DO YOU HAVE A MENTOR?

Hello Everyone Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is: Whom do you talk to that is helping your grow?

From helping you grow as a person, to help your business grow? I have found a great mentor in ROB GEHRING. I have known Rob for many years. He and I did business in the past.

When I decide to get serious with my online experience, Rob was there giving me tips and strategies. I would ask a question here and there.

Rob always responded kindly, yet challenged me to greater visions.

I try to do a weekly session with Rob. With over 21 years of full time Affiliate Marketing under his belt, he has valuable insight on what works and what doesn’t.

Rob is always coming up with new ways to help people. I take action and implement them ASAP. I’m beginning to see results which are super exciting.

Today he shared His A/B scripts with me. This is a role-playing scenario that helps you get out of your comfort zone.

One is for our primary business when talking to leads, the other is for those who are not quite sure about what business they want or need. Both help you engage with your leads.

It’s ok to have more than one mentor. I have two. The other is Janet Legere.

I love Janet’s simple approach to life, business, and friendships. Janet goes way beyond the boundaries of helping.

She helps you to think outside the box by pointing out certain details of your questions, then makes you figure out work will work for you while offering her expertise in the Affiliate Marketing Arena.

Both of my mentors have helped me grow. When I first started, I knew nothing about blogging. Now It’s one of my passions.

Learning marketing strategies, list building, correct ways to use viral mailers, recommendations on whom to use for solo ad providers, all the while making you feel that YOU can do it.

Being on the road full time as a driver definitely has its challenges. Some days I’m not able to get on the internet. I can make calls and text when I have time at least to stay in touch with my people.

I’m learning not to make excuses for my lack of time. We all have the same 24 hour period of time. What you do with it will tell in the end.

I had a challenging defining moment from Blain Jones-Co founder of Click Track Profit. He pointed out: your posts average less than 20CTP in earnings each. I would look at ways to earn a bit more with them.

There are plenty of people making 100+ CTP on their posts. Looking at your posts it looks like a lot of them are exaggerated calls to action. These kinds of posts don’t really get engagement or response. It would be more effective to tell your story than selling financial freedom that you have yet to achieve.

This is hard to swallow at first. I thought I was putting real thought to engaging questions for people to answer. I thought I was putting myself into my stories.

Creating new stories takes time and effort. How do you engage people to financial freedom? I have a lot more to learn, so begins a new chapter .

IS YOUR LIFE REALLY YOURS?

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. The question above I have been asking myself for a period of time. This should be an easy question, the more I think about it the more complex it becomes.

I have a driving career, side hustle landscape jobs, then I have putting a lot of work into my AFFILIATE MARKETING.

I have great mentors, they inspire me to reach bigger and bigger goals.

People Working in front of the Computer

For me, my goals are small and steady. Driving takes most of my time. I really have to push myself to put time into my business. It’s way too easy to say I’m tired, don’t have time, no advertising time and the list could go on and on.

I truly enjoy writing Michael The traveling Trucker Blog. Bringing value to people is very important to me.

What is holding you back? I find I really need more people on my LIST. I do have a good start but I need more influx of people. The process from solo ads or co-op shares must be steady and on going.

Social media, traffic exchanges, and viral mailers need to be incorporated daily.

Running a business takes time, money, and effort. We have to step out of our comfort zones. Make those calls, follow up those emails and texts.

If people don’t respond after a period of time, MOVE ON. There is someone who really wants to change their financial circumstances. Work with them.

What are some of your GOALS? How can you improve them? Do you have a daily routine?

Do you make time for learning for self improvement? What books do you read, videos do you watch and people you hang out with?

When you decide to make your life your own, take out all the stops. Don’t let anything stop you. You are your own person. Everything you will ever need is already inside of you, LET IT OUT.

When you don’t know something, PLEASE ask for help. We in this business are here to support and help each other.

A few hints: write out your daily, weekly , monthly and yearly plans of action. Yes these are called GOALS. Take time daily for marking off your plans of action. It will give you a sense of purpose, a warm feeling, and Hey I Got These Done.

Building your list. It’s a numbers game. The more people you have to work with the better. My mentor adds people to her list daily, weekly, and monthly. There is a variety of things done to produce the results she is looking for.

From changing up her Lead Capture page-(update regularly) for variety is the spice of life. Solo ads-Udimi, bought at the beginning of each month. Viral mailers, social media. Co-op shares.

I FOLLOW THE LEADERS,WHY-THEY GET RESULTS.

Social Media, Facebook, Twitter

Being creative is fun, easy, and exciting. The more eyeballs that see your pages the better. Any good business spends money to promote what they want people to buy, but there is a process.

HOW TO PLANT YOUR GARDEN

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is ” How To Planet Your Garden”.

Field, Cereals, Summer, Sun, Sunshine

When contemplating how much return you want from your harvest, you must look at how much seed are you going to plant? The more seed you plant the bigger the HARVEST.

Business is the same way. Planting as many seeds as possible is PARAMOUNT. What is your seed? LCP-Lead Capture Page. I personally use several different pages.

People don’t like seeing the same offer over and over. Be creative in your thinking process. Do tests to see what works best.

What is your offer? ANYONE?—– IT’S YOU. You are YOUR OFFER. If people don’t know you, do you really think they will buy from you? Brand yourself TO BE the go-to person. Let people know you can solve their problems.

Look at OUR leaders. Their success has come from years of building their lists, Watering those lists ( communicating) with people, and guiding them to the best offers. Putting more people on your list is the NUMBER 1 GOAL of any marketer, so be SMART. Add to YOUR list daily.

Top View of Green Field
Make Your Harvest Look Like This!

You water your seeds through viral mailers, Udimi solo ads, word of mouth, business cards, videos, and a host of other tools.

I CAN’T SAY THIS ENOUGH-BUILD YOUR LIST. No list, no money. You are here to make $$$$$$, RIGHT. Listen to your leaders.

Attend weekly webinars. Talk to your leaders, ask questions. Set up a one on one meeting to discuss your strategies . Using every advantage is not only smart but can be very PRODUCTIVE.

PLEASE follow up with your leads. This is the lifeblood of YOUR business, so don’t let one drop slip away.

I want everyone of you to have your dreams come true. Work hard daily, show up, do the work, follow up, advertise and then do it all over tomorrow.

If you need any help, please contact me. I would love to help.

Smile For The Birdie

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. It’s time to smile for the birdie.

Making a video is easy, fun and let’s people know who you are.

Let me say this: Don’t over complicate this process. You can do as many as you like if you are not satisfied with the results.

No one will see them until you publish them. Go ahead now and create your 1st video. After you are done I know you will say to yourself, That wasn’t hard at all.

VIDEO, OH VIDEO, HOW EASY YOU ARE.

HOW TO DRAW STRENGTH FROM WITHIN?

Close your eyes, take a slow deep breath. Hold for 5 seconds. Now release slowly. Take your time to focus.

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. Learning to relax is not as easy as it sounds. We as a culture have way to many distractions.

Finding your quiet place can be challenging. I’m glad I have my BIG RIG. I can close the curtains from the outside world, sit on my bunk and get quiet before the LORD.

There is real POWER in PEACE. Being at peace with yourself and those around you should be a top priority. When you are angry, mad, upset, your thinking takes you on the negative roadway of destruction.

Eye, Creative, Galaxy, Collage, Flowers

Repeat after me: I have confidence, I have conviction, I have courage. Today I take my stand to walk in peace, speak words of peace, and think peaceful things

I will open my tool box of motivation videos, books and pod casts. I can’t afford the negative, the price is too high and all I get is an upset stomach.

Never let fear get a hold of you. You are strong, you are powerful, and you have the UNIVERSE at your command. SPEAK WORDS OF LIFE.

What Does Your Calendar Say?

Hello Everyone. Michael The Traveling Trucker. We all have a calendar. Do you use your calendar to divide your time between specific activities?

It’s all about working smarter not harder, getting more done in less time. Sometimes time is tight and the pressures can be high.

Real-time management is about having a good activities list. Once you have WRITTEN DOWN your activity’s list, put beside each one how much time you will devote to this activity.

Say your Blog post- 30 to 45 minutes, depending what you are writing about.

How much time to do viral mailers, create a new Lead Capture Page, Send out a broad cast to your team… Get the PICTURE, Does this begin to make sense?

As you begin to start your day, you will see where you can fit other activities into your day and allow others to interrupt you because you are flexible.

PLEASE don’t get to side tracked that you lose all sense of time. You can always contact people back after your activities are done.

Don’t get MARRIED to your computer that all you do is have conversations and nothing gets done. Be able to separate between Business and Family. You need to be able to break away.

Leaving Your Mark

Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker. I was thinking about the ways we leave our “MARK” on people around us.

Mention: https://www.pinterest.com/kenziebabby/people-leaving-quotes/

I was complaining to God, can you really hear me? Do you really understand? I got an instant text from a Chaplain Friend of mine from Breezewood, Pa, saying he was praying for me and my family.

Tears rolled down my cheeks. I knew right then and there God was listening and cares for me. Today I offer gratitude, thankfulness, and a heart full of LOVE.

I leave my mark on my sweet bride, by offering funny emojis throughout the day to let her know how special she is in my life. Telling and showing Regina my love for her by acts of service. That’s my love language to her.

I do special things for my two girls. I always want them to be daddy’s girls. Driving to my daughter’s work to put her tag sticker on her car because she forgot and was driving with a expired tag.

People I’m in business with, I leave my blog, share my ideas, and show respect and love for my personal leaders.

I share the best advice with those who come behind me. Things I learn from the leaders-Like follow-up, how to talk to people, how to set up ads, Why we follow the system to the letter.

Show your BIG SMILE every day. Find something to compliment them on. Be the person, others love being around. We all know that one person who people flock to. Become that PERSON.

Have you ever thought about Writing a book, Writing a song, A love poem? Creating a tee shirt, coffee mug, poster…… There are so many ways to leave your mark.

Be a trusted friend. Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Aunt, Uncle. Impart your wisdom into the hearts of people.

PEOPLE LOVE TO BE VALUED. In closing, “HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR MARK”?

Leave Your Finger Print, They Will See it
