The Best Way To Build A Team Starting Today in Team Building #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

13 hours ago

Tommy, that's great if you don't work 40-60 hours per week at a full-time job, which is needed to support a family while you are building an online income. It's time for some of you to get real with the REAL people out here trying to make a living while at the same time trying to build an online business. Free advertising is great for those of you who have the time to put into it...be honest with the people reading your posts...free advertising means a lot of time spent earning those advertising credits. Do not mislead the newbies into thinking free advertising is fast and easy because it is not...I have done this for 2 years and have worked hard at an outside fulltime job and taking care of a family.

All I am saying is...keep it real for all

Simple Tutorials for Hidden Game in Eager Zebra #Contests #Eager Zebra #TripleClicks

25 days ago

To help my team members in the game Hidden, especially those in countries other than the United States, I told them to use a Thesaurus which they can find free online. Then, being as I began playing Hidden soon after it debuted, I created my own Hidden Thesaurus. I have been updating it daily and publishing it to my team members who provide me their email address and a request to receive it as a download each month.

Personally, I do not see a video as being necessary. Just my thoughts.

2019 New Years Resolution in Compensation #Compensation #Getting Started

about 1 month ago

Going into the new year, I want to remind everyone of the first key element in earning with SFI:
Reading = Learning...Learning = Earning
If you are not willing to read and learn, then you will not earn...it's that simple. I am only being honest with you, so please do not take offense to the facts. Instead, incorporate this into your New Year's Resolutions and see a more prosperous 2019!

CSA / PSA / NSA balance idea in Suggestion Box #Compensation #CSA #Team Building

2 months ago

You misunderstood my post...I did not mean "give up". To receive Second Home CSA's you have to "opt in". All I meant was that it is a choice we have. As for the CSA's activity level...most of my active CSA's have come to me as Second Home CSA's. I see them as my reward for the efforts I make to attract new PSA's. Activity level is never guaranteed whether it be PSA's, CSA's or PRM's.

CSA / PSA / NSA balance idea in Suggestion Box #Compensation #CSA #Team Building

2 months ago

I like the way Gery and his team have set up the new Compensation Plan. No, I do not want to give up my Second Home CSA's. If you wish to do so, just "Opt Out".
Just my opinion.

Set up restriction in Suggestion Box #Compensation #Rewardical #VersaPoints

3 months ago

Personally, I do not believe any restrictions should be imposed. Using Rewardicals to achieve and/or maintain income rank gives all affiliates hope. Without hope they quit.

Hidden clues could be pictures! in Suggestion Box #Contests #Eager Zebra #TripleClicks

3 months ago

Maybe Gery's team could create a game similar to Hidden, but with pictures instead.
Personally, I love Hidden as it is.
Just my thoughts.

CSA Exchange - "down for maintenance" in Team Building #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

4 months ago

The CSA Exchange has been under maintenance since the inception of the new Compensation Plan. Corporate is working on a way to make it work with multiple Co-Sponsors...Gery's team will figure it out and I'm sure there will be an announcement when it is available again.

New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

7 months ago

Thank you, Chris. If the persons liking the multiple answer posts would stop, then maybe it wouldn't happen
so much because the one posting will understand that "Readers" will not react to their post, but ignore it.
Worse is when they answer after Gery, himself, has answered it.

For the same reason, I read the forum but don't post unless I need to or I know the answer is already posted
by another affiliate.

New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

8 months ago

Would EVERYONE, except Gery, please read my "original forum post" and then read your answer?...hmmm
Most of your answers have nothing to do with my original post. Plus, after being with SFI for 2 years, wouldn't
you assume I had already read what all of you are posting?

This has come up in many forum posts in the past...READ THE ENTIRE POST before you respond.
Example: Gery, himself, answered my question...
Why would affiliates even post ANYTHING after Gery's answer if it was not a subsequent question that
pertained to my post?

SMH....just as they say "think before you speak", PLEASE!...think before you post.

I am not being mean, but being practical and adult here...READ, READ, READ...please!!!

Suggestions for my two problems in Suggestion Box #PSA

8 months ago

Milorad, you keep referring to "salary" and "pay based on hours worked"...SFI is a business opportunity,
not a paid salary or hourly "job". This mindset only creates an unnecessary stumbling block for yourself and your
signups. Just my thoughts, but I see my investment as an investment in My SFI Business. As for the amount you
invest, set yourself a budget and stick to it...that is what I have done.

Be patient and see how the New Compensation Plan plays out for you.

New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

8 months ago

With the new Compensation Plan regarding additional Co-Sponsors for each affiliate,
do all CSA's, regardless of number of Co-Sponsors, have opportunity to evaluate all
of their Co-Sponsors each month? Or will they be limited only to their original
Co-Sponsor? I am asking this because I have already had communication with a few
of my new CSA's who welcomed my newsletter.

T-time game to be change to rewardical game in Suggestion Box

9 months ago

Not a good idea, in my opinion. Many new affiliates who have limited funds need the T-Credits from T-Time to help them earn VP's. There are enough changes already that award Rewardicals.

support for btl,Stl and gtl for team leader,,, in Team Building #VersaPoints

9 months ago

Consejo, I think you are misunderstanding this. If you go to your To Do List, it explains that you will receive 100 VP for each PSA who reaches each of these ranks.
Example: You have a PSA who reaches Executive Affiliate
You receive 100 VP
This same PSA reaches Bronze Team Leader
You receive another 100 VP for a total of 200 VP for that one PSA
Hope this clarifies this for you.
