One of the greatest things about an MLM home business is the leverage it gives you.
It allows you to leverage a tiny amount of capital (a few hundred dollars to as much as a few thousand) and be able to get access to the resources of multi-million dollar and even billion dollar companies (like customer support, order processing, training manuals & classes, sales tools, and most importantly back office systems).
But you're also able to leverage yourself - your time and your energy - by being able to build a distribution network from which you'll receive overrides, commissions and bonuses above what you're receiving for the work you're doing.
It's like being able to become a Real Estate broker on day one, receive some on-going training and be able to earn-while-you-learn the business, with the ability to bring aboard agents (other independent contractors - they are not your employees thank goodness! Less paperwork, hassle, liability...
) who you don't have to pay yet you receive income from the efforts of what results they bring to your organization (or your brokerage in this case).
Now that's not to say that you simply fill out an application and have a huge MLM home business tomorrow of top producers who are going to make you rich overnight.
No, this is NOT a get rich quick or pyramid scheme.
This takes legitimate work and time to develop.
But over time, as you gather your customers and begin to attract quality people to your MLM home business who in turn go out and do the same, you can start to create an income that can supplement your existing income - perhaps giving you some additional freedoms, reducing some stress in your life and freeing up some of your time.
And in time - if you're consistent and are coachable, meaning you're following the plan - your income will continue to increase and become residual, where the income comes in each month whether you're out building it or sitting on the beach.
