Living from the Inside Out
Financial peace is possible anytime, regardless of the amount of money we have. Our awareness of sufficiency frees up our focus to see opportunities for growing what we have. If we believe there is enough and are grateful for what we have, we feel empowered to contribute and serve the needs around us, which is always what increases our earning power.

The Pursuit of Happiness
Paul Devlin started his entrepreneurial path as a kid delivering newspapers and mowing lawns in his neighborhood. He always had a keen interest in making money and was typically the first kid on the block with the new bike or the latest stereo gear. When he started a network marketing business, he quickly built a solid income for himself and retired from a corporate job at the age of thirty-four. He’s been living the residual income lifestyle ever since. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing… At one point he realized his downline looked like Guatemala, with very few people making all the money and everyone else struggling. He set out to discover a different way of building a network marketing organization.

Recession? A Great Time to Recruit
With any recruiting effort, you want to be certain the people you talk with, your product and you are a good match. While there are more people interested in network marketing these days, they’re not all cut out to succeed in it. You know what it takes to succeed: a belief in your product, a strong desire to help others, some selling skills and management ability. Take time to qualify people before signing them up in your business.
From “Met” to “Net”
Networking is more than just chance meetings. Even if your BlackBerry is bursting with names, numbers and email addresses, it will not do you a bit of good unless you build the relationships. People do business with, as well as help, share information with, brainstorm with and give referrals to, those people they trust and value. They trust and value people who genuinely care about them and offer the promise of progress.
Stand Out—Part II
To build a powerful personal brand online, be authentic, relevant and consistent. Authenticity creates transparency and establishes a connection between you and your audience. Being relevant means you show your viewer, listener and reader that you’re interested in them and how you may be qualified to help them. Be consistent in every little step you take so your actions don’t contradict your values.
