Planning Your MLM Reboot

Full Disclosure:  This article isn’t really about your MLM reboot, it’s about mine.  Hopefully, by sharing my plan, it may help you create your plan, should you ever find yourself in the situation I find myself in today.

My Story

For the past two and a half years, I have lived with metastatic breast cancer.

Understandably, my life and my MLM business have been on hold.  I’ve done what I could to support my team, but truth be told, my team has supported me.

I recently received my second all-clear 3-month scan, meaning I have officially been in remission for 6-months.  Woot!!  Based on these happy results, my oncologist has changed my treatment plan to one that is much more conducive to living a full and rich life.  And oh boy am I ready to reclaim my life and my MLM business.

MY 10-step MLM Reboot Plan

The following 10-step MLM Reboot plan is uniquely mine.  If you are ready to reboot your own MLM business, use it as a blueprint to create your plan.

  1. Catch up on any changes to the products, compensation plan, or marketing tools.
  2. Check in with my direct sponsored team.  Reach out to team members whose direct sponsor is no longer working their business.
  3. Schedule and register for local team meetings, corporate calls, training events, and company convention.
  4. Touch base with clients with an active subscription.  Reach out to past clients.
  5. Attend 1 to 2 networking meetings per week.
  6. Schedule at least 3 one-on-one appointments each week with team members, clients, and new friends.
  7. Use my company’s products daily.
  8. Share my company’s products and opportunity daily.
  9. Refresh my affirmations and read them every day.
  10. Spend 30 minutes on professional and personal development daily.

Even the best plans will fail without inspired action.  So make your plan and put it into action!

5 Publicity Tips from Thomas Edison

When you think about Thomas Edison, do you automatically wonder what publicity tips he might have to offer?

Yea, me neither.

And then, while on a recent trip to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan, I discovered Thomas Edison’s real genius was not his inventions, it was his use of the media to his own advantage.

Which proves the point, if you pay attention, there are lessons to be learned everywhere you turn.

Greenfield Village

Greenfield Village, part of The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, is the home to 83 historic structures, including 10 dedicated to Thomas Edison.  The “Edison at Work” district includes the carbon shed, carpentry shop, glass house, laboratory, library, and machine shop from his Menlo Park complex in New Jersey.  His workshops were doing so much more than just inventing the lightbulb!

There Are No Accidents

“I never did anything by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident.  They came by work.” – Thomas Edison

So, be on purpose with your public relations and marketing efforts. Do the work and reap the rewards.
