Unfortunately, most of us don't have a few hundred thousand laying around.
For those of us that are not wealthy, there are other alternatives.
The best one that I have been able to find is network marketing.
Network marketing is the act of marketing your products and/or services through word of mouth.
Most companies that do this business have been around for awhile.
The most famous of them all is Amway.
It's been said that Amway has created more millionaires than any other American Company?Why all of the fascination with Network Marketing?It's not exactly easy, however if you ever listen to Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, or Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad) - it is one way to get wealthy - quickly.
The reason that an Average Joe can become successful in Network Marketing/MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) is simple - you get paid on your entire groups efforts.
So in other words - like the famous J.
Paul Getty quote, "I would rather make a dollar off the efforts of a hundred people, than a dollar off of 100% of my own".
It allows you to leverage your time, which is the one thing you either have on your side or don't.
If you want to build a network it will take time.
To see the power of building an organization just sit down and double a penny for 30 days and see what happens.
This might explain why successful networkers can obtain the same wealth in 5 years that it takes most people 40 years.
I remember a few years ago when I was looking for a new job and I came across an advertisement for Herbal Life.
I told the recruiter that I was looking for a job that paid a salary of $50K plus commission, and his exact words to me were, "I feel sorry for you".
I had no idea what he meant by that statement, but I later found out that this man was earning well over $50,000 per month.
This type of business is becoming so popular that colleges/universities are even offering classes as part of their curriculum.
We live in a society today that has taught us to get educated, get a good secure job, to create a secure retirement.
If this plan works so well, why are most people dead, or dead broke by age 65?Why do we continue long commuting, long hours, and low pay.
For what?There must be a better way?There is, and it's called network marketing.
Unfortunately, most of us will never try it, who wants to sell soap or Juice? but for the few that dare to make their dreams a reality, this could be one vehicle to get you there.
