Network Marketing Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

April 21, 2009

With all the news lately about traditional business being literally wiped of the face of the earth, in one form or another, the time has never been better for starting your own home business.

The old saying used to be that Network Marketing nets worldwide more than the automobile industry year for year. Well, what has happenend to the auto industry? And thîs is only the beginning.

Finally people have become aware of the fable that a secure, safe job is better than taking any chances on building your own home based business, and also realize that investing in yourself, is the best investment one can make. The attractivity of MLM is again on the rise. Wether it is simply to have an additional monthly income, some Network Marketing companies pay out as much as five times a month, or if you are seriously looking to replace your day JOB, or you have lost your day JOB, and need to find a new occupation, the reasons go on and on, but the fact that this business is experiencing record growth and always has, especially in times of economic crisis, is no longer possible to ignore.

There is a learning curve like everything else, when one starts something new. But unlike a new job or position in a traditional business, everything one learns in Network Marketing can be applied to everyday life, and most important, no one can take this away from you. The more time and energy invested, the larger your paycheck, and the more time and energy you invest in your partners, downline, the larger your paycheck. Where else in the world can one, through helping others become successful, reach success themselves. In a traditional business managers are afraid to let their employess know everything they know or have learned in fear that one day the employee will take their position. So all information is tightly kept secret and through this a team or business of thousands, are like one man/woman shows paddling their boats all on their own, hoping to one day make it to the top. This is a futile effort, not only does this seldom lead to a promotion in position or salary, to the contrary, we have seen the incredible number of illnesses and other social and health issues that have developed through this mentality.

Have you ever heard of mobbing for example in a network company. Mobbing would be the death of a network marketing company. It is all built and driven through hand in hand Teamwork. One does not grow in status in a network marketing company only to take each and everyone, who is naturally willing, with them to the top. It is a fleet of volunteers who love their company, love their product, but most important are educated in the benefits that this industry has to offer, as well as being 100% committed to themselves, their own personal growth and the privilige of sharing this wealth of information  with each and every team member regardless of their position or how long they have been with the company. We love people, we love helping people and with every soul we nuture and cultivate a self confidence that no one will every take from them. How far they get in the company is totally up to them, there is no pressure or someone standing over you asking if you have read your books, spoken with your prospects, placed your ads, and if they are, then they are not the right upline. A good Sponsor or Mentor, allows each and everyone to develop on their own, provides all materials to accelerate that growth, but the drive and motivation has to be coming from the heart of the new partner. When someone is willing to learn and invest time in themselves and be patient with the learning curve, does not give up, everyone succeeds.

This whole discussion that 95% of all network marketers fail is just hogwash. All people in every occupation suffer from the exact same business mortality rate. Why is it that 95% of all the people are either dead or dead broke at the age of 65? And this statistic is for everyone not just network marketers but for everone!!! People get over it already, you are lazy, worn down and just sick and tired of the old way of life, but as soon as someone offers you a Chance, you shrivel up and cry, I can’t do that? Please,  they are two types of people in the world today, very simply put, there are the Winners and there are the Whiners, which group do you belong to?

People quit, that is what they do, they quit their education, drop out of high school, quit their jobs, quit their relationships, divorce. Quit playing the sports they used to play, quit reading, quit listening, quit learning. We are slowly a nation of quitters, waiting for someone else to solve the problem. Well this is never going to happen. There is no free ride, no free lunch and the party is either over or you can wake up and join the party, it is never too late.

All new prospects or candidates I speak to are so concened about the risks they may encounter if they choose to step up and start a network marketing company. Let me tell you all who has the most risk, it is your sponsor, the one who takes the time to show you a new way,and cares enough about you to share their oppurtunity with you! They also shares endless hours, days, weeks, months and even years investing in helping you get ahead in this business, only to watch you Quit! Who has lost more then? You who try, attempt, all fired up in the beginning and with the first hurdle decide not to jump, or the people who have invested their time, energy, and guidance? I am sorry to be blunt but through my short experince in this business I have learned to be very selective. My time, knowledge and energy is way more important to me than to waste it on someone who is anyway just looking for an easy ride, or get rich quick scam. This business takes years to learn, years to evolve and then one can enjoy a lifetime of success. It is not something within the first few weeks or months or even years that one can expect this promised financial independence. And anyone who thinks in this manner should not even bother, you are only wasting the time of those who cared enough about you to show you a new way. Let me ask you something how long did it take you to walk, 1 or 2 years? How long did it take you to learn to speak? And then how long did it take you to connect words together and actually make a sentence? How long did most of you go to Kindergarten? How long did you attend Elementary School? Normally you are between 11 and 12 years old and you are just ready to start juniour high. You have a whole 6 years ahead of you before you even have a chance at a high school diploma, and then when you’re lucky you have four more years of college at least. with 22 years old, College Graduate, looking for a job!!!

This is reality, we have all succeeded to many of these levels and did not think twice about it. Even people who drop out of high school know they need to go to a vocational school, learn a trade, spend at least 2 to 3 years, and then they can begin to look for a job.

People are we crazy or what? Why do we invest so much time in things we were told we had to do, or in the case of college wanted to do, and ok maybe we complained a little but we got the job done.  And I am talking about decades of time invested, and we have to think it over when we are offered an oppurtunity in network marketing? On the average a new networker invests 3 to 5 years, working, learning and sharing and then they will see the fruits of their labours. We say that a new partner is really first committed after they stick it out the first year, then after the first year it becomes evident what htis partner is willing to invest in time and effort to make this(their) business grow. Dude, it is like a one year probation time before you are even taken serious, and then once you have made it, just one YEAR!!! Then you can start to rock and roll. What is a year or two or for that matter 5 or 6 in comparison to what we have already invested in time to get where are are or are not today? In 3 to 5 years you are going to be three to five years older, wether you do this or not. And believe me the Worl of Network Marketing is gonna does this with or without you. It has a proven track record and is on the rise in almost every business segment. So think it over settle for what you have and spend a lifetime complaining about it, or get up off your butts and do soemthing, it will be the most exciting, interesting ride of your life, and it is changing and developing with each and every day. I have never had more fun, it has not been easy and I am a far cry from where I am going, but I know I have chosen the right path. Like Robert Frost once said, I have chosen the road less travelled and that has made all of the difference.

One last note, please if you are not serious and ready to make a long term  commitment to this industry do not bother wasting anyone elses time. It is not fair to yourself or to those who offer you a chance to change. Work your 9 to 5, go on your vacation, max your credit cards and hope that you might get a raise, because other than winning in the lottery you will never have financial independece, and that is why 95 % follow the trodden path of working a lifetime, only to retire at 65 and have nothing to show for it, outside of a worn out physical condition and a bitter attitude about the world in general. And is your retirement money even going to be there when you retire, are you sure? I for one am not gonna wait till then to live. I give it my best shot day for day, love what I do and the people I meet and my life is richer for this experience, sure I am not a million dollar earner yet, but I will be, and reaching the peak of a mountain may be the goal, but the reward is  the journey one encounters along  the way. Follow your heart and do what is right for you and always keep in mind that whatever you do should always be in the best interest for all parties concerned.

Good Luck and I Look forward to seeing you on the Journey to the  Top!

OK It is Not Easy but it is Worth Every Minute!

April 17, 2009

Hi Gang,
Sorry I have not been able to post for awhile, rather hectic times, with so many projects that have required my attention:)

Finally have a little time to touch base.

Today I would like to share with you all the one thing, one requires to master, regardless of occupation, and that is to create an excitement about what excites you. Some call it Passion, other’s their calling. What you name it really isn’t as important as the act itself.

We are all proud of who we are and if not then take the time to list the things you have accomplished in your life, and I mean all the things, simple little things, things we sometimes take for granted, but none the less accomplishments we have made. Then sit back and realize you have a lot to be proud about. We cannot change what we did yesterday, last year or even decades ago, but we can change this moment. What you do right now, is like that stone in the pond, it sends out ripples. And when it is positive, it creates positive things. The opposite is exactly the same. Isn’t it a little crazy to keep doing the same things over and over again, and expect that the results are going to change?

Take one small step, something you really want to do, or have been thinking about lately, and just haven’t got around to doing it,
and do it for yourself right now. If it is something larger than list the steps needed to be taken in order to acheive that desire, and take one step in that direction. Trust me this works. Once you have created momentum the universe reciprocates. It is like playing ping pong, we only have to hit the ball, take the step. The next action is to see where the return ball is coming and decide hit again, let it go out, or adjust, tweek, whatever you want to call it, this is our free will and human nature all in one.

This game we call life was meant to be fun, and if it isn’t then it is time to stop,  not game over just Restart, like booting your computer, and play what you came here to do. In today’s turbo hustle and bustle, one can easily be sidetracked, get off course, but with a dream, a desire, a goal, all it takes is constant focus. Focus on your feelings, listen to the words and focus on your feelings, take a step, focus on your feelings, you will feel if it works, lifts you up, uplifting! or the opposite, presses you down, depressing, and then only you can choose to incorporate that into your life, or just let it be! We tend to get weighed down with the heavies in Life and loose touch with the Light, the lighter fun things! So children of the world,play with this and keep an open mind and an open heart. Life is way to short to Waste, one minute, not to mention a day, Year, Decade or a Lifetime being miserable.

Most of my appointments start always in the early afternoon, so everyone thinks I sleep until 11 and then get up and do my thing. Well, I have to tell you after reading a few biographies of some of the most influential people this world has ever seen, I have found a few traits to be a common thread. Many love to wake up before the competition. Get a head start on the day. Now this is not for everyone, but I thought to myself, why not give it a try. So here is what I did, about three weeks ago I decided to set my alarm for 5am. Crazy huh? Thought so myself, I rather liked waking up when I wanted, after working into the evening, or reading and researching one needs 8 hours of sleep. Well I must say within 1 week I started waking up before my alarm, first 5 minutes, then 10 and so on.

I have began to love this time, sometimes I am wide awake a 430 and just have to get up and greet the day! Now this is not about me it is just an example of how changing one little detail in your life can make a world of difference.

These early bird hours, we all know the early bird gets the worm, LOL!, are so precious to me. And it is almost like every morning is Christmas as a child, and I cannot wait to get up and do my thing, totally crazy. But, through this experiment, I have created a new habit and this new habit has allowed me to focus, expand and invest new energies, that I would say have been dormant in me for a long, long time. What used to take me almost the entire morning, ok 8 to 12, is now normally finished before 8 am in the morning, this has given me an additional 4 hours per day to invest in that which my heart feels is the priority for the Day. No, I do not go to bed at 8pm or even 9 but I have played with this and seen the results it has made, and this is just one little technique of literally thousands when not more, that we as an intelligent species living on this planet can choose to exercise. When we all do what we love and we respect the right for everyone else to do the same, wouldn’t our world be different. I guess we really can create Heaven here on Earth, it is only the question, Are You Ready?

What excites you? Not what you think people want to hear or see or read but really what do you want? You see I watched Ashton Kutcher today getting the Twitter world excited about http://www.malarianomore.com and being the first to hit one million followers. Wow, that was exciting, and now? All these people got excited got involved and hopefully will follow up on this great project that could end needless deaths of children. Isn’t that amazing? But my point here is Someone had an idea they got excited about shared it with others and the excitement grew, literally right before your eyes. We all have this power, you do not need to be a movie star, rock star, athlete, etc… to create excitement. Ok for us down to earth folk it may sound crazy, but this is it! Create a Buzz, that is from your heart, study, research and develop your information around that Buzz, and then send it out into the world. With today’s technology, Toyota’s  slogan fits to a T!

So where is the excitement? What are you excited About? And what do you plan, or wish to see happen because of this? With these few questions, honestly, dig deep if you have to, but with these few questions and their ever important answers you can change the World. Not in Years or Decades like earlier times, but literally in minutes, seconds, and even milliseconds. If that is not something to get excited about, then I don’t know what is? So I include myself in this when I say Let’s get off our Buts and Make It Happen.

Do what you love and the rest will follow, it is nature’s natural course, why do we attempt to alter this in any way? Perfection is just that Perfection, with all it’s Flaws we are all Perfect! So don’t you think it is time to Do Something? Like Just Be Yourself? Here’s to all those brave souls out there Just being themselves and having a blast doing it!

Everything you always wanted to know about Network Marketing, but were too Afraid to Ask!

April 8, 2009

“The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain’t so.” Mark Twain

Now that I got your attention, let me clearly state, I am a landscaper and not a Certified Public Accountant, nor do I claim to be, please check with your local government as well as with your bookkeeper to acquire the exact rules and regulations that apply to where you live and pay your taxes. Here is yet another huge advantage about network marketing. Everyone knows that being self employed or owning assets can reduce incredible amounts of taxes one must pay. Big Business has known this for years, and has managed to keep this little secret for them selves.

Well as Bob Dylan once said, “The times they are a changin’” As an employee in a traditional JOB, one invests time in exchange for a salary, which then in turn is taxed. Sure there are a few tax write offs, but for the most part, the average worker works the first 4 months of the year just to pay these taxes. And while they are full time employees, working a full time job already, the time required is in it self taxing. The majority have a minimum of 40 hours a week and then those who dare to work even longer, receiving so called overtime, in an effort to get ahead of one’s expenses, are taxed even more on the hard earned overtime hours. Well there is a way to keep your job and at the same time, as an option to overtime, set up a home based business, better known as network marketing. By investing as little as 10 hours per week you can claim tax deductions that until now were only allowed to those with huge companies in the corporate world. You must look at your new home business as a serious business and not just a hobby, many newbies say “we will give it a try and see if it makes any money”. This is fun, but very unprofessional. When one conducts their new home business as a professional, then with that responsibility, one qualifies for enormous tax breaks.

It takes time to create success in any network marketing company, and the visible rewards one receives in the beginning, from commissions on sales or the compensation plan, are actually way down the list in comparison to the benefits one is eligible for, right from the get go with just the step of making this decision to create a home based business. Here are just a few of the tax write offs Network Marketers become eligible for as a home based business owner, many of the things you are paying for now, become legitimate tax deductions. In the corporate world these are known as business expenses. The costs one occurs in running a business.

Things like:

• Your computer, printer, scanner, fax, telephones (Office Infrastructure)

• Your internet connection costs • Your long distance and cell phone service

• All of your office supplies • All advertising materials purchased

• All advertising in internet, newspaper, magazines, etc…

• A percentage of your rent or mortgage (Business is operated from your Home Office)

• The initial investment or the start-up costs you pay to become associated with your network marketing opportunity, sometimes including products you use for promotions

• Your vacations when combined with the appropriate amount of business activities • Your Clothing, Business attire required for your business meetings and trainings

• Dinner meetings / Entertainment Costs with potential clients or team partners

And the list goes on, mileage for travel expense incurred with your vehicle; here one must document exact mileage for these positions. Very simple to accomplish with a small notepad in the glove box! Isn’t it time that the average hardworking Joe, who now has the chance to benefit like the corporate giants, can finally choose to join a network marketing business, or start any home-based business. As a home based business owner, many of the things you are paying for now, become legitimate tax deductions. This is commonly known as redirecting your expenses. With just these few facts stated, and I am not the first to point these out, one can find endless information to support these facts. One my best mentors often says “after the facts the only thing that follows is the truth.” So my question to each and every one of you is when these facts as they are, are true, and publicly available to all who desire to know the truth, then why doesn’t everybody have their own little home based business?

“All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” Arthur Schopenhauer

I believe we were not taught to do so. I love, honour, and respect my parents, grandparents, and all my teachers for what they provided, they were only doing what they thought was best for us at the time. But we were raised and taught to get good grades in school, graduate from a good college, and get a good secure job. We then worked very hard and sometimes, when you were among the very fortunate you just might have been rewarded by our employers.

Do you all know what networkers call a J.O.B.? Just over Broke, how long can you exist if you lost your job today? Exist, not flourish and grow, but only survive, pay your rent, feed your family, put gas in your car, just be able to meet these primary costs of living? Most people have luck when the answer is 3 months, and even the managers, bankers and CEO’s who receive the Golden Parachute usually can only survive a year or two at the most before it is necessary to find another JOB or alternate form of income. I don’t know about you but I surely want more from life, more for my family, more time for doing the things I want to do, when I choose to do them and the freedom to work wherever I want, when I want, with who I want.

I found this on the internet and find it quite amazing. According to Sandy Botkin, the author of ‘Lower Your Taxes Big Time’ and a former IRS Attorney, “You would be brain dead not to start a home-based business.” I agree to a point. Lots of people with perfectly healthy brains just don’t know what they don’t know. Like our friend Mark Twain stated before. And I am in good company when I also say, one must either, love to suffer and struggle, or really is brain dead if you know the potential tax benefits and then still decide not to start a home-based business.

Botkin also has explained the following:

• You will never get rich until you learn to get your taxes down to the legal minimum

• There are 2 tax systems in this country – one for salaried employees, and one for small/home business owners

• A home business will make you better off than a second income

• Traditional job security has declined over the years and will continue to do so, making home businesses more attractive

• You will probably save $2000 to $10,000 per year by starting your own part-time home business

So what are you going to do? This may not be the answer for everybody, but I will tell you what I have done and I do not regret one minute my decision. Just Do It, like Michael Jordan said. Do not wait and see what your friends or associates have for experiences. Do not listen to all those trapped in their 9 to 5, misery loves company. And no one wants to be left behind.

So let’s be the ones to set the example for others, take the first step, there will be literally hundreds when not thousands who will choose to follow you. And isn’t that what we all came here for in the first place, just to be ourselves, love what we do and give the gift of financial freedom to anyone willing to invest in themselves and really become the leader that each and everyone of us has deep within our hearts and souls.

Leaders are not born overnight, they make a choice and begin to take baby steps, one step at a time.They choose to grow, make sacrifices, like turning off the TV, and reading a book, or helping a new associate learn the ropes of the trade. The path takes patience and resilience, determination and discipline, and no it is not a get rich quick scam, but rather a life long commitment you make to yourself, your loved ones and all the fortunate souls that cross your path in life. I may not have an answer for everyone, but I have a solution that will be right for many.

Start a home based network marketing business this year. Starting your own home based network marketing business may be the very best asset that you’ll buy in this lifetime. My highest recommendation to you is start a network marketing business today! Due to the unbelievibly low start-up costs, some as low as 40 USD, not to mention the enriching personalized training you will, should, receive from the person and team that sponsors you.

Naturally like all new adventures we undertake, one will have a learning curve to go through before they start making money. In the old days people believed network marketing was better suited to those outgoing, super people-person types who loved nothing better than to approach every person they encountered around town and tell them about their business. Or someone who was already well connected, and could build a large organization almost over night based on their established relationships. Nowadays you can still be outgoing and connected and succeed, that hasn’t changed.

What has changed is, if you’re shy, like to stay at home, or just too busy living your life to attend meetings and host home parties, you can still build a thriving business. With the use of today’s modern technology,the Internet, websites, discussion groups, blogs, the telephone and daily consistent action, you can work part-time on building your dynasty from the comfort of your home.

So if you followed any thing I have written and you are ready to start your home based business, or even if you once thought you weren’t cut out for network marketing, please consider taking another look. You may not have changed, but succeeding in this particular industry has. We all do not think twice about telling someone about a good book, or an excellent restaurant, not to mention a great film we just saw, and have we ever received a free meal at those restaraunts, or free tickets for the next film? No, as far as I now no one ever has, we do network marketing voluntarily, all the time, and do not get paid one dime for it! Isn’t it really time for a change.

I hate to be corny here, we have all heard this way too much lately, but it really fits. Can anyone succeed in network marketing, and my answer is Yes We Can! Wouldn’t it be something new to love filing our tax reports each year? One of my personal goals is to make April the 15th a national holiday, where every hard working tax payer can celebrate the day they decided to join the most incredible form of business in the 21 Century!

Who is Supporting Network Marketing? And Who really Cares?

April 5, 2009


A little foot note about me. I have been living in Switzerland for nearly 20 years now. I am a landscaper and interiorscaper from profession. I have always enjoyed reading, but, excuse the phrase, I never had time to read, always busy, always had other priorities in my life. In the past 20 years, I have read an average of 20 books, that is one per year! I just read an article that said that 58% of all high school graduates never read a book again after finishing high school, I was utterly shocked when I read this. The author went on to explain that there are roughly 6 billion people in the world today, and that 1 billion are illiterate. That means they can not read,  and include those who choose not to read, the 58%, this increases the number of people who only live on the information there personal experience brings, through numerous negative promotion devices, such as television news or radio, and nowadays videos on the computer. That means that at least one out of every six people in the world are limited in their growth potential!


Since my fascination with the branch of network marketing, in less than 2 years, I have devoured over 40 books. Just yesterday I looked at the list of books I plan to read next, and that list has grown to about 60! It seems the more information I read and learn from, the desire to read and learn, and grow has also increased. It is almost like an addiction, with each book I read, I learn about even more books that have been written and literally cannot get enough! The more you learn, the more you realize you have to learn. When the student is ready the teacher appears! Add to that the internet and all the incredible trainings one has available, almost half of my time is invested in personal growth! The other half is in manifesting and practicing the new tools I have read about.


I highly recommend reading! Regardless of the topic or field of interest, one must acquire the vocabulary in order to begin to process this information. Medicine, science, sports, business, finances, you name it each and every one of these topics has its own inherent vocabulary. And when starting off in a new field, one may feel bombarded with the new words and technology one is confronted with. But through determination and discipline, one quickly increases their own vocabulary, as well as intelligence. It is similar to anything that takes us out of our comfort zone, at first you feel awkward and lost, and suddenly with time and experience you begin to master the words and then, first then, the message begins to sink in.  And your so called comfort zone expands over time. With each expansion of your comfort zone your personal growth and development increases. God has gifted us with this intelligence and I am sure he would be happy when we exercise it, other wise we probably wouldn’t have this capacity, unless it was meant to be cultivated! It is a plunge into the unknown, not like in school, where we were told what to read, when to read, and how much, but rather the freedom to read that which you have a personal interest in, something you would like to know more about.

Before I get started with all the nuts and bolts of Network Marketing, I would like to post a few facts that are very relevant to the attention network marketing is getting these days. Several years ago, 2006 to be exact, Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki wrote a book called, “Why we want You to be Rich”. In this book they both point out that a financial education is crucial in achieving financial independence. In Robert Kiyosaki’s book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” there is also a predominant message that the more one learns, the more one earns. So if these two highly successful gentlemen have taken the time to share their experiences and wisdom, don’t you think it is worth taking the time to read them? And here’s the catch, even if you have no desire to be involved with network marketing, there are incredible amounts of money making tips, as well as down right common sense to be learned from these two, when it comes to your financial security.

Warren Buffet, one of the world’s richest men, as well as a fascinating and successful investor, has also created a book in 2005, titled, “The Warren Buffet Way”. In this book he not only points out some of his best techniques he has used, but the guidelines one should follow in achieving financial nirvana. Warren Buffet has also been quoted as saying, “Some of the best investments I have made have been in network marketing companies”. Ok, are you all following me on this? Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki, these guys are serious, high rollers, in the game of making money, and helping mankind, as well as making our world a better place to live. If they, just these handful mentioned have created such a track record in their lives and are publicly announcing this, don’t you think it is worth at least taking a look at? This information can be applied to almost every facet of one’s life, if only one would invest the time to read it, it just might change your life!


And now the best for last, Donald Trump has enough money, properties and companies, he really doesn’t have to work anymore, does he? Well his latest accomplishment is just amazing, and one more feather in the cap for network marketing. Are you ready for this? He has created his own network marketing company. If this is not evidence that the reputation of network marketing has changed over the years, then what is? Why would someone like Trump bother with anything if it wasn’t going to be a grand slam? Why? Because he knows it will skyrocket like many in the branch and become a fantastic opportunity for people to change their lives, not to mention getting healthier in the process. Isn’t that what everyone would like? Improved health, an additional income, and the chance to help others create the same for themselves?

There are many advantages this branch offers in comparison to the tradional business world.One of the largest advantages allowed through network marketing is the time one ventures to gain. Time is the only commodity that is limited in a world full of abundance. It used to be man measured wealth in the form of money, nowadays it has become common knowledge, that all the money in the world will not buy you better health, or love, and the list goes on. Today wealth is measured in the amount of time one has or gains. Time for your partner, time for your children, time for your parents, brothers, sisters, and extended family. Time for your recreations. This is very important, Re-Create, yourself anew. Here is where many outstanding ideas or dreams just pop into one’s mind or heart, when you are least expecting it! Bam, I just had an Idea! Why do you think when you are having fun, playing, suddenly something really good pops into your mind out of now where? Because in this relaxed state one is open to the universal truths and not under pressure, or in stress, or even stressed out! I have heard so many people say, ” I just don’t have enough time”, or “there is not enough time in the day”, it has even been shortened to the phrase, due to the lack of time and concentration to, “No time”. If that isn’t a sad sign of the times, bordering on serious psychological and mental illness, not to mention what this does to other vital organs in the human body. What did we all come here for if suddenly one has no time? This is ridiculous and it has to stop! We all have the same 24 hours each and every day. How we choose to invest them is up to each and every individual, it is a critical choiceone has the freedom to make daily!

Ask people the question, how did you spend your time today, notice the key word here, spend. Everyone is spending their time being busy, but the question is with what, a job? Is your job more important than your partner, family and friends, or even your fun and entertainment, hobbies, vacations and all the things that make you laugh and feel good about yourselves and the ones you love? And instead of spending our time, would it not be wiser to invest our time? And to look at each and every action we do as an investment in ourselves as well as time invested in others, not just our family but in mankind in general. This one shift in our perspective will make all the difference in the world, believe me, I have seen it with my own eyes.

In the good ole day’s, as my grandfather used to say, BYOB, stood for a party, where everyone was required to bring your own bottle. This blog is also a sort of party, where one can educate themselves and finally have an oppurtunity to elude the rat race and establish  themselves as an Independent Business Owner, or as we call it, Be Your Own Boss! This is a new section of Rocky Bradley’s Blog. Here, I will be informing you all about an old form of business, that these days has been gaining steam, as well as acceptability among rich and poor alike, the network marketing industry. There are many false labels this business form has aquired over the years, and now suddenly as the entire economic world crumbles before our eyes, people are starting to realize, a safe and secure job, is far from that what it used to be. Be prepared for some startling information, that I imagine, few if any have ever taken the time to inform themselves about. And while the Goliath is suffering, David prepares his next step. And this time, there is no stopping the natural course that has been taking place for over 100 years. Wether you like it or not, Network Marketing is a stable and expanding form of business, that unlike almost all other forms of business, is literally recession and depression resistant. And either you jump on the bandwagon now or forever hold your peace! No whiners, complainers, or eternal pessimists allowed. Either you get your education, find the oppurtunity that fits your requirements and come aboard, or you will be watching as the next generation’s ship comes in and you are still punching the 9 to 5 clock, hoping for a raise, waiting for your vacation, and praying you will not be the next to get canned!

Coming Soon!

Howdy Folks!
Well, the weather is finally starting to improve and it won’t be much longer and we will be able to be out on the road and in the gardens, taking more outstanding pictures of the Palms of Switzerland! As usually Mother Nature is taking her own sweet time. It is already official spring but until the 15th of May there is always of chance of freezing temperature. And the April in Switzerland is known to have a mind all it’s own. Between freezing, ocassional snow storms and even scorching warm, sunny weather, one rarely knows what to expect here in the land of Mountains and Chocolate:)

If we have a little luck tomorrow might provide a nice day, that we may again continue our palm hunting expedition! Thanks for following and please feel free to drop us a line when you have any special wishes.

Signing off for now.

I wish you all,
Another Day in Paradise!
