So many people have tried to start their own business! Tried and failed in their own eyes. So many people are looking for the get rich quick. But building a business, any business takes time, energy and effort. Heck, not even just businesses but anything of value to you… it took time! How long did you date? How long does pregnancy last? How many years of school did you do for your current job?
Everything worth your time and energy takes just that…time and energy.
What are your dreams and goals? How are you going to achieve them? So many people are stuck in the day to day slogging around in a job they can barely tolerate. A lot of families miss out on family time because one parent is often gone for extended periods of time to make a good living. I live in Alberta, so there are a lot of parents who work on the Oil Rigs. Thats a lot of time to spend away from your family and kids.
There are also a lot of parents that would love to be stay at home parents, but just simply can’t afford it!
Because of all the “get rich quick” schemes, most people think its a joke. But The thing is, its not. You need to be selective, but isn’t that true of most things in life? You dont buy the first pair of shoes you see, you try them on, walk around the store, even try a few more pairs before settling on which you want.
When you’re looking for a job, the same is true. You go for an interview, but you’re just as able to say no, as they are to hire you. You want to know what the team is like, who you’re working under, who will be investing into you and training you. If this is a career option, you’ll likely be looking into the company, what they stand for, what is their adage is! You, in an ideal world, would want to work with someone who shares your values.
Here’s the thing, you can! There are so many different companies out there.
What are you passionate about?
Health? Cooking? Makeup? Jewelry? Healthy Meals? Essential Oils? Educational Toys? Tea? Fitness? Books?
Each of those have at least a few businesses attached to them! So their are ootles of options! But how do you find the best one!?
Well to be successful you need to believe in what you do. Is it just a product to you, or does it better the lives of people around you in some way? Is it just something to make you money, or would you still use it if you couldn’t make a dime on it? You need passion and zeal! People are looking for someone they can trust, someone who is real and can spearhead the way to the destination! How do you do that?
Find someone you can trust! Only you know know what it is you trust about someone. Are they honest, do they stretch the truth, only you know what it takes for you to trust someone.
Look into what you’re passionate about and look for a company that does that!
Do you like helping people, feeding people, making people feel beautiful about them selves!?
Next look at the company itself. Delve deep. Dont just look at the website and think “its well done and looks pretty”… think! Do some research, talk to people you trust(and support your choice to try to better your life) and not the debbie downers. Bounce your thoughts and ideas off them.
What does the compensation plan look like, that is, how do you get paid?
A lot of companies have multiple ways of getting paid.
-Forced Matrix Plan
This allows you to have a specific amount of people on each level of your organization. You can sponsor however many you’d like, but you’re limited on where you can place them in your group. An example would be 5X7 matrix. It allows you to have 5 people on each level, but after you have 5 people on your first level, all other people you sponsor go down to level two and below.
In this type you only build on two legs, you have a left leg and a right leg, but what that means is that you only have two people directly under you. These ones I find would be difficult to make money on. As you generally dont make money at the same time from both legs. They often have to be even, and have the right amount of people, with the right amount of sales volume, and equal business ranks. Its tricky. It can be done, but it does complicate things.
-Breakaway(its hard to get an image of a breakaway plan because its just you… leaving with a bunch of people, or people leaving you, with a bunch of your people) so Chocolate it is!
A “breakaway” plan is used by some larger MLM companies. In these plans those that are successful and reach a certian rank then “breakaway” from your downline. Once they breakaway their sales volume is no longer counted as your sales volume. Instead you’ll see a small % of their overall group volume as a bonus. Generally ranging in the 3-6%.
The downside of this, is that when someone breaksaway you lose a chunk of the team you’ve built.
Here you can sponsor as many into your level one as you’d like!! In most cases though you are limited as to how many levels deep you can earn initially. Often to achieve below you need to reach a certain rank in order to benefit from those people.
This is when a company takes ideas from any plan and makes up their own! More and more companies are doing this. Like taking the Unlimited level ones(Uni-Level) and not limiting your levels down.
People that have tried and failed may have done so because they lack key elements in their personality, or were maybe afraid to show these traits! I know I was!
Do you have grit and determination? Have you had to work hard and overcome obstacles in your life to get to where you are now?
Are you a problem solver and love to face a challenge head on? Do you blaze ahead or need to be dragged?
Are you teachable and trainable? That doesn’t make you weak, it makes you confident and a team player!
Being a strong personality, having a thick skin and being able to take rejection is key. You need to know that what you do has value whether or not this person agrees with you. Your success doesn’t lie with them.
A lot of people say they dont have the time for a home business. You’re working to many hours already! Maybe so! But are you actually enjoying your life?! Are you missing key points in your kids lives because you’re working so hard for them? How long are you going to be able to do that? Dont you want to have time to enjoy that boat you bought, or the rv?
Are you starting to see that investing a little time and energy now may actually pay off in your future. Yes, you could be the few that make it happen within a few months or year. But most will have to work at it for at least a few years before seeing the BIG profits made. But just think… 2, 3 or even 5 years. Is that not worth your time and energy to have freedom? Freedom to spend time with your families, freedom to travel, freedom from the 8-5 grind…
Stop and think for a minute… what could your life look like in 5 years!?
So you’ve found what you’re passionate about, you’ve found a payplan you like….now you need your why. WHY!?
Your WHY is what will motivate you! Start simple and easily attainable. And grow from there! What do you want to see happen in 3 months? 6 months? a year? 2 years? 5 years? What is the difference between a dream and a goal?… A time frame! Does your WHY make you feel emotional? No? Dig deeper! What is your DREAM…
Now you can look at a company, and find something that could work for you! Find someone you think could help you down the path of success! You need to find a leader, who will help you grow and learn and teach you how to do the same!
I would love to chat with you more! Find me on facebook and send me a message or friend request! Lets build a team of people that can be free of the 8-5 grind and live life with our families and see our dreams, into goals that become reality!
Go out there and change the world! Be kind, everyone is somebodies someone. ❤
