Did you know that as a network marketer you can create a corporation for your business? Just because you are representing another company doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate yourself.
Why should you incorporate your business?
1. Protect Yourself from Liability
This is the number one reason to incorporate your business. If you value your personal assets, you need to incorporate. Without incorporating, business creditors can use your personal residence and personal bank accounts to satisfy business debts or lawsuits against the business. The reason business creditors cannot reach your personal assets when incorporated is because an incorporated business and its owners are separate entities. Continue reading
Most of us are probably guilty of doing this when we started so don’t feel bad if you are doing this now. So here is the typical scenario: When you finished signing up with your new MLM business, you were very excited to tell everyone so you proceeded to give the “Quickie Presentation” about your company’s products and compensation plan over the phone or even in person. You probably didn’t mean to; but you just wanted to give your prospect all the information at once. When they rejected you, you couldn’t understand why and to add to it, you took it personally. Now place yourself in your prospect’s shoes. How would you feel if someone did that to you? I’m going to guess, not so great.
Anybody inquiring about network marketing, here are the top 5 questions:
1. Do I need to be a salesperson to do this?
Not at all. Some of the most successful network marketers were teachers, doctors, engineers, clerks, and others. If you do network marketing correctly, you are not selling, but rather sharing the company with others. If you would like to know how not to sell click here: Prospect Professionally
2. Can I actually make money at network marketing?
Like any other business venture, some will make money, some won’t. It all depends on how much time and effort you put into it. The key to doing well in network marketing is finding a successful mentor that has a very easy duplicable system whether it is online or offline or both. Continue reading
People don’t particularly care for salespeople. They love to buy but hate to be sold.
When you are a trusted advisor you have a different mentality – thinking about how you can help the other person instead of yourself. You don’t pressure people into something they don’t want to do and people can sense that. Continue reading

I just read somewhere that you can’t build a relationship online. I definitely have a different opinion on this.
Of course you can build a relationship online. Think of all those dating sites like eharmony.com or plentyoffish.com, not to mention chat rooms and ads online. The advantage to using the internet for finding your soul mate is the amount of people using the internet. So instead of finding your mate in a big city of 1 million people, you are exposing yourself to hundreds of millions of people thereby increasing your odds of finding that right person. The internet also makes it easier to find people with common interests – meetup.com for example. People actually get married from these sites. I know of this first hand and you can ask me about it.
The majority of people who don’t join all have the same reason – “I just don’t think that it will work for me.” Why not?
Time – For people who say they don’t have the time because they’re working 60+ hours a week need this the most. What they need to realize is this is like a part-time job but its better because they can earn an income that can surpass their full-time job freeing up more time to spend with loved ones and other interests. They just need to prioritize their time and to make a full commitment to succeeding. Continue reading
