August 2015 Month in Review for My MLM Blog and MLM Business

Here is my month in review for August 2015 for my blog and my MLM Business.  I post my results each month on my website to stay accountable to myself and to show you the power of being persistent and consistent in your home business.

My Business Goals for August 2015

Here were my goals for August 2015.  I have them broken down into three categories: one for my blog, one for my MLM Business and my personal goals.  I believe that setting clear, written goals is very important if you want to be successful.

Professional & Personal

  • Read 5 books
  • Lose 18 pounds
  • T25 Workout with Rachel entire month


  • Publish 40 new blog posts
  • Publish 40 podcasts
  • Leave 20 blog comments on other blogs

MLM Company

  • Grow team by 50 people

My Daily Mode of Operation for August 2015:

This was my daily game plan to build my business in August:

  • Publish one new blog post every day, Monday through Friday
  • Publish one podcast per day, Monday through Friday
  • Revise one old blog post every day
  • Post 3-5 updates in my Facebook Mastermind Group every day
  • Send training email to my list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Follow up with new leads daily by phone, SKYPE or email every day
  • Mail out two hand written notes every day
  • Read for 20 minutes per day
  • Exercise daily (except Saturdays)
  • Call 1-2 team members every day

*** On average, this takes me about two hours per day to accomplish!

  1. As always, it looks like August had been a successful month for you.

    But I’m wondering how it takes you only two hours to complete all those tasks in your to-do list. I know, a lot can be done in two hours, but that’s not the case for me (most of the time). Though I admit I have time management issues and I’m working on it (not to mention, I’m getting a bit better at it everyday..).


  2. What I love is that you share your personal and professional goals with us, because often the two are linked. If I am a better person within myself then I will perform better as a professional. I also love how honest you are about where you succeeded and where you fell short. We are all human and realistically we won’t get every single thing on our list right on the first go. As long as we have the maturity to see where we fell short and a plan for how to get where we want to be, we really haven’t failed at all.

  3. As I look at your overall numbers Charles, I must say BRAVO!

    Yes, you may have been short in some areas, but all in all, the numbers are reading great!.

    You mentioned it being weird about the same blog posts being on the list every month. Personally, I would say that it all comes down to your keywords and phrases. Are visitors coming via search engines?If so, it is probably the keys, but the other possibility is back links. If those posts are linked elsewhere, they may be visiting from there. It may be some statistics you may want to look at.

    Just a thought.

    • About 70% of my traffic is from the search engines and most of the visitors on those pages are all from the search engines, except my home page.
