MSI — It is the heart of success

I have talked several times about the Multiple Streams of Income Mindset.  On vacation, I read (finally) The Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter.  I highly recommend it.  I have ordered several of his other books.  It is one of those books that has been by my bedside for quite some time. In looking at how to build wealth Kiyosaki talks about investing, building a business and also the viability of network marketing.  One of the important qualifiers of a business was that it was a system, that works with or without you, the owner.  I know many of us are building businesses, but can we really leave them, alone for months, or a year and still have them working for us?

That is my new goal, to look at my business and determine how to build it so that it is viable with or with out me.  I am also continuing to build my other streams of revenue through network marketing.  I am using SendOutCards more and more.  It is such a fun program.  I send cards, gifts and stay in touch better with my friends, family and contacts than I ever did before.  I have set a new goal of sending out 10 cards each week.  I am also building a team of people that want to increase their income and at the same time stay in touch.  Let me share some of the ways that I am using SendOutCards:

  • I am bad with birthdays but SendOutCards has reminders.  I have used it to send cards and gifts to nieces, nephews and friends.
  • I have set up campaigns ( series of cards that go out automatically) for my business – to stay in touch with new contacts.
  • I have set up websites to tell people about the opportunity and share the possibilities of generating new and additional income
  • I work with people to integrate SendOutCards into their life and business so that it works for them in a couple of ways.

The other venture that we are a part of is a travel business.  You can become a preferred customer and book travel with us, or you can join our DreamTrips program that offers exclusive trips and significantly discounted prices or you can join our team and be part of our travel business.  It is fun, and travel is a GROWING industry.  I share our sites with folks and I receive rave reviews on our travel booking engine.

After reading Kiyosaki’s book, I knew that being a part of successful network marketing was a good choice.  That we are part of a group of people that are focused on building wealth and learning how to do it successfully, and that we can help other people to do the same thing.

I continue to work as a coach with clients and groups, and I continue to offer a variety of services to entrepreneurs.  I love that work.  But I see the importance, especially in this economy of aligning with like minded people, building success and wealth in a number of ways and living our dreams.

Do You Have a MSI Mindset?

Your MSI Mindset

Are you thinking about how to create multiple streams of income in your business? One of the things that I am doing is looking at how I can integrate other services and tools into my business that also create a new stream of revenue. I have multiple streams of income in my business naturally. I use speaking, coaching, affiliate marketing, products – books, programs and audio programs. But I am also looking at direct selling companies that augment what I already do. I love Send Out Cards.  It has provided my busines with a valuable tool for building success, staying in touch and continuously following up with people.  People are always impressed with the cards and keep them on their desks, offices, because they are fun, unique and heartfelt.  But what I also like about Send Out Cards is that it creates a new stream of revenue for the business.  I am able to help other people to build revenue into their businesses. 

As a coach, I look at, how can different tools fit into different companies.  I see all sorts of possibilities for companies.  There are some incredible companies out there that can really help business owners create new streams of revenue AND at the same time provide them with some incredible training oppportunies.

Have you considered how you can add additional revenue into your company?  Call me and we can talk about how different tools might be a good fit for you and your company.

It really comes down to mind set and thinking differently about your business and how it can generate money for you and your family.  For me, we are looking to create streams of revenue that are truly passive in that they keep working even if we are out on a bike ride or on vacation.  We know that as business owners we are often at the center of our businesses.  I have found with my new Multiple Streams of Income Mindset, that I am looking at and thinking about my business differently, and I think that the benefit is going to be incredible.  I think that it can incredible for you too.

Focusing on Your Own Personal Development: Take the Time

 

Do you ever wish you were someone else or somewhere else? Sometimes it happens that we get all wrapped up in our own doubts, fears and insecurities; that inner voice that nags at us and doesn’t say the nicest things. Do you ever feel that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence?  It might look like someone else is doing better, feeling better, more successful that you.  The reality is that many people, perhaps most people are having a similar experience and perhaps are more scared than you.

 

Focusing energy on your own personal development is a key to being truly satisfied with you.  Taking a dedicated amount of time each day and focusing that time on you can be the greatest gift you give to yourself.

 

The Internet offers a wealth of self development and self improvement opportunities.  There is a wealth of information available.  I use a system of self improvement that incorporates reading, audio and video programs on topics ranging from wealth and prosperity; to marketing; to self esteem, motivation and mindset. Learning and self development is part of a self development plan.  The next part is incorporating that learning into life.  With any educational program you have to sort through what is meaningful and what is not, for you.

 

The first step to self improvement is self love. It is perhaps the hardest love to achieve.  Whitney Houston has a song “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.” It’s so true. Loving yourself gives you the ability to really love others.  It is hard to give what you do not have, yet people believe that they can love others without truly loving themselves.

 

Modeling self love and personal development are more powerful than telling people “they ought to”.  Their observation of your practices of personal development can model for them how to achieve similar success.  Self improvement makes us better people, we can then inspire other people, and then the rest of the world will follow.

 

What areas of your life would you like to improve upon? Are there areas of personal development that you would benefit from? 

 

Take a moment and create your personal development plan.  A plan you say?  Yes, a plan.  A personal development plan increases your commitment.  But you are also working to change patterns of behavior and habits.  This does not come easily.  A dedicated plan can assist you in doing this.  Start with 15 minutes a day of focused personal development time.  Choose your daily topic and take the time to read, listen, watch, participate in a personal development activity.  Then take 15 minutes to integrate what you have learned.  The effect of focused personal development only impacts your life when you integrate your new learning into your daily practices.  It is just a learning event or training event and then it is over.  Where to start?  Start with self love.

 

One of the programs that I am participating in for my personal development is Success University.  What is incredible about this program is the volume of resources that it offers AND the additional revenue that it provides to my family income.  Right now they are offering an incredible program as they are adding World Ventures in just a few days.  Check out the site, the 14 day free trial and see what you can do to benefit your personal development and your income at the same time.  http://www.compassrose.successuniversity.com/new
