A good reminder of worth, value and service ...

A lady wanted to purchase a beautiful handmade cake and spotted a cake maker who did absolutely amazing work, but she charged a good price too.

The lady thought that her price was way too high so she approached the cake maker and in quite an abrupt fashion stated "I want to buy a cake from you, but I think you charge too much!"

The Cake Maker was a little taken aback but replied "Ok, how much do you think I should charge?"

The lady replied, “I think you should charge “X” much, because the flour will cost this much, and eggs this much, and fondant this much etc. I have even factored in the price of a pan."

The final price the lady had calculated was a lot cheaper than the cake maker’s original price, but she said "Ok, deal. You will get your cake in a week".

The customer is very pleased with herself and she can’t resist telling all her friends what a fabulous deal she has negotiated and how smart she is, and that in a week she will have her gorgeous cake.

A week later a box with her cake arrives. She opens it and inside is flour, eggs, fondant etc. and even a pan.

Angrily she contacts the Cake Maker asking “How could you do this to me? I asked you for a cake and you sent me a box of flour, egg, fondant and a pan?!"

The cake maker quietly replies "My dear, you got exactly what you paid for, if you think that there is something missing, then you are absolutely right and you need to pay for it.

Moral of the story, when you buy a product or service, you are not buying just the materials and goods; you are buying the time, effort, skill, training, taxes, and daily costs of running a business.  But more importantly, the love, passion and dedication that goes into providing a professional service.

When most begin working, age 65 is seen often as the finish line - but more and more people are beginning to work well past that number in the hopes of maintaining the lifestyle and standard of living they’re used to.

Having the potential of creating ongoing income by continuing to do something you already are doing is exciting. The concept of earning money from multiple industries is a concept for the very wealthy, but with the evolution of the UnFranchise Business model anyone has the potential of using this principle with very little risk.

Starting a traditional business will normally put a lot of your money at risk and you will spend a lot of time trying to recoup your investment. Unlike a traditional business, with the UnFranchise Business you now have control of your income and time spent working your business. All this is possible without large amounts of money tied up in inventory or dealing with employees.

The world of digital marketing has blown up

Having a digital presence is more relevant and important now than it’s ever been

SHOP.COM Leaps Rankings in the World’s Largest Web Marketplace

We continue to be recognized for e-commerce greatness
One year ago, Internet Retailer released its very first Internet Retailer World’s Largest Online Marketplaces Rankings - and at that time, it placed SHOP.COM as the 43rd largest web marketplace for 2017. On that list, the company bested well-known retailers such as Groupon, Indiegogo.com and OpenSky.com. And now, after another year of phenomenal growth, SHOP.COM has jumped an impressive seven places to achieve the 36th spot on Internet Retailer’s 2019 list.

“It’s an honor to be on this list again, but this time even higher in the rankings.
