You only have so many ways to make money:

1. Job – you will get paid about 25% of what you are worth, because that’s all the company can afford to pay you. Plus, no matter how valuable you think you are, they will downsize you or replace you with technology at the first available opportunity. When you get too old to be productive they will figure out a way to discard you with very little in retirement benefits. They are using you! Studies have shown that between 70% and 90% of Americans hate their job. Pre-work week stress causes more people to die of heart attacks on Monday morning that any other day of the week (guess people would rather die than go to work).

2. Traditional business – you can start or buy your own business. This requires a great deal of up-front and on-going capital. You will have to work the business full-time, which usually means taking a huge financial risk. Most traditional business owners do not make much money during the first couple of years in business. As the business grows it will require hiring and managing employees, which results in the headaches of payroll, benefits, and taxes. More employees means more office space, furniture, equipment, and operational costs. Basically the headaches just get bigger as the business gets bigger. Statistially 65% of new traditional businesses will fail with the first 2 years and 85% within 5 years.

3. Franchise – if you have big bucks (average £45,000 franchise fees, plus capitalization) you could start a franchise. McDonald’s, the most successful franchise, will run you £250,000 to £500,000 for the franchise fees and around £2 million for capitalization. The worst part is that the average single franchise owner, after 2 years in business earns £100,000 to £200,000 a year. That’s not much money to work 18 hour days managing teenagers. Successful network marketers can earn that within 2 years and they don’t have to work 18 hour days or take the huge financial risk.

4. Investments – many people have made fortunes in the stock market, but of course you have to have money and be in a position to risk it. It’s less risky than gambling, but not much. Plus, in order to do it right, you either have to entrust your money to a so called “financial expert” (most of whom are living month to month with high credit care debt just like you and me) or you have to spend hours each day studying the market in order to make good decisions.

5. Rob a bank – big money can be made with careful planning and the right team of people. However the risk is high and the downside is ugly – sharing a dark cell with Big Buck or Bad Bertha!

6. Network Marketing – low start-up costs, low risk, no experience necessary, great training and support, proven business and marketing systems, can work part-time in the beginning, no overhead, no employees, low stress, great tax advantages, unlimited residual income potential, time freedom, personal growth, travel, and fun.

Now, given those choices, which one would you choose? Which one do you think your friends and family members would choose? Network marketing is easily the best choice.

According to CNN, a new home-based business is started every 11 seconds. Since, network marketing is unquestionably the best home-based business, there are literally millions of people out looking for what you have to offer. Your job is to sift through those who aren’t looking and find those who are. Then do the best job you can of presenting your business, so that they can make an educated decision.

Franchising was the last evolution of business. Network marketing is the next. In the future there will be two classes of people, those who have networks and those who don’t! In which class do you want to be?
