What Do You Mean I Work For An MLM?!!

Written by Gary Kite

David Letterman once asked Donald Trump, 'If you lost everything and had to start again from nothing, what would you do?' He responded, 'I would find a good network marketing company and work hard.' The audience laughed. He then said, 'That's why I'm sitting up here and you're sitting down there.' The audience may have laughed first, butrepparttar last laugh actually goes to Mr. Trump. Why? Ifrepparttar 143849 laughers have a job, chances arerepparttar 143850 company they work for is basically an MLM company.

Your response may be ĎHuh?í and that was my response also until someone who is successful in an MLM company pointed it out to me. But how can that be you may ask? After all I donít hang out in malls and bookstores waiting to pounce on anyone who gives merepparttar 143851 opportunity. Well itís pretty simple once you think about it. The company I work for has a CEO and then there are several executives under him. Then those executives have Vice Presidents under them, who have supervisors under them and, well getrepparttar 143852 picture? So thatísrepparttar 143853 Multi-Level part. Then of course, everyone inrepparttar 143854 organization is encouraged to recommendrepparttar 143855 services ofrepparttar 143856 company. If you work for a certain restaurant, you will recommend people go and eat there. Thatísrepparttar 143857 Marketing part.

But thatís whererepparttar 143858 similarities end. My hard work at my traditional job is rewarded, butrepparttar 143859 people above me decide upon reward. In MLM, I am paid exactly in proportion to my accomplishments. Inrepparttar 143860 traditional company, slackers may get paidrepparttar 143861 same amount as me or even more, based upon seniority, who they know, or simply because their slacking is not known. You slack in MLM and you will not succeed, no matter whom you know or for any other reason. Inrepparttar 143862 traditional company, I workrepparttar 143863 hours I am told, ask if I can take vacation a certain week, take my pager and phone with me on vacation and sometimes even work on my vacation. Not true with an MLM company, since I am my own boss.

Of course, Iím not saying no one should work for a traditional company. That would be lunacy. We need them and their services and people do support their families by working for them. But isnít it hilarious that so many people hate MLM companies and then go to work for one every day. If you are going to work for one, why not work for your own?
