This Business Seasons article was first published on my very first blog platform yes it still exists…What a journey its been!
Now, I hope all awesome Mothers in UK had a fantastic Mothering Sunday, and were spoilt divinely by your loved ones. So why is Mum the word them and what obstacles are we talking about. Gimme the opportunity already…
AND what am I talking about though? Business Seasons, yes business has seasons and most Network marketers and bloggers just want the Harvest season. They dont want to know about all the other times that get you to the harvest…
DO YOU KNOW THE SEASON OF BUSINESS YOU ARE RIDING RIGHT NOW?
Well what can I say….It’s spring yay and it looks like we are having a lovely sunny warm one. Doesn’t everyone seem that much nicer when its sunny and warm? They do… here in the land of Queen Eliza!
Now, I am sure you are planning ahead to the summer and the so called network marketing marketing slow season… Many network marketers spew that out every summer. While others are crushing it out the park!
As in life, business, is cyclical. And so as the Visionary, you must journey each season with the confidence that: no matter what season we’re in, it shall soon pass into another. Granted, some seasons may drag out for yonks. But eventually, everything will shift and move forward. If You are Patient and stay focused.
In other words in business seasons, this is “actually spring time too yay.”
This is a time to CREATE stuff. Whittle down the serious and visitors, a time to tighten our belts and keep our eyes on THE WHY i.e. Our Targets.
So we must turn the ground over, plant some beautiful seeds for summer…Or nurture the seeds that you planted in the last 90 days. ASK yourself Am I planting the right seeds right now?
SUMMER is actually the season of Growth. Its when things could get Truly HOT and STICKY. So keep the water flowing, nurture, nurture, nurture. And you just might get through to the Harvest.
Which happens to be Autumn. This is the season of joy, ease, fun, reaping…Its also when You MUST prepare for the Slow Cold, dry and even lean winter season.
So save some of your harvest aka revenue as seed or capital for the planting season which is Spring. Even as you allow for the Rest season which is winter. And you shall always have a harvest.
Winter can feel dry financially as those clients seem to simply dry up and disappear.
And your banker wonders what happened to the sweet flow of cash. Don’t mind all that. Clear out house, prepare to ride out the season.
You want to get yourself The Winning Planner So you can plan out your seasons and Projects for the Seasons of business. To focus your next 90 days on success and actually achieve it. Or a level of it. Talking of planner, did you take a looksee on my guest post on the celebrated Bloggingfromparadise blog about the Planner? Go take a peekaboo right now, we’ll wait.
Its time to turn the land, take the weeds out, turn the soil, put in some manure and let nature do its thing. How well you work in this season will determine your “harvest” in the autumn and summer of business.
What do I mean by this? Well, use this; opportunity to connect, communicate, collaborate and Cross more thresholds. What we call the pillars of the 4-C Formula.
Prospect more, fill your funnel with leads, write a blog, make some videos, and share them with your Facebook audience.

Righty, so what now?
Lets Talk about Business Seasons and How they Affect You.
I am going to show you exactly how to get Organic Laser targeted leads from Facebook. I did share with you how to hack the algorithm, >> Click Here to get that done>>
Handle your friends and followers with professionalism and show them that you genuinely care. Invite those you qualify and determine need to your niche Group and ask them to like your fan page. And guess what, you will get some sales.
Many network marketers have never made a dime in various programs and are desperate to make some money.
I promise you, they do and would follow the right “LEADER” if you get my drift.
So go ahead and share lots of value content. Add value to them, mentor them, engage with them, marinate them (I love that word.)
And at the right time they will come to you without you chasing them or pitching them. This takes time but it works for 6-7 figure earners, why not YOU. Rome wasn’t built in one day was it?? Neither did you grow up overnight so deal with the time issue already!
This is what alphas do…
And guess what else the Alphas and big hitters do, whether they’re planning a trip to the beach, or whatever, many pick up and read a book or two daily.
Allow me to give you a gift of a free e-book <<Click this link>> to take delivery. Its free no obligation, just because I love to read a good book, one that uplifts me and share the joy 🙂 This is your season of sowing and nurturing…Spring!
BUT again here is some surprising info, According to Amazon Kindles Tech statistics, most people never get past the first 2 chapters of a book.
A real shame because books do change lives. You may have great “plans” to read a book, but allow other things to take priority. We are also getting shorter and shorter attention spans, and what do we prefer? Most would rather watch some brain cell killing reality T.V. a few hours daily, and for some, thats all day!
In the online marketing industry, I believe it’s worse because we’re bombarded with ads, via email selling new products daily. Mind you it’s VERY easy to hit that “Buy Now” button.
Sheishhh I have done so a few times, thank God I do have my senses and cancel in time. Many times the claims are ones that excite the heck out of us, many also have the potential to change our lives. And on a few occasions I have been blessed with a gem. No risk taken no gain, Right?
I believe this one could be one such program, a program that could change people’s lives.
Sadly though many people buy a ton of online products, and never actually go through the training, much less apply anything from it.
Thus they loose time and money and sometimes friends and colleagues too! Other times, programs Fail us miserably, either due to greed, OR Just due to lack of New affiliates/distributors, making it hard for the owners to keep it running.
This is definitely business winter Season.
Just like in any Offline business, No customers, no money. Overheads pile up and the math doesn’t add up anymore…
What does one do? Its again a matter of risk management and hopefully picking the right gem.
So, it’s only when you decide to take real, focused action that things start to happen. That your stars will start to align. You can be a buyer…A reader…Or a DOER… or keep going on all kinds of fool’s errands!
But you know what’s NOT a fool’s errand? Getting serious and signing up with a real business or starting an offline business after calculating all the risks, doing your math, creating a strategy & plan.
Once you have a business and a plan, part of that plan should and must be Marketing. And for that we highly recommend A mastermind that will help you grow and prosper. Learn about the kind of mastermind we are talking about here.
Do this, and I promise you, your life will take a strong turn for the better.

You can do it.
