Why would you want to start a direct selling business now ? In this economy? People are being laid off right and left which means that competition for jobs is huge – the numbers of people looking for work are huge – just a sad economic picture…according to CNN.Money.com employers cut 240,000 jobs just in October…manufacturing is at a 26-year low, consumer confidence is at an all time low…what can you do?
You could tighten your belt, spend less, conserve, do without. Probably some form of that is going to be necessary anyway. But there are alternatives to consider.
You could do something right now that will bring in extra income.
A direct selling business [also known as network marketing business] can provide an income opportunity with little financial risk in starting and can be worked parttime, around what you are currently doing.
In their book, “Why We Want You to Be Rich,” both Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki had positive things to say about a network marketing business:
*”…A network marketing business is designed to bring you up to the top, not keep you down at the bottom. A true network marketing busienss does not succeed unless it brings people up to the top….” – Robert Kiyosaki
*”…Network marketing has proven itself to be a viable and rewarding souce of income, and the challenges could be just right for you. There have been some remarkable examples of success, and those successes have been earned through diligence, enthusiasm and the right product combined with timing….My nutshell advice about network marketing is to do your research and then put everything you’ve got into your product. Genuine enthusiasm is hard to beat, and the odds will be with you….” – Donald Trump
Writers Erin Casey and John David Mann in an article titled, “Why You Should Start Your Own Business Today,” in Success Magazine , stated, “…Some self-owned business opportunities require expertise…or can take significant capital investment…such as real estate investing and franchises; some can be started on a shoestring and prove quite lucrative, including direct selling and online opportunities….” [emphasis by me]
You don’t have to take a negative economic downturn laying down. You can “fight back” by starting your own direct selling business and bringing income in, rather than watching it go out. There are many good direct selling companies. And many that are not experiencing a negative downturn in this economic climate. Do some research and find one that has a product(s) or service that is a fit with you and your life…that you can become passionate about. Find a company whose corporate culture is a fit with your core values. Find a company whose income opportunity has the potential to give you what you are looking for – whether that is supplementary income or fulltime residual income. Now is the time to start. 2009 does not have to be economically bleak.
