So have you? Network Marketing is a fantastic way to build your own business and work from home. As you know I already have a thriving Internet Marketing Business Coaching biz established. I wasn’t looking for a network marketing company. I didn’t find it, it found me. It’s a God thing.
If you’ve been following me this past year, you already know that this has been a very challenging year for me as my Mother has been so ill and I am the “designated daughter”. There have been so many times this year that I have gone days and weeks without touching my business. It has had to survive on autopilot often. In all honesty, my income has take a pretty big hit. I haven’t taken on nearly as many new coaching clients as I normally do, or done any live workshops because my schedule frequently changes without warning. Mom has been in the hospital 5 times this year and has had 3 surgeries. As the main caregiver, it’s me who makes those 130 mile round trips to the city and stays with her while she’s there. At 88, mom is slower to bounce back and requires a lot of care.
Does this ring a bell for you? Are you torn between your J-O-B and your duty to your loved one? How about income. Has yours suffered because you are the caregiver? Unfortunately this is something many are facing or will face as your parents age, and you need to be prepared.
That’s why Network Marketing is such a good fit for caregivers. You can take it with you anywhere there are people. It’s a people business. You need to love people and care about others to build a successful network marketing business. Caregivers are like that.
According to Harvard Business School…
When looking for a good Network Marketing Business, be sure to look for a debt free company that has been around a little while and is established, but is still on the ground floor. In order to be considered the “ground floor opportunity” Harvard Business School states that the Network Marketing Company should be at least 18 months old with under 250,000 distributors. If the company has less than 100,000 distributors, Harvard Business School considers it to be a once in a lifetime opportunity! There’s nowhere to go but up. Way up! (That’s not what Harvard said, I said that)
Harvard also says the company should have a product which is unique and highly consumable, unique in this case means that you have an exclusive product that can only be purchased from your company’s distributors. Having a product that is highly consumable means repeated sales, thereby guaranteeing customers loyalty versus a one time sale and having to locate new customers.
As I said earlier, my Network Marketing Company found me. I was introduced to the product, fell in love with it, but I had no intention of doing the business. However, the business end of it took off as though it had a mind of it’s own. Of course being the entrepreneur that I am, I saw the potential for an additional stream of income to go along with my internet business, and with the amazing results I’m experiencing from the product, I couldn’t help but tell others about it. Voila` my new network marketing business was born. In just a few months my business is booming. I’m making a really good income, my team multiplies weekly and it’s something that I can share with others easily; from those I talk to in the elevator, to the health care staff, to those I chat with in the cafeteria and waiting rooms.
Why am I telling you this about my business. Because I want you to know there are options out there that don’t tie you down or require big investments yet still allow you the opportunity to make a great income. If you are looking for a way to make money by working from home, a Network Marketing Business is a fantastic way to do it.
