''smart circle pyramid scheme"
Are you down on your luck as you just exited the trenches of the giant octopus called Multi-level Marketing with NO education, NO experience, and NO money... Plus nothing to show for all the days of LABOR trickling up the Octopus. Speaking from my own experience, you are at the first level of the game! Don't worry though, because this is where we all start...
And towards the end, I'll share with you a video that changed my life completely. Yes, it's time to brace yourself if you're looking down by now, probably wondering what it could have been like if you just kept at it little more. Maybe you were about to be promoted from Team Leader to Owner/Manager. You spent months or weeks calling for leads? We are here to tell you what could be your next moves, not as a gimmick but to guide you, my friend! Make money moves~
It is time to note the difference between a psychopath and a psychotic.
Let's get started with it, yes? What do I mean by working for a "psycho", well according to one poster on Urban Dictionary: A person with an antisocial personality disorder, manifested in aggressive, perverted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse. Also, psychopathsseem to appear normal. You would probably never guess there was something wrong with them.
Breaking down your 'Job'
If you are the type of person to join a multi-level marketing program, most likely you're also determined to be a part of something bigger. And no, I'm not going to give you generic advise like "never give up" which isn't bad advice, tbh but it's already on your radar. What you need to do is create and leverage a system that allows YOU to be in charge, be the boss!
One of my absolute favorite parts about online businesses is that the use of the internet connects my fellow humans in another part of the world, so for example, with this website I paid Weebly for a Pro Plan, and now I'm able to reach people all over different parts of the world like Australia and Canada. You could be reading my blog at 3 AM or 12 PM, it doesn't even matter because the internet is global and always up 24/7. This is totally different from building your business through multi-level marketing, which sometimes can be very shady.
More importantly, if you learn a thing or two about passive income, you would know that the internet is key. I won't go into detail in this blog post because there are already numerous of high quality, versatile resources on this subject you will find elsewhere but it does mean introducing you to a possibility other than working for that direct sales cult. Also, being the boss of an online business might sound like it would take years to see results but it's more so about your attitude and mindset. This means that you can outsource the work you don't want to do. It also means you're in control of your own financial life so you won't have to rely on the higher ups to feed yourself. Definitely feels good to be in charge!
Quick 'Resource' Guide
We aim to provide the best entrepreneurial information possible and in doing so I'll often mention and recommend products. Some, but not all, of the business services with products on the site may pay us a referral fee or commission when you buy certain products. This compensation makes it possible for me to continue providing you the best blog posts possible.
For example, we are a participant in the Fiver Affiliates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Fiverr.com. But you know what? I myself actually use and bought these products before, so don't think we're here to just chase money. #1 Rule of Business = Focus on generating value.
Control your Emotions
What you have to understand is that, unless you're up to recognize different income types and actually pursue these wealth-forming habits to reality, you will seldom keep working these jobs like being a door-to-door salesperson or annoying people at Costco making someone else's dream come true instead of yours! Unfortunately for those commissioned salespeople at a Sam's Club or whatever, they are just chasing money. But seriously though, there IS another way for you to pursue your passion without also having to starve and gain complete and total control.
You see, when you are in control of your own steering wheel, no one else can knock you off your horse unless you also allow it to happen. So you most likely worked for a Cydcor, Appco, Power Home Remodeling Group, Herbalife, Amway, Smart Circle International LLC, Granton Marketing, Phoenix Marketing subsidiary and now you're probably pissed or looking for some kind of redemption from the tangled web! I completely understand and feel you because YES I did work for a Smart Circle subsidiary myself...
Success is the Best "Revenge"
If you made it this far, you're probably very invested with all puns intended! And yeah all jokes aside; I'm going to just be completely honest with you guys... Unless you understand the Cashflow Quadrant above and you know well the differences between assets and liabilities, you're going to be POOR forever. Don't be that person falling behind.
You get a feeling or idea in your head right? But because you're scared, bitter, or confused to ACT on it right now you FAIL! Maybe you don't think it will work but it does! Most likely, if you worked for these companies as described above, you might have been indoctrinated with typical company mantras such as "working on commission is better than hourly wage" which is still true.
What you can do today though my friend is ALWAYS remember to take action! After getting deceived, it might be hard to believe in yourself or see opportunities available in front of you RIGHT now but your life only gets better. And matter of fact, there's this really great video by a channel called Business Secrets. I feel like most of us ex-"employees" are attracted to Entrepreneurship because of the feeling of control, the striving towards high-goals, and true WEALTH. With that being said, please comment what you're doing now after quitting the 'Biz'.
