Actually Snowman (me and my shovel), would technically be the first Phase 1 (P1) Subsidiary, but I don't plan on incorporating that business any time soon. It does not have to follow the democratically decided P2 rules of Responsible Capitalism. The P1 Subsidiaries draft the P2 Conglomerate Constitution. The P1 Subsidiaries can choose not to upgrade to P2 status, and do not have to abide by P2 rules until they do. Both P1 and P2 Subsidiaries draft the P3 Constitution. Oops! Got way off track, but this will help refine the concept in your head, so I'll leave it.
We usually think of a pyramid scheme when someone approaches us with an "opportunity" to buy products and a system that will make you wonderful and rich. I've been watching a particular one for over a year now, listening to the audio they share, and have to admit I've improved as predicted. I agree with nearly everything they share, but still can't shake the idea that there's something wrong/evil in it. I can explain why it's NOT a pyramid scheme and feel confident defending it. But there's just something wrong with "Christians" who own yachts and jets.
I don't have a name for the Subsidiary yet, or know if it should be called a Franchise Subsidiary.
If you want to buy into this business, by accepting and not innovating the system (*Very important not to improvise, but always stick to the script), you are at the same time starting your own Subsidiary.
Every single person you've ever associated with, who you still can contact, and anyone you bump into in the future, can get "nestled" under you. Like in any network marketing business, the more people you get involved, the more money you make, especially if your recruits are productive for a long time. The problem I've seen is that the compensation (profit/bonus) plan is always complicated. This is how we fix that:
You pay 5% of everything you receive upwards.
Everyone under you pays 5%, and you pass your 5% upstream.
We sell information and motivation. The product is a more equipped YOU with the ammo to survive capitalism. We create opportunities and actively work to improve local economies. We go door to door to raise awareness and ask for money so we can continue, if our customers agree it is the right thing to do.
We recommend a minimum payment for our service, but ask for any amount our customers think the service was worth.
We try to recruit people who need work or are afraid of losing their job.
Most network marketing costs a few hundred dollars to get started with the system, and more to help your business accelerate. We will have a website with the materials we need listed for purchase (if you want it delivered), or the templates (and printing/material specs) to download for free. Go to your local print shop Subsidiary (your neighbor's basement) and have it printed there.
So where should all the profits go after reaching the top? Obviously to pay for the website and other shared operating costs. I think anything above that should be used by the owners of the Franchise Subsidiary for projects aligning with the mission statement, or just a bonus for the owners' hard work.
Can you think of any reasons this is a bad idea, or suggest enhancements?
