Are U Serious?

During the 15 years that I have known Phil, he has been my friend, teacher, mentor, and business partner. In my 35 years in business, I am not sure that I have come across a more energetic, focussed, and consistent individual. He has a tremendous amount of experience teaching and leading individuals as well as teams, in this fast-paced, continually evolving direct-sales industry. He is definitely someone to know and learn from.

I want to thank you for sticking around and reading some of my other blog posts and for checking out the various downloads I’ve created to help you. 

Now, what if I told you that there is a huge opportunity available right now? One that is breaking records and doing things that have never been done before by Network Marketing companies?  Sound interesting? What if I told you that the sky is the limit in terms of income, as once you build to the highest rank you can start all over again, on top of what you are already earning….That’s great potential right?  What if I told you that one of the leaders in this company has been in the industry for awhile and has learned all of the tricks of the trade and is willing to share with you?

Well if you haven’t guess yet, this is me, and I want to tell you about an exciting opportunity to join my team.  As you know I have been involved within this industry for 20 years, both as a consultant and also as a corporate staff person. I’ve learned what works and is lasting, and what doesn’t.

A few years ago I was introduced to doTERRA, the global leader in essential oils and I was excited to learn more about the product and company.   When I saw the compensation plan (after only experiencing the typical Direct Sales compensation plan), I was blown away.

Essential oils have been gaining popularity for a few years now. You don’t have to look far to notice that there are tons of companies trying to get a piece of the pie. The problem is that most of the companies out there are putting out an inferior product that has either been diluted or is completely synthetic. And, you can’t even trust the label as the FDA doesn’t regulate essential oils. 

So after much personal research I realized that there are less than handful of companies that actual share the data of what’s in every bottle, like doTerra does, which is very different from other companies. Not only does doTERRA create the highest quality of essential oils on the market today, they also have a slew of other healthy products including; all natural skin care, green cleaning products, whole food supplements and much, much more.

Remember in an earlier blog post where I mentioned consumable products? Well this is the best part about doTERRA.  There are tons of consumable products that people are actually looking for and use in their everyday lives.

With a great subscription box program people get rewarded to order each month and stock up on the products that they were using already, like toothpaste, laundry detergent and more. This makes your paycheck a lot more stable as you can anticipate that people will order again and again.

Now let’s talk about innovation. doTERRA is ‘disrupting’ the healthcare industry by helping cutting-edge researchers at places like John Hopkins University.  But get this, doTERRA is opening up their own health clinics, where modern medicine is partnered with more holistic approaches. That’s like Pampered Chef opening cooking schools, it just doesn’t happen.

Companies typically don’t venture outside their role of providing a product. So this is huge, and it’s just getting started. More and more people are looking for natural solutions, and this just isn’t a fad or a niche market. As more research is published about what we already know about the power of essential oils, more customers will stepping forward.  Do you see the potential here?!?

Now is the time to jump on this train as it continues to move onward and upward. You’ll be joining with my team, one that is committed to helping others and changing lives, physically, emotionally and financially. We have very active facebook groups for both customers and those doing the business. I have a website that lists a ton of resources all in one location for you to find what you need. You’ll be joining a team where everyone works together and where we help each other, all spread out across the US and spreading quickly into other countries.  And then, of course, you’ll be signing on with me, someone who has the experience and know how to individually coach and support you through this journey.

So I’ve got a couple of options to help you. You can say ‘heck yeah,’ I want to do this! So you’ll click HERE to sign up and get started. That’s the kind of motivation that will take you far in this business.

If you want to learn more or even talk with me, I’d be happy to schedule a time to chat, just click the Contact button at the top of this page.

And of course, at anytime, don’t hesitate to reach out to me and ask any questions that come up. I’m here to help as many people create the life they have only dreamed of. But you have to be ALL IN. So if this is you, let’s get started today. Whatever you choose, I’m committed to helping you live your best life.

Interview Your Potential Upline

Direct Sales vs. Network Marketing

read more

I hope you enjoyed the previous blog and also the Secrets of the Direct Sales Industry download I created. 

Now I want to give you another easy one page document that will help you to see if the company you are in, or even a company you are considering, will be a good fit.  Think of it is a way to check to see if the products are going to sell, how the compensation plan stacks up, and more.

But let’s talk for a minute longer and dive into one of my biggest complaints in the industry, it has to do with the compensation plan.  Now as I said previously, there are some companies out there that are starting to become what I call hybrid companies. They still function as a direct sales or party-plan company, but they start pulling benefits from other areas such as a network marketing company.  These may be a better fit, but most companies are slow to make these changes for the reasons in my previous download, including keeping more money within the company and not distributing it to the workforce.

Compensation plans that only payout a unilevel plan make it difficult to earn a much larger paycheck and most certainly create more of a residual income.  These type of unilevel plans only pay you what your team does in sales, no bonuses are built into the monthly payout.

So let’s do an example, which may be similar to a situation you are in. Let’s say you have a team of about 25 people, each one does on average about $300 in sales in a given month….some more and some less. Your team then does about $7500 in total volume, not too shabby for a smaller team.  Now depending on the compensation plan you are typically only going to earn 2% to maybe 8% back, but it really depends on what level each of your 25 people are on. So let’s just keep it super simple and say you make 5% back, you’ll earn a check of $375. You’ll also earn commission on your sales.

But here’s the kicker you probably haven’t even paid attention to. You will be REQUIRED to sell a certain amount even to earn that $375.  Let’s say you have to sell $500 just to even earn that money. Some consultants won’t even do this, meaning part of the income stays within the company and doesn’t get paid out. I’ve even seen companies where the required amount to sell is even much higher. Now I’m not talking about minimums, that is the amount someone is required to just stay active, but if you want to make that $375 you’ll need to sell $500 each and every month.

Now I know what you are thinking, but Dr. Phil what about making big bucks.  Ok, well let me bring up a larger scenario. Let’s say you recruited well and so did a few people on your team. Let’s say you have a team of 250. Not too shabby huh. Ok, so the same info, each person sells $300 and so the total amount in volume is $75,000, which is certainly much nicer. The payout based on 5% is $3750. Well that seems a little better. But now at this level some added things start being required because you have a larger team, you may have another website to run, incentives to give out, maybe a little travel, and of course don’t forget that you’ll definitely want to start putting some money aside to start paying taxes as you’ll be required to.  That puts you at about $3000 a month, give or take a little. Now this will fluctuate based on what season you are in as the summer months are typically a lot slower. But even on average $3000 a month for 12 months isn’t too bad. It’s certainly not bad, but it also isn’t created overnight.

This was me actually. However, when I really started looking at the numbers I was having more and more expenses just to run a business at a higher level. And just as quickly as I recruited new team members I was losing the same amount, retention is pretty difficult in the Direct Sales industry. Even though I was a workaholic and earned some amazing trips, at the end of the day it felt impossible to take my business to the next level as it was stacked against me. 

That’s why if you look at any company there are actually only a few people at the top making those big bucks. That’s when I knew I had to look for something different.

So now that I have you thinking about what to look for in a company or even to take a look at the company you’re with, I want you to use the easy checksheet I’ve created below and see how your company stands up. I’d love to hear how it compares as I’m constantly watching the industry to see what is happening.

I also want you to be on the lookout for my next blog post as I want to talk about another opportunity that I didn’t even knew existed, but has allowed me to, with the same work ethic I put in the other companies, create a true long term and 6+ figure income, in a fraction of the time.  So check out the checksheet and let me know what stands out the most.
