YOU Deserve Peace of Mind!

Author Joe Stewart's New Book Self-publishing empireYOU Deserve Peace of Mind!

If you have toxic friends or family who bring you down, make fun of your goals & dreams, cut them off ASAP!

Don’t stoop down to their level & try to treat them how they treated you.. sometimes blocking these negative Nancy’s on social media is not enough.. you must block them in real life as well!

I know it’s hard & might take days, weeks or months to forget about them & the mean things they said to you..

Just keep it moving!

Nowadays I LOVE when people try to bring me down or make fun of what I’m doing lol it just adds fuel to the fire baby!! As soon as I cut out these people from my life, every aspect of my life got better.. I went from 4 years of writers block to pumping out a new book in less than a month.. and the reviews are GREAT so far!

I went from feeling tired and lethargic all the time to having more energy than ever before… YES it’s true, some people are literally energy draining vampires and surrounding yourself with them can physically drain you of feeling GREAT!

Hangout with those who LOVE YOU & support you.. those who were there for you when you were emotionally in the gutter, or in a dark place mentally.. those are the only people you should surround yourself with.. period!

Just focus on being 1% better than you were yesterday.. do 21 push ups instead of 20.. walk 2 miles instead of 1.5.. constantly improve yourself & improve your circle and your life WILL get better! Look I’m not some self proclaimed self-help guru douche trying to make money by telling you guys how to live your life.. I just share what was personally worked for ME!

Try this for a week.. and promise me that you’ll get back to me and let me know how you feel physically, spiritually, emotionally..

Fix all those aspects of your life FIRST and watch your business and finances fall into place… Love you guys!

Turning Skeptics Into A Volunteer Army of Raving Fans

Hello! It’s Joe…

I remember when I first started writing this book over 4 yrs ago.

Joe Stewart, MLM, create your own economy, network marketing, author
Create Your Own Economy By Joe Stewart

I really just wanted something I could hand to prospects/skeptics so they could get a better grasp on our industry & make an informed decision.

The original cover was ugly so I had to have that redone a few times, although they say don’t judge a book by it’s cover, unfortunately most do.

My original vision of it being a simple tool for my prospects has become so much more.

Nothing beats getting a message from someone saying they got their first customer by using something I teach in my book.. that is what keeps me going and motivates ME to learn more.. write more.. teach more.. become more.

Everyday I wake up and login FB to see someone else got a copy in the mail and uploaded a selfie with it lol.. each time you guys do this someone else sees the cover.. they either judge it and buy it or don’t.. either way.. it’s like a domino effect.. everyone wants to take part in the movement and it won’t slow down anytime soon.. just wanted to say I appreciate each and every one of you guys who have showed love.. shared my book with your team or FB friends & fam..

I truly have the BEST volunteer army on the planet and couldn’t spread the word at this speed without you.

Other than my supporters.. wanted to say cheers to my haters.. I know you won’t upload pics or show public love but talking behind closed doors is still talk.. still helping me out etc.. so keep up the great work ya’ll.. just be patient.. so much more is coming! 🙂

Here’s to a Better Future…

dream bigEveryone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn’t fantasized about being the one who hits the championship winning homer? Who hasn’t dreamed of being the homecoming queen? And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or successful, or happy with our relationships?

Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.

This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.

But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.

The most common problem to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do this.

However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.

Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately for the bumble, bee no one has told it so. So fly it does.

On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.impossible is nothing

Try this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down some goals in your life. Under one header, list down things ‘you know you can do’. Under another header, write the things ‘you might be able to do.’ And under one more, list the things that that are ‘impossible for you to do.’

Now look at all the headers strive every day to accomplish the goals that are under things ‘you know you can do’. Check them when you are able to accomplish them. As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other header-the one that reads ‘you might be able to do.’

As of the items you wrote under things I could do are accomplished, you can move the goals that are under things that are ‘impossible for you to do’ to the list of things ‘you might be able to do.’

As you iterate through this process, you will find out that the goals you thought were impossible become easier to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible after all.

You see, the technique here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard end up disappointed and disillusioned.

On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could send mail from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind. But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now realities.

Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work and discipline. But take note that that 1% has to be a think-big dream, and not some easily accomplished one.

Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort zone. Remember the saying, “No pain, no gain”? That is as true as it can be.

So dream on, friend!


Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations.

Think big and work hard to attain those dreams. As you step up the ladder of progress, you will just about find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.

I will see you on the beaches of the world…

Don’t Touch Your Phone for 10 Minutes, Provide a Day of Clean Drinking Water For a Child In Need

Higher Learning

UNICEF recently teamed up with clothing designer Giorgio Armani for the latest campaign in the UNICEF Tap Project, which has been striving to increase access to clean water for children worldwide since 2007.

For this latest scheme, they have created a mobile website app (you don’t have to download anything) that can tell when your phone is not being used. For every 10 minutes you leave your phone alone, Armani will provide a day of clean drinking water to a child in need.

According to UNICEF, 768 million people lack access to safe, clean drinking water, 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation and 1,400 children die every day from diseases linked directly to unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation.

Millions of children lack clean water. How long could you go without something far less vital… like your phone?

Essential Success Skill: Self Observation Exercise

Self Observation 

From the Dictionary

self–ob·ser·va·tion noun \ˌself-ˌäb-sər-ˈvā-shən, -zər-\


1: introspection
2observation of one’s own appearance
Here’s a quote to start this post: “Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.”

Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it’s painful… now I want you to do something and I want you to be totally honest with yourself. Until you know where you’re at, you cannot establish where you want to go. Every day is a new starting point, every week is a new starting point, every month is a new starting point it doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, today is the starting point for what happens tomorrow.

self observationSelf Observation Exercise 

So I want you to get a tape recorder or use the recorder on your cell phone and  I want you to record yourself in 3 scenarios. In the first scenario I want you to imagine that you’re talking to somebody that you have an interest in, not somebody that you already have a relationship with or a relative, but somebody that you’re emotionally attracted to, somebody you would want to be in a relationship with etc. I just want you to have an imaginary conversation with that person, and I want you to record it for 3 minutes… just go with the flow there is no right or wrong things to say this is just an exercise.

I know it sounds weird but this is a great little technique I learned from one of my mentors and wanted to share it with you guys because this information could be very powerful to the right person.

Next scenario, I want you to do it as with you’re speaking to a multi-millionaire… how would you speak to somebody who’s worth $50 million dollars. Now I want you to record that 3 minute conversation with this wealthy entrepreneur. You set the stage, it could be at a restaurant, or after they speak at one of their seminars, whatever you want!

Third scenario, I want you to record your dialogue with somebody who offended you. Just record it, 3 minutes each. Same as the first two scenarios. Just let it flow and let it go, this isn’t you actually talking to that person and they will never hear it… most likely YOU will be the only person to ever hear these recordings so don’t worry about being perfect or sounding like a pro.

I would do this self observation exercise every other week because I know we all don’t have the time to do something like this everyday or once a week even. But as you do it more and more, go back and listen to your first few recordings and see how you mature and sound differently as time goes on.

The way you view yourself is more important then how others view YOU… one day I tried to pay my bills with other peoples opinions, and guess what… didn’t work. So don’t let peoples opinions of you bring you down, it is simply showing their true colors and that they have some type of insecurity they are trying to hide from you.

Don’t be afraid to look at yourself in the mirror from time to time… YOU are beautiful remember that! If you’re not happy with the way you look go get a haircut, start to exercise more or eat healthy. I have seen people totally transform themselves just by making a simple decision and taking daily consistent action.

Don’t just be YOU… be the BEST version of you at all times!

I hope you have enjoyed this post about self observation and how they way you look at yourself or even talk to yourself in your head can either make or break whatever you are trying to achieve!

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.

Is Bitcoin “Too Big To Fail?” Regulators Worry About Money Laundering

bitcoin price soars
Bitcoin Price Soars

As Bitcoin becomes more popular day by day, regulators are getting worried about potential money laundering risks associated with this digital currency and its possible misuse by fraudsters to lure gullible investors into ‘e-ponzi’ schemes.

The Bitcoin Challenge 

Adding to the challenges posed by Bitcoin before the regulators, this e-currency is already being accepted by some online retailers in countries like the US, China and a few others, for various purposes including pizza delivery.

Hardly three years into existence, Bitcoin has already become the world’s most expensive currency with a per unit value of over USD 1,000 or about Rs 63,000, and it is posing all possible questions to regulators in India — whether to regulate it or not, who should do it, what should be the norms, how to regulate etc.

Those looking at this new phenomenon include almost all financial sector regulators as also agencies mandated to handle economic crimes, such as RBI, Sebi and various agencies under the Finance Ministry, a senior official said.

When contacted, an RBI spokesperson said, “As of now we don’t regulate bitcoins, but are observing developments.”

While regulators are tight-lipped about their plan of action, a senior official said that one possible way forward can be following the US, where authorities have decided to subject bitcoins to money laundering rules applicable to all other financial transactions in the country.

Regulators are also looking into claims being made by some entities of being registered bitcoin exchange providers, although they might have merely registered as a company with the Registrar of Companies with some generic business purposes.

Sources said that regulatory and enforcement authorities here are very much concerned about potential money laundering risks emanating from growing use of bitcoins. To make the things worse, this virtual currency has become the latest tool adopted by fraudsters who are promoting bitcoins as the next big investment products with unlimited returns.

A few complaints have already poured in about bitcoins being used by some operators in certain new-age and e-versions of multi-level marketing or ponzi schemes.

Regulators fear that this new phenomenon can give rise to a new kind of illegal investment schemes that could be very difficult to track and clamp down. This is because there is almost zero physical activity when dealing in bitcoins and nearly all transactions take place in the electronic format.

Being an ‘open source’ product, bitcoin can be mined by anyone through a complex computer software through solutions shared on an entire network, although the process is complex and such ‘mining’ can be done only on very powerful computers.

The huge surge in the valuation of bitcoins, from little over USD 200 to well past USD 1,000 during the last month, has certainly added to their investment profile and people are also getting attracted to it in India, which already has a few significant players offering bitcoin exchange service online in lieu of rupee or other currencies.

The collapse of another digital currency operator Liberty Reserve after charges of money laundering, as also the fall of a few other smaller digital currency exchanges in different parts of the world, have added to the concerns of regulators.

The US authorities have charged Liberty Reserve of operating as a global banker for criminals and of laundering over USD six billion of crime proceeds. Incorporated in 2006, it had over a million users, including about one-fifth in the US.

Bitcoin came into existence in 2009 and the current number of bitcoin units generated so far stands at about 12 million. However, only a small number of bitcoins are being used for real commercial and retail purposes and a vast majority of exchanges are taking place due to speculative investment purposes.

Besides, the US authorities have already come across a few cases of bitcoin being used for illegal activity. As Bitcoin becomes more popular day by day, regulators are getting worried about potential money laundering risks associated with this digital currency and its possible misuse by fraudsters to lure gullible investors into ‘e-ponzi’ schemes.

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.

Active Income vs Residual Income: Which Do YOU Prefer?

hump day

Hey what’s going on readers!?

Hope everybody is having an awesome Hump Day 😉

This is probably the longest I have gone without writing a blog post since I started this site just over a year ago.

I am usually pretty prompt and do my best to blog daily if not a few times a week.

But with the holidays, traveling, and visiting family… things get pretty hectic and something that is normally as simple as firing up my laptop and writing a post, is now heading to a Starbucks or McDonalds just so I can ‘steal’ their Wifi for a few hours.

Active Income or Residual Income: The Choice is YOURS!

That is what I love about residual income though!

Although I wasn’t able to use my laptop the past month (or more? Who knows…) I still got checks in the mail from work that I did close to 2 years ago. Can you imagine walking into your job and asking your boss for another check from some project you did last year? How about 2 years ago?

I highly doubt he/she is gonna cut you a check… because jobs payout in what’s called active income. You show up, do what they say for whatever you are scheduled that week whether its 20-40 hours, and they pay you based on the amount of hours you were punched in for x your hourly wage. Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve never met anybody who ever got rich in this business model. Sure, you can climb to the top of the corporate ladder and hey you might get to 6 figures or even multiple 6 figures if you are with that company for decades devoting 40+ hours per week to them.

What about Residual Income Though?

rock star incomeEvery multi-millionaire that I have ever had the pleasure to have coffee, lunch or do business with, have all gotten wealthy by creating residual income streams. So what is residual income anyway?

Think of rock stars, athletes, authors like myself, or network marketers.

Rock stars and authors write a song or book one time… they record it, master it and upload it to a CD or Itunes where it is now available to purchase until the end of the time.

Use me for example, I wrote my first book over a year ago. I haven’t edited it, or worked very hard to make sales of this book. I simply wrote it, published it, marketed it for a few months to get the title and cover out there, and now people purchase it day after day and I get a check in the mail each and every month whether I think about that book ever again. Same with rock stars, look at Elvis. He’s been dead for years but I guarantee you his family members still get royalties every month from Elvis CD’s, posters, apparel you name it… being sold month after month.

You see, rich people don’t have jobs.

They build networks.

They build distribution channels.

They build membership websites or shopping clubs like Costco or USA Association.

This way, they build the network, distributor base, or membership site ONE TIME and one time only… and people continue to purchase their products and services month after month if the products/service are as good as they say.

This business model is what attracted me to the controversial multi-level marketing industry. Think about it, if I was never approached to join Amway a few years ago, I probably wouldn’t be sitting here writing this post.

I probably wouldn’t have published my own book last year.

I would probably be broke, burnt out, and stuck in my job for another 30-40 years…

…but I decided to make a decision.

If all these multi-millionaires followed a system, did the work consistently and never gave up, what makes me any different? I have the attitude of “If they can do it, I can do it too!” I don’t put people in this guru like category where I think oh wow they make $100 million dollars a year I could never do that

…I see what they are doing.

…I follow them.

…I learn from them and implement it in my own business.

…my own marketing efforts.

…my own writing style.

…and guess what? It worked 😉

Residual income has saved my life many times. Ever have an unexpected bill or emergency pop up and not have the money in the bank to take care of it? It happened to me one time… I sat there upset all day even into the next day. Wondering what I was gonna do to come up with the money…

Should I head to the pawnshop with one of my prized guitars or amps? Maybe pawn a gold coin or tube of silver coins?

All these things crossed my mind that day… For whatever reason I told myself to stick it out another day, God is good and works miracles in times like these.

The next day I checked my mailbox to find a check from some affiliate marketing deal I stopped marketing months previously lol…

…and yes, that check covered my unexpected bills and I still had money left over to save/invest/spend you get the idea.

I hope you have enjoyed this post about why I personally prefer residual vs active income.

Which do you prefer? Clocking in and out everyday working hard in what seems like a vicious cycle?

Or are you ambitiously lazy like myself, and prefer to do work one time and continue to get paid for that work for the rest of your life?

Leave your comments below and let me know!

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.
