My earliest intro to MLM was with a home party program for some type of household decor.
I got some kickoff leads and started holding home parties. It was fun to be the presenter and people make orders left and right. I got a few bookings and was right into profit mode. The downsides, as I recall, included mainly the fact that I had to pack up all the stuff into my car, unload and set up a display at someone’s home, and then repack it after taking orders at the end of the evening.
So I looked for something I deemed “easier.”
I always wanted something fun. I loved having clear beautiful skin, so skincare was for me! We had a system of doing demonstrations on one half the face. The team I was with drove across two states to attend trade show events. We did complimentary demonstrations and pushed our product! It was a LOT of fun for me being with this group and we were go-getters. We also had mailer postcards in which we claimed to make you look 10 years younger in about 10 minutes. Each upfront sale netted about a hundred dollars, so it was paydirt, up until you actually added up driving costs and hotel costs for the trip! As time went on I was so excited about this product, I could only think about it and nothing else. I visioned getting all my actual friends to use it. I was obnoxious. I know they have a saying that “ignorance on fire” is a good thing, but for me, it led me quickly to the NFL (no friends left) club.
Therefore, I began studying how to “Keep My Mouth Shut.”
This method didn’t work so well. While I continued to try new network marketing products, I continued to keep my mouth shut, and so,
I essentially Quit Network Marketing!
