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.

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.

 

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.

What is Shaklee for Health and Freedom

Shaklee Income Opportunity
Is this a dream or reality?

What Is Shaklee?

When it comes down to it, Shaklee really has only two products – health and freedom.

It’s hard to decide which one we love talking about more!

Let’s start with the products. They’re spectacular – pure, potent and proven to work. Their Nutrition, Weight Management, Home Care and Personal Care products carry a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. When a product is this good, you can’t help but share it with everyone you know. That makes Shaklee products the perfect foundation for an amazing income opportunity.

The latest Shaklee innovation is Vivix™ Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic dietary supplement. It’s the most exciting example we’ve seen of a product that can truly help you create a limitless stream of income. And with the Tru-Infinity™ bonus program, the fifth way to earn in Shaklee — our ability to earn just got infinitely more exciting.

Beginning a home-based business in Shaklee is the smartest move we ever made. We now have the ability to control our own destiny, determine our own priorities, set goals and achieve them, advance and increase our own income based on what’s important to us. And everything we do to achieve our own goals helps someone else achieve theirs. We do well, by doing good. It’s the most satisfying approach to earning an income we’ve ever known.

But we didn’t come to this conclusion and make a decision without a few questions. We expect you probably have some too.

I’d welcome the chance to talk with you about your situation, find out what you’re looking for – health, freedom, or both – and see if this is right for you. So click on “Contact Me” and let me know if I can help!

So you joined a network marketing company!  Congratulations!  Did your sponsor tell you to make a list of all your friends and family and start hitting them up with your product?  Did you know that your friends and family are the hardest people to recruit into your business?

I was talking to a network marketer the other day and we were discussing these very issues.  I was asking him how he was marketing his business and he told me that he made a list of his friends and family.  I asked him how it was going.

His response was classic, “Great!”

I asked why he was calling me since I wasn’t on his friends and family list.

Again a classic response was “We have to talk to everyone!”

I asked him how he got my name.

“I saw you were a network marketer on LinkedIn”

I asked, “What is your point?”

He then told me that I should join his network marketing company.

I asked him why.

He then proceeded to  tell me how good his product was, how it was helping people’s health, and it was a product that is ahead of its time.  It had been sold for some years in stores, but the problem was that no one would buy it because they had no clue what it did.  Through network marketing (word of mouth), the product could get a proper explanation.

Was I sold on his product or his company?  NO!

Why do you think that is?

For me, there was no emotional conviction.  There was a lot of information about the product, but I wanted to know how it was going to make me money.  I have been in network marketing for some time, so I know the process works.  Now what I wanted to know was how to present the product in the light of the needs of the person.  To make money, a product or service must be sold.  If I help enough people get what they want, then I will get what I want.  If I can help another person with their health and finances, then I should be able to get the finances for my health.

Here is the rub!

People don’t care about health!  People care about money.  If they can make more money, then they can afford to care about their health.  It takes money to eat better.  It takes money to join a gym to exercise. It takes time and money to entertain and feed the family.

Making money and having more time is the impetus for most network marketers.  Oh, they might say that it was the product, or the compensation plan, or the hype that got them involved, but the bottom line is that people want more time and more money.

However, people are not sales people.  How do you make money?  You either have to sell a product or a service or sell your time to another person who is going to use you to fulfill their dream.

What if you don’t like to sell or don’t want to talk to people?  I know a ton of network marketers who love to talk, to stand up on stage and pontificate with lots of braggadocio! They develop the hype that anyone can do this and if they can do it, then anyone can do it.

What a lot of hogwash!  NOT everyone can do it.

Sometimes we need help.  Sometimes we don’t like to talk to people.  Sometimes we don’t have the desire to talk to everyone within 3 feet.  Sometimes we don’t want to talk to anyone.

Sales people can’t afford to do that.  This is their livelihood and if they can’t talk they don’t make sales.  However, only 5% of the population are in the category.  What about the other 95%?

How can we build our network marketing company if we don’t want to sell or talk to people.

What if there was a way we could work with someone who will do the talking for us?

I found a company called GPN.  They do the selling for me.   The do the talking for me. They find the people who are interested in my business and give me a call to introduce me to the prospect.  Now, I only talk to those who are interested in my business.  In addition, they will coach me on how to talk to people successfully.
