How You Can Make a Full-time Income from Home
My heart is to see every woman who wants to be home taking care of her home and family to be able to do so. Some women want to work and some need income. When you read Proverbs 31 a woman can get discouraged! How can this woman do all the things she does? Let me help you: husbands and wives often miss that little phrase saying that she had servants. But still, the implication is that she went beyond “just” caring for her family (a full-time job on it’s own!). She had cottage industries that also brought in income for the family so they had a better lifestyle (“she clothed them in purple” – which meant the best).
Let me be really transparent here. When I started this blog a year ago I was under the impression that it was easy and within a year I’d be earning about 6 figures. Helping younger women was my purpose and goal, not the 6 figures those classes talked about. I just didn’t know how hard this would all be when I started my first class back in March 2016. Many posts take me a day to write and some take weeks to months of research before I even write it. I have made so little income from Amazon that I haven’t even seen a check yet. They are waiting to reach the “minimum payout” before they send a check. I’ve worked so hard on this website – building it from scratch myself – that my house has suffered. I don’t even like to admit that! It’s just me here and I have to choose whether to research, write, record cooking videos, create new recipes, edit videos, answer inquiries, take never-ending webinars on blogging, Pinterest, Facebook analytics, Instagram, etc. or take care of the house. Sometimes, like today, I haven’t eaten a meal in 8 hours while I write this and I haven’t seen the preview or tested all the links yet. What I’m going to describe below can be hard work to start, but if you start on the services side, the outlay is minimal (unlike a blog) and the rewards can add up as you work the business. Or you can start on the product side, if you like… but I’m getting ahead of myself.
Just a note before we begin: This is an updated post from earlier this year. Since I wrote the original post, our company has gone through MANY changes as part of their 20th anniversary blitz. They have added many new companies from around the world, opened an office and distribution center in Mexico, and they are now being publicly traded on the Nasdq stock exchange. New products have been added. A new doctor was added to the team – the one who developed the beating heart procedure. The new Snap2Finish Site (use Referrer Code: 101728039) has made it easy to create many photo projects right from your phone! NO APP NEEDED!! And just recently a whole new services division was released! Two months ago they started offering a ready-to-go Internet marketing system. Just plug in your distributor information and grab the links to start advertising online. So let’s look at just some of the product and income producing opportunities available.
What We Are
We are a Network Marketing Company updated for the new millennia. Gone are the days that we put up our noses at Multi-level Marketing. Do you use Amazon? Ever click on “other sellers?” Those are virtual stores, a type of multi-level or online marketing. We no longer need to go door to door or harass our family and friends to “buy in” to our product line so we can make money. Today anyone with a computer can find honest work from home. And, with Internet shopping leading box store sales, anyone who is willing to put in some effort on the front end can earn money working from home. While there are still many schemes out there, there are also many good opportunities. This is one of them.
I have a dear friend who is very knowledgeable about organics, natural, healthy living, etc. They own a dairy farm. I’ve known them for a long, long time. Her son, Noah, introduced me to a way to earn money from home that he and his wife are using. You basically swap where you shop and introduce others to do the same. It’s not the old “beat down your friends, family and neighbors to buy from you” of old. You truly swap where you shop and show others how to do the same. You become the middleman, instead of somebody else.
Little did I know when I started that the company was SO much more than supplements. And with my background in finance, in addition to health, nutrition, home-ec teacher and homemaker, some of the other lines they carry are really up my alley. I am excited about the new services line…but let’s continue to learn more about the company and income opportunities.
The Vetting Process
Noah and his wife Anna didn’t just want anything that could make them money. They wanted something that was honest and fit their high standards of being healthy for them, their little children and the environment. After trying – and not doing well at a couple opportunities – they found a company that fit the bill. This company is honest. They are a publicly traded company, meaning their practices are open to the public. The founder is so highly respected, a book he wrote on health is in the Smithsonian Institute. He was “the expert” on a show back in the 1960’s. The company is family oriented. The company doesn’t focus on just one type of product or way to earn money but on many. In fact, they coined the terms “Betterment” “Omnidirectional” and “Swap Where You Shop.” Check out the Youngevity Mission Statement.
I mentioned above that this company is Omnidirectional. This means they partner with (or buy) the best of the best companies and products. So even though they started with health supplements, they now have many “verticals” (types of products).
NOTE: All product links show Retail prices, not the wholesale that a distributor or CEO would pay.
90 For Life
The start of the company was Dr. Wallach’s discovery that all mammals need 90 essential nutrients to survive. These are mostly missing in our diets today. Therefore, he created a line called “90 for Life.” He is quoted as saying, “Every man, woman and child needs 90 essential nutrients just to survive, much less to thrive. To put the odds in your favor to live as long as possible, with the highest possible quality of life, you must get these nutrients every day.” –Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND – Founder of Youngevity. Read more about the 90 for Life.
They have a couple vendors. They own the Youngevity coffee plantation outright. The products are Rainforest Alliance certified, Fair Trade Certified, environmentally produced and organic. All the profits go to the Youngevity Be The Change Foundation – which gives back to those in need. And taste, oh yeah, it’s the best. The other that I’ve tried is Javalution. Coffee with a reason.
Have you heard of the healthiest tea out there – purple tea? They have it.
Yes, you can make them there. We have two sites. The Snap2Finish Site (use Referrer Code: 101728039) is new and available to anyone with a referrer code. You can use your phone or computer to quickly and easily make the highest quality photo projects and gifts. The other is the Heritage Makers Site. This site must be done from your computer. It allows you more creativity with your projects.
If you like making greeting cards and sending them? They have a greeting card division. I sent a card to someone who signed up under me and it was beautiful. It wasn’t hard to make, either! No going to the store or the post office. I created it, put in her address and they printed and mailed it – for about $3. I went on FB live and Helen walked me through making my first card so I didn’t have to learn it myself. This is part of our Heritage Makers division. It requires joining Youngevity, as a customer, distributor or CEO, then adding Heritage Makers to your profile.
What about Scrapbooking?
Yes, one of the former owners of the big scrapbooking party company now is part of this company.
DIY Craft and Home projects?
Yep. Order the kit and you’re good to go. All products are mix and match, too. Make any project your own using the scrapbooking products.
Need laundry soap that’s safe for you, your family and the environment? Yep, they have it. What about toothpaste that doesn’t have unsafe chemicals? Yep, that too. I even bought a little stick blender for my drinks. Froth half and half into a light cream in seconds! Blend your powdered drink mixes in seconds, too.
Yes, they have jewelry. The Mialisia Versastyle chains sold me – and I’m not a jewelry person. But when one piece can be worn in a whole slew of ways – and comes with a closure that these damaged can work, I’m in!! I also bought the fillable locket. SO fun! The “Locket Builder” site is SO fun. You see exactly what it will look like – and the price – before you order it. My locket has a mom “coin” (backing) and a Bible charm in it right now. I ordered a rose gold “Faith” coin. I got several free charms with my March order. One was a green St. Patty’s Day hat, another was a four-leaf clover. That was fun! Oh, the possibilities!
Did you know our skin is an organ? The difference is we see it and can touch it. All those skin cells absorb what lands on the skin. Many women put on gloves when they wash the dishes or use chemicals at home or at work. But did you think about what’s in your makeup and beauty products? Did you ever check out even the “natural” makeup on the sites that rate makeup for purity and health? Some will shock you! But here we have a line that is up front about what’s in the products and you know they are safe for you too. And best of all, the products work and make you look good, too. Check out or line here: Beauty Products. And once you join as a customer, distributor or CEO, you will have access to the private FB page and instruction videos that teach you how to use the products to enhance and correct your beauty.
Yes, they have food. The chocolate is SO good. I’m not a hot chocolate person, but I’m told that’s good, too. There are also other foods including keto products, meal replacement products, and more. Coming soon are spices, culinary essential oils, and mixes. Can’t wait to see that line. If I had those products while I was in culinary school I would have blown the other students out of the water!!
Don’t like the chemicals or high fructose corn syrup in the normal fitness drinks? Youngevity’s sports drink alternative, Rebound, comes either in a can or in a powder. I keep a little pouch of the powder in my purse for anytime I need it. I love using them when I am going to be cleaning all day. Not only does it give me the nutrients I need to keep going, I find I’m not sore the next day like I was before. Nice.
We can’t forget Fluffy or Fido, can we? Dr. Wallach started as a veterinarian, so, of course, we have pet products.
Confused about essential oils? Concerned about the ones you see at the corner drugstore or grocery store? We have what you need. And we have high quality essential oils, diffusers, charts, various training opportunities and a private Facebook page on how to use them and get your questions answered. There’s even a product training call every week. Coming in September: Culinary usage (food grade) essential oils that are made from the highest quality steam sterilized herbs and spices. They are pure and lab tested. In fact there will be a whole line of culinary products added to the line in September. (yes! – you can’t see me smiling on the outside and jumping up and down and the inside, but I am!!!!)
Youngevity even has a financial services division. I am SO pumped about this site! For one, there’s no cost to join this part of the company as an agent. Secondly, you are suggesting services that almost every home uses: ID protection (which includes a commercial grade computer security program), Road Assistance, Electronics gadgets services (think Geek Squad on steroids – every electronic device in your home that you can plug-in, lift, and carry). You can sign up for a virtual doctor service and have an MD on call 24 hours a day to answer your questions and suggest a treatment AND they can write prescriptions! I needed an antibiotic for a dentist appointment and the new dentist wouldn’t give it to me without seeing me first. My MD didn’t know the protocol, so he said no, and my heart doctor was out-of-town. With this service I could have gotten the antibiotic without jumping through all the hoops I did at that time. What about pinkeye? Why pay for a doctor visit or walk-in clinic visit when you can just pick up the phone and have the doctor prescribe it. Of course there are things a virtual doctor cannot do, but for the easy things, they are there. Just an FYI: My insurance company just released a similar service for $30 more a month. And I believe that was per prescriber, not per family as this is! Included is a Rx discount card that gives discounts at many pharmacies and for many drugs that other insurers don’t cover – even diabetic supplies (feel free to download the card right now, if you wish!).
What about businesses? There is a whole line of services available for businesses – including loans. The loan process is simple. Once you provide the documents requested, you normally have an answer in 1-3 business days. There’s also phone and internet services, a group virtual doctor plan, and much more.
Agents are paid commissions upfront (beginning of contract), residual (ongoing basis) or both, depending on the type of service and the contract we have with the provider.
Once again, the backing for this line is the best you can buy. The Identity protection service is not available normally for consumers. Neither is the Electronics gadgets services. These are commercial quality not normally offered to the public.
Want to pay less when you go to the stores you love? The services division has an app called Cartripple. This is a cash-back savings app One guy told me he went into Best Buy, looked at what they had. Then he talked to the salesman to help make a decision, then ordered and paid for it on his phone. By the time he got to the service desk it was pulled and ready to take with him. I’ve only used this app online, so I don’t know about the in-store usage, but that’s what I’m told. I wish I had known about the app before I bought my really expensive upright freezer last year! Sign up for Cartripple today, no need to join or make any commitments with this one, either!
And, once you are an agent, you will have access to members only deals on hotels, airfare, car rentals, and entertainment. These are the prices they charge for bulk/commercial accounts. I’m not allowed to disclose the prices, but someone just said they saved *** – a significant amount – on airline tickets to Puerto Rico the other day. I almost said how much he saved – but I caught myself!
This is truly a place where you can swap where you shop. And it’s a place where you can share with others high quality products and earn money when they buy.
Is This Just for a Select Few?
No! Last spring I read an article called, “Why Ivy League Grads are Going Into Multi-Level Marketing.” More and more people are doing this. How often do you hear someone say they “bought it online”? Every day, right? While in the old days when you ordered something from a catalog the product was many times inferior, those days are gone. You can get just about anything online these days – high to low quality. People are SO busy, they are happy to get products online – especially when it ships right to your home. Why not get it online AND make money at the same time? That’s what I’m talking about. Don’t pay someone else the commission to be the middleman. BE the middleman and earn it yourself!
And – AND – your kids can sign up under you and generate their own income. A teenager came to one of our meetings and showed us the Mialisia Versastyle jewelry. I wish I had recorded that demo. In 5 minutes she had it on her head as a headband, around her waist as a belt, around her wrist as a bracelet, around her ankle as an anklet, clipped other pieces to it, layered it with other pieces, added a fillable charm, then a tassel. It was so quick and easy! She is making money with the jewelry. She’s old enough to use the car bonus money to get a car for herself, if she ranks up to that level (I don’t know where she stands in the rankings). Another man in my upline said his teenage son has the car bonus already and is saving money for college to boot. And all the while your kids work their business, you are also earning money from their sales! Your Youngevity distributorship is willable, too. It doesn’t die with you.
How Does it Work?
Well, that depends on you and the verticals (lines of product). Some people just want to do the online thing. Some like the Social Selling part (at home parties). Some like “coffee shop interviews.” Some people like to carry an inventory and do direct selling. Some have more of the business background and the services division is right up their alley. If that’s you, go for it. They all work as long as you put in the effort. Noah did a variation of the “coffee shop interview” and held an open house to explain it to many of his closest friends all at one time (he does these via Zoom for others, too). Some like the home parties. Scrapbooking and jewelry lend themselves to this, although it’s not necessary.
Here is a video by Youngevity from earlier this year, Youngevity, Your Path to Betterment, that I think you’ll enjoy.
How Do I Earn an Income?
In order to be legal, I’m going to send you directly to the company compensation page. That way I don’t misspeak and stay out of trouble and you get it “right from the horse’s mouth” as the saying goes. It’s actually better to have this explained to you, unless you have seen compensation plans before. The Services side is a little different from the product side. Here are the links: Youngevity Compensation Plan and the Services Compensation. If you’d like to talk with Noah about his experience, I can set that up. Please use the “contact me” form below or go on my Youngevity website for my contact information.
Will Someone Help Me?
If you’re like 99% of the people out there, you haven’t been trained to do this – or you were trained incorrectly at another company and failed. Everything you need, and I mean EVERYTHING, is available through the company’s new virtual “training university,” trainers, face to face meetings, FaceBook groups and live presentations, customer service, training calls, videos, and the like. I have not run into anyone who says, “I don’t make any money from you, so forget you.” The heart of the company is people helping other people succeed. While there may be some people out there who don’t follow company policy, I can vouch for Noah (I’ve known him since he was 12) and the people he recommends.
Setting up your own MLM business is much easier than when I set up this blog. You don’t have to learn about websites, plug-ins, SEO optimization, social media integration, lead pages, security, spammers, hacking, images – and how to add them correctly, or anything else I had to learn about for this blog this past year. You don’t even need a dedicated webpage. All the links above were part of just being a CEO qualified Branch Associate. If you decide you want the whole marketing package done for you, Youngevity has that, too. Click the “Get Access Now” button on the sidebar to go to my marketing website. They are also beginning to give us social media images and copy. What a timesaver!
How to Get Involved
Noah called me to get me involved. I introduced a young lady who was in my online health coach certification class. She, in turn, introduced her family. You can also share the opportunity online as I’m doing here or through a marketing website you can get through the company. That’s how it works. Contact me below through the “leave a reply” link (not public) or through my Youngevity website to get started.
