Network Marketing Can Be A Solution

I’m very grateful for my life today. That was not always the case. I was a stay at home mom We were happy but lived from paycheck to paycheck and there was never enough money to go on vacations or do anything extra.

Once my children entered school, we found the school system in our state not the best, so I went to work part time to pay for a private school for them. Once they got older, I decided to find a great full time job with benefits. I found a wonderful company within a mile of my house and took a traditional JOB.

Things were looking up and we had a little more income so we could do a little more. After about 8 or 9 years, things started to change. They layoffs started. WHile I didn’t get laid off, each week they would walk out 40 or 50 people. Because it was in the defense contracting industry, they would pay them 2 weeks severance pay, but they had to leave the day they came to tell them. Over the next couple of years, the company went from 2700 down to about 800 people, and everyone was doing the work of 2 or 3 people. I went from a fun 8-5 job to one that was more like 7 or 7 or even later, sometimes 6 or 7 days a week.

I began to search for a way out, and got introduced to Network Marketing. At the time, I had No experience or no clue if this was good or bad. I only knew that the job world was not working and I didn’t want to end up dead or dead broke.

Do you believe Network Marketing can be a solution for you as well? I never dreamed it could but found out i was wrong.

So I went to work, studied and taught myself to become independent. I made mistakes along the way but learned from them and moved to the next step and the next.

Today, my children are grown, and I have 5 grandchildren (3 in college). Because of the NWM industry, I have true freedom. I am able to vacation, and come and go as I please.

I always wanted to travel and see the world. I’ve been all over the USA, seeing many places. I’ve been to Alaska (my favorite) 3 times, on Alaskan Cruises. I’ve been to many other countries and seen some very amazing sites. As I’m sharing this, I’m getting ready to take a Rhine River Cruise thru Amsterdam and Germany.

My life is much different. I can come and go and still have an income that is much greater than back when I was working 60-70 hours a week. I have no debts. I drive the car I choose and I’m able to help others reach their dreams.

You may have heard NWM doesn’t work, but I can tell you different. It works IF you work. It does take work and effort. It does not make you rich just joining company after company. It does not work if you are not willing to work it. However If you are willing to work, it can work for you as it has for me.

There is life and hope outside the traditional JOB world. It worked for me and it can work for you if you start to dream again.

Have You Given Any Thought To Your Future?

Many people invest hundreds of thousands of dollars and 5-10 years to go to college. They graduated with a degree, and then return to get a masters degree. They work hard and come out of school with large debt, a piece of paper and get to now interview for a job and hope they will start out at a decent salary to start repaying their loans.

Have you giving any thought to your future? What does it hold for you?

What if you decided to put in the same time, invest a few hundred dollars into your business, and grow it over that time period? Did you ever think about that? Where would you be in 5-10 years?

Sure you may have a family. You may have a 40 hour job, if you’re on of the lucky ones these days. Do you truly want to live paycheck to paycheck forever? Do you have enough money to save for your retirement?

Unfortunately times have changed. Years ago people worked 40 years or so and retired with a gold watch and a great pension. Not so today. Today if you have a job, you are told be thankful and work harder for less money. Many are reaching retirement age and finding the pension they thought they had no longer exists. Many find they are laid off before they can collect anything.

What about you? What are YOUR plans for the future?

The only one that can do anything about your future is YOU. What are you willing to do to secure it? Only you have the answer.

24 Hours

We all have the exact same 24 hours in a day. It’s how we choose to spend our time that will make a difference in our future. If you plan to build a business to secure your future, that means you must find time to work and build that business in your spare time.

Most people go to a job of some sorts, either full or part time. Most have families. Many belong to clubs and other activities that keep them busy. Life is usually busy for everyone.

I’ve found you can make extra money or excuses, but never both. If you truly want to secure your future, then you have to find time to work your business in your 24 hours. If you don’t work your business daily, you can’t expect to succeed. It takes consistent work and action over time to be successful.

If you want true freedom, you have to create a plan and work that plan, and stick with it over the next months and years. Find the time now so you can celebrate later. You’ll be glad you did down the road.

Fast Money

I’ve learned on my 15 or so years in network marketing is almost everyone that looks for and joins a network marketing company is looking for fast money. Many join thinking they will be soon making 5-6 figures a month and they want to do that in 3-6 months. I’m here to tell you that just won’t happen.

The one thing I have learned by experience, is there is no way to make money super fast that will build security long term. Sometimes you see a lot of hype and things that promise instant riches, but those type things are more smoke and mirrors than anything.

The only way to build long term security that will make you rich, is thru the slow lane. In the beginning or early years, take time to grow and lean and work on yourself first. Personal development is key to your future success. Get started and work hard and stay focused.

Celebrate those small successes and the small checks. Stay with it long enough to where those small checks get a little bigger over time. Don’t get drawn into anything where they make it sound like you will get rich overnight just by joining them. It just does not happen that way.

I’ve watched many people over the years jump from deal to deal. When the new thing came along they were so excited, and they talked to everyone they knew and some joined them. When they weren’t rich 6 months down the road, they found another thing, and another. They never stuck with anything long enough to see the work pan our or have success.

There is no such thing as fast money. There is a lot of money to be made in the industry, however, it’s made thru hard work over time. If you tell the truth and teach people with way to success is thru building steadily, over time and sticking with something, then the good money will come in as you build solid. Teach people the truth. If they want to get rich, slow and steady wins every time. Never chase the instant riches. There is no security or stability in that.

Hope to see you at the top one day! Keep on plugging slowly along and you’ll find the success you always dreamed of.

Which Life Would You Choose?

I’ve lived thru practically every kind of thing in my lifetime. I’ve been poor, with no job. I’ve also worked for minimum wage. I’ve also had times where we lived from pay check to pay check waiting for the next check to pay out bills. It was not fun.

Sometimes though when you’re in that situation, you just can’t see the forrest for the trees. I was taught you had to have a “JOB” and work for a living as there was no other way. I found out later in life that the best way to succeed and the best way to help the poor, was not to be one of them.

Later on, I became an entrepreneur. At the time, I had no clue what that was but I started into the field of network marketing, hoping go have a little extra income, so I could not have to live from paycheck to paycheck anymore.

Little did I know at the time that it would become my future. Today, I’m very comfortable. I come and go as I please. I travel and enjoy the nicer things. I always buy brand new cars and I have no bills. I don’t have to worry about living from paycheck to paycheck.

Having been in both places I have to say it’s much nicer to not have to worry about money. It’s fun to travel. I have learned it’s nice to be able to come and go as I please.

Today I enjoy teaching others and helping them into the world of freedom. I know if I can do it anyone can do it. Which life would you choose?

Get started building your future. Just make a point to NEVER quit and one cay I will meet on the beaches of the world or at sea on a cruise.

Basel, Switzerland

We docked our river boat at Basel, Switzerland. They docked only about 10 minutes from the airport so we didn’t see much of Switzerland.

We were taken to the airport at 9 AM the next day for a noon flight (which in our home time zone was 6 AM). On our ride to the airport, I noticed the buildings and streets looked quite similar to other towns, in Europe. Basel airport was a little airport but there were quite lengthy walks to the gates.

That’s about all we saw of Basel, although it did look like a little town or country we’d like to return to one day to explore.

Strasbourg, France

On our next stop we docked in Germany just across the river from Strasbourg, France. This is where the Ill river meets the Rhine and France Borders Germany. Strasbourg lies at the crosswords of major waterways and land routes. It was founded in 12 B.C. for it’s strategic location and quickly became a center for trade.

Strasbourg was originally German, and changed from German to French many times. It was really cool seeing the city has live Storks and stork trees. The stork is said to be good luck.

France as a country is smaller than the state of Texas, yet it’s the 3rd largest European nation with a population of approximately 65 million. The terrain varies from mountains to forests and to farmland.

The government is run by a president who serves as both head of state and executive head for a 7 year term. The president appoints a prime minister from the majority party in the National Assembly a group of 577 members elected for 5 year terms. The Senates 321 members serve 9 year terms and are elected every 3 years.

France has one of the worlds most highly developed economies. Their major industry includes agriculture, steel, motor vehicles, aircraft, textiles, chemicals and food processing. More than half of France’s power is generated by nuclear power plants.

The religion is about 80% Roman Catholic, 2% Protestant and 5% Muslim.

Education is free and mandatory for ages 6-16. Secondary education, lasting 7 years (11-18) gives students the equivalent of a USA junior college education. Then students take an exam to determine if they may go on to higher education, which is practically free at France’s 60 universities.

Strasbourg had one of the larger Cathedrals and also one of the biggest Christmas Markets. In both Germany and France they serve a hot wine called Gluewine. My husband fell in love with this Gluewine and wished it would migrate to the states. He did bring home several bottles. France also had a lot of chocolates which we brought back as well.

The interesting thing is you can travel from country to country in Europe without showing your passport. You only need a passport to leave the country but not to go between European countries.

Unnecessary Tools

One thing we all need to teach people is they have EVERYTHING they need to build a business. They do not need to buy into FANCY sounding tools, or systems. There is NO System out there that will make anyone rich overnight as they sleep. In fact, a lot of the things being pitched are scams.

There are a lot of gurus out there, pitching tools. They have good sales pitches but bottom line, if you want to succeed, don’t buy a bunch of unneeded tools. Work on yourself first. There are lots of free personal development books that can help you, and they are FREE to read from any library. If you’re not rich use the resources you have available to you and don’t be convinced you need to buy into all these unnecessary tools they are trying to sell you.

Building a business takes time and work. There are no shortcuts to success. If you see powerful ads, and videos telling you differently you’ll be wasting time and money, buying things like that. Those type things make a TON OF MONEY for those that invent them, but for you, you’ll be sold something, buy in and then pitched for tool # 2, and 3 and 4 and it will never end. You’ll be so distracted by all the stuff, your business will fall apart.

FREE can also be quite expensive, as they lead you in by giving you something FREE, and then sell you on the back end. I am sharing all this from vast experience, because I don’t want to see people out there thinking they can be rich over night, as they sleep. If you believe, that I’ll find some swamp land to sell you.

Just use common sense. Don’t be mislead. You can succeed without all those things. I did and if I did, so can you.
