Competition vs Cooperation in Internet Network Marketing

Most people in business talk about competition. I believe that cooperation is a better way to go about it. Network marketing is built on cooperation, and it is even more important with internet network marketing.

The Problem With Competition

In competition you limit yourself by the best that your opponent can do. I think Bob Proctor is the first person that I heard say this. When you compete you only seek to surpass the effort of your competitor. Competition does not necessarily push you to do the best that you can do.

The Quickest and Easiest Way to Start Making Money

Make Money in Network MarketingI love network marketing and I believe it is the quickest and easiest way to start making money. You probably agree that you could use a little extra income every month. Maybe you could use a lot of extra income every month. Maybe the idea of “network marketing” or “mlm” has left you with a bad taste. Bear with me for a few minutes and see if I can convince you that it is worth another look.

Unemployment Versus Unemployable

You hear all the time right now about unemployment.  People are going through layoffs, downsizings and rightsizings as companies seek to find a way through the current economy, or give up entirely and close their doors.

On the other hand, if you travel in small business / entrepreneurial circles, you hear people talk about being unemployable.  I’m not talking about people who have no skills and no ambition.  These are bright people with a lot of skills.  So why are they unemployable?

Would You Quit Your Job If You Won A Million Dollars?

Million DollarsI saw this question posted by someone on Facebook yesterday – would you quit your job if you won a million dollars?

Would you?

Knowing what I know now, if I still had a job and won a million dollars, like in a lottery, I would definitely not quit my job. Statistics show that people who win a million dollars lose it or spend it almost as quickly as they got it. People who have jobs don’t have the necessary mindset or skills to preserve that level of income.

My Dad Cannot Afford to Retire, But He’s Better Off Than Most

I often hear my Dad say that he cannot afford to retire or that he cannot afford to live past 85 years old.

That’s really sad to hear from someone who has worked and saved their whole life, earned a pension, and invested in their 401k. He’s done everything exactly as he was supposed to, as we have all been taught.

My Dad is an accountant. He knows all about saving, investing, and forecasting his money. That’s how he knows that he only have enough to live on until he reaches 85.

Home Based Business – A Good Reason

I met someone yesterday who has an excellent reason to look into a home-based business. She is the manager of a local department store photography studio.  The corporate office dictates the hours that her store is open without any input from her or feedback on what her customers need. She had to lay off all of her employees because the store isn’t open long enough to justify paying anyone and they aren’t making much money because the store is only open during the hours that her customers are at work. Talk about being a victim of Corporate America.

Building Financial Independence with Nikken

Network MarketingDo you know how to build financial freedom? Do you know what financial freedom is?

Financial freedom is the ability to go about your life, doing what you want to do, without having to worry about money. Sounds cool and maybe too good to be true, right?

Well, it is true because I know a few people who have it. I have blogged a lot about Loral Langemeier and I believe she has financial freedom. Some other people I follow that you may have heard of, like Mike Dillard, Bob Proctor, and Joe Vitale, also have financial freedom. Closer to what I’m doing, Reid Nelson and Dave Johnson are high-ranking Nikken distributors who have achieved it.

Regular Training is Critical to Growing Your Business

It is absolutely critical to get regular training if you are involved in a business.

If you have ever studied personal growth then you have probably heard that if you aren’t growing, then you are dying. That is very true. If your business isn’t growing then you will soon find that you have been left behind by the other businesses in your market. Things are always changing, new technologies and methodologies are constantly being introduced. A regular training program is the best way to keep up with everything that is going on.

Is Network Marketing Really a Pyramid Scheme?

Have your heard that network marketing is a pyramid scheme?

I had a customer recently criticize network marketing as a scam.  Her first point was all the pay-per-click ads she had seen on Google claiming that network marketing is a scam.  If she had clicked them or even looked at the URL she would have seen that it was actually someone selling a program like Magnetic Sponsoring that teaches network marketers how to prospect online.

Want to Pay Less in Taxes Next Year?

April 15th has come and gone and tax season is over for another year.  Were you happy with how much money you gave the government or would you like to decrease it?  Now is the time to look at that and prepare for next year.

I don’t mind paying my taxes every year but I definitely don’t want to pay more than I have to.  The best way to reduce your taxes is to be in business for yourself.  If you have a regular job then you know that you pay taxes on the amount of money you make then you pay your expenses with what’s left.  Did you know that businesses do it differently?  They pay their expenses from the money they make then pay taxes on what’s left.
