10 top tips to make your MLM business a success.
This past week I was staying in a remote area of British Columbia with my family. Although it was an incredible backdrop of lake, mountains and endless mountain bike trails, it was also Bear Country. As we went out on our rides each day in groups of 6 or more we made precautionary hoots and hollers to help scare away any bears that may be lurking around our next corner as we FEARED to run into a bear. Instead of enjoying the ride all the way around the lake, we had a false sense of what may lie around the corner… a grizzly, black bear, or worse either with a cub.
But isn’t that life in general, many times we FEAR what is around the corner so we seldom get on the bike for a ride! It is our FEAR of what COULD be that stops us…
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Global 100, the top direct selling companies in the world
Working for a network marketing company is no longer regarded as a hobby or some cute little business. With sales in the United states to be estimated in 2009 at $28.33 Billion and world-wide sales estimated at over $114 Million with over 66 million independent direct sellers in over 100 countries it is hard not to know someone in network marketing. However many of us still encounter people that find it hard to accept, understand or support this industry… this is why we think it is so important for you to fully understand not only your company, but as well the industry that you are involved in.
Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.
We at Fiitfu believe that if everyone just realized that life is a progression and never really perfection, then there would be so fewer disappointments out there! In Network Marketing it takes a while to get yourself up and running. HOWEVER people over estimate what they can do in a short period of time and underestimate what they can do over a longer period of time, let's say 5 years. This has a large factor to do with why many people don't reach their goals.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them.

We here at FIITFU believe in the best things in life, including good Food! But have you ever thought that following a recipe for your favourite dinner would actually be the same recipe you need to follow to make your business stronger as well?
A great analogy from the book Everything Counts http://www.everythingcounts.comthe author Gary Ryan Blair puts things into perspective when he talks about the best book he ever read being a cookbook. He breaks it down into 5 steps that everyone building a business needs to understand. You see a beautiful picture of the meal you would love to eat, and there are exact steps that you need to take to get you there, that is the future reality of what you're trying to create with your business.
Here is a quick snapshot of your 5 steps to follow in a recipe and business, then at the end, one of our favorite recipes! Then t
The very essence of leadership is you have a vision. It's got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet

Believe in what you are doing, and don't give up until you get there!
Is there really one effective recipe for success? What does it take to be successful? A good idea? A Burning Desire? Support? Vision ? How about visualisation, self-motivation, persistence and courage?
Realistically, if you take a look at some of the most successful people out there, their message is similar… take note of some of these words, implement them into your business and measure the change.
Here are some words of wisdom on success from some familiar names:
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Your clients live busy lives and they need reminders. Many people don’t take time to plan ahead on re-purchasing a product – when they need something they impulsively buy the nearest replacement. Lets make sure you become the ‘nearest replacement’.
Today I received a gift in the mail. It was from one of my mentor’s in my network marketing company, she had sent me a book by John C Maxwell entitled 'THE RIGHT TO LEAD' learning leadership through character and courage.
If you are not familiar with John Maxwell, he is an internationally respected leadership expert, speaker, and author who has sold more than 19 million books.
The book is a small hardcover book, but it packs a punch with it’s message. Opening up the book you are welcomed with various nautical shots including maps, photo’s of sailboats & compasses. It gives me the visual image before even reading a word that this book will be about charting your course, being prepared for storms, and having a team that can work together in rough waters…
