I'm on both sides of the fence with this subject. It really depends on the person.
I once heard a statement that went like this... "I've never met anyone that made it to the top of more than one compensation plan at the same time". It sounds pretty true. In fact, I believe working part time
it will take most people a full year to master a single product and their business.
Notice I said "Master" it. That means one out of seven people buy your product of join your team.
But over time
I have become good at selling both technology products (video email) and nutritional supplements. So, I manage two businesses and two teams. Can it be done...of course it can!
I may not make it to the top of the compensation plans but over time
each of my businesses have grown into steady income and I have a great time with my different teams and companies.
So, it's really up to the person, their goals, and their abilities. If you want to make 60k to 70k a year you can manage two businesses fine. But you may not make it to the top of any comp plan.
Notice I repeat the short phrase, "over time
Prove you can make it with one company! As I stated before, this usually takes most people a full year. If you can make it with one and you have trained your team to duplicate then take the next step and venture into another product sector or another compensation structure. I work a binary plan and an unlimited wide – 8 deep matrix comp plan.
The ability to grow two teams can really only happen in this day and age. To make something like this happen you must have incredible reach, the kind of reach that only Internet Marketing can provide. So, your ability to market on the internet is a must!
Anything can be accomplished over time, working with two companies in a 3 year period is totally doable. But the reality is most people don’t stay in the business long enough to become successful with one company.
