How are the people you talk to promoting their Opportunity? Are they trying to sell their product as a retailer or are they using their product as a tool to show others how they can make money? In Network Marketing They should be promoting how they can help people make more money from home. Of course this type of business isn't for everyone but anyone can do it.<quoted text>
I work in the financial industry & do you know how may people I talk to on a daily basis who can't make ends meet in these types of jobs???? When someone gets their hours cut at work or loses their job all together, what is the FIRST thing that gets cut? Luxury items. No more expensive make-up, no more kitchen utensils & appliances, no more "romance enhancing" products. The nice lady that comes to clean your house once a week? Sorry, have to let her go. No remodeling your house, so the independant contractors that rely on that type of business don't have work, along with all the others who sell the products mentioned above. And invest in real estate? Yeah I get that it's a buyer's market, but unless you have hundreds of thousands of dollars lying around (in which case, losing your job isn't the end of the world), adding another mortgage or two isn't going to solve your problems. It's a buyer's market, but investing in real estate requires you to SELL the property, at a profit, which is d*** near impossible right now. Yes, self employment was the way to go 5 years ago, along with investing, but with this economy, it's just not wise to rely on income that comes from selling luxury products & services.
Yes, all businesses cost money. Just like a regular job, it cost you gas money to get to work if you drive there. it's the same with Network Marketing, but instead of paying gas money to get to your job, you are paying a fee to get to your work at home business. How much do people spend on gas every month,$200 maybe? People can start your very own home business for less than that.
Look at McDonalds, They are not in the Hamburger business. They are in the business of franchising. Do their corporate headquarters sell hamburgers there? They just use Hamburgers as a tool to make money. If they only have 1 franchise they can only do sell so many hamburgers in one area but if you turn that 1 franchise into 10, 20 or 1000's then they can sell even more hamburgers. That is why McDonalds is successful.
If you want to drill a hole in a wall, do you go to the store and buy a hole in a wall? Probably not, You go and buy a tool to drill that hole in the wall right?
Hopefully this helps some people
