A Day in the Life: John Chang

No two UnFranchise® Owners are alike, and neither are their daily lives! If you’ve ever wondered how other UnFranchise Owners spend their time, when they build their business, or which activities they enjoy in their free time, you’re in luck! Today, we’re sharing what a day in the life of MAIC 2014 President’s Challenge Winner John Chang is like. Read on to find out how John spends his days building his business and enjoying life as an entrepreneur. 

My day usually starts at 6:00 am here in California. Market America is my full-time business, and I’ve disciplined myself to get up early even though I can work from home. Working from home is no reason to miss out on being productive early in the morning! First thing I do is send out a message of inspiration to our organization and share a few posts on Instagram and Facebook. I’m known as the “Let’s Go – Facebook guy” who is always enthusiastic for each day. After my Facebook posts, I’ll drink a glass of my Isotonix. Now that school has started back up, I’ll also be getting the kids up and ready to school in the morning. Once the kids are at school, my day of work/fun begins with online conferences to show the plan and products during.

If anyone wants to go full-time with their UnFranchise Business, you must get time management down pat! I have each hour of the day already planned out so I know what I need to do. In the morning hours if I’m not showing the plan, I’m prospecting via social media – primarily on Instagram and Facebook. Just starting new conversations and building relationships until the time is right to talk about the business. The more relationships I build, the more customers and partners come on board. This business is about people, not products!

During the afternoons, I always have in-person appointments to show the plan and share ideas. My day consists of about 20% prospecting, 40% result-producing activities (sell the products, sell the plan, sell the events). I like to have a set portion of the day in late afternoons to make customer service visits. I have many WebCenter customers Isotonix customers. Again, continuing to build on relationships and keep the conversation going at the same time. Dennis Franks says, “Have 30 or more conversations going and you’ll never run out of beans.” During the early evenings and sometimes in to late evenings, I work with our team members, usually through online corings or in-person corings. Sometimes I do one-on-one mentoring for those that need to build their skills.

I can’t emphasize enough how important time management and discipline are to your success, whether you’re working this business part-time or full time. Motivation only lasts so long, than you have to rely on your discipline to hit your goals. Stay laser focused and sharp on your goals and nothing can stop you.

My day usually ends about 8-9pm, which at that point, I get some free time to read self-improvement and leadership books. When you go full time with your Market America business, there will be some free time for you. But your free time is the best time to stop by local businesses to sell products! I like to stop by salons and makeup studios to get people interested in Motives. Next, visiting any health and fitness-related business is a great way to share the health nutrition products that we carry. Honestly, over the years, I’ve built my business, Market America in to my DNA! I’m always at work!

I usually take one full day in the weekend to just be with the kids, and spend some quality time. But I find it hard to take them out anywhere, and not find other people there to share my business with! Again, I’m always working and prospecting. Most of our product overviews and Motives parties happen during weekends. My Saturday and Sunday nights often consist of multiple events all across town to sell the products.

Everyone can make time for this; it’s just a matter of willingness to build your UnFranchise Business. You must believe in the company, the products, and the MPCP. You have to go out there with enthusiasm. How else will people want to get to know you or your business? When you believe, you become passionate and people will buy into your vision and join you in the effort. Just remember: wherever you go and whoever you talk to there is a potential for sharing your business!
