How Do You Contact People in Network Marketing Today?


Back in 1989 I joined Amway. Shortly after I shared the business opportunity with my friends and family, Then I moved on to share it with my “warm market”. Those are the people you know but don’t really hang with regularly or what I call acquaintances.

Once some of those people get involved with your business, you start helping them and they introduce you to their friends and family group and so it duplicates. Eventually one of a few things happens. You never sponsor anyone else personally and you focus on “depth” or you need to start working with cold contacts.

For many network marketers this is a very scary thing and it certainly can be uncomfortable. The way we learned to do it in the 80’s and 90’s was to go out and meet people specifically for the purpose of contacting them about the business opportunity. I was initially, pretty uncomfortable with this but eventually got good at talking to people.

Cold Contacting Really?!?

Today it may be very difficult to imagine yourself walking up to a stranger and asking them if they would be interested in making more money. They might just run away or think you’re going to harm them in some way. In most cases people are very wary and closed off to strangers as they are constantly being bombarded by people begging for money, pulling a scam, looking to convert them or other more unscrupulous things. It is not a moment of openness generally speaking.

I live on the west coast and here the pace of life is very frantic. Its like that almost everywhere now. So many distractions. So many people; many of them looking down at their cellphones hoping no one talks to them. I saw a woman walking into a building lobby looking down at her cellphone and walk straight into a fountain and right into the water. Wow!

How are they going to notice you are interested in talking to them about improving their health or wealth? They probably won’t.

Today we don’t do things the old ways. They just don’t work very well and who has the time for it? Today we use technology to meet people and communicate more than ever. We may not all like it and wish for the old days again. But in business anyways, its never coming back.

It’s Like Online Dating

When I joined network marketing in 1989 we did not have the internet or “online” anything yet. Only rich people had a cellphone and it was the size of a lunchbox. We had no choice but to meet people face to face or call them on the land line phone and find out if they were interested. Since it was the only way to communicate it was not that odd to contact someone and invite them to look a t a business opportunity. I even called people out if the telephone book. Now who even has a phone book?

Today it’s different, but I don’t need to explain that to you. Today everyone has a cellphone. They don’t always talk on them I’ve learn from my kids. But they do communicate don’t they?

Today we have online everything, right? Even online dating. I now have friends who have met on a dating site, fell in love and have married and had children. In the 80’s and early 90’s that was completely ridiculous to think anyone would meet that way. Today it’s commonplace. This is because we don’t have time to meet other people, other than at work, school or church. That’s not the cold market however.

The same is in network marketing. We can meet our new business associates online. We can create content that allows them to find us and explore the business opportunity we have. And in a way we date and get married if we choose to work together and build a business. It’s a different way to do it that the “old” way but it works for many people now.

Not A Replacement For Building a Relationship

Keep in mind you can still meet in person after you have been communicating by email, text or phone. You can also have a video chat, or Face-time call. If your associate is a long distance apart from you you can still teach, train and support them. We can still get on an airplane and fly to another state to help someone build their business if we want.

You have the ability to expand your circle of cold contacts beyond what you normally would meet in a given period of time and continue to build a good business relationship using a combination of technology and in person methods. Whatever works best for you is the right answer here.

It really is a global economy and you can have a global network marketing business this way.

Whole Plant CBD vs CBD Isolates. Why Whole Plant is better

Hemp oil

There seems to be some confusion in the CBD marketplace about what is better when it comes to getting your CBD from whole plant sources like Hemp or as an isolated single compound. It seems natural that the the whole plant must be better but lets look at the differences.

CBD Isolate

CBD Isolates are all part of what is called “single compound” or “single molecule” CBD.

According to a 2015 study published in the journal Pharmacology and Pharmacy by an Israeli research team they found the following:

“These studies showed that administration of pure, single-molecule CBD resulted in a bell-shaped dose-response curve, meaning that when the amount of CBD exceeded a certain point its therapeutic impact declined dramatically. “Healing was only observed when CBD was given within a very limited dose range, whereas no beneficial effect was achieved at either lower or higher doses,” the authors observed. This characteristic of single-molecule CBD—manifested as a bell-shaped dose response—imposes serious obstacles that limit its usefulness in a clinical context.”

What that means is that if you take the right amount; not too low and not too high, you can certainly see some beneficial results.

Now lets compare the CBD from Whole plant sources.

Whole Plant CBD

The CBD from whole plant sources like HEMP are legal in all 50 states and many countries because it does not contain any THC. You can take this with no worries about legality and workplace drug testing. I would suggest you focus on the whole plant hemp sources if you are very concerned about it as it is a different plant and the CBD is not a marijuana derivative.

According to the Israeli study when they tested the Whole plant CBD the effects were pronounced. The anti-inflammatory effects were signification at any dosage, as they state here:

“it is superior over CBD for the treatment of inflammatory conditions.” The greater efficiency of the whole plant extract might be explained by additive or synergistic interactions between CBD and dozens of minor phytocannabinoids and hundreds of non-cannabinoid plant compounds. “It is likely that other components in the extract synergize with CBD to achieve the desired anti-inflammatory action that may contribute to overcoming the bell-shaped dose-response of purified CBD,” the Israeli team surmised.

Using whole plant hemp gives your body the “entourage effect”. Simply meaning, you benefit from all of the cannabinoids that are found in hemp, along with all of the other beneficial natural compounds hemp contains. Together your body is receiving the maximum benefit from this plant. Cannabinoid receptors are present in every organ of the body, including the nerves for the purpose of reducing the effects of stress. They are the pressure release valve of your body. Out of all of the cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) is the star cannabinoid and works best in the presence of other cannabinoids and compounds found in hemp. CBDs trigger retroactive neuro-transmitters that reduce over stimulated and over stressed nerves. This results in an over stressed person keeping their biochemistry in balance so they can sleep, have an overall feeling of well-being and be less irritable.*

What does all that mean to you and me?

  • It promotes better sleep*
  • You may have less anxiousness*
  • It means less pain. Pain is caused by inflammation. Reducing it, reduces the pain. Plain and simple.*
  • Assists in managing stress*
  • Increases focus*
  • Provides and overall sense of well-being*
  • Restores the body through vital nutrition*

NO. Hemp is not Marijuana!

Hemp is a different plant and has different chemical constituents than marijuana. While they both belong to the same plant species, they are two distinct varieties. The most important difference between hemp and marijuana is that marijuana has high psychoactive THCs (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) however, the hemp used in Hempworx and LiveGood CBD contains such a low level of THC that it is designated as THC free. The hemp plant contains cannabinoids that benefit every organ of the body resulting in a reduction of stress.

The CBD oil I recommend is supplied by LiveGood and is THC free and Non GMO all Organic. To learn more about it CLICK HERE.

Hemp oil

PTSD shows no bias. It affects women in abusive relationships, children in traumatic homes and veterans, post-service. Associated with chronic pain, anxiety, addiction and suicide, PTSD treatment has eluded many of the 3.5 Million Americans searching for relief.

There’s new hope on the horizon: Cannabidiol. A new study from the Frontiers of Pharmacology suggests that CBD properties deliver acute and long-lasting effects in reducing fear memories.

CBD Hemp oil is NON-psychoactive, it will not get you high. This “whole plant hemp oil,” contains CBD and the variety of other natural plant constituents (terpenes, sugars, flavonoids, and secondary cannabinoids) that are found in all parts of hemp and are believed to work better together with the endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system is a series of cannabinoid receptors involved in maintaining the body’s homeostasis, with a strong impact on feelings, mood, pain perception and movement. CBD helps to relieve the effects of PTSD by way of this system.

Hopefully you will find relief the safe and natural way.
