Business is booming for this couple and they are looking to help others experience the same success. They are looking for motivated money earners to share their knowledge and experience with in hopes of helping you find financial stability. This is a must read interview you will want to share with family and friends.
N54: Welcome to Nine5Four Magazine Mr. Jones, it’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today. Thank you for inviting me.
N54: Tell me a little about your educational background and work history. I spend a great deal of time guiding, developing and mentoring people. Educationally, I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from The Great Bethune Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida. I have used that degree to assist young people & adults in making positive choices and obtaining stability. Whether on the football field, where I’ve been both a player and a coach, in the classroom, the social service arena or in the business market, I have continuously promoted life enhancing opportunities that have proven beneficial over time.
N54: What was your motivating factor for starting your own business? After 11 years of tenure with the School Board of Broward County, I felt as though I would be safe when news about School Board job cuts began to surface. However, before the start of the 2010-2011 school year, I was informed that my position had been cut. I was completely caught off guard and unprepared for the financial hardship losing that job would present. Thankfully I was called back to work within weeks of being cut, but that scare forced me to reevaluate my status. I promised myself that I would never put my family in that kind of predicament again. So, I decided to search for a source of income that I could access at any time.
N54: Thus you created Nu-Source Revenue Management, LLC. What services does your company provide? Right! Our preferred vendor, Arise Virtual Solutions, is a Business to Business (B2B) Entity that only contracts with registered corporations to provide customer service to their blue chip and fortune 500 company clients. They will not hire an individual. Therefore, Nu-Source Revenue Management, LLC stands poised as an authorized Virtual Services Corporation (VSC) under the Arise Business Model to offer individuals, like the readers of Nine5Four, to sign up under an established corporation, become an Arise Certified Professional (ACP) and provide inbound customer service for these well paying clients from the comfort of their home. It’s important to note, that the ACP’s who work under our corporate flag are independent contractors who essentially work for themselves. Our IC’s make their own hours, work as much or as little as they choose and truly have the freedom to, as our tag line states, “make money on their own terms”.
N54: I understand that ARISE has received positive reviews from credible news outlets as well as from President Obama himself. Currently Arise is receiving a lot of press, especially with so many people being unemployed. We have posted the most recent video clips from news outlets such as MSNBC, CNN, Good Morning America and even the White House on our website. If that’s not enough to convince people of the legitimacy of this business, we don’t know what will. We invite your readers to check them out at www.nusourcerevenuemanagement.com.
N54: How long have you been in business? Collectively, my wife and I have four years of experience. Many people dream of working for themselves and it’s a lot easier said than done. Working for yourself requires a drive, persistence and tenacity that catch many budding entrepreneurs off guard. While answering inbound customer service inquiries seems to be a simple undertaking, knowing the inner workings of the business presents a vast learning curve. My wife worked as an ACP for two years prior to me becoming a VSC. Since we understand the business from the agent side as well as the corporation side, we have an inside track that helps us develop successful ACPs who experience both longevity and employment satisfaction.
N54: I think it’s great you and your wife work together in your business. What role does she play and how do the both of you like working together? Oh, she is really The BOSS!!!! My wife has been very instrumental in bringing the corporation to life. As the Vice President & Corporate Secretary, she is the backbone of the company. She initially introduced me to this business model. I love working with my wife. She brings the administrative expertise that has propelled our growth over the past year. We both work for Arise Client Companies under our corporation. We basically run a call center from our home! We both maintain full-time jobs and consider this to be an extra stream of revenue, which we encourage everyone to have in this economic landscape.
N54: Sometimes “work from home” businesses carry a negative stigma attached to them because of different scams that have gone on over the years. How does your company separate itself from that stigma? We acknowledge that stigma and know that many people are very leery of “work from home” types of businesses. Extreme caution should be used as there are many scams out there. There are legitimate “work from home” opportunities out there and we are one. This opportunity is not for everyone. The biggest difference with this business model is we are not a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) or Pyramid type of company. You don’t have an “up-line”, “down-line” or “side-line” nor do you have to bring people on board to solidify your success. You don’t have to sell anything (if you don’t want to), go to any “presentation meetings”, handle supplies or pay exorbitant amounts of money to get started. This is basic inbound customer service phone calls that you provide from home. We are simply here to offer the opportunity to earn extra money, conveniently and comfortably.
N54: What is the process of getting started? We have provided step by step instructions on our website from building the profile to completing the proficiency tests. There are some minimal fees associated with getting started for things like a background check and training, which are all outlined on the website as well. There are no hidden fees or surprises. We pride ourselves on being 100% integral in our business dealings and part of that promise is to be as thorough as possible. The process can be a bit cumbersome, but that’s where being under an established VSC makes the difference. We are here to help you through the entire process so you can start earning faster.
N54: Which Fortune 500 companies can prospective independent contractors have the opportunity to work with? Contractually we are unable to disclose the names of clients, however, we can tell you that Arise has contracts with major travel & cruise line companies, the largest national mobile phone provider; the most renowned Emergency Roadside Service in the country, timeshare providers, pest control companies, office supply companies, major pharmaceutical companies and the list goes on. Arise boasts over 18,000 ACP’s and shows no signs of slowing down. Being the leader in the industry comes with the respect and the leadership to attract the best talent, the best clients and the best perks.
N54: Describe the training process involved in order to take on these companies as clients. Once an individual becomes certified and joins our corporation, they will have full access to the portal , which allows them the opportunity to see and select the client that best suits their needs. The portal will provide the name of the company, the number of hours required each week and what the responsibilities are. In addition, it will clearly state the length of the training class and how much the training class costs. All of these factors must be taken into consideration prior to enrolling in a class. Once a client is selected and you are enrolled in the class, we suggest that you fasten your seat belts and get ready for a “fast-track” learning experience. Classes can last anywhere from 14 to 30 days. During that time, you will feel like your head is going to explode as you learn your client’s processes and procedures. So you must be mentally prepared going in! After that, you post your hours and start earning your money.
N54: Give me an idea of what type of earning potential that can be gained doing this business? My wife uses her personal experience as an example on our social media outlets all the time. She provides customer service for an Emergency Roadside Assistance Provider, which requires her to work 15 hours per week. She never works more than the required 15 hours and earns (depending on volume) between $700 - $900 per month. However, in September 2011, she went on a cruise to Alaska. Her client is a 24 hour client and in the weeks leading up to her vacation, she worked as much as she could. She took $1,500 cash on the cruise, which she reportedly had a ball spending because it did not come out of our household finances. That’s what this opportunity provides: freedom and results. Check out the recent photo of her working at home while doing the laundry. This is the reality of how awesome this home based opportunity really is!
N54: Is it rewarding for you to know that you are providing job opportunities during the worst economic downturn this country has seen in some time? True story….this business morphed from that very place. We started our corporation for ourselves and when my wife’s 70 year old Aunt needed to make some money we signed her up. She began working and became a stellar contractor earning $500-$600 bi-weekly. We have not looked back since. We’ve been working with and signing up new ACP’s on a regular basis and look forward to helping your reader’s as well. We love payday around here. Sending out those checks gives us personal pride. We are honored to serve so many self-motivated and entrepreneurial-minded people. We are truly grateful to be in this position, sincerely thankful.
N54: How can interested parties contact you to get started in this incredible business venture so they too can begin to develop some financial stability for themselves in today’s tough job climate? We invite your readers to visit our website at www.nusourcerevenuemanagement.com, review the information and make sure this is the right opportunity for them. If they choose to move forward, simply complete the contact form on the website and either myself or my wife will follow-up as quickly as possible.
