Pay Yourself First

Resolve today that you are going to save an invest at least 10 percent of your income throughout your working life. Take 10 percent of your income off the top of your paycheck each time you receive one and put it into a special account for financial accumulation.

Save Throughout Your Career
The fact is that if you save just $100 a month throughout your working lifetime and you invest money in an average mutual fund that grows at 10 percent per annum, you will be worth more than one million dollars by the time you retire. This means that anyone, even a person earning minimum wage, if he or she starts early enough and saves long enough, can become a millionaire over the course of his or her working lifetime.

Lifelong Habits
Developing the lifelong habit of saving and investing your money is not easy. It requires tremendous determination and willpower. You have to set it as a goal, write it down, make a plan, and work on it all the time. But once this practice locks in and becomes automatic, your financial success is virtually assured.

Practice frugality, frugality, frugality in all things. Be very careful with every penny. Question every expenditure. Delay or defer important buying decisions for at least a week, if not a month. The longer you put off making a buying decision, the better your decision will be and the better price you will get at that time.

Parkinson's Law
A major reason that people retire poor is because of impulsive buying. They see something they like they buy it with very little thought. They become victims of what is called "Parkinson's Law," which says that "expenses rise to meet income." This means that no matter how much you earn, you tend to spend that much and a little bit more besides. You never get ahead and you never get out of debt.

Don't be a Victim

You don't have to be a victim of Parkinson's Law. If you cannot save 10 percent of your income, start today by saving 1 percent of your income in a special savings and investment account. Put it away at the beginning of each month, even before you begin paying down your debts. Live on the other 99 percent of your income. As you become comfortable living on 99 percent, raise your savings level to 2 percent of your income, then 3 percent and 4 percent, and so on.

Grow Your Savings and Investments
Within one year, you will be saving 10 percent and maybe even 15 or 20 percent of your income and living comfortably off the balance. At the same time, your savings and investment account will start to grow. You will become more careful about your expenditures, and your debts will begin to be paid off.

Change Your Financial Outlook in a Year

Within a year or two, your entire financial life will be under your control and you will be on your way to becoming a self-made millionaire. This process has worked for everyone who has ever tried it. Try and see for yourself.

Open a special account for financial accumulation today. Make a deposit in this account, no matter how small. Then, look for every opportunity to add to this account. Begin to study money so that you understand how to make it grow. Read books and magazines by experts on the subject. Never stop saving, learning, and growing until you become financially independent.

A PRIVILEGE OR A RARE Opportunity...?

YOLILIFE – The New “Super Juice” Kid in Town


The secret whisper campaign about a revolutionary new concept.
There is a whisper campaign going on right now that will soon become a roar. As with most stories like this… it is too powerful to be contained for long. The cat is already out of the bag so I won’t be talking out of school by divulging this information.

Also, I am sure I am not the first writer to bring this story to the public’s attention.But since Yoli is currently in VIP only PRELAUNCH and I'm one of the few "hand selected" members that are helping to launch this new company ... and you can join me at the very beginning of this great network marketing adventure

What am I talking about? Well I’ll tell you in a minute but first let me just say, it’s about a revolutionary new product line with a delivery system that will blow away the super juice industry.

But first a little background;

Anyone ever heard of Noni? Well you certainly have if you are in the direct sales / network marketing industry. Noni was the first big juice to hit the market through MLM sales. Noni became a giant company with billions of dollars in sales.

Noni is a great product and has made hundreds of distributors very wealthy. However, you can now buy Noni online… by the quart… for under $10.

Several top Noni reps left Noni and started Xango, another super food juice derived from the Mangosteen fruit. Xango reached one billion dollars in annual sales and was the fastest company in network marketing history to do so.

Xango is a great product and has made hundreds of distributors very wealthy.

Several top Noni/Xango and some other “juice” reps started MonaVie. MonaVie is another super food juice that uses the Acai berry and other ingredients. MonaVie was the fastest company ever to reach a billion in total sales. They did this in less than two years

MonaVie is a great product and has made hundreds of distributors very wealthy.
OK, get the picture. These super food juices, loaded with anti-oxidants are terrific products and if you were fortunate enough to get on board early you would have been in line to reap hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in the wake of their legendary entry and rise in the marketplace.

What do Noni, Xango & MonaVie have in common?

The things that these three products have in common are as follows;

· They are all single product focused (although Xango has recently introduced a cosmetic line)

· They are all expensive products

· They have all created hundreds of 5 figure and 6 figure monthly earners in a short period of time.

OK, that’s a nice story and all Sade but tell me…how does it affect me?

Well, here’s how. If you are wise, you will take the information in this post and use it to your advantage. And if you act on that information, you could become one of the very fortunate who get in at the beginning of something very lucrative.

Here’s the deal.

**Several top Xango reps have left Xango and started a company called YoliLife.

Now understand this… we’re talking about the cream of the crop at Xango. Names like Cory Citron, Daren Falter & Robby Fender to name a few. Now these guys are not only top producers but they are also Network Marketing geniuses. They each bring their own unique marketing and management skill sets to the table.

They just recently set-up corporate headquarters in Salt Lake across the street from MonaVie, they also bought a five bedroom house for hosting guests who fly in.

Financial Backing millions and millions of dollars have gone into laying the groundwork. Most all of the founders/owners are moving to Salt Lake City to be close to corporate headquarters.

These gentlemen have putting considerable sums of their own money into this venture. Another co-founder I should mention here is Michael Prichard, a huge investor in Australia; for those of you not familiar with that name here, he is known as the Donald Trump of Australia.

So what makes Yoli different than all the others?

Four things vastly separate Yoli from the other super food juice drinks.

1. Yoli is NOT a one product company although its emphasis is focused on “liquid nutrition” and a ”functional beverage”. Yoli will bring multiple products to the marketplace.

2. Blast Cap technology a simple/cool/unique multiple-patented demonstratable delivery technology. By using this patented technology there will be NO pasteurization… NO preservatives… NO loss of nutritional value/enzymes/etc… NO sugar (ZERO Glycemic Index)
BlastCap technology delivers Whole Food - real-time - Liquid Nutrition… offering what Noni, Xango, and Monavie offer plus much more. To fully appreciate this revolutionary technology click BlastCap video link at the bottom of this page.

3. Price Priced at 1/10th the price with 10 times more nutritional value.

4. Compensation A binary comp plan that is better than MonaVie’s. (MonaVie’s is arguably the best in the business until now.)

Big names from a cross section of the Network Marketing community are taking a close look at this company. I personally know several from YTB and other giant Network Marketing companies who are already in.

What is the lesson… of this history lesson?

· Super food juice companies make those who get in early very rich.

· Noni, Xango and MonaVie have all done well but each one grew faster and created more millionaires than the one before them.

· Based on these trends/past/history, I believe Yoli will be larger than Noni, Xango, and MonaVie (put together)…will get there faster than any of them… and will create larger incomes. Those who recognize this and join early… like the founders did in Noni, Xango, and Monavie…will be sitting in very high clover… in the very near future.

Until next time,

Live the Dream

Being an Extraordinary Leader Through Tough and Challenging Times

Chris Widener

Tough and challenging times will surely come. That is a given. The question is what kind of leadership we will demonstrate during those times. Those who are weak leaders will see lasting damage done, if not see the organization fall apart completely. With Extraordinary Leaders at the helm, however, an organization can actually become stronger and thrive in spite of the tough and challenging times. That should be our goal, so here are some ideas on how to be an Extraordinary Leader in tough and challenging times!

1. Keep Your Eye on the Big Picture. When things get tough, everybody's temptation is to become acutely focused on the problem. The Extraordinary Leader, however, will keep his or her eye on the big picture. This doesn't mean that we don't address the problem. In fact, we have to address the problem. But what separates a leader from a follower is that the leader doesn't get caught up in the problem. The leader sees the big picture and keeps moving toward the vision. The further they take their followers toward the vision, the further away from the problem they get.

2. Don't Get Caught in the War or the Friendly Fire. When it gets tough even the most loyal team members can be tempted to start shooting and, unfortunately, they sometimes shoot each other! Rather than focusing on the enemy on the outside, they begin to question each other and find many faults with one another that they normally would not have seen. The Extraordinary Leader is the one who can keep from being drug into the fray. They keep their eye on the big picture and act rationally and objectively. They understand that people are heated and are saying things they don't really mean. The people are firing because they are angry or scared. The Extraordinary Leader understands this and rises above it. This way, they take fewer arrows and they set the example for their followers.

3. Be First to Sacrifice. When it gets tough, like when there has to be cuts in salaries etc, the leader should do just that - lead. They need to not only be the one who is rewarded the greatest when all is well, but they need to be the first to sacrifice. The Extraordinary leader says, "I know many of you are concerned with the salary cuts. I am too. In the long run we will be healthy again but for the mean time, this is necessary. Understanding this, I want you to know that I am taking a 20% pay reduction myself. I want you to know that we are in this together." The Extraordinary Leader is the first to sacrifice and will be rewarded with the loyalty of his or her followers.

4. Remain Calm. Panic is one of the basest of human emotions and no one is immune to it. The Extraordinary Leader, however, takes time out regularly to think the issues through so they can remain calm. They remind themselves that all is not lost and there will be another day. They remind themselves that being calm will enable them to make the best decisions - for themselves and for their followers. Panic only leads to disaster, while calm leads to victory.

5. Motivate. In tough and challenging times, people are naturally down. They tend to be pessimistic. They can't see how it is all going to work out. Thus, they have a hard time getting going. The Extraordinary Leader knows this and will focus in on being the optimistic motivator. He or she will come to the office knowing that for the time being, the mood of the group will be carried and buoyed by them and their attitude. Above all else, they seek to show how the end result will be good - and with this they motivate their followers to continue on, braving the current storms, and on to their shared destiny.

6. Create Small Wins. One of the ways to motivate is to create small wins. The Extraordinary Leader knows that in tough times his or her people think that all is lost. They wonder if they can win. So the Extraordinary Leader creates opportunities for the team to win, even if they are small. They set smaller, more achievable goals and remind and reward the team members when they hit those goals. With each small win, the leader is building the esteem and attitude of his followers, digging them out of their self-created hole of fear.

7. Keep a Sense of Humor.
Look, hardly anything in life can't be laughed at. The Extraordinary Leader knows that even if the whole company goes down the drain, we still go home to our families and live a life of love with them. The Extraordinary Leader keeps perspective and knows that we humans act irrationally when we get scared and fail, and sometimes that is humorous. Don't ever laugh at someone's expense in this situation, because that will be perceived as cold and heartless, regardless of what you meant by it, but do keep the ability to laugh at yourself and the situations that present themselves. By doing this you will keep yourself and your team in an attitude that will eventually beat the tough times.
