WorldVentures – Don’t Join Until You Read This!!

Why WorldVentures? This is the question that many ask me when they inquire about what network marketing company I am with.

There are many reasons that I chose a network marketing company in the travel industry and many more key points that caught my attention with WorldVentures.

A good friend came to me and asked me to take a look at her travel MLM company. I immediately told her I had tried network marketing before and didnt want anything to do with it. After avoiding her for a bit, her persistence paid off. I trusted her but the idea of vacationing more with my family and friends peeked my attention more and I finally took a look at WorldVentures.

What I saw in the presentation immediately got me excited. The products just made sense! The questions I asked myself were, “would I rather pay wholesale or retail for my vacations?” and “do I book travel online or know anyone else that does?” Both of those questions were no-brainers. So, basically it boiled down to having access to hundreds of wholesale vacations, getting paid when people booked travel on my travel booking site and building a residual income just by helping others do the same. OK, Im in!! But, wait, whats the catch? The kicker was, once I found out how well the company was doing and how fast it was growing, I realized there was none.

There are many factors in my decision to join forces with WorldVentures and I will highlight the main ones that stuck out to me.

1 ~ Product Travel and Vacations. I dont have to convince anyone to go on vacation or want to save money. Most people want to vacation more and save money doing it but they dont know how! Also, we naturally talk about our vacations, so its easy to share because we already do it anyway. The product stands alone even without network marketing and that was critical in my decision!

2 ~ Industry Travel is the largest industry in the world and is expected to double over the next 10 years because of the Baby-Boomers retiring. What do you think they want to do in their golden years?

3 ~Timing – WorldVentures is about 5 years young and still in pre-momentum. Meaning, they are past the point where most MLM companies fail in the first 2 years of business. Also, about 11 countries just opened and huge market share is available. Know anyone in USA, UK, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Singapore, Israel, Cyprus, Sweden, Germany, Malta or The Netherlands? If you do, these regions are wide open!

4 ~Leadership – Co-founders, Wayne Nugent and Mike Azcue have a proven track record of success! Plus, the addition of Dan Stammen, network marketing legend, as the chief marketing officer solidified it for me. Dan built a sales team which created over 660,000 customers for a New York Stock Exchange listed legal services firm. He has brought his marketing expertise to WorldVentures and built an online system for reps to build their business.

5 ~Training Awesome training system run by Marc Accetta. Marc helped take another MLM go to #1 on the INC 500 list and has brought the same training system to WorldVentures. I thought it was going to be a RAH-RAH session but instead it was nuts and bolts to help build the business.

6 ~ Compensation Plan – A binary system consisting of only 2 teams. This means that you could end up with someone on your team that someone else puts underneath you! When I saw how this worked I was blow away because it is so powerful and helps build the team as a whole!

7 ~ No Monthly Fees All I had to do was sell 4 products and my products and business were free. What?? No monthly overhead?? I know, thats how I felt! Most people will quit MLM because they are spending more than they are making. Help 4 people save money on a vacation and your fees are waived!!

8 ~ Industry Reputation They are the youngest company highlighted in “Success from Home” 2xs in 3 years and “Your Business at Home” in the first year. Not too bad for a company only about 5 years old. They received awards from Carnival Cruise Lines and Funjet Vacations and recently I heard that SEARS is now using the travel booking technology to book travel for their corporate website (Hmmmmchoosing WVs booking engine over the other big travel .coms.. kind of shows how well it performs if SEARS would opt to go with it)

So, all in all, the above highlights are the main reasons I chose to join WorldVentures. Not to mention the the integrity behind the company as a whole and always giving back. Whether its raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters, creating a mission trip or helping change a childs life though their new Manifest Foundation, they seem to always have the right purpose in mind!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the people are cool and fun! WorldVentures is a company that offers vacations, FUN and the possibility to earn money helping the people you care about do the same! Works for me!!

Scions Appeal Aimed At Gen Y

Several automotive brands have tried to lure the hip and the young. But so far, no other brand has done it better than Scion. The gusto of capturing the heart of the generation Y is just one of the strategies of Scion, a division of Toyota Motor Corp.

Scion, which was created in 2003, flaunts the youngest customer base that a brand could seize in the United States market. The Japanese brand has 31 as the average age of customers. With the growing competition all aimed at the youth drivers, Scion still believes that it can do better.

“They’re a smart, diverse population and they know what they want,” Jim Press, president of Toyota Motor North America, said of that generation. “It’s this group more than any other that’s demanded great change in the auto industry. They’ve caused us to rethink how our motor vehicles are designed, sold, financed, delivered and serviced.”

Last Thursday, at the Chicago Auto Show, Scion unleashed two new vehicles that have been meticulously engineered to appeal to those Internet-dwelling, trend-savvy youth consumers the next generation xB and the all-new xD five-door.

The Scion xB, a box-shaped, 5-door compact hatchback, is made bigger than its ancestor. It is designed to appear more rounded. The vehicle, powered by a 2.4L engine, is inspired by the Scion t2B concepts style, which was unveiled at the New York Auto Show last year. The Scion xD, the sporty hatchback built off the Toyota Yaris platform, is the replacement of the xA. The vehicle was introduced at an invitation-only no-camera event early last year in Miami. The xD, powered by new 2ZR-FE 1.8 liter engine, will come standard with 16″ wheels and tires boosted by EBC Greenstuff, CD player by Pioneer with mp3 capability, power locks, windows, and other upbeat features. It will appear on showrooms in spring this year.

Scion reflects Toyotas target market expansion to cover this generation of 63 million. Every year, four million of the said generation reaches the driving age. “The arrival of these two new products has inspired us to raise to a new level our ability to connect with young buyers,” Scion Vice President Mark Templin said. When Scion unrolled the new members of its clan, the introduction was also coupled with Scion City launch in Second Life, an online world with 3.4 million virtual residents.

The next generation Scion xB will replace the boxy image of wagon. It may still appear boxy but the utility vehicle is given softer edges to enhance styling. The engineers of the automaker have extended the wheel base by four inches, the length by a foot and the width by three inches.

“Toyota probably better than anybody has the ability to anticipate where the market is headed,” said brand analyst Erich Merkle of IRN Inc. in Grand Rapids. Scion’s many custom options will make it a hit among this youthful crowd, he added.

Toyota has never looked to the brand for mass sales, but rather to reach the generation Y customers. But the swift Scion lineup has to be aimed at the heart of the generation Y, about 65 million people age 8 to 22 who, as Automotive News predicts, will be buying four million cars per year by 2010. And many of them will be searching for more than insipid transportation.

Scion Vice President Jim Farley said, “Once, quality and reliability were enough to sell a vehicle. Now you need emotion, individuality. Buyers often assume you have good quality. Now you have to add emotion.”

Decline In Construction Accidents Linked To Economy

With the U.S. economy in the midst of a recession, many businesses have suffered the effects of a significant decrease in consumer spending. Real estate, historically regarded as an exceptionally good investment, has proven to be less than lucrative as home prices continue to fall in most areas of the United States. Houses sit empty in newly constructed neighborhoods and many contractors are struggling to find financial stability. Many construction workers who have previously found steady employment with a professional contractor have also struggled to find any work at all. Many skilled laborers, though highly qualified, find there is little to no demand for construction workers.

While there has been a significant decrease in the number of jobs for construction workers, there is an oddly positive bright side to this downturn. On August 20, Bloomberg news reported that deaths in the workplace fell to their lowest levels in 16 years, down 10 percent in 2008. This can most likely be attributed to the fact that there was noticeably less activity in dangerous fields such as building construction. Indeed, while deaths for construction workers dropped 20 percent from 2007, spending on construction projects fell 5 percent. According to the report, transportation accidents were still responsible for the highest number of work-related deaths.

Though construction accident deaths fell in 2008, workers should still be aware of potential safety hazards on the job site. There have still been many high profile construction accident fatalities over the past few months. Most recently, a man fell to his death in Branson, Missouri while working on a construction tank at an ethanol plant. Another man lost his life in Brooklyn, New York, while investigating incorrectly assembled scaffolding. According to a New York Times report, a section of rope disconnected, detaching the scaffolding from the fifth story wall. The worker fell to a first floor terrace and died.

Many times, construction accidents can be prevented by simple oversight and a conscientious commitment to safety by all workers on the job site. The tragic reality, however, is that safety is often not the primary concern of the workers or those in charge. Time constraints, deadlines, and a casual attitude often are contributing factors to preventable construction accidents. Workers on job sites that seem potentially dangerous should not only take extra precautions, but also notify their foreman or other job site supervisor. Vigilance regarding safety, especially in a dangerous profession such as construction, is its own reward.

Steps To Being Successful In Construction Jobs

Constructions jobs have once again made way towards the top in the job market. Since the worldwide economy has recently undergone recession and is trying to recover, huge investments are taking place again in the field of infrastructure. This has resulted in the growth of job opportunities in the construction industry. Although there are certain hurdles in being successful in this job, such as the many challenges and risks involved, you can compensate for these by working hard and receiving very attractive salaries. There are some simple steps you should follow in order to be successful in construction jobs.

When it comes to the educational qualifications required for construction jobs, this varies with the kind of career under consideration. There are some careers within this industry that require specialized qualifications and there are others that do not require any special qualification. For instance, if you wish to become an architect, civil or electrical engineer, you will have to complete certain specialized degrees. For this purpose, you must plan everything in advance. The next most important step if you are employed at a manager level position in a construction firm is to build a sense of trust and confidence amongst your colleagues. You must possess very good leadership skills and be able to guide your subordinates in performing their functions in the most efficient manner.

When it comes to construction jobs, a manager should be able to effectively communicate the roles of each individual under his/her control. The workers must be explained in detail what is exactly required of them. As a manager, you can hold meetings on a regular basis to stay updates with the activities of the rest of the employees. These meetings should also be used to solve any issues, problems and confusions that the employees may be having regarding the tasks that have been assigned to them. Always remember to draw up a proper plan before the start of a project and stick to it unless some necessary amendments are required. The company’s resources must be directed towards the effective execution of the plan.

Another important requirement for construction jobs is to learn to adapt to the situation instead of changing it to suit you. There are a lot of challenges associated with change and as a manager, you should try to avoid these. Effective communication between the various employees of the company is also essential for the overall profitability of the company. If you maintain good links with your colleagues, they will feel more comfortable telling you about their problems and needs. The final step you need to follow is to work with honesty and utmost determination.

Advice From Insurance Brokers, Perth Business Owners Can Use to Avoid Common Claims

For small business owners, when things dont go to plan, it can have a devastating impact on your bottom line. Although you may have planned out protection with your insurance agents, the disruption from a claim can still affect your business. Fortunately, here is some professional advice you can use to avoid common claims.


This is one of the most common issues according to insurance brokers. Perth small business owners can struggle with the devastating effects of theft. The easiest access can be through a glass window or door, but it is also possible for thieves to access your business premises through the ceiling. Although many small business owners cant afford the high security measures employed by a bug company, there are some steps to minimise theft.
Firstly, you should make sure that you have adequate lighting in and around your building, particularly after business hours. This can be an excellent deterrent against break ins. Additionally, using suitable locks and heavier duty screens can help to more thoroughly secure your premises. To minimise losses, you should also consider using a store safe to hold cash or valuables when you close each day.

Damage From Storms:

Property damage from storms can be frequent, particularly in the turbulent weather in Australia. You may find that you have stock damage, a leaking roof, and other water damage. Additionally, electrical storms can cause power surges that damage electrical equipment and machinery.
To reduce the risk of a storm damage claim, you should ensure that your property is regularly maintained. Drain pipes should be cleaned, and your roof and ceiling should be checked and repaired. Additionally, you should be storm aware. If there is a forecast for a storm, you can alleviate the risk by turning off your equipment and computers at your main power source.

Accidental Computer Damage:

These days, most businesses need their computers to maintain even basic business activities. This means that accidental damage to your business computers can have a devastating effect. Unfortunately, computers are vulnerable to power surges, theft, spills and even falls. Something as simple as a laptop being knocked off a counter can prompt a claim and interrupted business. Fortunately, there are simple precautions to minimise your risk. Computer locks cost very little but can be used to anchor your computer to the surface. Additionally, you may want to invest in sleeves or covers to protect against spill damage. If you have particularly sensitive computer equipment, you may wish to institute a no food or drink rule in its vicinity.

The 10 Steps Of Car Salesman Training

When you become an auto sales person, the dealership where you are starting your sales career will typically provide some sort of car salesman training. This training will teach you everything you need to start selling vehicles regardless of you ever having any sales experience. Every car dealer has a certain selling system that they teach their sales people which may consist of 8 to 12 different steps. Overall the car sales systems are generally the same with some of the steps get combined and other dealers drag them out.
I will use a 10 step system to illustrate the steps and the reasons for each step in the car salesman training program so you can see the importance of each step. The sales systems that auto dealers use to train car salesmen is not been put together haphazardly, there have been years of study and research done to create an atmosphere that is conducive to buying a car.

The Car Salesman Training Steps

1. Meet and Greet: This is the introduction of the car sales person to the potential car buyer. You shake hands, exchange names and try to get comfortable with each other.

2. Discovery: This part of the car salesman training is where the sales person will ask the customer questions and try to understand what they want, such as options, colors, new or used, price range etc.

3. Choose a Vehicle: This is a critical step because if you put them in the wrong car you wont sell them no matter how good a car salesman you might be. This is where the car salesman training can make a big difference because you must be sure to choose a vehicle in their price range they actually like and want to drive home.

4. Why Buy Today: After selecting the right car it is time to tell them why they should buy it now. It could be any number of reasons depending on the car. It could be special financing, other interested buyers or the big sale that is going on.

5. Walkaround: During your car salesman training you will be instructed on how to do a proper Walkaround which is exactly what it sounds like. You show the customer all of the features and benefits from under the hood to the interior.

6. Test Drive: You car sales training will also show you the key points of taking your customer for a test drive while you have the potential car buyer focus on the areas or options that are important to them.

7. Negotiation: You learn how to present numbers and payments to the customer and overcome objections which keep you car buyer from saying yes.

8. Closing: Now its time to close the car sale. There are many different car sales closing techniques which you can use to close the car sale which are based on the type of customer you are selling.

9. Delivery: The car salesman training will take you from doing paperwork to greeting the car ready for delivery and introducing your customer to the business manager.

10. Follow Up: The final step of any quality car sales training system includes following up with your customer. It is important to have a happy and satisfied customer so they will return and buy more cars over the years.

As you can see, there is much more to selling cars than driving cars and collecting checks. Each step of the car salesman training is quite involved and could cover all of the word tracks, sales scripts and psychological factors that are involved in selling cars professionally.

A Simple Guide In Developing A Crisis Management Plan

Crisis management is said to be the procedure in which an organization takes on the different events or situations that may threaten or harm the stakeholders, the general public and/or the company itself. Before you can make the crisis management plan, there is a need to first define the threats or crises that might affect your business. In order for you to identify them, there are three things that you have to look for. These are the events that threaten the success of the business, the element of surprise and short time that is needed to make the right decisions. According to experts though, there is a fourth element required to determine whether a certain event is a crisis and that is the need for change. In this case, if that particular situation does not call for change, it can be considered as just a failure or an incident and not a crisis.

Another thing that you have to know before you make the crisis management plan is the very little contrast between risk and crisis management. For many years, there have been comparisons between the two even including debates about risk management vs. crisis management. The main dissimilarity between them is that risk management involves the assessment of potential threats and searching for methodologies that will help the business in avoiding the threats. Crisis management on the other hand deals with threats themselves after they have broken out of company control.

The crisis management plan is created in order for the supervisors or the business owners to obtain guidelines for any crisis situation. Thus, it should be an effective document, which includes the fact that it should be continually updated since the industry, the company and the world changes rapidly. Crisis management planning is and will always be a part of the overall protection and emergency awareness and strategic planning process of the business. To get started, five Ps and one E should be remembered: predict, position, prevent, plan, persevere and evaluate.

The first step is to always identify the issues but this does not mean that once you have detected the concerns, you will stop there. This is an ongoing process which includes creating a list of every imaginable company issue starting with the things that will most likely happen. Then you will need to categorize and prioritize the items on the list. You can assign a crisis team that will help you in completing the task. The next step is for policy preparation which involves the policy statements with general principles such as honest, direct and timely responses, ethical standards integration and considering media when implementing the business practices in dealing with emergencies.

The crisis management plan is not complete without the specific responses toward the threats. When drafting them, consider the scope of the crisis, the established unified response and the knowledge of the staff members. The crisis management planning process should be clear, concise, simple and consistent so that the crisis management plan can help in identifying the things that happened, why they occurred and what the company should do to ensure it will never take place again.
