Network marketing can be seriously hard but the time you spend marketing your company products doesn’t have to be difficult at all.
Hi! I’m Melissa.
They say that the moment you have your first child everything changes. It changed way before then for me.
How I Got Here
I had lost a man that I cared very much for to drug overdose. I had lost the future that I thought that I had with him.
Shortly after his death I wound up pregnant with another man’s child. I was looking for a way to bandage the wound of losing him. Little did I know at the time that she was the element that would help me heal.
When I discovered I was pregnant I stopped spending time with bad influences, started thinking about my future, and started to wonder how I would provide for a child since I was unemployed at the time.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. I had a slight income coming in from Veteran Benefits for service connected issues from my time in the US Navy.
I decided to invest in a business. I joined It Works! because I believed in the product. I still do even though I am not currently selling it.
Ultimately I failed at this business as with several before it. It had nothing to do with the company. My upline was incredible. It had everything to do with me.
The key to surviving failure is to learn from it and chart a new course based on the new information gained. That’s what I did.
What caused the failure?
When I started this business I didn’t consider how having a newborn to care for, and the fact that I had a lot of health problems at the time, would factor into the equation.
They were not the cause of my failure. Although, in hindsight, a lack of energy from lack of sleep from a newborn was a major contributing factor.
A fear of rejection, lack of income to sustain the monthly cost of buying product, and a perceived lack of network are what caused the failure.
All of which ultimately came down to me and my lack of faith in myself.
The key to surviving failure is to learn from it and chart a new course based on the new information gained.~Melissa Hoff~
I also found along the way that a lack of education was also a contributing factor. Not traditional education. An education that can only come from experience and learning from people who are experts in this profession. An education I will be passing on to you through this website.
I’ve started and failed in multiple businesses online and offline because of a lack of education in network marketing, online and offline marketing and traffic generation.
I’ve spent nearly two years studying the methods you will find on this website so that I can succeed in my networking business.
Momma to Momma
I’m here to help!
As a mother of a toddler I know that there are only so many hours in a day to care for your children, work, take care of yourself, your home and a make a business work.
I know that a business in the start up phase can be expensive and time consuming. Even for a network marketer.
People often assume a business in a box takes no time to set up. Not true. Especially if you want to be successful. And even more so if you have little ones running around.
My Promise to You
I will be providing many resources specifically geared toward network marketers such as yourself who are willing to put in a few more hours in the beginning to be able to get a business that will not take as many hours to manage in the future (at least not the marketing side of it). All without building a blog in the beginning.
These techniques can be incorporated into your party plan or individual sales programs. You never have to sell online with what I teach.
What secrets can I divulge to assist you in your network marketing?
- You will learn traffic methods using social media and more.
- You will learn how to capture a lead.
- You will learn how to keep that lead.
- You will learn about sales funnels. What they are and how they work.
- You will learn about ways to expand your income beyond just your network marketing company products if you so desire.
- You will learn how to apply this same system to both online and offline marketing.
I hope to give you a system, and the keys to unlock it, to allow you to find your own place in the online network marketing arena. My goal is to connect with other mother’s who want to achieve freedom in their lives through network marketing.
Let’s build a bridge to a greater tomorrow. Leave your comments below to introduce yourself or ask a question! I look forward to a long journey with you by my side.
Lots of love,
