When I woke this morning, I heard so clearly...You are a Teacher. Now I spend time with the Lord but when you hear like this, you listen. I got out of the bed, straightened my room and walked in the kitchen to make my coffee and start breakfast. It was as if my legs didn't work. I knew what that meant, I needed to find my laptop or a pen and paper and write. I love it! I now know the voice of the Lord. I'm not writing to talk about my relationship with GOD, I just wanted to mention this because its important to be obedient. I learned a long time ago that when HE wants to talk, I need to listen and take notes.
Any-who as I sit down, he starts with out me. Use this as a lesson for others. That has always been my goal so I knew there was more coming. Not to long ago, I had a life changing event. Now it may not seem as magnified as others but to me, it was more than just the fact of job loss. See, I had been through this same exact situation about 7 years ago. As I think back, its nearly the same time of year. I was working with a reputable company and was doing WELL and one day the rug was snatched from underneath me. I find it ironic that I'm thinking back to that time with the Presidential debates coming up this week. At that time, my job was outsourced to India with little to no warning or time to prepare. Needless to say, I lost everything. My car, my home, my "friends". I put that in quotes because I want to come back to that in a moment. Fast forward 7 years later, the same test is up again but this time, I had studied. I am prepared and I know how to ace this one.
It is now time for me to practice what I teach. There are so many people in my position right now. And there are even more people in a worst place than me. I feel like my job at this time is to teach others the lesson that I've learned. I want to teach you how to prepare for financial peace. You might be asking, what can you teach me? I can teach you how to focus on your goals, to market your business online and offline and to change your mentality from being an employee to a business owner. The rest is up to you. If you choose the vehicle that I'm using, GREAT. If not, I can still help you as a consultant. When I first started in this industry, I had the great opportunity to have mentors who cared about me and my family. That's what I want to be for you. I know what its like to lose everything and to live off of nothing for a while until I could take direction and become coachable. A teacher is someone who can teach you how to do something and help you avoid mistakes that are costly and time consuming.
Remember that we don't know what the future holds but we can look around and watch the trends. I know that anyone without a small business or home based business is in a worse off position than those with them. If I hadn't had a plan B, I probably would have lost my home again. But this time I had a plan and now I am working that plan and helping others to do so in the process. I don't have to worry about bills that much because the company that I am working with is so concerned with my family that they are taking care of them for us and its a beautiful thing.
If this is you, if you are looking for more income, or want to prepare yourself for the future, click here to see what I am doing to build financial peace. Be sure to put your contact info in the blanks so that I can contact you! See you on the inside.

I must admit, the title is strange but the point that I want to convey is simple. Small investment + a little work = elimination of household bills. How?? you ask. I've presented this concept over the last couple of weeks and it now makes sense to a lot of people but still unclear to a few. As I grow in network marketing, I am realizing that I was not putting half of my potential into my business. I admit to being a little lazy and allowing fear and worry to infiltrate my thoughts and take my off focus. I mean that can easily happen when life happens and other priorities get in the way. After watching a training video from my mentor, she opened my eyes to "forward thinking". See we cant do what we don't know and we must do what is strange to most to get what most don't have.
If you have never heard of flipping houses or don't know what the process entails, here is an article that explains what is needed to make a profit. There is also a show on HGTV that shows the more glamorous side of flipping houses. But for the most part, people purchase a house for "cheap", spend time doing work and upgrading it, and then sell it for a profit. That's a high level overview and precisely the same thing that we are doing in network marketing or any small business for that matter. Yes there is a small investment but what in life is free? Think of it this way, if you could invest $99 and receive $1275 in return, would you? I mean really think about that answer. Im paying $99 for a product/online business portal, putting in work by sharing my business and what it has to offer and in return, I am receiving incentives in addition to my commissions and pay. Those incentives just happen to be my household bills getting paid.

I was compelled to put this into writing after today's conference call. As you know, my primary source of income right now is with Vitel Wireless. This company pays household bills while you are building residual income. This is unheard of in our industry and the concept is really allowing ordinary people to advance their businesses quickly. But that's not why I'm writing. All the time in network marketing, we are taught that when you work for yourself, you have to have a mindset of a hunter "If I don't work, I don't eat". People that punch a clock everyday have a false sense of security that they will get paid for the day or paid for being there when that all can change in an instant. With network marketing, although it is slow to build, it is slow to fall. That means you are not entirely affected if one or two decide to quit as opposed to when your employer decides to "quit you" all is lost. I hope that was clear. Once you decide to win, that's it! YOU WIN. This applies to any business, not just my business or industry. Anyone who is self employed has the opportunity to go out and build their business as big as they want to. The sky is truly the limit.

When I meet people who are interested in what I do, I really believe that aside from the income, the thing that that they are most fascinated with is the flexibility. Yes, I am able to go pick up my boys from school and each lunch with them and volunteer for lots of things at their school; BUT IT IS WORK!! I still have to get up early, I still need to plan my day and speak to people, but the most important part is that I still need to work. Planning is really important to me. I look at this industry as outside sales. Having an outside sales position really helped me to work independently. So if you are interested in growing your income, please take a look at the flyer and if you can answer yes to those questions, you will be a perfect fit.
