The SDI (Self Directed Income) entrepreneurs love the “home office” of the selected SDI company (or companies) in their SDI Portfolio.
Unfortunately, the SDI industry - otherwise known as (a) multi-level marketing or (b) network marketing still suffers an imperfect image in the eyes of journalists, editors and publishers in the mainstream media - whether electronic or print.
The SDI industry has been highly successful and SDI entrepreneurs are fairly compensated for effectively marketing and distributing quality products and/or services to consumers. The truth is that the SDI industry has created more millionaires than any other business model since its birth in the mid-20th Century.
Why then does the mainstream media ignore or avoid any positive coverage of this popular and ever-expanding business model.
Could it be that many of the “home office” companies within the SDI industry are debt-free - and therefore evade monthly usury payments to the major banking corporations? Just wondering!
The SDI industry has been evolving since it was birthed approximately 70 years ago. According to the Network Marketing Business Journal (NMBJ), SDI companies are operating in 144 countries and estimates are that 80+ million distributorships in the SDI industry are currently active.
The SDI industry is a sub-group within the Direct Selling Industry and both continue to grow domestically and internationally. According to the World Federation of Direct Selling Association, the annual, global, retail sales for the Direct Selling Industry reached $154 billion in 2011 and $139 billion of that amount was marketed by SDI entrepreneurs.
The future does look bright for the SDI industry and when a couple of other newsworthy items are improved, the mainstream media might be motivated to give the SDI industry the positive coverage it deserves.
Statistics indicate that 50% of new (start-up) companies fold or file for bankruptcy within the first five years.
The attrition rate within the SDI industry remains critically high. The Direct Selling Association (DSA) reports that the distributor retention rate is estimated to be approximately 10% over time - or otherwise stated, statistics show that the attrition rate within the SDI industry has a history of being in the range of approximately 90%.
Many of the people who enrol as SDI entrepreneurs lack the entrepreneurial mind-set that is required to succeed. Instead, they maintain the “employee mentality” that is commonplace for salaried or wage earning employees. Since formal education teaches little or nothing about entrepreneurism in general, nor about the SDI industry in particular, what is needed is an SDI University.
Even the McDonald’s corporation was astute enough to design and launch “Hamburger University” in Elk Grove Village, Illinois in 1961 to professionally train its staff. Ray Kroc is quoted as saying: “If we are going anywhere, we’ve got to have talent. And, I’m going to put my money in talent.”
Indeed, the SDI industry needs an SDI University for new enrollees. A wide variety of learning techniques can be utilized to prepare prospective SDI entrepreneurs for their newly chosen sales careers.
Though many SDI entrepreneurs seem to be more aware and awake about issues relating to the media, politics, and economics, too many are still ignorant of the ‘truth’ about modern money creation and how the design flaw of usury is the killer machine that directly and/or indirectly causes (a) start-up SDI companies to go bankrupt and (b) the high attrition rate within the SDI industry.
With some relevant re-education through the SDI University (or otherwise) to share the facts re: the lies, deceits and deceptions being foisted upon the unsuspecting public re: media, political and economic issues’ I daresay that SDI industry would blossom and the mainstream media would be forced to report the positive news.
In an article titled “The Real Truth” in the October 2012 issue of Network Marketing Business Journal, Keith B. Laggos writes: “Six families control the mainstream media. This includes all of the main television networks, including FOX, which is used to satisfy the conservatives. It also includes radios and most of the mainstream newspapers and many news magazines. Associated Press (AP) provides the majority of the edited content for all of it, except local news such as fires, crimes and sports. Reuters filters the news and provides much of the news to AP. Reuters is owned by the Rothschild family and are members of the elite group called the Bilderbergs.”
On the topic of banking, Keith B. Laggos writes: “The Central Bank or Federal Reserve is privately owned by seven families including the Rothschilds. The Central Banks of most of the countries in Europe and many around the world are owned by those seven and a couple of more, making about nine different families total. All of these families are members of the Bilderberg Group. They print money, Federal Reserve Notes, and loan it to the government who in turn pays them interest."- (which ought to be correctly called usury.)
The article “The Real Truth” by Dr. Keith B. Laggos ought to be compulsory reading for every active SDI entrepreneur and for every new enrollee in any SDI marketing program. SDI entrepreneurs need to know the facts about the media, economics and politics to have any chance of future success within the SDI industry.
I daresay, that the first SDI “home office” to launch a usuryfree time currency as an integral part of their infrastructure will have the marketing edge over all other SDI companies.
If and when an SDI company becomes the first SDI “home office” to create a “usuryfree corporate currency” within its infrastructure, that company will have a definite head start in serving people’s preferences, and others will beat a path to its door to ask: “What is your SDI company doing and how is it doing it?”
In any local community, the first SDI entrepreneur with knowledge of the “usuryfree currency” technology would have the first opportunity to pitch all local, prospective, free enterprisers. Whole new markets will be opened up by the first SDI “home office” that adopts this usuryfree technology (software) and invites other free enterprisers to connect with them.
For example, SDI entrepreneurs could accept an agreed on percentage of their rewards (commissions) in the “usuryfree corporate currency” - which could be called “SDI Wampum” or whatever. Our ongoing research indicates that to avoid interference from so-called “government authorities” we do NOT use the word “dollar” when recommending a name for any “usuryfree community currency.” Rather, a name like “wampum” is highly recommended as it has no affiliation with conventional “dollars.”
Likewise, any SDI “home office” could assure their networks of SDI entrepreneurs that the “home office” would accept a similar, agreed percentage of payment for “any and all quality products” in this same “usuryfree corporate currency” and a similar percentage would be paid out in monthly commissions to participating SDI entrepreneurs.
