Everyone’s looking for a great deal these days! But no one has time to go from website to website to find the best prices or the best deals.

BRIDEY ORTH

When People Pay Their Monthly Bills Shane Douglas, one of the home-based business industry’s top income earners and trainers, has assembled an experienced team to teach you how to become successful in your own home-based business. Visit www.BTHE1.com

I

t’s a fact that everyone has utility bills: Electric, gas, cell phone, TV, Internet, and the list goes on. And no matter how financially challenged or wealthy someone may be, these essential services are needed and can never be paid off; everyone will have to pay for them for the rest of their lives out of necessity. So when a global communications company that is open in 23 countries worldwide and endorsed by one of the wealthiest people in the world, who featured this company on his hit primetime reality TV show, says you should find out more, would you want to hear more about it? What if this same company said they’d pay you generously for helping others get paid when they pay their monthly bills, would you want to know even more? Shane Douglas did, and it’s paid off in an incredible way for him. It’s been seven years since this Idaho native, coming from a town of 1,500 people, started his home-based business helping people match and surpass their current monthly income, plus get paid every time they pay their own monthly bills.

I don’t sell anything; I just simply show people how to get paid every month for services they were going to use anyway and teach others to do the same.” “I was tired of all the promises from other companies that say you can become wealthy overnight only to find out you have to sell and teach others how to sell products that are either over- priced or only appeal to a small percentage of the population,” says Shane. “Our company is different: We only offer services that people pay on monthly basis like gas, electricity, TV, internet, cell phones, home security and more. And I don’t sell anything; I just simply show people how to get paid every month for services they were going to use anyway and teach others to do the same.”

Shane explains that recent deregulation of Energy providers around the country has opened up a significant opportunity for more people to choose who they get their service with. “People like to know they have a choice,” Shane says. “This, in turn, creates more opportunity for entrepreneurs to grow their business with our company.” “In this declining economy, home-based businesses are on the rise. People want to supplement their income and possibly replace their incomes while working from home. So the opportunity to get paid every single month when someone turns on their lights, heats their home, uses their cellphone watches TV, logs onto the Internet or arms their security system is a no-brainer,” he says. The way Shane has grown to be one of the top income earners and trainers in this business is by following the system the company offers all of its independent business owners (IBOs). He says that he tells people they can get the same services from the same major service providers and get paid. Then, according to Shane, all he does is direct them to his online store, which is included in the company’s start-up business package. “Our system is 100% automated for you,” he explains. “Simply direct potential customers to your online store that the company sets up for you, and they can sign up for any of these services with many of the major companies that are available in their area. When they sign up on your online store, you receive a residual commission every month when they pay their bills. It’s that simple.” The key to his success, he says, is that he doesn’t complicate his business; he just goes out and shares the company’s program and his personal story. “It might not be sexy—it’s utilities after all—but it is simple to share the story. Everyone can relate, because everyone has to pay these bills,” he says. “I’ve been fortunate to have had major success with this company by taking action and so has my team. We’ve grown to over 200,000 IBOs in our group in the last seven years all by doing the same thing: keeping it simple.” Shane is looking to mentor someone new in 2013 to the same level of success he has had, would you like it to be you? To see more information about this company go to www.BTHE1.com. Shane and his proven leadership, who started out just like you, are here to answer your questions and help you get started.

MELANIE HESS

From Rat Race to Relaxation

Kai Deering finally has the time, the money, and the meaningful life she’s always wanted No one would say that Kai Deering isn’t a hard worker. As a corporate sales professional, Deering made an impressive six figure income, but it came at a huge cost, as she worked from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. five or six days each week. When she met her goals, her bosses just upped her quotas, so she thought being self-employed in her sales career would give her more freedom. But running her own office, doing all her own paperwork and trying to stay caught up just made the time disappear even faster. Unfortunately, after ten years on the corporate treadmill, she was exhausted and unfulfilled. She was grabbing naps in her car whenever she could, she had no time with her husband, and many days she didn’t even see the sun—despite living in California! But the last straw came when she met someone who was doing a job similar to hers—only he was in his 70s. “I remember thinking ‘this is it? I’m going to do this ‘til I die?’” Deering says. “I knew I didn’t want to be working like this at 70. I knew that on my deathbed I was not going to say, ‘I wish I would’ve worked more’.” Deering was already a member of LegalShield, a company that offers its members access to lawyers and legal advice for a low monthly rate, when a friend’s roommate suggested she try to build a career with the company. But Deering kept putting her off. Finally, in a last ditch attempt to keep her friend out of her hair, Deering agreed to attend a LegalShield convention. What she saw blew her away! “I’d never met people with time AND money,” Deering laughs. “I knew people who had time, or people with meaningful, significant jobs who didn’t make a lot of money, but I didn’t think you could have money and significance, let alone time freedom!” At the LegalShield convention, Deering was surrounded by people who were helping others, making money AND doing it all on their own terms. She was thrilled, and decided to see what kind of business she could build with LegalShield. “I started by making an extra $500 a month part-time,” Deering says. “And from there it grew: $14,000 a year, than $37,000, then $69,000. In my fifth year I made $98,000.” As her LegalShield income continued to grow from there, Deering was able to quit her corporate sales career and transition to working from home. Now, she says, she’s enjoying her life in ways she’d always hoped. She gets to spend time with her husband, who also works from home, and she was finally able to adopt two rescue dogs, something she never Photography by Jen Good Photography

would’ve done when she was working 12-hour days. “The dogs sleep in a bed on my desk,” Deering explains. “I get to see my husband all the time. Really, LegalShield gave me my life back.” Deering also says she enjoys her house, her car, and the other things that money can buy, but she knows that money isn’t what’s really important. “You can’t take the ‘stuff ’ with you, it’s all about the experiences that you can give to other people.” she says. “I love that I was able to treat my mom to trips to Cancun and Disneyland, places she’d never been. And when my mom had a health scare in 2010, then knee replacement surgery last month, I was the only one with the time freedom to go and be with her and not worry about my income skipping a beat.” Now, as a leader of her own LegalShield team, Deering says her favorite thing is watching her team members succeed. “The best success stories now are about people firing their bosses and earning their BMW car bonuses,” she says. Since LegalShield is her first home business, Deering leads by example. She is available for her team, she has been in the trenches, and says she will never expect anyone to do anything she hasn’t already done. Having seen how her LegalShield business has changed her life, she believes that it can help anyone create a lifestyle that provides time, money, and meaning. “We know this works,” she says. “It’s working for thousands of people. Now we want to know if you want to bring your energy and

enthusiasm to our system.” While training is a big part of her focus, Deering also likes to make things fun. She hosts parties for her team and has taken them to wine tastings, ropes courses, ball games and even on a cruise. And after a decade, the joy of helping others continues to inspire her. “The income is great, but the icing on the cake is that, with this business, you can only get ahead if you help other people,” Deering says. “In corporate America you’re out to crush the other person. With LegalShield, everyone works together and you’re providing a service that people need. It’s a win for everyone.” Interested in more info about creating a new lifestyle from home with LegalShield?

SUCCESS STORY

M

ark Smith and Tammy Smith have it all. A dream house in Hawaii, property on the island of Turks & Caicos, luxury cars, and a more-than-comfortably sized bank account. They also have plenty of time to stay at home with their family, homeschooling their children and traveling multiple times each year. Mark and Tammy both come from military families, and Mark is a highly decorated Navy combat medic who spent nearly a decade with the Marine infantry. During his military career, Mark and Tammy started a home business in a relationship marketing company. For 11 years they built this business, creating their multi-million dollar lifestyle and helping thousands of others on their team find success. But now, even after all their success, they’ve decided to make a complete change in business. Mark says the reason is simple: “After 11 years, we’ve decided to start over because of what we know about Nerium.” For Mark and Tammy, their new company represents an even bigger and better opportunity. After years in the industry, Mark knows exactly what makes a successful home business. Nerium, he says, has the five characteristics that every business needs to be a successful world-class company and provide success to its brand partners, not only for the short-term, but over the long haul.

28

Management and Leadership Jeff Olson is the Founder and CEO of Nerium, and has been a mentor to the Smiths for 12 years. “I know what Jeff is about and I know where the company is going because of that,” Mark says. “With Jeff ’s leadership, I believe that Nerium is going to be a multi-billion dollar brand.” Mark says that Jeff ’s dedication to the company shows in the long hours he spends traveling and helping to build the business himself, sometimes spending several weeks each month on the road. “Jeff has built a unique bridge—where the partners in the field and the corporate office work together,” Mark explains. “Jeff listens to what the brand partners tell him they need, and he acts on that right away.” Olson says it’s all part of being someone who does things right the first time. “I’ve always prided myself on being a person who does it right,” Olson said. “I don’t hype. I promote on reality. I build a solid framework and then I lay things on top of it.”

Product The skincare industry is booming, with baby boomers and others paying big money to look younger. But in the skincare industry it’s hard to find solid, visible results that are backed by science. In the case of Nerium’s product, the results speak for themselves and the science behind the product confirms that this is something special. “To me, this product was a dream come true,” said Olson. “In relationship marketing—in any industry— you rarely have a break-through product with a price point below the other products on the market.” Nerium’s flagship product, say Mark and Jeff, was everything a relationship marketer could want. Thanks to the results that show right on your face, it’s a product in a popular industry that keeps people coming back again and again. Compensation Plan Nerium’s compensation plan, Mark explains, has been designed by people who have built businesses and know the industry in and out.


g n i h

YOU NEED AFTER YEARS OF SUCCESS, Mark and Tammy Smith are excited about starting over with Nerium

“We encourage our brand partners to engage their families in their business.” “We have the elements in place to allow the average part-timer to get into profit mode very quickly,” Mark points out. “Brand partners can get their own product for free every month. And with our Nerium Gives Back program, they can earn free inventory for life.” The 7 different ways to earn, says Mark, are key to building a strong income. “Our compensation plan allows you to earn money up front,” he says, “while at the same time you’re building a residual income that will pay you month after month.” Nerium also offers two big bonuses: iPads and Lexuses. Brand partners have the ability to earn a free iPad in their first few months. In addition to being the perfect tool for both business and fun, the iPad automatically syncs with Nerium’s training materials, so you always have the latest business-building tools at your fingertips. And it doesn’t stop there. The Lexus car bonus is another huge perk. “Over a thousand people in our first 13 months have qualified for a Lexus car bonus,” Mark says.

Success Systems and Training Creating an incredible experience for the customers and the brand partners is top priority for the leadership at Nerium. To that end, they’ve developed a system that any full-time, part-time, or spare time brand partner can use. The system starts with a launch kit that’s full of tools to help you succeed. “You get the most advanced technology platforms in our industry,” Mark says. “A website, automated emails, videos, and a training system to truly help you build your business.” Nerium also wants to give you the tools and the knowledge to share your business through Social Media. Their social media system allows you to automatically post Nerium videos directly to Facebook or Twitter. And their phone app lets you run your entire business right from your smartphone! Culture In addition to providing the tools you need to succeed in business, Jeff Olson and the other

members of the leadership team want to help you succeed in life. As Mark says, you can have a great product, and a great compensation plan, but you have to have the kind of culture that sustains a company and its brand partners. “As you build your business with Nerium there are achievement programs, where you’ll have oneone-monthly mentoring,” Mark explains. “Nerium is committed to personal development.” And the company prides itself on building a family-friendly culture. “We’re building a company of people who are loving, caring and sharing,” Mark says. “Our culture drives our company. We encourage our brand partners to engage their families in their business.” For Mark and Tammy, helping their team grow is one of their highest goals. “As a brand partner with Nerium, you can take advantage of everything this company has to offer,” Mark says. “Your financial and personal success are a top priority.” n

GOODBYE, measly MLM income.

HELLO, $60,000 PER MONTH. SEE THE SYSTEM THAT

CHANGED THE LIVES

OF THIS “ONCE BROKE” COUPLE.

W

e’ve all had weekday mornings when we open our eyes before sunrise and want nothing more than to stay under the warm covers to continue that wonderful dream that was so rudely interrupted by the blare of the alarm clock. Thing is, we can’t. Most of us crawl out of bed and begin the agonizing process of getting ready for another day at the office. As much as we wish we could, we can’t just roll over and drift back to sleep. Aaron and Sophia Rashkin can—and do. After starting an online home business, the couple’s lifestyle was transformed into one of those fantasies most people only dream about while they sleep. Aaron and Sophia have hundreds of thousands of dollars tucked away in the bank, a thriving business that continues to soar, and two boys who get their parents’ undivided attention every single day. “Our new business is completely life-changing,” Aaron says. “How many people can say they wake up every morning without the financial pressure of today’s economy?” Things weren’t always so nice for the Rashkins. Aaron and Sophia were top leaders in a traditional network-marketing company where they worked tirelessly to achieve a lifestyle of total independence. Unfortunately, the hard work wasn’t paying off. Though the couple was

among the top earners in the company, they quickly found out the phrase “top earner” is relative. “We worked our tails off but weren’t making the kind of money we wanted,” Aaron says. “Our monthly checks were just enough to cover the mortgage, and we were among the more successful people in the company.” It wasn’t just the money that had Aaron and Sophia frustrated. There was something far more valuable at stake— time with their children. The Rashkins put in countless hours every week building their network-marketing business, and it came at a price. They desperately wanted more time with their eight-year-old son and had another baby boy on the way. Aaron and Sophia knew they needed a change. “Our business ate up all of our time and caused a lot of stress,” Aaron says. “We weren’t able to bond with our boys because we were always doing business. For the amount of money we made, it wasn’t worth it.” But today, life is very different—no cold calls, no hitting up family and friends, and no home parties. “It’s a real business, and it earns real income,” Aaron says. Aaron and Sophia’s new business has given them the lifestyle they’ve always wanted. There are five digits on their monthly paycheck, and with a business that’s growing every day, it’s easy for the Rashkins to take a few weeks off here and there to relax at home or go on vacation. In the past year, they’ve visited the Dominican Republic, Lake Tahoe, Austin, Las Vegas, San Diego, New York, and Florida, and so far, they have trips to Asia, the Greek Islands, and Hawaii scheduled for next year. More importantly, though, their family never takes a backseat to work. The couple has breakfast with their two boys every morning, and because they can afford a full-time nanny to take care of their youngest son, Aaron and Sophia are able to attend every event at their older son’s school—something few other parents can do. Aaron and Sophia stress that their situation isn’t unique to them. “Anyone with a sincere desire to be successful, who is willing to put forth the effort, can achieve their dreams through this business. We have countless members on our team who are experiencing life-changing results in a timeframe that’s worth getting excited about,” Sophia explains. “There are so many people making big-time money here right out of the gate,” Aaron adds. “What took us five years to make in our previous company we made in less than a year here. There are team members six and seven months into the business who are earning more than they thought possible. This business is the real deal.” n Go to www.WealthWithoutMLM.com or call 888.879.4441 to learn more about the home business that allows Aaron and Sophia Rashkin plenty of time with their family and has eliminated their financial worries for good.
