USANA DIAMOND DIRECTOR SHARES THE SECRETS OF HIS SUCCESS

USANA DIAMOND DIRECTOR SHARES THE SECRETS OF HIS SUCCESS IN NETWORK MARKETING / MLM

 

A short interview (video) with Sam Renga, USANA Diamond Director and Million Dollar Club member talks about what he has learnt from Nanncy Long in network marketing / MLM 16 years ago..These secrets has helped him build a big and strong team with USANA and become a successful network marketeer today.

The 4 Secrets of Being A Successful Network Marketeer / MLM

  • Determine what you want.
  • Decide what you are willing to give up or reschedule to get what you want.
  • Associate with people who will help you get what you want.
  • Have a Plan that works and work the plan.

Sam was one of Nancy Long‘s downline in Nancy’s first MLM company 16 years ago. Previous to this he had no experience in Network Marketing and did not take any supplements.

He became inspired when he read/listened to Randy Gage’s “Escape the Rat Race” book recommended by Nancy Long. That led him on a long journey to be an expert in this industry by reading as many of the network marketing classics available in the market.

Though they are competitors in the network marketing industry, they have stayed in touch and have mutual respect for one another.

Sam also talked about Nancy Long’s forthcoming new book about how to become successful in direct sales based on her over 30 years experience in this dynamic and robust industry. An industry that has made her millions of dollars and take her to the top of the 3 previous direct sales companies she’s been involved in. We will announce details of Nanncy‘s new book here when details are available.

Thank you Sam for being generous in your sharing.

MOTIVATIONAL OR MANAGEMENT MODE IN NETWORK MARKETING

GETTING INTO THE MOTIVATIONAL OR MANAGEMENT MODE

– ONE OF THE DEADLY SINS IN NETWORK MARKETING

by Nancy Long

MOTIVATIONAL OR MANAGEMENT MODE ONE OF THE DEADLY SINS IN NETWORK MARKETING by Nancy Long
MOTIVATIONAL OR MANAGEMENT MODE ONE OF THE DEADLY SINS IN NETWORK MARKETING by Nancy Long

When a team member gets 20 or more people in their team, they have a tendency to get into a motivational or management mode. The excuse for doing this is to “help” their team members. This often is no more than giving advice on how to do the business – some advice of which may be faulty industry practice which could do harm than good to your organisation. If the leader does not have much experience or do not sponsor or recruit  builders and  customers in sufficient numbers, the team’s activity and morale will start to decline.

So what are the consequences of going into a motivational or management mode?

THIS IS A COPYCAT BUSINESS

If your team members see that you are not actively sponsoring or recruiting, they will also take the easy way out and do the same as that it is far easier to be a “motivator” or “team manager” than to be a recruiter or sponsor.

TEAM ACTIVITY DECLINES

Sponsoring and getting new customers is the life blood of the network marketing business. When distributors do not build a big enough team, they do not earn enough money and this usually leads to people quitting.

HARDER TO RECRUIT IF THE TEAM LACKS THE ABILITY TO BRING IN NEW TALENT

No one wants to join a team that is not growing. They want to join a team that has new talent flowing through their ranks and new people being promoted.  Where’s the motivation when the team seems like an old boys’ club of tired old faces. Smart people will begin to wonder if they had joined the right team if their members do not seem to be able to sponsor new people. They may even begin to have doubts if they have joined the right company or whether the products are saleable.  Nothing is more de-motivating than seeing an inactive leader.

PASSIVE VS ACTIVE MODE

Network Marketing is a volunteer business. If you are not in the trenches actively bringing in new people, your volunteer army won’t be on the front lines in battle with you. Train them right, and give them the skills they need for success and you stand a better chance of succeeding. Success in MLM or Network Marketing requires sustained recruitment and personal product volume..

BEING YOUR OWN BOSS

People join this wonderful business to be their own boss. Sure they want to know how to do the business. But they don’t want to be told to recruit if the leader does not lead by example. Micro-managing people is counter-intuitive.

THE NUMBERS GAME

We are in a business where personal sponsoring is key to our success. It’s a Numbers Game. The more people you see, the luckier / richer you get. What’s the point of opening a shop if you have only a few customers or have short working hours?  Building your clientèle list is key to your business survival. Get into massive action mode instead. Call more people, see more people.

NOT SPENDING MORE TIME ON MONEY PRODUCING ACTIVITIES

If you do not spend your productive time on money producing activities, you can’t get a good return on your business.  Earning a low income is not what you’ve signed up for when you decided to join a network marketing business. It far better to follow up on inactive customers or to look for new customers. If you don’t have a high volume of personal sales, it is difficult for you to get your team to generate higher sales. If you want a stronger bottom line, everyone has to be generating higher sales volume.

AVOIDING REJECTIONS

Many leaders go to into management mode because they cannot handle the rejections and the high failure rate. If this is the problem, then you must learn how to improve on your prospecting and presentation skills and closing strategies. Keep working on these key skills until it becomes a daily part of your fun activities. If you have problems sponsoring from your existing network, it is time to join other social or professional networks to gain access to new prospects.

ABANDONING WELL TESTED METHODS FOR UNTEST ONES.

Many leaders have the urge to get into management mode because they think they have found an “fool proof” technique / system which can accelerate their team’s growth. However, this technique / system has not been tested in their current team  / business environment. This usually lead to disillusionment when some team members find that this new system is working for them or worse still, they go and try out some other untested methods.. By all means try new methods which are a natural / incremental progression of your existing success methods that the team have been using all along. But stay within the familiar environment that they are used to. People want a simple system to run on – forever, if possible. Any new method may cause some of your frail members to lose confidence in themselves and cause them to even lose faith in your existing system which are yielding some promising results so far.

RELYING TOO MUCH ON ON-LINE MARKETING

One of the greatest disservice you can do your team is to tell them that they can recruit most of their people online. This market segment is mostly populated with people who are interested in get rich quick schemes, money games etc.. I’ve seen many friends who get involved in such scams and continually jump from one such company to another until they have burnt out all their cash and friends.  People who get involved in such schemes usually don’t have integrity as the people who join them will usually end up losers. Most online opportunities basically sell management mode vehicles for people who don’t want to live in the real world. You cannot create a real business if you don’t selling real products, solve real problems and have a repeatable business. Anyone who tells you that such business concepts are outdated do not have a good, viable business model that you can rely on. These marketing models are usually short lived and die off as soon as the hype has worn out and / or the company closes down (usually in one or two years or even less). Picking up the phone or going outside to meet people and solving their problems is still the best way of generating new business.

BREAKING YOUR TEAM AWAY FROM THE MAIN TEAM

Unless there are good reasons for doing so, you should not break away into smaller teams. Creative energies, social recognition and group endorsements work best on a bigger stage environment. There is strength in numbers. The bigger the meeting, the greater is the success rate. The more people in the room, the greater the excitement and synergy your team will have. The greater the number of success stories / recognition shared within the team, the more motivated members will be. Action speaks louder than the words of any leader. Don’t let ego lead you to operate in a less than optimal environment.

 

Here is what I recommend if you intend to go into Motivational or Management Mode:

  • If your team has less than 100 people spend no more than 10% of your time in management mode
  • If your team has less than 500 people spend no more than 20% of your time in management mode
  • If your team has less than 1,000 people spend no more than 30% of your time in management mode
  • If your team has less than 5,000 people spend no more than 40% of your time in management mode.

As your team grows, you will spend more and more time in management mode, HOWEVER, you should never spend a MAJORITY of your time in management mode. And you should NEVER totally leave the trenches yourself.

Even when you are in management mode, you’ll have to identify your key players and make sure you are NOT working with people who are a waste of time. These usually mean people who may be active but who lack focus and commitment. Use the time working on your own direct marketing and recruitment activities instead.

To be successful in network marketing, you must first work on yourself. Your success is free advertisement which will attract new people to your team and serve as a vehicle to help them to work towards higher goals and achievements.

Stay focused and be positive. The more you learn, the more you earn. Network marketing is one big self-development course.

GETTING INTO THE MOTIVATIONAL OR MANAGEMENT MODE ONE OF THE DEADLY SINS IN NETWORK MARKETING by Nancy Long

 

 

DIRECT SALES | CAREER

NANCY LONG – MY DIRECT SALES CAREER

EMPLOYEE:

Nancy Long started work when she 18 years old as white collar admin job and after 12 years, her childhood dream of becoming very rich was fast fading away.

Fortunately she was introduced to two seminal self-help books which completely changed her life:-

  • Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill
  • “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.

Following the recommendations of the Hill & Carnegie, Nancy went in search of direct sales and MLM careers. She joined the Life Insurance Industry instead as MLM was prohibited in Singapore at that time.

INSURANCE CAREER:

At that time, the life insurance career as shunned by most people as it was considered bad luck to sell so-called “death products”. But she knew that it was a good time to get into this industry / career as only a small percentage of the population was insured and it was an industry where some people were earning a million dollars a year irregardless of their backgroud – educational or otherwise.

Thanks to these 2 books, Nancy achieved a great success in selling life insurance even though she had no prior sales experience. It was through sheer hard work and perserverence she became a member of the prestigious international Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) award in her first year and later a lifetime MDRT member.

Because she made it a priority to start fast and meet new people everyday, she was able to break records in her new career::

  • Top Agent in her first year in the business (for 3 consecutive years in No. of sales)
  • Top New Supervisor two years later (for 3 consecutive years)
  • Top New Manager three years later
  • Court of the Table
  • Top 3 District Manager five years later (for more than 10 years in South Asia)
  • Life Member of the prestigeous Million Dolllar Round Table (MDRT)

Thereafter, she was consistently in the top five in AIA Singapore in terms of personal sales and agency revenues region-wide (which meant she had to compete with top producers from Hong Kong, Malaysia,  Hong Kong, Thailand etc).

She also always qualified for the prestigious “Top of the Table” and “President’s Club” throughout her career in AIA.

Needless to say she was AIA’s crème de la crème for 20 years, one of the Company’s Top Producer in Personal and Group Sales and was heading the biggest multi million dollar agency in her company.

In 2000, she was awarded the Company’s very Top Award “Senior District Manager” (The First and Only lady to receive the award at that time) and as such, Nancy Long became an industry icon. To receive this distinguished title, Nancy had to have an  impeccable record for 20 consecutive years in terms of high sales and group performance, qualified for all the annual recognition contests as well good customer care service record. When she received this rare and distinguished rank / recognition, there were a total of only 6 Senior District Managers in the 50 year history of AIA Singapore..

She was also a much sought after trainer and public speaker in the region because of her extensive knowledge in direct sales particularly in regard to insurance sales and agency management. She was also a very entertaining motivational speaker because she was an avid reader of self-help books and attended countless seminars,courses of most of the well known gurus in the self-help field etc. on interpersonal skills as well as how to be successful in direct sales

When the Good and Services Tax (GST) was implemented in Singapore in 1994, she automatically became a “GST person” , This meant that over and above paying personal income tax, she also had to pay GST on her income. A GST person or company is someone who has a turnover of S$1 million a year or more and pays GST on their total sales turnover.

When she was the top in everything in the insurance industry, Ms Long shocked everyone in the industry by leaving the Insurance industry for the new and untested MLM / Network Marketing industry which had just been legalized in Singapore in 2001.

NETWORK MARKETING 1.0 CAREER:

Everyone said that she was crazy to walk away from a steady million dollar a year income (she was receiving a large regular residual income from her insurance business excluding new sales) but the wellness, health, fitness and nutrition industry was her passion and an industry she always wanted to be part of because of its unlimited income potential via residual and leverage income. .

Moreover, she knew from Paul Zane Pilzer, that the network marketing / MLM business was going to be the next trillion dollar business in the world because the baby boomers wanted to be more healthy, stay active, live longer and do their own business from home.

Within 3 months, she achieved the Top Rank in her company as Unicity Presidential Club Member. She stayed with the same company for more than 10 years. She was the Top Singapore Leader in this company for many years and her organisation in this company was the biggest in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia with a turnover of more than half a million a month. She went into retirement for 2 years but found her retirement life without purpose very stifling and unhealthy.

She realised that her former network marketing company Unicity could no longer give her the high growth she was getting from her insurance business, and so she began on a journey of finding a company that coould give her higher growth prospects for unlimited growth.

NETWORK MARKETING 2.0 CAREER:

In 2013, Nancy found Isagenix and very quickly achieved Crystal Executive status. She was consistently among the top performers in Asia and in 2016 became the company’s Top Earner in Asia.

Plus with the company’s system she has shed away the 12 kilos of fats – something she could not do for the past 30 years even though she took countless brands of slimming products including her former company’s slim products. Whenever she took these products, she would lose 3-4 kg of fats but quickly put on the fats on again. These yo-yo diets were not doing her health any good. Also she was looking for a company that had organic products, that were free from GMOs (genetically modified organisms), soy, artificial sweeteners, colourings, flavours, preservatives etc.

Starting from scratch is not something that is unfamiliar to Nancy. In fact, she thrives on it. A new challenge she could excel in. She all the qualities needed for starting up a new business quickly and successfully like::

  • clear and focused vision
  • good ethics
  • self-starter
  • experience
  • people oriented
  • results focused
  • leadership building
  • positive mindset
  • quality sales tools
  • good business success system
  • follow up techniques etc..

She was glad to find a high growth company like Isagenix which has all the characteristics of being a top global brand name network marketing company:

  • 10 years+ proven track record and still growing in North America
  • Integrity
  • Distributor driven
  • Have Products and Services people want
  • Great Management
  • Rewarding Compensation Plan
  • Time is going to prove her right once again and histroy will repeat itself.

2013-2016
Nancy Long was Isagenix’s 5 Star Golden Circle, 5 Star Crystal Executive. First Crystal Executive in Singapore and South Asia. In 2016, she because Isagenix’s Top Earner in Asia and Singapore based on sales turnover. She has a strong and dynamic teams in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia (where the Isagenix has opened so far).

NETWORK MARKETING CAREER 3.0

As of June 2016, I’ve partnered  with a US$ Billion annual sales company which is one of the fastest growing direct sales in INC 5000 / INC 500 and was DSN #18 in the Top Global 100 Direct Selling Companies.

She has quickly risen up the ranks of Jeunesse Global and has a large team in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia and India. Our distributors are also rapidly expanding to the Middle East and other parts of the world. The company ships products to over 141 countries as of date (6 May 2017).

List of Things to be Grateful for

List of Things to be Grateful for

Tomorrow’s Sunday and we’ll get to do all the fun stuff that we usually do on Sundays like taking our kids to places they like, like having a nice lunch / dinner at our favorite restaurants, like meeting up with friends etc. Everyday can be a Sunday day too. If we believe it to be so.

We all have so much to be thankful for, no matter what is the circumstances of our lives. If we reflect on the things in our lives, we will be able to see many things that should be grateful for. Many of these things may seem thrivial compared to our seemingly pressing wants. But what we want is not necessarily what we really need. If we focus on what we really need rather than what we want (our wants are mostly the gratification of material possessions), we will see that we have had a bountiful harvest and have much to be thankful for. The best way for us to measure our true “wealth” is to write down all the things we should be grateful for and all the things we don’t have and therefore should be “grateful” for. A sort of “Assets” and “Liabilities” test. If we go through our list, we will see the greater value of true wealth compared to the transitional and often fleeting values of what we want.

Here is What some people say about being Grateful and Positive:

  • “Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel, we can find something to be thankful for”. – Terry Lynn Taylor
  • “Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery. Today is a Gift. That is Why We Call it the ‘Present’ “Eugénie des Alpages.
  • “I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G. K. Chesterton
  • “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” – W. Clement Stone.

To give you a Kick Start, I made up a list of things I should be grateful for. A sort of Happiness Index. Why don’t you do one for yourself? When you have done your own Happiness Index with a positive frame of mind, chances are you will see how fortunate you are. If everybody did an audit on the things they should to be thankful for, we could perhaps increase the Happiness Index throughout the world. So this is . . . . . .

My List of Things to be Grateful for:

  • For Being Able to Wake Up at Any Time I Choose.

True Rags to Riches Stories

True Rags to Riches Stories

There are many Rags to Riches stories in Direct Sales. An opportunity to earn a very high income from a low investment – if you persevere and choose the right company to work with.

Choose the Right Network Marketing Company:

Like what my mentor and sponsor would always say “If you join the wrong company (meaning companies which is not going to last very long), you have already failed from day one.All your work will go to waste when the company closes down.  All your efforts will then come to nought and there’ll be no rags to riches stories for you if you join the wrong company.

Have a Big Outcome:

Have A Clear and Crystallized Vision of your Future.When your outcome is big, you are not perturbed by the problems and obstacles you may face along the way.If your Vision is unclear, you will surely stumble and fall.You will get discouraged and quit.That is why so many people fail .Their Vision is blurred. He will not work with anyone who does not have a clear vision.

More Heart:

Most people like to say “I Must Work Hard”.I’d say “More Heart ♥ Put More Passion Into Your Work”.

More Action:

Big & Clear Vision + Right Massive, Consistent Action = Big Outcome.

Follow The System:

A Good System should be Simple, Easy, Effective and Duplicable. I use CD tools extensively for my training.as I have many associates in remote places in Asia and they in turn learn from Leaders through such training CDs.

My recorded speeches made at company Conventions as far back as 2001 are used as motivational tools for my associates. It is no wonder, that many of the Thai and other Asian delegates at regional conventions recognized me even if I don’t know them personally.

Nancy Long’s CD used as unicity marketing tool in Thailand

My 8 Step System:

  1. Be a Franchise Owner / Associate
  2. Set Your Dreams and Target
  3. Name List
  4. Invitation
  5. Show the Plan
  6. Follow Up
  7. Work With the System
  8. Planning and Consultation

The remarkable difference between Singapore and the neighboring countries is that we did not bargain with the company for a lower Start Up amount or a Lower Maintenance. From day one, they stuck to the 500PV (equivalent to S$1200) of initial purchase of products if someone wants to start the MLM business and a Monthly Commitment of 200 PV (about S$500).I wouldn’t to waste time with someone who is not able to raise S$1200 to start a big business.

For those who are unable to consume S$500 worth of product per month, they can, for example, use S$100 and sell S$400.

We were in for a surprise!We found out that many people actually used more than S$500 worth of products per month for themselves and their family.They even wiped out stocks in Singapore because of the high demand.

My team have come a long way.(It is not that long ago – 4-5 years – to go from zero income to a 7 figure annual income (US$, not Baht!).

Amazing to see so many young people ages 20-30 earning between S$10,000-S$30,000 per month.They are  ordinary folks who have Big Dreams.They come from all walks of life – from teachers, nurses, government employees, clerks, secretaries to professionals, and owners of businesses.

For the last 20 years, my mentor been in and out of many network marketing / mlm / direct sales companies.Most of the time, the lifespan of these companies were far shorter than his tenure in the company. Each time a MLM or direct sales company collapsed, he lost everything.He even started his own network marketing company.He finally gave up because it could not provide him the lifestyle he dreamed of:Time + Money Freedom. I’m lucky I did not have to go through such an ordeal

He was also a consultant to some network marketing / MLM companies and that too did not last long. Deep in his heart, he knew that the only way for him to get what he wanted is to build a very successful franchise in a proven company (which has a good track record and offers real, marketable products). The opportunity came when a Presidential Sapphire spoke to him about the business.

The initial start up period  was no plain sailing. At one stage (in 2004), his Associates were reduced from a few hundreds to just a handful.In spite of this major setback, he believed deep in his heart that the business can make his dreams come true.So he persisted with the remaining few leaders and within a few years, they brought in thousands of new Associates.

We also attended the company Seminars and they were packed with more than 2000 enthusiastic people.

His success is an inspiration to millions across Asia. During the trip, we came across many other successful and inspirational direct selling stories.I will share these rags to riches stories with you at another time.

The Thais are experiencing great success with another 30% growth in August 2007.Despite having 100 or more network marketing companies / MLM operating in Thailand, health drinks are selling like hot cakes.It is a drink of choice for their film stars, doctors, politicians, right down to taxi drivers, construction workers.This is a testimony to the efficacy of the company products.

Towards the end of September 2007, the company had a team over 200 delegates to the Japan Convention. By the time they get to Japan, they will have more than 250 new top ranking Associates.This is certainly cause for celebration in the Thai camp. And a victory for direct sellers.

Tip #1 – Join the Right Company

You must join the right company if you want to succeed in a network marketing business / MLM:

The business has a level playing field. People who come in “late” into the business, not only have a chance of doing well, but even exceeding the earnings of those who joined earlier. This is the true test of a good network marketing / MLM company.

With the right company, everyone can succeed – even physically handicapped people, who is wheelchair bound.He became Senior Associate within a few months of joining the company!

Hearing & talking to them is such an inspiration! “People look at me as a person on wheelchair, but my brain is not sitting on a wheelchair! My Dreams do not sit on a wheelchair!” If a physically disabled person simply would not let his handicap stop him from pursuing his Dreams, what about the rest of us?. How often do we meet able people who have forgotten how to Dream? Or worse still, don’t believe they could achieve their Dreams? Let’s share this amazing life story of Pong Sak with them, for it could reignite their dreams.

On being asked how he managed to travel all the way from Chiang Mai to attend the Rally in Bangkok, he said “My heart is with the company, if I want to be there, I will get there!” How powerful!

Similarly, I won’t let excuses stop me from pursuing what I feel is important to me! I’ll just simply do it till I get it – that’s the most valuable lesson for me. If disabled person can do it, so can I!

Tip #2 – Be a Great Leader

The only way to succeed in direct sales is to be a great leader.

A successful Bangkok Business Rally and the following day’s full day training had a turnout of more than 2000 people. The Thais are not only growing , they are growing bigger and faster.

When I saw the size of the crowd attending the Rally, it immediately gave me a motivating thought. The only way to grow to a size like that is to have a good number of leaders. The bigger the organization we want to build, the more leaders we need to have.

We saw a couple of Presidential Club members moving up the ranks during this trip. This is encouraging as it shows that the growth is consistent with people moving up in a predictable manner.

We have all heard company’s CEO talk about the importance of leadership, here in Thailand we got to see leadership at its best. For how can a man run host an event for more than 2000 associates all by himself? Not to mention 2 concurrent sessions of training in one day. Bottom line: Size of Organization = Number of Leaders.

So I guess the question is how do we get a good number of leaders in our organization? Well, we can look at the success of the Thais for inspiration, we can look at our immediate up line for guidance or we can look at the mirror and start working with that person.

Tip #3 – Have a BIG Dream

One of my leaders said “I am inspired to develop myself and more importantly lead myself even more just like how my up line, Nancy Long does, setting an great example and walking the talk. If the Thais can do it, so can we”.

I admire the enthusiasm of Thai people and their Business Associates. Whether young or old, they joined the company with a clear dream in mind.

The turnout of the Rally on the 8 September 2007 was truly awesome. Two thousand plus of them coming to the event with so much energy and enthusiasm! All of them came for the Rally with the correct attitude. Wearing different color polo t-shirts, they reflect unity in diversity.

People who are serious about the network marketing business must know how to dream.They know, too, what it takes to achieve the dream. For example, a Thai lady from the province taught us that anyone can do the business successfully as long as they put their hearts and souls into it. Initially, she did not even dare to talk to people.However, driven by her dream, she learn to open up and persevere, and talk to as many people as possible. She now owns a Mercedes car. Her husband helps to chauffeur her from province to province so she can deliver products. She now has no problems talking to a big group of people.

Tip #4 – Do Whatever it takes to be Successful

My strategy is to:

  1. add more names in my contact list,
  2. call more people, meet more people,
  3. talk to more people about the business and products
  4. and therefore achieve a positive growth in my direct sales organization.

Action speaks louder than words. Less Work / Effort = Less Results. On the other hand, More Work / Effort = Better Results.
