OK, there's something that I've been thinking about a whole lot lately. And for those of you that are reading this, let me ask you a few questions:
1. Have you ever interviewed for a job (other than, maybe, flipping burgers) where you expected to get into the company, with ZERO education in whatever field you're applying for, and actually got the job?
2. If you did get the job, did you become an absolute success, where you were making stupid money every month?
If you answered "NO" to any one of these questions, then keep reading. If you've answered "YES" to both, then you're one of the .05% of the people in the world who, without ANY education, can do anything. With me saying that, I totally envy you. You're definitely one of a kind.
For the rest of us 99.95% of the world's population, who need to learn something before we can put it into practice, let me ask you this:
Why in the WORLD did you foot $300-$500, and let yourself get coaxed into a Network Marketing "opportunity" without receiving an education on how effectivly work the business?
Congratulations! Most of you just wasted your money...just like I did.
How many stories on here have you heard of people saying "I was in MLM, worked it for 5 years, and got nowhere, until I found this program, and now I bathe in Benjamins"?
It would seem to me that after thousands upon thousands of testamonies like this, that we would get the hint that, just like a regular 9-5 job, starting a Network Marketing company with ZERO education on it is a recipe for failure.
(By the way, on-the-job training in Network Marketing is a joke. I don't know about you, but I'd rather learn about the business before I get into it, rather than spend hundreds of dollars on an opportunity, and $25 a month on a website, and not get anywhere with it.)
If your upline is telling you to rape the relationships with your list of friends and family, to do anything that has the word "hurry" in it, and tell everyone within 3 feet about your opportunity, or wonder why you would want to do a silly thing like read the companies Policies and Procedures, GET OUT!!! They don't know what their doing and neither do you.
(Oh, and if they're making a lot of money doing those things, ask them how many of their TRUE friends they have left. I would guess not a whole lot.)
So as of right now, I'm out of the Network Marketing business. I'm going back to "school" to find out how to do this business effectively, without sacrificing the relationships I've spent years and years building to do so. I wish you all nothing but success.
