I’m making a small fortune in Network Marketing. I’m certain the majority of you will rip on me out of ignorance, saying it’s a scam but I learned a long time ago, that to be successful, observe the masses and do the opposite. Read what Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki say about it in ‘Why We Want You to be Rich’. Research what Paul Zane Pilzer says about the industry. The company I’m with is different than most. We are not product driven, so we don’t sell marked-up products that people can buy cheaper elsewhere. We don’t have to buy hundreds of dollars (or any for that matter) of products each month that we don’t want, need or will never use. A couple of pre-emptive arguments for what I know is coming.
- It’s a pyramid: Nearly every organization in the world is structured as a pyramid. Whether it’s the military, a corporation, the boy scouts or the Elks Lodge. You have 1 HMFIC at the top with a few subordinates under him/her, then a few more under each of them and so on…

The difference is in a corporation, C will never make more than B until B quits, is fired, dies or retires and C is promoted to B’s position in the pyramid. In network marketing C can be the newest member and become the highest income earner in the company.
2) The people above you make money off of your efforts: Yes, just like in a traditional job. Your boss makes money off of your efforts and his boss makes money off both your efforts, on up the pyramid. Unless you own the company, you’re busting your ass 40 or more hours a week so someone else can make money off your work. In return they are paying you just enough so you won’t quit. In network marketing what you make is determined by how hard/smart you work.
This is a simple way to make money, but it is not easy. I’ve worked 10-15 hours EVERY week for 3 years around a full time job. Will I make money off everyone who joins under me? Absolutely. But I can also help them become financially independent, and that is worth more. If you want to rip on me, go ahead, it won’t change my paychecks, but there are people out there, especially in this economy, that have been searching for something like this. I’ve found a better way.
