Yes, I know it’s been way too long for me to just jump on here and write way after almost two years of nothing. I find Social Media so much quicker to get my updates onto the web but a blog is also a home base for entrepreneurs so I have made it a priority to get back to writing about my goals, progress and activities.
I admit that I was surprised at the amount of visitor statistics in the WordPress back office tools. Sp-aa-mers found me of course but thankfully I knew to hold comments for approval when I set this blog up while learning the plug-in ropes thanks to some video advice that I followed because I knew, and still don’t know, much about this complex tool which I’m supposed to teach colleagues after I master it, lol, since I am one of the few local experts on web marketing.
Personally, I also had a very challenging period of time where I was feeling very disenfranchised with doing my own thing. My partners that worked closely with me found other priorities and I felt very alone. One of my family member’s also had a health challenge and keeping up my spirits was draining and also caused me to gain weight and break out too. Life always gets in the way, as the saying goes. In Network Marketing it takes a team to build the business and I questioned my achievements, efforts, identity and results which shut me down for a while since my team isn’t mature enough yet to run on it’s own.
With as much knowledge and skill that I have cultivated over the years, it still got under my skin, I didn’t feel like a Leader or Guru for anything. To fuel that fire, I felt that key marketing tools and updated promotional tools were missing, there were minor oversights that just turned into a huge waterfall working against me. Well, at least that’s how I felt and I’m a moody Cancerian and we’re all about the ‘feels’ so that doesn’t help.
As Spring weather finally arrives here in the New York area, I’ve been having leads come back around and old customers have ordered again with out any prompting. It’s really nice to see random action when you are questioning yourself. If you’ve never been in NM then you won’t get why people hang on but when you love the stuff you use and sell, have colleagues with good work ethics, and always keep growing with every training or development within the company, it reminds you why this is the one you chose to begin with. And although I came on board when MA was more like an MLM, seeing it evolve into a mega internet marketing model, still with a comp plan, has also been a big magnet for me and like our CEO says it’s in our DNA if it’s meant to be.
So yes, I’m a hopeless romantic and optimist but I’m also a helper, a friend, a mentor, and a creative type so I need something to guide me in business which MA does for me as an entrepreneur. I see the bigger picture of the Shopping Annuity and I like that it’s still being painted. I believe that we all have the ability to edit our picture, no matter which avenue we take to get there and my new goals are on the palette.
Who else has a renaissance happening in their lives? Or is it just me?
