“Most people are etching out a living and only a handful of people are designing a life”
This is such a powerful statement and one we often don’t take the time to consider that carefully. After many years of etching out a living, we are finally ready to design a life for ourselves and our children. And when we can do it, our children have that example as another way of looking at life and making informed choices about their own pathways in life.
Michael Clouse is an inspiration!
We were fortunate to hear Michael speak at the annual Isagenix Convention on the Gold Coast recently. Michael gave an awesome talk about Leadership.
Before I share his message, I’ll firstly introduce this amazing and very entertaining man.
Michael Clouse is a professional Network Marketer. He is recognised as one of the top twenty Network Marketing Trainers in the world today. His background spans over 25 years in the industry. He is an Author, having written several terrific books. His book “Future Choice” shows readers why Network Marketing may be their best career move (encourage your teenagers to read this one before they head off to Uni!). Michael came from a disadvantaged home, yet has managed to become super successful.
Early in his career, Michael studied the most successful network marketers around the world. He then modelled himself upon their habits and mindsets.
Michael is “time rich” and “money rich”. He now devotes 300 days a year to himself and his family and for 65 days to work and giving back to society.
Michael explains that we all need time and money, and we need these two things in balance. What most people do is they give up time in order to get money. Throughout their lives they work hard in a job or small business, to bring home the bacon. As a result they are very time poor although they may have increasing money. It is only later in life that they increase their time; however, their income drops.
People will argue that they have little choice. They have families to raise, mortgages to pay and expenses. They need to work! In our world, this may be true….but not so in an Entrepreneur’s world.
How is it that many wealthy people have managed to attain this balance? Well, we need to look at how they’ve created “time freedom?”
Wealthy people can buy time. This can include getting the house cleaned, or paying someone to do the accounts, or getting a wonderful cook in……….all to allow them to spend time with the ones they love and share experiences with the ones they love. You get the picture.
It’s quite amazing how many of the wealthy come from humble and often disadvantaged beginnings. Michael Clouse was one of those people! And he, along with others like him had to start somewhere.
There is a solution to this time-money balance…
According to Michael, the solution is Networking Marketing! In fact, many wealthy celebrities agree that Network Marketing is a terrific vehicle for growing a big business on the back of an established Global Company. Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump and Warren Buffett are three mega tycoons who talk about network marketing being a terrific vehicle for wealth creation without much outlay. It’s accessible to everyone.
Michael says if you do it right then most people can grow a big business and work less and less time.
“Success leaves clues!” Study success and you will see the game principles. Here is a selection of success principles that Michael understands and uses in his own life. He studied successful people to learn their habits…
Network Marketing Success Principles
Get into the game and then stay in the game.
Figure out what’s in it for you and then commit! You will meet challenges and have to overcome barriers. Being fully committed will get you through.
Focus on the fundamentals.
With a networking business these are:
- Connecting with people.
- Presenting to people.
- When they say yes, take the time to teach them how to run their business.
“Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing!”
Stick to the system that works. That is
Tell your story! Ask yourself today, “How many times am I going to tell my story?”
Use the tools. The company provides all the tools. So use them.
Have an interest in “being better tomorrow than you were yesterday.”
Be sincere and recognise every accomplishment publically and privately. Recognise yourself, the company and your team.
Praise- “Babies cry for it and men die from it!”
Michael Clouse teaches and uses these simple principles. He himself has built million dollar networking businesses and he has personally mentored people to be networking Millionaires.
Take the amazing Lynn Hagedorn (Isagenix), who went from zero to millionaire in only fourteen months!
This weekend we will again be attending Michael Clouse’s training in Perth. We can’t wait to learn more from this great leader and hilarious speaker!
Kaitlin our eldest daughter, is coming along too! We figure that it is a tremendous opportunity for her to learn about success from a successful person. Network Marketing is a career option worth knowing about.
It simply broadens the choices a young person has.
If you are interested in coming along as well, contact us and we will get you booked in. You don’t need to be an Isagenix Business Builder to see Michael Clouse Speak. In fact, it is open to anyone.
