75 Green Businesses – Book Review

I just finished reading “75 Green Businesses you can start to make money and make a difference” by Glenn Croston. As a green entrepreneur myself, I read most books that come out on the topic of green jobs and green careers. In my opinion, this book is among the best books written on this subject.

The title of the book is a little misleading, there are 75 jobs that the author dives into but not 75 different businesses. Anyway, the book is a very useful guide on how to break into the green collar industry. There is a great variety of positions covered, from a wind turbine installer to an owner of a green restaurant.

What I like best about the book is the wonderful real life examples. This was helpful to me because it allowed me to see that all of these opportunities are indeed possible. I though the book was very motivating and inspirational. After I read it, my mind was racing as I was trying to think about what green business venture I should jump into. The book also has an extensive resource section at the end and shows the reader where they can find additional information in pursuit of their green careers. The author did leave out one important career path, a green consultant, which is what I do.

In closing, I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to get a green job or if you are looking to advance in the green collar industry. I also recommend this book to any entrepreneur who is looking to capitalize on the next big thing.

Plannet Marketing Review – Is This Travel Company The Real Deal?

So lately, I’ve been getting a few messages about a new Travel-based Network Marketing company called Plannet Marketing. And chances are if you’re reading this, you’re probably thinking about joining and you’re doing some last minute research on the company. If that’s the case, then look no further. In this Plannet Marketing Review, I’ll cover all the essential details you’ll need before you join. With that said, I do want to disclose that I am not a Plannet Marketing distributor. In all honesty, it really doesn’t matter to me one way or the other if you join so you know you’ll be getting a truly unbiased review.

Who Is Plannet Marketing?

Plannet Marketing is a company that sells travel through a Network Marketing business model. The company is based out of Atlanta, Georgia and as of this writing Plannet Marketing is just over 6 months old. The company was founded by Donald Bradley, formerly of YTB and Paycation Travel. Bradley brings with him 20 years of experience in Network Marketing. Before starting Plannet Marketing, Bradley was the Master Distributor and #1 Income Earner in Paycation Travel. He literally had everyone in Paycation in his downline and was responsible for bringing in the company’s top leadership group. I’m not sure what happened, but around the time Craig Jerabeck and Barry Donalson left 5linx and joined Paycation was the same time Bradley decided to leave. Maybe he didn’t feel good about those guys joining and being sponsored by the company when he was the Master Distributor. Who knows? And who really cares? Regardless of the reason, it looks like Bradley was willing to walk away from everything he built to start from scratch again. Overall, the company looks pretty solid. And while it’s too early to tell if they’ll even be around for the long haul because they’re only a few months old, Bradley and the other members of the Corporate team bring a ton of experience in Network Marketing and Travel, which is a good thing.

How Do You Make Money With Plannet Marketing?

The actual compensation plan provides several ways for distributors to get paid. But the crown jewel of the compensation plan is the 3X9 Matrix. With a Matrix model, it’s critical that you get a spot early on if you want to capitalize on spillover. If you’re positioned underneath a strong builder, you can benefit from their efforts as they place people under you while they’re filling up their Matrix. With a fully filled 3X9 Matrix, you’ll have 29,523 distributors underneath you. If they’re all active and you get $4 monthly from each distributor, you can make up to $118,092 monthly. In addition to your Matrix pay, you can also earn a 10% Match on the Matrix pay of your personally sponsored distributors.

In addition to the Matrix, the company provides monthly bonuses to Directors. Here’s a simple breakdown of how the Director bonuses work:

1 Star Director – 100 active distributors – $500/month

2 Star Director – 300 active distributors – $1,000/month

3 Star Director – 500 active distributors – $2,000/month

4 Star Director – 1,500 active distributors – $5,000/month

5 Star Director – 4,000 active distributors – $10,000/month

6 Star Director – 10,000 active distributors – $16,000/month

7 Star Director – 25,000 active distributors – $30,000/month

8 Star Director – 50,000 active distributors – $50,000/month

9 Star Director – 100,000 active distributors – $100,000/month

Between the Matrix Pay, the 10% Match on your personals and the Director Bonuses, it’s pretty clear that there’s plenty of money on the back end. If you’re a strong team builder and you have a knack for creating good culture, Plannet Marketing might be a very lucrative opportunity for you.

Should You Join Plannet Marketing?

Well, only you can truly answer that. The company certainly looks solid. Travel is a very marketable service that’s easy to talk about. And the compensation plan is generous and lucrative. All those things together should guarantee success, right? Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. At the end of the day, it is your ability to sponsor people into your business on a consistent basis that will lead to your success. This is why I recommend that you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can position yourself in front of prospects that are already looking for what you’re offering, you’ll have no problem getting leads online. And if you have an abundance of quality leads, there’s no telling how successful you can be.

Conklin Review – How to Make Money With Conklin Company

In this Conklin review, I would like to offer some advice to help those who are struggling in their Conklin business, and for those who are currently researching Conklin to decide if the business opportunity that they offer is best suited for them.

The Conklin Company is a multi-level marketing (MLM) business opportunity that markets a vast selection of products across many different niche markets and industries.

The products that you can expect to see from Conklin will be in relation to crop management, animal supplements, home cleaning products, health and wellness products, lawn care, roofing systems, sealants and coatings, and vehicle products. As you can see, Conklin offers many products for a multitude of different customers.

For the Conklin Independent Business Owner, having a wide selection of different products that can be sold across a wide demographic can seem to be a great advantage in your business. The truth is, you can quickly get in way over your head. The Conklin rookie who is just starting out will most likely feel lost if they do not focus on a handful of products to offer to a particular niche market. They might end up selling a roofing product to one customer, a household cleaner to another, and will really never have the time to focus and build their business around one particular product. They may achieve little amounts of success selling multiple products, but will never become a huge success in any one given product.

If you desire tremendous success in your Conklin business, you will need to step back and decide what is the niche market of products that you are passionate about. Make your decision, and begin focusing on that one area. This will allow you to become that go to person, and product expert that customers can rely on and return to for repeat orders.
