I knew when I got married 13 years ago (13 years ago next month actually) that I wanted to be a dad. Not just a dad, a Great Dad. So, what does it mean to be a Great Dad?
The best memory I have of my Dad when I was young was the one time that he chaperoned a field trip that my class went on one year in school. I don’t remember what year it was but I know it was either elementary or middle school. On that field trip my class visited the local newspaper and saw how newspapers were printed. We visited the local PBS television station and saw all of that worked. Finally, we visited one of the local radio stations. Read more... (1825 words, 4 images, estimated 7:18 mins reading time)
I’ve read a lot of blog posts and comments on posts recently where people put down network marketing as a good home-based business or online business opportunity. They have modern network marketing all wrong.
They talk about desperate marketers who tell everyone about their business, whether their target is looking for a business or not. Most recently I read a comment that said it was not as good as other home-based businesses because of all the meetings that you have to attend. Read more...

Have you ever wanted to go on vacation, chaperone your kid’s field trip at school, or take advantage of another opportunity but couldn’t because you had to go to work? Or maybe you own a business where you have to be there everyday to mind the store, ship product, or whatever it is that you do.
I remember when that was me. Before I got married I would put in a lot of hours at work, collect my overtime pay, and save up my money. I was never a very outgoing person, so that was fine for me back then. When I got married and had kids though, that changed. I wanted to be able to do things with my family. Read more...

Do you want to be able to make money online? Do you read about it all the time, maybe try some of the different ways, but nothing seems to work?
I read a log of blogs about building an online home-based business. Who doesn’t want to be able to work from home in a business of their own where they are their own boss and call all the shots?
Most of the bloggers that I read either promote creating your own digital product or affiliate marketing. I even read a post today about plr marketing. What are they? Read more... (1484 words, 1 image, estimated 5:56 mins reading time)

Daylight Saving Time started here in the United States yesterday. It also started today in a few other countries on our side of the Atlantic Ocean, like Canada, and starts in many of the European countries in a couple weeks.
Do you find the time change to be highly disruptive to your life? Changing all of the clocks in the easy part. Dealing with your lack of sleep, and that of everyone else around you is the biggest challenge. It takes at least a few days to adjust to the hour change. Read more...

As anyone who has followed me for very long already knows, I earn most of my income through network marketing, and I do it all online. I like working online because it gives me the freedom to build my business around my life instead of building my life around my business. There are some other money-making benefits to being online as well. Read more... (1264 words, 1 image, estimated 5:03 mins reading time)

This applies to any network marketing business. I happen to be in Nikken, so that’s the one I talk about. Feel free to substitute your company or business anywhere that I mention mine.
I’ve been saying it forever, the best way to make money in Nikken is to sell the product at retail to customers. Now that Nikken is telling the distributors the same thing, and has made a few changes to the compensation plan to further emphasize it, people want to know how to retail the products to customers. One of my distributor friends has done a lot of conference calls in the past few months and he says people are always asking him how to retail products. Read more...

There has been a lot of talk in Nikken in the past year, and especially in the past few months, about the shift in focus from recruiting new distributors to selling the products to retail customers. Is it really that big of a deal? I’ll let you decide.
I talked about the changes in a post that I published two weeks ago and, thanks to the distributor friend I mention in that post, Gary, I have been getting some notice from our common upline and from some people at Nikken corporate as well. You can read that post about the change in focus here. I’m still waiting to see what comes from all of that attention and it should be an interesting story. Read more...

Big changes at the top of an organization always cause ripples down through the ranks. Nikken made big changes that began to take effect in November with lower prices and a shift in focus toward sales to retail customers.
What Has Changed
Some of the top-ranked big name Royal Diamonds, including two in my own upline, decided to leave, which causes more ripples down through the ranks. It’s really not a huge surprise. They are career network marketers who have always focused on building a huge team. If you read my previous post you know that Nikken took some of the money incentive out of team building by lowering the commission value on most of the products to encourage distributors to put more focus on building a retail customer base.
