Wouldn’t you agree it’s better to have more than one source of income? The first 10 years of marriage I was out of work multiple times.
That’s when I began to realize having a part-time business of my own generating my own income was what I needed.
In the late 80’s I developed a part-time office coffee business. That generated $7,000- $10,000 a year of income in addition to my job. That was huge!
Now, take the idea of generating a new source of income and combine it with helping others.
Life has many unexpected events. These events can cause anxiety and fear. We're only human. But, how would it feel earning $500 - $1,000 a month from a new source?
And that source is directly from your efforts and the others that join you. Ahh, it's not trading time for money. It's building a business.
Or, do you want to replace your current income? Or, do you desire total financial and time freedom?
Understanding 'what the right network marketing opportunity is for you' has two key parts:
1. Trust but verify: Keep reading to learn how to find your 'best boat' to generating more income.
2. Align yourself with a leader(s) that is relationship focused, has business experience and is not profit focused. They will be dedicated to helping others (and you) succeed. Go here to learn more about what we're doing.
Are you someone who loves helping people? (Possibly a personal trainer, massage therapist, yoga or pilates instructors, fitness or health and wellness coach.)
Knowing what to look for and the questions to ask is very important to finding the right business.
It’s also important that you know your reasons for joining a network marketing opportunity. To succeed, your reasons need to be more than making money. A genuine interest in adding value to people is key.
Choosing a home based network marketing business that fits you can be confusing. It seems they exist by the boat-load. They also represent a diverse segment of products and services.
It can be difficult to know which boat has the best products, features, benefits, services, compensation plan and support systems to help get to your destination. To make the most of your new business venture.
You will find Network Marketing Companies in the following fields:
Nutritional supplements, weight loss, personal and home care, health and wellness, energy, cosmetics, insurance and financial products, skin care and anti-aging and different services as well.
Ideally you want to be in an industry that is thriving & showing growth well into the future. My favorite is health, wellness & fitness. Yours may be something else and that's ok. Just be sure to verify by doing some market research.
So, how do you choose your ideal boat, your new income source? (Your new business?)
Every network marketing company has its 'pros and cons'. Pluses and minuses.
Your first goal is to determine if the company you are considering is able to give honest answers to your questions, and not just tell you all the "good stuff" about how wonderful they are.
· Our owners are awesome! – (Too general, vague. Has no value)
· How much your upline is making... (I'm not your upline. General information is not helpful.)
· About how great their products are... (too general, not specific enough, need verification)
· How ‘now’ is the best time to join...(feels like pressure...not helpful. Need to verify)
· Our compensation plan is the best in the world! (too general, need specifics to verify,)
You’ve heard the phrase ‘talk is cheap’. If you believe what you are told without external verification, (verifying some facts) those words could be very costly to you in time and money.
Questions to ask: What kind of business (boat) are you getting into?

Trust…But Verify. Look for evidence that supports their claims.
Back in the 80's...
I was in a network marketing business for about 10 years.
I had modest success. I purchased my own products, which were a better quality than store bought. I consistently worked at personal growth training from audios and reading books. That was the big win for me.
Getting an entrepreneurial mind allowed me to succeed in two businesses over a 20-year period. One business has generated over $150 million in sales and continues to grow. My son replaced me as VP of Business Development when I retired to help my daughter who was ill going on 5 years.
After 12 years of searching and testing and being as resourceful as possible, she has recovered 95% of her health.
There is a learning curve with everything - even operating a boat. Allow yourself time to learn and grow. Remember a time when you took a new job or went to college.
It took a while to learn the ropes. Be patient with your progress. Starting a part-time business requires new skills and that takes time.
If you want to be successful in your new business follow this formula:
Times are changing. Having a new financial boat to generate your own income with the help of experienced supportive people is very valuable.
