Review of the Auto Recruiting Platform (ARP)

If you have been looking for a review of the Auto Recruiting Platform

and wondering whether it's for you, I want to

give my perspective on some of the pros and cons of this

remarkable business building system.

But first, a disclaimer: If you've already opted in and

confirmed your cell phone number, you are permanently

linked to the marketer whose system you opted into. In

other words, if you didn't opt into mine, I won't be able

to work with you, nor you with me. That's the way it works

- no exceptions. And even though I may miss out on a

commission or two, this policy is really the best for all.

So here is my review of the Auto Recruiting Platform (ARP).

Now for the pros of the Auto Recruiting Platform:

     1. This is a complete hands off system once you have

purchased advertising. (However, you can jump in and

encourage your potential clients to take the next step in

the process but the system will work even if you don't do

that.) You may not see the full value in this, but if

you're anything like me, you'd rather not spend every

spare waking moment at your computer working on your

business. Having time for the things you value in life is

the "beauty" of this system. So if you like the idea of

having a system do 99% of the work, then this is for you.

     2. For a minimal monthly fee, you get unlimited (yes, I

said unlimited) 2-way SMS messaging to any country in the world.

Depending on your specific provider, the provider itself

may have charges that apply, but the system itself does

not, aside from the monthly membership fee. You can even

write one message and the system will

send it out to all your prospects at one time. If you have

ever checked into the cost of a system like this, you'll

realize that this is a fantastic bargain. (In fact it would take several

decades of monthly payments to cover the actual cost of this

service for just one month.) Did I say "VALUE"?

     3. The system includes funnels that you can customize,

video software, multiple automatic funnels, the

opportunity to purchase super targeted traffic for just

about any niche, SMS messaging, a reseller license to sell the

system to bricks and mortar businesses as well as much, much more.

Although right now we are still in beta which means that

not everything is available yet, the team that is building

this system has demonstrated vision, ability and integrity

at a level I have not seen before.

     4. Duplicate-able. You've probably heard over and over

that in order to be successful in an online business you

must have a system that others can duplicate. The Auto

Recruiting Platform is the ultimate in duplicate-ability.

You do not need to spend hours on the phone or on webinars

or holding meetings, supporting and encouraging those you

recruit. The system does it automatically. You simply have

to see it to believe it.

     5. Because of that duplicate-ability and because of the

support system that is in place, anyone, absolutely anyone

can be successful using this system. That was the goal

from the beginning and will always be the goal of the

corporate team. When I heard and understood where this

system came from and the motivation of the designer, I was

completely blown away!

     6. It's still in Beta which is also a potential "con" but

it is also a "pro" because being in Beta means you can

get in cheaper now than you'll ever be able to after it moves

into Beta 2 which could be any day. You'll then be sorry you didn't

get in months ago. The system must work perfectly before moving into

the next phase and I appreciate the fact that the developers aren't

caving in to the pressure and excitement of all the resellers. They know

from experience they need to get ALL of the glitches worked out

while in Beta. So if you can be a little patient, this is the best time to

get in.

The cons of the Auto Recruiting Platform:

  1. This isn't for everyone. If you have no money to invest 
in advertising to build your business then this is

definitely not for you. Just go back to clicking on ads to

earn a pittance or filling out surveys to earn a bit of

small spending money. Or go and do any one of a multitude

of "small" things online that require no risk and no money

to get started. Anyone who is serious about earning money

online or replacing their current job with a "work-at-

home" job that replaces that job income knows that you

must have money to invest in advertising. (However, since

this is the last system you will ever need to invest in, find something

to sell, have a garage sale, if you have 2 cars, sell one so you have

that advertising budget. You'll be glad you did!)

     2. If you don't have a vision for achieving residual

income - in other words, income that keeps coming whether

you work or not, then don't even check this out. This is

the only system/business I've come across on the internet

in the 10 years I've been working at earning a decent

living from home that actually has the marketer's best

interests in mind. The auto recruiting platform is an

enabler so if you don't want to be enabled, don't even

look at it.

     3. It requires an application fee, a completed application

and a two-party approval process. If the individual

reseller or the corporate reviewer thinks this won't work

for you, unfortunately you won't be able to access this


     4. It is still in "Beta" which means that everything is

being developed, tested, tried, retested, etc. You will

need to be patient. will be worth the wait! will have to be patient. It's like having a

carrot held in front of your nose and not quite being able

to reach it. But...soon!

I could go on and on and come up with more pros as well as

a few more cons, but I think this will give you a good

idea whether the auto recruiting platform is something you

should pursue - or not.

Go here if you think it might be! Verify your cell phone, pay the

$4.95 application fee (refundable if you decide it isn't for you), complete

your application and buy your reseller license. You have to see this to

fully appreciate it.

Young Entrepreneurs - Born or Created?

What makes an entrepreneur? Even more importantly, what makes a young entrepreneur?

Take a look at this amazing story and then read my experiences below.

Thinking back on my childhood, I think I must have been born with an entrepreneurial mindset. Don't mistake that for a gift in sales or in selling. I was never good at sales and never felt I had a gift for it. Plus I was an extreme introvert and still prefer being alone to being with a group of people.

But when I was a kid, my mother made a deal with me and my siblings that if we would sell things for her, she would share the profits with us. I don't remember any of my other siblings being terribly excited about this opportunity, but if you (you know who you are) are reading this and you were excited about it, please correct me.

So even though I was painfully shy, I was willing to get up enough guts to knock on doors in the neighborhood and try to sell things. For awhile I sold greeting cards and other trinkets from a certain company. I managed to generate a few sales but nothing that would make a real difference in our budget.

During strawberry, raspberry and blackberry seasons, we kids would help pick and then sell the excess berries to our neighbors in exchange for half of the profits. We managed to sell all of the berries we wanted to and still had plenty to feed our very large family. (My mother's garden was huge!)

I'll never forget the neighbor who insisted that my blackberries weren't really blackberries. Since I was not in the habit of lying, her insistence that they were mulberries, not blackberries, really rubbed me the wrong way. I was profoundly offended by her insinuation that I was lying or trying to trick her. But as I recall, she bought some anyway - however, I wasn't too excited about returning to sell to her again.

Later when I was in high school, my mother really wanted to purchase a piece of property big enough to start a truck farm. A truck farmer in those days simply grew enough to have produce to sell to others. It wasn't a real farm with animals, just a farm for a big, big garden. However, it was my mother who had the entrepreneurial spirit, not my father and in the end the purchase wasn't made and we never became truck farmers. My brother and I had been very excited about the opportunity to help her with a huge garden, especially since it involved an opportunity for us to earn our own money. But it wasn't to be. Instead, my mother continued to work in a factory.

Later while in high school, I became a member of Junior Achievement. In conjunction with a local business, our Junior Achievement chapter designed, built and marketed a product that we were able to build with a minimum of materials, actually assemble by hand and then take out to sell to friends and neighbors. We made a "trouble light" that plugged into your car. It was a very sturdy and helpful product and we enjoyed quite a bit of success with it. However, I was astounded by the lack of attention to detail and the sloppy construction executed by some of the other members of our chapter. I think it was then I decided I never wanted to be either an employer or employee. I could already see that!

But in spite of that, I did have a few "traditional jobs" along the way, worked my way through college with scholarships and part time jobs and even took a "job" at a non-profit after I graduated. But jobs were boring to me. Maybe that's the way it is with entrepreneurs!

My husband and I later became missionaries in Brazil, eventually formed our own mission organization, helped found a church, wrote one book and published it and have trained many others to run family seminars.

Currently we have several more books in progress, run an online business, I have my own gardening business (truck farm!) where I grow pesticide-free and GMO-free produce that is highly sought after at the Farmers Markets and we now grow herb plants to sell.

I have also taught my children and my grandson how to be entrepreneurs. Or maybe they were born that way...but that's another story.

I'd be delighted to have your opinion. Do you think entrepreneurs are born or are they created/developed through training? Let me know what you've observed.

Sharon Reece

P.S. If you are an entrepreneur, we need to talk. Contact me to see if you qualify to work with me. I'm looking for highly motivated team players who aren't afraid to earn money and who aren't afraid to help others.

Is Equality Possible?

Is equality possible? Or even good? We hear a lot of talk about it these days as though equality were the most important goal of all goals. From my perspective, equality isn't possible, nor would it be good. It isn't, in my opinion, even a worthy goal to work toward.

Productive societies and prosperous economies work on completely different principles. People are more productive, more creative, more innovative and more dynamic when they are rewarded for what they accomplish. It doesn't matter to them whether their neighbor is just as productive, less productive or more productive. A basic tenant of freedom is that you have the freedom to choose how productive you want to be. Maybe you're the person who loves being a couch potato and watching TV all day. You have the freedom in our society to choose to do that. Your neighbor might choose to be industrious, turning every single moment into an opportunity to achieve, accomplish, invent, produce. I hope it appears obvious to you that these two people do not deserve "equal" rewards.

Together with the idea of equality, fairness has been thrown into the discussion. "Fair" evokes strong emotions, but guess what?...someone has to be the one to decide what is fair. Since we live in a fallen world, filled with sinful people, there is no one who is really capable of deciding what is fair. It is a pipe dream. Are you the one who is qualified to determine fairness? I certainly am not.

Life simply isn't fair. Admittedly some people have more than their share of bad fortune, while others seem to sail through life relatively unscathed by adversity. Who knows why? There isn't really a reason. And the bottom line is that no matter what life dishes out to us, we always have a choice in how we will respond. We can be like the disgruntled school kid on the playground who stomps off in a huff because others aren't playing fair. Or we can pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and try again. Fairness only exists in the imagination. It doesn't and never will exist in the real world, much as we would like it to.

I remember when I was a child, I had a particularly "difficult" neighbor. My expectation was that this neighbor child would play by the rules, not lie or cheat and that we would be able to be friends - after all, she had way more toys to play with than I did and I loved being able to touch all of those wonderful toys in her playhouse. After trying over and over and over again, I finally and unfortunately came to the conclusion that she was never going to be fair or honest and that I would have to find another friend who was more compatible with my own values and principles. I would never be equal to her in affluence or possessions but I was far richer in inner strength and Christian character. Did I want to be equal? No! In fact, I felt sorry for her rather than envious.

So getting back to equality...there is one kind of equality that is good and helpful and positive. That is having the guarantee of equal treatment in the eyes of the law. In other words, the laws of the land, in order to be "fair" and "equal" need to favor no one in particular and defend and judge everyone equally. That is the kind of equality that leads to true freedom. The idea of equality that means we all get rewarded equally, whether we produce much or little, takes us as far away from true fairness and true equality as we could possibly go.

As we swerve away from the ideas of "liberty and justice for all" and toward the ideas of "equality and fairness" for all, the basic values and principles upon which our nation was founded become more and more diluted. In fact, "equality" becomes the polar opposite of "liberty" and "fairness" the polar opposite of "justice." There was a reason for the choice of those words! And there is a reason our leaders today are using the words, "equality" and "fairness." They are using them intentionally in order to polarize and divide our nation (in my opinion). And that is exactly what they are accomplishing.

What do you think? I'd love to have you weigh in by giving your opinion and feedback. But please be civil. If "R-rated" words are used in any comments, they will not be published here. Sorry, that's my rule.

Have a great day!

Credit Repair Resources

I was surfing the internet yesterday looking for things I would feel good about recommending to my readers and followers. So many people are struggling with poor credit scores and difficulty with their finances these days so this credit repair resource caught my eye.

First of all, let me say that I am an affiliate of this program and could earn something if you decide to purchase it. But with that said, this looks like one of the better products on the market for those who would like to fix their credit score quickly. Just in scrolling through what this program offers, I discovered one tip I plan to implement in our own situation. It's something very simple but I never even thought of it.

What this program offers is credit repair software with both audio and video. In other words, it's not just another e-book to wade through filled with outdated information. You and I both know that things change so quickly on the internet and in the business, banking, finance and credit world that it's important to have up-to-date information.

This is a simple credit improvement system and along with the 8 bonuses offered with it, looks to me to be one of the best bargains around.

So do the research yourself and see if you agree with me. Here is the Credit Repair Magic link so you can check it out for yourself.

And please let me know what you think about it and what your experience has been. I'd love to hear about it.

Have a wonderful and prosperous day!

If you have a home business or own a business of your own, check out this link for something that will enable you to grow your business easily and quickly without spending all your time doing it. It was created to enable you to earn a decent income but also have time to spend with your family doing the things you really consider to be important.

30 Keys to a Long and Satisfying Marriage

My husband and I just celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary. It seems as though the years have flown by and each year has added a deeper dimension to our relationship. So I thought I would share some of the keys (best practices and principles) for a successful marriage. These keys work for any relationship and I plan to expand on some of them in future posts. I don't claim that this is an exhaustive list by any means, but there are principles and ideas that will provide you with wisdom in any relationship. More wisdom keys can be found in the Bible. Anyone who studies it diligently will find much more than I can possibly share here.

And it's important to say that even though we know these keys and principles, we don't necessarily always follow them. We're still a work in progress just like everyone else. I hope that encourages you as you read through these.

So here is our list:

30 Keys to a Long and Satisfying Marriage

  1. Put God first – worship Him together
  2. Take time every day for the 6 minute prayer* 
  3. Be quick to ask forgiveness
  4. Be quick to forgive (seventy times seven)
  5. Put the other’s interests above your own
  6. Be a servant spouse
  7. Be available
  8. Do not use sex as a weapon against your partner
  9. Spend time together – enjoying shared interests
  10. Have fun together!
  11. Desire the best for your partner even at your own expense
  12. Cultivate gratefulness toward your spouse (not taking them for granted)
  13. Let your spouse have the last word (let him/her think he/she’s right even when he/she isn’t)
  14. Don’t embarrass him/her in public or in front of your children
  15. Laugh with him/her, not at him/her
  16. Thank God for how He has used your spouse in your life
  17. Avoid the words, “always” and “never”
  18. Keep each others secrets
  19. Don’t keep secrets from each other
  20. Understand the difference between relational and topical communication*
  21. Do unto your spouse as you would have them do unto you (even if they don’t do the same)
  22. Make him/her feel important
  23. Be a good listener
  24. Swallow your pride and be the first one to say you’re sorry
  25. Edify him/her in front of everyone
  26. Make him/her believe they can do anything
  27. Trust God to change both you and your spouse because you can’t
  28. Be your spouse’s best cheerleader and supporter
  29. Take your marriage vows seriously - a covenant is serious
  30. Make sure that divorce is not part of your thinking or your vocabulary
In this day and age when anything goes and most people go by what "feels good" to them, it's more important than ever to base our actions and decisions on solid principles that have stood the test of time. It's my hope that as you read through these, you will realize that without the help of a personal God and Savior to help you, you will fail. But He is alive and well and able to meet you wherever you are and to help you no matter what your current circumstances may be.
My prayer is that you will experience a lifetime of loving that is more satisfying than you could ever imagine. Don't forget to add your comments. I welcome any suggestions, comments or questions.

Ceramic Frying Pan

I don't often post something as mundane as this on my blog, but I must. Otherwise you will miss out on something that is so awesome and delightful and that makes cooking a breeze. It is so sweet I similar can't keep my mouth shut.

A package came in the mail the other day. I was suspicious since I hadn't ordered it and I wasn't expecting a package. It was something my gadget loving husband had ordered. When he opened the package and pulled out a "BRIGHT GREEN" frying pan, I almost fell over. Oh no, I thought, he's really gone off the deep end this time.

BUT...several omelets and fried eggs later, I'm singing a different tune. This amazing ceramic frying pan is my new best friend in the kitchen. My daughter actually tried it out first and declared, "I want one!" Here is a link in case you want to check it out: Ceramic Frying Pan

My husband had come home with a ceramic paring knife a couple of months ago and although I thought that was another of his "gadget" crazes, it turns out that I love my ceramic paring knife and it's the one I reach for most often. Mine looks kind of like these but I only got one.

Anyway, the moral of the story is let your husband bring you gifts even if they are gadgets instead of flowers. You might be very pleasantly surprised!

A New kind of Income Model…A Paradigm Shift

There is a new "kid" on the block that is a response to the rise in consumer information products and social media consumption/usage. Here are some of the implications for 2013.

  1. The affiliate product launch model will give way to a more personal relationship-based model in 2013.
  2. There is an increase in demand for done-for-you services/products.
  3. Instead of new social media platforms, there will be an explosion of offerings in closely related markets (think Google+ Hangouts).
  4. Free-traffic wizards will feel a slight sting as paid traffic increasingly becomes more of a reality. 
  5. Video marketing will become even more popular than it already is. 
The Implications I promised:

If you speak to individuals, such as yourself, who were involved in a particular movement— whether it be the super affiliate market of today, civil rights of the 60's, or the race to the moon- they'll tell you that it was hard to see exactly how important the movement was when they were on the verge of the new dawn…

If 2013 calls for building personal relationships with clients and partners, it sweeps open the door for you to gain brand traction in new social and economic circles.
This brand traction will bring about short and long-term sustainability in the shifting market!
Old and New Clients will be willing to put their dollars behind their demand for these premium services and products. And for good reason— after all, they are seeking the best. It's up to you to set the standard.
Marketers are being presented with an exciting opportunity in 2013 to "design" a new product launch market. Find out how by going to this link.
This is a powerful program that will help you "re-fire" your brand in a dynamic way to gain/maintain position continuity

This new program is designed to energize and expand an already healthy revenue portfolio by:

  • Adding an additional (significant) income stream to your portfolio
  • Enhancing client/partner acquisition and/or adding a new campaign
  • Incorporating the latest and greatest web tools and enhancing audience reach
  • Getting and/or keeping partners/clients excited about you and your brand
  • Enhancing synergistic relationships between you and your partners In addition, it provides:
  • An incentive cycle to encourage purchase upgrades
  • A paradigm shift for those who want to improve revenue health
  • Early adoption long-term benefits and exciting implications
  • A dynamic social platform for business professionals

    In plain English, you'll create sustainability for your brand, gain another significant income model and have fun doing it. Become an early market leader and lead on!

My sincere thanks for your time and attention.

CPA System

I am very excited about this new system I just came across and want to share it with you. Learn how to earn from CPA offers. If you don't know what CPA stands for, it means Cost Per Action. There are many companies who offer cash in exchange for leads who sign up to review or use their products. And CPA has been around for a long time. I've occasionally taken advantage of some of these offers and you probably have, too.

But just a couple of days ago (at this writing on Jan 9, 2013) a group of very smart marketers launched a system that is either free* or almost free* to get started. What is unique is the fact that they have set up a system that will work for anyone who is willing to follow it. If you follow it, you will earn money without spending a fortune to get some guru secrets, pay for a monthly website, training, etc. ALL the training is completely free! And there is a ton of it.

There are step by step tutorials showing you how to set up your system, where to advertise and even pre-written ads and e-mails you can use. All of this training is applicable to anything you might want to do to earn online.

Bar none, this is the most complete training system I've ever seen, as well as one of the easiest ways to get started earning money online if you don't have extra cash to invest initially.

So be sure you check it out. Here is the link to get started on your own online business.

BTW, if you want to earn even more, there are some great options to add on that will generate residual income for you.

Enjoy! Here's the link again: Yes, I want to get started earning money online!
