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.

Becoming the Consistent Product

A strong foundation is required to be a successful network marketer

Network marketing starts with a connection. The person you connect with can make you wonderful promises, tug at your heartstrings, and make you want to join them on their quest to improve the world. But, what if they don’t keep their promises. Why won’t they return your phone calls? What happened to that ideal connection?

Network marketing gets a bad reputation because some individuals do not keep their promises. They scam others into believing in something that isn’t real and never deliver what is promised. Integrity is everything in the business of relationships. From the first meeting throughout all transactions and interactions your success will be built by honesty, integrity, and consistency.

Honesty

Honesty must run through your life and business. Keeping commitments, like being on a three-way call with a new recruit or delivering a customer’s first purchase must all be done when promised. If your word is compromised, then trust has been broken. Be real with people about yourself and your product and customers will develop a strong connection with you.

Integrity

Your motives must be sincere. Many individuals join a network marketing group with the goal of making additional or substantial income. That is a desirable goal, but not if you seek to harm others to line your pocketbook. Scamming and taking advantage of people do not grow a successful, sustainable business.

Consistency

I go to my favorite restaurant time and time again because I know that they will always deliver a consistent, delicious product. Knowing that I will have a positive experience keeps me loyal. You want to become the favorite restaurant that your clients can trust to deliver a consistent relationship and product.

True success comes from real relationships. As a successful network marketer my goal is to work with people who are looking for more in life, living a healthier life, and getting back to nature is my goal and I am committed to helping those individuals who are looking for the same thing.

By finding a company that matches his core values with all natural healthy products, his business is a natural extension that has provided him with great business success.

The second, but equally important decision in becoming a network marketer is to select a coach that will help you succeed. Experience, company knowledge, a track record of successful mentoring, and a personal connection with your coach are all factors that should be evaluated when joining a marketing team. Your coach’s passion and experience should inspire and propel you to success.  Look for a coach that is willing to set goals with you and help you achieve them.

Lastly, examine why you want to share the products with others. Are you looking to improve the lifestyles of those you know or improve your financial situation, or maybe both?  For Wes, the answer was both. Shaklee has allowed him to let his quest for health bring him financial freedom and improve the health of his family and the community by providing environmentally safe product s that are guaranteed to work.

Healthy Trans Fats Slash Diabetes Risk

Healthy Trans Fats Slash Diabetes Risk

Is “healthy trans fat” an oxymoron?  Maybe not.  Although we’ve learned to opt for zero trans fats and search labels for deadly hydrogenated oils, there may be an exception to the no trans fats rule.  Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health have identified a naturally occurring trans fat in dairy that may substantially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

For many years, studies have shown an association between eating dairy products and lower diabetesrisk.  But how dairy protects against diabetes remained a mystery.  The answer may lie in dairy’s fat.

Trans-palmitoleic acid is a fatty acid found in milk, cheese, yogurt, and butter.  It’s not produced by the body.  It only comes from your diet.

Palmitoleic acid, or trans-palmitoleate, is found almost exclusively in naturally-occurring dairy and meat trans fats.  Unlike trans fat found in hydrogenated vegetable oils, it has not been linked to higher heart disease risk.  In fact, palmitoleic acid is heart healthy.  It also has anti-microbial properties and is a key compound in cell communication.

In a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Harvard researchers analyzed datafrom the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), a prospective cohort study designed to investigate risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease in the U.S.

In 2000-2002, they recruited 6,814 adults aged 45–84 years from six regions of the country.  They measured circulating blood levels of trans-palmitoleate.

At the end of 5 years participants with the highest levels of trans-palmitoleate had 6.4% higher LDL cholesterol.  But their triglycerides were 19% lower, their fasting insulin levels were 9% lower, and their systolic blood pressure was 2.4 Hg lower.

Compared to those with the lowest level of the fat, those with the highest levels had half the risk of developing diabetes. 

The results confirmed an earlier Harvard study reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine.  In that study, researchers examined 3,736 participants in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-funded Cardiovascular Health Study.  They had been followed for 20 years to evaluate risk factors for cardiovascular diseases in older adults.

At the beginning of that study, higher levels of trans-palmitoleic acid were associated with healthier levels of blood cholesterol, inflammatory markers, insulin levels, and insulin sensitivity.

During follow-up, participants with the highest levels of trans-palmitoleic acid had a 60% lower risk of developing diabetes.

When the researchers combined the data from the two studies they found that each .05% increase in trans-palmitoleate in the blood levels was associated with a 34% lower risk of diabetes.

The authors called for additional observational studies and controlled trials, noting the magnitude of the association between trans-palmitoleic acid and reduced diabetes risk was striking.  They noted that this trans fat seems to have an extremely strong protective effect, stronger than other things known to be beneficial against diabetes.

In the meantime, enjoy full-fat milk, cheese, and yogurt, preferably from grassfed animals.  And you can add reducing diabetes risk to the 10 other healthy reasons to eat real butter.

But continue to avoid artificial trans fats from hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils.
