Jason and Ty discuss overcoming the fear of swimming with sharks and stingrays and how fear holds back so many! Stingrays are coming in for their daily feeding because they know where the food is. The same thing applies in our AdvoCare journey as those individuals that are hungry will make the effort to go where the food (knowledge & energy) is.

When it comes to the topic of ‘Showing Up’, it is a mindset. Just as these stingrays are showing up to eat, in our business we need to show up each and every day in order for things to happen! This is how we nearly missed this amazing trip to Bora Bora, but because we were willing to ‘Show Up’ upon losing a passport we salvaged what has been our most amazing destination to date.  

We took the girls to the pumpkin farm today and had such a wonderful time getting some holiday decorations, playing with the animals and enjoying time as a family. Both of us grew up in the Midwest in small towns. We also spent a lot of time on the weekends on farms as both of us had grandparents that were farmers. I cannot tell you how much it meant to have that type of heritage growing-up and the Midwest work-ethic that comes with it. Both of us have so many fond memories of time on the farms and it had [...]

Our English bulldog, Moe Miller, knows exactly where the food is and when he’s hungry he shows up to eat every single time. People are no different. If they really are yearning for something to change in their lives they will show up and start investing time in their business because that is what champions do. If they are hungry enough for that change then they will show up to ‘eat where the food is’. They should not expect people to bring it to them on a regular basis, while that may happen from time to time, they should expect [...]

I am always amazed by the number of people who turn their back on Network Marketing who clearly have no idea what it is or how it relates to the global economy… The fact that at this point in our country that 3 out of every 4 U.S. families are living paycheck to paycheck makes me think that everyone would really be open-minded. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. Most Americans are not getting raises and if they are they are far less than 2% (put that up against 4%+ inflation) so the RIGHT Plan B income opportunity makes good [...]

Here we are enjoying a day at King’s Island during the middle of the work week! We will spend much of our summer here with the girls. They LOVE it! There truly is nothing better than building a life by design and to be able to live life on your terms. It’s a simple business, but sometimes it’s not easy. I hear that saying all the time and it’s definitely true. People can definitely challenge you. Some people want to derail you and deter you from a life of your dreams. They will judge you, mock you, belittle and try [...]

My career in corporate America with Fortune 500 companies lasted 16 years… I guess that I would say that I thought it had peaked when I left a perfectly good medical IT sales job to accept a very promising position with a Fortune 18 company. It was to be a new and exciting position in a brand new division of about 400 experienced sales executives and consultants. Life was moving along well when the rug was pulled out from under us in the spring of 2009, after the market meltdown. Our entire division was dissolved and all of us found [...]

I often question whether we are pursuing our dreams to the extent that we could be and whether or not we are going after them with enough tenacity. It is interesting when I think about it because we talk about changing lives all the time. Our lives, the lives of our children, the lives of our friends, families, and many others. We tend to think about it in terms of the thousands upon thousands of those who will be impacted by the work that we do today, even those throughout several generations. What if for a moment, you decided to [...]

One of my favorite memories of childhood was spending time on my grandparent’s farm in Sidney, Ohio. My brothers and I always looked forward to harvest time because that meant that we got to jump into the combine with grandpa as he plowed through the field. It was a fantastic all-day event and in retrospect, I am sure that grandpa spent a lot longer than just his time with us plowing it. After the day in the combine, he would take us to drop off the corn in the bins and we would spend time jumping in it. Literally, we [...]

Time is an amazing thing… It’s fleeting and the one thing that we cannot get more of which is all the more reason why I would like your attention today. What do you plan to do during retirement? What is the determining factor that is keeping you from retiring today? Money? Security? What would you do with that time if if was an option? It was only a few years ago that I thought I had it all figured out. I had been on quite the upward trajectory in my career. I had landed a job with a Fortune 16 [...]

The other day something really struck me as it pertains to direct sales. How could such an amazing business model have such a poor stigma attached to it? It did not make a lot of sense to me as I did not really have a lot of direct sales experience. All I knew is that entrepreneurs like Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump sure seem to believe in it. Then I learned a few interesting facts: Did you know that every year, 500 new direct sales companies are born? Every single year—500! In 12 months, 85% of them will be out [...]
