What does success mean to you?

Is it just obtaining that financial goal you dreamed of?

Or maybe it’s getting to a specific level in a particular career, sport, etc…?

Or maybe it’s purchasing that one car you always dreamed of.

The misconception about success is that many people believe it’s only obtaining that end result and that’s not true. It’s way more than that.

I meet and rub elbows with successful people everyday online and offline. As a matter of fact successful people read my blog posts everyday.

Yes, I’m talking about you!! Even further, a lot of successful people comment on my posts and share the information with others.

You see, the one thing I like about team sports is that they work together to obtain a goal. But the key is that they work together.

But how do they get to the point to where they become professionals in their sport and get the opportunity to play with their fellow teammates who are also professionals?

We see all of the glitz, glamour and “Bling Bling” but the one thing we tend to look over is the hard work behind this.

You see people like a Lebron James, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzsky, and Joe Montana work hard to get where they’re at. But it’s not just about the hard work.

It’s more than that! The one thing that made them who they are and help them attain their status was an effective daily routine. Yes a simple effective daily routine!

A couple of blog posts ago I talk about learning how to play the piano. My teacher gave me some exercises to do in order to become great. Now I know how to play 4 genres of music.

So lets go back to you reading this blog. Is reading blog posts and commenting a daily routine of yours? If so, then that’s success!

It’s not just obtaining your goals. It’s that process which is the effective daily routine that you have in order to obtain your goals.

Once people see how consistent you are, then you will start to become attractive. Our goal in this industry is to become attractive, but we got to put in the effective daily routine in order to attain it.

So what is your daily routine? What are you doing to attract the right prospects to you? What are you giving on a daily basis that’s of value in order to attract?

Here’s some of the things I do on a daily/weekly basis!

1. Share valuable quotes on a daily basic
2. Commment on blogs on a daily basic
3. Put out valuable content on my blogs every week
4. Read about new marketing tools every week
5. Share other people’s valuable content every day

If you don’t have an effective daily routine then these are some of things you can do in order for your to attract people to your business. Keep doing these things and you’ll see the difference in your business!!

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!!


Do any of you have friends or acquaintances that you haven’t talked to in a long time? Have you ever just thought about them and decided to call them out of the blue? Has anyone that you haven’t talked to in a long time just called you out of the blue? When they do, what do the both of you talk about?

Most people just want to catch up. They want to know where you’re living, how long you’ve been living there, what are you doing for a living, what do you do on the weekends for fun, how’s your family doing, etc…You just want to rebuild that connection with the other person and vice versa.

In network marketing this is basically a follow up. The problem is that most of us pick up the phone, call our prospects and either freeze up or go into a sales pitch.

If you do either of these two, then I would have to point you to “How To Win Friend’s And Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.

Now if you have read this book and you’re still looking for some type of guideline to follow, I found two rapport building tools that I stumbled upon that you can follow.

One is called FORM.





The most important thing about prospecting is your PROSPECT. You want to talk about the things that your prospect values the most which is usually Family, Occupation, and Recreation. Asking about the prospects family and where they grew up is a great way to start the conversation and spark interest.

Here’s example of one of the ways I start a conversation.

Hi, this is Sherman Smith from Mentoring For Free. We met over facebook the other day. How’s everything? Great!!! I just saw that you’re in Baltimore, MD. Did you grow up there? Do most of your family live in the area?

Once you build rapport the next thing you want to do is deliver the message. A great way to transition to the message is to say something like “The reason I called is because you asked about my opportunity” or “The reason that I called is that I remember you telling me that you were looking for other ways to make money.”

Another great tool to use is CAPI.

Common Ground




Common Ground is FOR (Family, Occupation, Recreation) and trying to find something in common with your prospect.

Next, after listening to your prospect, you want to affirm what they just said. For example, you may say something like “Ok, let me get this straight, you’re looking to make extra money because your job is making you take furlough days?”

Once you affirm what they were just telling you, a really important step is to ask for permission which is a step that a lot of people skip. For example “I have something that you may or may not be interested in. Would you like for me to share it with you?”

Last but not least is to share the information

The most important of these is to build rapport with your prospects by focusing on them to figure out if what you have may be what they’re looking for. This is an essential way to establish business partners or to have paying customers.

MLM Is About You!!

How many of you have witnessed this? You go to your company’s meeting and they call everyone on stage to get recognized for their hard work and how many people they recruited within the last week. Some people say 1 person, other’s say 2, while some others say 3 people. This is all good, except for that one kid that just graduated from high school and only been with the company for a couple of weeks. He or she gets on the microphone and tells everyone how many people they recruited and it’s some outrageous number like 15 or 20?

Your shocked! Your enraged! You’re Jealous! You tell yourself that they must be lying. You just can’t believe what you just heard. And what makes matters worse is that you go up to meet him or her and you find out that they’re just as dorky and corny as they will ever be. What gives???

They’re just lucky!! But wait, is it just luck or is there something more to it? But you’re leaders keep telling you to always keep it simple, right? So how did this recent high school grad recruit all of these people by just keeping it simple?

Time and time again you will here stories like this and the more we hear about them, the more we wonder how do they do this in such a short amount of time.

In Mike Dlouhy’s “Success In 10 Steps” he mentions something called “The Spider Web Effect”. He says that people who build webs tend to be lucky while people who don’t build webs tend not to be lucky.

What does he mean by this? Well, everyone says that network marketing is about building relationships with people right? Well think of it like this: the more relationships you build, the more contacts you have in your life, the less bridges you burn, the more people that have a positive feeling about you, the more people you reach out to help, the more likely you will be “lucky”.

So in case of the recent high school graduate, he probably been on facebook since he was a freshman in high school, and have been building relationships with different people since then.

Not only can this happened to a high school kid, but it could happened to anyone, especially you!!! You just have to put in the work and make it fun!

If you found this information to be helpful, please share it with others. The more people that you reach out to help the better it is for you in the long run.

By the way, click on the link entitled “Success In 10 Steps” to download the free ebook and learn how you can grow your business and be “lucky”. Remember that you are in control of your luck!
