2015 Kickoff – Success Mottos from Darren Hardy’s Presentation

By all accounts, the 2015 Las Vegas Kickoff event was an unmitigated success. Guests who sought to hone their business-building skills were privy to an outstanding presentation from Darren Hardy, Founding Editor of SUCCESS magazine.

We’ve taken the liberty of compiling some key success mottos, taken directly from Darren’s presentation:

  • You cannot own success. Rent is due everyday.
  • Success is earned by HARD WORK. There are no shortcuts.
  • Your diversity is your ADVANTAGE. It builds muscle NOT wounds.
  • Stop looking for the quick fix for success, happiness and wealth. You’ve just got to grind it out and work hard.
  • Success is earned one day and one step at a time. One decision at a time. One phone call at a time. One meeting at a time.
  • There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
  • In life, you will sufferone of two pains: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of discipline weighs ounces; the pain of regret weighs tons.
  • You are 100 percent responsible for what you do, don’t do and how you respond to what happens to you.
  • If you want to have more… you have to BECOME
  • Success is not something you pursue. Success is something you become. Who are you becoming?  Who do you have to become to have that thing you want?
  • LOVE FAILURE! TURN FEAR INTO FUN. CELEBRATE YOUR FAILURES.
  • Do something everyday that scares you.
  • Fear will hold you back. If you can turn fear into fun, the floodgates will open. Your potential will be released.

Darren has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs, top CEOs and other high-performance individuals. This veteran of the personal development industry has also interviewed such noteworthy achievers as: Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, Howard Schultz (Starbucks), Charles Schwab and Jeff Bezos (Amazon).

Now you can use his helpful tips to help build your LifeWave business!

Direct Selling Association – The Importance of LifeWave’s Membership

Anyone familiar with LifeWave knows that providing efficacious products is one of our highest priorities as a company. As evidenced by our membership in the Direct Selling Association (DSA), this same commitment to integrity also applies to how we conduct business.

The DSA is the national trade association of leading firms that manufacture and distribute goods and services sold directly to consumers. Membership in this revered organization requires adherence to a strong set of ideals.

In fact, the DSA’s Code of Ethics is the foundation of its commitment to ethical business practices and consumer service. Every member company pledges to abide by these standards and procedures as a condition of admission and continuing membership.

It’s important to note that our connection to the DSA also goes beyond our membership. LifeWave President, Mike Collins, filled executive leadership roles for two of Network Marketing’s largest and most successful companies before joining our company. During this time, he was also an active participant in the DSA, and served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Direct Selling Education Foundation for six years.

“This important chapter in my career taught me a whole new approach to management, one that encourages and incentivizes people towards greatness they often don’t even know they have,” says Mike. “It also made me intimately familiar with the DSA, the preeminent organization for ensuring ethical business practices in our industry.”

LifeWave Members should find comfort in knowing that our company so naturally aligns with the DSA’s mission. Further, that our executive Leaders are extremely well versed in its respective requirements and protocols. Of course, we’re equally fortunate to have Members who uphold these ever-important values.

 

Great Tips for Enrolling New Members

To enroll new Members in the back office, start by clicking the “Organization” tab at the top of the page and then choosing “Enroll New” in the left-side navigation. Once they agree to our Electronic Consent form and choose a country of residence, they can then choose the enrollment package that’s most suitable.

Next, enrollees are required to enter personal information for their business center. It’s crucial that this personal information is accurate, so please ensure that new Members are as thorough and careful as possible when completing this part of the process.

The next page lists Autoship options, which is a great way to remain in active status without having to login to the system and place a monthly order. Those not interested in our Autoship program can continue to the next page, where they can add additional items to the enrollment package order. This saves them from having to place a separate order and pay additional shipping.

Next comes the Order Confirmation page, which is for verifying the order, choosing a preferred shipping method and entering the chosen form of payment.

Lastly, please be sure to set a Preferred Placement before enrolling new Members. Do this by logging in to the back office and choosing “My Profile” in the top right portion of the page and then “Preferred Placement” in the left-side navigation. To finish, use the pull-down option to choose either “Left Leg” or “Right Leg”, and click the “Save Changes” button.

Please reach out to LifeWave Customer Service with any questions or concerns, and good luck enrolling new Members!

Use Social Media to Promote Your LifeWave Business

Building your LifeWave business and engaging in social media share some striking similarities. Both begin with a single person and lead to numerous connections, which can lead to a virtually endless amount of more connections. And like your LifeWave business, there are some pretty easy ways to expand your network using social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.

Here are five helpful tips* on using social media to maximize your LifeWave business:

  1. To start with, keep it simple – Select either Facebook or Twitter, and familiarize yourself on how to use that particular site. Once you’re comfortable, then consider moving on to another outlet/site.
  2. Avoid personal memoirs – Only write about your experiences if it’s relevant on a business/networking level, and avoid shameless product promotions. Providing valuable content will help your network of followers grow.
  3. Share, share and share some more – Sharing valuable information is one of the most important ways to use social media effectively. One of LifeWave’s main goals with social media is posting content that’s inspiring enough for our Members to share. This provides you with engaging information to post on your personal business pages, and saves you time searching for content elsewhere.
  4. Align your business and social media objectives – The goal is to inform and educate about your LifeWave business and ultimately attract more prospects. You won’t see amazing numbers overnight, but a little patience and persistence will pay off. Ultimately, the more these two endeavors align, the better your business results will be.
  5. Build on your success – Review how people react to each post. Instead of reinventing the wheel, keep doing what works best. Impactful content will generate more ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ on Facebook and more ‘retweets’ and ‘mentions’ on Twitter.
