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.

Top Coach Explains How Young Living is Transforming MLM

Author of The Four Year Career and industry leader for several decades, Richard Bliss Brooke, tells why he is now building his business inside Young Living!

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?

Why We Changed the Name to HML TEAM

Greetings Faithful Young Living Friends!

If you are wondering why we changed our name on Facebook, there is a good story behind it. Here is the explanation:

What does it mean to be Team Young Living?

I will start with a story you probably already know. It is the story of Nike and the Air Jordan high-top basketball shoe. 

Air Jordan is still the top selling shoe in the world and Michael Jordan still makes $60mil a year on commissions even though he hasn’t played basketball since 1993. 

Did Jordan design the shoe or know anything about shoes? No. The point is Nike and Jordan became an unstoppable team because they cooperated on the deal of a lifetime.
