The Coffee Connection
Do you drink coffee? Do you know a lot of people who drink coffee?
Here are some interesting facts to show you just how many people drink coffee.
Coffee is the world’s second most popular drink after water with over 400 billion cups consumed each year.
52% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee every morning, and on top of that, 30% of the population drinks coffee occasionally, meaning that over 80% of Americans consume approximately 3.1 cups per day on average, with the cup size being 9 ounces
Coffee is the world’s second most traded commodity, taking a back seat only to petroleum, with the coffee market earning nearly 60 billion dollars annually.
Coffee is grown in over 53 countries worldwide, all of them located near the equator and most of the world’s coffee is grown by small-scale coffee farming families.
No coffee is grown in the United States or its territories except in Hawaii and Puerto Rico
Nearly 7 million tons of green coffee beans are produced each year worldwide, and the majority of those are hand-picked beans. Coffee farmers earn as little as 4 cents per pound to just over 12 cents if it is gourmet. The fair trade movement is aimed at redistributing profits so that these farmers receive a decent wage for their hard work.
How would you like to get paid to have your friends over for coffee? How would you like to drink coffee and know that the farmer who picked the coffee beans was getting paid fairly for his labor? How would you like to know that each time you purchased your coffee 5% of the sale went to feed hungry children right here in the usa.
Everyone Loves Candles
I market candles for people who want to burn candles, but they don’t like the black soot and they want candles that last a long time and smell good the whole time they burn.
Like with me ~ I have been crazy about candles and burned them regularly in my home for as long as I can remember. I really like the ambiance they create and the scent, but what I didn’t realize was that burning just 2 paraffin candles in my home at the same time was toxic to my children. I tried a bees wax candle and it was very messy and the only scent was a beeswax scent. I tried a bayberry candle, which smelled good, but it was still messy to burn. I still wanted to find a candle that was healthy, smelled good and didn’t make a mess.
The day I burned a soy candle, after just one burn, I noticed that the candle not only burned much cleaner and longer, but the delicious scent filled the entire room.
It feels so good to know that I can enjoy my candles without putting my children in danger.
Do you know anyone who might want to burn candles like that?
Is this one of those pyramid things?
Absolutely. If you think about it, most things are. Your school system, the government, the military, a family, the corporate structure… it's a structure that works.
Is this legal?
Yes. We realize that there are many companies out there doing illegal things and calling it an opportunity. Most of them will not give you a phone number where you can talk to a real person. They will also ask you to pay money to join, but there is no real product. For example… getting paid to stuff envelopes. When you send for the information, they tell you how to run the exact same ad that you replied to and then send the exact same letter that they sent to you to anyone who responds. This is not legal and it is a SCAM. Our company has real products, real people and a real business venture.
Do I only make money if I come in at the top or in the beginning?
This is what most people think, but we have people in our company who came in at the very beginning and there are others who came in later who are making more than them.
How can I find out more about this company?
Fill out the form to the right and a real person will contact you right away.
Are you going to ask for money?
This is not a job offer, this is a chance to invest in a business venture. So yes, there is an investment cost. However, unlike the cost to start a McDonalds for anywhere between 500,000 and over a million dollars, we offer you a business for less than $1000… much less!
How much can I make with this company?
That is a question we cannot answer without talking to you. There are too many variables. It will depend on how much time you have to invest in your business, how coachable you are and many other things. Let's talk so we can help you figure out how much cashflow you can create!
I've never done anything like this before, will I be good at it?
Experience does not matter. I have met so many people who are exactly like you who created huge cash flow for themselves because they did what they needed to do. You can make excuses, or you can make money, but you can't make BOTH.
