Time To "Skill Up"
I love the last two weeks of December for a couple of reasons.
First, I have always had amazing results in my business in December...I think mostly because everyone else is taking time off and thinking that it isn't a great time to build.
Second, this is the time of year that I really focus on my skills. I read more books, buy and absorb lots of training products and I tend to write more emails and blog posts.
I'm pretty sure that part of me is thinking about the goals that I want to accomplish in 2012 and I know that if I want to get better and accomplish more, I need to become more (why the focus on personal development).
My focus on personal development can be traced back to the time I spent in Amway (or World Wide Group) back in the day. I didn't make money in Amway but I did come away with some skills.
I know that I am preaching to the choir here but there are a lot of people in this world that spend a lot of time complaining about their circumstances but rarely devote any time or energy to making themselves a better person and creating more value in the world as a human.
Skills can make you rich, my friends.
What if you spent the next six months developing a skill?
Let's assume the skill is in demand and you are able to train others, create a product or sell something online related to the skill. If you sold $50 a day worth of training or consulting or whatever, you just created a business that does over $18,000 a year.
Want to earn six-figures online?
Create enough value in the marketplace to sell $300 a day.
(This is totally connected to what I do with my Network Marketing business by the way.)
Once you create something that is in-demand, the selling part is very easy.
For example, I created MLM Blog Secrets and MLM Blog Code because I knew that people wanted to learn how to attract business by blogging.
Now, whenever I am on Facebook, I almost always have someone send me a link to their blog, asking me what I think about it. Typically I can offer a couple of suggestions and send them on their way, but a couple of weeks ago, I launched another product called MLM Blog Theme that (as far as I know) is the only WordPress theme specifically designed with Network Marketers in mind.
MLM Blog Theme includes an easy way to get connected with social media, a pop-up widget, a sidebar opt-in widget...basically all of the bells and whistles you need to create a blog built for marketing your business.
Today, someone sent me their blog and I took one look at it and realized that MLM Blog Theme would be be a huge help. So I told the other person about it. (Yes an incredibly complex selling technique.)
Right now, I am working on my skills in writing. What are you working on?
