How difficult can it be right ? We see so many people trying to build a business in the Network Marketing industry and so much confusion from people that seem to struggle to understand exactly what it takes to create a successful network marketing business.
I always say the answer is in the very title of the industry that we are involved with ! “Network Marketing” is exactly what it says.. Networking with people and marketing our products and services. It sounds easy when you say it in it’s most basic terms but actually it really doesn’t get any easier than this. Where the problems occur for most people who are looking to start a business in Network Marketing is that they think initially that the company will more or less sale itself and that all you have to do is show the marketing plan to enough people and they will instantly get rich.

Of course thats far from the truth and we all know if it were that simple then everyone would be walking around with bulging wallets and living like the kardashians. The real truth is that like anything in life becoming successful takes time, money, and effort. There is simply said no such thing as “Get Rich Quick” and what every person should ask themselves the question first before ever getting involved with any kind of business “Why am I doing this and am I prepared to see this through for the long term. Making money in network marketing is relatively straight forward and a simple formula can be applied and if followed exactly for long enough then results will appear over time. Now for some that follow the formula results will sometimes be faster or slower and that really is purely down to each individual and the amount of time effort and creativity they put into their businesses.
I am not going to talk about the formula in this post as I will make many posts over the coming months explaining the formula so before we get down to the nitty gritty what you first have to understand is that starting any business is a BIG CHALLENGE and you have to be really prepared to accept that your now about to enter into the world of entrepreneurship.
For most people coming into the industry of network marketing they come in from the point of view as somebody that has a job maybe works 9-5 and is really looking to change something in their lives.. Maybe they need to earn a few extra dollars to pay the bills or pay back the credit card debts or maybe its something bigger like paying the mortgage or car payments. There is also a small % of people that are looking to go full time and work from home and then there are people like myself that just value freedom above everything else.
There are so many reasons why people want to earn more income but the truth is that not everyone is prepared to really fully understand what it takes to actually create something that can pay them on a regular basis for years to come. Becoming a good entrepreneur requires time and energy because everyone starts with nothing and a foundation for long term success has to be built and this is the part that most people don’t get. They think they can build a business fast but with no foundation.
So before you start with your online journey there has to be a recognition that you are now stepping into the world of business and entrepreneurship and any business opportunity that you buy into will not be a guarantee of success but a guarantee of hard work and education and implementation and perseverance and patience. You will need to switch your mindset from employee to self employed and all your decision making must be based around how best to build your foundation and what actions are you going to take on a daily basis to grow your business.
Now your work is about to begin and it will start with adopting or adapting a mindset that is focused on learning and hard work. In order that your business pay’s you like a business then you have to be professional about what you do each day. If you treat this as a hobby then don’t expect to get paid and in fact your probably more likely to lose money and precious time that you will never get back.
