Rockport Glossary of Success

Rockport Glossary of Success If you are considering starting your first MLM business in Rockport, is it helpful to understand basic direct selling jargon.

Affiliate: A participant in a network marketing company. Rockport affiliates are also called consultants, independent distributors, associates, and representatives.

Auto-Ship: An automatic shipment (usually monthly) of products such as Xocai Protein Meal Shake. Auto-ship benefits the Rockport customer who doesn’t have to remember to place a new order every month.

Auto-ship makes it unnecessary for the Rockport distributor to store a lot of inventory in their home.

Compensation Plan: The structure which determines how distributors are paid from their own sales and earn residual income from the sales of the distributors in their downline.

Downline: The people who make up your MLM network. This includes Rockport entrepreneurs you recruited or sponsored, (your frontline) and the distributors recruited by the people in your frontline, and so on down the line.

A distributor’s downline is arranged vertically by legs and horizontally by levels. Your frontline is the first level. All the recruits under one person in your frontline is a leg.

Fast Start Bonus: A one-time compensation designed to reward new Rockport Xobiotic Squares distributors who start expanding their home and online businesses shortly after joining.

Network Marketing: Any business which allows participants to sell products such as Xobiotic Squares or services directly to customers. Most direct marketing companies in Rockport also allow participants or distributors, to recruit additional distributors. Network marketing is also called multi-level marketing (MLM), referral marketing, and direct selling.

Rockport distributors earn income from their own sales and also from the sales of their recruits.

Residual Income: Repeating payments earned from work done one time. Some examples: a writer in Rockport who receives royalties on an e-book sold on an online marketplace. A successful Rockport investor who receives stock dividends. Network Marketing is one of the best ways to create residual income streams in Rockport without having to invest a lot of money up front.

Fun Family Business In Port Clyde

Fun Family Business In Port Clyde Remember the days in Rockport when family businesses were everywhere? Did you ever visit a small grocery store where Mom, Dad, and kids worked together to stock shelves, sell product, and sweep the floor? Seasonal fruit stands, restaurants, handicraft boutiques, and dry cleaning establishments also attracted enterprising families in the Port Clyde area. You don’t see as many family businesses these days.

I have a large Xobiotic Squares network where the family business is alive and well.

Many of my affiliates have turned their Xobiotic Squares organizations into family businesses. They utilize all of their family members’ talents: website management, order processing, online marketing, and customer service. Running an MLM is a great way to help kids develop a good work ethic and learn business skills.

Even if you operate it on your own, your Xobiotic Squares business can certainly benefit your family. My family is happier since I became a Xocai Protein Meal Shake business owner in Port Clyde. When my network grew large enough for me to quit my day job, my spouse and kids celebrated. We spend a lot more time together doing the things we love.

It is a great time to start a family friendly career with Xobiotic Squares. Join my team today to enjoy the home business lifestyle. I can be reached at 801.437.5994 or

Hot Chocolate Is The Market To Watch In Port Clyde

Glen Cove Home Business All over the world, chocolate is a consistent best-seller. Rockport food trends come and go, but Glen Cove chocolate sales just grow and grow. In my lifetime, I’ve seen the following Port Clyde food trends boom and fizzle: frozen yogurt, designer cupcakes, panini sandwiches, bagels, Jelly Bellys, and juice bars.

It seems like there is a new Friendship pizza trend every month. How many different ways can you combine cheese, meat, sauce, and crust?

Chocolate, however, is a staple like bread, eggs, and milk. There are, of course, trends within the Rockport chocolate world. Some, like chocolate fountains, chocolate-covered pretzels, and chocolate covered strawberries, are still going strong. Others are losing steam; like chocolate-covered bacon, for example (did it ever have any steam, to begin with?).

How many global industries have such a loyal following? Even Coke and Pepsi are losing sales because of competition from energy and juice drinks. Starbucks seemed to be taking over the world in the nineties but has closed thousands of stores in the past few years.

Clearly, chocolate is a sure investment, but here’s the clincher; there is a high-antioxidant, low-fat chocolate that chocolate lovers can eat to promote health and well-being. Though it sounds too good to be true, Xocai Healthy Chocolate is that revolutionary chocolate incarnation that health-conscious Rockport chocolate junkies have only dreamed about.

Not everyone who eats chocolate cares about the health risks of traditionally-processed chocolate. However, there are thousands of Port Clyde people who are concerned about one or more of the following: oxidative cell damage, the heart consequences of a diet high in saturated fat, the evils of refined sugar, and the dangers of a weak immune system. As Lincolnville Center boomers age, more and more are cleaning up their act.

When I tell my Rockport Xocai prospects that they can continue to eat chocolate everyday if it is Xocai healthy chocolate, they order without skipping a beat. (I am, of course, their new best friend.) MXI President Jeanette Brooks says that the Xocai philosophy is simple: replace the bad with the good.

That’s the Xocai antioxidant chocolate business plan in a nutshell; replace the bad with the good. If you want to be part of a world-class organization in a recession-proof industry, call me today.

Healthy Rockport Kids Are Well Rested

Healthy Rockport Kids Are Well Rested

Getting an adequate amount of sleep is essential to the health of Rockport kids. During sleep, muscles, skin, and bones actually grow and repair themselves. The immune system is recharged during sleep, so this is especially important during the Port Clyde cold and flu season. Because the brain processes the stimulus and information it received during the previous day, sleep is crucial for healthy brain development.

Parents in the Lincolnville Center, Friendship, and Glen Cove areas should do everything they can to make bedtime work for their family. One of the most important things is for Port Clyde parents to model healthy sleep behavior for their children.

If you want your child to follow a consistent bedtime schedule, you’ll need to follow one yourself.

It’s also important to check out your child’s sleep environment in your Port Clyde home. What is the temperature and noise level of the room? White noise might help your child sleep better. Fans or humidifiers that can be purchased at any Glen Cove Wal-Mart, Friendship drug store, or Lincolnville Center Target store are inexpensive and do the job well.

Give your child a screen-free room in which to fall asleep. This means no TVs, computers, iPods, or cell phones. In fact, turning off all screens an hour or two before bedtime will help the whole family fall asleep on time.

Make sure you include the children in planning a bedtime routine and then stick to it. If they have trouble saying goodbye after you’ve tucked them in, try giving them a special security object like a blanket or stuffed animal to fall asleep with.

I’m Derrick Winkel and children’s health is very important to me. I enjoy operating my own Rockport home business that sells a nutritional chocolate product. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at or call me today at 801.437.5994.

Rockport Kids and Bug Bite Dangers

Rockport Kids and Bug Bite Dangers Healthy Rockport kids love to play outdoors, but Maine parents need to be aware of a potential danger: bug bites. The ability to tell a harmful bug bite from a benign one is essential to keeping your active Rockport child safe.

Flea bites are common in Glen Cove, Friendship, and Lincolnville Center. They appear as a rash on a child’s skin with individual raised spots that might have a puncture in the center. Rockport children will usually complain of itchy skin if they have been bitten by fleas.

Bee and wasp stings, also common in the Port Clyde area, can be differentiated by the number of stings. Bees only sting once, lose their stinger and then die, whereas wasps (as well as hornets and yellow jackets) can sting multiple times. Maine homes often harbor wasp nests under the eaves.

The sting of a fire ant will usually cause Port Clyde kids to have a red hive that may develop into a itchy, pus-filled lesion. Chiggers, which are tiny arachnids, cause multiple itchy red welts on kids’ skin. Check your local Rockport drugstore for itch-relief products and watch the welts for signs of infection.

Ticks bites will cause an uncomfortable redness on your Port Clyde child’s skin and may even swell. Since ticks can carry harmful diseases, you should contact your Rockport area pediatrician if you child has had a tick bite.

My name is Derrick Winkel and children’s health is very important to me. I sell a fantastic nutritional product for Rockport families. Call me at 801.437.5994 if you would like more information. Thanks for visiting my Rockport children’s health blog!

Fun Exercise Ideas For Lincolnville Center Kids

Fun Exercise Ideas For Lincolnville Center Kids

When I was growing up in Lincolnville Center, my friends and I never ran out of things to do, and most of our activities provided at least a little bit of exercise. I have fond memories of playing kick-the-can on warm summer nights and swimming at the old Lincolnville Center community pool.

Unfortunately, many of today’s Lincolnville Center kids spend hours daily in sedentary activities. Exercise benefits our physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps you might enjoy participating in some of these with your son or daughter.

Fun exercise suggestions:

  • Fly a kite (It’s even more fun if you sing the song from Mary Poppins while you are doing it.)
  • Wheels: bike, skateboard, longboard, inline skates, rip stick, scooter (don’t forget a helmet!)
  • Rake the yard
  • Hula hoop (The Lincolnville Center Wal-Mart carried them last time I checked.)
  • Martial arts
  • Juggling
  • Hacky sack
  • Badminton
  • Weight lifting
  • Hopscotch
  • Jump-roping
  • Tug-of-war

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Maine and like to share information about health issues in my blog. If you are looking for a low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate product that tastes like a diet-buster, call me today. I sell Xocai Protein Meal Shake and Xobiotic Squares, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy.
