When you elect to become a business person you have a very important choice to make: Will you have money work for you, or will you have people and systems work for you?
To put money to work for you, you usually require great quantities of capital to invest so that you will produce a high return or profit. If this is not a viable option, then the alternative is to have people and systems work instead. This is called leverage.
Multi-level Marketing is very well known for giving independent representatives leverage, enabling individuals to get paid on the productivity of team members, rather than only their personal efforts. For some people who are stuck in the employee mindset (trading their own time for money) this may raise questions on the legality and ethics of these opportunities, but people who have these questions are generally ill-informed!
Our job as Network Marketers is to correctly inform our prospects, so that they understand our industry, rather than enabling them to hold opinions on something that they don’t actually understand! Most individuals are open to learn the big picture over keeping their head stuck firmly in the sand!
There are many benefits to building on your personal base of knowledge, as you build your business: Firstly, you will be more confident when approaching your future business partners, as you can be positive that you have a solid understanding of the industry. Also, it will validate your personal choice to become involved in the industry, so that negative comments from friends and family members will never stop you from working towards your dreams! People are usually afraid of things that they don’t understand, so be sure to have no reason to reconsider your own choices about your business by making sure that you are exceptionally well informed!
