What makes the RIGHT legitimate home business?  You’ve decided there has to be a better way and you no long want to struggle pay check to pay check or have to tell your kids you can’t afford it or maybe one day. Now you know a legitimate home business is your only option.  How do you find that good one for you? What should you really be looking for? Today I’m hoping to cut thru the hype and get down to the nitty gritty.

Three things are very important when considering a legitimate home business that can also be lucrative and help you reach your goals.  First of all, profit margin and value of product is important second longevity of the company, no company could exist long term with out many satisfied clients and finally support structure of other people who have succeeded.  If you can locate all three you have found a legitimate home business and a way to develop an income stream to alleviate some of the stress and struggle caused my financial strain. That doesn’t guarantee success but it definitely puts you on the right track and one step ahead in the game of life.

First let’s talk about profit margin.  It is imperative that you can actually generate enough profit up front to be able to pay for any business expenses and to pay your bills.  A lot of people look at MLM as a way to work from home and it may be or can but, my biggest issue is normally your income is supposedly “residual” but it almost always relies on other people to keep it coming in.  If you have a valuable product, it should be something that people will pay for but at the same time allowing you to attain income upfront and quickly depending on how YOU work not someone else.  It normally takes about as long to make a 100 dollar product sale as it does a 1,000 dollar product sale.  Which one most likely will pay you more?  Look for a product that is valuable and has a generous built in profit margin upfront not just the back end.

Second, look for a company product or service that has a track record.  Often times the hype is always stressing starting at ground floor opportunities or getting in at the beginning.  Most of that is exactly that hype and garbage.  You don’t want to put in tons of effort and build something incredible just for some fly by night operation to change the product, process or company you’ve invested so much time into.  Find a company that is well established 10 years or more at least but the longer the better.  If that company has helped others create a lucrative income and it’s lasted over a decade chances are it’s pretty dang legit.

Finally, every company that has a track record and has been around if, it’s possible to generate a lucrative income it should be possible to easily find others that have been able to succeed.  But look, do Google searches for those that have been abandoned or neglected.  While there will always be some bad apple and no one bad apple should represent a company.  You don’t want to work in a company or industry that only attracts bad apples and you certainly don’t want to connect with a bad apple.  One of the simplest ways to help you find a legitimate and lucrative home business and just seek referrals.  Everyone and everything has a reputation learn that reputation.  Are they known for support, help and success.  Or what is the company or service you are looking at known for?  If there are a lot of clients, reps or employees you may not want to work with a company like that.

It should be easy to find a home business but you want to find the RIGHT legitimate home business for you.  So look for a valuable product that allows you to achieve good upfront profit not relying on someone else to achieve your income for you.  Your financial dreams should not hinge on what someone else does or doesn’t do. Remember every company is filtered by time.  IF it is legitimate and lucrative it takes time to develop a track record.  So look for companies and products that have been around for 10 years or more.  Then find the fruit of others that have done what you want to do.  What is their track record or experience?  Did they get the support and help they needed?  Does the company foster team work and help?  Are there people that help you when they don’t benefit directly?

Life is short and you don’t have time to wait.  Good Luck!

Peter Harpster is a business man, dad, Christian and author.  Recently after reading one of his blog post while I was in the process of shooting some videos for my youtube channel I got inspired by the content.  He was talking about how people stay in the same old rut and  same old struggles and he likened it to the TV show “Breaking Bad”.  You don’t have to wait until you are laid off or there is a tragic event and you feel helpless or forced to do something different in a time of emergency.  You can make the choices to step out and improve your life now.

Peter Harpster talked about what if you had mentor?  What if you had someone who has done some of the things you want to do and they actually helped you?  Those mentors do exist but you can’t find them with out looking.  For a man in his early twenties this was amazing wisdom.

Watch the short videos below!  Then read his blog.





You can read the article that inspired me right here on Peter’s Website


The Truth is…
You don’t have to let life catch you off guard!
You don’t have to settle for a rut!
You don’t have to be in need or lack!
You were designed for more!

Success in a legitimate home business and in life in general is pretty simple.  You have to know what you are working towards.  It may not be as big as you think.  Of course you want to pay off debt, increase your income, travel the world and create memories with your family and friends experiencing culture and cuisine and building security for the future.  But that may be what drives you but it’s often to big to work toward every day.  You have to have something small that you can see the fruit of quickly.

I always have the big goal of building wealth and a legacy that will out last me.  Allowing my family to continue to build influence and income to help other people.  But then if I didn’t find something in the short term I’d never make it to work consistently.  There are 3 things that I do.  First set small activity goals, have a reward built in and engage other people in my same purpose so they can be driven, it’s fun and creates accountability. You begin to develop team work and results little by little for yourself and with everyone involved.  I’ll give you an example.

This week on our team I created a little fun “contest”.  The object was each of us just doing our personal best in 3 areas of business 3 different days. Who ever did the best each day I’d give a $50 gift card to.


Turbo Tuesday – Making as many dials as possible to cold contacts/leads. 

Witnessing Wednesday – Being the messenger talking about our product or service to as many as we can in one day

Thundering Thursday – Bringing about change by scheduling as many clients as we can for an interactive experience.

As a team if we made 10,000 dials on Tuesday, bring the message to 500 on Wednesday and have 100 clients scheduled for an interactive experience I would make a $1,000 donation to the orphans in India www.grouprev.com/dfi.  Then if I reach my own goals I’d cook one of my favorite meals for the family this weekend. So we will definitely be having shrimp scampi tonight.

I do work with some of the most amazing people on the planet!  Huge Congrats go out to a few that excelled really well.

Congrats to everyone that ran on our little contest and helped inspire each of us.  This list is far from conclusive and it’s only based off of numbers that I got turned it to me. 

VERY IMPORTANT:  Each of of these Directors are true leaders.  They are in the trenches leading by example.  They are each amazing people and if you are fortunate to get to work with EITHER of them one on one you are working with one of the best in the home business industry PERIOD!  From the bottom of my heart thank you to each of you for inspiring me to keep working each day.  Working for the little rewards so we can reach the big goals.

But for you and your own life, this was just a silly little example of some thing that’s fun and easy to do.  I made my calls and did my interviews along side of them.  I posted my numbers with them why? Because it’s really lonely going through life alone.  Find out what motivates you and use it with the team around you, even if it’s just one or two or hundreds. You will create little rewards to work toward and there is always accountability in a group. One day you wake up and realize each little step added up got you to the destination.

Do you have things to work toward?

When I first started a legitimate Internet home business I had no idea what I was doing.  Previously my military experience, my dad or husband experience and being 6 figures in debt never prepared me for how to effectively worked from home.  But that didn’t stop me from having success.  I made 6 figures working part time that 12 months and in the last 30 days I’ve made right at $33,000.  THERE IS A SECRET TO HOW I DID IT!

Raise Your hand if you wanna know what it is?


The secret is something that 10’s of 1,000’s heard about but only a tiny fraction took advantage of it.  It is incredible how many people miss the small things and come up with excuses like I don’t have the time, I can’t afford it or maybe next time.  When the truth really is you can always afford to improve your life, there is always time if you want to make it and you never know if there will ever be a next time.

Raise your hand if you will be the one that takes action and makes things happen, versus wishing you had years down the road.


You see the secret is really a no brainer.  The secret is live training calls that Dani Johnson did from time to time via conference calls.  Dani Johnson went from homeless to millions and she did it with a legitimate home business.  She can teach you as she’s taught thousands.  But of course times have changed now.  Conference calls are old news, but now days Dani Johnson does webinars.  The good news is there is one coming up tonight.  You don’t want to miss this training if you have a home business, internet business or ever even imagined you’d like to work from home.

There are only a few slots left.  I am not an employee and by choice I’m not an affiliate.  I’m simply a result of being a client of Dani Johnson.  On purpose I will not guide you to an affiliate link.  Many people claim they want to help others only to guide them to a service they get paid for.  I do not get paid for this advice by Dani Johnson in any way period.  I am passionate about what Dani Johnson teaches because it’s what I still use today to create an incredible income for my family and so could you. Go to www.smarternetworker.com/webinar and register for her live training tonight!  DO NOT MISS YOUR SHOT, there are many that heard about the first event I heard about.  Many made a different decision, surely for a good reason.  But at this point not being there, based off of my results has cost them millions. Don’t let that be you.

See You There,
Stacy O’Quinn


P.S. Be one of the ones that raises your hand!  Be part of training that will literally teach you how to increase your income, decrease your stress and debt at that same time having more fun in life! CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW RIGHT NOW!

Lessons of a Slot Machine

By · Comments (0)



Recently I had the privilege of a romantic 4 day weekend getaway with my beautiful and I should add sexy wife.  I was able to take her to her favorite restaurant Thirty-Two which is located on the top floor of the Imperial Palace Casino Resort and Spa. While there we enjoyed an incredible amount of people watching and you know me always looking for a life or business lesson.  I FOUND ONE!

Watching people play the slots they are missing their best chance of winning and just like in life the choice is totally up to them.  You see if a machine allows you to play 3 credits usually the first credit which pays the least doesn’t even pay out the top half of the winning combos.  So if a machine has bars and seven’s the first credit only pays when the bars line up but nothing if the sevens line up even though that amount is 5-10 times the winnings.  By playing the second credit now they can win with bars and sevens but they can’t qualify for the jackpot even if it does come up.  They won’t win!  But if they played with all 3 credits they could win on any win that comes up including the jackpot.

Now I’m not advocating gambling in any way but the majority of people were just playing the single credit so the most they could ever win was less than 100 dollars in most cases.  The person next to them could play 3 credits and win the jackpot and the person playing one credit would grumble that “they never get that lucky”.  The truth is they can’t get lucky if they never put themselves in the right place to even receive credit for their win.  See they have the same opportunity, as the winner but they made different choices.  Winning at slots even if you make the best choices does take luck of course because you can’t control the outcome no matter what.

That is the difference in business.  You have total control of if you are a winner or not.  But just like in slots most people approach business hoping to get lucky but they aren’t even playing the MAX BET.  Mentally they aren’t all in and  they are still hoping they get lucky.  While a lesson can be learned from slots, slots machines are nothing like business because of the fact that you get exactly what you make up your mind you want based off of your actions no luck needed.  The real question you have to ask yourself is are you really ALL IN?


To Your Success,

Success Should be Simple

By · Comments (0)

One of the first things that Dani Johnson teaches is success should be simple.  McDonald’s can get pimple faced teenagers to run a billion dollar company. IT’s because they’ve designed a simple system.  The fact is your own success should be simple as well.  Most everyone over complicates everything when they are first starting out.  The key is not figuring out a mousetrap but more importantly making sure the mousetrap you have is effective.

There are a few things you should look for.  First if it’s a home business do they use Dani Johnson training and scripts?  Is there one path that the top leaders are using and creating results.  Are there tons and tons of results in place already using the current “mousetrap”? If there is a simple system there should be real results, and those results include lots of people either clients and/or business associates you can easily connect with one on one.  So you think you found that perfect simple solution? Or you are wondering what it should look like?  Let me show you!



Years ago when I started in business everyone talked about how great the opportunity was.  Because it was the best product of all time, not possible for any product although there are thousands of great products out there.  Second they talked about the marketing plan had 17 different ways to market and get clients and with all those options something has to work. Finally you always had different types of presentations and 7 or 8 different scripts or versions of a script.  The fact is it could take you a “lifetime” to find the “right” combination.  If it was such a great opportunity there should be one simple process like McDonalds that every one can use and at least get to a basic 6 figure income.

So use the McDonalds test to see if you have found your path to success.  Can a 14 year old kid do this and make a 6 figure income in the next 12 months.  If it’s not even really possible than it’s not simple enough yet.  Find another mousetrap!

Success Should be Simple,

First Steps to Success with Dani Johnson was truly a life changing experience for me.  If you are going to First Steps, thinking about going or just actively wanting to learn more about how Dani Johnson helps others.  You need to know a few things to get the most out of any of Dani’s training.


(Above is a picture taken with 1600 eyeballs looking at me as I shared why I promote Dani’s Training)

Recently I posted a video on my YouTube channel about what you need to know when you go to First Steps so you are prepared.  It is definitely an event you need to be prepared for.  The average person is so stunned the first time they go because it is definitely way different than anything they expected.

- Dani Johnson is not politically correct.

- Dani Johnson is not hype and motivation

- Dani Johnson is not going to tell you what you want to hear

Most people are so numbed out by skepticism because of the hype, fancy marketing and misinformation that can easily be found every where.  But you quickly learn that Dani is different, her training is different, her concepts are different.  Look at the results of her clients and realize something must be different.  You are right it is ABSOLUTELY different.  But most people do not expect how different Dani’s training really is. What you need to know about First Steps to Success and Dani is.

- Dani Johnson is the real deal

- Dani Johnson only teaches what she’s done, not theory

- Dani Johnson really does want you to succeed, her model is if you succeed you will tell people where you learned it  (that is real different than most)

If you want to know how to get the most out of a First Steps training event or you are thinking about going but you haven’t watched the video to get specific details I’ll post it below.  Watch it closely and take notes.


How to Get the Most for Dani Johnson and First Steps

Hopefully we get meet at this next Dani Johnson event coming up,
Stacy O’Quinn


P.S. If you’ve been to First Steps feel free to comment, share a testimony or give a word of encouragement to anyone thinking about going to the very next event in the comments below.

P.P.S. I believe in the training, so I don’t mind if you want share this post with anyone, you have my permission completely.  It’s about reaping and sowing, sow good seed and you reap a harvest.

Mentor, How Do You Find One?

By · Comments (0)

Mentorship, the act of being a mentor or guiding someone.  How do you find a good mentor and what makes a good mentor?  In other words who is going to be guiding you? Most people who decide they would like guidance and direction/help in business really want to be able to find a mentor or someone to guide them a long.  Below I’ll give a few guidelines to help you in your search.

First and foremost you need to find someone that is a product of their information.  There are many famous authors out there that can write a great book with good content but they write better books than they actually help people create results.  If you want to write a great book you need to learn from a best selling author.  If you want to succeed in business out side of writing you need to find someone who has succeeded and has a track record of helping others to succeed.  An author that writes about business without business results isn’t a credible source even if they can write and entertain an audience in print.

Second, you want someone who has created success in a very step by step fashion.  Something they can easily teach you.  This is why I love Dani Johnson as a mentor and why I’ve followed her training and taught others how to apply it as well. Because of Dani’s methods I’ve seen thousands increase their income and pay off millions in debt.  Today I still teach how to apply Dani’s scripts and concepts because it’s what I still do daily to build my own income.

Finally, you need someone who is willing to be there to help you and tell you what you need to hear even if it’s not always what you want to hear.  We have enough people in life being politically correct and gently skirting difficult issues.  Your success relies on knowing what you need to know when you need to know it!  Period. If you are going the wrong direction you need someone to boldly stand in front of you and point in the right direction.  Your life is to important and your time is to valuable to be beating around the bush with strategies and tips you need, when you need it.

As long as you find a mentor that is a product of their own advice, they have a step by step method that has proven results like Dani Johnson and they are willing to be bold in teaching and helping you along the way.  We are aren’t talking about someone that “calls” themselves a coach and charges a fee.  That’s crap, we are talking about someone who is making a living and living a life like you want to live already.  If you find someone who has these qualities you follow their lead no matter what.


To Your Success,
Stacy O’Quinn

One Step to Success!

By · Comments (0)

Success is simple if you take it one step at the time.  Maybe you want to make a million a year? First you have to learn how to make 50,000 a year, then 150,000, then 300,000 and it should keep growing every year.  For some they believe success is to hard, they can’t figure it out or they have to get “Lucky”.  All of those things are a lie and if you focus on them you will never take one single step to success.  Then you will never succeed.

You want to be financially independent and have the freedom that comes with it?  First you need to know what success looks like.  For our example since this is the 6 Figure Income Club let’s assume you want to make 6 figures a year with a home business.  You must take one step in that direction every single day.  When you get to the end of the day what did you do to actually move yourself forward? Skill and results have to grow to get to where you want.  That means you can’t take a step in the right direction once you have to do it daily for it to grow.  Success isn’t like working in a factory one step at a time equals 1+1=2.  But success grows and expands itself bigger than your last result.  The issue is the human mind has a hard time grasping this concept.

The human mind is looking instant gratification, hence the lottery is extremely popular.  I might buy a ticket once and make millions.  Even though your chances of getting struck by lighting is far greater than actually winning the lottery.  The logic of the mind can often confuse you on how to succeed. Makes you think success must be difficult.  If I asked you what would you prefer to have either I’ll give you 10,000 dollars a day for 30 days or I’ll give you a penny and you can double your money every day for 30 days starting with just one cent.  Which one would you prefer to have? Our first thought is DUH I’ll take 10,000 dollars a day, but that actually will only equal 300,000 dollars.  If you take the penny and then double your money every day for 30 days, that actually equals 10 MILLION dollars in 30 days.

Most people only focus on the little results in the beginning of their journey.  They often get frustrated with what they see.  It doesn’t seem to matter one penny only equals 2 cent the next day and then only 4 cent the third day.  But if you stay focused on one step at a time and never get frustrated with the little steps they add up in the end.

So how does all this make sense to you?  What is your goal?  One of my biggest reasons for success is at the end of every day I always ask myself did I physically move myself another step closer today.  I’m the judge on how effective that step was.  Talking to one client doesn’t count as effective because I can talk to 5 on a bad day.  So did I talk to at least 5 clients?  Did I increase my advertising? Is my skill set growing based off of my actions? Every day I need to be moving just one more step to my success. After a while your results will confuse those around you.  They can’t figure it out, they suddenly wander are you talking to the same clients?  Do you read the same scripts?  Do you have different websites? Do you have a magical product?  People who are destined to fail will be confused by your success and seek out their own lottery ticket.  Never fully realizing you used everything they have in front of them.  Of course never taking their own steps one day at a time and DAILY!

What is your next step today?  Did you move yourself forward today? Consistency is a 6 Figure Skill set, period!

It’s a Journey and we can get there together!
Stacy O’Quinn


P.S. Remember sometimes the results are tiny in the beginning.  Just like doubling the penny, but it adds up if you keep taking just one more step.
