SO AWESOME TO MEET YOU, I'M KYLE BERG!
Have you wondered if there’s MORE to life?
That there’s something BIG out there waiting for you or something is burning inside of you to make an impact?
That was totally me back in 2001 while I sat at my desk during school in Wisconsin. You many be here cause you want to hear all about what I'm doing to have success online in my different businesses, but first, I'd like to share with you my story and who I am and where I've been that led me to where we are today.
So I ended up going to college for exercise science and kinesiology. I ended up skipping out on class a lot to go workout at the gym they had there. I was bored going to the classes that didn't have anything to do with my major and ultimately dropped out. Had many different job, but with a huge passion for health and fitness. It was an easy choice since I love helping people get healthy and fit as well as empowering them to live their best life. I've been in the fitness industry for over 15 years, consulting for over 10 years. My background is in fitness as a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Sports Nutritionist, Nutrition Consultant and NPC Physique Athlete and have coached over hundreds of people whether it be in the gym, from the stage or online.
Network Marketing Found me pretty quick. When I saw it, it just made sense. I loved the idea of working for myself and helping others. Making my own schedule and working when I wanted. I was never a big fan of being told want to do and it drives me nuts waking up each morning to someone else's schedule. Working long days was not the way I wanted to spend the rest of my life until I was 65 so I could maybe retire.
It was in that first company I read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and a couple other books. After reading those books my mind and vision to what was possible grew even more! I started to think very differently about being an Employee vs an Entrepreneur!
So as most people who catch the Network Marketing bug, I thought this is going to be a cake walk I, got this and I’m gonna be a millionaire fast! I went and told everyone I knew; Little did I know network marketing the “old school” way was a bit harder than it’s advertised.
At work one day a friend and co worker at the time invited me to a meeting for another network marketing company. My first hotel meeting I was exposed to in Network Marketing Environment was odd. There was a weird white board set up on a stage, people wearing suits and red ties everywhere. After seeing a presentation, near the end the man presenting named Eric talked about the different levels in the company and what the average income was and when Eric a retired engineer said that they were earning somewhere around $250,000/yr and it took them around 3 years to get there, I grabbed an application form and started filling it out fast. This company and team later formed a new Leadership company. I went on dozens appointments (going into people’s homes and showing them a presentation) and ended up helping families out but no one wanted part of the business.
I was out doing home business presentations 4-5 nights a week while working a crazy work schedule on top of that and trying to balance everything else.
I realized fast that Network Marketing had to be treated like a business if I wanted it to pay me like one but the difference between my Business and my JOB was the fact that it could be my 5 year plan verses my 40 year plan. I liked the 5 plan better and I knew I was going to build something BIG.
I later came to realize that I wasn’t passionate building that company because it wasn’t suited to ME. I was trying to make it work but the worst thing you can do is to try to fit a square in a round hole.
After being in the Industry for a few years, I tried a many things and learned a lot, mostly what didn't work and that “old school approach wasn't for me” I understood more about the profession and I went on a journey to find something that matched ME.
If you’re looking to do something new or venture into working from home for the very first time…. I encourage you find something that you’re extremely passionate about.
Taking My Business Online
In April of 2012 I was so exhausted of building a business with the “old school house meeting way”. An old mentor of mine reached out to me with how he was having success building his business so I joined up with him. Which lead me to the awesomeness of online marketing! I needed ways to build my Home Business online and I found some Entrepreneurs that actually had found ways to attract buyers and reps through the Internet…..Exactly what I wanted to do! Through hard work, learning new things and taking action I had qualified for an opportunity to go down to a Master Mind Event in Miami In January 2013. This event was mind blowing being able to learn and pick the brain of some of the best online markets as well as build some great friendships.
I’ll be honest, learning the Internet side of marketing your Business is not easy but it was worth it. I took me about 10 months to really get the hang of HOW to make it all work but once I found my strategy and got committed to making it work, some really awesome things started to happen.
- I started generating New Leads Daily!
- I started Recruiting 1 New Rep Each Week (that was 50% more than what I was doing before)
- Sponsored 11 New Reps in the past 13 days was recognized as a top recruiter in my business
- Sponsored 24 New Reps in under 30 days was recognized again as a top producer in business
- I started to get more qualified prospects reaching out to me wanting to join my business
- I started having more people and customers wanting and buying what I was offering
Having a good Online Marketing system for the team has really BOOSTED our results and as a leader in this Industry I believe it’s our job to embrace the changes in technology with Social Media being one of our biggest Networking Assets!
From 2012 to Now I’ve been exposed to many tools and courses and the ones that I recommend if you’re thinking about taking your Business Online. It’s easier to learn from someone who’s already been down the road that you’re looking to go down!
So since I went online to build my dreams and businesses all I can say is what a breath of fresh air!!!! No more chasing people! Now people just come to me and want what I have to offer them. I've earned bonuses, achieved some great levels in my business and have done it with less time and stress than most people.
I've been blessed with so many amazing people in my life. My wife and best friend Bethany have a HUGE passion for life, fun, family, traveling, health and fitness. We happen to take several trips a year now whether it be with our friends or building our relationship with each other. Traveling is one of our passions. Being able to live life with passion in a large part is due to My Business, but isn’t it cool to make your Passions a reality and live a life on your terms?
It’s Great to meet you my New Friend. Let me know how I can add value to you or your Business!
