Being the mother of 5 children was challenging. I met this challenge with lots of love and tears. I was a young mother, so I grew up with my children. I loved and love being a mother though it was tuff at times. I am proud of who they are today.
I will go back to 1972 to begin my story of how I started in my Network marketing business. My fourth child was born in October 1972. When he was five weeks old, I had a gall bladder attack. Not being a person who ran to doctor for every little thing I did not go right away. I said this too shall pass. The attack started on a Friday, and the pain was intense. Still, I made it until Sunday, and my husband called my mother to come to look after the children, and he took me to the hospital. I had to have emergency surgery for a gangrenous gall bladder. My surgeon told his nurse the day I went to have my staples removed, that I was the one he thought he had lost before he started working on me.
After the delivery and the surgery, I started having some medical issues and was so fatigued. My fifth child was born in January of 1974; I had surgery the day after he was born and major surgery when he was a year old, after a year of constant pain. My health issues became worse as I looked for help, and I had no energy, thus began more doctor visits, but no one could determine what my issues were. In the summer of 1974, I woke as I did every day in great pain and fatigue. I leaned back on the bed and cried out to God. I said Lord if it’s my time I am ready to go if not I need you and I need what comes from you. The next day a friend from Florida came to see me. He knew about my issues and brought some products for me to try. Within a couple of days, I could see a difference in my body. Those products changed my life. They came from a network marketing company. There was such change in me that people were asking what I did and where to get the products. I looked so alive and walked with strength and stamina and no pain. I was also losing weight. I sold over a thousand dollars of product in a month. My friends encouraged me to sign up to be a distributor. I had so much fun doing that business. I felt good, made many friends that I am still friends with today, and I travelled in the USA and out. Such happy a time. As it happens with MLM and NWM companies, our company sold, and the marketing plan changed, and they started changing products, so they did not work the same. This, of course, was the beginning of the end for my group in 1997.
The concept of an MLM: multilevel marketing or NWM: network marketing is excellent. The reality is that these companies promoting products through this means, need to make a profit, so the mark-up of a product has to be higher than most brick and mortar stores. There are differences in an MLM or NWM company. A brick and mortar company sells direct to their customers. An MLM or NWM company markets through a network of people, and allows any person with a desire to make an income, have an opportunity to do so. For you to begin with an MLM or NWM company, you will find that a start-up fee or cost of launching your business is different. Some prices are higher than others. Other than the initial cost, the other things you will need to do is the same for all MLM and NWM make your business profitable are:
1. You must put money up-front to start.
a. Purchase your company’ product
b. Set up your online web site.
c. Setting up your home office space.
desk, telephone,computer, fax and copy machine
2. Determine how much time you will expend each day
to grow your business.
3. You must get customers to buy your product.
4. You get distributors who will duplicate what you do.
5. You must be consistent in what you do each day because your group grows and moves as fast as the leader.
Many distributors get discouraged for various reasons and will drop out of your organization. The bottom line is that you must retain customers, and you must maintain distributors since they are the stabilizing force of your business and income. You must continually be recruiting and getting new people all the time. Through the years, I have worked several of these types of companies. Only one company became a real money maker for me. I still purchase quality products from companies from time to time. Maybe I will write more on this later. From my experience, this is a simple break down of how the Multilevel and Network Marketing companies work.
The company I am now associated with is not an MLM nor an NWM style, nor is it a brick and mortar. It is a company that is bringing digital technology and cryptocurrencies to the world. I have full belief and trust; they will revolutionize the concept of doing business. Their motto is to Engage. Enrich. Enhance Life! Compumatrix International.
