Famous Failures

We all hit setbacks on the journey to success.  Sure it can be frustrating.  Before you throw up your hands and give up on your goals, remember you are not alone.  Some of the most famous and successful people of all time have hit brick walls of failure.  Many of them were at a fork in the road in which they could give up or continue on.

Part of achieving success is not quitting.  It could have been easy for those who eventually became successful to quit when the going got tough.  They persevered when things got tough.  They had a dream and kept on going. [click to continue…]

To help everyone develop a more supportive relationship with their spouse, we have talked about what network marketing is, what to look for in an opportunity, and several subjects relating to being a supportive spouse.

All that is great, but if you are like most people, you probably want to know what the benefits of being in this business are.  There are quite a few, and I am sharing a few of them these based on watching my wife and her team.

If you are a first time visitor, welcome.  If you have been here before, I sincerely hope that you are getting some valuable information that you can use to better the business that you and your spouse are putting together.  That is what is this all about.

Piggy backing on when we talked about how to show support, there are some actionable things that your spouse wants (and truly needs) from you.  Many of these, believe it or not, took me some practice, and truly, I keep practicing and trying to be a better supporter of my wife.

As I have mentioned before, I went from being a passive, not-so-supportive  husband to one that is now fully and publicly supportive of my wife’s network marketing business.  This was not an overnight journey for my opinion to turn around.  There were many factors that helped to lead me to turn around my opinion.

Part of what turned me around was doing research (which I love doing for some nerdy reason).  While doing online research, there were a few videos that stick out in my mind that really helped me better understand what network marketing was all about as well as the mindset of success needed.

These are simply videos with great content!  I am sharing these with you in the hopes that they can help you or your spouse better understand this business. [click to continue…]

The following is a post that was originally made on my wife’s blog on May 11, 2012.  The feedback that we received on this message was great.  This feedback actually helped to spark the idea to spread the message of SupportYourSpouse.com because it became apparent that we can help people with our story and the power of the internet.

Everyone out there needs, wants, and hopes to have help and support from others to achieve their goals.  We assume the ones closest to us will be there to support us.  Sometimes we are blessed to have family and friends who truly care about our goals and want to see us succeed.  Those people in our lives are very important to our success, and we should hold on to those people.

The sad reality is the fact there are people in our lives who either are neutral and apathetic about seeing our success. [click to continue…]

Since 1910, the Direct Sales Association (DSA) has been the organization that represents the direct selling industry. [click to continue…]

One of my favorite songs of all-time is Everybody’s Free to Wear Suncreen by Baz Luhrmann.  It is a rather obscure song, but you may have heard of it even if the name is unfamiliar.  The song is a commencement speech addressed to the class of ’99, which is when I graduated from college.

I know…. I really just dated myself….

The song gives a lot of profound advice, and there is one line that has always stuck with me more than just about any other piece of advice that I have ever been given.  [click to continue…]
