How a Network Marketing Business Opportunity Can Solve the Rat Race SyndromeThe owner of the natural food store works long hours and her profit margin is small. She falls into bed at night exhausted, only to rise early tomorrow to do it all over again.

The brilliant manager for a cleaning company deals with personnel issues and angry employees. She comes home physically and emotionally spent and lives for the weekends.

The business employee drives home with a cloud over his head. He has been let go . . . again.

The 60 plus year old talented Christian radio announcer just finished another interview – it’s been two years and counting of unemployment.

The job market is tenuous. Job security has been reduced to almost nothing. It seems that no one is exempt.

No one, that is, except for those who are running home businesses and enjoying being their own boss.

More and more people are turning to network marketing business opportunities to take control of their future.

In fact, 400 people a day join a network marketing company.

But statistics are not real good for success.  Network marketing is not for everyone. I have seen many more people than I like to admit join a company with the plans to earn income to not only fail to make money but actually LOSE money instead!

If you are considering joining a network marketing company to earn extra income, ask yourself these questions first:

1. Am I a self-starter? Do I take initiative?

2. Am I coachable? Am I willing to follow proven strategies to build a business?

3. Am I motivated (i.e. frustrated enough) to push through the learning curve and inevitable disappointments to get this business going?

4. Do I have realistic goals and steps in place for meeting those goals?

If you feel you qualify based on your answers to those questions, then proceed to these questions:

1. Do I have the capital to invest to begin this business?

2. How much time do I have to build a business?

3. Is there a preliminary step I should take to position myself for success before joining?

Still a go? Great.

Your next step is to evaluate different network marketing business opportunities and begin to look for a good sponsor who will be committed to training you and seeing you become successful. I wish you all the best as you do your research!

Network marketing is a great way to leave the rat race behind! I know I did it and you can too!

I totally agree with you!

In this life time, you have to motivate yourself to make your own money! Working for companies won’t get you much, unless your a doctor, lawyer, nurse, etc, etc.

I promised myself that I’ll never work for another company again, but my own.

Hi Amy,

This posts really puts things into perspective…these are some scary times we are living in. Luckily network marketing is a great option for many people to secure their futures. I liked the questions you ask to see if it’s a right fit…very thorough!

Thanks for the post!


p.s. I didn’t know 400 people join a network marketing company every day! Interesting!

Hi Amy,

Great wake-up call post to educate others about the benefits of joining a good Network Marketing company.

Just because network marketing is a brilliant business model, it does not mean that all companies or opportunities are great. I really like the questions that you share for guiding a person to explore more! It is definitely not something for everyone. How could one possibly embrace this professional if they do not even know what is needed for success in the first place?

Keep up your great work, Amy!
