Boo MLM, Who Needs It!
Mention MLM or Network Marketing and most people will groan. Pyramid schemes, dishonest MLM companies and pushy marketing reps have given Network Marketing a bad name.
A while back a co-worker of mine tried to get me join his MLM. “I have an amazing opportunity for you” For me? Thanks but no thanks! He was persistent, too persistent. I quickly learned to avoid him whenever possible and I would never answer his many, many phone calls. Let’s do lunch, bring a friend, bla, bla, bla. This poor guy eventually go let go from the company we both worked for and thought he could solely rely on his MLM company for financial support. The products he was trying to sell were a joke and I could tell he was struggling badly. I never even considered there was any possibility of making any money. Eventually and thankfully he moved and finally stopped bugging me.
That was a long time ago but a few years ago a close friend of mine started in about his MLM, I thought I should stop this before I lose a friend. I in no way want any part of any MLM.
Guess I was wrong…
It took him some time to convince me but I did some research on the company and decided to go for it. I almost gave up so many times. People weren’t interested in my “great business opportunity” or my “amazing” products and I wasted a lot of time and luckily thanks to my wife, not that much money. Enough to cause a few good arguments though. I made many of the mistakes that over 90% of all people who join an MLM company.
It can be a hard sell to get someone to believe the legitimacy of and reputation of MLM. Many people that become interested in MLM or Network Marketing are taken in by the guise of easy money. Much of the disbelief in MLM comes from the fact that most people do not put in the time and work it takes to be successful.
MLM (multi-level marketing) can be a great way to make some extra money in your spare time or you might decide you want to expand your business and go at it full time. It’s great to work for yourself and the money making potential is unlimited but don’t be fooled, being successful at it is going to take work.
