If you are considering starting your own business, and you've got access to, let's say, $50,000 in start up funds (a very modest assumption), imagine how profitable you could be, and how quickly, if you didn't have to hire employees, you didn't have to lease an office and/or store front and/or warehouse, you didn't have to pay sales or payroll taxes, you didn't have to spend one penny on R&D, graphics design, or development of promotional material, and you didn't have to hire an accountant, lawyer, or business consultant.
And, imagine how much more money might go into your pocket if you didn't need business partners to help you finance and run business. Think about it, and try not to become giddy.
Now for really fun part.
Imagine buying a McDonald's franchise for modest sum of one million dollars. The business fails. You call up McDonald's corporate and ask for a "Return Authorization Number" so you can get your franchise fee back along with a reimbursement check for your unsold supplies and stock.
While imagining this scene, also imagine sound of sirens wailing in background. That would either be paramedics coming to assist poor corporate officer who you've just induced into a fit of hysterics, or an ambulance coming to take you to a really nice, soft room.
In network marketing, not only is this not an absurd scenario, it's law! One of aspects of a legitimate, legal network marketing company is ability of a failed distributor to get a full refund (usually less a 10% restocking and processing fee) on all product and marketing material that is in resalable condition. So, if pursued conservatively and intelligently, there is a monumental reduction in risk relative to conventional business start ups, yet with a comparable or even greater profit opportunity.
Those of you who are already actively involved in network marketing, be aware that vast majority of your "outer circle" prospects (those who've never been involved in network marketing) do have at least desire to own their own business, as opposed to working for someone else.
You don't have to talk them into benefits of something they're already dreaming about having. But, they also have some very powerful, legitimate fears about starting their own business. You've first got to open their mind to idea that there is still a realistic way to achieve that dream, and then define, or perhaps defend, concept of network marketing (gratuitous plug: my "Case Closed" cassette tape is designed to accomplish both of these steps for you). Only then should you introduce benefits of your particular network marketing program.
Think of it like this: before you can pour fresh, hot coffee into a thermos, you must first open it, then pour old, stale coffee out, right? Think of your business-phobic prospect as a sealed thermos full of cold coffee.
Now, if you are considering starting your own business, or you want to but have always been apprehensive, open your own mind to network marketing.
Think it's too good to be true?
I challenge you - find catch! If you've never pursued a network marketing venture it must be for one of two reasons: you just didn't know about it, or you have a prejudice against it. And that's exactly what it is, a prejudice. You have prejudged this business based on what someone else has told you about it (usually someone who has failed at it, or who has also never been involved themselves).
In other words, you've chosen to adopt someone else's opinion of this business. Don't let other people do your thinking for you. Make your own decision based on your own evaluation.
Check this business out. Really do your due-diligence. And when you are done, I would defy anyone, even most devout skeptic, to not experience a significant paradigm shift. I dare you to look and not be intrigued!
