Self-employment is the surest way to wealth and personal freedom.
A Networking Model That Works
According to Eric Worre, one of network marketing’s greatest success stories, “A steady paycheck is an industrial-age idea.” Worre points out in the movie, The Rise of the Entrepreneur, that the career landscape has changed dramatically in the last few decades and that the average person struggles to find good employment, create a life that isn’t burdened by financial debt and build a lifestyle that fits the individual needs of a worldwide economy.
So what is really going on? What is the 21st century “goal-model” for people today?
Worre says that if you aren’t afraid to ask for what you want and if you aren’t afraid to put in the time it takes to build a network and if you think life is too short to spend it building someone else’s dream (working a 9-5 job) then you are probably an entrepreneur at heart and should consider building a business as a network marketer.
Here are a few highlights from this inspiring film, Rise of The Entrepreneur:
Like any business, in the beginning network marketing is hard, but for those who follow the system and do the initial work, it can become the dream business model.
- Start by asking yourself, “What do I have passion for?” Then find a company that represents your goals, your ideas and your lifestyle.
- How much “up front” money do you have to spend? There are many ways to become an entrepreneur but network marketing is by far one of the least expensive. Franchises and brick and mortar retail require thousands and thousands of dollars to just open the doors. With most good network marketing companies your greatest investment will be the time you spend not the money you spend.
- Would you like to work from home…or from a favorite vacation spot? If so, a home-based Network Marketing business is a great opportunity to take back control of your life and give you the technological tools to create a competitive edge in business.
Picking A Company
So how do you pick a company that will inspire you to create a business that can grow and expand to meet your needs now and into the future? How can you become part of an industry that allows you to think outside the box, does all the manufacturing and shipping, doesn’t require you to invest in inventory, and can offer you a way to make residual income for the rest of your life?
The answer is to look for a company that shares a passion with your lifestyle, has a proven marketing system in place, offers great support and a team mentality, and offers a way to create income now and for many years to come.
For those of us at New Path Nutrition, the answer was…and is…Purium. Why join Purium? Purium has an incredible product line of healthy, organic and wholesome superfoods…and they are manufactured and shipped from the USA. Purium also has a great gift card marketing system and has interfaced it with easy to use technology, personalized websites, and access to great coaching information! And with Purium, all of this is combined in one of the leading industries in the world…the Wellness and Health industry!
Helping and Sharing Not Selling
Network Marketing sales rely on word of mouth marketing. (That is why it is also referred to as Relationship Marketing.) You reach out to others, recommend products, and every purchase they make adds volume to your sales…and pays you now and every time they repurchase the product or other products from the company. If they recommend products to their friends, you get paid on their purchases too. How easy is that????
How is this different from other “sales” jobs? Well, most sales marketing is done by a few sales people with quotas. With Network Marketing you don’t have a quota, you have incentives. You get all the advantages with none of the risk. Minimal investment, personal freedom, most importantly residual income and a percentage of the sales of the people you introduce who to any degree, become active.
Last year network marketing was a 178 billion dollar business. To put that in perspective, the NFL did 9 Billion and the music industry about 16 Billion. Get the picture? This is a business model that is keeping up with the 21st century and how we do business, buy products and share socially. For those who say Network Marketing is a pyramid scheme, Worre says that the real pyramid scheme is corporate America! One person or family at the top and everyone works for him or her. In the Network Marketing business model there is someone at the top, but the company is built on a wide base not a pinnacle! Besides that, Pyramid schemes are illegal and would be shut down if someone chose to start one. The naysayers are often those afraid to believe in themselves or their dreams.
Think about it this way: Do we call people “losers” who buy at Target, Costco or Walmart? Of course not. Getting deals is the name of the retail game. It is the same in Network Marketing …customers are looking for products that are the answer to a problem, and at a price they can afford. In keeping with other 21st century retail models these products are delivered to your home.
Get Your Products for Free
Eric Worre says in his book “Go Pro” that the beautiful caveat of all of this is that if you want your products for free you can become an independent business builder and not only get your products paid for but with a little ingenuity and a whole lot of focus you can get your lifestyle paid for too!
Young people are comfortable with online and social marketing and have become some of the industries most respected marketers. They know the power of social media and building on friendships. They are willing to bet on themselves and work as a team.
So what other ideas should you consider when choosing a network marketing company? For those who wish to GO PRO it should have a path of marketing tools, training, support system, events, etc.
Here are other ideas from the movie the Rise of the Entrepreneur and from Go Pro that you should also consider:
- Is there already a natural need for the products?
- Do the products meet this need?
- Is it priced to sell?
- Is it priced for profit?
- Who are the leaders? Owners?
- How is the compensation plan structured? (There should be a way for people to make an income in a reasonably quick amount of time.)
In other words, make sure you pick a company that has a team of leaders, like those at New Path Nutrition who KNOW the products, understand the pay plan and want to build a team of like-minded free thinkers who are ready to live their dream.
Worre acknowledges that, like any business, Network Marketing has its challenges… but if you are an entrepreneur and you want the kind of lifestyle and fiscal freedom that a 9-5 job will NEVER create then come on board and GO PRO…because frankly you are worth it!
