So I’m going to talk about the future of network marketing for 2021 and beyond. These are some ideas that are going to pretty much play out in the next few years.
We’re going to talk about the evolution of network marketing and how to really promote your business in an ethical, but engaging way because so many people are doing it wrong. Then they burn out and then they quit. They just don’t really know how to do it because they’re not really aligning with their message.
So the first thing you want to do is talk about yourself, really, I mean, what you’re going through, there’s gonna be a trend people aren’t putting up with the same bs as in the past, especially since the lockdown and all that craziness in this world, people just don’t have a lot of tolerance for Bs, they’re not going to tolerate spam, they’re not going to tolerate random messages on Facebook. They’re gonna want someone who’s aligned with them, with their message.
That’s the number one tip that you have to get in alignment with your message. So what is your message? That’s the first thing you should look into? Do some soul searching.
Right now my message is I want to lose 30 pounds before my birthday, which is a little more than a month away. I’m gonna be 48 you know I’m getting to that so-called midlife crisis point. And I don’t Want to feel my age.
So my brand is going to evolve, I’m going to start adding a little more health into my videos, and I’m not really going to be talking about products. I’m going to be talking about my life, and that’s what people are craving.
They want transparency and they want people to be more real than ever. Because we feel like we’ve been betrayed. We’ve been lied to by the media, and even the government.
You know, the whole nation is divided, and it says in the Bible that a divided nation cannot stand. And so there’s a lot of turmoil and people are getting nasty and bitter on the internet. They feel like they can just say whatever they want now, and social media accounts are getting just axed out of nowhere, censored.
So there’s a lot of hostility, but there’s a lot of really beautiful people coming out of this turmoil. So I think if you’re a home based business entrepreneur, I would tap into that alignment and unplug.
How are you going to unplug because there is a serious matrix that most of us are asleep to, and I think we have to become heroes for others. But we have to live it though. We can’t just do things for money anymore. We can’t just be the pushy car salesman that gives MLM a bad name because really, MLM has a bad name and the last four or five years in America, MLM has declined.
There’s an anti-MLM movement because of the way that people are marketing their business. So you have to be really careful how you market your business. It’s not about your products being just miraculous, and they can cure diseases and cancers and all of that because the FDA, the FTC, the SEC, they’re all cracking down on those types of claims. They’re cracking down on medical claims. They’re cracking down on income claims. So that should just be wiped out of your repertoire right away.
The only thing you’re safe doing is being real. That’s the bottom line for 2021 and beyond. It’s going to be about authenticity, transparency, and you have to be in the trenches, kicking, getting your butt kicked, like everyone else. You can’t just pretend you’re a teacher or a leader and not do the work. People don’t want a leader anymore. I’m being transparent. I’m just telling people that I’m struggling. You know, I talked about a few videos where I talked about money, health and God, and I only did two of those videos so far. I think I might change the titles.
If I do any more back to network marketing, because I am a network marketer, but I don’t have to do videos about network marketing. I can talk about anything I want, and get totally in alignment. So right now it’s really an exciting time and it’s scary. We don’t really know what’s going on.
These chain of events going on, and media distorting it. We really don’t know what’s going on and there’s a lot of hostility. People that don’t wear a mask don’t like the people that are wearing a mask and vice versa. It’s just ridiculous.
So, you gotta unplug from the matrix and start being you, and what really excites you. You don’t have to start doing content around network marketing, you can just talk about your day.
Then people will eventually start to gather around you. The more real you are, the more people will start to gather around you, and you’ll form a tribe. You can’t do that though if you start creating content with money in mind. Like if you have desperation around money, you’re like, man, I just gotta sell this product. I gotta do weight loss products because I need to make money – people are gonna see right through you. They’re not gonna buy from you.
So, really you gotta start being yourself and not thinking about money and just talking, almost like rambling. I mean, what’s wrong with a little bit of rambling? You know, most of my videos where I’m polished and I have notes, and I do that chronological order of keynotes. People don’t really care about those videos. They care about when I’m sweating and getting my ass kicked in life, and they want to know what’s working for me.
I’m going to tell them what’s working for me, I’m not gonna lie, but I’m not gonna go in creating a video with making money as the main focal point. It’s not even going to be mentioned. I’m not going to say you can make a ton of money with this. At least not in this video and hopefully not in the rest of mine, if I can just talk to you guys on a personal level.
So it’s about being true to yourself and embracing your life just living your life. So, you align with people when you’re being real, you align with people and I don’t really do that with my videos. You know I’m thinking about making money. I’m thinking about how many videos I can shoot.
It’s wild. I feel wild. I feel great. You know, I used to take naps every day. At least that’s what I was doing a lot in the winter, you know, it’s kind of like the hibernation period, and I feel alive now. I feel like a lot of new things are happening, my wife and I were gonna lose a lot of weight. And we’re gonna have fun on my birthday.
We’re gonna travel a little, we’re gonna go to a historic hotel. That’s, I think, from the 1890s. I’m not going to mention the name because I don’t want to be tracked. But it’s going to be exciting because I always kid her and say that we’re the vanderbilts. You know, and I always say we’re wealthy. When we go on drives, and it’s sunny out and we feel good, especially after this lockdown.
I’m like, we’re the Vanderbilts, but some people say they’re evil. So let’s change that to the Kennedys. And I was like, I’ll call you Jackie O. And she’s like, that’s perfect. And she was wearing this really nice striped black and white dress, looking really good and wealthy and we went to the lake and we went swimming.
And I’m down like 10 pounds. And I’m like, life is good, you know, but you gotta unplug from the matrix. The Matrix is based on fear, and it’s based on lack, and the media is in charge of it. So they want you to feel inadequate, they want you to feel fear. There’s plenty to fear about in the world, and I’ve been off of social media more than ever, and I haven’t watched any news for two weeks. I check my Facebook just for messages. I haven’t read the posts. Same with Twitter. And I feel pretty content.
In the Matrix they want you to feel broke and poor, and out of shape and they want you to rely on them. They want you broken. And my prediction is that after this, all these riots, they’re going to, I think they’re gonna go after the food chain. And they’re gonna say, you gotta depend on us even more because the stores don’t have any food. You have to rely on us to feed you.
But the more independent you can get, you know, store up some food, so you’re not so threatened by what they say, store up some food and look into crypto because the dollar supposedly is going away.
I just want to feel light and nimble, not just physically but financially, spiritually, and meditate more. We’ve been doing some more worship at night where we just, you know, my wife goes in the bedroom, I go upstairs to the shrine, we call it the shrine room. I like candles, and I pray, light, some sage.
I pray for the world. Pray for myself, my family. And I just feel wealthier. I feel more abundant when there’s more prayer in my life. And it keeps me tapped into the higher frequencies there’s this huge change, this huge transformation from 3D to the 5D.
There’s a really cool YouTube channel called 3d to 5d, and she talks about all the crap going on in the world. But then she talks about unplugging from it. I’m plugging from the matrix of fear. And it’s pretty easy to do. You just turn off the news and don’t look at your social media.
But it’s also about being still with yourself and praying, and fasting, there’s a lot of stuff you can do to elevate your vibration. But basically, you know, when I read about heaven in the Bible, it basically sounds like in the Bible, when they described Heaven, it sounds like Earth but just way better, like 1000 times better.
And you can literally do that here now. by how you live, watch what you’re eating. Watch what you’re drinking. There is a little heaven on earth that you can create. I’ve created a lot of hell on earth, and I’ve seen pockets of heaven. And I’m sure you have too and you can design your life.
I mean, I am the one who was getting blacked out drunk every day. I was in an abusive relationship. You know, there’s several times that we physically fought and she went to jail one day, very crazy stuff, and I designed my life. That’s, that’s what I was thinking. That’s what I acted upon. I attracted those people in my life.
And when I stopped drinking, they all disappeared. And now I have a beautiful wife. Beautiful car. Nice house. I didn’t even live in a house. I lived in a school bus for 20 years because I was like, No man, I’m an alternative lifestyle guy. I thought living in a bus was cooler than living in a single wide trailer. I was like no single wide trailers, they’re white trash. I live in a bus. I’m an artist.
Then I outgrew the bus. I was like, No, I want to live in a house like a normal man. I want to be respected now. And so I attracted all of those situations. It’s really crazy how quick your life can change just by the way you think.
You know, you can get sucked into the matrix and live in fear and hate your neighbors because they don’t wear masks. And you can believe the government, you know that you shouldn’t be close to people. And all this social distancing crap, you can believe it all you want. And you can think the government is taking care of you. But I’m not buying it. I haven’t worn a mask once and I’m not going to and if they start requiring it, then I won’t visit those stores that require it.
I’m gonna design my life. I’m not saying I’m totally free, I still have to pay taxes like everyone else. So the whole point of this article is to design content that you are in alignment with that you’re excited to do. I’m excited to do this video because I’m just being real.
And you guys haven’t seen me be completely real that often. I’m usually doing how to network marketing videos. And that’s great for some SEO and some traffic but I’m not really getting a tribe by doing those. I’ll get a tribe by talking about all the aspects of my life that excite me, and right now that’s weight loss. It’s feeling alive. It’s connecting to God more connecting with my wife and family.
And you know, the social anxiety – I don’t have it because I’m isolating, but I know that when I get back out in public, I’ll have social anxiety again, so I’ll probably do videos about that, but maybe not, maybe I’m just done being scared of people. You know, what, what’s the big deal?
No one really cares what other people are doing anyways. I think it’s all based on that panic attack I had eight years ago made me question things. You know, it kind of broke me a little and made me double question things like, oh, what if they see that I’m nervous. And then those thoughts spiral out of control and pretty soon I’m close to having another panic attack.
So it’s a dangerous game. Your thoughts are very important. What thoughts you choose, you can do the positive thoughts. You can take the high road or the low road. If you want to go down the low road and visit hell, you can easily do that in this world.
Most people in their 20s do that they’re like, whoo, I’m wild. I’m crazy. I’m gonna be so crazy. And then life slowly kicks their butt. And then in their 40s they’re like, I don’t want to be crazy anymore.
So you choose your battles. There’s always someone bigger than you smarter than you in this world that will shut you down. If you start getting cocky and think you’re bigger. There’s always someone bigger so I wouldn’t even compete. Just be you. align with what You want to talk about and just do it, and eventually you’ll get a tribe.
Then at the very end of the day, you can promote your products and your home business, but you don’t have to talk about them that much. Like I said, stay away from medical claims or income claims. Get off of Facebook, stop spamming people, you know, let people come to you.
It’s all about attraction marketing, you attract them to you by just aligning with who you are, who you want to be. I want to be in my 20s again, I want to be 165 pounds or less, maybe 155. I call that the fighting weight. So I have 30 pounds to go. And I’m going to meditate, I’m going to eat right. I’m going to feel great. And then I’ll share my journey.
Then if you want to see what I’m doing for income, you can click the link under the video. And that’s being real, and it’s being transparent. Check out what I’m doing. But I don’t have to mention the whole video, I didn’t even really talk about network marketing.
That is the new network marketing for 2021 and beyond, because we don’t need any more anti MLM groups formed. And we don’t need MLM to decline in America anymore. So that’s how you do network marketing in 2021. Thanks for watching/reading guys. We’ll talk to you soon.
