As you know, I walked away from a successful teaching career to delve into network marketing…
I know what some of you are thinking, “How long are you going to do this until you realize it’s time to accept it’s just not going to make money and go back to reality?” My husband keeps getting asked this, so I thought I’d address it myself.
To begin, I have to tell you that my husband has been my biggest supporter on this journey. He has had faith in me, even when I was unsure in the beginning. I am so thankful for him because without him, I may have given up. I may have missed out on the blessings of these products and this company. For that reason, it pains me to hear friends who have skeptical husbands. It makes it hard for our goals to come to fruition in that setting.
So how long? Forever. What you may not know is that I have been making 4 figures since my second month selling. I almost reached that in my 1st month. Financially, we are extremely blessed and are able to successfully work Dave Ramsey’s FPU program on our income. I am 3 levels away from extensive profit sharing and a free Lexus. If I told you how much I make by working very little, you would not even suggest I walk away or give up. In fact, you would tell me I would be crazy to even consider walking away at this point.
There’s no inventory, no parties, no major ambassador expenses. I get to work from home, volunteer at my children’s school, keep sick kids home to recuperate, take care of our home, and have time for hobbies without all the stress of a regular job. It’s awesome!
So here is what I would say to the skeptics of the world: do your research. There’s a reason so many people are going into network marketing. It’s an inexpensive way to start a home business, provide flexibility and financial freedom with unlimited earning potential. Do you know why most people who fail at network marketing fail? Because they quit too soon and do not believe they will reach the top. It takes belief and grit to get there (a killer compensation plan also helps). I have both plus the killer compensation plan. Anyone joining should commit to 3-7 years of working the business. I am committed to however long it takes. I love the flexibility this life allows already, and that I get to help people get healthy every single day. It is a gift to be able to help others. I am so thankful God directed me on this journey.
So if you have family or friends in this business, support them like you would anyone else who started a business. Share their posts to help them gain a larger audience, try their products, offer to host events and let them share information with your network. Tell your friends about what they do and their products and services. And, consider joining them and all the fun they are having.
