Accountability & Encouragement

Weekly Accountability & Encouragement Questions Document

Summary of Accountability System:

One of Dani Johnson's leadership development trainers, Laura Senkowski, met with us Friday and gave us some simple advice for running our business like a business. Laura has a track record of working with top Young Living income earners, Sarah Harnisch, Christa Smith, and Lindsey Germont.

Laura had two main points: We need to have scheduled business hours and get good at tracking numbers so we know where we are having success and where we need to grow.

Consistency is very important. We don't have a business if we are not doing income producing activities (IPAs) every day. Laura recommended we schedule 10 hours a week, but it is possible to grow a business slowly with as little as 5 hours a week. Less than 5 hours a week will not create the mommentum needed to grow a home-based business.

IPAs include invites, classes, and follow-ups. If we are not talking to people and building relationships, we don't have a business.


Brian Neiderhaus says that if you have 5 hours a week that means 3 hours of invites, a 1-hour class and 1 hour of follow-up. That translates to 4 classes month. If you are working 10 hours a week you would double that and do two classes a week or eight a month.

Invites means you are calling people to invite them to either an intro class, an event or a business opportunity presentation.
 Classes are made up of two parts, the presentation and the closing. The most important part is the closing.
Follow-ups are also called Care Calls. We like to follow-up with new members 3-10-30 days after a class. The purpose of these calls is to help them use the products they purchased, ask them to host a class and help them make a second purchase

Before making your invite and follow-up calls it is very important to write a list. I recommend you make a new list once a week. If you are working 5 hours a week you will need a list of 20 people to invite to a presentation, and 5 members to follow-ups with. (Call them three times) 50-75 dials/week (20-30 dials an hour and expect to talk to between 1-3 people an hour).


Laura reminded us that another very important part of treating our business like a business is tracking numbers.

When Katy was on Dani Johnson’s YL coaching classes, they had to track the same numbers every week: # of dials, # of contacts, # of presentations, # of sales, # of biz builders closed, and income earned. 

ER% is something we have tracked in the past and is a number we want to start tracking again. You can track this very easily through the oily tools app. The goal is 30-50% or better!

Accountability is not a negative thing it is a positive thing. If we are working in small teams of four, we will have a lot of wisdom to share with each other. We will be able to celebrate our successful numbers together and get advice on how to do better with our weaker numbers. Weakness are not bad they just are. We all have weaknesses.

At the beginning of the month your accountability team leader will ask you for your 90 day goals and 30 day goals. Your accountability team will help you make those goals a reality by figuring out what it is going to take to reach those goals.

We also realized that the most important rank in our organization is the rank of Star. The new Star is the enthusiastic oil user, the class hostess, and the budding new business builder. 

If each of the current business builders in the HML team focused on helping 1-3 new people reach the rank of star each month, we would all be ranking up every six months. The new Star is the one who needs the most support.

So we are going to track and celebrate ER%, and new Stars, and we are also going to track our IPA numbers: # of dials, # of conversations, # of classes, # of new members, and OGV growth.

We encourage everyone to be a part of one or two accountability teams that are meeting weekly for about 20 min. One group is for your own accountability and encouragement and the other group is for you to lead. If you are just getting started and don’t have anyone to lead yet. Don’t worry. You will soon.

You are encouraged to use the accountability questions below. Your Weekly Accountability Worksheet is page three of this document. Make several copies of page 3 so you can fill one out each week:

Note: Next to '# of Conversations' on the worksheet it has (Y, N, M) This stands for Yes, No, or Maybe. This means every time you have a conversation you have a message, an invitation to come to a class or view a presentation. Their response to this invitation is yes, no, or maybe. Record that conversation as Y, N, or M. Simple.

My wish for all of us is that we would thrive with Young Living; that we would find a way to serve many people, because it’s a stone-cold fact, we have a better way.

8 Steps to Success

If you have had any training with Dani Johnson, you may have heard her talk about the eight steps to success:
  1. Exposure
  2. Connection
  3. Presentation
  4. Closing
  5. Follow-up
  6. Mobilization
  7. Duplication
  8. Leadership Development

At the last First Steps to Success event, Brian broke this down for those of us in network marketing and I want to break it down further for those of us on the HML-Young Living team.

Chances are you have done many, if not all these steps, before. If we want greater success, we need to follow these steps with greater skill.

Dani's Master Plan for Your Business

From Brian Niederhaus, Smarter Networker 30 Day Bootcamp:

Hopefully, you're well into your bootcamp at this point and gaining momentum in your business. However, you may be a lot like many other people who are looking for more detailed information that applies specifically to your current needs. The Bootcamp has such great core content but Dani has taken it to a whole other level and put together a complete series of CD sets to help you where you're at now. If you have checked out the "products" page on Smarter Networker you may be asking yourself "where should I start?" Well, I took that exact question directly to the source and Dani shared with me her master plan for her product line. I hope this answers you question.

PRO Bootcamp- First, and foremost, is the PRO membership because it is just an amazing value. Tons of great content, totally portable,  etc., etc.

Script Book(s) – Dani is all about results and success, so, the script book and the supplemental script book are critical to making money right now. This must have tool will increase your success and give you tangible results faster than any other single item.

Now, here is where it gets interesting. You probably have already seen Smarter Networker promote the above items so you already know you need them. But what you choose next is determined by how you are building your business- "Leads based" or “Belly-to-belly”.

But before the two styles split into their own paths Dani recommends that you grab the Six Figures in Six Month set (aka “Live in North Carolina”). This is really a powerful set of CD’s that is an entire First Steps to Success event recording.  This doesn’t replace attending a live event, nothing can, but you will get a great overview of Dani’s entire system with this series.

Now, check out this chart to see how Dani designed her CD program to best meet your needs:

                                                                          LEADS BASED SYSTEM

                                                                           HOME BASED SYSTEM

Leads Based systemProspecting and Closing Your Way to Millions is the advanced course for this style of business building. You get the mindset andthe skillset all in one package.

Home Based system- Whether it’s home parties, an office based system or a hotel meetings you want to have Instant Customer Goldmine in your library. You will learn how to develop a never ending supply of referrals and customers to feed your business.

As you gain skill and momentum in your business you will run into new challenges. “How do I give a great presentation?” or “Now, that I have a team, how do I make it grow?” are common questions that Dani answers in her CD sets. Check out the Products page on Smarter Networker for a full description of all the products or contact us directly at 1-512-900-2779 and we can give you a recommendation.

Do You Have a Hobby or a Business?

When it comes down to it, there are two types of Young Living distributors:

1. Those who build their business
2. Those who dabble in a hobby

Learning to say "No" to things that are sucking your time away, is just as important as saying "Yes" to a select few things that will actually build a business that produces residual income.

These are the three activities top Young Living distributors have identified as income producing:

1. Teach Intro Classes
2. Follow-up
3. Train Distributors

High Tech Meets High Touch

Brian Carruthers, one of the top network marketing professionals in the world, says many people thought the internet was going to be the silver bullet for network marketing. "No more home classes! No more face-to-face meetings. A virtual business!"

The fact is, Carruthers says, "High tech will never replace high tough. Technology can enhance the process and make some aspects more efficient like filling out an application online. Even hosting a webinar to present to people across the globe is an amazing benefit. But you will not succeed if you try to eliminate what created the network marketing profession in the first place - relationships!

"Word-of-mouth works because it allows companies to market their products and services to our networks of people we interact with.

"This is a relationship business."

There is no substitute for having people come to home classes. This is where over 90% of our members have been introduced to Young Living and joined our team.

We can use the internet to invite friends, eliminate a paper trail, and share information, but at the end of the day - it is true friends sitting in the living room, smelling the oils, and hearing your stories that creates the magic of network marketing.

Is your WHY Bigger than the Obstacle? - Two Stories

If you don’t think Sarah Harnisch has a strong reason for what she does, you need to read her Gameplan book. It is so inspiring. It is not about the money – it is about the freedom.

Darren Hardy, editor of Success magazine, gives a great analogy in his talk, “Making the Shift”, which you can listen to on our Training page - he says, if someone offered you $20 to walk across a plank two feet off the ground, would you do it? Maybe.

But what if the plank was two stories off the ground in between two buildings? Would you still do it? Probably not.

But what if the opposite building was on fire and your child was in the burning building and the only way to get your child out of the danger was to walk that plank?
