In June of 2006 I ran into my co worker’s husband at my job. We started talking and I found out that he taught piano to elementary school kids and for as long as I could remember I always have wanted to learn. We exchange numbers and by the next month I was learning under him.

I was so excited and wanted to learn all of these different songs and was hoping to become a “professional” within a short amount of time. He told me to do these series of exercises on a daily basis.

For those that understand music, he told me to practice my major and minor scales, blues scales, circle of fifths exercises, chromatics, arpeggios, and a couple of practice riffs everyday for at least 30 minutes. And as you know this can become quite tedious and boring.

Now at first I was really excited because everything was so new to me, but after doing it for months and months, I didn’t really see the point of it. It had gotten real boring and I felt like I was not going anywhere.

By November of that same year, I wanted to learn how to play Vince Guaraldi’s “Linus and Lucy” from the Charlie Brown cartoons. For those who don’t play the piano you have to train your left hand to play one rhythm and your right hand to play a different rhythm. The notes and rhythm in this piece are syncopated which can be a really big challenge and at the same time you have to keep both hands in sync with each other.

I practice just the first part of this piece for about a month and finally got it down. It felt like all blood, sweat, and tears but I finally got it!!!

Since I work in a school district I would practice in the high school choir room. Sometimes the choir teacher would walk in to listen, and he would give me some tips. After he heard me play the first part of Linus and Lucy he gave me a lot of compliments and told me that he could never play Linus and Lucy because of it’s syncopation even though he’s been playing piano for over 40 years.

This was a great shock to me but yet motivational. I figured since he plays piano very, very well, especially in the classics, he would know how to play this song quite well. But like they say, to each his/her own.

Now I can play a variety of genres such as jazz, salsa, blues, R&B and I really thank my piano teacher for telling me to do those simple exercises to get to the point I am today.

This post wasn’t to impress you but to impress upon you on what it takes to become successful. It’s your daily steps and your daily routine that you have to take in order to reach your goals.

Perseverance is the key that’s going to take you up that yellow brick road to success. So keep putting out those positive quotes, keep writing in your blogs, keep calling your prospects, keep meeting people online and offline, just keep doing what you have to do and at the same time for your motivation keep your eyes on the prize!!!!

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.

MLM Is About You!!


Everyone wants to be successful at something whether it be in sports, school, or at their jobs. In order for us to become successful we need some type of guidance from someone like a coach, teacher, or a trainer at a job. These are the people that keeps us motivated and points us in the right direction. With these people plus hard work and dedication from our own efforts eventually we reach our goals. We give ourselves a pat on a back and call it a day. The problem is that it doesn’t stop there, especially in the field of network marketing.

The internet has change the network marketing game completely. It’s made it a lot easier to market our opportunities to not only in our local areas, but around the globe, especially with the popularity of social media. The problem is, a lot of us market a little bit too much of our opportunities and not giving enough value to all of the individuals we meet.

Everyone has some type of profile on these social media sites. One good practice is to get to know the person you’re prospecting by reading their profiles. We’re in the people business and one of the things you want to do is attract people to you since you’re the one representing your company. Reading a persons profiles and asking questions about them is a good way to start to attract people. You may find someone that’s interested in an opportunity to work from home or someone that already have a home business and are looking for another one.

Once you start to get to know your prospects, you still don’t want to expose your business to them. Instead, you want to give your prospects some value. Value is important because it builds a lot more trust and faith in you. This is where your blogs come in. Your blogs should contain information about you and techniques to grow a network marketing business.

Hello everyone, my name is Sherman Smith and I reside in Sunny Southern California.  What I like to do is tell you a little bit about myself and give you my story on how I was formally introduce to starting a home business and give you some tips and insight on how you can become  success at any home business.

First of all, as of right now, I’m a Computer Tech/Salsa Dancer/Salsa Instructor/Entrepreneur all rolled up in one and then some. Just from this title you can see that my life is pretty full and I’m loving it. As you probably may have already heard, everyone goes into they’re story about how their parents taught them to get good grades, go to school so they can get a good job with great benefits. Well I’m no exception. Been there done that. Don’t get me wrong, there’s not wrong with getting your degree. The problem is that as soon as people get the degree and get the great job, they stop growing. They hinder themselves from taking advantage of all the great opportunities that’s out there. I didn’t want to feel “stuck” and I’m pretty sure that you don’t want to feel stuck as well.

My advice to you is to start a business and create passive income. Easier said than done, right? On the contrary, if you really have the mind set then you will look for the information. Evidently you are looking for something else or else you wouldn’t be reading this blog. Well my friend, I’m here to help and point you in the right direction.

Let’s go back some years so I can tell you why I started a business. Years ago after I graduated from college, I still had a hard time trying to find a job. When I did find a job, it didn’t pay that well. So what did I do? I went back to school so that I can find a job that pays me a dollar more an hour ????? Great plan right? Not!!! . After that low paying job, i found another job which payed 5 dollars more an hour. Now that’s a big jump right?? The only problem was that after nine months of working there I was wrongfully terminated and didn’t find a job for another 7 months. By the time I found another job, my unemployment almost ran out. After I found another job, I luckily found 2 more jobs just in case I get let ago again. Great security right? Yea, but it was a bit miserable because I didn’t have too much free time.

Those were the dilemmas. What I wanted to know was how can I have a “job” that pays well with benefits, thats secure, and where I don’t have to work so many hours. Well a friend of mine told me to read a book by Robert Kiyosaki called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and that’s where my journey to financial freedom began. So if you haven’t read it already, I recommend that you read it because of how simple makes you understand how money works.

Now since I got my business up and running my goal is to help you. The one thing I want you to know about me and my team is that we’re a strong team of individuals with different backgrounds. We make it an effort to help those that really are serious and want to help themselves. Our main goal is to help you and people like you to become successful and build a bridge to your dreams and goals. We have teams of mentors, coaches, and training to assist you with the growth of your business. If you have never owned a business we will help you get started as well as point you in the right direction.

Another thing I like for you to know about the team is that we always try to get together to do fun things. This is a good way to socialize so that we can build and maintain relationships. We may get together for bowling, movie, paint balling, karaoke, barbeque, or of course salsa dancing. We’re not about business 24/7 although helping one another to become successful is really important to us. But sometimes you want to let your hair down.

Now I like to know why you want to start a business and earn money from home. Is it because you want to fire your boss? Do you want to spend more time with your family? Do you want to not worry about your bills? Are you looking to supplement an income? Are you looking for more time for yourself so that you can accomplish your goals? Are you looking for a change of lifestyle? Do you feel like you’re not making enough of an impact on society? There are an endless amount of reasons why you may want to start a business and this is a good start because it helps you build momentum so that you can stay consistent.

What I’d like to do with the following blogs is give you some type of direction so that whenever you decide to start a business you will know to some degree what tools and techniques to use to run your business and become successful. Feel free to visit my sites below.
