DFI Announces "Month of Momentum" First Time Ever in the 14 year History of Coastal Travel!

The summer time is rolling around and it’s an amazing time to be working from home. To master the summer time opportunity DFI “Decide Freedom International” has announced for the first time ever in the 14 year history of Coastal Travel that DFI is sponsoring the “Month of Momentum” for Coastal Travel. Business developer and six figure income earner Jackie O’Quinn said, “This will give our team the awesome ability to get the most out of the summer time season were business is easy pickin’s”.

DFI has put in place for Coastal Travel several major events for the “Month of Momentum”, events that have never happened in Coastal Travel. Renae Heikkila another business developer and six figure income earner stated, “That in her 4+ year history she has never seen anything like this before.” The DFI events that will happen include but are not limited to Tornado Tuesday and Thundering Thursday plus Celebration Saturday.

Stacy O’Quinn from the Six Figure Income Club was asked, “What was the main purpose of DFI to do this for all of Coastal Travel” and he said, “Our goal is for every single person that has not qualified out to become profitable in the next 30 days.” DFI, it appears understands that they can’t make people succeed but they can provide the support and training required to create success. Creating more success than anyone else in the history of the home business industry is a lofty goal but as Jackie put it, “With making commissions up to $9,705 it not hard to support people to become 6 figure income earners and Coastal Travel has been paying large commissions for over 14 years.

If you are in Coastal Travel or DFI and missed the detailed training call go to and look for it on the right side there is a link for it. Go there NOW and Listen.

CEM has helped DFI succeed with Coastal Travel!

In DFI we have amazing relationships with the best advertising companies in the industry. When you are looking at online advertising there are many companies that basically just buy and resale there leads. We only found 2 that we where willing to work with that we knew did not do that. The company I've built most of my business with is Cutting Edge Media.

Let's not talk about the facts below are the results!

"These all came from the last 30 days"

"I must say that out of the CEM leads I’ve purchased I’ve had more positive feedback from the contacts than with other leads I’ve purchased – and I’ve been able to contact all but 2 of them! One contact had been to my website five times before I had even spoken to him! And 3 others are in the pipeline! CEM has provided great leads and I’ll keep coming back for more. Thanks so much!"- Danita Wilkins, WV

"I am just blown away by the fact that the DFI Premium leads are helping me to make use of the two hours that I have to work my business. I had received 7 leads and three interviews and I know that there was 2 others that were trying to contact me while I was in interviews. I am so impressed by CEM DFI Premium leads and the quality of the leads!!! The response my team is getting with the other lead campaigns is incredible. CEM you guys absolutely deliver what you promise, so thank you so much for all of your hard work! You are all really amazing! Thank you for making my life easier and more efficient in the time that I have to work my business!"
- Cadie Kalmes, MN

"The DFI leads are awesome! Most of the people are very interested in getting the information and have already looked at my website! It makes it easier getting people through the process. Thank you so much CEM! I look forward to building my business and future with your help! Thanks!"-
David Gregoria, MN

"I have never been so impressed with leads. My contact ratio has been crazy! I make half the calls in a day... because my time is spent actually qualifying people. Now, thanks to these leads... I am busy doing what makes money, talking with prospects! Thanks CEM!!"
- Jill Albanys, MI

"I am still working my first batch of DFI Premium leads and so far, I have already made $3200, Thanks CEM!"
– Renae Heikkila, MN

"I just wanted to try out the Coastal Premium and Movie leads to see how well they worked—and from the first batch I made my first $1,300 sale! People have been contacting me about my business, which is an absolute first. I will definitely be using these leads again!"
– Gavin Berkey, MI

“I just want to say “Thank You!” I have had 12 Premium Leads delivered so far and I have had such good luck with them! Most of them have been to my web site and when I call them it's like they know me and they’re excited to hear from me. Every single one of the leads that I have contacted has been scheduled for a Business Overview call. I have used other companies before, but your leads are the best. I don't know how you do it, but keep it up!”
– Cynthia Chamberlin, CA

"These are the best results I have ever obtained on 18 dials from any lead source including previous CEM leads."
– Richard Birney-Smith, ON

"Out of 5 movie leads, I was able to contact 4 of them and have 1 deciding where she wants to get started with Coastal Travel. Excellent job on finding phenomenal people to help. Keep up the great work!!!"
– Jamie Waltisperger, TX

"I’ve been with Coastal for 2 years and your company is my favorite! Excellent customer service and excellent leads . . . the majority of the money I’ve made has come from Cutting Edge Media. I’ve made well over 6 figures and probably 90% has been through you! So thanks a ton, keep up the good work!"
– Jen Murphy, MT

"All I can say is WOW! I am using your short-form redirect leads and your DFI Movie leads. I have set up 5 people this week on our system and have 5 more scheduled to get on by the end of the week. I have only been this business a few short months, but these leads, both types, are incredible; they TOTALLY compensate in quality for my developing skill. :) My closing ratios have gone up to 7 out of 10. Numbers like that for a newbie are AMAZING! CEM leads have made me the top producer for 2 days running during our company’s blitz. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. You have made my success in this business possible!"
– Jenny Baker, CO

“I wanted to let everyone know how awesome the DFI Video Leads are. Out of 20 leads (my first day), I got 1 new business owner on my team and 4 more that are want to become new business owners! I would definitely recommend the DFI Video Leads to everyone! DFI has helped my Coastal Vacations business in a very positive way. I’ve gained a total of 4 team members in a 4 week period!”
- Sheila Taylor, LA

Thanks Cutting Edge Media,
Stacy O'Quinn

DFI and Coastal Travel, First time ever in HISTORY!

For the first time ever in the history of Coastal Travel, DFI will be hosting a month of momentum for our entire team. No wander we are growing so fast. No wander with all the training and support like this so many of us succeed!

Just Tuesday night we heard from Derrick on the 6 figure income club call. He has generated 12,000 dollars and he's only been working with DFI for 2 weeks. He is just one example of what we hear happening. Jenny from CO has only been with us a couple months and she made 7,000 dollars in two weeks.

During June, the Month of Momentum, we will have Thundering Thursdays and Tornado Tuesdays. We have a goal to bring in more business then ever happened in one month in the history of Coastal Travel. Together as a team we will succeed. Our goal is to have every single person who may not be a qualified director to help them accomplish that by the end of JUNE!

What would 7,000 dollars in two weeks do for you? What about 12,000 dollars?

Name 10 things that are positive in your life!

Are you struggling right now? Are you unhappy with the way somethings are going in your life? Are you where you wanted to be at this point in your life already? WHY!

Okay, a couple more questions for you...

What is the best thing happening in your life right now? Stop and think for a minute where you are right now in your home, office, school, business, job, library or church; and even looking at this website what can you think of right now that you are grateful for?

Which questions where easier to answer? Why is that? Every thing that we can think of negative and that we complain about has a positive. It's easy to find the positive as well.

-I don't like my job, BUT it pays the bills thank God!

-I don't like my home we are cramped and not enough bedrooms for the kids, BUT thank goodness we have a roof over our head!

-I don't like my boss, BUT thank God he hired me!

-I don't make enough money, BUT thank you Lord I have some money!

Every single thing we have to complain about has a positive that we are not focusing on!!! Then you have positive things in your life that you don't complain about at all.

Did you catch that? Everything we complain about has a positive aspect and every thing that we are positive about we don't complain or tear down to others. So we have more positive things going on but somehow we find it much more simple to complain.

If you want more of the positive things going on in your life, then Praise God for the good things. Praise those little seeds of hope and those little tiny gifts God has given us so they can actually reach their full potential in your life!

A Pastor friend shared this story with me and it's all about keeping things in perspective.

There was a girl and she wanted to tell her parents how she had failed a class in college and she did not know how to tell them so she wrote a letter similar to this.

Dear MOM and DAD,

Because of the fire set off in my dorms by riots I had temporary lung damage and had to go to the hopsital. While I was there I fell in love with an orderly and we moved in together. I dropped out of school when I found out I was pregnant and he got fired because of his drinking. So we are moving to Alaska where we might get married after the birth of our baby.


Your Loving Daughter

P.S. None of this really happened but I did fluke my chemistry class and I wanted to keep things in perspective.

Name 10 things that are postive in your life right now... see how long it takes you!

To Your Success,

Stacy O'Quinn

3 People Taught Me Amazing Things at Dynasty

Just getting back yesterday from Creating a Dynasty an advanced training seminar with Dani Johnson which was unbelieveable. Dani's events continue to grow as she grows and I truly have no idea where we will be in the next year. Much less the growth of our team!

This blog post is a little different though because something made an impact on me at this last seminar that I will not forget very soon. I'll tell you more about that in a minute.

Birds of a feather flock together. Have you ever been in an experience and what the outcome became was a little different then what you expected? Dani Johnson's seminars and for sure Dynasty is absolutely an amazing event. Often times we don't even maximize an opportunity we have because we do not realize what environment we are in.

That is what I experienced this weekend. I expected as usual that Dani Johnson and her training would make a huge impact on my life and business. I mean come on it's because of that training that I made a 6 figure income my first year from home. But this weekend something else increased that impact.

I met 3 people at Dynasty that are not in my business or own my team. I've never really interacted with them until going to a Dani Johnson event. The each proved something amazing and powerful. I can strategically learn from each of them and I have!

First there is Jeff Rudy, He is a gentleman that you can just feel an aura of leadership and confidence around him. He is one of those people when you are talking with him he makes you extremely comfortable and you can tell that if you want to go places follow him. He impressed me by that sheer confidence he put off and made me realize that any leader has to have that trait. YOU MUST KNOW where you are going and how you plan to get there.

Second, I met John Hill. John made you realize in just a few moments that he was a guy that really truly cares for other people. He is a safe person to be around. You never have to wander were he is coming from in his communication he is extremely percise and strategic in the words that he uses. I realize communicating like that is something I must learn. Thanks John!

Last and certainly not least I met a young lady named Ashley Schmidt. I quickly understood that style and determination are things that you don't find very often at least not the way Ashley puts the two together. She dresses with a style that makes you notice her and once you've met her it's only the beginning. It only takes a few seconds talking to her to understand that she is prepared to climb any mountain that she must to reach her goals. It was inspiring! She has a desire to impact children and to guide people on raising their kids. I have no doubt many kids will be blessed because of her efforts.

This weekend was a big deal! We had 35 DFI and Coastal Travel members there total! Dani Johnson certainly was on her game like usual. But I will never forget the impact that Ashley Schmidt, John Hill and Jeff Rudy had on me. If you ever met one of these guys you will never ever forget it

Keep Your Eyes Open!

Sticking With The Proven Network Marketing Success System

As I was looking up things on the .net I ran accross this Article that Dani Johnson wrote. It is a simple straight forward message that I wish someone shared with me day one in my business. Working from home Dani's training is the reason I made a 6 figure income my first year and this lesson is only a very tiny amount of what I've learned through Dani Johnson and her training. Which is the reason our entire system in DFI is built around Dani and her training.

Read On!
Stacy O'Quinn

Has this happened to you? You get a brand new person started in your Network Marketing business and they randomly start talking to people, make a few sales and sign some people up. They are excited because things are working and then they get unteachable. Now they want to change this, add to that, do their own pre-recorded message, develop a website and check into other trainers. Let me show you how to handle those "smart ones" who try to reinvent the wheel...

Many of your brightest new reps were initially attracted to your home-based business for two reasons, time freedom and low overhead. Then they decide to get overly creative and higher call centers to do outbound calls for recruiting. They then decide to put up booths in all these places to collect lots of phone numbers.

Listen folks, the wheel is not broken. It works. Your company has had a tremendous amount of success. You don't need to reinvent anything.

Here's the reality check, you have to look at your results. Here's what was spoken over me harshly 18 years ago. This millionaire told me that if he listened to my ideas, then he would go broke like I was. His ideas were worth a half million dollars a month and mine were worth nothing because I had no results to show. He said to me, "Quit trying to size yourself up with me. As soon as your stack of Ben Franklins is as big as mine, then you come talk to me."

What this man said was harsh but true. It was the best thing he could have said to me. I was so busy becoming overly creative; complicating things and the complication does not produce income. It's the very simplistic part of our business that makes us the most amount of money.

It is as simple as:

1. Making the initial contact

2. Bringing them through a business presentation

3. Following up and closing

4. On the job training and

5. Putting them through a leadership development system.

That's it!

So don't reinvent the wheel. What ever it takes to keep yourself recruiting at least 80% of the time is what you should be focused on. Coming up with new ideas, new systems, new programs, rearranging this, changing that...none of these things will make you more money. Can these things work? Yes, but there's a much greater chance that they won't.

There's already a success path that has been carved out. If all you do is focus on the success path of the 5 steps above, you will make an absolute fortune! Then you can decide if you want to change something. The first step is to master the existing path that has been carved out for you. It really is that simple!

Dynasty with Dani Johnson and DFI

This weekend Dani Johnson will have her Dynasty advanced training seminar in Dallas TX. In just a few short minutes we will be driving there. It will be an amazing weekend! The training that will come out of this weekend will be unbelieveable! The skills that we've seen and growth from those that attend Dynasty with Dani Johnson you can't really compare versus those who have not been through that advanced leadership development.

This weekend is going to be so dang fun! There will be over 30 of us from DFI and Coastal Travel at this event! Our team will continue to explode!!! Meeting each other and sharing strategies specific to our business is amazing plus, we get to connect with other top leaders in the home business industry. Leaders like Nate Ridgeway, Jodi Stot, Kimber King, Tom Challan, Jeff Usner, Jefferson Santos and many more!

This doesn't include the Leaders that are kicking butt and taking names in DFI, many of them you will hear on training calls volunteering their time shareing what has worked. At Dynasty or any event you will meet Jackie O'Quinn, Renae Heikkila, plus Catherine Rupp, Cadie Kalmes Shawn Scheppele, Stephanie Johnson, Angela Lasher, Amanda Butler, Tina Cowan, Cindy Chamberlin, David Gregoria, Jennifer Murphy, Jill Albanys or any of our top leaders which is certainly a list too long to name them all here.

How to Increase your Results from your Team?

How can you increase your results, so that you can make more money and have more freedom? How do you get your team to move and build so that they can become successful too?

You have to stay in an environment that is moving and shaking! If you are in that environment then you have to build it to affect more people. Dani talks about that momentum does not happen by accident. The first part is we do our part daily in our personal efforts the other piece is strategic events that occur that maximize where you are.

As we build going to June we have to know that those that we find now will be part of that momentum. Make sure that your team is part of the prospecting and closing classes with Tom at Dani

You can get all the details right here.

When you sign up for these classes then reply to this email and let us know that you are part of June’s month of momentum.

Can June be your month of MOMENTUM?

To the Best Looking People in all of DFI!

Have you ever been able to build your business with strategic insight? Have you ever been in a position on a day to day basis to see how everyone else around you is building their business? Have you ever been working and came across a situation and wandered how you could have done better in a given circumstance? Do you want to increase your results? Do you want to work your business so that it is fun again without striving or struggling? Do you want a simple plan to help others?

During the month of June we are planning to position ourselves to maximize the “Low Hanging Fruit” Dani Johnson refers too. We will be having accountability as a team and increase team calls. Also many of us will be part of Tom Challan’s classes. Tom Challan grew a team of 20,000 people in two years!!! DO you want to know how he did that? Sign up for his classes right now. Before they fill up!

More details will be coming... in the next week. For now forward this to everyone on your team and let them be aware of the Month of MOMENTUM! Anyone you are working with is more than welcome to take part in our month of momentum!

Here is what I need from you!

1. Will you be taking part in the month of momentum?

2. Will you be part of the classes with Tom Challan?

3. Along with team meetings weekly discussing our results what other suggestions would you have for the month of momentum?

4. Would you be interested in 15 minute kick off calls certain days of the week? Any other suggestions just let me know!

NOTE: You must have your membership package and be committed to actively building your business for 30 days to be part of this!

High Retention in Network Marketing Made Simple!

Dani Johnson, her training and concepts have been a huge factor in our success in DFI. Below is an article that she wrote... It is very POWERFUL, once again Dani Johnson is dead right on what it takes to be successful. Regardless of your background, I'd highly encourage you to get to the next Dani Johnson training Seminar if success is your goal!

Even the best MLM recruiters can have difficulty keeping people around and actively building their businesses. This article will show you the simple process to keep your reps motivated and producing results. You will now understand the most important first step to developing a healthy and growing team.

Before we get to that first step you must grasp the basic concept of working your business consistently. If you work your business consistently, it will grow consistently. When you cruise for a while and then stop to become the nurturer who tries to hatch your reps like a hen does, your retention level starts to go down. You will notice that more people become inactive or quit because you are not adding enough new people.

If you are working very part time like 5 hours per week, there is no reason why you should not be able to activate at least 3 new people every month. Just take it up from there. If you're working your business 10 hours per week, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to bring in at least 6 new reps a month.

To make sure that you are activating the new people properly you should be utilizing the involvement concept. This is a supernatural process for retention where the burden is easy and the way is light. This system helps you get new people doing something right away and then keeps them involved to the point where there is ownership in them.

This is not the time to download your new person Sue with a bunch of information because she will become an information idiot who is unmotivated. That information is not going to get Sue to go to work. It's just going to give her a lot to think about.

So what is important during the first 48 hours is to get new reps involved in the process. The involvement of Sue immediately going to work and making money is what keeps her from quitting. When She's making money, she can't afford to quit!

Alexis and Edgar at the Beach!

Last weekend we took this picture of Alexis and Edgar at the beach. They had a ball. What is it about kids and watching them discover life that we enjoy so much? Saltwater, sand and wind all elements they have not experienced yet in this age range! Watching them run around on the beach and through the edge of the water just feels like total freedom.

This weekend we took the kids to the Zoo in New Orleans for Mother's Day! Mom had a blast and so did the kids. One of the funniest things ever is trying to hear your kids pronounce hippopotamus. I smiled so hard listening to them my cheeks hurt! I'm sure you know this but watching our kids grow up and experience the world around them is completely amazing.

Going through the reptile section of the zoo we where trying to teach Alexis the dangers of Snakes because we live on the water. I'd say Alexis what do you do when you see a snake? She would respond, "You shoot it!" Then I'd say no little girls don't shoot anything and she would say I run to you daddy and you protect me. While I don't want her to be afraid of wildlife I do want her to respect it. Last thing I need is to see her and Edgar in the back yard trying to corner a Cottonmouth!

The joys of being a parent and to have the freedom to watch our kids grow is AWESOME!

Proud Daddy!

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten!

(a guide for Global Leadership)

All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sand pile at school.These are the things I learned:

Share everything.

Play fair.

Don't hit people.

Put things back where you found them.

Clean up your own mess.

Don't take things that aren't yours.

Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.

Wash your hands before you eat.


Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

Take a nap every afternoon.

When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.

Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.

Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.

And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.

Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living. Take any one of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.

And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.[Source: "ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN" by Robert Fulghum. See his web site at ]

What Controls Your Success?

Where do you find yourself right now? In this moment as you read this have you obtained the level of success you've wanted? Have you helped as many people as you had hoped that you could have by now? Has your strategic plan that you looked to achieve while you where in high school planning for college actually happened 5, 10, 20 years later? Is life as fun as you expected it to become, is it easier? Are you at the top of your game? Are you exactly where you want to be right now?

If nothing happens by chance and if success isn't by luck then what is stopping you? For anyone who would believe that success is based off of luck then I would argue what about all the lottery winners that where lucky and then bankrupt in a few years. What? You don't think that would happen to you? Neither did they! If you knew exactly how things would turn out then you probably would be in a different place today then where you are now!

The reality is you can either argue the above statements or you have a high level of leadership and you can accept them. The fact is the vast majority of us fall into those scenario's myself included. BUT, just because life is not where we want it right now does not mean we have to accept it. It does not mean we have to be lulled into accepting what we are not happy or comfortable with as our life. We can improve our circumstances. Circumstances never control the outcome! It's what you do in those circumstances that determine where you end up!

You can make a logical argument that ever successful person took risk in their life. They where not paralyzed in fear! Some how when we face a situation we make a decision that "seems" safe. Has your pass track record proven that those decisions are working for you? Every opportunity is realized by a calculated risk taking place. Here is the truth every time you take a risk you've given yourself a new opportunity period!

The only thing that you can do to activate your risk and provide a new opportunity for you IF you are not happy with where you are. Taking ACTION is the only thing that will activate your faith and create an opportunity for you. The Bible talks about faith without works is dead. Without taking risk you are never acting in faith. Right now there are some things going on in your family, marriage, work or school; you know there are some actions you must take but you are allowing fear in the way of your faith! So ACT NOW!

Action Kills Fear!-- Hans Johnson

Equip your Faith Take Action!
