Seven years ago I was going bankrupt and getting divorced..

And I decided to use the last balance of my credit card and travel to Garda lake in Italy together with my friends Miikka and Antti for one week.

I had been an entrepreneur for 8 years and was totally burned out financially, emotionally and mentally. Before traveling to Garda lake, the direct sales company we had worked incredibly hard to build a decent business with was going bust after six years.

On top of that my investments backed with huge personal loans (don’t try that at home) were also backfiring and two of the companies I was a major shareholder in were going bankrupt.

Two weeks before we travelled to Italy I had started as a partner with a Swedish direct sales company called Zinzino. My hopes were not too high because I was totally burned out.

Also because I was so immersed in all the adversity related to my business, I had actually totally neglected our relationship with Anita for too long and had taken everything for granted. Somehow during the week I was able to turn my fears of bankruptcy and loosing an once amazing relationship with Anita into hunger. I decided to turn things around and I felt that zinzino came into our life for a reason.

When we got home I started to work with the business but getting started was tougher than I thought. I felt that I had burned too many bridges because of so much adversity and failure. I remember walking out from a few business presentations because I just couldn’t see how I could get to even break even with my finances.

I’m so thankful that my dear friend Manu kept believing in me and pushing me forward and thank you also to Ørjan for taking me under your wing and teaching me to play in a totally different league than before. 🙏

Despite of great mentors I quit more than anyone in my team but i also managed to fight back every time I was feeling down or filled with fear (which was several times a day in the beginning). And for once in my life I decided to focus one course until successful and persevere through the pain and fear. I also decided to not take things so serious, trust my intuition and take it step by step.
One customer at a time…

And here we are again in Verona, Italy after seven years, with my best friends (thank you Anu for organizing) who I have built an incredible business and travelled around the world together with, who are Godparents to our kids, best men at our wedding and best business partners one could ask for.

The last seven years have been the most challenging but at the same time the most rewarding in all possible ways. After five years of hard but rewarding work, my bankruptcy turned into freedom and our almost divorce turned back into love with two wonderful boys as strawberries on top of (and in) the cake.

We should all have a license to fail because we can only get to success through failure.

“It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, it matters how many times you get up and keep moving forward”.

Thank you once more to Manu, Olli, Ørjan and Anita and to many others for believing in me when I didn’t see the light myself.

Thank you also to Zinzino and my team for being the greatest in the world. Let’s continue thriving and making history together.
This is just the beginning peeps! 🙏🚀garda1

Back in business

After working quite intensely with my main business Zinzino for five years and after having our second son, Arman, we decided to move to south of Spain for a while to live a more laid back lifestyle. My Dad wasn’t around much when I was growing up so one of my goals was to have an opportunity to be home more with my kids especially when they are small. These are the best and at the same time the most challenging times I have experienced. Nothing teaches us more than our own children. It’s a true leadership challenge that never ends. I’m so grateful that I have had the chance to watch them grow and be there to play with them. Me and my wife, Anita, also had a chance to work more on our physical and mental well being and it has been a true blessing.

After chilling in Spain with la familia for two years it’s great to be back in the game of inspiring people to change and to follow their dreams. True happiness I have learned comes from growth and contribution. We love living in and working from the old town of Tallinn now. This city is so alive, and we love the medieval energy combined with a great startup and entrepreneur friendly environment!

This is one of the most powerful exercises I have done for getting the focus back on the most important thing!  Especially powerful after an incredibly warm holiday season. It’s called the blueprint to your soul. Thank you Vishen and Mindvalley for teaching me this. ❤

Networking Times – One more dream came true

Attract a Great Teacher, Then Become One Yourself 

In the early years of my network marketing career I gave incredible presentations that lasted at least two hours. I had an amazing closing rate of close to 50 percent. The only challenge was that my business was not duplicating because everyone wanted Magic Mikko to do the presentations. I couldn’t understand how others were killing it and going up in the recognition ranks while I was stuck at middle management levels, even though I was the best closer on my team.

Thanks to my upline and mentors I started to understand that in this business we need to be good at teaching and we don’t have to be the best sales guy out there to make it to the top. Actually, quite the contrary. Duplicating simple basic steps over and over again is the name of the game.

One of the biggest preconceptions in our business is that prospects think that sales people are the most successful. That’s just not true. Normally sales people are good in getting many customers and new distributors into the business, but they often lack skills in duplication. School teachers on the other hand learn how to sign up a few customers, but are very effective in teaching others how to do the same. This is of course the aim of the business.

Our business is very simple: all we need to do is learn how to make a few customers among people we care about and then teach a couple of distributors to do the same. And duplicate this over and over again until we have turned our dreams into reality. This would work even if we were dealing with robots. The challenge is that many times people make it complicated in their mind. This is also what makes our business fun and worth striving for.

The best way to become an effective, respected teacher is by practicing. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. What also helps immensely is to find a mentor who has already reached the level you want and has the results, versus someone who is just reading from the books but not necessarily practicing what he or she preaches. The good news is that if you work with an ethical company you will always find a mentor; sometimes you just have to look high enough.

Whether I’m giving a one-on-one coaching session to one of my team partners or giving a presentation to 2,000 people, the one who always learns to most from it is myself. The more you teach, the more you learn and develop. The more you coach and present, the more disciplined you become in practicing what you preach because the message embeds deeper and deeper into your subconscious mind.

As the teaching goes, we need to put 10,000 hours into anything we want to become professional at. This means that for us to build a huge business, not only do we need to put in our 10,000 hours of becoming a great teacher and mentor, but also we need to duplicate the same with our team.

If you want more milk, you need more cows. In other words we need to let the birds fly free from their nest. The best way for your team to learn and develop is by becoming more independent.

I have been a serial entrepreneur for over ten years and have been a shareholder in approximately 20 companies. I have witnessed ups and downs in companies in a variety of business sectors over the last few years. This period in my life has taught me a lot more than all the schools I ever went to.

What I love most about direct sales is that we get to practice all the best sides of owning a business without having to concentrate on the more unpleasant stuff, such as logistics and invoicing of goods, to name a few.

Most importantly in traditional business we are often left alone with our thoughts and problems. That can be very expensive. I would have saved millions during my career if I’d had a mentor helping me who had already made it to the top of the game in the same industry.

In direct sales, it’s important that our mentor not only talks the talk, but the best ones are also willing to walk the walk together with you all the way to the top or as high as you are willing to go. Conversely, when looking for new people to mentor, I’m scouting for five characteristics or habits in people:

  • You are hungry and ambitious.
  • You are proactive, take responsibility, and focus on your circle of influence.
  • You commit to working the plan continuously for a minimum of two years.
  • You attend all events I attend and do at least one hour of personal development every day.
  • You call me more often than I call you.

If you want to attract a great teacher or mentor, be proactive: raise your hand high in the sky and use your voice to make sure you are noticed.

Mikä on Plan B?

Onko tietotaito ja asenteesi suoramyyntialaa kohtaan viime vuosituhannelta?

Jos et tiennyt, niin suoramyynti on yksi maailman nopeimmin kasva-vista megatrendeistä.

Olen toiminut sarjayrittäjänä yli kymmenen vuotta ja ollut osakkaana noin 20 yrityksessä. Olen ollut todistamassa nousuja ja laskuja useissa näissä eri alojen yrityksissä viimeisten vuosien aikana. Kaikista yrityksistäni suoramyynti on ollut nopein ja riskittömin tie, sekä minulle että monille ystävilleni – saavuttaa jatkuva, automatisoitu tulovirta ilman taloudellista riskiä.

Olet ehkä kyllästynyt jatkuvaan oravanpyörään ja loputtomiin työtunteihin sidottuna toimistolle. Suoramyynti on ala siinä missä muutkin. Suoramyyntialalla voit edustaa nykyisin maailmanluokan tuotteita.

Minä ja perheeni arvostavat tuotteita, joita ovat olleet kehittämässä maailman parhaimmat asiantuntijat ja tiedemiehet. Arvostamme myös luomua ja fair trade -tuotteita. Puolisoni kanssa olemme hyvin kiinnostuneita ravinnosta ja hyvinvoinnista. Jos aihe kiinnostaa, niin seuraa matkaamme tämän blogin kautta Euroopassa ja Yhdysvalloissa.

Terveisin

Plan B – Tarina rahasta ja automatisoidusta tulosta

Plan B_cover

RAHA VOI MUUTTAA ELÄMÄSI.

Monet elämän ongelmat voi ratkaista suuremmilla tuloilla, ja toisaalta raha liittyy jollain lailla myös useimpien unelmien toteuttamiseen.

Muutoksen aloittaminen omaan taloudelliseen tilanteeseen vaatii vain päätöksen tekemistä ja uuden ajatusmaailman opiskelua rahaan liittyen. Mutta suuremmatkaan tulot eivät ole tae tasapainoiseen taloudelliseen tilanteeseen, mikäli et tiedä miten rahaa kuuluu käyttää.

Tässä kirjasessa on kerrottu todellinen tarina siitä, miten rahaan liittyvät uskomukset voivat muuttaa oman ja läheisten elämän. Työkaluna on käytetty alaa nimeltä suoramyynti, jonka suosio on nyt vahvassa kasvussa ja joka on yksi tämän hetken voimakkaimmista trendeistä.
