Did You Launch Your Business or Did You Just Join a Company?

Hello there good people. I want to talk to the new network marketers out there. Some of you are cheating yourselves. You are not taking advantage of everything that is required of having a legitimate business online. Some of you are just sitting there, hoping that money is going to fall in your lap and you are thinking that you don’t have to do much of anything because your business is online. Well guess what, folks, you’re 100% WRONG!!!

Just because your business is online doesn’t mean that you should do less work than you would a regular job. The problem most new online marketers have is starting their business- getting their business off the ground. So the topic of discussion today is “Did you launch your business or did you just join a company?”

Now, everyone knows that there are a lot of MLM (multi- level marketing) companies out there that encourage new members to join. However, once that person joins the company, he/she does little or nothing until maybe the 25th of the month and then does 5 days worth of work and quits on the 30th day because they claim to have made no money. I call these type of people flippant and I have no sympathy for them. As an online marketer, I have heard every excuse in the book from my downlines of multiple companies. They are all the same:

“oh, i just don’t have time”

“everybody thinks it’s a scam”

“nobody wants to join”

“I don’t know how to sell”

“i don’t really like talking to people”

“if i have a home meeting, they might rob me”

STOP WITH THE EXCUSES ALREADY!! You need to gain some accountability and control over your situation. Hoping and praying that money will fall in your lap is almost impossible. “Faith without work is dead”- James 2:26. So if any of you are thinking about joining a company, there are a few things you need to remember and pass along to your downline.

Launch your business the correct way. You need to tell everyone about your business. When you join, most sponsors will tell you to make a list of your friends and family. But I would say that you need to make a list consisting of more people than that. Tell EVERYBODY  about your business. This is what you would consider your grand opening. See, if you were to start a ‘brick and mortar’ business such as a restaurant, you wouldn’t just tell your friends and family now would you? Of course not! At least I hope you wouldn’t. The key here is to act like the CEO of a million dollar company. Just because you may have paid a few dollars to join the company, doesn’t mean that you have to put a few dollars worth of work into the company. Launch parties are also good ideas. Now, this party doesn’t have to be the stuffy, boring, party where you invite friends over just to watch a lame video about the company you joined. BOOOOO!! That’s a quick way to turn your guests off. Instead, why don’t you have a themed grand opening party. Have Sangria Sundays or Latina Lunes, or Taco Tuesday, or Wild Wings Wednesday (Don’t steal my ideas- they are copywritten…I’m kidding lol) But just liven it up a bit and don’t make yourself seem so anxious to make money because people can sense the desperation.

Create some hours of operation. This is something that every business has, so why should you make an exception for your online business? Your hours don’t have to be “Mon-Fri 7am to 7pm” no. This is just a schedule for YOU! Choose your times wisely. Make note of when you are going to post on your social media sites. When are you going to blog? What days will you have your home meetings? When is your company’s next conference going to be? What time should you be on your company’s training calls? What days will you do webinars? Etc, etc, etc. Type your schedule out and hang it on your wall.

Understand that your business is going to have expenses. Referencing the ‘”Cashflow Quadrant” from Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you are now on the right side of the quadrant and you are considered a business owner and an investor. People on the right side of that quadrant don’t complain about tiny costs, especially when they know that that tiny investment will potentially earn them millions. A broke person always asks, “How much is this going to COST me?” but entrepreneurs always ask, “how much is this going to MAKE me?” It is imperative that you start thinking like an entrepreneur or will fail!!!

Last. but not least, GOALS. You have to set up a forecast. If you can’t see where your business is going or where it’s going to be within the next year, why should anybody follow you? Why should anybody believe in you or what you are promoting? Set an example for your downline. If you choose to do a vlog challenge, let that very first video be your ‘why’. Let the world know why you decided to start your own business. And don’t just say its because you need money- duh! That’s just like going on an interview and giving that exact same stupid answer. Make your ‘why’ compelling because I’m pretty sure there are thousands of people that share your sentiments. Or maybe someone will want to live vicariously. Hey, give them a reason to want to walk in your shoes. Always remember that it’s not about you and it’s not about making money. It’s about helping others.

Join Wake Up Now for FREEEE!!!

I’ve been hearing a lot of nasty tasteless comments about Wake Up Now. People are calling it “SCAM” “PYRAMID SCHEME” and “UNETHICAL”. Well I am writing this article to clear the air for everyone who is muddling through their allergic reactions toward multi-level marketing companies; one in particular, Wake Up Now!

What is Wake Up Now?

Wake Up Now is exactly as its logo states: a software solutions company for a better life. What this means is that the company provides software that help people save money, manage money, and potentially make money simultaneously. I guess the “make money” part of that description is what makes most people cringe. So let me go ahead and tell you a little bit about the products. Did you hear that, REAL PRODUCTS!

TAXBOT- The BEST product (in my opinion) that allows you to keep track of your receipts and business expenses. IRS states that you can deduct meals and entertainment as long as you talk about business within a 24 hour time period. Many people are not cognizant of this  and they fail to write off these deductions. Research shows that 84% of business owners overpay their taxes. If you are not recording your spending down to the tee, you are in jeopardy of an audit and this also means that you are not maximizing your deductions. Taxbot allows you to save your receipts. Most receipts are lost or they fade over time. With Taxbot, you are able to take pictures of your receipts and they are stored in “the cloud”,  automatically organizing themselves in preparation for tax time 🙂 Some of you are saying, “Well I’ll just print off my credit card statements.” Sure, go ahead! But if you do not record your deductions at that very point in time (which most people do not), there is a 90% chance that you will not recollect the information. Thus, you will lose that deduction and the IRS can and WILL take your money without warning or notification… Watch this video                                                                                                      


Wake Up Now Finance allows you to manage all of your credit cards, create a budget, track your spending, and get out of debt in half the time.  Once you create your budget, you will receive email notifications, telling you when you have gone over your budget or when you are close to over spending .

The Wake Up Now compensation plan is operated by volume. The more volume you have, the more money you will make. For instance, the Platinum membership is $99 and each IBO is worth 90 volume. Well you need 90 volume to start receiving commission.  If you join Wake Up Now as a free Preferred Customer, you will not have any volume. Thus, you are ineligible to receive any commission. This is why it is highly recommended that you join as a Platinum member.

What will I get as a FREE Preferred Member?

As a Preferred Member of Wake Up Now, you will have access to all Wake Up Now (WUN) products at the retail price.  So, as I stated above, if you wanted to buy some Awaken Arabic Black Coffee as a Preferred Member, the cost would be $29.95. If you were a Platinum Member, it would only costs $16.00.  You will also have access to the HUB Marketplace where you can shop til’ you drop, saving hundreds of dollars at the stores where you already shop.  You’ll get access to Deal Stream where FREE deals appear every day. You’ll also have access to WUN Local which is an app that provides you with deals within your zip code from participating restaurants, movie theaters, entertainment, and the big kahuna- grocery coupons!! But most importantly, if you are an IBO of another company, I highly reccommend that you join WUN as a preferred customer just to get the Taxbot software so that you can maximize your tax deductions. Who wouldn’t want to join as a free customer? Ha!

So go ahead and click


to sign up as a Free Preferred Member and start enjoying  some of the amazing perks and products that Wake UP Now has to offer.

Middle class underestimates the wealth building power of referral marketing… WORLD CLASS knows referral marketing creates millionaires

The masses have been ridiculing and criticizing referral marketers for over 50 years. Meanwhile; these highly trained, ferociously dedicated army of entrepreneurs have amassed billions in collective wealth. Their industry includes network/multi-level marketing, direct sales, party/event marketing, affiliate programs and others. Referral marketers don’t have fancy titles or corner offices. Some have mas- ter’s degrees and Ph.D’s, and others are high school dropouts. Their backgrounds span the spectrum and have few common denomina- tors, save one: heart. You don’t have to have an Ivy League education or a million-dollar portfolio to be successful in referral marketing, but you do have to have the heart of a lion. I’ve delivered speeches on mental toughness to some of the most prestigious audiences in the world. I’ve served on boards and committees with executives, movie stars, and even the President of the United States. I have interviewed hundreds of the wealthiest people in the world. After all this experi- ence with and exposure to some of the best and brightest society has to offer, I can state emphatically that referral marketers are the most mentally tough business people on the planet. I’ve had tens of thousands of them in my audiences, and I’ve come to respect this group of freedom fighters like no other. When it comes to mental toughness, they are in a league of their own. They start their business with a few bucks in their pocket and a dream in their heart. Most start out part-time while still employed, and burn the candle at both ends kick- ing, scratching and fighting for their freedom. They are often jeered, scorned and criticized by the masses, yet they keep moving forward boldly and fearlessly like a locomotive thundering down the track. You can mentally beat them, kick them, and discourage them, and they just keep coming back for more. It is easy to ridicule someone chasing success who has not made it yet, and the masses do. The irony is, the general public’s rejection of referral marketers is what eventually makes them so mentally tough! By the time they’ve been rejected a thousand times, it no longer matters. The emotional pain they experience in the early days of recruiting and selling is erased and replaced by the realization that their ability to get rejected and persist is the reason they are able to earn millions of dollars doing it. They awaken to the idea that if you remove rejection from the equa- tion, you remove the opportunity to be rich. Once this paradigm shift occurs, the referral marketer begins to see recruiting and selling as a game, and the more they play, the richer they get. Referral marketing is the best chance for the average person to start a business for a few hundred dollars that has the potential to make them a millionaire, and more people are seeing that every day.

Ways To Save Money While In College

Ways To Save Money While In College

OK guys. I want to tell you exactly how you can start saving money while in college. Now I know you’re young and you just want to be wild and free because you are away from your parents and you think you have no limitations. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but, your parents spend a hell of a lot of money to send you to college. All they want in return is to see their babies grow up and become independent, mature individuals who make smart and wise decisions. If you don’t know how to do this, I have specifically laid out a couple things you can do to start pleasing your parents who already have other important bills to worry about than your frivilous spending: Ok, here we go… ~If the city that your college is in has free things to do, TAKE ADVANTAGE! Often times, big cities such as New York, LA, Atlanta, DC, etc have public transportation. Don’t be afraid to ride the train, bus, or cab becasue that’s the best way to get to know your surroundings. My college was in DC and there were always ways to save money as a college student. My date nights were the best lol! We had the monuments downtown, the Smithsonian museums, the Cherry Blosom festival, White House tours, Washington Harbor, free concerts, celebrity events that I was more than delighted to volunteer,and the parks were actually scenic which made it fun to do any and everything there. So I guess I was lucky to have such a live college city lol   ~DO NOT GET A CREDIT CARD! If you get a credit card and you start spending money that you don’t have, not only will you go into debt, but you will ruin your credit. NewsFlash: the average college graduate leaves college accumulating at least $40,000 in student loan debt which brings their credit score down to about 600 (poor). You don’t want to make your score worst buy spending money that you don’ty have especially if you do not have a source of income to pay it back.   ~Another way to save money while in college is to not buy books from the bookstore. Please listen to me! Understand that any college is a business and they want and need money from you. But realize that you are already paying thousands upon thousands of dollars in tuition. Why the hell can’t you get your books for free? I had a course book that cost around $380. Do you think I paid that ridiculous price? Of course not lol. I went right to Amazon.com and got the exact same book for $35. Ok? Got it? Good 🙂   ~OK you also want to sign up for some rewards programs. Customer rewards programs are usually given by companies that offer discounts on items and send you emails when they have sales. My favorite customer rewards programs are Krogers and DSW. Now I used to work at both of these stores so back in the day, I was getting bookoos of discounts lol. For those of you who don’t know, Kroger is a grocery store, mostly found in the south and DSW stands for Designer Shoe Warehouse. Kroger sends coupons and ad papers to my house every week. Everytime I buy shoes at DSW i get 25% of or 50% off depending on the sale and I am a “Shoe Lover.” When I worked at DSW, I received these discounts on top of a 20% discount on top of clearance. One day I bought some badass heels that were $80 for only $18. OMG i miss working there. So you always want to become custom rewards members to save money.

~Most colleges have laundry rooms in the dorms. That’s cool but what if you have to pay for it and ou don’t have any change? Or maybe you do have change but you want to stretch your last dollars out for groceries? Buy a clothes rack- it shouldn’t be any more than $10. You can wash your clothes and save money by drying your clothes on the rack. GREAT way to save money while in college. This really helped me because my entire school was connected to my ID card (money, food, laundry, building access, etc). So if I didn’t use my last dollars on laundry, I had it for food.

~An article from www.thesimpledollar.com says that another way to save money is to establish a ten second rule while shopping. Whenever you are out shopping on a budget! whatever you have in your cart, you want to take ten seconds before checking out to really think about whether that item is something you need and absolutely have to have right now, or can you wait another week or two to get it. Make wise financial decisions.   ~Other ways to save money would be to clip coupons. Never consider yourself better than anybody just becasue they clip coupons. YOU SHOULD BE CLIPPING THEM TOO! You can save so much money on groceries and other products by doing this and it only takes a clip of some scissors. When you clip coupons, it also forces you to buy groceries which then also obligates you to dine at home. Make some home cooked meals for a change ( you know, if you can cook lol) Fast food restaurants can put you at high risk of becoming a part of the Freshmen 15 so you better watch out.

A few sites to get coupons from are:






~You always want to drink water no matter what. Even if you are out with friends. I know you are probably saying, “Kim, You are wack for this one” Well I want you to think about something… When you are at a restaurant and you order juice, coffee, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages, how much does it cost? between $3 to $10, right? How much is water? Free.99 (tap water of course) But you don’t have money for FIJI Water so we are not even going to go that route. Drinking water is a double whammy- you save money and you stay healthy.   ~Last but not least you want to join a really good internet business. A lot of these businesses have really great coupons, perks, and discounts upon joining. You really want to take advantage of those opportunities. Not only as a way to save money but a way to make money as well. Remember, you are a college student. How much time do you really think you will have for a job? 40hrs/wk?  30hrs/wk? Wouldn’t you like to enjoy your college years and not have to worry about money? If there was a way for you to not have to study all night just to wake up early the next morning and go to work or sleep in on the weekends because Saturday and Sunday are the only days that you don’t have classes… wouldn’t you do it? WELL CHECK THIS OUT… Google is the number one search engine in the world, followed by Youtube, and then Facebook. How many hours a day are you on Facebook? How many times do you look up answers to your homework on Google? And how many videos go viral on youtube everyday?

Get started MAKING MONEY TODAY so you won’t need this list. Tell yourself that you are beyond this list. Get some financial stability and tell this list to ‘hit the road jack!”

Start saving money and making money RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't!
