Why Building a Brand for Yourself is Crucial to Success

Click for my Personal FB

As you read the word ‘brand‘ what comes to mind?

Coca-Cola, Apple, or maybe Amazon?

There are so many big brands out there nowadays it is hard to get noticed as a new business owner.

As an author and online marketer, I have it much easier… because I am just building my brand: The Joe Stewart brand.

Hmm that has a ring to it… maybe I’ll pick up the guitar again and start the Joe Stewart Band? Lol.

Anyways, I am not out there trying to compete with Apple or other massive companies… I compete with non-fiction authors in my niche, and other online marketers who usually make themselves look like dingbats anyway with bogus claims, and make my job really, REALLY easy.

So how did I get my brand started when I was flat broke? I started this blog in 2012 for like $18, and started writing company reviews and marketing training. Success from this blog didn’t come fast, it took consistent posting for a 90 day+ period so if you think blogging will get you hundreds of leads a day fast think again… it takes a lot of time, energy and passion.

After publishing 100+ something blog posts I was like well now what do I do? I had also recorded and uploaded 50 or so videos on YouTube with links in the description to capture pages, my blog, as well as my phone number and email at the time. Again, success with these videos didn’t come overnight, it took months to start getting free traffic and free leads!

At this point I was at a stand still in a business.

My team was cranking out multiple 6 figures per year in our business and everything was good, but we just couldn’t seem to get to that next level. I was reading a blog post on branding by the founder of Empower Network David Wood, and on that post he talks about everything that I was doing at the time such as my official blog, YouTube videos, PPC, media buys and social media of course… but no matter how much content I put out or advertising dollars I spent, my income was at a stand still.

If you continue reading that post I linked to about branding by David Wood, you would know that his recommendation to take your brand to the next level was writing a book… a physical book, not an e-book or PLR garbage. He used the example of Timothy Ferriss, the author of the Four Hour Workweek and other best selling books. Think about it, the people in bookstores will never find your blog, click your ugly banner ad, or find you online. They may however, find your paperback book in Barnes and Noble and hunt you down to join your team… it’s happened for me so it can happen for you too if you take action.

So after taking a few months off from the industry, I read hundreds of books about networking, marketing, among other stuff related to our niche, I went to every seminar I could and paid the best consultants to teach me how they were making 6-7 figures per month hand over fist.

With all this new found knowledge in my head, I applied everything that I had learned. I found out which strategies worked for me personally in my business, and which ones did not. I also took into effect what was duplicating for my team, and what tactics only veteran marketers could do vs someone brand new.

joe stewart's new book
Buy My New Book!

After testing and tweaking everything for months, I had a little system in place that worked very well for me and my team. I finally sat down in 2012 and wrote my first book which tells my story and explains my whole digital real estate system called ‘Create Your Own Economy.’

This is when my brand went to a whole new level!

Radio shows started contacting me by email and phone, top network and online marketers, you name it… I was literally attracting my ideal business partners into my life each and every day.

(Check out my radio interview with Syndicated News)

I’ve hung out with the owner of Salt Life many times, been featured on quite a few radio shows and news websites as well as been invited to do book signings at bookstores and coffee shops across the USA. I don’t say all of this to brag because I still have a longgggg way to go, but I am just showing you what is possible when you take the time to build a solid brand.

Some people don’t realize that its as easy as going on and having some professional graphic design done for your Facebook and website. This is the start of building a good looking brand, without having to be a guru or expert in the industry… (yet.)

Just be sure to constantly be growing yourself. What I mean is read daily for 30 minutes or more, something positive like personal development etc. Listen to some audios by peak performance trainers inside your specific industry, so this way you have tons of knowledge and leadership to be able to offer your marketplace and your potential customers. If you can’t help your prospects get to where THEY want to go in life, they have no reason to buy anything from you… period.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about why building a brand for yourself is CRUCIAL to success.

Empower Network’s New Product High Ticket Academy

What’s in High Ticket Academy?

In video 2 of the new High Ticket Academy product, founder of Empower Network David Wood stated that he reached out to one of his mentors Cedrick Harris to learn how he sold high ticket (more expensive) products. This was somewhat a funny coincidence to me, because I literally just met Cedrick Harris like 12 hours ago and definitely picked up some golden nuggets while we were hanging out for a bit… so I can see why D Wood hit up Cedrick for advice about selling high ticket stuff.

cedrick harris
Hanging W/ Cedrick Harris

He said he was riding around in Cedrick’s car one day and while he was asking him for advice for selling high ticket stuff, Cedrick’s phone rang. After talking with this guy for a few minutes he simply said “alright man well here’s what I want you to do… go to this website, and start putting in your credit card info.” Apparently David Wood was shocked as he saw all of this happen.

Next thing you know Cedrick’s OTHER phone was ringing (because he had one cell # for a high ticket business and another cell for a business opportunity or something like that) so he put the other guy on hold so he could take this other call and close them as well lol… talk about killing two birds with one stone, eh?

But the one thing David Wood noticed about this whole thing playing out, was that Cedrick pulled out his closing journal, where he would write down notes about the words he was using or some of the objections he would get or whatever. So the one thing I got from the first few minutes of this video was to have a journal with me whenever I am selling products over the phone or Facebook chat.

Aaron Rashkin – The Master of High Ticket Sales!

aaron rashkin empower networkMoving on into the other part of High Ticket Academy, Aaron Rashkin covers the importance of simply preparing yourself to make high ticket sales. Although it takes the same amount of energy to sell a $25 product as a $5,000 product, you still have to be prepared mentally and emotionally in order to earn the trust of somebody so they will fork over that large amount of money. You literally have to condition your mind in a different way to shift over from selling cheap stuff to products for $1,000 and up.

As a high ticket closer, you have to find out what your prospects want but can’t have because of what they are currently doing, so you have a lot of questions to ask and a lot of investigating to do! So yes that means you have a lot of chatting on the phone to do… I know some of you guys hate picking up the phone because we all got spoiled with capture pages leading to sales videos and making sales on auto pilot.

“You must know more about your prospects then you know about your product! You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going!” – Aaron Rashkin

Another nugget I picked up from Aaron’s high ticket academy training was something that me and my cousin Craig used to do which is to simply be each others assistants. As you have leads coming in to your marketing system with their phone numbers, it is a good idea to have an ASSISTANT to call these leads and screen them. It puts you in a position of authority and leadership, and if you have a personal assistant who calls your leads for you and sets up an appointment for them to talk to YOU, they are much more likely to see you as the person who can get them to where they want to go… its more of a psychology thing then marketing or sales.

Imagine when you walk into a doctors office or a dentist, there is an assistant or somebody sitting at the front desk in an office, hair salon you name it! You don’t just walk in and get access to the big important doctor right away. The assistant screens you and makes sure that you actually have an appointment.

Well I can’t tell you guys EVERYTHING I learned in High Ticket Academy because that wouldn’t be fair to the people who paid hundreds of dollars for this information.

Feel free to contact me below if you need any further assistance in selling your high ticket products or you want to get in the high ticket world of affiliate marketing.

I will see you on the beaches of the world…

Brain Abundance Review: Can You Achieve Abundance In This New MLM?

What is Brain Abundance?

Are you online today looking for more information about one of the new MLM companies known as Brain Abundance?

Not 100% sold if you should join yet due to some of the scam claims across Google or YouTube? In this completely 3rd party Brain Abundance review I will go over the following:

-The owners of Brain Abundance and the company background.

-Their product line, ingredients and pricing.

-Compensation plan/fine print.

-What you would need to succeed in something like Brain Abundance.

So with that being said, let’s get started!

Brain Abundance – Owners and Background 

brain abundance reviews
CEO of Brain Abundance

Brain Abundance was launched by Eric J. Caprarese and Dr. Pejman Behrouzi.

On their official website it states that they use a “team of top scientists, nutritionists, and formulators” to create these products that provide great results. The company has been in pre launch for a few months, but they official launched for business in mid January of 2014.

Now if you head over to their CEO Eric Caprarese’s Facebook page, you will easily find that he was previously (or still is?) apart of Pure NRG fx the new Playboy energy drink everybody was talking about last year.

If you go to his official blog it says that Eric is a Network marketing top earner, motivational speaker and industry leader.

He has also started his own charity called the Caprarese Foundation. For every $1 that they receive they are able to feed 4 hungry children.

You can learn more about Eric’s charity at their official site

Brain Abundance Product – Brain Fuel Plus

Their flagship product is known as Brain Fuel Plus which is a capsule form supplement which claims to help you maintain healthy brain function.

I have seen quite a few friends on Facebook posting pictures and videos of the product bottle, and a lot of positive testimonials from people who stated that the Brain Abundance supplement helped with their depression, anxiety, memory and other mental functions.

On the official Brain Abundance website it says:

Three capsules of Brain Fuel PLUS each day can help:

  • SUPPORT A HEALTHY MEMORYbrain-fuel-plus

Brain Fuel PLUS helps you realize your brain’s full potential – work smarter, not harder.

Brain Abundance – Comp Plan

From their website, the Brain Abundance compensation plan is an accelerated binary and is “one of the most aggressive in the industry” we’ve all heard that one before, right? 😉 So on top of this accelerated binary thing, there are a few other ways to get paid in their payout structure.

1. Powerline Bonus – One of the most powerful parts of our Powerline driven system is your ability to earn income on the first three people below who have at least 50BV in personal volume, just by locking in your position. The Powerline Bonus is paid out one time and is paid out weekly.

2. Fast Start Commissions with Infinity Coded Overrides – For each new person you introduce to Brain Abundance, you will earn between $25 and $75 on their initial product order. PLUS, with 6 generations of Coded Overrides based on rank, you can earn up to $10.50 on the first order of everyone in your entire team. There is no limit as to how many people you can enroll or how much you can earn in Fast Start and Coded Overrides.

3. The industry’s FIRST and ONLY Accelerated Binary Compensation Plan, this very aggressive version of one of the most popular compensation plans in the industry combines a super high payout with the easiest qualifiers anywhere.

What makes the Accelerated Binary different?

  • Get Paid FASTER – The reason it’s called an Accelerated Binary is because traditional binaries pay out in a one-third, two-third fashion requiring you to have, for example, 3 people on your right leg and 6 on your left leg for a total of 9 people in your team before you get paid…which is difficult for many people. With our Accelerated Binary, you get paid much FASTER. As soon as you enroll just ONE person in each leg, you get paid!
  • BIGGER Commissions – While traditional binaries pay out a set amount per cycle to keep their actual payout in the 30% to 40% range, the Brain Abundance compensation plan GUARANTEES an incredible 75% of BV payout (almost DOUBLE the industry average) up to $20 per cycle!

When you lock in your position in Brain Abundance, you are given your own business center which will track all members in your team. Your business center has two teams: a Left Team and a Right Team. To qualify to earn monthly Accelerated Binary commissions, all you need to do is have a minimum of one personally enrolled active member with a minimum of 50BV in personal volume in each of your legs.

Once you do that, you are qualified to earn Accelerated Binary commissions for that month. As long as you maintain that qualification each month, you will earn a commission check for that “cycle.” Each time there is just 50 BV (1 order) on your left leg and 50 BV (1 order) on your right leg, regardless of who enrolled them, YOU get paid another cycle. Cycle’s pay out a very generous 75% of the total binary BV up to $20 per cycle. New members in your teams can be enrolled by you, or by any of your Team Members below you, or even by any team members ABOVE you in the Binary. All new members count equally toward the cycles and globally to unlimited depth…and with our state-of-the-art Powerline system, you may ALREADY have members signed up under you RIGHT NOW!

In the event that there is unused volume, (Example: You had 200 people in your left leg each with 50 BV in personal volume and 160 people in in your right each with 50 BV in person volume, you would be paid 160 cycles which will generate up to $3,200 (160 x $20 cycle) in commissions to you. That would leave 40 people in your left leg that you didn’t get paid on yet. ALL of that volume will carry over to be used next month.

4. Rank Achievement Bonus – Final way to get paid, simply climb the ranks in the Brain Abundance compensation plan and you will be rewarded with a one time bonus ranging from $1,000 to $100,000 dollars.

Brain Abundance Review – Can YOU Succeed?

So after reading my third party review, you should know much more about who is behind Brain Abundance, the ingredients and benefits behind their main product Brain Fuel PLUS, as well as everything I could find about the Brain Abundance comp plan. All that is left at this point is for you to decide if you feel this product is something YOU would personally consume and benefit from, and if you have the guts to tell all your friends, family and other people in your network about the product so you can earn an income.

Unfortunately this is 2014, and most people don’t like to be sold, and people don’t like to sell either! (Except me, I’m weird.)

brain abundance review

Now that you know most people hate sales, questions are probably starting to pop up in your mind like

“Can I sell this? If I recruit new people to use and market this product with me, will they be able to sell it as well?”

What if I told you that hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of people are going on Google and other search engines each and every day typing in stuff like “How to buy Brain Fuel PLUS” or “How to join Brain Abundance?”

Wouldn’t it be much easier for you to get your message and website in front of those targeted people, vs calling all your friends and family members? I’ve done both… and I’ll take the targeted people who are already looking for your products/business any day of the week.

If you feel this information would help YOU and YOUR team have massive success in Brain Abundance, I welcome you to contact me below so I can recommend some training and tools I personally use to build my home businesses.

I hope you have enjoyed this third party Brain Abundance review!

FaceBook Marketing Tips from Author/Affiliate Marketer Joe Stewart

Watch my video below to see how I make money by simply connecting with people on Facebook chat, and how I use Facebook statuses to peak people’s interest so they literally message me asking for the link to join my team or buy my products.

Always keep it real and be authentic on Facebook! People hate to be sold, but at the same token, people LOVE to buy! I know its hard at first because everybody thinks direct sales or affiliate marketing is all about sales or marketing, but in reality I have made 99% of my sales by simply getting to know someone and asking them questions about their family, job, what they do for fun and so on.

Once you get to know somebody without pitching them for your biz opp every 5 minutes, they somehow feel obligated to ask you what it is that you do, which now gives you the option to tell them a little bit about it and see if they are open minded to taking a look and seeing if they would be interested in doing business with you.

Enjoy folks!

If you got value from this post and video, feel free to share it with your team and Facebook friends!

MLM Functions & Affiliate Events: Waste Of $ Or Secrets Revealed? (Video Attached)

Is your upline pressuring you to go to your MLM function?

should i attend MLM events
Some Friends @ Last Event!

My first few years in MLM I was involved in the mac daddy of them all known as Amway lol… don’t you just love Amway?

My up line ‘mentor’ kept telling me the importance of buying my tickets to the big ‘function’ every 90 days but for whatever reason I never went. I always came up with excuses such as not having the money, or I had to work that weekend, but in reality I could have easily came up with the extra money and requested off work a few weeks in advance.

After quitting Amway and fumbling around in quite a few different MLM companies and affiliate offers, I finally made the decision to attend my primary MLM’s big event as well as my online affiliate companies big event.

It’s not really about the wisdom being dropped or the big ‘secret’ you expect to learn, but more so just brushing shoulders with the 6 & 7 figure income earners in your company. Sitting down for coffee or lunch with them, or even hitting the clubs and partying it up with these industry leaders is really where the golden nuggets and tips you are paying for are revealed.

The first event I went to was a big conference for a weight loss deal I was promoting. This company had just hit momentum so they packed like 15k people into the  Miami Heat Arena for their big event almost 2 years ago. I think the main thing I got out of this event was just seeing all the average, everyday people who were making a full time income in this industry. Other then that it was really just a big old hype fest lol… maybe you can relate.

“Free BMW’s for anybody who produces X amount of sales each month.”

“Free product if you sell our overpriced product to 3 of your friends each month.”

“We believe in you.”

“You can do it!”

“It’s YOUR time!”

Yeah it was the hypest weekend of my life… no wonder why that companies sales are down $90 million from last year 🙂

Moving on, me and my team got tired of the hypey free BMW’s and selling overpriced crap to 3 friends every month made it hard for me to sleep at night. So we moved on to some online business that was a lot more affordable to start and operate each month. This made it a very ‘sticky’ business model, meaning once people joined they had a hard time cancelling their monthly product subscription. When it was announced that this internet based company that went from $0 to $80 million in sales in less than 2 years was holding their quarterly event in Miami just a few hours south of me, you can bet your ass that I bought tickets for not only myself, but the 3 leaders on my team in my neighborhood.

Now this event was a lot more in depth then Hype Fest 2012… that was my name for it at least. Sure there was some hype and rah rah chants, but some people need that excitement or chill down their spine… the rest of us however were looking for an action plan, proven marketing and sales tactics, and any advice that would help us get to the next level.

What this event did differently then the little MLM party was on day 2 of the event, they split up all their leaders into different lobbies of the hotel we were at and let them teach for an hour, making it a more intimate setting they called them workshops. This gave people who attended the event the choice between their favorite leaders and who they personally wanted to learn from. Since a lot of these training workshops were happening at the same time as one another, we had to split up and each attend different workshops and share the notes that we took later on.

So should you attend your MLM company events?

At the end of the day only YOU can answer that question.

What I will say is this: if you have the money in your checking, you can get out of work or find a babysitter, then yes you should definitely attend the event! If you are still on the fence about your company or whether or not you can succeed there, attending their event will definitely either make you a firm believer in your products and company, or it might be the one last thing that puts the nail in the coffin where you decide to leave that specific company.

Either way you look at it, the highest paid network marketers all attend their events, and they are the biggest promoters of their company events. Just keep that in mind if you want to become a millionaire in MLM or affiliate marketing.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about whether or not you should go to your MLM company functions and events.

I’ll see ya at the bank!

Amway Reports Global Sales of $11.8 billion for 2013

amway 2013 record sales
Do Amway, Don’t Be THAT Guy!

Amway today reported global sales of USD $11.8 billion for 2013, a record for the organization.  The total surpasses 2012 sales of $11.3 billion and continues a period of tremendous growth, highlighted by annual sales increases in seven consecutive years. The company’s annual sales figure includes revenue from direct selling operations and other business holdings.

“Our distributors are the driving force behind this remarkable achievement, supported by the work of our 21,000 employees worldwide,” said Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel and Amway President Doug DeVos in a joint statement. “Distributors in more than 100 countries and territories are now achieving their potential through their Amway businesses, creating another record year for the company.”

Strong sales across categories, led by nutrition
Nutrition products continued to be the sales leader for Amway. Flagship products include NUTRILITE™ Protein Powder and NUTRILITE™ DOUBLE/TRIPLE X supplements. The healthy aging category is driving new growth, including sales of NUTRILITE™ Memory Builder dietary supplements. Product launches included TRUVIVITY by NUTRILITE™, a patented moisture enhancing system that leverages the company’s scientific expertise in nutrition and beauty, and a new line of weight management products, BODYKEY by NUTRILITE™.

The beauty products category provided strong results as well, strengthened by the continued global rollout of its ARTISTRY YOUTH XTEND™ skincare collection and the launch of the ARTISTRY IDEAL RADIANCE™ brightening line.

In the home products category, sales of eSpring™ Water Purifiers were impressive, bolstered by the momentum of the product’s introduction inChina in late 2012 and strong sales in Asian markets.  eSpring™ is now the world’s number-one selling brand of home water treatment systems, based on a Verify Markets study of 2012 global sales.

Expansion continues

Amway also continued its support of its distributors through a physical presence strategy that included opening a business center in Berlin, Germany in 2013.  Amway has experienced success with integrating physical locations into its business model in recent years and, with the opening of a location at Citi Field in New York City, now has physical locations in all four company regions.  The locations serve as another tool for distributors to use in building their businesses and servicing their customers.

Supporting entrepreneurship
In its continued support of entrepreneurship, Amway published its Global Entrepreneurship Report in November 2013.  The report studied people’s attitudes toward self-employment, revealing important information about global views and the desire by many for a business opportunity of their own.  Amway has been collecting and analyzing data in relation to entrepreneurship on a regular basis since 2008. In 2013, the survey featured 24 countries, including the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Japan,Australia and several European countries.

Giving nature
The company culminated a year’s worth of activities dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the AMWAY ONE BY ONE™ Campaign for Children on Nov. 20, 2013.  The single day of service, called Amway Universal Children’s Day, mobilized employees and distributors from across the globe to serve children’s causes. Approximately 15,000 people in 57 countries participated in 300 projects that day, impacting 100,000 children globally.

From Pirate Ships to the Adam’s Family, All the Way to Carmen Electra’s Mansion

I didn’t want to name this blog post something boring like “Miami Weekend Business Trip Recap” or “OMG I wanna go back to Miami” so I decided on the above. 🙂

If you joined us in Miami this weekend, you might understand why I chose that for a title. If you weren’t with us however, continue reading and I will do my best to break it down for you below.

Eight Figure Fellas in MIA
Eight Figure Fellas in MIA

Let’s go back a few months. The day I heard David Wood announce that the next Empower Network event was in Miami, Florida (2 hours South from my house) I was hanging out with two of my business partners, Craig Ronaldson “The MLM Jedi” and Andrew Tiffany, co-founder of The MLM Times.

At the same exact time, the three of us said “we’re going” and at that moment we made the decision to go. We didn’t look in our calendars to see if we were available… we didn’t log in to mobile banking to check and make sure we had enough cash to pay for the tickets, travel, hotel, rental car etc… we simply made the decision that we were GOING.


Sometimes it doesn’t really matter if you have enough money or have other things going on. Once a decision is made and you are serious about it, your subconscious mind will almost always figure it out for you.  Andrew, Craig and myself had plenty of obstacles leading up to this event, maybe you can relate. For one, our local mastermind team was growing with the addition of our newest leader Mr. Robert Fuller the CEO of the new Eight Figure Fellas brand. So now we had to make some changes to our travel plans, hotel, vehicle situation and so on.

Fast forward to the day before the event. All of our bags were packed, tickets in hand, and a desire to learn something new after leaving the event. I didn’t care if it was only one golden nugget I took away or ten, I had a burning desire to up my game and learn new skills that would take my team and I to the next level in our business. We loaded up the 2014 Ford Expedition we rented for the weekend and headed south on I-95.

The first day we arrived was simply registering for the event. So we went to the auditorium where the event was held, gave them our tickets and they gave us our lanyards so we had access to the event for 3 days. Now we had a full day in MIA to kill time because the event didn’t start until 7 pm on Friday night. Walking down Biscayne, we ventured towards the water and marinas to find this massive pirate ship. A guy with long black hair approaches my team and I, and tells us all about this pirate ship and how it takes you all through Star Island, Palm Island and some other island I forgot the name of…

Only $26 for an hour and a half on a pirate ship? How could we turn it down?

Next thing you know are wallets are out and we are boarding this huge ass pirate ship. Some people were sitting on the bottom, there were 2 top levels, one in the front and one in the back where the captain was steering. They had a tour guide with a microphone pointing out some of the landmarks in Miami, and different celebrities mansions on the water. They even took the boat past the houses where they filmed Scarface and the Adam’s Family!

Carmen Electra's yacht
My Girl Carmen’s Little Boat

If you were wondering, Denzel Washington has a PAD let me tell you…

…even cruising past Carmen Electra’s mansion was a site to see.

She has a HUGE yacht on the dock behind her house with “Electra” on the back just so you know its her I guess lol.

I will write another post about our weekend in Miami sometime soon since I can’t fit everything into one article.

But I really wish you were there WITH US!

Seriously had too much fun and can’t wait to go back… I freaking love Miami. The food, the site seeing just the whole city is straight gangster… like me.

Guest Post: Why a Vemma Bronze Leader Quit After 1 Year! Shocking News…

Click here to join my team for free as of January 21st, 2014. Earn 100% commission residual income.

For help with Vemma: Check out my 7 free videos bootcamp on Attraction Marketing. 

Whats going on guys? Korey Niese, a former bronze leader with Vemma sits down to tell you why he quit Vemma after 1 year to pursue better opportunities in his opinion. I’m so thankful and grateful for Vemma because it expanded my awareness and taught me so much more about life in general and how to live better. It taught me how to create residual income and overall exposed me to incredibly healthy products that I’m thankful for and will continue to buy and support Vemma as a network marketing company. Vemma is a great company and I will always have a place in my heart for Vemma.

I’m gonna tell you my story and how I got started. I got invited out to a Vemma home event to hear about a way to make a couple grand a month working part-time. At first I was skeptical and thought it sounded too good to be true. However I went to the meeting and realized how legit this opportunity was and joined the next day on a Vemma Gold builder pack. I was all in from the very beginning and did loads of home events, 3 way calls, and everything my upline was telling me to do. Then I started to struggle and soon found online attraction marketing. And over the year while being involved with Vemma, I realized how much better some opportunities were that were out there for me. I made twice as much money with the internet in 1 DAY as compared with Vemma while being in it for an entire year.

You make small commissions with Vemma and all mlm companies and I personally believe they don’t compensate you what your really worth. I soon found ways to earn 50 to 100% commissions instead of tiny 3% commissions with an MLM opportunity. I’m not saying what I’m doing is better, I’m just saying it’s better for me personally. It allows me the freedom to truly work from home and leverage my time.
With Vemma, they preach the traditional mlm systems which is buy your products, talk to your friends and family, make a list, and do it over and over again.

To me that’s not very time efficient or effective for the avergae person who joins an mlm opportunity. This type of system they preach is a one size fits all and I don’t think that is good. What works for somebody may or may not work for everybody else. Success rate in mlm and Vemma is a measly 3%. 97% of their organization never break even or end up failing and quitting. They go bac to their job or old way of life.

Today I’m sharing how you can still earn residual income and create a lifestyle of freedom while working from home and leveraging the internet. Vemma is a great opportunity at the end of the day, but I’ve just found better ones that make more sense to me personally and what I believe for the vast majority of people who join this wonderful industry of direct response marketing.

Mommy’s Club Review: What is Mommy’s Club & Can Dad Join Too? Now Known as Healthy Home Company

What is Mommy’s Club Anyway? 

Mommy's Club Review
Mommy’s Club Review

Mommy’s Club is a wholesale shopping club that is offering health and wellness, household and personal care products made with all natural, all organic, and most importantly toxic free ingredients.

They market these high quality products through the word of mouth or direct sales form of advertising and moving products. This means there is a business opportunity for those mom’s and dad’s out there who personally use the Mommy’s Club product line and buy it for their kids. If you’re passionate about it and plan on telling all your friends, family and neighbors about the products being offered, why not get compensated for it right?

Mommy’s Club is also a trusted resource for information on toxic-free living, so members also receive free access to information about all natural, all organic and toxic free living so that parents can make the home a happier, healthier, safer place to raise their kids or grandchildren.

Mommy’s Club Medical Advisors

From the official Mommy’s Club website, they currently have 3 medical advisors working for the company:

“Dr. Jon Meliones has been working with the Mommy’s Club team for over 18 months. He is the head of Duke University’s Pediatric Critical Care Unit ranked among the top programs in the world. He is a practicing surgeon and has been performing heart surgery on unborn, new born and young children for over 30 years.”

“Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy is Mommy’s Club Toxic Free Ambassador. Dr. Connealy attended the University of Texas School of Public Health, and then attended the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School. She completed her post-graduate training at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.”

“Last but not least they have Dr. Sameh K. Toma who is Mommy’s Club Medical Advisor. Dr. Toma graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor Degree in Science in Electrical Engineering. He then graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill School of Medicine and completed his residency there as well.”

Mommy’s Club Toxic Free Product Line

Obviously like I stated above all of the products being offered by the Mommy’s Club are all natural, all organic, and toxic free. First I will give you some brief talking points about their health and wellness line, then a little bit about their personal care products. My favorite selling point about the Mommy’s Club product offering is that all of their products are made here at home in the USA, they are not only Toxic Free but BPA free as well.Mommy's Club Prenatal Plus

Prenatal Plus: Vitamin Supplement for women of all ages, not only expecting mothers, who need extra iron and unique ingredients in their diets. Although it has been designed to nourish mother and baby before, during and after pregnancy many others can benefit too. It is made from organic & vegetarian ingredients and is whole food based.Total Body Health: A powerful 100 % vegetarian natural source of daily nourishment that contains a full spectrum of over 150 vitamins, minerals, super foods and enzymes. The liquid formula is more bio-available and therefore delivers more nutrients to the body than traditional pill form supplements. The product also contains a prebiotic fiber complex with special enzymes to maintain good digestive health, unique ingredient blends for liver and kidney functions, vision and youth, circulatory health, amino acids and concentrated fruits and vegetables. They also have a bottle of Total Body Health available for Children.

Advance Omega 3/6/9 Natural Lemon: Advanced Omega 3/6/9 molecularly distilled pure fish oil is loaded with 3,500 mg of Omega-3 rich fish oil, 200 mg of Omega 6’s, and 830 mg of Omega 9’s, all of which are proven to be the most beneficial to your family’s health. Our liquid formula has a unique lemon-cream taste that children and adults will enjoy by itself or when added to every day healthy foods.

Cherry Chewable Vitamin for Kids w/Probiotics: A daily probiotic complex for an all-in-one dietary supplement for all ages with a natural cherry flavor with citrus bio flavonoids.

Mommy's Club Perfect Touch SanitizerAs far as the personal care/skincare side of their products go, they offer a Perfect Touch Hand Sanitzer.

It is 100% toxic free with a unique oxygen-rich solution that is unlike any alcohol based or aerosol sanitizer.

It does not dry out your skin and it is safe to use on any surface. Unique ingredients help make it effective against bacteria and viruses. Spray directly on hands, children’s clothing, restaurant tables, home counter tops, work areas, and changing tables.

They also offer Baby lotion, shampoo,  foaming wash, as well as a daily foaming wash for adults. To finish off the personal care/skincare side of their product line they have an all Organic Rash and Remedy Skin Relief bottle. It’s made with organic, EcoCert and toxic free ingredients. You can replace cut and rash creams throughout the home and in emergency kits with our safer alternative. A unique blend of ingredients that helps with swelling and itching due to common skin problems, diaper rash and burns and insect bites among other skin irritations.

Who is behind Mommy’s Club?

The CEO and Co-Founder of the company Mommy’s Club is none other then Mr. Billy Glynn.

Billy Glynn Ben Platt Mommy's Club

He is an author, venture capitalist, has been featured on many radio shows and is also the Co-Founder of Brig Hart’s new USA Association which is a premier members benefits organization, with a cause. The other co-founder is Ben Platt. He is also the CFO of the USA Association so it looks like the same corporate staff for both companies.

Both companies also have their HQ located in St. Augustine, Florida.

I am not sure if Brig Hart is involved in the corporate or distributor side of things because he obviously sold his MonaVie distributorship in mid 2013, but time will tell.

Some of the top earners who have partnered up with Mommy’s Club thus far are former MonaVie Black Diamonds my friends Mick & Vick Karshner as well as Mike and Sahi Hernandez. Both teams are power couples and obviously built massive organizations over at MonaVie to get to the top of the compensation plan at the Black Diamond Rank which equates to over $1 million per year in annual commissions.

With that being said I see big things for Mommy’s Club in 2014. The name is catchy, and women not only make over 80% of the buying decisions in their household, but over 80% of the women who made over $100,000 last year did it through the direct selling model… go figure Lol women LOVE to talk, shop, and have fun. This makes Mommy’s Club a great choice for mom’s and dad’s to make their home a healthier and safer place to raise their children.

I hope you have enjoyed this third party Mommy’s Club Review!

Wake Up Now: From Scam to Iconic MLM Company?

wake up now reviewDid that title get your attention? Good.

Now before we get into it, I just want you to know that I am not a Wake Up Now salesman/distributor whatever you like to call them.

This is a completely third party article from somebody who has a lot of friends in Wake Up Now, and has watched this whole thing play out the past few months.

Today I wanted to write an updated article about one of the new MLM companies out there that is gaining a lot of popularity known as Wake Up Now. Just a few short months ago, many network marketers and industry ‘news reporters’ started asking the question:

Is Wake Up Now A Scam?

Their main argument was something along the lines of “Wake Up Now is simply Taxbot, 3 magazine subscriptions, Language & finance software, a discount shopping mall and other products all bundled together to charge you the $99 cost to become a Wake Up Now Platinum member.”

In the beginning I was very skeptical about this company only because I had never seen a bunch of products jam packed together for one price. Is it even a legit company by simply marketing third party companies products?

So that was the buzz. People said Wake Up Now wouldn’t last, they said the FTC and SEC was ‘investigating’ Wake Up Now and that they wouldn’t make it into 2014… yet they are still here and growing more now then they were previously.

Wake Up Now Launches ‘Awaken’ Energy Drink and Ganoderma Coffee 

Since all these “Wake Up Now scam” claims have popped up all over the internet from some of the anti MLM sites like Ethan Vanderbuilt’s blog, Glancing Web and a few others, they have since launched a whole line of tangible products.

Awaken product lineI am assuming that their founders realized “Well everybody thinks we’re a scam because all these products are third party/digital etc. but if we invest in manufacturing tangible products people can hold in their hand like energy drinks, coffee and skin care, then all the skeptics should shut up!”

With that, in late 2013 Wake Up Now released its first line of energy drinks and coffee under the “Awaken” brand.

The first energy drink in the Awaken product line is similar to Crystal Light packets that you simply mix with a regular size bottle of water. These come in Citrus Blast and Tropical flavoring. The price is $19 + S&H for 30 of the energy drink packets. They also launched their own brand of instant coffee under the Awaken product line.

From all of the research I did it looks like they are calling it “Awaken Healthy Coffee” with Arabica Black branded on the front of the box. Now me personally, I’m a big fan of instant coffees, it’s just my thing… I can’t drink a whole pot of coffee so I usually make a cup of instant coffee or use my Keurig etc. What I found fascinating was the fact that they infused Ganoderma mushroom into each packet of their healthy coffee.

Ganoderma Coffee Wars: Fact of Fiction? 

There has been what I like to call “Ganoderma Coffee Wars” going on inside the MLM industry for quite a few years now ever since Organo Gold came onto the scene a few years back. Every few months I hear about a new company launching who is marketing you guessed it! Instant coffee sachets infused with the ganoderma mushroom.

Just look back over the past few years at all the new companies who came out with SOME form of coffee with ganoderma:

Organo Gold




Now Wake Up Now has joined the Ganoderma coffee market.

I have previously supported my friends who are distributors for Organo Gold coffee, another MLM company like Wake Up Now who primarily focuses on marketing their coffee and other consumable products.

Mainly because like I said I drink instant coffee anyway, I have used these supplements/coffees with ganoderma in the past and noticed a few positive health benefits. What got me to try Wake Up Now’s instant coffee was simply the price no matter which way you cut it.

As a retail customer in Wake Up Now, it is only $24 for 30 cups of coffee (just shy of $1 per cup, pretty average) which is reasonable because a lot of the companies listed above although are the same price/cheaper, but the box of coffee only comes with 20 sachets versus the 30 offered by Wake Up Now. The pricing for WUN’s ganoderma coffee is only $16 for WUN distributors (about .53 cents per cup).

Now unless you like the Wal-Mart great value brand of coffee (tastes like popcorn) which I am sure is less than .53 cents per cup, WUN is very competitive when it comes to instant coffee like Keurig or even fast food places like McDonalds, Starbucks and so on.

It seems as though Wake Up Now is here for the long haul with the launch of all these new products. They heard their critics, got down to the root of the problem and took action. I have also seen posts of top WUN leaders with their corporate/compliance staff saying that they have “cleaned up their marketing practices” because a lot of WUN reps were facing heat for bashing other MLM companies like Vemma or World Ventures. This is good because it obviously ticked off a lot of Vemma and WV leaders.

I don’t think it helps that there are hundreds of videos on YouTube with titles like “Why I left Vemma for WakeUpNow” lol

Anyways I hope you enjoyed this article!

What are your thoughts?

Is Wake Up Now STILL a scam in your opinion, or did adding tangible products and cleaning up their unethical marketing practices give them a shot at becoming an iconic company?

Comment below, and be sure to share this with anybody you know who is thinking about joining Wake Up Now or already a member.

ViSalus & Business For Love Hate Relationship?

So if you follow most of the top income earners/corporate staff for some of the bigger direct sales companies you probably noticed one of the biggest social media meltdowns of an MLM company for the year 2013. The sad part is, this company and SOME (not all) of their top earners/corporate people is always caught up in some sort of drama…

I posted this as my Facebook status the other day and feel it sums up the whole situation:

“Keeping Up With the ViSalian’s should be TVs next big drama hit… anyone agree? 

If I offend you, unfriend me!”

This caused a few laughs and pissed some people off but hey… one thing you will find about me is that I am always blunt and to the point.

Here is what caused ViSalus’s #9134676461564631297 Social Media Meltdown of 2013:

ryan blair business for home
U mad, bro?

People ask me how I get sales in different programs, or even recruit people into volunteer armies like USA Assoc. It’s very simple…

I always tell it like it is good or bad and people respect that nowadays. I have never been intimidated to go head to head with top earners, CEO’s, whoever, if they are running around acting like kids…

So here is what makes this post funny.

When Business For Home writes a positive article about ViSalus like all the articles I’m going to link to below:

The list goes on by the way of positive articles about ViSalus… the positive articles actually outweigh the few negative articles published on the site.

When Business For Home publishes that ViSalus does something GREAT, guess what?

The founders, top earners, and “challenge promoters” share that article ALL over Facebook, Twitter, anywhere they can show their friends and family just how legit ViSalus is.

But the SECOND they write how a few top earners leave to join a new company, all of a sudden is a fraud?

Sounds like a love hate relationship to me…

In America, you are allowed to do as you please. If you want to join ViSalus, awesome! Go for it.

If you join ViSalus and weren’t happy with the product quality or other issues you may have found, leave! Go join a new company! This IS America, isn’t it?

Why would Ryan Blair or other top earners get mad when 2 out of the 100’s of people they have earning 6 figures quit? It’s only 2 freaking couples for crying out loud…

vi til i die
Til Death Do Us Part

I know the founders are obviously “Vi Til I Die” as they made it very apparent after this massive social media meltdown. Although they are usually a pretty well oiled PR machine, the youth of the founders definitely showed after a few more of their top leaders jumped ship to a competing multi-level marketing company.

Just last month the MLM company Ocean Avenue filed a lawsuit against ViSalus for alleged espionage and theft.

Now this is not to bash ViSalus they have a pretty cool company and culture for the most part… but this is a business not a drama TV series. I mean if I was the owner of a big bad billion dollar company I really wouldn’t give a shit what the little bloggers like me are saying about your company… unless business isn’t as big as bad as it used to be?

Ah yes… their sales are WAY down and over half of their distributors have jumped ship.

Business is a roller coaster guys don’t worry, I’m sure everybody will come running back to try that new $100 per month Vi Crunch ‘super cereal’ 😀

“Cause many people think it, I just had the guts to say it” -Ludacris

Leave your thoughts and comments below… good, bad, constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Oh and don’t call my website a fraud… I have a right to free speech and can and will say good/bad things about companies as I see fit.

For example, if Ryan Blair would have posted something like “Best wishes to the two top earners who left ViSalus today, I hope you are happy with your new company.” Guess what? I would have wrote a completely different article…

Leave the PR to the PR department, leave the drama for the Kardashians… can’t we all just get rich from home without all the hate?

brig hart monavie
Brig Hart and I

Hi, my names Joe Stewart. 

Since 2009 I have been involved in the whole ‘work from home’ or ‘make money online’ niche and boy what a ride it has been!

I remember just a few years ago while working in a department store, my life would change… forever! 

A young gentleman would approach me and although he spent a few minutes asking me questions about a certain pair of shoes and the sale price, I was quick to catch on that he wasn’t in my store that night looking to buy a new pair of Nike tennis shoes…

…but to invite me to an ‘opportunity meeting’ where I could learn how I could create an additional $500-$5,000 per month income working from home.

After attending that meeting and listening to the speaker, watching him like a hawk draw those circles and numbers on the whiteboard, something clicked in my brain about the possibilities with this type of business model and stream of residual income.

I envisioned myself and my team on stage collecting those big bonus checks for multiple 6 figures, sometimes million dollar bonuses!

Little did I know that the multi-level marketing industry had a massive failure rate, huge drop out rate, and that the majority of people were making less than that of a part time Burger King employee.

I realized that even though me and a few of my leaders were making ridiculous income, not everybody on our team was having much success, if any at all :(.

Sure my upline mentor told me it was their fault, they didn’t follow the system, or didn’t devote enough time… which I knew wasn’t true because I worked that system with them and they showed up to all the meetings, training sessions… you name it!

Now when you tell your upline or somebody else involved in MLM this or point out the 90%+ failure rate in the industry they just brush it off with some automated response.

Well I don’t know about them but I’m no ding bat…

I am human.

I question things.

So eventually I took some time off from the industry to look at it and kind of reevaluate everything to see what my next move would be.

I was still obviously addicted to residual income and leveraging my time, but I didn’t want to get rich on the backs of my friends and family… I wanted them to get rich too!

So after looking around the internet for close to a year, I found out about a group of men and women who were making millions upon millions of dollars by creating high quality & low cost information products that not only people in THIS industry needed, but employees, musicians, celebrities, doctors… talk about mass market appeal!

I needed to find a product that paid out more money then peddling these silly lotions, potions, vitamins, and other crap that cost so much money to manufacture and cover ingredients as well as pay the product formulators AND us hard working distributors!

I tried everything… only to come to the conclusion that no matter what company whether a binary/uni-level/matrix compensation plan… no matter what product, juice, vitamins, skincare… doesn’t matter: the average person cannot get rich in this type of business model.


After splitting money with the corporate staff, everybody in your upline, the product formulator and scientist… you are left with NOTHING!

Yes, nothing… unless selling tens of thousands of dollars worth of their product to earn a few hundred bucks commission is worth it to you, keep pushing!

On the other hand, looking back at these information based/digital products whether it be MLM training, personal development, or simply a software and service provider that has next to no manufacturing costs, a small group of employees, and high profit margins for us distributors because the products are either free to create or next to nothing!

That’s what I’m talking about!

Finally… everybody can make 6 figures with a small team of a few hundred people!

Remember traditional MLM? Haha…

‘Recruit an army of 100,000 people and you too can become a millionaire!’

No thanks! I have a better chance over here 😉

Dive right in, the waters warm!

Vietnam’s Govt. is Outlining New Regulations to Fight Pyramid Schemes

vietnam, mlm, pyramid schemes, danang
Vietnam Fights Illegal Pyramid Schemes

Direct selling is legal in Vietnam and as a relatively new business it lacks the regulations to deter those who use it for scamming and manipulating consumers.

At a roundtable meeting on November 22 in Danang on journalism and communications in the multi-level marketing (MLM) industry, chairwoman of the Vietnam Direct Selling Association Truong Thi Nhi said that after 11 years and 96 registered companies, 26 businesses have folded and five have seen their licences revoked.

The companies were both local, joint ventures, and foreign-owned. A majority of the firms were producers and traders of food, cosmetics, and housewear.

The meeting focused on the legal boundaries of direct selling and the pyramid schemes that lie outside those borders.

Joseph N. Mariano, president of the US Direct Selling Association and chairman of the ethics council under the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations, said the fundamental difference between the two was that legal businesses were committed to transparency and ethical standards. He also said that direct selling firms are committed to giving refunds to dissatisfied customers, are conscientious in their operations, and have transparent commission policies.

Mariano added that pyramid schemes focused only on expanding their sales network and putting their teams to work while at the same time greatly exaggerating the quality and application of their products in advertising.

According to director of the Vietnam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade Bach Van Mung, the agency just finished a draft which has been transferred to the Ministry of Justice and would later be submitted to the government for approval.

If passed into law, the new decree would overturn a previous one in 2005 and is expected to strictly crack down on pyramid schemes.

According to statistics from the Vietnam Direct Selling Association, Hanoi is home to 47 MLM companies, Ho Chi Minh City 42, Dong Nai Province 2, Binh Duong, Hai Duong, Haiphong, Quang Ninh and Bac Giang have one company each.

By the end of 2012 there were more than a million people involved in direct selling with total sales of more than VND4 trillion ($190 million). The industry contributes nearly VND600 billion ($28.5 million) in tax and contributed nearly VND25 billion ($1.2 million) to charities between 2005 and 2012.
