Make the Decision to Succeed…

MD-KF blog banner logo

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change”. Recipients of the Team Kaizen award have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken.

2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silver Consultants throughout the year. Even though he has qualified for Team Kaizen 2018, Royal Diamond Michael (Mike) DiMuccio continues to lead and sponsor new Consultants as he approaches 27 years with Nikken. Why? He has set himself a goal to be a part of Team Kaizen 2019.

Explaining why he was so intent on qualifying for Team Kaizen, Mike says:

“I wanted to prove to the Nikken Family, especially those following me, that even though I am at the Royal Diamond rank, often associated with ‘resting on our laurels’, that it could be done. The point was for me to remove all excuses and legitimate reasons for not getting it done. It was the consequence of making a decision. Enlist the support and direct involvement of your active upline and create a daily to-do list and calendar of events. Tell people why you are doing what you are doing with Nikken and invite them to help you do it – directly, or indirectly. Create new Silvers. No one becomes Silver just because. This achievement requires a focused effort on the part of the Consultant and their sponsor.

I have asked newly sponsored Consultants to join me in the effort to achieve a Paragon Award and Team Kaizen. The majority of volume that we have generated was from retail sales, which is a big plus in the new compensation plan. Of course, building a team is of a higher priority, but doesn’t hold back the potential for a Consultant to achieve the Silver rank mainly on his or her own steam. Contact with my running friends, ABC meetings and calls were top on the list for daily activities. Asking for ‘help’ and referrals became the means to connect to more people.

Everyone loves a deal, so extending product incentives to my Consultant’s prospects became a way to encourage immediate action, like offering a Naturest® Pillow for a Sleep System or a PiMag® Water Bottle for a PiMag® Waterfall. And now, with our new Wellness Home Packs, we have a built-in incentive!”

On his way to becoming a 2019 Team Kaizen member, Mike says: “Setting a goal and achieving it is one of the most empowering feelings in the world. I’m staying on top of my 3000 PGV monthly, mainly with the same strategy as before. I personally am also taking advantage of the new Wellness Packs to have products to loan to prospects and to promote the built-in incentives.”

In summary, here are the five main actions required with the “DiMuccio strategy” in order to join Team Kaizen:

  1. Make the decision to succeed.
  2. Ask your active upline for help and support.
  3. Create a daily to-do list and a calendar of events.
  4. Sponsor new Consultants and create new Silvers to build a team.
  5. Generate retail sales to increase volume. Maintain 3000 PGV monthly.

Next month, Mike is hosting the upcoming Humans Being More Summit together with a fellow Royal Diamond Bo Tanas in Toronto.

BUILD YOUR TEAM and be rewarded with Nikken Reward Points…

Blog hands banner

Achieve Nikken Reward Points and cash in on the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive for the month of September. If you’re a Nikken Consultant, you know that earning a Nikken income requires an Active Wellness lifestyle, sponsoring new people with the Nikken opportunity and producing personal and group sales volume. In September, the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive rewards sponsorship that produces Personal Point Volume (PPV), as well as Personal Group Volume (rank dependent).

Active Nikken Consultants who produce a minimum of 100 PPV in September are eligible for the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive.

There are two categories to qualify for this incentive:

Top Recruiters

This category recognises the Top 3 Consultants who sponsor the most new Consultants with 500 PPV during the calendar month. Consultants are ranked from 1 – 3 based on the number of new Consultants recruited. A minimum of 3 new Consultants, each with at least 500 PPV, must be achieved to count for qualification of the prize. Ties are decided by the higher PPV.

Top Group Volume (PGPV)

This category recognises the Top 3 Consultants on Direct, Executive and Silver ranks who produce the highest PGPV, within their personal group, throughout the month. Consultants are ranked from 1 – 3 based on the volume produced throughout the month. A minimum of 3,000 PGPV must be produced to be considered part of the Top 3. Ties are decided by the higher PGPV.

So, how can Nikken Reward Points benefit you?

  • Think of them as cash. When you purchase products with them and re-sell those products, you earn 100% profit. (Usually you earn 20% when you retail product.)
  • Would you like to try new products? Use your Nikken Reward Points and you won’t have depleted any extra money from your monthly budget.
  • Do you wish to recognize your team members for their efforts with a gift of product? Nikken Reward Points come in handy to make that purchase.
  • Do you want to create your own group contests? Use the products purchased using the Nikken Reward Points as prizes for the contest winners.

In a nutshell, NRPs help Nikken Consultants build and replenish their business.

Nikken Consultants can see the complete details of the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” on their Virtual Office.

The Nikken Reward Points can be used by placing the order with our Customer Services Team.

Commit to Your Goal…

SherriAloneTalking

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change.” Recipients of the Team Kaizen award exemplify the meaning of the word and have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken.

In their pursuit of Active Wellness, 2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silvers last year. One person who achieved this milestone was Sherri Danzig. As a Team Kaizen member, earlier this year she was treated to a trip of a lifetime to Japan. Here’s what she says about her plans to achieve Team Kaizen again in 2019:

“To qualify for Team Kaizen, you have to do one thing. You have to make a committed decision to accomplish the goal, no matter what conspires to get in your way. Beyond that, it’s helpful to have a mentor, an accountability partner, a mastermind team or even all three – to help you develop a plan, to work your plan and to revise your plan as you go along your journey. Beyond doing the work, you must nurture your belief and vision by staying plugged into company and field events. Most importantly, you must believe in the big version of yourself, what I call the Big Stick Figure (BSF), the version of yourself that believes everything you know is possible!

I am currently working with three partners who each wish to qualify for Team Kaizen. Two of them are at the rank of Silver, working towards Platinum and one is brand new. I also plan to support six new Consultants to break Silver this year. Together we’ll expand our online marketing success. I read affirmations multiple times daily and am making plans with family to meet me in Italy at the conclusion of our Team Kaizen trip to continue traveling!

I am honored to represent Nikken as a member of Team Kaizen. I’m honestly proud of myself for keeping to my commitment and working through some tough self-imposed barriers. I feel empowered to keep growing as a business leader and to stay on a personal development path that is unending. My desire is to step up and stop hiding, to be recognized and embrace being a leader. With that, I will strive to have a bigger voice to make a bigger impact!”

Here is Sherri’s three-step plan for herself and anyone else who wishes to be part of Team Kaizen:

  1. “Step up your recruiting activities. Set specific weekly goals for number of new contacts and 1-on-1 appointments.
  2. Begin tracking your progress on a large chart. Start with the finish and work backwards.
  3. Visualize your success. Write and say out loud the goal of being on Team Kaizen every day. Set a calendar event on repeat to remind yourself to smile and visualize your goal multiple times every day!”

Everyone can use a Natural Energy Boost!

beach-sea-nature-horizon-silhouette-light-1188436-pxhere.com.jpg

Energy is defined as the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. In other words, energy is integral to what sustains us and gives us vitality. Everyone needs energy but many of us lack it.

Every time something gets warm, cools down, moves, grows, makes a sound or changes in any way, it uses energy. Science classifies energy into two categories – kinetic (moving) and potential (stored) energy.1 For example, the food a person eats contains chemical energy and a person’s body stores this energy until he or she uses it as kinetic energy during work or play.2

Energy can change between potential and kinetic. Water at the top of a waterfall has stored potential energy but as the water begins to fall, it changes from potential to kinetic energy. When we create energy from hydropower, we harness the kinetic energy of the water for our own use.1 Radiant energy is another type of kinetic energy that includes visible light, X-rays, electromagnetic energy and radio waves.

Nikken could help you boost your kinetic energy with advanced magnetic and ceramic reflective fiber technologies. The Energy Pack is composed of Kenko (Japanese for “health”) and KenkoTherm products that incorporate these technologies. The Energy Pack is essential to an Active Wellness lifestyle and is designed to help support your maximum mobility and overall physical wellbeing.

The Energy Pack can appeal to people in all stages of activity: from the college athlete to the weekend warrior, from people who work on their feet all day to those who are not as active in their job. Whether you are a performance driven competitor or simply need to help soothe muscular and joint discomfort, the Energy Pack contains just the right product sampling to keep you on the Active Wellness path.

Our Wellness Home Packs provide you with the perfect opportunity to sponsor new Nikken Consultants and are priced at 10% below our everyday low prices!

Don’t forget: Anyone who has achieved the Summer Dash incentive, is qualified to receive free shipping* on the Energy Pack and any other Wellness Home Pack throughout the month of August, so this is the last week to take advantage of this great opportunity to save.

Stay tuned for what September has to offer!

Japanese Takeaways…

Japanese Takeaways Blog Banner

Recently the 2017 Nikken Team Kaizen members were rewarded for qualifying as Active Wellness entrepreneurs with a luxury trip to Japan. Here is what Jon and Nicki Edgell, Platinum Consultants from the UK, wrote about their memorable experience.

“In addition to the regular compensation plan Nikken offers extra incentives to Consultants. One of these has just seen us take part in an all expenses paid Team Kaizen trip to Japan, the original home of Nikken.

Although Nikken Inc. now has its HQ in the US the company aims to visit Japan every few years in order to honor its formation and to give Consultants a chance to experience Japanese culture and the people’s philosophy of service. This was certainly the case where we were constantly humbled by the people’s helpfulness and politeness everywhere we went. At each hotel on the tour lines of staff would stand and bow. If we stopped for a moment and looked confusingly at a metro map a young student with perfect English would offer help. Tokyo is preparing for the Olympics in 2020 and the people’s friendliness and the efficiency of their transport systems will ensure a successful event.

This trip, as well as various other annual events, is also a chance to reconnect with old colleagues and meet new friends, to revive one’s purpose, to get inspired and set intentions for the year ahead. To be surrounded by so many positive and successful partners serves to propel you on to the next level of your Nikken journey. Big decisions are made at these big events.

The trip was primarily a holiday and a reward for good work but there are inevitably chances to talk business and share best practices. By forging lasting relationships with international colleagues chances for collaboration and sharing business arise.

The network marketing model is one of collaborative entrepreneurship. Although we all have our own teams, by sharing information about what works well the global Nikken family is able to “grow the overall size of the pie”. In practice this translates, for example, to a colleague in Canada passing an enquiry from a UK resident to us or a Mexican business leader appearing on one of our webinars to pass on knowledge and inspiration to our team.

Another takeaway from the trip was the number of different ways one can be successful at the Nikken business – for instance through online retail or through building a network, or a combination of both. The Nikken business leaders are drawn from all sorts of different characters – it is certainly not the case that you have to be an outgoing extrovert in the stereotypical salesman mold.

Thank you Nikken for the trip of a lifetime!”

Setting Nikken Goals for 2018

Blog 22nd Jan postThe dictionary defines “resolution” as “a firm decision to do or not to do something”. As we settle into 2018 we often think of all the things we’d like to accomplish this year. Apparently 80% of New Year resolutions fail by February!1

To prevent this from happening, we have to change our mindset. Keep an open mind, get rid of limiting beliefs, set our goals for 2018, make the commitment, create a plan, and then act on it. If we lapse, we need to forgive ourselves and get back on track. To make 2018 your best business year yet, you need to know why you’re in business with Nikken and what you’re willing to commit to in terms of sponsoring, retailing and mentoring. What were you focused on in 2017? Was it effective? What will you focus on in 2018?

Here are some suggestions to help you make 2018 your best Nikken year yet:

  • Choose to believe in yourself. Trust that you can do it and trust that Nikken is behind you all the way.
  • Plan your day the night before. Make your to-do list and have it prioritised.
  • Set aside a time every day to look over and manage your business on your MyNikken. You need to know who your potential stars are and mentor them closely. You also need to encourage the forgetful ones to go onto Autoship so they will never run out of product. Remember that there is Retail Autoship as well as Consultant Autoship.
  • Incorporate the Everyday Weight Management Pack into your Active Wellness lifestyle. The Pack is not just about being at the right weight; it’s about good nutrition that works efficiently. You are a walking advertisement, so stay physically and mentally fit. We are offering FREE shipping on the Everyday Weight Management Pack until 31st March 2018.
  • Resolve to be a role model and have a 30 to 60 second testimonial ready, talking about how you’ve benefited from Nikken physically, mentally and financially.
  • Make sure you’re personally retailing at least 500 points monthly. (For example, retail just one Water Pack and you’re there!)
  • Make it a point to follow up with your retail customers.
  • Sponsor at least three people who are each committed to retailing 500 points a month. Show them how to earn by sponsoring 3 team members.
  • A Wellness Home begins with you and what you put into your body. Build your own Wellness Home with Nikken products from the Nutrition, Water and Sleep categories. Teach your team members and new customers to do the same.

We tend to complicate work and life with too many ifs, ands or buts. Instead, we need to think things through, make solid decisions and follow through. There will always be good days and bad days, but the key is to stick to the plan. Talking about it is not enough, as actions make businesses grow. By taking the right actions consistently, you’ll be congratulating yourself for a year of achievement when December comes around!

Retail and Sponsor with Social Media

GC Social Media blog heading

Network marketing success can come from mastering a few activities and doing them over and over.

Successful network marketing requires the repetition of two basic behaviors:

  • Retail the products. When you retail products at Nikken, you get a percentage of the sales price, so you are earning commission.
  • Sponsor new Customers and Consultants. When you enroll team members who also retail the products, you earn commissions according to our compensation plan on what they purchase and retail. The more people in your group, the more you potentially can earn.

Once you’ve shared the products and the income opportunity with your friends and family, you may want to branch out so you can continue building your business. That’s why social media is so important. Here’s how it works:

  1. Use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to share products and opportunity. Post your personal testimonials and those of others. Make sure you follow our policies when you do this and please contact your Nikken Customer Services Team if you have questions or are unsure about the rules. Make your posts short and sweet. Remember that a photo is worth a hundred words. Set your posts to “public” so everyone can see them, not just your friends. The whole point is to attract new people.
  2. Check daily for responses and follow up with those who reply or “like” your social media posts. Gather contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers, so you can connect privately.
  3. Enroll those who are interested in products as Registered Customers and enroll those who are also interested in the potential income opportunity as Consultants.

For those who have already made a purchase and/or enrolled with you, follow up and see how they’re doing. Remind new Nikken Customers to re-order or sign up for Autoship.
