  • Going Out Of Business – The Mayans Were Right

    Just heard this morning on Varney & Co. that for every $1.00 gotten from the American taxpayers, Amtrak – the government run railroad – spends $1.60.

    That is, $1.00 IN and $1.60 OUT.

    At this rate any real business would be out of business in a short time.

    But not the government. The government never goes out of business, so the government never has to worry about how much it spends or on what it spends.

    It never has to worry about getting its hands on more money either. It just picks our pockets for more. It just raises taxes!

    The real problem is not even this. The real problem is that not enough Americans realize this. They, the American idle, are too worried about who will be the new judge on American Idol.

    Just how in the world did the Mayans know all this was going to happen?

  • Wealth vs. Money

    Wealth is NOT necessarily money.

    Wealth is a standard of living, it is how weal you are able to live.

    Confusion of the two can cause extreme unhappiness.

    MLM Motivation: Why I Do This

    Here’s one reason I do MLM – Time Freedom:

    Being in business for myself allows me the time to take my 90-year old dad to Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium.

    And yes, he REALLY did see Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig play!

    I mean there I was just a few hours ago unaware of an entire blog and a group of outstanding and outrageous people. By way of an email I discovered Adam Baker and his most impressive and inspiring site:

    ManVsDebt.com where I also found a video of  him speaking at a TED event. His topic? Asking this enormously important and timely question:

    What does Freedom mean to you?

    I can’t recommend it highly enough so here it is. Don’t delay, check this out now:

    MLM Tip: How To Speak, How To Listen 4

    If you’ve been doing network marketing for even just one month, you’ve probably heard this one:

    “So how much money have you made doing this?”

    And for most of us it can be a real stopper. It certainly stopped me once or twice.

    Here’s Big Al with Art Jonak giving us a really masterful answer to this thorny question:

  • Like Too Many MLMers, Zynga Gets Zinged

    In a blog post, Paying For Virtual Pigs, published on January 5th, I wrote that Zynga’s online game FarmVille, where users run a virtual farming business, very closely resembles many badly constructed MLM companies. 

    Well, Zynga is in the news again and the news is very bad. And once again the parallel to bad MLM is clear.

    Here are the highlights:

    • Zynga users are ditching the company — and the stock is getting killed as a result.
    • Daily activity on Zynga’s social games fell 8.2% in May, following a 12% decline in April.
    • Zynga shares fell more than 10% Tuesday, June 12th, to close at $4.98, while just three months ago, shares were at nearly $14.

     Zynga’s games are free to play, but Zynga makes money when users plunk down real dollars to buy in-game items, such as farming equipment.  That’s not real farming equipment, that’s virtual, online, visualized, make-believe farming equipment.

     As I wrote before, the parallel is clear: there are REAL businesses and VIRTUAL businesses. The tragedy is that too many “business” owners can’t tell the difference, online or off, in the conventional world as well as the home-based one. Too many innocent and uniformed people are paying REAL money for VIRTUAL pigs, in FarmVille and in too many bad MLM companies.

     Looking for a home-based business? Look before you leap into a pile, virtual or real, of MLM manure.

    First, find out how you have been doing network marketing since you were a kid only you’ve never gotten the paycheck. Read this free classic eBook to see what it is all about and how to finally collect the check. And check and the video to the right.

    9 Reasons Why MLM STILL Appeals To Millions

    In a blog article I recently read the author, J.P. Hicks, was consoling those who are experiencing the humiliation of being unemployed and the frustration of looking for a job in the current dismal economic environment.

    He related a story of his cousin who has a $180K college education, is working part-time in a department store and has sent out over a two year span 38,000 resumes, all to no avail.

    Insightfully, he stated that society has “trained us to believe we are worthless without a job” and that “no one ever tells us to stop looking for a job and get busy building something”.

    Not true.

    Over my years in Network Marketing I have heard exactly that advice repeatedly. Hicks lists 10 reasons why ‘JOB’ should be a curse in our collective vocabulary and that we should shun all attempts at seeking one. Out of the ten reasons, nine could precisely describe the motivation for the millions who join the NM industry. Mind you, the author was not endorsing Network Marketing.

    Here are those nine reasons that very accurately define why MLM still appeals to millions and most likely will for a great long time:
    1. Working a job makes others wealthy, but not YOU. Self-explanatory.

    2 Jobs are designed to make you poorer. Because wages do not keep pace with rising costs. In MLM you are paid according to what your efforts produce.

    3. Jobs force you to get up at the same time every day: One of the goals of many Network Marketers is simply to sleep until they are finished and then get up.

    4. Most jobs require you to wear a costume of some kind  Wish I knew how many MLMers brag about going to the “office” in their pajamas!

    5. Bosses wield the all  power. This one hit home for me because I have never met a boss I ever liked!

    6. Jobs tax your income at the highest rate. If you’ve never heard about the tax breaks for owning your own business, talk to your accountant. And if you don’t have one, find one because you’ll need one and will be able to afford one once the ball gets rolling.

    7. Jobs steal your passion from you and deny you of  what you really want to do with your life. Another one of the greatest motivations for a vast majority of MLMers.

    8 You’ll never be in control of your life working for someone else: If someone has the power to end your way of life, then you will never be free. Who can’t get jacked up and enthused about owning their own life?

    9. Most jobs hold back your potential as a human being: Ah, this one explains all that personal development that is so intimately connected to Network Marketing. What other business or industry allows you to get to the heart of the matter for yourself and touch and mentor others to grab hold of their own life course?

    How To Speak, How To Listen 2

    Yesterday I cited Mortimer J. Adler’s book How to Speak How to Listen where the author paired the communication skills of writing with reading and speaking with listening. Mr. Adler also wrote that the pair of speaking and listening is more difficult to acquire than the reading and writing pair. Here’s why.

    Superficially, the two pairs appear to be parallel since both involve language and both are used to connect one mind to another. Yet there is a very fundamental difference between the two pairs and that difference is fluidity, immediacy and fluency.

    The written word was invented to be read, to be more or less permanent. Consider when something is written. It can be gone over and edited before it is released to be read. The communication is not immediate; there is always a time lag between the writing and the reading. This pair, when compared to speaking and listening, is static, resembling painting and sculpture rather than a performing art such as acting or dancing.

    When communication is spoken and listened to one is not able to go back and change what has been said and listened to. We can correct ourselves when we have misspoken but it is not so easy to forget our first and immediate impression of the performance — despite what judges tell juries to do!

    ‘Speaking and Listening’ has the element of ‘Standing and Delivering’ to it. This similarity may explain to a large degree why Network Marketers need these skills and also why they are very uncomfortable using them, lending insight as to why so many struggle. ~~~

    While I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Adler’s book How to Speak How to Listen , he does use a lot of examples from the classical world making the book rather academic. If you are a network marketer or in conventional sales, looking to improve your commercial speaking and listening skills you can’t do any better than Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter.
