This is always difficult to answer because this depends on a myriad of factors:
* How much time you have to invest * HOW that time is spent * The kind of marketing system(s) you are using * How you are using phone, if at all * What primary / secondary / etc. programs you are working * The compensation plan (is it fair and equitable?) * The proper mindset * Level of commitment * A sound and effective strategy to combat apathy, frustration, and rejection * Having a business plan * Effective tax planning * Supporting and training for your new partners
While there are people who have done this in a year, that is NOT norm. Yet there are people out there who will make you think it is.
Your average person might be able to dedicate 10 hours of focused effort on their business. Your average person has about $150 a month to spend on their networking business. Your average person takes about 3 months to bring in their first representative or customer.
Just based on all these averages, it would take an average of 7 to 10 years to build a 10,000 a month income stream. Warning: These are simply averages.
Your average person also quits in less than 10 months. By simply staying with one good, honest program and being consistent, you will build a substantial NMMF. You won't be average. In fact, you will be part of 3% that actually stay with one program longer than one year.
Unless you have a lot of start up capital, are friends with all major Internet Marketers, or have a HUGE opt-in list, your NMMF is going to take TIME and nothing but time to build.
By simply understanding that, adopting a long-term mindset, you WILL forge ahead.
So just like Lawrence and Debbie, there are a lot of Networkers out there that have a flashy website, excellent webcopy, and maybe they really are earning 5 figures a month. They seem to have it all. But because they violate Laws of Business, that income disappears.
You see them starting another "new deal" or promoting "newest, hottest" thing. They have to. They need to. Otherwise they'd go broke.
Just by staying course, you'll be one earning 5 figures a month - permanently.
