If we don’t try, we will never know what we are capable of, or what we might accomplish. To me, ACN is a very simple concept, a very powerful proposition, and one that is well suited for the current economic and social trends in our society and the world of global commerce. Here are my top 10 reasons why the ACN Opportunity makes sense and how it can lead us to accomplishments, both personally and professionally, that we never even knew were possible.
1. Nearly everyone uses a cell phone, a computer and the Internet, watches television, and uses gas and electricity on a daily basis. These services have become an almost automatic and essential part of modern living. We do not have to create awareness or demand for these products and services.
2. Imagine doing a task once, building an organization with customers, and as long as they continue to use the services and pay their monthly bills, you receive compensation for having obtained them as customers. Residual income that can grow is better than linear, flat, or fixed income. That is called residual income.
3. Most everyone can use or would like to have extra monthly income, especially if they do not have to disrupt their existing occupation or schedule to obtain it.
4. The compound effect of duplication and multiplication makes time and talent your friends, not your enemies or competition. It helps magnify your opportunities and chances of success rather than diminishing them.
5. Having access to a wealth of personal development resources, which ACN provides, gives you the opportunity to become a more powerful and productive person in all areas of your life. It can make you more efficient, effective, decisive, goal-oriented, self-directed or motivated, and achieve greater success and fulfillment in life. It can help you have more influence or make a greater contribution with your time and talents.
6. Meeting many interesting new people, making new friends and acquaintances, working together, sharing the same purpose and objective, creating a sense of brotherhood and positive energy, sharing life and dreams together, having fun and creating fond memories, learning and benefitting from the examples and experience of others makes for a more rewarding, fulfilling, and enjoyable life experience.
7. ACN is the largest direct-sales company of telecom and energy services in the world, with many successful and high-quality leaders in its ranks.
8. For a one-time initial fee of $499 to get started in business, an independent business owner is provided with a personalized, hosted and maintained website that is state-of-the-art, and offers all the benefits and advantages of an online store. ACN offers many world-class products and materials or tools to help one succeed as if he were a large organization. Compare this low entry fee to the high price of most franchise opportunities, or even the annual business and license fees to conduct business in most places, and what you get in return for that expense, and you must agree that this is a small and negligible investment by comparison.
9. The freedom and flexibility to work from your own home, as little or as much as you want, how you want, when you want, where you want, why you want, with who you want is a powerful business proposition to consider. To be your own boss and set your own schedule, your own goals, plans and actions, and to be accountable for yourself, and be compensated accordingly. Success in ACN is entirely up to you – if you work hard, your success will be measured by your efforts.
10. Everyone knows 20, 50, 100 or more family, friends, acquaintances, and contacts, and can continually add to that number, meeting new people and making new associations – especially if he has something of merit or value to share with them when he does. One never knows what the outcome or destiny of a simple question will be. If you never ask, the answer is always, “No”. But if you do, it could be a powerful, “Yes!”
When you become successful in this business you will be more credible, and others will listen to you more easily. You will have the satisfaction of showing many of the doubters your achievement, and they will admire your success and accomplishment. But guess what? They will still have to start where you began, and take the time it took you to get where you are. You will just be that much further ahead, and be enjoying the benefits and rewards sooner than they will. You will have the success you desire and live your dreams. Many others have and already are. It’s just a matter of adding your name to that list, and your presence to that Circle of Champions.
