I went back to my traditional business for a while and made some good money. Why was that a mistake? If you have read some of the posts about MLM, Network Marketing you may have noticed the part about the one that stuck it out. While she was building her business I was running my traditional business. For most of that time, we still made the same money. Except I noticed she was working less and less than me. Both of us still making the same money. Then she was staying home with her grandson and paying cash for her new log home as it was being built.
Fast forward to today. She makes more than me in one month. No, my cash flow has not changed. I just work all week for it.
If I had worked the same amount of time in the MLM business I would be in the same spot as her. She has helped many other people to fire their bosses. Some have retired their husbands from jobs that had been sucking the like out of them.
Take a look at the MLM industry you may find something that you like.
Have a great week,

The title says it all… watch out. Home based business can be fun. But what about all the hype on the Internet and all the talk about scams. Scams come with the territory you have to do your own homework to decipher what is and what is not a scam. Here is some good examples MLM, network-marketing, multi level, build a web site and make money, stuff envelopes and make a fortune…. I could go on but I am sure you get the point.
All of the things I mentioned and more can be scams and some are just that a scam. What makes a business opportunity a scam is the people behind them. One comment I like is that “It is some kind of pyramid scheme”. Some are and they are illegal because the last group of people in always loose. But most of all the person paying the money gets nothing in return equal in value to what they are spending. All they get is the hope some else comes in behind them.
The largest legal pyramid scheme out there and most of all of us are still in it or used to be in it. Are you ready for it… it is called corporate America. Just take a look at an organizational chart showing the president on down. The person at the bottom will never make what the president makes no matter how hard they work. No matter how many people they help bring into the company.
Now let’s talk about the home based business. If you start one that requires you do all the work you make all the money. But the down side of that is, if you get hurt and cannot work you are out of business. I know I have one of them.
You say what is the answer. Well are you sitting down? It’s like a bad word for most. Are you sure you want to know? HERE It is… MLM, network-marketing, multi level. Are you shocked? I was, and then I started to learn about the industry and why some companies fold and why people start and quit. Even two famous people have said this is the way to go. Donald Trump “When Donald Trump was asked on TV what he was going to do if he was to go bankrupt once again, his answer was simple. He said that he would get into a network marketing business.” and Robert Kyosaki “The Two Essential Reasons to Join a Network Marketing Business. Reason number one is to help yourself. Reason number two is to help others. If you join for only one of these two reasons, then the system will not work for you.”
Now here is what I have learned watching people in this type of business. The ones that say “it did not work for me it is a scam.” Had bad leadership or the business was just not for them. It could have been the product was not something that they really had any interest in. I am going to tell you about two real people but not their names.
The quitter… She had every intention of building a business and went to the meetings and promoted the product. I was at one of the meetings she was at. A potential new business prospect was in the room. The group started a general conversation and the person I am referring to here spoke up and said “I cannot afford to do that the product is too expensive.” Not what you want someone to say if they are supposed to be promoting the company and product right! I could not figure out why this came out of here mouth. Cost of any product is relative to everyone. Later after I found out she had quit, and watching postings on her Facebook page I concluded she wanted to be a grandmother more than anything and spend all of her time with the grand kid/s. This is perfectly OK. Some people quit for other reasons.
The non-quitter no matter what. She grew up riding the family business truck to and from school. It was a trash hauling truck. After school she worked in the family business. Later she went to beauty school to get away from that business. Sometime later she was offered a spot in a ground floor opportunity to work with a company making bread. She absolutely said no, turned down the offer. The company later became Panera Bread. Later she was offered another opportunity to work with two women that are known around the country for their supper successful business Proactiv (the acne med). These two women SOLD proactive, later started a new company. She jumped on board and 5 years (now 2015) later, she is about to retire. She wanted to quit at first and decided to give it a shot and worked it like a business. She did not plan to get rich quick but just make enough money for he entire family to go on a vacation. Pretty nice for just wanting a few extra bucks.
Here are the two ladies talking about that business.
If you would like to know more about this company you can look at it here. http://timkaelin.myrandf.biz and the products at http://timkaelin.myrandf.com hope you enjoy the sites.
I have been in business for myself for over 25 years. I have generated over a million dollars in cash flow. Helped hundreds of people move forward in their ventures whether it be careers working for someone else or start a business. Hope this post has been helpful.
Have an awesome day,

I recently read an article on career choices. My first thought was, it would be about choosing a specific career. How that career would later not fit you. But that is not what the article was about. It actually fit me and the way I do things and the decisions I make. Choices you make effect the future of YOU. When I first started a business I was like 10 years old. I began by trading cards selling doubles of what I had.
A good friend of mine was working with me and we would insult each other just having fun. One day he insulted me and I returned with an insult that was a direct hit to his soul. The young boy tiered up and walked away. Everything I had invested in that friendship and business associate was OVER. I was and still am a strong willed person with a very strong back bone. At the time I thought, what a week little boy, glad he is out of the way. As years went on I discovered his family had several athletic and successful people. What could have been a long friendship and business success for years to come, possibly? I crushed it to nothing in one unthoughtful comment. I think about that time a lot, which was 41 years ago. I do not dwell on it mind you, but use it as a reminder to keep my thoughts and mouth under control.
As time went on I can’t say I did a good job of that. In fact I kept opening my mouth and inserting foot time after time until I was in my late teens early 20′s. I decided that I needed to pick what I wanted and go for it. So I decided it was time to find someone and get married. At the same time I was working on that, I quit school, got a GED, and went to college. This is where my career choices started to kick in.
I made sure while in school I made contact with people that were making things happen. While going to college and getting married I was running an auto repair and auto salvage business. While making more contacts. I phased out the auto repair part of the business but used car parts made me the most money. The first child was coming so I sold all the cars and parts at one time and cleaned the back yard up for the kid and swing set. Notice this was a Career move, developing a young person to be someone. After all the cars and parts were sold I was out of business.
After being married for a little while and realizing I could not work for someone else I quit my job and started a business. This time the business was inside the house out of the weather and were I could spend time with my Son.
Remember the comment I made about getting more contacts? This is where they came into play, I called them all to promote my business. I started getting more leads and call backs from people that needed my services. By learning to keep my thoughts to myself and my mouth shut, things took off. Word got around about how successful I was and driving a Lincoln Town Car. People started contacting me to work with me, or help them in some way. I had fortune 500 companies calling me and I was not yet 30 years old. Now much older I have learned many lessons and have had the privilege to teach others.
