Concepts of a Traditional Job vs Residual Income

Unlike a traditional JOB you don`t spend the time going to and from work, and you get paid for helping others. You also get paid for that help every month, just as the Movie stars/singers get paid royalties on their productions.

Lets say you were a saw patients 8 hrs a day.Your pay would be limited to those 8 hrs, right? At $50 an hr x40=$2,000 a week. You have a family and want to spend time with them...

DO you want to work an extra 20 hrs a week? Or do you hire someone else to come in and you get $10 from his $50/hr .

Now your making an extra $400/wk. Hire 2 more people and now you have $800+$400 a week. Does this hit home?

What if you were a college student. All that homework, a girlfriend and occassionally wanting to go home for a cooked meal.... Wouldn`t it be better to have others helping you make the money then getting a 9-5 JOB and trying to fit it all in ?

It`s easy ... In the traditional job you trade hours for pay. You want to get paid this week you put in the time, you need more money you put in more time. Where as in the non traditional job you will get paid for something you did last month, last year, even years ago. That is called Residual income.

“I would rather have one percent
of 100 people’s efforts than 100
percent of my own.”
— Andrew Carnegie

The meaning of Networkmarketing.

What is Networkmarketing all about ?

With so many network marketing companies and their products bombarding the marketplace it is easy to forget the real "meaning" of the network marketing business. Network marketing has always been about helping others achieve their dreams. The juices, vitamins, make-up or other products and the network marketing companies that promote them are simply the vehicle for moving towards the dream of the individual. True network marketing involves opportunity; however, we have grossly misinterpreted the concept of opportunity over the years.

Opportunity is not the latest health or dietary supplement, but instead opportunity is the means of being in business for yourself. It is the power of leveraging that business so that it becomes a vehicle that transports you from the circumstances of today to the goals of tomorrow.

Opportunity has always required that an individual capitalize on the opportunity as it presents itself. Capitalizing on an opportunity requires action and like it or not, action require effort. In its purest form, network marketing is all about helping others capitalize on this opportunity of being in business for themselves and guiding them towards their goals.

People don't join a network marketing business for the juice or vitamins, they join the business for the possibilities of what could be and to change their situation and help bring their goals to life. When we hype up the opportunity others become disillusioned and instead of being life givers, we find ourselves destroying the aspirations that brought those people to our business in the first place.

When we approach our network marketing business with the proper perspective, we will more easily put our business into the proper bearing. We are not successful unless we are helping others achieve success as well.

The dreams of others are much too fragile to be handled without care.
With this .... Follow your dreams .

The American Dream

Where has it gone?

When I was growing up I was told that in order to be an adult with a secure future I must go to school,get a degree,work hard for a company for 25-30 years, then I could retire with a pension and live well in my old age. Robert Kiyosaki talks about this in his book Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Well Guess what.... my father had that dream too and after over 30 years with IBM most of his money goes to paying health benefits. Most Americans are lucky to have them but even with them people are chosing between medicine or care over food due to the high co-pays.

Our parents had 1 job and stuck with the company and the company usually stuck by them. Now according to the Dept. of Labor the average American has 10-14 jobs . We are liabilities to companies now. When was the last time you spoke to a person on the phone and not spend 15 min. pushing buttons and still not get to where you wanted to go? Or went to the local store and check yourself out using the machine yourself ? We are disposable.

There is a new wave of Employment out there. A revised American Dream if you will. Same Dream different means to getting it. This used to be risky but now many are making far better lives for themselves.

Follow me as we discuss this further.
