Ego Economics / Principles / Capacity

What is Your E Score?

This is a glimpse into just one of the leadership strategies taught by Tyler Norton, former VP Beneficial Life, insurance and financial services. Tyler was a top corporate executive at the age of 29.  Tyler along with direction from his father Verdis Norton, CEO of ASEA developed a strategic business management model now called “ Strategic Link”.Verdis served as Sr. Executive VP of Strategic Planning for Kraft Foods Inc, and other Fortune 100 companies over his 30 plus year career. Strategic Link is an exclusive training program available to the associates of ASEA at no charge , but is rather part of the overall event strategy where associates earn the privelege to attend through significant rank advancement (See  MLM Events Now, Then & Always) Strategic Link is given in some of the greatest Fortune 500 corporations who have paid thousands for their executives to complete.

Tyler is a natural teacher and facilitator; a master of models with a unique talent to synthesize critical issues and opportunities into a set of strategic initiatives linked to specific execution guidelines. He has taught the StrategicLink process to nonprofits such as the Boy Scouts of America, National Women’s Chamber of Commerce and to numerous small to mid size companies around the country.

Ego and Economics

What are the motivating elements driving a person in a relationship or transaction?People can tell when you are motivated by dollars instead of their best interest. We meet people in business who are ego driven and many times people are repelled by them, and we can sense that “they would sell their mother” to get where they are going”.  Ask yourself what their motives are and watch for them.


“Principles are concentrated truths packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances”

To be a successful leader, “You have to have a commitment to principles that is greater than your commitment to ego economics” . I came up with a few examples of the ways business lends us many opportunities to be principle based. Some of these core principles might be:

  • To be honest in all of your dealings.
  • To treat your customers and distributors the way you wish to be treated at all times
  • To provide the very best service you can.
  • To hold the best interest of your customer (and not yourself or the dollar) as the number one objective
  • To to keep communication open so that people feel like they contact you anytime for help, and always return your business calls promptly.
  • To make each individual transaction as important as the last, no matter the return. (making people feel important goes a long way)
  • To honor your business as a thriving enterprise, that deserves accurate record keeping, fiscal responsibility, eye kept on the bottom line, and growth goals clear.

These are just a few.What are some of yours?? We all know principle based people who’s “P” score is far higher than their “E” score.  I invite you to comment on this, and tell about someone you might know like this or a situation that illustrates.


Source Credibility and Character: “Do I have a Core Belief and Abiding Conviction about what I am about to share with you is More About YOU than it is about me” People know when you are being REAL. When you know who you are and you have a strong core conviction about your principles, values, your product, your company and most especially THE PERSON YOU ARE TALKING TO, you will win every time.

It’s easy to forget the most important concepts under stress, when you’re busy building a business and attending webinars, soaking up education. I had forgotten a very critical principal this week.  Your MLM “PhD” is A Continuing Education Worth Millions because you are always learning something new to make yourself more valuable to your readers, your down line, your sales force, your students, your family and yourself . There is no amount of time or money that should not be sacrificed to make you as valuable as you can possibly be! Here’s why:                                                          

  • When you invest in yourself you are adding to your personal library of knowledge that will be with you forever. Nobody can take away what you know. You can take it anywhere, do anything with it. I have seen the libraries of Multi-Million dollar earners, and I can tell you they are vast. Heck our library is vast! A top money earner is always reinvesting a good portion of his or her income back into more knowledge!
  • You become extremely attractive with the more education you participate in. Sharing value with our readers is the name of the game!! If you don’t have anything valuable to bring to the table, well, your blog will not be interesting or engaging, and it won’t attract readers. Giving value is what makes you stand out, makes you a trusted advisor, liked as an individual, and perceived as a leader. The more tips, ideas, training, and help you can share with your readers or followers, the more you will find them “coming back for more”! [click to continue…]
