Have You Got The Energy For MLM?

Written by Martin Avis

If you have a dream of running your own business you have almost certainly thought about network marketing or MLM.

MLM companies that are well run offer a ready-made, repeatable business plan that, when followed correctly, can generate substantial incomes.

These same plans can also lead to dissillusion and dissapointment. How come? Surely if it works for one, it should work for everyone.

The truth is that no matter how goodrepparttar parent company, how ethically they run their business or how generous their remuneration plan, MLM'ers are still human beings. And human beings are just about as variable as you can get.

For some, network marketing isrepparttar 122576 answer to a prayer. These people will excel. They will earn large commissions and regular bonuses.

For others it will never be 'that simple.'

Just as some folk love mustard and others love ketchup, so it is with MLM. Some folk will just never get it.

At various points in our lives, my wife and I have jumped into MLM to 'help payrepparttar 122577 bills'.

Let me tell you, for us,repparttar 122578 effort always far outweighedrepparttar 122579 reward.

Sure, I personally know of several people who are genuinely making seriously big money. One couple made a 150,000 bonus check a couple of years ago. Nice bonus!

So, MLM isn't necessarilyrepparttar 122580 ogre that it is sometimes made out to be. Getrepparttar 122581 right company, with a good reward scheme and a great product that people want to buy - and keep buying - and you potentially have a winner.

But ... MLM isn't a magic wand.

The people who do make good money would probably make great money at anything they did. They work allrepparttar 122582 hours that God sends (and more).

They also have a very specific blend of personality traits that frankly, most of us don't match: they combine super sales abilities, with immense patience and teaching skills, AND they have boundless energy.

Why MLM Doesn't Work for Me

Written by Dennis Eppestine

When I first started Internet Marketing, I thought it would be a breeze.

As you can tell fromrepparttar above statement, I was very naive!

Of course, I went through allrepparttar 122575 usual things newbies always go through - posting links to FFA pages, receiving a zillion responses, jumping from one thing torepparttar 122576 next...YOU know!

And for some reason,repparttar 122577 items that always caught my eye were MLM. Of course, at that time I didn't even know what MLM was!

Now, I don't want to knock all MLMs. Some of them are legitimate businesses and are really great. And some of you may be making a fortune at it. If so - great!

In fact, for me,repparttar 122578 promise of $30,000 in 30 days was just too good to pass up! All you had to do was pay X amount of dollars and get 3 others to dorepparttar 122579 same, and so on, and so on.

And what did you get for your money? Usually nothing, or something that you could get for free anywhere but had to pay $49.95 a month for.

Or you join a new MLM opportunity while it's still in pre-launch. YAY! - you sign up 1,000 people underneath you! Launch day comes. Guess how many become paying members? ZERO!
