Much about our business is intangible. We can’t see it or touch it. The tangible part of the business is comprised of a number of people independently working together. You can see them, speak to them, touch them and acquire knowledge from them on how to best succeed. Together we conduct and attend tangible meetings, trainings, seminars, conferences and conventions, with a goal to produce an outstanding organization. The intangible part is the enthusiasm and belief levels of excited, passionate, committed UnFranchise® Owners, and the positive energy they exude that affects everyone in attendance. GMTSS events allow all those who attend to witness what can be accomplished as an UnFranchise® Owner. The enthusiasm, passion, and belief do NOT translate through when watching a video or listening to an audio, or hearing stories from those that attended. You have to be there. Your team will do what you do, not what you tell them to do. By personally attending all GMTSS events, you are setting an example for your organization to follow and duplicate. “What you set into motion carries in motion.” It is imperative that you and your team attend again and again. GMTSS events are the glue that holds our organizations together and allows us to sustain and maintain our business growth.
The foundation to success as an UnFranchise® Owner starts by consistently conducting and/or attending One-to-One meetings, Home Business Presentations, home product events, and UnFranchise® Business Presentations. These result producing activities are what is necessary to consistently seed new growth in your organization. You must lead by example by demonstrating your commitment to attend GMTSS events year-round, including all Local Seminars, District Conferences, Regional Conventions, and major Corporate events. The bigger the event, the more positive the energy, enthusiasm, and belief. The biggest impact events are the International Convention and World Conference, where all UnFranchise® Owners are able to recharge their batteries, reaffirm their levels of belief, strengthen their attitudes and stimulate their thinking. Attendance at the major Corporate events is where UFO’s are able to renew their sense of purpose and witness the fruits of their efforts
Hard work alone does not necessarily create wealth, time freedom or lifestyle. There needs to be an accelerator or leveraging component to scale up our efforts. The GMTSS is what allows us to create leverage and lean on the expertise and experience of the highly successful UnFranchise® Owners on the Speaker Bureau. In order to gain maximum leverage, you must not only attend but master the art of MOVING tickets into the hands of others. Events require tickets. You cannot attend without one. Successful UnFranchise Owners always pre-purchase tickets to upcoming events and remain laser-focused on moving those tickets into the hands of their teammates and prospects. They build event to event, always intent on getting a larger number of people to attend the next event.
This is the secret to fast growth, solid growth, and a significant, walk-away residual income.
