The Death Trap of “Assumption”

The two great detriments to Success and Achievement are “Assuming” and “Presuming”.  We all have experienced the pain of failure and disappointment because of “Assuming” we had all the information we needed to get the job done.  Assuming and Presuming are death traps to our Success, Income and Business.  “I assumed they were going to show up because they told me they were”.  Did you follow up, send a confirmation email, and make that last minute confirmation call or decide on a concrete definite plan? No…then it should be no surprise when they don’t show up.

Most mistakes are a result of “Assuming” something is one way but in fact is another way.  One thing Melinda and I work on daily and have a firm commitment is to eradicate “vehemently” Assumption and Presumption.  We operate our business on “Fact, Confirmation, Inspection, Follow up, and Confirmation again”.  You Must Inspect what you Expect!

The way to get people to lose confidence in your leadership and not trust you is to have a habit of making wrong decisions and choices because of “Assumption and Presumption” Many people who get into Network Marketing “Assume” their best friends are going to be as excited as they are and join up and base their judgment of the industry on that assumption.  Unfortunately, that assumption leads them to the harsh reality fact that this is not correct and for many that is their end for their Network Marketing Career.

Never Assume Anything…Always operate on facts, confirmation and follow up.

Before you execute your plans, base your hope or take action make sure that you are operating from a position of facts not assumptions.  You will find you will have far more success and far less pain of failure and disappointment.

Remember, Assumption will lead to False Expectation which always leads to Bitter Dis-appointment.

The Latte Master…

When it comes to staying ahead of our sinking economy and becoming one of the top income earners in your industry I have always shared that your top ingredient is that you have to set yourself apart from your lattecompetition.  If you want a technical name for this it is called your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) or Unique Selling Position.  You have to ask yourself continually “What am I doing to make myself unique and different in the marketplace?” “What makes me stand out, get noticed but most importantly get remembered?”

If you want to have the competitive slight edge that is a must requirement to win in business and qualify you for high income earnings, your ability to make yourself different is the secret ingredient.  Many professionals use gifts as a way of customer or prospect leverage and although this method is effective it can be very risky and hard to get it just right.  Get it wrong and the outcome can be disastrous, get it extremely wrong and you could end up in the “Poky” having the gift being termed an illegal bribe.

What do I recommend as a nice appropriate gift for a customer or a prospect that is both classy and appropriate? If it is a prospect that I am dealing with I will send over a cup of the world’s richest and highest quality latte.  One that is rich in aroma and taste and I use one that is extremely healthy as well with the healing herb called “Ganoderma”.  I include a nice letter explaining that there is no better way to build relationships than to do The Power of Mentorship Booksit over a delicious Latte!

If I am dealing with a high dollar customer I will send them an entire box of this gourmet coffee.  It is important to use a gift that is not only appropriate but one that will blow the socks (and shorts) off the receiver.  Therefore, I find out if they prefer a Latte, a Gourmet Hot Chocolate or Organic Tea.

Using this type of gift or what I call being a “Latte Master” is one of the most appropriate, well received and classy acts of appreciation you could give and the bonus side of this is that it’s safe as a gift for any person, business, or industry.  It will speak “Class” on your part and set you apart from everyone else in your field.  To give you a live demonstration and actual experience, I would love to buy you a cup of the worlds best Latte (or gourmet hot chocolate or tea) and send it to you as my gift for being our reader and of course I will send it over postpaid on my end.

Just shoot me an email at don@donboyer.org and your shipping address and I will ship you out a Coffee Latte that will make you think you died and went to heaven!  Okay, maybe that is a bit of a stretch, but I guarantee you will love it!

When you send a unique gift it gives you the slight edge of standing out, getting noticed and being remembered, all which are necessary ingredients to win in this new economy.  Do you know how many people drink coffee? I don’t know either but I know it is ton of folks.  They drink it morning, noon and at night.  In fact I am told that coffee is the number two commodity in the world.  The little coffee bean is a popular little booger and everyone seems to love it and drink it, and drink it and drink it.  So stand up, stand out and stand to be remembered by being a “Latte Master”.  I look forward to hearing from you and sending you the world’s best latte.   Let me buy you a Latte, you will love it.

Until tomorrow, thanks for taking time to be with us today and continue you to share us with your network.

What Does It Take To Earn A Six and Seven Figure Income?

Ok, enough of the hoopla, the smoke screens, the fast track to success plans and every other horse manure systems out there, all promising to be the path to riches.  What does it really take to earn an annual six and seven figure income?  First and foremost you must realize that millions of individuals are earning those annual figures and much more, and a six and seven figure income is out there waiting for you and is within your grasp.  Now, with that being said…

Bob ProctorHere Is The True NO B.S. Facts on What You Need To Build a Six and Seven Figure Annual Income.

What do you need to build a six and seven figure annual income?

Superior Tools An ordinary craftsman with superior tools can out perform a superior craftsman with inferior tools.  It still amazes me how many professionals work with inferior tools yet expect to achieve superior results.  One of the best lessons my Mentor taught me early on was; “Never buy the cheapest tools you can, always buy the most expensive ones you can afford”.

Proven Plan Over forty percent of all individuals and companies I interview and ask the question “What is your plan to attract new customers, retain existing customers and increase profits” look at me with a blank stare and have their lips move and quiver but no words come out!  (Once in a while a weird Monster growl leaks out that sound like Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh).  Your marketing plan has to be so simple and effective and proven that even the janitor could implement it should the sales staff not come in.

The Journey Movie

The Journey Movie

A Qualified Mentor A lot of people out there who are selling How to Get Rich products are not qualified to Mentor a mouse how to get cheese! Yet people spend millions of dollars annually with them.  A qualified Mentor is one who has what you want, has done and is doing what you want to do.   I asked one Bozo who was selling a coaching product on how to write a book and get published, how many books he has published?  He looked at me and said, “Who Me?”  (The answer was zero).  I thought to myself, this guy should be a circus clown.

No B.S. Questions and Answers

How much Money will you have to invest up front?  $4.10 a day

How much Time do you have to invest everyday?  About 60 minutes, 6 days a week.

How Long will it take you? 12 months or less.

This system works for any type of business and profession and for those starting a new business venture.

The plan is simple and easy to do, the cost anyone can afford, and the time frame is not that long, but the reward and dream of financial stability is worth it!

To find out if this plan is right for you, you can set up a phone appointment with me and by answering 7 simple questions you will be able to make an intelligent decision on your own if this plan is for you.  I promise you this, after you answer the 7 questions you will have no doubt in your mind if it is or is not for you.  You will not have to think about it, it will be an absolute Yes or NO!

It will cost you nothing to find out, but could be the vital key that will financially give you everything you want.

How does the plan work?  3 Simple Steps

  1. Create an Audience (by giving away no cost informational products)
  2. Develop a Following (by providing them more no cost resources)
  3. Sell Them Products (that they now are willing and happy to pay for) 

Try my proven system for 12 months and if you have not created a six figure income and doubled your income, I will give you One Thousand Dollars…Guaranteed!

I have created and published 26 books, produced 4 major motivational films and work with the most recognized leaders in business and have over 220,000 printed copies of our books in the marketplace and one million e-books worldwide all because My Proven System Works.  I used this same system to start a Spa business in 2009 from scratch and in 9 months went from zero customers to over 900 customers and in two and half years built our paying client base to 3500 then sold it for an outrages profit in 2012!  I use this same system to create our Reality Show, The Millionaire Picker (you can see it at www.MillionairePickers.com) and use this same system to build our MSI Antique Store working with top celebrities which are my friends not paid endorsements.

This same system is what I use everyday that built our Seminar, Mentoring, Book Publishing and Film Company Empire over the past 20 years.  It is also the reason we can afford to spend thousands of dollars a month on giving away products all over the world at no cost and postpaid, changing and improving lives all over the globe! In fact our give away product budget is more than the average American earns in a single year.

It all started 20 years ago when I started giving away a Zig Ziglar audio cassette to prospects and clients.  Back then, I did not start it as a marketing tool, I was just a nice guy who was helped by this tape and wanted everyone to have it.  So I made a bunch of copies at home and started giving them away.  I had no clue that this was the beginning of building my future financial fortune.

Every dollar I have ever earned from that day to this, I can trace back to this system of giving away informational products.  After 20 years and lots of success under my belt of course, I have perfected this turn key system to a science or what I call Predictable Wealth.

One thing you will learn about me the more time you spend with me, is the fact that I Hate with a Passion B.S. and Exaggeration.  Do not give me bluff, just the solid facts. Because I am this way, I operate my business on the same principle; I will never give you a bunch of horse crap dressed up as a promise, just the true facts of the good and bad points of everything in business.

Our Marketing system works for any business to create any income you desire if you work and use the system.  So remember, just email me at don@donboyer.org a time you want to talk and find out how we can put you in the drivers seat toward your six and seven annual income.

Now you got the facts, without the bluff, you decide what you do next…

M.S.I. Multiple Streams of Income

One major Secret of all wealthy entrepreneurs is that they have all learned how to create MSI systems (Multiple Streams of Income) within their company or outside of their company. Let me share a few ideas on how you can start doubling and tripling your income by adding a few of these MSI units to what you are already doing.

Lead generator products.  If you are not using a Free e-book, CD, DVD, Reports and/or Blog as an information product to give away in the marketplace you are leaving thousands of dollars on the table and I promise you your competitors are more than happy to take it!  A lead generating product is inexpensive and extremely easy to create and is very effective in turning complete strangers into loyal customers. CD

They are also the foundation of creating an atmosphere and environment of buying verses one of selling.  People hate to be sold, but love to buy!  In fact, when you become a master at creating the buying environment selling becomes unnecessary.  Most waiters don’t focus on selling but on serving, and you get to take the same approach in the buying atmosphere.

If I sold cars, I would create a Free Report, CD and/or DVD or e-book on “Secret Diary of A Car Dealership Owner” 10 Things A Car Dealership Don’t Want You To Know. This transforms you from a pushy commission based salesperson, to friend and coach that is playing on their team.  You then list 10 tips that would benefit the consumer who is in the market for a new car.  Who would you feel more comfortable dealing with, the sales professional who sent you this valuable resource, or driving up to almost any car dealership where 10-15 salespeople are standing at the door like wild starved wolves waiting for their next meal? homebasedipad

Here are 5 of my lead generating tools that I use in emails, free reports, CD, DVD and e-book formats. 

  • “How To Make Your Money Go Up When The Economy Goes Down” (designed to reach anyone with a brain) 
  • “How To Speak More Often To More People For More Money” (designed for the Professional Speaker) 
  • “How To Earn 10,000 Dollars Every Time You Speak” (designed for the Professional Speaker) 
  • “How Effective Is Your Business Card?” (designed for any business) 
  • “How To Turn Complete Strangers Into Paying Customers” (designed for any business or professional selling products or services) 

Now if you look at these Ideas and start making excuses and reasons why you could not create this type of marketing tool, or why it would not work in your field, you might as well just resign yourself for spending the rest of your days with Charlie Tuna at the bottom of the Sea.  It does not matter what kind of business you are in or product you sell, finding new customers and clients is the key to doubling and tripling your income.  Take a look at what you do and if you cannot figure how to add a MSI to it, or need some ideas then join our Exclusive Inner Circle Membership where we are waiting to help and mentor you for free!

Until tomorrow, keep dreaming big and make sure your actions are bigger than your dreams.

The Mindset of a Coast Guard

Did you see the movie Coast Guard with Kevin Costner?  I loved that movie, and the one thing that has stuck in my mind was their mantra “We have to go in (water) but we don’t have to come back”.

When it comes to prospecting today, you have to be relentless, ruthless and unstoppable.  Today business is like a mad ragging sea, sinking business ships by the thousands everyday.  The economy is like the movie “The Perfect Storm”.  With this kind of aggressive and violent business environment your job as a “Prospector” is not trying to find customers so that you can survive by selling them stuff, your role like a Coast Guard is to save customers with your answers and solutions to their problems.

Your ideal customer, the one who is ready to purchase what you have to offer is already out there, in the matrix of the business environment and you dear reader as Coast Guard prospector has to jump in and save them.

Are business and the economy rough and hard?  Does a bear go do-do in the woods?  Everyday you are going to be tempted not to prospect, you will be distracted, things will come up, you will bombarded with no, No, HELL NO! From prospects you are simply attempting to help.  Everything and every element around you and within you will do everything in its nature to keep you from prospecting, marketing and selling, better known as saving the ones lost in the sea of business.

People laugh when they see me wearing my bright red or bright orange shirt that has “Search and Rescue” on the front and back.  Listen, you have to get your mind in the right frame to be a ruthless, relentless Coast Guard marketing and prospecting machine to find (save) your ideal customer.  Here is a tip that will help you double and triple your income, “Business, Prospecting and Marketing Is Not A Game” 

It is the most serious and important type of work you could possibly engage in.  And here is another secret tip to double and triple your income, “Only The Fittest, Strongest and Best Equipped Professional Succeeds in this New Economy”. 

Can you imagine a Coast Guard who is overweight, unfit, ill equipped, untrained and fearful jumping into a raging sea to save people?  Yet this is exactly the type of dynamics that are happening in the world of business everyday which causes people to meet bitter disappointment.  However, it gets worse, because these same people sit at the end of their rope and say with heads in hand and tears in their eyes…”This damn economy done me in”.   

Ok, this is for all you 4 percent winners out there who are ready to double and triple your income this year and refuse to meet Charlie Tuna at the bottom of the Sea.  It is time for Money Boot Camp.  Here are the 4 things you must do right now, today, not tomorrow or when you think you can do this, your future income and business is serious stuff, do these 4 things pronto.People Prospecting

  3. Divorce Excuses.  30 years ago my Millionaire Mentors yanked my shorts over my head and barked, “You can make money or make excuses but not simultaneously”.   When we produced our first movie a number of years ago I almost had to wake up our CPA with smelling salts when I told him the budget because he knew that although the budget was more than our liquid cash on hand, that was no excuse to stop us. You know what, it did not stop us, and in fact we have done 3 more very successful movies after that first one!
  4. Be A Business Coast Guard.  What stops a Coast Guard from jumping in that raging Sea to save people? Nothing!  No icy freezing water, no fear of death, no storm.  His mission statement is “We have to go in but we don’t have to come back”.  If you are going to jump into the raging waters of business and succeed to double and triple your income you are going to have to…”Get Your Ass in the Water Right Now”!

Give Your Way To The Top!

I want to welcome everyone to today’s post.  I appreciate everyone who leaves a like post and all those who are referring our daily blog to their friends and family.  Our goal is to provide you with the most cutting edge business, sales, and marketing secrets to help you double and triple your annual income.  I want to expose the biggest deception that is wiping businesses out and causing more stress than people can deal with.  That deception is…”Business is Slow Due To The Economy”.  The reason this belief is so dangerously deadly is because it’s so easy to swallow and accept.  We struggle with this concept because our check book shows shortage and so our heart and emotions buy into the problem being the economy and it overrides our logic when we see malls, Costco stores, and food chains bursting with business!

If your cash flow and business is slow and in trouble the direct cause is not the economy, the cause is you are not making marketing, exposure, prospecting and sales your number one priority everyday.  I wrote a few days ago about our 3 Best Friends, if you did not read that post, do so today.  Ok, here are the three things you must do to solve all your financial problems and create prosperity once again in your business.

  1. Build An Audience.  Unless you are creating an audience and a following, your hopes to stay afloat and in business, let alone double and triple your income is very slim indeed.   Like when Loyed (Jim Carry in Dumber and Dumber) asked the sexy girl he was in love with; “What chance do I have with you…one out of ten?”  She said, “More like one in a million”!  He was so stupid he yelled, “Yes! So I have a chance!”  What are you doing today to build an audience?  You build an audience by “Creating An Atmosphere To Buy” 
  1. Build A System. Your lead generating system to attract and retain customers are your daily blog, weekly ezine and lead generating gifts of CD’s and DVD’s and most important giving away an e-book you co-authored with top international leaders. 
  1. Make An Offer.  Making an offer is a combination of creating an audience, having a system (marketing); creating a buying atmosphere and attracting the right customers (those who are ready to buy and looking for you) with quality give away gifts. 

As we both know, I could not possibly cover all the details on how to do this in a single post, however this gives you an outline of what it is going to take in order for you to not only solve your financial problems but to double and triple your annual income.

The truth is, the bad economy plays No Role in your lack of business and financial success. D.C. Cordova founder of Money and You, taught us if our business is in a slump it’s because we are not spending enough time and focus on money generating activities. 

What is the first thing most business owners do when they get a lead? I will give you the answer…They try to sell them something.  That is not the way to build an audience, create an atmosphere of buying or make an offer and the worst way to make a sale.  Get this statement in your heart and it will help you double and triple your income;

The Power of Mentorship Books“If You Seek A Sale You Get Fed For The Day

If You Seek A Customer You Get Fed For A Lifetime” 

Making a sale and creating a customer is as far apart as an idiot and a brain, far as the South Pole is from the North Pole. Every business that is struggling right now has no clue how to create a customer or make a sale.  Here is the formula in a nut shell (this may blow your kahoo-nies right off your butt); You create a customer first and then proceed to make a sale. Just because a person or company buys something from you does not make them a customer.

A customer is a person or company that enters into a positive win-win relationship with you for a set period…preferably for a lifetime. 

The way and the only way you create a customer is by sowing, giving and imparting massive amounts of value into their life with a rock solid commitment to solve their problems and give them what they want.  You do that, and you never have to worry about your customer complaining about your price or leaving you for something cheaper.

When I was in the 5th grade I dated older women, those in the 6th grade.  I was the envy of all the 5th grade boys because the only ones they made love to were grass hoppers, lizards and bugs.  Here was my style and how I had such good fortune with the ladies.  Every Friday when I got my allowance I would ride my bike to Sears and I would buy two Christophers, a small stuff animal and as many candy bars as I could. ($5.00 went a long way in 1969).

Then on Monday morning I would pack my backpack (which in 1969 there was no such thing as a backpack for school so I made my own) with all my goodies.  When I got to the bus stop all the 6th grade girls would be gathered and talking and I would walk up and start passing my treats out.  Are you kidding me?  The girls went wild! I was hugged, kissed, and I think even goosed a time or two and as we got on the bus, there I was a welcomed guest with all the older women eating out of my hand.  I was the man with the plan and I did not even know it.  How strange all these years later, that same concept would make me a millionaire!

Listen, if you follow my systems, get in our books, learn my “Painless Prospecting” and Painless Selling” method, I will teach you how to build an audience, create a system, create a customer and make sales for a lifetime.

As one guy said who uses our system, “When I first started leaning your system, I made so much money there was not enough Poly Grip in the house to keep my teeth from falling out of my head”.  You got to love a guy like that…thanks Jeff!

In closing, everyday you are not using my systems is costing you thousands of dollars in profits.  What are you waiting for, email me today so we can get you published in our upcoming book and start making you…lots of money!  See you mañana!
