What is the Secret of Motivating People?


Quit trying to motivate people.

You can't motivate people.

The Future

"The future ain't what it used to be."
--Yogi Berra

Is that ever an understatement!

Folks, time has run out...

If you don't have a Plan B,
you better get one fast.

SeaAloe is the best Plan B in the
home business arena, bar none.

But even with the best option available,
you still need to know what you're doing...

And you better be associated with someone
who has been down the road already and
been successful.

You'd better get a part-time or full-time business

of your own going while you can.

SeaAloe Reacts to Economic Turmoil

SeaAloe ( ) appreciates the dedication
of our Customers and Distributors and is very aware that in these
potentially troubling economic times, every dollar matters.

We also know that when you decide to add something as vital
as SeaAloe to your daily health regimen, or decide to participate
in one SeaAloe’s Distributorship opportunities, those decisions
require a great degree of confidence in stability and future of SeaAloe.

Therefore, we appreciate the opportunity to give our Customers,
Distributors and the public an overview of the state of SeaAloe, Inc.

SeaAloe is a privately held company and relies on no stock
transactions or equity for any funding or capital whatsoever.

SeaAloe is 100% debt free, and relies on no credit, flooring,
advances or consignments. The SeaAloe product is paid for in
full at the time of manufacture and there is (currently and
always) finished, bottled, paid for and ready to ship inventory
on hand to meet 4-8 weeks of sales needs.

SeaAloe can be reached for orders, questions or support
M-F 6:30 AM to 5:30 PM Pacific at 1-800-732-1150.

SeaAloe employs only professionals, no outsourcing or 3rd parties,
and the average customer service employee or supervisor has
5+ years experience with Liquid Nutritional Supplements.

All of the outside suppliers SeaAloe relies upon (packaging
materials, bottles, printers, raw materials, etc.) have been
in business for 20+ years, and several key suppliers have been
in business for 40-50 years. All are stable companies with
established, reliable track records.

All overhead expenses, such as shipping bills, data and
telephone services, etc. are paid in full immediately,
with no revolving or long-term balances.

As part of the wellness industry, SeaAloe fills a need that
America will never be without, and as people live longer,
as stress and health care uncertainty rise, and the foundational
benefits of good nutrition continue to make headlines,
our industry grows daily.

This legendary formulation has become part of people’s lives
over the last 15 years, and continues to grow in popularity.

SeaAloe has seen an increase in daily sales for each of
the last 3 months, bucking the national retail trends.

Additionally, long term numbers are just as solid,
as 2008 year-to-date sales outpace figures from
Jan - Oct 2007.

While the past and present look great, we are
pleased to foresee an even better future!

We’ve recently launched many marketing expansion programs,
including nationwide Radio, Direct Mail, Print ads, and
we have TV advertising in pre-production for launch in
the first quarter of 2009.

For those of you in the Southeast, you can meet many of
the Executives and Leaders of SeaAloe at our upcoming
Success Seminar in Charlotte, NC on Jan 23-25.

Details are here:

SeaAloe thanks you for your continued support, and appreciates
the opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives
now and for many years to come!

The Greatest Opportunity of Your Lifetime

Our government leaders have allowed
the Wall Street financiers to wreck
our economic system.

This is not a political message,
as both political parties share
responsibility for this mess.

Many good middle-class families will
be hurt very badly as a result...

YOU do NOT have to be one of them.

Situations like the one we find ourselves in
present great opportunities for people that
will take positive action.

Many people will create generational FORTUNES
in the next couple of years while things are
in turmoil.

YOU can be one of those people...

ALL it takes is a DECISION.

You must recognize the TRUTH and the REALITY
of what is going on right now, and NOT listen to
what the politicians are telling you.

It is not in their best interests for you to know
the truth and reality of what has happened,
and what is going to happen.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Immediately create a vehicle to make extra money.
2. Invest that money in paying off your debts first.
3. Next, invest that money in silver and gold coins.

A SeaAloe Infomercial Business System is the
best passive/residual money system that I know of...

If you don't do that, at least do something.

I'm not a financial planner...

(Of course, if I was, I'd be in the same mess they are now. )

However, I do understand finance and history.

Call me to learn how you can come out of this
global economic crisis in better shape than
you entered it.

SeaAloe Business Tip - Indecision

Indecision is a fatal decision.
-- Author Unknown

Now is not the time for indecision.

The economic climate of the entire planet has changed radically.

You simply must take action to secure your family's well-being.

Your job is no longer enough.

You must have your own source(s) of income
to offset the changes to the playing field
that are taking place now.

Your job is no longer secure.

Raises are out of the question.

Hyper-inflation will begin soon.

You must have a vehicle that will grow with the inflation.

Owning your own business gives you options that

an employee does not have and will never have.

The time to act is NOW.

SeaAloe direct response network marketing business
is a simple and inexpensive turn-key business that
can put you in the driver's seat of your future.

Don't let indecision cause your family to suffer.

Call me today to see how simple it is to

get this business set up and running.

My New SeaAloe Business

So you just started a new business…

SeaAloe distributorship.

So what do you do now?

Well, perhaps your first step should be to
make sure that you’re “set up to receive.”

Read this post –

SeaAloe Business Tip: Are You Set Up to Receive?

Next, I’d focus on getting some local customers.

Enough to move my qualifying order.

Want to do that fast?

Go to your local health food stores.

Health food stores have a ready-made customer base
that you would not otherwise have access to.

And, health food stores won’t be buying single bottles…

They’ll buy 3 – 6 – 12 bottles at a time.

You just get a couple of health food stores
and you're qualifying order is covered,
and it will be easy to get into profit.

While you’re at it, get some local ads running
for some more customers…

They can be a great source of referrals.

I’ve written several articles on how to do local marketing.

Just go thru the archives on the right column of this blog.

If you need any help, give me a call.

SeaAloe Compensation Plan for Consumers

Now, even your customers and product users
can share in SeaAloe’s success.

You don’t have to be a “business builder” to benefit
from referring other people to the Sea Aloe Liquid
Vitamins and Minerals

With NO fee for becoming an affiliate,
Sea Aloe
has “broken the mold” of old-school MLM, in favor
of today’s more user-friendly affiliate referral

marketing business model.

Previously, only Premier-Pak (12 bottle) business builders
were able to benefit from the lucrative commissions paid
for referring new consumers.

Now, all We-Pak (3 bottles) customers can become an

affiliate and earn $25 for referring other We-Pak
(3 bottles) customers and $15 for referring i-Pak
(1 bottle) customers.

And, if you refer someone that buys a Premier-Pak
(12 bottles), you can get either $100 towards your
own Premier Pak or a FREE We-Pak.

All of this gives your customers a way to earn

extra spending money or discounted and even
FREE SeaAloe.

Please note that you will need to qualify by

purchasing your own We-Pak in the same
month to earn commissions on your sales.

For details, give me a call and I’ll explain the
program to you and answer all of your questions.

SeaAloe Retail-To-Recruit Business System

Lead With The Product While Selling "The Dream"

If the product doesn't make sense,
the business won't either.

Your goal is to develop a
culture of "products first".

This will protect your business
and secure your future because
business has a natural rhythm:

Up and down.

So, you need to anchor to the
strength of your product!

This will stabilize your organization even
when you experience rough waters.

In contrast to MLM, take a look at McDonalds...

With McDonalds, every franchise owner can
potentially be successful, and most are.

McDonalds works because
the fundamental business unit,
the single store, makes a profit...

So, the other stores
(as in, your downline)
are profitable too.

Your typical MLM company is
promoting a sales process
that fundamentally loses money.

Let me explain...

For "the rest of the story," go to:

Give me a call and let's talk
about getting customers...

Why Choose the SeaAloe Business

There are a lot of home based businesses
to choose from today.

Most of them won't work for you.

(You may have already found that out!)

I've been a few businesses that didn't work out myself.

Losing money on a home based business is bad enough,
but the self-esteem and self-confidence you lose is even

more costly.

In most cases it wasn't your fault
that your business didn't work out.

Most people that start a home based business
just don't have the real life experience to know

what to look for in a business because no one
has shown them and they've just never done it

Then, you "join" some "business opportunity"
and the first thing you learn is the company
has it's hand out for your money...

And your upline has his hand out...

And they're overcharging you for:

- Products
- Shipping and Handling
- Brochures
- CDs and DVDs
- Websites
- Tools
- Training
- Leads
- Anything and Everything...

I could go on and on,
don't get me started.

You'd think they'd want to
help you build a business...

But, all they want is your money because
they don't have any REAL CUSTOMERS!

You and other unknowing distributors
ARE the ONLY customers...

And they need to bleed you dry before you find out!

I know, I been there too...

Well, there is one company that puts
the independent distributor first.

That company is

What does Sea Aloe offer that the other companies don't?

Well, here are just a few things:

=> A proven product that is not some bizarre concoction
that only the aborigines in the Amazon knew about until
some lost MLMer "discovered" it and brought to Western

=> A proven product that regular people actually want and buy.

=> A 90-Day Money Back Guarantee to back it up.

=> A customer friendly company that takes care of YOUR customers.

=> Very low shipping and handling on products.

=> FREE shipping and handling on tools, CDs, DVDs and brochures.

=> Very low cost on tools, CDs, DVDs, and brochures.

=> FREE New Distributor Kit.

=> FREE e-commerce website.

=> You can get paid weekly.

=> And lots more

(This post is getting too long, I'll cover more later.)

SeaAloe is a product focused company,
NOT a money game like many other
home business "opportunities".

"Confusion is a wonderful thing -
when you're not the one being confused."

=> Your competitors are confused.

They're calling up strangers and pitching
them on getting rich in a MLM pyramid.

that they'll never catch up with you.

A REAL business does mainstream marketing
and develops REAL customers, not people to
"get in" that are looking to win the lottery.

=> You can profit by understanding
that this is a REAL business.

A REAL business has a REAL marketing plan
and SALES SYSTEM to find, sell and service

=> You can profit by taking ACTION.

SeaAloe Hurricane Gustav Income

I'm a "full-time" SeaAloe distributor.

"Full-time" may not be the correct word,
because I do not WORK full-time, I make
a "full-time" living marketing SeaAloe.

I only "work" about an hour a week, because
I took the time a year and a half ago to set up
my business so that it runs on autopilot.

Anyway, with that said, I live in
Baton Rouge, Louisiana...

We were hit by a hurricane, Gustav,
on September 1, 2008.

We lost electricity for 14 days...

We lost Internet service for 12 days...

We lost land line phone service for days...

We lost long distance service for days...

Cell phone service was spotty...

Stores were closed, gasoline was in very short supply...

Many people were unable to work,
and as a result, had no income...

Anyway, things were difficult, to say the least.

I was totally out of contact with customers and
unable to see what was going on in my business.

Here's the punchline -

Every Wednesday I got a commission
check in the mail from Sea Aloe.

This was a real blessing.

Can you imagine how even more difficult
life would have been with no income in
such a trying time?

We had to buy a generator - $900.00

We had to buy 10 gallons of gas per day to run it.

We need lots of batteries for electric lanterns and radios.

We needed cash to help neighbors and our church.

And, with no ability to work, I still got paid because
I had set up a simple little home-based
business a
year and a half ago.

I don't know where you live, and you may not
live in an area that gets hurricanes...

But, what about floods, tornadoes, ice storms,
forest fires, or earthquakes?

Or, in this day and age, your natural disaster
may be in the economic sector.

How secure is your job?

How would an extra $300 a month or $1,000 a month
or $10,000 a month, or even more change your peace
of mind and financial security?

The time to do something about your future is NOW.

Not AFTER disaster strikes.

If you need help in setting up a money system
that will pay you long after you do the work,
give me a call, I'll show you the ropes...

It's really easier than you think to set up.

And you DON'T have to call your friends and family
like the Amway guys and other MLMers.

Is Your SeaAloe Business Growing?

There is a Principle of Growth that applies
to all things in the Universe, and it applies
to your SeaAloe business as well...

For example, when exercised,

a muscle grows stronger.

If unused, however, it grows weak and flabby.

It is impossible to stand still.

If you are not growing stronger,
you are growing weaker.

Is your SeaAloe business growing stronger or weaker?

Do you do something to make it stronger every day.

Just as you need to exercise regularly,
you need to build your business regularly.

Do something today.

Start a blog and post your daily
business building activities.

Build Your SeaAloe Business Online

The best way to build any business is offline –
person to person.

That being said, a great way to find more people
to talk to about your business in addition to the
people you know and meet locally, is online.

And, there are plenty of free ways to get your business
message out there on the world wide web, without
having to be a rocket scientist or a teenager…

(You need to know that I am most likely the most
technologically challenged person you will ever know.)

This is just a few of the free ways I use to get
the word out about

1. This blog that you are reading now is free.

SeaAloe Distributor Training and Information
It is also very simple to set up. Look up to the
upper right-hand corner of this page, where it
says, “Create Blog”. Just click on that and
follow the directions.

2. Set up a Squidoo “lens.” I don’t know why
they call them “lenses”, they are just web pages.
See one of my SeaAloe lens at –
SeaAloe on Squidoo

3. Set up a Hub Page. It’s another very user-friendly
and free web page that you can set up. You can see
one of my Hub Pages at –
The Power of Liquid Vitamin Supplements

4. You can write articles and publish them on
Ezine Articles.

These are four of the easiest, free and among
the most powerful things you can do for your
business online.

Build Your SeaAloe Business with Local Advertising

Need more SeaAloe business?

I’ve built my business foundation running
ads in local weekly newspapers.

I’ve been doing this since 1999,
so I’d say it’s working pretty good.

I have customers that are still ordering products
from me month after month, and I haven’t spoken
with them in over EIGHT YEARS.

This is REAL residual income,
wouldn’t you say?

OK, so just how do I go about this?

First, I run product ads looking for customers.

I do NOT run “business opportunity” ads.

I ALWAYS lead with the product,
because I want customers first…

Then, if they want to refer other people
to the product, I help them with that.

I only run my ads in WEEKLY papers.

Not only do they cost less, but
they are a lot more effective.

I run ads in the “ad papers”, like
Thrifty Nickel and Penny Savers.

But, there are also thousands of local
weekly newspapers out there published
in small towns and suburbs.

These papers are gold.

Quite often you can get an ad in
them for just like $5.00 a week.

And many of them are part of a chain,
where someone owns 5 or 8 or 20 publications,
and you can get a great deal if you run your
ad in all of the papers.

Don’t try to sell your product with your ad.

Make your ad short, find out how many words
you get for the minimum price.

You are just looking for people that
are interested in what you have.

You can sell them later.

I run ads offering “Free Information”.

The people that respond are interested in what I have.

My “Free Information Package” will typically include
a cover letter, a product brochure, and a CD or DVD
and an order form where they can order from me at a
“special” price.

That’s it.

And, you don’t have to be limited to your local area.

I run these ads all over the country.

You can find a listing of most local papers at
Gebbie Press.

Church bulletins and newspapers are awesome also.

Many of my best customers have come from a church publication.

So, if you want to build your SeaAloe business,
this is one way that is proven to work.

Best of Success!

SeaAloe Improves Business Plan

SeaAloe Improves Business Plan

Wow, doesn’t that phrase, “Company improves pay plan,”
send shivers down the spine of anyone with any
experience in network marketing?

It sure did me when SeaAloe announced that they
were going to improve their business plan.

First thing that came to my mind was,
“uh-oh, how much is this gonna cost me?”

I’ve been in the network marketing industry for a long time,
and earning a full-time income in it since 1999...

And, I’ve never seen a company in all those years
“improve the pay plan” that it didn’t screw the distributors.

Someone (if not everyone) in the company was gonna lose out.

Either they took money from the part-timer to give to the heavy hitters,
or took money from the heavy hitters to give to the part-timer…

Or, they made qualifying for your bonuses
more difficult so everyone lost out…

Or something.

Anyway, it was ALWAYS bad news when the
company decided to change the comp plan.

So I was already thinking about how I was gonna
replace my lost income when this "new and improved"
business plan took effect...

Well, imagine my delight (and surprise I must add) when
SeaAloe’s new and (really) improved business plan went
into effect on July 1 and I learned that I hadn’t lost a dime!

In fact, they made the business even easier than it was.

Everything in the business plan that I liked (and that was
the reason I marketed SeaAloe), was continuing…

Plus, it was now even easier for me
and the part-timer to make money!

Even customers could refer people and earn.

The big change was that it is now much easier and
less expensive to become a part-time distributor.

You can get in the SeaAloe business now for a $100
product purchase (instead of $300) and earn just
about as much money as the big distributors.

I’ll explain how this works in my next post, but for now,
know that SeaAloe was a great opportunity, and now
it’s in a class all its own.

If you know of a better business plan,
I’d sure like to hear about it.

If you have any questions, give me a call, and I’ll be
happy to explain how the new business plan can
make you extra money easier than ever.

your goal should be to build a

A business that will stand

You Know You Have a Real Business When...

Do you have a REAL business?

Or, are you just playing around?

Do you really believe that your business is for real?

I've found that most people in network marketing
do not treat their business like a REAL business.

And it shows...

In their attitudes, and in their RESULTS.

You know you have a REAL BUSINESS when:

You've set up a bookkeeping system because
you KNOW that you'll be needing to file a
tax return next April.

Do YOU have a bookkeeping system

in place for your business?

That tells a LOT about you.

children later on (like when you die).

Understanding RSS Feeds

Business (the entire world for that matter)
is changing "at the speed of thought."

Keeping up can be very time-consuming.

One of the BEST tools I've found for
keeping up with what's going on in
the world, is an RSS feed and a "reader"

These tools can save you a LOT of TIME.

I'm technologically challenged,
so RSS seemed a mystery to me.

Here is a very simple explanation of RSS and "readers."

Need More Customers for Your SeaAloe Business?

Get Local Customers with Newspaper Advertising

Most network marketers look everywhere

but their own back yard for business...

I've gone "Diamond" twice with nothing
but local customers and "distributors."

How did I do it?

Local advertising.

Where did I advertise?

Small weekly newspapers.

Don't overlook the keyword here:

Weekly papers.

The big city dailies are too expensive.

But, even worse, they don't deliver
customers the way weeklies do.

Weekly papers just plain work better for this.

And, after you get this working in your own

local area, you can branch out into other
"local" papers all across your state and
then across the country...

You'll never run out of these papers.

Here is a source of many (not all)

weekly publications:

What Can You Do About Gas Prices?

There's nothing to stop gasoline from
hitting $8 - $9 a gallon in the next
12 to 24 months...

How is that going to affect YOUR lifestyle?

The time to DO something about it is NOW.

Once gas hits those price levels...

It'll be too late.

You'll be in such a mess
you can't even imagine.

Because not only will the gas prices
be out of control...

But everything else will too.

Food, taxes, basic necessities…

Protect your family and your assets.

Start a home business TODAY.

Tomorrow may be too late.

I've been doing this for a living since 1999.

SeaAloe is the BEST home business opportunity
available to the general public on the market.

This is not hype or a sales pitch.

This is a fact.

SeaAloe Seed Time and Harvest

When Should I Start My SeaAloe Business?

You ever heard the saying:

"Make hay while the sun's shining."?

This is one of those Universal principles
that wise people follow, and broke people

You ever notice that broke people
are always "smarter" than us saps
that work for a living?

Anyway, that's another story.

Most people wait until they
lose their jobs...

Or retire, only to "discover" that
their pension is only gonna last
about 6 months, if that long...

And their "Social Security"

check will just about cover
their gasoline purchases...

(If, they don't take any vacations.)

So these poor folks end up as
greeters at a Wal-Mart store.

My daughter works at a Wal-Mart store.

(She's not a greeter, praise the Lord.)

Did you know that there are THOUSANDS
of applicants for each one of those
greeter jobs...

This is sad, people.

And it could be YOU one day.

So, when is the BEST TIME to
start a SeaAloe business?

The best time is to start it TODAY,
while you still have your job and
are paying your bills.

Then, you can build your second income
leisurely, at your own pace, with NO
pressure on you.

Then, when you need the income,
it's already there.

Build your business when the sun's shining.

It's like God's principle of seed time and harvest.

You ain't gonna have a harvest
until you plant your seeds.

And, the harvest ain't gonna be the
same day you plant your seeds.

Get real folks, this is your life
we're talking about here.

And, your family's.

SeaAloe Marketing 101 - Business Basics

Want to make your SeaAloe business
(or any business for that matter)
grow and prosper?

Then you really need to think about this.

Ben Franklin may have discovered electricity...

But, it was the guy that invented the
electric meter that made all the money.

What's this got to do with your business?

Write this on a stone tablet:

It doesn't matter how awesome your product is.

Doesn't matter if it will grow hair
on the bald and raise the dead...

It's the guy that knows how to market
that's gonna make all the money.

And, unless you're making 10K a month
in your sleep...

You don't know how to market.

(Yet, anyway. You can learn.)


1. Learn how to market.


2. Get in a JV or co-op with someone
that does know how to market.

You can have a business that
pays you for life, if...

IF, you treat it like a business.

Just go do it.

What My SeaAloe Business Means to Me

I earn my living with my SeaAloe business.

And it's a good living, praise the Lord.

And, I'm blessed that it only takes me about
two or three hours a WEEK to tend to it.

And, it’s a portable business.

All I need is my lap top and cell phone
and my “office” is set up if I need it.

My wife recently got promoted at her job.

She's now the "human resources" person.

When I say "the", I mean "the only".

It's a big billion-dollar company
with offices all over the world.

So now she has to travel some.

My wife is a small-town girl who has
never really traveled other than the
vacations we take together as a family.

(Again, thanks to SeaAloe!)

So anyway, traveling to all these far-away

big cities is sort of intimidating to her.

So, here's what my SeaAloe business means to me:

I'm able to go with her when she has to go out of town.

And I have the TIME and the MONEY
and the FREEDOM to do it.

It costs a good bit - I have to pay my own way,
airline tickets, meals, etc...

And, of course we do a lot more things while
out of town together than she would probably
do if she was by herself.

It means a LOT to her that I'm able to go with her.

And, it means a lot to me that I'm able to.

You should build your SeaAloe business.

It may mean a lot to someone you love.

SeaAloe Business Solutions

The Problem With Network Marketing

Problem #1:
Most people can't sell.

Problem #2:
Most people try to sell a
selling business to people
that can't sell.

Problem #3:
Even if you happen to sell
a selling business to
someone who can't sell...

Where does that leave you?

It leaves you with Problem #4.

Problem #4:
Someone in your downline with Problem #1

This is the vicious cycle of Network Marketing.

The blind leading the blind.

Well, I have some good news for you today:

Sometimes even a blind hog finds an acorn.

Enter SeaAloe...

Solution #1:
A business with a product
that people really want.

Solution #2:
A business where it is possible to earn a
substantial income without ever sponsoring
a single distributor if you don't want to.

(All I have is customers in my business.)

Solution #3:
A business plan that teaches you how

to get in front of people that want your
product and will buy it.

Solution #4:
A SeaAloe business.

You can get started doing this today.

Don't Define Yourself by What You're NOT

If you're not a telemarketer,
don't try to be one.

If you're not a public speaker,
don't try to be one.

If you don't have a strong "circle of influence,"
don't think you're gonna get one by striking
up conversations with strangers in the mall.

If you're not a skilled marketer,
don't delude yourself into thinking
you're gonna get rich in business
without something changing.

Now, if you are skilled at any of the above,
go do it, because these methods do work.

But, if you're not...

And you try them anyway,
don't punish yourself if
they don't work out.

If you want to make money in ANY business,
you need to LEARN HOW.

And, teaching housewives how to
send spam is NOT a business.

The best way to make money in your
network marketing business is to
find someone who is already making
the kind of money you want to make...

And, is doing it in a way
that you could do it too.

And, is willing to teach you.

My point is this...

You get into a network marketing business
and you do not have success...

You think you "failed"...

But, nobody told you that you were really
going to be an unpaid and untrained

Or, that you had to go to the mall
and hit on strangers...

Or that you had to (already be) be a

skilled 21st century Internet Marketer.

So, don't think YOU failed...

"Don't define yourself by what you're NOT."

You're NOT a telemarketer.

You're NOT gonna spend your nights and
weekends accosting strangers at the mall.

You're not (already) a skilled marketer.

But, you can connect with a skilled marketer.

Get someone that's doing what
you want to do to teach you
how to do it.

Then, you can have the success
that you want and deserve.

That is the solution.

The Next Billion Dollar Company

Why are just about all new MLM companies touted
as the "next billion dollar company"?

Does it really matter if the company
does a billion dollars or not?

Isn't the important question:

"How much are YOU gonna make?"

You can stay broke in a billion dollar
company just as easy as in a million
dollar company...

And, you can make great money in a
million dollar company just as easy as

you can in a billion dollar company...

Maybe easier.

So, when the guy calls you pitching
his "next billion dollar" company...

Ask him how much he's making.

Ask him what he's doing to get a piece
of that "billion dollar" company other
than calling up strangers with that
useless sales projection.

Living Foods Health Food Store
in Baton Rouge, LA was my first

Living Foods is a landmark in Baton Rouge.

Family owned and operated...

Personal service...

They know your name.

Living Foods has a LOT of loyal

Living Foods has customers that
I would never meet myself in two

lifetimes or more...

Customers that I would
never find myself.

People that want and need SeaAloe
but otherwise would not know where
to find it.

So Living Foods and I entered
into a WIN-WIN "partnership".

They have access to a great product.

And I have local customers that
I've never met and most likely
never will meet.

This is networking.

SeaAloe Distributor Finding People Interested In Worm Farms

Worm Farm Entrepreneurs

I'm getting hits every day on my blog from

people searching for worm farms.

This must be big business.

Are people searching for your business?

Why not?

Can they find you if they do search?

Why not?

Do you know how to get found?

Why not?

These are important questions if you
are serious about making money in

a business.

I suggest you start asking these questions,
and do something about the answers.

People find me if they search for

SeaAloe vs Worm Ranching

Does worm ranching provide passive
or residual income?

I don't know.

My SeaAloe business provides both
passive and residual income.

Passive income because I set it up
about a year ago and I still get
income from it without working in

it every day.

Residual income because I have
customers reordering and I get
paid every time they order.

Anyway, this is an update on
my worm farming post...

I have this thing on my blog,
I forgot what you call it...

Anyway, it provides analytics about
the visitors to my blog.

One of the things it tells me, is

what a person was searching
for when they landed on my blog.

Folks, I am here to report to you
that people ARE searching for

worm farming and worm ranching

And, they are ending up on my site.

I do hope that one of those folks
will call me so that I can get an
update on the state of the

worm ranching industry.

A SeaAloe Push Button Business

Does your business let you get
paid at the push of a button?

If not, you're missing out.

People "push a button" and
from me every day.

They push a button, and I
get an email that says,

"Anna Montana placed a $100 order."

"Buckwheat Zideco placed a $300 order."

Then, every Wednesday, I get a
commission check in the mail.

No calling strangers and trying to sell
them something they don't want.

I don't know what kind of business
you're looking for...

But this is my kind of business.

It took a little time and money
to set it up about a year ago...

And now it pays me every week.

Kind of like building an apartment complex.

You plan it, then you build it...

Then you sit back and collect rent.

Do a little maintenance every once in a while...

If SeaAloe goes to direct deposit,
I won't even have to drive to the
bank to deposit my checks.

A very wise business man once said,

"Define your lifestyle and create a system
to earn enough money to support it."

I'm glad I listened...

SeaAloe in Margaritaville

Want the Jimmy Buffet lifestyle?

Internet Marketing may be the answer.

It was for me.

Starting a business of your own today has
never been easier, cheaper or faster.

Setting up your own Internet-based SeaAloe
is cheaper than setting up a snow
ball stand or buying the equipment to get
into the lawn mowing business.

And, your SeaAloe business has the
potential to generate life-changing

What are some of the advantages of
setting up a
SeaAloe business?

- Minimal start-up capital required

- Run it from anywhere

(I'm usually in a at the beach
or at a camp on the river.)

- No major technical skills or education required

(Heck, I'm as technology-challenged as
a person can be in this day and age.)

- Good credit not required

- You can be in business and generating
income in under an hour

- You can make money 24 hours a day,
365 days a year, even when you're
on vacation or sleeping

- You can run your entire business online

(My friends and neighbors think I'm
a drug smuggler or something...
I don't seem to work, am always traveling
and have plenty of money, lol.)

It doesn't get any better than this.

Your Product Costs Too Much

"Your product costs too much."

You ever notice who it is that
says that to you most often?

Who is it that thinks your
product costs too much?

I've been in the network marketing
industry for over 20 years...

I've built my businesses both ways -

Leading with the business, and

Leading with the product...

I have about 2,000 customers right now.

You know who it is that tells me
my product "costs too much"?

It's the MLMers.

Not the consumers.

The MLMers.

When you build your business focusing
on bringing in MLMers, your business
is built on shifting sand.

The MLMer doesn't want your product.

The MLMer wants to be a millionaire
without buying anything...

(Or doing anything for that matter.)

You can have the MLMers.

Give me a real customer any day.

A customer who wants my product
because it is a good product.

You can make money with MLMers.

Just always remember, the MLMers are
just passing through your business.

But your customers stay.

Want real residual income?

Customers create real residual income.

MLMers create temporary income, or at best,
"ongoing" income, but not residual income.

Do You Want To Make $10,000 in the Next 30 Days?

Do you get people calling you asking you that?

You ever ask them if they made
$10,000 in the last 30 days?

I had a guy call me just last night...

Used the Tracy Biller script right down
to the chuckle in the right place.

You know the script...

"Don't worry [chuckle] I'm not going
to bend your ear or try to sell you

[Right, so why did you call?]

"If I could show you a way to make $10,000
in the next 30 days, could you make time
for a 45 minute conference call tomorrow"

I replied, "If you could show me you made
50 cents in the last 30 days I'll be on the call."

The guy goes, "Huh?"

I said again, "If you made 50 cents in

the last 30 days, I'll be on your call."

He says, "Well, the man doing the call
made a lot more than that."

I says,

"Then how are YOU gonna show me
how to make $10,000 in 30 days if
YOU can't make 50 cents in 30 days?"

People, do you GET IT?

And you actually wonder why

MLM has a bad name?

Make YOUR business work before you

make a fool of yourself like this guy did.

And so many more otherwise good people
do every night making these foolish calls.

You don't have to be making $10,000 a month...

You just have to have a product that
a few people will actually buy and
like enough to re-order.

That's all.

If you make 50 cents a month,
you're way ahead of the game.

I'm not kidding.

Once you get your business to break-even,
you have a legitimate business...

And, you can stay in the game, because
you're not going in the hole.

I have a SeaAloe business

that pays me very well.

The first thing I did when I got in business
was focus on getting some customers to

buy my order every month.

Then, I could focus on making $10,000+
a month because I wasn't going in the
hole every month and having a bunch of
product stacking up that my wife was
fussing about.

You can't make $10,000 a month until
you learn how to make $1 a month...

Just like you can't have an oak tree
until you first get an acorn...

And most people don't get married until
after they've had a first date.

This is not new information, folks.

It's even in the Bible...

Seed time and harvest.

Sowing and reaping.

If you just get this simple "how the
Universe works" principle, you can
make money...

(If you have a legitimate product.)

SeaAloe is an all natural whole food liquid
vitamins and minerals dietary supplement.

People actually buy it and re-order it.

You can make money with a product
that people re-order every month.

How much money do you think a guy makes
that calls up strangers trying to sell them a

"$10,000 in 30 days" pyramid scheme?

SeaAloe - you can sell this stuff.

Does Your Product Sell Itself?

Products don't sell themselves.

Advertising sells products.

Marketing sells products.

People sell products.

If you got into an MLM business because
they told you the product "sells itself"...

I already know how much money you're making.


If you want to make money with a home based
marketing and distribution business, be sure
you get involved with a company like SeaAloe
and honest people that talk about marketing,
and not about products that "sell themselves."

If a product sold itself...

WHY would they need you?

SeaAloe is a product that
people WANT and BUY.

But, it still takes MARKETING
to get them to do it.

The truth on MLM is this:

You can get people to buy your
product "automatically"...

But, only after you set up
a marketing funnel for the

customers to flow through.
