For some consultants, talking with people they do not know is no big deal.  Yet for others, the hardest element in promoting their direct sales business is opening their mouth to talk with strangers.  It truly does get easier with practice, though let’s face it, some people will never be terribly outgoing.  These cautious, observant people can be just as successful as those with sanguine temperaments.

Two questions I am frequently asked is “How do you approach people?” and “What do you say to the waitress, store clerk, receptionist, etc.?

If you want an easy to remember lead in, one that is almost guaranteed you will not receive any rejection, try this:

“If you know anyone who likes [product], could you please pass this along?” Then hand the person a business card, sample, or catalog.

Most people will not refuse to take it.  Worst case is that they make take it, and later throw it away; but then you still were able to get out of your comfort zone and practice talking to people.  Best case is that you could get a new customer or recruit out of it.

This is a non-threatening approach because the person you’re talking with doesn’t immediately get on the defensive thinking you’re trying to sell anything; you’re merely asking for a referral.  The person you’re talking with could very well be the person who loves candles, lotions, supplements, jewelry or cooking.

Try those 13 words and then let me know it goes.

If you know anyone who likes [product], could you please pass this along?


Whether or not you are currently in network marketing, or have been involved with network marketing in the past, you have no doubt heard about it. In the past few years network marketing has become more popular. Celebrities such as Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump have also endorsed it. Furthermore, network marketing is becoming a more popular career choice by many people including eighteen year olds who have just graduated from high school. If you are wondering about network marketing and why it might be the right career choice for you, let me share with you seven reasons why network marketing is becoming so popular.

1. Network marketing offers flexibility. A traditional job simply does not offer the freedom and flexibility that you can have when you have your own network marketing business. You can work from virtually anywhere you have a computer and a phone. Furthermore, moms can earn an income while raising children and still be available to take care of them without the expenses and hassles of day care.

2. Starting your own business is the only way to gain financial freedom and network marketing is a great way to get started with your own business without debt and a large investment. Furthermore, when you partner with a network marketing company to start your own business, you do not have to worry about making your own products, or creating your own marketing materials and comprehensive training is included.

3. Corporate employment and traditional jobs and becoming less and less secure. Having your own network marketing business is quickly becoming one of the only ways you can secure your own income and your own future. You can control when you work, where you work, how much you work and how much money you earn. Furthermore, you cannot be laid off when you are the one in charge.

4. With an increasingly large selection of companies and opportunities to choose from, everyone can find a network marketing company with whom they feel comfortable working. Virtually every kind of product and service is available to you are certain to find something you can stand behind.

5. Salaries are decreasing while the cost of living is increasing with most professions. The only way in the future to even be able to make ends meet is going to be by making the power of leverage only available with network marketing work for you.

6. Network marketing allows you to learn more about yourself and to develop self-confidence as well as many other skills, which you either cannot learn, or which are more difficult to learn in other situations in order to succeed. You will learn an amazing amount of information and gain highly valuable skills by becoming a network marketing professional.

7. Since success in network marketing is based upon the success of others, you will make many friends many of whom you will develop lasting friendships and relationships. Many of these friends will be people whom you would never have met if it had not been for your business.

Essence of life

Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world.

If you compare, you are insulting youself.


No one will manufacture a lock without a key.

Similarly God won’t give problems without solutions.


Life laughs at you when you are unhappy…

Life smiles at you when you are happy…

Life salutes you when you make others happy…


Every successful person has a painful story.

Every painful story has a successful ending.

Accept the pain and get ready for success.


Easy is to judge the mistakes of others.

Difficult is to recognize our own mistakes.

It is easier to protect your feet with slippers

than cover the earth with carpet.


No one can go back and change a bad beginning.

But anyone can srart now and create a successful ending.


If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it.

If a problem can not be solved what is the use of worrying???


If you miss an opportunity don’t fill the eyes with tears.

It will hide another better opportunity in front of you.


“Changing the face” can change nothing.

But “Facing the change” can change everything.

Don’t complain about others;

Change yourself if you want peace!!!


Mistakes are painful when they happen.

But years later collection of mistakes is called experience,

Which leads to success.

Be bold when you loose and be calm when you win.


Heated gold becomes ornaments.

Beaten copper becomes wires.

Depleted stone becomes statue.

So the more pain you get in life

You become more more valuable.

A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a “career” of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do “for a living” makes you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.

Be different

To make a difference, you often must be different. It takes courage and confidence to go against the grain of negativity that surrounds you, and such courage can bring great rewards.

Where others see only doom and gloom, look for the bright glimmer of opportunity. For it is most certainly there.

When everyone is looking for someone to blame for what has already happened, turn your focus toward the future. Exploring the current possibilities will create infinitely more value than arguing over past failures.

When you encounter rudeness and irritation, generously offer your own polite and confident patience. When you bump up against the arrogance of another person, melt it away with your own sincere, self-assured humility.

Just because everyone is heading in a negative direction doesn’t mean you must go that way too. On the contrary, it’s a valuable opportunity for you to set a positive example.

In times of great difficulty and stress, choose to be a beacon of encouragement, understanding and positive purpose. Be different, and you can truly make a valuable positive difference

Happiness is now

As long as you are preparing to be happy,you will not be.If you continue to see happiness as some distant goal to be reached, you will not experience it.
Happiness is now.The only time you can ever experience it is the moment that you are in.
Happiness is unconditional.When you put conditions on happiness, it immediately disappears.
Happiness makes no judgment’s or demands.When you focus on judging others and making demands of them,it drives happiness away from life.
Though happiness is simple and uncomplicated,it is at the same time profound and sophisticated.For when you allow yourself to be truly happy,the positive energy can reach into every corner of your life.
Set aside the complaints,excuses,conditions and demands,and make a place for happiness in your world.Be happy, and you’ll discover a whole new level of life’s richness.

It’s best not to get too excited or too depressed by the ups and downs of

“He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment.”
We are the ocean — vast, deep, powerful and rich. Nourishing and nurturing.
Dive down into the dark stillness of being. Sense the rising and falling of
surface thoughts and emotions, sometimes gentle, sometimes violent. Always
shifting. Always in motion. Draw back and watch the waves of your life at play.
Know you are the unfathomable depths — surface agitations can’t disturb you. Know that you are bigger than the little things that aggravate
