"The most successful people in the world look for and build networks, while everybody else just looks for work." Robert Kiyosaki - Rich Dad, Poor Dad
The past Century has brought a lot of changes in the way we do business. After the trend that has brought many people from the rural areas to the city to work a "job," many are looking now again into being an entrepreneur.
One of the new ways of doing business was the change in retail to mass merchandising. Sam Walton with his Wal*Mart Stores brought a whole new way to the distribution of merchandise. In fact, he revolutionized it to the point where retail has shown the more successful business (over manufacturing), only surpassed by the oil industry.
The next revolution came through the introduction of franchising. Today, most fast food restaurants and some other businesses are all run by the franchising model. You can find the golden arches in Germany as well as Korea and many other exotic places. The model is so successful with its systems that many of the franchise businesses sell for over a million dollars.
One other industry is revolutionizing the economy, and that’s the networking industry. With its word-of-mouth advertising and direct distribution it can be considered the last frontier for the small entrepreneur to start from home with a low investment. Beyond just distributing goods, this industry has also introduced intellectual distribution.
Paul Zane Pilzer, in his book, The Next Millionaires, states: "The purpose of this book is not to talk about our society, our government or our country's or the world's economic policies. The purpose of this book is to talk about you and your life. About where our economy has been and (especially) where it's going. And most of all, about what you can do, not just to survive, but to thrive and prosper in the years ahead."
He also said:
"Direct selling not only lets you build a better business it also makes you a better entrepreneur... You only win when you help others win." He wraps it all up with a chapter on "The Spiritual Nature of Business." He has one whole chapter which addresses how to be successful as a direct seller (it is up to YOU) and how to pick a company.
Paul Zane Pilzer on the wellness and direct selling industry:
In his book, The Next Millionaires, Paul Zane Pilzer is optimistic regarding the changes in our economy. While many of the older forms of commerces are confronted with many obstacles (bail-outs, bankruptcies, etc.), Pilzer predicts the 21st Century to be known as the age of the entrepreneur, and gives us many suggestions to how we can become one of the 10 million new millionaires that this new economy will create. By looking into an nutritional home-based business like MonaVie with the intellectual distribution system back by the TEAM, we are in the right place at the right time. This direct selling industry is teaching people how to obtain products and services that they didn't even know existed. In that way everybody can look at this industry from a new viewpoint and overcome their professional skepticism.
Things in the book to consider: * The new millionaires are teachers not salespeople * They will create a huge new business opportunity for themselves * Wealth was once created by people who made things (manufacturers) * New wealth is now being created by people who distribute things (Network Marketers) * Physical distribution (of goods) is out ... intellectual distribution is in * Intellectual distribution is teaching people that the goods exist and how they benefit them
Pilzer's years of experience as an entrepreneur and employer, make him uniquely qualified to explain how to find your place in the new economy and your pathway to becoming one of The Next Millionaires. His perspective certainly will show you how you can be at right time at the right place to welcome your ship come in.
