The change to improve.

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Imagine getting to your job today and there, finding the doors closed with a notice that you’re fired and the store is closed.

So today several of 63 Sam’s Club stores in the United States.  It is a fact: the trend is to disappear physical stores and migrate to the current, electronic commerce. I know that the way to do it for Sam’s Club today was cruel, but this change is for the better.

Today, for how are the economic challenges, even the big businessmen are understanding that it is a “white elephant” to maintain a physical store with all the expenses involved: the physical store itself with its maintenance, light, water, gas , the most expensive: the payroll of so many employees, the rent of the premises, and the exorbitant amount of money that goes into advertising such as television, radio, film and press. On the other hand, today it is more than proven that you can sell the same, or more, without spending any of it at all, that is electronic commerce where, without all of the above, with a good website and with Word-of-mouth advertising through social media is the most effective way to be productive.

That is why I have insisted so much to my readers that they open their minds to know how to benefit from this global change to improve. I buy everything I really need in my day to day, those essential purchases, for years in an online store and also, incredibly, I generate additional income for the simple fact of referring customers, is an extraordinary concept of true source of well-being. Everyone should know this blessing!

The challenge: real interest in improving to take the time to listen to the information. Believe me it is a concept that the simple fact of knowing it is transformative! If you want to work improving your finances at the best time, this beginning of 2018 -before things get more difficult during the year-, let’s get in touch if you do in the next league and you will be one of the few people I can help in this month, I can only assist 20 people:

What is Residual Income?

Before explaining what residual income is, I will talk about linear income.

What is linear income?

The linear income is that cash flow that you receive by the exchange of your time (hours). As I said in the last article, if you worked an hour for $ 10, it was all you earned for that effort since that hour will not happen again.

In other words you do not earn money for results but for a job in the exchange of your time. Exchange 8 to 12 hours a day for 35 to 40 years and then realize that your pension is far below what you really earned before retirement.

That is heard and it must be very sad! Many think that having a linear income (having a job) is a sure thing, but it is not like that, much less when the economy is in a state of resection.

Companies are closing or reducing employees. It does not happen that way when you have a residual income.

Let’s see what residual income is.

It is a cash flow that comes from an effort that produces results.
It is what is known as effort and shared income.
The residual income occurs when you are consuming a product and you refer to other people who will consume the product month after month and who will also refer to others who will do the same and so on, and you will be paid commissions.

In other words, it is doing the job well done only once, and for that job well done you will continue earning money as if you had worked thousands of hours.

With only 10 to 20 hours a week dedicated as full-time or 5 to 10 part-time you can pay your debts and have financial freedom.

IT IS SOMETHING SURPRISING TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY SO WHERE OTHERS DO NOT DECIDE FOR YOU BUT YOU ARE THE OWNER OF YOUR ECONOMIC DESTINY AND HAVE A TRUE SOURCE OF SECURE INCOME.

The opportunity of a life time‏

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

In today’s society, most of us spend a great deal of our lives trying to provide for our families and developing the resources necessary to have a great life. For most, getting ahead financially is a real challenge. Statistics suggest that those who make the most financial progress are often entrepreneurs who start their own businesses. But starting a business often takes an investment of hundreds of thousands of dollars. And even then, the road to success is fraught with obstacles and serious financial risk.

Over the last three decades, Melaleuca has been building a financial opportunity for the average person to start a business with virtually no risk and unlimited upside potential. We see ourselves as the champion of the “little guy.” We believe that those who were not born into wealth and who have not climbed the corporate ladder should still have the same opportunity to get ahead in life. Although we’ve all heard the old mantra “It takes money to make money,” Melaleuca has developed a proven system where people with virtually no financial investment can make substantial improvements in their financial situation simply by referring customers to Melaleuca. This system has proven to be quite successful. Melaleuca has already paid out over $3.6 billion to households who were previously “just getting by” with their 9-to-5 jobs.

THE WELLNESS INDUSTRY

Our industry is the $620 billion wellness industry. The key to Melaleuca’s historic growth and life-changing Financial Reward Program is Melaleuca’s tremendous line of superior wellness products. We succeed because our wellness products are the absolute best in the marketplace.

RESIDUAL INCOME

All compensation is based on the sale of products to end consumers. However, you will never have to “sell” a single product to anyone since all products are sold directly by Melaleuca to your customers. Your role is simply to refer customers to shop at Melaleuca.

You will be paid commissions whenever those customers purchase products. It’s all about having delighted customers who, because of their personal experience of increased energy and healthier lives, continue to purchase Melaleuca products month after month.

Delighted customers create an enormous demand for Melaleuca products. Since most of Melaleuca’s customers are Preferred Customers who purchase every month, that can mean substantial monthly income for you for the rest of your life! Your income will depend on how many loyal customers you have and how much they purchase each month. As with any business, your success will take hard work, diligence, perseverance, and leadership. It’s a new day! Welcome to Melaleuca!

Is a Filthy Home Safer for Your Children?

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

A clean home. Who needs it?

After a new, independent study concluded that cleaning your home as little as once a week with national brand cleaners was as dangerous for your lungs as smoking a pack a day for twenty years, some parents are seriously wondering if cleaning the house is worth it at all. And who would blame them?

If adult lungs suffer when we breathe in the dangerous chemicals of national brand cleaning products, what about the developing lungs of children?

Yes, it’s just what you suspected: toxic chemicals are extremely dangerous for your children.

Here is what you need to know about hazardous chemicals and your child’s lungs:

• While toxins threaten everyone’s health, infants and children are especially sensitive to toxins and are very susceptible to air pollution

• Children are more vulnerable to chemicals (pound-by-pound because of their smaller body weight)

• Children’s bodies are less able to detoxify because their organs are not fully developed

If the hazardous chemicals in national brand cleaners are affecting adult respiratory health, imagine what they are doing to children who live in the same home, eat in the same kitchen, bathe in the same bathrooms, walk on the same floors, and breathe the same air! Their little lungs—so pure and clean—should be breathing air that is equally as pure and clean.

Giving up on cleaning all together (as tempting as that may sound some days) is not the answer. Living in filth comes with its own frightening threats to children’s health.

The good news is, it’s possible to provide your little ones with the home environment they deserve—freshly scrubbed, tidy and clean (even disinfected)—without harsh, toxic, organ-damaging chemicals.

Melaleuca scientists formulated EcoSense products to get your house sparkling clean without ammonia, chlorine bleach, quaternary disinfectants, or other dangerous chemicals. In fact, our cleaning products are so safe that no child safety caps are required.

You can have a clean home that is also toxin-free! Only EcoSense is the safer, more effective alternative.  www.gaxiolas.com/

Let’s Stop Poisoning Our Children,

Why should three-year-old Jason Whitley have died a lingering and horrible death after swallowing three ounces of hair conditioner? Two weeks after drinking the liquid, which contains ammonia, the little boy died.

And why should seven-month-old Adrian Gonzales have died? He crawled through a puddle of spilled laundry bleach, which gave him third-degree burns on 50% of his tiny body and burned his lungs from the fumes as well. It took him four agonizing days to die.

And why should little Peter Schwab have suffered so much? When he was a year old, he crawled over to the dishwasher to watch his mother unloading it. Suddenly, he put a finger into the detergent dispensing cup and ate a fingerful of wet but undissolved Electrosol. In minutes his face was red and blistered, and the inside of his mouth and his tongue were burned white. Because of a series of fortunate circumstances, Peter was in a hospital within minutes but he recovered in a few days. Not so for the little girl across the hall in the hospital who (according to Peter’s mother) ate some dishwasher detergent and required seven operations to reopen her scarred esophagus. Or the eighteen-month-old boy who had to eat and breathe through tubes for five months and at last count has had thirty operations. Dishwasher detergent is what destroyed his throat, too

“More children under four die of accidental poisoning at home than are accidentally killed with a gun at home.”
-National Safety Council

Why must these children have to suffer? If only they had never been exposed to such hazardous chemicals. Every year, million household poisoning are reported (50,000 overexposure cases per year are attributed to bleach alone). Sadly, many of the hazardous chemicals are fatal, and most of the victims are children. These poisoning are the result of accidental ingestion of common household substance found in just about every home.

The real tragedy is, accidents like these can easily be avoided. But most parents aren’t aware that there are effective products on the market that are much safer than nationally advertised brands, and, in most cases, cost less.

This message is meant to be a wake-up call for parents. I think you will be shocked to learn about some of the health hazards your child is exposed to every day because of the cleaning and personal care products in your home. I pray you will read this information carefully. Your child’s health and safety may depend on it.

12 Factors for Success in a Home-Based Business

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Millions of people start daily business from home.

Many promote services other products, others both.

Many join other established companies to “Ground Floor Opportunities”, all look for something in common:

Achieve financial freedom and have time to spend with your family or to do the activities that interest you most.
The reality is that most people do not have success and give up shortly after they have started.

Let’s analyze what are the real causes that can determine between being successful or failing.
There are 3 important elements to analyze:

a – The company.
b- The Products or Services.
c- The human factor. ( US )

Sometimes we have the best company, the best products but nevertheless success is not achieved.

Let’s analyze the 2 First points.

12 Factors for Success in a Business from Home:

1- History of the company.

Most companies fail in the first 5 years.
How many years in the market does the company you are evaluating?

If  do not have more than 10 years of success, do not take the risk.
The false myth of “Ground Floor Opportunity”, do not listen when they tell you that it is the perfect moment because the company is starting and those who start first
They are the ones who will achieve success without much effort. That is a big lie.

2- Financial Stability

Investigate before getting involved. It is something that will pass the test of time.
Is it a private or public company?
The public companies respond in the first instance to the interests of the
investors
Is a company loaded with debts?
Analyze this point, this determines to a great extent the stability of your business.

With what regularity the company makes commission payments. Is trustworthy ? Have you gotten behind in these payments on some occasion? What is the cause ?

3- Experience of the Administration.

How experienced are your executives managing corporations before, how successful have they been?

If it’s a Network Marketing or MLM company, ask yourself:
Do the owners of the business program participate, are they part of the structure of the compensation plan?
Most companies know that they have a very small chance to earn their millions and start something new. A large part of the companies take advantage of their customers or distributors and take desciones for the benefit
staff of those who run it and do not take into account their people who work in the field.

Make sure that the company’s directors come from recognized corporations in the United States.
The directors of the company are based on solid principles and objectives, have real goals that are not exaggerated and invest in pursuit of them. ?

4- The Products are Exclusive of the company and are of massive consumption by 100% of the people?

The products create new habits in the consumers or are products to which they are already accustomed and are needed daily?

Preferably they must be superior and more secure products, patented and protected by trade secrets that prevent others from manufacturing them.

They must be products that people use every day, without having to create new needs.

In other words, people are already spending money on products of this type, so the business concept should revolve around redirecting expenses and not creating new ones.
expenses.

In other words, this is the only way to create a business that generates a constant and growing income based on residual income and not one-time or linear income.

Remember Real Residual Income is the greatest benefit of a network business, but in 99% of companies there is no durable residual.

5- Prices of the Products

Are the prices competitive, reasonable?

Something that the common person can buy or are products for a limited market sector?
Products with prices similar or better than those that the client is used to are needed, only this way the client can see the benefit of being a customer and staying
As a customer for a long time, this guarantees the retention of customers.
Are the products manufactured by the company or subcontracted by other manufacturers?

Only if the company manufactures its own products can there be a quality control and a control over the levels of availability for the clients and not products in
El orden anterior

6- Purchase Repeat Index.

Analyze a very important factor, what is the percentage of customers who buy every month, how many stay true to the brand for years independently
if they receive commissions or not from the company.

In the vast majority of network marketing companies or network marketing people come by the income potential but seeing that they are not winning they decide
withdraw from the program.

Look for a company where people stay for the benefit of the product and not for the money they can earn.

7- Monthly Production Requirement.

What monthly volume should you personally move into products to qualify to receive the highest commissions?
If the monthly purchase requirement per customer is above what he can consume in his house then the vast majority will not be successful because he has to
go out to sell products and not everyone has that gift.

If the company has only one product or a small variety of products, there is a high probability that the house will be filled with the same product and this leads to the
reorder more product or cancellation without doubts.

8- Investment to Begin.

This is one of the most important points. How much do you have to invest to start?

Is it something that anyone can do or just a select group in the market?

If it is a network marketing business, the key to success lies in duplication, that is, something anyone can do, therefore the registration fee can not be
of more than 3% of their income should be something affordable accessible to the vast majority. Something that does not require buying inventory of products.

9- Percentage of Customer Retention.

In most of the companies, if the clients did not place orders, the promoters give up because logically they are not receiving compensation. The question is, do customers really exist?

It is not about bringing customers who cancel the following month, it is about bringing customers who stay for the products, prices and benefits they receive as customers of the brand.
Only then can you create a business that lasts for years regardless of whether there is a recession or not.

10- The Timely Moment.

Is the market saturated so much that we have to go out and look for international expansion?

Is it a good time to promote these products? What will happen in 5 years,
It will be a good time yet?

This is a key factor in the success of any business.

11- Will you lose your Business Leaders?

Many companies use compensation plans where people are penalized by paying less commissions when a leader moves towards a position close to their
sponsor or enroller, rupture or breakaway plans.
Many companies use binary plans that go against the business principles because they stimulate to help those with the shortest leg, in others
words, to those who do not produce.

12- Are there Risks?

Does the company offer an unconditional guarantee policy of 100% money back when the client is not satisfied?
Do they charge a fee for a refund or restocking fee?
How complex is the guarantee process?
This must be simple and the client’s decision must always be respected.
No injured persons should leave because of a bad guarantee policy.

These 12 factors determine 90% success in a business from home.

There is the 80/20 rule, where of every 100 people only 20% can do it, if we find an opportunity that meets these 12 factors then this rule
it breaks and then and only then will the probability  of Success be equal for all.

Scientific Study on Household Cleaning Products and Women’s Lung Health Explained

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

women cleaning damage to their lungs

A new, independent study based on 20 years of research reveals a sobering fact: Cleaning your home with national brand cleaners significantly damages lung tissue. Almost all the cleaning products that you buy at the grocery store are made with a multitude of harmful chemicals. According to the study, some of the likely culprits are ammonia, chlorine bleach, and quaternary disinfectant compounds. The study also showed that cleaning with products that contain dangerous chemicals as little as once per week was as damaging over time to respiratory health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years! 1

About the Study

Starting in the 1990s, the Community Respiratory Health Survey began tracking a large population of 6,235 women and men with a beginning average age of 34 at 22 health centers in multiple countries. Over the next 20 years, participants were quizzed about their use of both spray and liquid home cleaning products and had their lung capacity tested regularly. Lung capacity was measured by breathing into a spirometer, an instrument that measures how much air you can exhale. Those with compromised lung function are not able to exhale as much volume as someone who is healthy.

Fifty-three percent of the participants were women and 44% were lifelong non-smokers. Analysis was adjusted for smokers and those with doctor-diagnosed asthma. Participant data was extensive, ensuring that each subject was well characterized, significantly reducing the likelihood of misrepresentation.

Once twenty years of data had been collected, the results were compiled and analyzed by a top team of 28 international researchers from nine countries, led by scientists at The University of Bergen in Norway. The study, titled Cleaning at Home and at Work in Relation to Lung Function Decline and Airway Obstruction, was recently published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

The results confirm what Melaleuca has known for years: toxic chemical ingredients in national brand home cleaning products take a toll on the health of those who clean with them. The extent of the devastation is only now beginning to be uncovered.

Finding 1: Using national brand cleaners as little as once per week is as damaging to lung health as smoking 20 cigarettes per day.

By now, just about everyone knows the dangers of smoking cigarettes. Among their many hazards include depleted lung capacity—the result of damage to the tender internal tissues of the respiratory system. Lung capacity is important because it is a marker of overall health and fitness. The body depends on the lungs’ life-giving ability to oxygenate blood and expel carbon dioxide—the waste product of metabolism.

Decreased lung capacity can lead to obvious declines in fitness, but since the body is so dependent on oxygen exchange, whole systems of the body can be compromised when the lungs become even partially debilitated.

Shockingly, the study concluded that women who used home cleaning products at least once per week saw the same reduction in lung capacity as those who smoked a pack a day over the same period. According to the authors, “Women cleaning at home or working as occupational cleaners had accelerated decline in lung function, suggesting that exposures related to cleaning activities may constitute a risk to long-term respiratory health.”

Finding 2: Women are affected far more than men.

Though there was a clear correlation between women who cleaned and respiratory illness, there was less correlation for men. While the scientists pointed out that the total number of men regularly using household cleaning products was significantly lower than women, the study summary also points out previous research that elaborates the increased sensitivity in the female respiratory system.

This finding is particularly concerning when considering that the most sensitive members of the population are also those engaging with these products with the most frequency.

Finding 3: Cleaning at home is just as, if not more harmful, than being an occupational cleaner.

The study survey categorized participants as “not cleaning,” “cleaning at home,” and “occupational cleaning.” While the “not cleaning” subset of women saw only expected, age-related change in lung capacity, the “cleaning at home” group saw the same decreases in lung health as “occupational cleaning.” How could this be the case when cleaning professionals are using cleaning products on a daily, ongoing basis, versus someone performing chores less frequently in their own home?

First, consider that occupational cleaners are most often required to use protective gloves, clothing, and even masks while performing their duties. Those at home casually disregard warning labels and use cleaning products without adequate protection. Additionally, professional cleaners move from room to room, working in larger spaces with better ventilation than someone at home. In fact, using cleaning products within the relaxed, comfortable confines of home may actually lend to a general complacency that ultimately leads to impaired health.

Finding 4: Liquid cleaners are just as dangerous as sprays.

Study researchers originally suspected that products delivered through a spray or mist would prove more dangerous than those applied as a liquid, gel, or wipe. Surprisingly, the study found no significant difference between cleaner delivery types. The implication is that the chemicals in liquid cleaners become just as available for inhalation through evaporation as those used in sprays.

liquid cleaner spray products lung danger

Finding 5: Dangerous chemical ingredients including ammonia, chlorine bleach, and quaternary disinfecting compounds appear to be primary culprits.

In their conclusions, the researchers stated, “one could hypothesize that long-term exposure to airway irritants such as ammonia and bleach used when cleaning at home could cause fibrotic or other interstitial changes in the lung tissue, thereby leading to accelerated decline of FVC (forced vital capacity).”

Finding 6: Women who regularly use cleaning products have increased rates of asthma.

Researchers found increased rates of asthma within the groups who used national brand cleaning products regularly. This echoes multiple recent studies that have clearly linked the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agents with the onset of asthma.

Finding 7: Damage is cumulative over time.

When toxic chemicals–like those found in most all national brand cleaning products–are regularly inhaled into the sensitive tissues within the lungs, it makes sense that respiratory problems would result. “Exposure to cleaning chemicals,” the researchers wrote, “could result in accelerated lung function decline and chronic airway obstruction; low-grade inflammation over many years could possibly lead to persistent damage to the airways.”

Simply stated, regular exposure to the toxins within the home never allow the respiratory system an opportunity to heal, creating a condition where internal damage accumulates. Dr. Cecile Svanes, a professor at the University of Bergen and senior author of the study said, “We feared that such chemicals, by steadily causing a little damage to the airways day after day, year after year, might accelerate the rate of lung function decline that occurs with age.”

What the Study Means for You

For most women who try to keep a clean, safe home, the results of the study are an imperative call to action.

If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to rid your home of the dangerous national cleaning products that contain so many harmful chemicals! What kinds of cleaners are to blame? Most all home cleaning products including disinfectants, kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners, toilet cleaners, shower and tub cleaners, scrubs, stain removers, floor cleaners, degreasers, window and glass cleaners, and surface cleaners.

Though the research results have gained some immediate public interest online and in the general news media, it is up to you to not only take care of your own home, but to warn friends, family, and neighbors of the very real consequences of using these conventional home cleaning products.

Only Melaleuca Offers a Solution

For more than three decades, Melaleuca scientists have formulated cleaning products that perform household chores with unparalleled results—without the cheap, widely available, dangerous chemicals national brands are known to contain. Our EcoSense® line has taken a firm stance on ingredients like ammonia, quaternary disinfectants, chlorine bleach, and other dangerous chemicals. We don’t use them! We never have and never will!

Instead, we use safer, biodegradable solutions that are found in nature, like plant-derived ingredients. We use thyme oil, surfactants from coconut and palm oil, natural enzymes, the same citric acid found in lemons, and 100% pure Melaleuca oil. This is why EcoSense cleaning products are so safe that no childproof caps are required. And it’s why you can clean your home with confidence—instead of holding your breath.

What’s more, EcoSense products are proven to perform. They clean as well or better than the competitive products that use dangerous ingredients. They provide a clean that is far greater than water alone could ever provide. And their advanced formulas clean better than other supposed “green” products by measurable margins. There is a reason Melaleuca has been the leader in safer-for-your-home cleaners for more than a generation.

Lung Study Receives Global Media Attention

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

 A new, independent study based on 20 years of research reveals a sobering fact: cleaning your home with national brand cleaners significantly damages lung tissue. Nearly all of the national brand cleaning products you buy at the grocery store are made with a multitude of harmful chemicals. According to the study, some of the likely culprits are ammonia, chlorine bleach, and quaternary disinfectant compounds—among many others. The study also showed that cleaning with products that contain dangerous chemicals as little as once per week was as damaging over time to respiratory health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years!

When the study, which was conducted by 28 top researchers from nine countries was peer-reviewed and published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, it drew international media attention.

Here is just a sampling of the many stories that summarized the study’s findings:
