Looking for suggestions in Getting Started
1 day ago
I have been thinking the same thing for the last couple of weeks but haven't gotten off the base to run to second yet.
Randy I really like your letters you seem to write better than me. If you don't mind I would like to model mine after yours.
I want to thank everyone for motivating me to do something I should have done 2 weeks agol
Happy Sunday to everyone
New “Round up for Charity” program in SFI News
4 days ago
That is a terrific idea and most of the charities are good selections, I personally have a problem with a couple but that is my problem. I would rather see a charity that does more to treat illnesses. Such as Muscular Dystrophy. I admit I have strong personal feelings about MDA because I have Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy for which there is no cure, in fact, most of the diseases that fall under Muscular Dystrophy have no cures as of yet. My version is very rare and very little is known about it only that it is fatal at some point.
I am in no way degrading any of the charities you have listed I just think there are others that have a higher priority.
That is the end of my soap box for today. Thanks for all the good you do and your great ideas. I think this is a gold star opportunity and applaud you.
Ask questions it is important in Getting Started
5 days ago
That seems to be the normal, Glendora. People join look around for a couple of days and figure it is too much work. I call them something for nothing lookers. Most of them think all they have to do is sign up and money will come pouring in. It just doesn't work that way. An example I use is my daughter opened a beauty shop over a year ago and spent close to $30000.00 to get it started. Over a year later she is just now starting to show a profit and pay down some of her opening expenses. That is what I call a brick and mortar store.
People don't realize it takes time and work to build a business either on line or off line. It doesn't happen with out work.
Keep looking for that right person and you will succeed.
All the best to you, never quit on yourself.
TCredit or Builder bundle in Team Building
6 days ago
Lets decide first what your immediate goal is. If all you are looking for is EA status the 125 pack TCredits is a great way to go. If you are ready to sincerely build your team the builder bundle is the way to go. When I joined I had an Auto ship of 125 TCredits and one share of S-Builder that cost me $58 at the time. I wanted to build my team because that is where the money is, duplication. When they came out with the Builder Bundle that combined receiving new PSA's/CSA's and TCredits. Yes, you get fewer TCredits but the way I look at it for the money I get a good start on the month with TCredits and PSA's and later in the month I will purchase another 125 TCredit that goes toward maintaining my BTL rank.
So in a nut shell what do you plan to accomplish? Then decide what you want and can afford.

Monday in Team Building
7 days ago
Everyone here is spot on. Even on holidays like Easter is a big deal with my family we get together for a big breakfast and sit around and talk until late in the afternoon or evening. As hectic as yesterday was I still managed to get in my daily tasks and order a traffic package. Perseverance is all it takes with this business.
All the best to everyone, Happy Monday!
Easy Tools To Improve Writing in Miscellaneous
16 days ago
Some of you good folks write better English than some Americans can speak it. Believe it or not but I used to make money speaking to groups of people. But when it comes to writing it I mess it up and I've been speaking English since I was born. So this is going to be a big help to me. Thanks for the great post and helpful tool.
Leadership Page Counter in Suggestion Box
22 days ago
I have to agree with you when I first joined, correction came back, I wondered if any of my team was actually looking at what I had put there. So I have a hit tracker service that I use, it basically shortens the URL link and tracks the hits I receive. Now I know after 4 months only one person looked at it. I even put a small blurb there reminding them to read my leadership page is on every welcome email, every e-card, and team mail I send. Makes me wonder...
I have a team of over 400 and only one hit to date. I ran a small contest in January and sent a team email and still no one went out to read it and get details. Well I keep it updated anyway with the hopes that someday someone will read it. :-)
I'm Scared in Miscellaneous
23 days ago
I know exactly how you feel. I joined SFI in 2011 was so scared and confused i didn't do anything. Last November I looked at it again and now I'm convinced I should have taken more time to really study it back then. I too am a BTL with a large team and no leaders as of yet. I figure if I have to get 800 team members to get the ones I need I'll just do that. I am determined to do this.
Keep the faith and we'll both get to diamond yet.
I need to recruit! in Getting Started
about 1 month ago
Welcome to SFI one of the best ways I have found is the S-Builder Coop. Especially if you have no advertising experience with Safelists or Traffic Exhcanges. That will give you new recruits or as we call them PSA's. Contact your sponsor or co-sponsor for help and I'm sure they will point you to the Launch Pad first. The Launch Pad is the little rocket ship on the top right hand corner of you main affiliate home screen.
Take a day or so to go through the Launch Pad and on the Alert Tab you will find recent Forum posts. You can learn a lot from there also.
$1 movement.......for team building in Suggestion Box
about 1 month ago
I applaud you for thinking of ways to motivate your team. I have a problem with it because it is too much of a gift not a help. I believe it teaching a man to fish he can eat each day on his own. Give a man a fish he will be back tomorrow wanting another one. Inspire your team but don't support them. Teach them how to survive on their own. There are more than enough ways in our system to motivate people.
Keep thinking though and I'm sure you will find something that works better.
All the best,
You Don't Have to be a Rocket Scientist -- Opti-build in Team Building

Vernon - you did not ask me. I would have gladly found you the information asap.
I am always very happy to help my PSAs and CSAs.
I too am opting to join the Opti-Build. believe its a great initiative and can help our teams grow stronger and bigger.
I know you would have I finally found it late last night and signed up. According to what I am reading it may be a while before I will ever be a DD. I'm sure there are a bunch of people way ahead of me. Thought I would sign up and hope for the best. I'm glad to have you as my Co-Sponsor, you are always a help.
Has The Butterfly Emerged? in Marketing
about 1 month ago
I feel your frustration. I am a BTL probably far down from my sponsor. In fact so far I have never heard one peep from him in spite of the fact he is near the top of every leader board we have. So the prospects of me becoming DD seem remote to none. With no hopes of change any time soon. So I flounder around by myself with some help from my Co-Sponsor I was able to get this far.
If I can't get help from my sponsor I'll just have to do this by myself. I love both the new programs and hope eventually I will be able to advantage of both. I signed up for the Builder Bundle right away also,
Have a great day,
