The dictionary defines a system as a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or an interconnecting network. In other words, a turn-key operation or a done-for-you business model.
Systems are designed to function in the same manner regardless of who's at the controls. His or her level of knowledge and experience are irrelevant because the system takes care of all the guesswork. At Ultimate Better World Solutions, we've built a couple systems that our customers rave about every single time.
For example, our Ultimate Publishing System™ enables just about any person with an idea and dream of becoming a published author to level the playing field and do just that. Whether they've written a word, paragraph, or chapters—our system takes whatever they've produced and provides the mechanism to get to the finish line in record time and less money out of pocket.
Our other system—Wealth Creation Through Done-for-Your Real Estate™—takes all of the guess work out of real estate investing. Imagine a system that allows anyone with a FICO score of 700 or more to join the ranks of the 90% of American millionaires who are making their money in real estate! Others have tried and failed miserably to duplicate similar levels of success for one very important reason: they lacked the team of experts who know the ins and outs of real estate investing. That's what plugging into our system delivers: less headaches, less risk, and more profits.
Another way to look at a system is the franchise industry. Consider how much resources and time it would take to re-invent the fast food business each time. Guess what? Someone's already figured out a system for that business model. All you have to do to profit in that area is to buy into the system. All the training, marketing, development, and more is already done. That's a system.
I'll end this post with a nice way to remember what a system is and why it matters: SYSTEM is an accronym for Save Your Self Time Energy and Money! W/henever you plug into a system—Ultimate Publishing, Wealth Creation with Real Estate, a franchise, or something else—you are sure to save yourself time, energy and lots of money.
Talking about time and money, that's essentially what a system does.
