I created my own business. It’s a limited corporation in that if something goes wrong, it’s the business, not me, that’s responsible. My assets are not at risk, but in most MLMs, they insist on members spending more and more money on training and on products. That means the members keep spending more and more money.
While it’s possible to say that’s not required, the truth is that it is what happens in over 90% of the cases.
You are right, though, that you have to establish boundaries and set timings so you can see if you should continue or not.
As for resting, there has never been proof that you can rest and we have one member that managed an MLM business and was doing quite well and she’ll be glad to tell you that once it’s built, you can’t rest. You have to help others recruit and build the business. I’m sure you don’t want to believe me and would rather just call me a loser so you can ignore me, so I’ll just say I’m sorry you believe this and if you had an advanced degree and 10 years of management experience instead of being inexperienced and a student without a real world background, you’d see just how unrealistic this is.
Most MLMs will not allow you to advertise your product at all.
As for saying you’re the best, that’s not always the case. I have a portable DVD player sitting 1 foot from my arm as I type this. I didn’t buy it because it’s the best. I bought it because it was the one that most suited my needs. You’ve completely overlooked niche marketing.
I did a search and found the web page for whatever Simon Stepsys is. It’s a crappy web page that starts talking to you without a way to shut off the sound and it wouldn’t let me close the window asking for my email address. It says “I’m a high pressure used car salesman,” from the start.
Although I do wonder if you’re thinking of joining it or are in it and seeing if you can get some of us to go in with you. You’re not already in this organization, are you?
