unlimited talk/text/data plan tops the list for CNET iPhone user/reviewer.
The Solavei proposition is an easy one — unsurpassed value for smartphone users, and a home biz opportunity for anyone interested in extra income. Solavei offers a simple, no contract, $49 a month unlimited talk/text/data plan with up to 4GB of data at 4G speed, reviewed as top value in a recent CNET review.
Solavei is an MVNO operating on the T-Mobile 4G network. T-Mobile is revamping its system to add an optimized bandwidth for iPhone users, making the Solavei plan an easy choice for fans of the popular phone, many of whom (including the reviewer) pay $80 or more a month on contract.
Besides being an unbeatable value, Solavei is revolutionizing social commerce, offering users the opportunity to actually earn money, significant money, for doing what they already do — sharing information on a great product with friends and family. This social commerce model puts money into consumers pockets instead of the pockets of advertising agencies, media and big corporations. Solavei is focused on re-thinking commerce, even making commerce profitable for real people.
How profitable? Solavei’s nationwide launch was September 21, 2012 — as of February 11, 2013, members had earned over $5.2 million dollars! In the traditional business model, Solavei would have been spending that money to grow with big media buys, maybe celebrity endorsements, exclusive event sponsorships and the like. Maybe it would have paid off, maybe the subscriber base could have been built to where it is, but frankly $5.2 million in the world of advertising isn’t a whole lot to build a new brand, particularly because the data shows — NOBODY’S LISTENING!
But think of what that $5.2 million does in the hands of real people? That’s money that gets spent in the locally — maybe dance lessons for the kids, or an extra night out at the local pizza parlor. The most exciting part of Solavei is not just the savings on cell service — Solavei’s home biz opportunity builds people, families, communities.
All it takes is the decision to switch to a great value plan, and spread the word!
Deal with the employment uncertainties of a changing economy, and increasingly low wages from corporate America
Supplement or replace an income that is lagging behind the true cost of living
Have flexible hours, to spend more time with family and friends
Move toward financial freedom.
Two popular ways for folks to enter into entrepreneurial opportunities are franchise purchases and network marketing (often called “MLM”s or multi-level marketing, which refers to the multiple levels in the extended network built, which is the basis for the compensation paid).
The big difference is, of course, franchises’ start-up costs. Even these home-based franchise opportunities can have start-up costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars — yikes!
It’s one of the reasons network marketing and direct sales businesses are getting so much attention — start-up costs are typically very low. However, when evaluating opportunities do pay attention to the business opportunity requirements, sometimes inventory and “autoship” provisions can sink a budding network business!
The simplicity of the Solavei Mobile home biz opp is what is skyrocketing its popularity. MLM Rankings showed Solavei as having the highest growth in tracked opportunities over the last six months:
In its first few months since nationwide launch (September 2012), Solavei has skyrocketed as a home biz choice, and ranked 23rd on the MLM popularity list, ahead of long-standing, well-known companies such as Pre-Paid Legal, Shaklee, Empower Network, and MonaVie.
Why? It’s not your Grandma’s MLM, it is a new reality for product marketing! The numbers show, people aren’t paying attention to advertising, but they ARE paying attention to what their friends and associates are saying about the products and services they’re using. That’s the basis of what’s being called social commerce.
Solavei has taken it further — doesn’t it just make sense that when you tell your friends about your purchases, YOU should get paid if they buy? Solavei Mobile is a seriously great value ($49 unlimited on a 4G network, up to 4GB data at 4G speeds!) AND, they leave all that advertising and retail overhead money on the table, for people who want an extra income for telling their friends and associates!
If you’re leaving this kind of money on the table, ask yourself why…what has your phone company done for your wallet?
Almost a month into the New Year…you’ve set your goals, and now’s a good time to evaluate, how are you doing?
Doesn’t matter what the goals are, check in with these guidelines:
Check your goal — is it specific? Really? Is it so specific that you know exactly what it will look like, what it will feel like when you accomplish it, where you’ll likely be, what you’ll say, who you’ll tell and how it will sound and feel like to tell them? Practice that sense of fulfilling your goal, let your subconscious help you get there.
Does it have a deadline, and mileposts along the way? Of course!
Does it still align with the massive action plan that you committed to, to reach those mileposts and the goal?
Check, check, check? Great, time for evaluation and fine tuning!
So, what’s working and what’s not? As much as you can measure what results your getting from your actions and efforts, make a realistic assessment of where you’re getting the best traction and what needs to be dumped or revised. No judgment, just evaluation and re-orientation! Try to get it down to a science — X number of repetitions of this action yields this result.
Are you having fun yet? Seriously, if you are not enjoying the X number of repetitions that are yielding the results, you need to make them fun, or you’ll begin dreading your day which will absolutely sabotage you. If it’s an essential, then read some Tony Robbins and add a high positive trigger to it (basically, even if you don’t like the activity, you “charge” it with hugely positive thoughts or activities to condition your mind to link the huge positive charge and the action — it works!)
Accountability. If you’re not on track, figure out why, and don’t be afraid to bring in other people resources to help evaluate the situation. Look, we all have lenses — sometimes we see ourselves too critically, sometimes we see ourselves as victims, all sorts of faulty perceptions can be leading us astray. Ask for an “independent audit” — find someone who has been successful in achieving your goal or something similar, and share with them where you are. If you’re lucky and they truly care about your success, you will likely get a dose of tough love, which you of course will be prepared to accept graciously!
We all know the analogy — planes reach their goal by constant course corrections, too, so, use the end of this month to look back and look forward!
…and, if saving money and additional income is part of your plan, add “Switch to
to save money and start a home biz” to your to do list! At $49 for unlimited everything on a 4G network, Solavei is not only one of the best value plans out there, it’s a home biz opportunity, with a great compensation plan!
opportunities are replacing the old Industrial Age mentality about jobs.
This great infographic, put together by BusinessForHome.org, shows some amazing stats and facts about home biz in the 21st century:
70% of Americans would prefer to be self-employed
$427 billion per year is made by Home Based Business
There are 38 million Home Based Businesses in the USA
70% of the Home Based Business succeed within 3 years versus 30% of regular business
20% of Home Based Businesses make between $100k and $500K per year
The numbers indicate there is a real economic shift taking place, which makes sense if you think about it. The Industrial Age was all about economies of scale, the Internet Age is about the power of the individual.
Economies of scale wove itself throughout culture during the 20th century, big machines, big facilities, big capital needs, big people at the top, little people manning the oars at the bottom (so to speak).
Then came electronics, the age of big radio, then big television and with it, a big way to promote products and services…advertising.
But, along came the internet, and the Rise of the Individual (just my term). The scale of big is no longer a requirement for success. The internet allows direct, personal connection between any one person and another, leveraged to an almost limitless extent — one person can be directly connected to billions.
It’s a pretty astounding shift and empowerment for the individual when you think about it. Seventy percent of Americans want to start pulling the oars for their own ship, 38 million have already jumped ship, and 70% of them are successfully, 20% making it into the top echelon of income earners, on their little home biz!
is the perfect start for most people — that pot of money that’s still getting wasted on advertising that isn’t working is available for people who want to row for their own team, and the product, not only saves many people money, it is already part of virtually every household’s budget already.
It’s simple — $49/month unlimited everything on a nationwide 4G network AND millions of dollars being paid to members for being the distribution vehicle. All it takes to start your own Solavei Mobilehome biz is the decision to switch your phone service…
Unless your finances and your life balance are pretty much what you want, you really need to be looking at starting your own business, and legitimate work from home opportunities are a great beginning.
It’s why we’ve started our Solavei home biz:
It’s legitimate — the “vehicle,” great value phone service is easy to understand, the market potential is huge, and cell phone service is already part of most people’s budgets
Virtually no risk — if you already are a cell phone user, you’re merely switching your service to start your business, and you could be saving money just by doing that!
Great support — Solavei is investing heavily into social commerce tools for its members, to leverage the power of the internet for all its members as an additional tool for growing members’ networks.
Great compensation plan — Solavei pays bonuses of up to $650 for signing 12 members in the first 60 days, and the monthly income plan (from recurring monthly service) which pays you for virtually everyone in your whole network, leverages everyone’s efforts! (Toggle the compensation plan by clicking here)
You need this, your family needs this, your friends need this — take action!
is on the forefront of the coming tidal wave of social commerce companies.
In the first few months since the September 21, 2012 nationwide launch of this great value, prepaid mobile service, Solavei has become a community of over 100,000 members and home biz owners, and has paid almost $3,000,000 to its subscribers for sharing the concept and building the member network.
The philosophy behind the Solavei model has wide appeal — if advertising doesn’t work anyhow, why not take that money and make it available to subscribers who become home biz entrepreneurs, and who are already important “influencers” in their family’s, friends’, and associates’ decision making?
The brilliance of Solavei Mobile is the timing, the culture and the product.
The times – there’s no argument that this economy is wobbly. Good jobs are increasingly at risk, and any new jobs being created are heavily skewed to low-wage positions. With Solavei, subscribers are taking charge of their financial futures, alleviating the nightmare of lost jobs and job insecurity by being part of a community dedicated to bettering peoples’ lives. The big business model is badly broken, Solavei creates hundreds of thousands of small business owners, which are the real drivers of a healthy economy.
The product – is there any “product” more ubiquitous than cell service? In the traditional network marketing model, the Solavei “product” is an A+ star. The customer base is virtually everyone, it’s a recurring purchase, it’s ALREADY part of everyone’s budget, and IT’S A GREAT VALUE! $49 unlimited everything on a nationwide 4G network (T-Mobile) is one of the most competitive plans out there and it’s distributed solely through the creation of new, home biz small businesses — how does it get better than that?
Whether you’re looking to get rid of your nightmare of job insecurity or not enough money to upgrade your lifestyle, or whether you just decide you want to support small businesses with your spending dollars, Solavei Mobile is your cell service solution. It’s easy to switch, you can do it all online
Network marketing is the corporate business model turned upside down: a network as a home biz is successful when there are many successful business owners in the network; in the corporate model, there are few business owners at the top, and layers of employees, with progressively lower wages, on the way down.
In the corporate “pyramid,” employees have little chance of seeing real wealth. By contrast, in network marketing, individuals have their own home biz. By setting up other business owners, who in turn set up other business owners, the “wealth” flows across multiple businesses — yours, those who helped you get set up, and those who you will help.
Many people see network marketing as just direct sales, which it is in part, but I prefer Robert Kiyosaki’s view (Rich Dad/Poor Dad author) — your home biz network is an asset, it’s a business that works for you.
This shift in mindset is what sets successful network marketers apart from those who fall by the wayside. Those top earning networkers are focused on the success of new home bizowners in their network. When you see your network as a long term asset, this makes all the sense in the world — the short term financial gains are fine, but what you’re really looking for is income generation from a business.
So, helping others, in Kiyosaki’s view, has to be as important to you as helping yourself is. A successful network is truly a model dependent on everyone’s boat getting lifted.
Contrast that with the corporate business “pyramid” — those at the top receive the bulk of the rewards, and those at the bottom are employees competing for wages in the employment market. It’s a model that’s leaving the average worker behind, and I wonder why some people have such a poor view of network marketing opportunities. There have been some bad operators and some ill-conceived business models, but, do your research, and you can figure out which are solid and which might not be.
Building your own business is one of the few pathways to financial freedom, and the advantage of network marketing as a home biz is its very low cost start up cost. For instance, with Solavei Mobile, the cost of entry for most people is replacing their cell phone carrier with Solavei’s $49 unlimited everything on T-Mobile’s 4G network. Make that switch, you are your own business owner! Make it successful by truly wanting to help others save money and start their own home biz.
Solavei’s goal is to create millions of “thousand-aires.” Isn’t that a better business model for a vibrant economy?
…and start researching and learning about other choices you can make, other actions you can take, to align with your financial goals. It takes some courage to change, but as it’s been so eloquently stated, insanity is doing the same things and expecting different results!
On the “what you spend” side, two of the biggest budget busters out there are cable, internet and phone bills. The average “triple play” package (cable, internet and phone over internet) is $160. In addition, virtually every adult and young adult in the household has a cell phone plan, often with individual bills over $100 a month! Step one in making choices that align with your goals — do some research and learn about other options!
Cable/internet/phone over internet — of the three, the most “essential” is internet (if you’re a minimalist, surfing free wi-fi “hotspots” is an option, and if you really want to un-handcuff yourself from getting sucked into unproductive computer time, there’s the library!) Check out all providers for internet only — a good place to start is BroadbandMap.gov. Make some choices — do you really NEED cable and the upgrades, could you live with say, an Amazon $7.99 a month subscription for your entertainment? And that internet phone line — if everyone has cell phones, do you need that additional line? Something to explore, phone over the internet is called VOIP (voice over internet protocol). There is a device called Ooma which gives the virtually same service you’re getting, BUT, once you buy the device ($149 on Amazon), the service is FREE! Do check it out…and you’re welcome!
Finally, the cell phones. You will almost always save money by going non-contract! You do have to buy your own phone, but ask yourself, isn’t it worth saving money every month? Seriously, would you furnish your home through a rental center? Of course not! You know how much you’d overpay, it makes credit card interest look cheap! Well that’s the same economic choice you’re making when you sign your typical cell phone contract, to get a “free” phone. Do the math! Often, the sooner you cut the cord, even though you’re paying termination fees, the better off you are in the long run. (If you can’t bring yourself to pay those termination fees, sign up for our contract expiration reminder and we’ll email you 30 days or so before your contract renews).

No contract, just $49 UNLIMITED talk, text and data on high quality T-Mobile 4G service.
The Phone Decision –
You can buy a phone from Solavei during the enrollment process or bring your own unlocked GSM phone (such as T-Mobile and ATT phones). If you’re not sure your phone is compatible, dial *#06# then send, if it returns an IMEI number, you’re good — write it down for enrollment. (If it’s an MEID number or nothing comes back, it’s not compatible.)
Decide on your price point, but remember you get what you pay for! Ultra cheap ($30 or so) You can start with a basic phone, and upgrade with the up to $650 in Fast Action Bonuses available (for helping 12 friends switch in your first 60 days). You can walk in to Walmart or order online with Amazon — look for unlocked GSM phones or any T-Mobile phone will work. What you’ll get for $30 is voice, text and basic internet access.
Entry level smart phone ($100 to $150). Solavei’s option is the $159 ZTE Origin, other reliable manufacturers in this range are LG and Samsung. The features you should look for are 1) Wi-fi — this is a great feature! If you’re worried about coverage in a fixed location with wi-fi (such as your home), you can enable wi-fi and the phone will use that service for transmission and reception. 2) As high an android operating system as you can get — 2.3 or above is preferred. Here’s a link to a Samsung Galaxy Y on Amazon, you can also get it shipped to a Walmart store near you at walmart.com for about $140. NOTE: Phones in this price range are only capable of 3G speed, even if the T-Mobile system has 4G available.
Mid to high end smart phone ($200 to $750)Solavei’s mid-range is the $249 HTC Wildfire S, high end is the HTC One S at $529 (many reviewers pick HTC One S over i-phone). There are many options in this range — in the mid-range, most of the phones are not 4G capable, so if speed’s your thing you’re going to have to go up in price. Besides the Solavei phones, the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G ($500 on Amazon, $500 at Walmart.com) and the Samsung S III ($570 on Amazon, but may be an older version, $750 on Walmart) receive extraordinarily high marks from users and reviewers.
NOTE: when buying on a site such as Amazon, know some people have had some difficulties with the international versions of phones.Also, Blackberries and i-phone 5 are not compatible with the T-Mobile network at this point.
It’s simple — bring your own phone or buy one from Solavei, enroll
Prime your mental game for financial freedom, starting with your
home biz decision. Here’s a great technique for clearing some mental baggage and making room for success!
Henry Ford put it best, whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. You may have intellectually decided you are going to take steps to get your financial house in order, but does your subconscious believe you?
If you’re experiencing dread, anxiety, or procrastination when you think about what needs to be done, if you find yourself still doing all those things you know aren’t moving you forward, and are avoiding what you know are the action steps you should be taking, chances are you’ve got stuff going on at the subconscious level that conflicts with your new intellectual decisions. Over time and with persistence, positive talk and thinking will help, but here’s a great method to bring up and help neutralize some of the, frankly, insane thoughts that could be holding you back. Here are the steps:
Pick the new place you want to move into. I find it’s best to start this work with something really concrete, and frame it in the present. An example for me could be “I’ve gotten another three people switched to saving and starting their own Solavei home biz this week!” Notice — the language is, I’m there, it’s already happened (and for me, I like to affirm that it’s a new place that benefits everyone). Another example might be, “This first day in my new job totally exceeds my expectations.” Work with it — the key is it’s already happened and it’s great.
Identify and release attachment and aversions. (all credit to the beautiful Lester Levenson for this exercise, as currently taught by Release Technique and Letting Go). The process is simple, run your statement through four “lenses:” what do I like about this, what do I dislike about this, what is the advantage of this, what is the disadvantage of this, and let go of whatever feelings and body sensations come up. What you’re doing is finding and clearing subconscious objections to thinking you can.
Here’s what it would look like in my example. I’m in a quiet place, I take some deep relaxing breaths, I start with imagining that experience, “I’ve gotten another three people switched to saving and starting their own Solavei home biz this week!” I try to add as many sensory details as I can — where am I when I’m experiencing this, how do I feel on the inside, am I jumping up and down, fist-pumping, laughing, what does my voice sound like, what am I looking at, what am I touching, tasting, etc. Stay with it and adjust it for as long as you can, then, ask the questions, “what do I LIKE about switching three people to Solavei this week?” You might want to jot down what pops up, but most importantly note what changes in internal sensations come up — heaviness, tightness, anxiety, fear, and, as best you can, just ride them out, let them exhaust themselves (a tip — to help release the sensations, try “tapping” the fleshy, karate chop part of either hand). On to the next question, “what do I DISLIKE…,” “what are the ADVANTAGES…,” “what are the DISADVANTAGES…”
Hope you try it, and have great results, but remember, this is just clearing the space, getting to thinking you can. You still have to take action, and pay attention to what new insights or inspirations might come up!
