Goodbye Timecard, Hello Residual Income

Think back to your first job – were you a babysitter, a paperboy, or punching the time card at McDonalds? In each of these jobs you were paid by the hour or to complete a job. When you were on the clock you got paid, but the moment you entered your employee number into the computer for your break the clock stopped. These jobs along with many more salary type professions are considered active income.

shaklee-become-memberAre you always Active?

Active income is when you are paid for a certain amount of work. You work for one hour and receive one hour’s wages. To increase your income you must either work more or find a way to increase the amount you are paid per hour of work. Your income is a direct result of your actions. Active income is also limited, we all have 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week. You can only work so many hours so therefore the time that you can be paid for your actions directly limits your active income. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get paid when you are not on the clock? You can.

Hello Residual Income

In all things there are opposites and residual or passive income is the opposite of active income. In residual income you receive payment for an action long after the action has been completed. The rich and famous enjoy residual income from song rights, book sales, and patents. But you don’t have to be famous to enjoy the benefits of residual income.

Potential Sources of Residual Income

  • Advertisements, subscriptions, donations or affiliate links on your blog or website
  • Purchasing property and leasing or renting out the space
  • eBook sales
  • Investment programs with interest
  • Photography royalties for stock photos
  • Network marketing opportunities

Almost a Fairy Tale

Now don’t let the word passive fool you. With residual income you have the potential to earn money while lounging on the beach, but you need to put in the effort to get your investment rolling. Choose an opportunity that matches your strengths and has the potential for growth.

In network marketing you invest in the right product and share that product with customers that connect to its purpose and value. You move products or services through a vein of like minded people that become loyal to a product or service. As the customers return to the product again and again long after your initial contact and sale your residual income grows. The only limit to residual income is how much you do and are willing to help other people.

Freedom

Residual income allows you to free yourself from the timecard. As you grow your business you could go from a part time job that brings you full time pay to being financially independent. Whether this provides you with freedom from debts, the ability to move your location, or change your family lifestyle – investing in a residual income business is a postive investment in your future.

Make the Decision and Get Healthy

No one says “Man, I hope I can get in great shape for just a little while and then gain back all the weight I lost.” Maybe you had a time in your life where you worked really hard for your wedding pictures to look perfect or the look great on a vacation. Did you stay committed to your health after those big events? Why not? The answer lies in your underlying motivation.

All or nothing
Going for all or nothing

What Motivates You?

If you are trying to slim down for a reunion or other “look-at-me” life moment chances are you will relapse into your old habits and the weight will come back, perhaps even faster than you gained it before. Starving yourself, staying on a liquid or highly restrictive diet will cause you to lose weight, but it won’t make you healthy and strong.

Take a look at your health. Physically are you satisfied with your body? Does your body enable you to pursue your adventures or does it cause you daily frustration? Maybe your doctor is the one telling you to lose weight, but you are fine with your body. Do you wish you had more energy or could take care of yourself without relying on others?

You can change. You can lose weight and become strong, but without motivation from within yourself you will not change your lifestyle and improve your health in the long run.

Commit to Yourself

If you want to lose weight you must make a commitment to yourself. Make yourself accountable and share your goal with your friends or a more anonymous online community. Change will not happen overnight, but one step followed by another step in the right direction will give you results.

Don’t let celebrities fool you – there is no magic bullet to getting healthy, but there are also extremes that should be avoided. Is it sustainable to exercise at the gym 7-days a week for several hours? Individuals on realty TV are able to do so only because of the non-realty of the situations they are in. Adjust your expectations that it will take time to lose weight, but if you do it right you won’t have to do it again.

Sustainable Success

Keeping things simple, you want to look to a weight loss program that is simple and easy to follow. Complicated dosing or restrictive diets will be challenging to follow long term. To kick off your turn to health look to the Shaklee 180 weight loss system. It is simple, supplies all your required daily recommended vitamins and minerals, and even tastes good.  Your Shaklee consultant will be another person committed to helping you reach your goal of living a healthy, happy life. The Shaklee 180 weight loss system is is not a magic pill, but a proven program that will allow you to lose weight while regaining energy and providing your body with the fuel it needs to stay committed to staying healthy.

Commit today. Join the network that has helped thousands of individuals just like you make a change, and commit to a healthy you.

Freedom – Doing what you love to do

At the top of Sherman Peak in California
Enjoying freedom

Freedom

Let freedom ring.  If this is the case then why do we suppress it?  Why do we not take it for all it is worth?  Our ancestors as well as myself and family have fought for it and many have died so that we can have freedom.

Now it seems that today, all we do is stick ourselves into world of work, more work, sleep, and more work.  Also known as a rut.  For those who think the rut is comfortable, then this is not for you.  For those who want to get out of the rut, to live, to be healthy, to be free and do what you love to do, then please read on.

Over the years, we have had a flood of economic downturns and upturns.  Each time we seem to lose more than we have gained, and many of us have lost thousands and thousands of dollars even though our financial advisers just tell us to hang in there.  Then there comes the family crisis, the need for a new car, clothes for the kids, a new refrigerator, or some other financial crisis.   We need the money, so we use it up.  This leaves us with little money for retirement or savings accounts.

We got the kids through college, we paid off most of the loans.  Now we are left with aging parents and our own health struggles.  Isn’t it time to change all of this?  Why can’t we help our aging parents who are living beyond their money and at the same time pay off our mortgages and credit card debts?

We can and there is a way.  I have decided for me it is going to be through Shaklee.   Being a product of the product, and knowing that study after study has proven the effectiveness of the products.  And this all comes without the hype of highly paid athletes and movies stars.  All I had to do is talk with those individuals who have been in Shaklee for 20 or more years.  For the most part, they are the healthiest, happiest  people I know.  They seldom go to the doctor.  They are active in society.  They still run their businesses and farms.  They enjoy life.  They relish the idea of doing things.  They like to go to conferences to visit each other as if they were at a big family reunion.  In fact, Shaklee is just one big, healthy family.

The Shaklee family can tell story after story of someone who has been stricken with a serious illness, tried the products,  and found them to be effective.  Do these stories make the headlines?  Of course not.  They are part of the family.  Do you put your family details out to the news media?  Most likely not.  Do they brag about their business and how much money they are making?  Most do not.  Do you shout out your family income on the rooftops?  If you do, then Shaklee is not for you.

If you are the type of person who just wants to do what you want to do when you want to do it, then Shaklee is a vehicle that is going to get you there.  Is it glorified, glamorous, and full of hype?  Not on your life!   It is quiet, healthy, dignified company with products that are helping thousands and thousands of people both physically and financially.  Many become financially independent and many are customers.  That is what Shaklee is all about.

What is in it for you?  Freedom, health, financial independence, doing what you want to do when you want to do it.  What is your hobby?  What is your passion?  Do you really want to do it or do you want to work to make someone else’s dream come true?

If you are like me and just want to keep things simple and maintain your independence and freedom, then I would urge you to contact me and let me show you the simple, independent life.

 

Save $$$ when you use Basic H2

Saving money with Basic H2 from Shaklee
All organic, non-toxic, biodegradable, chemical free and ultra concentrated Basic H2

Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate

Many all-purpose cleaners may contain toxins that can be absorbed through the skin or inhaled. Synthetic solvents may cause hormone disruptions.

Organic solvents such as butyl cellosolve are neurotoxins and nasal irritants. Another toxin, morpholine, can cause liver or kidney damage. Glass cleaners contain ammonia, a poison that can irritate skin, eyes, and the respiratory system.

Your Shaklee Home

When it comes to keeping your house clean, and the earth safe, you shouldn’t have to choose.  All of Shaklee products are non-toxic, cleaning choices that are safe, powerful, green, and smart. Safe for you, your home, your planet.

Shaklee Basic-H2 is one of the most effective all around biodegradable cleaners that I know. I have tried many but nothing compares. Below is a list of all the uses of Shaklee Basic-H2. Since there are over 1,000 uses it has been difficult to compile a complete list.

First, how should Basic-H2 generally be used? The genius of Basic-H2 is that it makes water, the “universal solvent,” penetrate dirt and grime more quickly while then rinsing away easily and leaving no toxic residue. Intensely concentrated, Basic-H2’s cleaning power is unleashed when it is diluted in water to the strength required for the cleaning job at hand (spot-test first).

Before I get to my list of how to mix this great cleaner I wanted to share a testimony of one of my clients. He has been using Basic-H2 for years and one day I asked him what he used it for.  His reply was basic, “Everything that I want to clean or protect.”  As you can see the uses really are limitless.

Here are some General Uses for Basic-H2

CLEANING JOBS: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon to a quart of warm water

WINDOWS, MIRRORS: 2 to 4 drops to a pint of water
