Many people have asked me how to choose a home-based business if you want to make TRUE, Reliable, Residual Income. It took me MANY years to find a company that actually works. The MOST important criteria for finding a company is to find one that ANYONE can do and that has products that everyone can find value in. Keep in mind…Almost every network marking / mlm company has great products (or product) the way to measure on going reliable residual income is if the end user (customer) is actually using the product, using it up and repurchasing it. THE CUSTOMER MUST FIND VALUE IN THE PRODUCTS – Not just the distributor.
What happens in most companies is that the person trying to make money buys the over priced products, yes the products are wonderful, but they are very expensive and most people will not continue. Once the person stops trying to make money ( grow a business) they stop using the product. There is no value there.
I would be happy to chat with you further about the company I choose, listen to what you are looking for, and see if what I have might be a fit for you.

Lovely Words To Live By From the Greatest Salemen in the World
I greet this day with love in my heart!
For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures!
Muscle can split a shield, and even destroy life, but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and women, and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the marketplace!
I make love my greatest weapon, and none on whom I call can defend against it’s force!
My reasoning they may counter, my speech they may distrust, my apparel they may disapprove, my face they may reject, and even my bargains may cause them suspicion, yet my love will melt all hearts, liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay!
And how shall I greet each whom I meet?
In only one way: in silence and to myself, I say “I Love You”, though spoken in silence, these words shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and an echo to my voice and their heart will be moved!
And most of all, I will love myself!
For when I do, I will zealously inspect all things that enter my body, my mind, my heart, and my soul!
Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh, rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation.
Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather, I will uplift it with the wisdom and knowledge of the ages.
Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer.
Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather, I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth!
I greet this day with love in my heart!!
I become a great salesman!
If I have no other qualities, I can succeed with love alone; and without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world!
I greet this day with love in my heart, and I succeed!
When I think of leadership the words that come to mind are, integrity, enthusiasm, vision and serving. In a nutshell those are the words that sum up leadership for me.
Let’s start with integrity. Have you ever heard the saying “your actions speak so loudly that I cannot hear what you are saying?” A leader must have integrity. People will not follow someone that they do not trust. What is your personal code of conduct? What are you modeling? Do you expect people to do things that you are not doing? Do you say one thing and do another? Do you tell the truth about your business opportunity and what you are earning? Do you make things seem better than they truly are? Whether we like it or not, our team will do what we do and follow our lead. My suggestion is to be sure that you are someone that you would want to enroll and work with.
Many people in this industry are taught the fake-it-to-you-make-it way to do business. I believe we have got that line confused. I do believe in acting as if you have made it. I do believe in positive thoughts and affirmations, I also believe in visualization. I believe that positive thoughts and deeds are what are going to get you where you want to be. What I don’t believe in is telling people fibs, or down right lies about how much you are making, I don’t believe in living extremely over your means to trick someone into thinking you are doing well, and I don’t believe in “tricking the deal” so that people hear nothing but hype from you and then they are disappointed when things don’t turn out as you promised. It is our duty as professional networkers to be honest and upfront with people. To show people that this is a real industry that they can honestly make their dreams come true. This is a business with a learning curve. If you are willing to do the things that most people aren’t willing to do your life will change. There is a better way out there and we have it.
Let’s now move on to enthusiasm and vision. It is impossible to be a great leader without enthusiasm and vision. Leadership in network marketing is different than most any other industry because we are leading a volunteer army. A good leader has enthusiasm and vision in abundance. Where do you see yourself going in your company? People want to join someone who is going to the top, someone who loves what they are doing. They do not want to take on a project. How do you sound when you are speaking about your business opportunity? Are you excited to show people what you have to offer? Are you proud of your company and your products?
Once people join your business a good leader always remembers that he/she is the leader. People are watching you and ready to do what you do. Are you out there leading from the front? Are you doing the money making activities in your business, or are you on the phone complaining that no one is working and you don’t know why your business is not growing.
Last but not least, all of the great leaders I know are servant leaders. A servant leader is one who is up at night getting things done while others are watching TV. A servant leader believes in others when they don’t believe in themselves. One of my favorite sayings is “ look for the best and praise it.” A great leader helps people to be their best. They know how to genuinely encourage others. A servant leader teaches people the way to do things and then steps out of their way so they can shine.
Until next time, remember I BELIEVE IN YOU!
