Using a Funded Proposal to Build Your Business

What is a Funded Proposal?

A Funded Proposal or Feeder Program is simply completing an initial sale to your prospect before you offer them your main product. Normally this is done by selling a low cost information product or low cost introductory product or service.

Besides providing a low cost and effective way to build your business, each of the systems I’ve been using also provide excellent training inside and all you have to do to succeed is actually follow it!  Whether experienced Internet marketer or newbie, if you’re wanting to maximize your effectiveness on-line, you should be using a Funded Proposal system.

Why I've Started Coin Collecting as a Hobby

Most people engage in different activities that they consider hobbies. When people consider a particular activity as a hobby, it means they find that activity pleasurable, and in this case I find it enjoyable to collect silver coins.

In my particular case, the monetary value of the coins is also important. As such, it might also be considered an investment.

History tells us that the main reason other generations collected coins was the value that coins would someday attain. The ancient form of coin collecting was even labeled a hobby “fit for the kings” because ancient coins were so valuable that only the kings were capable of collecting them.

Today’s coin collection is no longer limited to the “kings” or the affluent. Anyone can now consider coin collecting as his or her hobby. The popularity of coin collecting continues to flourish as more and more people collect coins. That is why it is now known as the “King of Hobbies”.

Why Such Popularity
One of the many reasons coin collecting is considered by many as one of the most popular hobbies in the world is based on its ease of access.

When somebody wants to start coin collecting, he can start any time, anywhere. Some people start coin collecting with the coins that they have in their pockets. This phase of coin collecting is known as the “accumulator” stage, where collectors try to accumulate as many coins as they can often using their “pocket change”. I sorta started this way by collecting state quarters.

What is it with these quarters that millions of people seem to go “gaga” about? Primarily, doing it is easy as these quarters can be found almost anywhere and the collectible coins do not cost much more than face value. Nearly all of my state quarters were obtained as change from purchases, and a few by purchasing rolls of quarters.

At first, the quarters I collected were placed inside a large glass jar. That was perfectly fine for a while until I got a little more serious and purchased some coin storage folders from a local coin shop.

The sequence of how the state quarters are minted is based on the order of the states. Basic US history tells us that Delaware was the first state; therefore, this was the first quarter minted. For the sequence of the other states, check the schedule from 1999 to the 2008 of the US Mint.

As I learned more about the history of coins and in particular the history of money, my new hobby became more expensive. This is because I chose to collect “real money” in the form of silver coins. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Silver money

Collecting silver coins as hobby is a pleasurable activity that any person can use to create a feeling of gratification, and is a smart way to accumulate money that has true value.

Corporate Slavery

As I learned about network marketing, business in general, and concentrated on my goals and dreams, I searched the Scriptures for some insight.

Generally speaking, I loved most of the jobs I had. I enjoyed the work and I enjoyed the people I worked with. However, what gnawed at my spirit was that I was NOT in control of my time or my future.

As I searched the Bible for some insight into my growing uneasiness, one interesting thing I found (or didn’t find), was any references to an employee-employer relationship. What I did find is only a slave-master relationship.

I discovered not much has changed in our working relationships over the past several thousand years – except perhaps some of the words we use to describe our relationships. It’s only perhaps in the last 100 years or so that our system of employment has even developed as we know it.

For centuries before, most people were either a master, slave or self-employed.

It’s my belief that the current so-called employment situation in our world today is closest to a slave-master relationship and one of the greatest barriers many people have in our culture is that they feel as though they are slaves to their circumstances. In other words, they DO NOT control their lives, but their lives are controlled by others and by their circumstances. It’s what I call Corporate Slavery.

Perhaps you feel that way. I know I did for many years.

I do not believe it has to be that way!

Now, for people who want to remain a slave or employee – that’s okay, but the apostle Paul has encouraged me to gain my freedom (1 Cor. 7:21). I believe network marketing has provided a vehicle to do that – and I praise God daily for the opportunity.

As we exert control over our own lives and begin to take responsibility for our own actions, we can be freed from the bonds of slavery in whatever form it manifests in our lives.

My passion is to help people to be blessed in the same way I am or as Zig Ziglar said, “To be the difference maker in the personal, family, and professional lives of enough people to make a positive difference in the world.”

As much as I would like to help everyone, I’ve learned I can only help those people who TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for their own lives, place a HIGH VALUE on good financial stewardship, and who are willing to LEARN HOW TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS!
