September Team Tip | Don’t Go Broke Trying To Get Rich

A team member sent this Ray Higdon excerpt out in a recent newsletter to her team (Thanks, Lori!), and it really spoke to me.

I see a LOT of people that are going broke trying to get rich quick. Stop it. Your income will be determined by how many people you impact, how much value you bring to the marketplace and how many problems you help solve.

None of those virtuous acts are cheap or happen magically, they happen with work and YOU have what it takes to make it happen and to create the life of your dreams.

This is good advice. But there’s actually more to it in Youngevity. There’s something special about our business model — something unique to our company alone. Do you know what it is?

A lot of MLM companies expect you to become “garage qualified” by purchasing an abundance of product you don’t expect to use in order to participate in their comp plan. Talk about “going broke trying to get rich”!

hqdefaultAt Youngevity, we teach people to “Switch Where You Shop” instead. We simply redirect our spending. Got a line item on the family budget for nutritional products? Buy them from your YGY business instead. And then teach others to do the same.

Other popular “switch” categories include: coffee & energy drinks, fashion & jewelry, skin & body care, home & garden, pet products, makeup and more.

And don’t forget personalized gifts for weddings, birthdays, teacher appreciation, and holidays.

As Ray suggests, it’s all about value in the marketplace. And YOU have that value. It’s all part of YOUngevity. Now let’s get out there and spread some value.
