The best thing about network marketing for me is learning life skills that have immense value. The skill of being truly present and listening without agenda, and without judgment, which gifts the other person with the all too rare opportunity to show up as how and who they really are. The skill of having fun even when— maybe especially when— working really hard. The skills of Teamwork— not just working as part of a Team— really learning how to follow and support the leader, which turns out to be the very best way to learn how to be a leader. And having this bundle of skills in my toolkit adds up to being magnetically attractive and a whole lot'a fun. If ever there was a servant leader, it's Maran. "It's all good" is something she lives— whether in the chaotic aftermath of a South Florida hurricane or facing the frustrations of a seething subscriber who can't get into the site. "Take a deep breath", she says, and goes about her business of turning straw into gold. I've been together with Maran for more than five years now. Tough and high times both. She is a rock. One of those highly polished, swirling blue Lapis lazuli ones with the word Creativity etched in platinum. Maran is all that good! JMF

Leadership by Maran Banta

A Leader recognizes the mistake as soon as possible. Owns the mistake. And makes repair. And moves on.  A friend called me. We’ve known each other for ten years, and have been face-to-face only twice, at Art Jonak events as a matter of fact. ( I Love this industry!) We have never been in the…

DUPLICATION A set of single, specific daily actions Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it, Let’s do it, let’s duplicate. An often misunderstood idea.

It’s All Good – Pause and Appreciate by Maran Banta

Appreciation, individual, specific and lavish, is my theme for the summer.  Mother Teresa is quoted as saying, “There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation than for bread.” I’ve been doing some non-scientific research on that idea and it sure seems true to me. Most people, even those with what we perceive…

Our experiences and socialization are different so of course the way we approach this business is going to be different. Are men and women really all that different?
