Created & Updated My Personal Audio Blog

27 09 2009

Hello All,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend on this sunny Sunday afternoon we are having over here on the  east coast.

I’ll keep it short for today as to I want to get back outside and enjoy whats left of this beautiful day we’re having.

… So, just a quick update for now:

Over  the  past  few months, I’ve been testing several different blog platforms in an attempt to  find the most feature-rich, and user-friendly options available.   In doing so I’ve  ended up with several blog sites.  In an effort not to have  the  exact same content on each of  them,  I recently changed and updated one of them to an AUDIO ONLY blog site.

You can check it out and bookmark  it at: http://AudioBlog.BenjaminKee.com.

Take a listen and let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

Also, please take the quick survey that I created on the right-hand column of the audio blog and tell me the topics that you would like to hear more about and I’ll do just that …. Create more audio posts discussing exactly what YOU want to learn on.

I hope you find it useful and informative.

Until next time,

Ben

PS.  Now get outside and have some fun! 😉

The Entrepreneurial Mindset

17 09 2009

An entrepreneurial mindset is described by a conglomerate of meta-physical dispositions, also known as entrepreneurial spirit, meant to cause the innovative and energetic practice to identify or create an opportunity and take action aimed at realizing it. The philosophical themes – existentialism, axiology, pragmatism, ethics – are thereby understood to be strange attractors influencing the construction of the entity’s persona as well as the concrete practices of the entity (Figure 1).

Figure 1:Conceptual Model of Philosophical Components of an Entrepreneurial Mindset (Senges 2007)

 

Composite Mindset Philosophy

Important for entrepreneurship is the “creative mindset” (Faltin, 2007) that helps entrepreneurs to create new ideas and bring these to the market in a way appropriate to create value for an external audience. Psychological research highlights that true creativity comes not from the kind of area in which one is active but whether one can conceive of something that is both “new and appropriate” (Amabile, 1996). In this way, a entrepreneurial mindset is a philosophy by which individuals engage in creative acts regardless of the type of work they are engaged in. Thus, the entrepreneurial mindset might exist in cooking just as well as web-2 innovating, it is the philosophy and the action it generate that counts – not the context.

This can be contrasted to a “managerial mindset” which deals with creating order and efficiency through controlling, evaluating, and administrating practices (Sarasvathy, Simon and Lave, 1998). An entrepreneurial mindset is distinct from ‘entrepreneurial cognitions’ in that the former signify a philosophy of personal identity and values whereas the latter signify a group of heuristics or decision-making tools that entrepreneurs use to evaluate and exploit business opportunities. An entrepreneurial mindset is also distinct from Entrepreneurial orientation (EO) which is a collective identity in young entrepreneurial firms that fosters innovativeness, pro-activeness and risk-taking among participants in the firm (Lumpkin and Dess, 1996).

The philosophic codification of the mindset of an entrepreneur follows what Durkheim felt to be the achievement of modernity: “The possibility to dynamically differentiate and elaborate values” (Welsch, 1998). Thereby, as is customary in life-philosophy, the creative and initiative aspects meant to create meaning are given central stage in a holistic (or totalitarian) approach. Peter Sloterdijk elaborates on the role of philosophy : “Philosophy is stylizing the human being with the practice of terminological gene-technology (‘begrifflicher gentechnologie’), thereby developing new taxonomies of human existence” (Sloterdijk, 1999). He further explains that philosophy creates meta-physical concepts of human beings and their condition, which serve as archetypical development paradigms when perceived and internalized. One example given by Sloterdijk, is Freud’s creation, or the meta-physical engineering of the Oedipus complex. The proposed philosophical model of an entrepreneurial mindset is meant to contribute such a typology.

The System Works … IF You Work The System

25 03 2006

So people ask me, “Ben, how is it that you have personally sponsored over 60 people into your business in less than 45 days; all of whom have purchased product and are duplicating?”

What I tell them is that I use the system and I teach all of my people to do the same … to use the system.

Why? Because systems are duplicatable, but people are not. We are all different. We all act different, we all think different, we all have different personalities, different modes of communication, and different styles of promoting. But the system never changes from one person to the next. The system never discriminates from one person to the next. The system never changes in its underlying theme and message that it drives across to our potential business partners. The system is duplicatable, whereas we, as unique and varying human beings are not.

So what is the system you ask? The system is so simple, so duplicatable that it can be summed up into a few simple steps; a few steps so simple that anyone can do them regardless of their background, education, or age! Regardless if you are a seasoned veteran or brand new to this wonderful industry of network distribution!

(by the way, if your mlm doesn’t have a system in place, my advice to you is, you had better create one NOW or find a company that has one already in place … your success in this industry depends upon it)


The system I use on a day in and day out basis is:

Step 1: I Invite my guests or potential business partners to listen to a recorded 2 minute overview.

Step 2: I Invite my guests or potential business partner to one of our live National business presentation conference calls.

Step 3: I do a 3 way with my guest and my sponsor or someone in my upline to answer any questions that my guest might have and for validation. From time to time, I also do 3 ways on a conference bridge in a group setting. When wanting to validate the business and opportunity to several people at a time; this is one of the fastest ways to build and create group momentum.

The steps I am outlining are nothing new, this type of simple system has been around in the industry for years, but that in and of itself should tell you something … IT WORKS! Less is always more and the simpler you keep it, the better.


Tip: One of the keys to remember is to always edify your upline or whomever you are introducing your guest to. Tell that person’s “success story” or background to your guest before the introduction. This will make your upline’s job much easier … which is to assist you and your potential business partner in getting your new business up and running in the right direction as fast as possible.

Step 4: Repeat the process and teach all new business partners to do the same.

That’s it you ask? You bet. Is it that simple? Absolutely! It is just a matter of a few simple steps, sticking to those steps, and teaching all of your people to do the same. Then repeating the process as often and as fast as possible … spinning the wheel so to speak or filling the pipeline.

In Summary: Remember to talk to as many people as you can as fast as you can; before someone else gets them in to the business. Give your prospect a few bullet points and then walk them through the system. Stay consistent and be persistent. Put your blinders on, your head down, and run with it! Do 3 – 90 day blitzes of concentrated efforts and your new business, as well as your income, will sky rocket!

In Closing: I honestly believe and know without a doubt, that what I am sharing with you flat out works. These few simple steps, if followed and worked diligently; will bring you the freedom and success you’re looking for! The only question is … how committed are you to designing the life you know you deserve? Are you willing to do what it takes?

If your answer is YES, then I look forward to seeing
YOU on the beaches of the world!

To COLD Call or NOT to COLD Call..?

20 03 2006

Hello friends and fellow entrepreneurs,

Are you tired of chasing your warm market about your business opportunity, products or services?

Are you tired of smiling and dialing and cold calling lead lists, only to find that they didn’t want your call in the first place and you wasted your hard earned money?

Then STOP. There’s better way!

Would you like to get your phone ringing off the hook with new prospects WHO CALL YOU and already want what you have to offer (all without having to make a single cold call)?

That’s a No-BRAINER huh?

Of course you would!

No, I’m Not talking about “Gold Calling” Lol.

No, Im not talking about “Phone Power” (Again, Lol) or any other auto-dialing gimmick.

What I am speaking of is the actual ACT of utilizing one the Most IMPORTANT, But NOT TALKED ABOUT “Secrets” of The Network Marketing Industry to date…

I’ve posted an audio for your review

Are You FREE or Only Seem To Be?

20 02 2006

Take the short questionnaire and discover how YOU CAN BE … with just a few hours of your flexible time each week, and within a relatively short amount of time!

  • Do you have multiple streams of income flowing into your life?
  • Do you get paid multiple times for every hour you work?
  • Are your hourly earnings potentially unlimited?
  • Do your income streams flow 24 hours a day with or without you?
  • Do you own or control these streams of income?
  • Will your income streams continue to flow after you die?
  • Can you give yourself a raise any time you want?
  • If your main income stream dries up, could you survive for a year without income?

If you answered no to any one of these questions, we can help solve that once and for all!

There might just be a “PLAN B” you may not have known even existed … UNTIL NOW.

I’m serious, if you don’t feel the freedom of life that you believe you and your family truly deserve, then let’s do something about it now … before it is too late!

Let me ask you … Would you donate a few hours of your time each week to your future happiness? Would you CHOOSE to do something about your current cirvumstances if you’re not quite satisfied with the way things are in your life right now?

Do you ever find yourself thinking … “If I could just find a better way” … “I know there has got to be a better way?”

Well I’m here to tell you there IS a better way! There IS a “Plan B” and it is closer than you think!

Let me ask you this… If you knew you could legitimately be earning $2,000 to $3,000 a week and within a relatively short amount of time; would that affect your life, your family life, or maybe your time-freedom for the better?

If your answer is “yes,” then contact me right away at 864-610-0376 and let’s discuss the possibilities of life without limits.

If your answer is “no,” then I wish you well.  Continue doing what you’ve always done.
The choice is your’s, but remember… YOU ALWAYS DO HAVE A CHOICE.
