Multi-Level Marketing: Do This Or Quit
Published 5/1/2017 in Christopher Lawrence

Is A Multi Level Marketing (MLM) Business Right For You? Personally, I have previously been a part of two MLM style organizations. They are tough organizations to make a living in and the large majority (more than 95% to 98%) of their salespeople (business owners, reps, consultants – whatever they might be called in that organization) close their business within the first 5 years. What is an MLM? Wikipedia describes it best, “Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called pyramid selling, network marketing, and referral marketing, is a controversial, pyramid-shaped marketing strategy.” There are many challenges with this type of organization, but I am not totally against them. For me, it gave me a taste of selling, marketing and running a business. While in the end it wasn’t for me, it did help me in understanding growth, marketing, rejection, and the importance of repeatability. When is it right? Below are my eight criteria for anyone who is... read more ❯

Where are we spending the best part of our lives?

The best part of our lives is spent at work. When we look back at the age when we first entered the workforce, some of us might have been around fifteen or so.  And when we look forward to retirement, most of us will be around sixty-five.  With that said, that is about fifty years of our lives spent in the workforce. If you are anything like me, you might have worked for a few different companies throughout the years, working with many different people; coworkers, supervisors, managers, and leaders in that time. And each person is unique in who they are and their personalities.  So, how do we connect with each other over the long-haul? How do we find common ground or acceptance of our individual contributions towards a team and corporate culture? We need a way to connect, to understand, and to create happy memories working together within... read more ❯
Chill Out! How To Overcome Burnout
Many of us have had times when we have felt stressed-out, overwhelmed, or maybe even totally burned out. In this article, author Martha Beck shares some awesome insights and tips about stress and burnout – “Left unchecked, burnout can be lethal. So if you’re anywhere between lightly toasted and totally charred, it’s time to chill. Everything you value will benefit as you learn to keep your cool…” You wake up almost as tired as when you fell asleep, four hours ago. After hitting the snooze button twice, you stumble to the kitchen and chug a quart of coffee. It doesn’t help. Your face in the mirror looks like the child you might have had with Voldemort. You can barely squeeze into your last-resort “fat pants.” Getting your kids off to school feels like climbing Everest; driving to the job you once loved, an uphill slog to the salt mines. You dread interacting with... read more ❯
What Is Often Overlooked In Our Office

As the New Year gets underway, most of us plan and make lists of all of the things we’d like to achieve, accomplish or change. But what we don’t often think about is pausing to celebrate when these things have occurred.  It’s so easy to move along quickly to the next thing – the next idea, the next project, the next goal without stopping to really feel and appreciate those great moments. I work with an incredible team of Coaches that, day-in and day-out are driven to help and support their clients.  And I get to see how happy our clients are after a session! With that in mind, I came across an awesome idea from one of my favourite go-to’s – Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love”. She said “Understand that without marking special days through rituals, humans can become lost — to the point where every day, or even every year,... read more ❯

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Phone: 844-910-7111 Email: info@changemylifecoaching.ca   Change My Life Coaching Injects “Love” Into the Workplace CALGARY, AB – February 6, 2017 – At Change My Life Coaching we are thrilled to be joining a global movement called LOVE WEEK! As Valentine’s Day approaches, many lovers are scrambling to find the perfect gift that expresses their love and feelings for their special person.  Several years ago the folks at Mindvalley Academy decided that Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be a day just for lovers and came up with an experiment, which has now turned into a global movement, of injecting love into the workplace. “After all, why shouldn’t the place where we spend the majority of our waking hours be filled with more connection, joy, and happiness?” says Vishen Lakhani, Founder and CEO of Mindvalley.   Studies have shown that better connections at work increases productivity, and the growth of the company improves. When we make love and... read more ❯
The Life and Death of New Year’s Resolutions

As 2017 started you likely got your sights set on all the ways this year would be better. You told yourself you would commit to a new workout plan. You would start eating healthier. You would read more. You would travel. You would finally start that new business. The "New year, new you" mentality took over and January 1 became this magical day of rebirth–until reality set in. A University of Scranton study says that January 15th is the beginning of the end for New Year’s resolutions. By this day as many as 71 percent have given up on the commitment for a new change. Further of their statistics show that by February 9th another 21 percent have dropped off, leaving only 8 percent of all people setting resolutions go on to achieve success. Why do so many people fail to follow through with their resolutions? There are a number of factors... read more ❯
Resumes, Extinct?

Could the traditional resume be dead? That day may be fast approaching. Day after day with my clients, I consistently approach the resume as a minimum standard requirement for the job search. While at the same time, the resume is becoming less and less useless when you are applying against 100 to 400 candidates. Recently, Allison Swelin posted an article on LinkedIn called R.I.P. Resume’s where she said that it’s time for resume’s to go the way of the dodo. Swelin writes, “A resume rarely tells us about the human, even worse is when you get a cover letter that is just a regurgitation of the “job requirements” and they’ve missed the opportunity to share a story with a hook. Often, googling the candidate to find the ‘story’ is more worthwhile.” Truthfully, I don’t completely disagree with Swelin’s assessments; however, it must be made clear that the initiative to kill resumes cannot come... read more ❯
LOVE IS IN THE AIR – Events to Fall In Love For

Most people think of events as big, expensive happenings organized by companies. But there are lots of events to celebrate in your private life as well: weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings… But before you can actually celebrate these, you have to work on your partnership, meaning: Showing your partner your love. In general, I am a supporter of showing love in a partnership every single day and I know that in relationships it is not done with a single symbol of love. However, Valentines Day was and is an important day to underline the love you feel for your partner. Basically you can tackle Valentines Day like any other event: The more effort the donor puts into planning that day, the more the recipient will appreciate it. And another basic event rule also applies to Valentines Day: The event must be fitting for the target person. Meaning: Not everything that is preached by... read more ❯
