In these uncertain financial times, one really needs a Plan B even if it’s just part time. Perhaps a supplemental income to help pay for a needed vacation, new car, home repairs, medical bills, retirement, etc.
Humans are living longer lives and retiring at older ages. In addition, 150,000 people each month are reaching the national working-age. It’s estimated that it would take generating 10.6 million jobs today to equal the percentage of people working just 3 years ago.
Now though it may sound like the dream situation, Network Marketing isn’t for everyone. Though anyone can try, it’s takes a certain type of personality to achieve financial success without being told each day what to do. That’s now meant to insult; it’s just that some people prefer the familiar comfort of having a job. The problem there is that it may just be a false sense of security. If a company starts laying off employees, how long would that feeling of security last? Unless you’re at the top of your company’s food chain, it may be a detrimental mistake putting all your eggs in one basket.
I would recommend to those considering a MLM company, to endorse a service or product that you would purchase even if you weren’t a consultant for the company. Fortunately there are opportunities in just about every genre: nutrition, cosmetic, gold, silver, coffee, groceries, travel, law, music, fitness, even hemp. Interesting side note: several years ago, Woody Harrelson gave me a sweater made of hemp. It was extremely comfortable, and the first time I had ever worn a hemp product. What does that have to do with this topic? Nada, just name dropping. Seriously, just emphasizing that there’s an opportunity out there for everyone. If this is something that you want to investigate, you’re sure to find one that piques your curiosity.
That’s my two cents. Whether you’re looking for a Plan A, B or C, I wish you phenomenal success.
