Why Network Marketing?
So as I am now taking a look back over my journey of where I’ve been and where I am at, and working towards I am reminding myself of why started on this journey, by sharing one of my first post from back in 2012.
I learned that at times you need to reconnect with where you’ve been and the reasons why to see if they still apply to today and what one is doing today towards reaching their dreams, or if one needs to make some changes and corrections. You see as you go along this journey you still have to navigate your way through the ocean of life and the circumstances of life to make sure that your are on your path to what your dreams are!
so here you go with my original post from back in 2012, my how time has flown by!!!
I first tried what’s called MLM or networking marketing back in the 90′s due to some friends being involved in that area of business and they were making really good money without have to do what I considered a lot of work, but after getting into it and trying to make a go of it I realized why was I trying to get potential customers to buy from me when they could go out and get a lot of what I had to sell right there at their fingertips from their local grocer, department store or a big box store. To me it eventually made realize that them buying from me and even though I was promoting great products it took to long to get them, they had to look at a catalogue make their decisions and then get the order to me and I had to send in the order even though the internet was around then it was like it is today to where you can have a customer or client go their computer go to your website or you business fanpage and get led to your site to where an order can be placed. Well I decided at that time it wasn’t for me as I had changed my mindset to see the true potential of what was happening here.
Well my next foray into this arena was a couple of years ago when I jumped into ACN another multi-level marketing opportunity and I tried to get that to work but I couldn’t get others to understand or see the picture that I got with this opportunity. I truly believed that I had something valuable but to attract others due still to inexperience of how this concept works.
I’m now trying this from another angle I’m have now learned from two experience mentors on how to become a social media manager, and have found another friend in that area that is wanting to get out of it and move into developing his illustrated book and then e-book. By him doing this it allows him to move into an area where he can really let his creativity flow and it give me that chance to develope my new skills that I have learned.
Now for a backdrop and why I feel I have been frustrated within this area of how to make a very good living but with how the “game is played” so to speak as I know am understanding the thought process about this even more.
While growing up I was abused and learned to not truly trust people by just what they told me, I look to how people act and treat me and whether or not I am willing to trust what they are telling, from the age of 12 when I went to live with family memebers I have had a good and blessed life didn’t really do without and then ultimatley went to college on my dime no one else’s except with help a couple of times from family memebers. I got my degree after almost 20yrs while all the time working. I a very determined person and hard and honest worker. So When I got let go in 2010 it was very hard on me and I’ve struggled the last couple of years, but God had truly blessed me and allowed me to continue to pay my bills and go on living.
So now I’m where I’m at today wanting to take more control of my life but have very limited resources and I keep having people tell me trust me and my program and it will pay off I promise you, but because I don’t have unlimited funds and have plenty of examples of others who have gambled that their last penny and turned it into what they were told, I’m still struggling with that I worked hard for what God has given me and he can take it all away and I’m being honest I feel that I would lose all of myself because this is who I am. I do want to excel and achieve what I see other doing, but who truly sees the value of investing in me when I do jump just because they have jumped. I want to but I have obligations that I’m need to honor as this is who I am.
I do believe this model of doing business works, I know people who have done it. I believe that I have found a couple of great mentors for the Social Media Manager training. I have also found a great friend from my church who introduced me to the Empower Network where I can build it up. But I need to learn more and want to learn more of how to change my approach to others about this industry and to help them. I see that I can do a lot of things GOD willing to help my church, I have a heart to want to help others who are going down so of the same roads I’ve been get the help they need to move forward with their lives. I am going on a mission later this summer. I want to go on more and to help other be able to go on a mission if they so want to.
Today’s blog was more of a personal thing to me to say what I don’t feel others who are wanting to help me truly understand about me. I don’t just jump when told. I look, research and then jump and if I can and have the availablity will jump full force but I need to have someone help see me all the way through not just say if you do this then I will do that. I know that this is how a lot of people weed those out that they feel aren’t worth their time, but they may also be missing that real diamond in the rough. I am not a diamond in the rough but over time I know I can be, as it takes a long time to for a coal to become a diamond, remember that. This being said, I’m just frustrated and not placing blame anywhere, not discouraged as I will do this and I think I have found a couple of good mentors to help me with this.
Thanks and make it a Simply Simple Day!!!
