Not For Small Mindsets

3 Nov

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would want to have a home business based on Supplements. Until I saw what I saw for extended Health and better improvement of our health right now!! Let’s face it, we all get older and it appears we are also living longer so if that’s the case wouldn’t it be fun to live it at your best ever!! For me, it was a resounding YES! A big HELL YES in fact.

You see with having a disease they cannot find a cure for that goes in and out of remission and having to suffer thru excruciating pain for months at a time my antenna went up as soon as I saw this information. It is important to have the right combination of ingredients working together.

Over the Counter Big Box Store or Smaller

You might think because you take numerous supplements from a health food store or a quality brand name that is enough but I am going to suggest that may not be so. How much do all those cost you? I know that I have taken several and the costs are high! One that I have used, that is in this combo of ingredients is a bit over $40 and it doesn’t do 1/2 of what this combo does with the same product in it.

The other part of the equation that has me so excited is I have friends and acquaintances that have suffered for years with health issues they have no cure for. Yes, bandaids but nothing that truly goes deep enough actually make the ‘fix.’ I know this because I am in it and taking strong meds for pain when a flare up occurs is not the answer.

Now I have something I can share with them and others that maybe will be the answer to helping them find more quality in living their lives. I hope so with all my heart. I don’t want anyone to suffer if they don’t have to.

What am I looking forward to the most? A change in my own health and then of course the rest is like whipping cream on top of your chocolate sundae! Because there is so much more…energy, sleep, weight, mood, and living longer with purpose and the means to do so for so many is yet another layer of icing on the cake.

My new journey begins in a few short weeks as I wait for my product to arrive. Excited beyond excited to be sharing what it does or doesn’t do with you and anyone else who visits me on my blog. So if you are curious be sure to mark your calendar for the end of the month, Nov.2020 for a new and hopefully exciting post. If you know beyond doubt after seeing the video information please reach out to me and we will get you going in the right direction. It is truly something that could help someone you know or maybe even yourself.

And just so you know, I am all about the truth and what really happens. I can’t get excited and have you try something unless I can with all honesty share what it is doing for me. Just taking those 3 magic little capsules a day has made huge changes for me. You can see some of the amazing stories in my blog posts from others. I suck at taking selfies and doing the whole photoshoot thing so I hope you can read between the lines and feel my honest truths about what I believe so far are the best supplements I have ever taken. I think that is why so many have dubbed them as magic pills.

No It is Not for Everyone

No it really isn’t for everyone. Heck I was saying Nope, no way, nadda and all the rest but something happened to change my mind. What I seriously love about this business that I found is you DO NOT need to be a distributor to get the products. You DO NOT have to have an auto-ship in place every month unless you want that kind of convenience.

It is still a ground floor opportunity and we are now opening in Mexico and the Philippines as well as a few other countries. Canada, Australia and New Zealand are just a few. Living in the times we are in, with a world wide pandemic in place, having your own little home business is where you will want to be. Side hustle or more. It is always up to you and once again, that is what I love about this company.

When they make the steps as simple as 1. 2. 3. anyone can do this if they choose. Totally up to you. If you are however looking for even an extra $500 a month it is more than doable. Oh, and you don’t lose your place or have to do any of those ‘start over thingy’s’ others have each month if you don’t reach a certain limit. Yup! Been there, done that and not ever going back!!

A company who puts YOU first!!

A company who is growing so fast and all because it has changed the model of Network Marketing and MLM! How you think and view things has the potential to change so much.

When presented with a better, easier way will you stay where you are or will you change your mindset? You can’t fake it when you are passionate about what you are doing. It just won’t work…people will know!

When the Co-Founder and Founder of the company know without a doubt that those people, you perhaps, in the field sharing products are the ones responsible for making the company millions of dollars and proves it by putting it back in your pocket with the highest commissions in the industry and the simplest and strongest compensation plan in the industry today, should you want to build a team, you know you have found a company like no other.

Turning into Chatty Cathy today as this is/was not planned. OOPS. But listen, I am being 100% with you and if you are interested in starting a business or you have friends in other places please reach out to me in the comment section or send me a direct email.

Top 3 Marketing Platforms

Affiliate, E-commerce or Network Marketing

What Works Best for YOU?

What most people don’t realize when they first start searching for that perfect home biz, perhaps marketing online or selling ‘stuff’ is that it really helps if you love what it is you have chosen. What is your passion, what do you love to do?  Do you love being in the kitchen cooking for everyone?  Do you have a fascination with all things tech-related?  Do you have a specialized product or service that people are looking for? Like weight-loss or lifestyle-related. What ‘extra’ knowledge do you have that could help others?

These are just examples to give you some food for thought.  Not everyone has just one ‘something’ they are really passionate about so figuring this out first is a must.  Don’t even begin to think money, honey!  Not quite yet.  Whaaat?? I am serious. Unless you are 100% confident you have found the most awesome, unique product that will sell off the shelves, money is not going to be high on the list as you get underway.

Let’s have a quick look at what each category is so you can make a better informed decision going forward.

Why and What is Affiliate Marketing?

First up, For any newbies out there, what exactly is affiliate marketing?
Keeping with our plan of ‘Real Simple’, affiliate marketing is earning a commission by promoting other people (or company’s) products usually done in a blog or a website you have created.
Perhaps the best part of Affiliate Marketing is:

  • you don’t have to create your own product.
  • you don’t have to purchase any monthly products
  • there is no cost to join

That’s the beauty of affiliate marketing. You can begin making money as an affiliate as soon as you have a platform (website) and Domain Name (like a street address) to sell/ recommend products from. Sounds pretty easy, right?

Why you might want To Do This:

  1. one of the lowest costs of any online business to get started.
  2. no products to purchase
  3. can be done as a side hustle and worked into a full-time gig
  4. the learning curve is Simple.
  5. Age has no barriers
  6. Awesome income potential

BUT…It’s Not All Good News

There is that learning curve we spoke about, and while it can be simple if you know your way around the Internet and setting up a website it still has some unknowns. And there are some costs that are not spoken of upfront either. Like a domain name and hosting for your website. Yes, You can do some free sites, but you still have to pay for that site to be hosted and that my friend gets costly. Being aware before you make a decision can be critical if you don’t have enough money to keep going. Do your homework.

You made your niche choice, you have a domain name that relates well to your niche and you have set up hosting and made the arrangements to pay for that either yearly or monthly. Your host provider will get you going in the right direction.

You take that initial steps to set up your blog, writing articles, sharing pictures, and finding the programs you want to become affiliated with…BUT you are still an ‘UNKNOWN’. It is not derogatory it is just fact. It takes time to have people find your blog and trust you as well as the affiliate programs to accept you.

Don’t let this be discouraging, because it can be. Everything takes time and patience will be your best friend. Like when you get your first ” We are sorry, but you do not have enough traffic to your site. Please come back and apply another time.” yeah, that will sting but it is also happening to a whole lot of everyone else just like you! We all start at the same place.

While there are no costs to become an Affiliate Marketer other than your domain name and hosting which can run into the hundreds of dollars and advertising costs, you are actually on one of the best platforms I have ever used to do just that. They have some awesome plans that are affordable even to those of you just getting started with little to no capital available.

If you are going to do Affiliate Marketing, you must have your site up and running with content BEFORE applying to be an affiliate for your chosen products or service. This is a must do and even then you could see a few rejections if they feel your site is not ready yet. Sorry, but the whole point of sharing here is to tell you the truth so you might want to take off the blinders.

Drop Shipping or E-Commerce

Now, this is certainly a fun way to have a home business. There is no doubt in my mind. I really enjoyed my test runs but There is a learning curve involved here and depending on your knowledge it can be daunting. One of the most popular platforms you can use is ‘Shopify’. While they are not free, you do get a free trial run to test the waters before making a commitment. And your domain name and hosting will be included and that my friend is a big plus. Actually it is a huge plus in the scheme of things.

My thoughts on this are to have at least a minimum of $100.00 a month you can set aside for your business. This can get you off to a running start and you can always upgrade as your income increases.

There are actually many platforms you can use for Drop Shipping and a lot will depend on you and your chosen products as well as your budget. Ali express is another very well known and easy to use platform if you are just starting out. I actually suggest Ali express or Oberlo if you are brand new to Drop Shipping. They are excellent starters and very helpful, especially Oberlo when you need it.

An example of a test I did was with Oberlo and Shopify. I challenged myself to setting up a T-shirt site in less than 2 weeks to see if what they said could be done, actually could be. And I did it in 11 days! So, yes, they may charge you a fee ( they are connected) each month but it can be so worth it if you have a product idea or you are just plain passionate about doing something like this.

You will also have to take into consideration the advertising costs related to getting your products seen. This goes without saying for both Drop Shipping and Affiliate Marketing. Social Media is still one of your best options and if you have a unique product to offer chances are it won’t take long before you are found.

Don’t I need a loan?

And while having a business plan that shows how much money you could make and what your initial costs might be is important, it is not a prerequisite to getting started. Your costs can be minimal to start. You will need money, that is a must, but you can rest assured you do not need that big bank loan or a detailed and concise business plan to get started. How much you need will depend on your chosen path and your knowledge of E-Commerce and Drop Shipping.

As you progress and see positive results then you should consider upping your game plan to include extra costs like advertising and up-grading your store front. If you are planning to produce your own products then that is a definite game changer and you will need to be sure you have finances to cover your costs.

Network marketing

Network Marketing is still one of the easiest ways to have a home business and be successful. Again, what will stand out for most is cost. Your costs are actually usually less than what it would cost you to set up and run an affiliate site or a storefront for Drop shipping. Normally when you choose Network Marketing it is the product that speaks to you first and foremost. This means you will be using the products you are marketing and sharing that experience with others.

While most companies in Network Marketing charge a fee for their back-office and replicated websites, but it is usually a minimal cost. I prefer those that have a one time cost, to those that have a monthly charge. Imagine a one time cost of under $20.00 to get started or perhaps a free trial to see if this is for you before you commit? How awesome would that be?

In short, you have a website that the company provides for you and you have the products which you have fallen head over heels for. A seriously simple compensation plan and you get paid weekly! WAIT! HOLD UP here for a minute. What did you just say? Paid weekly!! Yes, and there is even more IF you are in the right network marketing company. Would you believe me if I said 50% commissions and over 100 countries? I didn’t think so…

You see, things are changing in this world of Network Marketing or often better known as M.L.M or Relationship Marketing or Attraction Marketing. They are in fact all one and the same. It just has a nicer ring since so many still remember those Amway days when everything was a big secret.

When I talk about network marketing here, I am talking online and NO party plan or monthly quotas you and your team must make in order to get paid. I flat out never wanted to go that route again so when I saw what I saw I chose to re-write my story. The one I told myself about this M.L.M. ‘stuff‘ and where my future was going before I saw what I saw. Truth.

What I saw Changed Everything

When I say that I am very sincere. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would attempt any form of Multi Level marketing again. But when I saw 5, yes just 5 products that were doing what they were doing my thinking changed to maybe. Then of course it went to if they can do this for others, can they do it for me too? is it all a marketing ploy? Hmm…

But then I regress as I am getting ahead of myself and my story that is so so exciting I can’t wait for you to read it. It has taken a long time for me to get the courage up to share even a fraction of what I share. I am doing this for one reason…maybe two…because it is the truth, it happened to me and now it is happening for me and if that is the case it can happen for others. Period!

KISS…Keeping it Simply Simpler

Losing is part of winning and that is also how we learn. We make mistakes…we just hopefully don’t repeat the same mistakes too many times. We learn from them and make the necessary changes to be successful. You can only be a failure if you STOP or QUIT altogether. Starting fresh or starting over or even choosing a new path is all part of that winner’s circle. It is all part of the learning process. It is what I chose to do and I know you can too if you are thinking it is time.

And just in case You are looking for an opportunity that is producing results from customers as well as business partners take 3 minutes and look at this video. You will see something you do not see from most network marketing companies. Then scoot on back here so we can connect if you have any questions. We are currently opening new countries which are very exciting and two off the chart new products in Oct. of this year. ( 2020)

No, this is certainly not for everyone. What appeals to one person may not appeal to another. Our paths may cross even when we choose to go a different way, it is the Internet and I wish you sincerely success in what ever that path is. Just please remember one thing as your search perhaps continues.

If it is really as easy they tell you it will be to become ridiculously successful right from day one, then wouldn’t everyone be doing this and be ridiculously successful too?

And that’s a wrap for today…
