Forever Living in Scotland

Forever Living have announced a great incentive for Forever Living business owners in Scotland to help them to grow their teams.  These incentives are only applicable if you live in area 180 yourself.  (That’s Forever speak for Scotland!)

But as Forever is such a great international business, even though I don’t live in that area myself, I have two team members who do.  Robert in Glasgow and Fiona in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire both live in the right area, so even though I can’t win the prizes myself I can help and support them to go for the incentive.  The wonderful thing about Forever is you grow your business by helping others.  I don’t think there is anyone I know in this business who has been successful without being helpful and interested in supporting others.

What is the Incentive ?

So for Fiona and Robert, and anyone else in Scotland who works with Forever – and fits the terms shown in the link below*- the incentives involve moving up through the Forever marketing plan and gaining a promotion by building your business, with rewards including a free training day and an evening party, a drinks reception and at the top level an overnight stay too.

The prize differs depending on which levels you are promoted from and to – all you need to do is concentrate on building your business.  Full details can be found on the page linked below *.

So not only will your business grow if you aim for these incentives, which means your bonuses will get bigger, but you will also get to attend a great company training for free which can help you grow your business even more.  It’s a win win situation.

Interested in Joining Forever Living ?

If you are interested in joining Forever Living and you live in Scotland then please get in touch.  I can either put you in touch with my team members in the area, or I can mentor and sponsor you in the same way I have helped Robert and Fiona get started.  We have online support groups, video training and use Skype to mentor team members who want to be successful in Forever.

We also have business information evenings held in Glasgow, Ayrshire and Edinburgh.  If you wish to find out about exactly when and where these meetings are held, which are open to anyone interested in joining us, then just let me know, and I can arrange for you to be met and welcomed at your most local meeting.

If you have already looked into joining Forever Living and would like me to be your sponsor, you can Join Now online by browsing to https://application.foreverknowledge.info/ then you need my details as your sponsor on the form which are  Alison Mead, ID no 440100686316.  Take a look at my previous post about why choosing your sponsor and the team you join is so important in this business.

Who Can Join Forever Living ?

There is no typical person who joins Forever. Robert owns and runs two cafes with his wife and wanted another separate source of income, and Fiona is retired and loves the products and also wanted another independent income to support her in her retirement. I have people of all ages in my team, men and women, young and old, single and attached.  The one thing I have learned in this business is never judge anyone, there are so many reasons why people want to join Forever Living, and I am just here to offer help and guidance and to make your experience with Forever as simple and smooth as possible.  The business you grow will be YOUR business, but you won’t be on your own in growing it.

Clean 9 – Free Foods Updated

The Clean 9 (C9) from Forever Living is an expertly devised 9 day cleansing plan designed to kick start a healthier way of living.  The programme cleanses your body and helps to adjust your mindset, it is a perfect starting point for transforming your diet and fitness habits. You can read more information about the relaunched Forever F.I.T. programme, which the C9 forms the first part of , in my previous post New Forever F.I.T.

The C9 has benefited from the addition of Free Foods in the plan since it’s previous relaunch in 2014, and now the programme has been improved again with more guidance on Free Foods, what to eat and how often you can have them whilst sticking to the plan.

Fruits Veggies and Free Foods

Free foods are foods which are low in calories and provide vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and fibre.  The newly designed booklet which comes with the C9 pack splits your free foods between one serving foods, two serving foods, and unlimited foods which are so low in calories that the serving size is not specified.

free-foods-once-a-day-list

free-foods-twice-a-day-list

free-foods-unlimited

By reaching for these free foods if you feel peckish on the C9, or even if you just want that feeling of eating something on days 1 and 2 of the programme, you are more likely to succeed and stay on the wagon for the full 9 days.

Sticking to the Plan

The secret to a successful C9 is first proper preparation, which is covered in my post 5 ways to prepare for the Clean 9, keeping focused on your goals and reasons for following the programme,  and don’t beat yourself up if you eat food or have a slip up whilst on the C9, just pick yourself up, refocus, and follow the rest of the plan as best you can.  Proper preparation is the key.  If you have a supply of free foods prepared and ready to dip into during your lowest moments you are less likely to

Need Help ?

If you have any questions about the C9 then you should ask for help from the Forever Living Distributor who supplied the products to you. If you have not yet purchased your box then you can buy online from my online shop, accessed by the Shop Now button on my weight management website.  If you wish to be coached whilst following the program then please include your details with your order and I can get in touch to support you, or use the Contact Me  on this website.  I also have hints and tips, 600 calorie recipe ideas and videos about the programme available if you search the weight management category on this website.  Also please note the Be Mindful of your Health section on my previous post for health considerations before purchasing the box and starting the plan,

Is the Forever Living marketplace saturated?

If you are a Facebook addict, or you do a lot of small business networking, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Forever Living market is saturated.  You might know several people who have approached you about the products or the business opportunity at various times in your life.

One thing which puts people off joining is they think the market is saturated and there is no room for them to join the party.

But with Forever Living we sell consumable products which people will return to buy again and again.  Many products are used daily, such as the drinking gels, and if you join the business and look after your customers they will keep coming back for more as the products are so fantastic.  There is also a huge untapped marketplace for our products in the health, weight management and beauty sectors.

Take a look at your local High Street

How many shops sell bottled water?

How many hair salons are there selling the same hair care products?

How many chemists are there all selling the same high street brands of make up and a myriad of other products?

And all these products are available online too, so you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your house to buy them, and yet there are enough customers to keep all these sales channels open.

And look at how many gyms and exercise classes there are springing up all the time as people are spending more and more leisure time and money working on their own fitness and well being.

The things is there is a HUGE market for our products, and there are not enough active distributors to fill this need.  For example in Wales there are less than 400 active distributors and a population of 3.1 million (est). That’s one hell of a gap in the market which you could help fill.

So if you think there is no one to sell to then look again.  There are literally thousands of people living their lives day to day that have never met a Forever Living distributor or have never heard of our products.  They are your untapped market, so join us now and help fill the void.

Want to join us?

If you are interested in joining the business and you are ready to take the next step then get in touch for details.

In the UK you can join easily online at https://application.foreverknowledge.info/ and if you wish to be coached and mentored by me then you need my details on the form which are  Alison Mead, ID no 440100686316.

Something had to change by Frances Woollard

This post is taken from a feature article in the Forever Living magazine in July 2016, following Frances’ promotion in the business in January this year.  It’s in Frances own words :


I did an engineering degree in the eighties and immediately went into the world of IT, working my way up to team leader. I loved my work, but my life completely changed when I had my children.

My children are both the result of IVF treatment, and so I knew that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mum. Life was wonderful, but when my youngest turned two, money started to become an issue and I was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I needed to be able to work from home so I set up my own IT business. I loved the flexibility this business gave me and I would often work late into the night so that I could spend quality time with the children during the day.

Unfortunately my business was hit by the recession, and in 2011 I was divorced after twenty-four years of marriage. My life fell apart. I was on anti-depressants and my health was getting worse. I knew I had to change something but I also knew that I didn’t want to work for anyone else. One day I heard a lady talking about a recent promotion in her Forever business; she looked so happy. We met up and I immediately saw an opportunity which meant I could continue to work from home around my children. I signed up in June 2012.

After signing up my health started to improve and my confidence grew. But after getting to Assistant Manager I stopped believing in myself and my business stopped growing.

About a year ago I realised something had to change; I decided to work on my self-belief and my mindset and that’s when, in January 2016, I achieved Manager.

My life is getting more and more exciting every day, and my daughter (who is now eighteen and who has always believed I could do this) has also joined the business – she is now ready for when she goes to university in September! Forever has given me so much: I think it’s absolutely amazing that I’m able to set up my daughter with her own business at eighteen, and now I also have the freedom to spend time with my mum who is in her eighties.


I am so proud to call Frances a friend as well as my sponsor.  She supports me in my business, and helps all my team too.  We work together to help others build their Forever business.  If you would like to find out more about starting your own Forever Living business then please get in touch via the Contact Me link at the top of this page.

20 Ways to Raise the money to join Forever Living

I get contacted often by people keen to join Forever Living, but they can’t afford the £199.75 for the UK Business Owner Box (or BOB as we affectionately call it) and they want financial help in order to get started. Prices vary depending on which country you are from. See my previous post on How Much Does it Cost to Join Forever Living.

However when you join Forever Living you are starting your own business, and if you don’t make some sacrifices yourself to join, or actually invest your own effort and time into raising the funds for your box you may well not see the value in your new business. Also would you give another person who contacted you out of the blue via the internet £200 just like that?

I am very happy to give my time, expertise and support to help others start their own business, but you need to also commit your time and effort too or your business will never grow. Take a look at my previous post How Not to Grow your Network Marketing Team on more reasons why funding someone to join Forever Living is not a great idea.

So how can you earn enough to buy your BOB if you have no spare money – here are my top 20 tips….

  1. Collect £2 or £1 coins
  2. Ebay your surplus clothes
  3. Cash in the attic – sell those treasures you have forgotten about
  4. Sell your unwanted belongings
  5. Do some overtime
  6. Baby sit
  7. Clean for Someone
  8. Walk dogs
  9. Clean cars
  10. Have a garage or yard sale
  11. Ask your family
  12. Credit Card (but pay it back from your first orders)
  13. Ask 20 people for £10
  14. Ask 10 people for £20
  15. Give up alcohol or smoking
  16. Stop eating out
  17. Take your own coffee instead of buying from Costa/Starbucks
  18. Do someone else’s gardening
  19. Do someone else’s shopping
  20. Do someone else’s ironing

I appreciate that not all these options are available to everyone, but pick one or two from the list or find your own way to save up your pennies, and you will find the £1s will soon mount up.

Also while you are saving then contact me and I can share some fabulous resources and background reading to help you learn more about this fabulous business so when you have saved the money you are ready to get earning straight away.

So what are you waiting for – start saving today – and come and join my team.

 

 

Updating your Who Do You Know List

What is a Who Do You Know List?

If you are new to Network Marketing then one of the first tasks your sponsor will ask you to do is most likely starting a Who Do You Know List.
WDYKL
On this list you should write down everyone you know, regardless of whether you think they might be interested in  your products or business.  You then use this list as your source for approaching people about the products and the business – but if you have been in Network Marketing for a while have you kept your list going adding new names as you think of them or as you meet people in your every day life and talk to them about your business?

My Story

I let my list go for a long while when I wasn’t totally focused on my business as life had got in the way, but last year when I decided to get serious about recruiting and building a team I printed out a load of template pages from our Forever Living First Steps to Manager book and every time I talked to someone about the business or the products I added them to my list with a short note on how I know them, or where they are based.
This is how I can keep track of how many people I have spoken to about my business.  Then I highlight a name in yellow when the person becomes a customer, and in pink when they become a team member.
This acts as a fantastic tool for me to see visually how well I am doing. I now have over 700 names on my list, and I have 21 (1 in 33) team members  of which 10 ( 1 in 70) are active (they place orders most months). I have also built up a database of 150 (1 in 5) customers over the last few years, so I can see how successful my business is by looking at the numbers, to get new customers or build my team I just need to talk to new people.
This means roughly if I want 1 new ACTIVE team member I need to speak to 70 people, and if I want a new customer I need to speak to 5 people. It really helps me to focus as if I’m not recruiting in any month, I can see immediately it’s because I’ve not spoken to enough people.  This isn’t an exact science, some pages on my list have loads of yellow and pink highlights on them, and other pages have none at all, but it’s a great guideline.

Keeping Good Records

If you are treating forever like a business and not a hobby then you need to track your activity and keep these kind of records, as otherwise you have no idea how successful your business is.  In Forever Living we have templates for keeping these lists which come in your First Steps to Manager booklet, as well as profile sheets to keep detailed information on who you have spoken to,  and an Activity Tracker to keep track of what information you have sent to prospects and when you have invited them to a Business Presentation and when they joined.
Activity Tracker
When you start out in Network Marketing you are starting your own business and you are your own boss.  Make sure you keep good records, so you can effectively follow up on inquiries as often you will need to speak to prospects several times over a few years before it is the right time for them to join your business, and without good records that fabulous new team member may well end up joining someone else’s team.

Sound Interesting?

I am currently expanding my team in the UK and beyond.  My last 3 team members who joined are based in Cheshire, London and India and I currently have space for more team members to mentor.  I would particularly like to build a team in South Africa due to the huge growth the business is currently expanding there.

If you are looking to try something new and want more information then take a look at our business brochure then message me via the Contact Me link at the top of this page and I will send you more information.

Rex Maughan – Founder – Chairman of the Board and CEO

Prior to forming Forever Living Products, Rex Maughan was already a successful businessman in the property sector.  Network Marketing caught his attention because of it’s ability to provide the opportunity of financial freedom for people, regardless of education or background. Rex Maughan has ploughed back the profits of this amazing company into an expanding resorts division, including the famous ‘Southfork Ranch‘ of Dallas fame, under-pinning the financial strength of Forever even further.  We are a cash rich debt free company.

Forever in the UK

Forever Living Products began it’s operations in the UK in 1992 and has grown from nothing to being the largest provider of Aloe Vera products in the UK in a very short period of time.  The company head office in the UK is at Longbridge Manor, just outside Warwick.  A beautiful listed building where Forever Business owners are made to feel extremely welcome.

Forever In Ireland

Forever started to trade in Ireland in 1991, and there Rex purchased the Magheramorne estate as the head quarters.  An ideal location to serve an expanding business throughout Ireland.

Investors in People

In April 2007 Forever was presented with the Investors in People aware, for the second time running, with excellent reviews that attributed Forever with a ‘very supportive culture, putting people and their well being at the forefront of everything the organisation stands for’ (Evans, A. 2007 Investors in People Post Recognition Review Report for Forever Living Products (UK) Ltd).

How can I be successful in Forever Living?

Whether you have already joined Forever Living as a business owner, or if you are still considering whether to join, you may be asking yourself ‘How can I be successful with Forever Living?’  I have previously written a post about How Much Can You Earn with Forever Living, but is money what motivates you, or is it something else?

Know why are you considering Forever Living

The first step to success if to know WHY do you want to be in this business?  This is the first thing we cover in your first business planning meeting when you join us.  If you don’t know WHY you are starting this incredible journey then you are likely to stumble early on.  You need to think about your goals in life, in your family, and in your business.

It might be a financial goal, paying your mortgage, having extra money to have some fun with your family, sending you children to private school.  It could be you want a more flexible way of working, a job that isn’t 9 to 5, with lots of unpaid overtime, or maybe you just want more time to spend on your children.  It could be a new car or a foreign holiday. Dream big or it will never happen.

Whatever your reason is, make sure you write your WHY  down, focus on it,  visualise yourself sitting in that convertible car, plan fun things to do with your family and create a vision board with pictures.  That way these dreams become goals, until you write your dreams down they will not feel real.why

Learn from those who have gone before you.

The second step to success is to never stop learning in your business.  When you first join our team, the first thing we will do is schedule in your first planning meeting where we get you started working on your business.  This is just the first instalment of the fantastic training Forever Living have to offer, which is both personally from myself as you team leader, meetings both in person and on-line with our team, and a fantastic array of training materials provided by the company too.

The wonderful thing about this business is you are never alone.  The business has been going for 37 years and those who started with the business early on have worked out what works and what doesn’t, and they have now shared this with all new business owners in the First Steps to Manager Manual, which was launched by Jayne Leach, one of the top UK business owners in 2014.  This manual comes in your business owner box, and if you choose me as your sponsor I’ll guide you through launching your business successfully and hold your hand every step of the way.

So be a sponge, learn from those who have already been through what you are going through, and then you can pass on your knowledge to others as you grow your own team.

Plan to be Successful

The third step to success is plan plan plan.  Once you know why you are doing the business and what your goals are, and you know how to build your business by accessing all the training available, you then need to plan you business every step of the way.  You know the saying, failure to plan is planning to fail.

Break down your goals into bite size chunks, then formulate a plan on how to achieve each smaller goal.  The only way you will fail is if you don’t take that first step. Goals change and move too, so you need to constantly look at how far have you come, have your goals shifted, and what you need to do to keep on track.

Planning

Don’t just Give it a Go!

Make sure when you decide to join Forever Living and buy your business owner box that you are not just ‘giving it a go’ as this is a sure fire way to not be successful.  Get you mindset right.  Plan to be successful.  Train to be successful.  Make being successful one of your goals .

Don’t let those negative voices in your head put you off, and don’t let  those other people in your life take your dreams away from you by not understanding what you are doing. Know why you are doing this business and keep doing the activity.  If you touch your business every day, your goals and dreams will become reality.

Remember, as top business philosopher Jim Rohn says, If you want to do something you’ll find a way.  If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.  Get in touch now about joining my team and we can find a way together to build your Forever Business into the successful business you deserve.
