A home business with options

I’ve been in the Network Marketing industry for the past 4 years. Two years ago I made a huge decision to leave the company I started with and go a different direction. I had to find a way to work “smarter” vs. harder. As a mom of three, a corporate America employee and a wife, my time was very limited in building a residual income. I took my business to the Internet and started learning all the ends and outs of being an Internet Marketer. It has allowed me to free up some time and still build a healthy residual income.

My company now has two simple product lines that are consumable, affordable and have a high profitability factor. This was important to me. I wanted a product that was easily understood and one that was affordable to the general population and one that was consumable. And it has worked great with my internet marketing strategy.

I came into this business as a recruiter/business builder. But not everyone enters the network marketing arena with this same mentality. In fact, more people get turned off by expensive auto ships and no option BUT recruiting. Our company has have a strong retail product that can be driven through parties and retail events if that is the path you choose to take.

So, whether you want to replace a full time income some day or you want to earn an extra $200 per month, it’s great to have options. Parties, fundraisers, craft shows, internet marketing are all a part of the network marketing arena. However, not every company gives you those options.

So, when you are looking for your “plan b” really look at your choices and see what’s out there. Everyone is different and people like to have options on different ways to work their business. Make sure your company has a “buffet” of ways to make money. When you discover your niche, it becomes your passion and will help move you forward.

BELIEVE Success!

Great advice. I remember joining a company in the past that even stoped you from doing any form of internet marketing. They had no tools to support online marketing.However when i came accross . An internet marketing program tailored for network marketers, i knew i had to change direction. I've since joined another company and applied the strategies. Now i am recruiting like crazy online.
