Work from Home Nova Scotia

Work From Home: Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is known as Canada's Ocean Playground, for many it is either their way to make a living to support their families or  used for recreation. (1)  Fishbuilding, Shipbuilding, defense and international commerce have always been central to the economy of Nova Scotia. (2) While some of the world's largest companies are located here, business has changed and this province is reaping the benefits of that change, where people, who are becoming resourceful are moving into a different direction than the typical 9 to 5 daily office routine.  For many it is as simple as getting out of bed and a few steps into their home office.

Are there legitimate Work From Home Opportunities in Nova Scotia?

When you think of the words “work at home Nova Scotia” it brings to mind a couple who live in this beautiful Canadian province,  Andrew Murray and Marie Torres, known to many as “The Marketing Couple.”  Andrew and Marie began their journey over ten years ago, right out of college. Originally Marie was going to be a lawyer and Andrew a professor, however they realized they enjoyed the way they were living their life together and decided to work for themselves. Their ultimate goal was to make a five figure monthly income right out of their home. Now lets face it that seems almost impossible for someone just getting out of college.  However, impossible is not a word you will find in Andrew or Maria's vocabulary.

Now when they first started, they had no money, however they decided that it was more important to give up in the short term to have for the long term.  It took a lot of hard work and determination to go from making nothing per month to a five or six figure income. For instance while they loved hockey they gave it up and spent that time working on their business and educating themselves along the way.  Andrew and Maria began to work with a couple of mentors who showed them that Entrepreneurship was a direct path to their future. It had all of the elements, large income, and flexibility and this was the way they wanted to live.

At the young age of twenty eight, Andrew and Maria became the top producers in their direct sales company, where they officially became known as “The Marketing Couple” and had become multiple 6 figure income earners, earning a quarter of a million dollars in 15 months. They began to work full time from home in 2004 consistently bringing home a six figure income every month, not bad for just hanging out at home.

  • Created their own Information Products

They both feel blessed to be able to work at home, spending time as a family and living in such a wonderful place as Nova Scotia.  While they could have kept all of this knowledge to themselves, they wanted to reach out to others and help them succeed also.  According to Andrew and Maria, “But Maria and I truly, passionately love helping other people succeed.”

Andrew and Maria began a journey over a decade ago and continue on it today.  You see they continue to excel in every area they set their minds to, they have not learned the phrase, “I can't,'  It is truly that entrepreneurial spirit; their passion to live life to it's fullest and of course hard work that has brought them this far and who  knows just how far it will take them.

The Fortune Is In The Follow Up

It's funny, when Andrew and I first started in the industry almost 12 years ago, all we heard was “The fortune is in the follow up.”

For awhile we ignored that because the thought of picking up the phone to make the intial call was painful enough, let alone making another call to get the sale.

Well 12 years later and having trained thousands of networkers generically, there has never been a more true statement than the one above.

“The Fortune Is In The Follow Up”

Without the follow up call nothing progresses – you can have no success.

Think about it, the initial call is just the beginning. People need to see things 7-12 times or hear from you 7-12 times before they make a decision. They have to be comfortable enough with you and the product to go ahead and take the plunge and yet most of us just pray that after the intial call, the prospect will be so interested that they'll just join without talking to us again.

If you are going to be successful in this industry, you need to bite the bullet and be systematic about following up.

And follow up needs to be done within 24 hours at the latest.

Think about it, most of the time you are doing some form of interruption marketing – prospecting a person when they least expect it.

Even if they are very interested, people are busy, and if what you are talking about isn't constatly in the forefront of their minds, they'll forget and you'll have to start all over again.

I mean, seriously, how much do you remember of things that happened 48 hours ago?

So Here's What To Do

It is your job, to keep them engaged in HYPERSPEED from the time you first do you intial call.

Some people say to me, “Well I don't want to push them…”

Well if you don't, they will most likely never come into your business.

It is no coincidence that people who are good at the follow up, are good in this industry. You have to have do it EFFECTIVELY!

Make The Commitment!

So make a commitment to yourself that you be vigilant about the follow up.

Do not let a day go by without contacting your prospect.

Unless they specifically give you a time that works from them, it is your job to force the time MEANING it's up to you to suggest the times for follow up that suit YOUR agenda.

For example, in my primary company, the first exposure tool I use takes 3 minutes – a simple sizzle call.

Never will you hear me say, I'll call you tomorrow.

The follow up to that first call is done within 5 minutes if I can help it.

That means within an hour – they've gone through the majority of my funnel.

Your main purpose is to get them through the process FAST.

Can you imagine if I left that for 48 hours or more?  Yet this is what most people do.  They leave it for a week or nore in most cases!

Trust me , your prospect is NOT going to remember a 3 minute sizzle call a week later!

The fortune is in the follow up. Live that and you will see your business change.

Visalus Review – Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge Review

Visalus Review – Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge Review


MamaNetworker Official Visalus Review

Hi, there…

So glad you found this Visalus review.

So here's the thing, people ask me all the time what makes Andrew and I (my husband is SEO networker, Andrew Murray) decide on building a company.

Because we get asked all the time to join the newest startups and companies because of our experience and reach in the online community, we have to vet a company more than the average person because of our reputation and current influence.

But here is my big thing, I have been around for what is close to 12 years building the internet/home business lifestyle so I've seen a lot of things.   I know what works and what doesn't and so I feel that I am completely equipped to make a sound decision and provide an unbiased opinion.

Visalus Review: So why does Visalus make sense?

For a number of reasons, and I'll explain everything in this Visalus review.

When Andrew and I were first approached to look at Visalus, I was very skeptical.  After coming from the top tier industry where you make a lot of money on each and every sale, I was weary to jump into an MLM type compensation plan.  I just felt that most of the time there was not enough money to made on the front end to warrant spending 95% of your time building it.

In fact, my first experience and several after that was putting in a lot of work and then making a measley $386 a month after 18 months of working HARD!  Not fun, and so I really did not want a repeat of that after being accustomed to making $1000 per sale.

But when I started to look closer at Visalus and the Body By Vi Challenge, I realized that it had a very balanced comp plan.  There was a lot of money to be made on the front end, and the back end to invest the time in building it.  The idea that someone could do between $600-$1000 there very first week in the business was astonishing to me and yet, you could see it was being done over and over again.  That made me look closer.

In fact, you'll see that people who start in Visalus can make that their first week and literally walk out of their first 30 days with a few thousand dollars if not a BMW.  And I know it may sound hypey but it's not and I'll explain why, just keep reading.

This plan also allows you to create that incredible residual and it's because of what I am going to explain next…

What!???  159K+ joined the 90 day challenge last month!

Next, I was amazed that there were 40K people a month joining the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge and most of these people were customers.

From a promoters standpoint, when the mainstream public are joining the company just to use the product and have no financial incentive, this makes for a sticky residual income for you.

Part of the problem with other companies is that the only people joining are those who want to build a business.  This makes it difficult to retain a healthy residual income that comes in monthly when you are only dealing with distributors.

This is so different in Visalus.  It really is incredible and has been one of the most surrising things about building this business.

The growth and momentum, the wave that we are riding gives us an opportunity like no other.

At the time of this writing, the number of people who joined the 90 Day Challenge was 159K+ in just the last 30 days, 13K of those promoters, the rest were purely customers.  That's huge.  Right now the customer to distributor ratio is 10:1.

Plus, Visalus is SO SMART that they have incorporated a 3 for free referral program for both customers and promoters.

So here's how it works:


For example you have a customer, just like a rewards program, if they get on the challenge, if they refer 3 people to the challenge they get their challenge kit for FREE.  This is an incredible way for people to spread the message virally.

I have many customers who share the challenge just so they get their challenge kit free every month.

On top of this, promoters autoship for free every month too.  All they need is 3 customers and who doesn't want to get fit!  It is such an easy sell which brings me to my next point.

Visalus and the Body By Vi Challenge is NOT an education based sale.

With most companies, you have to convince people that the NEED your product.  The next miracle juice, the next supplement they can't live without but Visalus is different – getting fit and healthy is universal.  The main media already promotes that message and the 90 day Body By Vi Challenge fits into that.  Everyone LOVES a challenge and who doesn't want to get fit and healthy.  It is a message that EVERYONE CAN GET BEHIND!

Plus, the misconception is that the Body By Vi Challenge is just about losing weight.  It's not!

The Challenge is for EVERYONE!  We have 5 different challenge kits for people to choose from.  So you can easily talk to anyone about the challenge.  If people want to lose weight, build muscle, want extra energy and nutrition, we have the kit for you.

In fact, we have done major trandeshows all over the country from health and wellness expos, to marathons and our customer demographic is extensive and has massive reach.  I have never been able to say that about any other product we've promoted and it just makes makingm oney that much easier.

Now the other thing people always ask me about is the management.

Now when I stsarted back about 12 years ago, I never understood why it was that important but after being a part of a company whose management drove it into the ground, I get it.  So our founders, Nick Sarnicola, Blake Mallen and Ryan Blair (bestselling author of “Nothing To Lose” and frequent guests on shows like Donny Deutch, Bloomberg TV, TED) they are innovative, and cutting edge.  In fact, did you hear that we broke the world's record for biggest simultaneous flash mob.  You can watch it here…but seriously, talk about being innovative and using social media to get the Challenge more exposure!

Truly, you've probably seen how theBody By Vi challenge is all over Facebook, and the Takeover Tuesday campaign (where everyone talks about their progress on the challenge) is in full effect.  The Visalus Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge is a MOVEMENT!

Now, I'm sure you've all heard about the fabled BMW at the beginning of the comp plan and I can assure you that it's there.

After being BMW qualified twice (Andrew and I both have one) it is incredible that Visalus puts it at the beginning.  Most people work years to even get to the car bonus and at that point any friend who would have been watching you, will be thinking, “well it's about time!”  But with Visalus, in the last 30 days, I had 5 people join me at the beginning of the month and get themselves into a BMW by the end of 30 days.  Yes, it's possible and very likely if you're working.

Now you may be thinking, “How can this be so easy, there must be a catch…” and there is…

Not really a catch but a concept – the most beautiful concept I have ever heard of in this entire industry over the last 12 years, the waiting room.  Yup, I really am that in love!

The wating room allows people to move volume under other people.

This means that we can directly impact someones income by placing volume underneath them.

Now, I have always been able to help my team in terms of marketing, that is what we are known for, but to help them with real volume, is incredible.  So qualifying for that BMW is a team sport, it's not just you.  And with us being the # 4 all time enroller in the company, we have the volume to move.  It is thrilling for us to be able to help our team this way and we are so thankful to be working such a dynamic comp plan.

This is the other reason why you hear of all these success stories come out of Visalus and how people are hitting the top ranks so quickly, even if they've never had any experience before.  The waiting room, love it!

So money on the front end, hitting the top of the comp plan in a few months, an amazing product that spreads virally, incredible momentum and growth — Visalus really is the company to beat.

I often tell people that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I really believe it.

The last time there was so much buzz around a company was back in the 80's with Nuskin and we are poised to be the only company to do a billion dollars in North America alone.  Visalus is the perfect storm, with everything converging together at the same time.  Usually companies will have one thing going for it but not something else.  For example, a great product but a bad comp plan, or a great comp plan but a terrible product and no customers.  Do you see how rare it is to have Visalus and to be able to build it right now, while it's in it's growth curve…it's a huge opportunity for people who see it.
