    The Reason I Quit MLM

    MediaPress9 Adventurer
      In the past, I decided to join a MLM home-based business opportunity (cosmetics) because I believed that I could earn enough money to quit my day job. The MLM opportunity that I was involved in offered a great product and extensive training and support. I had custom designed business cards, brochures and even a website to promote my business.

       

      So, why did I quit?

       


      I quit because I wasn't earning any money. The market was over saturated with representatives selling the exact product. Every person that I tried to sell a product to already knew someone who was in the business. I had to work extra hard just to get a sale. I certainly didn't earn enough to quit my job.

       


      I had no other choice than to quit the MLM business opportunity and head back to working a regular job. I was miserable because I really wanted the business to work out ...I really wanted to be an entrepreneur.

       

      Family and friends assumed that I had no other choice than to go back to my dead-end job because I wasn't entrepreneurial material. That was beyond the truth. MLM may be an excellent opportunity for some people, but it didn't work out for me. So, what was I going to do with my life at that point?

       

      I basically had three options:

      1. To work at my dead-end job for the rest of my life.
      2. Find another MLM opportunity.
      3. Create my own opportunity.

      I tried #3 and it has worked out great for me.

       

      How I did it?

      I found my niche. The market that I'm in is not over saturated with the service that I offer my clients and it is recession-proof. I don't have to recruit people and bother family and friends about my business opportunity. Best of all, I don't have to wait for a commission check in the mail.

       


      A couple of months ago, I decided to write an e-book to help aspiring entrepreneurs to learn how to earn a good living working from home on their own terms. To find out more information about my new e-book, visit: http://www.e-junkie.com/76126/product/84026.php

              I recommend choosing an "ad-free website". It is possible to have a professional looking website for free. I recommend this option for those who are working with an extremely limited budget. If you are a high-profile company, and you want to develop a strong web presence, I recommend hiring a professional to create your website.

              No matter how good the business system is, the business must be one that "fits" you. It must be a business that builds on YOUR strengths and talents.

              Achieving your dream: It is good to understand your options and determine what is best for you.

              The three basic options are:
              1. Start a business from scratch
              2. Buy an existing business
              3. Purchase a franchise

              I have just joined a group of Franchise Consultants. The company specializes in helping people learn about many of the possible investment choices that exist in today's market.
