Why I Love/Hate and almost Quit Network Marketing

 

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!

To your massive success!

About the Author:

My parents grew up during "the great depression." I was shaped by that kind of limited belief. Now my life is spent imagining and creating the possibilities instead of feeling cramped into a mold predestined for me by someone else. I feel free. I am a child of God's creation, a wife, mother, and grandmother. Besides that I am much more. I am having the best time of my life! I am enjoying many blessings and working so that others may be blessed as well! I live in the east coast U.S. now in the gorgeous part of Virginia we call the Shenandoah Valley. I am a retired mathematics teacher and my husband and I have Leonberger dogs. My husband is a hard worker and he is detailed and meticulous in his work. Work is his love gift. He is quiet mostly, but has an amazing mind and is so funny. After all these years, I still love him so much. I, on the other hand, am easily distracted and do mostly what seems like a lot of fun to me. I enjoy people, and great ideas, and enjoy listening to wonderful conversations. I like the way words go together and the feelings they cause. I am thrilled with humorous stories and fascinated by the way the pieces of life fit together. I enjoy the fields of advertising and sales. I love to travel, and I treasure the special bond between mankind and canines.
