Essential background details about the SDI industry
By Tom J. Kennedy
The SDI (Self Directed Income) industry is defined as that segment of the sales and marketing industry whereby people earn their primary and/or secondary income(s) by operating a home-based enterprise. The network marketing industry otherwise known as the multi-level marketing industry or the referral industry as well as the direct sales industry and any other home-based enterprises are all components of the SDI industry.
Most SDI structures use networked/linked exponential growth, team type structures that are in some way pyramidal is shape and structure. This is noted as a complement from this author who recognizes the power of utilizing these concepts as an astute marketing strategy in today's global boom in the SDI industry. Unfortunately, the media has maligned the word 'pyramid' to conjure up a false image and incorrectly imply that any such marketing structures are ponzi scams without products and/or services. Properly identified, the pyramidal shape of diminishing opportunity is most common in conventional business and institutional structures, though the media conveniently overlooks this fact.
The networked business team organizations that are usually and correctly identified with the SDI industry are likewise becoming popular within the usuryfree community currency movement as we progress into this 21st Century. Unlike conventional corporations and institutions, which malfunction as pyramidal shapes of diminishing opportunity, the modern SDI industry functions with increasing opportunity because of the inverted pyramidal marketing infrastructure.
In fact, opportunity in the SDI industry maximizes as each individual sets out to build a decentralized but connected sales structure, supported by everyone before and after his or her entry. Everyone benefits from the individual and collective energy of all the participants in the networked organizations of any SDI opportunity. These benefits are expanded when participants agree to accept any usuryfree community currency as partial payment for any negotiated sales. Anyone may purchase products and/or services from an SDI entrepreneur without becoming involved in the attached marketing opportunity. Obviously, any corresponding SDI business opportunity must be studied and realistically analysed.
Consider the initial enrolment fee and the annual fees as well as any additional costs one commits to when setting up any enterprise. Realize that your potential warm market may be limited. Quite often, new recruits or enrollees in the SDI industry do not understand what is expected of them in their new dual role as a 'free enterpriser' and a 'usuryfree creative.' Without a doubt, building any successful SDI enterprise is hard work. Adding the twist of blending sales with usuryfree community currency and federal cash may be an additional challenge for novices. There is no free lunch. Problems only arise when new recruits or enrollees cannot replicate themselves. For example, one will not sell a prospect an airplane unless s/he has the money to buy it and the license to fly it.
Ask questions and question answers to determine if any particular SDI opportunity would be beneficial to you and your loved ones. If you are interested in the corresponding business opportunity offered by any SDI entrepreneur, it is your responsibility to scrutinize the details before paying the entry fee. Be aware of all expected expenses, potential commissions, time commitments, and be meticulous about small details. If you do your home work thoroughly, you may be highly motivated to enrol with an SDI opportunity and thereby be in a unique position to optimally promote the usuryfree community currency movement. Don't permit the human condition to accept a default to apathy. Take action NOW!!
Usuryfree creatives agree that the re-education process is critical at this time and therefore all awakening individuals must reach out with a spirit of co-operation. There is no time for bitter and paralysing rivalry in free enterprise as we enter this new age of 'co-operative capitalism.' SDI entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized retail businesses who double as usuryfree creatives must work together in local communities, both rural and urban, as well as nationally and globally.
There will be no shortage of prospects as the majority of the population is broke, ill-informed, confused and desperately in need of the kind of information that was shared during the second annual usuryfree week. Please tell us of other reputable networks, groups, associations as we've found that each has something unique to share, to the enrichment of all of us.
Plans are already underway to make SDI Meet Ups, widely celebrated events by inviting SDI entrepreneurs to bring a selection of their products and/or services for display and agree to offer them for sale by agreeing to accept a portion of usuryfree community currency as a complement with federal cash.
Feedback and input is welcomed from usuryfree creatives and/or otherwise.
