Is Network Marketing For You?
Making the decision to leave the corporate world and the traditional brick and mortar work place is a major step in anyone’s life. When you start your own home business you take on the sole responsibility for your personal income. You are the boss but you are also the work force. There are no limits but there will be challenges.
Currently home base business generates over $20 billion in the US alone with approximately 8 million people working from home. According to Mark and Renee Yarnell in their book Your First Year In Network Marketing, network marketing is the path to wealth in a home business. They estimate that “95% of those who survive 10 years in network marketing become wealthy beyond their wildest expectations.” Becoming a successful marketer, which can lead to such rewards, is not merely a process of just signing up. Sadly, many quit in their first year.
Working from home is a business decision that can literally change your life if you are prepared to do “what ever it takes” to make it in such an industry.
The beauty of network marketing is that although you are in business for yourself you are never in business by yourself. The mentoring systems set in place by all successful network marketing companies ensures that everyone is supported throughout the training process and during the life of their business.
It’s important to understand that it is up to the individual to take responsibility for their own training and skill levels, not their mentor. The faster you train yourself and achieve the necessary skills the faster the growth of your business. It’s not based on luck but rather what you work for.
Before you make a decision to start a home business there are personal qualities that you will want to develop and nurture within yourself in order to achieve the extraordinary levels of success that networking offers.
