Bites & Bites #231: Business - The Difference Between (a) and (b)

Sunday 10 January 2021


Happy New Year 2021 dear Readers. We are resilient beings and we will survive.

The impact from Covid19 is still far from over. Many lives and livelihood have changed drastically. Some friends have found 2020 to be a year of opportunity. But for many, 2020 has been a disaster, financially, professionally and personally. We took for granted that we can travel freely and patronise whichever restaurants we want. Those rights were taken away in 2020 and certain restrictions are still in place.

For me, I gratefully say that 2020 had been one of my most productive years, and a large part of it is due to my decision to do Shuang Hor Business. Otherwise, I cannot imagine the amount of stress I would have endured because I am not very quick at adapting to unplanned situations. Who knows, I may be one of those who lost my job. Or go into deep depression not knowing what to do with the endless boring hours being stuck at home.

However, Shuang Hor has taught me to be positive, to be creative, to develop and learn, to be kind and given me a group of friends whom I can count on. I have learnt many new skills and taken on challenges that made me feel like I have travelled the world.

Here.. may I share with you some observations below.. if what I share whets your appetite, email me at Let's have coffee..


If you are an Employee, you must be aware of 2 very cruel facts:

(a) The maximum percentage a company pays out as salary is about 30% of its total revenue. Even though you are a top performer, there is still a ceiling to your salary. No matter how high is your qualification, your income is decided by others. Your worth is determined by your boss.

(b) However high was your salary and however high was your position, upon Retirement, your income goes back to Zero. All becomes history.


2 key differences between being an Employee and doing MLM Business:

(a) Your Fate
As an employee, your fate is decided by other people. If your boss doesn't like you, no matter how hard you work, you will still not get that promotion or increment you deserve.
In an MLM Business, your fate is entirely in your own hands. The more effort you put in, the better results you will reap.

(b) Your Worth
As an employee, the older you get, the less valuable you are to your company because your salary is high but you don't have the energy to work as long/hard as young people.
In an MLM Business, the older you grow, the more valuable you become because you have more experience and as your network expands, you can share your knowledge with more people.


Shuang Hor Business offers you many possibilities, at different stages in your life.

(a) If your business is good and you earn a lot of money - take care of your Health. If you don't, 10 or 20 years later, as you age, you will surely need to start looking for health solutions. Shuang Hor offers some of the best health products I know.

(b)If you are retired or your business is not good, Shuang Hor offers you a business and another source of Income.


How do you differentiate a Pyramid-Scheme from a Genuine MLM business?

(a) A company operating a pyramid scheme rewards its distributors the moment they recruit new members. These companies may charge a high membership fee where they package some products together with the fee.

(b) A genuine MLM company does not make money from recruiting new members. Members are not required to buy anything and membership fee is minimal. It is only when we decide to purchase products that the distributors earn a commission from their sales.
