5 Silly Reasons Why You Think Everything Is A Scam (And Why You'll Remain Broke)

I think this topic is WELL overdue. There are people who look upon network marketing as a scam, sham and scheme. They frown their noses upon people who are into this industry by calling network marketers everything from con artists to cult leaders and followers. 

Most people also always label this industry as a "pyramid scheme" or say that all these companies do is "rip people off and take their money" all the while not even knowing what a pyramid scheme really is.

According to Wikipedia this is the definition of a pyramid scheme: 
pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.
These types of schemes have existed for at least a century, some with variations to hide their true nature, and because of this, many people believe that all multilevel marketing plans are also pyramid schemes.
Simply put, a pyramid scheme is when you invest money into something where there is no product or service being exchanged. Now people tend to get this confused with network marketing because they ask themselves why do they have to pay to start working and make money?

The answer to that is the same reason why you spend money to go to a job interview, or purchase a new outfit for a job interview or buy a uniform for a job. It's not only so you can look the part, it shows that you invest in yourself and into your future at that company. The same applies to network marketing and business in general.

People don't realize that it usually takes thousands of dollars to start a business so network marketing actually saves people thousands of dollars and fulfills their dream of being the entrepreneur they've always dreamed of. But most people don't think this way.

The Business Structure of a Corporation VS. The Business Structure of Network Marketing


Now let's apply this same thing to a business structure that most people are employed by. Most people are at the bottom of the corporate structure. They have a manager over them, who has a manger over him, who has a manager over him, who also has a manger, a President, Vice President etc all the way up to the CEO. Now, the CEO makes more money than everyone obviously because it's his or her company. 

Now maybe the President or the VP of the company gets a big cut of the pie, but it won't be as much as the CEO. Now all the people under the President and the VP get only a portion of that pie, while all the people at the bottom (who usually work the hardest) get the crumbs. Well my friends that is what you call a pyramid scheme. 


Now what people confuse as a pyramid scheme is really a legitimate business structure that most people have been working under for centuries and not even aware of it. People are in the 40/40/40 club. (work 40 hours a week, for 40 years, and only get 40% of the money they slaved for.) Which defines an employee, which most people are.

Now on the other hand, if you are apart of a mlm or network marketing company, you start off as the business owner. There is no one over you. All the money you make goes to YOU. Yes you get a cut, a percentage or a commission of whatever product or service you are currently promoting or affiliate with, but it is way more than a regular 9-5er earns on any given day.

You're not being told when to work, when to use the bathroom, or when to eat. You are not being told that you are only worth $10 a hour. As an independent business owner, you define your worth by the effort you put into your business and NOT by what a company tells you you're worth.


5 Silly Reasons Why You Think Everything Is A Scam (And Why You'll Remain Broke)


Goes With The Crowd-Because most people go based on what the majority says instead of doing their due diligence and researching things for themselves.

Ignorance-We live in a world where all the information we could ever want is at our finger tips but most people will not take the time or make the effort to do something that will possibly get them out of the predicament they so desperately seek freedom from. 

Lack of Resources-Some people may not have the resources to research so they just cast it off as something that isn't legit.

Closed Minded-Some people are just not open to things because they haven't been exposed enough to it. 

Fear-Some people are just too afraid to take risks. Some people are afraid to lose what little they have, even if the opportunity to get more in starting them in the face.

These are just a few reasons why people think everything is a scam and obviously why they will remain ignorant or in lack of what could possibly be a great opportunity for them if only they were opened to it. But the great thing about this is that these people wouldn't have to struggle if they sought out people who knew more than they knew about something they were interested in.

Also, if these same people who thought this way sought out a team of open-minded individuals, it would definitely change their perspective and open them up to a whole new way of life. But it first starts with the willingness to change. 

Now you can spend hours upon hours researching legitimate network/affiliate/internet marketing companies and how to make money online, from home or anywhere (but it would take you too long to find anything worth joining) so why not just align yourself with a team of successful, open-minded, goal oriented powerful and positive people who've already taken the liberty into doing the research for you?

Besides, you'll be apart of an AMAZING team that will teach you valuable skills and that will show you legitimate ways to make money. But you've got to be open to it. 


Below you will find some of the benefits of being apart of a great team of like-minded individuals...


*Develop the proper mindset to be successful in business and in life...
*Daily team training and support...
*Daily assignments to take your income from $0-$10k per month..
*Mastermind with some powerful & positive people...

And most importantly be partnered with the top people in the industry who would love to show you how to duplicate their success!
