“Network marketing is all about the products!” Bullshit.
Let me explain.
I fell in love with the network marketing model almost 20 years ago when I first saw it. It was brilliant. Instead of me having to do a lot of work, it was about a lot of people doing a little bit of work. I’ve always loved the idea of large potential gains from small, consistent, measured efforts.
I’ve since earned a small fortune with companies that sold long distance service, vitamins, online greeting cards, and skin care. It would be accurate to say that I don’t “love” any of those things. What I do love is people. And one thing that I’ve learned is that most people have hopes and dreams.
That – in my opinion – is what network marketing is about. No matter the company, no matter the product or service, what network marketing offers is a chance at a better tomorrow. It’s that inner hope that will drive someone to push through comfort zones and sacrifice a little bit of that spare time.
Tune out the hype. Ignore the million (and billion) dollar promises. Don’t listen to the posers who tell you that traditional jobs are somehow the enemy. Instead, ask yourself if you’d like a $1,000 a month asset. What about $5k or $10k? That, on top of what you currently earn, would make for a sweet lifestyle improvement.
Not only is that realistic, it’s also intelligent and admirable.
And you don’t need to post before and after pictures of your crow’s feet or love handles on Facebook.
Please stop that.
You want somebody to pull out their credit card and join your team? Show them a way to get what they want (i.e. more money, more fun, more happiness). We’re in the business of hopes and dreams.
