What is an Avatar? Here is’s definition

an embodiment or personification, as of a principle, attitude, or view of life.

As you probably already know I dance salsa just about every weekend. The one thing that a lot of people don’t know is that there are about 7 different styles of salsa.

I dance 3 of those styles which are L.A. Style, NY mambo style and Cuban style (which is where I’m strongest in). In order for you to know the difference you have to really be into the salsa scene.

This is where the term Avatar comes in. I got the inspiration from Fred Williams blog post on figuring out the avatar of your customers or target market which is a really great post. Go to his blog called Anatomy Of An Avatar – Who Are You Marketing To?

I first start dancing salsa in 2005 and as time progress my style became more and more Cuban. Part of it is because of the way I naturally dance and the other part of it is because I started hanging around more Cubans and listen to more Cuban music.

So pretty much everywhere I go people would assume that I’m Cuban. As a matter of fact, they will come up to me and start speaking Spanish. So everywhere I go I attract a lot of Spanish speakers, specifically those from the Caribbean.

Although I go to the L.A. salsa clubs where everyone dance L.A. style, I tend stick out because I dance Cuban salsa. This most definitely draws attention and from time to time people would just come up to me and ask if I teach.

Now think about this for a minute. Despite my natural ability to dance, I hung out with Cubans and listen to Cuban music. I started dancing like Cubans so every salsa club I go to they assume that I’m Cuban. I’m American but I also would be considered a “Cuban Avatar” according to the definition.

Now lets take me out of the picture and put you into the picture. What if you want to be this great leader and attract all of these other great leaders and they ask you to teach them how to be a great leader. What do you think you would have to do to get to this level?

Well maybe you need to start hanging around other leaders, read leadership books, listen to audios on leadership, go to webinars on leadership, go to conference on leadership, and when it comes down to it, just live and breathe leadership by becoming its avatar!!

By becoming it’s avatar you’ll start to feel like a leader, speak like a leader, walk like a leader, and the list goes on and on. Once you get that going you will be transformed into a leader. So what are you waiting for? Why are you procrastinating? Do what you have to do to become a leader!

Here’s some books I recommend:

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell
How Successful People Think by John C. Maxwell
Developing the Leader Within You by John C. Maxwell
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson
How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude by Napolean Hill

If you’re looking to take your business to the next level or are looking to start a home business, the best thing to do is to educate yourself. The problem is most people like to jump into an opportunity without being educated on the business or their compensation plan. This can result in years and years of frustration and failure. If you’re having problems growing your business and you are a serious entrepreneur then I can help you.

You ever heard of those stories about someone that came from humble beginnings and all of a sudden became this big success? If you were to look at how they were and where they came from you would stereotype them as not achieving the success that they now have. Sad isn’t it? But it’s true!!!

So how in the world did they become this really big success?

I’ve done my research and I noticed something that’s very common in every successful person. This one ingredient that they had helped give them the tools to become successful. Once I put it all together, I told myself that I had to get me one of these. I mean, if every successful person had one of these, why don’t I have one as well as anyone I knew at that time?

No, I’m not talking about the latest and greatest tools you can download and install from the internet. Even before the internet was even thought of, successful people had these.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m talking about a Mentor!

Every successful athlete, businessman/woman, TV star, etc… had someone to help guide them to succeed in whatever they did. Think about it, when you see a successful person being interviewed about their life on TV, they always talk about the one person that inspired them whether it be a teacher, parent, or athletic coach.

Mentors are the ones that’s going to inspire you, encourage you, and see you as who you can be. They’re the ones that been through the trials and tribulations and can tell you what to go for and what to avoid.

In network marketing there are a lot of mentoring programs that have people that will coach you to success. A lot of network marketers want a step by step process on how to become successful in their business. Mentoring programs is a great option to get involved with if you’re looking for some type of guidance.

Unfortunately, most network marketers either fail to get a mentor or they simply just do not listen to their own mentors. As a result they fail in their businesses.

The mentoring program that I got involved in has helped me tremendously. My mentor has showed me a more proficient way to market as well as show me what to avoid. Not only is she my mentor, but she also became a very close friend.
