As they say “timing is everything in life”. If you are thinking about joining a network marketing company, do your research. I totally agree with Cuyler, in the following article, when he mentions to find a company that has NOT been around forever. Just because someone hasn’t heard of a company, doesn’t mean it’s bad. I am involved with two (2), yes 2, incredible companies. Each one only has about 100,000 Associates! Talk about room to grow! My husband and I were in Amway for 2 years back in 2000. Great company, great products (I still buy the soaps), but it wasn’t the right opportunity for us.

Why is it, when a person gets involved with a company, doesn’t make money, then says MLM doesn’t work, or you can’t make money. SO NOT TRUE! I friend of mine, whom is also my MLM mentor, has been in this industry for 13+ years. She has made $100,000++ in 2, yes 2, different companies. Why do you think she is my mentor? You need the right company with the right product, with the right mentor.

Here’s a great article:

MLM Keeps Getting the Rap
By Cuyler D Callahan

I’ve ran into Multi Level Marketing (MLM) programs before. Everybody has. They always seem so convincing until you tell you’re best friend down the road about it. Then you almost get a headache after “pyramid scheme” is tossed around like cannon balls during Gettysburg.

Have you often wondered why MLM programs are still around. Like really, you’d think a scam would die down after it’s been punished for 10 years. Looking at evolution, the weak animals died out a long time ago, leaving the stronger of which you see to day. Business follows the same rules, no matter what anybody tells you.

Obviously it mean something. I’ll tell you what it means. MLM companies are learning from their mistakes. They have grown wiser as their customers have grown wiser. They have learned what is needed to make a MLM company work. Do you know what that is?

It means they need to do more work for you, rather then leaving 10,000 bottles of Gerry Berry’s Blueberry Blast on your doorstep, expecting you to sell it before it’s 5 month expiry date lapses.

The qualities of a good MLM program have emerged, and those that know where to look can actually find MLM programs that work, and work well. Programs that reward everyone for their work, not just those at the top.

Qualities of a good MLM program include:

-A product that actually sells like water in a desert- Finding these are hard, but a must if you’re to make it.

-You don’t sell the product, the company does. All you have to do is send people to a video on the net, or bring them to a meeting.

-A structured program that sets a cap on the success of those at the top. It’s very unfair when the guys at the top only need to get a few hundred people which then bring people and they bring people then the person at the top get commissions on it all. No, a 5 generation cap is best. That means that you still need to continue to bring people to make money.

-A good support team with lots of information. A website full of products that will help you get people to the videos or meeting where the selling is done.

– And a new program. Don’t jump into some program that his been around a while. Chances are you’re fighting over leftovers after the industry has been swamped. The MLM Program has to be relatively new and the industry has to be new. Best is when the MLM program created a new niche in an industry, or a new industry itself. That means there is zero competition from other MLM companies. Jump in while it’s fresh.

These tips are essential if you are to make it in an MLM program. Don’t just skimp of MLM programs thinking they are all schemes. People ARE making money on these programs or they would have died out a long time ago.

The old “Pyramid Schemes” died out, but a new species of Multi Level Marketing has arisen, and most include these qualities. Jump on the boat before it gone, and start making some money on an MLM.

What would you do if you lost your job tomorrow? Are you relying on Corporate America for your retirement? Are you doing anything to earn extra income (outside of your primary job)?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you should think about a plan “B”. I’ve been there, done that! I never had a plan “B” when I worked in Corporate America. Sure wish I had. I wouldn’t have been so stressed when I got fired from my last job. Funny how you can be the top sales person in the company, win a sales contest and land Chick-Fil-A as an account and still get fired??!! Let’s just say I didn’t “brown nose” the VP and had no respect for him.

Now as a Realtor, I must have a plan “B”. I love what I do and yet during the recent ups and downs of the market, I need something, too. I believe I have found the most incredible product, company and opportunity! Not only am I able to help so many others, it is it helping me, too!!! Check it out… Live Your Life to the Max

To Your Success…
