I have to be honest…. I used to roll my eyes every time I heard the term “network marketing.” I had no time for the people who put up those “working from wifi” posts and really thought it was a ridiculous industry that people never stuck at…. but then I joined the Network Marketing Industry.
I have been partnered with a Network Marketing company now for 5 months and haven’t looked back. My once limited, arrogant mindset, looking down on people that joined this industry is gone and I can’t imagine myself not working in the industry, so what changed?
After being approached time after time about joining the Network Marketing industry, I decided one day to look into it. I researched the different companies, looked into what they actually did and investigated and researched until I knew I had to be a part of it. It always seemed like a scam to me “we want to pay our partners more commission than anyone else” – no business would ever say that, would they? After much time and research I found that this ever growing industry and the company I am partnered with do say this, because they can! It is a multi-billion dollar industry.
For anyone that ever challenges me on this industry I encourage them to research it. If you research it, you will find tens of thousands of success stories. From people wanting to earn a little extra cash (which is what many of us will associate with Network Marketing) to Network Marketing made millionaires – the industry is going no where. Did you know there are professional Network Marketers?
For me, I get to earn an extra income, work at a time and place to suit me, work with likeminded women, run my business how I want to and run it alongside my current commitments. What isn’t to love? I can earn how much I like, not how much someone is telling me I am being paid (a massive shift from the traditional working mindset).
I think for so long, this industry has been seen as a get rich quick scheme (maybe that is why some people don’t stick at it?) and it isn’t. This is a business, just like any other. You have to work at it and you have to work at it consistently. If you invested £100,000 into a business tomorrow morning you wouldn’t just show up 2 days a week would you? Then you shouldn’t just show up 2 days a week in your Network Marketing business either! It takes hard work, determination and sometimes a thick skin for the criticism you can receive but each time I receive that I laugh at their ignorance about the industry. For me it is simple, if you researched the industry and researched it thoroughly, I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to be a part of it!
So the next time you see a friend or family member launching their own online business, think before you eye roll. Do you really know enough about the industry?
If you have ever wondered about Network Marketing or what it is I do then get in touch! Even if it is just to ask a question, if you never ask you will never know!
