“Look Deep, Deep,
DEEP Into My Eyes!”
Your Business Life Expectancy Is About 45
OK. You nailed me. That’s an exaggeration.
But not by a lot.
Ninety percent of new businesses fail the first year.
And 90% of the rest fail in the next 4 years.
THAT is tough.
You’re excited. You start. A thousand things go wrong. You want to quit a thousand
Most people just quit.
You need a strong enough reason to do it. Then if
WHAT you’re doing doesn’t work, you’ll figure out
some other way. But if you’re at all wishy-washy,
you’re a goner.
First thing we do in coaching is help you figure out your “WHY”.
Your Warm Market Has Ice In Their Veins.
A nailed “WHY” can save your life.
Most people have a huge problem when they decide to improve their situation in
life. That problem is one or more of the people closest to you will NOT want to
see you succeed.
This is a FACT for virtually everyone on this planet, and you are no different.
You can argue with me until you’re blue in the face, but that won’t change anything.
There are people in your life who will be threatened when you make a
passionate push to success. They will complain and criticize and try to
suck the life out of you.
Why? Because THEIR life is a mess and misery truly does love company.
Your best option is to get rid of them. Next best is to have an AMAZING “WHY”,
a 99.9% “WHY”, that will keep you going through rain, sleet, snow, flood, pestilence,
nuclear holocaust, or the criticism of a “loved” one.
So why is it critical you do THIS business? And why is it critical that you succeed?
How To Get “Staying Power”
People always tell their goals.
Fine. You need goals.
But your “WHY” is a big, big, big reason that will keep you going.
Where’s your fire? What do you LOVE? What do you HATE? What is REALLY important
to you? What do you REALLY want? What situation in life do you want to
get out of so it never ever, EVER happens again?
It’s not goals. It’s not money, either.
When I started coaching, people would write their “WHY”… usually money.
They’d need to pay a big hospital bill, or replace a car. Whatever.
But your real “WHY” is never money.
It’s about who YOU really are.
Your driving factor must be WAY more than money.
It’s something you want … or something you want to get away from. Better yet,
BOTH. If your “WHY” is a 70% and you come up against an obstacle that’s a
72%, you’re gone. You’ll drop out, disappear.
But when your “WHY” is a 99.9%, then you’re here to stay and be successful.
Why are you on this planet? In one form or another, you’re here to change lives,
touch lives, and help people. What were you meant to do?
Let’s Play Sherlock Holmes.
A new business is always a risk. People risk to avoid pain, or to achieve pleasure.
Answering these questions may help you find your “WHY”.
What gets you REALLY excited?
How many hours a week do you work?
What do you LOVE about your job?
What do you HATE about your job?
What do you do with your free time?
If you had 2 months vacation and all the money you wanted, what would you
How do you like the people you work with?
What problem scares you to death that more money could solve?
What do you just absolutely HATE about your life that more money could solve?
If you had all the money you needed, what HUGE problem would go away?
If you had all the TIME in the world to do anything you wanted, what would you
Other than money, what are you looking for?
I’ll give you a starting point.
The #1 reason I am in this business, that I’m here on this planet, is because I
LOVE my family. I want to spend more quality time with each of them. People
say, “Michael, that’s nuts. You work full-time in network marketing, you work at
home. You’re already right there.”
Yes. BUT … I treat business as business. When I’m in the office, I’m in the office.
Same as if my office was 20 miles away.
But that lets me have that time I cherish with my wife Linda, my son
Matthew, and my daughter Amanda.
I realize that many husbands and fathers rarely or never get the chance to do
the things they want with their families because of the demands on their time
from simply earning a living. Or, they don’t have the money.
For me, the rewards of MLM have allowed me to build the relationships I
Linda & I talk a LOT. It may be serious business conversation when we’re out to
dinner, or simple, crazy, “laugh-to-tears” talks late at night. We love to drive on
the beach at Daytona, or go snorkeling at Looe Key.
Matthew & I ride motorcycles & go scuba diving. We talk about business & computers,
engines & race cars. Sometimes he even wants advice!
Amanda has a T Top Camero with a “scoop” on the hood. I taught her how to
change her oil & service it. We have long talks in the boat out on the water or
after watching a movie together. I love to hug her at the end of the day.
Life is good when you get to do the things that make life really worthwhile.
Shocking – The Family Member I
Am Driven to Get Even With!
#2, my second “WHY”, is to feel good about myself.
This one’s very personal … just as your “WHY” should be.
My mother was a pessimist. She’d tell me, “You’re no good. You’ll never amount
to anything. You’ll never have a pot to pee in.”
But I programmed my mind to reject what she told me.
My father’s sister, my Aunt Honey, would say, “Michael, I love you. I’m proud of
you. You can do anything you want. Look at that beautiful picture you drew for
At 5 years old, I made a conscious decision that I liked my Aunt’s reality better
than I liked my mother’s reality.
So when my mother started running me down, I’d just step into the theater of
my mind. I’d picture & hear my Aunt Honey saying what a great kid I was. I’d
literally feel her hugging me. I’d stop feeling bad.
And now, to feel good about myself, I need to
be “Aunt Honey.” I MUST help people.
Go Catch Some Cannonballs, Boy!
In WWII, US soldiers took the “dog tags” from the necks of their fallen brothers,
to track who didn’t make it. General George Patton used to calculate how many
dog tags it would take to win a particular battle.
Now … preserving freedom for your children, your family, your neighbors, your
countrymen … THAT is worth the ultimate sacrifice.
But when you start a networking business, they line up to take your dog tag.
Raise your hand if you’re ready to give your life to increase some general’s income.
The generals send YOU to the front line to catch the cannonballs. They hope
you’ll get a few orders before you get blown to smithereens and they have to replace
Now, generals get paid pretty good. But after awhile, if you have any sense of
humanity, all those dead bodies begin to bother you.
That’s why we’ve done mentoring for free for people in ANY network
marketing company for more years than I can remember. We’ve never
charged a dime.
My credentials? Twenty-six years of hard knocks, 26 years of life lessons. Fulltime
in network marketing since 1991.
I have scars all over my body, head to toe, from life experiences in network
I’ve seen it all. Every time a company or distributorship explodes and goes
away, it’s because of greed and ego. Beware greed & ego. Stay away.
The people we attract don’t have a greed & ego problem. They are humble people,
people who want success.
Your Brain Ain’t Worth Dog Meat (No offense, Fido)
There’s a husband and wife team that was with a network marketing company
for 2 years and never sponsored anybody. We’ve been coaching them 7 or 8
months. It’s amazing. They may win the top recruiter award in their company
this year. They’re sponsoring 10 or 12 people a month.
They’ve gone from their heads to their hearts.
You’ll hear me say this a lot. Network marketing is NOT a sales business. It’s
certainly not a thinking business.
It’s a LISTENING business. It’s a TEACHING/MENTORING business. This husband
& wife aren’t selling anything. That’s not just a line. Really, they’re NOT
selling anything. Today, they are reaching their hearts out to others who need
They are mentoring for free.
I exist to mentor & coach you to success. Not MY success. YOURS! Your success
is a beautiful thing to me. If I can help you create success, then my future takes
care of itself.
So my first bit of coaching is, figure out your own “WHY”. Write it down. Test it
mentally. (Will it keep you going in VERY tough times?)
More tips to help you pinpoint your “WHY”:
What does your family mean to you?
What do you want for your own personal growth?
What you want to accomplish in your lifetime?
What scares you to death?
What would it mean to you to help others change their lives?
What really excites you in life?
What REALLY makes you angry about your life?
What would you like to give the people you love most?
What really, really gets you emotional?
Get Serious – Email Me!
It’s critical. You need a strong, written “WHY”, to stick around long enough to be
successful in this business.
Listen to me. Listen to me. Listen to me!!!!!!
Maybe I’m just weird. But to me, there is NOTHING in this business more fun
and emotionally stimulating and satisfying than to poke around the dark recesses
of your psyche, spot old frustrations and vengefulness and crazed hatreds
and lustful desires and unfulfilled dreams and long-time, unachieved goals and
all that other wonderful stuff that makes us who we are …

… and then HARNESS it all to help you achieve what you most want in life!
Look. You’ve been the EFFECT of this stuff long enough. Now it’s time to turn it
around and USE IT!
In fact, a nailed “WHY” is SO powerful, and I have seen it work so BIG so many
times, that I am absolutely unable to stop myself from helping you find exactly
the “WHY” that drives YOU.
WOW! I get REALLY excited when I dig into THIS stuff!
So when you’re happy with your “WHY”, email it to me.
We’ll talk about it.
If I can help you be successful … help you harness your demons and decide to
pay the price … then I’ll feel pretty good about myself.
Some People Wear Me Out!
On the other hand, it wears me out to work with someone who quits. I take it
personally. I wonder, “What can I do so this doesn’t happen?”
The answer I get? “Make SURE they have a “WHY” … and make sure it’s a 99.9
What motivates you to get up off the couch? What gets you to turn the TV off?
What would motivate you to call someone who has asked for information on
So my question is, “How motivated are you?”
Mentoring others gives my life worth and meaning. It drives me. For my
personal “WHY”, I need YOU to know how motivated you are to do
whatever it takes to be successful.
First step is to write down your “WHY.” And if you won’t pay THAT small price, I
want to know now, so I can spend my time with someone who will.”

What is your MLM responsibility
What is your MLM responsibility the most important thing for anybody to do as soon as they sign up for an mlm opportunity is to take action.
Taking action and experiencing early success will build belief and generate income. Don’t waste any time procrastinating about the products. The price. How to do it etc, etc.
Slow down just a little, I am not saying to get out there and fire hose everybody within three feet. I am not saying to go and twist all your friends and families arms until they submit .
What is your MLM responsibility is all about being a professional. Yes you need to approach the whole thing as a professional with great value to offer your clients.
So go and learn some skills on how to be a professi0nal network marketer. Your mentor and up line should be able to point you in the right direction.
Let’s face it if you have such an amazing product why doesn’t it sell itself? Yes the product wont sell itself.
In order for mlm to work you need to sell as many products as you can to the end consumer.
So for you to experience success and make the first sale you need to learn some skills.
Once you have acquired some basic skills. Then you need to get out and use those skills and get better at promoting the product.
Does this make sense!
It’s not about recruiting people! If you have that mentality, then so will the people you sponsor. If everybody just keeps recruiting how are you going to make money?
What are you going to teach your down line?
The skills to recruit others.
All well and good.
You might be saying yes but they all have to buy products so the MLM company will still be making money and so will we.
It’s a good line of thinking. However I ask you what is more difficult to do, sponsor people or promote products?
The other factor against you is statistics. These state that on average people only recruit 2.5 people in their whole mlm marketing career.
I’ll give you a little scenario to get my point across. I am in the weight loss industry. We sell a diet cookie. Now I could overload my new distributor with heaps of information about the pay plan and the special bonus etc. Or I can provide them with the skills to go out and sell those cookies.
Teach them how to communicate effectively with their clients and have them experiencing success and putting money in their pocket.
Ok you may be saying it takes time to develop those skills. This is where my mentor and legendary professional network marketer Tom Big Al Schreiter has it all figured out with his one minute and two minute story that anybody can learn and use.
It goes something like “Iam marketing a product that has helped people lose weight and keep it off.
It tastes great and is high in fibre. Would you know anybody who would benefit from a cookie like that?
This presentation is designed to lower the sales alarm. It comes across as if you are very concerned about helping people to get in shape.
If you have experienced a good result with the product then your own personal testimonial can be included where it says has helped people to lose weight.

What is your mlm responsibility can be answered quite simply by emphasising that you need to learn the skills to promote the products you have. Once you have mastered that then you are ready to teach your team exactly what you know. Of course this now means that some of your very good customers have joined your business.
So keep it simple and have your clients experiencing success from the get go and this will drive the momentum for the whole
The worst that can happen is that you’re making money. The best that can happen is that everybody in your team becomes successful.
Can you pull the trigger on mlm?
Can you pull the trigger on mlm, this sounds like a western cowboy movie!
Can you pull the trigger on mlm what does pulling the trigger have to do with mlm?
Ok well it’s like this, you know how there are these intellectuals who seem to study all of the time to acquire knowledge and die flat broke.
All of that knowledge remains dormant within the persons head and its never put into use.
Well this can be the same in mlm. Some people acquire all of the knowledge about compensation plans, products, fast start bonuses and then never actually recruit anybody,
What is going on here?
Well Michael Dlouhy and Tom Big Al Schreiter have the answers.
When can you pull the trigger on mlm?
It might be something that you were born to do, or it might be something that is as alien as little green men.
It’s all about the generations of programming that has impacted on your subconscious mind.
“Get a job work hard and have a good retirement.” You know the drum it is embedded into your psyche.
Here is the thing until you can dig that stuff out of your system you wont know when you can pull the trigger on mlm?
You need to do a mental cleanse.
This is an opportunity to clear out all of that negative stuff and learn to embrace opportunity and become successful.
It’s an ongoing process and it starts off with being committed to the process and following through with action.
