I Want My Life Back!

What is it that makes people work 50+ hours a week and come home and spend another 3-5 hours banging the keys on a key board of a computer or calling their friends and family about a network marketing opportunity? The reason is simple, people are trying to take control of their lives again. As long as we work for someone else we have no control. As long as we have a board of directors, we have no control. I was actually told that I was the highest paid person in my corporation for my position in the country. It should have made me happy, but it made my stomach curl. The reason being is I have had 2 pay cuts in the last 6 years with record profits. It was stated in a way as if I should bow down. That is not a good feeling.

Most of us (the baby boomers) want control back. We want to take time off or go on vacation whenever we want. We do not want to ask permission, like a third grader wanting to go to the bathroom. For most of us we lost control of our lives when we started our families or purchased our 1st house and began going in debt. And anyone who has ever started a family and raised kids knows one thing, they are not cheap! There comes a point when we rely on that job to pay our mortgage and bills, to pay for the childrens education and needs. Did you know the average American is only a paycheck or two away form bankruptcy? So what do we do? We begin to save and invest. We put money in our 401k and build up a stock portfolio. We move into a bigger house as our family grows. Then BAM, 911 hits. We are in shock but we recover and continue to save and invest. Then BAM, we find out that gas has just gone to $4 a gallon and that the country is bankrupt, by the way our 401ks also get absolutely crushed. Enough already. No more! We want control back.

What are our options? Start a traditional business? (who has the money or can afford to take the risk in this economy), Look for a better job? (un employment is at 9.8% but it is plausible). Not a lot of options. Then you get approached by a company that offers you control again. You have a low initial investment and it offers you the opportunity to escape the rat race while still working at your current job. And you find out that there are actually, verifiable, people making hundreds of thousands of dollars a month and they work with people who are their partners not their competitors. It is actually a business were the better your friends do the better you do. It is a business were the money is residual and you don't start over every month. A job were you could go on vacation whenever you want and you income continues to grow. That business is called network marketing and if your not familiar with it you have been living in a box. Network marketing has been around for over 70 years and has created more millionaires then any other industry. And in order to become a millionaire you do not have to have a pedigree from an ivy league school.

If you want an opportunity to take control of your life again and have more time freedom and more income, then you need to learn more abut this industry. There are over 5000 companies and over 36 million people involved in this industry today, worldwide. This could be your way out. I know it is mine! Check out One24 or my website at brucepatrick.com

2011 and Networking Income Opportunities

     You ready?  It is a brand new year and time to set all our new years resolutions.  Have you set yours yet?  How many people have set theirs as make more money or lose weight.  That is about 68% of the population by my best estimation.  Every year tens of thousands of us set our resolutions and decide that this will be the year.  This will be the year we get it right.  Get back into shape and increase that bank account 10 fold.  Have the life we have always dreamed about.

     We all start out with the best of intentions.  We really do.  But the fact of the matter is we fail or we wouldn't make the same resolutions every year.  Why do we fail.  It is the old saying "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail".

If you want to achieve your goals in 2011 you need a plan.  A plan to get healthy both physically and financially.

     In the past a lot of us have turned to network marketing to help us achieve these goals.  The reason being is that it satisfies both of our goals.  Financially, it gives us the vehicle we need to leverage our time and go after those lofty financial goals.  Physically we find that over 75% of the network marketing companies that are out there are involved in the nutrition industry.  And lets face it, most of us are lacking nutrition in our daily lives anyway.  So combining the 2 of them makes sense.

    If it makes so much sense,  why are we back right were we started.  Remember what I said about planning? 



What is your plan.  Their are literally thousands of network marketing companies that exist today. So how do you choose?  How do you determine which vehicle you are going to hitch your wagon to?  My advice is to do some research, check out several different companies.  When you find the right company you will know it.

     I have researched many, many companies.  I was involved in several until I found the one that best fit me and what I believed.  One of the things that I was looking for was something that was very affordable.  I wanted something that would affordable for everyone and that anyone on a very tight budget could get involved with.  I wanted a company that was very simple and that anyone could duplicate.  To me that is one of the most important things.  Duplication is the key to long term success.  If we can create a simple system for people to follow, that is affordable and that anyone can do, then you will have success.  If your business is built on all kinds of advanced marketing strategies and large advertising  budgets then you will have short term success but not long term success.  These are the people who need to recruit hundreds and hundreds of people to maintain their income.  They need to constantly be putting people into their program because they are creating no duplication. They don't care that 97% of their organization is failing. As long as they were selling their  tapes or cds on how great they are and how far they have come.  I wasn't interested in that kind of program or being involved with those kind of people.  Believe me they are out there and many of you know what I am talking about.  That is why when I came across One24 it was like a breath of fresh air.  The program was developed my Mark Seyforth with the intention of making it so we can all be successful.  The love hate relationship a lot of us have shared with this industry arouse out of the failure rate.  It is hard for us to share somthing with our friends and family when we know that only 3% will be successful.  But with One24 it is easy to see why it will go viral so very quickly.  The success rate will be much higher.  Check out the video for yourself and see why I believe with all my heart that One24 will be a giant in the home based business industry.  VIDEO
