SFI is a truly Global Business. The main word here is Business. You need to run this as a proper business. Give it some effort and time - follow through with the training - Sponsor and refer members that you can - don't give up. Work your SFI business at least a few hours a week - complete your daily tasks, and use the marketing materials available to help you refer members to TripleClicks and SFI - continue to do that - you will get better at it with time and you will start seeing monthly residual profits that you will be proud off.
Today's Tip brought to you by Kirk Bannerman
Allow yourself sufficient time to actually succeed. In my many years of experience with online business, the most common reason people don't achieve success is that they expect "instant gratification" (in other words, they are looking to make good money right away) and they give up and drop out before their business has a chance to get some traction and succeed.
Sorry to burst the bubble, but there is no magic to online business, it takes sufficient time and effort to achieve online business success...just like any type of business a person chooses to develop.
Today's Tip brought to you by Paul Beamon
Building a successful online business is all about marketing, team building, and personal growth. Taking "massive action" in these key areas is vital to your progress. For example, if you want to market your business successfully, read as much as possible and put into practice what you've learned.
Same goes for team building and your own personal growth as an entrepreneur. Your "education" in business must be focused and continual. Therefore, I recommend that you go through all SFI'S training materials first, and then move on to IAHBE'S training.
Remember to be patient both with yourself and your SFI business. Financial freedom will not come overnight but it will come if you believe in yourself and remain committed to building your business.

"Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day, while failure is simply a few errors in judgement, repeated every day. It is the cumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgements that leads us to either fortune or failure."

Tip of the Day
Here are some strategies to keep yourself motivated when you are feeling discouraged.
Read about others who are successful. Nothing is more motivating than reading about or hearing about someone who has taken a business like yours and found success. Such stories can breathe new life into a business that you are about to give up on.
Set realistic goals. If you are just starting out, don't set your sales goals so high that they can never be reached. Talk to someone who has been there and get some realistic ideas of how much money you should expect, then cut it in half. It's much easier to feel motivated when you reach a goal than if you fail week after week because you expect too much.
Give yourself a reward. If you make a sale, buy a little something for yourself (nothing too big, you don't want to dip into your profits). Even if it's just a cold beer or a nice bubble bath, if you deserve a pat on the back, by all means, give yourself one.
Learn something new about your business. Keeping up to date on the latest industry news can be another way to keep motivated because you never know what you'll learn and how you can apply it to your business. Having an online business is not a stagnant thing and you should always be striving to learn more.
Try something new. If you hear about a new way to market your business, or a new sales pitch, try it out. The worst that can happen is nothing and the best is that you'll increase your business. This will help to keep things fresh and fun.
Keeping motivated may not always be easy. But it's a must if you want to be in your business for the long haul.
Tip of the Day
"How do you set proper goals for yourself in SFI?
Do you know that people with written goals succeed? Most people think that a “goal” has to be something big. Maybe you’ve got the impression that goals need to be about someone else’s idea, or success in some way that society has defined. The average person spends his life living out someone else dreams for so called security. You must know your true calling align your SFI career with your passion.
Do you have a goal set for your day to day SFI business? I make sure that I log in everyday, performing To-Do List, answering emails to my downlines, participating in SFI Forum, posting on Stream post and checking what’s new at TripleClicks.
If you look at the structure of the To-Do List, you can see all the goals classified that we can just follow to achieve our positions as we accumulate the required VersaPoints.
One of the goals that I have set is to become a PTL. To achieve this, I will need to be consistent in sponsoring affiliates, building teams with my downlines. I do need also to continue learning and implementing the tools and resources provided for us.
As my long term goal, I would like to achieve financial freedom by building a solid team, compose of passionate people helping other people to succeed in SFI."
Tip of the Day"I recommend that as an individual you focus on learning and implementing the different types of advertising strategies since advertising is really the lifeblood of your business.
As the leader of a team, I think it is most important that you learn to teach duplication, starting with your first team member so that "one teaching one" is done correctly as your team grows and all will prosper because of it."
