Our United Goals 06/21/2011
Goal #1 ~ TO UNITE AND MAKE MONEY TOGETHER. The primary goal of the group is to unite together in at least one common money maker so that we can help each other to have more income coming in. This is what makes this group different from most ~ although we all may have many different businesses that we're involved in (our primary businesses) we have united in at least one together. We are working TOGETHER to help everyone have income coming in on a monthly basis ~ for some moms this may be their only one, and for others, it may be in addition to what they're already making.
Goal #2 ~ ONCE WE HAVE AN EXTRA INCOME COMING IN FROM UNITING, TO THEN BE ABLE TO SUPPORT THE PRIMARY BUSINESSES OF THE GROUP'S MEMBERS. The secondary goal of the group is to help other moms in the group, whenever possible, by buying products/services that we may need or want, from moms in the group, who have united and are working together as one big team! We will have extra income coming in and we can, in turn, "recycle" our dollars within the group:)
The Concept - what we'd like to accomplish 06/16/2011
I first want to welcome everyone to this new group! We are all anticipating positive, and exciting things happening here! Below, you'll find the first post that went out on Cafemom, calling for all moms to UNITE and seeing who would respond. Many of you did respond and in a very unison way - we found out that there are many moms on here who are thinking and feeling the same way about uniting together for the good of us all! I wanted to reprint this here in case you were invited here by a friend and didn't see this post in one of your other groups. It briefly explains the concept behind how this group started.
I hope you join us!
Hi Ladies ~ this is something that I have often thought about: what would it look like if ALL moms on CM who already had businesses, and/or those who need to make additional money from home would team up together in a passive income business (es)?!? I'm thinking it would do a couple of things:
a. Help many, many moms who are struggling to be able to meet their family's needs on a monthly basis without taking away a lot of time from our #1 task of simply being a mom and doing our "mom" thing.
b. It would help those moms who already have businesses, because other moms on here will now have additional income to either buy our products and services and even join your businesses if they so desire (i.e. if I had extra money right now I'd be looking to buy some Pampered Chef and Tupperware products, I'd like to get back in Melaleuca, Mary kay, a natural bath and body company, and order health and wellnessproducts, and more! I know that's a lot, but I would rather buy as many products that I need from direct sales companies that give back to women and families in general ~ WalMart isn't going to give me a discount or pay me for referring people to them:) So, we could support and patronize team-members first, before going outside the team.
I have thought about ways that may work to make this possible, but want to see if there are other moms on here who see the positives in this and would like to collaborate on ideas to get the ball rolling. Some of my thoughts are; it would need to be something that requires little money and time for moms to get involved ~ so that those moms who have other businesses can sort of "set-it and forget-it". Meaning you join, do a little work, and reap the benefits on an ongoing basis. It would need to be a model that facilitates team-growth automatically, and it would definitely need to be affordable for the masses.
So, I'm looking for moms who would like to be involved in giving input and planning to come up with ideas. Remember, the goal is not to promote what we're doing, but to come up with a plan that best meets our need of building a passive, residual income for all moms who desire it on here. I have some businesses that I think may fit-the-bill, but I would be overjoyed to come across others that fit even better (maybe cost less, pay better,etc.) Who cares if you are in postition #1, 10, 20 or 100+ because when you have hundreds, if not thousands of moms uniting - WE WILL ALL WIN and get the extra income we need!
Thanks for taking the time to read and consider this. I'm looking forward to a promising and positive outcome for many moms on here who could really use help ~ blessings, Monica
