An Affiliate asked:
“Can I set up my SFI business to run on autopilot? If so, how?
Sure, but this must be your destination, not your vehicle.
What I mean is that our goal as SFI Affiliates, is to become financially free.
Financially free means that you keep receiving a monthly passive income big enough to cover all the expenses of the lifestyle you dream about, without being obliged to work for that.
It is certainly achievable for you too, simply because using actively the proven SFI system for a few years, YOU will be able to build a solid network of REAL and active people working for themselves and consequently for you. This will happen only if you will be a positive and active example for them to duplicate.
That network will eventually be your solid and effective ‘autopilot’, which will allows you to run your business and actually producing the income you want with no more effort. But the only reason we exist as SFI Affiliates, is exactly to initially work and build our own ‘autopilot’.
And you can do it having a lot of fun all along the journey, as the SFI community gives you all the tools and training you need in order to build it… FOR FREE! You just have to persistently use some of your time and passion until your network is built.
So…have fun and enjoy the journey!Follow @ClubshopReal
One of my newest PSAs just emailed me very, very depressed, because of some difficulty he encountered during his every day tasks as an Affiliate.
I often receive this kind of message. I think the point is not what kind of difficulties each one of us can find on our way, but what our attitude is towards them.
Which, ultimately is what separates winners from losers.
The following is what I just answered to my demotivated friend:
Hi Friend, thank you for your message.
I have a question for you: what do you think sport champions, richest men in the world, great entrepreneurs, legendary artists and probably 100% of all other successful people in the world have in common?
I think they all traveled the same path of difficulties, obstacles and failures.
Which is also the same path started by a lot of other people who never succeed in their life.
What is the difference between these winners and these losers?
For me it’s very simple:
– winners take all those difficulties, obstacles and failures as ways to improve themselves, accumulate experience and knowledge, so they become stronger and stronger day after day. For them, giving up is not an option. They like challenges and they literally eat-up whatever could threaten their upcoming success. I like to see them as Lion type of people.
– losers use all those same difficulties, obstacles and failures as excuses to prepare themselves to quit with no regrets. They will feel good knowing their failure is not their fault, in fact they always blame external factors, never themselves. I can’t see them like lions as they look to me more like rabbit kind of people.
In SFI business, just like it happens in all other kind of big things, if you want to be a top earner, you need to be a Lion and be happy each time you have a new challenge to overcome.
You now why? Because this is what allows you to get the education, awareness and strength you need if you really wish to achieve your dreams.
The good news is that in this game, being a lion or a rabbit is just your choice.
Your wealth will be the result of how strong you became all along the way.
So…stop whining and start to enjoy the journey!Follow @ClubshopReal
We are all aware that when a team of people, doesn’t know what to do or where to go, it simply does nothing and goes nowhere.
Rather when we have a clear and simple step by step strategy to follow, to achieve a clear and tangible goal, everybody is potentially able to do persistently the right thing.
That’s when we start seeing an exponential growth of our team. Why do I say “potentially”? Because this is true only if your burning desire is bigger than your fears.
And as per my personal experience, I know that at least 90% of people out there are victims of their own fear and get stuck in their unsatisfactory status-quo.
Consequently it’s easy to understand that if you are one of those 10% of brave people with no fear, driven by a big wish of freedom, you need to be a kind of head hunter, working persistently to find at least 5 people willing just like you, to duplicate the same proven strategy. So first of all decide which system you are going to follow, commit yourself to following it and never give up.
A very good idea about a strategy for everybody to follow, could be based on what has just been posted in SFI’s official news blog: “Get the MOST from TripleClicks PSAs To Go and auction-won PSAs!“. I urge you to read and fully understand that article before you proceed with this one.
Have you read it?
Did you also check out Gery’s SFI Co-op Manager & The Magic Of Co-oping article? Good; let’s move on then: Let’s say you want to inject in just a few days 500 additional Affiliates in your team, with the aim of getting from 1 to 10% of brave and serious ones. How would you do it? Among the different options below, which one would you prefer in order to achieve this goal?
I don’t know which one you have chosen, but let’s talk here about my preferred one; option #4: If you want to Order 500 PSAs To Go at TripleClicks you should be ready to invest in 10 Packages of 50 PSAs each, which would correspond to $139 x 10 = $1390.
Not everybody can afford this amount of course. So what? Must that be a reason to give up this strategy? For most of the people it will be. But not for the winners.
In fact as Robert Kiyosaki teaches, a real winner will never say things like “I can’t afford it”. Rather he would ask himself: “How can I afford it?”
So, lets see now an example: how can I afford to Order 500 “PSAs To Go” at TripleClicks?
Well, consider that every day hundreds of SFI Affiliates are buying packages of 10 PSAs, at $39 ($3.9 each).
If you could offer all existing Affiliates in your team to get together in your own Co-op initiative and buy the same package of 10 PSAs at $32, it would represent for them a 18% savings for each package they order!
They would be really happy to participate in your co-op rather than buying directly at TripleClicks. Don’t you think? So, all you have to do is:
SMART HINT: if you place these orders as “Standing Orders”, you will pay only $2.53 per unit, saving an additional 9%!)
If your goal was 500 PSAs to add to your existing network, you will look for instance for 50 participants who will buy 10 PSAs each (or 25 participants who will buy 20 each). Result?
So, you have a net profit of $210 which you fully deserve as a leader of your growing team and because of the time and energy you spent putting all these people together in your Co-op. And you can repeat this win-win process as many times as you want.
Even because it’s normal that if your participating Affiliates are really serious about building their strong and profitable business, they will need more than just 10 PSAs To Go in the weeks and months to come.
But what is more important is that now in your team you have 500 new Affiliates, and it is very likely that among them you will find some serious people who will start to duplicate this same model very soon.
Can you imagine how fast your network will grow once even only 4 or 5 of your Affiliates do that? And what about your earnings?
Don’t forget that a very important aspect of all this is that each package of 50 PSAs To Go at TripleClicks, will add 1,622 VP (Matching VersaPoints) to your Network, plus of course all the monthly VP they will produce once they start shopping at TripleClicks.
I know that many of you guys still have to start working seriously at this business, so you don’t yet have a team to involve in your Co-op.
Well, in this case you are part of those brave and serious ones who just have to join an existing Co-op to get your first PSAs.
Once you will have enough Affiliates, you will be able to run your own Co-op too. Happy Co-oping!Follow @ClubshopReal
A PSAs emailed me:
Dear Fabrizio, Good day to you.
I am worried about that I have 11 PSA’s and 24 CSA’s and no one is active, all are below the green line and some of them have zero VP,
I sent them Welcome card, encouraging mails, go ahead, how to move further, what are the ways to get VP’S to get EA status.
I am not getting response from anyone of my PSA’s and CSA’s.
I am trying to connect them, I made up my Leadership Page.
I am worried what should I do at this time.
Kindly reply me.
Dear friend, no need to be worried as what you described is absolutely normal.
This is a game of numbers. Even tough each person who signed up as SFI Affiliate is potentially interested to make money online, doesn’t mean they are immediately prepared and willing to learn and work.
Generally speaking, that’s also the reason why they are currently in need of money. If they were the kind of people with entrepreneurial mind, really ready and willing to learn and work, probably they were already rich.
Rather, that’s exactly our job as their Sponsor: we have to learn ourselves first, improve our communication skills, build our credibility, grab their attention, increase their interest and eventually motivate them to learn and work in order to duplicate themselves, teaching the same pattern to their own 5 serious PSAs.
Once at least one of your existing PSA achieve the latter of the conditions above, it will be a victory for both of you. At that point you just have to duplicate the same pattern with 4 other PSAs.
I urge you to read this article I posted about inactive Affiliates not long ago: The Key of Success.
Hope this helps.Follow @ClubshopReal
Dear inactive Affiliate, you are part of one of the most incomprehensible categories I can imagine. 🙂
It’s a category with no name, very well established in every single Country of the 5 continents, which counts a huge amount of people, all with the same following contradictions, which set them apart from the category of successful people. In fact they:
It’s so sad. Isn’t it?
In another post in this blog I said something like: “Keep it simple, be lazy and let the system work for you“. But probably some of you misunderstood my message!
That post actually meant: organise the system first! Only then you can let it work for you, enjoy your money and free time to live a better life, exploiting your talents without having to worry about money.
Rather, just being lazy is not a good thing at all of course, as it can really lead you to live a very difficult life.
I remember that when I was a little child, I often wondered how could it be possible that one of the seven deadly sins in Christian moral tradition was sloth (laziness). Now I understand it much better.
I mean; at that time, it didn’t seem to be such a bad thing to me. Well, it’s true that my mum used to get a bit upset if I didn’t tidy my room or didn’t take the dog out for a walk or other stuff like this…but apart from that how could God possibly be so angry with me for such little things?
I couldn’t imagine myself going to hell just for not having been extremely reactive when the kitchen bin needed to be emptied.
Later on I understood that in fact the problem with laziness, was not exactly about “going to” hell. Rather it had mainly to do with “living a” hell on earth.
And immediately things about laziness started to make much more sense to me. I started to see everywhere signs of the laziness of people, me included.
If for instance someone keeps being lazy about emptying the bin and so does the rest of his family, in a few days or weeks, that entire kitchen will be filled of all kinds of rubbish. A few more weeks and months of laziness and all sort of things could happen and transform that entire house into hell, with putrefaction and illnesses spreading throughout the whole neighbourhood.
This is a little bit extreme of course, but it gives the idea. If a person doesn’t stop being lazy, in the long term a kind of “hell” could happen in any other aspects of his life on earth; money, health, relationships, etc.
So what now?
First of all be ready to make some efforts, be willing to learn, and expect to face some frustration along the road, but be committed to never give up.
Make sure your mission and your long term goal are clear.
Meaning: achieve your goal running through your mission.
My mission, as you can understand even from the title of this blog, is to help the maximum amount of people worldwide, to achieve their Financial Freedom.
Not everybody has a clear idea of what financial freedom means. Basically it means to earn enough money to cover all your expenses for the rest of your life, without having to keep working.
In other words it means having all the free time you wish and the money needed to enjoy it. But this is still not precise enough. So keep following me.
What kind of monthly income do you actually need in order to be free?
Being an employee making let’s say 10,000$ (gross) a month in earned income (Vs. Passive Income), working 40 hours per week, 49 weeks per year being subordinated to your boss who could even fire you when he wants, would it be enough to consider yourself as a “free” person?
No, of course, NOT! Because if for any reason you stop working or you lose your job, your earned income immediately goes to zero. And during the past years you certainly heard a lot about struggling Companies, obliged to fire their employees even though they’d been working for them for decades.
It always breaks my heart to see those poor people desperate with no more jobs, just because years before they chose to look for a “safe and secure job” rather than learn how to build their own business and be more in control of their financial future.
And this is exactly what a Company like SFI offers; it provides the tools and teaches all of us, how to build our own commercial network as a component of its network, in order to generate a passive monthly income which we’ll keep receiving even when we’ll decide to stop working.
Which is exactly what our minimum goal has to be: keep receiving a passive income greater than our every day expenses.
So you can understand that making the same amount of 10,000$ a month in passive income, rather than earned income, really makes a huge difference.
Even because if you hope to earn 10,000$ a month through a traditional job, you can probably wait your whole life and maybe the whole of the next one. Rather, if you want to make it through your own SFI Business, you just have to put the system in motion and let it work for you.
So the first question you have to ask yourself, it’s not if you can make money with SFI or not. It’s: how much do I want to earn each month through my SFI Business?
First of all let’s have a global vision of the steps needed:
1st step: create a passive income big enough to pay your current expenses.
2nd step: increase your passive income in order to have an additional amount of money (cash flow) every month, to save and invest in more assets which on the one hand, will create an additional source of passive income for you and on the other hand will add additional financial security to your life and your next generations.
3rd step: use the cash flow generated by your investments, to pay for your luxury stuff and/or purchase more assets, which in turn will keep producing even more additional income and so on and so forth…
Do you think all this sounds very interesting? I’m sure you do. Because you understand that this is a real and probably the only path you can follow nowadays if you are really serious about becoming wealthy.
In the next articles I will post over the next days, we’ll see each one of the 3 steps described above separately.
In the mean time be happy and stay tuned, because I want you to become a rich SFI Affiliate. Consequently I will too. 🙂Follow @ClubshopReal
That’s my way to be always highly motivated and enthusiastic, especially at the beginning, when of course the earnings can only be close to zero.
So it’s very simple: I set my goal and the milestones on the way to these goals, then I prepare the simplest plan possible to go from where I am now to the preset goal, passing through all those milestones I previously identified.
Once this is done, I simply start my journey and never stop until the goal is achieved.
I imagine at this point your question could be: “how can I setup an achievable and tangible goal if I just started a new business that I don’t know yet?”
Well, the answer is really simple: just spend most of your time during the first weeks, studying everything about your new business. If you really want to succeed in any kind of business in this world, It is 100% your responsibility to get all the knowledge you need to get there.
You need to perfectly understand and be part of the new context you just entered. That’s the only way for you to be soon aware of the huge income producing potential you definitely have as a SFI Affiliate.
SFI offers a vast amount of training and information on his website, so of course I won’t treat this subject in this post.
One thing to know is that if I start a business, it’s because since the very first day I keep this indestructible conviction always present in my mind:
“If someone really makes money with this Company, for sure I will be one of them.”
It’s a kind of magic thing for me, as it ALWAYS works! 🙂
Then I start to plan, but my problem is that I am not very good at planning long-term goals. So I start questioning myself about stimulating short terms goals, quite easy to achieve and from where I will be able to see better the next one.
You know…I’m not very good at seeing around the corner until I have reached and turned the corner.
So usually, my first goal IS the corner, knowing that once this first “corner” has been achieved, I’ll have better skills, more experience and even more self confidence than now, which will allow me to start the new easier run towards the “next corner”.
And, what is even more important, I know that the run itself will be a lot of fun for me, whether I’ll achieve my goal sooner or later (not achieving the goal is not an option).
As an example, The 3-step plan video is a full strategy which has been prepared taking full advantage of this corner concept.
But, to understand what I mean, let’s see for instance how I would create the plan to run to the first “corner”:
– How to build a 500$/monthly passive income within 12 months.
First of all: what does “passive income” mean in this case?
Passive income is money that you keep receiving month after month, thanks to an asset that you have previously created.
So, it’s clear that first of all you have to create the asset. But, what is an asset?
An asset is something that you own, which every day/month/year, keeps pumping money into your pockets, even if you are sleeping, on holiday or playing golf, as it doesn’t require your physical presence to keep producing money.
How can we create an asset? Investing time or money. Or both!
As a SFI Affiliates, what kind of asset can each one of us create? A downline! – Our own downline of SFI Affiliates and TC Members is our asset from which we receive our passive income.
The bigger your downline, the more passive income and free time you have. Isn’t it exciting?
So, how can I create a huge downline with hundreds and thousands of Affiliates and TC Members in it, producing thousands of dollars in passive income every month, when I start from zero? No idea!
That’s normal. Nobody has any idea about how to succeed, when starting a new business or a job or a sport that have never practiced before.
So, if I were a 9-year old boy dreaming about being a tennis champion of the universe, I’d better start taking some basic lessons, keep practicing, train, participate to some local tournaments, then regional, national, international, intergalactic and so on and on… ; )
In the same way, as a SFI Affiliate you can also participate and win your very first “local tournament”, which will give you more confidence allowing you to achieve better and better results.
Here is an example:
Problem: how can I build a downline able to produce a $500 passive income within the next 12 months?
– Inputs from SFI’s compensation plan:
DIRECT COMMISSIONS – Increase your earnings by generating sales at TripleClicks.com: Each time someone you’ve told about TripleClicks or SFI buys something at TripleClicks.com, you earn a sweet 45% CV Direct Commission!
TRIPLECLICKS EXECUTIVE POOL – Maximise your income with sponsoring and duplication: The KEY to creating a major income in SFI is by learning to lead and grow a TEAM of active SFI affiliates. VersaPoints Matching means that every month you can get matching shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool on every affiliate under you within up to 12 generations downline
$500/month in direct commissions. At the beginning of your business you could consider working mainly personally, developing your first generation as much as possible, while learning how to create duplication in your team and lead an entire downline of people which will be soon 12 generations deep.
Consequently your income in this first period will be generated mainly by Direct Commissions, on which you can have a better control. These serious PSAs will be the seeds to start later on, the duplication process in your team to let explode your income thanks to the EP (Executive Pool).
|Standing Orders||Direct Comm.||N. PSA||Passive Income|
So now the question is: how can you have these 35 serious PSA in your first generation in 12 months time?
You’ve started and now realise that 35 PSA/month are not enough? No problem; try with 300 per month. Anyway you will improve this ratio all along the way.
So, how can you sponsor 300 PSA per month? Your new SFI Marketing Center provides you with all the proven methods and aids you need. It’s just up to you to choose the ones you prefer and use them persistently, according to your goal.
But the easiest way of course is the Co-op, which can provide you with no effort, all the PSA you need to work your plan, every month.
You also have another option: find a plethora of excuses and give-up once you find the very first obstacle on your way.
But remember that what makes winners different from losers, is their willingness to overcome obstacles and standup again each time they fall. Until they win.Follow @ClubshopReal
Very often, I take a close look at my SFI Genealogy Report, just to see who are the most active Affiliates in my downline, see their faces, where they come from, what they suggest, what they have done so far in this business, and ultimately imagine how their life currently is and how it could possibly improve in just a few years, as a result of what they are doing today.
This is really a fantastic way for me to spend some moments just relaxing, while my mind is flying from one Country to another and “meet” these beautiful people, experiencing the wonderful feeling of having been able to do something useful and helped them to improve their financial future and consequently, their lives.
The positive impact on other people’s lives we all can have as SFI sponsors, I think is definitely the best aspect of our business.
But automatically, this practice also obliges me to see how many inactive affiliates are “sleeping” there in my downline.
Even if I’m already aware of that, It always surprises me to see that the majority of my downline affiliates are totally inactive and I wonder: “as all these people are certainly interested in making money (otherwise they would have never signed up as Affiliates) how come that they are not willing to move a finger to build their secure income?”
I can understand some of them, let’s say 10%, have some real good reason (I don’t know what is, but probably some good excuse really exists ; ), but what about the remaining 90% of those inactive affiliates?
You know; I started this business from scratch only a few months ago and I immediately started to make very good money. So from my position it’s hard to understand how other people still cannot see the same huge opportunity I saw when I was in their same situation just a while ago.
I really think that 100% of people interested in making a lot of money online can only be very interested in building their own SFI business. Rather, this is actually true for a much smaller percentage of current Affiliates. Why?
Well, in my opinion the answers are the same causes that, especially in the so called “developed Countries”, keep people in a situation of poverty, making it very hard for them to get out of it.
These causes are with no doubt; ignorance and fear. Where probably fear is the direct consequence of ignorance.
Majority of people in these countries in fact, still have a mentality that leads them to seek first of all for “job security” rather than wealth and freedom. Just because since they were at school, they have been taught the same concept made famous by Robert Kiyosaki’s poor dad: “get good marks, find a job, save money, live frugally get out of debt”.
Which is probably the concept which has contributed the most, to create the unbelievable mass of poor people we have today in the developed Countries, where the majority of people is more willing to loose part of their freedom seeking for a traditional job as employee, helping other people (…their boss rather than themselves) to become richer and richer, rather than starting their own business with a vision more oriented to an entrepreneurial future, which could rapidly create higher income and more free time to better enjoy their lives.
Even if it sounds just like a no-sense to me, I can understand that, because everything depends on what people consider to be risky or secure.
In fact I realise that I have probably been quite lucky when I was young, as I have never been an excellent student. Consequently, I always had quite clear in mind that if I really wanted to be rich I definitely had to be an entrepreneur rather than an employee.
Just because even if I was an average student, my ambitions and dreams have never been “average dreams” and very soon I became perfectly aware that in the ongoing hard competition of the employees’ world, where only one out of thousands of people can attain a relevant and well paid position, my chances of being that “lucky” one were probably close to zero and so were my odds of fulfilling my dreams.
Furthermore, I never conceived myself as someone able to put the control of my financial future (hence my entire life) in the hands of someone other than myself. I always considered this really risky!
The idea of asking someone to hire me, was something close to the idea of selling my freedom just to work for the rest of my life for a very limited salary, with the only “security” of never being able to get out of the average level and the additional high risk of falling one day or another even lower than that, depending on the mood of my potential bosses.
For the majority of people worldwide this above is exactly the idea of “job security“. For me it was the most risky thing to do. Opposite to all my dreams.
In a few words I’ve always had perfectly clear in my mind that the right path to become rich is certainly not to work for others.
I don’t wanna say that everybody in the world should be an entrepreneur of course. It just depends on everyone’s ambitions: if you feel a kind of frustration about what your current situation is, and you would like to achieve your deserved financial security, rather than an uncertain “job security” I think you’d better consider to start right now your own business, rather than looking for a traditional job.
Unfortunately for them, many people are still stuck in the old industrial age mindset and are still not able to perfectly “see” the huge opportunities available today.
In the same way, talking about Network Marketing, many people are still stuck in the old concept of what Network Marketing has been over the past decades and they are still not able to see what NM actually is now in the information age.
In fact, all limits that Network Marketing used to have in the past, don’t exist anymore. They have been totally swept away by new technology and the vision and skills of certain entrepreneurs like SFI’s President Gery Carson.
Today, Network Marketing opportunities like SFI, have nothing to do with the old limited concepts that made it an opportunity where only a small percentage of people were really able to attain outstanding results.
Why? Just a few clear facts to avoid making this post too long:
1) today you don’t need at all to lose friends and families stressing them until they hate you, just to sell them some product they are not interested in.
– In fact now your market is the entire world, you are not selling a specific and high priced product and you can also participate to co-operative marketing initiatives, to get all the Affiliates you need to plan, build and consolidate your business.
2) Today you can’t say “I don’t have time”. You don’t need to take your car to go everywhere to make presentations of your products and/or opportunity, or attend long and tedious weekly meeting miles away from you.
– In fact now you are basically sharing online a proven system which will work automatically for you, once you have set it up.
3) Today you don’t have to attend expensive seminars during the weekends.
– Everything today is much simpler, consequently the learning curve is much faster and you can do everything from your computer, even supported by your sponsor. For free!
4) Today you don’t have to invest in expensive initial kits and stock products in your garage.
– You start a sophisticated business like SFI, totally free and you will never have to buy, sell and ship any product.
5) Today you don’t have to wait ages in order to start earning seriously.
– As things are simpler and easier for everybody, a much higher percentage of Affiliates in your downline will become motivated and active, so your business can grow much faster and increase steadily your income month after month.
As you can easily understand, today Network Marketing opportunities like SFI are really for everybody. You just need to start getting involved somehow.
Do this just with the aim of increasing your knowledge about it. Automatically you will get rid of all your fears and very soon, you will be able to create a business plan knowing exactly what to do month after month, year after year, to become rich.
Also, inform your upline sponsors about your commitment. They will monitor your results and start supporting you more and more.
In this moment you have one more exciting tool to help you get started right away; The Winter 2014 Leadership Challenge. it’s an easy contest which will allow you also to win nice and useful prizes.
Not sure if your business will work for you? Then you have an alternative: do nothing and you will be sure that you will never become rich.
As always; you are the only one responsible of your success or failure.
Do the right thing and start doing it now! One day you will be glad you did.Follow @ClubshopReal
