In my introductory welcome letter to my CSAs, I define what a co-sponsor is, why they have one, and explain what the duties of the co-sponsor are. I tell them to first go to their sponsor and then their upline when they are having problems or questions, but to come to me if they get no response or they are still having questions on the subject.

Then a few days later, after giving the CSA time to respond to my welcome, I will look to see if he is progressing with his To-Do List and to see

I just had an AHA! moment. The question is not asking how you present the ECA program, but it does ask how you describe TripleClicks to prospective participants in the ECA program.

They want to know what it is, what's in it for them, what they will get out of it, what it costs, what they have to do, and will it be worth their time. But their first question will be what is it?

In the past, I have gone to great lengths and costs to promote the ECA program. I bought the TC business

Our responsibility as a sponsor, or co-sponsor, is not to force a relationship with our affiliates, but to offer to be there whenever they feel the need to call on us for help. We must be perfectly plain when we tell them how we can help them, that this is their business and, though we offer advice that has been handed down for 17 years, it is still their freedom to go their own way as long as they keep to the agreement they have with SFI. Give them some space.

I have found that we have

We all know that what ever we do today will matter tomorrow or later on in the future. It will matter for the better, or the worse. It may seem to not matter today, but just like the jack hammer on the block of cement, eventually the effect will become known. The spectators get throbbing headaches, the block crumbles and is easily removed with shovels.

Our work at SFI seems to never take a turn for success. We advertise, sponsor, write letters, reassign, send e-cards, write more letters,

You have to play the game to start the process . Once you have played the game and your score is recorded, you will click the tab to invite your friends and family to play. You will be given a link for them to get to the challenge game. You may give them this link in any ethical way you can think of, social media, email (not spamming), lipstick on the bathroom mirror, business cards, ads.

In order to play, they must have TCrdits. Therefore they have to buy them. Before they buy, they must

A new affiliate will do well to get a good understanding of SFI and how to make really good money before he begins to actually work the business. For some the training period is only a few short days, for others it will take longer.

What is good money? It certainly is not the tiny amount one earns from the training vp. This first payment should be regarded as training also. From receiving it, you will see where to find your commissions, and how to use the chart. It also shows that you

You can not be a good team leader while having low self esteem unless you "fake it until you make it." People don't follow losers and who knows better than you if you are a loser. Or so the thoughts go. Give your team something that will indicate that you have confidence in yourself.

If you need to, until you are assured that you understand what SFI is all about, and how to teach duplication, advertising, sponsoring, etc., use the helpful samples given at the PSA and CSA

I don't understand why you are singling out the cost of products at TripleClinks, blaming world economics, and allowing your affiliate to be discouraged.Your affiliates are affected by world economy every place they shop.

World economics is a very big subject. Every single manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, vendor, consumer, laborer, advertising venue, supplier, utility provider , and every other provider has a part in shaping world economics. Your affiliates are affected by world economy

You can advertise TripleClicks products just about everywhere you can advertise for affiliates, and even more places than that. There are more than one aspect of TC to advertise: the global shopping mall approach, the collections, the individual products, the auctions, the games, and the opportunities: W3, ECA, and free membership.

The number of products and possible collection combinations are beyond our comprehension. Be creative and smart when you narrow your choices of the

Whoa! What's with the A-L-L-O-W? Allow, and what happens if it doesn't happen? You're going to let time pass, and if enough times passes and you don't see an income, you'll quit? How much income are you looking for? How much time will you allow?

There is nothing in building a SFI/TC business that allows you to wait passively for something to happen.You have to be aggressive in doing your work. Every day. Train. Lead. Duplicate. Advertise. Refer. Sponsor. Without doing these consistently,
