In my early days as a Network Marketer, I have encountered several problems recruiting people into my business. I presented my business opportunity well, I got them to be interested in the income and freedom they can have by owning their own business. However, many of them hesitated to sign up as a distributor and get the business started. After several encounters, I find out the reasons why.
People who are afraid of venturing into MLM or Network Marketing and even beginning the training must have some pretty compelling reasons why. After inquiring, not to my surprise, it was never about choosing to work for another persons business, but rather the crippling fear of beginning your own. Let's dismiss some of these fears.
Firstly, It takes a bit much money.
Individuals don't have mega money to invest in a business or rather, many find it risky to put money into a business.
Secondly, it calls for too much time and training.
Individuals don't prefer to work 80 hours a week for the beginning year or two to get their business running.
Thirdly, There's a bit much risk.
Many businesses fail in the first 2 years, and they'd have to quit their job, so there was no security.
Fourthly, They don't understand how.
Most individuals have never taken any business courses or had any business experience.
Surprisingly, 'I don't know how' is the single most common fear (that's where the MLM training comes in).
