About Todd and Leah Rae
What our life looks like today is something we could not have imagined even just a few years ago.
Aside from the great success we've accomplished in our own Network Marketing business, we've coached and trained thousands of others on how to leverage the power of social media to generate leads, and get sales and sign-ups for their home businesses.
We've been recognized in the industry as top trainers, being accepted into MLSP's Master Marketers Team. We've won many awards and have walked the stage at several events.
We've trained thousands, both from on stage and from behind our computers, on how to build a successful business online.
And the cool thing is that we've been able to do all of this from an 80 acre farm out in the middle-of-nowhere Oklahoma with crappy DSL internet service!
But back in June of 2014 when we first joined Network Marketing, things were very different...
Our story starts the same as most other Network Marketers. We started our business thinking that success would come a lot faster and easier than it actually did.
We made the list of 200 friends and family like you’re supposed to, we followed proven invite scripts and set up presentations with as many people as possible, and we did our presentations exactly the way our company taught us...
…and our results fell hopelessly short of our expectations.
Having been rejected by most of our family and friends and hitting a brick wall with our business, we knew that we would have to learn some new skills in order to be successful. So, over the course of about 6 months, we bought several thousands of dollars’ worth of training programs.
They were all very good and we learned a lot from them, but they all seemed to focus on strategies that required us to chase after prospects…whether it was cold market prospecting, prospecting professionals, social media recruiting, etc. we always found ourselves chasing after people who had no interest in being pitched an MLM opportunity.
And while we were experiencing some success with those strategies, it just wasn’t the way we wanted to build our business or live our lives – always having to hunt for new prospects, constantly evaluating everyone in our minds as we talk to them, trying to find just the right moment to ‘pop the question’ and fit it into the conversation…
"We joined Network Marketing so that it could support the lifestyle that we wanted to live, but instead, the exact opposite was happening…we were living a lifestyle we didn’t want to live in order to support our Network Marketing business."
We knew that there must be a better way – a more leveraged way – to build our business.
And that’s when we decided to learn how to build our Network Marketing business online.
Prior to this, we had never built a website or written a blog, we had never used Twitter or Instagram to any meaningful extent, never uploaded a video to YouTube, and we had certainly never run paid advertising on the internet.
But within a few short months, we had absorbed every bit of training on those subjects and more.
And then we took massive action.
Whenever we had any kind of new success (whether it was generating 1 lead a day, generating 5 leads a day, getting our first phone number, getting our first sign-up, etc), we made a point to always look for ways to improve upon what we had accomplished while doing our best to avoid ‘shiny object syndrome’, always staying focused on one or two strategies at a time until we mastered them.
As Bruce Lee once said, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
If there is only one thing we could tell you about how to be successful in this business, it would be this…
There is no more effective way of achieving a high level of success than to connect with the people who are getting the results that you want in your business and to network with them.
Had it not been for the help of other leaders in this industry that we have had the honor of working with and learning from, we would not be where we are today. Every major breakthrough in our business came directly from personally connecting with and learning from the industry's top leaders.
We learned that when you network with leaders, what will happen is that you will grow into a leader. Because that’s what leaders do – they create other leaders.
And once you become a leader that is when your business will gain major momentum and you will see a huge flow of leads, sales, and sign-ups into your business. But you need to become a leader first.
Because while it’s true that people join people (not companies)…it’s even more true that people don’t join desperate, pitchy, salesy people…they join leaders.
If you want to be a top earner in this industry, then you will need to become a leader first. And if you want to become a leader, you will need to connect with other leaders.
