"Sales Advice From A Woman Who Made $18 Million Last Year..."
By E. R. Haas - May 2, 2012
"I succeed on my own personal motivation, dedication, and commitment. My mindset is: If I'm not out there training, someone else is." ~ Lynn JenningsAll -
Just a quick idea and a TOOL (below) that will help you immensely.
First the short story. Every word is true. Had it checked independently!
Last Friday I had the pleasure of talking to a woman that is truly living the dream. Actually, a woman who turned a NIGHTMARE, into a dream OPPORTUNITY that most of us only hope and pray for.
Jennifer (not her real name) got laid off from IBM back in 1997 when they were "downsizing" employees out the door, one right after the other. Jennifer never saw it coming. She thought that since she was in her prime (41), a well-educated, hardworking sales manager in a big division, that she would NEVER get whacked (AKA "Pink Slipped".)
But she did, and it put her into a 2 year funk.
She believed that somehow she was not good enough, capable enough or smart enough to really make it in the corporate world anymore. She was washed up and hung out to dry.
The funk turned into clinical depression. The job offers stopped.
She was quite literally starving herself to death, both emotionally and financially.
Not knowing what to do, she found a friend who was making a decent living with a major network marketing company and decided to just TRY her hand at putting on a few parties with her friend.
But she instantly saw what the problem was: TRAINING.
She saw that the only way for her to make money in that tough-as-nails business was to create leverage by TRAINING every person she recruited to be the BEST representative possible. She would marry the training skills she learned at IBM with the women she was now working with.
The premise was simple: Better TRAINED people make more SALES... and when THEY make more sales... SHE makes more MONEY.
She became VERY VERY VERY good at taking both men and women into this company, and training them to excel at what they do. Quickly, 20-30% of her people left their "day" jobs and were making a good living selling the program.
She got rich! Very rich, earning over $18,000,000 last year.
For those of you who are "decimal-challenged", that's Eighteen Million Dollars!
In fact, she just bought a Villa in Italy from which she is going to launch her European and Russian programs. Giving women the hope that they can make it, and make it big anywhere, if they simply follow her lead.
Fast forward to my conversation with her Friday.
Jennifer has been a TQ Member for about 4 years now, and shared a secret to her recent success with me. An idea that can be used in any setting: sales, management, marketing, promotions, job reviews and of course, TRAINING those around you to immediately produce greater RESULTS. (Remember, YOUR ultimate success depends on both those people ABOVE and BELOW you. It is impossible to make it alone. It is the whole idea behind Team TQ.)
The "Secret" she uses? Train people out of the gate to realize that success is a simple matter of MORE Positives and FEWER Negatives driving their performance.
If you want success, focus on filling your life with the Positive qualities and minimizing or eliminating the Negative qualities. This is real enlightenment to people who have not had a chance to look at success as a collection of positive qualities outweighing a collection of negative qualites. It gives clarity to their direction and it works hand in hand with all we do at TQ.
This comes straight from The Power of TQ and 10 Choices of Intentional Excellence. It is called our Thin Line Chart, or 100 Proof presentation. Here is a link to the PDF that you may use to help you, and others instantly improve their success potential:

How does she use this exciting tool?
