What Does Empower Network Sell?

OK…here goes…I’m going to break this down for you. Many people seem to think that Empower Network is a scam because there is no physical product that they can touch, eat, put on their body, etc… Before I get into exactly what the products are, I’d like to talk to you a bit about other online products that you can’t touch. Here is just a brief list:

Kindle books
Audible audio books
Online education from Universities
Website hosting
Coach Roxanne’s online education
Any downloadable audio or ebook

In the past, socializing and network marketing were done face to face. You see someone, get in a conversation with them and introduce them to your products or business. Today, a lot of that interaction is done online.

Many traditional businesses are going out of business. Think of Borders books. They are done. No more. Very few people buy physical books anymore. They buy books they can download to their Kindles, Nooks, iPads, even their phones. Physical book stores are going out of business in record numbers.

Many jobs that existed just a few short years ago don’t exist anymore. Physical newspapers are going out of business because people now get their news and information much quicker online.

The online world is here and it’s here to stay. There is no denying that.

YOU have a choice….

Learn to roll WITH the changes or be left behind.

That is where Empower Network comes in. Two brilliant, kinda quirky guys decided to put together information products to help people who want to embrace the future. They have come up with training that will help marketers get the word out about their products or services in this new online world.

You do not have to market Empower’s products.  You can use the training and systems to market YOUR products, business opportunity or services. 

It’s way more than just a blogging system.

Prior to joining, I checked out EN and thought it was mainly a blogging system. However, I’m finding out that it’s OH SO MUCH MORE. The training that they offer is amazing. Even someone like me (I’ve been doing and teaching this stuff for years) can learn a lot from their training.

Contrary to what you see some reps doing, they teach you to NOT go out there and scream in everyone’s faces and yell about how great your business is. They teach you effective ways to get in front of people without being a slimy salesperson. Without pressuring anyone. They teach you how to have people coming to you instead of chasing after them.

Unfortunately… some just have a hard time losing their typical network marketer or slimy salesperson attitude. You know them. They are the ones that give every company out there a bad name. They are everywhere.

If you are someone who wants to learn how to market online, the Empower Network products are for you.  If you want to continue doing what you’ve always done, do me a favor and don’t join Empower Network. You won’t succeed and you will blame it on me or them. However, if you want to learn the right way to market your business online, go sign up. Go through the training.

Worst case… you sign up, do nothing and don’t continue.

Best case… you sign up, learn how to properly market your business online and make money.

If you were to buy every product Empower Network has, you would spend $ 5,100. Some MLM companies are charging that just to get in these days. I don’t suggest you jump in with every product right away. You will get overwhelmed and you will quit. Start out with the $25/mo. blogging system. Or add in the $100/mo. Inner Circle trainings. These are only products that are recurring monthly products. All others are a one time investment.  Make those investments as you go so you can learn in a step by step process.  There is no inventory loading here because you can’t buy more than one of each product.  If you want to be an affiliate and get paid when others buy EN’s products (like I do) there is an additional monthly investment for the affiliate side of it.

What are you waiting for?  It’s here for you on a silver platter.  Click here and join (ONLY if you are willing to learn and coachable).  😉  I’ll see you inside.

Really? The Economy Really Sucks, Huh?

Two words – NAKED THERAPY – Yup…that’s what I said.

There are so many people without jobs and claiming they “just can’t make money in today’s economy”.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again.  It’s all about finding something people will pay for.

I turned on the Jeff Probst Show this morning and he had a “Naked Therapist” on the show.  Naked therapy?  I was appalled but had to see what this was all about because this woman is saying her business is BOOMING.

She is claiming that she helps men through their “issues” by getting naked on a webcam when she talks to them.  However, she let the show tape the beginning of one of her sessions.      When the “session” started, the guy had real issues he wanted to talk about.  She took off her clothes and all of a sudden he says he has no issues.  He is all of a sudden a “Happy Camper”.  And she honestly thinks she is helping him.

I’m not here to address the morality of this “therapist”.  I am here to tell you that if you think outside the box and roll with today’s trends, you CAN make money.

People do not pay for things they NEED, they pay for things they WANT. 

There is not one of us who NEEDS a huge TV that takes up half of a wall.  That is something that sells.

There is not one of us who NEEDS the latest gaming equipment.  That is something that sells.

What does this mean for your business?  STOP thinking of marketing to people who you think NEED your product or service and market to people who WANT your product or service.

Was 2012 Your Best Year Yet?

WOW…what a year this has been.  It seems every year in my life just gets better and better.  I am excited to be starting a new year on Tuesday.  Are you?

I hear people complaining about the economy all the time.  What they don’t realize is that the economy is not what’s bad.  It’s the nature of the jobs today.  We are moving more toward an electronic age.  Everything is online.  There are more home based millionaires today than there were total millionaires about ten years ago. But…how can that be with such a horrible economy?  It’s all a lie!!

The people willing to put out the time, effort and money to learn how to work WITH this changing world.  More people are shopping online than ever before.  More people are working online than ever before.

Where are you at the end of 2012?  Was it a better or worse year than 2011?  You can’t continue to do what you’ve always done and claim that life and the economy are getting worse.  The economy is great for people who are willing to work WITH the changes that come along instead of doing the same things that no longer work.

Make 2013 your best year ever.  Get started right with my “name your own price” New Year Group Coaching special.

Happy New Year!!  Here’s to making 2013 your greatest year!!

Do You Think Your Job is Secure?

It is with much sadness I write this post to you today, Christmas, 2011.

I am the type of person who thinks she can “save the world”.  I always try my best to help others.  Today I ran into an old friend.  For the past few years, I’ve been talking with this friend about starting her own home business.  She’s my facebook friend and she sees my posts on there talking about creating an income from home.  For this post I will call her Nancy.  Nancy had a decent job.  She was making enough money to add to her husband’s income and help make a pretty good life for their family.

Every time I even mentioned helping her create an additional income from home, Nancy reminded me that she didn’t need a “Plan B” because she had a good job and her husband had worked for the same company since he graduated high school.

It’s been about 6 months since I talked with Nancy.  She told me today that things are really bad for her this year.  Her husband lost his job.  The company just went out of business.  No notice to employees or anything.  For a while they stayed afloat with their savings, his unemployment and her income.  Then, about a month or so later, Nancy’s employer fired her.  Because NY is an “at will” employment state, an employer can fire you at any time for any reason or for no reason.  When her unemployment hearing came up, the employer came up with all kinds of BS that were the supposed reasons behind her firing, although she had heard from other employees that the company just wanted to get rid of the higher paid employees to cut costs.    Needless to say, she did not get unemployment.

So…here Nancy and her husband are today with 2 kids and very little income.  His unemployment barely pays the rent and keeps food on the table and the electric on.   They have both been looking for jobs, but jobs are few and far between.  At this point, coming up with even $60 to start her own home business is out of the question.  They are looking for a smaller place because even though they get her husband’s unemployment, they make too much to qualify for any assistance from the state.  Therefore, they have to move to a smaller place so they can keep food on the table.

My mother always said “Hindsight’s 20/20”.  If Nancy had started her own business a year ago when she and her husband still had jobs, they would NOT be in this situation today.  At this point, there isn’t much I can do to help her.  She has to be willing to invest something into owning her own business.  I could have gotten her started for less than $100 when they had “good jobs” and “good income”.  But…unfortunately, Nancy didn’t think she needed to plan for “just in case”.

So…what is your plan?  What if your “good job” disappears?  What will you do?  Do you have anything in place to help out?  If you need a Plan B, contact me and I will be happy to help.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What will you do with it?

Incompetent Customer Service from the US Postal Service

Postal carriers are complaining that the government wants to close physical locations. They will be out of jobs. Let me tell you…when your job is on the line, you SHOULD provide excellent customer service so people will WANT to do business with you.

I ship packages out on an almost daily basis. When I lived in KY, I never had a problem with a carrier coming to the house and picking up the packages. I would notify them online that there is a pickup for the next day and VOILA! they would show up and pick up the packages.

Since I’ve been in NY, I’ve had pickups through 2 different post offices. I have had problems with both of them. The Sterling NY post office is SEVERELY lacking in it’s customer service. The postal carrier on my route was rude, obnoxious and missed pickups all the time.   Now, in Cato, I have a carrier who is CLUELESS when it comes to pickups.  I put notes on the order when I put it in and he doesn’t read them.  This past weekend, I put in a pickup order for Saturday and it said to pick up the packages “at the front door” just like always.  His reasoning to his boss as to why he did not pick up the packages was “I didn’t see them on the porch”.  HELLO????  Come to the front door and VOILA! you would have seen them sitting next to the door ready to go.

Customer service everywhere needs to step it up!!
