When I first was introduced to network marketing a while ago, it was like a BIG, FAT no for me. I had all the objections you may have right now:

  • I don’t have time.

  • I don’t have the money.

  • I don’t have the relationships, and don’t want to bug any of my family members or friends.

  • It’s a scam; no one really gets rich doing that.

  • etc.

I was uneducated. I did not know what I was talking about.

Becoming pregnant with my first child made me realize that I wanted more for my son. I wanted to raise him in a successful entrepreneurial environment. I wanted to be able to watch him grow, and not miss any big milestones of his life. I needed to find a way to stay home while being able to pay the bills and more.

As I was contacted several time by the same company, I finally decided to have a look at the opportunity. And while I was not 100% convinced it would work, I decided to do some researches.

I did my homework. I read pretty much everything I could find online about this specific business type. I came to the conclusion that if you are committed and willing to put the work into your business, network marketing was the best fit for me as a new mom who does not want to live her child, but still needs to pay the bills.

I am not saying that network marketing is perfect because it is far from that. However, I found that it is one of the best - if not the best - business models you can find today on the market. And here is why:

  1. The start-up cost are insignificant: some month are even free. With Arbonne for example $49 are enough to get started. You won’t have loads of products, but you can definitely start out with that.

  2. You do not need an inventory: nope, everything is dealt online which make the process even easier for you and for your clients.

  3. Your do not have to do any customer service. You absolutely have to take care of your client, but when it comes to customer service, refunds, problem, etc. the company takes over.

  4. It is the most equitable business opportunity: you do not need any diplomas, you origins do not matter, your gender neither, the only requirements are to be at least 18, to be coachable, and to be and do you.

  5. You do not need to invest money in your training and you can actually earn money will you train and learn and practice your business.

  6. It is highly rewarding: you get paid weekly on what you are selling, you get overrides to thank you for your great job as a trainer, you get gifts such as jewelry, chocolates, flowers, even cars, and trips to wonderful destination. You get cash bonuses as well! No kidding.

  7. Your success depends on you only: you have no boss, no employee, no schedule, no crazy objectives to achieve. You do you. And only you.

  8. You meet awesome people: the community of network marketing professionals is huge and everyone is supporting everyone. The only competition is the one with yourself. People will help you no matter what and that is big!

  9. You have so much fun because the products are fun, the people are fun and you get to meet so many more amazing people everyday.

Having said all of that, as much as it is simple, my recommendation for you if you decided to do network marketing is to go pro and take the business seriously like it is a real profession. Without some discipline, it will be hard for you to get to the level you want.
