A lot of people don’t understand network marketing and are impatient waiting for MLM results. Here is why I am devoted to Network Marketing.
When I started internet marketing in 2011 I was a completely different person than I am now.
I had created a personae for my music that I was creating at the time that was egotistical and narcissistic.
I promoted an album I had created and spammed everyone I could.
A year later, I wrote a memoir about my 16 year bout with Alcohol.
I uploaded it to Amazon and made about $70 a month for a while, and spammed everyone I could about my book.
Another year later, it was Affiliate Marketing, and yes, I spammed everyone I could about my products.
I also invested $2,000 in HYIPs (High Yield Investment Products) and got burned, the money literally wiped out of my digital “liberty reserve” account.
Then, I invested $1,000 in Binary Options (Forex trading) and watched the platform I was using “freeze” during the most important second of either winning or losing the bid, and losing all my money.
You can say, I was getting burned all over the internet.
I laugh now, but I was crying then.
I wanted so bad to work from home, but all my money was vanishing and I didn’t know what was legit or not.
Then one day, I found a product that I thought could help my “social anxiety.”
It was also a business I could promote.
I had learned a little about residual income from selling the “recurring income” products on Clickbank, and this was kind of the same.
I then learned it was a network marketing business.
I decided to learn more about it because I was tired of getting burned or just losing money.
I turned to YouTube and watched every video I could about network marketing.
Luckily, I found the best MLM trainers on there and they gave me very important advice, such as:
- Skipping around MLM companies won’t improve your success.
- The money is very small in the beginning until you build a team that duplicates and creates leverage.
- It is a long-term plan, 3 to 5 years minimum.
- A lot of people will quit, but you only need 3 to 5 leaders.
- Must do personal development
- Must always learn more and get mentoring.
- Consistency is key.
These tips that I got from all the trainers made me pretty strong and I knew that rough seas were ahead and that I wouldn’t quit, and I would see it through until I was on a beach somewhere.
Well, the tears came and a lot of people on my early MLM teams quit. . .
I experimented and failed many times and got back up.
Some days I really threw in the towel and walked away from the computer for a few days.
Had some ridiculous things happen with the company, but of course I learned to take responsibility for all of it, even if it sucked.
Why did I take all this like some martyr?
Because, the leaders had what I wanted.
I had heard plenty of “entrepreneur and success quotes” to know that leaders “fail forward” in this business.
But, at the end of the stick was a six or seven figure income that these leaders were making each year or month, like clockwork!
Yes, it looked really good and I was addicted.
It took me three years to break the $1,000 a month barrier in my network marketing business.
I had to go back to a “job” several times during those three years because my vision was bigger than my income.
Every time I walked out the door to the new job I looked back at my wife and was heartbroken.
The only thing that kept me going in network marketing was the vision that was instilled in me from watching those videos.
I knew it could work.
As the months went by, my monthly paycheck from network marketing would improve a little more.
A couple years went by, and I knew I could come home.
My hard work was paying off – my compounded efforts with content creation online was yielding enough leads and sales.
I knew my true dream of financial freedom was coming.
The feeling itself is life-changing!
This is why I am devoted to network marketing.
I got the vision and the residual income and the feeling of helping others with their dreams is truly undeniable.
