Get into MLM or stay in your job? For me, it’s an easy decision. I made the switch over 20 years ago and have never looked back. That doesn’t mean it was an easy decision. It doesn’t mean I haven’t considered getting a traditional job here and there. But, for me, the decision to get into MLM as my way of providing for my family was the best decision for me.
Maybe you are trying to make that decision for yourself. Maybe this article can help you get some information based on my experience.
Before we get started, I want to be clear. I don’t feel there is anything inherently. “wrong” with having a job. We all have bills to pay. We need to pay the rent or mortgage, utilities, food, and do things we enjoy. For some, the job is “the” way to do that. For other, like myself, it makes more sense to open a business or get into MLM.
I am the kind of person that loves autonomy. I don’t want to be micro-managed. I don’t want to be told how to do my job. I don’t want to be told how much money I am allowed to make. I don’t like having to ask someone else for vacation time, a day off, the option to spend the day with my family, etc… So I made the decision to start my own business in the world of MLM.
Now, I didn’t decide to do MLM instead of working. I work in my business. Some days, I think I work harder at MLM than I worked at my jobs. But I also know that there are days I can focus on what is important to me rather than what it is important to a boss.
For me, the bottom line is that if you are the kind of person who needs someone telling them what to do day after day and prefers to have someone else set your schedule and earning potential, then a job may be the ticket. ou can expect a certain degree of “security” in the form of a week or bi-weekly check. That is, until you get laid off or “down-sized”. Someone else will be deciding what your time is worth and you will have to accept the terms or seek a different job.
Now, this doesn’t mean MLM is all roses. you will have to put in the work required to succeed. you will have absolutely zero guarantee of an sort of success. IF you do the work and build a successful business, you can expect to begin living life on your terms in a way that most employees only dream about.
Each side of the equation has its own risks and rewards. For me, it made more sense to run on the MLM side of the equation were the rewards were available.
If you are thinking about getting into MLM but you just aren’t sure, remember … you can always start part-time. If it works out for you, it might make sense to transition to full-time.
