The Cyberclass Network seeks to inform and educate any prospective
entrepreneurs to the SDI (Self Directed Incomes) industry otherwise known as MLM (Multi
Level Marketing), (Network Marketing), (Referral Marketing) and/or (Affiliate Marketing).
The Cyberclass Network promotes the concept of SDI entrepreneurs actively building a PEP
(Permanent Earnings Portfolio) or an SDI (Self Directed Income) Portfolio. This innovative
concept may very well be the key to success for any entrepreneur in the SDI industry in
the 21st century.
Readers must be aware that many of the bedrock SDI suppliers of products and services still discourage distributors/associates/representatives from working with other SDI suppliers, preferring instead to coerce then to devout all of their energy and time to one source of income. SDI entrepreneurs must address this issue as the SDI industry matures. Just as a general store has the right to market products and/or services from a variety of sources so should SDI entrepreneurs have the right to earn income(s) from various sources - without the threat of termination.
Over the years there have been many complaints and much litigation as distributors of leading SDI supplier of products sought justice. Sidney Schwartz published many such disputed cases in the various Amway organizations. Without a doubt the SDI industry does need a new direction and in this regard I advocate making barter and trading an integral component of the SDI infrastructure. Given the ease of modern technology, the projections for economic trends in the 21 Century and the massive numbers of people involved in the SDI industry we can first implement beta projects within the SDI industry involving economic exchange using the popular and proven LETS software and later adopt the concept as a model for the SDI industry.
According to orthodox financial planners the base of any investor's priority pyramid is structured with common, financial protection needs such as repayment of interest-bearing debt, front end insurance, a will, an emergency fund etc. The second level is built by counselling the investor to acquire such primary assets as a mortgaged home, and to play in the USURY game (though they do not refer to it as such) by purchasing RRSP's and Canada Savings Bonds. After clients have some primary assets in a portfolio it is customary for financial planners to encourage them to play in the USURY game with more intensity by accumulating GIC's (guaranteed investment certificates), treasury bills, and/or term deposits. Finally, orthodox financial planners move their clients further up the priority pyramid to more risky commodity investments such as blue chip stocks, blue chip bonds, precious metals, gems and art etc.
Participants in the SDI industry are invited to be fully aware of the advice of conventional financial planners as they learn to develop a wise investment strategy based on a PEP with an entrepreneurial twist. SDI entrepreneurs can now build solid investment portfolios by focusing on SDI business opportunities and uncommon and unorthodox economic alternatives that function outside of the traditional USURY market. Creative SDI entrepreneurs prefer to build the base of their PEP by focusing on opportunities in the ever expanding world of home-based business. Such SDI opportunities usually have minimum risk in regards to interest-bearing money. Personal labour is willingly invested while the concepts of community networking, barter and avoiding taxes are maximized.
SDI entrepreneurs are encouraged to anchor their PEP with at least one bedrock SDI opportunity by seeking a corporate supplier of products and services that has been around for a minimum of 15 years. One such opportunity worthy of examination is that offered by Amway - the pioneer and a major corporation within the SDI industry. Amway has fully embraced the SDI industry since1959 and though Amway - the corporation and its various distributor networks - has its share of controversy and lawsuits but as a business opportunity it does offer the any SDI entrepreneur a solid base upon which to commence building a Permanent Earnings Portfolio.
Understand also that because Amway is the leader in the SDI industry any traditional market forces that are threatened by continuing growth of the SDI industry are likely to have a goal to tarnish the entire SDI industry by attacking Amway. Anyone choosing the Amway opportunity is invited to select a sponsor by carefully avoiding the AMO network which likes to impose its "system" on new recruits. Read more details about the AMO's. and learn all that you can before making any choices. Scott Larsen's website presents practical economic insights into the typical Amway/Quixtar (AmQuix) Motivational Organization's (AQMO) plan. John Hoagland's website offers some interesting perspectives on the Amway/Quixstar opportunity.
In spite of the negative actions of some lines of distributorship, the extraordinary success of the worldwide Amway Corporation which currently holds the honour of being identified as the fastest growing "foreign company" in Japan has brought legitimacy and credibility to the SDI industry. For 42 years Amway has been heralded as the leading pioneer in the SDI industry. It is true that Amway blazed the trail for the new companies that are now recognizing this method of marketing as the best way to reach consumers as we approach the 21st Century.
Investing in an Amway Sales and Marketing Kit is definitely an option to be considered for any active or prospective SDI entrepreneur who is serious about winning financially in the 21st Century. Amway offers primary products and services which can be consumed on a repeat basis at wholesale prices by being a distributor and Amway has created a niche in the marketplace and it will likely continue to grow and expand.
Since knowledge, information, and stability are essential components of the base of any priority pyramid, SDI entrepreneurs can move their PEP's ahead quickly knowing that their initial investment is rooted in a bedrock opportunity. There are indeed other opportunities in the SDI industry that are equally suitable for the base opportunity of any SDI entrepreneur's PEP but Amway is a "solid" opportunity for any SDI entrepreneur's porfolio.
As any SDI entrepreneur steps up to the second level of a solid priority pyramid and searches for a second level SDI opportunity with a minimum 10 years of stability more and varied opportunities present themselves. The investment risk with these middle-aged, middle-sized, SDI opportunities is still reasonably secure.
As any SDI entrepreneur moves to the third level of any priority pyramid, opportunities with a minimum of five years stability might be considered. The investment risk with these younger SDI suppliers of products and/or services is still reasonably safe, sometimes more exciting, though never guaranteed.
New SDI opportunities - days, weeks, months or even one or two years old - are the attraction on the fourth level of any priority pyramid. While the degree of risk increases dramatically with these SDI opportunities so does the financial return come more rapidly because of the "ground floor" opportunity. Investing at the fourth level before structuring a solid base of any priority pyramid risks the game plan of any SDI entrepreneur who is serious about building a secure, long term PEP.
Since there is no chance that a priority pyramid with a solid base will tip over there is always room for one more level at the top of any SDI entrepreneur's PEP. It is indeed, exciting to dream of what will occur on the next levels of any priority pyramid as the SDI industry expands into the mainstream in the years ahead.
