So you want to be a Network Marketer? Have you looked at the facts?
So you want to be a network marketer? Have you really thought this through? Why don't we examine the facts and see if you still think it is a good idea?
So lets start with the job pros and cons.
Possible 401k or retirement plan.
Possible quarterly, semi-annual, annual raises.
Christmas/ holiday bonus.
2-3 weeks paid vacation every year.
The relationships with the people you work with.
There may be other pros but these are the ones that come to mind.
Income is usually fixed (even in a commission job).
Raises are not guaranteed. And in tough times may be frozen.
Bonuses can be eliminated or postponed until "things get better".
Employment security, once a big point is now a thing of the past.
Paid vacation, but if something comes up you may have to cancel your plans. Company first.
Insurance. Is a job worth health insurance?
Network Marketing pros:
Make your own hours. Work when you want to.
Meet and develop relationships with really neat and unique individuals.
Have your own business.
Have tax write offs.
Earn what you are worth. The sky is the limit.
You can start part-time and build your business until you replace the income from your job.
Help other people become free from their jobs.
No Boss! This is a big one for me.
Have time for your family and friends.
Have more money to donate to causes that are dear to your heart.
There are more but these are the ones that come to mind.
Network Marketing cons:
You have to pay for your own insurance, although as a business expense it is probably deductible.
You have to work, but in a job you have to work also.
No paid vacation, but if your business is built right you have income coming in whether you are working it hard or on vacation.
no retirement package. (see above)
It may take a long time. (opposed to your job?)
There may be some other cons but these are the ones that come to mind.
Well I made up my mind a while ago. I know I made the right choice and am sure you did also.
Here is a book that has helped me understand what is really involved in building a strong Network Marketing Business. If you are interested please feel free to give it a read. It will save you years of failure and frustration.
