Why Network Marketing-Troubling Statistics

Many individuals are going backwards financially.  Their lifestyles are getting worse as the price of everything(gas, grocieries, taxes, etc.) goes up faster than their income.    

The individual that realizes that they are the only one that can do anything about it, can change their situation for the better, forever.  The 401K’s tanking and social security disappearing has their attention also.  Not just people that are nearing retirement but individuals that understand that it’s never too early to plan unless their okay with eating Top Ramen in their golden years.

While some will sit back and watch it all happen and complain just like they have for the last five years, others have taken action.  They have taken the first step by exploring options that will propel them forward while others go backwards. 

Their first observation is that the old model does not work today. 

“Get an education.  Get a good job.  Stay there until you retire and live happily ever after.”


“Get a job with good retirement benefits so you are taken care of when you are unable to take care of yourself.”

Millions of employees have decided to run their own show.  Make their own decisions and take care of the present and the future.  Many of them will achieve the ultimate financial goal…financial freedom.  This is the kind of freedom that allows you to:

  • Take Sundays off…if you want to.  After all, you are the boss.
  • Travel the world.
  • Go to all your kid’s ball games, dance recitals, and school plays.
  • Take your spouse out to dinner without having to look at the prices on the menu.
  • The list goes on……

The goal of financial independence can be earned in more ways now than probably ever before.  The simplicity of working for yourself has been made easier with new laws, technology, the internet, and systems like Network Marketing. 

This article is not to cover the details of the the industry also known as Relationship Marketing and Word Of Mouth Marketing.  This post is about the reasoning for considering the industry starting right now.

Why consider starting a home business:

  • Research has shown that an additional $300 in income per month would have saved 50% of the foreclosures. 
  • From 2005-2009 inflation was approximately 13.2%.  How many people do you know that did not increase their income by that same rate or higher?
  • In a down economy with unempoyment high, employers tend to treat their employees worse.  Simple supply and demand says the employer has plenty of people waiting in line to accept your job. 
  • The average American household has about $8,000 in credit card debt.
  • 78 million baby boomers have begun to retire and Social Security will not be available for everyone.   40% of these baby boomers have less than $1,000 in savings.
  • Assisted living costs over $33,000 a year on average.
  • The average 4 year public college-$18,000
  • $170,460 equals the amount of money the average American family will spend on one child from the time of birth until age 17.  From birth to age two that number is $9,030.
  • Unexpected expenses- transmission, new brakes, medical or dental expense…and the list goes on.

Running your own home business can help you overcome all of these potential challenges and live a rewarding, fun, independent life of your choosing.  One last statement.

When the ecomomy is down the home business and Network Marketing industry explodes.  This has been the case for the last fifty years.  The timing is perfect for the industry.
