A full-time income on part-time hours revisited part one: An exciting business opportunity for you!

“Remember to keep an open mind and get some new information!”

Two key focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. I originally published this series back in November of 2013 when I wrote for the Examiner. Of the businesses that the average working-class person can get involved in, none are more controversial than “Multi-Level Network Marketing” businesses (MLMs). I bought into a MLM when I first started my federal career which was a learning experience. It sounded like a good idea at the time but didn’t go quite as planned. This series talks about what I both experienced and learned during that little experiment.

This next series of articles will veer off the path of scholastic education and literacy, and venture into the world of financial literacy. This series will look at Multi-Level Network Marketing businesses (MLMs). It’s an subject area rarely explored in print, but one which we’ve all experienced through personal participation, being recruited or being sold a product or service by someone else.

These business models and the people involved with them are already highly scrutinized, thus the intent of this series is not to do more of the same. The goal will be to simply take an objective look at them from multiple perspectives: the business associate, their prospects, friends, relatives and coworkers. As a writer, my goal will be to be fair in my commentary.

This topic will potentially touch multiple people. It’s particularly relevant in this era of recessions, further potential government shutdowns and sequestrations where people are being forced to consider alternative ways of earning income. Again, the goal here is not to sway anyone to a particular side, but simply to educate readers curious enough to read this series.

“Hey man, I want to talk to you. I’ve been watching you. You look like a serious brother, and I have a business opportunity to turn you onto,” a bus driver told me at the beginning of my commute one morning. “I don’t want to drive this bus forever, and I want to make some real money! Take this brochure and if you text me your number, I’ll invite to one of our meetings so you can get some more information!”

I could hear some contempt in his voice, particularly about having to work his job which was interesting. It raised a couple of questions in my mind. Why would someone feel contempt about working their job? Why would someone feel contempt about working a job? Why would someone feel resentful about having a paycheck? Many would say that there’s dignity in working. We’ll revisit this later in one of the subsequent parts of this series.

Besides being surprised that one of the metro bus drivers ‘prospected’ me for recruitment into his business, it brought back memories of my own experiment with Multi-Level Network Marketing. Just briefly, Multi-level Marketing is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople they recruit.

What made this bus driver prospect me? And what made him consider me a “serious brother?” It could’ve been my regular ridership on his route most mornings. Perhaps it was my “serious” appearance and disposition that made me seem like someone who could effectively work in his business and help he and his colleagues achieve their financial and life dreams.

My thoughts reflected to the many network marketers encountered during my travels in person and on social media, and what their motivations were. My motivations at one time for participating in one were: becoming rich, taking advantage of business tax breaks, and being able to walk away from my job.

Since 2005, multiple opportunities have come across my path. The first was from an Indian man in his late 20s in a supermarket late one night just before I moved away from Michigan. After striking up a friendly conversation with me about my life and aspirations, he started talking about an ecommerce business he was involved in. He encouraged me to learn more about it and to, “keep an open mind and get some information,” common phrases used by prospectors. Have you ever experienced anything like this?

Since then there have been numerous offers to participate in businesses involved in ecommerce, financial counseling, travel services, weight loss/health products, legal advice, organic coffee, and health care services. The list goes on. You name it, and someone has gotten it covered.

At their informational meetings, most if not all the network marketing businesses had elaborate presentations, and marketed dreams of:

• Financial independence;
• Making multiple residual passive income streams;
• Walking away from 9-5 jobs;
• Taking vacations whenever desired;
• Making your own schedule and;
• Making a full-time income on part-time hours.

This topic will be examined in greater detail in the subsequent articles. People’s motivation for joining this type of enterprise will be examined in part two of this series.

5 Ways To Reduce Workplace Injuries

Three of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money, Business/Entrepreneurship and Health/Wellness. Depending on which industry you’re in, there can be a lot of potential for workplace injuries. Figuring out how to reduce workplace injuries, can ultimately save you money and increase the morale of your workforce. The following contributed post is entitled, 5 Ways To Reduce Workplace Injuries.

It’s essential that your workplace is a safe environment for employees. Accidents will happen in almost all trades – even if there aren’t any obvious hazards – but you should still try to minimise the risk, if not to protect your employees, to at least protect your company from the threat of a lawsuit. Here are just a few ways in which you can reduce workplace injuries and keep it a safe environment.

Point out hazards with signage

The easiest way to prevent injury is to clearly point out hazards with signage. Such hazards could include anything from a hot water tap to a low ceiling. In the case of multiple hazards, don’t be afraid to provide a large informational sign or even a manual to make guides aware of multiple hazards. It could also be important to provide temporary signage such as wet floor signs when mopping.

Supply safety equipment

Safety equipment such as these men’s work boots could also be necessary for reducing injuries. By making it mandatory to wear such equipment, you can ensure that employees are physically guarded against dangers. There could also be tools such as step ladders and fire extinguishers to consider.

Introduce health and safety protocols

Health and safety protocols require employees to carry out tasks in a specific way. This could be something as simple as how to safely carry a box to something complex such as how to put out a kitchen fire. Try to introduce a series of steps that employees have to follow and make sure that employees carry out the task in this exact order so that no step is missed out.

Train your employees thoroughly

There’s no point having protocols in place if you’re not going to train your employees how to perform these protocols. Make this a vital part of your training whenever you hire a new employee. Refresher training could also be worth undertaking with older employees to ensure that they’re still doing everything correctly and not cutting corners. Certain aspects of health and safety such as fire safety or using heavy machinery may even require enrolling employees on a course.

Supervise hazardous tasks

If you have the manpower, it could be worth having employees supervise one another when carrying out particularly hazardous tasks. For instance, you may not need someone to supervise when lifting a box, however if an employee is climbing a tall ladder, supervision could be essential in order to keep the ladder steady.

How to Work With The Right Companies In Business

Two of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. In business, it’s not enough of run a quality operation yourself, but you also must eventually work with other quality companies. If you’re new to the business world, this might not be obvious to you at first. The following contributed post is entitled, How to Work With The Right Companies In Business.

There are so many companies that exist out there, and some of them will be able to help you whether it’s too do with accounting for your business or supplying materials for your products. Here’s how to work with the right companies for your own business.

Get Help With A Database

Why trawl through hundreds of websites and going through every single tender individually, when you could get it all in one place. There are plenty of online tenders that are grouped together on websites to help you easily navigate all the services that you may require and to help you find the best one for your location, budget, and requirements. These websites are going to make it much easier for you as a business to find someone that’s reputable and is going to be able to provide what you need. With so many listed on a daily basis, why would you want to waste your time doing all the leg work yourself? That just seems silly!

Look At Their Previous Work

When it comes to working with other businesses, whether it’s to work on your latest marketing campaign or manufacturing, it’s important to look at the company’s previous work. What have they achieved so far, and what level of results have the been? Have previous clients been satisfied? Many companies will likely want to show off any positive reviews they’ve received or testimonials from clients who’ve been impressed so if they don’t have any of these, then that should be raising a few red flags.

Discuss Your Requirements Beforehand

It’s good to know that the company you work with is going to provide you with what you’re after. It’s foolish to rush into agreeing on a contract or business deal without having discussed it in length prior. So set up a business meeting, to begin with, and figure out what you’re criteria is and whether they can meet it and how much they are going to charge you for it. This is important because you may be able to find something for a lot less but with the same quality as the company you’re discussing it with right now.

Keep Up The Conversation

When you’re discussing the business arrangements over email, then it’s very likely that progress will slow down and when you’ve got a strict timeline, that’s not something you want. So try to keep up the conversation from your end and ensure that you’re getting some sort of response from them on a daily basis. If they’re taking their time, then get in touch via phone or arrange a face-to-face meeting. The more you keep on top of them, the more efficient they’ll be in getting things done quicker. Unfortunately, it’s something that you as the requestor will need to be leading.

Working with the right companies is important to business success especially, as every mistake made can be problematic to your company. Follow these tips, and you’ll find that fewer problems are likely to occur.

How To Know If You’re Hiring The Right Person

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success and A key focus of my blog is Career Discussions. I key to the success in any organization is hiring the right people. Doing so will give your organization the best chance to succeed. The following contributed post is entitled, How To Know If You’re Hiring The Right Person.

If part of your job is hiring new people, you may be wondering where exactly you start. Almost anyone can present themselves well in an interview, so how do you figure out who the best candidates are? Here are some tips to help you work out who’s worth hiring…

Consider Their Potential
When you’re interviewing someone, it’s important to focus on the potential that they have, rather than what they’ve done in the past. Relevant experience is always nice, but it’s important to make sure that you hire someone who is driven to learn and wants to do better instead of someone who could do the job in their sleep. A common interview technique is walking candidates through their resumes, but is that really such a good idea? If you called them in for an interview, chances are their resume is absolutely fine. Consider the future instead and the potential that the candidate has to learn.

Source

Check Their References
It’s important to make sure that the candidate is who they say they are. Even though you should focus on the future, you need to ensure that the information you have about their past is completely accurate. Make sure that you call up their references before you offer them the job to confirm that the information you have is accurate. If you’re uncertain, you could even conduct a background check that will tell you everything that you need to know.

Source

Think About Your Current Team
It’s important to think about the team that you already have when you are hiring somebody new. Even if they remind you of someone you love who already works with you, that might not be a good thing. You want to make sure that you don’t hire clones of people who are already at the company. You need someone who has a different skillset and who brings something entirely new to the office.

Source

What About Your Office Dynamic?
A hugely underrated thing to ask oneself during an interview is: Could I handle sitting across from this person for forty hours every week? It’s important to consider whether the candidate will fit in with your office dynamic. If you can tell they’re a quiet and shy person when your office is extremely sociable and loud, there’s a chance that they might not fit in – and that they might not be happy there. Your resume has given them all the information you need on their employment history so don’t forget that part of the interview process is to work out who’s a good fit for you and your team.

Source

Ask About Hobbies And Interests
Most jobs can be learned eventually, and people can be trained to hold certain workplace skills. But there are qualities like hard work, teamwork, and a positive attitude that can’t be taught. So it’s a good idea to ask the candidate about what they like to do in their spare time. If they play on a basketball team, they know how to work well with others. If they love to draw, they’re creative. If they like to hike, they’re persevering and adventurous. You can measure people’s qualities by the way that they spend their free time.

Trust your instincts when you’re hiring new staff and you’ll get it right.

Organising A Killer Camping Trip For The Office

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success. A major key to running a successful organization is hosting successful team-building events for your staff. One such even is a camping trip. The following contributed post is entitled, Organising A Killer Camping Trip For The Office.

Sometimes your workplace needs to take a break and get to know each other from another perspective, rather than by the coffee maker or around the conference table. As a working team, it is important now and again to go out and bond with your work friends to help improve the team work in the office as well as employee morale.

Today we are going to take a look at an awesome idea for a summer getaway with your team: camping. You may think that organising a camping trip will be far too complex and stressful, but it can be a beneficial way to bond and get to know your coworkers. Here are the things you need to do to plan a simple camping trip this year.

Set a Date

The important first step in planning a camping trip for the office is to set a date that works for everyone in the office and stick to it. Create a group chat with the whole of your team and give them a selection of dates to choose from. Ideally, going on a thursday and returning on a saturday works best because it still allows everyone in the workplace to spend time with their families on Sunday. Once you have a date everyone agrees on, you can set it in the calendar, choose a campsite and get ready to go.

Gear

When heading for a team camping trip, you will likely have to gather some of the supplies yourself, but it is worth asking your team if they have tents and other equipment they can bring along. One great way to create a team feel for the camping trip is to get some printed tents Here and show off your brand to the world. When gathering gear, remember that you also need to buy cooking gear and food. When deciding on food, a good idea would be to ask every member to bring some food with them which you can cook and share as a camping potluck meal.

Don’t make it too difficult

There will be people in your office who go camping every single weekend, and there will be people in the office who have never been in a tent. When planning a camping trip, it is important that you don’t assume people have been camping before, and also make sure that the campsite you use has facilities such as a toilet and shower for those who need it.

Choose activities

One of the things you need to consider when planning a camping trip is the activities you will partake in during the trip. The best way to go about this is to share the destination with the team in a group chat and simply ask people to come up with ideas they want to try. This will ensure that people aren’t forced to do things they don’t want to do, and it will also likely make people more excited to get involved.

Arrange transport

When it comes to your camping trip, the final thing which needs to be arranged is the transport. The easiest way for you to do this is to arrange for a coach to drop you off and pick you up at a certain time and day. A coach is an affordable way to travel and it will make things less stressful for everyone.

How to Actually Relax after a Long Week at Work

Two of the focuses of my blog are Career Discussions and Health/Wellness. One of the keys to being successful in your career is understanding how to rejuvenate yourself. This process of self-renewal can pay tremendous dividends. The following contributed post is entitled, How to Actually Relax after a Long Week at Work.

If you feel as though you are constantly tense at the weekend, then you will know how frustrating this can be. You may feel as though you never get the chance to unwind and that you also find it difficult to switch off too.

Disconnect from your Phone

It doesn’t matter how you choose to unwind because it will be difficult to do if you are always thinking about work. If you want to help yourself here, turn your phone off as soon as you leave the office. If you have a work phone, try and leave it at your desk. This will really help you to switch off from work and it will also help you to have some more personal time too.

Run yourself a Warm Bath

Believe it or not, one of the best ways for you to relax after a long day would be for you to have a warm bath. You can wash the tension away from your body and you can also calm your mind too. If you do decide to have a bath, then light some candles and buy some bath salts. This will boost your experience and it will also help you to feel well and truly pampered.

Try and Workout

Working out is another fantastic way for you to release those endorphins. Science has proven time and time again that exercise is a great way to relieve stress and that it’s great for your mental health. If you want to get the maximum benefit, then consider taking part in a team sport. This will help you to be more social and it will also help you to connect with other people in your local area.

Get out of the House

A change in scenery can really make a change to being cooped up inside all day. If the weather is fine, then try and seek out nature. Get out a chair, sit in the garden, and breathe in the fresh air. If you have some nice flower seeds, get them planted out or even try and rearrange the hanging basket outside your front door. Little things like this can take your mind away from work and bring it back to the present moment.

Put on Some Music

Play some soothing tunes and have a moment to yourself. The music that you listen to can influence your mood and you would be surprised at how much it could help you to relax. If you are finding it hard to choose a playlist that’s suitable then consider using Spotify as there are plenty on there to choose from.

Play a Game

Playing games like the ones on wombatcasino.com can help you to forget all about work. Try and find one that you can really get into. When you do, you’ll feel all the stress from the week leave your body and this can help you to maintain a more positive mindset. It’s also ideal if you want to have a relaxing night in.

Tips that will Help you to Avoid Unemployment Depression

Two of the focuses of my blog are Career Discussions and Health/Wellness. For many, jobs aren’t just a way to earn a living, they’re also critical pieces of our lives. Losing them can thus have multiple effects on our personal well beings besides just the loss of income. It’s important to understand how to fall in depression. The following contributed post is entitled, Tips that will Help you to Avoid Unemployment Depression.

* * *

If you are out of work then you will know how frustrating this can be. You may feel as though your life has been turned upside down and that there is no possible way for you to get out of the rut you are in. This is not the case at all, and when you are able to refocus your attitude, you’ll soon find that you are able to come back bigger and stronger.

Step Back

Nobody likes losing their job. If you are unemployed then you should never look at yourself as a failure. Instead, think of your time off as a mini vacation. You could probably do with the rest anyway. Use the first few days to catch up on some rest, watch a few movies or even finish the DIY project you have going on in the garage. As long as you are doing something meaningful and enjoying your time then you are helping to put yourself in a good place.

Don’t get too Comfortable

When you’ve relaxed for a few days, it is time for you to start turning things around. Use your time wisely and get up at the same time every day. It also helps to prepare yourself for the job that you want as well. This could include taking a training course, or even going through your CV so you can add any new skills. There are plenty of services that can help you to craft the perfect CV, and when you use them, you will soon find that it is easier than ever for you to make yourself appear friendly and professional.

What you’re Feeling is Normal

Losing your job can feel like losing a loved one. A lot of people go through the grieving process when they become unemployed, and this is completely normal. If you want to help yourself then you need to let it happen. When you’ve worked through the emotions, you can then pick up the pieces and move on. Sometimes you’ll need to push yourself more than others if depression is holding you back, but you need to know that what you’re going through right now won’t last forever and that better times are just around the corner. If you lost your job as the result of personal injury, then it’s well worth contacting https://www.bellevuetrialattorney.com/.

Speak with Friends and Family

A lot of people experience a high amount of guilt when they lose their job. They feel as though they should isolate themselves and they also feel as though they shouldn’t talk to their family or friends about it too. This should never be the case, and at the end of the day, you need a support network now more than ever.

https://pexels.com/photo/adult-alone-blur-close-up-1172207/

Network

Another thing that you can do is network with other people. When you do, you can then find out if there are any other opportunities in your local area and you can even chat with people who are in the same industry as you. This will help you to broaden your horizons, and it will give you a more positive outlook in the future.

When Remote Work Goes Wrong

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success and a key focus is Career Discussions. Allowing your staff to work remotely is double-edged sword. It can boost productivity and it cause a decrease in productivity as well. It’s something that has to be properly managed. The following contributed post is entitled, When Remote Work Goes Wrong.

* * *

Image Source

Not so long ago, remote options seemed like the holy grail of the working world. For the average workforce, there could be nothing better than the security of set salaries and the freedom to work when it suited. And yet, as recently as the last two years, remote work has become just another way that we do business.

Now, 70% of workers spend some time operating remotely. In large part, this is because employers noticed how beneficial it can be. Employees get to manage their life/work balance at last, while employers get to enjoy the benefit of increased employee satisfaction and productivity Not to mention that remote work can help to reduce the prices which come with a commercial space and even the need to waste time finding the perfect business premises in the first place.

But, for all the articles boasting about the benefits of this way of working, there’s little mention about what can go wrong. And, sadly, remote work can go very wrong if you aren’t careful, especially during the transition stage. That doesn’t mean it can’t still work for you, but it does mean you might want to consider the following before you implement it.

The question of health and safety

As a manager, you have a responsibility to keep your team safe. That applies whether they work in the office at home. As such, you should seek home working-specific health and safety training courses like those offered by EssentialSkillz straight away, and make sure to apply that new knowledge to your changing arrangements. Make sure, too, that you ask employees to assess their work environments, and let you know about any risks so that you can take the correct action.

The small matter of rules

You should also consider rules as you make this switch. If you still expect your team to work office hours, for example, you must make it clear to them. Equally, be transparent about things like uniform. If you have conference calls, the last thing that you want is a remote worker going live in a hoodie and sweatpants. To avoid that, be clear from day one that you still expect your team to present a professional image, even when they’re at home.

Can’t forget about contact

Contact is also vital. When your team isn’t next door whenever you need them, it can cause issues and delays which look terrible to customers. This is especially the case if you can’t get hold of remote team members for extended periods. Avoid that by implementing contact plans ahead of time. It’s always a good idea to conduct a morning meeting with remote staff using programs like Skype to start communications in the right way each day. You should then also ask every team member to stay logged onto a program like Google Hangouts, which will allow you to get hold of them at a moment’s notice whenever you need. And, that can go a considerable way towards smoothing the remote journey for all.

You’ve Lost Your Job- What Happens Next?

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success, and a key focus is Career Discussions. Most everyone will experience the loss of a job for one reason or another. If you’re fortunate, you will receive a timely warning so that you can prepare for the loss of income. Some people aren’t so lucky and the loss is sudden. In either case it’s important to know what to do in of a job loss. The following contributed post is entitled, You’ve Lost Your Job- What Happens Next?

Image: https://www.pexels.com/search/stress/

Losing your job is up there with one of the most stressful life events a person can go through. In an instant, everything is at risk- your home, your car, your credit score where you can quickly fall into debt. There’s a hugely emotional side of things where you might be wondering how you’re going to look after your family and pets, not to mention a loss of identity. Our jobs are more than just jobs, they’re part of who we are. And so losing that, your security blanket, it’s a difficult pill to swallow. If you’ve found yourself in this position, perhaps due to redundancies in the company or them going into administration, or maybe due to a fault of your own, here’s what you need to do next.

Claim any money you’re entitled to
Have you had to leave your job because you got injured? If it’s someone else’s fault then you might be entitled to compensation, make sure you’re getting what you’re owed. For example, if you were hurt while riding your motorbike then a lawyer like https://www.braininjurylawofseattle.com/seattle-truck-accident-lawyer/ would work your case for you, if it was at work then you’d have to go down the relevant channels. This money can help you with your recovery and can be a lifesaver while you’re out of work. While you don’t have a job, you may also be entitled to help from the government. See if there are any welfare or benefits you can claim to cover your basic costs and keep you going while you find something new.

Take a temporary job
Finding another job can be a lengthy process. Depending on the career you’re in and the job roles you’re going for, it can take time for a position to come up, the employer to go through CVs, call people in for interviews and eventually start. You may also get rejected a number of times along the way. For this reason, it can be worth taking a temporary job– any job you can get in the meantime. As the saying goes, it’s easier to find work when you’re in work. It might not be what you want to be doing or a long term job for you but any source of regular income is better than none. Whether it’s delivering pizzas, working in retail or cleaning, see if there’s anything available right now that you can take.

Create new sources of income
Going forward, it’s so worth building additional sources of income so you’re financially protected if you ever lose your job again in the future. Establish and monetise a blog, build up a good reputation as a freelancer or start a home business. These things will take time to get going, but you could run them alongside your new job when you finally get to work. It’s extra money for now, and if you need them in the future it’s a source of income you can rely on.

Creating A Functional Working Environment For Your Staff

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success and two key focuses are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. A key to your organization excelling creating optimal conditions for your functions. Doing so will ensure your organization’s survival. The following contributed post is entitled, Creating A Functional Working Environment For Your Staff.

Your staff are an important asset to the business, they keep everything ticking over and hopefully, they work on improving the financial success and reputation of the company. So it’s important to create a functional working environment and here is how to do just that.

Image Source

Encourage Organized Spaces

The place in which your staff work in is highly important because they’re probably in it for the majority of their day. So it has to be an inviting space that staff enjoy working in, rather than one that they dread. One of the ways you can do this is by encouraging your staff to be more organized with their spaces. Set some rules about desk areas and what should be on the desk and what shouldn’t. Give your staff the ability to buy some storage units and other accessories for their working areas so that files and other documents and equipment can be stored away securely and out of sight. A clean and tidy environment will also help with improving the workplace productivity.

Bring In Light & Nature

Two of the most mood-boosting features that you can have in your workspace is natural light and nature. Natural light can transform the look and feel of a space, so get as much of it in as possible. Clear windows from anything that could block out the light and get blinds that allow light to shine through, rather than blocking it out completely. Think of the lighting in your office too, as a bright white light can be quite clinical.

Indoor plants are becoming increasingly popular both in households and businesses, and they create a cleaner atmosphere that you and your staff will be breathing in. Put them in all of the communal areas and encourage your staff to buy for themselves some desk plants to boost their own happiness for their work area.

Keep Communal Areas Pristine

Communal areas are going to get messy, so it’s important to hire in the right cleaners to keep the place in top condition. You should also think about the decor and furnishings that you put into your office. Get some comfortable sofas in the breakout space and some art up on the wall to add colour. Ensure your kitchens are stocked with all the crockery and cutlery need and make sure your bathrooms are regularly checked and maintained. For communal bathrooms, restroom mats are useful to have in order to reduce odours and keep everything hygienic.

Invest In Technology

Technology is certainly an important tool that many businesses need and so it’s beneficial that as a company you are investing in the right technology for your staff to be able to complete tasks as best as they can. And sometimes, lacking certain programmes or work stations can cause problems and there’s even a chance it can hinder the workplace progress overall.

Creating a functional working environment should always be prioritised. Keep those communal areas clean and promote an organized and tidy workspace that everyone can enjoy.
