In these times, many people wonder if they will be laid off, or how they will manage inflation or retirement. Some want a Plan B, and some have found one with network marketing. They may start a business as a backup while working, or upon retiring. Although there challenges to multi-level-marketing businesses, I’ve collected a list of advantages for those considering one.
Answer to recession:
Residual Income! Passive Income. Leverage a Team.
It can provide job security backup in these uncertain times.
You can grow this business while you keep your current one.
No pressure to succeed within a certain time. Work at your pace.
Replace your current career with one you love.
More job security working for yourself than working for someone else.
Can start a business for usually under $1,000 (vs. $65K to start the average U.S. business which takes 3-5 years to get that back).
Answer to inflation:
Extra income to fight the cost of living growing faster than people’s cost of living raises.
Low start-up cost, low risk and investment.
Greatest return on investment of ANY business!
Unlimited income and unlimited positions at the top.
Free on the job training while you earn. Almost anyone can do it.
Can work from home, saves the environment, cost of work clothes, driving time.

Grants you freedom of time. You set your hours.
Busts past the “work per hour or service” limited income model.
Eventually you can make more money in less time than a job, something EVERYBODY wants.
Income and fulfillment are virtually unlimited. There is no ceiling.
The longer you do it, the more you make per hour, unlimited.
Answer for retirement:
95% of retirees lack adequate funds due to inflation, bankrupt pensions, stock crashes
Seniors who need jobs are having a hard time finding them.
Answer for aging parents who need more money.
Keeps them healthfully active and engaged.
Provides a monthly income when you don’t have capital to invest:
How long will it take you to save $50K to get $200 interest a month income from it? vs.

Security for illness:
Keep getting paid by residual passive income.

Thrives on the new technology that connects the world now.

It’s built on support vs. competition, as in corporate.
Average, ordinary people change their lives!
You have support as you change from employee thinking to business-owner thinking.
You are not alone. You have a team to rely on.

Help people, leave a legacy, contribute to the world. Make lifelong friends.
