Internet MLM – All About Leveraging?

Online Business can be a lonely business. You usually do not have any colleagues to brainstorm or discuss ideas. And you do not have any support from your subordinates as you are the sole proprietor of your own business.

However, it is important to LEVERAGE on manpower when you are considering online business. Leveraging on team efforts help to relief your workload and thus, fasten up your speed in achieving your goals.

What could leverage do with travelling all the way from Singapore to Klang (part of Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia)?

By travelling for about 400km, are you there just to enjoy the GLORIOUS food such as ‘Bak Kut Teh’...

OR enjoy the beautiful scenery at Cheras (outskirt of Kuala Lumpur)...

OR ‘lala’...

Leveraging on people when you are in an unfamiliar place not only help you ease in your direction, but also you are being recommended and introduced to fantastic food too.

So what does leverage got to do with your online business or career or your life?

For instance, in order to lift a heavy object, we do have a choice whether to use leverage or not. Well, a person can try to lift the object directly with the risk of injury, or use a lever such as a long plank of wood or jack. This will helps to transfer some of the weight and thus be able to lift the object with lesser effort.

In Internet MLM too, leveraging on people’s effort with the same force exerted, will produce a bigger result.

Which method is better? By not applying leverage, will you succeed? Perhaps... However, by using leverage, you are able to lift so much more and effortless.

So, the concept of Leverage is important in our business and career success. Without leverage, you may have to work very hard and rewards are limited by the hours you put forward. And with leverage, you are able to break this correlation and eventually, accomplish so much more.

The Courage To Change

Were you ever being offer a rare opportunity whereby you were unsure and had lots of uncertainties? And moreover, it was a tempting opportunities? Why majority of people reject to unusual ideas of thoughts?

Comfort zone? Mindset??

People react to the norm which is what others are doing for now, they would prefer to stay in their position because there are no uncertainties, where life will just pass by like any other people. And they are just comfortable in where they are? People are not receptive towards change, especially when a fresh new idea is being presented in front of them. It may sound wonderful to them, but they do not have the COURAGE TO CHANGE.

My daughter, Rae, 4yrs 7mths, picked up the word “The Courage To Change” and put it in her drawing. She may not understand those words, but in time, she will get it.

To Rae, it was a very simple representative drawing of herself in two positions.

But to me, I could perceive the great meaning with the wordings “The Courage To Change” incorporated. I could see that the girl who was standing under the tree, who was so used to her comfort zone, took courage to make her move out of the tree. The perspective is that, if that girl is to stay protected under the tree, there is a limitation to her view, however, when she moved her position, she could see the world in a wider angle. Yes, that’s the paradigm shift.

Well, this is how I analyse the drawing; I believe you may have a different view from mine. But it is always GREAT when you step out that comfort zone to have a wider angle of view – The Courage To Change.

The Power Of Passive Income - The Biggest Unreality In Our Life

Have you ever wonder why majority of the people rather work for Temporary Income, and it clearly does not produce any enviable end result? Well – this explains why – majority of the people have been brainwashed into “The Biggest Unreality.”

What is "The Biggest Unreality"? The Biggest Unreality is what we have been taught at a very young age:

"Only when you go to university and graduate with good grades, then you will get a good job and work for a reputable company. And you must be dedicated and give your all for that same company for 40 hours a week for 40 years of your life, then you will escalate the corporate ladder and by the time you arrive at the age of 65, you will be able to retire and enjoy the rest of your life…"

That's a BIG Unreality!! That's not reality at all, is it? In today's era, corporate security just doesn't exist, even if you find a job!

Here’s the reality –
  • Majority of the people are dissatisfied with their work, their income or the amount of free time they have.
  • Majority of the people spend more time on the job than with their families.
  • Majority of two income families still struggle to survive.
  • Majority of children under the age of 3 are already spending their waking hours in Child Care Center.
  • Corporate security no longer exists. Majority people get laid off even when they are at the highest performing peak.
  • More people are being filed for bankruptcy, and the number is increasing.

How about you? Have you fallen into the trap of "The Big Unreality"?

Get out of this rat race! Stop all this unreality! You don’t have to inhabit this kind of life!

You have a choice, you can ignore all this information, and continue to work for money OR you can be smart and let the MONEY WORK FOR YOU!

“I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference”, Robert Frost’s poem (1916) The Road Not Taken.

I have make money work for me – how about you?

The Power Of Passive Income - Temporary vs. Residual Income

Have you ever doubt why some people are able to earn unbelievable incomes and have the luxury time to enjoy the fruits of their labor, while others struggle just to make ends meet and find there are still insufficient hours in the day to do what they actually want to do?

Have these words ever spin in your head, "There's Got to be a Better Way!"

Well, the reality is out of the bag NOW! You are living the type of lifestyle that is not only determined by the amount of income you earn, but also the type of income you earn. Now do you realize that it sounds so basic… that we didn’t even think about it! Although there are numerous ways to earn income, in actuality, there are only 2 types of income.

There's TEMPORARY INCOME where you get the work done and then you get paid. And then there's RESIDUAL INCOME where you can do the work one time, but get paid for that effort over and over again - thus creating an ongoing CASH FLOW.

So what kind of income are you getting? TEMPORARY or RESIDUAL?

Uncertain? Ask Yourself…

  • If you are an employee, aside from prearranged vacation or sick days, if you don't go to work, do you still get paid?
  • If you are a professional, like a lawyer, doctor, or accountant, if you don't see your clients or patients, will they still pay you for your services?
  • If you are in sales, possibly real estate, cars or retail, if you don't show up to work, will your customers still pay you a commission?
  • If you own a small business, does it do equally well or better when you are not there?

If you get NO to any of those questions, then you are getting TEMPORARY INCOME.

Temporary income is wholly dependent on the total of hours you put in. Thus there is always a limit to the amount of hours you can or are willing to work. And therefore, there will always be a limit to the amount of income you can earn. The reality is that you can hardly accumulate wealth and enjoy true-life freedom by trading time for money. There are simply not enough hours in the day!

Are there any PROVEN ways to help you make the switch from TEMPORARY income to RESIDUAL income so that you can accumulate wealth, and have the quality time to enjoy your success?

And look out what is the “Biggest Unreality In Our Life”…

Traditional Network Marketing vs. Internet Network Marketing

Majority of the people join multi level network marketing program due to there are no better opportunity that allow them to make a Five to Six Figure Monthly Income with very little startup cost.

There are plenty of network marketing opportunities around but you have to be careful in your CHOICE and keep away from those SCAM Companies.

Getting in a mlm or network-marketing company is a long term business where many ordinary people can gain Financial Freedom through their lucrative Residual and Leverage Compensation scheme provided ONLY if they work hard.

Building a long term business means that you should look for a company that has been existent for years and preferably HUGE and REPUTABLE. It is UNLIKELY to build a MLM or Network Marketing Business part time within a SHORT time span of one year or less.

That is why MAJORITY build it as a part-time business before going for the full swing as a full-time jobs.

With the wonders of the Internet, there is a NEW trend where more and more people are joining companies that cater for this market. They now generate their leads and prospects from the internet instead of the traditional method earning a monthly income from the comfort of their own home with just a computer and internet connection.

In traditional networking marketing:

- have to go around everywhere you can think of to get leads and prospects,
- buy advertising ads on newspaper, related magazine etc.,
- pester your friends, prospect or anyone you can think of for more leads,
- need to make cold calls to your new leads to sound them out and check whether they are interested in the product you are selling,
- sweat everytime you make a cold calls as you are afraid of the sound of slamming phones,
- need to pay for your car petrol or other means of transport that you may be using,
- need to meet up with your downline physically to motivate or help them with any question they may have.

In Internet Network Marketing, you sell via the internet ways:

- list your networking product on your website and let it do the selling by writing killer sales ads,
- learn to optimize your website to get free new leads or prospects from the Search Engines,
- can get more new leads or prospect by bidding for keywords relating to your network marketing product with pay per click search engine such as Google Adwords (
- recruit your sales force by placing recruiting ads on your website,
- motivate and communicate with your sales teams using online tools such as emails, chat room or internet messenger,
- have the global market at the comfort of your home unlike the traditional Network Marketing Business which is usually limited to the local market.

For those who have an outgoing personality and like selling and are not afraid of direct rejection from new prospects, then the traditional network marketing companies suits you.

However, for many people, they are afraid of direct selling and joining a large and reliable internet mlm company is the best choice as they don't have to leave their home to make any sales.
