Network Marketing Pitfalls
It is NOT an INVESTMENT PROGRAM! Just because you bought a business opportunity, it will forever be a business opportunity and not a business if you sit and do nothing. This is not Unit Trust or Mutual funds or a Fixed Deposit Savings Account. The money doesnt grow by you becoming a distributor. The more you invest doesnt mean you will necessarily earn more.
It is NOT a GET RICH QUICK SCHEME! Those who make it big in MLM within a short time are the EXCEPTION to the NORM. Do you have what they have? (The experience, built trusts, contacts, paid the price) Everyone who has made it had all paid the price.
It is NOT totally a SALES RECRUITMENT PROGRAM. Some like to sell. Some are salespersons, being good in sales will not make you succeed in MLM.
It is not MUSICAL CHAIRS. It is never about whom gets there first, sponsor a few people then sit down and watch the group build itself while the latecomers miss out on the opportunity forever. Remember that if the downline works harder, they will eventually earn more than their uplines.
It is not a 9-5 JOB. In a 9-5 job, some people get away without doing any work sometimes (they still get their salary).
