“If I had to do it all over again, rather than build an old style type of business, I would have started building a network marketing business.”
-Robert Kiyosaki, Investor, Entrepreneur and Best-selling Author
I love this quote!
If you are new to business, and in particular network marketing I strongly believe that building a network marketing business is one of the smartest things you can do with your time and money in today’s economy.
In order for you to be really successful in network marketing, it is important to understand why you should even bother. The truth is that it takes time, effort and energy to build a business. Most people are quite comfortable with where they are, so why bother?
Below are the top 12 reasons why starting a network marketing business right now is one of the smartest things you can do.
12 Reasons Why Network Marketing is the Business of the 21st Century
Here is the big question: At your current place of work, who is making a living and who is getting rich? It is whoever owns the asset. The asset is the business. This is where the control and wealth is. By working as an “Employee,” you are spending your 8 hour day building someone else’s asset. You are earning a living, and the owner is building a fortune. You are not only making 10x less money, but also paying twice as much in tax.
2. True Financial Freedom
One of the top reasons for owning your own business is that it leads to financial freedom. Meaning, being able to earn lots of money without you needing to be there. The problem with a job is that you are “Selling time for money”. This means that you can never stop working because your income also stops. With a business, you have hundreds of customers that are generating the income. This means you can go on holiday for a month and be making more money when you come back than when you left.
3. Use the Internet…(or kick yourself)
Important Point: The Internet is changing the world as we know it, and you are living in the middle of it right now. In 50 years, you might look back and think, why didn’t I make the most out of it? There has never been a better time in history to start a business and especially one that involves connecting with people. You can now contact hundreds of people with a push of a button. The fact you are reading this right now proves it’s effectiveness. You will kick yourself if you do not take advantage of this.
4. Living A Rich and Rewarding Life
One of the biggest benefits with a network marketing business is the personal development, which many people are not even aware it exists. To become successful, you have to help other people become successful. It’s very rewarding to watch other people grow and become better people. The fact that you can make $100K per year, working only 4 hours a day, which then gives you all the time and money to enjoy life is a massive bonus.
5. Are You Taking Advantage of the Population Boom?
You may not currently be aware of this but, the human race is currently expanding exponentially. Simply do a Google image search for “world population growth“ and you will see world population is going off the chart. Now, this is going to cause a lot of problems for some businesses, but is great for people businesses like network marketing.
6. What Job Security?
For over 100 years, the reason people clung to jobs was because of security. Today, with more and more people getting made redundant in a shrinking market, job security no longer exists. People are now looking for a more secure way to earn a living. What is more secure? Having one income stream with a job or an income coming from a hundred places, which you get from having a customer base? Today, jobs are now the risky option.
7. Want To Work for The Next 50 Years?
People now have a clear choice. Do they graduate from university with $50,000 of debt? They can then either get a job, earn a living and retire in 50 years on the equivalent of minimum wage, or, they can build a business and have the opportunity to retire after only 3-5 years. This is the Industrial Age moving in to the Information Age at it’s most obvious. Those who realize this, will be the ones who will benefit massively financially.
8. Would You Like An Income That Builds Itself?
When you get to a certain point in a network marketing business and you have your team in place, your business then begins to build itself. You cannot do this with a job. This is how you can go then away on holiday and be making more money when you come back than when you left. Thats leverage!
9. The 9-5 Job Is Broken!
In a 9-5 job, there is only one winner and that is the boss. The reason you only get 2% pay rises (if you’re lucky) is because it comes directly out of the bosses pocket. The more money you make, the less money he makes. In a network marketing business, the more money you make, the more money your business partners make. It is a true win/win. This is not only the business modal of the future, it is the business modal of right now.
10. A Shrinking Job Market
With increasing population and more traditional businesses closing down due to the Internet, there are now less jobs for people to go for. This means employers can and do take full advantage of this, asking people to work longer and longer hours for the same money. This is becoming more and more common and is making people work in a fear based environment. Do you want to continue to live like this?
11. Getting Poorer with Rising Prices? – Inflation!
So, the government statistics state that inflation is around 3%…so why then are our gas, electric and phone prices going up closer to 10%? You don’t need a degree in maths to know this doesn’t add up. The truth is that if you are not getting closer to a 10% pay rise each year, then you are actually getting poorer. Inflation is a stealth tax which the masses are not educated to realise.
12. What Do Stephen Covey, Richard Brandson and Robert Kiyosaki Have In Common?
I am going to finish with this. Some of the biggest business people all around the world are either involved or recommend network marketing, including Richard Brandson, Robert Kiyosaki, Stephen Covey, Jim Rohn and T Harv Eker and many more. Who are you going to listen to?
Do I need to say more?
