Two years ago I started a network marketing business without even really knowing what I was getting myself in to. I had been a licensed CPA for nearly ten years at the time and while I was a natural networker, sales wasn’t necessarily what I saw myself doing. I had just started my accounting practice about six months prior though and cash flow was tight. This required relatively no capital for me to start and was a fast way for me to bring in some cash while my brick and mortar business grew. I was already deeply in love with the company’s products and using them all myself, so it was a natural transition for me to share the same way we all recommend restaurants and movies to our friends and family, but for the most part I had no idea what I was doing. I learned as I went.
What I discovered along the way was a couple important things. The first being that network marketing has by far the most incredible leadership and development training in the world at the lowest price. I saw Tony Robbins speak not ten feet away from me for $249. In all my years of accounting, I had also not seen another industry create so many self-made millionaires. The short version of the story is I created a five figure residual income in less than two years which afforded me the cash flow flexibility to make a lot of decisions in my brick and mortar business that I would not have had the luxury of otherwise.
I have seen the power of residual income first hand for not only my family, but for families all around me presented with an opportunity for more.
If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working for it.
