Let’s communicate plainly and straightforwardly right from the outset here. If you read the title of this post and rolled your eyes, just give me a chance – stay with me and keep reading just a little further. If you’ve had a bad experience and are closed on this subject, just think about love, marriage, friendship, work, business, family or even just going for a drive down the street. I’m sure you’ve had a bad experience with every one of these, too. You got over it and maybe it was your fault, maybe it was someone else’s fault, who knows these things and who cares! We’re adults and that’s life, stay with me.
If you can do with an extra $200, $300, $400 or even more each week, then this post is for you. If you’ve got all the money in the world or you’re genuinely happy with the money you make and do not desire being your own boss and living your life on your own terms instead of someone else’s, then I’ll admit – this post is not for you. You’re a special individual and my hat goes off to you. For the rest of you losers, read on in misery, doubt and cynical irritation.
Network Marketing, like everything else on this Earth is not perfect. Furthermore, some people make stupid claims and yes, even lie, as does the Prime Minister, your boss, your mates, partner, neighbour, customer and everyone else alive on this planet at the moment with very, very few exceptions. You get over it every day. Okay – sometimes it takes you two or even three days because you’re that pissed off, but you get over it. Sometimes its your fault and sometimes its someone else’s but who keeps track of such things and who really cares, right? That’s life, stay with me.
You hate getting up early, when its still dark, doing the same thing every single day. Going to the same place every single day. Looking forward to the weekend every single day. Dealing with people you don’t like, doing work you pretend to be interested in, faking it the whole time, whilst kissing ass like the best of them. You know what I’m talking about, the fake laughs to the right people’s jokes. And all the while, you’re going slightly mad.
You get home and are so zombified that you can’t even communicate transparently with your partner and kids. You’re just pissed off all the time and there’s never enough money to pay for all the bills and crap you buy to escape the life you hate so much. Your life, the trap you’ve found yourself in and now you can’t get out. Some days you just feel like crying. How did it ever get to this? And yet the whole time, you smile and put on a performance Al Pacino would be proud of, holding up the Academy Award to a standing ovation of adoring fans and another $25 million in the bank for that year.
This post is not for Al, however, its for you. Hear me out, its not like you’re going to be Network Marketing by the end of this post. Take a chill pill and relax, I’m not here to scam you – the mainstream system has already done an exquisite job of that with you and everyone you know. Nice job Mr Rothschild! You must love it when your slaves cry pyramid, sitting at the top of yours, with that all-seeing-eye. Anyway, this post isn’t about mentally ill Illuminati bankers who dream about owning the world and everyone in it. This is about finally building up the courage to admit you could do with an extra $200, $300 or $400 a week. Is this making any sense? McFly? Is anybody home?
Its a different way. A different path and it takes some time to get used to. Remember when you fell off your bike and everyone laughed. You got over it, right? Cause if you didn’t and you’re still going on about it, you’ve got issues! Remember when you didn’t get the joke and everyone thought you were stupid? That was embarrassing right? But you got over that one, too. Well, this is similar. How’s this for embarrassing, not being able to take your wife and kids out for dinner and a movie cause you can’t afford it? What about driving that bomb your getting around in with the bald tyres cause you don’t make enough to drive safely to and from work on a rainy day? What about those maxed out credit cards you’re constantly asking your friends and family to lend you money for so you can meet the repayments? Why are you dreaming of a better life and doing absolutely nothing about it?
You don’t have to act like you’re in a cult to be in network marketing. You don’t have to make a fool of yourself and lose all your friends. You don’t have to act like you’re a brain-washed idiot, peddling products you don’t even care about. That’s not network marketing. I know these things happen and our profession has its issues but it doesn’t have to be that way.
If you’ve had a bad experience, grow a pair and get over it. If you’re not afraid of hard work and commitment and you’re honestly prepared to stick to it for a year, then its time to open your eyes and open your mind. There are companies out there who network with respect and dignity. It may be time for you to find one and get on with it. You just might make a life for yourself that you love and adore, after all – you deserve it! Okay, I’m leaving you alone now. Thanks for staying with me to the end and sorry I had to put you through such a hideous ordeal. Hopefully you’ll get over it! LOL! Have a great day…
