R0bert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump
on Network Marketing
Let’s be honest.
If you were to ask most people how they feel about network marketing or even a ‘home based business‘, they would have something negative to say.
- “It’s a scam.”
- “It’s a pyramid scheme.”
- “It doesn’t work.”
Since I said let’s be honest… let’s be honest.
Honestly, Network Marketing is the best way to create the life you want without creating your own products.
The reason people say what they do is because…
- They tried it and failed so they assume it’s not legit. This is about as rediculous as saying swimming is a scam because you tried it and you can’t swim.
- They weren’t entrepreneurs to being with. They had no business being IN business for themselves.
- They got into something that promised they’d get rich quick and maybe it was a scam. A lot of gifting programs border on that. But that doesn’t mean network marketing is a scam. It means the deal they got into was a scam. Legitimate home based businesses with great products and services people want and benefit from are not scams.
- They want to save face and rather than admitting to others they gave up, it’s easier on their ego and pride to cry scam. This is actually what happens more times than not. People give up. People quit. People don’t want to invest in themselves or their education to learn how to be successful. Go figure.
Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are two examples of prominent business leaders in the world and they have this to say about network marketing.
Donald Trump said: “Years ago, many people were opposed to a business model known as franchising. Many people questioned the legitimacy of franchising. Today, everyone in the world knows about McDonalds. Network Marketing, being a new business model, is experiencing the same opposition franchising experienced years ago. Network marketing has proven itself to be a viable and rewarding source of income, and the challenges could be just right for you.”
“There have been some remarkable examples of success, and those successes have been earned through diligence, enthusiasm and the right product combined with timing. As with so many issues, there are tangibles and intangibles involved, but success is not a total mystery, and that applies to network marketing, as well.”
Donald Trump on Letterman: Dave; “What if you had to start all over again, what would you do?” Donald;“If I had to do it all over again I would’ve started building a Network Marketing business.” audience laughed at him. Donald’s reply; “That’s why I’m sitting up here and you’re sitting down there.”
Robert Kiyosaki said: “Building a B-quadrant business is not an easy task. So you need to ask yourself, “Do I have what it takes? Am I willing to go beyond my comfort zones? Am I willing to be led and willing to learn to lead? Is there a very rich person inside me, ready to come out?” If the answer is yes, start looking for a network marketing business that has a great training program-one that emphasizes education and personal growth.”
“I’m often asked if network-marketing is a pyramid scheme. My reply is that corporations are really pyramid schemes. A corporation has only one person at the top, generally the CEO, and everyone else below”
“A true network-marketing business is the exact opposite of a traditional business model. A network-marketing business is designed to bring you up to the top, not keep you down at the bottom. A true network-marketing business does not succeed unless it brings people up to the top.”
So if people question you and wonder “why on earth did you join a network-marketing company?” Don’t get angry and don’t feel bad it’s just their ignorance coming out. Chances are they’ve never tried it for themselves and if they did obviously they were doing it incorrectly or they did nothing with it at all.
If everybody truly understood how Network Marketing works. EVERYBODY would want to be a Network Marketer.
I’ve created my own products, authored a book and training, and have turned my hobbies into income which I share here in an article I wrote titled “Putting Your Heart and Passion to Work“, but I also listen to those who are where I want to be. I understood the model of network marketing (some are in a model of MLM) and direct sales… and I also understood the power of the internet.
Taking network marketing and direct sales business model and partnering it with the internet has been the perfect storm for creating income streams from home.
- No more making a list of family and friends.
- No more drawing circles on napkins and white boards.
- No more hotel and in home meetings.
- No more chasing the sales.
By putting together your automation, your value, your story, your purpose and what you have to offer online, you can create income streams with network marketing. And yes, it still takes work, so don’t think it’s a free ride. Know what to expect.
I have a network marketing and direct sales business I run solely online. You can learn more about what I do here. If you’re interested, I’d love to partner with you and help you along your journey.
I’m cheering you on my friend!
Have an awesome day!
