Why Not Join Me and Start Your Home Business Today?

I am so excited!! I loved my home based business! It’s so easy.

All I have to do is show people how to turn an everyday household expense into an income. It’s unlike any other business I’ve done. I don’t have to ask people to spend ANY new money out of their budget. I simply show them how to shop at a different store for the same products they are buying now and my company pays me for showing them the new store. That’s it. It’s so simple.

In the past I’ve built businesses talking people into buying overpriced miracle juice and magic supplements. No more. The products at the new store I help people shop at are competitively priced.

How can we do that? How can we sell competitively priced products that people are already using on a daily basis? My business partner is the manufacturer of the products.

In a traditional MLM type structure, the products are manufactured by a manufacturer. They are then sold to the company. The company pays reps to sell them to the end consumer. This one extra step adds to the cost of the product to the end consumer.

In a traditional business, the products are manufactured by a manufacturer, then sold through reps to a store, then the store advertises to get the word out and then the products are sold to the end consumer.

Let’s take a look:

Traditional Business = Manufacturer => Wholesaler => Store => Advertising => End Consumer

Traditional MLM = Manufacturer => Company => End Consumer (Commission goes to MLM Rep)

My business = Manufacturer => End Consumer (Commission goes to Direct Marketing Rep)

So…the cost of products in my company can be competitive with major brands. This is very important. One of the major tests that is looked at when determining if a business is reputable is to ask this question:

Would you buy your products for the price you pay for them even if there were no business opportunity attached?

If the answer is no, then you are not in a good business model. Many people in traditional MLMs are forced to buy a lot of products to qualify to earn commission. Many people in traditional MLMs are forced to buy a bunch of product up front and then hope and pray they can sell it to someone and make money. That’s so sad. No matter what, don’t get roped into one of these types of businesses. You will be struggling forever and gaining very little ground.

Look for a business with a low cost to enter. Many charge hundreds or even thousands to join. Look for a business where you are not forced to load your garage with product just to qualify for bonuses. Many of them make you buy hundreds of dollars of stuff you would never buy otherwise EVERY month.

I love that I simply purchase better quality products that I would have bought elsewhere anyway AND I save money doing it. Then I make money showing others how to do the same thing. That is (for me) the PERFECT business. No spending money on stuff I don’t really need or want. No buying tons of stuff only to hope that I can sell it.

How to Turn an Everyday Expense into an Income

I’ve found a great way to make money from home. In the past, I have tried selling all kinds of things from nutritional supplements to lingerie. Loved the lingerie home parties, but people can only buy so much of the stuff and then they are done. Nutritional supplements are great but they are one of the first things to go when people start cutting back on their budget.

Before I go any further, let me tell you…I LOVE residual income and leveraging the efforts of others. I love the idea of getting paid from not only my efforts, but the efforts of others. I had someone ask me once…”Would you rather get paid for only 100% of the effort you put into something or 10% of the efforts of a few hundred people?” Well…it makes sense that 10% of the efforts of a few hundred people will pay more than 100% of the effort I put in. And my love of network marketing was born. (If you are unsure what I’m talking about, view the brochure “Are You Walking Past a Fortune?” here. This was written by my good friend, Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter.)

Many network marketing/direct sales companies have great products. I, however, was looking for a company with products that people buy anyway. This way, all I have to do is show them how to shop at a different store and help them show others. The company I found has everything you would find at a department/drug store. Toothpaste, shampoo, first aid supplies, household cleaners, candles, and a wide range of everything.

Here’s how it works…between everyone you talk to and everyone they talk to and everyone they talk to, eventually have 8 to 10 regular users of the product and 1 out of those who wants to build their own business. Then you will be making around $500 extra per month.

What could you do with an extra $500/mo?

I learned early on that it was best to leverage the time and effort of others as well as my own time and effort. Once I build my business big enough, I will be able to sit back and relax and collect a check for the rest of my life. Build it once, build it big and retire.

Do you think you could ever work for 10 years and retire with an income for life from your job? I doubt that would ever happen. Join me in business. You will be in business for yourself but not by yourself.
