It means investing your time in training people so that they hopefully become at least as successful as you are.

There's only one way of doing business that meets all these criteria for wealth generation.

Network marketing.

Despite any preconceptions you may have,repparttar 117814 fact remains that network marketing isrepparttar 117815 fairest business model of them all. Why? Because only with network marketing can repparttar 117816 member ofrepparttar 117817 organization that createsrepparttar 117818 larger or more productive organization be compensated commensurately even if that means he or she earns more than those higher uprepparttar 117819 ladder.

Unlikerepparttar 117820 traditional hierarchy of an organization of which you are an employee, you knowrepparttar 117821 one - you do allrepparttar 117822 work and your boss does nothing yet he gets allrepparttar 117823 rewards - in network marketing it doesn't matter how much money your sponsor earns, if you're more productive, you earn more. And because your sponsor benefits from your success in terms of commissions based on your productivity, it's in your sponsor's interest to help you be as successful as possible, just as it's in your best interests to help those in your organization be as successful as they can possibly be. Win win.

=== "It's always wise to raise questions aboutrepparttar 117824 most obvious and simple assumptions": C. West Churchman. === Do yourself a favor. If you've got it in your head that there's something illegitimate about network marketing, invest a half hour or so of your time in a bit of education. Watchrepparttar 117825 Brilliant Compensation video and make up your OWN mind. DON'T let other people, no matter how well- intentioned, deprive you of your freedom to choose what's in YOUR best interests. Sure, armed withrepparttar 117826 FACTS, as opposed to other people's OPINIONS, you may still decide, for your *own* reasons, that network marketing is not for you. Fine! But a little bit of independent thought may just open up a whole new world of opportunity.
