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!

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.
