I believe in order to do that we as individuals should be making choices, choices to only earn our income in ways which allow us more freedom. In keeping with that mandate, my team and I developed an amazing refund consulting program, with business tools & vehicles that allows you to earn an income on your own terms. We have set criteria to anything we would ever consider for our customers in regards to any business we would ever recommend; this is some of our basic criteria generalized.
An income vehicle needs to be 100% virtual & 100% portable – in other words if you want to be like me & enjoy sailing for months at a time your business comes with you, if you love going to the laid back south pacific & hanging out at a beach with your family for 12 weeks at a time, guess what your business comes with you. There are many scenarios, young mums wanting a balance between earning and time with the little ones, carers who have a commitment to a disabled person or an elderly parent, retirees wanting to remain stimulated and earning extra income from their easy chair or while finally seeing the world- As a society we have the technology to allow us to be anywhere and still do business and be of service. I do it every day and have done it for 19 years now, and it’s easier today than it was in 1999 when I started!
So what those criteria that make a great business model?
Well, it needs to be a very low-risk ALL-ROUNDER, meaning it must have a tiny start-up cost under $10,000 say.
It needs to have low overheads so any time you need to take time out it isn’t costing you very much to actually remain in business (this is a huge risk minimizer!).
It needs to have extremely low business risk exposure.
It needs to be a fun business- while “fun” means different things to different people – it needs to be enjoyable, intriguing & something you can really enjoy, because we figure if it ain’t fun you cant do it long term & smart business (as well as wealth creation) is all about longevity! So we promise never to offer you anything boring.
Your business – your standards, you become the boss… meaning we don’t believe in fad business, that are not really businesses… MLM and the like where you are reliant on “other people” and their “systems” well that’s not actually a business, there are many fads & schemes nowadays masquerading as genuine businesses – we are only really interested in REAL businesses because frankly, the rest is little more than a waste of time- we would rather set up a solid business for the long haul and then enjoy it!
It needs to be LUCRATIVE and in a growing niche market. This is key to you working “a little” and earning “a lot” for it! rather than go in tiny business markets with cut-throat competition and on costs that slaughter you, we go into high demand areas where there is a great demand and where the competition is still low.
It needs to be ethical & socially responsible. Why? Because again longevity relies on you being able to live with yourself log terms doing business, and the best way to stay in business is to do something that resonates with you & your personal values & ethics, so you feel like you are doing something of REAL service, and REAL value to others…. long term it needs to be about more than just the money. So whilst you will make your choice according to your own values & your own code of ethics- we only ever advocate a business if it sits well with us.
Some people give theoretical advice, and others actually “walk the talk”, I walk the talk, as a company we are 100% virtual, with an amazing team that is connected by wonderful technologies- my staff are based across the country and a few are based internationally, yet we connect far more than your “neon” lit city office worker”, we have flexibility, understanding & we keep it real. Because I have been in that situation where you feel there is no solution other than keep going with an office job and social obligations.
