Continuing the Dani Johnson Secrets

Okay you should be getting the hint by now of the last 2 post. They were the beginning of a 5 week series that is powerful for any new person to just starting in business. Dani Johnson and her training is extremely specific with technique and content. All you have to do is apply to your business but leverage Dani to help train your new person.

The five week series starts on her website log in as a free member and then go to the profit zone training calls. Scroll down the page till you get to the call dated January 24th 2005. Start the five week series.

For the record I don't get paid by Dani Johnson or her company. I'm not an employee or staff member and that link is not an affiliate link. I'm just sharing what has helped me to create the stories you've read on this site.

2nd Dani Johnson Secret

As I promised in the last post, I'm sharing with you specific training that I guide someone just a couple of weeks in their business to. The very first thing you need to have them do is go register for a free membership at

Then take them to the call that I recommended last week. After that your new person who has been following a systematized process it's important that we keep teaching them they why of the how. The how is what we do and then once they are doing it and guiding people through your marketing process teach them the why.

For this I use a call that explains presentations and it's also a call that DFI modeled with one on one coaching with Dani Johnson. It talks about what a successful presentation is and Dani explains something that a new person would not quite understand. How do they know they are using a successful presentation and what is the psychology behind it.

5 Steps to a Successful Business: Dani Johnson

OK here's a little secret! Dani Johnson's website has hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars worth of training for free. If you are not using it for your self and for those you are developing you are STUPID.

See how I say things politely :)

Bottom line is this, we are not God and we as individuals can not be all things to all people. Personally I plug into Dani Johnson and her training to keep sharpening my skills and stay on my "A" game. We've all had those times were we didn't feel like working, the only issue is success doesn't wait. Dani Johnson and her training helps me succeed.

Below is another Secret I use. Dani Johnson and her training is great to help you train a new associate. Now you can't just throw them out there randomly and so go listen to something. You need to guide them to what they are listening to.

In the next few days I'll be showing you how I use this training on my team. To get all the installments make sure you put your email in the BOX on the right margin of this blog and they will be emailed to you.

After new associate starts I usually guide them through our training with DFI which as most of you know is extremely specific and to the point on exactly what we do and how we make money. Then after a couple of days on the phone we will have a conversation and I just ask would you like your initial contact to be better? Dani Johnson on her website does specific training on building a successful business and step 1 is an initial contact.

Then I'll guide them to the Dani Johnson website.

This is the call I walk them too.

5 Steps To A Successful Business - Step 1 - Initial Contact
- Monday, January 24, 2005

Dani kicked off a new 5 week series covering the critical 5 steps of building a successful home based networking business. Tonight’s call was on step #1 - Making the Initial Contact! Here are some details:

-Learn the primary difference in the mindset between professionals and amateurs.

-How to discover a prospects needs, strengths and goals.

-The right mindset to have when making the initial contact so you can connect with your prospect and build trust.

-How to build a connections between your prospect and your business opportunity.

-What your focus should and should NOT be on when making the initial contact.

-How to make a friend fast.

-How to ask the right questions to discover their needs, strengths and goals.

-How to develop the posture and authority of a business developer, not a sales person.

-How to get them to reveal to you who they are and how to recruit them.

-How to match their body language and relate to them.

-How much time to spend building a rapport and getting the prospect to talk about themselves.

-How to make the initial contact with warm market.

-What your prospect truly cares about, learn this and you’ll be years ahead of the competition.

-How to deal with the person who sounds or acts like they have everything and don’t have any needs or goals.

-Words to stay away from.

-Live role play and more!

To make this training effective several things must be in place. You must register as a free member to Dani Johnson's website. Then go to the area and click on free training. Scroll all the way down till you come to the appropriate date. If you are not getting the results you are looking for you should be plugging into training every day. Dani Johnson training has been what I have plugged into most often in my Home Business with DFI.

To Your Success,

Get your Fire Back

Successful DFI Director and business leader Michelle Gibson forwarded this message to me on facebook today! Very very good words indeed!


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE"For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you…"(II Timothy 1:6, NIV)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and VictoriaI believe that God has planted seeds of greatness on the inside of every one of us. We all have dreams and desires, things we want to accomplish; things we want to see changed. But so many times, life has a way of stealing our dreams. We go through disappointments, face adversity, things don't turn out as we would like. Too often, we just end up settling for second best. But God doesn't want us to settle for second best. He wants us to be determined, press on, and pursue the greatness that's on the inside. We should never let "good enough" be good enough!

I want to encourage you today to stir yourself up and get your fire back. Start speaking victory over your future. If one dream has died, dream another dream. Put yourself in a positive, faith-filled environment. Get around people of excellence who live passionately. Fan the flame that is in you so you can move forward into all God has in store for you!

Michelle is an Incredible Person and thanks for sharing this with all of us!
Live is a Gift we Choose to make it GREAT!

Jackie O'Quinn Said It

I ran across this motivational article written by Mr Jackie O'Quinn successful Business Developer, Coastal Director, Author and Featured Speaker. Caution this one will hit you in the gut he pulls no punches.

by Jackie O'Quinn, 14 June 2004
“We are, what we have chosen to be” –Author Unknown

In a Democratic nation we have many choices. The sum of our choices will determine the level of success we will reach. You will hear people say, “One day I am going to have a bigger home” or “I will make more money” or “I will drive a better car.” The question you have to ask yourself if you have said these things is, “Do I really mean it?” If you do, do you have a plan? Will your current plan get you the things that you have said you wanted? If you answered no, to one of the last three questions, then you are only dreaming. You are wishing with no real desire and will likely have no more than you currently have in life. You see we have to make a conscious decision to succeed in life or to just have something more. If you are unhappy with your life then look in the mirror because in all likelihood you have no one else to blame but yourself. Sure, there are circumstances OUT of our control; but how we deal with and overcome those circumstances IS within our control!

We can choose what to wear. We can choose the hairstyle or haircut we want. We choose who our friends are. We choose what jobs to apply for. We decide whether or not to show up at work on time. Does it not stand to reason, that if we have so many choices in life? We can make choices that will allow us to be successful? If you wanted to start a business and didn’t have the money, you can choose to save, beg, borrow, and scrap the money until you have enough to get started. The great thing about Coastal as we know is it didn’t take that much to get started. Let’s face it; if one’s life depended on it 90% of the people in a Democratic nation could come up with at least $5000 within 72 hours. So the real question is how bad do you want it? If you choose to just work your nine to five J.O.B. (Just Over Broke) and choose not to get anymore out of life. Please do me this one favor, don’t be envious or hateful as I become more and more successful just because you have chosen not to.

It amazes me at the number of people who are unhappy in life and are quick to ridicule those that seem to have more; but yet they refuse to make choices that would allow them to get more out of life. If you have chosen to join this amazing business of ours, then congratulations! You are making a choice to get more out of life and to succeed in some way. However, if you are in Coastal and you are making $50,000 to $60,000 a year but continue to say you want to make $100,000. Ask yourself, “Am I making the choice to do that or am I just wishing it?” It is ok to wish and to fantasize about things just make sure that you are honest with yourself and you recognize the difference between wishing and choosing.

If you are just starting with Coastal make a CHOICE right away to be successful. If your business is not doing as well as you would like, that’s great! You can choose to change that! Make a CHOICE to grow your business to where you want it. If you want to make $50,000 in this business then CHOOSE that. If you want to make $100,000 then CHOOSE that. If you want to make $1,000,000 then CHOOSE that. Just remember success is a choice!

IMPORTANT...A Moment of Your Time

Do you believe in reaping and sowing? How about karma? You know good karma and bad karma, bad karma hangs over us like a dark cloud. Until you build up some of that good stuff that bad karma just chases you. You keep having those days you can't do nothing right.

OK maybe karma's not your thing and you don't really grasp reaping and sowing, how about "what goes around comes around". You 've heard that before I'm sure.

What if it was possible to have good people just randomly do good things for you. Some of us :) would call it a blessing. Do you know one of the best ways to be blessed? Do something simply out of the kindness of your heart for someone else and bless them. That's an example of sowing good things, and if we sow good things then we must reap good things.

LISTEN UP! It doesn't have to be a big thing either, just selfless.

Here's a selfless opportunity for you. Below is a letter I got from a very success business woman Angela Lasher who I've partnered with over the years. She's had such an incredible impact on so many people's lives. She's smart, intelligent and just knows how to get things done and benefit others at the same time. She has something she cares about and we can take 2 minutes of our day and help her for a good cause.

PLUS: you will be building good Karma, Sowing good things or making sure when you need someone they are there!

REMEMBER! It's the small things we do that has the largest impact.

FROM: Angela Lasher

I have so much more confidence to go out and talk to people. Without the skills I have learned from Dani, I would be spinning my wheels. Thank you! ~Shannon Tope

Since coaching with Dani, I took some time out my business to repair my relationship with my kids and my husband who I had been neglecting. These relationships are now back on track. My business has grown from 1000 when starting the coaching to 2511 today. I just hit a new level that should see my cheque almost doubling. Now when people ask me how I'm building my business, I just tell them that I listen to Dani Johnson almost every day, and if they are serious about their businesses, they should do the same. You rock Dani! ~Jackie Crawford

I could not possibly say enough about the impact that Dani has had on my personal and professional life... The success I've had in handling my time, my money, my team, my relationships, my prospecting and so much more are all due to the training and development from Dani. Every time I listen to her speak, I believe that I can succeed... ~Winifred Woody

Hi Friend, Next weekend will be here before you know it and many sports fans will be at home watching their favorite college and/or professional football teams. What's interesting about American football fans is that they display something that many people have lost...PASSION!

Starting the Day out with Luminous Sky

It feels so amazing to be back in my home office. Today I start back in the office with Luminous Sky an amazing band that I first met at a Dani Johnson event. I highly recommend their music as a great way to start your day. They have an Album titled "Beautiful Revolution" and it is off the chains. The 10th Track "Choose" is awesome!

OK so that's my plug for a great band. Here's how the day is going to go.

I woke up at 7:20, wife hit the snooze button on me. I've prayed talked to God started a new advertising campaign just moments ago. Today I will find new friends and meet amazing people and someone may have an incredible chance of becoming part of our amazing group!

Part of having a successful day is plugging into positive inspiration. That can be anything and today it started out as The Luminous Sky. You should check them out! It will end with Dani Johnson's Monday Night Call.

Yours Truly

Do you want to hear God laugh?

Have you ever wandered what God sounded like making such a joyful noise?



I have to thank Renae Heikkila for sharing that with our leadership team. It was a good joke but it's also very practical. Look at were you are and where you want to go. Hopefully he's in your plans, otherwise it's hard to get where you are going.

DFI is HOME and I'm Back

Socialism vs Captialism

OK this is a good video. If I have to hear that capitalism is dead or free enterprise does not work anymore in the media I'm going to scream :)

Enjoy and please educate others. Don't let the masses be persuaded. Educate them on what causes economies to move it's what Milton Friedman calls it greed and I understand his concept but I call it entrepreneurism.

Entrepreneurism is what this country was founded on. It's what makes our COUNTRY GREAT!


Yours Truly,
