Trisha SmithHi, my name is Trisha Smith, thanks for visiting our site! Our goal is to help provide you with information and resources to assist you in growing your home business. We are dedicated to our team’s success, so feel free to contact us any time with any questions you may have. Keep reading to hear a little about my story, how I got started, and how I can help you succeed in your own business.

My Beginnings

24 years ago I was a stay at home mom raising 3 boys. My husband had just hurt his back working construction (which he had done his whole life) and we were now searching the help wanted ads in our local newspaper to try and pay the rent. In our search we came across an ad that looked like a promising job offer. When we showed up however it turned out to be, you guessed it, a network marketing meeting.

I can tell you honestly that the only reason that we didn’t just turn around right then and go home is because we were literally on our last tank of gas and the car was smoking.

So we sat through the entire meeting and to say that I was skeptical is putting it nicely. You know that one you find in every audience with arms folded and a permanent scowl fixed to their face? Yep, that was me. Needless to say, I didn’t bite…but my husband did. Much to my surprise he was really excited and against my urgings he borrowed $4,000 and signed up…

Struggles

strugglesYou have to understand that this was 24 years ago, before the internet, before online marketing techniques, before automated systems. These were the days of knocking on people’s doors and handing out flyers, of visiting businesses and interrupting people to try and sell them face to face.

No body wants to do these things, but my husband was really determined to make this work. He forced himself to endure the ridicule and embarrassment of this kind of hard selling until he just couldn’t take it anymore.

So here we were sitting on $4,000 worth of product and no one to sell it. After seeing the kind of effort and sacrifice my husband had put into trying to make this work, I was inspired to give it a try myself.

I hit the phones and I hit them hard. Everyone knows how nerve-wracking it can be to sell over the phone to complete strangers, but I bet I have you beat. I would literally stare at the phone for a half an hour between each call working up the nerve to pick it up again. I even remember having to reward myself with mint chocolate chip ice cream at the end of each day for motivation. But I did it. And I will always remember the transformation that took place as I dug in and refused to give up.

The second hundred calls was nothing like the first and slowly but surely I got the hang of it. After 3 months of putting 800-1000 flyers on cars a day and talking to every lead, I was up to $10,000 in monthly volume.

Successes

SuccessThat was my first successful experience with network marketing. Since then this industry has allowed me to see $5,000 days, $8,000 weeks and $30,000 months! I’ve given speeches, taught company trainings, hosted regional meetings and conducted countless conference calls for numerous companies.

Pretty amazing when I think about it since I could hardly even pick up the phone when I started. But I just stuck with it and now being on the phone is one of my favorite parts of my business.

Just goes to show that you really don’t need to have any natural talent to make this work, just a strong work ethic and a burning desire that won’t quit…

I always tell people that really the most important thing is never giving up. I know it’s cliché, but it’s true and I’m living proof. I truly believe that if I can do it, anyone can if they just refuse to give up.

Working Smarter

light bulbBut I had built my business the hard way and what I was doing was anything but duplicatable. Who wants to cold call and hand out flyers? No one, that’s who.

Even though my business had become more sophisticated over the years and I was no longer flooding mall parking lots with marketing flyers, I still wasn’t able to help my team succeed the way I wanted them to because those methods of marketing require people to step so much farther out of their comfort zone than most people are willing to go.

So I decided to radically change my strategy.

I had recently been in a recruiting contest that I had worked my butt off to win. I was so proud of myself, that is until I learned that the number 2 person, who I had just barely been able to beat, was actually on vacation on a beach somewhere letting his online marketing do the work for him…that opened my eyes!

I began to implement online techniques for the first time in 2005, not using any of my pre-existing contacts or marketing methods, to see if I could make it work the way a new person would.

And boy did it work!

I was able to sponsor 1,000 people and build a global team of 15,000 members by simply combining internet marketing methods with a personal touch. Now this was more like it!

And this was also the better part of a decade ago. Since then the online landscape has changed so much and it is always evolving. It is now easier than ever for total newbies to make money with their home business right away, simply by leveraging the right online tools.

  • Paul Messina

    Hi Trish, Donald G is my upline in freetoolbox and I was wondering if you had any welcome emails or follow ups for members or email adcopy!

    • Hi Paul, yes I have a welcome email that I send out to all of my personal signups. I gave it to Donald, see if he can forward it over to you. If he can’t find it for whatever reason, let me know and I can send it to you. As far as email copy goes, there is a section in your back office that has copy you can use to get started. If you’re on my list and have gotten any prospecting emails from me, feel free to edit those and reuse them as well. Or if you haven’t gotten any, you can see if Donald has any copies of those as well.

These strategies don’t take a lot of time to implement so that might be a good way to get moving in the right direction while you’re still working full time.
