Is Network Marketing Lucrative?

I remember hearing about network marketing and immediately thought “scams” where it was to good to be true. I held on to that for years. I recently began researching companies that came out with products that appeared to be good. I found many had a lot in common in there approach. I would like to share some of that information with you because when you are uneducated you can make costly mistakes or fail to see when a reputable company comes along.I use to cringe when folks would attempt to aggressively recruit me because of my position with people. It was difficult for me to say, NO because I wasn’t armed with information. My past experience as an educated has proved to be key when dealing with people about products and services.RED FLAGS!!!!!!!!!!NOW IS THE TIME!ASK FOR LARGE AMOUNT TO GET IN!NOT LISTED OR DOESN’T HAVE A GOOD RATING *BBB or Direct SalesONLY THE FOLKS ON TOP GET PAIDCOMPENSATION PLAN NOT SOLIDUSES AGGRESSIVE SALES TACTICSTREND PRODUCTWhen you see these types to things you need to stay away from these ideas because they can get you in a lot of trouble with those you bring into the business and those you sell to.GREAT INDICATORS!!!!!!!!GREAT PRODUCT OR SERVICESMALL START UP COSTSOLID COMPANYGREAT COMPENSATION PLANFOCUSES ON TEAM BUILDINGOFFERS TO ALL *meaning products can be for entire household*NO TERRITORY ISSUESYOUR EFFORTS COUNT TOWARDS YOUOFFER GREAT TRAININGANYTIME IS A GOOD TIME TO JOINIf you see these kinds of offers and can prove them you have just found a solid network marketing company that can yield you anywhere from 500-10,000 month.

Be Prepared

Whose motto was Be Prepared? Who knew that this motto would be effective for the rest of my life. As a young girl, I was a part of the Girls Scout and that was our motto. These two simple yet powerful words have made an impact in all areas of my life. Being prepared is something that is necessary to handle sudden changes, challenges and everyday issues.We are now offering training workshops to various businesses. Our initial target audience was to the health care facilities. The workshops are targeted to improve relations with the internal and external clients as this makes a marked difference in the success of one’s business.In sharing the growth and development at a networking event, I was asked to present the workshop for a corporate company. I accepted the opportunity as it occurred to me that the training would be beneficial for anyone in business. It was well received and now we are receiving more requests that are outside of the market we thought would best benefit from our service. Now we are traveling to cities/towns across the country.This is to encourage you to not only network but be ready to adjust to the requests that may assist you in the growth of your business. Remember you should always Be Prepared!
