Exciting news!!

As many of you know, I have a passion for meditation. When I joined the SFM/DEA community, I found that there were many like-minded people who meditate, and even more who wanted to learn to meditate. One of the huge benefits of being a member of the SFM/DEA, is that we’re given the coaching and assistance with bringing our passions forward. What do we really want to do? How do we want to contribute to our world? What kind of an impact do we truly want to have with our brothers and sisters around the globe? The answers to these questions and more become evident with the journey in the SFM/DEA. Another amazing member and I have a dream about the possibility of global meditation and world peace. Do you know that studies have shown that meditation in very large groups can lower the crime rate in that area by about 15%?  Do you know about the benefits of lowering of suicide rates and accidents during times of meditation? Just think what might be accomplished with a global meditation! I’m excited to announce that I just hosted our first live meditation webinar for the SFM community!! It is a very exciting first step! After we’ve done a few SFM/DEA live meditations, we will then invite the public… which will include a personal invitation to you. Until then, I have placed a video meditation on YouTube which is exactly the same as we used Monday, so I could share the meditation with you. The meditation is less than 15 minutes long and can be used daily or at any time you feel the need to center yourself. This meditation includes music infused with energy to help you meditate more easily, and a yantra (symbol to loosely...

3 Reasons Small Business Owners Should Market Through Social Media

“Social Media” has been around since the ’90s and we’ve come a long way since MySpace, haha. There are over 3 billion internet users in the world with 280 million in the U.S. alone! It’s no wonder that the social media world is so huge. There are almost 900 million daily Facebook users, with many people logging in in the wee hours before they’re even out of bed! As an online marketer, it is so important to understand the hype social media has created. It is vital and an absolute necessity that we engage! It is by far one of the world’s most important resources to promote your brand. We have 3 powerful reasons to get on board and establish your business presence using social media. 1. Believe it or not, your target audience is on social media It is amazing that small business owners continue to believe that their audience isn’t on social media. They still think it is used only by teens and college students!  74 percent of adults online use social media. Facebook leads the way, with 71 percent of adults using a Facebook profile. Pinterest and LinkedIn are the next most used social media channels by online adults, with 28 percent of the population on each of these sites. As an online marketer, it cannot be overstated how important social media marketing is. 2. Our audiences are probably using more than one social media site In a 2014, the company Pew Research found that 52 percent of online adults use more than 1 social media site. This is a 10 percent increase from 2013. In the end, creating only a company Facebook page is probably not enough to reach your audience. 3. Your audience wants to build a relationship...

The #1 Trait All Successful People Possess

Successful entrepreneurs possess a different mindset than that of an employee. The employee mindset is that you work for 40 hours for someone who hires you, then you get paid for the 40 hours you worked. Simple, right? Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, may forego the immediate satisfaction of making money at first, in order to make money exponentially in the future. There is no right or wrong, it’s just a matter of knowing which is the best fit for you. Many times the pain of working for someone else who tells you when you can and can’t take a break, what time you must begin and end your work day, and many days has you working overtime because they need you to, comes to a breaking point and you begin to dream of working for yourself. To be an entrepreneur, you must develop the mindset of often-times working in the beginning of a new venture… for nothing. But, this is not the Number One trait. The #1 Trait That All Successful Entrepreneurs Possess is the ability to accept failure. There is just no such a person as a successful person who does not know failure! They simply do not let it stop them. Huge lessons are learned through failing forward. Successful people use those lessons to create their success. Remember, each failure can be a step closer to success. Thomas Edison was an amazing example of failure leading to success: The thousands of experiments with different materials relates to Edison’s later work on storage batteries.  Eventually Edison’s battery experiments involved over 10,000 experiments with different chemicals and materials to develop his alkaline storage battery.  He never tried anywhere near that...

Remember Mr. Miyagi?

  I feel that what we learn, we teach. I read, listen and watch constantly while searching for insights, new things to learn, and for more ways to improve the “Human becoming” that I am. I found the following information valuable, and since many of you come from an network marketing background, and an entrepreneurial spirit, I thought you would appreciate it. In all successful businesses there is a formula for success. The problem is we sometimes don’t follow the given formula! Proven systems such as franchises, demand you follow their system, or you will not be allowed to own one. McDonald’s will take away your franchise if you don’t follow their proven system! McDonald’s also proves that the system is more important than the product. Any successful MLM company has a proven formula, whether direct from the company or a top earning member. My success with MLM did not start until I plugged in to a system. I wasn’t shown this system when I started, so I learned the very hard way what the difference is. When it comes to following a system, you literally have to put on blinders and follow the leader. We must ignore the negative comments from friends and family who think they know better, and move forward with the chosen system. But most importantly, we must ignore our own negative self talk. We need to “get out of our own way”. Sometimes we aren’t sure about the system we’re learning from, so we start thinking of “better ideas”. We start wanting to “re-invent the wheel.” This is soooo based on a total lack of understanding! Enter Mr. Miyagi.  He told the Karate Kid to “wax on, wax off”. He...

What Is the SFM/DEA?

What exactly is the SFM/DEA? This is the question I asked myself, almost one year ago. I was skeptical, which I believe we should all be when offered any “business opportunity”. After doing my due diligence, I dove into the SFM/DEA at the top level. Our commissions are different depending on the level we join at, and I didn’t want to leave any money on the table! Since joining in partnership with this company, with Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek, I have come to know that what I thought this company was, is no where near how amazing it actually is. It is so much more than I could’ve imagined. The SFM/DEA is an online business geared to teaching the tools necessary for how to market a product online. It is a business academy for learning how to become an online marketer, a digital marketer, using Facebook, Google, YouTube and other marketing environments. The SFM/DEA is a community of entrepreneurs all moving in a positive direction supporting one another and encouraging one another in our quest to conquer the world of online marketing. The desire to be in business for ourselves, to work from anywhere in the world, on our own time, to earn as much as we dream, is more than a dream we can all accomplish. All of us at the SFM/DEA want just that!  And after being a part of the community for almost a year, we now know that anyone can do and be all they want. So we have instruction, coaching, and community support. We learn and earn at our own pace. Our accomplishments...
