Many people as they get older realize that they aren’t going to have enough money to retire. After working for 40 years or more, looking forward to the day when they won’t have to anymore, they will have to keep some form of job or live a severely restricted lifestyle. They will have to put all of their plans for traveling and enjoying their golden years on the shelf, maybe permanently.
It doesn’t have to be that way. I know many people who are making more than enough money to put some away toward their retirement. Further, they have no intention of retiring because they thoroughly enjoy what they do. What they have done is build a successful network marketing business, or you could call it a retirement business.
Network Marketing – A Place to Belong
My parents are retired and one thing I have noticed is that retired people need something to belong to. There are a lot of people who dread retirement because they don’t know what they are going to do with themselves. They need a reason to get up in the morning, maybe even more than they need the money. Network marketing can fulfill both of those needs equally well. You can attend events for distributors in your area, or put them on yourself. You can have meetings with your teammates and customers. And all of these can contribute directly or indirectly to generating additional income.
The thing to remember about network marketing is that it is a business, and businesses take time to get going. While overnight successes can and do happen, most people take at least a few years to get their business (network marketing or otherwise) to a point where it generates a significant income. With that in mind, it is better to get started sooner rather than later. It is probably not in your best interest to wait until the day you retire to start your business if you expect it to support you right away.
One of the nice things about network marketing is that you can start very part time while you are still working your regular job. It is easy to recommend one of your network marketing company’s products during a conversation if it meets a need. Strike up a conversation about retirement and what you are doing to prepare for yours. Maybe they will be interested in joining you. These are probably things that you already do anyway, so now you can build your own part-time business instead of a faceless company’s business. The point is that you can start now without it taking up very much of the time that you have available.
Network Marketing Is A Business
Here is my disclaimer. A network marketing business is a business. As with any business, there is no guarantee of success. There is no guarantee that you will make any money. Nothing that matters comes with a guarantee. Any business that you might start comes with risks and takes work to get it going. Fortunately, network marketing doesn’t have to require a large investment and the risks are similarly small.
Your network marketing business does take work. You have to put in the time and energy to get the money out of it. Keep your job while you get started learning how to do your network marketing business. Once it is established you can decide how big you are going to make it. How much money do you need from you business? You can then create that.
