Three Resources To Help Increase Your Bottom Line

Richard Brooke Launches Direct Selling Company Legal Defense Fund

We have uncovered three great resources to help any entrepreneur, especially a network marketing independent professional! So much is spoken or written on how much you can make in direct sales, and very little mentioned about increasing your net worth! These resources will help you increase your net worth.

Also, the DS Edge Conference is right around the corner. It’s February 4th & 5th, 2016 in Newport Beach, California.

2012_rb_02And last but not least, Richard Brooke, founder of Life Matters, and long-time ethics committee member of the DSA (Direct Selling Association) has launched a direct selling legal defense fund. The first recipient is Vemma Nutritional Company.

Here are a few points of interest Richard shared on the site, which I think are worth pondering.

VemmaHere are some mistakes that Vemma made which the FTC convinced a judge were worthy of an ex parte action
no due process, no notice, just seize and shut down the company.

Vemma had zero distributor enrollment fees, so most “customers” were also “affiliates” depending on the box they checked. The FTC and judge ruled them, as a result, NOT CUSTOMERS.
Vemma traded ethics and public reputation for immediate sales growth in a segment of the sales force edifying obnoxious behavior.
Vemma allowed distributor videos suggesting significant success by recruiting without appropriate disclaimers.

“And here are the results of the government’s actions.”

* Vemma was entirely shut down worldwide for almost a month while the receiver went about dismantling the company. The receiver repatriated international company bank accounts.

* By the time BK resumed partial control of the company, Wells Fargo had withdrawn his merchant account, placed his name and company name on a watch list (black list), making it impossible to obtain a domestic merchant account, and his sales leaders had cut deals to move to competitive companies.

* The court required Vemma to change its compensation plan to one whereby a sales leader could not be paid on their team sales unless Vemma could prove that 51% of that team’s sales came from customers with the title customer. Affiliate personal purchases cannot qualify them for bonuses, only personally sponsored customer and distributor purchases. That compensation plan is still not effectively programmed and functional as of me writing this almost four months after this event.

* Legal fees have already reached $1.4 million and are expected to reach $3+ million before the case is final.

* Vemma has to get court approval for any compensation, incentive, and/or marketing campaigns it wants to initiate.

Breaking MLM News: The Verdict Is In – In 2016 Trust Instead Of Just New Cars

Weekly Business News Report For The Small and Home-Based Business Community

I was reading in the Wall Street Journal this week and ran across a story titled – Teen Sports Faces a Nutritional-Supplement Debate.  I am a huge advocate of a healthy lifestyle and making sure teen athletes have all the nutrients they need, without the dangers of banned or almost banned ingredients. In this article a company out of Florida, P2Life is on a mission to help teens, specifically Michael Andrews, who is setting new records in swimming as he prepares for compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team.

I wrote an article not to long ago (Investigative Perspective The Supplement Danger Zone) on this very subject as I followed a USAToday investigative series.

I also read today where Echinacea is as effective as the prescription Tamiflu at getting rid of colds and flu symptoms…

How To Tell The Difference Between Green, All Natural And Organic Products

When Does Organic & All Natural Not Really Mean WHat The Label States?

With the weight loss niche growing by leaps and bounds, it has brought into the network marketing community a new focus point or marketing hype in some cases for network marketing companies.

I want to give you a little insight into the three buzz words that are circulating.

Green, Green Living or Sustainable Living:

Wikipedia has the easiest definition to understand: Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and his/her resources.

Natural, or All Natural:

Again I’ll use Wikipedia since the definition is clear: “Natural foods” and “all natural foods” are widely used terms in food labeling and marketing with a variety of interpretations, some of which are vague. The term is assumed to imply foods minimally processed and do not contain manufactured ingredients, but the lack of standards in some jurisdictions means that the term assures nothing. In some places, the term “natural” is defined and enforced. In others, such as the United States, it has no meaning.

The USDA website states the following about “natural” standards:

Natural. As required by USDA, meat, poultry, and egg products labeled as “natural” must be minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients. However, the natural label does not include any standards regarding farm practices and only applies to the processing of meat and egg products. There are no standards or regulations for the labeling of natural food products if they do not contain meat or eggs.”

100% Organic, Organic, Made With Organic Ingredients:

I’ll use Wikipedia again so anyone questioning this article will know I used the primary source for all three definitions. However, I’ll also go deeper here and show the USDA definitions also.

Organic foods are foods that are produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, do not contain genetically modified organisms, and are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives.

The USDA has broken the term “Organic” down into three categories.

100% Organic – To receive this USDA Certification the food must be all organic or contain only organically produced ingredients before it can receive the green & white organic seal.

Organic – The USDA regulation states at least 95% of the food must be organic before it can receive the blue organic seal

Made with Organic Ingredients
– In this case, the food must contain at least 70% organic ingredients. The remaining 30% of ingredients can’t include any genetically modified ingredients.

When I use the word “food” I am referring to any consumable product governed by the USDA.

Here is a little more on labeling from the USDA website:

“How Do I Know if My Food Is Organic?
Look at the label. If you see the USDA organic seal, the product is certified organic and has 95 percent or more organic content. For multi-ingredient products such as bread or soup, if the label claims that it is made with specified organic ingredients, you can be confident that those specific ingredients have been certified organic.

What About Other Labels?

There are other voluntary labels for livestock products, such as meat and eggs:

Free-range. This label indicates that the flock was provided shelter in a building, room, or area with unlimited access to food, fresh water, and continuous access to the outdoors during their production cycle. The outdoor area may or may not be fenced and/or covered with netting-like material. This label is regulated by the USDA.

Cage-free. This label indicates that the flock was able to roam freely, not in a building, room, or enclosed area with unlimited access to food and fresh water during their production cycle.

Natural. As required by USDA, meat, poultry, and egg products labeled as “natural” must be minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients. However, the natural label does not include any standards regarding farm practices and only applies to the processing of meat and egg products. There are no standards or regulations for the labeling of natural food products if they do not contain meat or eggs.

Grass-fed. Grass-fed animals receive a majority of their nutrients from grass throughout their life, while organic animals’ pasture diet may be supplemented with grain. Also, USDA regulated, the grass-fed label does not limit the use of antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides. Meat products may be labeled as grass-fed organic.

Pasture-raised. Due to the number of variables involved in pasture-raised agricultural systems, the USDA has not developed a labeling policy for pasture-raised products.

Humane. Multiple labeling programs make claims that animals were treated humanely during the production cycle, but the verification of these claims varies widely. These labeling programs are not regulated.”
