Oh no! You aren’t doing one of “Those things” are you? You are going to lose all of your money! Its a Scam! Its a Pyramid! You are going to go to jail!

If you have ever given the network marketing industry a shot, you have probably heard something similar from someone close to you. More times than not, this negativity from the people closest to them is enough to get them to quit the industry before they even start. I have always compared the industry of network marketing to the Gym. Just buying a gym membership will not get you fit, you have to put the work in to see the result, and Network Marketing is the exact same!

Here are a few things you will not hear about the industry…It is a fantastic business model! You have the ability to partner with a company that usually does all the hard work for you and lets you just build your business inside of their umbrella. You don’t have to worry about forming partnerships, billing, accounts payable, hiring, firing, etc. You just have to focus on the few things you have to do in order to earn money!

Another thing I love is that is usually only costs a few hundred dollars to get started. Most people don’t have the ability to open a business due to lack of upfront capital. Network Marketing gives you the chance to open up a business, usually for only a few hundred bucks, and allows you to test out your entrepreneurial spirit without risking your entire life savings or burying yourself in debt.

The biggest reason I love the industry, which there are 100’s of reasons, is that you can do it part time! If you were to open a traditional business you would need to spend almost all of your days, nights, and weekends getting it off the ground. Because you have to do all things that go into the business it will consume a large chunk of your life. I speak from experience here as well, I have opened several traditional business over the years and most first time business owners usually don’t understand how much work goes into it. And what is the reward for all that hard work? A 5% chance of making it 5 years. 5 percent!!!! Yet your friends and family will tell you to go for it, and completely be skeptical when you join a network marketing company. I’m not sure how the social stigma for MLM started, but I do know that pound for pound I will put the industry of network marketing up against any other when you look at the system for making money, amount of money you need to put up to start, and the earning potential based on that return.

Network marketing isn’t perfect, but it is a great way to earn a living! Its Monday at 2pm and I’m sitting in a park writing this article enjoying a 68 degree day here in Chicago =). It allows you to buy your life back and live on your terms. I will forever be grateful to my friend, Brian, who introduced me to this amazing industry!
