Are you work at home mom?
You used to be fairly limited by what exactly you could do from home. Work at home mom… this has a whole new meaning. Thanks to network marketing we have an abundance of moms running virtual empires these days with all sorts of products and services. However, it has always been an industry dominated by woman it has seen a dramatic increase in men joining for just that reason. The potential is unlimited! It used to be the only options were pretty much vitamins, jewelry and household products. Now you can find a network marketing business in just about every niche, from all the familiar products to waist shapers, travel, candles, aroma therapy, Forex and even feminine products!
So whether you are a work at home mom or dad, there is clearly something for everyone. People are retiring their spouses, taking the trips they never imagined they could take, eating in the restaurants they previously could not afford. All because they took a chance on this thriving industry of industries.
MLM is often still mistakenly referred to a pyramid schemes or scam. Did you know that the industry is heavily regulated? Not to say there are no scams out there, but if you do your due diligence and research a bit, you will find that these companies are real and people are making real money. Did you know that one of the oldest has been around for almost 60 years? That’s longer than most other types of businesses!
As for the pyramid, where do you work? Think about it. Is there an owner? Are there managers, supervisors and different levels of workers? Will you ever make as much as the owner of the company? Not likely if the company is doing well. How about the managers and supervisors? Generally you could, if you worked hard and became one yourself. MLM is structured the same way. If you work hard and take your business seriously, you can work your way up the ladder of network marketing success and often you have the ability to surpass the people above you, financially if you really want to. In most network marketing companies you, as a work at home mom, are limited by you and you alone.
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!! FACEBOOK IS A PYRAMID SCHEME!
No it’s a business. Look at the image on the right. It is structured like this because those who work harder on a concept that sells get paid more. That is just the ownership structure, the business model is going to be about the same. The idea/know how guy is usually first. It’s his idea right? No one would make money if he did not have the idea or the vision to pull it off. Whether he created it or he had the vision and made it happen, he is the main man and usually at the top. Then you usually have the trusted advisers. People the guy on top knows, or at least believes, are going to make this company a success and a successful company is good for everyone.
But guess what? In network marketing the company structure is present but there is another structure as well. The part that you are a part of. The part that can actually have you earning an unbelievable income and you were not hand picked. You get to decide when to jump in and where you are going to be on that ladder. Sometimes you get a little lucky on top of that, but mostly it takes hard work, accountability, learning, vision and more hard work.
Social Media brings prospects upfront and center
Speaking of Facebook, with everyone on some sort of social media or another and having their cell phones with them everywhere, you are literally a click away from your perfect prospects. Almost everyone is in your market now, depending of course on what you decide to promote. Many people are actually in multiple businesses because they can be. They have the time to do it and they have customer reach like never before. Which brings in multiple streams of income for them. Just because you have easy access to them does not mean they will buy from you. You want to think about what type of business you want to promote, what gets you excited? What is going to make you wake up in the morning and be enthusiastic to get your day going? Having the passion will make you do what you need to do every single day.
As a new work at home mom, find your niche and dig in. Learn everything you can but don’t wait to start building! You don’t need to know everything about your business to create something amazing! Constant personal development is a must. Read the books of successful entrepreneurs. Keep your head in the right place. Success can come to everyone, but not everyone will reach far enough out there to receive it.
