How it is working

I am setting a campaign for international with MyLunchBasket.
I would like to do a domestic campaign with GroganManor account, like we did years ago, as you know many do not know what to do or they want to know why.
Now I simplified it to what you used to share about depth and leveraging. I tell them (builders) to get mindset to target market 20 locations; for me it is cities, some say people and then help those get the average of two, help one of those two get one, for a total of four.
I call it the Power of 83
You, me, and an experienced marketer, come in and target a city, find 20 get two each, help one get one. (That’s what naturally happens). According to Maxwell in his book Tipping Point it takes 60-80 people to see a group take on its own identity with 2-5 Leader types (sound familiar). 20/40/20 plus you me and an experienced marketer equal 83, right?
So how do you get started? Very very simple,
Get a blank single sheet of paper and write one through twenty, once the sheet is full we have done our job.
Now we will help you along the way, just tell me when you want to get started.

Now [your name here], I understand it sounds oversimplified. The best marketers and investors will tell you one thing you must have to get success is an exit strategy. Our exit strategy in each city is 20/40/20, then we move to next city. Just ask yourself what place you want to have in the matrix, Top or bottom? Then, ask who do you already have that can handle twenty accounts, follow up, birthday, holidays, anniversaries, you know the human art of the business? Who has that kind of heart, that you already know? Can they really do the job? If so lets get in touch with them and get this first two today.

Once perfected we can get each account of 4 set up in less than six hours of phone calls, and actually ordering.

If they are not sure we have over 20 locations across country where it can be explained in person and other countries. It’s a win/win/win.

We put them back in list by geography and target demographics by location, every 90 days with a where and when meetings place. ‘Never stop giving’ information away.

Let me know how I can help, meanwhile I got this fireball in [your town] that won’t leave me alone. 😉

Any advice or assistants is greatly appreciated.

If I understand correctly, everything I do helps you cycle 😊

Carpé Diem

Vemma team!

Here it is, a couple of weeks into July, middle of summer, every excuse in the world to slow down a bit, take a vacation…but you guys are crushing it!

Before I get into a few stats, I’ve got to let you in on some huge news. For only the 8th time in Vemma history, we have a new Royal Ambassador…Brad Alkazin IS our newest Royal Ambassador!! At any age, let alone 26, this is a huge accomplishment!! Brad will earn about $85K this month and the guy never stops working! What a great example he’s setting for this next generation of leadership that’s rising up from the Young People Revolution!

Now, back to the stats (first 13 days of July ’11 vs. ’12). Get a load of this, since the incentives launched about 2 weeks ago, sales up 65%! Auto-delivery orders up 43%, Verve sales up 83% and enrollments…wait for it…up 104%!! Team, this is incredible and I wish I could hug each one of you. These next 6 months are really going to set the stage for an incredible 2013!

On the app front, Vemma 2.0 for Android is coming next week! This should pretty much double the usage, excitement and momentum in your teams! Also, Bod•ē 2.0 is 30 days away and will feature Chris and Heidi Powell in 84 daily video tips, fast food options and a bunch of other cool stuff!

On the international front, we’re ahead of schedule on the opening of Mexico. It will happen this Monday! I’m looking forward to some great things from this market. I just got off the phone with Executive leader and #YPR crusader Jed Buenaluz who’s in Mexico right now pre-building young people. Glad I decided to bring Verve down there. Here’s a story he shared with me from his Facebook page:
“Breaking News Sam Infante is beyond a stud. At 21, he went from BRAND PARTNER to DIAMOND in 4 DAYS!!!! Are you serious? Let’s Congratulate him! He hit 24 cycles in 1 week. TELL ME THIS ISN’T REAL! Sam we are proud of you! Executive this MONTH!!! – No breaks, Just Breaking Records — with Anthony Montisano and 7 others.”

Verve Nation, to say I’m impressed with what you young people are doing is an understatement! I hear amazing stories like this of just how fast you’re moving up the ranks and as a company owner, I’m totally committed to providing you with everything you need to take just the Verve brand alone to $1 billion. I read this article about Youth Joblessness: No end in sight. It makes me think this #YoungPeopleRevolution has no end in sight either!

Finally, thanks for all the well wishes for the birth of our twins. If you want to see recent photos, check out my Facebook page whenever you get a chance.

I appreciate you, enjoy the weekend!


Spiritual Quest

How to start?

Everyone knows they are special, that there is something more than this birth, life, and death. It resonates somewhere deep inside all of us. We spend our lifetime trying to reach beyond what we are to be more in one way or another. Sometimes we make a mess of it. Sometimes we make progress. But too often we drift along hoping someone will open a door for us. If only they would, we’d run right through. Or would we?

This is the first crucial step, wanting to run through to that something more in us. Being willing to do it. Craving it. Being desperate for it. I am here because I have been one of those for many years, and I know there must be others. I want to throw out some methods, some methods that work. Tools, you know. They are for your consideration. The rest is up to you. And how they can blend together and leverage each other like magic. It is not a new idea, it is natural enough. How many balls can anyone keep in the air? But if you want to really make progress in this life, you must multi-channel your efforts in the direction you want to go. It is like that in all things. Spiritual practice is no different.

We will be talking about many inward ways here — the ways into the divine you. How to really open things up. Are you ready for that? Do you long for it? Not everyone does. But everyone will sooner or later. In fact, a little practice fans the fire of divine longing. Just a little bit of practice opens the door enough so that the divine desire wells up. Then we are on fire and want more practice and more powerful ways in. It is a kind of addiction — a divine addiction. I confess to being an addict to this spiritual practice game. It is an ecstatic spiral that pulls us out of our limited earth perception. Everything will look different, first just a little, and later on, a lot different. So if you are not wanting to become divinely inspired, divinely addicted, better stay away. Because the best means are here. If you set your heart and mind to it, you can do it. Honest. And then nothing will ever be the same. You will laugh and laugh when you see how it really is.

Who Am I ?
Think about yourself for a minute. Who are you? Most of us point to our body and say, “This is me.” We all sense something more, but the best we can do is observe our body and say, “This is me. This is my body. My name is Ela Marie. I can think and feel, and that is part of me too.” If you were to say to someone, “I am something behind all this that you see, and behind all this that I think and feel. I am consciousness,” might it seem a bit strange? Why strange? Because we are identified with our perceptions of our body/minds and this world. It is a habit, a deeply biologically and neurologically ingrained habit. Not only that. Because we habitually imprint our sense of self on our body/mind, we see our physical surroundings as separate from ourselves. So the world becomes a stranger to itself. Through our process of identified perception the one has become many.

The process of joining begins with making direct contact with our inner self, our consciousness. Once we have established a foothold in consciousness, we can proceed from there with many other things. Becoming aware of our deepest consciousness on a regular basis is peaceful and pleasant and can bring immediate relief to a hectic, busy life. It is accomplished with meditation or praying. This is the first practice we will learn on our road to union, on the way to binding ourselves back together. It is a good first step that brings a big return for a small daily effort.

“Daily effort?” you say. This is what we will talk about next. For without a commitment to a daily effort, you will be wasting your time here, and anywhere else.
