The rising transaction costs
of starting a conventional, retail store enterprise prohibits motivated,
entrepreneurial-minded people from taking action.
More and more people of all
ages, from all walks of life are choosing to launch part-time, home-based
enterprises while maintaining an existing salaried or wage-earning job. We
commonly refer to these people as SDI (Self Directed Income) entrepreneurs.
Lots of relevant information at The SDI Eye Opener.
The optimal business
opportunity for this 21st Century comes with a proven business model
that guarantees monthly residual earnings – when and if business is conducted
with dedication to service and ethics.
Multiple millions of people
are choosing to become active entrepreneurs in the SDI (Self Directed Income)
industry – formerly referred to as multi-level marketing or network
marketing. We have changed the language
to avoid and leave behind the negative reputation associated with multi-level
marketing and/or network marketing during the latter years of the 20th
Century – when too many charlatans pursued greed rather than ethical service to
These SDI entrepreneurs are
enjoying being their own boss as they diligently work to secure a solid
financial future for themselves and their families.
In May 2006, a report was released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce wherein it is written: “The reason why
millions of Americans are empowered to participate in alternative work
arrangements, start small businesses or strike out on their own, is because our
economy is free and flexible and resilient. It rewards those who work hard,
take risks, create innovations and embrace change.”
Thomas J. Donahue, President
and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce since 1997, is quoted as saying about
21st Century entrepreneurs: “It is clear that millions of Americans
are seeking viable business opportunities in order to secure their financial
futures, be their own bosses and better balance the responsibilities of career
Now in 2012, more and more
youth are rejecting traditional employee roles while favouring the role of an
SDI entrepreneur as a better way to invest their time, energy and small amounts
of money, while balancing the responsibilities of building a home-based
enterprise while growing a young family. They are realizing that as active SDI
entrepreneurs, they are better positioned to create and manage their financial
destiny by selectively investing their most valuable commodity – time.
While the SDI industry is
becoming ever more popular, indications are that the employee-mentality of
working for major, trans-national corporations, or conventional institutions is
on steady decline. One only has to take notice of the massive layoffs and the
ever-increasing unemployment statistics in recent years.
It seems that the
youth are quickly becoming aware that they can expect no loyalty from the top
of the pyramid within the respective corporations and/or institutions. Neither
is there any loyalty from the employees and/or salaried workers at the fringe
of these pyramids.
It is a fact, that in the
name of profit for the shareholders, and because of the design flaw of usury in
our orthodox, economic system of debt money, the majority of these
trans-national corporations are choosing to outsource contracts to workers in
third-world countries – where labour is cheaper – and often exploited.
It is noteworthy however,
that more and more youthful workers in these third-world countries (such as thePhilippines) are finding creative ways to finance and launch part-time, SDI
enterprises to acquire additional earnings to supplement their meager monthly
The SDI industry proudly
boasts of annual record sales to be approaching $120. billion at the global
level. Of the hundreds of active
companies in the SDI industry, it is noteworthy that two of the pioneers still
hold the lead in annual sales. Based on 2009 statistics, Avon was the leader at
that time with $10.7 billion and Alticor (Amway) was in second place with $8.2
billion in annual wholesale corporate revenue.
As we progress into this 21st
Century, with continuing, downward trends in the economy, it is becoming clear
that the conventional career as an employee for a corporation or an institution
is being abandoned in favour of becoming and entrepreneur in the SDI industry.
It is anticipated that the SDI industry will become the sales and marketing
career of choice.
During this 8th Annual UsuryFree Week (November 13 – 19, 2012) we
are officially launching a beta fundraising project for The UsuryFree Network.
The idea was presented to The
UsuryFree Network in late October, 2012 by Gary Jones, an active usuryfree
creative with a successful career as an SDI entrepreneur. Gary offered his
expertise and experience as an SDI entrepreneneur with the company ‘MaxInternational” – which offers a selection of quality glutathione-supporting,
health and wellness products and an accompanying line of cosmetics.
