May 2010

Larry and I are just a little more than 24 hours out from departure for a fabulous company trip we qualified for with our Network Marketing Company. On this trip, we are being treated to all expenses paid,  from the time we sit down on the airplane, until the time we arrive back home. More exciting and really much more valuable to us than that is the education we will be receiving from our company executive leadership.

Earlier in the year our company released a promotion for an Elite Executive Retreat, at which we would be going to a special sunny beach destination to learn, a super sought after, 12 Step corporate business strategy. This strategy has been taught to TOP CEO’s around the world, and been responsible for the growth of Billion Dollar Corporations like Kraft and General Foods. That got us very excited, and was all we needed to get to work to qualify.

The qualification was not easy by any means (it never is) , and it was amazing how fired up we got making it happen. I will let you in on a secret- You must get FIRED UP if you’re going to win a trip!! If it’s not fun, why do it! We started working with key leaders on our team. Any time you are looking to accomplish a goal, the first thing you do is break it down, so we sat down and looked at who we had on our team that wanted to accomplish their goals, and get there too.  We began working individually and in groups with our teams and in future articles we’ll talk more specifically about what, how etc.

Have you ever won a trip with your company? Have you ever dreamed of what it would be like to go on a Carribean Cruise or to Japan because you worked so hard that your company wanted to say “thank you” and send you there?

Why do mlm companies, or any sales organizations run promotions? Is it simply to say thank you? That’s part of it. It’s a big part of it. RECOGNITION. Our industry thrives on recognition! Network marketers live to walk across stages, have pins, pinned on them and to take fabulous trips. Because with those things, comes income, security, presitige, knowledge, and rank advancement, just to name a few of many of the amazing benefits of mlm growth and leadership.

Another obvious reason our companies organize promotional trips, is for the bonding, idea exchange, and just plain “play time” that takes place amongst the leaders. We work pretty darned hard every day, at least you should be if you want to make it in this industry! That’s why it’s called Net WORK Marketing!

But what blows our socks off is that in this day and age of hype and rah-rah, there is a company that is motivating their distributor base with usable,  STRATEGIC BUSINESS BUILDING KNOWLEDGE. In our 20+ years in the industry, we have never been through anything like this. Yes we have been to leadership summits, retreats etc. But they have mostly been put on by the team organization. This is part of the company’s entire event strategy, to train the distributor base, build the  training events which have to be earned, and help the leaders create momentum. Naturally we will have the usual open events that everyone can attend.

So if there is an opportunity for you to win a trip in your company, find out what it takes. It can be a life changing experience for you. There is nothing like it in the world.

Part 2:  6/3/10

This You Tube Video Tells The Story!! It was an incredible event. The very important factor to remember when you watch this video is that every single person who attended this fabulous mlm event had to work their butt off to attain a company rank to get to go on this trip!! You could not “buy your way on! Our company has an event strategy, in which high level training only available to corporate CEO’s and Fortune 100 Companies will be made available to the upper leadership who attain certain ranks in the company. Pretty Cool Huh? As someone who attended the first one, I can tell you this is training you cannot get in ANY MLM COMPANY.This strategy is part of of the training available when you join our team.

Whew…what a whirlwind it has been researching, watching, building, blogging, facebooking, tweeting etc, all the while “being self taught” by this wonderful medium, The Worldwide Web!! Wow, I am amazed at the knowledge I have amassed over the past 3 years, yet still feel very much a student.  We used to say “Is this going to bring some return?…(in the early days) and then the leads began to drip in, and the relationships were built and vice versa!. People joined our teams. This stuff was actually working!

Yet when i look at my contemporaries, I must speak honestly I have so far to go. I have created 2 niche blogs, and some landing pages, built organizations, yet I feel like a baby when it comes to social media. I am a self proclaimed continuing social media student. People do business with those they like and trust, and I am no expert yet! I have much to share, but what is so wonderful about being part of the social media world is that I have much to learn and that is OK!! [click to continue…]

Welcome To Our New Blog!

by limitlesslaura

As you can see we are under construction, and will be for a bit. As this blog evolves you will see some fun things, and some great content. For now I will post a short bio about myself, Laura Morris. Come back and see us again soon as we design our new blog!                                                                       

I have been in the home based business arena in some capacity since 1983. Back then it was with a small calligraphy business when my kids were little, then with the legendary Mary Kay Cosmetics. Mary Kay was the place “I got bit by the bug” and was never the same!. From then on I was “psychologically unemployable, and though I tried to work outside the home a couple of times I knew..owning my own business, from home, and making my own money was the only way to fly!
I went on to make half hearted attempts while raising my 3 children at a quest for the perfect home based business. But I don’t think I really knew what it was myself. The truth was I was that I was treating the business like a HOBBY, and I was not willing to jump out on the edge and do what ever it took to make it work…So, it was paying me like hobby!
In 1998 I finally had a serious wake-up call that was “do or die” time..one of those look inside yourself moments, when you say to yourself “ok..this is it I MUST MAKE THIS WORK”.

In 1999 I answered an ad in the newspaper for a travel business, and my entire life turned around, more like up-side-down (well not yet, but it was about to). I went to work, REALLY WENT TO WORK. From then on I became a sponge of this industry, I found a mentor. I read everything I could get my hands on. I listened to tapes, watched videos,and attended business and personal development seminars. The most important thing I did overall was I became disciplined in DAILY MONEY MAKING ACTIVITIES ..I tracked the activities, and adjusted according to my results. I found that nothing stopped me, because FAILURE WAS NOT AN OPTION I have never thought of any other way.

I partnered with someone who believes in me, and it turned out he probably believed in me a lot more than I did at the time. My husband Larry comes from a 25 year background in the industry. He is Multi-Million Dollar Earner, is an accomplished speaker, trainer, and mentored many to five and six figure success.

Together we became an unstoppable team, because we wanted all the same things..We have gone on to create amazing things in especially the last 9 years. We have built relationships all over the world, and formed some fantastic organizations. Sometimes we have an unconventional way of doing things, but one thing you will learn about us is we are all about POSSIBILITIES. We work very hard to build long term, strong relationships with each person we work with. We won’t have it any other way. That is the strategy we teach, along with the simple daily disciplines of the business.

We believe strongly in teaching you how to rely on tools and systems, rather than “selling and explaining”. People don’t want to be sales people, and are not looking for sales people. Right? This frees you up to blossom as a marketer while you make money. We have many people making money on our team immediately, because we teach them our simple strategies, that NEVER FAIL. The key is consistency, activity and application.

Our key focus is especially on partnering with dynamic people and teaching highly sought after business strategies that move leaders to a much higher level in their business, beyond the traditional methods.

We work out of our home in Salt Lake City Utah, and have 6 grown children between us, and 5 grandchildren who we adore spending time with as much as we can. We would love to get to know you
