Business Tips from "The Incredibles"
By Shane Clevenger
Today I sat down and watched "The Incredibles" with my two
boys. My mind is never idle, so I thought I would share a
few thoughts, and tips I learned about Network Marketing
from this movie.
1. Mr. Incredible would always relive his old glory days.
He would often say "My best days are behind me". He even
had paper cut outs of articles about him hanging on the
wall, and he would try on his old uniform. I have had
friends like that. We will go over to their house for
Barbecues, and they will spend all night talking about
their old High School Football days, or when they were in
the army. This is what I like to call the "Al Bundy
Syndrome." Spending time reminiscing about your past, and
never believing that you can have those old days back.
Well, as we all know we can have that back with success in
this business. We can build a team, and be a leader and
have the fun and success we had in our Glory Days. That is
one of the great things that this business offers......and
a whole bunch of money to boot.
2. You need to use your strengths- The Different characters
in the movie all have different powers. Dash runs fast,
Elasta-girl can stretch into any shape. They all use their
strengths, but Mr. Incredible doesn't try to use the powers
of one of the other characters. In this business often
times we stray away from what we are good at, and try to be
someone we are not. It is not until you find what you are
good at and mold your style to your strengths, that you
will find massive success.
3. Heart over Technology- The villain in this movie didn't
have any real powers, but had invented tools for him to
fly, and many other various strengths. He was a very cold,
calculated man who didn't have any real friends, and only a
passion for revenge. The Incredibles on the other hand, had
a never ending love for each other that grew stronger as
the movie ended. Now I'm not saying that technology is a
bad thing, lord knows I 'm thankful and far better off for
all the wonderful tools that I use to build this business.
What I'm saying is that we need to use these tools, but
never leave behind the most powerful tool we have...our
heart. It goes back to the old saying "People don't care
how much you know, until they know how much you care". Show
your folks you care about them, their future, and that you
are there to help them achieve their goals and dreams.
4. Keep your priorities straight- In one scene Frozone (One
of the Incredibles Friends) is running out of the house to
help save the world. He is running frantic looking for his
uniform. His wife says "Why do you need your uniform, we
have been planning this dinner for months" Frozone responds
"But honey it is for the greater good" She replies "I'm
your wife...I'm the greater good." Often times we get
caught up in building our business focusing on how we can
help other people, and we loose site of our # 1
priority..our family. Make time to spend with your spouse
and family. If you are running hard, I recommend putting
time in your planner each day to make special moments with
those that matter most.
5. It takes a team- This movie is an excellent example of
what you can accomplish when you have a great team behind
you. One on One they could not defeat their enemy, but as a
team they were able to win. Embrace your team, and use each
others strengths.
6. The battle is never over- At the end of the movie, after
the battle was won..yet another villain made himself known.
This is the same in our lives. Everyday we are faced with a
battle of our minds, or we are faced with a problem. These
problems will never go away, and they are just a part of
life. When we face one Goliath, and win one battle-yet
another one will come up. Remember problems are there to
make us stronger. As entrepreneurs we will win and
overcome, because we can handle and face bigger problems.
Remember with great power comes great responsibility.
Accept the challenges as a learning process, and as a means
to make you strong. As leaders the more Goliath's we slay
the more we can help our team slay their Goliath's.
In closing, go back to #4, and spend time with your kids
watching this movie. It is an excellent way to make those
special moments...

  The Key Ingredients for Internet Success by Shelley Lowery
  The Internet has opened a whole New World of opportunity
  for even the smallest home-based business owner. There are
  countless numbers of new self-made millionaires that
  achieved their newfound success on the Internet. These new
  millionaires are no different from you and I. They started
  their Internet businesses from the ground up, found a niche
  and built their success one day at a time.
  “Can I really make money on the Internet?” The fact of the
  matter is that you really can make money on the Internet
  --a lot of money. You simply must take the necessary steps
  to make it happen. You must have a sincere desire to
  succeed and the attitude for success.
  If you are sincerely passionate about your success, you
  will succeed -- it's that simple.
  The true secret to creating a successful Internet business,
  is pure determination. Most people fail just at the moment
  they are about to succeed. Why? -- Because they give up.
  They lack the true passion that it takes to succeed. As
  long as you keep trying, you'll never fail.
  Below, is list of what I feel are the most important
  ingredients for Internet success:
  Sincere Passion
  In order to be successful, you must be completely
  passionate about your business and your success. If you
  don't have a "sincere" passion, you won't have the
  necessary personal drive that it takes to succeed.
  Your Own Domain (
  Businesses hosted on a free server are not taken seriously
  and are generally considered to be unprofessional. If a
  company doesn't care enough about its business to get its
  own domain name, potential customers may not feel
  comfortable doing business with them. A company with its
  own domain name and a professional looking website will
  have a much higher rate of success when compared with most
  business sites hosted on free servers.
  Professional Website
  Your website is a direct reflection of you and your
  business. Creating a professional website designed to sell
  will take a great deal of time and effort, as there is much
  more to take into consideration than design. You must look
  at a much broader picture and specifically design your
  website to sell.
  Quality Content
  In order to create a steady stream of traffic to your
  website, you must give your visitors a reason to visit and
  continue to visit in the future. You must provide your
  visitors with fresh content on a continual basis.
  Targeted Traffic
  No matter how great your website is, unless you're
  receiving quality, targeted traffic, it will be useless.
  Your website may receive hundreds of visitors each day.
  However, if they aren't interested in the products or
  services you're offering, your web traffic won't mean a
  thing. You must drive a continuous stream of targeted
  traffic to your website.
  Opt-in List (Ezine)
  Having your own publication is an absolute essential part
  of your success. They not only provide you with a direct
  line of communication with potential customers and enable
  you to promote your products or services, but they also
  build credibility.
  Your Own In-Demand Product
  Although marketing affiliate programs can provide you with
  a nice income, true Internet profits come from marketing
  your own in-demand product.
  Killer Sales Copy
  Your words are the entire foundation of your business. Your
  product, website and marketing strategies all depend upon
  your words. You must learn how to write persuasive words
  specifically written for your targeted customer. You must
  feel your customers needs and write your copy with passion,
  excitement and benefit.
  Killer Marketing Strategy
  Developing a successful marketing strategy is an essential
  part of your online success. In order to succeed, you must
  develop and implement a strategic plan that includes all of
  the following:
  • A great product • A website specifically designed to sell
  • A killer marketing strategy
  Each step plays an important role in your overall strategy
  and must be developed to its fullest potential. If even one
  step fails, your chances of success will be minimal.
  Instant Product Delivery (downloadable, instant access,
  Internet users are starving for information, as that is
  what the Internet is all about. They have a sincere desire
  to learn and want the information they desire right now.
  The best products to sell on the Internet are those that
  can be instantly delivered over the Internet.
  Accept Credit Cards
  If you're doing business on the Internet, accepting credit
  cards is an absolute must. You must provide your visitors
  with an easy online ordering process and the ability to pay
  for their order right online.
  As an Internet entrepreneur, it is your personal
  responsibility to ensure that your visitors feel very
  comfortable with you and your website. In order to gain
  your visitors' trust and confidence, you must build your
  Your attitude is the MOST important factor in determining
  your success. You MUST think positively and be willing to
  tackle any obstacle that comes along. The fact is, you CAN
  do whatever you put your mind to. You simply have to
  believe you can and believe in yourself above all else.
