I know it can sometimes sound spammy to claim that you can make money from home today, doing what comes easy to you. But you really can if you think outside of the box! If you’re needing to make some right-now-money while your network marketing business is getting off the ground, you may be overlooking some areas in your business that you could be leveraging your ability to make money from home.
Desperation is a prospect repellent that many home based business owners are never aware of. When you’re desperate to make money in your business, desperate to sponsor in your business, or desperate to move enough products to be able to pay the bills, your voice has a different sound to it. While having a strong desire to succeed is essential in growing your business, desperation turns people off, even if they don’t sense exactly why they’re turned off. If you’re feeling desperate to make money from home in your network marketing MLM business, they are subconsciously sensing a feeling of being “hunted” with raised suspicion or doubt.
You Probably Started Your Business to Make Money from Home
Think back to when you first got started in your home based business. Sure, you probably wanted to make a difference in the lives of others, but a big reason for getting started was to make money, right? Whether it’s to pay down some debt, to put your kids through college, to help provide for your retirement or to allow you to stay home with your kids, money’s a big factor in the reason “why” for most home based business owners. But in the very beginning of a legitimate home based business, the ability to make money from home is not always there.
It Takes Time to Make Money from Home in A Legitimate Home Based Business
It takes time to build a large organization that is duplicating your efforts. There is always a learning curve, and although there are a few people who hit home run after home run right after they get started in their business, it’s not typical. Most of the people who start, will not reach the top of the pay plan in a couple of months! So for those of us “normal” people, if there is a pressing need to make money from home, right away in our home based business, we can end up feeling (and sounding) desperate to the people we’re sharing our opportunity and products with.
The reason I’m having this on my mind is that I’ve been talking with someone who is dealing with this in a big way. She has been building a home based business alongside a full time job so that she can eventually stay home with her son. She recently lost her job and her business is not at the point yet to be replacing her income, so she’s facing the decision of getting another job, which she doesn’t want to do, because she wants to be home with her son.
In order to take some pressure off of yourself (or to help a teammate with some money pressures) it can be helpful to find ways of making some “right now money” until the residual income starts to flow.
I’m lucky to be part of a company with a hybrid compensation plan that offers both right now money as well as residual income from a team. And, if your company offers the right now money like that, it may be a great way to start, but my company did not always have a preferred client option, so I had to get creative.
Here is a video I recorded to share some of the ideas I’ve used with you. 🙂
