Everyone seems to have some idea of what network marketing is and may have even been involved at one time or another in a network marketing company. Many people have heard of Amway, Mary Kay and Herbalife; which are all network marketing businesses.
Some of the people you talk to about your business opportunity or products may believe they know what it’s all about because they had a second cousin, who had a friend who didn’t make any money in network marketing. And of course they think they can’t either.
In my experience most people don’t really understand what we are doing but definitely have some preconceived ideas. To be able to help those people get a better understanding you need to be calm and provide clear answers. Its true many people don’t make any money in network marketing. But that is usually due to them not actually doing the work it requires.
If you don’t want to share what you are doing and you don’t want to promote your products or opportunity then network marketing is probably not for you.
However if you are excited about learning how to build your own business then with some hard work and possibly some additional personal growth you can learn how to be successful. It’s no different that when you first started to work a job. You needed to be trained. Here though you’r training to be your own boss. The CEO of your own business.
The good news is that your in business for yourself but not by yourself!
Look for a network marketing company with a teaching and training system. In some ways you will be going back to school to learn how to become successful.
