Is Direct Selling For ME?

Has someone ever asked you where did you get your hair done, or your haircut, what store do you shop at, what do you cook with, ever recommend a movie, or t.v show? That’s Network Marketing at it’s best. The difference is your not getting paid for all that FREE advertising you are doing. When was the last time BET, Ciroc, YouTube, or Facebook sent you a check?

Direct Selling, Network Marketing, MLM, Internet Marketing, Door Salesman, Car Salesman, Insurance Salesman, whatever name you put on it is all the same. We are commissioned based earners and represent the largest segment of Millionaires.  What do you think when Jay Z or Beyonce goes on tour? Do you realize they are selling their albums yet no one is calling their tour a scam or pyramid scheme.  When the O Jays or Temptations take the stage no one is booing and calling for them to stop singing.  That’s Marketing!

Look at it this way.  When you get dressed in the morning unless your clothes have your name and logo branded on them somewhere you are Network Marketing and not getting paid.  I’m not one for buying the expensive items in the stores. I shop where the prices are reasonable as I’m not making a dime off of the logo stuck to my butt or the logo on my shoes so why not save my money and have more to spend on things I like.

You carry a $200 purse, wear a $100 pair of shoes, bills overdue, bank account overdrawn and yet $60 a month to start, run, & maintain your own business is too much. Who’s fooling who?  You just increased someone else s bottom line and yet you are one paycheck from being homeless, and yet you still refuse to market YOUR OWN PRODUCT.

Here’s something funny.  The movie Red Tails just came out. I’ve seen numerous posts on FB that it was a great movie. The company is getting FREE advertising through word of mouth from social media. That’s network marketing. Financially who benefits from this movie? Are they going to cut you a check for encouraging others to see it?  We as a community just gave millions of dollars for a movie. We could use that same money to reshape our community. Teach our children how they can work for themselves.

**my point was to show how we are already doing something that so many people feel is a scam or pyramid scheme. My statement was in no way referencing the non importance of seeing the movie.**

Changing the Mindset of our Youth starts NOW with YOU!!  How bad do you want to make a change? You could simply start small by supporting your local neighborhood businesses and build from their.  Once you realize the power of the consumer (that’s YOU) you will be much wiser the next time you pull out that almighty $Dollar$.  Invest in yourself, Invest in Your future and learn the importance of Residual Income.  With that Knowledge all roads lead to Direct Selling!

When you look at Direct Selling ask yourself this: Is the timing right?  Is the product/service marketable and in need right now?  Is the price point affordable to the masses?  Is the product/services attainable outside of your community? Are you willing to share with others what you are doing?  Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone?  Can you do this part time?  Are you excitable enough about what you do that others will ask you about it?  Are you willing to stick with it until you arrive financially?  If at least 4 of your answers are YES …. Then Direct Selling is for You
