My Shopping Genie Review – Is It A Dream Come True?

Posted on October 30, 2018 in Uncategorized

It will soon be obvious that My Shopping Genie is no genie in a bottle or a pipe dream. It is a subsidiary of parent company My Net Universe Inc which is situated in Creve Coeur, Missouri, and that’s where this wizard’s story begins.

My Shopping Genie – Leadership

My Shopping Genie is directed by President David Freed who has a far-reaching history in direct sales and network marketing. In researching his history I found that he was formerly the National Marketing Director for a company called GMT (Get Moving Today). When I tried to access the company’s website it was no longer there. There is a lot of not so pleasant info on the internet concerning GMT.

Now just because GMT had its problems does not mean that My Shopping Genie is a scam or is involved with anything else that’s not above-board. Do not forget though what I’ve said in many previous reviews. That is when fact-finding in an MLM company you look at the age of it and the newer it is the harder you look at the leadership. Bruce Bise, who was listed as the President and CEO of GMTis now recorded as being the co-founder and master distributor of My Shopping Genie.

My Shopping Genie – The Products

The My Shopping Genie product is an application (genie) which you can download for free and install on your computer, then have access to just about any other product with an affiliate program. The idea or goal is that when you are shopping for something online the genie searches the internet for the best deal. Now it is free as long as you are just a user. If you want to benefit monetarily well, that’s another story.

My Shopping Genie – Getting Started and Comp Plan

Supposing you should decide you want to get involved with My Shopping Genie as a distributor it will cost you $199. Having become an IGD (Independent Genie Distributor) you’ll receive a distribution license with which you can give away free genies that will have your brand id encoded into them. When a shopper purchases something you get a piece of the action. That is as long as it’s a participating affiliated merchant and you’re registered with them.

With My Shopping Genie you also receive a tutorial program to help you get started. You get a customizable branding tool, an advertising system, a coupon creator, a business profile builder, a communication tool and a communication system. There is a $29 a month maintenance fee for your website etc.

There are 9 ways to earn income with My Shopping Genie:

Affiliate Commissions
Affiliate Override Bonuses
Genie System Sales ($100 Fast Start Bonuses)
12 N 12 Bonus Pool (Time Sensitive)
Dual Team Pay Commissions
Global Power Check Match
Diamond Check Match
Diamond Affiliate Income Pool
Diamond Power Leadership Pool

My Shopping Genie – The Bottom Line

At the outset I think this is really a pretty cool idea. I mean it’s an affiliate program for a lot (I would hope) of different merchants and products. I don’t have the time here to burrow down and see who they have on board and exactly what the commissions are. People have been making money with affiliate programs for a long time so that part of it is very appropriate.

For me you’re either going to be an affiliate or you’re going to get involved with network marketing. Not get involved with network marketing in order to become an affiliate. It doesn’t feel right to me for other reasons too but I’m about out of space here.

If you decide to get immersed in My Shopping Genie you have to come up with a way to find people to get on board with you after you run out of family and friends. You WILL need a mentor and a system

The bottom line is your success will depend on whether or not you can sponsor new people. The main thing you have to do is learn from someone how to market your business and generate leads.

President Obama Halloween Mask

Posted on October 28, 2018 in Uncategorized

Every United States President has had their share of fans who would like to dress up like them for Halloween in honor of their hero. Every United States President has also had their detractors who would like to dress up like them so that they can ridicule, mock and deride the country’s leader. This year will be no different with President Barack Obama, and the masks that are available to wear to carry out either the honoring or mocking as the case may be.

Made of flexible and pliant latex, the Barack Obama Halloween mask is the perfect way to cap off your own presidential look- stage mock protests, debates or other political shenanigans. You can gather together groups of friends and everyone could dress as their own version of President Obama, real or imaged. Consider this: a Barack through the decades: one could be 60’s Barack with a radical, militant look, and another could be 70’s Barack with a disco fro and bell bottom jeans.

Stage a presidential debate with past presidents including Washington and Nixon, whose own mask continues to be a brisk seller to this day for most Halloween shops. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your own imagination.

If you plan to stick to the basics and authentic, make sure that you are wearing a well tailored suit, and power tie with your President Barack Obama mask and that you pay attention to his mannerisms and speech patterns. President Obama has good diction and a solid command of the English language so there are no huge blundering gaffes or miscues to make fun of- nor has he had any major catch phrases that the spin doctors are ready to run into the ground.

For now, you can just wear the mask and go with the major historical fact that this is our very first African-American president ever. Love him or hate him that is something very special indeed.

Spend! Please Don’t Wait For the President to Tell Us the Economy is “Just Fine”

Posted on October 26, 2018 in Uncategorized

It was not to many decades ago when the na├»ve mindset of our country, and most countries, was that the President was “the good daddy who taught us right from wrong; fiscally, morally, and behaviorally”.

Here’s some news. The President is not our Daddy; and, if anything we are his. At least we are his employer. Many who have not worked within the confines of the Washington D.C. Beltway (I did for over a decade in media covering Capital Hill, The White House, the first Gulf War, etc), I came to realize a few things.

The most important one is that the Office Of The Presidency is not a very glamorous job. In fact there are only two main descriptions within it. a. Keep our citizenry safe and b. balance the budget. Though of course it is more ideal if our president keeps his zipper up while performing his duties, or not be inebriated and choking on pretzels while his two dogs look on, as long as he gets the job done, he has done what we elected him to do.

You see, he/she works for us, not vice versa. If we find ourselves in a “photo-op” with the president, it is he who should be excited, not us, as he gets to take a picture with his boss (one of us).

So why wait for the President to tell us the economy is okay. We know it is not okay as long as we are throwing billions of dollars into a war in which we do not belong. So be it. One day, we pray, he may come to his senses and start bringing them home.

Meantime, we the small businesspersons of America must continue doing commerce. Our clients and customers can still buy. Yes, they may be merchandise that costs less than they normally would, but that is fine. Just the very act of making a purchase, clicking a mouse, charging it on your debit or credit card (or PayPal), shows the rest of the country that it is okay to still buy goods. We do not have to wait for the president to tell us “things are going to be okay”. He is not our daddy. We love shopping for our friends and family, and no economy is going to change that, even if it is merely a card or a mouse pad or a hoodie, we’ve made a purchase, created jobs, and made someone else very happy.

Please don’t wait for one of your employees (the President) to tell you “everything is okay, lets start spending”; do it on your own, maybe he’ll get the picture, and know we are not waiting for him to tell us. After all, we are the boss.
