Homelessness

From Wiki:

" Homelessness is the condition of people without a regular dwelling. People who are homeless are most often unable to acquire and maintain regular, safe, secure, and adequate housing, or lack "fixed, regular, and adequate night-time residence." The legal definition of "homeless" varies from country to country, or among different jurisdictions in the same country or region. The term homeless may also include people whose primary night-time residence is in a homeless shelter, a warming center, a domestic violence shelter, a vehicle (including recreational vehicles and campers),cardboard boxes, a tent, tarpaulins, or other ad hoc housing situations. American Government homeless enumeration studies also include persons who sleep in a public or private place not designed for use as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings."

Thank you for clearing that up Wiki!

Me... I agree, to a point! This is a weak definition of " Homelessness " has I can tell. Has I know it to be, homelessness is also a " state of mind ". Wiki has not definition for " state of homelessness ".
To me " homelessness " is more a state of mind then anything else. Sure, not having a place to sleep is part of it. However, while in the state of mind... the " state of homelessness " things are much worse, much harder. 

Being homeless is not just about where to sleep. I think that after the first few night sleeping outside it sort of becomes easy, has odd has that might sound. Homeless people finding a place to sleep is really not that hard. Its really just a matter of looking around and finding what your comfortable with. Over the years you will be surprised what you find comfortable. Heck, after a few years on the streets I find I can now sleep just about anywhere. I can sleep through a train riding straight through my room. Sleep in the car... no problem. Fall asleep at work, done!  I'll fall asleep right now, watch!

zzzzz zzz zzzzzzz zzzzz

Oh hey, sorry!

My point is this, homelessness is still not the black and white topic ( has Wiki points out ) , has I said years ago. Homelessness is colorful and ( in my eyes ) full of wounder. Its a state of mind. I believed I was homeless .... so I was homeless. I believed it so much that I constantly tossed myself into that life the very moment I felt I was going to be with out a place to sleep. That's called the " homeless prep ". It was only after I discovered this and made changes that I became what Wiki might call..... " Unhomelessness ", lol! 

Today, has I predicted ( read back if you must )... Homelessness is in the news more then ever, and for all the wrong reasons. Homelessness is has much a " state of mind " has is it a reality. The two go hand in hand and are equal, I believe. Homelessness is also a market ( also has I stated before ) and that's why its top news today. Think about that for a second. The news, the laws, the money, the organizations the donations. I believe this topic IS the American backbone ( rather good or bad ). If it was not...... why is it on everyone's radar? Why is everyone acting on it? Why is it all over my Facebook news feed? Why is it constantly in the news now?

These are trying times for Americas. Coming from someone who has been there, I beg you to never look at homelessness in black and white fashion. That's where the reality of homelessness begins and the sink starts. After awhile..... Wiki will have something to say about you.

People, free your minds and always look up. Unless your helping a homeless person up out the gutter!

Homeless No More! Me and My Beautiful Girlfriend!

 For all my many years down in the dump it seems God himself had bigger plans for me. LOL, nothing I ever planed for or set out on, but has I have learned over the years...... you can plan a vacation trip and that might work out great ..... but planning you life ..... get ready for the unexpected.

Today, I did not expect to be better off AFTER a spree of homelessness then I was before hand. I did not expect to be a nationally branded on/off line marketer. I did not expect to be making the money I am or drive the nice car a own, no no! I expected...... my life long plan to work, lol.

I was doing good in life...... then I was homeless for years... now I'm doing better then I could have every imagine.

I have so much to be grateful for. Particularly, that beautiful woman to your right.

Rose,
the only woman I ever had in my life that never cared if I was poor or well off ( for that matter ). The only woman I have ever had in my life that simply loves me.... because I'm me. She is my most biggest supporter and my best friend.

Unfortunately, I cant market her! Otherwise, I'd make sure we all have a Rose " type " person in all our lives. Someone to love you unconditionally. NOPE, SORRY! This Rose is all mine!

I love you, Rose!
My unexpected, God granted, love!

Homeless America

It's a bit of the truth from where I stand.

Reading back through some of my older post I begin to realize just how on point I was about a lot of things, except my own life. Most defiantly my post about Tampa Florida. Believe me I wish I was wrong. I wish today I had no reason to write this post at all. I wish it was all different. I wish I was wrong about everything. And today I wish I never heard the words " homeless America " in my head.

Those two words.... " Homeless America "...... have led me back here and have compelled me to, once again, take action. Why? Well, not that I'm an expert on the topic ( plenty of people have lived on the bottom and rose to the top ) but because ..... maybe my story here is not has finished has I thought. Maybe, I have more to offer then "hey, I made it, thanks for reading ". Or perhaps, I'm here again because I know so much of what its like it wish for so much and never see it happen.

"Homeless America " where did it come from? I think it came from my experiences in  the streets. The feeling I had has a homeless person trying to make it up. It came from realizing ( after 5 years ) at some point in my life the part of me that loves to self destruct...... did! And that's what left me in the streets. How do I relate that to " homeless America "? Easy! I relate Americas present state to my thinking, has a homeless person. In my mind the two are intertwined.

Has a homeless person I could not help that every day I felt :
Anger, anxiety, fear, shame, indignation, envy, confusion and hopeless.

And today has an American I cant help but feel:
Anger, anxiety, fear, shame, indignation, envy, confusion and hopeless.

Its not a coincidence. I know these feelings well. I doweled in these feelings for years while while I slept on park benches night after night, before I made it up. No, I'm not an expert! I just feel that today ....... America knows more then every that it feels like to be homeless and being someone that has been there and made it out.... I can relate.... and speak!

Top 10 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Starting An MLM

There are many great multi-level marketing companies in operation and some exceptional ones. Unfortunately, there are also some that give the industry a bad name. Therefore, you need to know what to look for before committing your time, money and dreams to an MLM company that will only give you heart ache.
Don’t let anyone try to rush you into making a decision. Take your time, do your due diligence and make sure you feel right about everything before signing on the dotted line. Don’t let all of the hype cloud your good judgment.
It is not enough to choose a great company. I recommend only the best companies, but this doesn’t assure that they will all be right for you. The secret is to find the company that stirs your passion and feels as though it was created and designed especially for you.
To find such a company you need to explore several areas, which I have defined using list of questions. The questions are in a useful order, although the order itself is not prerequisite in order for you to make a right decision. The following is my list of the top 10 questions to which you need to find answers:
#1 What is the product or service you are asked to promote?
Unless you believe in a product or service enough to want to buy and use it yourself, how can you promote it? Your passion has to start here. (In the future, when you read the word “product,” realize that in most cases this also includes “service.”) With all of the top MLM companies, this is the heart and soul of the business. This is what gives the company – your business – its longevity. The fact is that the biggest reason that many MLM companies fall apart is because there is no demand for the product. If you can get passionate about the product and feel that others will as well, then you are ready to ask the next question.
#2 How much does the product cost the consumer?
The product should be priced well enough so that it does not become an issue. You have enough to do in building an MLM business that you don’t want to have to spend your time trying to justify the price. When you are convinced that people will want the product and it is priced well, you can move on to the other questions.
#3 Who are the leaders of the company and what are their strengths?
The leadership of any company is important, but with MLM companies it plays an even more prominent role. In this case, at least one of the leaders is almost always the founder. They created the company. It is their mission statement and vision that sets the direction and tone of the company. Some important sub-questions to ask include: What did they do before leading this MLM? How did they come together as a team? What is their experience and reputation? Once you feel you can be proud of the leadership team and respect their judgment and decisions, you can move onto the next question.
#4 Does the MLM company seem financially sound?
A big reason that companies in general fail is that they are under-capitalized when they launch and/or they don’t have enough money in reserves to get them through their first two years. Learning this information may take some time and effort on your part, but remember that I am here to help you. Most companies are proud to disclose their financials, or at least part of them, to the public. It is when you can’t find anything about their finances that you should begin to worry.
#5 How long has the MLM company been in business?
90% of the MLM companies that go out of business do so within their first two years of operation. Therefore, as a general rule, it makes sense to wait until a company has celebrated its two year anniversary before joining them. It is important to note here, however, that if you are happy with all of the answers to the other questions, you may not want to wait. Sometimes it is good to get in on the ground floor, when a company is new and exciting. The actual age of the company is not as important as its growth. If it has been around a long time, just make sure that the growth trend line is still positive.
#6 Does the MLM company enjoy a positive reputation?
The company’s reputation should, of course, be important to you, since its credibility will impact your personal credibility. This also goes both ways. In your search for the company’s reputation, especially if you plan to do it online, I would like to issue a warning: Don’t believe everything you read! Unfortunately, many reviews are planted by competitors or individuals who have something else they are promoting. They can also are written by disgruntled associates who failed because they didn’t follow the “lesson plan.” Obviously, there are legitimate complaints as well, but it often takes thorough investigation to get to them.
#7 Are the marketing materials dynamic and accurate?
It is not your job to create your own marketing materials. They should be supplied by the company, and you should feel proud and confident to use them. They have to be eye catching, because of all of the competition that is out there. They also must clearly and honestly state all the benefits of the product, in addition to describing the other aspects of the business.
#8 Is there a WOW factor to the website and does it have a strong “back office?”
Today, every viable MLM company has a great website to attract customers, as well as people who want to build a team. The key to us is whether or not they have an up-to-date “back office” for those who want to build a large business. This is essential for tracking everything about your personal business, including monitoring how everyone on your team (your downline) is doing.
#9 What kind of support will the company give me?
Without support, the MLM business is very tough. The good news is that most MLM companies have a well thought-out marketing plan, as well as an action plan to promote both the product and to help you recruit independent distributors. Most MLM companies also offer extensive training, in addition to company-wide, regional and local events. The biggest breakdown in support usually has more to do with your sponsor – the person who introduced you to and enrolled you in the company – and the team that he or she is on. Some sponsors are new to the MLM system and have had no real experience in business world to offer. When this is the case, you need to find someone in your upline that can mentor you. Sometimes this seems nearly impossible. It should be noted that, regardless of the experience of your sponsor or those in your upline willing to help you, it really gets down to you and your own efforts. I know many network marketers who become highly successful with zero help from others.
#10 What is the compensation program and how does it work?
I put this question last, knowing full well that it is one of the most important issues to some. After all, MLM is a business. However, without receiving positive responses to the other nine questions, does the compensation program really matter? Don’t mistake us for thinking that how, when, and how much you are paid isn’t critical. It is extremely important and takes the most time to understand. It requires that you read the fine print of the agreement to get all of the facts before signing to join as a distributor. Misunderstanding the full compensation program causes more unhappiness than any other issue. Knowing this, Home Based Business Success Center has researched hundreds of MLM companies, paying particular attention to their compensation program. This has put us in a position to assist you in finding a company that meets your financial needs and goals.

I Don't Want to Pay Money, Booooo Boooooo!



People like this really get under my skin. This is someone who in my opinion is lazy and spends a lot of time in life crying. It was not that long ago I was living in the streets with out a penny in my pocket, dreaming of ways to make money and go forth into a livable life. I never shed a tear about it. However, you even mention to someone they might have to pay a start up cost to work online at home and O BOY...... grab the tissue paper.

This is simple, if you don't understand that every business in the world has some start up cost you shouldn't be doing business in the first place. Yes, online businesses have start up cost also!

There are some differences though. The biggest being that when you start your own business from brick you are probably going to be paying a lot more then you would for a website store front. A website store front might cost you about 300 if you pay someone to do it (or about 25$ if you do it the way I tell people to do it).

This is why I'm looking at MLM. MLMs are designed so that I can work online and with a ready made product. MLM solves all of my problems. I'm going to pay a low price to work with a ready made business and that's my start up.

Its really that simple! You can not say one day "I want to own my own business online but I have no idea what to sell" then cry later " I was looking around for things to market online and they all want money". That is ridicules! You have to understand that that price, that start up price, is going to set you up at home. They are giving you the material needed to work from home. DO you know how to build a website? Can you build a back office? Maybe a second webpage also ( a capture page )? Are you willing to pay even more money to brand yourself? I can tell you these things add up! I'm not in that position these days. I'll be looking for a company that offeres me their whole package for one simple start up cost. When I find the right company believe me I wont be crying " I want a business but I don't want to start", LOL!

The next step for me is to start looking for the right MLM.

O, I did forget to mention.... for those of you that don't fully understand that starting any business cost money you can choose to look at it like I do...... get it for FREE!

Yes..... go down to your Secretary of States office, apply for a sole-proprietorship (50$), give it a name ( Mine is BTM of Bottom to Top Marketing), make sure they labeled you has a home based business. This way you are entitled to up to 8,000$ in Tax returns, meaning ( because you should never spend even a fraction of that on any online business) you should not just be able to start for free but you should also be in the money right away.

Now, If that does not make sense  or if it makes sence and you are saying to yourself right now " I HAVE TO DO THAT TO"....... you might has well just go ahead and settle into you lazy-boy chair, turn on some Law and Order, pull that tissue box a little closer, and settle in for what's going to be the rest of your life.

Me....... I just came out of the gutter..... I'm NOT going back!

Note: Above is a vid I'm using to show people that in act there are huge tax incentives for having a home based business. However, it is not the one I wanted to post.  In the one I wanted it was actually said that the startup cost of any MLM in included in this Tax right off (for the non-believers).

To MLM Or To Not Home Based Business

Does this really need to be a question? I mean, if we could all work from home wouldn't we? In many cases ( or at least mine ) there is really no other option if you want to make another income. Being leveraged today is important. We live in an unsteady world. One day you have a job and the next you don't. This has happened to me before and this is also why I'm not going to take extra steps to make sure I have a back up plan in life now.

One thing I have noticed is that when people think of a home based business they automatically think MLM. It makes sense, has most ( not all ) home based businesses are MLMs ( of at least my experience has told me). However, there are many home based businesses that are not MLM.
For example, drop shipping is not typically an MLM eighter is an online store (personal web site).


I happen to like MLMs though. I like that fact that if done right and you do become a success..... you will make money for the rest of you life basically for free. This is of course a residual income. I see nothing wrong with that. However, a lot of people do. They hear "residual income" they then think "MLM" then its off to "scheme" then you hear " they will rip you off". This is bad thinking! Honestly, if this is where you are at you might has well settle in for what you are doing now and hope for the best. Extra income from home more often then not comes with residual income.

Home based businesses and MLMs almost go hand in hand when it comes to making money with someone else's product. Its simply the way it is.... and I like the thinking. I don't have to invent anything, I can do it from home, make my own hours, and hope fully make extra money at it ( we will be seeing about that soon enough).

All together my point here is this:
Before starting a online business, reather a MLM or home based business you should consider what exactly it is you want to do. From drop shipping to having your own store online to holding someone else's MLM there and many pros and cons.

I'm going MLM right now because it suites me the best. I want to start work ASAP. I have little money and no product of my own. I need a type of ready mad business to begin. I have the means to do it (computer, phone, internet and printer) I also want the residual incomes on top of my commission. For me MLM makes plenty of sense. Go home based MLM or go home!
