Be a World Class Sprinter
I started my first MLM home business back in 1990 with a company that had exceptional products, but was lacking in several other areas, that caused an eventual collapse of the company and many lost thier dreams. Now they have a different name, and will remain small and insignificant in the marketplace.
I spent 10 years with that company, and attained a high level and great pay check, but it was unsustainable, due to the inherant weaknesses of a poor pay structure, inexperienced management team, and lack of a proven system of duplication.
Had I been able to see the future, or been wise enough, I could have saved myself 10 years of trial and error, and the sinking feeling of seeing the dreams of several hundred associates in my downline get washed away with the rest of the company.
The moral of the story is, do your due diligence when looking for a company to work with. Be a critical thinker, and take the time to read the policies and procedures, investigate the pay structure, do a bio on the CEO and management team. Check a few MLM watchdog sites for clues or information that may spell trouble down the road. Without a proven, duplicatable system in place, you'll be fighting the current alone, without a paddle!
Nothing good or worthwhile comes easy, it takes time and effort, learning how, doing the right things and duplicating those things to earn a walk away income that will be around long after you are.
When ever you hear the hype and get in before it's too late, or another rich quick pitch, remember these words...
