Work at Home Income: What About A Network Marketing Business

The way you earn your living has a lot to do with your success. Most people do not enjoy working 9 to 5, commuting, and having a boss breathing down their neck. Some people are also weary of someone else determining how much they can make in terms of their income. That’s why work at home income is ideal. Whatever their age, people aspire to grow, apply their skills in a creative way and making a contribution to society. If we think about it, we can choose between having a traditional job and being an entrepreneur. Of course, although being your own boss sounds very exciting, not everyone has the skills and stamina to be a successful entrepreneur in the regular business arena. That’s why I think network marketing is a great alternative. An internet network marketing business is a great way to earn a living in this economy. Being able to avoid long commutes and work from home, being able to save on gas and car maintenance are facts that are in favor of internet network marketing. Also on the positive side is being your own boss and having control of your schedule.

Network marketing is a great option for the following prospects:

- The baby Boomer who wants to get out of the rat race and find an occupation that will allow him or her to apply their experience and contribute to the development of others like them.

- The stay at home Mom who wants to have a flexible schedule and spend more time with their children.

- The senior citizen who wants to stay active, keep growing and complement their social security benefits.

Of course there are many other types of people who may want to get involved in network marketing, but I thought I would mention these three groups first.

Here is a summary of other network marketing benefits:

- Opportunity to have your own business, being your own boss, but having a system provided.
- Opportunity to apply or develop different skills such as internet marketing or leadership skills.
- Opportunity to have great tax advantages as a small business owner.

Of course, in addition to your level of experience and skills, network marketing success will depend on your mindset. Being persistent and consistent are two qualities that are essential for your success. Like any business, a network marketing enterprise has to be developed: it is not a “get rich quick scheme”. But with a plan and the right attitude, the likelihood of success is very high.

Experience as a Lifebushido Triangle Member

In January 2012, I worked as a Lifebushido Triangle member. The name of my Triangle is Seikou (which means Success in Japanese). I thought that you might be interested in my experience since this innovative company is all about being successful by focusing on your unique talents. Lifebushido motto is "If you focus your energy on what you love to do and what you do best anything is possible".

The hiring process at Lifebushido is very unique. In 2011, the company had over 6,000 job inquiries, about 1.700 applications, hired about 300 people and on average has 100 people actively working for it.

To increase an applicant's chances of being hired, Lifebushido encourages applicants to join a Triangle composed of a group of 3 or more people who work together for 30 days on various tasks before being officially hired.

During the first 10 days, team members learn about each other and about themselves by answering questions on their values, their goals, what they want their legacy to be, etc. I found those series of questions challenging as I had to go deep within myself to find the answers. Sharing my thoughts with my fellow team members was sometimes uncomfortable as I had to be honest about my strengths, my weaknesses and my likes and dislikes. Steve Kantor, the company's president, strongly believes that people who write clear goals achieve greater success. So by subscribing to Goalbushido , I got a series of e-mails that helped me set my annual as well as monthly goals. Writing down my goals for the different areas of my life as recommended (work, health, financial, spiritual) was a great exercise as it allowed me to focus on what I want to achieve in 2012.

After the 10 days of discovery, we were finally allowed to tackle billable tasks. These tasks had to be done individually although we still worked also as a group. My team mates' support was invaluable as I got feedback on how I was completing the various tasks and even got help with my graphics, an area where I still need improvement. The various tasks that had to be done, help me sharpen my skills in marketing (we had to write a concept paper on how to present Lifebushido's Virtual MBA Internship Program in order to recruit top MBA students) and in communication (we had to send e-mails to top real estate agents to offer our services). I found the experience of working with a group challenging in a useful way. Wanting to keep up with my fellow team members motivated me to work at a steady pace even during the weekend and holidays. Now I value the experience of working as a team member.

During my undergraduate studies as an Economics major, I considered pursuing an MBA but my life path took me in another direction. My dream was to have my own business. I'm sure that if I had had the opportunity to do a Lifebushido Virtual MBA Internship, I would be a wildly successful entrepreneur now. I guess I will have to fulfill my dream indirectly by working with Lifebushido.

If you are looking for a fun, challenging part-time position from home, do consider Lifebushido.

5 Principles for a Successful Life

Can there be only 5 principles for a successful life?

The former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and his daughter Jackie Gingrich Cushman seem to think so.

Here are the five principles:

1. Dream Big. You have to keep your dreams alive and have faith that you can achieve them. There will be obstacles of course, but they are there to test your resolve. You have to know deep inside that you can achieve your dreams. Since it takes the same amount of energy to dream big or small, you may as well dream big.

2. Work Hard. Working hard gives you an incredible amount of energy and the knowledge that you are progressing in a steady manner. Persistence of course is essential.
“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish”. John Quincy Adams, The sixth President of the United States

By working hard, you will discover that the journey stops being a burden and is rather a path of transformation to fulfill your dreams. The vision of your dream in your mind becomes so focused that the hard work is no longer hard.

“They who lack talent expect things to happen without efforts. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than insufficient application. At the core of every tru talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized”. Eric Hoffer

3. Learn Every Day. You have to learn constantly in order to progress. Learning every day keeps you on the path to success. It allows you to not give up and find solutions to your problems at the right moment.

4. Enjoy Life. The authors draw from ancient philosophers like Aristotle, who said "Happiness depends upon ourselves" and modern scientific studies to show that successful people work hard to achieve their dreams and complement that hard work with a capacity to "really enjoy the journey you're on." Rush Limbaugh advises "There should be no guilt in the pursuit of happiness and the enjoyment of life."

5. Be True to Yourself. In order to be successful, you have to know yourself well in order to bypass your weaknesses and put your strength in display. Being true to yourself allows you to be self-confident and unstoppable.

In today's world of instant messaging and immediate gratification, we often forget that some things take time, practice, and patience to achieve. Aristotle had it right when he said: “We are what we repeatedly do.

Principles of Success: What Is The Main Principles?

Principles Of Success: What Is The Main Principle Of Success?

The word success has many meanings. It can mean having a lot of money, or having a successful career and family, or simply being happy all the time, etc. But what is the underlying cause of our wishes, what could be the main principle of success? In this article I present what this main principle might be.

“The seat of power is the inner self”
“Power is a double-edged sword. Ego power seeks to control and dominate. Real power comes out of the power of love”. Deepak Chopra

The real power to achieve our wishes and goals in life is internal. When we see the world surrounded in the light of love, we live without fear, in “unshakable peace.

To get love, we must first give it. That is a universal law. And to love another, we must love ourselves. Very often our love is hidden behind layers of anger, selfishness and fear.

Self-acceptance then is the key.

However in order to come to a point where we accept ourselves totally, we have to uncover our shadow, the hidden self.

When we look closely inside ourselves, we find that there are many personalities competing for the use of our mind and body. There are also the many roles we identify with – being a parent, a male, a female, a sister, a brother, a lawyer, a doctor, an American, etc. “Each of these roles has staked a claim within us battling each other to have the upper hand.” Happiness is merely a state of non-conflict between all these personalities.

If you remember, when we are a baby, we are in a state of total acceptance. As we grow up, we learn to hold onto negative energies because of society's norms. These negative energies build up in our subconscious and are responsible for our anger, frustrations and denials.

To diffuse all these negative energies, we have to work on recognizing our different sub-personalities for instance the unloved child, the frustrated adolescent, etc, and release the negative energies that may be still attached to them. The most powerful way of releasing old energies is to simply acknowledge that they are there. Doing a simple acknowledgment overcomes any sort of denial that contributes to held energies being trapped inside of us. And an acknowledgment is a form of self-acceptance.

Overcoming our shadow self is a very important principle of success because when it's ignored, it is at the root of many frustrations and failures.

Can You Make Money Online? Discover a Tool for Success

Can You Really Make Money Online? Discover The Right Path

Can you really make money online? This is a question that a lot of people are asking themselves. There are so many scams on the Internet that people are of course skeptical. In this article I will suggest a legitimate way to make money online with minimum investment.

It is estimated that there are 1,733 million Internet users online at any given time, so having a business online is the right decision.

However, competition is stiff and you will have to choose the right path and have the right mindset in order to be successful at making money online.

First, I will talk about finding the right path.

I have tried several ways to make money online. Filling out surveys for instance was one of them. But I was not very successful as finding enough surveys to make a decent income turned out to be very difficult. However what worked was affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing or promoting other people's products is a relatively easy way to start and it costs very little money. However because of the fierce competition it's better to follow some kind of training in order to be on the right track.

You will have to learn the following:

1)How to do keyword research to find the keywords with the most traffic and less competition.
2)How to find a lucrative niche with less competition
3)How to build a list of subscribers (this is very important as all professional Internet marketers know that the money is in the list).
4)How to drive traffic to your website or blog.

As you see, there are a few key things that you have to become good at in order to start making money on the Internet.

Of course, you can start on your own as there are lots of free e-book on the internet. However I would not advise you to follow that route. If you do, you may end up learning a lot but you will also loose a lot of time making mistakes that you could have avoided with the right guidance.

Believe me it's worth investing some money to have the right training. And it doesn't have to be too expensive. You will quickly realize that it was worth it when you see that you can get guidance on how to structure your business, which tools to use in order to save time and money and how invaluable having some kind of support is while you are learning and implementing the techniques that you are learning.

Of course, the best solution is to be able to find everything in one place: the training, the tools and the support. Wealth Affiliate University online is such a place. There, for a relatively inexpensive fee, you can have access to trainings, tools, and support both via a forum and mentors in one place.

I cannot stress the importance of finding training and support when you start. This advice comes from my own experience. It took me more than a year to start making money because I wanted to learn everything on my own. It's only after joining Wealthy Affiliate however that I started making money.

Finally the last advice has to do with having the right mindset. If you come into the game of making money online with the mindset of finding a quick way to make money or having success overnight, you are setting yourself up for failure. There is a learning curve and steps to follow. Like any business you have to take the time to build it. Give yourself at least 3 to 6 months to see results.

Of course, how long it will take you to see results depends on how much time you dedicate to your business. The more time you put into it the faster you will see the result.

From advertising techniques, to finding the right audiences, and choosing HOT products that sell like crazy, to 1-on-1 mentoring and coaching by Kyle and Carson.

Factors for Success: The 11 Forgotten Laws according to Bob Proctor

During these hard times, we are faced with unemployment, doubts, personal challenges that are forcing us to re-evaluate our lives. These problems are leading us to search for a new direction that will take us beyond these challenges.

Fortunately, there is a solution that has always been there but that we forget to reach out to. The solution is to live and strive to apply what are called by Bob Proctor,

The 11 Forgotten Laws .

The 11 forgotten laws help us answer this key question: do we have the capacity to control our life despite appearances to the contrary?

The answer is a resounding "yes". We do have the power to control our lives. But in order to do so, we have to be in harmony with and apply these laws that we overlook and forget most of the time.

The Universe is ruled by laws.

Universal laws, also called spiritual laws or laws of nature, are the unchanging and unwavering principles that govern every aspect od the universe and our lives.

It's important to remember that these laws affect our lives whether or not we are aware of them. You should strive to align yourself and harmonize with them in a conscious and intentional way.

We are all, rich or poor, Black or White, affected by these laws. However, the majority of people believe that life just happens at random. They believe that the various events in their lives are just random occurences and that there is no definite purpose and reasons why things happen as they do.

However, things happen according to various laws. Becoming aware of them and developing an understaning as well as consciously aligning yourself with these laws should be a priority. Following that path can mean the difference between a life filled with lack, hardship, fear, anxiety and struggle instead of a life filled with happiness, joy, limitless abundance as well as peace and fulfillment.

The key to experiencing fulfillment and harmony in your life lies in choosing to become aware and consciously aligning your thoughts and your actions with these Universal Laws.

Note that you don't have to be religious to understand and apply these laws. The law of gravity for instance works whether you are White or Black, a Female or a Male. American or French, Catholic or Protestand, living in Canada or Africa.

I'll give you an example of one of these laws: the Law of Non-Resistance.

If you look at how things work in nature, the processes are effortless. Plants just bloom, grass grows everywhere, streams just flow. The Law of Non-Resistance has to do with with being in the flow of life, without any efforts. What does this mean?

It means that we can "do more with less effort". By developing acceptance of everything that is currently in your life and accepting them the way they are, not the way you would like them to be. If you are always thinking about how different you would like things to be in the present moment, you are creating resistance and will have to deal with frustration and anxiety. I'm not saying that you cannot plan for or wish for a better future. But while doing that, you have to accept the present moment.

You have to let go and relax. Be flexible and go with the flow of life. For instance you don't need to be right all the time. By adopting this attitude and way of being, you will notice that everything becomes easier.

Living in harmony with the Law of Non-Resistance is not easy since we learn very early, particularly here in the United States that we have to be forceful and determined. It's however possible to be determined and flexible at the same time.

Complete Success Tools to Manifest Your Desires

Using the Law of Attraction to manifest your desires, there is a tool that is 100 more powerful than goal setting and it's fully guaranteed!

It assists you in "manifesting" your desires.

What is manifestation?

Manifestation is the art or science of making things happen in the material world.

In the movie and book The Secret, they talk about thinking and focusing about your desires. Although many people tried doing that, they failed in manifesting their desires. It's because there are additional steps that are required.

You may have read about the success stories of gurus like Bob Proctor, Robert Allen or Anthony Robbins who have achieved outstanding success for themselves and their followers. They have done it through visualization among other things. Creating goals and focusing on them on a daily basis. Visualizing what you want in great details is usually advised. But that's not the whole story.

How can you make your desires manifest in your world?

How can you have your dreams come true?

Enter brainwave entrainment.

"Brainwave entrainment" or brainwave synchonization is the practice of entraining one's brainwaves to a desired frequency, by means of a periodic stimulus with corresponding frequency. The stimulus can be aural as in the case of binaural beats, monoral beats, and isochronic tones, visual, as with a dreamachine, a combination of the two with a mind machine.

Research has shown that successful people have one thing in common, they have similar brainwave patterns emerging again and again when they are focused on their intention and their wish.

Although there is a basic brainwave harmonic pattern, there are various sub patterns for material manifestation. love manifestation, sexual manifestation, psychic manifestation or spiritual manifestation.

What does all of this mean?

Simply put, you will be listening to a CD. While listening to the CD with the correct frequencies, it will transport you in a meditative state. We know that when we are in a meditative state, particularly right before falling a sleept, it is easier to implant what we want to achieve in the subconscious.

For many of us, there are beliefs that are still in our subconscious from childhood that are hindering our progrss today. It's sometimes very difficult to deal with those beliefs on a conscious basis. That's why we have to work at impressing the subconscious mind because it creates what you see in your material world. You have the power to create the life you want by simply directing your subconscious mind. Many of us create what we don't want in our lives by not paying attention to the subconscious mind. It then creates what we have in our lives by default. I'm sure you don't want that!:-)

So listening to those CDs on a daily basis can help you achieve dee personal growth and success in whatever you want to materialize in your life quicker than simply writing your goals (although you do have to do that also and be clear about them).

In addition, there are lots of good side effects to using good brainwave entrainment products. These side effects are: stress reduction, better concentration, increased energy, enhanced creativity, balanced moods and emotions.
