Why NOW Is the Best Time Ever to Build Your Network Marketing or Direct Sales Business

If you’re like many of the women I mentor in network marketing/direct sales, I bet you love your products and really believe in your business opportunity. I suspect you love the personal growth that comes with building your business, as well as the positive impact you can have on people’s lives every day. And I’m sure you’re inspired by the “success stories” of the top leaders in your own company, and would love to create a similar kind of income and lifestyle for your family too.

And, if you’re like many of the gals I work with, I bet there are also times you start to doubt yourself – or your business. Do you ever have those days when you wonder “Is all this hard work really worth it?” “When do things get easier?” “Can I really make the money I want to with this business (or am I just chasing a pipe dream?)

If you’ve ever questioned your own “sanity” or seriously thought about quitting your business altogether, the good news is – you’re perfectly normal. Growing your business and going after your dreams takes courage, dedication and lots of hard work. Most people have plenty of doubts along the way (no matter what kind of business you’re building). Ask any successful leader in your company, and I bet he/she will admit to thoughts of throwing in the towel on more than one occasion.

Even so, I want to assure you of something. No matter how tough things get, or how many doubts you might have, you must NOT give up. Why – because this is the BEST TIME EVER to be building a network marketing or direct sales business. There are 3 very important trends happening right now (both in the United States and several countries around the world) which are converging to make your business opportunity VERY attractive. The bottom line – you are sitting right in the middle of a “sweet spot,” that is positioning your business for some real growth in the next few years.

Here’s why:

1. Big challenges in our economy

Although the economy has improved since the crash of 2008, there are still plenty of people who are concerned about being laid off or their overall financial security. Many people are still wary of the stock market, and not expecting much growth in real estate any time soon. This is all good news for you.

Perhaps the greatest gift people have experienced through the challenges of the last few years is the realization that we can’t rely on “traditional methods” to make money, or trust in others to take care of our financial security. Having a “Plan B” isn’t just a nice idea, it’s a total necessity.

There’s a big wake-up call happening – which is inspiring many more corporate execs and working professionals to look to less traditional ways to generate capital, including network marketing. And this trend is going to continue, as the reputation and credibility of the network marketing/direct sales profession continues to elevate around the world.

2. Technology

The rapid growth of the internet, mobile phones, and social media tools like Facebook has literally blown the doors off the network marketing/direct sales profession – making it easier than ever for you to find leads, take care of customers and build a large team (virtually anywhere in the world).

Unlike the “old days” when the start-up costs for new distributors were much higher (and signing up with a company generally meant filling up your garage full of products – which you may or may not sell… ) technology has changed everything. Today, it’s easier than ever to service your existing customers (generally with just the push of a button) and even find new ones. Social media platforms like Facebook now boast over 900 MILLION users, and with a little strategy and know how, you can use these tools to find hundreds of super qualified leads for your business.

This new “streamlined, super leveraged” way of building a business is now attracting new people into the profession. From Gen Y college kids to baby boomers, health and wellness professionals to people with degrees up the yin yang… people who previously weren’t that interested in network marketing are now paying attention and getting involved. Experts now predict that this “technology revolution” will make network marketing/direct sales a “household word” – and TENS of MILLIONS of people will be getting involved in companies just like yours in the next decade. Obviously, this is fantastic news for you!

And the MOST important reason to be in network marketing/direct sales right now…

3. More women than ever are leaving the corporate world to start businesses from home

Fed up with the stress, long hours, low pay and corporate politics, women are leaving the traditional job market in droves, and starting businesses from home – at the rate of over 400 a day here in the US (and that’s a trend that’s being echoed around the world!)

And many of these women are seeing the potential in network marketing and direct sales, jumping in with both feet – and doing extremely well. Over the years, I’ve had the great opportunity to coach and mentor several ex-corporate gals like this – and I’m constantly amazed and inspired to see how well they do in this profession.

Many of them have quickly replaced their previous incomes, developed large teams (sometimes in many different countries) and now have the kind of lifestyle and free time that just isn’t possible when working in a traditional job.

And most inspiring of all, the women involved in network marketing / direct sales today are NOT just about making money, they’re equally invested in making a DIFFERENCE. I know so many women who are joining this profession, not just because of the money or lifestyle you can create, but because of the ways you can help people literally TRANSFORM THEIR lives through your products, your business opportunity, and even by channeling the money you make in your business towards causes that are dear to your heart.

The bottom line is, there are PLENTY of savvy, professional women out there who desperately need new options, and your business fits the bill in so many ways. Whether you are a man – or a woman, you’re smart to recruit these gals into your business; all you have to do is find these gals, and show them how YOUR opportunity is the ultimate solution they’re looking for.

And if you’d like some help with this, stay tuned! I’m about to release a 4 part video series, that will show you how to do just that. (And the best part, this is free!).

Stay tuned for more details, and in the meantime – keep dreaming big and believing in yourself, because what you do makes a difference!

Your Business Advisory Board

Every business owner benefits from the wise counsel of a select group of experts, who offer a differential diagnosis that brings fresh air and information into the room and drags us out of the echo chamber of our auto-pilot habits and ingrained perspectives.

Fortunately, life equips us with an advisory board, whether or not we recognize it as such. Unfortunately, most of the advice we receive is bad, starting with what know-it-all cousin Howie and meddlesome Aunt Sheila have to say (those two will have you broke in six months!).

No, our real advisory board must be carefully curated. One must know whose advice in general should be heeded and whose should be ignored. The advisory board that we create can be informal. It is not necessary to charter a formal board unless the business demands it. We should consult our advisory board regularly, to find out what is new on the horizon, figure out how to solve problems faster, brainstorm intriguing new ideas and overall learn how to work not just hard, but smart.

Clients

As numerous experts repeatedly recommend, listen to your clients and receive a wealth of information. Customers give the outside-in, other side of the desk view and what they value most is sometimes surprising. You cannot always fathom what customer priorities will be and you won’t know until you let them tell you.

Customers are vital members of our advisory board. They represent the marketplace and when the market speaks, business owners must listen. Ask for customer feedback in the form of evaluations, surveys, or plain old Q & A over coffee. Ask what they like about your products and services; ask what would enhance the experience of doing business with you; ask business clients about upcoming trends and challenges in their organizations and figure out what you can monetize.

Employees

If you have employees, seek out their insights and advice on how your business protocols might be improved. Employees are in the trenches and often know better than the owner about how the business is perceived by customers. Employees are uniquely positioned to give very valuable feedback. Owners and managers should be smart enough to listen.

Likewise our accountant, attorney and other professional service providers, through the unique prism of their specialty, may offer useful advice that can have a positive impact on the business. A wise business owner creates an environment where employees and customers know that their opinions and advice are welcomed, respected and at least occasionally implemented.

Competitors

Do speak with experienced people within your industry, including competitors. Many will be happy to share a few pearls of wisdom with you, especially if they operate in another geographic locale. Marketing tips and other promotional strategies can be good topics to discuss, as could the types of services that resonate most with clients these days.

Roundtables

Additionally, you may find it useful to have also a structured advisory board experience and for this I recommend membership in a peer group, also known as a CEO forum or roundtable. Groups consist of perhaps a dozen business owners in non-competing industries. They are often segmented by number of employees and annual revenues and usually meet monthly for about 2 hours. The idea is to assemble a group of business owners who share a similar profile and who therefore have the perspective to offer relevant advice and support to fellow members.

When properly facilitated, group members function as each other’s board of directors. There is guidance and support on decision-making. Members celebrate successes. New ways to view and resolve business challenges are put forth. Opportunities may be discovered, goal setting is encouraged and members hold one another accountable for progress and achievements. Peer roundtables can provide a welcome source of support and inspiration and do much to overcome the isolation that many business owners experience.
