Want to simplify your life?
As I continue to age and look back over my life, I start to realize that when we are young, we want it all. We want to get a college education, get a job, have a family, travel around the world, and do what we want, when we want to do it. There is only one problem: Money!
Money is the world’s equalizer. Without it, you can’t do very much, and with a lot, your options open up tremendously. It is like oxygen. You can’t live without it but we don’t have to have pure oxygen to stay alive. However, the more we have the better our bodies seem to operate.
The next problem is time. We all have the same 24 hours in a day. What we do with our time is at our discretion – that is unless we have a job. Then we do with our time what our employer wants us to do as we become slaves to the employer.
So where is that illusive job where you can have it all? Time, money, family, travel, health, working at your own pace on your own time? It does exist, but I it seems to be that we are not supposed to know about it when we enter the work force. And, I can understand why.
Imagine that you come out of college with a Bachelor of Science degree. You’re ready to go to work. You’ve been conditioned all your life that when you get that job, you’re going to be required to get up early and go to bed late because you have to make that proper entrance at the job and stay late to impress the boss. There will be the required social gatherings, off-site meetings, impromptu staff meetings on Friday nights, and working lunch meetings to attend. You are ready for it, but first you have to find that job.
Now, let’s consider network marketing. You come out of college with a Bachelor of Science degree or maybe just got your high school diploma. You join a company like Shaklee. You use the products to maintain your health and you share them with some of your like-minded friends who in turn have been sharing them with their friends and neighbors. You get together once a week at the local watering pub to share thoughts about the products and listen to people who have been helped with various health issues. Maybe these are issues like more energy, lost weight, can bench press longer and more weight, run faster and longer without getting tired, etc. Oh, and once a month you collect a check and double check your bank balance.
Sometimes you can’t make the local pub meeting so you travel to the beach with some friends and skype the meeting. Sometime you go to another country and share the products with your traveling companions who like your style of living, and they in turn share it with their peers. Your bonus check increases and you’re thankful it is on auto-deposit so you don’t have to be bothered with going to the bank every month.
Is this life too simple? Is that why people don’t get involved with a network marketing company? Or, is it they don’t know which company to join? For me, it was the last reason, so I joined one, then two, and found out the real mission of the company as well as the quality of the products.
That is when I finally found Shaklee. Oh, I have seen companies come and go. I have seen jobs come and go. One thing that I have found is that some companies have longevity and stability. One of those companies is Shaklee. A quality, all natural company that is now poised to rapidly expand. Don’t you want to join me?
