Are you like a lot of people who spend their whole week just waiting for the weekend? Do you hate your job and suffer through the week for those precious two days of freedom when you can do anything you want?
Except that you can’t just do anything you want, can you? The weekend is filled with mowing the lawn, doing laundry, running some errands and all of the other things you can’t do during the week because you are at work. Then you get back to Monday and wonder what happened to the weekend.
That’s a lousy way to live. Life is happening right now, and only right now. If you are always looking forward to just getting past this moment, you end up missing your whole life. Monday through Friday count for just over seventy percent of your life. Books like The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle remind us that we can only act in the present moment. We cannot do anything about the past and anything that we can do about the future can only be done right now. When our thoughts are on the past or the future, we’re thinking those thoughts right now.
All you have is right now, and right now is all you can ever have. You will be much happier and have a more fulfilling life if you are doing something you enjoy or that at least doing something that allows you to mix your life into it more often than just two days out of every week.
I Make Every Day Like a Weekend
That’s why I chose network marketing instead of working for someone else at a job. It allows me to schedule my work around my life instead of scheduling my life around my work. To be able to do that is a very big deal. Network marketing has given me the freedom to be with my kids as they grow up instead of missing it like most dads do.
My working title for this post was “Living”, and that is what we are here to do. We are not here to toil and suffer. We are here to live, thrive, succeed and have a great time. Network marketing has given me more of an opportunity to do just that, live my life the way I want.
Today is a great example. I was able to spend the day today with my family and celebrate my nephew’s seventh birthday. We live several hours away so my kids don’t get to see their cousins very often. It was great to be able to spend the day with my brother and his family and let the kids play together. While traveling I was able to write this on a tablet then upload it to my blog once I got home. I wouldn’t be able to do something like this if I had someone else controlling my time at a job.
You Do Have to Work to Make Money
As a little bit of a disclaimer, you aren’t guaranteed to make any money when self-employed in network marketing. Unlike what some marketers might tell you (the ones who say “Just sign up. We do all the work for you!”) you really do have to work if you want to make money, just like in a regular job. Unlike what some other people say, network marketing really can work, if you do. The difference with network marketing compared to a “real” job is that you decide when and where you work so that you can schedule it around living your life, there are no raise reviews and you can’t be fired. The way I run my business, as long as I have an internet connection I can be working. If I want a raise, I build a bigger team and move more of my network marketing company’s product. It’s that simple and I am in control.
Are you done wasting your life working for the weekend? Give network marketing an honest look and I think you will like what you see.

As I said above, there is no income guarantee with network marketing. I am a network marketer and that is where I generate my income.
