    131: Stop Teaching and Start Coaching to Create More Leaders

    131: Stop Teaching and Start Coaching to Create More Leaders

    Are you struggling to create strong, independent leaders on your team?
    Learning how to become an effective coach is an absolute MUST if you want to build a NM business that someday gives you TOTAL FREEDOM.
    As a matter of fact, for many of you this is the missing ingredient to the growth of your business and life right now.
    Right now you might be thinking, “I’m a great coach to my team members.  I’m always teaching them new strategies and instructing them how to grow their businesses.”
    However, you need to know that there’s a big difference between teaching and coaching.
    Most network marketing leaders that I’ve worked with are good teachers, but horrible coaches.
    Teaching is mostly concerned with the acquisition of new knowledge and is usually done in a group setting.
    Coaching on the other hand is focused on development. It is having the support that one needs to achieve a level of success in your business. 
    Personally, in my own business, for a very long time I was stuck. I had so many great people with all the potential in the world fizzle out and I didn’t understand why. What I didn’t realize is that I was missing a critical skill - COACHING.
    My inability to be an effective coach to the people on my team was a huge factor in what was holding me back. But once I finally understood all of this and learned how to coach my team..and not just teach…my business and life began to change dramatically.
    So, join me in this episode as I share the skill of coaching, how it changed my life and business, and the two key concepts on how to be an effective coach.
    Next Level Leadership, my high-level coaching program for successful network marketing leaders wanting to scale their business BEYOND 6-FIGURES, is open now for the first time ever! www.nextlevelleadership.com

    130: I've Exhausted my Warm Market, Now What?! #AskBob

    130: I've Exhausted my Warm Market, Now What?! #AskBob

    In this new podcast episode of #askBob, I answer 3 questions submitted by listeners, including:
    What do you do when you’ve exhausted your warm market? How do you prospect people on FB you’re connected with - but don’t really know? What do you do when someone doesn’t respond to your reach out?  
    What do you do when you’ve exhausted your warm market?
    This is a common thing I see where network marketers think that they had already tapped out any opportunity with people they know so they shift to their cold market.
    They turn to social media and try to learn attraction marketing, and they end up complicating the entire process with funnels and lead magnets and complex systems. 
    Armed with the excuse of “I’ve exhausted my warm market,” I see network marketers think that figuring out how to prospect in the cold market is the answer. 
    However, the cold market is NOT the answer.  In this podcast, I dig into my personal opinion on why recruiting in the cold market is not the solution to your ‘burned out warm market’ problem.
     
    How do you prospect people on FB you’re connected with, but also don’t really know?
    A bit mistake people make when trying to prospect in the cold market is pitching to people too early in the process.
    They talk about their company, business, and product on the first message because they think that it’s secretive and weird to not just share right away.
    What we need to understand is that messaging people on social media is the exact same as having a conversation with them face-to-face.
    The key is to make your messaging conversational. It's more than you just making a sale; it's you being able to change their life through your products. 
     
    What do you do when someone doesn’t respond to your reach out?
    When prospecting, we always seem to assume a negative outcome, like “they’re going to roll their eyes at me” or “what if they talk about me behind my back.” 
    It’s these negative scenarios (RED LIGHTS) that we imagine that’s stopping us from reaching out and following up with our prospects.
    I want you to learn how to create different and more empowering stories (GREEN LIGHTS).
    Build your faith and always assume a positive intent.
    If they don’t respond on the follow up, then you need to course correct. Do a different approach like commenting on their posts on Instagram, or like the stuffs they post on social media.
    Here’s the thing, it’s all about your willingness to take action despite your fears. The only limitation to creating the life of your dreams and the business that you want is the story that you tell yourself about how it is or isn’t possible.

    129: {Live Coaching} What Do You Do If Your Team Falls Apart?

    129: {Live Coaching} What Do You Do If Your Team Falls Apart?

    I’ve seen this a LOT in network marketing. 
    You join a company, and there’s excitement for the product and the opportunity.  Your excitement is contagious, and you also work your business consistently, sharing about the products and the opportunity with anyone who will listen.
    Your team grows fast!  You have that momentum that every network marketer craves!
    And then, things begin to slow down.  Team members begin going MIA and not returning messages.  Your recruiting and team volume numbers begin sliding backwards.
    Your team (and business!) is falling apart!
    In today’s podcast, I have a live coaching session with Sasha, who has been going through that exact same situation.
    Sasha is a brand new member of my Legacy Leadership Academy. She had a fast start in her company and had a lot of success.
    However, over the last year things have fallen apart. Leaders left her team, and there has been lots of complaining going on, which resulted to a toxic team environment.
    Instead of excited and moving forward, she now feels frustrated, has lost confidence in herself, and feels like she’s stuck in the past. And on top of all of that, she doesn’t have a strong upline that she can lean on for support. 
    Join me in this live coaching session, as I give Sasha some key insights on how she can take control over her thoughts and continue building a the team of her dreams!

    128: The 5 Phases of Network Marketing Leadership

    128: The 5 Phases of Network Marketing Leadership

    Today is part 2 of last week’s episode where I reveal our brand new ‘Success Path’ that we’ve created for all of you called ‘The 5 Phases of Network Marketing Leadership.’
    Do you know EXACTLY where you are at on your journey to success? 
    If Point A is the day you joined your network marketing company and Point B is where you want to be – enjoying a life of Total Freedom - where EXACTLY are you at in between those two points?
    It is so important that you are clear on EXACTLY where you are in your journey to success.
    And that is why I’m so excited to launch the first EVER leadership assessment for network marketing!!
    One of the things I’ve always struggled with was our new students never had a way to clearly see the vision of what we’re helping them do.
    All the training we do is great, but I started to notice a ton of confusion and overwhelm because there was no simple, clear plan to help them get exactly from Point A to Point B in their business.
    So we created the first ever network marketing quiz to help people just like you determine exactly which of 5 stages you are at in your network marketing journey.  Then, we can give you the exact steps and action plan you need to follow to attain Total Freedom.
    In this week’s podcast, I share with you more details about the 5 Phases of Network Marketing Leadership and how taking the quiz will tell you exactly which of the 5 phases you are currently in….and more importantly, exactly what you need to do to get to the next phase!
    Make sure you and your team members take the quiz now by visiting http://www.yourvirtualupline.com/quiz
    Once you’ve completed the quiz, I will email you a page with all of your results. For each of the 5 phases, I’ve put together a specific training plan with a series of actionable steps to help you ‘get unstuck’ and start moving forward.
    Also, make sure and join my 4-part live free training series called ‘4 Steps to Creating a Full-Time Income in Network Marketing’ which begins on January 9th.

    127: The Greatest Gift of Network Marketing

    127: The Greatest Gift of Network Marketing

    Today I share with you the greatest gift network marketing has to offer….and a HUGE gift for you inside!
    This episode is the first of a two-part series. And whether you are brand new to network marketing or a seasoned leader, I believe this is something that will have you looking at your business in a very different way than you ever have before!

    Ask yourself these questions: What does success look like for you? What is the ultimate goal for your business?
    One mistake network marketers make is not having a clear vision for their life and business.
    Most of us simply follow someone else's definition of success, and then we later find out, their definition wasn’t exactly what we wanted in life.
    And then we end up frustrated, unfulfilled, and miss the greatest gift that this profession has to offer - Total Freedom.
    There are three types of freedom in life: Financial Freedom, Time Freedom, and Personal Freedom.
    And when someone has Total Freedom, they have all three!
    And for most people, they have Total Freedom because they are an entrepreneur.
    But, what does it actually look like to have financial, time AND personal freedom?
    And what do you have to do to actually attain TOTAL freedom in your life?
    This is exactly what I share with you in this podcast episode!
    And what my team is working on to help you achieve Total Freedom in a step-by-step process in 2020!

    126: How to Handle a Leader Leaving to Join Another Company

    126: How to Handle a Leader Leaving to Join Another Company

    There’s a very delicate topic that we leaders have to deal with, which is a byproduct of building a big business, and that is how to handle when a leader leaves to join another company.
    One of your leaders leaving for another company is one of the hardest things you will face in your network marketing career. In that moment, it feels like your entire business is falling apart and that everything you’ve worked so hard for is suddenly being destroyed.
    But I want you to understand that how you handle this, how you respond and react, will have a far greater impact on your long-term success than that person actually leaving.
    Our usual reaction is we feel revengeful. We start trashing the person, trying to undermine their credibility so that no one on their team leaves to go join them. But I want you to know that going into attack mode is a bad idea.
    In this podcast episode, I share with you tips on how to handle these situations, why as leaders we need to lead with character and love, and some actionable steps that will definitely keep you out of the drama.
