Like your kid getting his first hit at Little League. Or your daughter learning to ride her bicycle all by herself. And if you’re blessed enough, they will have other special moments as they grow and mature.
Good things happen to our adult friends and co-workers also. Like your colleague landing that big account they were working on. Or maybe an acquaintance landed a much better job or; maybe a friend quit work all together because his side-hustle was beginning to gain traction.
Nowadays, with the economy like it is coupled with the work force being generally dissatisfied with low wages, few benefits and, the high cost of everything; just about 80% of the folks we speak with are looking for a way to:
1. Find a real business they can start part-time.
2. Find help in getting that business off the ground.
3. Eventually scaling that business so they could leave 9 to 5.
4. Experience what true financial freedom is like.
5. Get out of debt.
Not unreasonable requests. Thousands of people do it each year. And it’s getting to a point where companies that need workers are starting to have a difficult time hiring them.
The internet is changing what our careers and our lives should look like.
One note of caution though. You must be very careful what type of business you try to start. Especially if it involves any network marketing.
The failure rate for networkers across the board is over 90%! More about this in other blog postings. Just be careful…
Fortunately, after more than 20 years, Lisa and I have found a couple of things that work for us. We share all that information with our team members should they decide to partner with us in something.
Anyway, here are some things to look for:
1. It must be low-cost to start.
2. It must have some kind of product for sals. And please, forget programs where you’re sending money directly to your upline. And forget about buying eBooks or courses from some ‘guru’ that will make you rich. Ain’t gonna happen.
3. The product must be shipped by the company…not you. You shouldn’t need to stock anything.
4. The company should pay at least 50% commission or more.
5. There should be marketing material included. Plus, a back office and a website you can show people.
6. Their customer service should be available by phone at least 5 days weekly. And, they must provide answers to the questions you have in a timely manner.
7. Does the company manufacture its own products and/or have an exclusive right to sell the items?
8. Are their products Patented?
9. Have you googled the owners of the company and the managers to see if they have experience and either good or questionable backgrounds. What’s their BBB rating?
This is just a short list so why do it? Because you don’t want to get all excited
about your new company only to have it fold or have them change the pay plan on
you or change the commissions or get shut down by the SEC. All this does seem
frustrating, I know. Caution first!
However, if you look at Lisa and my main web page there will be a couple of options there for you to safely consider. Go Here
More in our next post very soon.
All the best,
