Show me anybody with a serious income and I will show you that they have people working for them to achieve it. They get leverage from their efforts by earning a piece from the effort of others. If we have a number of people working for us, this can add up quickly. There are two types of people working on the planet. Firstly, there are the employers, and secondly the people working for them. Employers leverage the effort of others. Workers work very hard but have a limit to what they earn because there is a limit to the number of hours they have in a day. The only way to increase your earning potential is to find a smart way to start earning from the effort of others. Otherwise you will always be limited by your most precious resource, time. Not to mention, if you want to earn a lot of money for your family it will be at the expense of the time you get to share with them.
True Leverage is Where Everyone Has the Same Amount to Gain
In a previous post, I shared that it is possible to bypass setup costs of starting a business and move into making sales the moment we start. This is much how selling real estate works. The product already exists, you simply help facilitate the transaction. However soon real estate agents realize the only way to leverage from the effort of others is to become a broker. This means I can train agents to work under me and for training them I get a percentage of everything they sell.
That sounds smart to me.
Here is the problem with this model. When the agent that I trained realizes that to get to the next level they too need to earn leveraged income through agents of their own. This is when the agent we trained breaks away from us and becomes a broker. Now not only did I lose a great agent earning me income but now I have a competitor that I trained. “True Leverage is Where Everyone Has the Same Amount to Gain by Working Together”
Comparing Affiliate Marketing and Network Marketing: Which is Best?
In that previous post I raised your awareness of affiliate marketing. This is where we market someone else’s product, merchandise, or service without having to contribute to their setup costs. We also do not have to pay their warehousing, delivery, or bad debt either. We simply cruise along by making 10%, 20%, or even 30% from referrals.
Let’s it one step further, and look at network marketing.
Network Marketing is a Billion Dollar Industry
Electronics and robotics are going to take away our jobs as surely as fracking and green power are closing down coal mining as we speak. An increasing number of people are already working at home on their computers. The smart way is finding ways to leverage off the efforts not just your efforts but the efforts of others.
With Network Marketing not only do you get to earn commission from the sales you make but you earn commission from the agents you train. Much like a broker in the real estate model. Here is the big difference. Once you train an agent in network marketing they have no reason to leave you to become a broker, because everyone you train has the same opportunity you have and they start as a broker. So they have no reason to leave and become your competitor. In fact, the Network Marketing business model takes it a step further by not only continuing to give you a percentage of profit from your brokers but also from all the sales their agents make as well.This is true leverage with the opportunity to accumulate a staggering amount of people working for you who all have the same amount to gain by working together.
Your own efforts can only get you so far because you only have so many hours in a day, but when you earn a small piece from hundreds of people working under you, your earning potential becomes limitless because you are no longer limited by the number of hours you can physically work in a day.
This is a fair, ethical, and honest business where everybody has an equal opportunity. The supplier sells more products, and puts more money into the economy, the people you help to get started gain financial freedom and you get rewarded for each of their sales because you helped get them started.
It’s no wonder network marketing is growing as fast as it is.
Don’t you think it is time for you to take a look at what we have?

You must have probably heard about various benefits of working from home – right from being able to work in your PJs to all the money you save on gas. Is it lucrative? Undoubtedly attractive, but working from home has a lot more to offer you than you have thought about.
Here are a few ways how relaxation from daily office routine and working from home makes you feel blessed:
No Office, No Stress
There are significant advantages, besides the obvious, to a lifestyle that doesn’t involve the office. The myriad small stresses of being in an office slowly start making their absence felt. That gossipy co-worker who asks you for help only to keep chatting for the next half-an-hour is no longer a worry and distraction. No longer do you have to deal with office politics that take on the tone of a Hillary vs. Trump. You can get as many cups of coffee as you want without having to be bothered about the disapproving gaze of your manager.
Commute Less, Live More
There are other reasons, apart from the financial savings, that 44% of Forbes’ survey respondents listed not having to commute as a major benefit. You no longer arrive at work in a bad mood because of the stress of sitting in traffic for one or two hours, snarl at everyone and mess up your work. The time you save can be given over to the fitness program you have wanted to try out, the hobby classes you are interested in or even simply taking care of chores around the house. That also means that your weekend is free of the chaos that normally accompanies a life in which commute is king.
Your Schedule is Your Own
The quality of your work and your productivity may actually increase once you start working from home. A lot of work-from-home jobs come with a flexible schedule so you can set your own deadlines and work at a time that is convenient for you. For example, I’m not a morning person and getting up at the crack of dawn was wearing me out. Once I started working from home I could sleep in, and being a night owl, I had no problems working late in the night to complete my projects. It also means that you can schedule your time with friends, family and pets without having to worry about working late or getting stuck in traffic or even missing out on important events. As a bonus, household appointments, such as the pesky repairman who always shows up late, can be scheduled during a weekday without you having to take leave from work. You can decide which days you want off and plan that vacation to Hawaii well in advance.
Not every job allows you the freedom to work from home, but if you are seriously contemplating a change in lifestyle that allows you more time with your loved ones and less stress, you should at least consider the option. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised at the changes you see in your life.
What You Want Is What You Shall Receive, Love, The Genie In You
We’re all guilty of thinking we don’t deserve what we truly want, at some points in our lives. Essentially, we think too highly of our visions and goals at times. But, really, we deserve everything we envision for ourselves. Our goals, are design points for our lives. And, you are your own designer, so make of your life/goals, whatever you desire. You are your own personal genie in a sense.
Want it, need it, get it.
We’re socialized to think that we have to work that 9-5 job every single day. We’re programmed to think that the right thing to do is to wake up, clock in, and do the same work each and every day of our lives. So, what is socially correct, is to basically be a robot that enjoys monotony. But, no one needs to live by these standards. There is no contract that you sign as an adult that binds you to this form of making a living. So, why are so many people conformed to it? It’s because people set subconscious limitations to what they truly desire to do for a living. It’s like having a nightmare while we sleep. We don’t make ourselves have the nightmare. It just happens because our minds are more powerful then we are. So, here’s what you do….you take that almighty mind of yours, and tell it what you really want in a career. Then, the “nightmare”, will become a dream turned reality.
Everyone has that inhibited career goal within them. They may think it would take too long to get there, or it’d be too risky, or perhaps others wouldn’t buy into your business idea. Scary, right? But, you know what is scarier? Never taking that chance. Never pushing yourself to start your own business, and bring your creativity and ideas into fruition. Never ever knowing what could have been a true success story….that is very scary.
We get just one chance at this life.
We all grow to have different ideas and inspirations that make us unique and different from every single other person on this planet. We are individuals that can each offer the world different types of expertise, products, services, etc. Our minds are like no one else’s. So, that alone should be reason enough to believe that your business idea will work. That unique mind of yours, created a concept that no other person has. It’s your idea, your passion, your dream, your goal, so make it happen. No one else has the power to make it happen.
You are your own genie
Your vision, your career goals, and your dream life, can only be determined by your efforts. No one else can push you better than yourself. It’s your job to lead yourself towards the road of entrepreneurial success. The task is simple. Don’t let your mind be captured by the norms of society. Knock them down. And do only what is beyond your expectations and theirs’. The result is a self made, genie who made their career goals come true.
Don't Have Money to Invest to Build Wealth? Invest Your Time
How to invest time instead of money to earn passive income
If you are like most folks you know that investing is a great way to build wealth. However most assume it takes being rich to get richer. But there is another way. It’s what bootstrap entrepreneurs with no start-up capital do to get ahead.
Sweat Equity and Perspiration Profit
Have you ever heard about sweat equity? Sweat equity is the contribution we make to a project through our own effort, as opposed to buying a share with our money. Sweat equity could also be the value we add to our property but we are not talking about this kind of sweat equity. I will bet you have lots of that kind of sweat equity, but the problem is it won’t pay you dividends until you sell your home. Sweat equity investments can not only be lucrative but can come with much higher returns than capital investments. However there is a catch, you only have so much time in a day. This is why it is so important to focus your sweat on things that will not only make you income now but continue to make you more in the future.
Sweat Equity is Effort that Adds to or Produces an Asset
Most people think that an asset is only purchased. But that is not the case. Here is a list of cash producing assets that can be built with sweat equity.
Writing a book
Writing a song or album
Building a Product
Creating an Educational Training Course
Building an network
Building a customer base
All of these things can be built with sweat equity and can continue to pay you long after you do the work.
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, they say. I used to believe that when I was working for someone else. That was the second dumbest thing I ever did. The dumbest was applying for the job in the first place. Once I had access to the financials of the company I worked for, I discovered that smart people get richer. Others are grateful for a pay rise to cover inflation.
It is Time to Have a Plan B
Employers have gone away from the idea that an employee is a long-term asset to the company, someone to be nurtured and developed, to a new notion that they are disposable. Before the boss disposes of you, you need to find a way out of the relationship. Do not kid yourself into thinking the boss loves you to bits for what you do, or that the company plans to keep you in comfort forever. That only happens to horses nowadays that gave of their best. You are where you are because you are a moneymaking machine. The only problem is you are not making money for you.
Building a Network and Customer Base
We are not best selling authors, musicians, inventors of products or educational thought leaders. All of these ways to use sweat to build equity requires a talent. We however we do not require any special talents because all you need to do to start investing with your effort to build equity is to build a network.
Anyone can build a network.
In fact everyone already has a network. They just don’t have a vehicle to turn that network into a cash producing asset. If you want to learn how normal people just like you are leveraging the power of networks to have more time, earn passive income and make their own schedule.
