Law of Attraction Secrets Help Trevor Millar Build His ViSalus MLM Business
This morning I had the privilege of interviewing one of my long-time friends and business associates – Trevor Millar. Trevor has been a personal friend of mine and Law of Attraction student for over 10 years. He has manifested a multitude of successes in his life since becoming a student of personal development, and the Law of Attraction.
From manifesting a dream job of becoming a Cruise Director for Holland America Line, to manifesting the girl of his dreams and now his wife – Becky Millar. Trevor has had many successes with the Law of Attraction, and his latest venture is building a network marketing downline in a company called ViSalus.
I interviewed Trevor to see how he has been using the Law of Attraction in the MLM / Network Marketing company ViSalus that he is building with his wife.
PAUL: So Trevor, tell us a little bit about ViSalus – the network company that you are promoting – let’s start with when you first joined ViSalus and what drew you to the network marketing industry and this particular company specifically?
TREVOR: Having been in business for a good number of years, I kept finding myself looking at different network marketing companies. I couldn’t deny the beauty of residual income and I saw that if you take an unbiased look at network marketing, it just makes good business sense. Having been a salesman however, I knew one of the biggest keys to success was sharing a product or service that you believed strongly in. For example, somewhat ironically, I love Coca-Cola, and always knew I’d be great at selling that, as it’s easy to talk about something you love. My problem in the past with network marketing had been the nature of the products; I hadn’t been able to find a product I loved.
ViSalus started popping up all over facebook early last year. I saw a buddy of mine from high-school post about a free BMW he’d got. That didn’t do much for me, I thought it was some kind of gimmick, but then I saw his wife’s picture on facebook a month or so later with her new BMW. That’s when I started paying closer attention. Another woman I knew posted a ‘before’ pic on facebook, then 90 days later an ‘after’ pic where she had lost 40 lbs.
A month after that I saw that same woman collect a $25,000 bonus cheque, a short four months after starting with the company, this again made me take notice.Finally, a couple that my wife and I are close to invited us over to their place to get the full ViSalus pitch. We tasted these milkshakes, watched a DVD, and I got it. The simplicity was undeniable. Press blend on a blender, press play on a DVD, and your job is done. Having been a Cruise Director on ships, I am very comfortable speaking to crowds, but I knew that a successful network marketing business needed to be duplicatable, I needed to be able to walk away from it and it still work. Pressing blend and play, anyone can do that, especially when this Challenge actually saves their friends money.
39 days later, I too was driving a BMW paid for by ViSalus and making about $2000 a month in residuals.
PAUL: Now, you’ve been into personal development for over 10 years now, and constantly working on your mental game. What kind of an advantage do you think your mental game gave you when building your ViSalus business?
TREVOR: Really, it’s everything. While my success with this company isn’t near where it’s going to be, and I know I need to keep growing in order to get it there, I’ve said many times to people on my team that the prime reason for any success I’ve seen is all the personal development I’ve put myself through over the last 15 years.
It’s fair to say that I never would have even considered this line of work, or working on cruise ships for that matter, without reading books like The Science of Getting Rich or Think and Grow Rich. It’s through exposure to ideas like ‘anything the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve’ that allow the inner child to let loose a little and start dreaming again. I had a pretty dull view of the world in the years leading up to a realization school never taught me that, ‘Wow! Books can actually teach you something useful!’
Moreover, ViSalus is all about the 90 Day Challenge. I did a crazy thing a few years ago and went on a Skytrain here in Vancouver to try and inspire commuters with a positive message (video on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZCadeE_2nE ). It was a test of courage. One of the aspects of that message was to set a 90 day goal and go after it. Then years later ViSalus comes into my life asking everyone to set 90 Day Challenge goals and go after them. This company resonated with me because it’s got ‘personal development’ written all over it.
PAUL: In October 2011, I shared with you a program called “Your Wish is Your Command” (YWIYC). At the time I told you how impressed I was with the training in YWIYC and how in over 15 years of personal development research and studies, and over 10 years of experience in using the Law of Attraction I have never heard anything as complete and amazing as the YWIYC program. What did you think of the YWIYC when you first heard it?
TREVOR: It blew me away, and I’ll echo your question back to you. In over 15 years of personal development and studying things like the Law of Attraction, Your Wish Is Your Command has it all. It’s by far the most comprehensive; A to Z, without missing any steps, program of it’s kind that I know of. I’ve shared the audio with a few friends and I normally preface it with ‘you know how much I’ve studied this type of material, trust me when I say to set aside your doubt and make this yours’.
I think the biggest thing I’ve got from it however is that my wife has listened to it with me a couple of times. My wife has always been supportive of some of my beliefs that may, at first glance, seem a bit ‘out there’, but having Kevin Trudeau explain this material in the way he does has allowed for some richness and great context from which my wife and I can now work together.
PAUL: Hahaha, my next question was, I remember that you also ended up sharing the program with your wife Becky. What did she think of YWIYC when she listened to it?
TREVOR: My wife is a professional singer. We met on cruise ships. She’s an amazing talent, look Becky Millar up on YouTube. Having worked on ships for her whole adult life, she had a charmed, but institutionalized existence. She didn’t need to set big life goals and go after them, she was great where she was. Marrying me, and moving to land, changed all that. We have been working together on the Body by Vi Challenge, and I think that having the YWIYC influence early on in building this thing together has meant a lot.
Setting out on any venture is pretty much synonymous with the fact that things aren’t always going to go the way you planned. Being able to have both of us turn to the mindset learned in YWIYC has saved us a lot of worrying. As I’m sure a lot of your readers know, having a husband (or vice-versa) who buys into the LoA, while the wife buys into stress and worry, gets everyone nowhere quickly. YWIYC has bridged a gap for sure. Now we’re using these same techniques to not only grow our businesses, but to get Becky back into the spotlight she deserves.
PAUL: How has your ViSalus business been doing since Oct 2011 after you listened to Your Wish is Your Command?
TREVOR: Again, we’re not done growing by any means, but business has been great. While working on ViSalus part-time, I’ve built myself up to the rank of National Director, which basically means I’m making about $3500 a month. Not bad for a part-time gig. I’ve also shared YWIYC with some of my team members, and not surprisingly, those who have taken it most to heart are now leaders on my team.
The principles covered in YWIYC have helped me in my 90 Day Challenges too. My first challenge was just to drink a couple of tasty milkshakes a day and see what happened. I lost 20lbs and got to my ideal body weight. My next challenge was to compete in two Tough Mudder races in 90 days. I’d never run any race in my life. I pulled it off. Currently I’m on day 15 of 90 days in a row of Bikram Yoga. I’d only ever tried it twice before this run. All of these challenges came into reality because of the principles of personal development I’ve acquired over the years, including YWIYC.
It comes down to the fact that you’ll never become the person you dream of becoming by staying the same way you are now. Good ‘self-help’ materials can be the catalyst you need to change.
PAUL: What kind of things have you been able to manifest within and outside of your ViSalus business by applying some of the principles taught in “Your Wish is Your Command”?
TREVOR: Although YWIYC wasn’t around yet, I was using some of the same principles when I got a job as a Cruise Director on luxury cruise liners. In 2005 I was at a point where I wasn’t fulfilled in the job I was doing, so I applied to work on a cruise ship. I had a friend who worked for Holland America Line, and after a few phone interviews, I got a job as Cruise Staff which is the lowest rung on the entertainment ladder, making about $50 a day. This was a big pay cut from my last job, but as soon as I got the job, I said to a few friends, “Watch, I’ll be Cruise Director within a year.” They laughed, as this was an unreasonable goal… I’d never worked in the entertainment business before, or on cruise ships, and the CD position, being in charge of the entertainment department, and the face of the ship, seemed like a pipe-dream.
The same day I got on my first ship I started saying to myself, “I am Cruise Director.” Sure, I imagine this puts out some kind of intangible ‘vibe’ for the universe to pick up and act on, but it also made me start ‘acting as-if’. I definitely didn’t have the skills required to be a CD, but going in knowing I would one day be one, I started looking for my deficiencies, and acted towards fixing them. Soon enough, ‘coincidences’ and synchronicities started happening that lead me to my dream job.
After my first contract I was promoted to Assistant CD and was put on the same ship as a good friend of mine who was the CD. Thank God I was put on his ship, because as it turns out, I didn’t have the skills required to even be an assistant. Had I been put on anyone else’s ship, I would have been fired. Three months into that contract the Cruise Director’s grandmother passed away. She’d been fighting illness for quite some time. While he was gone for her funeral, I was promoted to CD temporarily. I did a pretty good job. In a couple of weeks the CD came back, but he only had two weeks left of his contract. After that, another CD was slated to join the ship. As it turned out, the Captain and Hotel Manager didn’t like the guy they were sending, so they asked the head office to let me stay on as CD for an additional 4 months. I accepted the offer, and remained CD until I left that company.
It took me eight months from the time I stated with the company to land the CD position, well under my one year goal.
PAUL: That’s an awesome accomplishment in a short period of time. How do you find the training in that course relates to entrepreneurs and especially entrepreneurs building a network marketing company like ViSalus?
TREVOR: I’d bet that an entrepreneur’s mindset, whether they’re conscious of it or not, is probably the sole factor for success in any venture. Yes, it takes hard work, but a persons mind needs to be in the right place for that work to get done. The training in YWIYC works on many levels. Look at some of the basics Kevin Trudeau lays down such as, ‘Who do you listen to?’ This is something that applies not only in personal development, but also in money management. It cracks me up when people take financial advice from minimum wage employees just because they work for a big name firm. The ‘Training Balance Scale’ in YWIYC also helps you move through tough times, knowing that the next ‘thing’ is probably just ‘off the radar’, so don’t worry about the ‘how’ and move forward with the same ‘I am the _____________’ attitude I had when striving for CD. Work with the end in mind, and plow through the seeming obstacles.
PAUL: Who would you recommend should listen to “Your Wish is Your Command”?
TREVOR: Anyone who wasn’t raised in a secret society!? I say that tongue-in-cheek, but really… You’re either growing, or you’re shrinking. There are lots of people who believe they like shrinking, who believe that staying as you are is the safe bet, and these types of people seem to have their challenges in life force-fed to them. My experience is that someone who makes a conscious decision to purposely challenge themselves, whether it’s a health challenge, or opening their mind to new ideas that may at first seem uncomfortable, these people have lives that seem to make them happy. Ultimately, I think life is about finding that space within you that is happiness, and living from that spot all the time. If that seems like a cool option, YWIYC is a great road map.
