Do you struggle with FOCUS?
I’m a mom, a mom of 2 teenage boys…. does that tell you something? LOL
The answer to the first question is, YES I do.
I totally know if I focus, my business will grow a lot faster. I’ve done it in the past.
BUT…..Unfortunately, it’s so easy to get sidetracked, overwhelmed, and frustrated.
Can you relate?
At any given moment, you could be doing this and that….yeah, instead of writing this blog, I could be finishing up the laundry I started several hours ago, could be watching a movie with my boys….some productive, some not…
You know, if you want to start creating REAL results in your business, you must learn how to focus. (yes!)
Dr. Jim Storhok here on this video will reveal three tips to maintaining your focus, especially when you’re a new online networker.
When you’re new to the online marketing or , a network marketer, or in any business in that matter, FOCUS is key.
So you can watch Dr. Jim’s video above, but here is the list of tips he shares and my take on each:
1. Know Who You’re marketing to.
My coaches and mentors all told me but I just couldn’t decide… I didn’t know if I chose a focus, I would miss out those who might still be interested in…..
I kept learning how-to’s but still afraid to just speak to one target market, but you know what? I realized I (sort of) naturally talking to a person (customer avatar) I wanted to work with anyway! ha! So I decided to write down what my coaches told me before!
If you’re still not sure, you can download your Target Audience/Customer Avatar worksheet and start writing down who you want to work with!
2. Get clear and focused on your offer
This was another big issue for me too, when I first started.
To be honest with you, I like and believe in my network marketing company, but more than that, I love helping people rank up and see the success and move up. But I had an issue, I didn’t know what to do – no focus.
Was I to offer products?
Was I to offer opportunity? or both?
My coaches have told me time and time again, “Don’t show what company you’re with Use Attraction Marketing!”
What? Attraction marketing? Like Dr. Jim says in the video, I just wanted to learn how to market my network mareting products, services and opportunity.”
A lot of network marketers are searching for ways to learn how to build their business online. – that was me!
And Attraction marketing was a brand-new concept to me and goodness, am I a slow learner? It took me for a while to ‘get’ it!!
In the video, Dr. Jim shares how he appreciated the “truth bomb” he received from his mentor Fernie. Like him, I realize what I needed to learn was the skillsets of marketing.
I also appreciate the truth my current coach has said to me,
“Get over yourself and help others!”
So I have decided to focus on helping people by offering Attraction Marketing Formula and share what I’ve learned about it by walking you through it.
Dr. Jim’s FOCUS acronym is….
He shares an example of package offer….. which is what I do!
I do believe ultimately when we want to build a business, we are building relationships. So it’s important to me to get to know you.
3. Develop a simple DMO
Do you know what DMO is? (of course, if you watched the video, you’d know…)
A DMO, is a Daily Method of Operation. I didn’t know that, it must be a jargon of this industry? I don’t know. lol
Anyway, do you have a DMO?
What do you do every single day? When you get to your desk, do you already know what to tackle first, second and so on…?
I tell you what, like I said, being a mom, having a part time job, and volunteering, my daily life gets pretty hectic. Dr. Jim gives great suggestions:
Plan your day out ahead of time.
block 30 to 45 minutes and put your phone on airplane mode, cut the distractions out, and just hit it hard for that block of time and be focused. Then, take 10 or 15 minutes and chill. (I actually use Focus Keeper and use pomadoro method of 25 min. increments, then take 5 min off in between unless I’m super focused and on a roll)
What’s Important Next?
Be clear on what your next priority is. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as that’s making you move forward toward your goal.
