Thoughts of the Day! in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Team Building

24 days ago

P K R:

Preach it!! There is a serious life lesson here. Spend time doing things that bring you joy. Find people that challenge you in a good way, follow their way.

Being honest means you never have to try to recall what you said, you meant what you said and that shows!!

As you move from the darkness, you will notice there are people who are lighting the way you could go! Follow your active upline, it's called DUPLICATION!

I love your post. I encourage everyone to find a way to follow your advice,

Kate

Are You Addicted To Using Smart Phone Too Much ??? in Marketing #Marketing

26 days ago

Bruce:

In many cases, in today's world, the smartphone is another tool.

I work on the road 12-18 days at a time as a trucker.

I use two smartphones and a tablet, as well as a laptop to stay on top of the business while out on the road.
At home, I use a desktop in addition to the above mentioned devices.

When I am working, I don't use the phone. When I am stopped, the smartphone is almost my best friend.

Here's to you!

Where does everyone get the time? in Team Building #Leadership #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Mary:

I spend 11-14 hours a day driving. This thing:



As well you can imagine, there is no doing SFI while I am rolling. I have to stop for a 30 minute break and a 10 hour break.

That is when I get stuff done. I got the job to raise capital so that I could invest while building SFI. I'm very eager for the day when I can toss the keys back to my employer!

That goal makes me get things done. Until I'm there, I got work to do!

New Second Home CSAs - Why? in Miscellaneous #CSA

about 1 month ago

You are looking at the second home CSA program backwards. You're looking at it as the CSAs are a gift to YOU. This isn't the case... the truth is you are the gift to THEM. You are a PROVEN team leader and SFI is entrusting these abandoned affiliates with you. It's up to you... how great a gift are you going to be?



This is exactly how you should feel about your team, be the affiliate a PSA OR CSA.

Leaders create the perception that they are leaders by their actions. Be intentional.

Great answer, Tim!

If I remain an EA, will I lose any of my team? in Team Building #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Mizanur:

I'm going to address commissions. You have been given great advice, nothing "wrong" with staying EA.

As you begin to study the SFI commissions program, one thing that should become very clear is that your commissions are based on CV. You have 2 Team Leaders who are creating CV. This means that you are getting a commission check.

If EVERYONE at SFI understood the commissions and CV and how they relate, it's my belief many more would make a commitment to at least reinvest the earnings they make until they have a viable team built up. This is one way to minimize your "investments" and capitalize on your earnings. I do this to leverage my team building expenses.

When I as a Team Leader begin to tell my teams HOW I am building my teams, they follow. I teach that they should study leaders at SFI to see how each leader chooses to build his or her business. I'll recommend you do the same.

So, my conclusion, while it does not create a "problem" that you do not earn BTL, it DOES create a "perception" that "average" is good. In business, I have found that being "average" can substantially slow your growth. I recommend that you push for STL. You are the ONLY barrier between EA and STL.

When you are ready, step out of your own way and succeed.

I wish many successes come your way!!

Feeling overwhelmed with all the information in Getting Started #Getting Started

about 1 month ago

Tanisha:

There is a massive amount of information on the SFI site. Best way to learn us to read.

That said, there are some key actions you can take to keep it simple.

1. There is no race. It's much better for you to take your time learning. Set yourself a time limit so you so not continue to be overwhelmed. I use my "down" time to let the information I have read sink in, and I mull over it. It just helps me consider the info better.

2. Keep it simple. Earn EA every month. When you have your EA status taken care of, then you can ease your mind and work on other projects like advertising or recruiting.

3. Set yourself simple goals. One perfect goal for the new affiliate is reading all tabs and processing the daily list.

4. Work on developing your reason WHY you want to be a successful SFI Affiliate. Write this down and post it everywhere so it keeps you on task.

5. Reward yourself for the small goal achievements. Always make winning worthwhile. It really is the journey that gives you the best reward.

Steady works best. Good luck!

Keep Your Stride in Team Building #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Why do we see people who have been very active not continuing with daily activity?

We all learned when we first started SFI that the best way to progress and learn about the business is to READ. Just like teachers and doctors, we have to continue reading and when something new comes along, It allows you to make the most of the changes that are happening. Who knows you may decide you like some of these changes.

When we changed from T Credits to Rewardicals I think some people felt like they lost something. Think about what you can do with the rewardicals. Are you short VP to get the most entries into the Daily Drawing? No worries, you can spend 3 rewardicals and get a VP. That is just one of the things you can do with your rewardicals. Take the time to read all about rewardicals, encourage your teams to look at what they can do with them. Be excited about the changes, if you are your team will be too.

How can we get our teams excited again??

Eliminate negativity. If you are seeing negativity from people on your team, reach out. Ask them what is going on. Can you help? We all know that some people expect to join SFI and get rich quick, replacing a paycheck with income from SFI. If they have done the reading and being logging in every day they should have realized that this goal is unrealistic. This does not mean they can build up their business to have a comfortable income.

It just takes time. Time to invest and build up the team(s) below you. Time to read about all the exciting changes. Time to research all of the people on your team. Time to make sound business decisions.

Want success? Stay active. Do something everyday to build your business.

Build them up, Buttercup!

This post is a prime example of why I follow you here at the FORUM. Thank you!!

The lesson here is critical. You MUST follow up when you get a new PSA. Make them feel welcome, warmly welcome.

The basics that you lay out here will create the momentum you also lead up to in your post.

My team will be reading a little blip referring them over to gather the wisdom you have deposited here today.

I'm thrilled you mentioned Astro Auctions. Great prizes for few T-Credits! New tool some are not using yet.

Thank you so much!!

Lesson From Mistakes in Team Building #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Danal:

I believe the best advice I can offer to your experience is this: Do it now, don't wait until the last week.

Every month, I do invest some income towards my team. I know I am going to do that, so I do it on the first day of the month. I have a PSA that also is in the practice of getting the VP and rank taken care of right away.

What this does is establish my month commitment, and free me up so that I can work with my affiliates and advertising campaigns.

The early bird gets the worm!!

I wish you well!!

Expectations from Team Members Actions, compared to Team Leader Actions. in Team Building #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Prabat:

In truth, people follow a leader that is clear about his leadership in action.

In reality, you can have the 10 PRM you are talking about. I've never contacted my PRM team.

I suggest that you become intentional in your leadership and do all the daily activities as well as recruit and teach. People will follow such a leader.

Keep it simple.

What can I do make those I am trying to sponsor become committed? in Team Building #Leadership #PSA

about 1 month ago

Leonard:

The advice I offer is from my experience. I really am very committed to building my business as fast and as solid as I can. You can bet I've pondered the same question you ask today.

You can spin your wheels trying to get others to participate. It likely will not be effective. Everyone in SFI as an affiliate will find their own reason, and their own style and will build (or not) their business the way that they see fit. It's critical to comprehend we are all affiliates running our own businesses.

After much needless angst worrying about my team affiliates and their chosen performances, I took some advice from a Forum post I read. I think it was from an affiliate that has left SFI to pursue other interests. He said, "Mind your own business."

From that day on, I didn't spend my time trying to get anyone to do anything. I DO spend my time recruiting, teaching, and encouraging those that are already interested.

What I discovered was that my time was much better put to use doing things that create movement and growth. In doing daily tasks, I find many of my team are inspired.

So, my advice is simple. Do the basics. Recruit. Teach. Your team will grow in size and develop their knowledge. Be immaculate in your leadership, they will follow.

Best of successes!

After EA can I get any VersaPoints and TCredits? in Miscellaneous #TCredits #VersaPoints

2 months ago

Rejamil:

You can get VP and T-credits anytime you like.

Our sales side, TripleClicks, offers a few different t-credit packages. You earn the valuable sales VP when you purchase or sell T-credit packs. You can also earn Rewardical tokens from sales or purchases.

In fact, as SFI is a MARKETING business, you will find that your business and rank will both grow as you either buy or sell T-credit packs.

Don't hold yourself or your business down. Make the commitment today to grow!

Much success to you.

What is better to be BTL every month ? in Team Building #Leadership #Marketing #Team Building

2 months ago

Zeljko:

I have both as a part of my auto-order. I like and use the T-Credits daily, and I am keen on building my team.

There is never a reason to not bring in PSA from multiple sources. The more the better!

I've read here that we don't really make leaders, we just find them. The more folks that you recruit, the better the chance of you recruiting a leader!

I have produced a BTL as my down line in Getting Started

2 months ago

You can earn commissions from her as an EA.

Wht not earn STL this month? You stand to get a very nice share of CSA this month if you push yourself to the best rank you can earn.

You would also inspire your new BTL as well as your other PSA team.

That's what I'd do. Help yourself to financial freedom!

Best of success!

High VP Legends...How? in Miscellaneous #VersaPoints

2 months ago

Navanithe:

I am not up here because of accident. I'm also not up here because of intent to be on the leader list.

Three years ago, I found myself deeply frustrated because I felt my SFI business was growing too slowly. I HAD to find out how to better succeed.

I spent months following the words of the Leaders on the leader list. I read their affiliate profiles, I read what folks said about them. I read everything I could.

(I also logged in every day. Earned at least 20 VP every day. Recruiting became essential. Teaching was done.)

And here I am today, a leader being studied.

I thank Gery for the system, my teachers, the Leaders, for the inspiration.

I hope you stay hungry in your quest for knowledge and success.

Opti-build reassignments in Team Building #Leadership #Sales #Team Building

Thank you, Adebisi. The coaching you give is sound advice for affiliates.

I'm truly not overly concerned that I'm not bringing in my share of PSA to the Opti-build program.

I am looking to get all my Team Leaders to opt in so that my entire team can benefit from the recruiting I do.

new members can not sign up on my account in Team Building

2 months ago

If they are trying to sign up with SFI have them use this link - www.sfi4.com/XXXXXXXX.9999/FREE but fill in your SFI ID where the X's are and keep the .9999 so they get assigned to you. This information is available by going to the Reference section and clicking on Gateway List. If you go there it will show you this link with your ID in place of the X's and you will just have to add the .9999. You want to be sure you do not allow anyone else to use your personal SFI login. If you search ROS it will take you to the rules and regulations that govern the use of your personal SFI login. Awesome job recruiting, keep up the good work!

Opti-build reassignments in Team Building #Leadership #Sales #Team Building

3 months ago

Every month, I have one or two affiliates on my team that choose to NOT opt in on the Opti-build program. As it happens, every Designated Diamond under the affiliate that made TL, yet did not opt in on Opti-build, does NOT receive overflow auto reassigned PSA.

Best way to describe it is that it's like the flow is blocked by the non-conforming Affiliate.

I don't want to micromanage the affiliates, or their choices on how to manage their own business. I do get concerned about the effect on those who DID earn Designated Diamond, and are not rewarded.

Is this a programming error?

Any suggestions on how to help my deeper team affiliates?

I can run co-ops, and I'm still wanting my Team Leaders to help grow their own teams.
