MY EXTRACT FROM FORBES ARTICLE FOR YOU TO USE
By Robert Laura who is a retirement activist that contributes research articles to the well respected Forbes Magazine. Robert is a good researcher and writer. This page is your Editors short summary of some of the great material Robert and Forbes used. See the link below to Forbes for the complete article.
The MLM Watchdog always asks people searching for income boosters or a life style change: Do you like helping people?? Are you interested in finding ways to turn a vocation (job) passion, hobby, or personal desire into extra money on a part time (or full)… Like Robert Laura (Writer for Forbes) do they see the importance of planning for the non-financial aspects of retirement? Which can mean:
A. Replacing a work identity, including friends, and your free time from the job many times includes spare time recreation. Many times folks are respected by friends away from the job!
B. staying relevant and connected, meaning you have cohorts and friends who appreciate you
C. Sometimes a job is beneficial by keeping mentally your brain active and interacting with cohorts.
D. Staying physically fit meaning that you are out and about walking, talking and moving
BUT MANY TIMES A JOB IS BAD OR DESTRUCTIVE ROBERT SAYS
Often (too many times) jobs are not financially or mentally satisfying. In that case Robert says this is something multi-level marketing - Network marketing companies are poised to help men and women to capitalize in situations like too little $$ or Respect. As a result, the industry could soon experience larger than life growth, spurred by baby boomers looking to adjust their retirement feelings and plans.
MLM – NETWORK MARKETING programs are attractive to most people because it offers low barriers to entrepreneurship. In general the new Distributor often gets free training, support, and encouragement along the way to getting started. Retirees begin to realize that MLM-Network Marketing is the Best Channel to use to prosper in retirement.

ROD COOK'S CONTACT INFORMATION AT THE END OF THIS FUNDRAISING ARTICLE
Rod Cook The Most Trusted Name In Network Marketing
INVESTORS LOOKING TO INVEST IN A SOLID MONTHLY CHECK?
NO CALLING OR SELLING
How? Investing in MLM product sales. In general MLM Companies have higher quality nutritional products than those sold in stores. If you saw ABC's 20/20 investigation that sure hit home for a bunch of store sold nutritional products. Some MLM Companies have very excellent products that command very high reorder rates. In our MLM Watchdog intelligence searches we watch for high reorder rates by consumer end user customers. Why? They are not required to pay Autoship monthly to collect commissions so they are an uncontaminated source for our research and application of investor funds for growth. We use a BDC (business development corporation) to fund distributors who are a small businesses. This is a perfect for the BDC which was created to help small entrepreneurs. Our group of builders build and MLM Downline for you and promotes selling the product to end consumers. This is legal and the law both state and federal levels like it when there are sales to end consumers.
This new model for MLM Investors is investing money into MLM Downlines of good MLM Companies with a target product with a high reorder rate. Investors are put into the upline of an MLM Distributor Genealogy. Generally the ROI for investors doing this sure knocks the heck out of the stock market. Specific care and due diligence are taken focused on outstanding products that have a high automatic re-order by Customers who are end consumers. The gold standard is a product that 100 Customers order (who do not belong to the compensation pay plan) on Autoship. After one year is the continuous auto order retention rate 80% or over for these end consumer customers?
This is an area that only Rod Cook the MLM Watchdog can safely explore because of numerous contacts with honest MLM Distributors who will not lie and hype about their company and products. In addition corporate for these companies will invite the MLM Watchdog to come investigate their in house customer sales statistics by throwing open their books to the MLM Watchdog.

Review: Once again the new model for MLM Investors is investing money into MLM Downlines of good MLM Companies with an absolutely great target product with a high reorder rate. Investors are put into the upline of an MLM Distributor Genealogy so that monthly sales commissions are paid automatically. Generally the ROI for investors doing this sure knocks the heck out of the stock market. Specific care and due diligence are taken focused on outstanding products that have a high automatic re-order by Customers who are end consumers. The gold standard is a product that 100 Customers order (who do not belong to the compensation pay plan) on Autoship. After one year is the continuous auto order retention rate 80% or over for these end consumer customers? This is an area that only the MLM Watchdog can safely explore because of numerous contacts with honest MLM Distributors who will not lie and hype about their company and products. In addition corporate for these companies will invite the MLM Watchdog to come investigate their in house statistics by throwing open their books to the MLM Watchdog. On top of that I subscribe to ConsumerLab.com and do frequent searches on products The www.mlmwatchdog.com has about 300 reporters that feed us information on MLM Companies. If the FDA puts out a safety alert or recall on an MLM Product the MLM Watchdog knows about it within 24 hours. If the National Institute of Health puts up a negative report on a nutritional product on Pub Med Rod Cook will get the information with a week! Warning Investors! Other groups will try to immulate this model. It seems every MLM Distributor out there thinks that their product will raise the dead. They will lie to you wheedle and beg and promise you a million dollar income in 60 days. It is a tragedy for the MLM Industry that so much hype and hysteria can come from basic distributors with no track record. Even the ones that have a good track record will tell you their sawdust based product will stop cancer and raise the dead. Send a check for $300 and we will get on the phone and I will give you a quick appraisal of the MLM Company you are getting hustled into.

SECTION 2 MLM - NETWORK MARKETING INVESTOR PRIVATE QUESTIONS
SECTION 3 MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
EXAMPLE EIRO - THIS MLM COMPANY SHUTDOWN DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN
The sad thing is they never even asked us for an MLM Corporate Evaluation!
A phone call (or using the inquiry box below) could have prevented this and left the distributors with a commission source and the Owners a chance to get their equity back by doing a MERGER or to be ACQUIRED by a larger company. I feel sorry for both the Eiro owners and distributors. Preventing these tragedies is the reason we started doing Mergers and Acquistions (M&A) work.
A WATCHDOG PASSION; HELPING DISTRESSED MLM COMPANIES
The MLM WatchDog for years has been helping MLM companies by arranging marriages (most commonly called mergers/acquisitions) with other companies. We have also bought, sold and brokered MLM Downlines.
SO WE ARE MOVING FORWARD TO MAKE MERGERS EASIER:
1. Mergers/Acquisitions of smaller MLM companies with larger MLM companies. On some rare occasions, we have done mergers of larger MLM companies with smaller MLM companies and vice-versa. We know that this may sound strange but with over 20 years of arranging marriages/mergers and acquisitions, we have come to expect anything.
2. Another thing that we do is give an option to companies that have not grown enough to secure money to fix things that may have gone wrong and allow survival to turn into growth. Software, compensation plan, and sagging leadership are just some examples that we have obtained funding for to fix the problems. This is not as common as mergers/marriages and acquisitions, but it is doable.
ONE THING ABOUT US THAT STANDS OUT! The first thing that America’s MLM Consultants, Inc. does is to get our non-disclosure secrecy documents to you. We realize that confidentiality will be vital to our relationship and working environment.
TRUST IS THE SECOND IMPORTANT THING IN DEALING WITH MLM COMPANY MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS, OR MONEY RAISES
Rod Cook, Founder and President of America’s MLM Consultants, Inc. is one the most trusted people in MLM. No matter what the business dealing is, whether it is a money raise, merger or acquisition, he is going to be fair and honest to all parties involved. His MLM Corporate evaluations are the best to be haD. Owners maintain downlines with greater growth potential for income to celebrate their leadership ability that was crushed by financial shortcomings. Owners are celebrated and appreciate
1.Finder’s fees to persons who discover distressed or sagging MLM companies that are looking for an MLM merger, acquisition or financial fund raising will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
2. Owners gain opportunity for leveraged income by selling rights to products/services to be distributed to a larger audience. This often leads to a long-term residual from product sales to greater masses of people
3. Distributors are treated fairly; financial loss is minimized or eliminated. Instantaneously financial growth is enhanced and favorite products and/or services are retained.
LET’S TALK MARRIAGE - MERGER – ACQUISITON - A FUND RAISE
1. Acquisition – Larger stable company acquires smaller company with an inadequate growth or cash flow for any number of reasons. Acquisitions are common in this era of recession, causing declining sales even if distributorships are growing. Generally, in an acquisition, the company being acquired does not have its name used in ongoing operations by the acquiring company. Downline is therefore maintained.
2. Funded Proposal – Totally separate from an acquisition or merger. One of the most common reasons is a new company getting bad MLM software. They struggle to grow but do not have the cash flow to get good software. This requires an MLM business plan, for which we can provide a template. We look for funding from our funding sources that understand the MLM industry, to include mergers, marriages, acquisitions and funded proposals.
3. Leveraged Income – Income to company founders for bringing a viable product/service to the table. Cash flow is increased to founder because the product/service is introduced to a larger group of MLM distributors and more purchases are made. This can occur in either an acquisition or merger.
4. Merger – Larger company merges with a smaller company that has cash flow or growth problems. The smaller MLM company’s name can be maintained. Downline is also maintained. Preferably, a leveraged income can be established during the merger as part of our target contract. A merger is also a face-saving device for the owners and top leaders. A merger is a financial booster if done correctly under our auspices. We consider a merger as one of the most viable instruments in the MLM market place.
A SHORT EDITORIAL ON MLM MERGERS
There is no shame in an MLM merger. There is no way to tell that a merger has taken place because of sagging financials. The MLM world was rocked in the summer of 2010 when the world’s largest MLM, Avon, merged with Silpada Silver, a jewelry party plan. The total amount of this merger? $650 million dollars that Avon (a ten billion-dollar-a year MLM company) paid the owners of Silpada, a 13-year-old party plan company! Silpada was not a distressed MLM company. It is simply about two companies making a good business decision.
