Most of us understand just how bad the economy has been over the last few years. We’ve had issues with higher food costs, increased gas prices, skyrocketing energy rates, and a shrinking economy. But the worst issue of all is the loss of jobs.
In these tough economic times we can either rise to the challenge or be crushed under the pressure. My biggest concern has been how others have and continue to react to the current conditions in general and the struggling job market in particular.
There have been two primary reactions to the poor job market: (1) acquiring a second job, and (2) going back to school for an additional or advanced degree. Now, I’m all for higher education, BUT the problem with both of these responses is that neither of them addresses the problem…lack of jobs.
Consider this for a moment. If there are too few jobs, how does getting a second job solve the problem? Moreover, how does acquiring a degree help you get a job that may not be available? Aren’t there others out there with the same degree you are trying to get that are struggling in this very job market? Of course there are. Do you have 4 years to wait? Maybe. Does adding more debt solve your problem? Probably not.
So it becomes pretty clear that the solution to a lack of jobs is …Job Creation.
Enter the Age of the Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurs are born out of crisis and are by nature problem solvers. The “crisis” could be personal, or they could strive to solve a problem bigger than themselves. But make no mistake, effective entrepreneurs are indeed problem solvers. As for job creation being a solution to a poor job market, think about the effects one successful business owner can have on the market.
If you start a business and you plan for it to become successful, you will require the assistance of others – either as staff members or consultants.
For instance, you may need a bookkeeper or accountant, or you may need a lawyer at least to form your business entity. You may also need staff members to do paperwork, filing, customer service support, etc. But it does not end there. Consider professional services such as marketing and advertising companies, joint ventures, associations, suppliers and vendors. All of these people would generate an income because of a successful business. Now imagine thousands of successful businesses!
The truth of the matter is that entrepreneurship is the heart of an economy. Simply look at any nation with a struggling economy and you will find that free enterprise is on life support. Is it the solution to end all of our woes? No. There are many challenges that face our economy and it will take strong, smart, moral and financially literate leaders to solve them but it is up to the entrepreneur to relieve financial strife whenever and wherever possible.

A lot has been said about magnetic marketing, often referred to as attraction marketing. Regardless of the term you use the goal is the same, it’s about the hunters making themselves the hunted. Let’s face it we (marketers) all want our prospects to come to us. Unfortunately, that can be daunting and/or expensive to say the least.
There are many industries and professions that use attraction/magnetic marketing. Affiliate marketers and Network marketers usually benefit the most from this art form. This has been a phenomenal paradigm shift for most, especially for the network marketer.
Today the top earners in network marketing are the ones who set up a system of generating leads into their primary business. Why is this so important? 97% of new network marketers fail. The reasons are many from no up-line support, poor tools, attitude, fear, laziness, outdated techniques, and on and on. But the biggest of them all is “no leads”.
In other words, newbies can’t sustain their auto-ship long enough to cover that expense with the help of sponsoring new recruits. The leads are just not coming in fast enough. Sound familiar?
What if there was a system that not only generated leads for you but allowed you to generate income simultaneously?
How powerful is that?! Not only is that powerful but it is exactly what the leaders in the industry are doing now.
If you expect to succeed in the network marketing industry you need to position yourself as a leader. Leaders get in position and leverage themselves with systems. Leverage your efforts with a lead generation system and start growing your business today!

Maybe you’ve recently been told by someone that CieAura is an amazing new business model that will make you wealthy from the comfort of your own home? Did they tell you about CieAura’s “transparent holographic chips” that will vastly improve your health and give your body the balance it needs? CieAura’s chips might actually work, and might relieve some pain and ailments in your body. I find the concept fascinating. There is some history with sort of methodology.
CieAura is an interesting MLM business to review and one which I’ve enjoyed putting together. This is unbiased and I hope informative to say the least, so let me know if it’s the kind of review you want to see of the CieAura MLM business by leaving a comment and your thoughts at the end. In my best Heath Ledger/Joker voice “And here we goes;
At the helm of CieAura you can find Ken Rasner, an Internet Marketer with a solid reputation in the field and a long track record. With a captain of the industry in the pilot box, you know that even though CieAura is one of the newer ships on the MLM seas there is not much chance of its hull getting rammed.
CieAura takes a stand in a niche where customers want results within minutes. They concentrate their efforts in the areas of pain, insomnia, energy and fatigue relief. The delivery system they use is in the form of a patch; subsequently, you don’t have the stigmata of a pill pusher attached to the product. Combine that with instant relief and you have a product which should take a good chunk of the market.
A fact that cannot be ignored is that 97% fail in Multi Level Marketing and down line attrition is at an all time high. Most MLM companies, such as CieAura, push their new members to make a list of family and friends and invite them over for a home presentation. “Modern day network marketers must understand that friends and family are not entrepreneurs, and home presentations are primitive and ineffective. In the MLM industry, marketing the opportunity to generate income, not the product, is how to effectively grow a business”, Mr. Woolf states. “Would you continue to use and purchase these holographic chips if you weren’t making any money? Probably not.”
You must try to create an income that is greater than your monthly auto-ship, company meetings, and marketing expenses. This is very difficult for the new person as it takes time to build a business and create an income large enough just to cover those expenses. It will be important to quickly get your business into a profit.
You must also take a look at the marketing strategy that you will be utilizing. If you learn from your sponsor and the leadership of CieAura they will teach you to make a names list. This list will consist of anyone that you know and would know you by name. You will then be taught to contact these people and show them why the holographic chips are beneficial to their health as well as let them know about the opportunity to sell them as well. This is okay to start out; however, you must also learn other marketing strategies as 99% of your income will come from people you do not currently know. This technique is very common in MLM trainings and is effective at fundamental and foundational business building however, many people still fail at it simply because 90% of the people you talk to will say no to any MLM opportunity.
To succeed in any network marketing company you will need to master the marketing part of the equation to get your business into profit quickly and also find other marketing strategies that will allow you to sponsor new distributors into your business. The key is a lead generation system, a system that markets you first as the leader, walks prospects through the sales funnel and provides tools to help others get what they want. Success is possible in network marketing is possible if you can apply this knowledge.
