Are Network Marketers Freaks of Nature?

The idea for this post came from listening to the song Freaks of Nature by Kansas.

When you tell most people that you are joining a network marketing business they look at  you like you are crazy, like you are a freak of nature.

The Free Dictionary defines freak of nature as “a thing or occurrence that is markedly unusual or irregular.”

We are taught while growing up that we need to go to school to get the best education that we can so that we can get a good job. We work away at that job until the government tells us that we are old enough to retire. At that point we get to live comfortably on Social Security and our pension or 401k.

Why It is Good to Be Uncomfortable

A Minute With MaxwellI joined John Maxwell’s A Minute with Maxwell a couple days ago to get his “word of the day” emails.

Yesterday’s word was discomfort.

John Maxwell says that you “need to learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable.”

Jim Rohn used to say “You need to do the uncomfortable until it becomes comfortable.”

We all know what our comfort zone is and we like to stay there. It’s safe in our comfort zone.

We don’t grow when we stay in our comfort zone though, especially when it comes to our network marketing business. For most of us, if we stayed in our comfort zone then we probably wouldn’t have even joined a network marketing company.

How to Succeed in Network Marketing – Some People Will, Most Won’t

John Kalench“Some will, some won’t, so what – next!”

John Kalench said this about prospecting people into your network marketing business in Being the Best You Can Be In MLM.

This advice applies to a lot of things. I experienced it recently myself. I went to an event put on by the leaders in my network marketing company a few weeks ago. Several people found out that I am building my business online and were curious. They wanted my info so that they could contact me when we all returned back home.

None of them have.

How Do You “Do” Network Marketing?

Don’t be a Lone Ranger, but you have to be different and stand out.

I spent a few days in Orlando, FL at a big network marketing event put on by the field leaders with my network marketing company. All of the big wigs were there, both from the field, and the top people from corporate too.

It was very cool.

The first night of the vent involved one or two Diamonds and Royal Diamonds sitting at tables and the rest of us moving from table to table, kind of like speed-dating, to ask them any questions that we have.

Why Choose Network Marketing Over Another Business?

I already wrote about why network marketing is better than a regular job here. Now I’m going to talk about why network marketing is better than a lot of other businesses you could get into.

What Are You Going to Sell?

A business exists to make money. Sure, you may have higher goals for your business, but if there isn’t any money flowing into the business, it will eventually fail. To make money, you have to have either a product, a service, or both.

Residual Income in Internet Network Marketing

I am at a network marketing event put on by the leaders in my network marketing company and I will share some of the stuff I am learning here and my business opportunity blog.

What I want to share today is actually something that some new friends and I were discussing last night in the hotel. We were talking about how to build our businesses and make money. I like building volume through retail sales while they are focused on recruiting people. We couldn’t come to an agreement.
