Are You Working Your Way Out of a JOB?

If you are in network marketing, are you working your way out of a job? After all, that is the ultimate goal, at least that is the case for most network marketers although some never think about that. Most people who join a network marketing company understand the concept of residual income. They also understand that network marketing gives them the best chance to earn an income that can replace their linear income. So, they find a product they love and start feverishly building that business. Or, at least they attempt to. But there are two types of network marketers, the 2 percent who actually have success and earn a full-time income and the 98% who earn little to no income.

If you are in the 2 percent, are you building long-term, lasting income? Or, are you building something that will potentially cause burn-out because of the monthly requirements? That depends. On what, you might ask? On what is written in the contract -- the company policies and procedures. Did you know that with some companies there are clauses which state "no matter what level of achievement, you must bring in new customers each month" or you must have ongoing sales" or "you must bring in x number of new distributors each much to qualify for commissions?"

Do you see any problems with those clauses? If not, here is what is being said -- you can never quit building your business because you must have ongoing sales or ongoing recruiting. Not only that, to meet the requirements, you can't even take a month off.

So, if you are like most people who joined network marketing and want to build your business once and stop actively building when you are ready -- you won't be able to. That is, if you want to keep receiving the residual income you've built up to that point.

So, whether you are in the 2 percent or 98 percent, you really can work your way out of a job. How? By learning how to evaulate a company before you join them. Wouldn't you rather find out on the front end what the requirements are instead of finding out later?

You can begin the learning process by reading the free ebook, Success in 10 Steps. Most people who read it are very glad they did, but some don't.

Be empowered to prosper!
