I'd like to share this video with you as it certainly gives you 'food for thought'.

Although it was created for a specific network marketing company, the principles in it apply to anyone who is trading their time for money, be it in a JOB (Just Over Broke) or running a traditional business where in order to increase their income, they have to work longer hours.

So how do you break away from this 40 year plan which leaves you broke?

Well, you need to do something that is not just a straight swap of your time for money. You need to find a way of creating a recurring and residual income, that will continue to come in.

Now, no matter how you choose to do this, be it with internet marketing, network marketing or a combination of both, (or you may choose to write a bestselling book or a hit song) like any business you have to put time and effort into it at the beginning.

It's not going to happen overnight. But if you keep working at it, it will happen and then you begin to reap the benefits of your efforts.

I have spent many years working for other people, and I have also been involved in my own businesses trading time for money, and having the headache of employing other people.

All I can say is, I am much happier doing what I do now. Choosing how and when I work, only having myself to answer to and doing something I enjoy. Knowing that I will be rewarded on the basis of my own efforts is a great feeling.

Of course, many people would love to live the life of their dreams but don't know where to start. They need to know how to 'sort the wheat from the chaff' when it comes to choosing what they should do, they are frightened to step out into the unknown and need to have someone to hold their hand and show them the way.

A good network marketing company or internet marketing system will offer them just that – support and guidance, training and mentoring.

So what do they look for in such a company? Well that will be the subject of another article. But suffice to say at this point, it must have integrity with the best interests of its associates at heart.

In the meantime, for those who are maybe looking to combine network marketing, internet marketing and a great training and support system, they need look no further than the Six Figure Mentors.
