Welcome, one and all, to our “brand new” old team training blog!  There is so much going on with SFI it seems to me that we need to be interacting in a different way.  Email is not good enough anymore – not with things changing and growing so quickly.

I hope this will be a place where training and communication happen, and relationships are strengthened. Now that I am really active again, it seems like a good time to retstart this blog, to answer some of the questions I am asked over and over.

Many of us have been together for 5 years or more, some even longer than that! Can you believe it??  And yet, we have never been a “Team” in the strictest sense.  Flung all over the world as we are, it isn’t like we have been able to get together for coffee and talk about SFI strategy.

Until now.

This blog is an attempt at some form of interactivity for our team. If you are reading this, you were either told about it directly, or redirected here from a confirmation email. You can chat with us live, or leave comments on posts.

In the right hand menu you will find a link to our conference room. Be sure to stop by and chat with us live.

SFI has a lot of information available to help you get your business off the ground.  Maybe too much information – so much so, that it is too overwhelming to even get started. Even now, if I have too much on my plate, I can’t eat any of it.

Literally and figuratively.

So another purpose of this blog is to filter through the most important training info you need and tell you how to find it quickly. There will be links to the SFI Affiliate Center from here,  so plan to be logged in there when you are visiting this blog.

You may know that I have been giving gift certificates to anyone who achieves EA with points in their first month. But it turned out giving a gift certificate to people who achieved EA in their first month was too expensive because most people took the gift certificate and then did not continue with the program.

Anyone who gets to BTL in their first month with SFI will get a $30 gift certificate to pay for your EA the following month, but you will have to recruit affiliates, or refer Triple Clicks customers, or somehow come up with enough points the following month to stay at that level.

Example: You get to BTL in January, in your first 30 days.  For February, I will give you a $30 gift certificate to purchase IAHBE, or defray the cost of a 1500-2,000 purchase that will get you back to EA.  Then you will be responsible for figuring out how to get the other 1,000 – 1,500 points you will need to stay at BTL for February.  So this is best for someone who knows you can recruit, or you have a downline in another program that isn’t working for you anymore,  that might get them to join you over here.

Getting to BTL the first month is easy. After that it is a lot of work, but it is worth it.

If you have any suggestions for how to make this better, I am eager to hear them.

Let’s rock and roll!


PS  if you wandered in here by mistake, and don’t have any idea what we are talking about, but would like to see what all the fuss is about, join us at http://howtohaveyour.sixfigureincome.com.

You Attract More of What You Focus On

I subscribe to a newsletter by Marie Forleo, and today’s issue was interesting because she was talking about how to change your “scarcity” mindset. She received a letter from a fan that she read on a video and then came up with a great answer! Before I share the letter, I realize that many of …

Set Your SFI Goals

One of the disadvantages of having been in SFI for a long time is that I no longer think about looking at the Getting Started page, Launchpad or SFI Rules of Success, and I also don’t really know exactly what the current experience is for a brand new affiliate. This month, while updating my goals, …

Finally, Help for Nigerians! And Indians! And Indonesians! And Maybe You!

One of the most frustrating things for me as a sponsor was how difficult it has been for affiliates from Nigeria to participate in SFI. Finally, with the new Local Pay ECA program, there are several ways you can now participate in your own country, in your own currency, without having to bow down to …
