I don't have anyone to talk to!

Everyone tells their kids, "Don't talk to strangers."  For kids, that's important - but not if you're going to do this business.  That's because talking to people is really what it's all about.  Seriously, it's not much more than that.  Whether it's coffee, tea or hot chocolate, there's an Organo Gold product that you could talk with someone about - at least briefly.

That's the truth. You know it and I know it.  If you want to start a business like this and go for your dreams, you are simply going to HAVE to interact with people - especially strangers. 

But nonetheless, people still ask me, "How do I find people to talk to?"

Did you get gas for your car, today?  There were people there.

Did you go to a restaurant?  There were people there.

Did you go to the post office?  There were people there.

Did you go to the store?  There were people there.

Did you see your neighbor?  Those are people, too.

Did the UPS guy come to your house?  He's a person.

I'm betting that you saw a LOT of people, today. You found them. Now ask them if they or anyone they know drink coffee or tea, at least occasionally.

To simplify it even further, approach them and say, "I'm expanding my coffee business in the area. Would you mind trying a free coffee sample and just giving me your opinion?"

What is Organo Gold all about?

Talking to people; that's about it, really.  In other words, it's talking to people for a living.  We call this 'Network Marketing'... but there's a problem.  The problem is that is requires dedication, discipline and force of habit - traits that lie outside one's 'comfort zone'.

You see, Network Marketing is a business; it's not a hobby, a game, a scheme, a 'deal' or something in which to dabble. People who treat it lightly don't succeed.  However, those who treat it as a new career, a profession and a business have a reasonable opportunity to make it pay off very well.

Professionals who treat it as a Wealth Building Art to be “mastered” eventually can earn a yacht-load of money. Most people invite a few people to look at what they're involved with and then quit. Those who master it invite a few people every day for a year or two and (sometime in that “practice”) they hone the art of listening more than talking, interpreting rejection in a learning way and they learn how to verbally craft their offer in such a way that someone actually WANTS to hear more.

Could you do something like that?  Of course you can.  Organo Gold makes it easy for you.

Trafficwave and Organo Gold

There is an old saying in sales: "The Fortune Is In The Followup".  That's true, actually.  If you're going to join my Organo Gold team and develop your business, you'll need to follow up with those who you talk to, share samples with and so on.  That's only natural.

If you use the Internet as part of your business plan (which I obviously do), you'll need an auto-responder for the same reason.  It's the perfect tool for following up with someone who might be interested in Organo Gold.  What's an auto-responder?  It's an email marketing tool that lets you communicate with large numbers of people who have agreed to receive your messages.  That's one important use for it.  It's other function is to send a series of emails on autopilot.  In other words, it works while you're asleep.

The one I choose is Trafficwave, because it does everything I need for one very inexpensive price.  It also happens to have the best affiliate program of its kind, but that's another matter.

The way I use it is simple.  On the right side of this page is a little two line form that anyone can fill out if they're interested in receiving samples of tea or coffee in the mail.  Once they do, they will receive an email from me, along with a few follow-up emails over time.  It happens automatically.  That's why it's called an auto-responder system.

I just never know when the time is going to be "right" for someone to get started with my team. The auto-responder system works tirelessly to keep my message in front of potential business partners, dripping the information on them over and over again until they are ready.  It can work for you too, if you learn to use it correctly.

Organo Gold is a business... not a hobby

If you've been following my blog posts here (or if you haven't), all I can say is that the Organo Gold business opportunity is just that... an opportunity to start and run a business.  It's a real business, with all of the labor and responsibility that goes with any business.

When I'm explaining to someone how to get set up and established with it, the feedback that I sometimes get involves thinking that the auto-ship is 'an obligation to get a check'.  My response to that is, "Change your thinking!"  Auto-ship is simply how you automatically have the coffee you need to build a million-dollar business!

I've already given away SEVERAL BOXES of coffee & tea this month!  I can do this because I always have product on hand when I need it.  Think about it.  If you join my team this month and start your business, would you have enough coffee to get a leader started out right - if you happened to meet one the following month?  Or would you have them sitting around waiting because you couldn't help them?

IF you are going to do this business..

You must think like a business person.
You must act like a business person.
You must lead by example.
You must build a strong business.

It's up to you.  Join the team, do the work and let's get this done!

Organo Gold and Dunkin Donuts

What do the two have in common?  The answer is:  More than you think.

Coffee is BIG business, folks.  Organo Gold coffees and teas are different because they are infused with the tasteless & odorless 'king of herbs', Ganoderma.  The health benefits of Ganoderma are legendary.  But what's that got to do with Dunkin Donuts?  The answer is:  Coffee and healthy products are both BIG business.

Dunkin Donuts has been gradually re-making its image since 2006, when the chain unveiled its ‘America Runs on Dunkin’ slogan, a reference not to its namesake baked goods but its coffee: a cheaper, down-home alternative to pricey, hoity-toity Starbucks.  Seven years later, as the company looks to expand from its east coast roots to the west, Dunkin is no longer beating around the proverbial bush. With coffee and other drinks accounting for 58% of US franchisee-reported sales in 2012, the outfit’s CFO has admitted that the future is not in Powdered Sugar or Boston Kreme. “We are a beverage company,” Paul Carbone told investors and analysts this week, stirring nostalgia by referring to Dunkin Donuts’ beloved mascot of the 1980s and 1990s: “Fred the Baker is not coming back.”

Speaking at investment bank Jefferies’ annual consumer conference, Carbone called Dunkin Donuts’ beverage business the “holy grail” for profitability, with the highest margins of all its sales categories. As Dunkin prepares to head “west of the Mississippi”, as Carbone put it, the company is rolling out a national media campaign focused on its drinks rather than any of its food offerings. Dunkin’s eye is on the prize: California, where the Boston-based chain has no presence to date, but where top competitor Starbucks operates well over 2,000 stores — more than triple the number in the Seattle coffee giant’s second most saturated state, Texas. Carbone said the company has been targeting California with its coffee ads since 2010, despite having no plans to open up shop there until 2015. “By the time we’re in California, they’ll have seen five years of national media focused on beverages,” he said of the plan.

Today, Dunkin Donuts operates around 7,400 US stores, with its core business in New England, New York and other eastern markets including Pennsylvania and Florida. The chain broke ground in Las Vegas in 2005, marking its first big westward move. The aim, said Carbone, is to have 15,000 outlets up and running in the next few years, with California stores accounting for a significant chunk of this new real estate. While Dunkin will continue pushing its coffee menu to Californians, the chain seems to be aiming squarely at health-conscious Golden State residents with an unexpected announcement this week. It’ll start selling gluten-free muffins and donuts later this year, becoming the first major fast food outlet to jump on the anti-wheat bandwagon. Flour-loving Fred the Baker would be out of business.


So back to Organo Gold...

Ask yourself this question:  Will Dunkin Donuts EVER send you a check for drinking and sharing their coffee with others?  Well... will they?

What makes YOU special?

Something does, I guarantee it.  And whatever that something is, you can use it to get whatever you want out of life.  Consider this...

Have you ever seen photographs of individual grains of sand blown up over 250 times their actual size? Some grains look like red, glossy stones, others look like icicles; some resemble speckled yellow and brown eggs, and still others seem shaped like corncobs, snowflakes, and precious gems. Some grains are square; some, spherical; and some, flat. No two grains are the same.  In fact, you’d never know you were even looking at grains of sand if no one told you.

So the next time your toes are gripping the warm sand, think about each and every tiny grain, unique in shape, depth, color, and texture. God created each and every one of this infinite variety of grains.
Since God shows off His creative abilities in tiny bits of sand, think about what He has done - and can do - with us, the crown of His creation. Each one of us is unique in appearance, personality, gifts, and experiences; each of us is wired with feelings, preferences, responses and tastes that are ours alone.  ~From Devotions For The Beach, by Sarah Young


There's something special about you - something different, and something unique.  Like the amazing differences in individual grains of sand, you have qualities that others can't see.  Don't wait.  Develop them and let them shine for the world to SEE.

Worried about your future?

I'm not.  Oh, I 'could' be if I wanted to.  I just don't want to.  It's not for me, because today is yesterday's future and I'm not worried today.  Abraham Lincoln said that, "Most people are about as happy as they makes their minds up to be."  I'd agree with that, because you're happiest when you're in control of your life - and it begins by controlling your thoughts.

The other day at at Home Depot, an employee was helping me load an item into our van and noticed the boxes of coffee inside (rule #1, always have coffee and tea with you!).  Of course, I asked him if he drinks coffee and tea and how much he enjoys working at Home Depot.  Needless to say, we chatted for a little bit and I gave him some samples to try, along with some information.

You see, you have to set the expectation for the future by taking action today.  Have a positive mental attitude and be ready when opportunity comes your way - because you bring about what you think about.

Did you know that statistically the average American spends 3.5 hours a day worrying? 

Rather than giving your energy over to worry and doubt, switch your energy to belief. Could you imagine what we would be capable of accomplishing if the statistic became: The average American spends 3.5 hours a day believing and taking action? WOW!  One way that you can start transferring that energy away from worry and doubt is to set goals. Yes, we hear this a lot, but there’s a reason that you do.  Only you have control over what you wear, what you eat, what you read, etc... and it's you who are in control of your goals.  Next, realize that you can achieve them.

Believe it or not, many who set goals see it as a nice, pretty dream - like an art piece hanging on a wall that they occasionally glance at and think, "Wow, I wish I could paint something like that."  It's because they don’t believe that they can actually achieve what they envision for themselves.

Maybe you’ve set goals in the past and they still haven’t come to fruition.  That can happen, but you have to ask yourself what was in your control that attributed to the goal not being accomplished? Are you a procrastinator?  Did you lack a plan?  Did you need specialized knowledge that you didn't seek out?  Worst of all, did you let someone else talk you out of your dreams?

You need to figure that out.  You can always start over, you know. It’s up to you what you do or don’t do, this time around. Listen to your critics too, by the way. We all have them. Sometimes what they say can be valid and useful.  Don't take it personally, especially if they're not paying your bills. Most times, though, critics are just that - critics.  What they have to say can destroy your dreams if you listen to them, so filter it carefully.  As a general rule, don't listen to anyone who hasn't accomplished what you desire to do.  And most important of all... STOP worrying.
