Welcome to my world. It’s so good to have you here, we have so much to talk about, so stay tuned.
My name is Phakama and I created this blog to share my knowledge learned from my Network Marketing business journey. I feel a like a lot of goodies about this business are still raped in a brown paper that many of us are not seeing the bigger picture, many of us are not believing that Network Marketing is a business one can make to earn an extra income and even make a living if they stick around long enough and build the business properly. I’m so prepared to unpack this brown paper and expose what actually is in the Network Marketing business.
Honestly, I must tell you how much I hate selling anything to anyone. However, I have learned one thing in this journey that to make a living and a successful career is not always only about doing what you love and passionate about. Sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve got to do to earn a living. How many jobs have you worked on but hated these jobs with all your heart? but guess what you had to continue working on these jobs despite the hatred you had on them, just to make a living right?
Passion is something that you can develop as you work on growing your business or career. Just as you do with a skillset, you cannot say that I can’t sell, I can’t prospect without having to first learn those skills. A skill is something that you can learn, take a course if need be, or else you will be just making an excuse. I am an IT professional by profession when I figured that I want to work as a software developer I never said but I can’t code. I knew that I needed to go to school to study IT and I did. So is sales, so is prospecting, so is Network Marketing business. YOU CAN ALWAYS LEARN ANYTHING IN LIFE.
It’s a Scam
This saddens me and excites me at the same time. A lot of times we are being scammed by people claiming to help us make quick cash. People need to understand that there are no quick cash schemes, you will always work meaning time, effort, consistency to earn money. I’m happy that we are staying alert of the scams out there, however, we are not careful enough if when someone presents an opportunity to make you quick cash without you doing anything but just giving some cash away, why would that even tempt you?
This is one of the reasons I started this blog to make it clear to my people how to differentiate between network marketing and something that is not a network marketing but so-called network marketing. I’m so concerned because this business is huge and is paying and I want each and every one of us who is still in the dark, to understand this before they regret not paying attention to it.
It’s a Pyramid Scheme
A pyramid scheme is a fraudulent system of making money based on recruiting an ever-increasing number of “investors.” The initial promoters recruit investors, who in turn recruit more investors, and so on.
Pyramid Schemes are Illigal!!Why would you wanna get involved with such?
Network Marketing has fallen into the same category for some people’s understanding. There is a recruitment of other distributors in Network marketing and is completely different from the way pyramid schemes work. I will talk more about how this is not a pyramid scheme if it involves the recruitment of other distributors.
This business offers an opportunity for each one of us that joins this business to grow their earnings as much as they want to, and yes it is highly possible for you to earn more than the person whom you join if you work more than they do in terms of the company’s requirements that you must reach to earn some money, and each company’s compensation plan differs.
How I do I know if it’s legit?
If you are considering getting involved with this kind of business, it is your responsibility to do a proper investigation about the company, the business itself, the compensation plan, and much more you need to know before jumping in. I will unpack this a lot more in the upcoming blog posts. However, I should mention one of the most important. I always highly advise you to always give an ear to the person offering you a Network Marketing opportunity, it could a breakthrough for you.
Don’t ever think that you know this business and you are not interested, listen first, to what the person has to offer. And my no. 1 advice to you is that please and please make some time to attend the company’s function or meeting or presentation whatever you call it. Yes, do have that one on one meeting with the person, then a big part of your investigation or research is attending the formal conference of the business.
It is where all the leaders are gathering sharing the business plan to the new people, the growth of the business, the strategies, and everything that involves the growth and success of the business. I’m loving this because it is where you get a bigger picture and without any doubt, you will be able to decide whether this is something you can do, give it a try or you were just not interested. Without having to take unreasonable decisions out of desperation with the hope that this can make you some quick cash so that you can get out of debt o anything needed cash quickly.
