Daily I meet people who either have a career they are less than 110% passionate about, often stressed and unfulfilled because of the time taken away from their families or doing what they love most, OR they are passionate about their profession, yet not earning the income potential that would provide the Financial and Time Freedom desired.

I have found a way to continue doing the work I love, while growing an escalating monthly residual income for years to come. It’s a home-based business opportunity with one of the Fastest Growing companies in North America, growing faster than e-Bay, marketing a highly consumable, highly emotional product that is truly changing lives in a reputable and exciting industry called Network Marketing.

I invite you to view my website:

My purpose in writing this is not to recruit or sell you anything. My purpose is to EDUCATE you on Network Marketing, a vehicle that is positively enhancing my life, the people I care about, and thousands of individuals worldwide – healthwise and financially too!

Many of you are already involved in Network Marketing to some degree or learning about this natural and effective means of people sharing a good product, word-of-mouth marketing, while others have a disbelief this industry is reputable, much less a viable way to earn a living. Or better yet, create a fortune enabling you to do what you TRULY LOVE.

I was first introduced to this industry at 18 years of age. I saw an incredible opportunity to change my life through marketing water purification filters. I knew the world needed this product, I knew word-of-mouth marketing was effective, yet I didn’t believe deep enough in myself to have the confidence to maintain the course it would take to introduce people to this fabulous product and business opportunity. I was scared to talk to people, look them in the eye and stand up for my belief. I took out a loan to purchase inventory, dabbled a bit, received some “No’s”, and then gave up.

Although I feel discomfort at times, I’m no longer scared to share what I absolutely believe will make a difference in your life and people you care about, if you wish to make a difference. If you are happy doing what you are doing and earning what you are earning, then awesome! If you want more time freedom to do what you love….more money to give back in a bigger way….a desire to reach more people and impact their lives healthwise and financially…then I invite you to read on!

Network Marketing is the best kept secret in the business world today. It is quickly being embraced by leaders like Warren Buffett, the richest man in the world (I believe he still is today), who purchased The Pampered Chef, a Network Marketing company because he saw the power in Networks.

Two of the world’s largest cosmetic companies, Avon and Mary Kay, are Network Marketing companies. Do you recognize products like Aloe Vera, Grape Seed Extract, Ginseng, and Ginkgo Biloba? All of these powerful botanicals were introduced to the world through Network Marketing.

What Do Business Experts say about Network Marketing?

“Network marketing has proven itself to be a viable and rewarding source of income….there have been some remarkable examples of success.” – Donald Trump, Why We Want You to be Rich

“If you really want to learn how to be rich, you must begin to know and understand the power found in networks. The richest people in the world build networks.” – Robert Kiyosaki, speaking about network marketing

“People need network marketing…It has carved out the essence or best part of retailing-educating people about products and services that will improve their lives and that they don’t yet know exist. That’s what network marketing is really about.” – Paul Zane Pilzer, economist and author of Unlimited Wealth

What is unique about having a home-based business in Network Marketing is the residual nature of the income. In my client practice, I charge money for each consultation. In a Network Marketing business, you get paid on product sold as well as repeat sales the following month. Plus, you earn a percentage on products sold to people they refer.

Because I understand the nature of employment and working for wages, and because I have experienced the struggles of establishing a business, working for an hourly rate or consultation fee, or getting paid on the completion of a project only to begin looking for the next, I feel strongly in my heart to dispel any beliefs that Networking Marketing, also known as Direct Marketing or Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) is anything but FABULOUS, DYNAMIC & the REAL DEAL!

What is Network Marketing?

In simplicity, Network Marketing is word-of-mouth marketing, people talking to people. In the same way you would recommend a great movie or excellent restaurant to a friend, with Network Marketing the company pays you a ‘thank you’ commission for every referral that purchases the product. How often do you receive cheques in the mail from a film production company or restaurant owner?

Instead of paying thousands or millions of dollars in traditional distribution and advertising (ads, radio, magazines, newspapers, commercials, internet) to put a product on the store shelves and hope it’s the best decision to attract customers, a Network Marketing company has independent distributors to educate people about an innovative product new to market. In essence, the company’s advertising budget is paid out to the people who educate and spread the news.

Why consider Network Marketing?

There is a wealth of reasons to start a home-based business in Network Marketing versus traditional business. Too numerous to list them all, I’m highlighting a few key reasons:

No risk, Low start-up cost, No inventory
Tax write offs – including a portion of your personal consumption
Unlimited earning potential
You own the business you build
Be at home with your children
Get paid for telling people about a product and business opportunity you love
Choose the people you want to work and travel with
Make a difference in other people’s lives and feel great
Have FUN !!!

Network Marketing is a recession-proof industry, a way to create financial & time freedom to do more of what you love – time with family, take longer vacations, give back more time or money to your favourite organization, or whatever your heart will dream up.

An interesting fact, The Direct Selling Association (DSA) reported that the Network Marketing industry generated $30 Billion in annual sales during 2005 in the United States alone. Love it or not, Network Marketing is a viable economic choice that’s here to stay.

Who can start a Network Marketing home-based business?

Anybody! A Networking Marketing business is not for everyone, though anyone can build it! Stay-at-home parents, lawyers, doctors, retired couples, students, ages 18 – 108.

Begin part-time, continuing your current profession as your residual income increases each month, until it replaces and exceeds your current wages. An extra $500 – $1000 can make a difference in most family’s life.

If you treat it like a business, you can change your family’s life in 3-5 years earning an extra $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 per month or more. The great thing is YOU decide how much you want to earn and if you want to go full-time. Remember, this is escalating residual income and it’s absolutely different than wages.

How to decide which Network Marketing company to join?

Not all Network Marketing companies are equal. To succeed, you need to have solid factors in place including proven integral leadership, a highly consumable and highly emotional innovative product, and a lucrative compensation plan that works for everyone and is easy to understand. There are additional factors to consider too.

The company I am working with is one of the Fastest Growing companies in North America of both traditional and Network Marketing companies, growing faster than e-Bay, projected to be in the top ten of all companies in the history of the world. The company sold in their first year more than Pepsi Cola did in their 34th year, and more in their 2nd year than it took IBM 30 years to reach.

To succeed in the business aspect, you truly need to care about other people and discover what is best for them. I honestly believe long term success is in relationship building and as such is Number One on my list. I love this company and am extremely thankful to Jen Plaza, my client and friend who introduced this life-enhancing opportunity to me.

Joy, Love & Abundance!
