Okay Mom’s let’s talk about MLM’s (Multi-Level Marketing). I am sure as a single mom you get hit up on a regular basis to participate in these ventures. I want to talk a bit about the reality and engagement for some of them out there.
Like me, I am sure some of your friends and family members have talked to you about the new “money maker” in their lives. I’ve investigated a bunch of them myself and here’s what I have to interject:
MLM’s can make you money. Now, i know… you’re thinking “Ugg, I’ve tried it and it doesn’t work”. I’m going to share with you the MLM’s I have participated in and my experience.
Pre-Paid Legal Services -
This seamed like a really great opportunity for me. I mean the concept is remarkable. You as a member get free Legal Services and advise. I actually signed a few people up and used the service myself on several occasions. I even signed up my parents and they used it for their benefit on small legal issues.
Okay, the downside… It takes an ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF TIME. And don’t let anyone tell you differently… this is the reality of ALL MLM’s. It also takes a bit of money to get started.
So, honestly as a Single Mom, how on earth can I participate in an MLM without taking up all my time? When I was doing Pre-Paid Legal I was a Single 30 something WITHOUT CHILD. So how on earth am I supposed to do it now?
Arbone makes probably the BEST skin care in the world. I can honestly say this because I would get compliments on a daily basis. A friend of mine signed me up just after giving birth. I haven’t really shared my after-birth experience with you yet, but let me just say…HORRIFIC!!! That story is for later. I had EXTREME POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION. I could barely get out of bed. And as a new SINGLE MOM, that was really hard.
My friend thought it would be great for me to “get out there” and sell beauty products…RIGHT…
I think, had I been in a better mindset, it may have been very profitable for me. And again, this took an enormous amount of time and energy, which I didn’t have any of. I guess, my advise would be…Don’t engage in any type of high energy sales-MLM-face to face networking thing unless you are emotionally stable. People will see right through you.
Here I am now, in Northern Idaho and a good friend of mine turned me onto a new MLM. However, this time I am in a better emotional space and this is the most important part…I am at the top of the food chain. This new MLM is just that…NEW. It hasn’t even launched yet. It’s a membership based MLM with tons of benefits. The best part is the compensation plan. My friend Jeff Breakey is a career MLM specialist. He is one of the forefront advisors for MLM’s. There are very few of these guys on the planet. And Jeff just happens to be a close friend.
