Today I want to address a question that I receive on what seems to be a weekly basis:
“Hey Richard, what Network Marketing company do you think I should join?”
A trend follower?
The one that promises to be the biggest?
The one that cuts me a deal?
The one with the best comp plan?
The one everyone I know is joining?
I ask one question first …
How long do you want to get paid?
How about YOU ask these questions of YOU before joining another opportunity:
- Would you use the products forever whether you got paid to promote them or not?
- Are the products going to be relevant in the marketplace for as long as you want to get paid?
- Who owns the company? Google them down ten pages and find credible reviews. Management matters but ownership matters the most.
- What is the company’s track record? Promises are nothing but marketing BS.
- What exactly is the culture of the company? Can you describe it? Is it taught? Is it enforced? Do the leaders and owners practice it?
- Does the culture match your values?
- What ARE your values? (most important things to you in life)
- Are you motivated to join by hype, promises, fear of missing out, or peer pressure? (if so, PASS)
This morning I did a zoom with a group of top rank leaders that have been with their company between 38 and 48 years. Some of them were second and even third generation distributorship owners, meaning their parents and grandparents built the business.
How long do YOU want to get paid?
Suck it Up Buttercup. Do your homework and make a good decision.
Your LIFE depends on it not to mention your reputation, credibility, health, relationships, and credit score.
