Why I Chose Ambit Energy for My Home Business

I have been partnered with Ambit Energy for nearly five years, and I'm getting very close to promoting to the second-highest rank in the company. I build my business on a part-time basis, but over the years I have been asked this question countless times. Why I chose Ambit Energy has always come down to these five main reasons: 1. No Products There are a lot of great companies out there with some terrific products. My wife and I still take products from network marketing companies because we just love the products. But as a business, I just didn't want to mess with products. While I don't mind recommending products to people, as a business, I just don't want to get people to change their habits or add something to their budgets. As an Ambit Energy consultant, I save people money on their energy bill. There is no product inventory to keep. There is no order to place. There are no deliveries to make. And we don't collect any money. The idea of generating an income on a very … [Read more...]

How to Get Your Network Marketing Team Going: Run a Contest

Would you like to earn an all-expenses-paid trip to a place like this? I'll show you how my team just ran a contest to go to this exact place, and how running a contest can help get your team into action. "How do I motivate my team?" "How do I get my team to take action?" "What's the best way to kick my team in the butt?" It might be the most common issue in building a home-based business or network marketing business. Everyone runs into this issue, and if you stick with your business, you will run into it more times than you can count. The best answer to get your team off their butts and building is to lead by example. Show them how it's done. Everyone has their commitment level based on their goals and what they are willing to sacrifice. But your team will almost never do more or build faster than you. If you want them to go to events, you better be there and be the first to get your ticket. If you are looking for a "runner," then go out there and be a runner. But … [Read more...]

Why It’s Critical to Launch Your Home Business

If you pay attention to the pros, you'll notice something they almost all have in common: they launched their home business. They didn't work it here and there when it was convenient. They didn't work it only on the weekends. They didn't treat it like a hobby. They treated it like a real business and launched it. Launching your businesses doesn't have to include working several hours a day. You can launch it part time. Here's why it's critical to launch your home business. Condense Your Activity Launching your business can mean condensing your activities into short periods of time. Here's an example: Let's say you have a contact list of 100 people, and in the beginning you only have one hour a day to devote to your business. When we invite people to take a look at our business presentation, which is a 15-minute video, we only spend about 60 to 90 seconds inviting people. So, in our business, we can make 10 invitations over the phone in roughly 20 minutes, even a little … [Read more...]

Your Expectations Don’t Mean Crap!

How do you react when your business doesn’t turn out like you expect? Do you keep going and push forward? Do you sit in the corner and suck your thumb? Here’s the deal: your expectations of how your home-based business will go don’t mean crap. Now, I’m not talking about goals. You absolutely should set goals for your business. I’m talking about what you expect things to be like. Expectations do not determine results, so you should not base your preserved success or failure on your expectations. More Goals. Fewer Expectations. I’m all for visualizing what you want and planning exactly how you are going to get there. But expectations are different. Let’s say you get started in your business and you’re super-pumped about making money from home. You know you’re going to kill it. You’re so excited and confident that you expect about one in every three people you talk to will either become your customer or join your business. That’s very likely not going to be anywhere close … [Read more...]
