Maximize Your Influence

Power Persuaders know that each audience and individual has a different balance between logic and emotion. Your analytical type personalities need more logic than emotion. Your amiable personalities require more emotion and less logic. Always remember, you have to have both elements present in your message, regardless of the personality types listening.

Emotion is a power you can harness and use in practically every aspect of persuasion. Remember, logic is important, but emotion helps you catapult an otherwise dull or flat exchange to the next level.

You must know when to create positive or negative emotions. The key is your EQ (Emotional Intelligence). You have to be able to read your prospect and know what emotion to use and understand the proper dose. Great persuaders have learned the ability to read and use the right emotion.

Every aspect of success and wealth includes your ability to generate multiple streams of income. I just finished a training in San Diego, CA. talking with entrepreneurs on creating multiple streams of income. I am very passionate about this topic because so many people just don't have the right vehicles to generate wealth.   

This is a key factor to success and many people have a great vehicle, but the challenge is they just don't have the gas.  We know the gas to your vehicle are the soft skills.  This would be your mindset, people skills, EQ, and your ability to influence.  The rest were missing the proper income vehicle, (Multiple Streams Of Income)

It’s a volatile future. You’d be wise to have multiple streams of income flowing into your life. 

In the future, people will need a portfolio of income streams—not one or two—but many streams from completely different and diversified sources. So that if one stream goes, you barely feel the bump. You’re stable. You have time to adjust. You’re safe. Do you have multiple streams of income flowing into your life at this time? Maybe it's time to add another one.
