    Summary:
    I recently joined a new VoIP technology home business that was featured in the 'Your Business at Home' magazine and 'INC 500' magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the US. These magazines evaluate premier home businesses and feature the top income earners of these companies in the magazines. You can hear more about it by dialing 585-420-4582 and see by watching www.seevideophone.com.

    5LINX is the home business I started. It is positioned in the telecommunication and technology industry. They are a premier VoIP carrier and use a direct sales model to distribute their services. What I love about this business is that I save my customers alot of money on services they are using everyday, such as cellphone, internet, local phone, satellite TV, etc. and I am able to make money at the same time. Doesn't it just make sense to position yourself to make money on bills that people have to pay? Because I came from a corporate background I wasn't sure about the direct sales business model, but the more I learned about the industry, the more I understood that most companies were shifting to this model to distribute their goods and services. In addition, if this mainstream concept was good enough for Warren Buffet - one of the richest men in the world, I know I examine this rapidly growing VoIP technology.

    VoIP is the next major wealth trend in telecommunications and 5LINX gives you an opportunity to capitalize on this phenomenon. 5 LINX is expanding worldwide and they are looking for sharp, motivated entrepreneurs to position on their national expansion team.

    In business, timing is everything and this is a ground floor company that offers a tremendous opportunity for serious entrepreneurs to make some serious money!

    Let's talk about this exciting opportunity!
