Last night’s showing of La La’s Full Court Life was a thrilling recount of La La Anthony’s experiences from the 2012 Market America World Conference in Miami – featuring the debut of Motives for La La! If you missed last night’s show – don’t worry! There are many more opportunities to catch this special episode on VH1 throughout the month of May.
While we love to see these numbers, because it means our UFOs are tapping into a wonderful, easy (AND FREE!) tool to market their business, the stats still tell us that plenty of you are not using twitter to its full advantage!
Common arguments from those opposed to “tweeting”:
“I don’t have the time for another social media site.” This is absolutely not an excuse, especially for our distributors. The minimal investment of time compared to the exponential opportunities for growth and client interaction are amazing. Read More

Every few days, I get an email from my retired stepfather. A normal person’s parents would email them, telling them about the goings-on of their now VERY OPEN schedule, talking about what’s new, maybe a movie they saw or some improvements they’ve made to the house, and then ask what I’ve been up to. But not mine. No, my stepdad combs the Huffington Post, the New York Times, and others for articles on issues he strongly disagrees with (or, on occasion, agrees with), pastes the link in an email, and types a solid 500-1000 word email worthy of any Op-Ed page. He sends it off to about 12 recipients (which include me, my sister, two stepbrothers, his mother, his best friend, and a few ex-coworkers), and then the discourse begins. Read More
Time is money, and whether it’s yours or someone else’s, it’s valuable. That being said, you’re not at your most effective when you’re constantly focusing on tasks without stepping away. It used to be that when we left our jobs, we were done working, but that’s just not the case anymore.
You may not have the time to unplug, unwind, take a week’s walk through the Pyrenees or even a two-hour candlelit bath, but if you have seven minutes, you have enough of a break to make a difference.
-Mini-meditation: sit comfortably, and breathe in slowly. Hold it for four counts, release it for four counts, and breathe in again for four counts. Read More
The last few weeks for me have been inspiring, productive and fun. As we continue to grow our UnFranchise® business together, it has been great to meet and get to know our new friends and business partners. We continue to attract entrepreneurs in different parts of the United Kingdom and I am looking forward to returning at the end of this month. We will continue with the momentum and energy we have created with some of the best in the business this week in London at the upcoming UBP.
As the level of participation in social media skyrockets, the lines between “business” and “personal” have become blurred. While this sounds negative and scary, for the most part, it’s a good thing. Market research is showing that consumers enjoy interacting with a brand on a personal level, and often posts of a more personal level (behind-the-scenes pictures, pictures or posts of what the business leader or celebrity is up to that isn’t necessarily stuffy or business-related) tend to resound better with an audience. For example, a post by Martha Stewart plugging one of her new kitchen products might get a few retweets or comments, but a picture of her AKC Champion Chow Chow rolling in the grass might get thousands of likes.

As the newest member of the social media bunch over here at Market America, I’m still pretty green. I haven’t been to a conference or convention yet; I’ve only just heard The Plan, and I actually haven’t even met Loren or JR yet (see you in August?). Since this whole International Convention business is completely new to me, the social media team thought I would offer the most interesting perspective as we launch full-on into #MAIC2012!
From now through the end of the convention, I’ll be offering my observations and general take on things, as seen through the eyes of someone behind the scenes for the first time.
Today, the social media team met to start our “plan of attack” for the convention. Read More
