Don’t worry about getting older. You still get to do stupid things, only slower.” I live in my own little world… but it’s ok, they know me here.” I don’t like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.
I love how coffee fixes everything. Tired? drink some coffee, headache? drink coffee, cold? drink coffee, someone makes you angry? bust them in the head with the cup!”
Today’s life can be stressful, hair pulling, belly screaming, and downright UGLY. I pray you take the time just to laugh, hug someone, say” I LOVE YOU”.
We all have favorite things to do, reading a book, watching our favorite show, playing with kids and grandkids, taking the dog for a walk. Let us explore the simple, quiet pleasures of life before we are in the ground for good.
What does YOUR minion life look like? What’s your favorite Minions scene?
Minion life for this truck driver is, gear jamming, CB talking, freight hauling, dock backing, traffic battling, GPS watching kind of a day. I really love what I do.

Hello Everyone, This Is Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is “COMMUNITY”. Why is YOUR community so important?” PEOPLE NEED PEOPLE.” Without people what do you have? Emptiness and loneliness that will dry up your bones.
Provide an easy and secure way for your community to participate, online. A dedicated online platform means participants can learn, engage, and give honest feedback when and where it’s convenient for them.
Build trust and community well-being.
Easily share feedback data and project updates with your community to keep them informed and involved in your progress. “Community – meaning for me ‘nurturing human connection’ — is our survival. We, humans, wither outside of the community. It isn’t a luxury, a nice thing; the community is essential to our well being.”
I love being part of a community of ENTREPRENEURS. We have each others backs. We step in to help at a moments notice. I think the TELEGRAPH platform is superior to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a host of others, as someone is almost always online to help, instantly. We share triumphs, mishaps, joys of moving, taking wives on dates, can’t seem to get graphics right, crypto nightmares….. Most people in today’s world rely on a community for practical purposes. The necessities of life rarely come from one’s own hands, but rather from a complicated “web of mutuality,” as Martin Luther King, Jr. once phrased it. While most people need to be part of a community for life’s necessities, most people want to be part of a community because there is something indescribably lovely about being a part of a group of people who share something more substantial than geographical location. . . something they feel passionately about. Something that, when shared, makes individuals seem less lonely. A community is a safe place.
These men and women have embraced me without any thought other than helping me become a success story. They have made me think outside the box, made me choose my words carefully, create a brand that is TOTALLY ME. I will continue to strive to be the best I can be because at the same time they are being the best they can be. WOOT WOOT
Hello Everyone, This Is Michael the Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is “Success Of The Day”. I love the line from Dirty Harry movie. Go ahead and make my day. Michael’s spin–Was that 5 prospects or 6. In all the momentum, I lost count. Do you feel lucky, well do you?
I know it doesn’t take luck. It takes commitment, hard work, and a drive to want to succeed. Mentors are an important part of my journey life today. I ask questions, Find out what’s working and what’s not. Talking with other Entrepreneurs brings out the creative side of me. I want the success that they have achieved. They tell me to go for it, you have nothing to lose and everything to GAIN.
“If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission.”
“If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.” —Jim Rohn
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” —Swami Vivekananda
A few days ago, I came across Napoleon Hill’s quote, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind of man can achieve.”
I believe that a great number of people have read this quote, liked it, and were inspired by it. However, how many really thought about it, acted according to it, and achieved what they conceived in their mind?
If you can think about a certain goal, and if you believe you can achieve it, you will most probably achieve it, provided you add another ingredient to the equation, and that ingredient is a strong desire. A strong desire pushes you forward and gives you the motivation, energy, and persistence to act, do things, and succeed.
Taking the risk of trusting Janet Legere at Contact List Builders, has given me the desire to push myself from my initial introduction to CLB. Janet helps keep me on track with contacting prospects, weekly webinars content and a DONE FOR YOU SYSTEM that WORKS!
Massive Success Funnel -From Rob Gehring, has given me the tools to create $500.00 commissions. His coop is one of the BEST for Leads that turn to HOT prospects. He has created a script to help talk to people when you are not comfortable on the phone. He tells me,” PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.”
For many years, it was believed that the human brain is essentially hardwired—that we are born with a set of cognitive abilities, which are more or less unalterable for the rest of our lives. But the discovery of neuroplasticity—our brain’s ability to selectively transform itself in response to certain experiences—has proven to be one of the biggest paradigm shifts. Simply put, neuroplasticity refers to our brain’s malleability—its ability to respond to certain intrinsic or extrinsic stimuli by reorganizing and building its structure, function and connections .
The fact that our brain doesn’t just absorb—but can also re-wire itself in response to certain repeated activities and experiences—has opened new opportunities for cognitive therapy.
Reading this has given me insight, That the more I progress in my business, my brain is re-wiring itself with precise and accurate information to build a dynasty that will last for years to come.
Doing tasks at Contact List Builders, Traffic Leads 2 Income viral mailer, Click Track Profit, stimulates my brain on a daily basis.

As you can see some tasks you have been doing, have re-wired who you are.

So write that blog, design that web page, master the art of phone calls. Keep you brain stimulated by doing those simple tasks.
Hello Everyone This Is Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s Adventure-Our All Time Favorite FOOD. Whether you believe in God or not, God created food for man, woman, and child. I believe that all we need to be healthy come from plants. I don’t believe we were meant to eat meat, but steak on the grill, YUMMY.
1 1/2 cups spelt or rye ( Bibically spelt was used, Ezekiel 4:9)
1/2 cup barley (hulled baarley)
1/4 lentils (green preferred)
2 Tbs. great northern beans
2 Tbs. red kidney beans
Stir the above ingredients very well. Grind in flour mill.
Measure into Large Bowl:
4 cups luke warm water
1 cup honey
1/2 cup oil-I prefer olive oil
Add to liquids:
freshly milled flour from the above mixture if grains
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. yeast
Stir or knead until well kneaded about 10 minutes. This is a batter type bread and will not form a smooth ball.
Pour dough into greased pans. You may use 2 large loaf pans (10x5x3) or 3 med. loaf pans or 2- 9×13 brownie pans. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until dough is almost to the top of the pan. If it rises to much it will over flow the pan while baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes for loaf pans and 35-40 minutes for brownie pans.
This is for fasting. Divide into 8 equal parts weighting 1/2 pound each. Eat a 1/2 pound cake and drink a quart of water everyday.
Hello Everyone, This Is Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is YOUR LIST. Building your list is where the miracles and magic happen. You begin talking to people, texting, instant messaging, emailing. REMEMBER, no matter how good you set up your website, auto-responder,splash page, WITHOUT PEOPLE, you will not have a business. It’s the people who get excited about YOU. They begin to know you. You build those relationships. They begin to like you and before you know it, they whip out the credit Card and make a purchase. This is real TRUST.
Build Up YOUR Own List from the start. It will potentially become the most valuable resource for your future income. Building your list enables you to not only continue marketing-someone else’s product or service- and follow up with prospects, but it also allows YOU to create your own branded business and products that YOU will market directly to your customers.
Take care of YOUR list. It is a living thing and YOU must give it attention. The people on it have signed up expecting to receive information on making money online.
This is a people helping people business. Everything you learn, teach others, and have them teach others. You should be sending your list usable information, an interesting story, or a personal revelation of some kind every single day.
All of my journeys so far have been learning from leaders, Janet Legere, Rob Gehring, Jon Olson and Blain Jones. Some of my heroes are those who have built their businesses. Michael Camire, Gail Quantock, Simon loi, Kevin Cron, Elizabeta Ramsak, Erik Gustafsson, Eliana Gomes, Kevin Michaud.
I watch and learn from what they do, from making a video, building graphics, helping people understand cryptocurrency. Your list is yours. Make it the best every day. YOUR list will make YOU money in time. It is not a race but a slow and steady process. Built it strong and it will stand the dawn of TIME. Social Media is a great place for organic leads and prospects. Use Your FACEBOOK profile to attract people.
Hello Everyone, This Is Michael The Traveling trucker. Today’s adventure begins with LASER VISION. What do I mean by this? You must be so focused on what you want, you become a guided missile. You reach your target. BULLSEYE.
This is the best business the world has to offer. Taking a group of individuals, with different points of view, different backgrounds, different skills, helping each other.
In My Opinion: I work with Two Leaders in the field of Generating Leads and the ART of Prospecting. Janet Legere from CLB and Rob Gehring TL2Ivm. Each brings over 20 years of marketing experience to their businesses. Each is a coach, leader, gifted speaker, true spirit of ENTREPRENEURSHIP. They enjoy helping others achieve results in building their business. They bring many tools and talents to the table to help anyone with passion and drive to become a success.
Another Business I am a part of is CTP. Jon Olson and Blain Jones.
As we’ve all experienced, the sales process essentially boils down to two things: numbers and time.
And those two things often go hand-in-hand. While we (or our team) are racing to hit quota against that clock. But we can save time and maximize our numbers by investing in the right processes, activities, and skills.
A prospect is a potential customer that has been qualified as fitting certain criteria. Determining if a contact is a sales prospect is the first step in the selling process. Once you’ve determined that the person meets the criteria, they’re a prospect and can move into the next phase of the selling process. Prospects don’t have to have indicated an interest in buying; they just need to meet the mentioned criteria.
How Prospects Work: It is the act of finding leads and turning them into prospects. Leads come from various places; you can buy lists, skim the phone book, search the internet, or talk to people while you’re waiting in line at the store. In most cases, whatever form you use, your goal is to determine if the person could become a prospect. You determine this by qualifying them on one criterion, usually your target market.
Once you’ve determined that the lead could be a prospect, you then work to qualify them under the other criteria, which can be done in various ways, including a phone call, in-person meeting, online form, or email. Your goal is to determine if the lead is a good candidate for what you offer and has the money and ability to buy.
Prospects vs. Leads
Like many industries or occupations, the business sales field has many words unique to its own language and use. Terms will often be used interchangeably, even though they don’t mean the same thing. This is the case with the business sales terms “prospect” and “lead.”
A prospect is often confused as a lead, but there’s a fundamental difference. A lead is an unqualified contact; any potential client or customer you meet that hasn’t been qualified as a prospect is a lead. In the sales process, you gather leads first, qualify them into prospects, and then move them through your sales funnel or process.
Don and Janet Legere from CLB have added a mastery course to the click track profit site. There are 16 tasks you must complete. From signing in, to 1,5,10,25,50 referrals, to earning your 1st $10.00.

Hello Everyone, This Is Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today’s adventure is WORDS. We all use them. If you think about it, we think in pictures from what is being spoken to us. If I say orange, cut in half and wonderful citrus smell. What did you just see?
When we read, we think in pictures. When someone tells us a story of their vacation, we see pictures. In business, we think in pictures.
The words we use are important to get people the right picture. While it is important that we respect everyone we meet in our lives, it is equally important that we perform such deeds that can help us earn respect. Respect is the greatest asset that a person earns through his behavior and activities done for the office, home, or for the community. Our pictures must show respect, value, and well being. We want people to have a good picture of our business. When we use words like-tools, coop, lead capture page, landing page, autoresponder, we want people to have the right picture so they can use them correctly.
Using negative words still gives us pictures. These picture never give us the result we want or need. You’ll never make it, your no good, your a loser, nobody likes you…….. The list goes on for ever.
It is important that parents teach their kids to respect their elders, grandparents, teachers, their fellow friends and everyone living in their surroundings. Only then we will be able to build a positive society. Nowadays, people lose temper on small issues and indulge into altercations which turn out to be violent sometimes. If children are taught to forgive negligible matters and learn to respect the people around, they would grow up to be happier children.
I think you are awesome and you have the talent to build your business. I see you have goals on a white board. I see you put up a video. I see there are 10 steps in taking your business from a to z. I love the pictures of words and how they affect my life. My wife- husband-children-grandkids-grandparents- Do you see you just thought in a picture.
Tony Robbins-picture, Robert Kiyosaki-picture, Babe Ruth-picture, juicy steak on the grill-picture. When I say contact List Builder, some see Don and Janet Legere. TL2Ivm, some see Rob Gehring. CTP– some see Jon Olson and Blain Jones.
COST OF ENTRY–You can get started in network marketing for $300.00 or less which typically includes the cost or your product, product samples, and training materials. What other business can you get started with very little money and a huge income upside?
LEVERAGE–You can leverage yourself with having thousands of people all over the world in your organization that pays you a commission every-time they consume or use the service provided by the network company you are with. “I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people’s efforts than 100% of my own efforts.” John D. Rockefeller.
FLEXIBILITY–You have the flexibility of working wherever you want with people all over the world.
PERSONAL GROWTH–Growing a team and your income in network marketing is all about personal growth. The more you grow as a person the bigger your income becomes. Most all network marketing companies are huge proponents of personal growth and building people up and helping them become better people.
PASSIVE OR RESIDUAL INCOME–Network marking allows you the ability to do something well once and get paid over-and-over again for your efforts providing an income stream that is passive. Know the difference between linear income VS residual income. There is nothing better than making money while you sleep!
The tax benefits of network marketing are huge! It is hard to put a positive spin on taxes but with network marketing you can. If people just understood the tax benefits of network marketing and how they could lower there income taxes more people would consider joining the profession.
HUGE UPSIDE INCOME POTENTIAL
The income potential and upside to networking marketing is huge! There are not many professions where one does not need a college or even a seconardy school education to make a 6 figure income. Will the income happen over night? No! But if you set realistic expectations and go to work you can build a large monthly income! You can make a full-time income with part-time effort!
