A home based business with no capital risk

19 years ago I was practicing law and specialized in representing real estate developers and homebuilders in Massachusetts. This country was heading into a recession. Just six months after we joined Nu Skin, there was not a single real estate developer or homebuilder left in the Bay State. While my decision to become a Nu Skin distributor might have been lucky, it turned out to be a good one. Many who lost their jobs and many who were worried about their corporate future joined us. Nu Skin grew from $40 million in 1989 to $500 million in 1991. Mary and I grew with it and during that period we created a network and a residual income that has continued to support us for 17 years. 

Nu Skin is recession proof. We are in a recession. Real estate is not selling. Insurance is off. Car Sales are down. Cell phone industry is poised for a loss. There are hundreds of thousands of good sales people looking for a place to exercise their skills. Nu Skin is in growth again and we are back.

Mary and I got lucky in 1989. This is your chance to win. Read the attachment and feel free to call me.  

As CEO of a company that owns a business consulting and brokerage company, I have the unusual opportunity to review more than 300 licensing and franchise businesses whose barrier to entry ranges from $20,000 to $10 million. At this particular time, one business stands above the rest in terms of investment and income potential. It is a network marketing business called Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. Unlike the 300 other businesses we represent, there is NO capital investment. Please let me know if you would like to learn more.

Four important thoughts

      NSE has a product that makes one skin look ten years younger after a four minute application (not applicable to minors) (see before and after pictures attached)

      The company has recently discovered an enzyme that ages the skin AND a way to neutralize that process.

      Nu Skin has 700 distributors whose annual income average more than half a million dollars.

      You can participate with NO capital risk

How often do people look at successful people and say something like, "Lucky son of a gun. He was at the right place at the right time." More often than not, the reason people become rich is that they are at the right place at the right time; they recognize it; and they do something about it. Sometimes people find success if they don't ignore opportunity when it knocks.

I was one of those lucky ones. In the summer of 1989, I was a partner in a Boston firm (corner office overlooking the Charles River, essentially minding my own law business, etc.) when a man, whom I had never met before introduced me to the Nu Skin business. My wife, Mary and I joined and dedicated 6 hours a week to our new business.

At that time, Nu Skin was in growth. The economy was headed into recession and people responded to this wonderful idea of having their own business with no capital risk. Our part time Nu Skin income in month 6 was $13,500. I made a business decision to quit my law firm of 30 lawyers and in our first two years Mary and I made $1 million. More significant, we have received many times that without having to work in the last 17 years.

You are now at the right place at the right time. Nu Skin is growing in the United States again. One reason is that they have a device (Galvanic Spa) that makes the face appear 10 years (or more for older looking faces) younger in less than10 minutes. The company has also discovered an enzyme that ages the skin AND a way to neutral that enzyme. I believe this is the biggest discovery since the invention of skin.

Two questions that could change your future: (1) Do you recognize what you have here? and (2) Will you take advantage of it?

I have some basis to conclude that Nu Skin is the best business opportunity for the right person.  In the world of franchising, it cost from $20,000 to $10 million to start a business.

Most franchisees do not make a great deal of money. Two examples will probably surprise you.

To start a McDonald's cost about $ 1 million and the average store returns about $100,000 per year after three to five years. And the franchisee does not own the land.

It cost about $250,000 to start a Quizno's and most owners make less than $60,000 per year and they work 60 hours a week or more. Investing in that business is like buying a low paying job.

Contrast this to our experience in Nu Skin where we earned $300,000 in our first year and $700,000 in the second. We have not had to work since 1991 because the organization of distributors that we built in our first two years has continued to purchase products on which we have been paid commissions. I do not mention this to be boastful, but rather to illustrate that the same opportunity exists today for the right people.

There are more than 700 Nu Skin distributors who average more than $506K per year.  

Can this happen to you? I think so, but that you are the determining thinker here.

May I suggest the next few simple steps:

Google Bud Corkin and Mary Averill

Call me with your questions.

This business works for friendly, outgoing individuals who prefer working for themselves to the corporate environment. The advantages of this business are:

         There is no cost to becoming a distributor. (no franchise fee)

         The Distributor does not pay royalties

         No licensing fees from the company or state or federal government

         There are no territorial limitations within several dozen international markets

         There is no capital risk at any time in the business

         There are no required purchases

         You choose your own hours

         Nu Skin products are "counter cyclical" meaning they sell even in recessionary times.

         Nu Skin leads the industry in the creation of anti-aging products which are aimed at the largest demographic markets

  • Nu Skin is growing at a rapid pace now and I have put several other businesses on the back burner in order to take advantage of this growth.  You might be interested in joining me.

They're desperately seeking a beauty fix


By Beth Teitell, Globe Correspondent  |  October 9, 2008

Deborah Passner has it rough. She left her job as a project manager in Boston amid a crumbling economy, and now she's considering moving in with a roommate to save money. It's no wonder she's cutting back to the bare necessities. You know, food, lodging, blond highlights.

"My hair is my top priority," Passner said recently. Who can blame her? She has a master's degree in psychology and lots of interests. She's single and dating, and her long golden mane is what men notice first. "I just spent $240 on a hair straightener," she said.

Even as many consumers slash discretionary spending on designer clothing and beauty and anti-aging treatments, others say their pricey La Mer facial cream, Lucky jeans, and Botox are anything but optional. Appearance enhancers are what make them them. Which explains why some fashionistas will do whatever it takes - be it paying bills late, lying to spouses, even skimping on toys for their kids - for what may seem like superficial concerns.

"I feel incomplete if my hair's not done in a salon," Angela Iriowen, 37, said on her way to work as a concierge in Boston. She gets it washed and set every other week, which runs her $35 or $40, and she's planning on getting it braided. "That's $150, not including the tip," she says. She confesses that sometimes she pays her cellphone and electric bills late, and puts off her son's pleas for Xbox games. "Your hair brings out your personality," she explained.

Two surveys taken earlier this year, by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and by the National Cosmetology Association, found that business is down because of the economy. Fifty-three percent of the plastic surgeons said their practices had been affected, and 72 percent of salon owners reported that customers were spending less. And that was before Congress voted to bail out Wall Street to the tune of $700 billion. 

The numbers are disappointing for those in the beauty business, but, as Gordon Miller, executive director of the cosmetology association, points out, customers are still booking appointments. Although many of them can afford it, some who are getting pedicures and buying Marc Jacobs are having trouble making ends meet, says Manisha Thakor, co-author of "On My Own Two Feet: A Modern Girl's Guide to Personal Finance."

"I never cease to be amazed at the contortions and excuses people come up with because they don't want to get real with their money," says Thakor, who's researching a book on talking about "money with your honey." "Most people don't like to deal with their finances in any environment, and so tough times ironically become sort of a get-out-of-jail-free card, in the sense of 'Hey, times are rough so I need to look my best / invest in my wardrobe to get / keep my job / relationship. This isn't frivolous spending. It's insurance to help me stay on my feet in turbulent times.' "

An addiction to looking good may drive some people to spend beyond their means, says self-help guru Judith Wright, author of "The Soft Addiction Solution." "We all have these deeper hungers and deeper needs," she explains. "We want to be loved, we want to matter, we want to make a difference. But we get confused. If we don't feel we're OK as we are, we think, 'If I just get my Botox, I'll be lovable.'

"They become dependent on these beautifying or glamorizing things, or designer labels, as if that's their label," she says.

That's how Emily Sobel, a freshman at Emmanuel College, says she feels. "I keep shopping even though I should be saving for tuition," Sobel said, as she hung out with two equally stylish friends on a recent Monday afternoon. She was wearing a new pair of $200 Lucky jeans. "I shouldn't have done it," she admitted of the purchase, "but the pressure of society is overwhelming. You are trained to believe if you don't have the right clothes you don't feel attractive."

Which is why Richie D. Santana, 41, who works in private security, has no plans to trim spending on clothing from Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein, even if it means he can't go out to movies or buy magazines. "We only have one life, we might as well spoil ourselves," he said as he strolled Newbury Street.

Larry Brakefield, 32, a vice president of operations for the T.G.I. Friday's restaurant chain, is also willing to sacrifice for his appearance. He's eating out less and taking fewer vacations so he can continue weekly sessions with a personal trainer, which build confidence along with muscle. "At work I look better in my suits," he said.

Brooke Siegel, Miami editor of DailyCandy.com, and an author of "The DailyCandy Lexicon: Words That Don't Exist but Should," points out that spending at the salon and med spa might be smart. "In this volatile market, maybe the best investment you can make is yourself. A good mani-pedi [will last] for at least two weeks."

Meanwhile, the easier it's become to erase gray hair and wrinkles and fat, the more people have gotten used to looking like younger, slimmer, versions of themselves. That can be hard to give up, no matter how tight money gets.

In the words of one Botox junkie, who asked that her name be omitted: "That woman with wrinkles who appears when I wait too long between appointments, I don't know who she is."
