What 15 Years in the Network Marketing Industry Taught Me, by Greg Aldrich

Joke of the Day

Word from Moderator
------------------------------

It’s Pressmania day today! :) Our gracious publisher, untiring innovator and CEO of
this huge operation called AdlandPro, Bogdan Fiedur, has just announced a
TERRIFIC opportunity for all of us if we wish to assist in populating the new
AdlandPro venture, Pressmania!

We have created new advertising site which goes deep into local areas and offers
language specific options for users from all other the world.

Pressmania has just opened 4 countries to start

United States
Canada
Australia
United Kingdom

More countries will follow with their language and currency specific details.

Please check New York area to get the feel how the site operates.
http://ny.pressmania.com/ 

Pressmania offers you the opportunity to earn $0.40 for each user you send to use
our free local classified site at http://www.pressmania.com 

The amount of $0.40 per lead will be offered for the next two weeks starting Apr 18, 2005.
After that we will offer $0.30 per lead for two weeks period and then for $0.20 per
lead for the following two weeks.

Eventually the price per lead will drop to $0.10 per lead.

So we would like to ask you to send to us as many users to use our new local
classified system at http://www.pressmania.com over the next two weeks, so you can
earn the highest possible income

Once we obtain sufficient traffic, we will sell prime advertising spots through
auctions. You will be eligible for up to 70% commissions from those auctions and
we will invite all your leads to participate.

The effort you put now into bringing new customers for our free classifieds now, will
pay off later in residual commissions from auctioned spots.

Let’s go folks! Here is your chance to offer IMMENSE value for FREE. PLUS get
paid for it! Your referral link has already been mailed to you so get busy!
Now if this is an honest, up-front and VALUABLE service you can offer to your

What’s YOUR story?
==================

Let’s get a bit more practical today. We are all involved in online business for one
reason: to earn money and improve our way of life, right? That’s a nice, broad goal,
and we all start out full of enthusiasm, try to learn the ropes, and go out into the wide
world with stars in our eyes… Some of us seem to do much better than others. They
make TONS of money. Others are not so lucky. They either barely make ends meet
or they fail altogether and give up in disgust.

I would like to know YOUR story. Are you a success and how did you do it?
Or if you are still struggling, why do you think that is?

Re: Passionate
From: Eva Marie Farrell

Hi Amalia,

Yes, I agree with you that we should be passionate but it takes a lot of courage, and
perseverance that also includes time and efforts in order to pursue our goals. I only
work on the program or business that works for me that's my passion.

Re: What Are You Passionate About?
From: Monique Bizzell

I must be really passionate about design. I've been putting in very long days,
sometimes 30 hours straight with the new tools I've developing for something I
became passionate about - affordable marketing tools that produce results for you
and give you the tools to quickly determine that.

When was a programmer I worked crazy hours, I have a need to finish yesterday to
move on to the next tasks, but there are never enough hours in the day.

I have to remember to pace myself, but it's so easy to get lost in what you're doing
that time doesn't exist.

I didn't have the finds to buy a RAD tool, so I've been piecing together open source
tools and today I finally have a RAD that will work for me to develop the front and
back end on my pc. I find some good remote development tools but they went via
my server and it was eating my bandwidth up to produce the pages.

I had to install my on server with db and code compiler on windows. I finally got all
the apps to speak to one another via my login and the first site development tools
wrote too much verbose code over a odbc layer and to edit all those files would slow
me down, but I found a solution and now can build my applications and much sooner
than the other ways.

I get to write the code, test it online without touching my bandwidth and all the tools
are completely free. That's several thousands in saving on software alone.

If you haven't been in the open source arena latest you really should check out what
they are offering now-a -days.

Sorry to ramble, but I psyche about getting this programming environment and being
able to work on my applications.

Thanks,

mb

Re: What is Your Passion?
From: Yvonne Finn

Well, I could say my passion is people.
Not the whole wide world in general, but the one on one interaction between
everyday encounters.
Please don't get me wrong!
I am not interested in gossip "or getting the dirt" on anyone.

What I mean is how I can make a positive difference in someone's life, on an
immediate basis. I enjoy being of service, whether supplying information or actual
hands on help.

People, who are actively seeking to improve their lot in life, are my passion!
I am a tireless cheerleader, an eternal encourager, a sounding board I don't see how
you can help someone succeed, without succeeding yourself!

That's my passion!
Have a passionate day, week, life!

Re: Are YOU a salesperson - True as far as my Kids are concerned, but that’s it.
From: Gary Mutton

Yes Cathy, I would convince My kids to chose the snack I want them to have but
then they are kids, and my kids at that.

Where any one else is concerned, I truly am not a sales man, so that is as far as that
goes. I will inform somebody of a product or program I like but if they say to me
thanks but no thanks, then I will simply say, "OK then" and leave it at that, I can't lie
and will not try to persuade them, I feel like a scum bag if I were to try and persuade
people to spend money on something that they have already told me they don't want,
so end of story.

Re: RSS
From: Monique Bizzell

RSS is exciting to me. I very new and I like to understand things from a technical
angle first and here's a good link for that:

http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss 

It's an easy read.

I got a free toolbar tool via Effectivebrand.com.

You can config the toolbar to whatever links, even html code objects and add RSS
feeds, offer a link to download your tool bar and the toolbar user can get your RSS
feeds even without an aggregator because one is built into the toolbar if you choose
that open.

You can setup your account to easily send feeds.

I think it's a very neat tool to use.

Also I found a few RSS directories to promote my RSS.

Tripod blogs offer an easy RSS and you can config the pages almost as much as any
html website tool.

Some things for others to try.

Thanks,

mb

Re: Ken's Response
From: Rebecca Beasley

Hi Ken...you are very right.
That is most people's reaction when someone punches them in the mouth, and it was
meant to be a drastic example.

My point is, that to every action there is an equal AND/OR opposite reaction.

I don't know all the technical terms for this, but a huge jet plane for instance has fuel
the propels extremely hot air out the back (or whatever) and that backward
propulsion can push this huge piece of machinery forward and up and get it high
enough in the air for it to fly faster than the speed of sound.

That's an opposite reaction between the huge jet and the fuel. But they both work
together to do the task that needs to be done to make the jet fly.

(Forgive my non technical explanation)

Two people can have a total disagreement about any given subject and it can turn
into a knock down drag out fight, or they can continue to talk things out and find out
they agree on more than they disagree on.

It's all in how you react.

I've had several occasions in pm's and emails to realize that the written language can
be taken the wrong way and cause a major disagreement just because someone has
misunderstood you… they've had a certain "tone of voice" in mind that they put with
your words.

Maybe they're skeptical, maybe they're suspicious because they've been taken so
many times by unethical marketers, and it's not what you say but how they take what
you say. And you might not be thinking along those lines at all, but whatever you
said, or however you said it, whether you intended to offend them or not, you have to
deal with trying to clean up the mess.
You can keep trying to be diplomatic and apologize for what they think you meant of
you can get bent out of shape and ruin all your chances for any future agreements
with this person.

How you react makes all the difference.

But the equal and opposite part comes in when you react in a positive way to a
negative response. It works every time. Even if they don't follow your lead, you
know you've done the right thing. Also they're more likely to come back some day
than not and say... you know... I've been thinking about what you said… and I have
to admit, I was wrong about you.

Reply to Ken Re: Positive Thinking
From: Cathy Wagner

Hi Ken,

Actually my mentor uses a very simple "nuts and bolts" approach to changing
thought patterns. Mostly, it involves physically writing specific affirmations to
penetrate your subconscious faster and monitoring your thoughts and speech (with
her help) to eliminate all negativity. She also focuses on gratitude, tithing and some
visualization once you've gotten past the basics. It's a gradual process that doesn't
promise instant results (although some have reported this,) but rather produces long
term, positive habits that are designed to stick with you.

Regards,

Cathy

Re: HYIP by Paul
From: Mike Sullivan

Greetings,

As to your statement that PIPS was first HYIP, no, far from it, and technically, it is
not a HYIP. As you have done, so have many who saw the same sad results with
most MLM land deals, we looked elsewhere.

I research everything, and HYIP's have been around for years, but sadly, 90% are
indeed scams, or as some will say, ponzi's. Does this mean you can't make money?
No, it simple means most are short term earners, and most often with any short term
HYIP, there will be losers.

Funny thing is, the percentage of losers in HYIP arena is no different than that of the
MLM industry, so to say all HYIP's are scams is the same as calling all MLM deals
scams. There are a few which do earn the stated claims though trades, forex, stocks,
arbitrage, debentures, whatever, but they are far a few between in my experience.

First, unless you can identify principals, office location, history, bank references, and
normal due diligence, don't waste your time or money, for surely if this most basic
information is absent, then it is surely a ponzi or scam. Do not invest in anything
you cannot see, touch and contact, and this means do not invest in an internet only
based HYIP.

I have seen hundreds come and go, and few will last more than a few years, even the
best managed ones, so investor beware. Look at HYIP's as you would any other high
risk venture. In my opinion, and as a gambler, both in business and casinos, I put
HYIP's in same high risk category. Never risk more than you can afford to lose, this
is as simple as it gets if you consider a typical HYIP.

As to reference to PIPS, although it is considered a HYIP by many, it is far more
than a typical HYIP, and to explain would take more space than I have here. I have
been in PIPS from start, and it has far exceeded my expectations, as it has for
thousands of others, but does this mean it will be here tomorrow or next week? NO.
It simply means I checked it out, spoke to CEO and all support staff, visited offices,
contacted bank and licensing offices for region, and then took a leap of faith. (g)

Well, the rest is history, PIPS has created more wealth than any other business I have
ever researched, and continues to do so this very day, three years later. I have lost
more in the stock market than I have with HYIP's, so in my opinion, if you are
invested in stocks, then you are the perfect candidate to research HYIP's and in my
experience, there is little difference in risk if you do your due diligence first.

Again, never invest what you cannot afford to lose, but as any wealthy person will
tell you, no risk, no reward. Look at all the people pumping billions into lottery or
gambling, with poker tournaments exploding worldwide. This is no different than
investing in HYIP's, so chose wisely and you will have far better odds of hitting a
winner with a HYIP than with gambling and you need no experience, just chose
wisely.

Good luck, Mike

Cathy you have a great looking site.
Not crazy about the frames for the index page ... but it works with a Google P/R of
4/10 !

Navigation: excellent
Color scheme: excellent
Load at 28.8 is 16 sec great!


Your site is content rich! As far as me believing it? Well I have read so much hype
on the web for so many years I don't believe any of it. Helping others is a great
concept.

I looked at it as a newbie and your site says you are very credible. It says you have
credibility. That is what counts! I am sure you are already doing well with it. Keep
up the good work!

Hello Cathy,

I love your site!
Anyone who knows me, know that I don't "gush". However, you site and the copy
really "speaks" to me. For me that is exactly how a site should be, clear, straight-
forward talk. Tell me who you are, what you do, with as little wandering and
waffling as possible.

Let me make some choices, which is what you do so, eloquently, on your very
professional and well organized website.

What you offer is a much needed service that will never be exhausted as the number
of Internet business seem to grow exponentially, everyday.

The colour choices and your picture adds to the credibility of a very creditable and
credible site.

Your prices are more than reasonable. I have seen some that were "highway robbery"
that did not offer half or what you do.

Cathy, I wish you wonderful and sustained success with

P.S There is a typo in the last paragraph entitled "How Much"?
The last sentence should «your persistence" not "persistance".

Hello Vaughan,

Humor is indeed a necessity as so many of us are over-worked, over-stressed and
over- serious. Speaking from personal experience, I know the importance of
"lightening up" whenever I can.

You site is well written and yet conveys the whimsy that you intended and promised.
I especially enjoyed the "Throwing In The Towel" article.

As well, this is a mostly adult content and you made sure to say that, clearly and with
humor.

I wish you a long run with http://whimsicalwayz.com/ and I will be sure to check in
often.

We can all benefit from more laughter (sometimes it's the best medicine!)

====================GUEST ARTICLE =====================

What 15 Years in the Network Marketing Industry Taught Me, by Greg Aldrich
=========================================================

Just whisper the words “network marketing” and you’re bound to get an emotional
response from your listeners.

Many people are still saddled with antiquated ideas of how the old multilevel
companies were run in the 60’s and 70’s. Remember? Those days when cars had to
give way to products stockpiled in your garage and family and friends were suddenly
afraid to visit you.

But the industry has grown past that caterpillar stage.

Added to this misconception is a common fear of failure. There are many people
who in their quest for a home-based business opportunity try network marketing and
fail at it. Without questioning why, they have just avoided the industry ever since.
Having ‘survived’ the industry for over 15 years I’ll like to share with you my #1
secret for making it big … really BIG in network marketing.

The secret is choosing a team with an experienced coach who will teach, guide and
motivate you towards success.

Of course there are other factors such as the financial backing of the company,
timing, the compensation plan and marketing a consumable product. But if you are
not properly trained and motivated during those early months you are almost doomed
to failure.

Just think about it, every professional business person or athlete has a coach. Why
should it be different in network marketing? I wouldn’t have survived as a network
marketer if it wasn’t for the gifted leaders that I was privileged to work under and to
learn from.

There are many business owners who will invest over $50,000 in a franchise and still
pay a business consultant a 5-figure retainer for advice so that their business
succeeds. In network marketing, you can start your business for less than $500 and
literally choose the coach or leader who will train you for FREE! Of course this will
involve doing a little background check on the team leader you choose to work with
but it’s time well spent.

Here are a few pointers that will help you when seeking out the ‘correct’ coach:

1. Make sure that he or she has a proven track record.

Just as the cream always floats to the top of the milk so a gifted leader will also
prove his or her worth in the results produced. Generally speaking, you will not rise
higher than your leader, so know how high you want to reach and find a coach who
can get you there.

2. Go with someone who has been in the industry for many years.

Gaze up into the night sky and you’ll see an occasional shooting star. It burns bright
and then disappears. This may be exciting to watch but only for a short moment. You
want a leader who will be like the northern star—bright and steady. Those who are
successful network marketers are people who stay for the long haul. Many people
give up too quickly and never reap the harvest.

You want to choose a leader who have experienced some bumps in the road and can
now be selective in choosing a company that is most likely to remain out of the
MLM graveyard.

3. Find someone who knows how to market.

Network marketing is just that: marketing through networking. An essential part of
the equation therefore is the effective marketing of your business. Marketing can eat
up a small budget very quickly. Therefore, you must know what works from what
doesn’t work so that you can use your advertising dollars most effectively. The name
of the game is maximum returns for your money. I mean, that is the whole idea
behind network marketing—leverage. This translates into small effort and great gain.

Find someone who knows how to use the tools of the trade such as teleconferencing,
voicemail, direct mail, the internet and broadcast media. This is a business so you
have to treat it like one.

4. Find a leader who studies the industry.

Anyone who claims to be a professional will subscribe to magazines in his area of
expertise, attend seminars to keep abreast of what’s happening and keep his pulse on
the industry. This is the only way that trends can be determined and what is working
for the competition be uncovered. To simply concentrate on your own company and
be blinded to what others are doing is narrow and myopic.

There are a lot of lessons to be learned from other network marketers that can be
incorporated into one’s own business.

5. Look for a leader who has people skills.

There is no escaping it. Even with all the new technology at our fingertips, network
marketing is a people business. If a leader doesn’t love people then it will show and
recruits will know. Network marketing could qualify as part of the hospitality sector
because so much of its success depends on empowering and affirming people.

So find a leader who will be respectful of your value as a person and not just as
another number to add to his downline.

The right opportunity and company may be the vehicle to your success but an
effective coach is like high-octane gas in the tank!

================JOKE OF THE DAY==================

A Million Dollars
==============

A man was walking through a forest pondering life. He walked, pondered, walked,
and pondered. He felt very close to nature and even close to God. He felt so close to
God that he felt if he spoke God would listen. So he asked, "God, are you listening?"

And God replied, "Yes my son, I am here."

The man stopped and pondered some more.

He looked towards the sky and said, "God, what is a million years to you?"

God replied, "Well my son, a second to me is like a million years to you."

So the man continued to walk and to ponder... walk and ponder... Then he looked to
the sky again and said, "God, what is a million dollars to you?"

And God replied, "My son, my son...a penny to me is like a million dollars to you. It
means almost nothing to me. It does not even have a value it is so little."

The man looked down, pondered a bit and then looked up to the sky and said, "God,
can I have a million dollars?"

And God replied, "In a second."
