70-20-10 Rules To Wealth…What is the 70-20-10 Rule?

70-20-10 Rules To Wealth

What is the 70-20-10 Rule?

To answer this question it’s pretty straight-forward, which means setting a budget, living on that budget, by also saving.

More like this 70 percent you live on and food, rent, clothing, etc.

20 Percent is what you use to pay down any debt’s you may have, by also setting up a debt repayment plan (We will get into this a little later on), then by monitoring your debt and not add any further debt, but setting a time frame and a plan to follow you will surely be able to watch your debt load decrease.

But by watching your Wealth increase.

Pay Yourself First which is where the 10 percent comes in handy, this is what you should have a savings account for and watch as it grows and grows.

But your savings should be the type of savings account with a good interest rate, where by it will compound over time, more like the Return on Investment should, bring you one step closer to your, wealth building goal.

Now to say that this is all there is to it because no it’s not, not by a long shot.

The real point is having something where you have a system and manage your income and your expenses.

But also for 10% that you will use later down the line you will want to have this work for you, which means you will need to invest a portion of this in other investments which will bring in more value to add to your wealth building empire.

We will discuss this further some more articles in the future and we will go through all of this and also recommend some helpful resources where you can learn more on your personal finances or money management.

Please if you feel that this was helpful in some way, let us know by commenting about it and letting us know.

Why Compete with Other Resellers in the Marketplace?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007


How can you compete with other resellers who are selling the exact same product for the exact same price to the exact same market? It’s actually easier than you might think!

First, remember that 90% of all people who hold the same resell rights license that you hold either won’t market the product at all, or won’t market it correctly. This essentially means that only 10% of those who have resell rights to the same product are in competition with you. However, it really doesn’t matter how competitive the market is or how many other resellers there are for the same product. When it is all said and done, the only thing that really counts is how the product is marketed – how it is presented to the market.

The first thing you must do is set yourself apart from the pack. Don’t concern yourself with what others are doing. Do your own thing. Do what works. Start by making the product as different as your license will allow you to. Change the package to include bonuses that others are not offering. Also change the sales letter. Make it completely different, and more effective than it already is.

Once you’ve changed the product and the package as much as you are allowed to, it is time to see what others are doing, to an extent. For instance, if you plan to market using Google AdWords, see what keywords your competitors (other resellers) are bidding on, and what they are paying. Either pay more, or bid on different, more targeted keywords.

For example, if you are selling an information product on weight loss, don’t use weight loss as your keyword, or any other common key words. Instead, use weight loss for men, or weight loss for women over 40. Narrow your market as much as you possibly can. You can bet that the majority of your competitors will not be using such care in choosing keywords!

Also use other methods of marketing the product. You need to Market to your own email list. Market to other people’s email lists. Write articles and distribute them to the article banks. Hold Tele-seminars. The important thing is to establish yourself as an expert in the field that is related to your product, and set yourself apart.

Discover How You Can Learn To Fish and Teach Your Team To Do The Same!

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

Discover How You Can Learn To Fish and Teach Your Team To Do The Same!

I am very sure you remember the old quote as follows:

“Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”

This quote has so many hidden ideas and plans and meanings behind it, but it’s simply put into just that meaning.

If I simply gave you $10 you can only eat for today, but if I taught you how to make $10 over and over again, then you will eat for the rest of your life.

This is more aimed towards your team Building side of your business or simply put you can implement this the way you would like to implement it.

Creating a team is a very useful way for your business to really to take off, please think carefully what I am saying here, because this is the reason why so many businesses out there fail.

They believe that they are only one can do their job better then anyone else, sometimes this is really true, but delegating work will play a key role in the Longevity of your business.

Business is truly a team sport, not to say you that you have to hire tons of employees, but to say if you are a start up and if you feel that some of the work, that you do not like to do and rather not do because you feel your time can be better, spent on producing more profits for the business, then by all means outsource the work.

Even though your budget maybe small think about the fact of you putting your time towards, more productive things as selling more, creating JV’s (Joint Ventures), or setting up a Autoresponder (Automatically will send info To your email list, tips or newsletter for your company) for you, to be able to stay in contact with your clients, either daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or however many times you feel comfortable, with your list.

So the Quote I would like to say is this below another way of saying it for Team Building as follows:

“Give your team a bucket of fish and they will eat for a day, but teach your team how to Fish and they will Eat for a Lifetime.”
-By Mr. Julio Mattos or by Mr. Mattos Julio

Or Maybe I should say it another way, which will make it more suitable for this article as follows:

“Give your team a sale and they will profit for today, but teach your team to sell and they will sell for a lifetime.”
-By Mr. Mattos Julio or By Mr. Julio Mattos

Ah you know the name thing, in so many countries the name more thoroughly said by the last name in the first greetings and then the first name there after, so if your name Julio Mattos, it would be more pleasant to say, Mattos Julio, a friend from Poland just so happen to tell me this, I knew about this.

But he recently returned from Japan and a few other Asian countries and told me about this, even it’s more of First Name and then last name here in America, other places, I have had many mixed reviews on this but hey if you think may know about out it, please by all means write comment or email us, we will glad here any and all feedback here at Mrjulio.com

Ok back to reasoning behind this article, I have prolonged it a for a while when I was younger trying, to do all of the work myself in a few ventures and trying to have a life at the same time.

If have ever worked on any project, job, or business venture, then you will know exactly what I mean, this is the reasoning for all new companies or we should call them start up fail in the first year, you try to shave off expenses because you are on a set start up budget and sometimes you have no money for the start up and so you have to everything yourself.

But you know maybe there are some people out there where you make a trade for their services or products, something you maybe good at, for example accounting, bookkeeping, computers maybe IT, you can offer to trade services, with someone that has the experience in something you really need, perhaps you need content and a writer or copywriter whose up and coming will be willing to trade with you, maybe you know a lot about website design and he doesn’t know anything or would perhaps be more happier to not know and he’s on a budget awesome, work out a deal.

Being Strategic and very resourceful for what you have and don’t have or know, you can and have to improvise also you must come up with solutions to the problems you currently have on your plate, and you have clear the plate with solutions, before the plate can be cleaned.

Think about setting up a team, join a master mind group or something like that, work with local small businesses and see if you work with them and you guys can set something up, you never know who you may meet and ask your friends if they know someone.

Wow, I just gave a bunch more tips then I actually intended to do here, ah I writing is the life for me.

Think about this when you are actually starting a internet business, or a offline business, think of ways to saving yourself the time and stress and money, as well as the return on investment (ROI, that can be made.

Let me know what you think about this and feel free to contact me, in the future we will be looking to be more resource for you and us, by recommending links to sites that we believe to be very useful for us here at MrJulio,com

Have a very pleasant day.

What a Fantastic Day for a Change in Your Life!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

What a Fantastic Day for a Change in Your Life!

As we all tend to be students in our day to day lives, no matter how we think of and if we think of it at all.

Each day you get the opportunity to wake up it allows for you, to gain yet another experience from the company you work at or the people you work with, to that of the people who serve you lunch where you go eat.

We all have these experiences of differences and yet we all are talking to someone else on a daily basis even to say hello and how are you doing, these are still part of a moment in time and then the change bug comes and it’s the end of day and time to clock out before going home.

Every day we seek to fill the void that we have of in our lives, sometime we are happy, sad, mad, or have low self-esteem but what do we lack I mean truly.

If we no longer had to work, would we know what to do with ourselves?

Let’s give you a short example of this, in a little story show we.

Let’s say for instance throughout most of the world my name would be pronounced Mr. Mattos Julio R but in the United States it would pronounced First Name Julio Middle: R. Last Name: Mattos or pleasantly Mr. Julio R Mattos or most people go by their last name Mr. Mattos or Dr. Mattos, or something like this.

So let’s say I had all the money I could ever need in my lifetime and I never had to worry about money again, hmmm…What would Julio Mattos Do?

Ah now we are getting somewhere first off I would definitely know what to do, I will fulfill the goals I have longed for and it will be to travel more freely and take plenty of pictures and visit different countries and meet new people, get the feel of the local culture and the different ways people live their lives.

I would write a journal for each of the places I visit and will take pictures of each of the places, I will live life suited for which I will be living eventually, but that would only be part of that long journey we call life and you may ask will I be happy yes I would be.

I would also improve my linguistic skills and will try to speak at least a little by little in different languages and sometimes this quite useful by knowing at least a little bit of other languages, also how to pronounce the different vocabularies and this will also allow for my mind to stay sharp over a long period of time.

At any case that just a few things I would do.

I could go on and on about what I would like and will be truly doing in the future, but we are talking about the magic word of change.

Life is full of change every single day and no matter if you are doing the same thing over and over again, you are still changing, because your daily habits and daily interactions will eventually change and so will your mindset.

What is the main point of writing this today, we all live daily and would things that we cannot acquire at the moment in time, because we do not make enough, or that we would but we maybe judged by others if went through with it, or something this caliber, or we procrastinators or his twin brother we are fearful of change.

Thing about this for a moment and allow yourself to truly change and you will open the door to a whole new world and being open minded will also help.

Good luck and I hope you will wake up and become a part of the daily change, that will move you forward or put you behind by being stagnate, or simply lingering like bad odor and not going anywhere.
