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

Here is my month in review for May 2016 for my blog and my MLM Business.  I enjoy sharing these results with my readers, so I can be accountable and show people what is and what isn’t working in my business.

May was a great month for me overall.  I had a lot going on in my other businesses, but I stayed consistent and persistent and was very productive. I finished my first full month of my 90 day challenge and am making great progress.

June will probably slow down a little bit.  My blogs are typically slower in June, July and August (while everyone is on summer vacation), but maybe this year will be different.

My Goals for May 2016

Here were my goals for May 2016.  I have them broken down into two categories: one for my blog and one for my MLM Business.  I set specific goals each month so I have something to aim for.

My Blog

  • Publish 22 new blog posts
  • Publish 22 podcasts
  • Send weekly training email to list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Send out 62 handwritten notes
  • Revise/Edit 22 posts

My Primary MLM Company

  • Personally sponsor 4 new reps
  • Add 75 people to my team
  • Do training call every Sunday night

My Daily Mode of Operation for May 2016:

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

  • Publish one new blog post per day, Monday through Saturday
  • Publish one podcast per day, Monday through Saturday
  • 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 30 minutes per day
  • Communicate with 2 team members every day

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