If you were to ask anyone who has made it to the top ranks of their network marketing company, why they joined, their reasons would vary. They generally did not wake up one day and decide to join a network marketing company. For some individuals, they had been dissatisfied for years in their current profession. They either were not compensated well enough for their time or they were well compensated but they had to sacrifice time with their family because of all the hours that they worked at their job. Many of these individuals were exposed to network marketing by a friend or co-worker and they initially said no. But time and their own life circumstances eventually made them more open to this business and they joined because they saw the ability to create an income without sacrificing their family time.
For individuals who are already high-income earners, the ability to have time freedom is usually one of the top reasons why they join a network marketing company. The ability to work from wherever and whenever is the ultimate time freedom. Being able to take more than a week off without having to plan far in advance with your superiors and knowing that don’t have to change your vacation plans based upon the needs of the company is the ultimate time freedom. In more recent years, a large percentage of individuals joining network marketing companies were already considered highly successful in corporate America. They were earning six-figure salaries either with large corporations or as self-employed professionals. However, they were attached to their jobs with golden chains. If they didn’t work, then they didn’t earn money. Their companies or their clients controlled their time meaning they were usually working more than 60 hours a week. If they didn’t fulfill their responsibilities at their corporate position, then they faced the risk of being demoted or fired. If they were self-employed and decided to take two weeks off, then they had mountains of work facing them when they returned to the office. In addition, they faced the risk of losing new or existing business while they were away from their office and the client was not able to speak with them directly.
This is the beauty of network marketing. You can build your business from where ever you are. All you need is a laptop and a phone. Although it is best to meet new prospects in person, you can always direct prospective downline members to your website or explain everything to them by phone. Network marketing does not require a physical office. You can work from wherever and whenever and you are the one in control of your time. Not a corporation or your client.
Another reason that individuals join a network marketing company is that they needed to earn a considerable monthly income in a relatively short period of time. In some cases, the husband who was the primary income earner had lost his job or could no longer adequately provide for his family due to health issues. It might have also been the case where there was the failure of a business and now the family was deep in debt. The only way to pay of the debts was to start earning a monthly sizeable sum of money. Network marketing is the only industry where an individual can start earning a large amount of money in a relatively short period of time.
