What I really Want you to Know about my Network Marketing Business

Featured on The Essential Life

There are a lot of misconceptions about Multi-Level Marketing schemes (MLMs).  Some of them might be true but I’d like to clear up a few of the common misconceptions.

"It’s a pyramid scheme" 

A pyramid scheme by definition is “a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services. As recruiting multiplies, recruiting becomes quickly impossible, & most members are unable to profit; as such, pyramid schemes are unsustainable & often illegal.”  If you are receiving goods & services then the MLM is not a pyramid scheme.

"You only want to recruit me"

I am not trying to recruit you. Yes the opportunity for you to join this business exists but my first priority is showing you this amazing product that I believe will benefit you & your life.  This is a business that I am passionate about & believe in.  I want to show you the benefits of the products first & foremost. 

"All MLMs are a scam"

You go to the grocery store.  The grocery has bought their products from a supplier.  You buy from the grocery store.  Let’s think about this a few minutes….  Sound familiar yet?  Remember a scam means you get nothing or an inferior product at best.  My products are top of the line.  I use them & believe in them.

"You always have something you are trying to sell"

Actually no, I’ve never done a MLM product before in my life & I’m a little lost.  Sure I was asked to because of my personality, etc.  I have been recruited to Plexus, ItWorks Wraps, & a few others.  But I never fell in love with the product to the point I felt I needed to show it to the world.    The company I choose to put my heart & soul into has been around for over 20 years.  It’s not a fad that is here today & gone tomorrow.  I will be using these products for the rest of my life.

You only want me as a customer so you can get money

Yes, it’s a business. Yes I want customers. But I might also want you to discover this business & be a part of my team so you can have a few extra dollars that I know you need.  There is no doubt in my mind that everyone needs Essential Oils in their life.  You just haven’t discovered why yet. 

In conclusion, if I was opening a bakery or a store, you would probably give it a try wouldn’t you?  My MLM business isn’t any different from any other business venture.  So support your friends when they are trying to build a small business even if it is an MLM– you might fall in love just like I did.
