Why Shop Online?

why shop online

If you really believe in the old saying that time is money, then it is high time that you switched to online grocery shopping!

Whether you are a homemaker, a working professional, or someone who works from home; online grocery shopping offers the ultimate way to save your valuable time, energy and most importantly money!

Online grocery shopping can also work really well for women who are working mums, as it saves them time to spend with their family and kids over weekends.

If you are wondering whether to try online grocery shopping or not; here are the 3 top reasons that might convince you to go for it –

1. Dynamic Shopping experience

Online shopping is a dynamic shopping experience.
Whether you are looking for –

  • a wide range of health foods or safe, organic products in one place
  • offers and discounts or
  • just a hassle free and cost effective delivery service

online grocery shopping offers you an overall amazing experience with all of these!

The best online shopping sites in Australia (like InnerOrigin) will offer you the highest quality products that you won’t even find in your nearest stores.

So, if you are looking for a great shopping experience that not just saves your time, but also money, then you must try online grocery shopping.

2. Convenient

One of the greatest advantages of shopping online is the fact that you can order 24/7 without leaving the comfort of your couch.

This can be especially relevant when it comes to online grocery shopping for health products. Stepping outside your home to get specific items that may be hard to source locally is not worth wasting your valuable time. Often, it’s difficult to know which shops have what and you may need to visit multiple stores to find what you need.

For people who are unwilling to compromise quality and who value their time and energy the easiest and most convenient way to do it is to shop online. InnerOrigin uphold extremely high quality standards and have an amazing selection of healthy groceries, organic skin care ranges, wellness products and much more!

Don’t forget that by shopping online, you are also avoiding paying for parking or fuel to drive to the store.

Following on from my last blog I’d like to expand on why I choose to follow and be involved in the business of Inner Origin.

Inner Origin Values and Philosophies

Inner Origin source the most beneficial products for your well being and healthy foods and ingredients. These are sourced from local suppliers, or merchants as they are known in the world of business. 

With environmentally friendly packaging the company is looking after this wonderful planet we call Earth.  All products and ingredients are presented to the Product Advisory Board. (They are shown below)

All ingredients and products must be sourced from farms which are ethically managed, including using environmentally sustainable farming practises.  When reading online or on the packaging you’ll notice that all of the ingredients are recognisable and shown what country the ingredients originate.

Even if you are looking for organic and natural foods you’ll find it on the platform.  Even the CBD oil is organic.  Same as the organic wine.

You can be sure you’re helping the planet with every order you place with InnerOrigin.

Inner Origin business model

I enjoy the support I receive from the company and other Advocates of the business.  We have flexibility in how we grow our individual advocate businesses.  However, usual business rules do apply.  If you choose to be interested in where you can take this business yourself I’d really like to talk with you. If this business suits you you can grow it either in your own township or City, or even over the internet via social media. 

One of the benefits of being involved with Inner Origin as an Advocate is that the shopping platform is online and you don’t handle the cash or product.  The company take care of all of it.  Even delivery of the purchases, they’re forwarded to the customer anywhere the person wishes for them to be delivered.  All at the one delivery price across Australia and New Zealand, $12.95.  Shipping to the USA is subject to standard shipping prices at present till Inner Origin is fully launched there.

InnerOrigin was shortlisted Finalists in the Optus My Business Awards 2018 for Fitness & Wellbeing Business of the Year!

Why I’m affiliated with Inner Origin

Back in March of 1993 my ophthalmologist told me I was losing my sight due to a genetic and hereditary condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa.  In short, my retinas were dying.  At the time I had a drivers license and forklift ticket.  I had worked in a wreckers, service station, motorcycle centre and warehousing. 

Within two to three years of my diagnosis life began to change.  The colours on the television were changing to pastels.  Driving became more difficult.  Reading the newspaper was a chore.  Even walking about was an interesting experience.  I had difficulty gaining a full time job due to the fact I couldn’t read efficiently and make use of the forklift ticket I had.

So, some years later I moved to Brisbane and was introduced to computers. I knew I would have to engage online sometime and this helped a great deal as.  I learned to use the computer  with little to no sight.  Now, I have plenty of technology around me and a program on my computer called JAWS (Job Access With Speech) which converts the text to speech for me and allows me to conduct business and work at home.

I applied for many jobs in the early 2000’s.  However, due to my sight impairment  and limited understanding of navigating the computer I was declined.   I was introduced to a home based business in 2003 and joined a business club here in Brisbane all those years ago At a round table event I was directed to create my own telemarketing service.  This I did and am still doing it right now!  This wasn’t my plan when I was younger as I wanted to get a number of machinery tickets and use them to travel and work.

So although it is easy to plan, you can’t predict!

Today, my sight is limited to the point where I need to use a white cane to walk about independently.  I require assistance to purchase my groceries when I go shopping.  I can’t drive, or ride a bicycle.

To keep myself fit I do Karate, and have done for the last ten and half years since returning from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro back in March of 2009.  My girlfriend and I walk up and down Mt Coot-Tha a few times a month when time permits.  I still telemarket for a commercial cleaning company, and with the assistance of a Virtual Assistant I manage the website Groceries for Health, which is affiliated with Inner Origin.

You may ask what attracted me to Inner Origin?

I’ve been involved in several home based businesses over the past 17 years.  Early in my business career it was mainly skin care and supplements.  I eventually realised they weren’t the right fit for me. 

Inner Origin initially attracted my attention as they support Australian and New Zealand businesses to market their products to the general public.  Now, we’re expanding to the United States to introduce them to the same philosophy.    

The Product Advisory Board (PAB) is an important part of the IO business model.  Their role is to critically look at all the ingredients and  where they’re sourced.  They ensure ethical farming practices are adhered to.  Approved products have no GMO or petrochemicals in them.  You are able to read where the ingredients come from and also understand what the ingredients are.  You won’t find any confusing numbers included on the ingredient list.  

Inner Origin also offers a price match guarantee so the price on the Inner Origin platform is equivalent to the price on the merchants website.  Please keep in mind that retail stores have their own pricing systems and the prices may vary either way!

The postal delivery cost hasn’t changed in this time and is still $12.95 no matter the size of the order right across Australia and New Zealand.

A little Inner Origin history

Inner Origin launched in Australia in November 2016.  I joined in February 2017 and have enjoyed the experience.  In 2018 Inner Origin expanded to New Zealand and at present IO is pre-launching into the United States which is very exciting. 

We now offer international shipping.  So, if you have family or friends in the USA you can send them a gift from the IO platform.  Alternatively, if you’re in the States and reading this you can go onto innerorigin.com/help4u, click on the ‘Shop USA’ link and have your purchase delivered to you or the person you’re buying for! Easy.

Inner Origin have weekly webinars and we welcome anyone to listen in and hear from merchant suppliers interviewed by Sally-Ann Ferguson, the CEO.  Other webinars outline the business of Inner Origin and how you can be involved and promote the Inner Origin health giving philosophy.

Whether you’re in Australia, New Zealand or the United States you’ll be supporting local businesses

Please look out for events and webinars being posted on the Facebook pages, @groceriesforhealth for Australia, @groceriesforhealthnz for New Zealand and @groceriesforhealthus for the United States.

The Australian Online Grocery Market

The Australian Online Grocery Market

Imagine sitting at home and having the breakfast, lunch and dinner ingredients you need for this week, home delivered!  In future, this will be the norm for many Australian families.

No more struggling with bulky packages or the worry of still having to shop after a long day at work. When you order your groceries online, it is delivered to your doorstep. And with Groceries for Health from Inner Origin you have the added bonus of knowing that your choices are organic, authentic, and verified food and health products.

Why Shop for Groceries Online?

Online grocery shopping is one of the most sought-after services today. With our present work-life balance (we call it imbalance) it allows you to save time and devote it to your family instead. You know what you are paying for and that may well be less than what you would pay at the local supermarket. Discounts and sales are plentiful and allow you to stock up on some of the non-perishable groceries for a big discount.

Currently, the online grocery shopping market in Australia is at the nascent stage and could take some time to develop. We’re all used to home-delivery pizzas and fast food, however, Amazon’s online grocery market, which is one of its largest services has just entered the Australian market. This is definitely going to change the outlook of Australians with regards to shopping for groceries online.

The Present Australian Online Grocery Market

InnerOrigin is the only platform in Australia that provides authentic, organic food and health products. These are offered via a third party online platform, whereby InnerOrigin advocates can sell their products to the public.  The business model that is similar to that of AirBnB and Uber. An advocate is a person who refers the InnerOrigin application to other users and receives a commission on the purchases of their users. 

Inner Origin products have been selected with care and follow strict guidelines to carry out our philosophy:

    • Cruelty-Free – Our products do not harm or kill animals.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams

Boulevard of Broken Dreams

Reposted with permission from Bob Pritchard

Today it seems lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride are attributes. The capitalist dream of being able to make money in exchange for doing as little as possible is now a fervent passion.  One that rarely makes the list but has been responsible for decades of self-delusion and misplaced optimism has been the pernicious rise of the motivational speaker. To walk in the footsteps of one of these charlatans is to take a trip down the boulevard of broken dreams. These snake-oil salesmen have been elevated into high priests.

There are so many people selling “niche” solutions that the word niche itself has now become obsolete. I feel that the motivational speaking sector and business leader industry should be much more stringently regulated. We simply can’t have these sharp-suited hucksters running around willy nilly, telling people that if they get up at 5 am, drink a Kale smoothie every morning and chant “I am great” that they’ll succeed beyond their wildest dreams and be buying their own Lamborghini and yacht in no time.

I learned a long time ago that easy, get rich schemes or a magic bullet for success do not work. Most motivational material has lots of clichés but little or no substance. If there was a silver bullet in making money in business, or winning at craps or at the horse races we would not have to charge fees to tell people about it.  We would just do it.  The entire motivational speaker business is a fraud of the highest order. Perhaps you can inspire as a speaker, but unless the person finds their own reason why they are doing what they are doing every day, you are pushing ..it uphill.  Anyone who brands themselves as a motivational speaker is peddling fiction. You can probably get a few people to up their game, and perhaps all of them to step their activity rate for a day or two, but you will not secure lasting performance improvement with this approach.

Sales training doesn’t work either.  Perhaps a small percentage of the salespeople will take on board what you teach them to improve their performance because they have both desire and commitment. The other 90% passionately want to make more money but are not passionate or committed enough to get off their arse and change and do whatever is required to be more effective and efficient. Most poor sales achievement isn’t about technical skill gaps; it’s about the conceptual gap between knowing what to do and being willing to do it.  Salespeople who aren’t performing to their full potential are usually being poorly led and mismanaged. An hour or two in a room with a charismatic speaker isn’t going to fix them. They’ll probably have a few laughs but getting them to close more business, ask for and get higher prices, close more predictably, secure appointments with decision makers, ring fence accounts to protect them from the competition, etc. will not happen unless you put some real thought and effort into training your people systematically and well.  

All of us have 4 major internal competitors:

  • fear (too scared)
  • apathy (can’t be bothered)
  • ignorance (don’t know)
  • ego (think they know better or are entitled)

 I routinely hear from clients that I have helped them turn their lives around and turn their businesses into thriving enterprises. This is not achieved with motivating clichés and exciting hype language, it is achieved by knowledge and education. 

Why don’t you ever see Hippos hiding in trees? Because they are really bloody good at it.
