Seeking The Optimal SDI Opportunity?

By Tom J Kennedy

NOTE: As a backgrounder - SDI entrepreneurs are invited to read this article - a historical review of the SDI industry - titled: "Analysis, Projections, Observations & Proposals For The SDI Industry "

The SDI (Self Directed Income) industry continues to grow during the current chaotic economic environment. Prospective SDI entrepreneurs are invited to do their due diligence as they research the SDI industry (in general) and the specific SDI business opportunity that they are being introduced to by any active SDI entrepreneur.

The novice SDI entrepreneur – someone new to the SDI industry with no previous experience as an SDI entrepreneur – is often enrolled into the first SDI opportunity that s/he learns about. Sometimes this first experience within the SDI industry works out to be successful, but too often the reverse is true and the novice SDI entrepreneur quits the original SDI opportunity and then spreads negative comments about his/her failed SDI experience. 

It is prudent to seek and find an “easy-entry” SDI opportunity to gain some experience within the SDI industry. As we progress into this 21st Century, we are discovering that indeed there are SDI opportunities that offer quality product lines that consumers purchase on a repeat basis, with no initial registration fee, with no monthly fee and no annual fee, with no auto-ship requirement and yet with a reasonable and fair compensation plan.

Prospective SDI entrepreneurs are cautioned to never let the claims of over-inflated earnings cloud their judgment as they consider their options. It is critical to make certain that the SDI business opportunity that one is exploring or researching is not an illegal, marketing scheme, craftily designed to resemble a legitimate and legal SDI business opportunity.

The SDI industry (otherwise referred to as network marketing or multi-level marketing) is the fastest growing sector of the direct sales and marketing industry. The SDI industry promotes a tried and proven business model based on a “home office” company distributing quality products and/or services to consumers – through teams or networks of independent contractors or associates – who are referred to as SDI entrepreneurs.

The SDI industry’s business model has been evolving since this unique marketing concept was birthed in the mid-20th Century. There are some similarities to the franchising business model whereby the franchisee (franchise business owner) pays – usually very high fees – to the franchisor (the “home office” company) for the privilege of marketing that particular company’s products and/or services to retail customers.

For the high fee paid to the “home office” company, by the franchise owner, s/he contracts for sales training as well as advertising and marketing support and of course, the right to use the “franchisor’s corporate name.”

Though the SDI business model has some similarity to the franchise business model, the initial fees paid to the “home office” company in the SDI industry are minimal (when compared to the fees required in the franchise industry). In the SDI industry the fees range from zero to amounts that are usually less than $50.00 (Canadian funds).

Also, most SDI entrepreneurs commence their SDI business as a part-time venture that can be operated from their residence as a home-based enterprise, Having a part-time, home-based enterprise qualifies an active, SDI entrepreneur to deduct various expenses as legitimate business deductions against his/her salaried income. Read more information in this article titled: "Tax Benefits of an SDI Enterprise."

The SDI business model is evolving towards decentralization – and every hourly employee and/or salaried individual is invited to participate. When SDI entrepreneurs are actively promoting this unique marketing model, they are teaching by example that they are changing the way they spend their money – supporting each other’s local, home-based enterprises and thereby spending less and less money with the giant, trans-national, and totally centralized, retail corporations.

Additionally, the SDI business model permits and encourages participating SDI entrepreneurs to not only market products and/or services to retail customers, but also the SDI entrepreneurs have the option of enrolling (sponsoring) other SDI entrepreneurs to work with them as a team, organization or network.

When a participating SDI entrepreneur enrolls a new recruit and teaches him/her about the products and the business opportunity, s/he will earn fair commissions from the sales production of the team or network as it grows with new SDI entrepreneurs. This element of the business model is very attractive for earning residual income(s).

In the late 1970’s, the pioneering SDI company, the Amway Corporation challenged the false accusation by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in court – that their business model was am illegal pyramid scheme. The Amway Corporation won the court case and thereafter, the SDI business model has been copied by thousands of participating SDI companies. Read more about the word “pyramid” in this article titled: “Have No Fear Of The Word Pyramid.”

Prospective SDI entrepreneurs seeking the optimal SDI business opportunity are encouraged to consider various factors before blindly enrolling with the first SDI “Home office” company that they happen to be introduced to by a friend, family member, working colleague or otherwise.

Too many seasoned, SDI entrepreneurs are focused on “making money” without realizing that our currency orthodox, economic system of usury-based, debt money is malfunctioning and in danger of collpase. As long as we-the-debtors keep using their (the bankers’) money and keep paying them a fee (usury) we can expect the same results – wars, violence, poverty, scarcity and lack – for none of us is freed from usury, until all of us a freed from usury.

With a little re-education about the “truth” about modern money creation, SDI entrepreneurs will realize that the less and less that we use their (the bankers’) money and keep paying them a fee (usury) – the more we can work towards shifting the consciousness towards the possibility of usuryfree living for everyone on planet earth.

If you are not taken in by the over-inflated earnings phenomenon that has been so commonly over-stated in the SDI industry and you really want to reach out and help others and strive to make this world a better place, then seek to be enrolled in an SDI business opportunity by a usuryfree creative who doubles as SDI entrepreneur. And know that all SDI entrepreneurs, (novices and seasoned) are invite to enroll with (join) the UsuryFree SDI University.

This way you will have an opportunity to earn secondary sources of income and you will also learn how to use less and less of their money and learn how to negotiate trades/exchanges using a combination of federal cash and any usuryfree community currency.

When seeking the optimal SDI business opportunity look for these elements from the “home office” company and your enrolment team:

1. Is the “home office” company debt free?
2. How many years has the SDI “home office” company been doing business?
3. How much is the initial investment and what other fees are being assessed by the “home office” company when you enroll?
4. What is the product-return policy?
5. Does the “home office” and your “enrolment team” offer sales and marketing training, as well as personal development, and re-education on relevant and timely topics?
6. Read the fine print to determine the “home office” company’s policy about controlling your SDI enterprise i.e. can you add another SDI company’s product without the fear of termination by the original “home office” SDI company.

The optimal SDI business opportunity for any novice SDI entrepreneur to consider ought to have the majority of these perks:

1.Quality products (organic – if possible) with a minimum of chemical additives at reasonable prices - that will be purchased by astute consumers on a repeat basis.
2. No registration fee.
3. No monthly or annual fee.
4. A free replicating website.
5.No requirement to purchase products upon the initial registration.
6. No monthly auto-ship requirement - otherwise referred to as "forced consumption."
7. A minimum requirement of one order in any calendar year keeps your account active.
8. Access to both the local and global market.
9. Reasonable shipping costs on reasonable priced, quality products
10. A generous compensation plan, that rewards the SDI entrepreneurs who produce results.

NOTE: Please forward the names of any SDI companies that you know of that offer the majority of the 10 perks listed above. Send an email to: with “Optimal SDI opportunity” in the subject line.
