Unless you were born into a wealthy family with a “silver spoon,” then chances are you have to work to earn money for your family’s needs and wants. I know this is certainly the case for most people. So here is the question, if you have to work, why would you ever work for someone else, building their dream, rather than for yourself, building YOUR dream?
Time for Money
When you are employed you are trading your time for someone else’s money. It may be a great paying job, but you are still, in a sense, selling your time at wholesale and buying your time back at retail. However, without leverage wealth is hard to create. It is extremely hard to truly generate financial independence unless you are willing to diligently commit to saving a large percentage of your income over many years. Even if you have a high paying job you are still building an asset for someone else, not for yourself. There are only 24 hours in a day, and a job only pays what a job is worth, not what YOU are worth.
Network Marketing Can Help
With network marketing you are not only building residual income and breaking that time for money trap, but you are also building an asset (a business) that you can one day sell. Think about it. Let’s say you spend 20 or 30 years working for someone else, and you decide to retire. What do you have? In some cases, a gold watch and a nice retirement party (if you are lucky). Now, let’s say you spent those 20 or 30 years of your life building a business, and you decide to retire. What do you have? A business that you can sell!
I will never forget the day Nancy and I cashed out and sold our business after 10 years. It one of the most gratifying days of my life, not only had we earned a great living all those years (just like we could have at a job), but we were also able to walk away with a windfall of cash on our way out the door!
When you are building a network marketing business, you are building an asset that can be sold. So let me encourage you to get serious about building YOUR dream, even if it has to be done on a part time basis in the beginning. In the end, you will be glad you did!
Wishing you all the success you will allow yourself to have!
