The UsuryFree Network, UsuryFree Creatives and SDI Entrepreneurs

By Tom J. Kennedy

Over its ten years as a growing force in the world of usuryfree economics, the UsuryFree Network has offered usuryfree creatives - many of whom double as SDI (Self Directed Income) entrepreneurs - news, information and resources about (a) the problems associated with our orthodox, economic system of usury-based, debt money and (b) solution-oriented models of usuryfree finance. Indeed, usuryfree creatives who double as SDI entrepreneurs are unabashed champions of usuryfree living for they know that "Life Without Usury" is possible.

The economic world is changing. Old paradigms are failing and falling. New paradigms are emerging. The role of usuryfree creatives who double as SDI entrepreneurs is evolving at a faster rate given the ease of modern technology and the acceptance of social media. The mission to experience the reality of usuryfree living is moving ahead with thanks to those usuryfree creatives who double as SDI entrepreneurs.

We have launched the blog, The UsuryFree Eye Opener as our electronic arm of the UsuryFree Network. These sentences describe The UsuryFree Eye Opener: “It seeks active usuryfree creatives to help advance our mission of creating a usuryfree lifestyle for everyone on this planet. Our motto is 'peace and plenty before 2020.' The UsuryFree Eye Opener publishes not only articles related to the problems associated with our orthodox, usury-based 1/(s-i) system but also to the solutions as offered by active usuryfree creatives - and much more for your re-education.”

We are networking with Grasshopper Media and other innovative, alternative media sources. We are advocating that individuals create and issue their personal brands of usuryfree community currency for internal trading within their own loyal networks. We are intent on creating a new architecture for usuryfree living in this 21st Century.

At the UsuryFree Network, we are proud of our initiatives, our models for usuryfree living and our growing numbers of committed usuryfree creatives who double as SDI entrepreneurs. Out ten year old message that originated as a ‘status’ comment on my Facebook wall gets repeated and re-posted often: “Your name ... is thinkin’ usury is the direct and/or indirect cause of wars, violence, poverty, scarcity and lack and that we must STOP payin’ usury to bankers.”

Our seven year old tradition of celebrating UsuryFree Day (November 13th) and UsuryFree Week (November 13th to 19th) each year is becoming more popular as more and more people recognize and capitalize on the fact that more consumers are awakening and shifting gears to foster local shopping.

As more SDI entrepreneurs become aware of the usuryfree community currency movement, they will understand the power and potential of offering products and/or services to customers whereby trades/exchanges are negotiated with a combination of any usuryfree community currency and federal cash.

Likewise, as the orthodox, economy of usury-based, debt money is examined and the design flaw of usury is exposed for the evil and immoral element that it is, a universal, usuryfree, time currency becomes more appealing as the ultimate trading unit for this 21st Century and beyond.

Readers are invited to review the information and any of the products and/or business (SDI) opportunities that are briefly explained at these twin blogs - The SDI Eye Opener and The UsuryFree Eye Opener and at UsuryFree Living - then take action to (a) purchase the listed products and/or services using a combination of usuryfree community currency and federal cash and/or (b) enrol as an SDI entrepreneur and commit to sharing the information, knowledge and resources with others who are ready and willing to be re-educated.

The Word-of-Mouth Phenomenon Is Working

By Tom J. Kennedy

SDI (Self Directed Income) entrepreneurs have identified the word-of-mouth phenomenon as the optimal strategy to share information about their selected products and/or services. The Direct Selling Association reports that approximately 15 million Americans are enrolled as SDI entrepreneurs marketing their favourite products and/or services.

Since Canada has about one tenth of the population of the United States of America, we can assume that there are a minimum of 1.5 million Canadians who are enrolled as SDI entrepreneurs. That is a total of 16.5 million SDI entrepreneurs in North America who are networking and sharing information about their favourite products and/or services with families, friends, neighbours and working colleagues etc. In turn, a high percentage of these SDI entrepreneurs pass along the information to others and this is the essence of the word-of-mouth phenomenon as it applies to the SDI industry.

Andy Sernovitz writes in his book, Word of Mouth Marketing: “When people trust you, they are willing to put their words on the line for you. Please them, inspire them, and they’ll bring their friends to you. Word-of-mouth marketing works for any size business. You don’t need to have a hot website, to be in a sexy industry or to have a cool, new technology. You can make it work for a single store with no advertising budget. You just have to give people something to talk about.”

The word-of-mouth phenomenon works optimally within the SDI industry simply because people like to tell stories about their favourite products and/or services. Since SDI entrepreneurs market these products and/or services, they earn respectable commissions when a consumer purchases any product or service from them. This is a unique and appealing aspect of the SDI industry, for as we know we do not earn such commissions when we apply the word-of-mouth phenomenon to the movie industry, the restaurant industry, the franchise industry or the retail industry involving big box stores as owned and operated by the major transnational corporations.

The growing number of online, social networks like Facebook, MySpace, Ning, Twitter, etc. are advancing the word-of-mouth phenomenon to ever-evolving levels as we progress into this 21st Century. According to Andy Sernovitz, about 20 percent of word-of-mouth marketing currently happens online, and this percentage is likely to keep increasing. The remaining 80 percent of word-of-mouth marketing is comprised of face-to-face conversations.

It is noteworthy that a survey by emarketer reveals that approximately 53 percent of online traffic is initiated by family members and/or friends who share links to recommended websites.

Indeed, the combination of face-to-face and online communication is causing the word-of-mouth phenomenon to create annual sales of more than $30 billion. Yes, the word-of-mouth phenomenon does impact the bottom line of millions of SDI entrepreneurs who are dedicated to spreading the good news about the selected lines of products and/or services that they are excited about.

Permit me to share the good news about the products and/or services that I have selected for my personal, SDI Portfolio by reading the article “An SDI Backgrounder and Unique and Timely SDI Opportunities” (see the link below) and clicking on the various links about products for more information.

At your request, I will answer any questions and offer you any of my selected products for your consumption. Should you wish to add a particular opportunity to your SDI Portfolio, I promise whatever support that I can offer as well as additional support from my team of SDI entrepreneurs. Please forward any emails to: with “SDI products/services” in the Subject line.

It’s Time For Fuel Savings

By Tom J. Kennedy

Gasoline prices have soared reaching well beyond $1.00+ per litre in Canada. The experts predict that double-digit gas prices are here to stay.

Since it will be a while before we shift from our conventional fossil fuel economy to an economy that is powered by completely renewable energy, it is prudent to doctor your fuel by putting the ‘gasoline pill’ or the ‘diesel pill’ in your tank every time you say ‘fill ‘er up.’

These pills are inserted into the tank just prior to filling the tank. These ‘pills’ increase engine power, slash smoke emissions, promote more complete fuel combustion and commonly improve fuel economy by reducing fuel consumption from 10% to 15% on most vehicles. These ‘gasoline pills’ and ‘diesel pills’ are environmentally-friendly and non-toxic.

One ‘pill’ treats up to 20 gallons or 75 litres of fuel. There are two sizes of blister packs. One blister pack contains 5 ‘pills’ and retails for $15.00, and the other blister pack contains 10 ‘pills’ (plus taxes & shipping). There are also ‘pills’ for furnace oil tanks that will reduce the consumption of furnace oil during the winter months.

It is recommended that consumers record their kilometers per litre without the ‘pill’ and then record your kilometers per litre when the ‘pill’ is inserted in the fuel tank.

The ‘gasoline pill’ and the ‘diesel pill’ are being distributed by the UsuryFree Network as a fundraiser for the annual celebration of UsuryFree Day and Week from November 13th to 19th.

Usuryfree creatives who are trading with any usuryfree community currency have the option of purchasing either blister pack with a negotiated combination of usuryfree community currency and federal cash.

There are significant discounts for bulk purchases of blister packs. Inquire for details.

Truckers and travelers are invited to enrol with my team at Optimal Earth and launch your won SDI (Self Directed Income) enterprise. Full details are posted at my affiliate website:
