Network Marketing – A Family Business

Working From Home

As I look around at the many things I want to do in my life, one of those is having my own business.

My dad had a business that allowed him to work from home and I thought it was great. I always had access to both of my parents growing up and I think it really made a difference in who I am now as an adult.

More often than not both parents have to work outside the home in today’s society. I know my wife and I are both at work everyday. We are both teachers, so we do have the same time off as our kids do, but I still feel as though all of us are missing out.

Network Marketing

Here is a business opportunity that allows anyone to work from home, set up a home office with all its tax benefits and do it for very little start up costs.

My Mom and partner in my HealthyLife-HealthyPlanet website, has been working in network marketing for almost 20 years and has experienced first hand how to work at home and be her own boss while doing something she loves. And hey, she makes money too.

I  just recently hit the point in my life where I saw this as a great opportunity.

Why Network Marketing?

On my journey of little steps towards positive change in my life I knew that I wanted to change what I was doing. I had worked my way up into the teaching position I wanted and I was seeing success for my efforts, but I was missing something.

I was spending more time with other peoples kids than I was my own.  I had already quit coaching but that wasn’t enough.

There had to be a way I could work at home and make a good income and be there for my children.  And to be honest and maybe even a little selfish, I wanted to find the job that made me happier and excited to get up and go to work.

As I surfed the net, I found many stories of people who were doing exactly what I wanted. They were working from home and taking the time to raise their children and making an income to support their family and in many cases making an amazing income.

I thought if they can do it, so can I. I decided to educate myself about what was available and what they were doing.

My wife and I have both made the commitment to select something that would work for us and our family and then dedicate ourselves to apply the time and perseverance to see it through to success.

In my reading I saw that many people failed and the common thread is that they gave up. They were never really ready for a home business and when it wasn’t instantly successful and they saw it was going to take time and effort they just quit.

I wasn’t going to do that.  When the dust settled, I decided I would still be standing.

Everything I read kept pointing me toward the Internet and network marketing. I had seen my Mom work at this business and even though I had seen her struggle at times I saw her ultimately succeed.

It took me awhile to join the ranks of network marketers. I was skeptical and unsure of the marketing plans of ‘those businesses’. But I just kept coming back. The good seemed to outweigh the things I saw as ‘bad’.

Now I have jumped into the arena of Network Marketing. I educated myself and now realize that this type of business is the answer for me!

I have done quite a bit of research and found my niche.

Now that I found MLM I can see its potential and that of the Internet working together in a perfect marriage.

The Family Business

As I move farther along and learn more I can see that Network Marketing can really be called a family business. I like to think of it as the ‘Mom and Pop’ store from yesteryear where everyone pitches in and helps.

Here are 5 great reasons I think this it true:

  1. It allows parents the chance to work from home and create a business schedule that fits their life and their lifestyle.
  2. Everyone in the family can get involved and help.
  3. The education and learning not only can bring the family closer together but give kids a good life lesson.
  4. You have a built in team of specialists.  Everyone is different – the artist, the techie, the socialite – everyone has their own talent that can make the business better.
  5. The entire community of network marketers, even those involved with different companies, comes together and helps each other.  It is a big extended family.

So if you are ready to be part of a change but weren’t quite sure where to turn, I urge you to take a look at Network Marketing.  It is not for everyone but it can work for anyone.  It is definitely worth a second look…
