Additional Income Streams

Online Shopping Category Options


Recognize that the "Old School Way of Thinking" where if one works hard and give it your all, and the job will be there doesn't exist? Click HERE to discover more reasons why "traditional" jobs are often not the best exclusive alternatives for financial independence in this topsy-turvy world.

The broad array of protections that families once depended on to shield them from economic turmoil — stable jobs, widely available health coverage, guaranteed pensions, short unemployment spells, long-lasting unemployment benefits and well-funded job training programs — have been scaled back or have vanished altogether.

Three options to save money and time with opportunities to generate additional income streams while running one's own home-based business.

FIRST OPTION: Purchase Quixtar's exclusive products as well as products from partner stores such as Dell, Circuit City, Barnes and Noble, Disney Store, Office Depot, Avis, PacSun or Floragift on the Quixtar web site. (One can also purchase from these vendors at their own web sites, typically at the same retail price. Quixtar IBOs often receive discounts.)

SECOND OPTION: Refer other people to buy these same products while receiving a small percentage ("bonus") of the cost of the purchased goods, with Quixtar-exclusive products yielding a higher percentage while receiving greater discounts on purchasesd products.

THIRD OPTION: Help other people repeat the above-listed "Option #1" and Option #2" while receiving a percentage of their sales.

Since no money is earned for recruiting new people into the company, Quixtar is not a pyramid scheme.

A growing number of families have found themselves caught on a financial roller coaster ride, with their annual incomes taking increasingly wild leaps and plunges over time (as much as 30% a year).

The more that a family's income fluctuates, the greater the chance one will be caught in a downdraft when a crisis — such as a layoff, divorce or illness — strikes. Then, it can be extremely tough to bounce back especially when the average family income was dropping at 2.3% in the early '90s.

Since 2000, incomes have reversed course and fallen about 1% a year, according to recently released census figures. "rising income instability suggests that families from the working poor to those fairly far up the income distribution are bearing more economic risk."

A business research group, found that 56% of major corporations surveyed agreed that "employees who are loyal to the company and further its business goals deserve an assurance of continued employment."

A decade later, that number dropped to just 6%. As a result, people are increasingly likely to be bounced from their jobs, with ever more severe financial consequences.

In 1978, middle-aged men could expect to be with the same employer for 11 years, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. That's now down to about 7.5 years. Since the 1970s, the average length of an unemployment spell has risen by 50% to almost 20 weeks. In the last few years, laid- off college grads were taking a far bigger hit of 30%.

Millions of Americans have relied on two factors to help them handle the heightened (financial) risks of the last 25 years: the entry of women into the paid workforce and borrowing that has resulted in
more than 70% of mothers work outside the home, compared with less than 40% in the 1970s.

Women's employment also has meant new costs — for day care, extra cars, more meals out. And most families have treated the additional income not as savings to be set aside in case of emergency but as a means of raising living standards.

The traditional measure of household debt — calculated as a percentage of a family's after-tax income — has climbed from 62% a quarter century ago to almost 120%, according to Federal Reserve statistics.

Much of that increase is from the rush of mortgage lending during the last decade. But non-mortgage debt, including credit cards and auto loans, also has risen, from 15% to almost 24% of after-tax income.

There has been a sixfold increase in personal bankruptcies since 1980. Bankruptcy filings reached a record 1.625 million last year and were up again through March of this year. Two decades ago, they totaled 288,000. To read more the above-listed information, click HERE.

In a business that is not dictated by what nationality (Asian, Black, Hispanic, Female, Indian, etc.) that you are, your social status, the area where you live, how much you have and/or what your past history consisted of - if one has a strong desire to achieve one's dream - a personal invitation is extended to personally review the complete picture (pros, cons, pitfalls, benefits, work involved, etc.) of what is involved by clicking HERE.

If one is considering a home-based business, review some suggestions on how to successfully achieved financial freedom.
First Item - ignore the home-business opportunity ads; there are no shortcuts to starting a successful home-based business. By following the six steps outlined below (supplied by About.Com's Guide to Small Business), you'll end up with an idea for a home-based business that truly has the potential to succeed, bringing you the money and the satisfaction you've been dreaming of.

Immigrants are more likely to be entrepreneurs than native-born Americans, according to the annual national assessment by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Missouri. Approximately 350 per 100,000 immigrants started a business each month of 2005 compared with 280 per 100,000 native-born Americans. For more info, click HERE

The best home-based business is the one you start with your own two hands. The secret of success is not to stop halfway through the business selection process as so many people do that won't just being a drain of your time and money.

Before You Start a Home-Based Biz
Operating a home-based business can give you the best of both worlds. Like all small business owners, you enjoy the satisfaction of being your own boss and being the person who makes the decisions.

In theory, you can run a successful business out of your home and have the flexibility to be there for your family, spending more time with your children or arranging your work schedule around your family's needs.

Working from home calls for self discipline and the ability to plan and manage one's own time. On the one hand, being your own boss means that no one else is telling you what to do. On the other, if you don't keep yourself focused and on task, no one else will..

If you do decide to locate your business in your home, it can be the most satisfying, exhilarating thing you've ever done.
HERE to learn more of what you should know before starting your own home-based business.

1. Assess your talents.
Think of your talents as the things you're really good at. They're like personality traits. For instance, you may be a very creative person, or a person who's really good at attending to details or a person with a gift for communicating. Your talents are the base for any successful business venture, including a home-based business.

2. Examine your skills.
The difference between talents and skills is that talents are passive and skills are active. You're born with talents but you develop skills over time as you learn. For instance, a creative person may have excellent skills for drawing or writing or design. A person who has a talent for attending to detail may have strong accounting or organizational skills.

3. Put your talents and skills together and generate business ideas.
With your talents and skills, what kind of home-based business could I start? When you're doing this exercise, you, of course, have more than one or two skills, so you'll find that you'll have various choices. Don't censor yourself as you list home business ideas. List all your ideas at this stage; crossing off choices comes later. For a list of possible options or choices, click
HERE. (Note: The options listed call for specialized training, as oppose to the training needed at alternatives such as Quixtar.)

4. Give your business ideas the home-based business test.
The fact is that not all businesses are going to work well as home- based businesses, and some won't work at all. You are not going to be able to start a manufacturing business in a residential neighbourhood, for example, and any home-based business that involves a lot of clients coming and going is sure to upset the neighbours. If you are intent on starting a home-based business where you actually get to work at home, also cross off any business that could be operated as a home-based business but wouldn't allow you to work at home. Many people who want to start home-based businesses stop here. Don't make this mistake! If you do, you run an extremely high risk of investing months of your time, energy and money in a losing venture and seeing the home-based business you had such hopes for fail. The secret to starting a home- based business that will succeed is to work through the entire business selection process.

Profit and Planning Are Keys to Starting a Home-Based Business
Figuring out the profit angle and doing a business plan are two important parts of the process of starting a home-based business – two parts that many people starting a home-based business don't bother with. But if you want to start a home-based business that will succeed, rather than just being another business failure that drained your time and wallet and left you disappointed, you need to pay particular attention to these two steps of the starting a home- based business process.

5. Figure out the profit angle.
This is the litmus test for anyone wanting to start a home-based business. You may have a great talent for something and the skills that enable you to express it, but if people aren't willing to pay you for the product or service, it won't work as a business. For each home based business idea, you need to know the answer to two questions:How much are people willing to pay me for this product or service? Can I make a sufficient income from that?

Many people put themselves in a position by starting home-based businesses without considering the profit angle. Business is about profit, and without sufficient profit, you'll never have enough income to even pay the bills, let alone generate wealth. If you are planning to start a home- based business that will provide all of your income, however, you have to research the profit-making ability of your business idea very seriously. Click HERE to review the profit structure of Quixtar.

6. Do a business plan to assess the viability of your new home-based business.
Many people are under the impression that working through a business plan is only necessary if you're going to be looking for a business loan. But the primary reason to do a business plan is to find out if your business idea has a chance of becoming a successful business.So once you've chosen a home-based business idea you're passionate about, start working through a business plan.

It's not uncommon to work through part of at least three business plans before you find the business idea that will blossom into the thriving business you want to run. Click HERE for more information.

Listed below are some stories of successful Asian/Asian Pacific Americans who have achieved independence by owning their home-based business that frees them the control of corporate management. If one is considering self-funding one's creative projects (i.e. CD, DVD, play, film, art exhibition, fund-raiser, etc.), the below-listed stories provide tangible evidence that success can be achieved based on one's own efforts and not restricted by other people.


Scott & Cris Harimoto
“I got scared looking around the office realizing that no one, including my bosses, had a lifestyle that I wanted.”

“I figured that if one keeps doing what he has been doing, he will keep having what he already has.

I wanted more, so I accepted the fact that I needed to change what I did with my spare time,” says Scott.

16 months after starting his own business, Scott was able to walk away from his profession to focus on the growth of his new opportunity.

Matt & Sandee Tsurda
Two weeks before he saw the plan, Matt sat down and had a heart to heart talk with his mom. “What should I do with my life, Mom?” he asked. “It’s going nowhere. Jobs aren’t paying and I don’t know where I’m headed.” For once his mother didn’t have an answer for him. Two weeks later, when Matt saw the Quixtar Sales and Marketing Plan, he got excited even though he didn’t understand it very well.

“I was average in everything I did,” says Matt who was born and raised in Hawaii. “I just did what everybody else was doing. I played a number of sports, but I also got involved with some of the wrong things like drugs and alcohol.”

Mike & Michi Woods
Although they came to the realization that what they had chosen for a career wasn’t really what they wanted out of life, the Woods had no idea what career could provide the life-style they sought. Enter: the Quixtar business opportunity.

“To succeed in this business,” explains Mike, “you take your eyes off yourself and you focus on others by helping them achieve their goals.”

With this new focus, ninety days later the Woods were in qualification as Platinum Independent Business Owners (IBOs). They now have businesses in 30 countries of the world, and there are thousands of IBOs in their group.

Leonard & Esther Kim
The American dream is reaching other parts of the world, this time through a very average Korean couple who decided to leave the United States, their home of 20 years, and return to their homeland of Korea to build their business.

Their unstoppable passion for success was their only companion. Four short years later, they had achieved Double Diamond and acquired the time and money to help others.

As they continued to help others, their business grew to Triple Diamond. Last year they became 100+ Crown Ambassadors.

Dan & Sandy Yuen
What happens when you match an “ambitiously lazy” man with a driven former farm girl weary of training men who climbed past her on the corporate ladder of success?

"My parents worked hard and did the best they could, and I saw how tough things were," said Dan.

"I was determined to avoid that, if possible, when I started a family."

Before they could positively influence others, Dan and Sandy first needed to change their old patterns of thinking, particularly when it came to earning money.
