Home Business Work Opportunity, The Complete "Blueprint"
Hi there, Guy here! You may have heard of me, but I would expect that most of you that are serious about finding a home business work opportunity have yet to hear my name before. I'll take a brief moment to tell you about myself and share with you my story about my own home business work opportunity and how I came to find success. We'll also talk about what to look for when choosing a home business work opportunity, where to start and what I've found that separates successful people from those that are not. For now I can tell you that in under 12 months I have become an award winning marketer and I've been a nominated speaker at the industry's largest event "No Excuses Summit 3" in Las Vegas, Nevada.
First, a short story about how I got started with my home business work opportunity...
I was young impressionable and -- nah, I'm just messing with you. I was 6 years removed from an undergraduate program where I had successfully received a degree in both finance and economics. In reality, I hated both fields. I ended up working at a commercial bank for a number of years, became a manager and was earning over a six-figure income by the time I was 25 years old (Not saying this to impress you, but press upon you).
I don't have to remind you what happened in 2008, but the markets came to a halt and people were losing their jobs, pensions and minds by the hundreds of thousands. My company, which I loved and helped to build, began it's slow descent into the abyss. We hung on for a longer period of time relative to our competitors. Finally closing our doors in late summer of 2010.
Enter a new future of a home business work opportunity...
After the collapse, I wasn't sure what I expected, but it was more then a pat on the back, a thank you, and "good luck" from my CEO who I heralded as a friend of mine. Not so much as it turns out.
I started seeking a solution to the slumped markets and I was clear that in the future, pats on the back and "good luck" were no longer in that "new" future. I would now wield my own future and create something for myself. My blood, sweat and tears are my own, and I didn't intend to waste them on an industry I didn't care about and CEOs who didn't care about me. Hence, the search for a home business work opportunity.
I stayed up late nights scouring the web, I wanted the freedom and flexibility of being an online entrepreneur. This was after a short stint with an MLM company, who shall remain nameless, and I got a taste of how awful that industry could be.
I got lucky, I'll be honest --
I had found a page and volunteered my email address as I'm sure many of you have done time and time again hoping to find something, but normally being disappointed. I had been receiving emails from a one Aaron Brookes [Fake last name to protect the innocent]. In my dismay they kept arriving day-after-day, till one day I was with a group of friends at brunch talking about our dreams and I made a choice that day -- "I needed an Online Mentor", I said outloud. This was my "Ah-ha" moment, I realized on my own this was not going to happen. I might as well be Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible trying to save the world once again.
And so I found one, in Aaron and in PRO U. Pretty much a match made in heaven and as I said I feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled in to this home business work opportunity the way I did. As they say, the rest is history...
I began my business in early 2011 and it turned out I had quite the knack for it (not to mention ten years of personal development training really helped), because as it turns out one of the most important 'success factors' of a home business work opportunity is your mindset -- Really! People think it's all in their action, but your mindset and leadership ability play a tremendous role in your value to others, we'll talk about that in just one moment.
The 7 Things No Home Business Work Opportunity Should Be Without:
- Ongoing Training
- Ability to Self-Generate Leads
- Live Events
A few things you'll want to consider as you look at your own home business work opportunity are listed above. Now, I want to be clear, do I believe that I have all the answers -- NO! Do I believe that I have been blessed enough to have a fantastic experience -- Yes. You can find out more about my 'Primary' below and how you can look at working with me personally, but my goal here is not to sell you on me or a company but give you the 30,000 foot view, educated you, so you can make the best choice for you, your life and the people most important to you, deal?
Network Marketing Companies, BY DESIGN are built as a pyramid (hence the term 'pyramid scheme') and if you look at the statistics 97% of people in this industry make under $100 a month. No kidding, but when you understand the structure of course it makes sense that the leaders at the top with the largest 'teams' make the most. It's logic.
I'm not knocking MLM companies, in fact, I know many people who have made it work and some of them are great friends of mine, people like Ann Sieg who is very popular among the MLM elite. You can see me and Ann hanging out here, because even Ann has shifted her focus towards this new model that I chose to open my home business work opportunity inside of. I'll make sure to summarize all of this in concise and clear language below and why I chose it over these older models.
I'm going to leave you to your own opinions about MLM, but my experience has been that they force you to buy leads direct from the company at a cost of nearly $30 per lead (which is insane, I can personally create leads for under $1.49), they don't train you properly (often telling you to "follow the plan", which no one seems to have), and have you rely on 'uplines' that aren't fit to run around the block, never-the-less a business with team members.
Mentorship: What you want is a mentorship relationship with those that have found success when it comes to your home business work opportunity. You want access to them, to be on the 'inside' so to speak. To give them a reason to want to work with you and invest their time in developing YOU as a leader as well. You'll also want a compensation plan and system that encourages this type of mentality from the top-down, You'll want to create the same being and action in everyone who joins alongside you. Cultivating leadership is pivotal for success.
Ongoing Training: These days things move fast, especially in online marketing (which is where anyone successful plays today) and you want to make sure that you are getting ongoing training on the latest marketing and sales techniques available. What worked two years ago is not necessarily What's Working Now. Make sure you are getting trained on three crucial areas: Marketing, Sales, Leadership.
Leadership: I've heard way too many stories where companies are disolved from the top. Meaning that the 'super distributor' up and leaves the company slashing people's residual paychecks by over 70% overnight. Ouch! Make sure that your income is based on your work alone, you'll find it difficult to find "rockstars" like yourself who will have a work ethic and resolve to build anything for an extended period of time. Most people are not cut out to be true entrepreneurs. In an industry that has such a low entry barrier you can't really expect to get much quality, the 'ole you get what you pay for adage. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get paid a lot for one sale versus collecting a little bit from many sales? Hmmm...keep that in mind as we explore more options in this home business work opportunity review.
Community: The truth is that most people have been brought up with the 'worker bee' mentality and I wish there was an "easy button" that could flip the switch, but Apple hasn't invented it yet. When starting a a home business work opportunity, realize that you will be home alone working, no boss (Yippe!), and no direction at first. Having a community that you can communicate with daily, bounce ideas, share experiences, grow, and learn together is vital to your success. Don't underestimate the power of community.
Masterminding: If you've never heard of this term; it's is a process where a group of people get together regularly in the spirit of harmony for a definite, major purpose (It was first document by Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich - Get your copy here). Aw with community, I can not express how important this process is for your own personal and business development. The ability to mastermind with top leaders in your company is an added bonus and will yield the fastest results imaginable. But how to gain access to them? Read on...
Self Generated Leads: No self respecting success story would tell you that they bought leads from elsewhere. Their leads are self-directed, super targeted, and they attack their respective niche like hornets who's nest was knocked over by an unsuspecting individual. With the cost of some company leads being as much as $30 per lead (which is insane!) and the unknown quality of these leads, your chances of success just got slashed in half times two (Math was never my strong-suit).
When you know how to create your own super targeted leads and have the appropriate marketing and sales training, you will NEVER have to sell anything at all. Your marketing will do all the selling and telling for you. You will just collect checks and let the marketing do all the work. Isn't that whole point of being a home business entrepreneur, freedom? I've never had to make one cold-call since starting my home business and you better believe that the first action I took in my business was NOT making those infamous "top 50" family and friends list. Can anything make you feel more sleezy then selling to the people closest to you in order to kick-off your business? Worse yet, what do you do when they don't buy or join up with you? S.O.L.
Live Events: You might be wondering what this one has to do with your home business work opportunity. Well, I'm so glad you asked! Forget those hyped up "rah-rah", "we are the best and everyone else sucks" events. You want to go to events that deliver actual training, quality, and true networking. When I attended my first event it was a major shift for me. I went from being someone who 'believed they could succeed' to be being someone who 'knew they could succeed'. The distinction is mild, but extremely powerful.
I see way too many people enter into an online home business work opportunity believing they should have overnight results, push button million dollar systems with zero personal investment. The truth is that a home business work opportunity is not so different then building any other business. It requires patience, resolve and investment. Granted with an online business you can be very successful in a 6 to 12 month time frame, operate from anywhere in the world, work on your own time, and have a global presence. Totally feasible in fact...
A bricks and mortar business typically fails (over 90%+) in the first 3 to 5 years, carries with it overhead, liabilities, insurance, taxes, training, and you have to be there to open/close in order to turn a profit. Old school way of thinking. This is quickly going to become an obsolete way of doing business in the coming decade. Time magazine has already predicted that by 2019, 40% of the American workforce will be independent consultants working from home. Do you really want to miss this transition by not developing these winning skills right now?
If you've made it this far, I think you are finally ready to listen to what I REALLY wanted to tell you about home business work opportunity. I had to communicate the above just so you can hear what I'm about to say, so lean in close and read carefully. Making money online with a home business work opportunity is NOT some pipe dream. It is very real, very sustainable, and can yield you massive income potential if you find a system and community that delivers on everything we discussed above. When I said before that I was lucky, I am, I didn't have to join a million companies to find one that had it all. Even better, this company is not build on a pyramid, it's built on a much more lucrative model called G.P.T.
It's what is known as a 'Top-Tier' Direct Sales Company. If you've ever wanted to get paid what you're worth, this is the only way to do it. Instead of making a little bit off of residuals and many tiny fractional sales, you can make between $1,000 to $20,000 for a single sale. You see how I made that font all bold and different colored so you would read it? I'm not joking...
Guys, this is your moment to make a choice that can change everything, if you let it. I know you have concerns, and most of them are valid, but not necessarily true. I'm guessing it's somewhere along the lines of money and/or time. Well -- you can't approach something that's has the ability to solve many of your problems, by allowing your current problems to dictate your choices that could lead to solving them. There's a huge difference between being affected by your circumstances or affecting your circumstances. And here's something I learned about money and time and I think is vital to success in your home business work opportunity...
Money and time are like everything else in this world. They are a function of language. They are just energy and humans, like anything, NEED to understand. We created a way to measure and experience this energy by defining and giving them the distinction of time and money. But really think about it for just one moment --
You can't "have time" you can only "make time". This is a complete misnomer in language. You alone choose what's important to you. Anything that is deemed important or to take it another step, urgent -- you will naturally make the time for. (I.E. When your car breaks down and you need to get to work or your child gets sick). What's more important than your future? So, Stop the stress already and stop making excuses as to why you can't do something you really want to do.
Finally, we come to MONEY (Bum, Bum, BUMMMMM). Money, in REALITY is dirty paper with dead presidents on it. It is nothing more then a measurement of value, more succinctly, a measure of YOUR value. The more valuable you can become to people, the more they will be willing to work and pay you for those services. Hence why personal and business development is vital to success. If you aren't learning new skills and expanding your own value and leardership, your Dead!
Money and time is the ultimate knee jerk reaction to people who don't want to think about what is REALLY holding them back and what is holding them back is almost never time or money. Anything...I mean anything, that you've ever really cared about or deemed urgent you've found the money for and made the time for. Validate it with your own experiences.
If you are serious and I mean DEAD serious about making a change in your life, then you'll probably have to deal with whatever it is that you fear the most to find your success. On the other side of that will be the life of your dreams. So what are you waiting for...? Create this moment in time as urgent and important to yourself and make the best choice of your life and those participating in it.
P.S. You can learn a little more about me below, the life that my blood, sweat, and tears created, and trust me all 3 were involved. Who my inner circle is and as for the rest of this website, I'll showcase my favorite people in the industry to you. The ones that taught and helped me the most and how you can get involved with them as well.
Also, keep an eye out, because I'll be scouring the web for programs, videos, and other articles to post it all here. Enjoy the website and I look forward to your comments. Both naughty and nice ;-)
