Taking Control of Your Financial Future
Long gone are the days when you could count on job security seeing you through to retirement. Unemployment rates continue to rise and financial pundits are predicting that economic disaster in the U.S. is right around the corner. We are living in a Global economy where the world economic system has been set up like a game of dominos. When one country's economy fails, it affects another country, and then another country until you have what we see happening in Europe.
Many, if not most Americans, live paycheck to paycheck and are carrying mortgage and credit card debt with little or no cushion of savings in the bank. Most people are simply trading time for money, trying not to get further into debt, or trying to simply stay on par. As unemployment rates continue to rise, everyone is at risk of losing their income source. Some people will continue as they have been, and take their chances in hopes that they will be unscathed and survive an economic downfall. And some people will come to the realization that this is their opportunity to begin taking control of their financial futures. If you want a solid financial future, you need to create it, and you do that by taking charge of your income source. You need to create your own economy.
How Do You Create Your Own Economy?
According to Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, the way you create your own economy is by owning your own business. As daunting as that might sound to many people, owning and running your own business doesn't have to involve large amounts of start up capital, or hiring employees, or any of the other things associated with running a business. In fact, you can start your own business and create streams of residual income with low risk, low operating costs, no inventory, and no employees, plus gain the tax advantages of owning a company. You can work at it full time, or you can continue to work your regular job and work your business part time. You decide your hours. Yes, I'm talking about multi level marketing, otherwise known as network marketing.
Many people scoff at the idea of network marketing, but some of the best known millionaire and billionaire businessmen, are onto it. People like, Robert Kiyosaki, Richard Branson, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffet are involved in network marketing, and recommend it as the best way for people to start up a new business and build a sizeable passive income for themselves. Robert Kiyosaki calls network marketing a real-world business school for people who want to learn the real-world skills of an entrepreneur, rather than the skills of any employee. He states that network marketing teaches:
- An attitude of success
- Overcoming personal fears, doubts, and lack of confidence
- Overcoming fears of rejection
- Communication skills
- People skills
- Time-management skills
- Accountability skills
- Practical goal-setting
- Money Management skills
- Investing skills
Network marketing creates more millionaires than any other industry.
How To Choose The Company That is Best For You
There are a few things to consider in choosing the company that is best for you.
- Choose a company that has been around for at least 3 - 5 years. Most network marketing companies fail within their first two years.
- Make sure the company has a good training system set up, with duplicatable processes.
- Is there a genuine need for the product or service? You want products or services that are unique, not trendy products that won't last the test of time?
- Is the product or service something that you can really stand behind?
I recommend that you do your own research before committing to a product or company. I have researched a number of products; everything from laundry discs, skin care products, juices, weight loss systems, technology services and more. There were two companies that stood out to me. Both companies met the criteria I was looking for from a perspective of financial stability. Once I knew they were operating from a strong and stable foundation, it was their products that really had me sold...
Ride The Baby Boomer Wave
The first company that stood out to me is a company called NuCerity. I was looking for a line of products that would appeal to the biggest consumer base that economic history has seen; the Baby Boomers. And what are the Baby Boomers looking for? Health products and anti-aging products. NuCerity is the first line of anti-aging products I have come across and tested myself that actually does what it promises. The company's main product is a roll on clear breathable face mask that you apply at night before going to bed. SkinCerity can best be described as a face lift in a bottle. The results are astounding, and noticeable within days. It's a product that I can confidently stand behind, and it sells itself. That was high on my criteria list.
Ride The Technology Wave
The second company that stood out to me is a company called Talk Fusion. I like Talk fusion because it's technology. It offers services that keep up to date with what consumers want. It meets a popular demand. Video emails, video newsletters or blogs, video conferencing, live broadcasting and more. The company is strong, stable, and open to a large consumer market.
