Past and Future

As I do this time every year, I take some time to work on my goals and lay out a plan for the new year. As part of that process I reflect back on this past year and make some predictions about the year to come.

I just want to start out by saying that I am so grateful to God for bringing so many opportunities and wonderful people into my life this past year and I look forward, with God's help, to continue this progress into 2014. 

It’s been 2 years since I lost my community pharmacy job and to date I never found another position in community pharmacy. I did land a consulting pharmacy contract. I am very happy in this position because it provides me with plenty of time to continue to grow my business. 

I mentioned last year how I made some connections with some high income earners that took me under their wing. With their help the home business I started continues to grow. My team has grown to nearly 100 team members and 200 customers in the past 12 months, giving me the ability to show others how they too can create additional income and create time freedom for themselves and their families working from home. 

My blogs are doing well with over 29,000 page views, 222,000 video views and over 1.7 million minutes of videos watched. My team and I have taken an active part in 6 different expos in 4 states and have hosted many more speaking events where Dr Wallach, Brandy Brogdon and I have been the featured speakers. I've produced several radio spots and look forward to expanding my role in radio with some guest appearances in 2014. 

With all these accomplishments over the past year what excites me most however are the stories from so many people that have expressed gratitude over the improvements they have seen in their health by following the advice of Dr Wallach and taking the 90 for life challenge.

Now looking forward to 2014, There are so many different economic indicators and events that are still coming together, the possibilities for 2014 are overwhelming. As a good friend of mine and one of those high income earners I mentioned says, “to create true wealth, you need to position yourself in front of a trend.” Guys that is what has me the most excited. A lot of trends are still coming together and I believe for the first time in my life I am in the right place at the right time. 

The healthcare reform is much worse than any of us predicted. Millions of people are losing their health insurance coverage. Also companies faced with higher cost because of healthcare reform continue to reduce their work-forces. We are seeing an unprecedented number of people in the healthcare field lose their jobs. 

Also as a result of these problems I believe the stock market will be very volatile quite possibly losing much of the gain it has experienced recently. 

News college graduates continue to not be able to find gainful employment and many of them are deep in student loan debt. 

As all the baby boomers feel the pinch in their retirement accounts, as all these unemployed healthcare workers continues to grow and as college graduates continue to be unable to find gainful employment we will see a huge influx into the home based business industry. My team and I will be there to help them make the transition. If you want to learn more about what we are doing visit my website,

I don’t usually do this but one of my mentors in this industry recently made a video blog on this subject so I wanted to share it with you so I included a link to it along with this blog.

What do you think about most? - Post 308

Today I want to reflect on a quote from Earl Nightingale, “You become what you think about most of the time”

In 1989 a Buddhist spiritual text called "How to live without Fear and Worry" stated:

     “The thought manifests as the word,
      The word manifests as the deed,
      The deed develops into a habit,
      And the habit hardens into character.

The words in this text actually echo what Buddha said more than 2500 years ago, “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.”

In more modern times this sentiment was expressed in relation to sowing and reaping. In 1950 in the Sunday News and Tribune of Jefferson City Missouri it was expressed as:

     “Sow a thought, reap a word; 
      Sow a word, reap a deed; 
      Sow a deed, reap a habit; 
      Sow a habit, reap a character; 
      Sow a character, reap a destiny.

My favorite version of this idea comes from an American entrepreneur, Frank Outlaw, late president of the Bi-Lo Stores. His version goes like this;

      “Watch your thoughts, they become your words;
       Watch your words, they become actions;
       Watch your actions, they become habits; 
       Watch your habits, they become character;
       Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

I've been in the marketing business most of my life and I have heard different versions of what Earl Nightingale said but I never really understood it until last year when I watched a movie called “The Secret.” After I watched this film I reflected on the ideas that where expressed about the law of attraction. I began to understand just how powerful our thoughts are; just how much what we think about affects our lives in every way. I began to see examples of this idea in scripture, I began to see how people like Joyce Meyers and Joel Osteen are able to tap into this concept with their motivational sermons. There are so many things today that consume our thoughts.

I know that in my own life I have found that when I changed what I thought about most; when I began to concentrate on what I wanted to achieve or have, instead of concentrating on my failures or what I lack; only then things began to change. Believe me, when you are unemployed there are lots of things you lack in your life that you can dwell on but I decided throughout the entire ordeal I would concentrate my thoughts on what I wanted to accomplish in life; to concentrate on all the things that I wanted to become and to have.

And you know what?

I felt better every day. I had purpose. I felt as though I could have or become anything and with that new mindset I saw opportunities before me that I would have never seen otherwise. I met people that would make a difference in my life, people like Dr Wallach and Brandy Brogdon, I would have never met them had I not been concentrating on future success instead of present or past failure.

Over these past couple years, because of my unemployment, I began working more on my personal development. I began reading books written by some of the most influential and successful people of our time as well as throughout history. Book after book, Video after video, Speaker after speaker, Andrew Carnegie, Dale Carnegie, Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Vince Lombardi, they all seemed to express one common theme. The same thing that Earl Nightingale said, “You become what you think about most of the time.

This idea has really consumed me these past couple years. “You become what you think about most of the time” begs to answer the question, what do I think about most?

Jim Rohn said, “When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.

What do I want?

A job? More money? Things? Time freedom?

What do I really want?

Zig Ziglar said, “The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.” And “Outstanding people have one thing in common: an absolute sense of mission.

So what do I really want?

According to Napoleon Hill, “The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
He also said that “Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence.

So what do I want? Where do I start?

Jim Rohm said “If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us?"
So that’s where I started. I looked at where I’ve been and where I would like to go in the future.

Albert Einstein once said “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” so I asked myself the question, if I keep on doing what I’ve been doing will I get there?

Well of course the answer was no, so for the first time in my life I mapped out both short term and long term goals and I began exploring ways to achieve them. I began thinking outside the box. I began to activate the law of attraction and to follow what Earl Nightingale said, “You become what you think about most of the time” and that is when I began to meet people like Dr Wallach, Dr Corey Gold, Tom Chenault, Dave and Barb Pitcock. That’s when I took a deeper look into the home based business industry that they were all involved in and I began to see just what the possibilities truly where. Every one of these people that I met followed the idea that Napoleon Hill stated so well, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

So a year ago I took a leap of faith and teamed up with all of these fine people because as I saw it, as Napoleon Hill also said “The person who takes no chances generally has to take whatever is left when others are through” and I was tired of the crumbs that where left over.  I was sick and tired of working long hours making others rich while I clung on to the hope that I would be able to keep my health. Why? So I can work for them until I died or until they decided I was no longer of use for them?

\Well it has been a year now since I began following these folks and became a part of their team and I have created a steady stream of income; a residual income; an income that continues to come in despite the fact that I have taken some time away from the business these last few weeks to do some personal development training and planning for next year. A stream of income that will continue to grow until I replace what I used to make working 70 hours a week for someone else.

To have that freedom is what consumes my thoughts most now. Freedom to spend time with my family and not worry about my income. Freedom to not be owned by a corporate job. Freedom to become all that I can become while helping others.

As Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it” and I have now proven to myself that I truly can do it.

What do you think about most?

Do you think about the things you don’t have?

Your lack of financial means to do the things you want, to have the things you desire?

Are you consumed with thoughts about your debt?

Maybe you think about and worry about your health, how you can’t seem to lose those pounds you want to shed. Maybe its your high blood pressure or diabetes.

Or maybe you think most about your lack of time; time to spend with your spouse or children. That field trip you missed and the weekend scouting or sporting events you weren't able to attend.

Are your thoughts consumed by your job, whether or not you will get that promotion, or constantly worried about whether or not you will keep your job or even be able to find another job?

What do you really want?

I think for most of us, certainly for me, what it came right down to is Freedom! I wanted freedom and my guess is so do you.

You want options.

You want to be of value, to make an impact.

What would that feel like?

What would it feel like to be free?

What would it feel like not to have an alarm clock?

What would it feel like to take your son or daughter to the dentist without asking your boss’s permission? To go to that school play or Christmas pageant?

What would it feel like?

There is an even bigger question though, WHO do you want to be?

What really changed for me is when I asked myself that question. I no longer wanted to be a statistic, working 70 hours per week; trading my time for money. I no longer wanted to be someone that questioned my worth. I no longer wanted to be someone that moped around and just wasn't present. I no longer wanted to be that.

So who did I want to be?

I wanted to be someone that made an impact. Not just in the area of their health but also in the life. I wanted to be someone that touched, moved and inspired people. Who did I want to be, not just my why, because I have had the same why most of my life and I thought while I was working those 70 hour weeks, I thought I was working toward my why?

It was focusing on who I wanted to be that really drove me and gave me  the vision to keep going. Dr Michael Beckwith says “Pain pushes you until vision pulls you” so as the new year approaches I ask you, what vision is pulling you after all “You become what you think about most?”

What would it mean to you if over the next 12 months your job was just an option? What would that mean to you? How would that make you feel?
Maybe you have a job you love and you wouldn't want to leave that job but what would it mean if it was just an option. If you had plenty of money in the bank, would you still continue to do it?

My goal is to help you; give you strategies; teach you a duplicable system to have that option 12 months from now. Notice folks I'm saying in the next 12 months. What I will share with you can absolutely change your life if you choose for it to, but its not going to change your life tomorrow. This isn't some crazy get rich quick, honey we won the lottery thing, I'm just telling you what I'm going to share with you, if you just take it and really run with it, it can change your life.

I hope Dec 2014 you look back at this video and you say that this is where my life changed. I see all the hype out there, all the programs that boast, I made $30,000 in my first 48 hours, it's just bologna, stop it already, we are a profession not a sideshow, this is a profession, don't fall for the phony get rich quick schemes. I want to share with you a business system that will work now, will work next week, next month, next year, the year after, so a year from now your "working" will be an option.

8 out of 9 Advisory Committe Docs Worked for Big Pharma

Did you know? This story is from a few years ago but I just wanted to share it again. Especially after the recent release of the new statin guidelines.
According to a report by USA Today on October 16, 2004 ("Cholesterol Guidelines Become a Morality Play") eight of the nine doctors who formed a committee in 2001 to advise the government on cholesterol guidelines for the public were making money from the very same companies that made the cholesterol lowering drugs that they were urging millions of Americans to take. For example, one of the committee members, Dr. H. Bryan Brewer, was the Chief of the Molecular Disease Branch at the National Institute of Health. He worked as a consultant or speaker for 10 different pharmaceutical companies, making over $100,000 over three years while he was on the committee, and sat on one of their boards (Los Angeles Times, December 22, 2004, "The National Institutes of Health: Public Servant or Private Marketer?"). Dr. Brewer left the NIH in 2005 in the midst of adverse publicity about potential conflicts of interest. Nassir Ghaemi, MD, a psychiatrist at Emory University, was quoted in the Emory Academic Exchange (February, 2007) as saying, "Critics say we are being influenced and don't realize it—that drug companies are smarter than we are and know a lot more about human psychology than we think, and they're probably right about that to some extent."

And we wonder why so many drugs today don't cure any more. They only treat symptoms and cause more side effects so more drugs can be used to treat more symptoms. We must take personal responsibility for our health. Let's talk!

A Billion Dollar Decision That's Not Good For Your Health

I feel compelled to do a post today in response to medical news that is all over the news wires today about statin drugs, that's the class of drugs that lower your cholesterol levels. The LA Times Headline says "about 70 million Americans could take statins under new guidelines"

Let me just read the first few paragraphs of the article,

"The number of Americans taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs is set to double under new guidelines unveiled Tuesday by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Assn.

The goal of prescribing statins to as many as 70 million people is to reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes in the United States, not merely to get patient's LDL cholesterol – the "bad" kind that's most closely linked to disease risk – into an ideal range, experts said.

The new game plan for statins represents a stark shift from approaches embraced by cardiologists and primary care physicians for most of the past decade. Now, doctors will be urged to treat a wider range of healthier patients, including those likely to suffer stroke or heart disease as they age.

The new guidelines distinguish between patients who would benefit most from high-dose statin therapy and those who can take a lower dose less likely to cause side effects, such as muscle fatigue, a slight rise in blood sugar and, in rare cases, hemorrhagic strokes and a toxic breakdown of muscle tissue called rhabdomyolysis.

Cholesterol is essential for digestion, hormonal balance and cell function, but at high concentrations can gum up arteries. Statins reduce cholesterol by blocking the liver's production of the waxy substance. Americans spent $21.3 billion on cholesterol-lowering medications in 2010, including statins marketed under such brand names as Crestor, Lipitor and Zocor.

Under the new guidelines, physicians should prescribe statin medications to all patients with high odds of suffering a heart attack or stroke in the short-term — that is, those who have had such an event already, patients with Type 2 diabetes, and those with exceptionally high levels of LDL cholesterol linked to familial risk.

But the guidelines also recommend that patients with a 7.5% risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack over the next decade be prescribed statin medication as well."

Not surprising the Wall Street Journal reports "AstraZeneca Applauds the Release of New US Guideline for Management of Blood Cholesterol"

It's not surprising because according to WebMD AstraZeneca's Crestor was the number 1 most prescribed drug last year with 23.7 million prescriptions and total sales of $5.3 billion dollars. These new guidelines are expected to double the number of prescriptions for the statin drug class having a major positive impact on AstraZeneca's bottom line.

Another amazing development, in a story reported in Endocrinology Update on Nov 4 past American Medical Association president Professor Kerryn Phelps advised the public via her Twitter account to consider stopping their statins. She twitted her comment while watching ABCs series called Heart of the Matter Part 2: Cholesterol Drug War which claimed that the medical profession and the public had been duped into believing that statins were essential for preventing death from heart disease.

One of the studies that they used to come up with these guidelines is a meta analysis by the Cochrane group that added up results from 18 different trials to conclude that statins reduced deaths from all causes in people with low risk of heart disease. Their conclusion was that if 1000 people took a statin over 5 years, 18 of them would avoid a major cardiovascular event. The British Medical Journal in October of this year argues that the "events" in the trials included procedures to improve blood flow to the heart and who knows if the person would have had a heart attack if this hadn't been done? It also says that the side-effects of statins such as increased risk of developing diabetes (about 10%) and muscle pain (50% more common) were not adequately reported. It further points out that all of the randomized trials in the Cochrane review were funded by the manufacturers of the statins being studied. Interestingly, another Cochrane review unrelated to this story showed that industry-sponsored studies are more likely to find positive results than non-commercial trials.

Let me review with you some articles that have been published in the last few months about the risks associated with statins.

Oct 25, 2013 the Men's Journal had an article called Statin's Latest Side Effects. In this article they pointed out that in a trial of more than 46,000 adults, statin users had a 27 percent greater risk of developing vision-skewing conditions than non users. According to Dr Daniel Briceland, spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology "The lens epithelial cells are very sensitive to changes in oxidative stress" Since statins interfere with oxidation processes the eye cells might not regenerate properly to clear away cataracts.

According to Dr Paul Thompson, chief of cardiology at Harvard Hospital in Connecticut, "We know that statins inhibit a process that dissolves collagen and other fibrous tissue, so it could be that this interferes with the eye's ability to repair damaged tissue."

According to the Chicago Tribune Oct 30, 2013, when Mevacor also known as lovastatin, the first statin drug, was being developed, animal studies suggested that cataracts might be a side effect. On May 21, 2010 a British study reported in the British Medical Journal online showed that statins increased the risk of cataracts and the risk returned to normal within a year of stopping the statin medication.

A new study reported in JAMA Ophtamology online on Sept 19, 2013 showed that cataracts are more common in statin users than non users.

Diabetes, according to Renal and Urology News, atrovastin had no significant affect on a combined endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction also known as MI and stroke among diabetic patients on hemodialysis. After 11.5 years of follow up in both groups, daily atrovastin or placebo, 90% of the patients had died despite the fact that the patients who were given atrovastin during the trial had an average reduction in LDL cholesterol levels by 42%.

In the New York Times October 22, 2013 Dr Hosam Kamel, the vice chairman of the American Medical Directors Association, a group representing physicians in nursing home practice, said there was scarce scientific evidence supporting the use of statins in 70 to 80 year olds in their care. He said that the results don't conclusively establish the benefits of using statins for seniors and he went on to say there is evidence of harm linked to statin use in seniors including muscle aches, liver toxicity, gastrointestinal distress, and growing evidence of impaired memory, heightened risk of diabetes and increased risk of cancer.

According to Dr Rita Redberg, cardiologist at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center and editor in chief of JAMA the side effects associated with statin use was not reported in studies. According to her summary of the evidence for using statins to prevent heart disease, heart attacks will be prevented in only 1 or 2 out of every 100 healthy people with high cholesterol who take statins for 5 years while 1 person out of those 100 will develop diabetes and older people are much more vulnerable to the side effects of the medications. She also says there is some evidence that low cholesterol is associated with higher mortality at an older age.

Back in 2009 I appeared on KSCO Radio's The Wellness Hour with Bernie Owens. (link is coming soon) Back then on that show I laid out the facts about cholesterol and statin drugs as I saw them using the drug manufacturers own research to back up my opinions.

I pointed out back then that inflammation was a better predictor of cardiovascular events than cholesterol. In fact I stated on that show that cholesterol had NOTHING TO DO WITH HEART DISEASE, that it was actually a warning sign.

I laid out how, when you actually look at a lot of the research on statin drugs and look at the raw numbers, not the conclusions at the beginning and end of the articles but the raw numbers, many times there wasn't any real significant, statistical difference in outcomes of cholesterol lowering from the placebo groups.

I showed that statin drugs actually do 2 things.
- it's true they lower cholesterol but
- they are actually anti-inflammatory as well and it was this property that produced the positive cardiovascular benefits.

I showed that lowering cholesterol numbers actually caused many other problems ranging from issues with muscles because of co Q 10 depletion, low testosterone, low vitamin d, increased risk of cancer, and increase risk of Alzheimer disease.

The point to all of this is that the pharmaceutical companies are ignoring facts about statin drugs that can harm you. They are ignoring facts about cardiovascular disease risk that can be controlled through other methods. They are especially ignoring the facts as they relate to inflammation and that there was never real evidence to support low fat diets as a way to reduce risks.


The ONLY conclusion a reasonable person can come up with is because profits are more important than YOUR health.

In the next few days I will post links to the ABC story on cholesterol as well as the recording of my original appearance on KSCO radio that I mentioned in this article. In the mean time here are a couple links related to this that I did in the past:

"Truth About Cholesterol"

"Are Your Prescriptions Making You Sicker"

Are Your Prescriptions Making You Sicker?

I've been vindicated! 

Back in 2009 I appeared on KSCO Radio's The Wellness Hour with Bernie Owens. Back then on that show I laid out the facts about cholesterol and statin drugs as I saw them using the drug manufacturers own research to back up my opinions.

  • I pointed out back then that inflammation was a better predictor of cardiovascular events than cholesterol. In fact I stated on that show that cholesterol had NOTHING TO DO WITH HEART DISEASE, that it was actually a warning sign.
  • I laid out how, when you actually look at a lot of the research on statin drugs and look at the raw numbers, not the conclusions at the beginning and end of the articles but the raw numbers, many times there wasn't any real significant, statistical difference in outcomes of cholesterol lowering from the placebo groups.
  • I showed that statin drugs actually do 2 things. 1 it;s true they lower cholesterol but 2 they are actually anti-inflammatory as well and it was this property that produced the positive cardiovascular benefits.
  • I showed that lowering cholesterol numbers actually caused many other problems ranging from issues with muscles because of co Q 10 depletion, low testosterone, low vitamin d, increased risk of cancer, and increase risk of Alzheimer disease. So it is really refreshing now to have a well-known cardiologist back up some of what I said back then.

Making It Rain - Busy Work vs Income-Producing Activity

Today's topic is Making It Rain, Busy Work versus Income-Producing Activities

I’m on a crusade – a crusade to create the proper expectations on what it takes to do the business.

I still hear people recruiting with a pitch that the business can be started in four or five hours a week.

Not a chance.

No one builds a network working that kind of schedule. 
Sure you can build a small retailer business with those hours, but you can’t duplicate a large network.

To do the business beginning on a part-time basis, you need to put in at least ten to 15 hours a week. 

Because once you get a runner or two, they will need you to be available for events and calls, working with some long distance lines and helping out on other things that can’t be done in four or five hours a week.

But that isn’t the real issue…

We can go to your company convention and ask for a show of hands of all the people who work at least ten hours a week and 90 percent of the people have both hands in the air and are moving them like they just don’t have a care!

But here’s the problem with that…

Sorry, kids, but spending five hours chatting on Facebook and sending out some tweets is not really building the business.

Checking your back office every five minutes to see what your volume is and if anyone signed up any new team members is not building the business.

Calling all your frontline people and affirming how “fired up” you are doesn’t get it done.

Organizing your stock of vitamin tablets in alphabetical order on your stock shelves do not make your bonus check go up. 

Cleaning off your desk, catching up on your filing, and putting everything in your briefcase in its proper place are all noble activities and you’re sure to get your reward in heaven. 

But that’s not what you get paid on.

Remember — we get paid only on the volume produced by products that get to the end consumer. 


And we produce volume in only two ways:

  1. Getting prospects to presentations where they join the business.
  2. Getting prospects to presentations where they don’t join the business but they decide to become customers.
Those are the only two activities that you get paid on. 
Everything else is a distraction. 

And distractions cost you money.

The difference between people who earn a few hundred or thousand dollars a month and those who create financial freedom for themselves is this: how they spend those ten to 15 hours a week initially. 

This is what separates the amateurs from the professionals.

Amateurs spend lots of time with busywork. 
Professionals dedicate as much of their time as possible to rainmaker activities.

One of the best things you can do to maximize your productivity and income is to plan your week. 

Take 45 minutes over the weekend and schedule the following week. 

Determine exactly when your ten to 15 hours are going to be and what you are going to do during those hours.

Set aside time for sending out invitations, putting prospects in presentations, and doing follow-up. 

These are the rainmaker activities that build volume.

This is not rocket science. 

But such planning probably will do more to grow your business than any other single strategy you can implement.

Pump Up the Volume - It's How You Get Paid

I remember getting a call from a friend inviting me to come over to his house to hear about a gifting program. He said I should bring $100 in cash.

I declined.

A few weeks later he informed me that he had received several thousand dollars from the gifting program and I should jump in.

I declined again.

Six months later, he was singing a different story… It turns out the authorities busted up the ring and he had many family members and friends who lost their money. Of course they blamed him, and he said it was the worst mistake he had ever made.

In money games and pyramids, people always get hurt. In legitimate network marketing opportunities, no one ever has to get hurt. So what is the difference?

In legitimate Network Marketing, we don’t assess training costs or headhunter fees. We get paid only on the volume produced by products or services delivered to the end consumers. That means your bonus check is directly tied to the volume of your organization.

Now, like everything else we’re talking about, you can’t control the volume of your network. But once again, the standard you set in the first circle will directly impact what happens to the rest of them.

You’re able to do this three ways:
  1. The products or services you and your family consume.
  2. The products or services you give away as samples.
  3. The customer base you develop.
Watch this video to look at each of these in more detail.

Setting a Standard of Integrity

In network Marketing we all get approached from time to time by someone from another line looking to switch lines. They weren't happy with their sponsor and wanted to join our team.

While the volume would certainly have been nice, You need to reject it immediately, because it isn't the right thing to do. You don’t want a war with other lines, and you wouldn't appreciate when someone tries to poach someone from your team. And you certainly can’t complain about such action if you sanction it on your own team.

Besides, you will just fall asleep better at night when you know you've operated in integrity throughout the day.

It’s important in your organization to operate by ten core qualities that you should ingrain into the culture at every level. One of the principles included in those core qualities is always doing the right thing. If you do this in your organization, you will see a full range of benefits across your business and your life.

Like everything else we’re discussing, it all begins with you.

When you demonstrate that the business is done with integrity, then that behavior will become the standard throughout the team. This doesn't mean you’ll never have bad people. Sometimes you will. But they will find the culture intolerable and will quickly move on to somewhere else.

I think one of the most attractive elements of our business versus the corporate world is the integrity we practice. In the workday world, there is a rat-eat-rat mentality and people are rewarded for undermining others to make themselves look better. The drama of things like office politics, discrimination, and accounting scandals is wearing very thin on a lot of people in that space.

They look at our world and see a system where success comes from people helping others reach success, where the sponsorship line gets paid for reaching down and mentoring their team, and there is unlimited space at the top levels of success.

That’s pretty intoxicating and it’s attracting a lot of refugees from the traditional workforce. To keep that in effect, you need to be vigilant about the ways your team does business.

And that starts with you…

  • Is your word good?
  • Do you honor copyrighted material or are you making counterfeit copies?
  • Are you abiding by all local laws and paying your taxes?
  • Do you respect other distributors’ guests at open events and make sure they sign up with the person who invited them?
  • Are you paying for the marketing materials and events and is your check good?
  • Do you respect the sanctity of marriage vows, both yours and others?
  • Do you keep your product claims and testimonials to those approved by the company?
  • Are you representing your own income and your company’s earning potential accurately and honestly?

All of these things are part of the bigger picture of how you run the business. When you run it with integrity, you will attract and retain good people, your team will know how to respond in any situation, and you will be operating by the laws of prosperity. You’ll reach success sooner, and your success will withstand temporary challenges to stand the test of time. And more importantly, you’ll feel good about your business and derive a lot more satisfaction from it.

It All Starts with YOU

I recently read a book by Randy Gage called "Making the First Circle Count" that has inspired me to make this next series of blog posts. Everything we do in this business goes back to the first circle – the one that says “You” in it.

Many people demand spillover and see it as their birthright. So if their sponsor hasn't built out a good portion of their structure for them, they’re quick to place the blame on that sponsor for the less-than-successful results they are experiencing.

Others place the blame on their team because they haven’t done enough to make us rich. 

The bonus check you receive every month has your name on it, no one else’s. Once you accept that, you’re ready to create success. And to do that, you must operate in accord with the Law of the First Circle.

Safe is the New Risky

When I was a kid I was taught get good grades, get a job at a big corporation and your are set for life. I got a job for a giant corp, AT&T.

Thought I was set.

Then a judge decided the company was too big and broke it up. After some internal politics I eventually lost my job.

So what do I do?

Ok, then I was told go get a college degree. Find something in healthcare that you will like, after all the baby boomers will be getting sicker and the need for healthcare workers will keep you in business until you retire.

I chose pharmacist.

Along comes corporate greed.

The insurance industry goes after the pharmacies profits instead of going after big pharma's profits. They cut reimbursement so drastically the mom and pop pharmacies can't survive.

Big corporate pharmacies cut back on their ancillary help to save a buck. Force pharmacists to fill more and more prescriptions per hour. Put rules and demands on pharmacists that are impossible for an individual to make. Then they use these rules to eliminate those of us that are older. Those of us whose benefits package is costing too much, after all it is cheaper to pay health, life and disability insurance on younger people. Don't even mention the cost of 3 or 4 weeks vacation per year if you have built up enough time earning them profits.

Next comes for profit colleges deciding they can make a quick buck by cranking out more pharmacists. Now there are 18,000 new grads per year and only 10,000 jobs per year. New grads are $200k in debt and willing to work for 75% of what you where making just to make their student loan payments that they can't get out of even if they can't find a job, thanks to the government.

Then comes the affordable care act and all of its ramifications on the health care industry.

It appears the "safe" way to make a living is not so safe."

Safe is the New Risky

Today I want to share with you a video that I think can be a fantastic tool for your warm market recruiting. This video discusses how the idea of going to school, getting a job at a big corporation, work for 30 years then retire just isn't possible any longer. It's just not what happens any longer. The more years you have invested in the company, the higher your salary gets, the more expensive your benefits package gets because of your age, the bigger the target gets on your back for being replaced.

It also discusses other ways to create income and gives some very compelling reasons why someone should consider network marketing. Watch to this video then tell me what you think.

The Key to Winning

Occasionally I like to share something I read. Today I want to share with you a message from Denis Waitley. I've been reading and listening to Dr Waitley s thoughts for decades starting with a series of audio cassettes called The Psychology of Winning. I hope you enjoy his post and find value in his words.

The Key to Winning by Denis Waitley

People often ask me, what is the most critical attribute of a winner in life? Without hesitation, I answer that believing you deserve to win is the key. If you believe in your dreams when they're all you have to hang on to, you begin to try. If you feel you have potential or talent, you'll invest in it. If you believe you're worth the effort, you'll put in the time and energy. If you think you can, you'll learn how.

Healthy self-esteem is perhaps the most important and basic quality of a winning human being. You want to be able to say: "I like myself. Given my parents and my background, I'm glad I'm me. I realize I may not be the best-looking in the group, but I always look and do my best in every group. I'd rather be me than anyone else in the world." This is the self-talk of a winner. Winners have developed a strong sense of self-worth, regardless of their status. They weren't necessarily born with these good feelings, but they've learned to like themselves through practice.

The most successful companies in the world know that valued employees are their most precious resource. Valuable employees pass their value on to customers. The result? Excellence and quality. They are the most powerful competitors in the world marketplace. Instead of comparing ourselves to others, we should view ourselves in terms of our own abilities, interests and goals. We can begin by making a conscious effort to upgrade our lifestyle, education and personal development. You always project on the outside how you feel on the inside.

Core values radiate like rings, as when a pebble is thrown in a pond. The self-centered constantly seek approval from and power over others. They try to impress them with their worth rather than express concern for others' well-being. And their outward appearances usually involve ways to hide their real thoughts and intentions.

The value-centered give of themselves freely and graciously, constantly seeking to empower others. Open and modest, they have no need for conceit, the opposite of core value. Feeling good about who they are, and not needing to talk about their victories or line their walls with celebrity photos, people with core values spend much of their time "paying value," as I call it, to others. When praised, they share the spotlight. When they make mistakes, they view them as learning experiences and accept responsibility.

Do You Own a Job or Does It Own You?

Years ago I read a book by Robert Kiyosaki called Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

It changed my life.

In the book Robert introduced me to the concept of the cash flow quadrant and moving myself from the E and S, Employee and self-employed side over to the B and I, business owner and investor side. For the first time in my life I really understood having other people generate multiple streams of income for me. I understood that I can continue to be and E or S, work 40 hours per day and get paid for 40 hours. If I wanted to make more money I had to get another, higher paying job or work more hours. Those where the only options. (learn about the Cash Flow Quadrant here: )

But by moving to the B and I side I could compound my effort. I could have several people all working 40 hours for me and I would benefit from many more hours of work during that same 40 hour period. As J P Getty once said he would rather get paid for 1% of the efforts of 100 people than 100% of the efforts of his own work. These concepts really resonated with me.

I began looking around at different ways to get paid for the efforts of those 100 people. I knew that franchises could do it for me because they would offer me a proven system, a proven product, and mentoring and training but I didn’t have thousands of dollars laying around for the initial investment.

Then I finally found it. I actually found a way to get paid 5% on the efforts of 100, 1000, 10,000 or more people. I found a business with low startup costs, no inventory, no employees to manage, no complicated paper work and government regulations to worry about. A business with many mentors ready to help that are just a phone call away. And a business with plenty of training materials to help me get off to a good start.
Before I tell you about the business I want to share 2 things with you. First I have included a blog that Robert Kiyosaki recently posted on this same subject. After his post I will include a link to a website that will give you an insight into the business that I found. I ask that you read this blog post and then go oto that website, complete the contact form and then watch a short video by another good friend of mine. After you do both I will contact you to set up a time to talk about what I have found and how it can help you as well.

Here is Robert’s post:

Do You Own a Job or Do You Own a Business? Find Out the Difference
3 Ways to Become a Successful Business Owner
Posted on: Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Written by: Robert Kiyosaki
The importance of business systems and how to own them.

Do you want to own your own business? Often, when people are trained to be employees or self-employed, E's and S's on the left side of the CASHFLOW Quadrant, they find it hard to transition to the right side of the quadrant, to become a Business Owner (B) and Investor (I).

But if you want to be truly wealthy and financially free, it's imperative that you move to the right side of the CASHFLOW Quadrant. The best way to do this is to move from an E or and S to a B. By building a business, you learn a business sense and how to build great systems. And owning a successful business is really owning a successful system and leveraging others to work in that system. That's the fundamental difference between and E or S and a B.

When you start a business, you also learn what makes a business successful—and what makes it unhealthy. These are key things you'll need to know to be a great investor. Additionally, starting a successful business will give you the cash flow and free time you need to invest well and weather the ups and downs of the market.

When it comes to becoming a successful business owner, there are three ways you can thrive in the B quadrant.

1. Find a mentor

My rich dad was my mentor. A mentor is someone who has already done what you want to do and is successful at doing it. My rich dad taught me about systems and how to be a leader of people, not a manager of people. Managers often see their subordinates as inferiors. Leaders must direct people who are often smarter than they are.

A traditional way to do this is to get your MBA from a prestigious school and then get a fast-track job that takes you up the corporate ladder. An MBA will teach you about the basics of accounting and how the financial numbers relate to your systems, but having an MBA doesn't mean you're competent to run a business. You'll need to spend 10 to 15 years in a company to learn all the different aspects of business. Then, you should plan on leaving to start your own company. Working for a successful major corporation is like being paid by your mentor.

Even with a mentor and years of experience, building a business from scratch is labor-intensive. Creating your own system requires a lot of trial and error, up-front legal costs, and paperwork. All of this occurs while you're trying to develop and lead your people.

2. Buy a franchise

If you don't want to take the time to build your own business systems, you can buy a franchise. When you buy a franchise, you're buying into a proven operating system. The advantage of buying a franchise is that you can take the time you'd spend building your systems to focus on developing your team. And because banks like to make loans to businesses with good, proven systems, they'll often give a loan to a franchise but not to a start-up.

A word of caution: Don't buy a franchise if you want to do things your own way. You must be ready to do everything the way the franchisors tell you. You don't call the shots, but you do own the system. If you want to do your own thing, do it after you've mastered both building your own system and leading people.

3. Get involved in network marketing

Network marketing often gets a bad rap. Because it's a newer form of business system, many people look at it suspiciously and think of it as a scam. Initially, I felt this way too. But after dropping my prejudices and doing some research, I found many people who were sincerely and diligently building successful network-marketing businesses that made a positive impact on their financial futures and others'.

For a reasonable entry fee (often around a few hundred bucks), you can buy into an existing system and immediately begin building a business. And because of technology, this can be done almost entirely online and automated. Paperwork, order processing, distribution, accounting, and follow-up are almost entirely managed by the network-marketing software. This allows you to focus on building your business instead of worrying about the normal start-up headaches of a small business.

Start today

Today, primarily due to changes in technology, the risk in becoming a successful business owner is greatly reduced, and the opportunity to build your own or leverage an existing business system is available to virtually everyone. If you want to start your own business, there's really no excuse not to start today.

Franchises and network marketing solutions took away the hard part of developing your own systems. You acquire the rights to a proven system, and then your only job is to develop your people.

One practical thing you can do today is start learning about business and systems from a mentor and a coach. I had a great mentor and coach when I was building my business, and you need one too.

Click this link then complete the contact information at the bottom of the page to get access to the video that I want you to see then I will contact you to talk about what you thought.

AMA Interfering with Pharmacy Practice

The AMA (American Medical Association) is getting bold. They don't want Pharmacists questioning what they are doing when they write a prescription that the pharmacist thinks may be inappropriate or even dangerous. Read their official statement after this post.

The medical system is imploding and it's time to start taking your health in your own hands. I thank God every day that he introduced me to this alternative wellness business and I'll gladly share it, I'm always looking to expand.

Here is the post from the AMA:

Is AMA Interfering with Pharmacy Practice and Patient Outcomes?

In June of this year, 2013, the American Medical Association made an official statement as follows: "That our American Medical Association (AMA) deem inappropriate inquiries from pharmacies to verify the medical rationale behind prescriptions, diagnoses and treatment plans to be an interference with the practice of medicine and unwarranted."

Daily Creed

Any of you that know me or have been following me through one of my online blogs, know that I really put allot of emphasis on self improvement and self development. I utilize a wide variety of resources to get the positive information into my daily routine. Admittedly, it has been very difficult to embrace a daily routine of self development. Every day life tends to find ways to knock me off course. Once I realize I am going in the wrong direction I step back and realign myself and then move forward again.

In addition to the library of books, over the years I have collect a huge library of motivational, educational, and uplifting audios. I collect them everywhere but especially from the internet. My collection includes lectures from the greats like Jim Rohn, Zig Zigglar, Brian Tracy, John Fogg. I have people in religious circles like Joyce Myers, Joel Osteen, Bishop Fulton Sheen. I have even taken some old audio cassettes that I couldn't fine digital versions of and manually converted them into digital format.  My library includes audio books and radio interviews that I have recorded. I have even gone as far as taken the audio track from the movie The Secret and turned it into an MP3 file so I can listen to it over and over.

I have developed many different habits to maximize, that is, to make most of the amount of time I have. For example, it takes me about an hour to cut the grass. I always make sure I have my iPod with me while I cut the grass. I pick one of the many audios in my library that comes closest to filling that time slot and listen to it while cutting grass. I do the same when commuting in the car, sitting in the doctors office, cleaning out the garage, working on the landscaping, whatever the chore. If I can't be engaged in some sort of business generating activity then I try whenever possible to be listening to self development, uplifting information to feed my brain. 

Yesterday I did the same thing. I jumped on a conference call and listened with my earphones while I was doing some other work. I listened to Barb Pitcock on her Saturday morning call. I found it so inspirational that I am sharing the link here with you. But I also downloaded the call and added it to my MP3 device so I can listen again and again from anywhere I please. 

I encourage you to develop the same habits. Over time you will be amazed at the change it can make on your outlook for yourself, your family, and your career.

You've Enrolled a New Distributor, Now What?

You've enrolled a new distributor, now what do you do?

Many years ago I joined my first network marketing company. I really enjoyed all the products they had and as a pharmacist I was willing to put my reputation on the line but I had no idea what to do. I was getting no where quick and my up-line sponsors were of no help either. They were very excited to have a pharmacist on board and where quick to use me for credibility in their own pursuits but they did not provide any real training whatsoever so I quit.

I knew that network marketing was a good way to generate additional income for me and my family I just didn't know how to do it. I spent the next 2 years looking at dozens of companies and even joining a few. This time however I was looking at training and marketing systems before I would even consider a company.

The only problem I had is I could not find a single company who's products I felt comfortable with putting my pharmacist reputation behind. So I began looking at companies outside of the wellness arena.

Long story short, after all this exploration I ended up coming back to the original company. I joinded a new team that was willing to help and I vowed that I would never be the sponsor that collected the check and ran. I took all of that information that I had leared from all of these other companies and compiled it into a training website, .

I realize that all that information is overwhelming. When a new distributor goes there they can quickly get frustrated and maybe even get lost so I knew I needed to give them a roadmap to follow as they prepare to get there business off to a fast start. So I created a series of emails that I send out to my new team members that guides them through a fast start traing process over the first 5 days they are in the business.

Since one of the tools I use for my business is an auto-responder system, I just change their status when they join from a prospect to a distributor and the auto responder does the work for me. I realize that not everyone can subscribe to an auto-responder system when they are just starting out so I thought I would share with you the 5 emails that I send out so you can customize them for yourself and manually send them out if you like.

I hope this information is helpful. Feel free to share it as well as my training site with your friends.
