Who Is Your Choice?

This is a little off subject but that okay because this is my site (I can do what I want) but this is a fight that I am going to attend on Sat. night (at a local pub). These are two mixed martial arts fighters that will definately put on a clinic on how to survive in the UFC. This is the most anticipated fight of the year..... I am personally going with Chuck Liddell in the 3rd round. We'll see!

Don't Forget Your Food Banks

This time of year is fun but for some the sad reality sets in that there might not be presents for the kids this Christmas or worse yet there is no food on the table. Please remember to donate food and toys to your local food banks. Check your radio stations if you are not sure where to donate as they have ongoing food drives etc in many locations all over town. This applies across the board in Canada and the US. Also please note that these donations are not only required during the holiday season but food banks run out of food very rapidly and require donations ALL YEAR.

"Oh I'm SO embarrassed!" she cried...

I think this is a great post by Kim Klaver. No wonder most uninformed people have a negative opinion about network marketing. There is too much emphasis on making "$10000/month and anyone can do it" most people think they have to only sponsor (recruit) people. That is not the case and that is not how to build a long term business. YOU MUST HAVE A CUSTOMER BASE like any other company in this world. DUH.... is that so hard for people to understand. Anyway read this....

"Oh I'm SO embarrassed!" she cried...
During a recent class, one gal, Trudy, said she got into the business thinking that this'd be a great way to make $10,000/mo. Afterall, she'd been a professional accountant for 20 years...why couldn't she do this? Only it wasn't happening very fast, and she'd been at it for three years now, she said.So we did a quick exercise...

Snow In Vancouver?!

Well we seem to be getting a dump of snow early this season. For anyone that thinks that we usually get snow here in Vancouver I am proud to say we don't normally get snow and if we ever do it's usually in January and only last for a couple of days. This is unexpected and I hope it goes away soon! I must say I would rather have a little snow and it stay sunny than the torrential rains we have been having.

Why We Seek The Best Nutritionals?

Need I say more? Well I will say a litttle more. Why is it that we seek better nutrition and quality supplements (so we don't have to look like Mr. Bean)? No besides plastic surgery there isn't much hope for him! That aside there are niche groups of people that care about their health and want the best healthy aging products on the market. So if you are one of those "health fanatics" then you may want to consider buying from a network marketing company and not a big supplement chain of companies or the local drugstore. Note- most (not all) network marketing companies have superior products. Due you homework and find the ones that suit your needs.

Unigen Pens 100 Year Plan

Thanks to Dave Stone at MLM Today for this post. Dave Stone is a highly regarded Network Marketing Professional with a straight forward approach (no hype)

Unigen Pharmaceuticals is taking strategic planning to ambitious new heights with a 100-year business plan, which is the rationale behind the botanical ingredient company's new hires and internal shuffling of late.Based in Lacey, Washington and in Korea, Unigen studies plant extracts at the gene level in order to gain an understanding as to how they affect gene expression. The company is dedicated to the discovery of botanically derived therapeutic compounds for use in nutraceutical, functional food, cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products.
As part of the lengthy process of unleashing botanical ingredients through its research and development pipeline, Unigen is investing heavily in human capital in anticipation of a century down the road – when it foresees accelerated convergence of the nutraceutical and cosmetics industries. read the full article

No Promises. No Problems.

How's this for a fix for all the bad press and image problems that make it so hard to do the business for everyone...In response to the post, "I know who's giving us the bad rap" reader Craig Davis suggested we have a new mantra: "make no promises, makes no problems."

Last Minute Halloween Costume!

Okay so my wife,brother and I are going to aHalloween party at a local pub the problem is that it is last minute "literally". I had costumes from previous years but I didn't feel like dressing up and I just wanted something simple. I found a potty seat in the closet( don't worry it was new and never used) and within a few minutes I had my costume. I hot glued the seat onto an old touque (ski cap) as Americans call them. Made a little reference From Seinfeld "the assman"

and ......It was an absolute hit. Everyone loved it and of course you can imagine the comments!

Do You Contact People You Work With?

This is a tough decision and probably depends on the type of work you do and the people around you. As a rule I don't think it's a good idea unless its away from work or at lunch and that may depend on the people you are with. So poses a few questions then:
Do you email the people you work with while at work about your business?
Is it better to email from home on your time?
It is more acceptable to present only your product to them at work?
Do you directly ask them for a referral for your XYZ product without directly asking them if they would be interested?

Pumpkin Patch Success?

The pumpkin patch was fun there was just a sea of pumpkins. As far as getting a big one.... I think we should have gone to look for one about a week ago because they were pretty picked over. It was a perfect day to go but a little muddy in places (my 2 year old found out). All in all a great day I think everyone should consider buying direct from a pumpkin patch near you vs a Safeway, Walgreens etc.... support local farms!

The Pumpkin Patch

Family outing today. This morning we are heading to the pumpkin patch to pickup some pumpkins. I will post about the huge ones we find (I hope)! I think they have a hay ride so it should be fun!

Remember To Laugh

We all have busy lives full of stress and sometimes barely have time to relax and reflect on the days or weeks events. If you are one of those people, do yourself a favor and take some time to laugh. Find something funny on the net with your wife/ partner, or son or daughter and laugh...

Another thing to try is just sit and stare at each other and try not to laugh (just like when you were a kid) you'll be surprised at how much you will laugh! My wife and I have been laughing quite a bit lately and it makes us feel better and more relaxed. Go TRY IT NOW!

Xango And The FDA

Looks like bad news...

XanGo, maker of an exotic mangosteen juice, claims to be the fastest-growing home-based seller of dietary supplements in history, going so far as to call itself the "iPod of the wellness revolution." Of course, Apple never peddled its hot-selling device by saying it prevents cancer. According to the Food and Drug Administration, that's exactly what XanGo is doing in promotional brochures, violating U.S. law in the process.

Is there a lesson?Yeah... don't make claims that are not FDA approved even if some products help a specific problem. It's all in the words you use....bestbehealthy

Is Network Marketing Just A Scam?

There's a huge difference between network marketing and pyramid schemes. Learn the truth here.

Q: Some friends continue to try to recruit me into network marketing deals that seem like some type of money game or pyramid. Other friends tell me they're illegal and I'll get into trouble. How do I know what's legal and legitimate?
A: To help you understand what network marketing is, I must first explain what it isn't. First, network marketing isn't a pyramid scheme. Pyramids are programs similar to chain letters where people just invest money based on the promise that other people will put in money that will filtrate back to them and somehow, they'll get rich. A pyramid is strictly a money game and has no basis in real commerce. Normally, there's no product involved at all, just money changing hands. Modern-day pyramids may have a product, but it's clearly there just to disguise the money game.
Network marketing is a legitimate business. First, it's based on providing people with real, legitimate products they need and want at a fair price. While some people do make a lot of money through network marketing, their financial benefit is always the result of their own dedicated efforts in building an organization that sells real products and services.

New Product Release!

If you suffer from joint discomfort please read!

Power and strength from science, with the sweet taste of nature.
RegeniCARE® is not and never has been your ordinary run-of-the-mill joint health product. It contains Protectin™, a powerful compound that effectively combines the best of traditional herbs together with glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, causing them to work in synergy to aid in renewing connective tissue and restoring normal cell growth and development. That’s the best of science at work.
But if you’re already taking RegeniCARE®, we don’t need to tell you it works, you know it does! And when you want to continue to nurture and protect joint health, you really only have one choice, RegeniCARE®.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce that we have created new Raspberry-flavored RegeniCARE®, in addition to the original, Lemon flavor. It’s the very same product, now in two flavors. So you do have a choice, Raspberry or Lemon!
And of course you can rest easy that as usual, we looked to nature when creating this great new product. The new raspberry color is completely natural and sourced from beet powder, and the fresh raspberry flavor comes from natural raspberry powder. Absolutely no artificial flavors or colors were used—and the proof is in the taste!
So if you love RegeniCARE® but would prefer a smooth berry flavor, this is the product for you. And if you love the lemon flavor but think variety is indeed a sweet part of life, then the new product is for you, also.
RegeniCARE® Raspberry is now available in the U.S. and will be available in Canada very shortly. Please note that we are releasing the product while we are still in our initial production run. We expect that we have enough in inventory to sustain sales, but there could be brief periods where we run out temporarily.

MLM Network Marketing Blog- Univera LifeSciences Donates $1 Million

MLM - Network Marketing Blog : Univera LifeSciences Donates $1 Million:
"Univera LifeSciences, the world’s leading healthy- aging relationship marketing company, celebrated its 7th annual convention in Las Vegas this past weekend with three significant announcements.Univera Charitable Effort LaunchedAffirming its business model focus on world class products combined with community service, the company announced the launch of Univera Serve First, a non-profit charity dedicated to eradicating malnutrition in America. The charity’s first program, seeded with $1 million of product contribution from Univera, and matched by over $91,000 in cash raised at convention from Univera Associates, is delivering Ageless Essentials™ – a nutritional meal-replacement drink - to impoverished elementary school children in rural Mississippi. The program is administered by Vitamin Angels, a non-profit, non-sectarian organization created in 1994 to fight malnutrition around the world."


Why Network With Others?

Now here is a question that really shouldn’t make you think too hard. Why? Well if you want your business to grow you must network and become friendly with other people you may not have normally talked to . Even if you don’t click with that person there is a chance that they may refer you to someone that you might have more in common with. When you meet that person you will know within a few minutes if you “click” with them or not. Don’t misunderstand me I don’t mean go out and hound people and act desperate, but be genuine in your discussion and from there you will make good friends with some people and also start to build a network or community of “possibilities”. The beauty of networking is that magical word called
Referral Marketing or word of mouth.

This is a little off subject but my wife and I watch this great show and I have the feeling that tonight Patrice or Zayra will be leaving. I have narrowed my choices down to Ryan or Dilana but I have a feeling they will pick a guy.

Univera LifeSciences(Oasis) Magazine Exposure!

I have not yet picked up this information but according to MLMblog the company that I work with Univera LifeSciences (Oasis LifeSciences) is featured in "Your Business At Home" magazine and is a fantastic article. It' s available at Barnes and Noble. I will have to search for it here in Vancouver, BC. I'm not sure if it's available here or not?

How Do You Juggle Your Home Business and Family Life?

This is an interesting question especially for people (like me) because I try and spend most of my time with family and I know it makes it difficult to build a business. Where do you draw the line and keep that balance. After working full time at your traditional job when is there time and how do you keep things in check? I would love to hear your story....

Happy 4th of July!

I am posting this now. I get the best of both worlds because I am Canadian (Canada day was July 1st) and my wife is American so we can celebrate the 4th of July too. Sweet EH! (I had to add that) All the best to ya'll.

Happy Canada Day!

I know I am a bite late but I was busy on the weekend. Happy Canada Day to everyone! Most people take today (Monday) off anyway.

Correct Your Diet or Suffer....

First of all I am not trying to poke fun at obese people and I know I may get some negative feedback but come on let's try eating a better diet people! The fast food consumption of Americans and Canadians is staggering and childhood obesity is on the rise. If we don't start educating our children and setting the example at a young age your child may be the one sitting on the right (I agree, the one on the left could be a plumber). Seriously start eating better. There are some great natural products that can help us and our children!

Have You Visited Kim Klaver's Sites?

Before you do anything else go and visit Kim Klaver's sites and read, read, read. She is an industry leader in marketing and "Doing the right thing". We all want to make Network Marketing an opportunity that is welcomed..... we do this by keeping it real and being honest.

How Well Do You Know Your Product?

I was thinking about this and found that there is always something more we can learn about the products we market even if we think we know everything about them (I am not claiming that I do by the way). Put yourself in the position of a potential customer or business partner and think of questions they might ask you. Gain knowledge about the ingredients and how they make a difference.
Explain how you feel the product has helped you personally.MLM CANADA

Customer Service

Treating a customer properly is more important than making that big sale. I believe that customer service should be the number one priority in any business including MLM. Let's face it, if a customer has a bad experience they may not come back to you and in turn you will lose any referrals from them. Here is something that bothers me and I hope you can relate: Have you ever walked into a store (any store) and the person behind the counter is on the phone and they know you walked in and continue their conversation (which is fine) BUT they don't look at you or even acknowledge to you that they will be with you in a moment. This turns me off and may result in them losing a small trickle of business from me and any referrals.

Remember, customer service shouldn't become a hassle for you. If it is you're in the wrong business!

Secret Ingredient to Reduce Stress

Serenix, a proprietary natural extract from an active agent in young corn leaves that helps reduce stress and maintain a positive outlook. It is said that it helps to reduce "roller coaster emotions." Does anyone else feel they are riding the coaster from time to time ?

YOU Decide What YOU Need For YOUR Business

When anyone gets started in a Network Marketing business be aware of the hidden costs that may not be mentioned up front. Although some of these "tools" will be beneficial to your business make sure you are the one that decides what tools you want to incorporate into your business (if any). Don't be forced into purchasing things you don't need! Remember, you don't need every tape, book and go to every seminar there is. Your business should not be built on lining the pockets of "Kingpins" that profit tremendously from you being misled.

Build your business by 1)retailing product (yes, that means a customer base)
2)register associates and help them do the same

Did I mention that before you even get started in a business make sure that you have an exceptional product that is the highest of quality

Good Luck!

Present With Honesty

The MLM or Network Marketing industry has been plagued with unethical business practices for decades now and it's time to change the perceived image and It starts with us. Think about how you present your information. Are you being deceptive and If so why are you? Tell it like it is and don't hide anything. I get tired of reading about hype and how you can make $10 000 in residual income in the next 2 weeks, yada, yada, yada. This company is ground floor, awesome opportunity, we're gonna be rich, blah, blah, blah. I'm tired of this bullshit.

In order to present your company you had better do your homework before even getting involved with a network marketing company.

1) Make sure you do your due diligence on the company. Are they reputable? Are they growing and have significant financial backing? Who are the "brass" behind the company.

2)This is absolutely essential. The product must be GREAT or don't bother. The product is to solve a problem or exceed the expectations of the consumer. This is KEY

3)Compensation plan- is there a fair payout. Some of the best plans are unilevel with depth bonuses. There should be different options to get started and it shouldn't cost thousands.

Remember you shouldn't have to go into debt to get started!

Back to presenting- tell someone that you are marketing your specific product and what it has done for you. If the product is good then you should have wonderful results to share. don't be deceptive and lie it will only bite your ass in the end.

If someone asks is it MLM tell them yes it is. Then explain to them about the company you work with and why they are so great. (they better be great)

Turn Your Competitors Into Your Allies

Five ways to increase sales by forging competitive alliances by Kim Gordon-

Some marketing pundits will tell you that your competitors are "the enemy." But those who think you have to "kill or be killed" to excel in business are on the entirely wrong track. Marketing never needs to be a blood sport. See the full article here

We can all benefit if we team up with the right competitors that can compliment our products

Have You Been Approached?

I'm wondering if you have been approached and presented a business opportunity. If you comment please include: the company, how the person approached and presented, where, etc....
Was it a pleasant experience or did it turn you right off?

Dear Mommy

You may be wondering why this is posted here but if you are a parent then I think you will know why. Enjoy!

Dear Mommy & Daddy,

I come to you, a small immature being with my own style and personality. I am yours for only a short time. ENJOY ME!

1) Please take time to find out who I am, how I differ from you and how much I can bring to you.

2) Please feed me when I am hungry. I never knew hunger when I was inside you, and clocks and time mean little to me.

3) Please hold, cuddle, kiss, touch, stroke and sing to me. I was always held closely inside of you and was never alone before.

4) Please don’t be disappointed when I am not the perfect baby that you expected, nor disappointed with yourselves that you are not the perfect parents.

5) Please try not to expect too much from me as your newborn baby, or too much from yourselves as parents. Give us both six weeks as a birthday present – six weeks for me to grow, develop, mature and become more stable and predictable, and six weeks for you to rest and relax and allow your body to get back to normal.

6) Please forgive me if I cry a lot. Bear with me and in a short time as I mature I will spend less and less time crying and more time socializing.

7) Please watch me carefully and I can tell you those things which soothe, console and please me. I am not a tyrant who was sent to make your life miserable but the only way I can tell you that I am not happy is with my crying.

8) Please remember that I am resilient and can withstand the many natural mistakes you will make with me. As long as you make them with love, you cannot ruin me.

9) Please take care of yourself and eat a balanced diet, rest and exercise so that when we are together you have the health and strength to take care of me.

10) Please take care of your relationship with each other, for what good is a family bonding if there is no family to bond?

Although I may have turned your life upside down, please realize that things will be back to normal before long.

Thank you,
Your baby/babies

Kids and Nutrition

What is it about kids and not wanting to eat the foods that we know are good for them. Stop and think for a minute. What were we like growing up? Did we eat all the healthy foods that our parents told us to eat? Not likely....in fact many of us probably tried tricks like rolling peas onto the floor for our pet "the vacuum" because he eats anything. Or perhaps you tried slipping brussel sprouts into your pocket until you went outside to play. Don't sweat it but also set the example for them. Are you eating the kinds of food you should be. Think about it.... more at a later date......

Have You Been An MLM Sheep?

Many, many people in MLM or network marketing have been "One of the Sheep" and been burned by it and in some cases it has ruined their lives. Please share your experience either good or bad..... MLM Canada

I could use some help from everyone out there. I am trying to get exposure to my blog. Does any one else feel that they are just writing to themselves? Any tips would be appreciated.

1) Increase energy

3) increase mental clarity
4) increase joint comfort and flexibility

To top it off I will send the first 10 people that respond a free sample of Ageless Xtra.
This product has a 100% customer satisfaction for life.

A Product that works

Millions of people try numerous products over the years to help relieve pain associated with join stiffness and pain and find that there are negative side effects. I personally have tried a number of them to help ease my back pain and nothing seems to work very well until I started taking a natural product called Regenicare. I must say that it works very well for me. I have no discomfort and my mobility has returned. It might be worth trying. It has a number of fairly common ingredients that many other products have but what really sets Regenicare apart is an ingredient called Protectin which aids in reducing discomfort, reducing stiffness, improve physical functions and increase ease of motion.

Why Network Marketing?

So many people get involved with an MLM or (Network Marketing) company with the intention of making millions in a 2-5 year plan. Have you ever heard this before? Well forget it. What you can do though is create a nice nest egg for retirement or just make a some extra money to make life more enjoyable. Here is why you may considering becoming an associate:

1. The opportunity to own and operate your own business with very little start up costs.
2. The opportunity to help others start their own business.

When all things are considered, Network Marketing is one of the most viable business concepts for those that wish to enter the world of small business.
