Why I Recommend Real Estate Investing and Network Marketing To Those Who Want To Be Entrepreneurs

In a one hour movie recently released by Eric Worre, he interviewed some very well know experts. Harry Dent talked about the true level of the debt owed by the US and the number is staggering and scary. Robert Kyosaki showed the dramatic negative trends in food stamps, college graduate incomes and student loans. Most of these statistics I was aware of except for student debt which is now over $1 trillion and if you declare bankruptcy you still own student loans. So people are going into more debt to get more education. What is the result, lower paychecks than in the past.

Don’t misread this. My daughter is a doctor. She would not be a doctor without the education and the support of the student loan program. Our society needs medical professionals, scientists, teachers and other professionals who need to be qualified by our university and special education systems. However, the vast majority of people entering higher education are not seeing the likely outcome clearly and will be well served by taking a look at the economic reality of our world today.

All interviewed by Eric in this movie were in support of the message that it is harder and harder for many people to feel confident about earning a living at a level where they are not worried about their bills. The days of being able to count on a 40 hour a week job that provides an acceptable level of income for a lot of people are long gone. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace and often makes a well established business or industry obsolete. Look at what happened to the majority of book stores in the last decade. Look at the market share shift in the last decade because of companies like Apple, Google and others. Do the research on the amazing number of companies that were once very commonly known in America are out of business.

With those trends which are not very bright, people still need a place to live people need products and services. That leads me to the two industries that get my vote for where more people should be paying attention. Those are real estate investing and network marketing. Network marketing is often referred to as direct sales or multi-level marketing.

The reasons I like both of these industries the best for people thinking about being in business for themselves are:

1. Very little money is required to learn the businesses
2. There is plenty of evidence of people making good money in those industries
3. The training is outstanding and most of it is relatively low cost or free.

Let’s look at training for example. If you select the right network marketing company and sponsor, the training is amazing. In real estate it is true you do not need your own money or credit for deals. However, because of the dollar size of the transactions you are well served by being mentored by one or more people who will help you and JV with you as you get started.

Cost of entry: In real estate you can get started for about $1,000. It is better if you have $5,000 to $10,000 because there are some programs that cost money that will really help you get to a faster start. However with about $1,000 for gas and a few other supplies you can get started. I know of people who make $3-$5000 checks in their first month. Is that typical – I would say yes for the people following the directions and devoting more than 20 hours a week to the business. In Network Marketing you can get started with most companies for $250-$500. If you work hard you can begin to make money your first month. I have met people who make over $20,000 in their first three months. I don’t think that is typical.

What is the one skill you must have as an entrepreneur? In my view it is the skill of being able to get past rejection. There is one sure fire way getting past being rejected – set really high goals and be relentless on following them with the guide of a very experienced mentor and team.

Now you have my vote and why. What is yours and why. I welcome your comments.

Recession , US Default, Foreclosures….What Is The Solution

The Real Question Is What Is the Solution For You?

Stop reading the newspapers, watching TV and engaging in conversations with co-workers and others about negative news headlines. George Ross, Donald Trump’s key attorney and deal closure reminds us that most news is not credible or at least not the complete picture.  As importantly, the most immediate item that affects  us individually is what we do  for ourselves.

Wayne Allyn Root coaches his clients on implementing a success plan that is not dependent on an employer. More specifically start your own business. Wayne uses the opportunities for learning marketing and developing a network that is taught by direct sales companies or network marketing companies.  This is one  great opportunity to be your own boss, work with other successful people and not have to worry about what an employer will do.

One of the areas of my own business interests is being with an organization that coaches business owners and other interested in successful real estate investing how to move forward and achieve continually increasing performance goals.

The theme here is individual responsibility for what happens in your life. Most of us have the resources to move forward and do a lot better than we are doing today. I like the example I heard once where the question was asked “if you had the opportunity to buy a new $100,000 car for $5000 would you be able to figure out how to come up with the $5000? Most everyone said yes. Then why would you ever resist the opportunity to start your own business because you didn’t have a couple thousand dollars you need for basic infrastructure and expenses during the start up period?

Are you unemployed? Are you struggling to make ends meet? Are you unhappy with the work you do? Don’t look outside of yourself for someone to solve these or any other issue.  Do you feel you don’t have enough knowledge or education? I just finished a couple days of coaching a person who has three businesses, lives in a million dollar home with a quarter million dollar boat outside. He is a high school graduate. He figured it out. You probably know of others like him or read about them.

If you want some ideas, email me.  I also highly recommend attending Mega Partnering 4 where  you will meet incredible people . Figure out a way to buy a VIP ticket where you will have dinner with the featured speakers and business leaders attending.  Are you nervous about meeting successful people and not sure what to say  or do?  Register for my email list on this page and look for an article real soon on what I have found to be the most effective networking skills and how easy it is for anyone to follow those steps. I was taught these skills and will share them with my readers.

Bottom line: you are responsible and the only way to solve any situation you don’t prefer in your life is to develop an action plan and then take action.

Root For Success….Wayne Allyn Root Speaks On Today’s Opportunities

Wayne Allyn Root  is the leading candidate for the Presidential nomination by the Libertarian Party in 2012.  He is best known today for his energetic outspoken views on individual freedom which means he is very outspoken on the reason for the debt, unemployment, restrictions to business growth and other less than desirable situations  the US finds itself in today.

I have the honor of hosting a private monthly call with Wayne. This experience has helped me understand his passionate focus on the opportunity for individuals to become very successful in any economic environment.  This was very evident in Wayne’s response to a key question asked during a recent call that I am able to share with you. In summary, the question was about how an individual can make a difference in our society dominated by growing government and debt.  Wayne advised us to focus on the opportunities for individual success.   He said there are  more than 3,000 new millionaires every day in the US.  These people are achieving this success by taking action.

The number one action step successful people take is to start their own business. Wayne highlighted a recent article in a major national publication detailing the benefits of network marketing. I spoke of my experience coaching people developing a real estate investment business. Wayne shared a number of examples of his success starting with an idea and relentlessly pursuing the idea. He is relentlessly pursuing at path that will take him to the White House. He has never failed to achieve something he set out to do and this will be no exception.
