hello everybody this is robert hollis i hope you're having a wonderful and blessed day today's title is should i talk about the product or the business first so knowing me i probably titled it a little different but you know that's a this is a uh a very very unique focus on on how everything happens here and i'm gonna share with you exactly what i was taught my first answer believe it or not is both uh but i'm gonna explain that so i'm waiting for people to see me live here there's my incredible wife terry thank you sweetheart for jumping on here hi jennifer uh see who else uh hey matthew hey my incredible son uh thanks for the family support you guys uh hi uh dustin ilona peter melody hey scott kloss there the reacher hey kai hi ben all right so i'm going to go ahead and get started here when a lot of people get involved in a a home based product no wait a minute wait a minute i'm messed up when people get involved in a home-based business i think you guys already see where i'm coming from right but listen i totally get it i totally get it why i i watched a gary verniche video today uh and this morning and he was talking about you know that the school sets us up for failure because you know we go through a quarter and then what we do is we get grades and then we go through three months and we go through grades and we go through three months and we get grades and it's like you know we should actually be paying attention to daily daily um results in income daily income instead of quarterly but then you get out in the corporate world and what do they do they examine you based on your quarterly reports right so if you got three months you could have two months that are good and one bad month and not have a good quarterly report and then bingo you failed so you know today it was funny i was having a conversation with my my new friend angel casa he's a 15-year veteran uh in network marketing and uh we're he's he's making a decision to come on board with us and really go uh bananas with this so you guys watch out for him on the leaderboard but me and him got in this discussion and i'm gonna share with you guys why i do the business the way i do it first of all a lot of people don't know about my first two weeks in network marketing and my first two weeks that i got involved in network marketing i always talk about the presentation and that i seen it it made sense to me and and how my mentor uh got me to uh get involved in it but the first right after that he was lived in san diego and he left and went back to san diego he did a presentation in downtown l.a the one wilshere building the presentation that changed my life and got me to see something different other than working a job and when i seen his income and i seen the simplicity and i understand that we were cutting out the middleman and that if i introduce people to him and referred people to him that he was going to teach these people and then i could actually earn an income off a lot of people a lot a lot of people is mike miramoto on here really oh my god he's like uh he's like incredible and he's spying on me [Laughter] hi mike hi melody hi laurie hi kai ms uh lisa uh some awesome people on here thank you so much and so bill and one of the things that that really got me is so i i started selling the product why because i'm a consumer all i do is make money take that money go buy things okay that work money the friday get a paycheck deposit it go buy things work all week get paid on friday go buy things now some of those would be utilities and bills and stuff like that but we're consumers right and one of the things is so when i got the company and they showed the product and it was a water filter and it was like oh my god look at you can take coca-cola and dump it in this filter and it comes out water oh my god you know and then they taught us all this technical stuff and all this you know in things about you know i still can remember one pound of granular activated carbon has the same absorbance absorption rate as 66 football fields and that it would take all the contaminants out of the water and you guys don't forget i'm analytical because i'm an automotive engineer fancy name for auto mechanic and so what i would do is i would learn this information i'm not a sales type i i'm i'm a a geek right so i would learn this stuff and i'd walk up to people and i'd say hey you don't drink tap water do you [Music] and people go yeah i do why well you sure don't give this to your children see why not immediately make someone feel stupid that that is a great place to start why not to eat teach people and start out by being uh letting them know that they don't know something that they're not educated that they're not aware this is a really great way to to build you know walk up to people and get a little off track you know man you still don't have a job do you uh you just didn't get a degree in college and now you can't use it how stupid are you you're not using that stupid cbd and and so when i first got in that was what i was doing i was talking to angel and you know both of us at door knock in fact my eldest son still door knocks or solar and and it's like you go out there and you knock on doors and hey listen you know i'd like you so i started not using that but when i said technical stuff i would say stuff like you know did you know that ralph nader did a report on our water and it's not so good and and you know so this this water filter takes out you know uh 213 known chemicals in the water and they would say to me like which ones you know and oh my god now i got to pull out a piece of paper and and do all this and they said so does it take all the chemicals out of the water and i go well unfortunately it doesn't and they go is there a filter now that you educated me about my water and you made me aware is there a better product than yours on the market unfortunately yes and what happened is water and air filters went through a trend it's funny the company that i was with called nsa national safety associates do you know that they sold the water and air division and they now call themselves juice plus and they no longer market air and water filters because see when you put all your effort into and all your focus in on a product what if that product changes what if that product discontinues so i want to tell you guys a short story about a guy named richard branson richard branson is a not only a multi-multi-billionaire owns hundreds and hundreds of hundred million dollar companies and you know virgin mobile and you know virgin airlines now virgin cruise line i used to start out virgin records right so he owns the virgin brand and one time an a a reporter seen him sitting in an airport and he walked up to him and he said can i ask you some questions and he said sure and he said so how do you become a billionaire and he goes i know the answer to that and it's it's this one if anyone tells you it's not this they're lying it's wisdom you become successful based on wisdom and then the journalist and reporter looked at him and said so where do you get wisdom from and he said making mistakes which most people are scared to make mistakes most people are scared to fail right and so what we do is if you're a non-sales type and then you go out and like the video that i talked about yesterday duplication you can go to robert hollis.com forward slash steps or just go to youtube and put in robert hollis and seek for that i've been trying to do a video a day i don't know what video i'm on but um you know i there's a lot of videos in there where i talk about different subjects to help you be the best that you can be in any business right so there's a lot of companies for whatever reason that that they just say that their products the best and that it's got a patent on it it's got all this scientific stuff blah blah blah blah blah and guess what i actually got good at actually getting people to buy the product but then there's something that i messed up on i then would say them hey listen would you be interested in getting involved in the business and their answer was always no and the reason that it was no is they did not want to remember or they did not have the excitement the enthusiasm the the courage the confidence the posture working on self-development to be able to lead with the product with that kind of conviction are you guys hearing me and so they would go no no no no no i'm not a sales person i go i'm not a salesperson they go yes you are you sold me and i said no i just made you aware of a bunch of information and you made a great decision for you and your family and they're going i i i'm not doing that i'm not doing that so a lot of you might have brought people in by leading and talking about the product first but then how good are they at doing what you're doing right so i'm not going to get off track because the video duplication in the other videos talk about this so i was taught so i'm working two weeks i'm going door-to-door i'm putting up these little boxes so to win a free trip to las vegas that's where i was getting my leads at 7-elevens and and little mom-and-pop uh grocery places and liquor places so that i could get the leads and i would call the lead set of the appointment and then i'd go over and i would test their water with orthotolodine like you do a poll i'd show them that you know there was uh chlorine in the water and that they need this they needed this filter right now i was getting good at selling the product but no one wanted to do what i was doing some of you will get it and if you don't that's okay so i was about ready to quit the business was i making money yes i was was i making a fortune like jim rohan said no i was not so my whole income didn't do this residual thing do you know that you get five and then that five gets 25 and then that five gets 125 and then that was five get one twenty five that's 625 and you add them all up and they all do a little bit of business and you make this incredible residual income i had people in my group that i got upfront money on a jump start but i didn't have any residual and why is because i was not a sales type but i was trying to be a sales type and when i shared this much information with people and another video i talked about this lady told me i did a perfect presentation that was the best she's ever seen but she wasn't going to get in because the presentation lasted too long ah in a world where we have people that have eight second attention spans so i was about to quit and some of you heard my story i'll i'll briefly tell it where my upline basically told me seven generations if i didn't go to this national convention that they weren't gonna work with me anymore so i know they just wanted me to see the big picture i went there i seen all these people and there's this one guy that spoke broken english uh from the middle east and and it just blew me away that this guy had broken english but yet he was one of the top positions in the company and so i waited for him to get off stage and i walked up to him and i said listen could you please help me i congratulations on your success it's just amazing uh could you please show me how to do this business and that's when i heard the business side all right and he said to me he says listen i walk up to people and again no internet no cell phone so we're doing this face to face to people he said i walk at the people and say listen i have a question for you and they go sure and he goes you want to make money yes no and i went is that all you say to people he said yeah my mentor told me to say as little as possible to as many people as i can as fast as i can because that builds momentum you'll always find the right people at the right time in their life if you just are willing to go through the numbers and i went hang on hang on hang on you know skeptical skeptical skeptical and um i said uh well what if they ask you a question like what is the product or what's the company name or you know what what is this he says i look at them and i said there's no reason to talk about that if you won't answer my question first do you want to make money yes no and i said okay okay yes and he goes great because i'm going to introduce you to my money person and back back then he said money man and he says i'm gonna energy to jeff which ended up being my above leader and he says i'm gonna introduce you to jeff he's been in the company for x amount of time he's made x amount of money he knows all the answers i'm so blessed and honored to be working directly with him and i said oh okay and he says so who's your money man and i went um i don't have one and he says great call the company on monday and with us we can log in our back office and see who our upline is and he said call the company on monday and leave a message for your upline super affiliate leave a message for your upline master and reach out to them and ask them if you can learn from them and and focus on doing the business because if you focus on leading with the business you'll make a fortune if you leave with the product the product could change and you no longer have a business okay so you know and and i just went okay i did that bill called me i drove all the way down to san diego slept in my car and and worked with him for a couple of days he actually was doing a training there and he said robert you walk up to people say hi my name's robert i was wondering if you could help me out and when they say sure what can i do for you or they might not answer say i'm expanding a business and we're looking for quality people and we're running ads in newspapers and magazines and we can't find the quality people that we would need would you do me a huge favor i'd love to get your telephone number i can give you a call when you get home and i can set up a time to introduce you you know to my money man i didn't say money man i just said bill gould and what he's done and da da da da da and and and he said so you get people in front of the video he says robert if you get people in front of the business there's only three three things they're gonna do one i'm not interested i don't know anybody no thank you the other person that is consumer minded will go you know i i i need to know a little more about the product oh excellent because now that i'll show you how to create a free account and now that you've done that let me show you what what one of the out of the nine brands and the 300 plus products that we have in the company i think i should just say hundreds now hundreds because even with my daily choice we change and move products when i first got involved with mdc you know we had cbd in canada canada's government changed their laws and then we no longer could market cbd in canada there was big canadian leaders that totally lost all of their income but it got weirder it was all the commonwealth countries so australia and new zealand and because all these people were focused on cbd cbd cbd and then it wasn't available in there they're immediately out of business does it just happen to mdc no it happens virtually in every company so i used to be with a company that marketed long distance then it went from 25 cents to 15 cents the 10 cents the 5 cents to free with cereal overnight the millions of customers that i acquired now they were getting being charged less for the product the volume dropped and now i'm getting pennies on a customer then they just eliminated long distance and so well wait a minute wait a minute i'm not i built this millions of customers off long distance and now we don't have long distance anymore no because everyone's offering it for free in their cell package it's just now included now they do voice over internet protocol so the company i work for changed the voice over internet protocol and was selling video phones video phone you could buy a video phone 200 bucks for you and then you could buy one for the people that you love you know so you could communicate over video conferencing and you had to pay for a month and then a company come out called skype and you could visually see people for nothing you know how much facebook charges me a month to do these videos for you nothing so that that product disappears uh i was in a company that sold juice exotic fruit juice right it was called tahitian noni and the company in 10 years went to a billion dollars then overnight guess what they changed the formulation of the product and the leaders found out about it whoops they all left the product wasn't doing so i'm just saying when you really really focus on the product what if you could think like a business owner so i talked about the three types again right so it's the first person that says not the right timing no thank you i have no friends i don't want to do anything the second group that says you know what you know i i gotta believe in the product we have nine different brands we'll continue to add brands and let me explain to you guys a quick thing to say about brands are any of you familiar familiar with cbs you got mbc abc and then cbs right are you familiar with espn yes well guess what they are owned by disney disney is the mothership and they have brands underneath them do you guys understand this some people get really confused by this concept but you know if you're if you're if you're general motors general motors then you have a line called chevy you have a line called gm you have a line called cadillac and in each one of those you have simple products so under chevy you can have a camaro you can have a corvette are you guys getting this so when people first get in they get oh oh i'm confused that's a fast way to say well if you heard of espn and and cbs if you want to take it one step lower what is a program why do they call it programs another video but what is a show that people would know on cbs ah have you heard a survivor by the way i don't know if that's on that channel have you heard of the show survivor yeah i've heard a survivor well you know they're on cbs yes i know that did you know cbs is owned by disney so business mentality thinks different so people will say well you know i i need to try the products out well we currently have nine brands we consistently expand uh like disney you know with cbs and and espn and under each one of those we have hundreds of products which one are you interested in well i don't know well let's create your free account like you did with amazon and once you create that free account you can go to the shopping cart and find which products that you would like to try with the 60 60-day money-back guarantee are you guys catching this so there are people that that will need in their mind they will believe that they have to do research on the product they got to see the ingredients they gotta you know go through all of this stuff and because they can't do the business unless they believe in the product right and me i know the products get great testimonials i know the products are consistently buying because my paycheck reflects that then you got the other person that goes now wait a minute are you telling me that people replace their income by referring people to this company yes my wife and i have made over 3.6 million dollars we currently override 19 000 customers and affiliates that purchase the product each and every month because they love it oh my god freedom lifestyle leave my job work anywhere wow that's what i would like to see so i lead with the the opportunity i business i lead with the free affiliate like netflix and amazon these other apple these trillion dollar companies trillion dollar companies trillion dollar companies they lead with a free subscription get the know like and trust you and then share with you a bunch of promotions and stuff that now allow you to be able to update to amazon prime or maybe you'll update to youtube premium so you know you you're in a position where you uh you know get uh commercial free uh videos i hope you guys are getting my point so my first response is should i lead with the product or should i lead with the business it all depends on what your long-term goal is my long-term goal was wow if this guy's making 700 000 a year i don't have to be as good as him but i'd like to make six figures a year because money doesn't buy happiness but neither does poverty and i wanted to make money and build a cash flow and me and angel are the same way you guys you guys will crack up what angel said to me he says i try to explain to my children that what you do what you do is a way to freedom is cash flow to a freedom and he says robert if someone walked up to me and said listen angel i'm going to pay you 20 grand a month with all these bonuses but you're gonna have to clean toilets i need you to clean 20 toilets a day and you're going to pay me this for me and my family i'm cleaning toilets and he goes we got one more incentive what is that i've never heard this story before angel i just love it he says listen if you clean them with your bare hands and and and and not you know use any gloves will pay you an additional five dollars per toilet no problem and when angels said that to me that's my mentality do the products have to work yes they do but the companies are going to continue to move products and change products and so all you got to do is change your formulation with the product or discontinue a product you know because it's just people are not buying it as soon as you take that product away from people all these people start crying and whining it's like yeah but you know i had all these people on it and and and they're alive they say they're alive because of this product oh my god how am i gonna tell my people me i treat this like a franchise and if i was marketing you a mcdonald's franchise sometimes mcdonald's makes the decision to do the mcrib sandwich and they come out with the promotion and they do all the commercials the mick ribs back the mick ribs back the big ribs back there's people like my wife and i are just like gee whiz seriously greasy ribs on a sandwich and there are other people that just go bananas why do you think it's not on the menu all the time my wife yelled out it's disgusting her opinion so if you're a rib lover i'm sorry but they do it because it's not a product that can sustain yearly sales it's got to be a promotion to put in and then bring back and then put out and bring back you see what i mean so the people that are mcrib lovers can you imagine saying this to somebody i robert hollis said that he owns a bunch of mcdonald's restaurants and he was going to give me one of them and guess guess what it nets 240 000 a year net profit and he's gonna give it to me and the person said to you because their consumer mentality they don't have the right thinking they look at you and you go listen they stop selling the mcrib and i wouldn't buy that i wouldn't take that franchise and you get people to say this they mean it i if if he gave it to me i wouldn't take it because they discontinued the mcrib sandwich oh my god so you want to think as a business mentality and when you share people with the business and they are consumer minded instead of business mentality you got to let them come in and maybe they just focus on the products and focus on the products until they realize that their income goes up and then down up and then down up and then down and they go robert i'm tired of building it it disappears i'm tired of having a whole group of unmotivated people because you taught them to be educated technical sales people did you guys hear that tina said shimrock shake the double decker taco with taco bell you guys are getting this hola ed uh ben lisa kai yeah i'm telling you guys you guys are getting this so you know people listen to me and they say well robert do you just lead with the business yes i just lead with the business unfortunately listen closely unfortunately 97 of the people on the planet are smarter than me they're way smarter than me so they get in the company and they go you know what i'm going to focus on body meld i okay okay and they'll even say to me what do you think robert i was thinking about leading with the the sprays i was thinking about leading with the dog treats i was thinking about leading with hemp clothing i was thinking about focusing on hair care okay uh how's that working for you so do i have customers yeah i have more customers than affiliates what's so far this month is the 15th halfway through the month i still have more customers than affiliates so i do both but i lead with lifestyle i want to encourage somebody to get excited to introduce me to people that are business-minded people did you catch that and if they're not business mentality then they can do the product and you just pray every day that their level of awareness steps up to go you know what i keep leading with the product and and and my group does nothing and then i keep leading with the product my group does nothing and then i keep leading with the product and because 95 of people are not sales type and and yeah and then you get burnt out and then you stop doing it so your team stops doing it how many people do you guys know of right now that are looking for a way to beat inflation how many of you know that people that got used to working out of their home that now that this pandemic is no longer there or it's gotten less that now people are being called back to work uh maybe they said i sort of like working at home getting up when i want having freedom that's the people i'm looking for so when people all the time say robert what's the very best product that mdc has it's their marketing system it's their compensation plan that's the number one product why do people buy mcdonald's franchises because they love the chicken nuggets now people that i know that own 10 franchises they don't eat at mcdonald's [Laughter] they eat at ruth chris so i hope that helped you guys again i know that sometimes this stuff just you know my mentor changed it with me i needed you guys to know that i started out selling the product because that's the natural i thought that's the way you did it i seen people sell cars i've seen people sell insurance i seen people sell real estate i was going to be a product salesperson until i met someone that made me more aware got it and then i thought wow i need to be duplicatable see he's the one that told me robert stop doing things that work only do what's duplicatable everything that you do has to run through a filter can i get other people to do this not can i teach them because there's a lot of people teaching a lot of stuff in this industry it's just that their people are not doing what they taught them why wouldn't someone do what you taught them simple uh i ain't doing that i'm not walking up to people going you know you're using the worst cbd in the world and ours is the best our our ours is the best and then people run into someone they say no no no because the last thing i'll share with you like i shared with angel you know i grew up and a lot of people got mad at me i moved out to california i did research to find out what mechanics made the most money in the state of california and it was mechanics that work for toyota now i got a lot of relatives at robert you can't work for a foreign company you know it's general motors ford chrysler i'm going i'm working for toyota oh my god why because their vehicles are so well made that people don't know that when you work under warranty if a car comes in under warranty you get half your hourly rate because you're working for the company and toyota didn't have vehicles that came in under warranty so that's why the mechanics were making more money so i'm i'm sort of selfish in a way that if i would work for one of these companies and then work for this company and they would pay me double if not triple now i know where i'm going and believe it or not that's why i picked mdc i have yet to find a more lucrative compensation plan so if i do a million in volume with one company and they pay me 300 000 a year and then i do a million with mdc and they pay me six figures a year a month that ends up being over a million a year that's that's a no-brainer this company right now pays two to three times more than any other company i've been involved in and they don't have the marketing system and people don't are not allowed to get in for free and earn money so they can work their way up the ranks they don't have a free mobile app that's why i'm here josh and jenna are just icing on the cake my incredible team is more icing on the cake me terry and i can do this alone each and every one of you that help within our organization and you know when the tide comes up all boats go up so i believe in you i know you can do this if we did it you can do it if no one's giving you permission to succeed in life let me be the first i'll see you tomorrow on the next video take care and god bless
