No Excuses Summit in Las Vegas, NV

I drove from San Diego to Las Vegas with top income earner and friend Jim Chao.

Jim Chao

The Venetian

If you haven’t heard of the No Excuses Summit in Vegas from the news or a blog like Vegas Guy, you probably weren’t online or you’re still wondering what you’re doing with that old computer that can barely push Windows 95. Just Kidding :-). The lineup for the No Excuses Summit was so amazing that if I didn’t make it down there, I knew I’d miss a ton of value from these online marketing Gurus. If you have no interest in making money online with a home business, I completely understand this is not for you, but wait… there is more :-)…. In case you are wondering what you missed, I took some awesome notes for you. After all, I know you were too busy to make it out, but this may have been the largest Internet Network Marketing summit in MLM history so I will tell you about it. [Read Closely]

The No Excuses Summit was put together by Raymond Fong and Ferny Ceballos and they brought together the biggest names in the Internet based network marketing. I am talking about big hitters such as Jimmy Davis, Justin Christianson, Jeff Learner, Jairek Robbins (Tony Robbins’ son), Chris and Josephine Gross, Norbert Orlewicz (co-owner of MLSP), Brian Finale (co-owner of My Lead System Pro), Tim Erway, Mike Dillard (owner of Magnetic Sponsoring and BetterNetworker.com), Jonathan Budd, Cedrick Harris (The crazy dude I always talk about in a good way), Mark Hoverson, Todd Falcone, David Schwind & Jim Yaghi, Katie Freiling (The beautiful face behind the Unified Tribe), Joseph O’Day and Adam Holland. A rare gathering I know but get this, you’re gonna love the nuggets I’m about to share.

The Importance of Being at Events

I learned from a mentor a long time ago “Cesar, if you want to be successful you must be at events and hang out with other like-minded type people.” That sentence stuck with me to this day.

The major reasons I went to the event: 

1) My team was down there for my primary business and I didn’t want to be the faceless guy that hid behind the computer and didn’t connect.
2) I wanted to bring myself new nuggets and be able to teach those new nuggets to people like yourself
3) To grow my self brand image. They say that networking outside of the event doors is just as important as inside with the training.  I wanted to take pictures with the speakers without the crowds during breaks.

Online Marketers Connect

I come from the old school ways of doing business. BELLY TO BELLY! Can you believe it? You had to actually open your mouth and speak to someone to make a connection. I still use this method. The internet has taken away (some of) the pain of rejection for some people. I have found that it is rare for a computer geek like me to be able to interact with people socially as I have been a guru on computers for many years (since 1983). I do enjoy and love people though. Money and happiness doesn’t come from a computer. It comes from interacting with people and connecting with them to build your trust. So with that said, online marketing does work with the notion that you also connect with people offline.

Let’s get right into it.

Day 1 of the No Excuses Summit (Friday 9th, 2010)

Jimmy Davis says he was trying for 14 years. “Trying is failing with honor.” Jimmy Davis opened it up talking about marketing funnel systems. He is known as the “My Story Marketing” guru. Jimmy said that if you want to convert your traffic, you must understand funnels.

An example that he showed us was something like this:

Landing Page (short video)

| Business Presentation

| Testimony Videos (could be for you or your business, preferably YOU)

| Have your assistant call the prospect. (Could be you with funky voice lol, mom, wife, anybody but you)

| You call them

Pretty neat concept. You can hire a virtual assistant to do this. You can find a virtual assistant for cheap and interview them at ODesk. Having someone call your prospect first before they speak to you is such a powerful concept. Let’s think about this for a second. It allows you to be the hunted instead of the hunter because of it making you look like someone who is of professional caliber.

What is your why?
Why are you in the company that you’re in. What determines who you are, what you do, and you feel is the future you are living into.

To make money online you do 2 things:

1) Send Traffic

2) Convert Traffic

To make money NOW you send more traffic.

Just like knowing that diet and exercise will help you lose weight, knowing that you need to send traffic and convert traffic is a small piece of the puzzle. He says you need to find a Mentor because that is what Top Earners do. Avoid Advisors because they will lose you. As you will see this information develop, I think there is “more than meets the eye” (yes I am a fanatic of 80s Transformers 🙂 ).  What I mean is this, I listen to these gurus give some awesome value content and most of the stuff I gathered was a mix of theory and practical. You definately need both to connect with your audience.

Team Meet-up

After the Friday Night session ended around 8:30pm, I got together with my team to do some masterminding. It blew me away seeing a “secret audio CD” that was created for many members of the team to be passed out. This CD contained some nuggets of why there is such a shake up in network marketing with two online gurus. It invited the prospect to a special event we held on Saturday at 9pm when the events were finished. It exposed our business to many folks and I was even sitting next to an offline marketing guru with 600,000 reps in his primary company. He liked our concept so much. Definitely someone I do not want to let go of.

Party at the Luxor

The Luxor

Soon after, I got invited to a private event at the Luxor. It wasn’t crowded at all by the time I got there. Actually, I got a bit lost with my buddy Jim Chao. Jim and I drove out together since he moved pretty close to me. Eventually, we found the event  in a private rented room and networking was taking place. I met up some of the speakers and got to exchange ideas. It was amazing. Katie Freiling, Ryan Dunn, Mark Hoverson, Norbert from mlsp, Ray Higdon, Tracy Walker and a whole lot of other Network Marketers. All the pizza was gone lol (which I probably shouldn’t have eaten anyway) but I had such an amazing time planting my seeds and connecting. I shared with some of the leaders my secrets of the Craiglist Loop Hole I found. I got home at around 2:30am to get some rest.

No Excuses Summit in Las Vegas, NV (Saturday 10th, 2010)

So I got labeled pretty quick from people recognizing my face online as “The Craiglist Guy” from just one webinar I did. I thought it was pretty funny really, but imagine this. You create a product from connecting with 10 people that think like you and have a different niche of skill then you do and now you’re known in the circle of influence. I actually used this to my leverage when someone asked what I was currently working on, I said “I found a loop hole in Craigslist and it’s working for marketing.” Do you think they want to know about it? This is pretty amazing to say the least and I’m focus to get my product out ASAP! So stay tuned for the release of “Craigslist Ad Power” here shortly. (make sure to put your name and email at the top right to get into my list for release date)

I just have to make this side note. I have been marketing online as a professional since January 2010 using attraction marketing. That’s only 7  months! Granted I have been around the computer industry for quite a few years but I did not know how to properly market online until I plugged into a system. That system is MLSP.

Norbert Orlewicz and me

Norbert Orlewicz is the co-founder of mlsp and he put on quite the show. He just announced the release of the Platinum Version which adds a lot more value to your online marketing like video hosting (since the YouTube Slaps) and much more. They even build and setup your MLSP for you (Check out back office for more information on MLSP gurus setting up your system).

If you’re new to online marketing you may be use to the phrase “Have you made any money yet?” and you have to sit there and explain that you’re on your way and you hear that pause of (hmmmm). Well Norbert gave out a GOLDEN NUGGET! He said to basically answer “No, I have not yet but I am generating leads now and I can teach you how.” Isn’t that amazing?

Now if you cannot say that you’re generating leads, you can follow what I did and join their program here. Whether you do or not use the system, you must find a way to generate leads so you can use that answer so that you can position yourself with leads. Norbert also brought up a valid point which has been working for my team which is, don’t expect people to use MLSP just because they signed up, but give them direction. As I outlined here in this video: [Video].  Norbert said “Give directions rather than ask them to do something.” Some of us B.S. around the bush and try to kiss up to our prospects or new recruits. Your time is valuable and you are ALWAYS on the run but you will spend 15 minutes to support them and coach them. That’s where you deserve to be.

Brian Fanale was up next:

Brian Fanale

Brian Finale was up next and he is one of the founders with My Lead System Pro. He said a great line from the Joker in the latest Batman, “If you are good at something you expect to be paid”, I love it! He gave instructions on starting to run your own webinars as soon as possible that are packed with value. Most use GoToMeeting,

Brian gave out some good links too that you might want to checkout:

KeepVid.com – Downloads youtube videos (Disclaimer: you want to have permission before you do this or you might get into some trouble)

search.twitter.com – search Twitter for people that you want to connect with and might be in your niche

gravatar.com – If you are leaving comments on people’s blogs, you want to look professional and have a picture show, this will automate for you every time you leave a comment on blog sites Now, some of you out there are already generating sales through affiliate marketing.

Brian gave a million dollar tip here, pay attention to this one. If you have someone on your list buying products from you, put them in a special list. Send them cookies, send them gifts, but take care of them and you might just have a lifelong income stream. I am going to start doing this as I have generated a lot of income in affiliate marketing but have not taken special care of those who purchased from me a lot. Brian said to get better at Facebook PPC to check out Perry Marshall. He shed some light on this sometimes misunderstood marketing strategy and recommended sending Facebook PPC traffic to a Fan page that has an optin. His company is going to start doing this for members of My Lead System automatically without any programming on the side of the user so that is pretty awesome as I have no clue how to create an optin for a facebook fan page. Some good tips for facebook PPC: – They are tougher on you when you start so don’t start with ads that say MLM, FREE, Get Rich, Etc.

Todd Falcone is a rockstar. I am really glad I connected with him, not only is he a snazzy dresser, he is also a fantastic trainer. He specializes in prospecting, closing and scripts. He gave a great response to that goofball question that we sometimes get, “Is this Network Marketing?” He said to answer it, “Hell Yes, if it wasn’t I wouldn’t touch it!” Isn’t that awesome? He made a great observation in that people will show up to their job every day even if they hate it but they won’t show up for their network marketing opportunity that actually has the potential to make them rich. Why is that? He says because there are no consequences. If you want to create real results in your home business you might want to create consequences for you and your teammates. If you don’t show up to work for three days and don’t call, you will more than likely be fired. Unfortunately, if the same person doesn’t call their upline, show up to meetings or work their home biz, they will get away with no consequences and of course, no real wealth either.

I agree with Todd’s method of the two strikes and you are out philosophy of leaving phone messages for your prospects. Don’t chase, beg or bug them, if they don’t do what they say they are going to do, they also won’t do it if they were in your business. Stop chasing people and stop chasing the signup bonus and look for quality people to work with.

Todd said don’t ever “dabble” with your opportunity. Do it, but don’t dabble or treat it as a hobby. Now, this is a HUGE tip for you guys that are generating leads. Use the information of the lead to build rapport. Let’s look at an example:

Leadname – Joe Prospectson
Cityname – Washington, DC
Phone – 206-206-2062
Email – IeatCornFlakes@gmail.com

What can you do with this instead of just calling them and asking them what they liked about your opportunity? Well, you can use their data to build rapport. Here are a few examples: – Hey Joe, I saw you visited my page, I also see you are in Wash DC, I was just up there, what a great city! How long have you been there?

– Hey Joe, I saw you visited my page, I also see you are in the 206 area code, my friend Brian is a paintball expert up there, he loves it, how do you like it?

– Hey Joe, I saw you visited my page, I also see your last name is prospectson, are you related to a Tony Prospectson that lives in Austin, Texas?

– Hey Joe, I saw you visited my page, I also see you eat cornflakes, I love cornflakes but you must really love them to make it your email address! This business is all about relationships and you start down the path when you create rapport. Then, the man, the myth, stepped up on stage, I am talking about none other than Mike Dillard. Mike Dillard is the creator of Magnetic Sponsoring which is the granddaddy of all network marketing informational products. I honestly do not know one successful network marketer that uses the Internet that has not purchased something from Mike so it was great to meet him. Mike did an open Q&A with the audience and showed why he is who he is. I cannot repeat all the questions and his answers but here is what I got from him:

– Find out why people will buy your product or business – Get rid of your emotional attachment to the outcome of your marketing – Your skillset is the key to your financial future, not your opportunity

– His number one tip is to learn copywriting. There are some pretty expensives courses out there, Mike did this one and it’s solid – Master Copywriting (if you don’t know where to go)

Jonathan Budd

Jonathan Budd is the shaolin monk of Internet Marketing. He was the 22 year punk that came on the internet. I wrote an article on why I joined MLSP over his system. All opinions aside, he is a cool guy and really connected with a positive mindset. He is the founder of the Online MLM Mastery Course that has generated so many successful marketers. I met Jonathan a long time ago through a mutual friend and he is a guy you really want to pay attention to as he is razor sharp. He gave some very solid real world advice on how to get to where you want to go from where you currently are. Here are the highlights: Create Your Own Product 1. Record webinars 2. Interview Top Leaders in the Industry 3. Record Audio at http://audacity.sourceforge.net for free! 4. Write your own ebook and turn it into a PDF.

Jonathan Budd and Cesar Ramirez making up!

You know I have nothing against Jonathan. He is a smart kid and honestly he makes a lot of people angry because of his quick success. I showed him my cell phone on having a number he had from 3 years ago. I asked him, what number is this? He said oh man, that’s like my early years with the reverse funnel system. He says that was such an awesome product. I take back some of the stuff I said about Budd. Just some :-). He’s cool though and we’re like 30 minutes away from each other. Word on the street is he is dating Katie Freiling. I don’t blame him, she’s hot! She’s from my current city, Temecula, CA. Pretty small world I tell you. Thanks Budd for being cool with me champ.

Cedrick Harris

My man Cedrick spoke last at the conference and he ROCKED THE HOUSE! For those that do not know, Cedrick Harris is the number one recruiter in my primary and he the best closer in this industry. This is undisputed so I don’t have to say he is “one of”, he is simply the best. Cedrick covered offline marketing, which, everyone should seriously pay attention to as there are heavy hitters I have enrolled in my business because of the fact that I am not just an online marketer. Cedrick was probably the speaker that generated the most commotion, I am sure that has a lot to do with having such a large amount of his downline in the audience! Great job Cedrick! Cedrick has a product called the 10k Per Month Attraction Marketing Blueprint which I highly endorse. If you haven’t picked it up, you deserve to. It’s a Zero Fluff offline and online marketing system.

After Day 2 of the No Excuses Summit

I was actually masterminding with David Wood on Friday night when I heard about this sneaky tactic. Cedrick and David developed an Audio CD to have me and the rest of the team pass out at the conference on Saturday. This audio CD inviting folks to our 9pm gathering. It was an amazing event. Just look at how many folks here here.

Packed House

I was actually sitting in the back. It was so packed that it started to get kinda hot lol. Fortunately, this created a lot of buzz and over 20 people joined that night. To take a look at the presentation that was shown, watch it here: [Saturday Night Presentation]

What About For Those That Missed It? The No Excuses Summit DVD!

If you couldn’t make it out to this rare event, I highly recommend you pick up The No Excuses Summit DVD. I will inform you all when it is released.

No Excuses Summit in Las Vegas, NV (Sunday 11th, 2010)

The final day of the event.

Katie Freiling and Cesar Ramirez

First up was Tim Erway, Tim worked directly with Mike Dillard on Magnetic Sponsoring and is a copywriting guru. He broke down copywriting in a very easy to understand way. He broke it down to 3 questions you should always ask yourself:
1. Who is your prospect? Be as specific as possible
2. What is their problem?
3. How can you solve it?

He also shared the 8 core motivators that get people to buy things.
1. Make Money
2. Save Money
3. Save Effort
4. Save Time
5. Improve Health
6. Impress Others
7. Increase Pleasure
8. Eliminate Pain

He said you want to work on your headline and make it as specific as possible and irresistible to potential prospects. He recommended the Copywriters Guild to get and learn copywriting in a step-by-step blueprint. I can tell you that after this weekend, copywriting and PPC is my main area I want to improve in as I heard from so many speakers how important they both were.

The next speaker I saw was Katie Freiling. She’s really awesome.  Katie is the founder of the content syndication group called the Utribe, which, I am a member of so I guess I am biased when I say it is awesome. You said if you are serious about social media and Internet marketing you really want to have a blog and always give out great value. She also shared some cool stats:
– 78% of people trust their peers when making a buying decision but only trust 14% of ads
– For the first time in 23 years, Pepsi dropped their superbowl commercial to spend $20 million on social media

Katie shared a really cool resource that I did not know about and that is Google Profiles. You can setup your google profiles that could possibly be featured on search results and it is free, you can see mine at http://www.google.com/profiles/cesarin.ramirez

Katie said something I definitely agree with. She said to focus on your personal growth and the money will come. This is quite different than most as they really chase the money and hope it comes to them. She also said to get yourself into a personal success routine which is another thing I always teach. I blog, meditate and write affirmations every single day and always suggest people they create a routine for themselves. Katie says to brand yourself you have to become a giver of great value and to be consistent. She says your blog is your central hub to your branding and your marketing. Don’t just pitch your business but have people wanting to hear from you and the value you bring.

The Bad Boys – David Schwind and Jim Yaghi

OK, you have to know that these guys are totally insane but also brilliant. I had the opportunity to meet both of these guys. I spent time with David Schwind later that night with a bunch of guys at the bar. Both are absolute geniuses when it comes to driving traffic and copywriting. They started their event with Marilyn Mansons Sweet Dreams song and being escorted on stage by models. They then asked who wanted a drink of scotch and had people come up on stage and sit in chairs during their entire presentation while drinking scotch, crazy right? (I will post the video up soon.)

Their content really gave me some great ideas. Jim shared a killer strategy he uses when formulating his emails. He says before he sends out a mass email trying to sell an affiliate product he checks his gmail where he constantly receives emails from other marketers and he just does the opposite of what he sees. If all the subject lines of the emails coming from everyone else are long, he writes a short subject line and vice versa. Freaking sweet!

He shared another great tip in trying to locate people that might be interested in what you are doing. He says to google your most descriptive phrase that describes what you do or what you are trying to sell and in google click the social link toward the bottom to see what people are on social media and most associated with your business and connect with them. You also want to use the related searches button when doing your research on your niche and if you are going to do any PPC.

David made a great distinction in saying that an ad is not meant to sell but to get a click. I see a lot of ads out there trying to sell from the ad, which, makes most people not want to click them. David also said never to outsource anything you don’t know very well. I totally agree with that too as I have done this with things I did not know well and it did not work out.

My Overall Review of the No Excuses Summit

To be frank with you, I have been upset that knowing computers for over 20 years, I knew very little about setting myself up for self branding. The power of using MLSP is that it gets me not only the education but the circle of influence on the top leaders in the industry. It was awesome, as this was the very first Internet marketing conference I have ever attended. I realized how much faster I could have been generating more leads and income online if I had started attending these sort of events sooner. Here is what I got out of it:

1) Educate yourself at getting at least 50 leads a day with PPC (Pay Per Click Advertising) (Google, Facebook ,etc) More on that at MLSP.
2) Once you get great at #1 work on building awesome articles using the Copywrighter Guild
3) Think of methods of putting different things together to develop your own products to fuel upfront commisions and make it an affiliate for others to get your stuff out there

Ferny Ceballos and Me

Honestly, I appreciate Ray Higdon for taking the time to really think of me and be on his webinar and share my Craigslist Ad Power Secrets. The product will be release VERY soon. If it wasn’t for Ray, I wouldn’t have been labeled as “The Craigslist Guy” in Vegas. It allowed me to connect with leaders and speakers and their ultimate question for me was “What are you working on?” And I told them, I found a loop whole in Craigslist and i’m developing a product for it. They were loving me. I feel blessed.

New School Network Marketing

Does Attraction Marketing Engineering really work? I developed that name because I see a lot of people using their catchy phrases. I sum it all up to this. “Attraction Marketing Engineering” is taking bite size pieces of different elements on the web and you developing your own concepts. You will absolutely unequivocally find your niche as you stay consistent in developing your list.

Where do you start? Watch this video closely so you can see what the next steps are in your education of Web 2.0. The name of the system I put in place is called My Lead System Pro (MLSP). Why does MLSP work so well? Is it a scam? Absolutely not! It has allowed me to build my list of over 300 people in less than 4 months. I have built great relationships with people because of this system. People that are network marketers are seeking me out and not just people who are already working in the business but newcomers are coming to me as well. For instance, I just did a five part one on one training with a guy who is doing internet marketing part-time right now, he is a OSHA safety inspections supervisor right now but he would like to leave that job within the next year. I was very flattered when he sought me out for training. Essentially you are becoming the hunted instead of the hunter. We know that 95% of the people in network marketing are failing because of:

1) Not enough people to talk to.
2) Not enough money in their pocket.

So the solution is this…

1) You will learn about why Funded Proposals are important
2) Building a Powerful List
3) Building a relationship with that list.
4) Profiting off Affiliates.

Documentation beats conversation any day. Take a look at my back office and what I have done to grow my list. If you follow my training you will absolutely duplicate what I have done. The first step is taking action and following the building process outlined in this video. Enjoy:

Why Network Marketing?

As I write this, I write this with passion of love.  Many people that know me have known Cesar Ramirez as a hard worker. Someone who never gives up wanting to achieve more and never settling for less. As I write this, I’m lying in bed on a Monday morning being inspired by my good friend Ray Higdon on his post about connecting with his father after 13 years.

I am often asked why do I support and stick around the Network Marketing industry so long. It hit me this morning that I find myself being me and free to be whom I want to be to develop myself more and connect with like minded people.

I don’t know if you can relate to this but many years ago I was finding myself really disgusted with the job industry with all the multilevel interviews and conducting background searches. You know, you go to school, to get a degree, to hopefully find a job that will make you a comfortable living. I found that job and it got outsourced over seas the day of my graduation.

You know it was a cycle of never ending selling myself to get another job that wasn’t a recruiting agency like those recruiting agencies in Hawaii I heard about. I was like “man, if I have to keep going through this cycle and depending on one stream of income to take care of my family, I’m just not going to feel safe living this way.”

So I started to educate myself on businesses and what made great people like Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Steve Jobs, etc successful. I found one similar thing in common, they all dropped out of college and they had every reason not to fail. They had a burning desire to succeed. Logically, it makes sense why I picked those three names. They are in my industry. I am a Computer Engineer by degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I am a business minded person by nature because of the choices I made and circumstances that I was around. I started my first computer service company in 2006 after being let go from a corporate job because I beat my manager at a Foosball game (seriously he wasn’t happy and had it out for me to let me go).

I knew that if I would bring value to the market place, I would become successful. On the contrary, it also made one big change in my life because I was going completely against what anyone in my family was doing. I was told many times to get a corporate job to get benefits. My mentality was making more money and buying my own benefits. Creating my own circumstances instead of depending on the government, corporate, etc. A slight edge shift in thinking.

Anytime I would talk to my family about the benefits of being in business for yourself, they could not agree with me because they have not experienced anything different then a 9-5 job. So with that said relationships were gambled. Many would not support my decision and even though they knew I was in business, many would not hire me to take care of their computer tasks. They would hire someone else to do the work and honestly, I was offended. Would you not agree if you grew up with someone, looking up to them and they turn around and ignored your efforts to achieve more that they would support you? Instead they ignore you for achieving more and that creates tension and disgust.

Here’s my advice to everyone that has gone through this adversity.  The best thing you can do for your life and business is to love those people that treat you and your business like that twice as much. You see, it’s your business. When you’re in business for yourself, it’s your life. The employee mindset folks don’t understand that because they punch in and punch out to go home to complete hopelessness of repeating that cycle day after day. So if you’ve ever gotten the “why do you always talk about your business life around me?”  question.  Simply say because people do business with people and that’s my life. People don’t do business with companies. Money comes from people and referrals come from people. That’s life.

Why Network Marketing?

I’ve been involved with Network Marketing since 1999 and have had some great success. They say anyone making over $1000 a month part-time is successful. Why do I choose to support the pyramid scheme systems (as the dream killers call it). Simply because it gives the “Average Joe” a chance at developing a business. A “system” that is already proven to work if you follow the recipe. Almost like a McDonald’s without the 1.2 Million Dollar investment.

Here in California, it costs $800+ a year just to keep your corporation going. In a Network Marketing type business, you don’t have to worry about incorporating. All of the headaches of opening up a business are taken care of for you. A S.Y.S.T.E.M. – Save YourSelf  Time Energy and Money.

Networking Marketing starts with friends and family. Of course. Any business that you open up should involve the people that you love. If they get offended simply state, “look, I’m sharing this with you because if and when I’m growing my business and making some radical money at it, I want you to know I thought about you. If you found out from someone else and I didn’t share it with you, you’d be twice as offended.”

Network Marketing is not new. It started in 1890 with a company called Avon. They are still in business to this day. I support every single one of these companies and endorse them because of “what makes a leader shine.” We all “want” to win. The problem with the majority of the people out there is that we’ve been conditioned to lose.

There is a book called “The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson”.  I have the audio book. It is absolutely unequivocally the most important book to read when you are first getting started in developing your life, business, health and goals. If you haven’t read it or heard the audio book, I encourage you to do so now. You can find it at Amazon or any major book store. If you’re a part of my team, I give every single one of my recruits a copy of the book or audio which ever they prefer.

If you made it this far. You’re a winner. Keep me in your prayers as I will do in mine.

Always with love,

Cesar Ramirez.

HOW TO SELL TOOTHBRUSHES

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited.
Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on

productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30,” she said

proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and
I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

“Very good,” said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next:

“I sold magazines,” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that
magazines would keep them up on current events.”

“Very good, Jenny,” said the teacher..

Eventually, it was Little Greg’s turn.

The teacher held her breath …

Little Greg walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of
cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467,” he said.

“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

“Toothbrushes,” said Little Greg.

“Toothbrushes!” echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough
tooth brushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town,” said Little Greg, “I set up a Dip &

Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”

They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog shit!”

Then I would say, “It is dog shit.  Wanna buy a toothbrush?”

I used the governmental approach of giving you something shitty for free,
and then making you pay to get the shitty taste out of your mouth.

Success in MLM is a Journey Not A Destination

Too often times I see a new person get into the industry of Network Marketing/Direct Sales/MLMs and they quit if they are not making money within 3-5 months. This can be quite a sad but true reality. A lot of times, people quit because they either don’t believe in themselves, they don’t believe in the company, or they don’t believe in the product. You have to understand that this industry takes time. Not everyone is an overnight success.

When I first saw this industry, I was 16 years old, and too young to be a rep. All I can remember is circles on a white board, and if you get 3 people in, and those 3 get 3 people in and so on, I’d be rich! What you come to realize is that it works if and only if you are mentally prepared. This industry, sales, is definitely a mindset. It’s a belief in you. 95% of this industry is YOU. You’re the missing link to making this work. If you did exactly what your mentor told you to do, and you got out of your own way, you’d be rich. Wouldn’t you? But there is one thing and one thing only that I’ve seen stop the average person wanting to make money in this industry…and that is…. “Procrastination”.  Their “Why”, reason why, they are seeking more is not big enough. Until that is determined and define on paper, the growth of their business will be minimal.

Oh yeah. Let me tell you. I am one to speak from experience. There are days when I do not want to prospect and pick up the phone. But wait! If I sleep at night knowing I did not share with someone my wonderful opportunity, I’d sleep feeling bad for myself and not a great feeling. When I sign up a rep, it’s because I’m in my game… my energy of juice is flowing and my mindset is on point that what I have is by far the best thing since slice bread.

So often times I hear it said over and over again. People do business with people they love and trust. When I got started in this industry in 1998, I had zero influence. I actually didn’t have any influence on anyone because I couldn’t see why people would buy me. You may be asking yourself that same question. Why would anyone buy and trust me? Here’s your answer. Because you are a great person, you are honest, and you are a “millionaire in training.” As a matter of fact, I encourage you to buy that license frame because you are a millionaire in training. You may have heard the phrase “fake it until you make it.” That is a phrase that I believe was developed by the broke mindset folks. Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, says, “you must see yourself as if you are already a millionaire.” Living the millionaire lifestyle. Tipping, posture, confidence and professionalism like a millionaire.  Avoid the poverty mindset and thinking the “lack of” whatever you are seeking. Until you got this ironed out, you will stay exactly where you are at because you choose it.

This is by far the most passionate topic that I have come to share because of how much I have changed over the years. It took me hitting close to rock bottom for me to take action in my finances. I chose this path even with a strong college degree. I did not want the lifestyle of a cubicle employee. It was not me and I came to realize that my time was worth more than anyone can hire me for at a hourly rate in this area. If you look up the word psychologically unemployable, you’ll see a picture of me :-).

I programmed myself to be this way. I had to because of where I saw the economy heading. We are at the right place at the right time in our industry. People right now around you are seeking more. More time, more money, more charities, etc. We live in a push button type society that we want things now and instant. The microwave shaped this out and if people don’t get that answer now, then they quit. Give yourself 3-5+ years to grow. It’s not only the money but the person that you will become in the process.

In closing, I heard it said once before. People die at age 25 (quit on their dreams) but they don’t get buried until they are 65. One of the saddest things you can do is give this industry a few months and quit. But people will spend $20-$100k+ to go to school for 4 years to get a degree to be a slave for 40years to someone else’s empire. 80% of the millionaires are made from the industry of Network Marketing. Don’t quit on your dreams. You deserve to receive it all. Become a student of this industry and make it happen.

The ultimate question that you can answer for yourself (let me know if you wish) is “If money was NOT an issue, what would you be doing with your time.” ß that question will absolutely open up the Dream Machine (your subconscious) and get your juices flowing again. Stay tune for the next step.
