Home Based Business Dream

home based business dream“Living the home based business dream” is something a lot of people seem to misunderstand.

I do love working from home. I’ve been doing this since early 2000. I raised 5 kids living this home based business dream and I can’t imagine doing life any other way.

I do enjoy the freedom of being able to (mostly) set my own schedule. I don’t have to ask for time off. I don’t have to worry about living on someone else’s schedule.  I take vacations when I want to. I sleep until I don’t want to (most of the time).

I love the idea that if I want to increase my income, I have only to generate more results. Most employees know that generating more results will create more profits for the company but not in their own paycheck. In my world, more results translates to more income.

So, in many ways, this home based business dream is kind of like a dream come true.

But, as always, there is more to the story. The other part of this home based business dream is that we have to PRODUCE results.

How many of us know an employee or two that doesn’t really carry their weight but somehow continues to collect a check? If you don’t carry your weight in your home based business, the home based business dream can quickly become a home based business nightmare. The income drops. And, that’s not good for anybody.

Building a home based business can cause you to lose some friends. In the book, “You are a Bad Ass”, author Jen Sincero says:

“You’ll probably have to do things you never imagined you’d do because if any of your friends saw you doing it, or spending money on it, you’d never live it down. Or they’d be concerned about you. Or they’d stop being friends with you because now you’re all weird and different. You’ll have to believe in things you can’t see as well as some things that you have full-on proof are impossible. You’re gonna have to push past your fears, fail over and over again and make a habit of doing things you’re not so comfy doing. You’re going to have to let go of old, limiting beliefs and cling to your decision to create the life you desire like your life depends on it.

Because guess what? Your life does depend on it.”

When I started building my home based business, a lot of folks that I had considered friends began to question my choices. They wanted to know why I was working such crazy hours when they were meeting up for drinks. They wanted to know why I was reading so much personal development stuff and hanging positive photos on my walls. They didn’t understand why I would rather spend a weekend at a seminar than hanging out, watching movies, drinking, and just “having fun”.

I have no problem with hanging out. I love watching movies. I enjoy a great scotch and a cigar.

But when I was building my home based business, especially in the beginning, I was solely focused as if my life depended on it … because it did.

Were the hours and dollars invested worth it? Absolutely! I highly recommend that everyone have at least a side business as a home based business.

Making Money From Home

making money from homeMaking Money From Home –  There is no real “secret” to it. If you can help someone solve a problem, you can make money. If you can help someone solve a problem from home, you can make money from home.

Typically, when I talk to someone about making money from home, they start thinking about how they would have to learn how to write code, create an app, invent a new technology, etc…

But think about this: There are people out there who have already written code, created apps, invented technology, disrupted industries, and created some really great stuff. These are smart people. I know I couldn’t do the work they do.

And, that is where the opportunity is found. What these people need are people that can help them get these products, apps, and tech out to customers.

And, that really is the big secret to making money from home.

I have been a home based entrepreneur for more than 20 years. I have never written code. I haven’t developed any apps. I haven’t invented anything. I play music around town  at night, and I work on connecting buyers and sellers during the day.

Did you get that last part? I work on connecting buyers and sellers. I didn’t write any code. I didn’t invent anything. I connected myself with people that did all that and I introduce these services to potential customers.

For example:

I recently partnered with a company that has some amazing technology. They have developed a web site that saves travelers money. All the customer has to do is use the web site. When they book a trip, they save. The customer loves the site. Who wouldn’t, right?

The company that built the site and manages the site doesn’t do the marketing. They look for people like me. What I do is give away the web site to potential customers for free. When the customer uses the site, I get paid based on how much money they save on their trips. These customers travel for business or pleasure. When they save, I get paid.

I do all this from home.

This same company is introducing technology in the Ride Share market (like Uber and Lyft). Did you know you can get paid every time someone takes a ride and you don’t even have to be the driver?

Imagine being the person that gives away a bunch of Ride Share apps and you get paid every time someone uses the app. Yeah… that’s a fun way to make money from home!

I don’t spend any time trying to figure out how to write apps, create new tech, or invent the next big thing. I just connect the people that do that stuff with the people that want that stuff.

That has been my big secret to making money from home.

Home Based Business With a Proven System

home based business with a proven systemWhat if I could show you a home based business with a proven system for generating new leads, following up, and helping you close more sales? Do you think you might be able to win with a proven system and professional leadership?

Using this system, I have been able to generate over 100 customers and build a team of more than 100 members ( two distinct and separate groups) in the first 6 months. And, things are just getting started.

What I have is a system that lets me tap in to the power of social media along with people I meet to see who is interested in either saving money, making money, or both.

When they want to know more, they simply click a link. From there, my system takes over. They get the information they want to see and they make their own decision.

Does it work? In just over 6 months, this system helped me generate over 100 customers and build a team of over 100 members who are doing the same thing.

I believe anyone can build a home based business with a proven system. The key is to plug in to the system and consistently follow a few very simple steps. My role is to show you those steps and help you along your journey as you follow through.

Why MLM Doesn’t Work

why mlm doesn't workLet’s talk about why MLM doesn’t work.

There are some harsh realities in this world of MLM. Most of us try to breeze through life without ever facing these realities. Here is an experience many of us have had, before:

You walk in to a local store, looking for whatever is on your mind, that day. The store owner greets you with a smile, and welcomes you by name. She asks how you’ve been. She excitedly tells you about her upcoming vacation. She can’t wait to get away for a while. She leans in and says something like, “I paid WAY too much but I have got to get away for a little bit!“. You both laugh and you tell her, “Good for you! Enjoy your much needed time away.” You find what you were looking for and go along your way.

She’s a nice lady. I hope she has a great time.“, you think to yourself. You’re glad you shop there. Part of you looks forward to hearing about her trip when she gets back.

A couple of weeks later, you get a call from a friend. She is very excited and quickly starts telling you about a new business opportunity she has found. Someone she knows just started a business helping people get better deals on travel. “All you have to do is get a few people to sign up and you start making money, too!  This is sooooo easy!

You catch her excitement and you say, “I’ll take a look. Send me the info.“. You hang up the phone and you give a little grin. You go on with your day. A couple weeks later, you run into this same friend at the mall and you ask, “Hey. How are you doing with that business opportunity you called me about?

Oh.“, she says, “I gave that thing up. I couldn’t get
anybody else to sign up. I tried but it just didn’t work.

I’m sorry to hear that.” you say. “You seem so excited. What was it, anyway?

She looks down, shrugs her shoulders, and says, “It was  one of those MLM things.

Of course, I made this story up. But the theme is real and probably hits really close to home for many of us. Most of us have someone we know that tried “one of those mlm things” and had similar results.

Sadly, this story is all too common and it’s a good reason why mlm doesn’t work for a lot of people. These “toe-dippers” and “dabblers” give the industry a bad name because they think they can get rich by just signing up and talking to a few people they just KNOW would crush this thing!

How did this happen? The simplest one word reason I can give is: Mindset.

Let’s compare:

The shop owner we talked about in the first story probably invested tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in to her store. She had real estate costs, inventory costs, taxes, payroll, insurance, liability coverage, and more. And, that was before she even opened. She knew she could forget about any free time for a while. That vacation she mentioned will probably be the first day off she has had since she opened the store.

IF she’s lucky, she will be able to generate enough cash flow to keep the store open and some income for herself to provide for her family. Profits MIGHT come later if  she manages to stay in business.

Her commitment level was “all in” from the first day and she has committed herself to making a successful run of it. Her family is counting on her.

The friend was, understandably, lured by the idea of a fast return. The promise of potential financial freedom was certainly appealing. Who wouldn’t enjoy an awesome life full of fun, travel and abundance? Another appealing factor was the very low barrier to entry. Her start up cost was probably somewhere between a few hundred and a couple thousand dollars. Real estate costs, inventory, payroll, etc, were not a factor. She had the word of her sponsor and had seen a reflection of a life that was available.

The part she missed was this:

MLM is a business. When people think they are going to be rich by inviting a few people over a couple of weeks, they experience what they believe to be failure and this is why mlm doesn’t work for them. They didn’t actually fail. In most cases, they just gave up before they had learned and developed the skills to become successful.

Building your MLM business part-time can absolutely be done. In fact, most people start part-time, as they should. They add their mlm business to their daily schedule. They work nights and weekends. The smart move is to transition to doing MLM full-time only AFTER your business has reached the point that your job is actually getting in the way.

The reality of the successful business people in MLM is this:

They know that this model is actually genius. There is an incredibly low barrier to entry. Pretty much anyone can get started at some level and build up from there. By learning and applying a few skills, anyone can learn how to build their  mlm business. You can literally build your MLM business to whatever level you are willing to work for.

These folks who “try it out” are why “mlm doesn’t work”.

These folks who don’t get the proper training are “why mlm doesn’t work”.

If you want to experience success in MLM, get ready to learn new skills, try new things, and pick up new habits. Be prepared to spend some time learning and developing those skills.

When I first got started in MLM, over 20 years ago, I failed miserably. I thought my experience in corporate America made me way smart enough to be successful in one of these MLM deals. I was wrong. I made good money at my job. I was in sales. “I got this.” I thought to myself. I was another reason “why mlm doesn’t work” for so many. But things changed for me.

When I found a good coach, was willing to humble myself and learn new skills, I started experiencing success and was able to support a family of 7 with the residual income model that MLM makes available.

What are your thoughts on these options of starting and building your own business? I would love to get your thoughts.

Want to see the model I am using? I can save that store owner a LOT of money on her vacations! Check it out here:

Network Marketing in Houston

Network Marketing in HoustonAre you looking in to network marketing in Houston? It might be a good idea for us to talk. Imagine having someone right in your area that can work with you to help you build your network marketing business.

My name is Brian Rooney. I have been a full-time network marketing professional since the year 2000. I’m not as interested in “pitching” you as I am to finding out more about you and how we might be able to work together.

My own motivation to get involved in network marketing was the fact that I was missing out on some amazing “firsts” with my 5 young children. I wanted to be the dad that was actually involved in their lives. So, we began our journey.

We learned a lot of things the hard way. Starting out, we didn’t have a good mentor or coach. Eventually, we found one and it changed everything for us. I have been “successfully unemployed” since the year 2000. I enjoy building the business and I enjoy meeting other network marketing enthusiasts, whether they be full-time or part-time.

As I live in the Houston area (Spring/Woodlands), I am always interested in meeting others involved in network marketing in Houston and surrounding areas. We don’t even have to be in the same company. Sometimes, it just helps to know and interact with other professionals. Nobody get us quite like us!

I’m actually building my business on a global scale. I also enjoy interacting with my team and other professionals on the local level.

So, if you are already involved with a company you love and getting the results you want, stick with it! Let’s get to know each other.

If you are looking at other possibilities for network marketing in Houston, let’s set up a time to talk. Start with this online presentation and we can set up a time to talk more and maybe even meet up:

I look forward to hearing from you and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have for me.

Can You Really Build a Business Online?

build a business onlineCan You Really Build A Business Online?

I’ve been a home based entrepreneur since the year 2000. More than just the allure of being able to build a business online, I wanted to be the dad that was actually home for his kids.

This journey started a long time ago and I have learned a lot along the way. The biggest thing I have found is that the basics will always apply. We have to consistently do the basics to build a business online … any business.

When I get someone started in this business, the big question I typically get is, “How do I find people to talk to?”

My first response is: “Open your eyes. They are literally everywhere“.

In all honesty, I really do believe that we can and should talk to just about anyone and everyone about what we’re doing; especially when what we’re doing can change lives in such a dramatic way.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that everyone we talk to will be as excited as we are.

My own parents shut me down completely when I approached them with this idea of being able to build a business online.opportunity.

And that’s my job … present the product and the opportunity. Tom “Big Al” Schreiter explains it like this:

Our job description is to get people to make a decision about our product, service, or opportunity.” And that is my goal: To get a “yes” or a “no”.

I get told “no” all the time.

But … and this is how I build my business … I also get told “yes”. It’s all about the numbers.

I think of my role as being a “decision collector”. Sometimes, I collect a “no”. Sometimes, I collect a “yes”.

These are the facts of life. Sometimes, a “no” later becomes a “yes”. The point is … I just keep presenting the opportunity and let them make a decision.

Now, we are talking about how to build a business online. Let me be very clear: Working online doesn’t mean “instead of prospecting”. It’s just a different method of prospecting.

I generate online mlm leads by promoting my web site. I use a number of strategies (both free and paid) to get people to my web site.

Once someone gets to my web site, the begin seeing information that is designed to help them make a decision.

Those that are not interested can simply close their browser or go to a different web page.

Those that are interested can fill out a form on my web site requesting more information.

Once they get the information, they have another decision to make. They either want to know more or they are simply not interested in learning more. When they are interested, that’s when I reach out to them to help them get the answers they need to make the next decision: Become a customer or become a team member.

While all this is going on, my autoresponder is following up with emails to share information, talk about success stories, remind them I’m available, and keep them updated.

Using an autoresponder is like having a 24/7 prospecting machine working for me to attract and identify some of the best prospects available: People that are already looking for this kind of information. They are at least curious about what it takes to build a business online.

Let’s review the process:

1) My job: Promote my web site. A web site is worthless without people actually visiting it.

2) My web site’s job: Present the basic information and invite them to learn more.

3) My web site then collects information from those visitors that want to know more and passes that information on to me via my AutoResponder.

4) I get on the phone with those that want to talk more.

5) While this is happening, my AutoResponder keeps following up with them via email.

6) They make a decision to become a customer, a team member, or just keep doing what they were doing before we talked.

That’s it. I have no real concern about which decision they make. I just want to help them get the information so they can make the decision that is right for them.

I follow this process over and over again. Some days, I get no new leads, at all. Some days, I get 4, 5, 6 leads at a time.

By combining this online strategy with offline methods, I’m able to constantly have people to talk to about my business.

Would YOU like to see how the presentation works?

I’m happy to show you. And, you can just remove yourself from my system at any time if you decide it’s not for you.

How To Get Your First 10 Customers

first 10 customersGetting your first 10 customers is a big milestone in your business with our team. Our culture is all about being “customer centric” and helping our team members get those customers as quickly as possible.

Remember … we aren’t trying to “sell” anything to anyone. We are simply showing people how to save money on something they are already doing or planning to do.

One of my favorite ways to get customers is to send the people in my iPhone a simple text message. The best thing to do is to get this done quickly. (Success loves speed!)

My message looks like this:

I am launching a new service that helps travelers save money on hotels, cars, resorts, etc… I am giving away a free site you can use any time. No cost to you. Would you like one?

Your name here

When I do this, a few things happen:

1) My Message Gets Ignored. It happens.
2) I get told “stop”. It happens, especially when it’s someone I don’t know well. When I get these, I remove them from my phone.
3) They say something like “Sounds good” or “Sure, thanks”. When they reply like this, I send them a buumerang! Some days, I pick up 10 or more customers before  lunch!

If they start asking me, “What is this?” or “How does it work?” I say

Let me send you a code. You can claim your free site and take it for a test drive. You will be amazed at some of the savings you can find!

If they push or resist, just move on. Tell them,

Any time you’re ready to save on a trip you plan to take, let me know. I’ll hook you up.

Then move on to sending the next message. This is the simplest customer acquisition model I have ever seen. I use it daily!

I also talk to people while I’m out. Folks are talking about the trip they just took, plan to take, or hope to take. I say to them:

I can give you a free travel site that will absolutely save you money on that trip. Would you like me to send it to you via text or email?

Then, I send them a buumerang!

Don’t complicate it. Keep it simple, and before you know it, you will have customers stacking up in your Dashboard building your Perpetual Residual Income Builder!

When you do this consistently, you will begin building residual income with your phone!

How “kewl” is that?!?

What If You Could Create Residual Income On Your Phone?

Yes, I can show you how to create residual income on your phone.

Create Residual Income On Your PhoneMost of the people who read this post are looking for a way to supplement their income. They are not necessarily looking to quit their job or change careers. They don’t really want to take on another part-time job. And, they definitely don’t want to push products on their friends and family. Sound like you?

I have really good news for you. Many people just like you, from around the world, are partnering up with our team to create residual income in a relatively quick time frame.

In fact, I can show you EXACTLY how to boost your income by a few thousand dollars per year in just minutes per day. Try asking your boss if you could do that at your job.

If your goals are higher, as mine are, and you can answer these questions, I can show you how to reach whatever level you are interested in achieving.

Let me start by asking you a couple of questions:

Question One: If I could show you how to create residual income on your phone, is that something you would want to know more about? This is real, supplemental, long-term income that can grow to whatever level you are willing to work for.

Question Two: What if your big “job description” was to invite people to watch a short online video that did all the work for you?Create Residual Income On Your PhoneRight now, we have people all over the world watching this online video, every day. You could earn hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars in residual income by simply referring others to watch this same video. 

Here’s a question: Think back about the last $10,000 you earned. What did you actually have to do in order to get that income?

I’m willing to bet it was a lot harder than sharing a video, right?

Do I have your attention?

I am not trying to sell you anything or convince you of anything. My goal is simply to identify people who are interested and open to the idea of creating a second stream of income.

create residual income on your phoneSo, this is the part where you are thinking, “Ok … what’s the pitch, here?”.

Here it is:

We have found a way to capitalize on one of the most lucrative industries in the world.

Currently, this industry is an 8 Trillion Dollar industry!

One thing history has taught us about wealth is that is gets created when people position themselves in front of major trends before they happen. When they do this, they are able to change their financial status significantly in a relatively short amount of time.

create residual income on your phoneUber was thought up while some buddies were out having a good time. Those that got involved early are worth millions, today. Those who said “No thanks” are kicking themselves, now.

Amazon was started in a garage to sell used books. Many people got wealthy on that deal. Many said “No thanks”. Think they regret it?

There was a time when nobody had heard of Facebook.  Those days are long gone and many people have become wealthy on that one. Same with Google.

So, what is this 8 Trillion Dollar industry I am talking about?

It is the Travel industry.

This global industry includes everything from hotels to cars, cruises, flights, resorts, excursions … everything travel related! And the best part for us is: This is just the beginning!create residual income on your phoneBut let me get back to the “pitch” part:

What if you could be a part of a global initiative to “Uberize” the 8 Trillion dollar travel industry using our unique, customer acquisition model that basically spins off cash for you? What if you  could participate in what we like to call a Perpetual Residual Income Builder? And … what if you didn’t have to sell anything or create a new buying habit to do it?

I get that may be a lot to take in but if you will follow me here I can show you how to actually create residual income on your phone. And I am talking about a real, lasting, residual income that is much easier and faster than anything you have ever done before.

Remember that part where I talked about how we are going to “Uberize” the travel industry? Let’s take a look at that concept:

I think it’s safe to say you’ve heard of Uber. You probably have their app on your phone. I use Uber on a regular basis, myself. As a consumer, it just makes sense. You push a button and a driver shows up.

Here’s the part you want to think about:

When Uber first started, it was just an idea. Some people believed in the vision and others did not. A few short years later, Uber became a multi-billion dollar company.

How did they do that?

People were invited to create FREE accounts. When they needed to get from point A to point B they just opened their app or website, clicked a few buttons and BOOM, they booked a ride for much cheaper.

Word quickly spread about the savings and ease of use. As word spread, more and more people got their free Uber app or created accounts with Uber’s web site. As a result, people by the millions created FREE accounts. Uber now has millions of customers around the world!

So my question is, how much money have you made from Uber growing to a multi billion dollar company?

Not a dime, right?

Maybe you weren’t invited in the beginning. I know I wasn’t. You are being invited, right now, to position yourself in front of this massive movement in the travel industry.

Our company is modeling this same customer acquisition model. We offer customers a free travel booking engine. They are already going to book a flight, hotel, car, all-inclusive week, cruise … you get the idea.create residual income on your phoneWhen our customer uses the Free travel booking engine we give them, they save money.

And, Here’s The Best Part:

We get paid based on how much the customer SAVES when they travel!

Our customer acquisition model requires zero dollars in traditional advertising. We can, 100% of the time, get a new loyal customer cheaper than any company out there. The “big boys” are spending millions and millions of dollars in advertising.

We aren’t spending money to get customers. This means that in almost every case we can offer a much deeper discount to all of our customers in the form of savings and because that customer was acquired at no cost, 50% of the savings goes to you as a referral commission.

Let That Sink In! 

Still not sure? Let me give you an example:

You give Shirley a code. She uses that code to get her travel booking engine and she books her next vacation. She saves $500 by booking with the site you gave her. You get paid $250 just for helping her save money on the vacation she was going to book anyway! No convincing. No “selling”. Just give her a free site!

create residual income on your phoneThis is just one example of out of thousands of customers our company has already acquired. The part you want to get is that we have team members building significant, secondary income streams for just helping people save money on something they were going to do anyway!Remember that part where I told you we are getting paid to simply have people watch a video?

Here is how that works:

All our team is doing is inviting people around the world to watch an interactive online presentation on their phone or computer. The presentation goes in to much better detail about how powerful and lucrative this system is.

The system allows you to quickly invite people to watch. When they are interested, they can review the information at their leisure to get the details.

So here is a question for you: Who Do you know that has ever booked a flight, rented a car, gone on a cruise, or stayed at a hotel? Do you think they would  like to save money the next time they do it?

And who do you know that might be interested in making some extra income, has enough motivation to share a link, and is willing to learn a few things along the way?

Seriously … if you thought of just a few people from these questions, then you’ve got a real shot in a strong opportunity to make some serious supplemental income.

This is actually how you can create residual income on your phone. Right now, people all over the world are watching the video I told you about. I send out the link using my cell phone. Many of those are taking action and getting involved in our system.

People are going to keep traveling. Are you going to get paid when they do? Or are you going to be one of those who look back and wish you had taken action?

What’s the next step? I invite you to actually view the video I mentioned. Then, let’s set up a time to talk about the possibilities.

Yours In Success,

Brian Rooney
