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 probity 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

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.

STUDY: USE OF COMPETITORS’ CLEANING PRODUCTS AS HARMFUL AS SMOKING 20 CIGARETTES A DAY

MAJOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FURTHER CONFIRMS THAT MELALEUCA’S ECOSENSE PRODUCTS ARE THE SAFER CHOICE

Research conducted by scientists around the world now confirms what Melaleuca has known for more than 30 years: Toxic chemical ingredients in 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.

According to a groundbreaking new study, regular use of common household cleaners can have the same devastating effects on respiratory health as smoking a pack of cigarettes every day. The research, conducted by more than two dozen scientists in 10 European countries, was just published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine—a highly respected, peer-reviewed medical journal of the American Thoracic Society.

“To the best of our knowledge, this analysis is the first to address lung function decline in relation to cleaning exposure in occupational life or at home,” the study states. “Our findings advocate a need for further focus on preventing harmful exposure to the airways from exposure in cleaning activities.”

Cecile Svanes, M.D., Ph.D., the study’s senior author, further explained the need for studying the effects of cleaning products on health over an extended period of time: “While the short-term effects of cleaning chemicals on asthma are becoming increasingly well documented, we lack knowledge of the long-term impact. 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.”

In the 1990s, scientists began monitoring the health of more than 6,000 people who used cleaning sprays and other products that contain harmful chemical agents. After tracking the subjects’ health for 20 years, the researchers discovered that women who regularly used these products at home or who worked as cleaners had the same damage to their lungs as if they had smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years.

Though there was a clear correlation between women who cleaned at home or for work and respiratory illness, there was no such correlation for men. Scientists did, however, point out that the total number of men regularly using household cleaning products was significantly lower than women.

The results are not altogether unexpected, as previous research has elaborated on the increased sensitivity in the female respiratory system. This makes the latest findings all the more concerning, considering that the most sensitive members of the population (women) are also those engaging with these hazardous products with the most frequency.

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, implying that chemicals in liquid cleaners become just as available for inhalation through evaporation as those used in sprays.

CAUTION: AMMONIA AND CHLORINE BLEACH ARE THE CULPRITS

“Most cleaning agents have an irritative effect on the mucous membranes of the airways,” the study says. Researchers also pointed out that “long-term exposure to airway irritants such as ammonia and bleach used when cleaning at home” could cause lung damage.

Not surprisingly, the scientists strongly advised avoiding any products that contain these harmful chemical agents and recommended using a safer alternative instead.

MELALEUCA ECOSENSE CLEANERS: A DIFFERENT APPROACH

For over 30 years, Melaleuca: The Wellness Company has been the industry leader in safer-for-your-home products. Melaleuca scientists utilize the best of science and nature to formulate highly effective cleaning products that won’t jeopardize the health of families or the environment.

None of Melaleuca’s EcoSense cleaners contain ammonia, chlorine bleach or other harmful ingredients. Instead, they rely on safer, more environmentally responsible formulas to provide the same or better effectiveness as leading brands that contain chemicals now documented as a danger to physical health.

Because Melaleuca’s cleaning formulas are so safe, not one of them requires a childproof safety cap. This includes Melaleuca’s disinfectants, bathroom cleaners, toilet cleaners, shower and tub cleaners, stain removers, floor cleaners, degreasers, window and glass cleaners, and surface cleaners.

Melaleuca has always taken a firm stance against using any toxic substances in its formulas, and it always will. As a result, Melaleuca customers can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing the products they use every day are safer for their home, safer for their loved ones, and safer for the environment.
