend] in place of a friend’s name… to protect her identity. She doesn’t want you to know her like I do

Carlisle Indian School’s motto. This was in 1882. I like history – and there’s a history guy on Twitter that posted this picture of a Native American in full head dress on the left and in a suit and tie with short hair on the right…. The automatic response on Twitter – from the hoards of Twitter surfers- got a lot of instant, emotional response. “How sad” “Terrible” “What a waste of culture” “Talk about

Alexander Hamilton was a Latino. Chart tells you when it’s too cold to walk your dog. David Bowie had 2 blue eyes. What’s true? Wikepedia is ALWAYS right on right? Well…. that’s the thing. You don’t always know what’s true – unless it’s supported by factual investigation and proof. Even science isn’t always accurate. So – while it seems Google knows all – it’s a bunch of people like you and I that have put

Can you imagine the media? Kind of funny – if you watch the wave of emotions as a results. Before I type these next lines – I want to give credit where credit is due – Sean Kaye wrote this in a private group of copywriters and marketers hang. They LOVE to use this political stuff as fodder for their emails. Me? I don’t know enough to back up what I say – SO –

“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” ~Vince Lombardi I want to talk to the people with the perfect hair, nails, smooth skin, and no fat…. Don’t be offended if that’s you – all of us women are jealous and our very own men drool in your presence. but – there is this thing – that Jim Camp calls “The Columbo Effect”…. Simply put – it’s not being afraid

Tired of emails about Goal Setting? Resolutions? Yeah.  Totally. It’s a waste of time to set goals. Even though – we still practiced our family ritual of writing down different things we wanted.  (Don’t ask me – I don’t know why it’s a “tradition” we simply can’t seem to get rid of – BUT – it does get us talking as a family about what we want out of the next year) ANYWAY Set rituals,

In the beginning of my network marketing “career”… whateveryouwanttocallit…. I kept a spreadsheet of people I “talked” to. Actually – they were people I messaged on Flakebook, Twitter, and now on LinkedIn too. (except I ditched the spreadsheet) That spreadsheet was so that I would remember to do the ALL IMPORTANT followup. Because the “monee is in the followup”. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying you should never follow-up – I’m just saying

Congenital Amputee What is that? Ever heard of it? (truth – I had to Google it so I wouldn’t be screwing it up) It’s being born without limbs – or born without parts of limbs. It’s caused by blood clots in the fetus. Kyle Maynard is one such person. But – he’s a hero. He became a champion athlete, inspirational speaker, college student, and male model. You can read his story in this book: http://amzn.to/2qhTOK1

Want to make 2018 the best year ever? “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyways.” “I’d like to know why well-educated idiots keep apologizing for lazy and complaining people who think the world owes them a living.” 2 things about The Duke (no – not Ellington – I love Jazz – but) – John Wayne. 1. He is not needy. 2. He has a code – and a belief. No matter what
