Should You Bash Others To Propel Your Own Business?

I’M SICK AND TIRED…

OK not really, I feel amazing lately…

But I am sick and tired of reading posts written by “leaders” bashing everyone else’s hustle.. I was guilty of this a few years ago because I was coming from a lack abundance and leads/sign ups weren’t flowing in my own business so I knew where you’re coming from guys..

Look, as long as you’re getting your money and paying your bills without punching a clock.. that’s all that matters!

People in MLM bashing forex.. people in forex (MLM’s mind you) are bashing old school MLM’s.. which by the way, have paved the way for you guys.. without the old school MLM’s standing the test of time, ya’ll wouldn’t be having the success your having right now..

I see affiliate marketers bashing 3-way calls or home meetings.. some of the same leaders who recruited ME many years ago… VIA a 3 way call!

Yes.. unbelievable.. I know.

I see old school home party networkers bashing online lead generation.. very misinformed.. if you’re gonna do home parties, at least document it.. stream it LIVE on FB so your entire network of 5k+ friends can watch it instead of the 5 people in your living room.. heck pull out your tablet and stream it live on Periscope/Google Hangout.. kill two birds with one stone, work smart not hard!

I love all of you… I don’t care if you’re selling information products, because I create & sell my own info products.. but do you see me bashing IM, Forex, Direct sales to move my books?

I don’t care if you’re doing MLM online or offline.. if you have to bash forex traders (whether they are doing it for the comp plan or the trading skills) to attempt to get people in your own opportunity, you should be ashamed…

…and to the Forex traders bashing MLM/affiliate marketing.. you probably never would have learned Forex or heard about it if you weren’t first introduced to network or affiliate marketing.. so cut the crap.. everyone goes from phase to phase.. physical product, back to a digital product that pays out more up front, then they check their residual in 90 days like oh f*ck nobody is ordering this anymore, guess I should jump back to lotions & potions again..

Why would you want to make yourself look like such hypocrites anyway?? You all will never hear me knock anybody’s hustle.. I may have a few years ago when I was building with losers.. but never again.. I have mad love and respect for anyone out here trying to break free from their job, send their kids to college, or retire their parents.. and if you have to knock how I do it, or how the next guy or gal does it.. that speaks volumes of your own insecurities and the lack of abundance flowing to you..

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.

Period.

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.

Vemma Realizes Negative Perception of MLM: Now An ‘Affiliate Marketing’ Company… Not MLM

vemma scamI received an email the other day from an inside source I have over at Vemma.

She was explaining that a lot of brand partners were leaving and switching over to online marketing/affiliate opportunities due to the higher profit margin involved.

I told her it is definitely very difficult to make the 6-7 figure income that top Vemma leaders sell to hungry prospects with all the manufacturing costs, ingredients, and all the overhead involved in producing these energy drinks and ready to drink beverages.

A few days later I received another email from her… she stated that B.K Boreyko sent out an email to the “Vemma Elite” members with the following message below.

Vemma now Affiliate Marketing Company Instead of MLM? LMFAO…

‘The U.S Regulatory environment is the toughest it has ever been in regards to MLM/pyramid schemes. To get ahead of the impending storm, we are contemplating making some changes to our terminology as well as our compensation plan. We don’t feel that these suggested changes will affect our brand partners activities too much. But the changes will clearly put us in a favorable light with regulators. We plan to discuss these in the Bahamas with our leaders. The general outline is below, I realize that we cannot have one shoe fit all markets, but this outline can get everyone thinking. We will need to make adjustments based on rules in other markets. Our goal would be to launch these changes in January of 2014, if possible.

  1. Our vision is to be like Amazon with their affiliate program. In the future, all Vemma brand partners will be called ‘affiliates’. We will not use the word enroll or recruit. Instead we will accurately describe what we do which is we “sell” products to people. The fast start bonus will be renamed the “New Customer Bonus”. We will eliminate all packages to join over $500 and rename the pack the “Affiliate Product Pack”. Instead of network marketing, we will refer to our business model as ‘affiliate marketing’.
  2. Every person that signs up in Vemma will be signed up as a customer, unless they buy an affiliate builder pack. If they buy the pack, they will be signed up as an affiliate or “brand partner” as they used to call it.
  3. There are two ways to become an affiliate (i) buy an affiliate builder pack or (ii) if you are a customer, you enroll another customer or sell an affiliate builder pack to a new person.
  4. Currently, we have reduced CV for customers. This was to help fund the three for free customer program. We are going to raise the customer CV to 60, the same as for affiliates (brand partners). Currently, we don’t pay a fast start on customers. With the increase in CV, we will now pay a “New Customer Bonus” which is the equivalent of the old fast start. This way, Affiliate’s get paid the same whether the person is an Affiliate or a customer.
  5. During the sign up process, we will have one button that says “Buy Now”. If you buy an Affiliate Builder Pack, a screen will pop up congratulating them as an Affiliate and ask them to agree to the policies and procedures.
  6. If a customer enrolls someone, they will become an Affiliate and asked to agree to the policies and procedures during the enrollment process.
  7. An Affiliate can qualify his or her position by enrolling a customer or other Affiliate on his or her left and right. The reason this works is because points are the same.
  8. There is no requirement to be on autoship (although you will need to sign up to get your free if you do three for free).
  9. There is no requirement to purchase product to earn an income. You can qualify for commissions by simply doing the three for free customer program.

I hope you have enjoyed this brief update about Vemma switching their business model over from traditional multi-level marketing…

…to now an ‘affiliate’ marketing company, like Amazon or Empower Network.

Top MonaVie Income Earner from Japan Faces Tax Trouble

Akira Tamai Fails to Pay Taxes on MonaVie Income

akira tamai monavie
Akira Tamai MonaVie

A leading distributor in Japan for the North American network marketing company known as MonaVie, failed to report any of the income he earned from making sales of the MonaVie health products, failing to pay about ¥100 million (About $1 million in USD) in taxes, sources said.

The Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau has reported the suspected infringement of the Income Tax Law by Akira Tamai to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office, though the income has since been declared and the taxes paid, the sources said.

The 45 year old resident of Setagaya Ward, Tokyo, is the top representative among MonaVie’s 100k members in Japan and has been featured in several trade magazine features. Akira Tamai became a MonaVie rep around 2008, when he began selling juice made from acai, the fruit of an Arecaceae family plant native to Brazil, according to a person familiar with the case.

He is suspected of not reporting income or paying taxes for any of the $2.8 million he made through MonaVie from 2010 to 2012.

According to MonaVie’s Japan operations based in Minato Ward, Tokyo, members make money by buying juice at a discount from the company and selling it at a markup to friends, family and other acquaintances etc.

Members are also compensated for sales made by people in their membership group, which comprises of members they introduced, members those people introduce, and so on.

Depending on how much they sell, members are granted titles, such as “Ruby” or “Emerald,” with higher ranks such as Black Diamond, Blue Diamond, or even Crowne Black Diamond like my friend Brig Hart before he resigned from MonaVie in mid 2013.

Akira Tamai’s group reportedly has about 70,000 people, a major portion of MonaVie members in Japan.

In 2012, he was granted the company’s elite “Imperial Black Diamond” title.

He is said to be virtually guaranteed to receive an annual ¥200 million (About USA $2 Million) from his group’s sales, which he has spent on foreign luxury cars and living expenses.

“His knowledge of tax matters was lacking. He intends to properly pay his taxes in the future,” Tamai’s lawyer said.

Network marketing companies like MonaVie work by having salespeople expand their sales networks by soliciting new salespeople, which brings in profits from commission and other avenues. Also called MLM, the practice conforms with the law, unlike pyramid schemes, which are illegal.

However, there is constant pressure to invite new members to bring in profit. Solicitation methods and other aspects are regulated under “multilevel marketing” in the Specified Commercial Transactions Law. Founded in 2005 in the United States, MonaVie is now established in about 25 countries worldwide.

The Utah based health & wellness companies main product is juice made from acai and 18 other fruits. A 750-milliliter bottle sells for around ¥4,000, and MonAvie claims that drinking 120 milliliters per day is good for one’s health. The company does not have their products for sale in supermarkets or health food stores.

MonaVie began full-fledged expansion into Japan around 2008, and Tamai was an early member. He conducts 400-500 seminars per year on such topics as “The Secret to Success in Anything.” Tamai’s activities have been featured several times in multilevel marketing trade magazines.

In an interview, he said: “When you see someone cleaning a public toilet, try telling them, ‘thank you.’ When you become an honest person, it will change your appearance and people will be attracted to you.”

The company said it has provided its members with guidance on how to properly file tax returns through pamphlets, bulletins, members-only webpages and other means.

The Japan News broke the story this morning, and I got my other sources and information from Business for home.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

Did Your MLM Upline LIE TO YOU Too!? (SHOCKING Truths Revealed!)

Have you ever sat there and wondered to yourself if what your MLM up line was teaching you, could possibly be totally wrong, and ass backwards?

You are probably asking yourself:

“Is there an easier, faster, more realistic way to build my new home based business, or do I truly have to “grind it out” and “lay a solid foundation” for 2-5 years in order to build a nice future?”

That is a great question and I’m glad that you are open minded enough to actually go on the internet and search for the answer, because as we all know most network marketers are pretty brainwashed by their mentor or the top income earner in their primary opportunity. So the fact that you are online today looking for a solution to your problems I’m proud of you and I applaud you!

MLM Upline Lying

So let me guess… your upline mentor in your MLM has probably been telling you to make a list of all your friends and family, call them and tell them about the new business opportunity that you have, and invite them to some hotel meeting this week so they can see a business plan. They say if you just repeat this process and work through the numbers for 2 to 5 years that you will most definitely make a very nice income, but is that the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

I call total BS.

Think of it like this… 97% of people don’t WANT a business, they want a safe secure job with a guaranteed income… they don’t realize that risky is the new safe.

So if you were to make a list of your friends and family members, we’ll say the list had 100 people to keep the math easy (I suck at math.) You can call the WHOLE entire list, tell them about the new “gold mine” that you found, tell them you guys are gonna get filthy stinking rich… and they are still gonna laugh at you and call it a pyramid scheme, PERIOD!

All you really need to do is get your message or business presentation in front of the 3% of people who have that entrepreneurial spirit. The 3% of people WHO DO realize that risky is the new safe, the 3% of people who keep their options open to making extra money.

After reading this you are probably like “WOW how come my MLM mentor never told me this stuff?”

Well my friend, it is probably because they don’t know it… and it’s not their fault. The reason 97% of entrepreneurs and network marketers fail is because their mentor is taking bad advice from his broke mentor, and spreading it around his team thinking it will help with “duplication” when in reality, they are just ruining their chances at success.

MLM Meeting? LOL
MLM Meeting? LOL

I know, I know… your mentor who joined back in 1980 built his entire business doing 1-on-1’s and hotel meetings before the internet launched. But nowadays, if you tell someone you have this new business opportunity that they must check out at the lobby of your local hotel Friday night, an immediate “negative light bulb” is going to go off where they already know its some type of MLM business, and without even knowing which company it is they will already come up with reasons as to why they can’t make it.

Maybe you have already experienced this… you found someone at your local Wal-mart, spent 10 minutes building rapport and getting to know them better, finding out that they hate their job and are looking for more out of life… but as soon as you brought up “business opportunity” or “hotel meeting” they ran to the hills right?

So how can you turn the tide around and have people approach you, who are already sold on network marketing or want to start a business for themselves? You do realize that THOUSANDS of people go on Google everyday and type in stuff like “How to work from home” or “How to join Amway, ViSalus, Your primary business etc.)

If you can really grasp this, you will finally start to sign up 1-2 people EACH and EVERYDAY into your opportunity!

You won’t have to go around Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Any mart… EVER AGAIN!

You are probably thinking Joe, this is too good to be true man… and yes, it is really good, but it’s also true.

It’s called attraction marketing.

The people you see on stage at your companies functions making 6,7 figures a year use attraction marketing. They don’t have time to chase people around Wal-Mart… people approach them.

That’s why they’re f***ing paid.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

Updated MonaVie Review for 2013: Dead Ship Or On The Move?

Monavie review 2013
MonaVie HQ

Hey what’s going on internet land you have Mr. Joe Stewart here the Author of Create Your Own Economy, and today I’m going to write an updated MonaVie Review for 2013.

As many of you may know, MonaVie is a very popular health and wellness company which uses the acai berry as their key ingredient. Since MonaVie launched in 2005, the acai berry has been seen in numerous products inside of the multi-level marketing arena.

MonaVie has been around for over 8 years now, a huge feat because most companies fail their first few years in business. MonaVie is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah and they were founded by Dallin Larsen and the corporate staff he put together.

Why Was MonaVie So Successful?

MonaVie was actually one of the fastest companies in the home based business industry to hit a billion dollars in cumulative sales. Now many people say that is because they had a very great product line that was sort of addictive and made people feel better, so they would order more and more of these MonaVie products.  But the one thing that they forgot to take in to consideration was that a master network marketer by the name of Brig Hart who made his fortune back in the seventies and eighties in Amway, was one of the first people to join MonaVie in 2005. His Amway team was responsible for over $5.5 billion dollars in sales, and he was more than retired from the network marketing industry.

So now it’s probably starting to become very clear to you as to why MonaVie was able to go from 0 to multiple billions of dollars in sales their very first few years in business. It wasn’t because they had great products, it was because they had the best network marketer to ever walk the earth as their master distributor.

So where is Monavie now?

It is October of 2013 as I speak this blog post into my smartphone, no I am NOT sitting behind my laptop typing this crap out I did that for many years, made a lot of money but its bad on your eyes from what I hear, and with this new blog beast software on my phone, I will probably never use my laptop ever again! To create content at least…

Anyways back to MonaVie in 2013… they just recently came out with two new products, a beverage and a capsule that is supposed to help you rest and sleep well at night.

They also just released a promotion where when you sponsor four distributors and you have those four people sponsor four distributors right like a 4 by 4 Jeep… they give you a two year lease on a Jeep and they pay for your lease as long as you stay qualified as whatever the rank is needed to get the jeep in the first place.

MonaVie obviously had to change things up in 2013, because as I previously reported their top income earners monthly checks have been cut in half, and they have had negative press on radio shows and popular blogs abroad.

Now there’s obviously nothing wrong with MonaVie, that’s just the public perception and how the media speaks towards them. All multi level marketing companies take heat from critics, and media outlets who simply don’t understand the business model.

The Future of MonaVie

You know, something that a lot of people have asked me is “Joe where will MonaVie be in the future?” To be quite honest with you my friends, MonaVie could be around to payout billions of dollars for another hundred years, or the FTC or SEC could step in tomorrow and shut them down like they did with FHTM.

I feel that if MonaVie wants to be at the top again, they are either going to have to lower the cost of monthly auto ship to get paid the full commission, or they’re going to have to lower the prices of their products if they want to keep the remaining distributors that they have left to stay with MonaVie for life like they once pledged.

At the moment, many MonaVie distributors are cancelling their accounts due to the high cost of the monthly auto ship. You can’t really blame them with the current economy, if they are not earning a profit with MonaVie then when it comes time too pay either their car payments or order 2 cases of MonaVie on auto ship. Wouldn’t you agree that they are going to pay the car payment? You bet!

I hope this updated MonaVie Review for 2013 has answered some of your questions about current MonaVie news, and where MonaVie might be headed in the future.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

MLM Success Tips: Your First 48 Hours In MLM… How To Make The Best Of It!

Your First 48 Hours In MLM…

first 48 hours in MLM
The First 48!

Hey guys! Joe Stewart here with a brief article about what YOU should be doing your first 48 hours in your new network marketing business, and what you should be teaching your new team members that you bring on board as well.

As of right now over 75% of network marketers either lose money, or just break even in their business so they quit the industry and go around telling everybody it was a scam… Lol.

The main reason this happens is either a lack of support and the RIGHT training from their sponsor…

…but the more common reason is they HAD the right training, the right sponsor, the right EVERYTHING yet they chose to do NOTHING !

It is VERY important that either you, or your up line mentor have a fast start training guide in place.

This way, as soon as you enroll somebody onto your team, they can read through it or watch a few of the fast start videos, and have a clear set of instructions as to how they build a list, contact and invite their friends/family (warm market) and so on.

How to get your Team Members to have Success their Very First 48 Hours?

Duplication is obviously the most important aspect to any business. I have built quite a few MLM companies and sponsored over 40 people into one of my programs, but were these people able to go out there and duplicate the success I just had? Of course not!

The company I was promoting at the time didn’t have a system or fast start training in place to help my new team members go out and bring on 2-3 new distributors or customers their very first week or so. The only reason I was able to is because I have been in the industry for many years and know how to build large organizations and get them into momentum fast. With the help of my laptop and mobile, I could easily get hundreds of eyeballs watching my companies presentation within a few clicks, but not everybody is an influential network marketer.

This is why I am so passionate about creating training, blogging, recording videos for you guys… so this way, if you join an MLM deal that doesn’t have a fast start training, you can simply refer to my website and send your team here so they can read and watch the training I put together.

So the first part in providing effective leadership for your new team members actually starts before they join as a distributor.

Let me explain.

You Want to Complete Their Enrollment Together.

MLM Team Work
MLM Team Work

If they aren’t in your city, this can be accomplished over the phone, on Skype, a Google hangout or whatever tech tool works best. You literally want to walk them through the sign up process step by step. I know this sounds too easy but it is often overlooked.

“You see that bright blue Join Now button up at the top of the page? Okay great. Go ahead and click there.”

Next you want to walk your new rep through the different starter packs that your primary MLM company has to offer for new distributors. There is usually a basic option for people who are on a budget, something for $19-$49 where they can just kinda put their toe in the water and test it out.

Then there will usually be a  middle package between we’ll say $99-$250, which would include some sample products if it is something consumable, or maybe more marketing materials such as shirts, business cards etc. Some companies have top packages for people who could care less about the cost to join which basically includes everything. When you buy in at the top package of most companies, you are qualified to earn all bonuses and commissions that are in the compensation plan.

After they have chosen their starter package, walk them through the back office, their marketing websites to obtain new customers and distributors, and also set up their monthly auto ship so they remain qualified to earn commissions and get more product in 30 days when they are about to run out.

Building their List: Crucial to MLM Success  

Next you want to help them build a list. I know, I know… this is kind of old school, but for beginners new to the industry who know nothing about online marketing and social media, this is their best bet to get into the profit fast. Start by going through their phone contacts, friends and family who are close by, their Facebook friends. Even if they don’t have their phone numbers and contact info right then and there, still write them down so you can go back to them later.

Once their list is complete, you want to move on to the motivational side of WHY they are building the business.

Find out their reason WHY!

Why are they building the business? Why would they take their hard earned money to start their own home based MLM business?

Do they want to retire early?  Do they want to pay off credit card debt or student loans?

Maybe they want to buy a bigger house so they don’t have to put their mom or dad in a retirement home. Everybody is going to have a different reason why they are building the business, but it is important that they write this down and put it somewhere where they will see it every morning when they wake up. Maybe put a picture that symbolizes their WHY as the background on their cellphone, maybe write it down and post it on your bathroom mirror or even on your fridge, whatever works best for you really!

Help your team see the long term vision for building a home based business, and they will stick with you for the long term.

If your team isn’t around for the long haul, your income won’t be very long term either!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

If you’re tired of your job and really want to work for yourself then stop making excuses and do it.

Though affiliate marketing programs and selling services you will find that having your home business is easier than you think.

All it takes is time and a commitment to succeed…

What Does Network Marketing & Two Ships Have In Common?

From The Desk Of The Beach Bum Author, Joe Stewart

mlm auto shipHello there my fellow marketer or wannabe network marketer.

You are probably reading that title, and thinking to yourself…

Joe, you have totally lost it brother.

Your new book was great and all dude, but what the heck are you talking about with the whole, two ships and network marketing thing…?”

Great question.

From one perspective, network marketing has NOTHING to do with two large ships.

Network marketing is really all about sharing a product or service that you are passionate about with your friends, family and new people you meet through living life. Then you would typically follow up with them by seeing if they are open to taking a look at how to make money from home, and if they are not, you kindly ask them to support you by purchasing some of the great products you now market.

On the other perspective though, building and maintaining a large network marketing organization AND a large residual income each month… there are two ships that are crucial to your success for you and your business.

Are you ready?

The two ships are:

The Autoship

and

Jumping Ship

Are you familiar with these two terms?

If you are currently building a network marketing company, you are probably on what is called an auto ship. You know, the certain dollar amount of products that YOU must purchase each month, in order to earn commissions in your compensation plan.

Here’s a quick story for you on the topic.

Back when I was in Amway (my first MLM) you either had to purchase 100 points worth of product each month, which equated to roughly $300 depending on which products you bought for example their vitamins and skin care have the most “points” on them, so most people would buy the expensive $100+ Nutrilite Double X or Perfect Pack, and maybe some skin care treatment etc. Although they didn’t have a mandatory auto ship, people were still scrambling to either order enough product to get paid, or make enough sales to retail customers.

amway auto shipThis is the key to MLM residual income!

If you are not ordering YOUR 100 points, or whatever it may be in your current company, not only will you not get paid… but your sponsor doesn’t earn anything off of you being in business either. The same thing goes for the people you recruit into the business. They must do “their part” by ordering the required amount. In most companies, let’s use coffee just to keep it simple… I mean who doesn’t like coffee?

So lets say it is $25 for a box of 30 instant coffee sticks, a month supply. The company would probably require that you be on a 2 box auto ship of $50… one box for yourself to drink each day, and another box to pass out samples to friends and so on. Make sense?

If your product is not something that people get hooked on or emotionally attached too, there is really no residual income because they will stop ordering after a few months. Be sure to put your business cap on when deciding which MLM products to promote… if it isn’t something people use or consume on a daily basis, the residual income aspect would be rather small or “wussy” as they call it at Empower Network.

The next ship has a lot to do with what I just said as well… the Jumping Ship.

This is when you recruit somebody into your organization, and after a few months they quit to go join a new network marketing company. This happens all day, everyday… and it frustrates hundreds if not thousands of network marketers each year.

frustrated with MLM

People become so attached to their MLM, that they forget we live in America… the home of Free Enterprise… Helllllllllo.

If your product is too expensive, not competitive with the products in stores or being offered by your rival MLM company, people will jump ship if that means they are going from spending $75 a month on coffee for themselves and samples, down to say $50. It simply makes more sense for them and their customers.

So again my friends, when you are joining your first MLM or a new one, be sure to look over the fine print and agreement you are clicking “Yes I agree” to. You never know what kinda corporate greed is hidden in the terms of service in some of these MLM companies.

Find a product you are passionate about! It could be coffee, energy drinks, protein shakes… or something non consumable like cell phone or energy service, or monthly marketing training. As long as there is a big enough market to where thousands of people would order and reorder your product each and every month (sometimes more) you will receive checks month after month, long after you have stopped building the business… and long after you are gone.

If you plan on passing down your networking organization to your kids, it is very important that your company CEO and corporate staff have agreements with their manufacturers, shippers, and any other portion of the business that they outsource so that their business will not only be here for 2-5 years down the road… but 50-100+ years down the road!

I hope you have enjoyed this article about the two very important “ships” in network marketing!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

Why I Chose Network Marketing: Guest Post by Derrick Alexander

Hi everyone, my name is Derrick Alexander and I decided to take the time to give you some insight about me and why I chose to pursue the industry of network marketing. At an early age, I noticed how hard my parents worked just to provide for me and we hardly ever had the time or money to travel and enjoy life. Many times, they would discuss about vacations and how each would have to compromise certain times to spend away with family in order to travel. The dream was nothing more than that as the years passed by.

My mother was laid off from the banking industry during my middle school years, which forced my father to be the solo income provider for the household. The family time often discussed for vacation became a myth. My father started a painting business in addition to his full time job to make up for my mother not working and her expenses. Eventually, my mother landed a job in the telecommunications industry and my father continued his painting business along with his full time job. Even though the money was better at this point in time, we had even less time to spend together. My father worked all day on Saturdays to provide extra income for us and even sometimes on Sundays, after we would come home from church. If the money was needed badly, my father would work seven days a week. This had eventually became a routine as I was involved in extra curriculum activities in high school.

One day, I sat alone and started to think do I really want that type of lifestyle for myself? I saw both of my parents work hard for years and did not have much to show for their effort in terms of family time together, other than church on Sunday. I decided that I wanted to start my own business once I was older and had the finances to do so. I did not want to work until I was old and not have the ability to enjoy life. I was born with the talented gift to draw and would come up with all kinds of ideas on what to invent and how to submit my inventions to be publish to the world. Then as I got older, I took a look at retail store franchises and decided that I wanted to be a franchiser like Sam Walton, not aware that I was developing the mindset of an entrepreneur. I thought it would be so awesome to have a store of my own and then expand all over the country like Walmart! My plan was to pursue that dream after I finished college.

In the mid 2000’s, I was introduced to network marketing, not really familiar with the concept, and thought of it as an non traditional job where I did not have to dress up to make money. After the second or third company that I joined, I learned the meaning of passive income, which is what interested me the most about network marketing. I saw an opportunity to do work and get paid continuously if I stopped working. Another concept that interested me about network marketing was leverage. I never learned about leveraging time and money in all of my school years.

When I found out that I could buy into a company’s system to use, not having to reinvent the wheel, and that I had the ability to make residual income by leveraging time and money through other people’s efforts, I was sold and never had any doubts about it. I was not skeptical like most people are trained to be when making life changing decisions and I have no regrets. I often times think back to when as I was a child, that I do not have to spend tons of money to buy products for my own business or just to start a business in general. I have been on the corporate America journey for sometime now and realized that it is not a part of God’s plan for my life. I have always had the heart to give and help others even as a child and I still do. I find the statement to be true that when you give, you will receive more than you gave in all shapes, forms, and fashions, not just financially!

As I close, I hope that my story will give hope and inspiration to someone who may be experiencing life challenges or to motivate someone to follow their dreams and not give up. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but you must be willing to strive forward and not turn around when things dont fall into your plan. We all will face adversity at some point in life, but it is only temporarily. I recommend network marketing to everyone because it enriches your thought process about life and how it enables you to fulfill your potential that maybe you thought that you never had. Network marketing also allows you to make the kind of money that you never would dream of making by working forty to fifty years of your life. Many people around the world have made fortunes by this way of life and there will be many more to come as we now live in the technology age. The new form of rich and wealthy is in network marketing and more people than ever before have adapted to this path of opportunity.

Monavie Launches Stress Relief Products and “FREE” Jeep Giveaway?

MLM News: New MonaVie Products & Jeep Giveaway Legit or just a Lease?

I was on the MonaVie official website the other day to see if anything new and exciting was happening in the world of MonaVie.

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t really heard anything about MonaVie in awhile, other then the news that Jeff Graham left MonaVie to lead a separate direct sales company based out of Texas known as Nucerity International.

Other then a Jeep Giveaway program known as the Build a 4×4, Earn a 4×4 Jeep Wrangler. So since I am familiar with the power of 4 since my companies compensation plan is based on a 4×5, you would probably have to recruit 4 distributors and help each of them do the same in order to qualify for the Jeep. Every MonaVie distributor who wins an iPad Mini through the iPad Mini Promotion, is eligible to win* a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4×4! The fine print states:

* Actual prize is a paid two-year lease of a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4×4 (subject to winner meeting vehicle provider’s application approval). Jeep can be substituted for a cash prize of US$5,000.

Where is MonaVie Headed in the Future?

We all know business has been rough for not only MonaVie, but a lot of the other health and wellness MLM companies that offer expensive health beverages and supplements that are considered “luxuries” in this economy. People simply cannot afford $140 a case super juice like MonaVie, nor the expensive $100+ vitamins offered by ViSalus Sciences, Amway and so many others.

That is the main  reason why in 2009 after the economy took a toll for the worst, Vi Salus came out with their meal replacement shakes and put all their marketing force on that. That is why they grew so well in a down economy because their message was simply replacing breakfast with a shake so instead of spending $100 on vitamins you are now spending it on breakfast or lunch etc… Now I am not here to pitch you ViSalus because I am not a member and the shakes give me headaches lol.

monavie rest and balance stress relief

In other MonaVie news, they recently came out with a new beverage similar to their emv energy drink cans but it is called “MonaVie Rest“. MonaVie Rest is a blend of 16 fruits, fennel, lemon balm, chamomile, and inositol, which helps promote a naturally calm, relaxed state. The product in the box next to the can of Rest, is another addition in their new Control Stress line of products.

From the MonaVie website:

MonaVie Balance helps your body adapt to stress while creating a sense of well-being. Use the non-stimulant daytime formula to help promote feelings of energy and happiness so you can deal with every day stresses. Then trust in the calming night formula to promote a relaxing evening.

A 24 pack for the case of “Rest” is $68 for MonaVie distributors and $72 for retail customers. Not much room for profit, but I don’t think MonaVie is looking for customers they want distributors to bring them more business.

A months supply of the MonaVie Balance AM/PM capsules is priced quite high at $59.

Hopefully these new products can drum up some new business for MonaVie. They have faced a lot of negative press the past few years with many of their top 6-7 figure income earners resigning from MonaVie, or joining a new company altogether and bringing a good portion of their teams with them. This has also brought up much controversy and even lawsuits as you can listen in here to my radio interview with Syndicated News about MonaVie suing one of their millionaire distributors.

I hope you have enjoyed this article about MonaVies new stress control line of products, their new Jeep “giveaway” promotion, and the future of MonaVie!

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t have the money then you’re wrong. If you have a computer and space to put it then you have all you need. You can also start you home business and work it around your job. You can gradually commit more time as your home business grows.

Xango News: VP of Communications for XANGO Announces New Compensation Plan

xango compensation planAccording to Dave Webb, who is the VP of Communications for Xango, the company will introduce a new compensation plan in September.

Here is what Mr. Webb had to say:

September 2013 marks the bold beginning of a momentous era within Xango and across the MLM landscape: At our XANGO Bold 2013 international convention, we’ll introduce a product that, similar to what XANGO Juice has done since 2002, will address the needs and desires of hundreds of millions of people around the world.

New Xango Compensation Plan?

This product, code named “X926” is a game-changer. XANGO is the opportunity company. And the opportunity engine that will power this new product and the business into the stratosphere is a brand-new comp plan within a comp plan, something never before fulfilled in the industry.

XANGO has led with innovation since our very first day, and this new opportunity actually is a compliment to the already stellar XANGO compensation plan: If you’ve been with XANGO one day, one year or one decade, your business remains intact and your efforts to this point let you build with the new product and opportunity from your established foundation. It truly is the best of both worlds.

We’ve taken the game-changing facets of the original XANGO compensation plan — like true 50% payout of commissionable volume, UniLevel commissions, dynamic compression and more — and we’ve added elements that set us even further apart from other plans. Without divulging too much too soon, here are a few pieces that have people so fired-up a full month before the official launch:

• The compensation plan for X926 will be volume-based, not based in structure.

• A lifestyle bonus we call “Drive Your Own Dream”

• Rank-advancement bonuses

• Reward trips even beyond the thousands of trips we’ve provided to this point

• Perhaps most noteworthy of all: We’re paying 5% on the 9th level.

And we’ve made it so that this new plan is available universally, right out of the gates — which is ideal for fueling the fastest-growing segment of our business, the Distributor-led “MB30” (“Millionaire by 30”) movement for entrepreneurs 18-30 years old.

This MB30 segment seems very very similar to the whole Young People Revolution or “YPR” going on at Vemma Nutritional company. It is headed up by 23 year old Alex Morton who is one of the top income earners in Vemma, now bringing in over $90,000 per month.

All along the way we’ve partnered with our Distributor leaders, and we’ve locked in on what’s necessary for fanatical, frenzied growth AND sustainable, enduring stability. XANGO is the company that brought mangosteen to the world . . . that led with the most generous compensation plan in the industry . . . that created more than 100 million-dollar-earners (and 27 multi-million-dollar-earners) in its first 10 years.

And XANGO is the company that will introduce a revolutionary new product and pair it with a revolutionary compensation plan, creating opportunity and massive growth in ways previously only dreamed of.
