I have talked several times about the Multiple Streams of Income Mindset. On vacation, I read (finally) The Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. I highly recommend it. I have ordered several of his other books. It is one of those books that has been by my bedside for quite some time. In looking at how to build wealth Kiyosaki talks about investing, building a business and also the viability of network marketing. One of the important qualifiers of a business was that it was a system, that works with or without you, the owner. I know many of us are building businesses, but can we really leave them, alone for months, or a year and still have them working for us?
That is my new goal, to look at my business and determine how to build it so that it is viable with or with out me. I am also continuing to build my other streams of revenue through network marketing. I am using SendOutCards more and more. It is such a fun program. I send cards, gifts and stay in touch better with my friends, family and contacts than I ever did before. I have set a new goal of sending out 10 cards each week. I am also building a team of people that want to increase their income and at the same time stay in touch. Let me share some of the ways that I am using SendOutCards:
- I am bad with birthdays but SendOutCards has reminders. I have used it to send cards and gifts to nieces, nephews and friends.
- I have set up campaigns ( series of cards that go out automatically) for my business – to stay in touch with new contacts.
- I have set up websites to tell people about the opportunity and share the possibilities of generating new and additional income
- I work with people to integrate SendOutCards into their life and business so that it works for them in a couple of ways.
The other venture that we are a part of is a travel business. You can become a preferred customer and book travel with us, or you can join our DreamTrips program that offers exclusive trips and significantly discounted prices or you can join our team and be part of our travel business. It is fun, and travel is a GROWING industry. I share our sites with folks and I receive rave reviews on our travel booking engine.
After reading Kiyosaki’s book, I knew that being a part of successful network marketing was a good choice. That we are part of a group of people that are focused on building wealth and learning how to do it successfully, and that we can help other people to do the same thing.
I continue to work as a coach with clients and groups, and I continue to offer a variety of services to entrepreneurs. I love that work. But I see the importance, especially in this economy of aligning with like minded people, building success and wealth in a number of ways and living our dreams.
