“Xocai Utah” Ambassador Adam Green (Orem) Is Shocked by the News Reports Last Week that, “Blyth Tumbles After 2Q Loss” (finance.yahoo.com) and Fears for the Future of Current ViSalus Distributor “Jared Overton” (Provo)

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/blyth-inc-reports-2nd-quarter-120000245.html
Today reported sales and earnings for the second quarter of 2013.  Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2013 decreased approximately 32% to $211.7 million from $309.5 million for the comparable prior year period, primarily due to lower sales at ViSalus and, to a lesser extent, at PartyLite, Blyth’s operating profit would have been $27.7 million last year versus $1.2 million this year.  Mr. Goergen added, “We are experiencing the cost impact of investments made in ViSalus over the last twelve months combined with the effects of a decline in the number of North American Promoters. 

Blyth’s operating profit for the second quarter was $1.2 million this year versus $17.8 million last year, largely driven by the decline in sales.  Net Loss Attributable to Blyth, Inc. was $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to earnings of $8.0 million in the comparable prior year period.  Net Loss Attributable to Blyth, Inc. Common Stockholders was $3.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013
Even with … On May 10, 2013, the Company completed the sale of $50 million aggregate principal amount of 6.0% Senior Notes

The Body By Vi 90-Day Challenge, announced second quarter 2013 sales of $101.5 million, a 3% sequential decrease from first quarter 2013 sales of $104.3 million.  Prior year second quarter sales were $190.4 million. 

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/blyth-tumbles-2q-loss-cut-160400904.html
About Face!  For the year, Blyth now expects earnings of 75 cents to 90 cents per share. Its prior guidance called for earnings of $1.30 to $1.45 per share. The company said that the revised outlook is mostly due to a decline in ViSalus’ sales expectations.

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/08/02/why-blyth-shares-plunged-today.aspx
What: Shares of direct-to-consumer marketing company Blyth (NYSE: BTH  ) dropped as much as 23% today after the company reported earnings.  Revenue plunged 32% in the second quarter to $211.7 million and the company lost $3.2 million, or $0.20 per share. To make matters worse, management lowered full-year earnings guidance to $0.75 to $0.90 from a previous range of $1.30 to $1.45. 

Now what: The lowered full-year guidance tells you all you need to know about where Blyth’s business is headed right now. The ViSalus business is really struggling and there doesn’t appear to be a turnaround in sight. I’d stay away from this stock given the earnings trajectory right now.

Blyth lost money in its second quarter on weak sales and direct sales company slashed its full-year earnings outlook, sending shares tumbling nearly 23 percent to a multiyear low Friday.  Stripping out dividends paid to ViSalus stakeholders in excess of income earned, Blyth Inc. lost 8 cents per share. 

The company lost $3.2 million, or 20 cents per share, for the period ended June 30. Revenue for the Greenwich, Conn., company fell 32 percent to $211.7 million from $309.5 million, mostly due to a 47 percent sales decline at its ViSalus business.  For the year, Blyth now expects earnings of 75 cents to 90 cents per share. Its prior guidance called for earnings of $1.30 to $1.45 per share. The company said that the revised outlook is mostly due to a decline in ViSalus’ sales expectations.  Blyth’s stock slid $3.21, or 22.6 percent, to $10.99 in midday trading. The shares fell to $10.93 earlier

In the Health & Wellness segment, consisting of ViSalus, second quarter net sales decreased 47% to $101.5 million versus $190.4 million for the same period last year, largely reflecting the effects of reductions in Promoter counts in North America.  At the end of the second quarter, qualified independent North American Promoters (50% drop) totaled 57,000 versus more than 114,000 Promoters at the end of the prior year’s second quarter.

MXI Corp Ambassador Adam Paul Green of Utah is Recognized as a Top 100 MLM Trainer and Motivator in Network Marketing for His Revolutionary Social Med

Adam Paul Green Xocai Healthy ChocolateBusinessForHome.org just announced the results of its annual poll “Who are the Top MLM Networkers” for 2013.  From May to June 2013, the Poll registered nominations of 170 top leaders in Network Marketing and Direct Sales but only published the Top 100, as per is customary.  Xocai Ambassador Adam Paul Green was the only MXI Corp leader to win top honors on the Top 100 list and came in at a commendable 76th place on the Top 100 Listing.

About Top Leadership Trainers Poll from BFH.org:  Business For Home organized the Top MLM Networker for 2013 – Poll.  Only those who have made over a million dollars in MLM were considered and all field leaders have a proven track record.  According to many, Leadership has been described as “a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task.”  Other in-depth definitions of leadership have also emerged. 

Leadership is “organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal.”  The leader may or may not have any formal authority.  Studies of leadership have produced theories involving traits, situational interaction, function, behavior, power, vision and values, charisma, and intelligence, among others. Somebody whom people follow: somebody who guides or directs others.

About BusinessForHome.org:  Never rely on 1 Fixed Income Stream, if that one goes down you have a problem….. It might happen overnight that you got fired, get sick, or you are sick of the job….  You will find in Direct Selling a great solution!  Direct Selling offers you the possibility to create Part-time or Full-Time income streams. It makes you stronger: Financially, from a Personal Development Perspective and it is Fun!  The Average Top Earner in Direct Selling makes Approx. $ 20.000 + a Month. That’s $ 240.000 a year….There Are Thousands of Top Earners Already.

Most Direct Selling companies has double digit growth… You have no Employees to Hire and Low costs because it is a Home Based Business.  About 50% of our visitors are from the USA and Canada. The other part from 150+ countries. Top countries are Russia, the UK, Brazil, Malaysia, Ukraine, Spain. Far more important: The majority is MLM professional!

The Business For Home.org mission:

  1. Demystifying Direct Selling through Facts and Figures
  2. Report estimated Direct Selling distributor earnings industry wide
  3. Cover Direct Selling News

Direct selling is the sale of a consumer product or service, person-to-person, away from a fixed retail location, marketed through independent sales representatives who are sometimes also referred to as consultants, distributors or other titles. Direct sellers are not employees of the company. They are independent contractors who market and sell the products or services of a company in return for a commission on those sales.  Orders are usually placed in person or via the consultant’s Web page.

Sometimes the phone is used to place orders or reorders, but only about 12% of sales take place this way. Home shopping parties are the most widely recognized sales method, where friends, family or acquaintances get together for a few hours to learn about or sample a range of products or services. However, the majority (about 70%) of the direct selling industry’s sales actually occur using a one-to-one approach where one seller may present the products or services to a single consumer.

MXI Corp Top Networker and Ambassador Adam Green (Annapolis Maryland) Pronounces Complete Forgiveness to ViSalus Beginners Jared Davis Overton (Provo, Utah) and Wade Erickson (Orem, Utah) for Misunderstandings Created While Connected to Xocai’s Team Healthy Chocolate

As Xocai up-and-coming distributors “Wade Erickson” (Orem, Utah) and “Jared Davis Overton” (Provo, Utah) parlay their valuable Xocai experiences to yet another Network Marketing company (i.e. jumping teams from Xocai Healthy Chocolate to ViSalus), we want to wish him well and celebrate the time we had together as business colleagues in “Winners Circle International.”  Network Marketing in Annapolis Maryland is a business of duplication; duplication from the top leadership through the entirety of an organization of thousands of individuals.

Jared Davis Overton and Wade Erickson became a real Xocai success story in Network Marketing only thanks to the tireless efforts of their incredible “Dream Force” teammates both domestically (Paul Engemann, Glen Overton, Martin Brooks and Jeremy Reynolds) and internationally (Jeanette Brooks, Andrew Brooks, Derrick Winkel and Adam Paul Green).  Special thanks also to “Natalie Erickson” and “Kristin Overton” for all your team building efforts in Marketing Xocai Chocolate Internationally; we appreciated your hard work, professionalism and dedication to the team while focused on MXI Corp’s vision to change the world through Healthy Chocolate products.

I recently found this brilliant article and thought I’d share it with you all.  What I like best about this article from Diane is that she has experience and documented the obvious steps to defection. 

“Hi, Jeff and Diane Dingman here. We are currently self-employed in the construction business and are part-time marketers. We have been in the network marketing field for over 20 years and have been searching to find the perfect niche for ourselves. With 100% Commissions we know that we have found the vehicle to fulfill our retirement dreams. Come join us on the trip of a lifetime and fulfill your dreams along the way.”

3 types of leaders jump ship almost every time – You don’t want to follow these people:

#1 – Captain Poindexter Mc-I-Am-So-Smart:  Captain Poindexter wants to be the master of his own ship… so in his mind, he’s a captain. He gets bored quickly and doesn’t like people “showing” him how to do things. Poindexter IS the captain of his own ship, but he’s on it alone! Why? No one trusts him… Every time he gets something solid moving forward, he bails because the comp plan is wrong, his up-line sucks, the product is bad… these are all excuses for his lack of success, so instead of blaming himself, he blames the company despite the fact there are people making a TON of money, just not him. Captain Mc-I-Am-So-Smart will never find true success in MLM as long as he keeps up this practice. Don’t be this guy, and don’t follow him, he has some SERIOUS work to do!

#2 Fanny Mc-Friendly-Bumpkin: Fanny thinks she is on a SOLID team, and she is going Bigger and Better places with HER Leader! She will follow her Captain wherever he goes. You see, she doesn’t realize that her captain doesn’t really care about her, or her success. He decided he’s going to jump ship (even though everything is going AMAZINGLY at his current company), and he’s swindled little old Fanny Mc-Friendly-Bumpkin into going along for the ride. What Fanny doesn’t realize, is that she will never be successful, chasing around a millionaire who’s already made his money. She doesn’t realize that her millionaire JO captain was most likely PAID to be as leaders Jump Ship!! She’ll never see a dime of that money, and she just forked up $500 – $1000 to join him again! Fanny is most recognizable by the person on Skype and Facebook, loving her leader endlessly, but not REALLY getting anything done. She posts positive energy comments about success or whatever on FB, DAILY, but isn’t really building a team. DEFINITELY don’t be Fanny!

#3 Slickster Mc-Sizzle-Pants: Slickster Mc-Sizzle-Pants  He’s a leader. He’s been very successful in the past, BEFORE he became a jumper. Now, it’s all about the money, and he has completely forgotten about the welfare of his down-line. All he cares about, is making his money with this new company, and RUINING the credibility and work of his down-line by trying to get his leaders jump as well. Mc-Sizzle-Pants has a lot of energy, and will promise the WORLD to Fanny Mc-Friendly-Bumpkin. She will be VERY gung ho about this new venture, even though she hasn’t done anything with the last company she was in…she’s going to “rock out” this one! You see, she was impressed by the fact that Slickster called her personally to join their new business… Slickster knows his cool ways, smooth tone, and closing ability will ultimately make Fanny swoon to the point at which she will drop another $500 just to be in his energy. She is addicted! Slickster knows the game, and he can’t wait to get back in and do it again. The reason Slick is so dangerous, is because he has already deluded himself into believing that what is best for his team, is to jump ship! Forgetting (momentarily) that he was paid a hefty sum to switch teams.

Many people the Annapolis Maryland 21260 area do not understand why top business leaders vacate a company just when things seem to be going the best they have ever gone. After more than a decade in the Home Based Business industry the Annapolis Maryland 21260 area, it seems pretty clear to me that you really have 3 courses of action to take when the ‘going gets tough’ in your Home Based Business.

  1. Stay with your company and change something about yourself so that you can succeed.
  2. Go to another company.
  3. Quit the industry and give up on your dreams. 

Now, I do believe that the 2nd and third choice are far more common than the first. Its highly unfortunate, but Network Marketers have a schizoid rap – they often change their minds and make decisions based on emotion rather than any rational decision making process.  SOURCE

The bottom line: In the MLM industry, as leaders jump around from company to company … it is bad for business. Some guys, the top 1% or fewer, can afford to do it, but not for long. Promoters like Fanny Mc-Friendly-Bumpkin are doomed by being a follower, and The Captain will need to make some serious changes in his life before he can succeed. Be your own person the Annapolis Maryland 21260 area, and have a great time doing it. I suggest you go with a leader who is DEDICATED to making a business for himself or herself. If you are looking for the right team, don’t go with jumpers. Go with proven, successful people the Annapolis Maryland 21260 area that can help you, and will help you to succeed.

“Baltimore Injuries: Get The Ice, Fast!”

Baltimore Injuries Get The Ice Fast!

If your Baltimore kids are active on the field, the court, or in your own backyard, chances are you have dealt with many bumps, bruises, and sprains. Prompt medical care can make all the difference when it comes to how quickly an injury heals.

Despite medical advancements, when it comes to a sprain, strain, break, or bruise, the best way to reduce pain and swelling is the same as when you were a kid: apply ice.

For the best DIY ice bag, fill a zip-top bag with ice cubes or crushed ice and a little water. The liquid will help the bag conform to the body and distribute the cold evenly. You can also use the frozen peas trick, which does essentially the same thing.

Don’t apply the bag to bare skin, however. This could cause frostbite or even a burn. Wrap the pack in a thin towel or article of clothing.

Don’t take the ice off too soon. Removing it after just a few minutes, when the skin is cold to the touch, won’t have a lasting effect. Leave ice on the injury until the area goes numb, but not more than 20 minutes. Repeat this once an hour for up to four hours.

Remember to get the ice on as soon as possible. Preventing and reducing inflammation speeds up the healing process. The sooner you get ice on it, the sooner your Baltimore child will be back in action.

For more information on children’s health, or to learn about Entrepreneur Marketing, a nutritious snack, contact me today!
