Here is the unique story from the Founder of the Mug for Men natural products:
As most of us men know, the occasional use of skin care consisted of us stealing our girlfriend’s/wife’s skin care products. But when a skin cancer scare hits someone as healthy as I am, the first thing I did was try to find a product that would make my skin healthier so this wouldn't happen again. But as I read the labels of the leading products, it seemed to be just a mixture of chemicals and being a health nut, that wasn’t going to cut it. I knew what went on my skin ended up in my body and I didn’t want these toxins in me.
So, I researched and tested and with the help of a skin care expert, found the amazing skin care benefits of Hemp Seed Oil with its Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, antioxidants and EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids).
I then added dozens of natural and organic ingredients (that don’t require a chemistry degree to understand) and the leading anti-wrinkle serum, Matrixyl 3000 peptides (clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles), to make it among the most nutritious skin care systems of today. In BPA-free aluminum 4 oz. bottles (no girly plastic bottle here) they are also among the most affordable products on the market. Try it and if you don’t see a healthy glow and less wrinkles and fine lines, let us know and we will provide a full refund. It doesn’t get much better than that! At 62 years old, I feel that taking care of your skin, staying fit both physically and mentally, being positive and grateful is the key to living a long, productive, happy and most importantly healthy life.
"Stay healthy my friends!" ~Kevin Kenneth Konczal - Entrepreneur/Actor

Do you ever wonder how top real estate investors can afford to buy flip properties while still having more money in their bank?
One of the answers that helps you leverage funding for investment properties is Hard Money Loans. With those, you can have a trust deed secured by real property equity collateral so you can more easily afford to buy that next real estate property which could turn out a substantial return. One other advantage is that Hard Money is a short-term, asset-based loan that's very suitable for investment and flip homes unlike conventional loans that are much slower to process, require more qualifications, strict guidelines and just more bureaucracy.
Normally, if you do wind up using private investors, there are many more advantages over using conventional banks - especially if you need faster cash for investment properties (both owner and non-owner occupied) OR business-purpose loans.
Such private money trust deeds are mainly powered by individual private investors who would have the same interest as you to have a secure investment with a mutual cash-out exit strategy. Those can also be private money wholesale lenders who would be able to help you with funding leverage for projects like: Land / Construction, Fix and Flip, Investment & Income-Generating Properties, Multi-Family unites as well as Renovation and Commercial Properties, Purchase Loans and Acquisitions.
1. Keep Building Networks
To understand the value behind building solid networks means to realize how important it is to have a network outreach that would be helping with ongoing loan/business referrals as well as team-building and recruiting. A solid referral network is a back-bone of any successful business. This means, you have to be able to build and maintain trusted relations with lenders, borrowers, real estate brokers, mortgage loan officers and loan originators, underwriters and even escrow officers or neutral parties that will help bolster your business. As the wise saying goes, “While poor people are looking for work, rich people are building networks.”
2. Never Stop Marketing
Mortgage industry can be very competitive since there so many mortgage and lending companies that wish to come out on top of the game. Many banks already have their own loan officers which creates a challenge for any self-employed mortgage specialists. To stay one step ahead, it’s important to advertise via such sources as social media, local ads, listings, website/SEO marketing and email campaigns as well as networking, recruiting, generating referrals while at the same time doing PR marketing with educational materials. Making interactive videos and writing blogs appear to be the modern trends of promoting yourself online while bringing educational value to your prospects.
Affiliate referral marketing is also among the more effective ways of staking out the mortgage territory to result in more mortgage and worker referrals. Asking current clients and contacts for genuine referrals is always a good idea.
Other methods of effective marketing revolve around scheduling meetings, considering that people trust more those whom they’ve met in person as opposed to just a phone call or an email. Localizing network campaigns is yet another smart strategy of nourishing those connections that are most valuable toward growing your business operations.
Having a very well-furnished, professional office will also help to “market” your business - especially when many of your clients and affiliates would tend to trust more those who have a proper office location with dedicated workers.
3. Maintain a Good Reputation
Among the most important ways of ensuring a successful mortgage business is to make sure you will have built up a great reputation that was founded on trust, credibility, honesty and reliable referrals that are part of a clean network in general. Having a good web-presence is a very crucial part of maintaining a higher reputation as it certainly reflects the amount of good will you had generated throughout your professional career. Always try to maintain a great-looking, informative website emphasizing your reputation clout, keep up with active social media posts along with ads and listings campaigns so others know you are reachable and approachable - but more importantly it is all part of reputation management that will help you establish a strong company presence with sources that can be trusted.
4. Learn from Top Experts
It’s been said in life that you can never stop learning; you are always a student of life. If you were to study among the top performers in the mortgage business, they ALL had great mentors who had shown them the ins and outs of attaining outstanding results easier with more efficacy and overall productivity. Top experts will be able to show you that nothing comes easy but it’s all worth it when you are using the right strategies and the best systems to generate more loans, more referrals and more recruits. In a way, you’d also feel humbled by the level of knowledge that you can acquire, which you would have to apply wisely onto various situations that demand your scrutinous attention. By gathering more experience, fresh knowledge and wisdom, it will then will make you more inclined to make best possible decisions in the industry where quality education and proper training can give you a major performance advantage over your peers. That level of humbleness will also leave you hungry for more ongoing education and useful knowledge so you can maybe one day be just like those top real estate & mortgage mentors who pass on their proven methods of success.

1. Higher Cost - Lower Profits
When hiring an employee, first, consider higher cost spent on labor + equipment + utilities + any benefits, worker's comp or liability insurance. This significantly cuts into the profit margins of a company. Due to such high costs that aren't just monetary, this is why so many companies either down-size or outsource or go out of business - especially when so many workers demand or prefer working full-time. There are also certain legal risks that most employers don't factor in enough. If a worker trips and falls at your own office, you'd be held liable for not providing a safe working environment, unless it was purely the worker's negligence. The opposite is true for when you hire a company/contractor who has their own office/work space for which they are solely responsible.
Best Alternative: By hiring another firm or having someone work from a remote office, it greatly diminishes employer's liability while maximizing profit margins based on significant savings from not having a full-time employee. Instead, a marketing contractor or marketing company absorbs part of your cost of production and overhead/operation.
This makes it a WIN-WIN for both - the employer and the contracting firm since the contracting firm would not be forced to be working out of an employer's office as they'd already have a professionally optimized work space that would be considered as if an "extension" of the employer's office space but only with minimal liability-cost and a different company name for reputation protection...
2. Lack of Skills - Lack of Resources
More often than not a typical job seeker shows up without substantial skill-sets that would render a more diverse labor capacity to be a more autonomous worker. Every employer loves to have a knowledgeable, skillful worker who can work independently without being micromanaged. Unfortunately, in most work places it is not the case. It's not uncommon for a job-seeker to show up with no business connections, insufficient experience and no valuable resources to bring to the table.
Best Alternative: Professional contractor or a competent firm would already have sufficient resources, pre-established business networks (to grow the business), more skilled/more talented labor with more hands-on experience and better quality of work in general. This is called "pre-trained labor" that you don't have to train too much unlike an in-house worker. This results in more labor efficiency, more productivity and ultimately higher gains from having someone who understands autonomous synergy and thus can still work well with your team even from another office.
3. Slow Business Development
Ever tried hiring an employee only to realize that they have zero enthusiasm for making your company more successful? - Those types of employees tend NOT to care about your company and would rather care more about paying their bills. Of course, there is nothing wrong with trying to be able to afford a stable living so you can take care of your family and your lifestyle. But when it comes to giving it 100% quality effort and to have sheer dedication to consciously care about your company's progress, company mission and business development - it takes a special worker OR another company that has a vested interest in making your business more prosperous through the most effective strategies.
Best Alternative: In comparison with other types of work, business development requires a much higher intellectual capacity and more labor-support + funding leverage with the most effective ideas mapped out by the smartest business strategies that create short-term and long-term profitability along with high value proposition. Someone who has experience with these aspects of building a business would be be able to assist and consult on the best measures toward a faster, wiser business development process. Generally, those aspects are best to be handled in collaboration with an outside company (like a strategic alliance) so that both firms can potentially grow together.
As companies grow and develop together, they can cross-leverage mutual resources and even capital to attain more economic efficiency and prosperity. Unlike an employee who is not employed at will and is subjected to employment protection laws, a company/business has greater incentives to perform at a higher quality level in order to be renewed for more long-term collaborations and contracts leading toward mutual success.
4. Constricted Ideas - No Innovation
As we all know, once the company runs out of new ideas/stops innovating, competition can then easily surpass them in quality, affordability, viability and market dominance. This can easily make any business go extinct unless only best ideas get deployed in order to improve and adapt. In most companies, it is almost taboo to come up with something original and something profitable since these kinds of decisions are normally made at the very top executive level. If some employee dared to come up with something more advanced, more lucrative and more practical, it may get resented by the upper management because the ideas are not coming from the management itself, therefore creating a "superiority complex" in the constricted work-force.
Best Alternative: Unlike typical employees, certain companies and contractors not only have more innovative free flow of ideas but they may also have investor resources and extra PR clout to launch newer products/services and ventures. Innovation is not an easy skill to find; chances are, you will not find the next pioneer/innovator unless you expand your horizons to utilize other company's connections and valuable network resources. Chances are, they may know someone whom you'd like to employ for their innovation skills & experience. In addition to being "innovation goldmines", companies can connect you with talented/skilled labor that you need for your staffing/recruiting & team-building purposes.
Let's say there is some company that will have the best, most lucrative ventures on the market.. Under the employee agreement, workers naturally cannot do too much innovation due to a legally restricted scope of employment that defines their daily tasks being assigned by the manager. However, a company-contractor has the means to be very innovative as the scope of employment is mainly defined by what the contract-agreement stipulates PLUS it tends to be a lot more expansive in terms of creativity and more adjustable for negotiations... That means companies can theoretically form joint ventures, alliances, collaborations, partnerships, equity deals, revenue and profit-sharing, investment deals, extra commissions, residuals, royalties, etc...
5. Office Politics - Work Inefficiency
It's mainly due to complex office politics and the time people spend socializing and playing up to their supervisors in order to keep their job. In addition to their daily work-load, workers would also have to keep thinking about the political strategies to win favoritism and job security - all of which can create a more stressful environment with unnecessary distractions and mindless games (let alone those people who are difficult to work with)... Some managers allow their longer-distance workers to telecommute, which overall reduces stress and social friction, therefore resulting in positive efforts allocated toward more work. Basically, it all comes down to positive VS negative work environment that can impact individual's work ethic and productive efficiency.
Best Alternative: This is exactly where 'work from home' actually wins out over the work in communal office. Studies have proven that assuming someone has a decent home office environment, those workers scored marginally higher on productivity than those working from the corporate office. Surprisingly, home office workers also scored higher on health tests, confirming that it was likely due to less sedentary lifestyle, less stress and less fast food.
If not work from home, the other best alternative is to have a competent contractor or a professional marketing firm somewhere local in the same city or at least in the same country (without outsourcing to overseas). This way, there is still control and assurance from an employer's stance while at the same time it would boost work efficiency focus based on not caving into culture clashes and complex corporate politics.
Bottom Line: Hiring a competent company and/or a professional contractor (who is not an employee being forced to work in-house) IS a wiser choice that will result in a more successful business operation powered by higher productivity, better efficiency, higher profitability / lower cost, low liability/risk, more flexibility, more labor autonomy / less micromanagement, better quality of work + innovation and finally more mutual synergy...
