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.
“Fighting the evil forces of personal poverty both your and mine”
If you’re reading this third party review, then chances are you’re looking for information on Monitium. In this simple review, I’ll go into some information on Monitium that will help you make an educated decision about whether you should participate with them or not.
First, let’s cover some basic information about Monitium. Now, since it’s pretty early in their launch phase, there isn’t a whole lot of detailed information online, aside from all the promotional content telling people about it. What I can tell you is that it is being promoted as a platform, not an actual network marketing business, that is designed to help network marketing professionals solve one of their biggest problems.
So, what is this problem? Downline retention. In this day and age, with the advent of technology (specifically the internet), it’s becoming harder and harder for leaders to keep their team intact. This is because different companies, and industry leaders, are constantly bombarding distributors with the “latest and greatest, next big thing in network marketing”, so distributors move to other companies, taking their distributors with them…bummer.
So, what’s Monitium’s solution? Monitium has come up with a downline platform where you can potentially build one last downline organization under the Monitium umbrella. And, as Monitium introduces different network marketing companies into their system, you can simply participate with each company, and keep the integrity and structure of your downline, since everyone will participate together. In other word, you can build one group and “take” that group to different companies and join with an existing downline. Obviously, there’s a little more to it than that, but that’s the basic concept behind the company.
What’s most impressive to me is that they have a platform that’s seamless, regardless of what type of compensation plan is introduced or what countries are added to the platform. It’s also impressive that some big names are aligning themselves with Monitium. In addition to CEO Ken Eggleston, who is a documented network marketing distributor with decades of experience, network marketing leaders like Paul Morris and Rod Cook are also involved and are featured right on the Monitium website. Of course, it’s extremely early to tell whether this concept will catch on and succeed. However, it’s rumored that there are some network marketing companies that are embracing it and they are eager to be one of the first network marketing companies to be introduced to the Monitium community.
As I mentioned earlier, it’s still very early to tell how successful Monitium will be. However, if you decide to join Monitium, and even if they explode and become the greatest thing since sliced bread, you will still need to build a downline. And, while you can certainly build a downline offline, using traditional network marketing techniques, it would be smart to leverage the internet and generate leads online. My suggestion is to use an attraction marketing system that’s already in place to brand yourself and generate leads for your Monitium downline. If you can get the right training that will help you generate 30-50+ leads a day, and build a solid Monitium team, there’s no telling how successful you can become… especially, if their multiple-companies concept takes off and revolutionizes the industry.
While Monitium is in early launch right now, it’s critical that you get positioned if you’re serious about joining. If you’re interested in learning how to generate 50+ leads a day for your business, visit Robert’s MLM Training
To the rich, money is simply a game. While the average person sees it as a source of frustration and stress the rich sees it as a means to an end. To what end? In a word, “FREEDOM”. Freedom from the bondage of bills, freedom from limited options, freedom from a J.O.B, freedom from “checking” the price tag, freedom to travel, freedom from saying “Mommy/Daddy has to work, I can’t go to your game……, Just plain freedom. Wouldn’t you want that type of freedom? It’s about freedom not the money, only what the money represents.
First, the rich view themselves as either making money or losing money. Inflation does not stand still and nor does their money. They don’t save they invest. Second, their financial outlook is either “Win or Learn” instead of win or lose. They play the game of money to win while the average person plays not to lose (if they play at all). Lastly, the rich buy or build assets while the average person buys liabilities (stuff). Clearly the biggest difference between the rich and the average person is mindset, attitude and habits.
Like life, the money game has a time limit. I heard the financial game of life broken down into 4 financial quarters;
Ages 25-35 is our first quarter (REAL job working years)
Ages 36-45 is our second quarter
Ages 46-55 is our third quarter
Ages 55-65 is our fourth quarter (at this point many of hope to retire)
Ages 65 and beyond is overtime. (if you can’t retire)
Where are you in the game? Are you winning or losing?
For most of us this can be extremely eye opening. Rather than fearing the reality of falling behind in the financial game use it to empower you to make “in-game ” adjustments. In professional sports, teams often fall behind early on but make dramatic comebacks. (Except the Texans…just poking fun at the home team!) Winning teams figure out what is not working and adjust.
You too need to be savvy enough to strategize your comeback but flexible enough in your approach. Figure out your options and execute while there is still time. Here are a few play call options;
How do you know there is still time left on the clock? You are still breathing aren’t you?
Now get out there and win this game!

The Rise and Fall of American Democracy
(The following is a re-post by author Robert Kiyosaki)
Alexander Tytler (1747-1813) was a Scottish-born English lawyer and historian. Reportedly, Tytler was critical of democracies, pointing to the history of democracies such as Athens and its flaws, cycles, and ultimate failures. Although the authenticity of his following quote is often disputed, the words have eerie relevance today:
A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
A democracy will continue to exist up until the time voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
• From bondage to spiritual faith;
• From spiritual faith to great courage;
• From courage to liberty;
• From liberty to abundance;
• From abundance to complacency;
• From complacency to apathy;
• From apathy to dependence;
• From dependence back to bondage.
Tytler’s Cycle and the U.S.
In looking at American history, we can see Tytler’s sequence in action. In 1620, the Pilgrims sailed to America to escape the religious bondage imposed by the Church of England. Their spiritual faith carried them to the new world.
Because of their deep faith, the Pilgrims left England in spite of the high percentage of deaths incurred by earlier American settlements. For example, when Jamestown, Virginia, was founded in 1607, 70 of the 108 settlers died in the first year. The following winter only 60 of 500 new settlers lived. Between 1619 and 1622, the Virginia Company sent 3,600 more settlers to the colony, and over those three years 3,000 would die.
In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. From spiritual faith the new Americans were garnering great courage. By crafting the Declaration of Independence, the colonists knew they were essentially declaring war on the most powerful country in the world — England.
With the onset of the Revolutionary War, the colonists were moving from courage to liberty, following Tytler’s sequence. By demanding their independence and being willing to fight for it, a new democracy was born. This new democracy grew rapidly for nearly 200 years.
Then, in 1933, the U.S. was thrown into the Great Depression and elected Franklin Delano Roosevelt as president. Facing total economic collapse, Roosevelt took the U.S. dollar off the gold standard. At the same time, Germany, also in financial crisis, elected Adolf Hitler as its leader. World War II soon followed.
In 1944, with WWII coming to an end, the Bretton Woods Agreement was signed by the world powers and the U.S. dollar, once again backed by gold, became the reserve currency of the world.
After the war, America passed England, France, and Germany to become the new world power. Having entered the war late, the U.S. emerged as the creditor nation to the world. Our factories weren’t bombed and the world owed us money. The U.S. grew rich financing the rebuilding of England, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan. The American democracy was transitioning from liberty to abundance — maybe too much abundance.
In 1971 President Nixon violated the Bretton Woods Agreement by taking the U.S. dollar off the gold standard because America was spending more than it was producing and the U.S. gold reserves were being depleted.
In 1972 Nixon visited China to open the door for trade. What followed was the biggest economic boom in history — a boom fueled by the U.S. borrowing money through the sale of bonds to China, one of the world’s poorest countries at that time. The sale of these bonds financed a growing U.S. trade deficit. China produced low-cost goods, and we paid for them with money borrowed from the Chinese workers.
American factory production, which had fueled the American boom after WWII, was “shipped” overseas along with high-paying American jobs. America was shifting from abundance to complacency. Rather than produce, we borrowed and printed money to maintain our standard of living.
In 1976 America celebrated its 200th anniversary as a democracy. Rather than produce, we kept borrowing to finance social-welfare programs. Over the next three decades or so, America slid from complacency to apathy.
In 2007 the subprime crisis reared its ugly head. And by 2010, unemployment increased to double-digits, even as the rich got richer. Once-affluent people walked away from homes they could no longer afford. The U.S. moved from apathy to dependence.
Today we’re dependent upon China to finance our debt as well as fill our stores with cheap products. At the same time, millions of Americans are becoming dependent upon the government to take care of them. If Tytler is correct, the American democracy is presently moving from dependence back to bondage.
Filling the Void
History reminds us that dictators and despots arise during times of severe economic crisis. Some of the more infamous despots are Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Napoleon. I find it interesting that the U.S. is now dependent upon Chairman Mao’s creation, the People’s Republic of China, for the things that we buy and the money that we borrow.
To me, this is spooky, foreboding, and ominous. While the Chinese people, as a rule, are good people, my business dealings with Communist Chinese officials have left me disturbed and concerned about the rise of the Chinese Empire. As you know, China doesn’t plan on becoming a democracy. With money, factories, a billion people to feed, and a massive military, could they put the free world into bondage?
Although I don’t like the way the Chinese do business, I continue to do business in China. I have to. They’re the next world power. I cautiously believe that trade, business, and understanding offer better options for world peace and prosperity than isolationism.
Now the Western world must seek to grow stronger financially as China continues to gain power. To do this, our schools need to offer more sophisticated financial education to children of all ages.
This is not the time to be complacent or apathetic. This is the time to think globally. Putting up trade barriers would be disastrous. Instead, it’s time our schools train students to be entrepreneurs who export to the world rather than employees looking for jobs that are being exported to low-wage countries.
Please be clear. I don’t fear the Chinese. I fear our own growing weakness. Only a weak people can be oppressed. Today, America has too many people looking to the government for financial salvation.
In 1620 the Pilgrims fled the spiritual oppression of the Church of England. Today Americans may need to flee the financial oppression of our own government as our democracy dies. If we follow Tytler’s cycle for democracy, our financial dependence will lead us to financial bondage.
