How an MLM Consultant Can Help Explode Your Network Marketing Business

Most people get started in their business and think because they have an upline who helps train them, that the MLM training should stop there. I tell you from personal experience that is a big error in judgment. Any one can claim to be a MLM Consultant. I consider a person a MLM Consultant when they suggest to me more effective ways to explode my primary business that will work. Not everything your upline coach or mentor is teaching you my work for you. So it’s up to you to seek out a MLM Consultant that will teach other effective ways to build your business other then what your upline or mentor is teaching. Their are many ways to build a successful network marketing business.

A MLM Consultant must currently be building their own MLM business and have experience and a great record of success. Maybe your upline is teaching you how to make cold calls to a list of leads. Find a MLM Consultant that will teach you other ideas to build your business. For example I teach people how to use the Internet to build their business. I have done the cold call thing and did very well at it. However that was back then. I never felt it was duplicable for most people to do. A MLM Consultant should be teaching you all the different ways to build your network marketing business that he possibly knows. Then you take what he knows and apply it. If it works, Great! If not then start using other ideas the MLM Consultant may be suggesting to you.

When I first got started in my network marketing business, all I ever did was buy leads from lead companies and cold call them. However that was the only activity, I was doing to build my business. Then I found someone that taught me some eye opening ways to explode my network marketing business offline and online. I have been applying those ideas ever since. It has done wonders for my business. I simply became a student of MLM training and now I am considered to be by many, a MLM Consultant. I guess the people that say this are all the people I consulted in the past who have seen great success in their network marketing business as well. I like to think of myself as someone who has paid the price for success. Now I just assist others, so they don’t face the same challenges I did.

If you are looking to become a MLM Consultant also, then I suggest that you be your own leader and learn what you have to, so you can share your knowledge and success with others. Remember, it good to listen to your upline or who ever is training you, but always be a leader and take responsibility for your own network marketing business and learn what works for you and most importantly, what will work for others. The more duplicable, something is the better off you will be. When you find great MLM training or a great MLM Consultant then make sure you make yourself very teachable and coachable and take massive action.

Joint Ventures for Coaches and Consultants

Many Coaches and Consultants experience the “feast or famine, chicken or feathers” ups and downs in income – they’re either out there selling, or they’re delivering. This results in a yo-yo income. They have to deal with busy times and quiet times and increasing competition, and, because they’re selling time, they have limited income earning capacity. Many clients regard the consulting or coaching service as a luxury that can be terminated as soon as cash flows get tight. In addition, the popular perception of coaches and consultants leaves a lot to be desired, which is quite understandable, given the fact that many who use this label are about as valuable as a rotten peach on a busy sidewalk.

How do I know this? I was a consultant for eighteen years. And I’ve specialized in Joint Ventures for small and medium businesses for nineteen years. The solution to increasing your coaching or consulting business as well as income from other sources, while at the same time differentiating yourself from the herd, is Joint Ventures. It’s a great fit and a great complement to any coach or consultant’s business. Use your insight and communication skills to create lucrative JV’s. Have the money and the time to enjoy it, as well as the luxury not to rely on your income from consulting or coaching. This is exactly what I did. I no longer sell my time as a consultant, but this information has worked for me for eighteen years and it will work for you.

First, understand that you do not have a 100% profit margin, which you do have from Joint Ventures. Second, know that you cannot possibly be all things to all men. Third is the hardest – getting rid of that giant ego. I think ego is the enemy of coaches and consultants. Business is not about sales or being well known – it’s about bottom line, after tax PROFIT. You have the ability to cut through the BS and guide and direct people. You can gain their trust. You are a good communicator and you have an understanding of business and human nature. These are very powerful skills and tools in the hands of a Joint Venture Broker.

If my doctor called me last week and informed me that he had a great deal on heart bypasses, I would get worried. Instead, he examines me and points me in the direction of a solution or relief. That’s real business. “Find a need and meet it.” In a room of 20 “Business Networking” people, not everyone wants a coach. But they all have needs, hopes and dreams. If you’re there to make money by helping people, why not simply link these people, be they clients or prospects, with the solution to their needs and get paid for it? When they want a new car, why try to sell them coaching, instead of introducing them to a good realtor and getting paid 20 – 50% of her commission? Easy money, no time, no risk, 100% margin. Think about it.

Business consultants can make a lot more from triangulating JV deals than selling their time. Become a “Toll Gate” – something like Bill Gates. Create solutions that pay you well. Leverage other peoples’ time, resources, money and access. Something like Ari Onassis. Think about that! You can find more information at

Catering Advice – Working with a Catering Consultant

Having worked in the Catering trade for some years, within that time I would have never thought of calling for help from a consultant. Why you ask well its very simple really, I thought they would be very expensive, take up to much of my time, I had loads of good ideas of my own and the main reason would be I had my pride.

However that’s not the case with a catering consultant, it’s certainly not the case with Complete Catering Advice the company I set up over 4 years ago in France. I would visit friends within the trade and help them where I could, friends within the UK and France. I enjoyed helping them and seeing their profits increase was even better, it should be said we had great fun, and that’s just how it should be.

When hiring a Consultant try and get the first meeting FREE, we offer this to all our clients no matter how far away. You should know that they can help you and that you have a good working relationship with the consultant. You should also try and make sure that the person you are meeting will be your consultant, there is no point in meeting and bonding with someone that’s not going to be doing the work with you. Try and find out a little about the company they work for ask them if you can contact past clients to get references. Introduce them to the staff and see how the consultant handles the staff, if they spend time with them then your on to a winner that person cares, if they are more interested in you then that person is selling not caring. Try and remember that the consultant is there to help you make more money and give you more time to do the things you want to do in life, like holidays etc.

Once you’ve had that meeting give it a few days and see if they follow up on the meeting, take note that if it’s the person you had the meeting with. If it is and they were interested with the staff then they care if it’s not that person well you guessed it their selling. You want someone that is going to care about the out come of the contract and will be there on the phone at any time with a helping hand. We always spend a day working within your business, trying to work in most areas.

You should try and remember that the consultant isn’t there solely to make you more money, they are also there to streamline your working practice, setting operations into place that will save you money over time. Try not to think of the pound signs that you are going to make a consultant isn’t a miracle worker, they are a person just like you. However they should have the ability to see an opportunity and market it also see where things can be streamlined.

So it’s not as scary as you think and it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg, over the scale of time. I hope that you can now feel a little more comfortable picking up that phone and getting some answers that will take your business to the next level, your business can never stop growing there is always room for growth.

Wishing you all success.

Should Consultants Cross The Line from Giving Advice To Taking Direct Action

Many times over the last two decades I have grumbled under my breath in the presence of clients:

“Move over! Let me do it for you!”

But I’ve stopped myself from overtly saying it, believing there is an occupational divide between those who advise and those who execute.

My clients might have been struggling to make appointments over the phone, flubbing every other line, testing the patience of listeners, while thinning a valuable database of prospects, and I could have grabbed the phone and glibly gabbed for a few seconds and have secured the meeting they were seeking.

“See, that’s how it’s done!” I could have bellowed. (Isn’t it the Zen folks that claim “direct pointing” is the best way to instruct?)

But then, in truth, I’d be handing them a fish instead of teaching them to fish. And they’d be very likely to ooh and ah and say, “Gee, I could never be as good as you are!” which is not exactly empowering to them.

Migrating from giving advice or running a training program to taking on the duties of a manager is known in some circles as “Blood and Guts Consulting” because it’s not nearly as tidy or painless as mere suggestion-making.

It is especially tempting to do in the following scenario.

Let’s say you have trained everyone to work differently, more productively in handling customer service opportunities, but instead of flipping the switch, indicating it is time for CSR’s to change, to abandon the old ways, managers are timid about enforcing the new protocols.

What then?

One of the key differences between a consultant or a coach and a manager is the latter has the power, as well as the responsibility to say “You MUST do this because it is PART OF YOUR JOB NOW.”

A consultant or coach can’t get away with this because he cannot hire or fire or compensate or otherwise make life easier or harder for his reports, because he has no reports.

Moreover, it is likely that the consultant reports to more than one person, himself, and that he is partly dependent on maintaining the good will of those he has trained and advised because they’ll be filling out evaluation forms, happily giving positive references to future prospective clients of his, or being mysteriously unavailable to respond to their inquiries.

It would seem to be an intractable problem, but there is a solution.

The consultant can sign-on as something more, as an Interim Manager, or as a Project Manager, seek and be given some of the powers I have mentioned above.

Senior management can say: “Gary is here to help us to improve in this area and he’ll have all appropriate authority to set the direction and implement new methods, to hire, fire, evaluate, and even to compensate. We expect and require full cooperation and we’re determined to make this project work. We’re behind it 100%”

Unfortunately, senior managers don’t introduce consultants or training and development programs in this manner. They’re more likely to say: “We’ve hired a consultant to look at how we do things and to make recommendations. Along the way, he’ll be running some classes, and we hope you’ll help to make his time with us productive.”

As you can tell, there’s absolutely no commitment in that approach. It enables senior managers to assume a wait and see posture, while undercutting the consultant’s credibility and clout.

Too often, this inadvertently seals the fate of the consultant’s project, consigning it to less than optimal impacts.

Should you take on more responsibility and make that passage from the somewhat tranquil waters of consulting, training, and coaching to the whitewater thrills and spills of management responsibilities?

It’s worth trying, but prepare yourself for a very different experience, process, and set of satisfactions.

Professional Wedding Consulting Course

Weddings are big businesses today. Most, if not all couples who are planning to wed spend so much money just so that they can have the perfect wedding. They hire not only caterers, wedding planners but also consultants. However, these are not just randomly picked individuals; rather they are fully qualified professional in their respective fields. It would be safe to conclude that couples would rather settle for who has taken the professional wedding consultant course as opposed to one who has not. The reason is simple; couples want quality and professional service.

Taking the professional consulting course is a step in the right direction to all who are interested in the glitzy world of weddings and wedding planning. One gets to do what they absolutely love everyday. The biggest advantage being that the course can be taken conveniently at home and the business can also be run from home. By taking the course, the consultant is able to learn different aspects of the wedding business that they could potentially use to make tonnes of money. Because the wedding business is growing in leaps and bounds it would be a good investment to have the wedding consultant qualifications. This is because wedding consultants will be in high demand in the future.

The professional course may be described as an all inclusive course. Students learn all things that pertain to wedding, from the preparation of the guest lists, planning wedding on different budgets to how to give a really good bridal shower. This information does not in any way go to waste as it may be used by the student herself should she want to have a wedding of her own. All the wedding do’s and don’ts are part of the syllabus.

Quick search on the internet and one comes across many different sites that offer the professional wedding consulting courses. With the advent of the internet it is possible to study on line. However, interested students may also choose the option of studying at home. All one has to do is pay for the study material which is then shipped to the students. This is a big advantage to those women who already have family commitments and find it hard to leave their children behind just so that they may go to school. The courses may be regarded as affordable. More over, discounts are offered to the students who pay the course fees all at once as opposed to in installments. Thus, convenience is not only with regards to payment and the mode of study. Students are also allowed to choose their study schedules. Consequently, it is up to the students to choose whether they would like to study on weekly basis taking breaks or if they prefer taking and finishing the course once and for all.

Starting a business is a daunting task; the good thing about taking the professional consulting course is that it provides crucial insight into what is required. The course helps to answers such questions as whether starting a business is an expensive and difficult affair like most people say it is.

Is Consulting a Good Career Move?

Many people are unsure if consulting is a good move for them to make. Fears around security, being able to sell and market themselves, the need to work alone and be solely responsible for their own financial success. You may have some or all of these concerns.

Let’s start by having a look at the three basic options to make a living.

  • Having a job (working for someone else)
  • Contracting
  • Consulting

Having a job is the traditional “safe” approach. For many people it is still the best approach after all, if you’re not actually that good at what you do then it’s a lot easier to hide in a big company surrounded by other people who all have a part to play in your success (or failure).

If however you are really good at what you do then having a job can be frustrating and limit your freedom, creativity and earning potential.

What are the important areas for you?

Control of time

As an employee or a contractor you will have little control and will, in the most part, have to fit in with the professional working day’. As a consultant you be able to choose when you work..

Control over what you work on

As an employee there will be little choice over what you work on. You could potentially shape this by being selective about the job you accepted but it would still be down to what the company you work for wanted done.

As a contractor you may have slightly more choice as you could specialise in the areas that interest you the most however there would still be a lot of specific direction set by who you contract with.

The need to sell and market yourself

There is very little need to do this (with the exception of the actual job seeking process) if you decided to stay as an employee.

As a contractor you would need to do more of this but most contractors get their work through agencies so it would not be a massive requirement.

If you went the consultant route you will need to do a lot of this, developing strategies to get your business recognised, attract leads and turn them into paying clients.

Potential for higher income

Remaining as an employee offers the least opportunity, Contracting will certainly offer better potential but consulting is far and away the best opportunity to earn big money.


Many people who are employees enjoy a wealth of company benefits (health insurance, company cars etc.) As a contractor or consultant the benefits will be next to none.

Job security

As an employee, particularly if you been employed by the same company for a number of years, you have a degree of job security and, even if your job is cut you may be entitled to redundancy payments. As a contractor or consultant you will have no such security.

Career security

While you have some job security as an employee your career is in the hands of other people. If your employers company merged with another, or if they suffered some other kind of major financial issue, you could find himself with no income. If you have your own consulting business you can arrange that your business was not linked to a single company and therefore you are in more in control over your overall career.

What Work Does a Financial Consultant Do?

Financial consultants are self-employed firms or institutions which provide professional advice on financial planning and financial management. Financial consultants offer analysis and guidance to businesses and individuals in making investment decisions. They add value to an individual or individuals and family, by helping them lay out what their overall needs are and articulate their goals. Financial consultants cannot make the goals up but help the client to understand how their finances can help meet those goals. Financial consultants assess the economic performance of companies and industries for firms and institutions with money to invest.

The help may be required almost always. The advices have proven to be realistic during the years of bad markets that we had during the years 2000-2003. Before 2000, we had amazing markets and there were a lot of people investing over the internet and online and getting short-term profits. People thought that there really wasn’t a need for financial adviser or financial consultant because of how well they could do on their own. However, that period of boom ended in a big bust. The majority of clients, who followed the advices from them had a good sound financial plan, didn’t suffer during the downtrend. But those without the advice and guidance from the financial consultants had strained their finances resulting in a huge loss. While, an appropriate financial planning is a roadmap towards success, they are the one who chart this roadmap.

Why do people avoid financial consultants?

There are three practices that are prevalent, when it comes to taking financial advice of the financial consultants:

o Many people believe that only they can plan their own finances. They think that reading a few books/business magazines/newspapers, browsing through financial websites and watching some business channels are more than enough to make investment decisions.

o Even when an agent is involved, they expect him to pass some portion of the commission he or she earns.

o To hire financial consultant services by paying them fees, just as they would do for a doctor or a lawyer or an accountant etc., is practically unheard of.

It is important to appreciate the fact that the investment world is huge which comprises of shares, mutual funds, bonds, post office schemes, credit cards, home loans, insurance etc. Each investment module has its benefits, drawbacks and typical terms and conditions. It is difficult for an ordinary person to behave extraordinarily in every circumstance. In fact, even an advisor would usually specialize in some specific fields only.

Hence, when a lot of hard-earned money is at stake, it is not advisable to save a few thousands of rupees in advisory fees of financial consultants. Good interpersonal skills and ability for working with numbers are among the most essential qualifications. Intense competition is anticipated for these highly paid positions, despite rapid job growth; those who have earned a professional designation or an MBA are expected to have the best opportunities to earn as a financial consultant.
