The is no age limit

Fiona joined our business in July and is a single mum.

As she said at the time: ‘this business is going to give me the flexibility to fit around my kids and that can only be good.’

Who do you know who is a mum or dad with time constraints, who could benefit from a flexible approach such as this?

In August Hayley who is 18 joined and started her training;

In her words: ‘I am learning how to build a business and understand the concept too. So different from school.’

Gerry joined the business in 2008 and this year turned 82:

‘This business pays my mortgage, which still has six years to run, and I am not far off my next promotion’

In fact just five customers, and Fiona and Hayley are the key to his next promotion, who I introduced to the business and placed within his team.

I do this regularly and help business partners grow their team and achieve their promotions. Lots of support and comprehensive training for everyone.

Books, CDs and Publications

Down the years, I have read so many books, listened to CDs and read publications of every variety.

Even after 30 plus years of business experience, I still have books on the go today with at least two being read in each month. Every time I go to an event and there is a book stall, I soon head there and have a browse.

Some books a few pounds and others head into big double figures.

Often it is the smallest book with the biggest impact.

My friend Jackie Barrie produced a series called Little Fish books. They are probably the most well thumbed that reside on my bookshelf. Packed full of tips, tricks and useful ideas.

So which are your favourites and why?

Here are some I suggest should be read and why:

In my business, it appears I have a reputation for knowing how to maximise my income. It is not something I boast about, it was something I heard from a leader when I first started. They all say copy the Leaders and that is what I do.

There are loads more books and I will add to this list from time to time.

So which are your favourites? Please add them to the comments section below, and why not share this blog too?

Growing new income streams

Down the years, many have joined a company and thought: ‘that is me set for life.’

Unfortunately this is no longer true. A job for life no longer exists alongside final pension plans. All consigned to history.

It has meant there has been a change of emphasis, when planning how your life will pan out.

The biggest issue is creating a growing income. Some sectors have not seen a pay rise in over four years, whilst others have seen such minimal rise that are not worth writing about.

Last night, I was speaking to a young lady who has been rewarded with a pay rise of 13p per hour before tax. Her part time job (22 hours) now pays an extra £2.86 per week before tax. Not even enough for a coffee in one of the tax dodging outlets on our High Street.

How can a person be expected to create a future with income like that?

Presently this young lady is around £200 per month short of income, and struggling to find a job that pays more, since employers feel she does not have the qualifications or experience.

I have offered to work with her and help improve the future prospects through support and training, and together we have established a route for the creation of extra monthly income based on part time activity (usually five to ten hours a week), which will continue to grow and grow. There is no cap on earnings.

This excites me, since it shows that multiple income streams is a positive way forward for a person, who previously may not have thought they had a way out of simply surviving.

For some of you, this will be true too, and if this rings a bell, then could I suggest checking out this link: Your route to new income streams there are three boxes to complete and an information pack will be sent to you immediately.

Through this company, I will be helping her become financially free and independent of outside concerns.

Some of her short term goals include:
Having a horse again, so she can go riding.
Having a life, rather than simply surviving.
Create enough income to open an animal sanctuary.
Affording a season ticket at rugby.

These are all attainable goals, and will be her motivation for success.

What goals do you have?

There is clear water ahead as we work together to create a new growing income.

“It’s nearly impossible to get by on only

What are you doing for your
second pay cheque each month?”

 

Creating multiple income streams for a self employed business owner is a must have ………… and soon.

Even better if those extra ones are passive income streams.
[Passive means doing the work once and getting paid again and again]

Further, if you are employed, you too, can create extra income on a part time basis. Find five hours a week and you can be shown how to build an income on a part time basis.

The UK’s number one business in the sector has a low start up fee, and for a short period, it is just £50** instead of the usual £100.

To find out more, why not pay a visit here:

We can discuss the business over the phone and answer any questions arising – the website provided includes three little boxes to complete and I will give you a call.

Rise and Rise of Zero Hours Contracts

Updated details here:

http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/research/briefing-papers/SN06553/zerohours-contracts

Are these contracts positive or negative in your view?

I am aware the Government proposes changes to present legislation to enable those on these contracts can take second or third jobs to ensure they earn some money.

Some already let people take extra work alongside, but not all.

Some additional points.

People on zero hours contracts, do not earn any money, unless called in to work.

As a result, a vast majority have to top up any pay with benefits already.

Also very few are earning sufficient to create any meaningful pension contributions.

Plus most, but not all, prevent people from taking a second job, to earn money.

So when they hear in the moring there is no work available that day – they are stuck.

The impact of zero hours contracts, means tax revenues are lower than expected, hence why the treasury has had to borrow extra money this year.

Are you happy?

Are you happy?

Nothing like being direct, and getting to the crux of the matter, and it could be the reason why you responded to our post – so what I am going to do now is explain more about our business briefly, there is plenty more online for you to browse and digest.

First up, what do we do?

Utility Warehouse is a discount club. It delivers savings across a range of services everyone uses, and that is what makes it so special, since people and businesses do not need to be taught how to use the services and products. For that reason alone, the stickability of the business means it grows and grows.

For example my very first customer, signed up on the 21st November 1997, is still a customer today – it means I have been paid over 200 times for 45 minutes work. So far that one customer has earned me over £1,000. The services they use include phone lines, broadband, mobile, gas and electricity.

They have also referred me to a number of their friends and family too.

Does this make me happy? You bet.

Further they use what is called a CashBack card, which means they spend money in one of our 40 odd partner stores, and receive a discount off their full bill – it makes their money go further.

Does that make my customer happy? You bet.

I still receive commission on the full spend, so I do not lose out.

So what I have described here is a total win-win for both the customer and the distributor.

Secondly, why has this success occurred? So, please read on …………..

There are many reasons, why the distributors, such as myself have ensured the success of the business, and I list a few more here:

  1. Recession proof – everyone wants to save money during the good times & the bad
  2. Hours to suit individual needs – part or full time, so can be added to a core business
  3. FREE local on-going training, plus product focused training & online training
  4. Products and services that are second to none, and easy to promote
  5. Regular increasing income with payment every month without fail
  6. Low once only qualification criteria (just three customers and you can be your first)
  7. On-line shopping mall, internet services, including a range of broadband packages.
  8. Number One CashBack deal in the UK
  9. A caring and very supportive management structure
  10. Product enhancement – the company does not stand still
  11. FREE calls to UK numbers for members
  12. Voted the Number One company in Europe
  13. Company car plans for everyone that wants to qualify
  14. Market share target of 10%, which equates to over 2,400,000 customers
  15. Share options – and the shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange
  16. Year end turnover and profits – up again
  17. Fantastic promotions – family and luxury holidays
  18. Annual and quarterly conferences
  19. Recognition – it is hugely surprising how little thanks is seen in day to day jobs.
  20. 21st century business utilising tablets and Apps to help you grow your income.

So why join The Utility Warehouse and become a business partner? Here are a number of very good reasons, but only you will know which ones apply and motivate you:

  • Your pay rise this year was smaller than expected or non-existent, as for next year? Don’t ask!
  • You are on Zero Hour contracts
  • You are under employed
  • Protection against job insecurity
  • Getting married with all the related costs that brings
  • New family member
  • Buying a flat or house or a bigger one
  • Extra money for a holiday
  • Pay off bills and/or higher mortgage
  • Top up your pension
  • More comfortable lifestyle
  • Entrepreneurial talent
  • Income for life
  • Always wanted my own business
  • Want time freedom – freedom to choose
  • Flexible approach to income creation

And these are also some of the reasons, why people will join you in this business too.

How do you get started and become a business partner?

Basically you will get a company and a business in a box for less than a £2-00 per week including Vat investment for 12 months (renewals are £3-00 per month thereafter). The Opportunity website www.future-biz.co.uk will explain more. Setting up a business from scratch will usually cost several hundred if not thousands of pounds, so to get one for £100 is quite an achievement and this investment comes with a 60 day money back guarantee.

Included within this 60 day period will be a number of targets, the first of which will be to get three customers (you will be your own first customer) and this will put some money in your pocket and build towards the first bonus of up to £1000 – potentially growing to £3,000 in your first year. I will be explain exactly how this works and the residual income on top too, when we next speak – please do make a note to ask me.

As I explained The Utility Warehouse provide the individual or company with massive savings on their present spending. So, in return for securing their business, you will be paid a bonus of up to £50 for each new customer plus ongoing commissions based on what they spend and likewise of your teams’ distributors customers as well.

The Utility Warehouse is a powerful and unique player in the market, but only you can decide what you want from the company. Tell me what it is, and the team and I will help you get there. Very importantly I am looking for people who want to take control of their future – are you that sort of person?

Equally importantly it is an award winning company and recognised as so by for example Which? magazine – this is third party and independent recognition.

Further the company doesn’t sit still – it is always looking to improve, and presently is building a new headquarters, three times the size of the present one to support the record growth being delivered by the network. Hugely important to note this is a UK based business in every way – nothing goes offshore.

You will have questions and that is good, and I will have questions too, and the first of those will be: What do you want to achieve now and in the future?

This is probably the most important question that can ever be asked and relates as to whether you are happy, so here’s a flow diagram to help you.

A flow diagram to help you make a decision

A flow diagram to help you make a decision

Am I happy? Yes, most certainly, because I see people join our business with and without the necessary skills to become successful; they follow our training and benefit from the support we provide; they grow as people and benefit financially over one, two, three or more years, and when ready they duplicate their success.

There is no corporate ladder here – just a very wide staircase, where we climb side by side at our own pace. Some climb faster, others take longer – that is fine.

This is a business like no other, and I have worked with some of the biggest and smallest around – you make friends for life with Utility Warehouse.

Is this business for you?

I have no idea yet …….. so please visit www.future-biz.co.uk and enter your details in the boxes on the front page, and then let’s have a conversation and see how it goes from there.

I am ready to have that conversation, are you?

PS How happy would you like to be?

Why do some people always struggle in being successful in business?

The subject line has been bugging me this last weekend, and I continually come back to it time and time again. I have made a few pages of notes, and tried to answer the question myself, but really have a drawn a blank.

I am aware of things like motivation being an important factor, and this includes goals, but I am now thinking there is simply something else that holds people back from success, and yes, I do accept sucess is defined differently for each person.

We have also discussed business plans to some degree too, here and on LinkedIn – a plan though as a standalone, simply doesn’t impact in such a way.

Let’s give you an example, and I am going to use the franchise model as the starting point. Some would argue this is a recipe for disaster in its own right, however, I see many people involved with franchises, who have become massively successful and financially independent, operating such a model. Even my own business is a cut down franchise, so I am writing from experience.

Person A buys a franchise, does really well. Is active in promoting it to a wider audience, attends all training provided, including sales and marketing courses, follows the system (& uses the support), and builds a successful business, and eventually buys a second and third franchise.

Whereas Person B buys the same franchise, is active in promoting it to a wider audience, attends all training provided, including sales and marketing courses, follows the system (& uses the support), and fails to build a successful business. They buy another franchise and fail again, eventually going bankrupt.

I can give you examples of a string of People A and People B – I meet them all the time in my business and at networking events. I expect to meet more next week at Business 2012. It can’t be about location, since I have seen businesses thrive in places, where I would expect them to struggle, and vice versa.

So what is the magic ingredient?

What am I missing?

Is there simply a type of person that is cut out for success and another for failure? And it can’t be about the business, since it is identical?

I am intrigued by this conundrum; is it simply because we are human, that these things happen?

So what is your view and suggestions for a solution?

Laurence
