I love talking about Network Marketing because well…I love Network Marketing! For some reason, it still has a bad reputation and that frustrates me because it’s a business model that changed my life in more ways than one.
I know plenty of women who knocked it before they tried it – I was one of them – so before you turn your nose up at it, why not see if there’s something in it for you?
Here are ten reasons Network marketing could be perfect for you…
1.You love the idea of having your own business but you have absolutely no idea what you want to do and have no business experience.
Let’s be honest, sometimes you can fall in love with the idea of being your own boss, living a laptop lifestyle and having total freedom…but have zero idea where to start.
Some people are blessed with a clear business idea or passion, but not everybody is. My entry into the world of entrepreneurship was through Network Marketing. At the time, I had no idea I even had an entrepreneurial bone in my body, yet 18 months later I was earning a five figure monthly income. All I knew at the time was that I craved the laptop lifestyle I had read so much about.
Network Marketing is the BEST introduction to entrepreneurship that I know of. It has NO risk attached, you are given a blueprint for success and can learn from successful people that have gone before you. You can’t just call up the owner of a multiple million dollar company and ask them to mentor you for free…they’d think you were mad. Yet in Network Marketing you can join a millionaire earner, and they will teach you their ways FOR FREE.
So if you love the idea of having your own business but don’t quite know what that would look like, there could be a perfect Network Marketing company out there for you.
2. You have a big dream or goal but don’t know how you will generate the money to make it happen.
I work with purpose-driven women who have big work they wish to do in the world, but sometimes I meet women who just don’t know how they’re going to make that happen. A lot of dreams require money to make them happen. You can hide your head in the sand about that or face the reality of it. Perhaps you love your job, but you have a dream of setting up a charity that you know your current income would never allow you to do. Network Marketing is the perfect answer. It allows you to build up a significant income on the side (time and effort permitting of course) without sacrificing your job. You can then use this income to pay for those crazy big dreams of yours.
3. You want money to invest but never have enough left over to save.
If you want to create wealth, you HAVE to invest. Whether it’s in bonds, property or the stock market. However, that’s pretty challenging when you have zero money leftover after all your expenses have gone out. Most people have very little disposable income leftover, especially if they have a family to look after. That’s where Network Marketing comes in. By committing just 10 hours a week to your business, you could create an extra income of around $2,000 per month. That’s an extra $24,000 a year, which would be a perfect amount to start investing.
4. You want to be able to travel more.
If you want to take Network Marketing seriously and make a career out of it, it’s one of the best ways to be able to travel more…and often for free. Firstly, if you commit to building a global business then this will give you the chance to travel internationally whilst mixing business with pleasure. Secondly, most companies offer travel incentives. For example, my company have paid for me to go to Mexico, South Africa, Greece, Dubai, the USA and Sweden for free so far! Finally, Network Marketing will provide you with both the money and time to travel as often as you want!
5. You’re passionate about health, beauty, wellbeing, fitness or any of those areas…and would love to make an income from it.
If you are passionate about any of these areas…then Network Marketing is a no brainer. The biggest companies in the Network Marketing world tend to focus on the health, wellness and beauty markets. In Network Marketing you literally get paid to share products that you love and help people to better their lives.
For example, my own team The Self Made Society, make an income from working on their own confidence AND helping other women with theirs.
So if you already love these things, why not make money from it?
6. You want to grow in confidence, meet new people and make positive changes in your life.
The most rewarding thing about getting involved with Network Marketing isn’t actually the money…it’s the personal development you’ll experience and the people you’ll meet. I’ve made some of the best friends I’ve ever had through Network Marketing and I’ve grown so much as a person I’m almost unrecognisable. If you want to grow significantly as a person and feel more confident and happy…it’s one of the best environments to put yourself in.
7. You don’t like risk.
Network Marketing has the best risk:upside ratio out there. Why? Because it cost next to nothing to get started and within a year you could be earning a six-figure income if you really wanted to. So if you are averse to risk but need a way to increase your income…it’s pretty much perfect.
8. You don’t have much time or money to put into a business yet.
Most Network Marketing companies require less than $500 to get started and you can build a solid full time income in 5-15 hours per week. So if you aren’t able to pour thousands into a start up business or jump straight into quitting your job…it’s the perfect starting block. It also gives you a great taster of the entrepreneurial life…to see if you are cut out for it.
9. You want to learn how to manage your money better.
Network Marketing didn’t just give me money, it taught me how to manage it. I made more money than I had ever seen in my life but luckily, the personal development journey that the business put me on led me to read about money, wealth and money management. If you’re terrible with money…starting a Network Marketing business could be one of the best things you ever do.
10. You hate your job and want OUT.
If you are willing to put the time and effort in, fail fast and commit 100% then you could replace most full time incomes within 6 months or even less. So if you are stuck in a job you absolutely hate and you want out…Network Marketing could be a great option for you.
