My Goals for September 2017

In the month of September, I am really going to get after it.  I found a new affiliate program that I am promoting.  It’s not a MLM Company.  It’s designed to help people get leads and train them how to build their MLM Business online.  I will spend 90% of my business hours promoting this affiliate program.  My goal is to generate 1,000 leads and make 50 sales with this program in September.

My Blog

My Primary MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 4 new affiliates
  • Generate 200 new leads in my auto-responder
  • Publish 20 videos
