Direct Selling the New "9 to 5"

The economy seems to have created an environment where having a 9 to 5 doesn't secure your future and longer. Times like these have pushed people into supplementing their income with home based businesses or part time jobs. Majority of these home based business are what is called "direct selling" or most commonly know as "Network Marketing". I could almost feel the cringe from whoever is reading this blog, once those words were uttered, but you would be surprised how many people make a decent income that can sometimes provide for that necessity that seemed unreachable with their full time jobs income. I just the other day was watching "Good Morning America", and it was mentioned, that due to the high number of lost jobs a lot of people have flocked to direct sales methods, because of its quick cash availability.

For those of us who are afraid to check out alternatives to the 9 to 5. I am here to say don't be afraid to try some of the corporations that have been around for years. You have corporations like Avon, Mary Kay, and Quick Star just to name a few. If you do decide to go with a newer company just make sure you do your research and verify the company at BBB ( Better Business Bureau) on-line. Multiple streams of income should be a focus for everyone.. A guaranteed check from your full time job, can sometimes not be so guaranteed when they cut back on the budget and you're the first to be handed the pink slip. But becoming your own boss predicts your job may be around a little longer.

"Network Marketing" is a very good idea and pack with measurable reputation of SUCCESS. However, one must truly understand what this meant because your success will depend on how well you understand the business. To me "Network" is the total effort and hardwork of a group of INDIVIDUALS ('A Team) set forth in order to be successful in the business. There's a saying that states "a general is just as good as the troops under his command make him - Gen. MacArthur" Train your troops the philosophical way of SUCCESS and your Business will grow.

Anonymouse I agree with everything you stated. Being involved in a "MLM" You have to be teamspirited and have a want to help people because in essence helping others to get where they need to go potentially aids you to success as well.
