Hi everyone!

6 steps

The "BELIEVE" conference is coming up soon, and I'm thrilled you'll be joining us!

We've got several hundred men and women coming together on October 18, 19 and 20th to share "best practices" and support each other in making more money and a bigger difference through your network marketing / direct sales business! This event is all about "women helping women" at its best. I know you'll be totally inspired by our special guests, and all the fabulous training sessions we've put together for you.

The entire event is built around a simple "6 step System" that top women are already using to build a 6 and 7-figure business (and set it up so they have more time for family, fun and doing what they love).

So instead of feeling overwhelmed with too many ideas and info, you'll leave this event with a simple plan you can use, week after week, to grow your income and time.

To see exactly what you'll be learning, check out the schedule of sessions outlined below!

I look forward to you being part of this - we're definitely "making history" together, and I know you'll leave this experience feeling more excited than ever about building your biz!

All the best!

Step #2

Self-Leadership and the "Inner Game" of Business

Session #3 – The Art of Vision and Self-Motivation
Richard Brooke
Friday, October 18th - 9:00 PM PT (12:00 AM ET)

Whether we know it or not, our life revolves around our personal vision. It defines who we are, what we do, and what we think we're capable of. It determines our success, our goals, and even our happiness.

Successful women have a clear, compelling vision for their life and biz that keeps them inspired even when dealing with the most difficult challenges. Defining your own "vision" can make the difference between struggle and success, feeling constantly upset or experiencing a deep sense of gratitude.

During this workshop session, Richard will take you through a series of thought-provoking exercises that will help you discover what truly drives you (it's probably NOT what you think!). Once you're crystal clear on the values and purpose that define your life, you have an "inner compass" that can get you where you want to go (with less effort and struggle).

What you learn in this session will help you tap into your greatest natural gifts, and infuse your business with a deep sense of purpose. You'll find you don't need to "push yourself" to accomplish your goals, but that you are naturally pulled towards them in a way that is exciting and effortless.

Session #4 – How to Build an "Activity Muscle"
That Makes it Easy to Take Action In Your Biz
(Even When Dealing with Rejection and Challenges)
Sonia Stringer
Saturday, October 19th - 8:30 AM PT (11:30 AM ET)

Sonia Stringer

Most women know "what to do" to build a successful biz. The real question — are you DOING what you know you need to do? The foundational key to success in network marketing/direct sales is consistent activity — but this can be a struggle when you're dealing with a lot of rejection, setbacks and disappointments. It's not long before your phone feels like a hundred pounds... and re-arranging your sock drawer feels like a good use of your time.

That's about to change, for good. In this session, you'll learn a simple process to "condition" yourself to actually LOVE picking up the phone, approaching strangers and taking action in your business. (Yes, it's truly possible). Instead of trying to "motivate yourself" or struggle through with will power — you'll be able to coach yourself so that taking action in your biz every day is as easy as tying your shoes.

After the session, you'll have the skills to move yourself and your team into consistent activity, and create a wave of momentum that will show up in your check for months to come.

Richard Brooke
Saturday, October 19th - 2:00 PM PT (5:00 PM ET)

Richard Brooke

Finding and recruiting the "right people" can make or break your business success. And there's nothing so frustrating as knowing you have a biz that can change people's lives, but they just don't "get it" — or write it off as a hobby, scam or "one of those pyramid things".

Can YOU share your opportunity in a way that intrigues even the big skeptics? You will if you read and use the "4 Year Career". Richard Brooke has authored one of the most informative and persuasive books ever written on network marketing. In his "straight to the point" NO BS style, he shares a compelling and accurate view of just how powerful the network marketing model is, in a way that makes it easy for ANYONE to see value.

Romi's also very skilled at "lifestyle prospecting" and she'll share her secrets to meeting great leads in your everyday activities (and what to say so people want to hear more about your business).

Sonia Stringer

No doubt — technology (especially the internet and social media tools) are transforming the network marketing/direct sales profession every single day. It has never been easier to connect with new leads, find customers and even recruit leaders, all from the comfort of your home office.

Kimmy Everett and Katie Fredricksen

In the age of technology, it's easy to be seduced by all the ways we can find new leads on the internet (and miss the golden opportunities that lie within our own personal networks).

Doing business with friends, family or personal contacts can take a special touch, but it's also where the greatest personal (and financial rewards) can be.

Sonia Stringer with

Sunday, October 20th - 8:30 AM PT (11:30 AM ET)

Sonia with Pamela and Kevin Barnum, Romi and John Neustadt

For women, business is a personal journey. We invest a lot of ourselves (and our hearts) into what we do every day, and there's nothing more important than feeling supported and encouraged by those we love most.

Unfortunately, many of us don't have the kind of support from home we need. Perhaps your spouse or partner doesn't really "get" your biz – OR they're constantly complaining about the time and money you're investing. Building a biz is hard enough, but when you're feeling pressured by those you love, it can feel impossible.

In this session, you'll hear from two couples who totally get it! They'll share their personal stories — what brought them into network marketing, how they overcame initial skepticism and what inspired them to join forces and collaborate together. They'll also share key strategies couples need if they want to work together effectively, including how to identify and honor each other's strengths, and how to create agreements so everyone wins.

You'll leave this session feeling empowered, and with new skills that can help you get more support from your own partner (and possibly even inspire them to join you in building your own biz).

If you're like many women, you started your own business because you wanted more - more money, more time for yourself or those you love, and more freedom in how you live your life day to day.

And like most women, you may also see your business as a way to contribute — a vehicle to not only change YOUR life, but to touch and transform the lives of the many people on your team (and even those who use your products each day).

What if there is an even bigger opportunity at hand — a way to use your business to support a "global shift" that is changing the world in remarkable ways?

In this session, you'll discover how women are using their financial and political influence in inspiring ways – and how you and your biz are part of a movement that is gaining momentum and shaking up the planet!

Margie Aliprandi

Even when women have access to the tools and strategies they need to build a successful business, they can still get stuck. Why?

Kimmy Everett

Not long ago, Kimmy Everett was a single mom struggling to pay her rent. Although she loved her job as fundraiser for a popular school in Hawaii, she didn't love the hours (over 60 a week) or the low pay.

After being introduced to a product that made a huge difference in her health, Kimmy became curious about the company behind it. If the product worked this well, could the business opportunity be as good?

She decided to find out, and within 90 days of working her business "part time" she reached the top level of leadership in her company. Her "secret to success" lay in building her business simply, quickly, and most importantly – coming from the heart with everyone she met. Kimmy's authentic approach to business attracted people who previously "weren't that interested in network marketing" into her team, and helped her create one of the fastest growing organizations in the field.

In just under three years, Kimmy is now the #1 income earner in her company, and has developed a team of tens of thousands of distributors spanning 9 different countries. The income she now makes in a year would have taken 20 years to earn at her previous job! More importantly, Kimmy loves the flexibility her new business has brought to her life, giving her the opportunity to travel with her daughter and introduce her to life-changing experiences.

Kimmy has earned a profession-wide reputation of being an authentic, caring leader and is is especially skilled at building a "team culture" that is purpose-driven and keeps people inspired. Kimmy is especially motivated to help other women achieve the financial and lifestyle success she's been able to enjoy, and is a huge advocate for changing the world by empowering more women through business.

Katie Fredricksen

Katie Fredricksen comes from a solid background in corporate training and personal development. For many years she worked as an executive coach before being introduced to network marketing through a family member in 2009.

She quickly recognized the opportunity to not only create a great income for herself and her family, but to also use her skills and strengths to help others get healthy and earn residual income as well.

Katie quickly rose to the very top position of her company (she is one of only 2-star Diamonds) and racked up many accolades in the process (including her company's prestigious "Momentum Award", the "Vision Award" and "Mentor Award").

One of Katie's greatest strengths is her ability to build a strong team culture that supports a high level of commitment and real sense of community. (Her current team is over 24,000 strong and it growing quickly in 14 countries internationally).

Katie has a track record of raising successful leaders and helping them to build vibrant and sustainable businesses of their own (of her company's 32 top leaders, all but 5 are in her downline).

Katie is a graduate of Stanford University and is a proud mom of one son Austin, who is now starting his third year at Stanford. She would not be where she is in her career without the love and support of her husband, Cully, who makes her laugh most every day.

Romi Neustadt

Romi Neustadt worked as a successful lawyer and award-winning PR consultant before joining her network marketing company. Her motivation? To spend more time with her two young children and take on a new challenge that would use her strengths, give her a more flexible lifestyle, and make a real impact on others.

Within 3 years, she became a 7-figure earner in her company (and now she's a 6-figure MONTHLY earner) and has earned many prestigious awards and honors in the process. She was one of the first to earn a Lexus and reach the top of her company's pay plan, to be awarded the status of "Top Recruiter", inducted into her company's Hall of Fame and serve as a Leadership Advisory Board Member. Ask Romi what she's most proud of however, and she'll brag about her team's success and how thrilled she is to see them reaching their goals and dreaming bigger.

In addition to all her business success, Romi is passionate about helping women "Live Full Out" and experience more fulfillment in all areas of their lives.

John Neustadt

John Neustadt ND is a nationally recognized naturopathic doctor and integrative medical expert. Dr. Neustadt was founder and medical director of a clinic in Montana until his wife, Romi, retired him two years ago following the huge success of her network marketing business. He was then able to focus on growing his own dietary supplement company with products that help people with osteoporosis, cancer and memory loss.

Dr. Neustadt has published more than 100 research reviews and three books, has been recognized as a Top-Ten Cited Author by the world's largest health care publisher, and is a frequent lecturer and radio show guest. Dr. Neustadt understands the demands direct sales can place on a family and has worked with his wife to help juggle all their professional responsibilities and two young kids so she was able to grow her network marketing business to 7-figures annually.

Sara Marble

As a full time nurse and busy mom to 3 young boys, Sara Marble wasn't exactly "looking for a business" when she stumbled onto her current company, but she was looking for a way to spend more time with her family (without giving up her income).

Since that time (just 3 short years ago), Sara has rocketed to the top of her company, becoming the 11th Sapphire Ambassador in the company and winning several contests and cash bonuses along the way. Sara equates her success with her deep love of people and her passion for helping others achieve their goals. She is especially skilled at using "elegant influence" to sell products and recruit people, and has a growing team of professional women who are working hard to duplicate her success.

Sara's reputation as an inspiring and heart-centered leader is spreading beyond her company, and her story was recently featured in Networking Times magazine.

Pamela Barnum

Pamela Barnum is a perfect example of the unique women who are currently getting involved in the network marketing/direct sales profession. She met her husband Kevin while both were working as undercover police officers — posing as a couple to infiltrate drug dealers in Canada. She went on to complete law school and became Federal Crown Prosecutor, trying drug offenders at the National level. As Kevin advanced in the police force and their son Kaleb arrived, Pamela found herself juggling a very busy family with a "more than full" professional career, without my time or energy to do much else. Something had to change.

She and husband Kevin investigated several options to leverage their time and income, before being introduced to a wellness product by a neighbor. At first neither Pamela nor Kevin had much interest in developing a business, but positive experiences with the products (for both themselves and friends) opened their minds enough to investigate further. Within 6 months, they were earning a 6-figure income, and within 18 months both she and Kevin were able to replace their combined $250k in salaries and resigned from their full-time jobs.

Pamela and Kevin now lead one of the fastest growing teams within their company — with distributors throughout Canada the US, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, and have received awards such as Fastest Growing Business 2010, Rising Star 2011, Shooting Star 2012 as well as being members of the Field Advisory Board.

In addition to all their accolades, Pamela and Kevin have learned a great deal about the dynamics of building a successful business as a couple. They now coach many other professionals to leave their stressful 9-5 jobs behind and to "work less and live more".

Kevin Barnum

Kevin Barnum spent 22 years as a Police Officer in Canada, working as a canine handler and in other specialized units. He and wife Pamela met when both were working undercover as police officers, posing as a couple to infiltrate drug dealers in Canada. Although he enjoyed his career, Kevin knew early on that the traditional 9-5 world was not going to provide his family with the income or time freedom they wanted.

After researching and experimenting with several ways to build wealth (including investing in real estate, stock markets and franchising) Pamela and Kevin were introduced to a nutritional health program through a neighbor. Although Kevin initially "wanted nothing to do with mlm" he eventually became more open-minded after experiencing tremendous benefits from the products, and learning more about how the business really worked.

He and Pamela jumped in, and within 18 months they were able to replace their combined incomes of $250,000 and leave their previous careers to build their business full time. Since that time, they've developed one of the fastest growing teams in their company, ranking in the Top 50 internationally, and Top 10 within Canada.

In addition to all these successes, Kevin and Pamela have learned a lot about growing a business as a couple. They've learned how to balance their unique strengths as individuals, and how best to work together as a team. They now coach other professionals who are ready to leave the "rat race" and duplicate their financial and lifestyle success. He and Pamela currently live in Fernie, British Columbia and spend their time skiing and enjoying tons of quality time with their son Kaleb.

Loren Robin

Loren Robin is quickly becoming one of the most dynamic female leaders in network marketing. In her former career, she was a very successful real estate broker in southern Florida, ranking in the top 1% of realtors nationwide while single-handedly raising two young boys. When the bottom fell out of the real estate market (and with her boys now in college) Loren felt pressured to reinvent herself and create a second business.

She took inspiration from some of her real estate clients (successful leaders in network marketing companies who'd purchased homes from her) and decided to educate herself on the profession. Loren followed her heart, joined the industry and within 5 months became a Presidential Ambassador (Enterprise i-rep) — the first in her company to reach that level (a record she still holds). Her current team is comprised of over 17,000 reps in Canada and the United States, and her organization generates 1 million dollars in monthly sales.

Loren's greatest gift is her ability to recruit and influence others with heart and integrity. She is a master at creating authentic relationships that serve others and generate long-term business. Having overcome many adversities in her personal and professional life, Loren helps other women develop the strength and perseverance needed to accomplish their biggest goals.
