What Will It Take to Be Free?

Financial Freedom
By Rod Nichols (

In the network marketing profession we talk so much about the really big income earners - those making $1,000,000 or more annually. Yet, that's probably under 1% of the total network marketers. What we should be talking about is financial freedom.

I used to think that financial freedom resulted from becoming a millionaire. What I realized is that financial freedom really means making enough money to cover all your financial needs, giving you the freedom to live life without the constraints of a job. I was able to accomplish that in 1998 and haven't worked a job since. In fact, the other day, I was talking with a friend and mentioned that my wife and I live like retired people and have for the last 15 years. Most days, we get up without an alarm and can decide what we want to do that day. Although we have a network marketing business, we don't have to work it every day. You see, financial freedom is about the choices that you don't have when you work a job.

So, financial freedom will look different to everyone. Your first step is to determine how much you would need to make each month, so that you could quit your job without any hardship. The second step is to then work with an upline leader, who already has financial freedom, on a plan to develop a residual income that is higher than the amount you determined in step one. The final step is to work your plan every day until you reach your goal of financial freedom.

It might take you a year or two or it might take you five or ten years, but think about it, what else could you be doing that would result in financial freedom within the next ten years? The reality is that if you are with a good company and have a good plan that you honestly work every day, you will likely accomplish financial freedom within five years. Most people could do just about anything for five years, if they knew that freedom was on the other end.

You are just 3 steps away from a life of totally freedom. Isn't it time to get started?

MLM: Free the Slaves

My wife and I went to see Lincoln and I was in awe of the movie, the acting, and most of all the story. Obviously the Lincoln story is not new. We all likely studied it during history class in school, but what stood out from the movie was Lincoln's vision, consistency, and persistence, particulary in his goal to abolish slavery. Even under great persecution, which eventually ended his life, he pursued his vision and saw the anti-slavery law passed.

Unfortunately, there are still many people who are slaves to a J.O.B. (Just Over Broke). The good news is that we, network marketers, have the opportunity to carry Lincoln's torch and free the slaves. I was once a slave, toiling long hard hours every day, making other people rich, while my family struggled. Today, because of network marketing, I can do what ever I want, whenever I want and have plenty of money. Today, because of network marketing, I can free other slaves and help them move into a life of freedom and so can you!

Thank God for Abraham Lincoln and for network marketing. FREE THE SLAVES!!!
