Why Network Marketing?

When I was a kid growing up in Colorado, my Dad worked and Mom stayed home with my brother and I. Dad would go off to work at 8 and leave work at 5. At night he would spend time with us playing games or watching T.V. Later in my life, they both would attend my football, basketball, and baseball games. We were kind of the typical "leave-it to Beaver" family.

Today, things have changed. There are very, very few of those families left. Now Dad works two jobs and Mom also works full-time, just to stay ahead. Credit cards are maxed. Most couples are two paychecks away from bankruptcy. Careers are no longer secure, even with the top companies like IBM and AT&T, who have both laid off tens of thousands of people. The economy is so unstable that it's even hard to invest for the future anymore. Stress is at it's highest. Most people are looking for answers.

What is the answer to this terrible downward spiral? There are probably many, but one is definitely network marketing. Let's look at the benefits:

First, it is a business that can be operated in a person's spare time, without jeopardizing their full-time job.

Second, it can build a residual income that grows without increasing the labor hours.

Third, it can be a family business where everyone has functions.

Fourth, it can eliminate the need for a second job or for both spouses to work.

Fifth, it can develop into a residual stream of income that will secure a person's financial future and retirement years.

Sixth, it can provide for more time freedom to truly enjoy the finer things in life.

Seventh, it can result in wealth and not just any kind of wealth, but passive wealth. The kind of wealth that gives you true freedom.

Eighth, people in network marketing make a lot of really great friends.

Ninth, people experience a great deal of personal growth.

Tenth, a large national or international network may result in tax-deductible travel to fun and exotic places.

Network marketing is the perfect business for current economy and culture. It offers a person the opportunity to own a piece of the American Dream without a huge up front investment, without a huge downside risk, without the need for offices or warehouses, without the need for employees and complicated bookkeeping, and with the potential of developing a permanent residual stream of income. A network marketing business is home-based, which allows people to avoid traffic jams, weather, pollution, and the stress of the daily commute. It also, enables people to be at home, raising their kids, instead of sending them off to daycare to be raised by strangers.

Network marketing is the answer to many people's prayers. They just don't know it yet! It's up to all of us to spread the word about network marketing. Find those poor souls who are suffering through life, hating their jobs, working long hours, neglecting their family, and fighting traffic, in order to earn just enough money to stay ahead of the wolves. Introduce them to network marketing. Show them a path into a new world filled with hope for the future. Network marketing is truly the light at the end of the dark tunnel. All you need to do is show them that it's not another train.

You Wouldn't Be Interested Would You?

There was once a desperate insurance sales manager who was trying to figure out how to get his agents to sell more. Finally he called them all into a meeting and told them to go out and say to people, "you wouldn't be interested in insurance would you?" Since this was so easy, the agents spoke to many more people and the sales skyrocketed.

If your network marketing volumes aren't where you want them, you could do the same thing. Why not go out and say to people, "you wouldn't be interested in making some extra money would you?" Imagine if you said this to everyone you met, what would happen to your recruiting numbers. What would happen if you taught this simple technique to your entire downline?

You wouldn't be interested in getting wealthy would you?
