January 2016 Month in Review for My MLM Business and MLM Blog

Here is my month in review for January 2016 for my OnlineMLMCommunity.com 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 Goals for January 2016

Here were my goals for January 2016.  I have them broken down into two categories: one for my blog and one for my MLM Business.  I believe that setting clear, written goals is very important if you want to be successful.


  • Publish 30 new blog posts
  • Publish 30 podcasts
  • Leave 20 blog comments on other blogs
  • Send weekly training email to list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Add 200 comments to website
  • Send out 46 handwritten notes
  • Send out 62 handwritten notes
  • Create one report to sell on website

MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 6 new reps
  • Add 30 people to team
  • Do training call every Sunday night
  • Personally get 300 points in team contest

My Daily Mode of Operation for January 2016:

This was my daily game plan to build my business in January 2016:

  • Publish at least one new blog post every day
  • Publish one podcast per 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
  • Communicate with 3 team members every day

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

  1. Those numbers seem phenomenal!

    What a huge change from the month before. Did you do something different that created such a buzz? Were there certain posts that were generating the majority of visits?

    I am looking forward to seeing if those numbers are as high for February. Yes, it is a shorter month, but I mean on averages.

    Great job Chuck…I hope it is a strong February for you too.

    • Yes, I was happy with the numbers. Normally, I do very well in January.

  2. Hi Chuck,

    Another great month for you! Congratulations.
