RULES and Guidance for Sound Prosperity Teams
Rules and Regulations for Sound Prosperity Teams
Sound Prosperity is all about showing people that they have their lives in their own hands.
This means that you accept responsibility for your life. Your Community has to have its own responsibility, in which you can be a part. You can be a part in Sound Prosperity in your country too.
Sound Prosperity does not have a structure for your country, and nobody can set up a structure other than provided here below. There are a few restrictions for working with and for Sound Prosperity.
Sound Prosperity is totally independent of politics and religion. We will not allow any connection to political people or any discrimination by religion. Nepotism is prohibited.
Anyone working for Sound Prosperity signs, by starting their work, that they agree with the Sound Prosperity Rules, including the MySPURT.org rules. By signing up for a SPURT account. http://soundprosperity.org/home/sp-rules
Sound Prosperity wants you to learn how you can work as a TEAM in groups of maximal 5-10 people with own responsibility in doing business within your community and/or in supporting your community.
We want all teams to be unshakable. No matter what happens, you are on each other’s side. You are aligned and heading in the same direction. You will choose people to work with, who are without a single doubt there for each other.
What is the most important thing that a team has to know? They have to have a GAME PLAN: A team that goes out on the field without a game plan is going to lose the game. Period!
To be able to make a winning game plan, you have to be able to communicate with each other. You have to be clear on what you want to DO. The team is ONE. There is NO leader! There is only a chosen
SPEAKER who will report to the Foundation of the country what they have done as a team. The speaker might be the one in your team who is more communicative so that he can "sell" the product you are making to the outer world. The Team Speaker is chosen out of the people in the team. Each half year the team members can vote anonymously if they want the Speaker to continue or not. Each team member can give 1-100 points. If the person receives under 60%, he has to go. He might STAY in the TEAM if that is what the others want, but a new Speaker has to be chosen.
What kind of teams do you want to set up?
You, as the community, will have to share
your responsibility by choosing
people to work as a team in any of the places where Sound Prosperity is presented.
It is NOT recommended AND permitted to work with more than ONE direct family member in a team, without written approval by the SP Country Foundation.
You might first define what kind of teams you would need for your community. What kind of people do you want to have on your team? PRODUCTIVITY is the only indicator to choosing to work with someone. So choose your team members wisely. They need to be as inspired by the task of the team as you are. What do you want to MAKE, produce, sell, teach? How do you want to support Sound Prosperity in their vision to make people strong and self-responsible so that WHEN they have money, they can handle it wisely?
Do you know that you BECOME like the five persons closest to you?
Think FIRST of what you would LOVE to do! THAT should be what you need to do. How can YOU be productive WITH what you LOVE to do?
You are allowed to be part of more than one team.
On the Sound Prosperity Education Blog (Label Teams) there is a post with ideas on what you could choose to do.
There is also supportive information on what a Team is, about a Business Plan (Game Plan), Responsibility and how you can work with a Team.
For Sound Prosperity there might be a team for:
- SPURT Admin, also setting up accounts.
- A team to check the PLAN’s presented by people who want to DO something in your community and follow up on their financial situation.
- A team might support the people who do not exactly know how to work with SPURT and what they can do. They should not feel they are left alone.
- Others might form a team for mentoring local business.
- Of course there is a team finding people willing to work with the MySPURT Business Concept and sell their future production and get paid immediatily in SPURT TWICE the value of the yearly production.
- Education is for certain a team you want to build.
- There might be a team for NEW ideas from the community, but also people who want to start buying and selling or presenting services can form a team. They go out in the community and present their services.
- There might be a team responsible for cleaning or gardening. Such a team might spread out through the whole community and offer their services.
- Another team might be doing secretary work.
- You will have a team with people who are supported by Sound Prosperity to start a business. They might want to find out how they can make MORE of their business by working together.
- There might be a team finding businesses where the people in your community can work their 3 hours a week so that they can earn SPURT to support their life. The businesses have cheaper workers and can offer products in SPURT.
- A team might actively find businesses willing to accept SPURT for their products. They teach them that when they accept SPURT, they can use those SPURT to buy material themselves and get 100% compensated. This way they are buying at zero costs.
- There might be a Team to support the LifeQuest and responsible for payments due to completion of the Program. (See later more.) Etc.etc.
No one is more important than another, not even the speaker/leader!
None of your groups is more important than the other, for only together you can accomplish what you want to do. This way each group of 5-10 people can have its own
The work is done by the whole
group, each one with own responsibility and is finished by a certain time, set by the group. For example: If your group is planning to clean up the surrounding, and they plan they can do it in 10 hours and you get it done in 8 hours, you will have 2 hours more free time and earn for the 10 hours. But if it takes 12 hours, you will have to work another two hours.
If you plan to sell 100 T-Shirts in one week, you might be ready within 3 days, and you have time left for other things you might want to do. If you, on the other hand, need two weeks, you get the same time (one week) paid.
It is important to work together to get things done quicker and more efficient. It might be that one is ill and that others take his task for those days, where the other is supporting the others when they have something they have to take care for. It is a TEAM, and the responsibility for getting the work done is by ALL.
It is a VERY good idea to look at the other teams and see if you can profit from each other's products or knowledge.(For example, could you hire the administrative qualities from another team.)
There will be no one not knowing what to DO, for you have your plan for your group
! You are NOT dependent on a “leader” who has to tell you what you have to do at a certain time.
You can start earning SPURT as soon as you have a PLAN and a TEAM ready. The plan needs approval from another Team, appointed by you all for that purpose.
Sell your future production through SPURT to NEW CHANCES.
Please read the MySPURT Business Concept.
Sound Prosperity Team Counselor in a city or country.
The Sound Prosperity Team Counselor is working daily on the ground with the teams to make life better. He is the supporter of ALL teams in a city or a country. He is the Support of all Teams at all times. The team speakers provide a weekly and monthly report to him. He is in contact with and reporting to one of the Board Members of the Foundation chosen for this function.
If you are willing to take the responsibility to be a Counselor, you can present yourself as such. The teams can ask for a meeting to get to know you better, see your qualifications and understand what you stand for and decide if you would be the Counselor they want to have. They vote, anonymously, and chose the one who is, in their eyes, the best to work with. There might be one Sound Prosperity Counselor in a township. But you need to make sure that the possibility to build enough teams around you is assured. If the choice is not for you, it does not mean that you cannot work in any of the teams and support the cause that way. Perhaps people can get to know you better this way. The Counselor is not MORE appreciated than any of the team members.
Each six months the Counselor is anonymously evaluated by the team members, by appointing 1-100 points. The Sound Prosperity Zimbabwe Foundation can have a veto, but will only use that right, if the Sound Prosperity Rules are violated, if the Counselor is found to have connections to political parties or persons, or is discriminating. Another reason to use the veto right is when a family is setting up teams and choose a speaker out of themselves.
If the team speaker or the city Counselor do not get more than 60 points, he/she has to go and a new one is chosen. It might be so that all people are that satisfied with the cooperation, that he/she might be there for the next 20 years! See this interview from Dr. Ricardo Semler
to understand what we mean (and others on You Tube.)
The Sound Prosperity Team Counselor is there for the team. He might hear their problems or ideas. He is a constant supporter. He cannot have another function next to this work for it will take all his time. The Sound Prosperity Team Counselor is NOT the leader of a Prosperity Center. Prosperity Center Leaders could
be chosen out of the Sound Prosperity Team Counselors, but are appointed by the Foundation. If the Foundation is seeing that taking responsibilities and this voting system is working well, they might decide to allow the teams to also vote for a Prosperity Center Leaders.
A Team Counselor can ask advise from the PAM, BAM or KAM
A Sound Prosperity Team Counselor has the right to resign, after six months.
Prosperity Centers are lead by Prosperity Center
leaders. Their function differs from the Sound Prosperity Team Counselors, because they are concentrating their work to building the Prosperity Center, and care information and support of individuals.
The Prosperity Leader is working with PAM, BAM and KAM’s
(appointed by the Foundation) to get payment for debts and projects and be the advising board for all Sound Prosperity Members and in specific for the Team Counselors. http://soundprosperity.org/prosperity-centers/pam,-bam,-kam
Payment in SPURT for the job in the Team, which can be exchanged in SPURT+:
What do you need
to live a good life? What can we
afford? What would a person with the same job earn outside our Prosperity Center? We can show the people all this information. They can decide how much they want to earn. The rest of the team might say that what he is asking is too much for what he can deliver, or they might say he can ask more because he is working really well.
What to do next?
Sit together with all people thinking they can contribute to their community. Discuss the teams you would want to form and find the people you would like to have in your team. When the teams are set up, or if you have any question, contact the responsible Board Member for support from the Sound Prosperity Country Foundation. He will check, in this phase, if all understood well what is the meaning of this totally new approach for working with teams. You will learn to work with this model and do not need his support anymore. You will provide overviews, results of what was accomplished by the teams. If you set your goal for 14 days, show that it is done. You might have goals that take longer, and that is also communicated to the Board. But you are responsible yourself, as a team!
You will provide all names from all teams, also when new teams are set up later, to this Board Member.
