Stand Out From The Crowd

Many people have negative preconceived notions on what network marketing, mlm, direct selling, or whatever you want to call it, is all about. There are many people who automatically think, “pyramid scam”, when they here those dreaded 3 letters, MLM. I’m sure you already know this, but in case you don’t, MLM stands for multi level marketing. It gets this name because as a distributor for a company, you get paid on multiple levels within the organization that you create.

Most of the people that associate MLMs with “pyramid scams” are people that are uninformed on how the business model actually works. They are closed minded people and no matter what you tell them, they just won’t get it. These are the type of people you don’t want to work with and definitely don’t want to join you in your MLM business. There is enough information out there, and anyone with half a brain can do some research and find out the legitimacy of the the MLM business model.

There are many people who join a MLM with false hopes and dreams. They expect it to be “easy money”, and when they find out that real work is actually involved, they give up and quit. Then they blame their upline, they blame the company, they blame the entire industry as to why the failed. They go around talking badly about network marketing, when the reality is that it was their own fault that they failed.

Network marketing gives someone to the potential to earn a lot of money, but that doesn’t mean it is going to be easy. It is just like any other job or career. It takes effort and hard work to succeed. It takes time to learn and acquire the skills necessary to be a top earner in this industry. No one just walks right in and is immediately earning 6 figure a year. So if you decide to join a network marketing company, be prepared to put in the effort required, it is definitely worth it.

Now that I talked about some of the reasons people see MLMs as bad or negative, I’m going to tell you a simple way to get past that. It can be hard to hear friends and family tell you that you are dumb for joining, those are the people the closest to you and it is only natural to seek their support and approval. Often time a spouse doesn’t “get it” either and might think you are wasting your time, which can be a difficult thing to go through. If it is a spouse, try to educate him/her on how the business model works. There a ton of third party tools available that explain how the network marketing business works and the benefits of it. As for everyone else in your life that doesn’t agree with your decision, use that as fuel to succeed. Work your hardest to prove them wrong. You will get the last laugh and that can be a very motivating thing to shoot for. In the end, when they see your checks, they will be asking, “hey, how can I get involved with this?”
