Jeff Shavitz on The Power of Residual Income: You Can Bank On It!

Jeff Shavitz on The Power of Residual Income: You Can Bank on It! details the vast differences between residual/recurring income and transactional revenue. Having experienced both business models, Jeff uses real-life examples from his payment-processing career (a residual-based business) in contrast to his promotional products business (a transactional-based business). This book will highlight how to “work smarter” and develop wealth as you navigate through your professional career.

Residual income is the holy grail for any business. It is the opportunity to make money while you sleep, vacation or just want to take time off. It’s making money you can count on! Residual income provides business people the power of earning money and accumulating wealth.

Residual income is very powerful – but don’t take it for granted; as long as you keep your customer, residual income will keep coming to you. As Jeff Shavitz eloquently states, “You want a raise? Then sell more.” Which enables you to continue to earn additional recurring income in perpetuity. Pursue industries and products/services that lend themselves to a residual-based model, that will provide you with the long-term monetary gain from that one initial sale. How exciting to continue to earn money years later from that hard work!

Financial freedom is achieved when recurring income is greater than your monthly expenses. Residual income allows us to live the American Dream!

Jeff Shavitz on Networking: Get Connected

Entrepreneurs and business owners of companies of all sizes must understand how to properly network to grow their organizations. Networking isn’t like reading a financial statement, where the return on investment (ROI) is the overriding concern in the transaction. Networking involves what Jeff Shavitz likes to refer to as a “return on time” (ROT). Networking uses “time” to cultivate genuine and authentic relationships that eventually nurture into powerful business partnerships – it doesn’t just happen overnight.

Attending that “networking event” today, which seems like a waste of time, could easily lead to new relationships six months or even a year later, the types of relationships that will carry your enterprise to an entirely new level. Given the enormous opportunities to build relationships and networks using offline and online social media techniques (LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.), it’s easier than ever before to build your custom-made network.

Learn more from Jeff as he encourages you to get out of your comfort zone – to meet people not like you. This THiNKaha book will be your guide to the realization that most powerful asset you have is your network of family, friends, and business associates – it is about relationship building, after all.
