Is coffee really the right product for a home business?

Why wouldn't it be?  Second only to water, it's the most popular beverage on earth.  In fact, it's in such high demand that there's about to be a shortage of the premium brands soon.

A coffee shortage is inevitable (and could be here within three to five years) due to soaring consumption.  That's because coffee shops are springing up everywhere and they are hugely popular.  The 'problem' is that people's tastes are being refined and they are searching for higher quality coffee.  There's nothing wrong with that, but the very best coffee beans aren't harvested from massive farms.

High quality coffee tends to be made from arabica, which is grown at very high altitudes on farms that are often less than a hectare in size and have low yields.   It's more of a designer product, and these small, fragmented farms are dotted all around Latin America and Ethiopia.

Americans and Europeans are (more and more) becoming coffee connoisseurs – and like fine wine, people want to learn about how it's made and what to drink.  That's great, but expect prices to start rising soon.  It's the law of supply and demand.

Unlike with wine or other high value commodities (where you can get your price), coffee growers are living in poor regions in the tropics and they take what they can get.  Coffee prices, in real terms, haven’t gone up in years so it is becoming less worthy of farmers' time to grow coffee.  That's going to change, though.

So what does all this mean?

1)  Demand is stronger than ever and continues to grow.

2)  You don't have to buy a commercial lot, build a coffee shop and hire staff to have your own coffee business.  You can do it all from home with Organo Gold premium coffee (and tea).

Can drinking coffee improve your health?

It seems likely.  Apparently drinking 3-4 cups a day (regular or decaf) could help you live longer - perhaps quite a bit longer.

The truth is that no one is really sure why this is so.  There's a certain amount of mystery surrounding why coffee does what it does, regarding the measurable health benefits of its consumption.  However, it's becoming a more and more agreed upon fact that the more of it your drink, the better off you are from a health standpoint.

The bottom line is that the more you drink, the longer you'll live.

In a 2012 mortality study of 400,000 people printed in The New England Journal of Medicine, coffee drinkers had between 6 and 16 percent fewer deaths.  Likewise, in a Japanese study printed in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, coffee drinkers were 24 percent less likely to die during a 19-year follow-up.

The ideal amount appears to be about three to four cups a day of regular or decaf, but one study involving six cups a day saw a 33 percent reduction in diabetes diagnoses.  Other maladies positively affected by coffee include liver cancers, fatty livers, alcoholic liver disease, heart disease, stroke, depression, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. 

We call Organo Gold a 'healthy coffee' because all of our coffee flavors are infused with the (tasteless and odorless) 'King of Herbs', Ganoderma.  So if you're going to drink coffee for your health, why not go all the way and switch to Organo Gold?  Your body will thank you... and you can even make a profitable business out of it.

Avoiding germs and bacteria: another advantage of Organo Gold coffee

As of this writing, I still work in a hospital part-time.  Because I get there quite early (and am sometimes there at night), I always carry my coffee with me.  Since most of Organo Gold's coffee types and flavors come in small, pre-brewed packages (or 'satchets'), it's very convenient to keep a few in the pockets of my scrubs.

Another reason for this is germs and pathogenic bacteria.  Hospitals are swarming with both.  My department (radiology) has a break-room with a coffee pot.  Unless you personally wash it, there's no way to know when the last time anyone else did that either.

The fact is that bacteria loves coffee almost as much as office workers do.  There can be close to 70 different strains in the machine's drip tray, inside the pot or on its handle.  When it contacts your hand, then it's going to be on the donut that you brought with you as well.

Now that coffee pot in the break-room isn't going to be as hideously toxic as that dishwashing sponge in the sink, but it's still a warm and wet environment - the kind in which bacteria thrive.

So what's the solution?  I've already said it.  Bring your own coffee and (of course) share it with others!

If your work isn't fun, you're not doing it right

It's also possible that you're in the wrong line of work.

Great achievements, along with virtues such as humility, often come from a child-like sense of curiosity, play, lack of fear and innocence. 

In other words, success is a result of not being afraid to have fun in whatever it is that you do.  You'd be surprised at what an un-cluttered mind can accomplish. 

Here are a few examples of what I mean:

Mozart found his passion when he finally escaped the adulthood of a steady job in Salzburg, for the virility of Vienna.  There, he wrote and commanded operas, orchestras, singers and actors.  Though known for his playfulness, and sometimes child-like behavior, he created Don Giovanni, the opera that changed every piece of music that ever came after.

Marie Curie found her passion, like so many of us, by playing with things she encountered in nature - like rocks.  Why did some rocks seem to be like the sun (with their own source of light), when all else around them was pitch dark?  Like a child, she held them in her hand, looked hard at them and even threw them.  In other words, she studied them with playful curiosity.

Mick Jagger had no musical talent at all but would collect blues records from America.  He and his childhood friend, Keith Richards, would lie around listening to them.  When his parents sent him off to study at the London School of Economics, he was still listening to those records and scribbling down lyrics rather than paying attention to concepts like 'supply and demand'.

Mary Shelley wondered what it would be like if a machine had intelligence. She day-dreamed about it.  She called her machine the Frankenstein monster and made up stories about how people would treat such a hybrid human/machine.

The moral of the story:  Don't over-think things and truly enjoy what you do.

The second major leadership position in Organo Gold is the 'Ruby' level

Why do you want to get Ruby done?

When you do, you have really and truly arrived.  The Sapphire level was (and is) great, but Ruby is much better.

Here's why:

1) You get paid 7 different ways!

2) Your sales volume matches that of the average Starbucks but you won't have their hours, their overhead, or their headaches!

3) You're looking at the very real possibility of never having to work for someone else EVER again.

4) In North America, you get your Mercedes Payment made by Organo Gold - and you get to pick a new one at Ruby!

5) You get paid on EVERY single cup of Organo Gold coffee (and tea) that is re-ordered throughout the world!  It's called 'profit sharing', and every Ruby is a part of that.

6) You get to impact a whole lot of lives!

Leaders do very well with OG because the company wants to reward people who make decisions quickly and act on those decisions.  Those rewards show that they are committed to your success.  Those are definitely the type of people I want to work with and who will get the best results from this program.

Is it a lot of hard work to become a Ruby?  'Hard' vs 'Easy' is different for everybody.  What it does take is plenty of action.

Just remember this:  One day, when wealth no longer matters to you, you’ll realize that what was important in life was the people that you met, knew, and loved, and the experiences that you had with others.  It won’t be about the wealth you created while working long hours on your own.  It will be about the legacy you leave in the people that you loved and helped.

Ganoderma is becoming even more popular

China is still a communist country, but they're figuring out that when nobody (except the government) owns anything, then nobody cares about anything.  That's why it's good to hear that they've enacted better land-use policies.

It's interesting that one of the best-paying crops is the 'King of Herbs' - Ganoderma.  The Chinese have held it in high regard for over 1,000 years and all Organo Gold products are infused with it.  In fact, we call it 'The Treasure of the Earth'.

Since Organo Gold coffee and tea is sold all over the world, and the processing plant is in China, it creates an outstanding and profitable market for this cultivated herb.  That's good for everyone who enjoys its benefits, it's good for farmers and it's good for the forests.

Jim Rohn's 'Ant Philosophy'

The late Jim Rohn is one of my heroes.  He was excellent at everything he did, and what he did was tell stories.  They're short and worth reading.  I've always like this one: 

"Over the years I've been teaching kids about a simple but powerful concept - the ant philosophy.  I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy, and here is the first part: ants never quit

That's a good philosophy. If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they'll look for another way. They'll climb over, they'll climb under, they'll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy, to never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go.

Second, ants think winter all summer. That's an important perspective. You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather their winter food in the middle of summer.

The third part of the ant philosophy is that ants think summer all winter. That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here.” And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can't wait to get out.

And here's the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can. What an incredible philosophy, the “all–you–possibly–can” philosophy.

Wow, what a great philosophy to have - the ant philosophy. Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can."  ~Jim Rohn
