The Power of the Pivot In Both Business & In Life – Part 1

The Power of the Pivot In Both Business & In Life – Part 1

It is two months after the initial quarantine across much of the US and I am still hearing from business owners who are waiting on the sidelines to see when it will be time for them to restart their businesses. Although according to the medical experts, it can be at the earliest 12-18 months before there is any normalcy found as it relates to the need to no longer social distance.

If we are fortunate enough globally to have a vaccine, the earliest it could be delivered to the masses in America is estimated at least 12 to 18 months from now. So what is a business owner of a company to do who has completely dried up financially during this corona season?

There is only one thing to do and that is to pivot. What do you mean by that you ask? You must now select another way to create revenue in your current business until this season is over. This does not mean that you will never be able to go back to your primary revenue streams of the past. What it does mean is that you are not going to wait until that moment comes again to start bringing in income. Because right now, we have a new, semi-permanent normal to contend with.

Even during regular times, when things were “normal,” companies were forced to pivot and re-create themselves. The ones that didn’t soon passed away.

Examples of these are Toys “R” Us®, Blockbusters®, Sears® and the list goes on. Why is pivoting, reinventing and adjusting required? Because life is ever-changing. Businesses are ever-changing. Your customer is ever-changing. The world and society are ever-changing. And if you do not change with them, you will soon have nothing to change at all. Because before you know it, your business will be done.

This is not unlike our regular lives. Our lives are constantly changing. We are constantly evolving. And when we do, we have to change the things that are no longer working for us and find the new things that produce the results and breeds the new elements we want to call forth in our lives.
 

monique-manigault-business-strategist
 

Business is the same. We have to find new ways to attract potential clients and customers. We have to find new problems to solve. We have to evolve with technology, society and time. And if we don’t, we will be left on the sidelines while evolution passes us by.

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Became an Affiliate for Total Life Changes One Year Ago (And Why Perhaps You Should Too!) – Part 3

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Became an Affiliate for Total Life Changes One Year Ago (And Why Perhaps You Should Too!) – Part 3

Continued from Part 2.

5. The Direct Sales and Multilevel Marketing Industry Makes Over $35 Billion Annually

I have never been part of a direct sales or network marketing (also known as MLM) business although I have been solicited by many to train their teams. I also happen to have tons of clients and customers who are part of the industry.

I have heard many of the negative comments people make about the industry, but I was not dissuaded by those at all as the comments were always ridiculous and never made any sense to me. The network marketing industry is a multi-billion dollar industry which has produced some very successful companies in America that are household names such as Mary Kay, Avon, Tupperware and many more.

Further, as a serial business owner, attorney and business strategist who has advised thousands of entrepreneurs, exactly what type of business can I start for $50 and literally make thousands? Where exactly does that happen?

The fact of the matter is all businesses require you to work them. If you don’t work them, you will not get results. It is just that simple. What I know for sure from 20 years of being an attorney and a business strategist is that most business owners are not interested enough, hungry enough, dedicated enough nor committed enough to do what is required to create and build a successful business. Period. And that fact has absolutely nothing to do with the network marketing industry. I also understand that all network marketing companies are not equal. So my decision to become an affiliate with TLC is based on the particular elements of TLC and is not specific to other companies.

In TLC, I have watched my client, Demond Coleman, make over $100,000 in 90 days after returning back to TLC at the beginning of this year. (He build his own network marketing company to $6M in the first year and sold it.)

I watched Shameka’s face clear up just weeks after drinking the CBD Detox Tea and after decades of being tormented by others because of the severe skin condition on her face. And within 6 months, I watched her make over $600,000 from selling the products that changed her life, and her battered self-esteem.

I watched Stormy Wellington make over $20M from TLC in under 5 years and this month I’ll see her break $1M a month in income from her TLC business. This was all after a $1500 investment she made which 98% of that investment went to inventory for her to sell.

For the last few years, I had recommended to many people I know, who needed additional money, to join TLC but not one of them did until I finally took the leap!

6. They Sell the Only CBD Detox Tea on the Market with Amazing Results

I watched TLC grow from a $10M to a $100M company with their organic detox tea. But when I saw what happened when they launched the CBD version of that detox tea, I was astonished by what I was witnessing.

CBD has been widely accepted as helping people with chronic pain, anxiety, weight loss, seizures and so many other ailments. Researching the benefits of CBD has been completely mind blowing.

Forbes predicts the CBD industry will be a $22 billion industry by 2022. So it was an opportunity to be a part of the CBD industry without having to do the heavy lifting of creating my own CBD company.

7. Former Affiliates Still Praise the Products

Before becoming an affiliate for TLC, while researching it, one thing I didn’t read were negative comments about the products. Even when people left the company, I didn’t see people speaking poorly about the products. They continued to talk about how wonderful the products were. Now I have my own experience with the products, but at the time I thought that spoke to the power of the products themselves.

In closing, obviously there are no absolutes in life and certainly not in the world of business. But the facts that these products work for the masses is changing people’s health* thereby changing the quality of their life, all while helping to increase people’s bank accounts and allow them to gain more financial freedom tells me all I needed to know to be an affiliate to TLC.

If we can help someone to live better, possibly live longer and help to support their family and themselves in the process, it would have certainly been worth so much more to me than the $100 investment we made to become an affiliate which has already returned thousands back in profit.

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Became an Affiliate for Total Life Changes One Year Ago (And Why Perhaps You Should Too!) – Part 2

Continued from Part 1.

2. The Results from the Products are Simply Unbelievable

For years, I have watched thousands of testimonials about the benefits of TLC‘s products. But absolutely nothing prepared me for the testimonials of those who are nearest and dearest to me. From the removal of chronic pain, losing significant unwanted weight to eliminating the need to take harmful prescription medications, when the testimonials from my immediate family members started to pour in, I literally didn’t even believe the results were real.

After my father told me he was no longer on any medication, I just didn’t believe him. I called him the next week and asked him if he took his medicine that day and he responded to me, “I told you my doctor took me off of all of my medications!” I couldn’t believe it! I had watched hundreds with these types of testimonials before, but I couldn’t wrap my brain around the fact that a simple liquid multivitamin could do something so extraordinary.

My sister lost 22 pounds in 30 days from using the detox tea. My mother had her lowest blood pressure reading ever after having elevated blood pressure for decades and my boyfriend who also had high blood pressure had his lowest blood pressure reading just a few weeks after me gifting him a bottle of Nutraburst on our second date.*

3. I Am a True Business Woman

When it comes down to it, I am a businesswoman. What does that mean? It means that I am constantly looking for opportunities to create profitable businesses. So the opportunity to be able to do so with products that are changing peoples’ lives was just an extraordinary find for me. Changing lives through increased revenues for their IBOs and changing lives with amazing products that promote healing in the body, the foundation of this company just made great business sense to me.
 

monique-manigault-tlc-cbd-tea
 

I have been working with small business owners around the world for decades. After doing the Revenue Revolution Tour for years, much of what I’ve seen is saddening to me.

The reality is that 90% of businesses fail because of the lack of education and capital. Of those that remain, stats show that 80% are unable to break $50,000 a year of gross income. The real number is actually, they don’t break $44,000 a year.

And although we have been very successful on the tour and able to assist in changing these numbers for many of our clients through our educational programs and products, my ailing heart is always conscious of the ones that cannot invest in their businesses and we have to leave behind.

So for many of those businesses, being a TLC IBO allows them to bring in additional revenue as an affiliate to help support the business they are currently building. For years, I told business owners and individuals who needed extra money to join TLC as an affiliate, but no one did it until I finally took the plunge.

4. It Is One of Two of the Easiest Things I’ve Ever Sold

Outside of the clothes I wear, selling TLC’s detox tea has been the easiest thing I’ve ever sold in my life. The truth of the matter is I really don’t sell it at all. I just share what it is with people or lead with their slogan – lose 5 pounds in five days – and before I know it people are asking how they can get it.

The Nutraburst liquid vitamin has the same affect. I just share the results that people have had using it and people want to try it for themselves. Once they do, it’s a game changer and they become a lover of it just like me and the thousands of others that call it their favorite TLC product. Whether I am an affiliate of TLC or not, I will always take Nutraburst everyday for the rest of my life.

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Became an Affiliate for Total Life Changes One Year Ago (And Why Perhaps You Should Too!)

The Top 7 Reasons Why I Became an Affiliate for Total Life Changes One Year Ago (And Why Perhaps You Should Too!)

I originally wrote the bulk of this article for my affiliate health and wellness company, Total Life Changes just under 2 years ago in preparation of a launch promoting their products online. But I didn’t do it at that time. I decided to wait because instinctively I knew it wasn’t the divinely appointed time for me to release it.

In the meantime, I continued to watch, study and research them. I watched people make from $100s to millions of dollars from selling the products. I watched the company grow from a $10M to a $100M business. Most recently, I watched them launch the only CBD Detox Tea on the market and broke not only their own sales records but also create record-breaking income for their Independent Business Owners (IBOs).
 

total-life-changes-cbd-tea
 

A year ago, I started to use their products. I began to get others to use their products and the results of what I heard and saw were completely unbelievable to me. I watched and heard countless testimonials about the products from thousands of people I will never meet, but most importantly from those dearest to me.

From people coming off of harmful daily medications to people losing tons of weight and becoming healthier, to people with extremely imperfect skin finally finding relief by detoxing their system and resulting in clear skin after going to doctors for decades finding no relief and taking medication that never worked.

One thing I know for sure is that when the founder, Jack Fallon started this company 20 years ago with its original product and my favorite, Nutraburst, he couldn’t have possibly known just how profound and literally destined the name of his company, Total Life Changes (TLC) would turn out to be.

Recently, I filmed a national commercial for my favorite TLC products and decided last night that there couldn’t be a more perfect moment to release this article than right now with what’s going on in the world and our new global consciousness of the true importance of our health and of the impact our immune system has in addition to the amazing protection it provides.
 

cbd-tea-with-monique-manigault
 

So I was up all night adding a few more points to this article because of our current global condition. But here are the 7 reasons why I decided to jump in with the only affiliate I have ever promoted online, the health and wellness company, TLC.

1. It Can Support Entrepreneurs and Non-Entrepreneurs with Another Revenue Stream (Especially at this time!)

Now, this first point takes on an extremely different meaning at this moment than it did when I wrote it originally. Currently, our US economy is abruptly grinding to a halt and millions of people are losing, have lost or are about to lose their incomes and businesses. So finding another stream of income is more important now than ever before for millions of people, not just in America but all over the world.

Before editing this article for our current pandemic, I focused on the challenges that many entrepreneurs face to create the revenue stream they need in their businesses during normal times in our world. As a result, one of the things I teach is to create multiple streams of revenue through affiliates. Affiliates allow you to gain revenue in areas outside of your main business using the customer base you have which has helped you to grow your business. So for an entrepreneur, it can be very easy to have TLC as one of those revenue streams.

The wonderful gift though is you don’t have to be an entrepreneur to make money with TLC. All you have to do is join the company which cost $50 and you too can become an affiliate of TLC and start immediately promoting their products online from the comfort and safety of your home and TLC will ship the products to the customer for you and deposit your $20 per product commission into your bank account the next day.*

So you can start making money online (even if you don’t have a current online business) and start creating additional revenue by selling and/or promoting TLC‘s products both online and off just by reaching out to people you know.

*TLC is the only Direct Sales company currently offering daily pay to their IBOs. Depending on the day and time of the order, it may take 2-4 days for the funds to hit your bank account.

The next reasons will be revealed in Part 2.

Are Full Time and Part Time Entrepreneurs Created Equal? I Think Not.

Are Full Time and Part Time Entrepreneurs Created Equal? I Think Not.

All entrepreneurs are not equal. They are not all the same. I was recently thinking about entrepreneurs versus non entrepreneurs. How entrepreneurs think differently, behave differently, dream differently, grind differently. And while I was thinking about that another question crossed my mind.

Are all entrepreneurs the same? Specifically, I thought of the difference between full-time entrepreneurs versus entrepreneurs with a day gig? Are they equal or are they innately different?
 

monique-manigault-entrepreneurship
 

I think they are very different. Both types of entrepreneurs can understand particular experiences. They both understand how to see something other than what currently exists. They understand that by doing something different, you can create something that never existed before that is self sustaining. But what is uniquely different is that the part time entrepreneur will never know or understand the level of the grind and the impact of it if they always remain part-time.

I often say that some of my best, most successful clients are those that lost their jobs. And the reason they are more successful is because they have a different kind of grind. Especially the ones that take care of their families. There is no back up plan. They have to make it work. Their lives and their family’s lives depend on it. And when that occurs, a new something deep down on the inside comes to life in a different way that a part-time entrepreneur really can’t understand at the same level.
 

monique-manigault-entrepreneurship
 

Before you’ll start posting, I’m not suggesting that one is better than the other. They are both entrepreneurs. Both with the opportunity to do and create amazing things, but that full-time, only time, all consumed and absorbed 24/7 entrepreneur is a different type of beast. And until that part-time entrepreneur, becomes a full-time, all-time entrepreneur, they will never really understand the depths of what it truly means to be an all consumed, all in and at risk, full blazing entrepreneur.

A Woman’s Worth

A Woman’s Worth

The worth of a woman was a very interesting topic when I was asked to be a part of the Santita Jackson and Friends Show earlier this week. Santita Jackson is the oldest daughter of civil rights activist, Jesse Jackson. The show was taped at the legendary Rainbow Push Headquarters in Chicago.
 

monique-manigault
 

While I was thinking about what we would discuss during the taping, I started to ponder the title of the program and the value that women have in our society.

In many cases, women are devalued and considered less than in lots of societal terms. We are paid less than men. We are victimized at higher numbers across the board. There are countless examples of all the areas in which there are reduced images and thoughts of us.

But I am so grateful that my personal value is not attached to societal norms nor opinions. My value has been instilled in me by my parents and my dignity is grounded in the essence of who I am. No images on television, lyrics in the latest rap song nor words from any man or woman can change what I know to be the truth about who I am.
 

monique-manigault
 

But what about all those who do not know their value? Those who were not fortunate enough to have two parents to instill such beliefs in them where what they think they are is directly tied to the reduced versions of who they were told they are by society. By the limiting thinking, capacity and shortcomings of others, an abundance of girls and women have been painted false perceptions of themselves.

It is the job of us all to speak life into girls and women at all levels and in all ways in our society.

They need us. We may be the only positive reinforcement that many of them will ever receive.
