Ask Your Boss For A 20% Raise Or Set Up Your Plan B Now

Sure, he/she will laugh you out the office door with a stupid sign on your backside. It's simply not the way businesses operate except in Internet Marketing where you own the business, not your boss. The better your Plan B income the bigger raise you can give yourself.

Is that a good reason for all of us to be the CEO of our own home based company? You bet, a home based business, where we make the BIG money and build our own residual income rather than supporting our boss or the stockholders who own the company that gives us a paycheck.

Our home based business focuses on Internet Marketing. You might ask, why would anyone choose that direction vs working on a different business model?

Great question, I understand. Let me try to explain a valid reason. Unfortunately, only about 3% of the American population has ever been successful in any business long-term. 95-97% of most business people never make it 5 years for several reasons. Once we throw in cash, skills and talent required there's always something important in the mix. Failure is easy, success is full-time.

Not good odds, right? Even brick and mortar businesses have a 90%+ fail rate, only 5-10% survive for 5 or more years. Look around your neighborhood, ask your friends and business acquaintances what has been their experiences in the business world.

Every business has challenges. Sometimes it's as simple as NO cash and that puts a real crimp in operations. Many times its lack of know-how and then there is always the people problems. Coming from a business able to pay $28 hour wages to your own business able to pay $8 hour wages is a huge change for any of us.

Usually, there is a good reason for success or failure. Lack of sales is right up there at the top. Working for yourself or for an employer is never easy. There will always be glitches in the road whether you're an employee or the CEO. Business owners deal with theft, police, payroll taxes, and many other problems.

Franchising may be the answer you're looking for, but let me share my capsule opinion with you. IF you ever dreamed of having your own business then you may find this helpful, I hope so.

First, NEVER believe a franchisor is in your corner and concerned about the investment you're about to make. His/her concern is that your check is good and will cash at the bank when you give him your check.

Truth is.... you may be the salesman's ticket to keeping his/her job. No matter how smart you are, don't make major business decisions without your support team, plus legal counsel and accounting expertise.

Usually, franchise fees are $20,000 up, so it's not chump change. Most franchisees seem to offer 2 weeks training at the home office and then you're ready to roll on your own dime, hard work and long hours. In most you'll get an operation manual and legal issues about the franchise in another binder.

Internet Marketing is our choice for good reason. The entry fee is usually very fair and reasonable, under $500-$1,000 in most cases. You can find training courses and share information with others who have been successful in the Internet Marketing business. Be careful of whom you believe. Everyone is not trustworthy.

The opportunities in Internet Marketing to make a good income are exceptional, find a product that everyone has or needs; regular upgrades and/or enhancements are the norm. The money earned on a residual basis is good, sometimes exceptional for those willing to work hard and build a team.

As you know, most jobs pay for services rendered. Let's assume you are an Administrative Assistant, a hair dresser, a barber, a dentist, a doctor, a lawyer, an auto mechanic, a grass cutter, a landscaper, you can add hundreds more if necessary, but you get the picture. NO show, NO pay, right?

An Insurance Agent sells you a policy and gets paid commissions [residual income] for as long as you have the policy, same goes for the power company, the telephone company, cable TV service, and the network marketing guru who sold you a product or service on auto-ship.

Something to think about. You make a sale ONE time and get paid forever is an awesome idea and reality for millions of folks just like you and me
