What are you doing to create leverage and build your wealth? Do you have diverse streams of income or are all your eggs in one basket?


Do you trade time for dollars or are you creating “passive” income that accumulates even when you don’t work?


In these “uncertain economic times,” the majority of people who DON’T have all their income coming from one source will fair better than those who do. 


So just how can you diversity your income streams?


After interviewing 15 wealth experts on the various topics related to building wealth and living the lifestyle of their dreams, I saw a common pattern that emerged. Each one had created wealth from a variety of sources.


Some of those sources included their main or primary business, real estate, information products and Direct Selling.  And that’s what I want to talk about. Direct Sales. Direct sales can be Person to Person Sales organizations, Party Plan products (going into people’s homes or businesses and demonstrating the product) and Multi-level Marketing.  Each model works differently using other people’s contacts as leverage to build a business.


As with many business models, with a direct sales organization you can be your own boss.  However there are distinct differences. Some of those include:


Flexibility ~ With a network marketing/direct sales company you can work part time or full time and you are not necessarily trading time for dollars. You are trading people assets for income.


There is more than one way to make money.  You can make money by selling product directly to your customer AND by enlisting team members to sell to their customers giving you a residual income based upon your team’s performance.


Direct sales businesses are relatively easy to start up, there is often little barrier to entry in terms of skill level. In most cases you don’t need a college degree or even a high school degree.  You need a willingness to learn and a real desire to achieve financial independence.


The startup costs are not prohibitive. Generally you don’t need a lot of capital to get started as you may only pay a licensing fee and a monthly minimum of product sales (or purchases).


Once you’ve built your team or customer base, in direct sales, the income keeps on coming in (residual) even if you don’t work.


There may be tax advantages to being in direct sales such as the ability to deduct expenses for a home-office.


Most network marketing/direct sales organizations have a model in place that is replicatable and great support, ongoing education and continuous investment in product improvement and creation. 


You are surrounded by people just like you with similar desires and goals to live their dream life.


Don’t you deserve to live that same life? 


Network Marketing is not for everyone. I know! I have signed up for more companies than I can count on both hands.  Most of them didn’t work out. But that’s because I didn’t really work the companies or believe in the product or service. Until I found a company that resonated with my own purpose and mission in life.  Knowing that makes a huge difference! 


If you do want to diversify, check out several direct sales companies. Try to see past the rah, rah, rah and cheerleading that tends to go on. Find one that you feel comfortable telling your family and friends about.  That’s am important issue, because if you are not proud of the company you represent, it will show.

When you do find the right company, one you believe in 100%, it will be much easier to make the sale and start building a residual income stream that will help you create the financial leverage and live YOUR DREAM LIFE.

Joyce Bone one of our guest experts during the Grow a Million Dollar Business Summit talked about “How Millionaire Moms Achieved Financial Independence and You Can Too! 

Here are 3 Tips about investing in real estate Joyce shared with our audience:

Start slow ~ don’t try to buy everything at once.

Get educated ~ about the market, about the community you want to invest in, about other opportunities such as taking over other owners mortgages. Sometimes the best deals are those that other people can no longer hang onto.

Don’t do marginal deals.  Joyce said you will most likely make your money on the front end (beginning) of the deal. Not on the sale of the property. So buy right.

She also said “you gotta circulate to perculate.” Meaning if you want to learn about the community, get out and walk around in it. Check out local events, see what’s going on.  Join a local GAREIA group.

Joice talked about the best markets to invest in right now, mistakes people who invest in real estate make, success stories of some of the members of Millionaire Moms and much more.

Did you Miss Tom Antion’s Seminar (From Small Town Kid to Internet Multi-Millionaire) today at the “How to Grow a Million Dollar Business Summit?” 

If you did, you can still register and get his recording (and listen to all 15 experts who shared their top tips for Growing a Million Dollar Business and Life). 

Tom shared dozens of great ideas to make money on the Internet.  Just in case you did miss Tom today, here are some of the tips he shared with the audience during the hour+ seminar:

♦ To get great rankings for your website, create short videos and then post them on all the major Video hosting sites.  He also gave a great resource that does this for you. All you do is post it ONE TIME and then it auto-magically gets posted to the other 39+ sites.

♦ Joint Venture with others with larger lists than you. Especially if you are just starting out or if you don’t have a list.   JV partnerships are great win-wins for both parties as long as there’s a reason for the list-owner to promote your stuff.  Such as a good commission.  Find complimentary list owners and approach them about your ideas. I have done this with several authors offering ebooks I have written as Bonuses and have grown my own list literally by thousands in the process. The list can then be used to market other products the audience likely has an interest in.

♦ Have a presence on all the major social networking sites.  This helps with SEO and gets people to know you.  Tom also suggests you hire someone at an hourly rate to do this for you.  You could spend hours upon hours doing it yourself so you have to ask yourself what its worth to delegate this to someone else. Hire a high school student who knows their way around the ‘net to post your bio, pictures, audio and video to these sites and watch your visits increase dramatically.

♦ And what I consider the most important tip of the day: Get good training from someone who’s doing what you want to do. In this case, Tom Antion who is making thousands of dollars a month sitting on his BUTT, month after month after month.  And in fact, you can get that training when you attend Tom’s newest event FUSION.  Fusion is A three-day spectacular mixture of Internet Marketing, Professional Speaking and Success Principles that took a small town kid and made him a multi-millionaire



Tom has brought together the best of the best to share their expertise with you.  People like James Malinchak, Jeff Herring, Brendon Burchard, and more. By the way, just for checking out the site, you get instant access to 5 high-content preview calls. I listened to Alex Mandossian and Tom the other day and for more than an hour they shared resource upon resource with the audience.  You can access them here: http://tinyurl.com/4yx255.

Tom says, “Not only will you get my 30 years of business experience, I’ll be bringing in some of the best-of-the-best presenters to give you additional mini sessions on very specific topics. These are people I personally know and trust so you can be sure you won’t get a bunch of worthless information that doesn’t work in the real world.”

What I love about Tom is that he teaches people like me (interested in marketing and the internet but not in how to be a programmer – no Geek speak here) how to maximize our presence on the WEB to make MONEY – lots of it.  He has taught me more in the few hours I have listened to Tom, and his high content programs than in the 5 + years I have been studying the Internet.   I have learned that there really isn’t such a thing as “get rich quick” when it comes to making money online. In fact, if anyone tells you there is, I suggest you run away from that person as fast as you can!  Because otherwise you will probably dump hundreds, if not thousands of dollars down the drain on programs that promise you the moon and don’t even deliver moonpies!


Tom doesn’t teach you how to “get rich quick.” He does however teach you how to “Get Very Rich Over time.”  What better time than now to start making REAL Money on the Internet? Start now by checking out Tom’s FUSION Event.  It is such a great value for the money, if there is any way you can attend, go for it!


Maybe I’ll see you there.

  Marilyn Jenett of Feel Free to Prosper ~  How I Attract Million Dollar Clients Using Prosperity Principles – and You Can Too!  Get ready for an unexpected twist…

This one-of-a-kind prosperity mentor and accomplished business woman is going to share with you how her small one-woman business has attracted the world’s million and billion dollar corporations as clients for over 20 years – without marketing, advertising, networking or cold calling.

She never looked for clients – they spontaneously arrived as the result of applying the Universal laws and prosperity principles Marilyn now teaches in her Feel Free to Prosper program.

In this eye-opening session, Marilyn will share prosperity laws that can be applied to every type of business, to all clients at every financial level, and to all aspects of your business.

But you’ll be even more surprised when she explains and gives examples of how so many small businesses can offer their services to large corporate clients. It’s much more cost effective for corporations to outsource to small independent businesses for specialty services rather than have to maintain in-house staff.

Creating the right foundation – the right mindset – is the first step to attract these clients, but it’s easily within reach once you understand the prosperity laws.

Marilyn will share examples from her fascinating memoir of how she applied these laws and either spontaneously attracted or was intuitively guided to take the right actions that manifested large corporate clients for her.  In the past few months, despite the economic climate and without effort, she attracted and booked events for Nike, Reunion.com and other huge corporate clients – even though she had given up her events business two years ago to devote herself to prosperity teaching!
