I believe in giving back. And best way for to give back in this industry is by helping other achieve their goals as I have been helped in achieving mine.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket

Mar 31st 2011 at 6:25 AM

How many time have you heard how a company faild to meet its obligation to the distributors? Just the other day me and an associate, who are in the same business, was talking about the possibilities of our companie going under. Not that there are signs of such a thing a happening but if anyone pays any attention to business,one know that there is always the possibility of some thing changing.

Who expected AT&T to buy Tmobile beside those who had the inside track? I didn't. In fact I read that Tmobile had approached Sprint few days earlier before AT&T announced it was going to buy Tmobile for $39 billion dollars. A few months a go Prepaid Legal was bought by an investment firm, and Prepaid Legal is no longer a publicly traded company. That can change everything for prepaid. We will have to see.

The point here is never put all your eggs in one basket as a marketer. I'm not suggesting that you breach the non-competition clause in the agreement that you have signed. Don't provide a service that would be in competition to what you are already providing but provide something else in addition your primary business. You just never know when things are going to change.
