MLM Networking – Keep It Simple

Ask some of the more successful Multi-Level-Marketers and they will tell you that the key factor in MLM networking is simplicity.MLM networking is a very simple business. But keeping it simple does not mean that hard work is not involved. One of the common mistakes is that people try to make it complicated.

Even if a complex system achieved great results for you, others will find it difficult to copy. In MLM networking, personal success is not your greatest asset.

Your greatest asset is having a system that guarantees the success of everyone using it. The success of others, and your success, is dependant upon their ability to do the same things you do. Keep the least experienced of those in your network in mind when you set up a system of doing things for your organization to follow.

Everything you do must be simple enough so that everyone can quickly duplicate your efforts and achieve the same phenomenal results as you.

In MLM networking, you should not do things that require special skills, resources which are available only to you or to a limited number of people. Open up your business to a much larger pool of people who can become successful. You need to build your network as quickly as possible. You can only meet with a few people each day and can personally close even fewer sales.

But using an MLM networking strategy, you can help others quickly learn to do the same simple things as you. When they do, they multiply your efforts.

Go for the same phenomenal results. This is quality duplication. Each person in your MLM networking, from top to bottom, must be able to exactly duplicate what you are doing and be able to teach others to do exactly the same thing. How large a sales team you can build depends on how well it is duplicated.

To ensure duplication, you need a system or processes that anybody and everybody can follow and teach. You cannot duplicate a person but you can duplicate a system.

In building a successful and long-term network, the MLM networking system must rule. Remember a system is only as good as it is duplicated.

The more complex a system, the less likely quality duplication will be achieved. To make sure you duplicate well, follow the System you are provided with religiously. There is no perfect system and your time is better spent perfecting your ability to duplicate it rather than perfecting a system.


Trying new foods

Being on the farm and wanting to stay healthy I like to add new healthy products each time I go shopping and make a commitment to use them to improve my health and well being.

Here are some that I have tried and like… may too. You can find them at a health food store, and online, you may even find them at regular your grocery store.

Sources of protein I have added and now enjoy.

Garbanzo beans (chick peas) are a favorite of mine that you can roast or add to a salad. For a meatless meal they are packed more iron than any other bean. I used to only think of these in baking but now have added raw almonds and walnuts to my diet. A small handful of these a day are a great source of sustainable protein and healthy fat also good for the heart. Which brings us to whole grains that we have tried; like brown rice bread and sprouted whole grain bread that I’m told is good to avoid allergies, mental fog and weight gain. Buying a bread machine has made this easy for me…we have a different loaf each day or so. Have used different flours….like millet, tricale, spelt and kamut that I add as part of the flour mixture I use in my bread.

Having a Quinoa plant close by we have tried and like this. Has a lot of protein.

It’s very delicious in soups and salads, full of fiber and B vitamins and one of the least allergenic foods.

I grow my own garden have tried growing some of the following produce. Some I have had success with….others I just buy in the store. These I have grown leeks, red radishes, green onions which are powerful fat emulsifiers. I want to try growing broccoli sprouts this spring With having a sister in law that is battling breast cancer…I have recently found out that the sprouts have 10 times more cancer-fighting ability than mature broccoli. It’s never to late to add things like this to your diet. I also grow my own carrots, beans peas, green bean, corn, swiss chard, lettuce, beets –love the greens. Turnips are anothe favorite for a low carb in stead of potatoes that we also grow — grow mostly red as they are healthier. We do like the white for baking and the occasional dish of fries. Yes the once in a while comfort food is OK. Kale is something I had thought was more ornamental then anything then I find out it’s the most powerful source of absorbed

calcium than any other food. That will be a must try for me to eat and maybe grow.

During the colder months I rely on the bagged mixed greens that I like sprinkling with fresh lemon that is a powerful internal detoxifier.

As you can see we have tried and like a lot of different things. Other things we tried and liked are mangoes, avocados, star fruit, pomegranates, papaya… name a few. I can remember my mom always saying try it you won’t know if you like it or not unless you do……


How to Store Vitamins

There are two main types of vitamins, water soluble vitamins and fat soluble vitamins, the way the body does or doesn’t store vitamins from food depends what type it is. The body can’t store water soluble vitamins this means you need to replentish your water soluble vitamin intake on a daily basis. The eight B vitamins and vitamin C are water soluble vitamins and the body cannot store vitamin content that is either of these.

It is not simply that the body can’t store vitamins that are water soluble but also the water soluble vitamins are easily destroyed by improper storage, handling, or cooking of foods that contain these vitamins. It’s important you don’t overcook your veggies by boiling them. The water soluble vitamins will be cooked out of them, this can be overcome by light cooking or steaming and by using the water that veggies have been cooked in to form sauces and gravies or as I do add the water as part of the liquid in my daily loaf of bread I bake in my bread machine. Since the body cannot store vitamin C or the other water soluble vitamins it is essential to eat a well balanced diet with at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables. To be sure that enough vitamins are available for the body to use when necessary and a person doesn’t suffer from a vitamin deficiency due to the body’s inability to store vitamins.

On the other hand, the body can store vitamin content that is fat soluble. The body will store the vitamin content in your fat cells so that it can be used when required. A person does not need to consume as many of these fat soluble vitamins on as frequent a basis as they do with water soluble vitamins. The fat cells store vitamin A, D, E, and K as these are all fat soluble vitamins.

It is very important to store vitamin supplements correctly so that the beneficial qualities of these are not diminished. The best way to store vitamin supplements is in a container with a screw top lid and to keep the container in a dry place. When you store vitamin supplements it is a good idea to check the expiration date to make sure they are not outdated.. The vitamin content of supplements cannot be guaranteed if you store vitamin tablets past their use by date.
