Pets At Work...At Home?!?

Have you seen newspaper articles and TV news show spots about people bringing their pets to work? Is this a veiled attempt to makerepparttar 122546 workplace more like home?

Supposedly, some people claim that it creates greater productivity and a better sense of well-being. Of course, not all pets and/or occupations are exactly suited to it...

"Now Trixie, you be a good poodle and stop jumping onrepparttar 122547 scaffolding. We're 20 stories up...Trixie??"

"Hey Buster, you lucky kittycat! You're going with Mommy to work atrepparttar 122548 dog pound!!"

Working at home naturally means your pet's there with you, however. Not alwaysrepparttar 122549 best thing for productivity and well-being, somehow. When my dog Hunter is with me, he'll play nonstop with his tennis ball - usually, when he's not bellowing at it for havingrepparttar 122550 nerve to roll under a bureau under which he no longer fits. I once saw a Great Dane dive under a couch for his squeaky toy. Unfortunately, I was a passenger on that couch for a short flight...

What is MLM ?

Written by Fernando Soave

Multilevel Marketing is one ofrepparttar fastest growing yet most misunderstood methods of moving products in use today. It has been termed by many asrepparttar 122545 Wave-of-the Eighties.

But, it will go far beyond that. Byrepparttar 122546 90's more than 100 billion dollars woth of products and services has been moved through Multilevel Marketing companies. As we are inrepparttar 122547 21st century watch out !

What is MLM ?

This question is quite frequently in response to a button we often wear or we have seen wearing by others.

Let's explain it .

1. Marketing simply means moving a product or service fromrepparttar 122548 manufacturer or provider torepparttar 122549 consumer. 2. Multilevel refers torepparttar 122550 system of compensation provided torepparttar 122551 persons who are causingrepparttar 122552 product to move orrepparttar 122553 service to be provided. "Multi" means more than one. "Level" means generation.

There are really 5 basic methods of moving products : 1. Retailing. ex.repparttar 122554 drug store,repparttar 122555 department store,.... You go into a store and buy something. 2. Direct Sales. ex. Tupperware, Avon, ..... 3. Multilevel Marketing. This should not be confused with retailing and Direct Sales which commonly is. 4. Mail Order. This can be an MLM but mostly is included inrepparttar 122556 Direct Sales category. 5. Pyramid Sales. This type of Sales is to often confused with MLM. The fact is, Pyramides are illegal. The main reasons they may be illegal is their failure to move a product or to provide a valid service. If a product doesn't move, how can you even call it "marketing", let alone "Multilevel Marketing". Multilevel it may be, but Marketing they are not !!!

Now, most objections that people have about getting into Multilevel Marketing are due to not realisingrepparttar 122557 difference between MLM, Pyramid Sales andrepparttar 122558 Direct Sales methods of marketing.

This is understandeble because most reputable MLM companies belong torepparttar 122559 Direct Selling Association.

We have been conditioned to think of MLM as door to door direct sales programs because our first encounter with them was when a distributor knocked on our door to sell us something.

Anyway, there are some features that differentiate MLM from Retail and Direct Sales companies and on very significant difference is that in MLM you are in business for YOURSELF but not BY YOURSELF.

Being in business for yourself means you are buyingrepparttar 122560 products WHOLESALE fromrepparttar 122561 company you are representing. This means also that you can use these products for your own consumption at WHOLESALE PRICES.

Since we are buying products WHOLESALE we can, if we wish, sell these products at RETAIL and make a PROFIT.

The most common misunderstanding about MLM isrepparttar 122562 notion that you HAVE TO sell retail to be successful.

You may sell if you want to or have to due to your particulare program procedure, but in regard to makingrepparttar 122563 larger sums of income,repparttar 122564 real success is in buildingrepparttar 122565 organisation.
