What can you buy for £50?

£50 joining fee available for a limited period from March 2014 until 30th April 2014.

Many years ago (1997), an investment of £199.75 (inc Vat) [& tax deductible = zero cost] secured my position with a company called Telecom plus Plc (often referred to as Utility Warehouse).

I had no idea what I was joining, but something felt right, just how right would be proved by 2006, when I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

At the time, I was hugely active within networking circles; attending events all over the place at every time of the day, running them too, but that all came to halt over a three month period as I succumbed to the pain and has to be said confusion that my body was impacting upon me in a negative way.

Many tests later diagnosis was made, and referral to a consultant followed – here I have so much praise. Reassurance, guidance, support and solutions to ensure my life could continue in a way I would be happy. Drugs were prescribed; some worked, some didn’t, and eventually a balance found that means I could return to contributing to my business and people within.

Strangely, it mirrored the support I have from Telecom plus too, where it has been superb down the years as the business grew and grew; people there were equally concerned, and many stood in and supported my team members during my enforced absence. Fantastic.

Now almost seven years later, I can look back and say thank you to the many, who gave me direct support both health and business wise during that period. It is a great feeling.

It is something I want to share with others too.

None of us know what the future holds, whether it is our livelihoods, our pensions, our health and even family matters?

The fact, I made a decision, which in hindsight appears very prescient, means I have no major worries today.

That investment of £199.75 has been paid back so many times over regardless of the fact it is tax deductible = zero cost.

Here’s the best part, for the month of August 2013, it is just £50 (inc Vat) [& tax deductible = zero cost] to follow in my foot steps and those of many others and create a new part time business, which will eventually grow into a substantial benefit to you and your family and friends.

Presently, the company is seeking people to join the business on a part time basis and enjoy the success that is available.

There are share options, car plans (two), holiday promotions, cash promotions and overall a 13 part pay plan.

The support provided to people joining the business is quite comprehensive and training too:

HO Support available six days a week
Training [free to attend] – online and classroom
Support Network [multiple]
Annual Conference – Express Day
Six Monthly conference – Kick Off Seminars
Second Six Monthly conference – Summer Seminars
Tele Seminars every week
Weekly Newsletter
HotNews Updates
Back Office access called Extranet
Monthly Business meetings and business presentations [called Cops and pre-cops (as needed)] – 50 locations
Mentors – direct support in your locale.

There are countrywide presentations, once a month at over 50 different locations and one is bound to be near you.

There are immediate financial rewards for personal activity (Fast Start Bonus), and some of these are as follows:

Gather Three Customers during your first 60 days = £100
Gather Six Customers during your first 90 days = £150
Gather Twenty-Five Customers during your first 180 days = £250
Gather Fifty Customers during your first 365 days = £500

These bonus payments are in addition to standard Customer Gathering Bonus of up to £50 per customer and ongoing commission on usage.

The personal development provided by the company is brilliant too, and improves each year.

And all this is available for an investment of £50 and regular 5 to 10 hours a week activity on your part.

A lot has been covered here, and there is more to see.

Some lottery tickets

or how about the start of a new future that you can create on a part time basis being supported by a successful company?

Zero Hours contracts – self employed without the benefits?

Mike Patterson of Berwins’ Solictors wrote the following and can be contacted by email at mikepatterson@berwin.co.uk

New figures released this week revealed that more than one million UK workers could be employed on zero-hours contracts, which is four times the number initially estimated.

This figure derives from a survey of 1,000 employers carried out by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and has prompted renewed calls for the government to launch a full inquiry into the use of these contracts by employers.

A zero-hours contract is where a person is not contracted to work a set number of hours, and is only paid for the number of hours that they actually work. Used appropriately this type of contract can provide flexibility for employers and workers, and help to create more flexible working opportunities, by allowing employers to staff their workforce according to peaks and troughs in demand.

However, workers on a zero-hours contract are left without guaranteed hours, sick pay or holiday pay. Often they are only told how many hours they will work once the weekly or monthly rota has been confirmed, but are expected to be on call for extra work at short notice. As a result, workers are left vulnerable to sudden reductions in shift patterns and last minute shift cancellations at the discretion of managers, without any entitlement to pay.

Yesterday it emerged that the UK’s largest food chain, McDonald’s, is potentially the biggest zero-hours employer in the private sector with over 82,000 of its staff (90% of the workforce) on the controversial terms.

This follows the announcement that retailer Sports Direct employs around 20,000 of its 23,000 staff on zero-hours contracts, as well as Buckingham Palace which uses them for its 350 summer workers. These contracts are also popular with those employers in the care home, catering and leisure industries.

The CIPD has stressed that there needs to be a closer look on what is meant by a zero-hours contract, the different forms that they take, and clearer guidance on what good and bad practice in their use looks like.

What action the government takes in response, we will have to wait and see.

So my take on this subject is that Zero Hours contracts are self employment by the back door, but without the benefit of tax breaks. Now that is quite worrying.

Mike quotes a recent survey suggesting there are 1 million people on these deals, which rather confirms the suspicion of many that there are nearer 4 million unemployed in the UK presently

I also look at the situation slightly differently too, since many of these people may not have work of a day to day basis. That surely provides the opportunity to use that time effectively elsewhere for personal profit?

One idea could be to create new and additional income streams.

Here is one that I became involved in many years ago:

www.future-biz.co.uk

An award winning company with full training and support.
Lots of promotions and benefits too
Two car plans, plus lots, lots more.
Totally flexible hours too, so can be worked as and when you are available. Fits around Zero Hours.

Please take a look, you could be pleasantly surprised?
