  • Maybe a Network Marketing business is a better solution  Becoming your own boss and building your own business has been a way for gay entrepreneurs to earn a good living and live their own lifestyle  But starting out on your own can be stressful, take an incredible amount of initiative and effort, and often requires a significant investment  One good opportunity we have discovered is to build a Direct Selling Business

  • What is Multi- level Marketing?  Multi-level Marketing is the way that individuals sell directly to other individuals – without a retail store location  Multi-level Marketers can sell to their friends, family, and other people they know  They can also advertise to meet new people who might be interested in the products and services  Some Multi-level Marketers purchase the products and resell them to their customers and even deliver them  More common now is Multi-level Marketing on the internet where customers order products online and they are shipped directly to the customer
  • 1.You can be your own boss  There are many reasons to become your own boss  You will have flexibility in your time and schedule  No one else will be deciding on the best use of your time  And you will have the opportunity to truly enjoy your work because it is with a company you have chosen
  • 2.You can select your business partners  When you decide to join a network marketing company and start building your business you will be able to select the people you will be working with on a daily basis  There is no boss or company to tell you who your co-workers will be  How often does that happen in corporate America?
  • 3.You get a choice in your customers  Having a choice in your customers does not mean that you will exclude anyone  That isn’t the right way to run a business or become successful  In addition to having a choice in your business partners, you will also be able to have a say in who your customers are  You can promote your products and services so why not select people you like to see every day?
  • 4.You can support a product or service you can believe in  We do not always have the opportunity to choose an occupation in an industry that we truly like  We take a job for a lot of different reasons  But if you are starting your own Network Marketing business you have a wide variety to choose from – so why not pick one where you like using the products and services?  And you will also have the chance to select a company that recognizes and supports your community
  • 5.You have the opportunity to promote products most in demandin the LGBT community  The LGBT community is no different than any other in the needs and wants of its members  But there are many products that can relate to the gay community more than others  Healthy nutrition and vitamins  Anti-aging  Weight loss programs  Green living  And many more  By choosing a direct selling opportunity that matches with your community will increase the chances of success
  • 6.You can be rewarded based on your efforts  MLM programs typically provide you with significant income potential  But this is based on the program you select and more importantly the amount of work you are willing to do  Most programs have multiple ways to generate income  And importantly you will be recognized for your achievements
  • 7.You can work in a supportive industry that values individual contribution  Select the right program and instead of working for someone else, being constrained by the existing structure, you will be part of an organization that recognizes individuals based on contribution – not on who they are  Rarely do people turn down the opportunity to work in a field where their compensation is based on their efforts  This is one of the most attractive features of a MLM business
  • 8.You don’t need a large initial investment to join  Network marketing doesn’t require a large initial investment  It is typical to spend just a few hundred dollars at most to start out  If they are asking for more – and there is not an initial supply of product for the investment – find a better program  Compared to many other small business opportunities this is a good way to try things out to see if this industry is for you
  • 9.You can receive the training you need  A network marketing business will provide you with the training you need  On how the program works  On the products and services you will be promoting  And importantly on how to become successful  They are going to be looking for entrepreneurs like yourself who are always interested in learning more
  • 10.You can build a ‘family’ within an existing organization  As you build your successful business, you are finding other like- minded individuals who are interested in the same things  If you are successful this will be ‘family’ business in that everyone likes what they are doing  How often does that happen in Corporate America?  And you will be doing it within a proven structure that has already be tried and tested over time You will be in business for yourself – but not by yourself
  • Is a MLM business right for everyone?  No business is just right for everyone  But with Network Marketing there is the opportunity to build a business the way that you want within an existing organization  That level of freedom can be appealing to people in the LGBT community as well as for anyone interested in creating their own business
