The Mystery of Ingredients

Usana is known for its potency and the guidelines it abides by for manufacturing. In my opinion if you are going to invest in something good let it be the best. Usana is not an organic supplement and the reason being is because many people are allergic to organic ingredients. Lyle McWilliams is a Canadian Scientist that did a study on Usana nutritional supplements. He is a third party that has done a study on over 1,500 supplements and compared them to each other.

If They Trust the Product... We Should To

Usana is a company that caters to a diverse population of athletes around the world. In my opinion it is the only company that puts its money where its mouth is. The reason I say that, is because it is the only company in its industry that offers the athlete guarantee and satisfaction with its product. The athletes that endorse Usana do it voluntarily. It is important that athletes find a company they put their trust in, that will back them up. And because Usana assures them that their product is quality they make the decision to consume the product. Their are many athletes that consume Usana products, pro athletes and Olympian athletes endorse Usana because of its potency and accuracy of ingredients.

My Business... Your Future

Well I have been talking about the small business sector throughout my blog. As an individual that falls in the 2% category of owning a business I would like to give you some brief information on my business. I work for the sector called network marketing, which allows me to have flexibility. Usana Health Sciences is a nutritional company that has been around since 1992 and is based out of Salt Lake City in Utah. The video gives a brief summary of the company’s products and how the business works.

Bureau News

I have been writing about people taking control of their lives and the statistics I found that were done by the Census Bureau surprised me. Americans are well aware of the opportunity that a small business offers to them and their families. A small business allows people to spend more time with their families and create a residual income. According to the Census Bureau at least half of businesses are operated from home. People are coming to realization that this is the industry to be in. The small business sector is not for anyone, but it can benefit just about anybody that sets their mind to it. Here are some of the people that are joining the industry:
  • In 2002, 64 percent of business owners had at least some college education at the time they started or acquired ownership in their business, 23 percent had a bachelor’s degree and 17 percent had a graduate degree. Just over 1-in-4 owners had a high school education or less.
  • Thirty-one percent of owners were more than 55 years of age, 29 percent were between 45 and 54, and 24 percent were between 35 and 44. Only 2 percent of owners were less than 25 years of age.
  • Fourteen percent of business owners in 2002 were veterans; 73 percent of those operated with no paid employees. Nearly 7 percent of veteran business owners were disabled as a result of injury incurred or aggravated during active military service.

Small Business Sector

People have seen many large firms disappear with the economic crisis. But how about small firms do we see small firms disappearing as much as large firms? In reality the small business sector is what generates most of the jobs "small businesses, particularly in the service sectors, continued to be important job generators, even as the economy began to slow. In the first quarter, they created 74 percent of net new jobs" (SBA 28: 2). This sector plays an important role in our economy and we must not ignore it. People have become skeptical to investing, but let me remind you that there is a difference between investing in yourself then investing in the future of corporations. The Small Business Association also states, looking forward from this recession, we would expect more entrepreneurship taking place; indeed, it may help lead the economic turnaround. Some self-employment will come out of economic necessity; talent and experience of workers being laid off will prod some of them to sell those talents as their own boss (28: 2). People will stop having faith in corporations and take control of their lives. People just need to be aware of which industries are having success and strive to start a small business in that industry. If you would like to read more on the following information the link is below.

Successful Industries

People are still worried about the economy. Although tax season is here and the stimulus checks are being distributed people will not use that money to spend, but rather to pay bills and save it for when times get worse. According to the Small Business Administration (SBA) the U.S lost 2.97 million jobs in 2008. According to CNN Money the U.S has lost 1.8 million jobs in the past three months. The SBA did state that industries like transportation, manufacturing, utilities, construction, professional, and businesses services were hit the hardest there was a job gain in education and health services. I think that people are seeing how bad the economy is and are making decisions to stay in school longer or return to school. As far as the health services, I think people are coming to realization that this industry will always be around regardless if the economy fails.

Jim Randel is talking about having success and the steps needed to take in order to gain success. Some we need little guidance from someone that has had success throughout their lives. Below is a link to an article that will outline the little steps one needs for success. I believe that if people really set attainable goals and a structured plan they can accomplish anything and overcome hardships. We all know that bad things happen, but we learn and grow and for every bad thing that happens there is always a positive.
