Why bet-game Sport?

Business Opportunity P1-3.003

Hello, my name is Rich Simmonds from South Africa. I am a businessman and author, and I have been in network marketing for over 20 years. I have always looked for a company that offers a multi level marketing system that can be a solution for all of its members, not just the top leaders. Unfortunately, in so many network marketing companies, only a handful of people will be successful while others seem to make just enough or not even enough. We might assume they just did not get enough momentum or they never got to the critical mass.
This is the common truth with most opportunities in this industry and usually the fault lies with the compensation plan – often it is designed to benefit the company and only reward the very successful. I see it regularly with conventional businesses and sales teams where the goals are always moving, and the movement only benefits the company and never the people doing the work.
 
I have been searching for a sustainable company with a compensation plan that makes it possible for average member to earn well, instead of just the leaders.
 
At the beginning of 2018 I was introduced to bet-game Sport by my friends Goretti and Fernando de Sousa from Madeira, which is a Portuguese region off the north coast of Africa.
I joined bet-game Sport at the end of January 2018 and became the first english speaking person in the company, there were a few challenges at the start as most of the material was in either Portuguese or Spanish, and together with my wife Marina we developed the english presentation and other support materials. But despite these challenges I was still able to earn well over $1000 in the first month.
 
In April 2018, the owner and president DeJesus Ramirez together with the Top Leader Pereira and his wife Katia came to visit us in South Africa. Our up-line Sponsors Goretti and Fernando were also in South Africa to translate and help us understand the business.
What impressed me most about DeJesus Ramirez was that everything he does is focused on the long term sustainability of the company. His vision is to establish a successful company that his children and grandchildren can inherit.
 
DeJesus Ramirez is a family man with 5 children, his business interests in Paraguay are in the Travel, Insurance and commercial property sectors. DeJesus is also a member of Parliament in Paraguay.
 
Why I like the bet-game Sport compensation plan so much….
Simply it is fair and it makes good business sense. Regardless who you are in the company you will always need to have an active package.
 
With bet-game Sport if you would like to be a leader, it is because you have decided to serve your team and not yourself. This is your business and as your leadership develops, your potential will determine how successful you will become, but you will receive exactly the same benefits as every other member. This is networking and everything duplicates.
 
bet-game Sport guarantees that you always get 3x the value of your package or a return of 300% or a net return of 200% in bonuses. If you take a $3000 membership package for example you will get $9000 in total bonuses. How quickly you receive those bonuses is entirely up to you, some people will take 15-20 months with just their membership, and others may do that in three to four months, by recruiting and earning extra bonuses. But regardless of who you are or what package you choose, you will always receive a monthly bonus from bet-game Sport.
 
We do have presentation videos that explain the passive income and business opportunity in detail, here is the link https://youtu.be/YSfaCHuV0kY
 
As I mentioned, I was looking for an opportunity with a company that provides well for ALL its members, and with bet-game Sport, I have found it.
 
I attained the Ruby level within 7 months of joining this business and because I was doing active recruiting I earned well above the Ruby average.
 
I have members in my team that have achieved the Ruby level within a month of joining and others who have reached the level within 4 months, but that is the beauty of network marketing you determine your own pace.
 
The bet-game Sport business opportunity really does have the potential for you to build your business into a truly passive income where your income is greater than your expenses.
 
I invite you to join bet-game Sport and experience the opportunity for yourself. Bet-game Sport is here to stay and never before has the opportunity for financial freedom been within the reach of so many people.
 
Thank you for your time. I look forward to meeting you and working with you in bet-game Sport.

Negotiating, or are we Manipulating?

man-couple-people-womanI have a saying … Don’t look for the ideas that will confirm your thinking, rather look for the trends that will disrupt your thoughts. The danger is that we will usually revert back to our beliefs, those things that we have been taught and that we think are true or at least true for us. Although we would like things to be different, our belief prevents the possibility of another solution and causes us to react the same way as we have previously. Einstein defines doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result as insanity. 

The only solution is to think differently and if we truly are different we will get more done, but at the same time that will cause us to be in conflict with those around us. Now you can see how difficult it is to be different as most of us try to avoid conflict rather than run head first into it. I would like you to think and ask yourself is this what everyone else will be doing, will they be trying to avoid conflict at all costs? The answer is probably yes and you can predict and understand what all the others are doing and most likely what they are going to do. This is where your greatest opportunity is, can you see it?

The next step is for you to understand that you cannot be the proverbial bull in the china shop, you need to use wisdom and approach people carefully, remember you are thinking differently from them, they will not expect you to be different, but when they do realise you are different – you will immediately be in conflict with them.

When our ideas are different and when we share these ideas with others we are challenging the status quo and the last thing people want to do is change. We should realise that everything we do in life is about manipulation, therefore the potential for conflict is always high.

Here comes the conflict …

Your idea whatever it is will be challenged by others. Usually this happens, not because your idea is bad, but because it challenges the belief of others and they will resist change wherever possible. Then will defend their belief at all costs, some people feel vulnerable and threatened by a new idea. Sometimes it is because they don’t like change and in other instances it is because they think they should have come up with the idea – especially if they are the boss.

How to handle the conflict

  1. Decide to be kind – when you have a choice to be right or kind, always choose to be kind. You will never really know what being kind will do for you.
  2. Give up your need to be right – my way or the highway never works, you will accomplish so much more and you will be at peace with others when you give up your need to be right.
  3. Stop screaming and … Start Listening – in a emotional context the opposite of listening is screaming, when you have decided to give up your need to be right, you will stop screaming and start listening to the needs of others.
  4. Listen and use the power of suggestion – now that you have decided to listen, firstly you need to make a decision to listen beautifully to others you can begin to get your own way. Yes you are wondering if I just went off topic, but no the fact of the matter is that when you allow others to do most of the talking (around 90%) and you only listen (speaking less than 10%), When the other person is doing most of the talking, any idea you share with the other person will be seen as there idea and not yours. Subtle suggestion can also be used to manipulate others into seeing things your way, Then the big challenge is can you actually give up your need to be right?
  5. Always check if it is advice or truth they are seeking – one of the major contributors to conflict in our lives is our need to be truthful. We should remember that not everyone wants to hear the truth, I am not saying we should be dishonest but we need to listen very carefully when it comes to advice and truth. When someone asks you for advice, that is exactly what they are asking for ‘advice’. When someone asks for advice they are actually asking you to tell them what they already believe to be right for them. If however they ask for your honest opinion, first check if they want the truth or not? They don’t usually want the truth, they want your opinion to align with theirs. Listen carefully and approach any truth with the utmost caution, as we all have different truths.

Emotional Intelligence vs Conscious Awareness

Emotional Intelligence or EQ as it is known suggests a level which can be attained, however no one can say they are emotionally intelligent as then they have not given up the need to be right, which is one of the keys to being emotionally intelligent. Therefore the term conscious awareness is far more accurate as you need to be aware and ready for whatever life throws at you, that probably means that you are always ready to think first before reacting. Something that is vital in today’s fast paced world.

The Power of Vulnerability

We are social creatures and connection gives us purpose and meaning in life. When we think of vulnerability, we often think of being disconnected and, of the shame that comes from being disconnected from the environment where we feel most secure. We worry that we will not be worthy of love and connection and that is what makes us feel vulnerable.

However this is just a part of vulnerability, and the other side of vulnerability is what makes us beautiful and unique – it is the willingness to try something unique that has no guarantee.

Be aware that when others notice you in what they think is your vulnerable state they will often try attack you, as you have the courage to be different and the way you embrace your uniqueness will cause them to be insecure. They will try control you into becoming predictable for them so that you can be less like you and more like them. But as long as you notice that they are noticing your vulnerability you have the power, when you decide to become who they want you to be, you will experience the vulnerability that disconnection brings, not because you will be disconnected, but rather because you have disconnected from your true self.

Be thankful for your vulnerability and discover more of yourself, allow yourself to be seen for who you are and love those around you. Believe your are enough and let that be your truth.

I can’t sell, I …

pexels-photo-671865

Many people believe they cannot sell, but it could be a misunderstanding of what selling really is. I often ask people who tell me they cannot sell if they are married or in a relationship. If they are then they can sell, and if they are not then they may have been, and the problem might not be selling but rather the understanding of how to keep a customer. Yes life is all about selling and I hope that this article will help you understand what real selling is all about.

“I can’t sell, I feel bad asking people for money” – this could be the reason you are underpaid, when last did you ask for an increase or do you feel you are not worthy of what you are earning? If you are committed to doing a good job then you should not feel guilty about the money you are being paid. When you offer people a service, if your service is going to be valuable to them, then they are glad to pay your asking price. When you discount your service you are conveying the following messages: Either you were charging them too much from the beginning or you fear that they will not see the value of your service. When you discount you are actually telling them that your service is not really worth it and they will think twice before using you. 

Think about what you offer. The only items that get discounted or go on sale are the items that were not popular in the first place. Quality products are never discounted and never go on sale.

Sometimes all you need to do is ask and you may need to learn to deal with a few objections along the way.

“I can’t sell, I don’t want to deal with objections” – objections are part of life and remember they are not saying no to you, they are asking you to clarify why your product or service could benefit them. This is part of life – we would like to know that someone would actually like to help us and show us why the service or product could be valuable to them. Objections, just like selling, are part of life and the sooner you can understand that objections are not rejections, the sooner you will become successful in life. Interestingly the average entrepreneur does not fail because he does not have a good idea, they actually fail because they have never learnt to deal with objections.

Don’t be embarrassed about what you do, tell people exactly what you do when people ask you. I have often found myself being vague about what I do and then I can be almost certain no one will even be interested. However, when I tell people exactly what I do, they become interested. What we need to realise is that people do not buy your product or service, they actually buy your belief in the product or service you are offering. If they cannot see the belief they won’t waste their time looking for it.

“I can’t sell, I have no idea where to find customers” – this is a valid concern because most people think that you need to be selling the whole day. The reality is that you are looking for people who are looking for you. So the more people you meet the more people thete are who have a chance of finding you. We often wonder how we are going to meet people, but think about meeting people rather than looking for customers. People have built in detectors that will spot a salesperson immediately, so don’t be predictable – be friendly and find out about the other person, rather than finding the opportunity to sell to them.

Reaching out to meet new people can be done in many ways – traditional and online methods are all effective, you just need to find the most effective way for you. Be consistent in whatever you do, don’t just try something once. The most effective ways will show results over time, so don’t give up.

“I can’t sell, I am not persuasive” – the idea that you need to be a typical salesperson is far from the truth. Learn to listen and show empathy for others. Make things simple for people to understand, and remember that 85% of people are not interested in jargon. Give people the facts they want and share stories when appropriate. 

Prepare well and understand your product or service, be convinced that you have the service they need. More often than not I meet people who are still trying to sell their own product or service to themselves, and they do not have the belief in their own product that will convince me to buy.

In short, selling is part of life, and if you are not selling, you are not growing.

What could $5000 do for you?

You could buy a second hand car, pay off your car or pay some of your bills. Perhaps you have always dreamed of a family vacation or maybe you would like to buy something extravagant like jewellery or an expensive watch. 

What about creating some passive income – yes real passive income, where you can receive a monthly bonus without selling or recruiting?

One option I have found that works is joining Bet635Sport with a $5000 membership package which will give you a monthly bonus of $1200 for 12 months, that is a total bonus of $15000. Have a look at the following video https://youtu.be/PHmJXRL_hCs as an example of what $5000 could really do for you.

Social Media in the classroom.

school-741165_960_720Social media is here to stay. Making a statement like that makes social media sound like something that arrived at some stage of our lives, much like the radio, television or cellphone. Is social media really something that has arrived or could social media have been with us since we starting communicating? If we put too much emphasis on the word media then that could be the case, but if we view social media as a broader form of communication, then it has been with us long before we even had formal languages. This form of social media can even be found in paintings done by cavemen. In essence, social media could well be a story that has relevance to more than just a few people; it could be an incomplete story that develops into a complete story and eventually becomes a legend.

The title of this article is ‘Social Media in the Classroom‘ and I think the classroom is the place where many stories start. Thinking back to my school days, I often heard someone say something and then the lesson began. I had very little information about what was said but during the lesson I would be thinking about the possibilities of what I had heard and the scenarios that could play out, often I would never even speak to the person who originally said that particular something. We often hear things and then get distracted, only to have these stories completed at a later stage.

I picture a classroom with a teacher and 30 pupils, each having their own thoughts and perceptions of what is going on around them. The lesson could be a catalyst for the next great story or big scandal – something we think we have no control over. Control is debatable, but how we use the information we gather could be the key to success or total disaster.

The saying goes ‘what you think of me is your business, it has nothing to do with me’ and that is a guideline which informs us that we should not react, but rather just observe.

Social interactions can be good when we try and understand the viewpoints of others. They become bad when we try to change the viewpoints of others. They become extremely ugly when we are in conflict with others, because we are not prepared to listen to them as we see their opinions as irrelevant.

On social media platforms people often express their opinions openly and sometimes even name those who they feel have wronged them. Remember it is not what people say about you that causes the damage, more often than not it is the way people respond to people who have said things about them that causes the real damage. You are judged by others on how you respond to what was said about you, they seldom judge on the opinion of others only.

Most importantly you should know how to secure your social media platforms like FaceBook, Twitter and other platforms. Start by blocking those whom you find offensive, and most importantly don’t allow just anyone to post on your timeline or tag you in posts or photos. Remember that once you have applied your settings they will not always stay like that, so do check them every two to three months at least.

When last did you Google yourself? Search more than just the first few pages and then also check what photos of you are online. Hopefully everything you find is good, otherwise you will need to contact the platform concerned and request that the content be removed.

What is the guideline for social media or communication in general? This is a simple answer which is not as simple to follow, but it is something we should always remember when communicating. The guideline is as follows: you need to be a ‘Social person who is professional at all times’.

The words “All times” also speak to the need to be consistent. This is contrary to traditional marketing which believes that you only say something when it is worth saying, and you definitely say nothing in a crisis. This traditional marketing approach is unlike relationships where consistent communication is important, and in a crisis you need to communicate even more. Social is about relationships and our thinking should always be in the context of relationships, leaving the marketing type communication to the ‘spin doctors’.

Our Social Community : Building communities of people is the way social media functions; give people what they want and they will always see you as valuable. You should always ask yourself why people would want to read your social media posts and what they would want to see? In general we are all vain and fickle, we love to read about what is important to us, and if we can see pictures of ourselves, our children and our families we have fulfilled the basic human need of recognition.

What should a school be posting on Social Media? Stories told using photos and only a bit of text are the most powerful. Text heavy posts are quickly overlooked when there are interesting photos. Don’t over-promote what the school does (social media should not be used for advertising), rather promote the learners and sportspeople who make up the school. In terms of sport make sure that you don’t forget your lesser sports.

How often should a school post on Social Media? The biggest pitfall is to post only when a big sports or other event happens at the school. You should avoid becoming predictable, rather decide on how often you would like to post and stick to that plan. Consistency builds communities quicker than events and also conveys a message to prospective learners and parents that they will be able to find a place in your school’s community. If you only focus on the big events, you may just exclude the people who are unable to achieve the best results.

Social Media Policy and Guidelines

Does your school have a social media policy or guidelines? Policies are often too strict and not that easy to enforce. I suggest starting off with guidelines that would help everyone understand what some of the Do’s and Don’ts of social media are.

A social media guideline is really just a communication guideline, after all social media is the way we do the majority of our communication these days. A small team should put the guidelines together and then circulate the document for comments and finally approval by the school management and governing body. Getting legal opinion is also a good idea so that you avoid lawsuits.

Guidelines should cover some of the following topics : Cyberbullying, Sexting, Depression, Brand damage and Crisis Communication to name a few.

The most important aspects of guidelines are to focus on who communicates, what is communicated and how quickly things are communicated.

Whilst formulating these guidelines it is a good idea to work through various scenarios that could arise. Here are a few examples: Our sports team wins the league; We have the top academic student in the country; Our school had a great tour to the Far East; Our principal has been embezzling funds from the school for the past 10 years and it is estimated that more than 10 Million is missing; Our deputy head master is having an affair with the Head Boy; A major drug bust just occurred at our school. Scenarios need to be worked through and plans need to be made before the time. Good or bad, the news or topics that people will talk about need to be addressed, carefully and efficiently.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for pioneers, people with vision and determination to take this opportunity into new countries. Of course this will happen whether you want to be a pioneer or not, but we feel that this article may inspire some to be the pioneers and leaders of huge markets in the next year or two.
How will we assist those who would like to be pioneers in the bet-game Sport Business?
We will not be giving you any packages for free, so let’s get that clear from the start. Businesses that may have come into your marketplace in the past and given you something for free are usually failing already, and they think of your market as a type of dumping ground for their failure. Don’t ask for free packages, this is a serious business and we work with leaders, not beggars.
We will give you the necessary training and provide your with the support material to get you started, followed by training and support for your growing team and your upcoming leaders.
When your membership is over 300 we will come and do a launch event in your country, and the company may also look at opening a local office to support you and your members if they feel this is practical or necessary.
What do we expect from you?
You will need to join the company with a membership package, you can decide which one you would like according to your resources. We know that when people have a membership package they can research the opportunity from inside and get the true facts. It is those facts that you will be sharing when you meet people and expand your business.
Yes, we expect you to run this like your business and you will see the benefits of aligning yourself with the bet-game Sport opportunity, just like we have.
If you are an entrepreneur you will immediately see the benefit of having a business opportunity like this, where you have no overheads, no staff and you can go to where the people are, instead of waiting for the people to come to you.
Who will you be working with?
As an English speaking person you will be working with me, Rich Simmonds and my support team. I am currently based in South Africa but I am a traveller and love meeting new people, and most of all I like to help people develop into business people who are financially free.
Some people say I am strict, but I know what works and I know how to find people. You can decide if you would like to respond to this call for leaders or if you would like to read about other successful people in the future. This is the opportunity to be part of history, but you will need to decide if this opportunity is for YOU.
If you are a leader, I would like to hear from you. Please email me at rich@bet635sport.net
