Network Marketing Profession

Network Marketing with an Objective Perspective

If you are a serious entrepreneur considering the reasons why the network marketing model would work, this blog post is for you. I always aim to be objective in every blog post. I am in this profession because I think it’s a great model to follow if we desire to be an entrepreneur making a difference all around the globe.  I chose Young Living because I don’t only believe they have great products but have experienced first-hand, since 2007, how they have enhanced my life, as well as the life of husband and kids, and that of my pets; that is the reason I continue my journey to be a top leader in this company. 

 

Money and power talk, it’s a fact. It’s also a fact that the majority of us are introverted and fear that could never be excellent top leaders talking in front of a lot of people. However, if we have a heart to serve people and know that God has placed it on our heart to be top leaders so we can effectively reach even more people, He will make it happen in HIS timing, and will provide us all we need along our journey, including  the great wisdom we need to lead others wanting to make a difference in this world as entrepreneurs. 

 

If we look into the history of businesses, we will find that the network marketing industry continues to steadily grow year after year, regardless of what the economy is doing. Other top industries do well, but it’s the network marketing industry that has grown the most because it’s a model that encompasses people in all walks of life. This model of business embraces rich and poor alike, highly educated as well as those who mainly have been educated at home (not in a school setting), men and women without having to prove that one gender is better than the other, as well as people of all races and ages. It’s a true equal-opportunity model of entrepreneurship that is NOT reserved only for those who can get a loan or have been born into money (or have gotten it through years of hard work). Why would we NOT want to share about it? It’s such an honorable way to “get ahead in life” and make a difference in the lives of people around the world while we do that. 

 

I encourage you to get a hold of a copy of Robert Kiyosaki’s book “The Business of the 21st Century”, as well as the book written by Charles W. King and James R. Robinson titled “The New Professionals”. Both of these books will give you great insights into the network marketing profession so that you can decide if this is the way you want to make a difference in the world while creating a passive form income that will keep you afloat when you reach retirement years, or when you are forced to retire because of an injury. Read through them to understand the history of the network marketing industry as well as the tremendous benefits we are offered when we build our business using this model. 

 

Entrepreneurship is not for everyone, so aim to just share about this industry and about the company which you choose to represent. It’s not about convincing anyone, but rather about sharing and those interested will come on board with us. Some will stick with us for the entire journey, and others will quit along the way when they don’t reach success as quickly as they desired. That’s okay! We are only responsible for our own actions. Even though the actions of each person on our team is what leverages our efforts and what propels us to the next level, we are not responsible for what they do or decide not to do. The quicker we understand this concept, the more peaceful our journey to top ranks will be. 

 

Another thing I see happening is that people jump on board because they believe it’s an opportunity to get rich quick and then are able to retire early. This is far from the truth! We must never approach this opportunity with a lottery mentality, but rather with the full knowledge that this is a respectable and honorable profession where we get to start our own business from the very beginning of the career. Each journey is uniquely designed with its own challenges and blessings, so enjoy it every step of the way, growing through every challenge. Allow problems to rise you, to make you better not bitter towards others or towards this profession. 

 

Remember, it takes time for us to accept new ideas as “bright ideas”. At first, we will be ridiculed heavily, then slowly people will start accepting the idea as a possibility that it’s “not as crazy as it seems”, and finally it will be widely accepted by the majority. Even though we have come a long way, we are still pioneering this movement. It takes courage to step up and out of comfort box and not everyone will do it. It’s easier to ridicule those who are courageous and constantly belittle them saying “it will never work” while trying to prove that what they do works better. Let them be. Our results will speak loudly in the end. If you decide to become a network marketing entrepreneur, be prepared to take on rejection and persist in midst of the challenges. “If God is for us, who can be against us?”. I know we have God on our side because He wants all of us to enjoy a life of freedom, not slavery to a system where we trade our time for money and where most of the time we sacrifice our families and our health.
