When and if you choose to embark on the journey into MLM/Network Marketing, what you aren’t told is that as soon as you join a company you become both a student and a teacher all at the same time. That is, if you intend to try to build the business opportunity that comes with being part of whichever company you have chosen to join. Continue reading →
I’ve just been watching a youtube video with an Australian woman who is part of a famous husband and wife team who have gone Crown Ambassador in a famous Network Marketing business that is known world-wide. I knew her when she and her husband began to participate in their network marketing business, having been involved for 3 years. In this video she talked about what success means. She says that her values and her integrity have always been the same as what she was taught when she was a very young kid. Apparently in her mind, success is not about money, it’s about who you’ve remained all your life. Well, I wonder if she still speaks down to the cleaners and treats them with disrespect, because that’s who I remember her being, that’s for sure. Nowhere in her speech did she talk about love or respect. Nowhere did she talk about tenderness. Her and her husband are on a high six figure income, and she didn’t speak about charity once. I wonder what success to her really does mean.
I’ve also gone to watch other youtube videos with those two talking, and still nowhere do they talk about helping other people using their own money. Sure, they talk about providing support to their downline, but nowhere, and I mean nowhere, do I hear of them doing anything with their own money to help other people. Hmmm, if I were learning under those people, I’d be being led astray I reckon. I’m sure glad that my teacher has taught me better than this.
My interest in self-employment began quite young. Over my own varied career I have looked at probably 700 different ways to make an income (some of which I write about here on this site), mostly in the Small Business/Direct Selling/Franchise or Network Marketing area. Of the Network Marketing opportunities, many of them were too complicated and didn’t offer a very good return on effort expended in order to create a passive income. I gave most of them a miss because of that, however, I did happen upon one that has done very well and that will pay me very handsomely. This is how I came to believe in the principles behind some of these systems.
