Why small business owners need to have a Network Marketing business?
The biggest reason that I think small business owners should do network marketing is for the free marketing and community support they get. In our team, we have nutritionists, pharmacists, sales people, makeup artists, lawyers, doctors, marketing gurus. Imagine how rich we all are, by being part of this community and by having these people in our life to ask for advice or even for business.
When people ask me why I have a Network Marketing business, in addition to another business, I tell them that it is because of the lifestyle it creates. You don’t run your own business because you want a business. You run your own business because of the lifestyle you want to have. There is a saying: people don’t buy a drill because they want a drill. They buy a drill because they need to drill a hole. Are you with me?
My suggestion is to build options. When you are a small business owner you spend a lot of time at work and sometimes new business doesn’t come in as fast as you wish. Or, you love doing what you are doing but you want to enjoy more time with your family, create a bigger family, travel, or just relax with some books for a couple of days a week. The last one is my favourite. So, while you are staying focused on your primary thing you are also throwing in the network marketing option and suddenly you are building a decent side income that rolls in every month. Isn’t that cool?
How would it be if you could grow a money tree? In other words, how would you like to develop a business that would create a stream of ongoing income that would continue to flow to you whether you went to work or not? This is what Network Marketing allows you to build. It allows you to build an organization of hundreds or even thousands of other people from whose sales’ efforts you can earn an income, and your income will no longer be limited to you and your work alone, as it happens in your current business. Got that?
For your Network Marketing business to become successful though, you also need to have passion for what you are selling. My passion is for living an extraordinary healthy life, so my choice of company is in the health and wellness industry. I love seeing people become healthy from the inside out, once they start using our products. You might be interested in saving energy, drink coffee, travel; choose what you love and then start sharing that with your network of people, while painting in your mind the lifestyle that you want. Picture that?
This is the only industry which gives an ordinary person the opportunity to become an extraordinary person because it makes you a complete successful human through having financial freedom, time freedom, peace of mind, positive new friends. Is this what you want in life?
When is the right time to start a Network Marketing Business? Now. Time passes anyway, regardless if you do something or if you do nothing at all. If you continue doing what you are currently doing for the next 5 years, where do you think you’ll be in 5 years’ time?
