The Associated Press has released the results of a recent poll that indicated 4 out of 5 Americans are facing poverty.
In a recent poll released by CNBC, it was reported that 85 percent of the people that are working, are happy with their jobs; and this is an unusually high job satisfaction level. Even though they are working and happy with their jobs, when asked to name two items that they are unhappy with, they name low wages and poor work/life balance. Even though they have a job, which is probably why they are happy (ie they have a job), they are working a lot of hours, have little personal time, and their wages are low.
By the way, the 15 percent of the people that are indeed working and not happy with their job, represent about 30 Million people. That is 30 Million people that are working yet unhappy with their job and looking to do something different.
And, of all the people working today, it is reported that 75% of them are living paycheck to paycheck
In a related category, 75 percent of the people who are age 50 or over and thinking about retirement have indicated they do not have the financial resources to retire and be able to keep the same or similar lifestyle… so they are seriously thinking about a second job or a new career where they can work longer than the mandatory retirement age. How many people is this? … It would be 40 Million.
Finally, there are about 10 Million new or recent college graduates, who have borrowed over $1 Trillion to pay for their way through college yet they have no job prospects other than low level, part time work.
As a point of reference, the recent Job Report from the Dpt of Labor, indicated that 150 thousand jobs had been created for the previous month. If that was annualized, it would be 1.8 Million jobs for a year.
This is not nearly enough to cover: 40 Million people unemployed searching for a job; 30 Million people unhappy with their job searching to do something different; 40 Million people of the age 50 or over looking for a second job or new career; and 10 Million new or recent college grads… this is approximately 120 Million people searching for a job, or a new job, or their first post-college job, or a second job.
Let me say that again … there are approximately 120 MILLION people searching for a job, or a new job, or a second job, or their first post-college job.
Our economy is not… and will not be able to create enough jobs to keep all these people out of poverty… so entrepreneurial fever has been kicking into high gear.
As an entrepreneur, essentially you build a product to sell to customers; or you offer your professional services to clients; or you become a franchisee of an existing business for a specific territory… as a way to make money. All of these require a reasonable amount of working capital to fund the startup and early operations for these types of businesses.
An alternative is to be an affiliate of an existing product or service that you can promote and earn a commission.
You don’t have to raise capital to create your business because the business has already been created for you; you have to build your business around the affiliate’s product or service offering.
Among the many appealing factors is that anybody can do it. Network marketing does not require specialized experience or skill sets. All that is needed is a commitment, desire, hard work, and belief in oneself. Regardless of age or background, one can succeed in this increasingly popular business model.
Network marketing can be done on a part-time basis to help make a little extra cash. Successful, more seasoned network marketers are often able to quit their full-time jobs and focus solely on building their business as independent distributors. In either case, much of the work can be done from the friendly confines of one’s home. This helps the distributor to not miss out on school performances, dance recitals, and soccer games.
Network marketers can find other benefits by making new friends and being recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments. And, of course, the sky’s the limit on building income.
This business model is even gaining traction in the classrooms of higher education. In the fall of 2011, Bethany College, located in Lindsborg, Kansas, instituted a network marketing curriculum. Bethany students can earn a bachelor’s degree in marketing with an emphasis in network marketing. This is the first institution to offer such a major. According to the college, “The program’s mission is to promote integrity, trust, and transparency in network marketing. Network marketing is an emerging business model that is under-represented in business education.
Also, Carl Icahn, the somewhat famous business magnate and wealthy investor, now worth over an estimated $14B, stated, as part of his investment in Herballife, that Multi Level Marketing (MLM) also sometimes called Network Marketing, is a model of the future for retail distribution especially as it gets more expensive to maintain retail storefronts in large shopping malls around the country and in regions outside of the U.S. that just don’t have big shopping malls all over their country.
Many have chosen to build their businesses and distribute Protandim… an antiaging supplement at LifeVantage. Many LifeVantage distributors understand the capacity that network marketing has to change lives. As a LifeVantage independent distributor, you have the ability to not only create the life you dream of but to empower others to do the same and help them rise above their obstacles and become limitless.
In addition, with advances in heath care, better diet, and exercise, it is clear we are going to live a longer life.
As mentioned in a previous posts on this blog, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, has reported that “Practical Immortality may now be within our grasp.”
So now the questions become, “how do we slow the rate of aging and avoid the frailty that would make longevity less desirable?” And how can we afford to keep our lifestyles and live our longer life?
Essentially, we can do all of this with antioxidant supplements!
You can read other posts on this blog about Protandim, the antiaging supplement from LifeVantage. It is both an antiaging supplement and a business opportunity.
With antioxidant supplements, we can slow our rate of aging; with a nutrition and fitness routine, we can avoid frailty and improve our health; and with an industry leading home business opportunity, we can make great money and generate financial wealth.
