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.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last three years you probably know that we have been and still are experiencing some economic turmoil. During this same time frame, the hottest industry has been precious metals. Gold and silver in particular have gone from $800 an ounce to $1,400 an ounce and $14 an ounce to $30 an ounce, respectively.
You may have also seen TV ads offering to give you cash for your gold. Have you wondered why they are doing this? And what about some renown financial minds stockpiling gold and silver while recommending you and I do the same? Not to mention countries like China buying boatloads of gold and silver as well as other precious metals. What do you think it all means?
What they all have in common is that they are building financial arks in preparation for the economic storm ahead. Are you?
There are some simple strategies you can utilize to build your own financial ark.
3 step plan to building a financial ark
The foundation should start with information and financial education. Information is stats, trends, regulations, graphs, etc., while financial education is what you will need in order to understand the information you receive.
You can use the next 3 steps to build an ark that can weather the upcoming financial storm (pun totally intended).
Step 1. Join a network marketing company, preferably a gold and silver MLM. Why? Because you will be positioning yourself in the hottest industry today. Can you imagine building and preserving wealth at the same time?!
Step 2. Buy both collector grade gold and silver as well as bullion. Why both? You ask great questions! Graded gold and silver are the kinds you can make a residual income with. Bullion is the money of kings and will be cheaper while being an awesome way of preserving your wealth with the weakening of the dollar.
Step 3. Help others do the same. It comes down to the words of the great motivator Zig Ziglar: You can have what you want if you help enough people get what they want. This is essential to building your wealth. You could do it on your own but you know as well as I do that it will take much longer. Truth is, wealth-building is a team sport.
And there you have it. A 3 step strategy to help you take advantage of one of the largest transfers of wealth since the Great Depression. Are you ready?

At first glance you may think of David Wood as a long, curly haired hippy surfer dude but underneath is something far more. I came across some of his articles not so long ago and found them very insightful especially from someone so young (under 30).
He seemed to really know his stuff but what really shocked me was his openness and brutal honesty when it came to internet marketing and network marketing. But before I allowed myself to get caught up in his juicy information I had to do a little research so I decided to check his Alexa rankings and blog statistics and this guy was the real deal.
What I mean is that he gets real results and shows you exactly how he does it. Some internet gurus tell you a lot of fluffy stuff without telling anything until you go further down the rabbit hole (sales funnel). I understand the need to build a list but the concept of “giving” before you get still applies.
I love the genre of “internet celebrity”. With a lot of scammers and fakes out there you can still find some real leaders out there that are making it happen. Leaders like David Wood but also Mike Dillard, Yanik Silver, Jay Kubassek, Gary Vaynerchuck , Seth Godin, Katie Frieling, and a small host of others. In fact, I wish to be part of such a elite group.
More on David Wood…
David has commanded a very generous income in a very short period of time, and the best part is most of his concepts dwell around the word FREE; which is very attractive to many people who are either just getting started, or who have already over spent and are not turning a profit online. It is amazing what he has done in a very short period of time. He has a background in mlm with Amway being his first stint and later joining iLearning Global as the #1 recruiter then switching to Numis Network to once again become the # 1 recruiter. Not bad for a guy who was living in his van 2 years prior. The only thing that makes his success even greater is that once you understand his dynamics you realize “wow” you can do it also. If you are serious about making money online the system he follows is a very intricate but very simple 4 step process. However you have to implement the entire system to work.
He uses content marketing, combined with video marketing. Using this 4 step process has literally allowed him to dominate many top positions on Google using his specific and chosen keywords. For the triple threat he also uses social bookmarking sites which ultimately give him optimum exposure.

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
