Network Marketing is Not for Normal People

Apr 7, 2008
Network Marketing has been called "The People's Franchise". A home business model that has been designed for the person with little or no training in business. People are promised that they will earn millions and the average distributor earns maybe $300-500 per month.

Is the multi-level marketing promise a lie?

I don't think so. I think that it is a simple business model that works. It's just not a business model for normal people. It's a business, not a work-at-home job program. After 18 years in network marketing, building my business a $200 distributor at a time, I've come to the conclusion that if you don't seize everything that MLM promises, you are missing the point of this great business model.

Network Marketing is vast and unlimited. It's not hindered by buildings, huge overhead, and employees and unions. It excels at distributing goods and services to everyday people. As more network marketers harness the internet, the possibility of "making money while you sleep" absolutely becomes real.

When you join a network marketing company, bring your big dreams with you. Bring possibilities for you and your family that are impossible now. You are at a giant smorgasbord loaded with all sorts of delights. Just don't make the mistake that most people make when staring at the feast of income and freedom that MLM offers; most distributors come to the banquet and only want a tomato.

MLM takes too much heart and energy to only ask for a little. The same effort to create $300 can create $3,000 or $30,000 a month. People tell me all the time, "Well, I don't want to be greedy" or "I'll give it 90 days and see what happens". NO! This is the wrong place for that! Network Marketing is the one place where you can have what you really want. You do have to work for it. You do need to choose a good system. But this is not the place to seek to earn $100 week!

"Normal" people speak in terms of what is "reasonable". MLMers speak in terms of possibilities. "Normal" people speak in terms of costs and expenses. MLMers speak in terms of return and multiplication. Normal people speak in terms of reality. Network marketers speak in terms of making dreams real.

It has been said that by the age of 70, 95% of the people (normal) are dead or dead broke. When you choose to join the ranks of network marketers, you are choosing to leave the normal world behind.
