From The Book The Game of Networking ‼

Building Credibility Through Telling Your Story

Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell. – Seth GodinEven though we are our own biggest fan inside our head, we don’t like to brag about ourselves to others. Telling people who you are or what you have done isn’t bragging.

The biggest key is how you tell them. If I say, “I was considered by far the best recruiter in a multi-billion-dollar company and know more than anyone else,” that could come off wrong. Instead why not say, “I was the top recruiter for a billion-dollar company.

I did so because I had incredible mentors, that I will forever be grateful for, I outworked everyone, and I was very coachable.” Tell your story in a confident, but not cocky, way.Why is this important? People want to follow a leader. It gives them confidence. Sometimes they don’t yet have the confidence in themselves and want to find someone they can follow who has confidence and inspires others to have more.

You may ask yourself, “What if I haven’t had any success yet?” There are multiple ways to overcome this.

1. You should be able to sell another leader’s success in your organization. Leverage their success.2. I would bet you have been successful in something in your life. Leverage that. When I started network marketing, I leveraged my tennis success and my leader’s success.I told everyone how committed and determined I was in tennis and that I would apply that same commitment and discipline to network marketing. I was going to do whatever it takes!3. If you feel you have no leadership help, nor any success in your life to leverage, then sell your goals.At the beginning of my network marketing experience, I told people, “I am grateful I have a job, but I want more. I am sick and tired of having no time freedom. I want to travel the world. I want to spend more time with my family and friends.I want to do bigger and better things, so I am going to do whatever it takes to make XX amount of money! I want to reach that goal within two years. It may take me five years or longer, but I am going to do whatever it takes.”Do you hear the confidence I had in what I said? I was not cocky, and I put no one down. Instead, I was 100 percent certain that I was going to make my goals happen, and that’s what I was able to show to others. Don’t tell people what you do for a living.Tell them the problems you solve. No one cares about what you do. They care about what you can do.


Top 7 Specialties among the POOR &the RICH

unnamed (2)

In this article, my aim is to present you with brutal and practical facts that differentiate the poor from the rich in our societies today.

Top 7 Specialties among the POOR &the RICH

#1 The poor watch TV while the rich read

The poor spend more time glued to their television set and in most cases, they devote their time watching programs that will add no value to their lives.

For the rich, it is a different ball game altogether. They spend time reading and learning. They make research to better and development themselves and even when they must watch television they spend little time doing that or they watch programs that add value to them

#2 They poor get paid timely and rich get paid based on results

You see the poor depending on monthly and timely income. They wait until the end of a stipulated time before they earn.

For the rich, the income or payment is based on the achievements they are able to record in a given time.

A typical example is a director of a company that shares profit at the end of a financial year or a successful business transaction while the average workers wait for 30 days to get their wages.

#3 The poor blame and rich takes responsibilities

A poor man is very quick to ascribing blame to a particular thing or event. They are quick at blaming others for their misfortunes rather than take responsibilities of their situation.

They blame their “village people” for any negative events in their life.

On the other hand, the rich accept responsibilities for their actions, learn from their mistakes and forge ahead.

#4 The poor save while the rich invest

The poor take their monies to the banks who then give same to the rich to invest.

Because the poor are afraid of risk and losses associated with business investments they prefer to keep their funds in the banks.

But the rich never hesitate to increase their money through investment and risk-taking.

#5 The poor know it all while the rich continuously learn

A typical poor man seems to have it all figured out and yet he is still in a sorry situation.

This makes it difficult for them to learn from those who are more knowledgeable than they are. A typical poor man is a jack of all trade.

The rich employ the services of professionals to handles areas that they have no knowledge about, they are willing to learn and improve themselves.

#6 The poor believe that money is the root of all evil while the rich believe poverty is the root of all evil

A poor man has the impression that money is the root of all evil whole the rich think otherwise.

Unfortunately, the religious poor among us in the society believes that money can hinder you from serving your good or remaining faithful to your religion.

While the rich believe that life is made easy and comfortable when you are comfortably rich.

#7 Poor have lottery mentality rich have an action mentality

These days, the poor prefer to sit down and continue to hope that someday he will win a lottery that will change his life and that of his family members.

They resort to having the lottery mentality, they take no actions to alleviate their condition.

While the rich believe that he has to work hard to change his conditions for the better. The rich make a conscious effort for the betterment of his life, the rich is action minded, they work for every penny.

What is the most important skill you need?

If you want to be successful, you’ll need many specialized business skills, but probably the most important one will surprise you: it’s the capacity to READ! Yes, READ!

You must develop the capacity to read, and to read FAST, and by this I don’t mean basic literacy. This is why I talk of “capacity.” If you’re on this platform, you’re someone who has more than basic literacy skills. You are the next generation of leaders.

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression: “(Great) leaders are readers.”

You must have the capacity to read a lot, if you want to be successful. All the greatest leaders I’ve ever met, from any walk of life, had this in common: they liked to read books, journals, and articles.

On one of my travels, I met someone who asked me a simple question:

“Where do you live?”

“I have a house in London and one in Johannesburg, but I spend most of my time in airports.”

“Where are your books?” she asked.

“In Johannesburg.”

“Ah, that is where you live, because books are your most prized possession.”

You must BUY and own books. It must be a constant investment. You’re not a reader if you prefer only to borrow books. It means you’re not committed. If you have children, take them to bookshops. Buy or build them bookshelves. Encourage them to own and treasure books. Take them to libraries, galleries and museums… they’re generally free!

__For the African continent to grow and prosper, we must build a greater culture of reading in our young generations! There’s not a moment to waste.

The pastor of a great church asked a young man, “Where is your bible?”

“I can’t afford one, sir” the young man replied.

“Then sell your shoes!” the pastor replied.

This is the attitude you must build towards the ownership of all other books, too: “If you think books are too expensive then you have not yet realized their value to you, and your family.”

Reading is by far and away the thing I do most in my day:

You all know by now that I start my day by reading the bible for at least an hour. I read it cover to cover at least once a year.

Before I go to work or start my day, I delve through at least 5 newspapers that I subscribe to.

Then I read reports, mostly about what’s going on in our various businesses. I also read the latest developments in our industries.

I read emails (I don’t allow an email to go unanswered for more than 24 hours). Generally, I read every email that gets into my inbox. This is why I don’t like all sorts of emails to clutter my box. I manage emails very strictly because if I don’t, I’ll lose control of my agenda.

# Throughout the day, I’m reading reports and responding to them. I can read very fast.

I hate rituals, but if you must have a ritual, this is it: Read every day to understand, reflect upon and follow what’s going on around you that affects you. Remember what I’ve said before: things happening far across the world can seriously affect you, too!

You can train yourself to expand your reading capacity quickly and easily:

1. Buy and read books.

2. Buy and read books.

Did I repeat myself?

Buy and read books!

In closing, the other day I went to see a play in New York about Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers. It was a remarkable musical production and worth all the rave reviews it’s getting. I only had one problem: it was a musical performed in “rap” by a mostly young African-American cast; for a long time, I didn’t understand a thing they were saying! But I could still follow the story very well, because I’d read the book on which it was based more than 10 years earlier. If I must see a movie, I need to read the book as well.

Someone who has a smartphone or tablet is reading (quantitatively) more than 100x what their peers read 20 years ago. Nevertheless, the key to reading capacity requires an interest in reading books, even those in electronic format.

Be smart, be wise; buy and read books. If you’re planning to get to the top, one book a week should be your minimum target.

Leadership Is Not Rocket Science

Today, I want to share some simple and practical tips about how to be a better Business leader. None of these things are rocket science, but they can have a big, positive impact in your network marketing business.

# 1 Give Recognition ALL THE TIME

Recognize your team members whenever possible, even for the smallest of things. People want to feel important and appreciated. Babies cry for it and adults die for it: RECOGNITION. Whenever YOU are recognized for something, be sure to give credit to the people on your team. Utilize praise, awards, certificates, handwritten notes, gifts, contests and anything else you can think of to recognize people.

# 2 Lead from the Front

Always lead from the front. Do the things you want your team members to do. Become a top recruiter and retailer. Stay consistent and persistent. Be rock solid! Your team is always watching you!

# 3 Be a Servant Leader

Focus on helping others get what they want. Take your eyes off yourself and focus on helping and serving others. The more people you serve, the more money you will make! Realize that your team does not work for you. If anything, you work for them!

# 4 Create Team Spirit

People want to belong to something bigger than themselves. It’s basic human nature. Create a strong team culture that encourages people to grow and step out of their comfort zone. Have a team name. Make EVERYONE on your team feel important and special whenever you can!

# 5 Love People

Never pressure people to do more with the business than they want to. Love on everyone and meet people where they are at AND work with the willing. Do not “push” people out of the business because you pressure them to do things they aren’t ready to do yet. Every person on your team has a role. Every person on your team is important.

# 6 Speak Belief Into Others

You must realize that MOST people have confidence and worthiness issues. As a leader, your job is to speak belief into others. Encourage others. Let them know they are worthy and deserving of success. Give them credit for even the smallest of things. Help others work on their personal development, so they can reach their potential.

# 7 Take 100% Responsibility

You are your own CEO. Never blame your team for anything. You must accept 100% responsibility for your success, or failure, in the industry. Man up or woman up at all times. Remember, there are no successful victims.

Reference to Chuck Holmes





What separates successful people from others is not how lucky they were but how many times they have been unlucky, yet they keep going when others give up. Keep working hard, keep making mistakes, keep learning. And never quit.


Stop looking for people who are down and out and NEED the business instead focus on finding people who WANT to change their lives for the better.

Ultimately, you are looking for someone who is sick and tired of being sick and tired and will do just about anything to improve their life. Just because someone SHOULD improve their life, or should want to, doesn’t mean that they actually do want to improve their life. **

Stop looking to sponsor unemployed people, broke people and negative people. These people are good people, but they are not good prospects for a business opportunity. You want someone with some disposable income.

You want someone with influence. You want someone with hustle. You want individuals who are coachable. You want individuals who are HUNGRY to improve the quality of their lives. Focus on finding that person perhaps those people and watch your BUSINESS GROW.

More earnings!

Reference Mr I.K



The value of life comes from within. A person value is not determined by material possession,titles or social status.The value of your life cannot be measured by any amount of money.

know the value of your life,examine your heart and actions. Invest in yourself with things that cannot be taken away from you.Do not allow the world to add a price tag to your life because you are invaluable worth.

Achievement is not for everybody. It is for those who are focused, optimistic, positive, fearless and who never quits – who has a burning desire to fulfill life’s purpose – destiny.

You must breakaway from your comfort zone to excel. 

Take up one ambitious project/business and start making effort to succeed in that area. The shortcut to success is by having a mentor/coach in the area you want to venture into. 





Until you become wealthy, until your dreams come true, until you travel round the world, until your voice is heard, until your impact is felt and your name re-echos.

👉 ladies and gentlemen don’t stop trying out things.
👉 Keep trying
👉 Keep pushing
👉 The top is where you belong

👉🏼Everyday is an opportunity to let go the past and forge ahead with new ideas and dreams irrespective of your challenges…

Keep moving…Never quit

Thank you
