Network Marketing

What Is Network Marketing?

Its Essential Nature

To me, network marketing is a strategy in which:

  1. You get paid for sales you make.
  2. You also get paid for the sales of salespeople you recruit.

It really is that simple. Making it more complicated does not change its nature.

The Bad News

  • Most of you won’t make any money.
  • Statistics say less than 3% will get into the money ring.
  • Your family and friends will most likely not be supportive.

The Good News

  • In my opinion, you can be successful by choosing to work harder.
  • Don’t worry about the 97% who fail. Focus on the 100% of you that is going to win.
  • You don’t need your family and friends to succeed. If fact, I am telling you not to call on them.
  • If you have been working hard and have little to show for it, don’t worry. It is almost certainly not your fault.

Many Advantages to Networking

For some, a vacation involves deciding where to go, what to do, when to do it, who to do it with, how to pay for it all and when do you have to leave it all to come back to the job you are so keen to get away from for a week, maybe two.

I don’t know about you, but the previous paragraph looks more like a business plan with a to do list than a vacation. For me, a vacation involves sleeping until 10AM or later and maximum pajama time.

Which brings us to the advantages of networking and affiliate marketing in particular and online marketing in general.

  1. Who you work with is up to you.
  2. When you work is up to you.
  3. What product or service line you represent is up to you.
  4. Why you are building a business is up to you.
  5. How do you get to where you want to go? Keep reading.

Who You Work With

Unlike family and those you work with on the job, you get to pick who you work with in your business. This means you get to work with like minded folks who want the same things out of life you want.

When you attend functions and training you are not at work with your ‘associates.’

You are hanging out with friends.

You are strengthening that friendship and adding more bricks to the foundation of your wealth.

As far as family and co-workers go, leave them for last if at all. Why? You are going to have enough negative energy pointed in your direction without any coming from someone who knows your hot buttons.

Let’s get you to a place where when you to talk to Cousin Financial Genius or Uncle Economic Ph.D. on a GED you are doing so with with a five figure monthly commission check in hand.

When You Work

Your schedule is almost entirely up to you, particularly if you are like me and building your business 100% online.

Preferably, I get up early early and get my work for the day done.  Some days I just don’t feel like early early and so I might do a late night with Tim.

You are in the drive seat and you decide.

What Do I Sell?

Whatever you like.

Whatever you are interested in.

I chose the product line I am selling because I can think of no more honest a product line to represent.

I like it. I like having a drawer full of it

My point is, I am a 270lbs. country boy who wears a flat top. I am going to take a controversial stand and say Mary Kay cosmetics would not be a good fit for me.

Sell things you like, use and believe in.

The ‘Why’ of Your Business

What moves you?

What are the reasons for building your business? Only you can answer that but while you are answering that question of yourself, frame it like this:

What are my reasons that will move me to work when I am sick and when my faith seems to have fled?

Answering this now will help you minimize wasted days.

My why? I have a long litany of things on my bucket list. There are many, many things on my list of things I love to do.

No where, not once, is ‘get up before the sun rises to go somewhere to be told what to do all day by someone else’ listed as one of my favorite things in life.

My personal breakthrough moment occurred when I realized I was terrified of going to the mailbox, terrified of what was going to go wrong next.

I knew the stress of that was going to kill me as a young man and I had too much to live for.

How Do You Get To Where You Want To Go? Network Marketing

Years ago I was given to understand there were 4 main ways for an American to become a millionaire. It broke down something like this.

  1. Microsoft. Being one of the original employees of Microsoft was a golden ticket. Employees buying shares in their company has created something like 3,300 millionaires.
  2. Network Marketing.The number of millionaires created by network was somewhere north of 1,700 when I saw the list. It would not surprise me to find that our field has surpassed Microsoft by now.
  3. Pharmaceutical sales. Jokes aside, being a big pharma rep has created a lot of wealthy people.
  4. Own a dry cleaning business. Yep, not sexy at all but the dry cleaning  business, if it suits your temperament, is a solid path to wealth.

Networking is the only business on this list that anyone can choose to pursue. The others have barriers to them such as the ship having passed for Microsoft to the high start up costs of starting a dry cleaning business.

Reasons your choice to pursue network marketing is a good choice:

  • Low start up costs.
  • You can work part time or in your spare time.
  • Network marketing training develops your leadership abilities as few things do.
  • Our business model, as networking professionals, is a proven system with a track record of producing millionaires as well as million dollar+ annual incomes.

Franchising and Network Marketing

I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people’s efforts than 100% of my own efforts.
-John D. Rockefeller

Franchising is a known, effective business model that has created a lot of wealthy men and women.

You create a successful business model with proven profits.

Then, for a percentage you show others how to do the same thing. This is essentially what you are doing. You have bought a franchise and are in the business of creating multiple outlets.

Home Based Business Success: Be Determined

What does it take to create home based business success?


Home based business success is one area where determination is a characteristic that is shared by all. There are no exceptions.

Since it is Monday, the day when we all have to drag ourselves up from sleep and out the door to our jobs, I thought is a good day to provide some quotes on determination.

When we start applying the same level of determination to our businesses as we do to going to our jobs so we can eat, those wheels that will move us to success start to turn. -Tim Singleton

Home based business success stories always start with someone who is determined. Are you?

Determined Quotes

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
Leonardo da Vinci

If your first run, or your 21st run, at home based business success fails, remember what Claire Cook says,

“If plan A doesn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters – 204 if you’re in Japan.”
Claire Cook

Point is, be determined to not stop until you succeed.

I cannot remember the author, but he wrote, “I will either succeed, or I will die. Which one happens first may not be up to me, but those are the only two outcomes I will accept.”

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston S. Churchill

“He that can have patience can have what he will.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“Don’t change your mind just because people are offended; change your mind if you’re wrong.”
Criss Jami

“You will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.”
Shannon L. Alder

“People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. When you change for the better, the people around you will be inspired to change also….but only after doing their best to make you stop. Live your truth and don’t EVER stop.”
Steve Maraboli

“It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses.”
George Eliot

Thinking about starting a home based business but don’t know if now is the right time? Think about this.

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”
Karen Lamb


Monday morning is the perfect day to take a few minutes and consider your determination to work from home in a home based business.

Ask yourself how determined are you?

Visualize the freedom you will have to do what needs to be done in your business and then spend the rest of the day being happy, being with your wife and family, being involved in causes you care about.

Best Regards,

Home Based Business Success
