Wall Street Journal: Direct Selling

The Wall Street Journal, one of the most respected Newspapers in the world, recently ran this supplement on the Direct Selling Industry:

“In 2010, Direct Selling companies generated over $125 BILLION in revenue in 150 countries through more than 75 million men and women who are changing lives serving others. This is the story of Direct Selling.”

The purpose of my website and blog, is to promote legitimate network marketing, to educate on the difference between this and pyramid scams and to try to find the person or persons, to help me build a life changing opportunity in Ireland. I really believe in this Industry, it has change my life, but now I want to make a long term recurring revenue, from bills people are going to pay anyway!

I want to build the pension, but I want it in an ethical and moral fashion, I want to help others, I want to build financial independence for my family, I want choice, Independence and control, fun, love and money. But I want it in a way that suits my life, the tie and the money, what is wrong with that?

If you want to know more, contact me, what have you got to lose?

78% of Irish Women say Work Life Balance hit in recession

I read this article in the Metro yesterday:

“More than three quarters (78%) of Irish Women say they struggle with balancing work and family commitments during recession.

According to a survey by Quinn Healthcare, three in five adults say their stress levels have increased due to work demands since recession began.

Some 53% of men say their persona life is suffering because of work, but women are more likely to seek help, with 45% likely to seek counselling if it was offered by their employer.”

So what have you got to lose by looking for an alternative?
What if there was a way to have the time and the money?
What if you could help others to do the same?
Well it can be that way.

Have a look around this site, for financial and personal independence, http://www.teamireland.acnrep.com http://www.teamireand.eu and especially this blog for a simple approach in easy language!

Six reasons to become an entrepreneur

I was just revising the website and found this article, it says it all really!!!

Why You Should Start Your Own Business Today
Six reasons to become an entrepreneur

Erin Casey John David Mann May 5, 2008

John was 53 when the bad news hit: His department was being moved offshore. Since joining the company eight years earlier, he had worked his way up to a solid position in middle management with a decent salary and great benefits. Now, he was out of a job.

Having spent his entire adult life in corporate positions, he knew he could go job hunting. But this was the fifth time he’d had a “secure” position shot out from under him, whether through downsizing, restructuring or other reorganization. With a wife and two teenagers to clothe and feed, he was no longer willing to trust his future to this game of corporate roulette. It was time to go into business for himself.

The Great Migration
Across the country and around the world, legions of people are abandoning their dependence on big business and seeking independence through their own enterprises. Every month, about 1 million Americans go through some type of job change or loss, and increasingly they are deciding to st art their own businesses.

In a recent report titled Work, Entrepreneurship and Opportunity in 21st Century America, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “Millions of Americans are embracing entrepreneurship by running their own small businesses, through independent contracting or direct selling.” The report also cited a recent Gallup poll finding that 61 percent of Americans now say they prefer to be their own bosses
6 Benefits of Entrepreneurship

1. Job Security.

Only a generation or two ago, going into business for yourself was considered risky, and the safest route was to get a good job in a large firm. Now, working for a traditional corporation has become the risky option. Working for yourself has become the new job security. “If I’m working for someone else, I’m trading time for money, but I’m not building any equity,” says Duncan MacPherson, co-founder and co-CEO of Pareto Systems, a consulting firm. “As an entrepreneur, I’m the master of my own destiny.

2. Freedom.

People love the benefits of working for themselves and enjoy the freedom they gain from designing their own prosperity. You get to choose when you work, how you work and with whom you work. Best of all, you don’t have to make the agonizing choice between time for family and time for business.

3. Flexibility.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in a big city or small town.
Entrepreneurship is an equal-opportunity employer. E-mail, cheap teleconferencing and a new generation of Web tools make it possible to run a fully competitive business from a home desktop. As a home-based businessperson, you can expand your business to Chicago, San Francisco, Hong Kong and London—and still make the soccer game.

4. Make More Money.

There is far greater opportunity to make money by building your own business than by working for someone else’s.
“Everyone has heard the phrase, ‘The American Dream.’ I look at it as ‘The American Reality,’ ” says Jeffrey Gitomer, best-selling author of the Little Red Book of Selling and the Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude. “When you’re in business for yourself, you write your own history, you write your own success story, you write your own legacy and most important, you write your own paycheck. Being in business for yourself gives you the opportunity to work your heart out for something you love.”

5. A Life of Greater Impact.

In the Decipher study, 84 percent of respondents said they would be more passionate about their work if they owned their own business. The No. 1 reason they gave for wanting to work for themselves: “to be more passionate about my work life.”

6. A Second Career.

The nation’s 78 million baby boomers are just starting to reach retirement age, yet they’re realizing that they can’t afford to retire. What’s more, they don’t want to. Dr. Mary Furlong, author of Turning Silver into Gold, says, “Boomers are looking for ways to give back. They are taking the reins of their own futures and redefining their lives. They want work that reflects their values and identity; they want to make a difference.” A landmark study by MetLife Foundation and Civic Ventures found that 50 percent of Americans in their 50s and 60s want to do work “that matters.”

Taking the Plunge

“Leaving the rat race is not as daunting as it may seem,” says author Dan Clements in his guide to worklife balance, Escape 101.
“You’ll look back in later years and marvel at how easy it was and how much you gained for so little cost.”

So what does it take?

First, let’s look at what it doesn’t take.

You don’t need an MBA
or high-powered business background, and
you don’t need to be rich or
to take a second mortgage on your home.

Some self-owned business opportunities require expertise, such as consulting, or can take
significant capital investment and possibly training, such as real estate investing and franchises;
some can be started on a shoestring and prove quite lucrative, including direct selling and online opportunities.

Many of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time began with no advanced degrees and hardly any startup capital.

But make no mistake about it:
What you save in cash capital you will make up for in sweat equity and passion.

The major investment in most self-owned businesses is investment of one’s self in the form of time, focus and persistence.

You don’t need to be a genius at negotiation or a whiz at numbers.

You need a burning desire and determination fueled by a strong dose of passion!
