The internet is an exciting resource  filled with a seemingly limitless amount of information.  It can help us learn how to do all kinds of things.

The downfall to the internet is the fact that it can be hard to find some of those gems of information.  This is the first of what will be an ongoing series of posts to come out about every other week to help you and your spouse learn more about this amazing business and to help grow personally and professionally.

These posts are also great to share with people on your team as well as people who are interested in learning more about our business.

This article will focus on the personal stories of people in this business, websites about the business, and websites from outside of our business that I really think can benefit those of us in our community.  If you know of any other great resources on the internet contact me or comment below.  We will focus on a wide range of resources and please know that this is not a direct endorsement of any company or plan.  This is simply a list of resources that I think can help you.

 

Personal Stories of Some Successful People In Our Business

In all honesty, I would like to think that I am able to provide you with some valuable content on this site.  Don’t just take my word for it.  Here are some people that I have found whose personal stories can be an inspiration.

Flip Flop CEO – You may have heard of the popular network marketing book The Flip Flop CEO.  Whether or not you have heard of the book, this link will take you to the story of the fabulous mother/daughter team of Janine Finney and Lory Muirhead.  They are down-to-Earth and genuinely want to help raise the status of this business model. http://theflipflopceo.com/about/

Sarah Robbins –  Sarah Robbins is the top income earner in her company and one of the best in the business.  Check out her and her husband as they share their story with us.  She has proclaimed many times that she has quit the business more times than anyone else.  She become a true example of how perseverance pays off.  In full disclosure, she is in the same company as my wife, but you will notice that the video – like SupportYourSpouse.com – is an endorsement of the business, not any particular company.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFhQ-jgXpzE

Terry Petrovick – Personally, I have found Terry to be a great guy with a helpful and caring spirit.  In this video, he talks about the path that lead him to network marketing and about how the business has grown into a family affair.  http://terrypetrovick.com/about-me/

 

Direct Selling and Network Marketing Blogs

Randy Gage –  Randy is an elite network marketer and a guru of success.  This site is full of great advice and his philosophies on success.  It is no secret that I am a fan of his information as I previously linked to his YouTube Channel on a post about videos that helped to inspire my understanding of the business.  Her is his blog – http://www.randygage.com/blog/

Create a Cash Flow Show –  This website has a lot of great advice from Deb Bixler who is an inspiration to many people in this business.  Check out her site and all of the fantastic information that she offers.  This link will take you a particular article on her site about what to do with a less than supportive spouse.  http://www.createacashflowshow.com/attitude-is-everything/not-supportive-spouse.htm

My Business Presence – Brought to you by keynote speaker Karen Clark.  She has a wealth of advice on direct selling and how to leverage social media to grow your business.  She has a couple of other sites on the internet, and I chose this one because she presents great information that can help anyone looking to build their business and online presence.  http://www.mybusinesspresence.com/blog/

Jen Fong Speaks – Jen is renowned social media expert and champion of the business.  She delivers great information about social media and how to use it effectively with passion and conviction.  The information on this site is presented can help give you another great angle on the do’s and don’ts of social media in our business.  http://www.jenfongspeaks.com/

 

Blogs From Outside Network Marketing

This list is included because the world outside of network marketing can help us with self-development and learn other skills that transfer to direct selling.  These blogs have been an inspiration to me, and I hope you are able to benefit from them as well.

The Sales Lion – This site focuses on ways to use the internet to market offline businesses.  This information is great and the author, Marcus Sheridan, has infectious passion and energy that exudes through his writing.  His entrepreneurial spirit definitely comes through in his writing.  http://www.thesaleslion.com/

Expert Enough – Recently, I talked about how we are more experts than we give ourselves credit.  This website focuses on that exact topic and helps us frame that mindset.  Check out this site if you have doubts about your ability to be a resource to others.  http://expertenough.com/

Michael Hyatt – This is the blog of New York Times best selling author and former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Michael Hyatt.  Michael has great advice for leading people with purpose and intention.  He has one of the biggest blogs on leadership and self-development on the internet.  http://michaelhyatt.com/

Smart Passive Income – Don’t let the name full you.  Pat Flynn’s blog about internet marketing is all about taking action to achieve your goals.  His examples are focused towards internet marketing, but his site can benefit network marketers from what he has learned on his path to success.  He is incredibly transparent and has a great way of connecting with his audience with a positive and action oriented tone.  http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/
