Network Marketing the low cost business, blessing or curse?

I have been in network marketing now for four years, I am on a journey to the top of a mountain.

My journey has been treacherous at times, people have yelled at me along the way telling me I couldn’t do it, people have got angry suggesting I give up my cause and get a regular nine to five job (which I do have). 

People always mean well of course and really they have my interests at heart, and feel like they should look out for me, besides their experience tells them differently... but are they talking from a position of experience?
Most of the time they talk from a position of having never been involved with a network marketing business, and those that have, didn’t actually do much with the opportunity, if they were honest they would probably say the timing hadn’t been right or life got in the way for them, thus their negativity is usually misplaced if they analyse their true experiences.

I have sympathies with those that have not got their network marketing businesses off the ground.  Life does have a way of worming its way in to your plans as you make your way up the mountain of success, the nine to five, the social gatherings, family politics and issues, health, death, births and the list goes on.  But if this was a business that you invested £30'000 in, had taken a loan from the bank and you had to honour those repayments back plus rent, business taxes and pay staff wages.  I’m sure these obstacles that life put your way would not even factor as issues, you simply would have to continue or probably risk losing everything. 

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”–  Henry Ford

 Network marketing affords people an easy route to get into business with zero to minimal overheads, the ground work has already been done, infrastructure in place, products selected and established, billing plus many other aspects already taken care of and often a small down payment allows you to have access to these business models with the prospects of making lots of money from them.

The low buy-in comes with its own problems. 
Because there is very little at stake life’s obstacles easily derail people from succeeding in network marketing because there isn’t enough neck in it for them, not enough chips on the table.  Easy in... easy out.
I have seen this over and over again with fellow professionals in the business, de-valuing their business and letting excuses get in the way of their dreams.

“Nothing can withstand the power of the human will if it is willing to stake its very existence to the extent of its purpose.”   Benjamin Disraeli

This is why one must have a strong desire and vision if they are to succeed in network marketing.  Self development is key to strengthening this part of the mind, some experts call this part of the mind the WHY muscle.

In my opinion not having much at stake in the terms of money should not detract you from building a successful business, remember your dreams and ambitions are always at stake. So the low entry fees need not be a curse but a blessing which allows you easy access to a sky’s the limit business.

If you take up network marketing or are already involved with it you must develop your why, exercise this part of your mind, expand it and protect it.  Only a strong why will keep you going when life tries to weigh you down up the mountain,  good luck in getting to the top,  I'll see you there!
