EPISODE 6: Change is Good—Seeing When You are Disempowering Yourself Will Expand Your Growth Zone
In this episode of the VN² PowerUp Podcast we tackle the all important topic of leadership. Most of you already know this, but building a successful business will take great leadership. Sometimes that can be a lonely place; especially when you are going against the grain of the status quo (like the VN² strategy). So we invited an expert in the field of leadership to join the discussion—Ted Ma, who also built a very large network marketing organization prior to launching a very successful speaking business. These days, Ted is an award-winning speaker that helps companies develop leaders, increase production and reduce turnover. He has spoken for audiences as large as 10,000 and has shared the stage with Mel Robbins, John Maxwell, and Jack Canfield. Unlike many leadership experts, Ted has been leading teams and developing leaders for over 16 years. His unique perspective on leadership comes from his experience building an international team of thousands upon thousands of independent distributors, reaching the top 1% in that company. His success in the field led to him co-creating a training program used by over 100,000 sales associates. Ted was named one of Databird Research Journal's top 100 Keynote Speakers for 2019 and has been featured in numerous publications including Kiplinger, CNBC, Inc, and the New York Times. He is a member of the National Speakers Association, Global Speakers Federation, and Toastmasters International. Listen as Rocco & Jodi pick Ted’s brain on some of the difficulties that come along with change. We also spend some time on how good leaders can separate their brand from their ego (that is a big one for social media!).

EPISODE 2: Rethinking the Power of Patience in Social Media: psychologically and strategically
In this episode, Rocco and Jodi explain why recruiting for your business on social media requires patience. You have to be willing to play the “long game”. Having patience helps on an emotional level as well as a strategic level. Here is what we mean: First we look at the emotional level. Psychologists Don Kelley and Daryl Connor wrote a white paper titled “The Emotional Cycle of Change” (ECOC), which includes five stages of emotional experience when we are faced with change. Change takes time to get use to and it gets ugly if we don’t know what to expect. Rocco unpacks each stage of the ECOC starting at Uninformed Optimism, moving to Informed Pessimism, to the Valley of Despair, to Informed Optimism, and finally to Success. If you are moving to a social-first recruiting strategy, rest assured that you will go through this process. Being aware of this process will keep you from quitting when you don’t see immediate results. On a strategic level, having patience keeps you from being more than just all the other “noise” on social media. Jodi explains how to get past the noise by playing the long game with your content being both relevant and relatable to your audience. Most people post relevant content, but they have a tough time also making it relatable. Your success requires BOTH! Stay connected with us for future content by subscribing to our podcast!

EPISODE 1: The Three-Legged Stool Model of Network Marketing and Who’s to Blame for the Industry Being so Off Balance
In this inaugural episode, our show hosts (Rocco Sileo and Jodi Gilano) introduce themselves and unpack what the theme of the VN² PowerUp Podcast is all about: a rebellion against traditional network marketing recruiting strategies. Every December, about 16% of the american adult population indicate that they intend to start a business in the new year. That’s the equivalent of 44 million people (See the link below if you want to reference these numbers). Statistically, only 1% of those people will actually take the plunge. Why does everyone else stay on the sidelines? There are three barriers needed to be removed in order to start a successful business: An idea for a product or service Financial resources A great marketing strategy For years, the network marketing industry thrived because it removed all three of those barriers. However, within the past decade, the marketing strategy for the industry has unraveled because most people’s warm market have turned cold on them. Instead of spending a ton of energy trying to figure out why this has happened, Rocco and Jodi spend the bulk of the time in this episode exploring a new strategy in the age of social media. Once you learn this new strategy, you will be able to unlock the floodgates for the above mentioned 44 million people who like to be business owners. Listen and learn how to trade in your old warm market list for a new list of PowerBase connections. Link: 44 Million People Stay connected with us for future content by subscribing to this podcast!
