Just like millions of other good little slaves, I report to my 9-5 job day in & day out. 5 days a week, 4 weeks a month, fifty-two weeks a year. I’m just doing what I was trained. Go to school, get a good job, work at that job for the next fifty years and retire with a nice full 401! Never mind the fact that I commute 45 minutes to an hour each way to get to that job. And I am not alone. Hundreds of thousands of Americans work their tails off, sacrificing their priceless time that could be better spent with their families in order to make money for someone else. After the government takes their portion of our paychecks first, we’re left with little to show for our work.
I have been following financial expert and best selling author, Robert Kiyosaki for several years now. He says that you could keep working, cut up your credit cards, pay down your debt and live beneath your means, but he WOULDN’T recommend it. Doing this will get us nowhere fast! I should know….I tried it. I could no longer let life pass me by, unable to do anything or go anywhere because I had no money. I have a pretty good job; it just barely pays the bills and nothing more.
So, I have been looking for other ways to earn additional income, but with commuting and working full time, I have a hard time being able to add anything else to my busy life. I can barely tell which way is up anymore! I have recently ventured into the arena of network marketing, as it has been described as the “business of the future” by Mr. Kiyosaki himself.
Network marketing has been around for decades, and there are 100’s of them! In researching, I’ve found that there are many great things about network marketing. First, the starting costs are low compared to building a business from the ground up, or purchasing an already existing company. This is great for those of us who are struggling, living paycheck to paycheck, or who find ourselves unemployed all together. So, having your own business in network marketing would cost hundreds, not thousands of dollars to start.
When you join a network marketing company, the systems and training are already in place. They provide you with the right tools to get your business started. You don’t need to have a business degree or any other kind of schooling beforehand. It‘s great because just about anyone can start their own business with network marketing. You won’t be turned down because you don’t have the proper education or experience.
One of the things that I like best about network marketing is the control it allows you over your own life. No clocking in and out every day, no being told what to do, and no asking permission to take a day off or schedule a dr.’s appointment. Network marketing is something that can be done full time or part time, on your own schedule. You can work network marketing while having a full time, so there’s no need to quit your job while you build your business. You can control how much you work and how much you make.
And you know, we can blame other people, any corporation, the economy or even the government for our current situations, but the reality is, only We are responsible for our own lives. We can’t sit around and wait for someone, or the government to take care of us. We have seen what has happened to everyone’s 401’s and what they’ve done to the Social Security system. We are in charge of our own destiny. Wait no longer. The old system of working until retirement and rake in your savings doesn’t work in this day age. That was the American dream of the past. We need to take care of our futures now!
