Taking Baby Steps Into The Power Lead System

If you have very little start up capital, you can still get going in PLS for small or even no cost.

Getting started in your own home based business can be risky and expensive.

For those wanting to get started in a traditional brick and mortar business, costs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars with no guarantee of success or even of turning a profit for a couple of years.

Online businesses can be cheaper getting into, but still involve some investment of time and money to get going.  Plus there is a learning curve involved which may require some time for the average newbie entrepreneur to get their feet on the ground in their chosen business.  In my case it has usually taken me about a year in any given business enterprise to really get to the point where I felt like I was standing on solid ground.

But, what can one do if they want to get started in a home based business, but do not have a lot of money to use as investment capital?

Well, with the Power Lead System there is a way you can get started as a total newbie for free and spend your time learning the basics and getting good at the basics without shelling out a lot of money in monthly membership fees.  I will explain this process in the steps below.

Step 1.  The Free Lead System.

The first step is using a tool called The Free Lead System.

The Free Lead System is a list building tool given out by affiliates of the Power Lead System.  It is a simple bare bones version of PLS which gives the user the ability to generate leads and build a sales list.  You do not earn any money as a Free Lead System member, but you do gain experience in marketing your business links.  There is some basic training given out with this system, and members are given access to the Power Lead System group on Facebook as well as our weekly Hangouts.  And, as the name implies, it is available free of charge.

With the Free Lead System you will not earn commissions.  But you will collect every other lead that you generate using the system.  The other leads that you generate go to your sponsor.  When you give the Free Lead System to other people, and they start using it free of charge, then you become their sponsor and you will begin to receive every other lead that they generate.  So, if you focus on promoting your link and build up a lot of productive list members, your sales list can begin to grow very nicely.

But, what if you get going in the Free Lead System, start doing well, and want to keep all of your leads (with no pass ups) and have the chance to earn commissions as well?  Well, that’s where step 2 comes in.

Get The Free Lead System Free.

Step 2.  The Lead Lightning System.

When people join the Free Lead System, they are offered an optional upgrade that they can choose to use at any time, or ignore completely.    This upgrade involves the payment of a one time $7 fee to become a member of the Lead Lightning System.

To join you just pay your $7 fee once, and that’s it.  No further membership fees until you are ready to move up to the next level.  So, for the price of a couple of cups of coffee at Starbucks, you are ready to move up to Lead Lightning.

What are the benefits of the Lead Lightning System?

Well, first of all you get to keep all of your leads.  Secondly, when the people that you bring into the Free Lead System start to upgrade to the Lead Lightning System, you earn a $6 commission for every $7 upgrade.  But, you have to be a member of Lead Lightning to collect those commissions.  This is why many people decide to upgrade to Lead Lightning right away when they learn this option is available.  But you can take your time and upgrade when you feel comfortable doing so.

Using the Lead Lightning System you will gain more experience advertising and marketing your link, plus you will be given the opportunity to earn some commissions.  When you start earning enough in commissions, you will know you are ready for the next baby step.

Step 3.  The Power Lead System.

The next low budget step in your journey is the Gold Membership level in the Power Lead System.

The Power Lead System costs $53.97 per month, and comes with many benefits.

For starters you will receive a much higher level of training than before.  You will be given access to the VIP Club in Power Lead System, plus you will get the Endless Free Leads training by Max Steingart.  This training will teach you how to talk to people on social media and gain recruits form Facebook and LinkedIn without getting thrown into Facebook jail.  In addition to this extra level of training you will get other benefits including:

-Done For You Sales Funnels

-Customizable Lead Capture Pages

-Customizable Presentation Pages

-An Autoresponder

-Customizable Email Campaigns

-And More…

Plus, you’ll get complete training in how to use these tools to sell the Power Lead System to others (and earn $20 commissions to boot).  You also get training in how to use the system to promote your primary business and to create sales funnels to market any legal enterprise or products under the sun.  And with the commission plan you not only get paid $20 commissions when you bring in other affiliates (at the gold membership level).  You also get paid a 50% matching bonus when the Gold Members you bring in start making sales of their own.

Of course a person is free to join at any level at any time.  One does not have to go through the baby step format if they want to get going faster and avail themselves of the higher levels of products and training found in the Gold Membership level or higher.  But, for beginners who are unsure of themselves and with little money to get started with, the baby step option is available.  And you can advance as slowly or as rapidly as you are capable of doing.

Take it at your own speed and let your own results guide you along the way.

Book Review: Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss

Chris Voss: Never Split The Difference.  Video by Talks at Google.

What can an FBI Hostage Negotiator teach Entrepreneurs about the fine art of negotiating?

Turns out, an awful lot.  In his book Never Split The Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It, Chris Voss reveals that the insights learned from trial and error by the FBI into the workings of the minds of kidnappers and bad guys of all varieties can also be applied to the average man and woman on the street, or across any negotiating table you will ever sit at.

Chris Voss teaches that the key to successful negotiating is to recognize that the average human being operates, not only at an intellectual level, but at an emotional level.  And when we can tap into the emotional component at play in the minds of those we deal with, we can gain an advantage in any negotiation.  No matter if it’s terrorists in a bank, a client in a business office, or a child not wanting to go to bed at a certain time.  If we can understand the emotional side of the other person and gain empathy and understanding into what drives them, we can tip the balance in our favor.

This is one book that I originally purchased on Amazon as an audio book so I could listen to it during my early morning motivational and study sessions.  But I now see the value in buying this book in physical form as well so I can have a solid reference book to keep for future guidance.

In Never Split The Difference, Chris Voss shares how you can become a more powerful negotiator or sales person in any environment.  No matter if you are dealing with people face to face, over the phone, or via email, the principles he lays out apply.  There is so much for the average Entrepreneur to learn here that I know I will be referring back to this book again and again for a long time to come.

If you want to learn how to improve your skills as a negotiator (and sales is negotiation) be sure to check into this book using my link below.  It’s a powerhouse of information.





Emptiness And The Art of Remaining Teachable.

“In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.  My friend, drop all of your preconceived fixed ideas and be neutral.  Do you know why this cup is so useful?  Because it is empty.”

-Bruce Lee.  From the book Striking Thoughts.

There is a saying I first heard upon getting into recovery from alcoholism some 13 years ago: Always Remain Teachable.

It took me some time to get my head around what it meant to remain teachable, but I finally got it.

In the group of which I was a part it meant having the humility to admit you did not know everything.  To have the grace and the openness to be able to listen with an open mind to the old timers and the sponsors within the group, even when they were telling you truths you did not want to hear.  To be able to listen without immediately passing judgement on what was being said.

Bruce Lee conveyed this same truth in a different way.  “In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.”

There is an old Zen parable that illustrates this point beautifully.  In it a student goes to a Zen master seeking to become his disciple.  But, as the two were sitting together, the student immediately began trying to impress the master by the amount of Zen he already knew.  As the student went on and on talking about his understanding of Zen, the master quietly began pouring the student a cup of tea.  He filled the cup to the brim and then kept right on pouring.  As the tea began to pour out of the cup and onto the table and then onto the student’s lap, the student exclaimed, “Look what you are doing!  My cup is already full!”  To which the master replied, “This cup is like your mind; already full of many things.  Before you can learn anything new from me, you first must empty the cup of your mind.”

“In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup.”

In Network Marketing and the Home Based Business niche, we have a similar problem.  Our minds are already full of old wisdom and half truths that worked in the 9 to 5 world of being a good employee, but which do not work very well when it comes to building and succeeding in a business of our own.  And sometimes this old wisdom and these partial truths that we cling to get in the way of our learning new skills and new ways of living.  This can slow down our progress in learning a new business, or block our way entirely.

What is the solution?

Empty your cup.

Have the grace and humility to admit you do not know it all and to voluntarily empty your cup of the half truths that may have served you well in the past, but only impedes your progress today.  We must develop the sight to see the fullness of our own cups, and be willing to pour out our preconceived notions and prejudices so that we can learn anew.  When we learn we must make sure we bring an empty cup with us to the table.  For, only with an empty cup can we take in new knowledge and new insights that can open our eyes to a whole new way of living.

Are you teachable?

Do you come to the table of home based business with an empty cup?

If so, a whole new world of infinite possibilities awaits.
