have all been there. A friend calls and shares what he claims to be the
best opportunity ever: a company with an incredible compensation plan,
great products, and we are at the right place at the right time. The
company is in “momentum” and this is the perfect time. Timing is
critical in most any MLM you join and while you can always find success
in most any company if you put in the work, joining a company during a
key growth phase may help maximize your success as well as others. There
are four phases of growth that MLM companies experience however, what
is momentum and when is the best time to join a MLM company? How do you
know you are joining a company that will experience massive growth, and
provide the long term opportunity and stability you are searching for?
There's a huge difference between network marketing and pyramid schemes. Learn the truth here.
Q: Some friends continue to try to recruit me into network marketing deals that seem like some type of money game or pyramid. Other friends tell me they're illegal and I'll get into trouble. How do I know what's legal and legitimate?
A: To help you understand what network marketing is, I must first explain what it isn't. First, network marketing isn't a pyramid scheme. Pyramids are programs similar to chain letters where people just invest money based on the promise that other people will put in money that will filtrate back to them and somehow, they'll get rich. A pyramid is strictly a money game and has no basis in real commerce. Normally, there's no product involved at all, just money changing hands. Modern-day pyramids may have a product, but it's clearly there just to disguise the money game.
Recognize the things that trap our dreams—and overcome them.
A lot of us never see our dreams come true. Instead of soaring through the clouds, our dreams languish like a broken-down airplane confined to its hangar.
Through life, I have come to identify five common reasons why dreams don’t take flight:
1. We have been discouraged from dreaming by others.
We have to pilot our own dreams; we cannot entrust them to anyone else. People who aren’t following their own dreams resent us pursuing ours. Such people feel inadequate when we succeed, so they try to drag us down.
