What are on networkers mind when they join an MLM business?
Of course making money is the main objective but why MLM?
Is MLM the only thing which comes to mind when one is desperately looking for a source of income?
Is there any guarantee that this business will work for you?
Why a particular company? What makes you think this company will take you where you want?
While others have tried and failed, what makes you think you are different?

What are on networkers mind when they join an MLM business?
     -if your asking for their reason why they join an MLM business, there are a lot but I think the most common is that they want financial freedom.

Of course making money is the main objective but why MLM?
     -Money may be the initial objective but based on my experience, money alone won't make you stay on any business. You have to believe and like the product or service.

Is MLM the only thing which comes to mind when one is desperately looking for a source of income?
     -Businesses that utilizes MLM system is like a franchise. They lay down all necessary steps and guidance in order for you to suceed(provided that they are legit).

Is there any guarantee that this business will work for you?
     -there is NO guarantee in ANY business. There's actually a statistic(if i remember it correctly) that says 9 out of 10 businesses fail in their first 5years.

Why a particular company? What makes you think this company will take you where you want?
     -On my opinion, again, you have to like the product or service. Other than that, you may want to ask for their track record and scrutinize their system.

While others have tried and failed, what makes you think you are different?
     -My main business is buy and sell of real estate. But I've incorporated another business along side mine because this will help Filipinos get educated in their financial aspect and therefore might make my business prosper. They are a brokering company that educates Filipinos where to invest and how the financial industry works so that they too can use what rich people uses.

For me, it's not only to have financial freedom, but also time freedom. Picture this: drinking San Miguel sitting on the sands of Boracay! :P

Hey Remoh!
You took the exact words out from my mouth.
White sandy beach...ice-cold San Miguel, paradise!!!
The next time you're there, look to your left or right...I could be just beside you ;)
If you already have the means to get you there, my heartiest congratulations. If not yet, I may be able to help.

I only join MLM businesses that are Internet-based. There are a lot of reasons why, and one of them is, the income potential is bigger since you'll be marketing in the world wide web which is a wide wild world! =)

True, the internet does has the kind of leverage you've mentioned. Moreover, there is virtually no personal interaction at all. Effective interpersonal communication skills at business level can be pretty demanding...
If I may add, your success is solely dependent on the effectiveness of the system and not on from your contributions.

People join mlm primarily because of the income. In the book "The Business School" Robert Kiyosaki discusses 11 core values that are important for one to consider in deciding whether or not to be part of the mlm industry.

What are on networkers mind when they join an MLM business?
  =I joined Network Marketing because I saw a big potential to leverage earning from other people' s effort, not only having an active or passive source of income but having that true "residual income".  My goal is not only to build a Network Marketing business here in the Philippines but in other countries as well.

Of course making money is the main objective but why MLM?
=Well, there are other options to make money like franchises, retail business, manufacturing, online marketing (latest), but if you do not have deep pockets for resources to build your own Mulit-Million dollar business, MLM is the best option for you because it is has the potential to become a Multi Million dollar business, if built the right way!

Is MLM the only thing which comes to mind when one is desperately looking for a source of income?
=Like I said there is, there are other options.  But if you want an "income stream" that has the potential to grow fast and that is stable... then venture in Network Marketing.

Is there any guarantee that this business will work for you?
+like any other type of business, there are risks.  Definitely not a guarantee that you will be successful. There is always the 90-10 rule. 90% of businesses fail before they reach two years.  Same principle apply in Network Marketing!

Why a particular company? What makes you think this company will take you where you want?
=I look for a company that are industry creators.  The ones that introduces a new product with a large market.  One that is capable to be present in different countries.  My dream is to build a group in different countries, so I want a company that will sustain my growth in the business!

While others have tried and failed, what makes you think you are different?
=Everyone has their own potential, and can be successful in Network Marketing.  That is the beauty of this business... it is not the character of the person that determines who will be successful, but their efforts, motivation and knowledge doing this business.  It is an equal level playing field!
  If you know WHY you are doing the business, and constantly are learning HOW to do the business, and if you are focus and consistent.  Then mos likely you will achieve great success in this business!

**I would like to encourage those who are seeing the potential in Network Marketing to pursue your dreams and build this business!  Find the company that is right for you, work smart not just hard, and have the motivation that will keep you doing this everyday!  Be committed not to the company or your upline... but to yourself and your dreams! 

Good luck and Happy building!

,,,, there is no other answer to this thread, "money".
No one will join an MLM to gain friends as first choice,
or to travel as first choice. It is always money.

Money could be the main reason but it would be wise to consider management, track record and products. There are MLM out there that give big commission but might give you headaches or poor products. Better check if your product can really help your customer. After all, business is all about service to customers.
