    I must also commend you on being blunt and explaining realistic expectations. Too many network marketers give prospects an impression that within a short time they can own a Ferrari and a vacation home in the Caribbean. Odds are, the person telling them that owns a Yugo and a home that is valued at $100,000 to which they still owe $70,000. It is high time that network marketers are straight with prospects. Instead of millions, just explain that you can show them how to make an extra $500 per month. Using the $millions hype is giving MLM a bad name. It needs to stop and those who are doing it.

    The part you said about driving around and seeing businesses closed down. Here in Puerto Rico, that is a major thing. It seems like approximately every other business is closed. We are blessed to have a business that does not take a huge investment, but wait…it does take a huge investment. Maybe not money, but ourselves. If we don’t invest ourselves fully into the business, we will be just like the buildings we see that are closed down.

    Very good post Chuck. Thanks.

    More often than not, people’s expectations and their work ethic don’t equate when they come into the network marketing industry. They want to earn large profits, they want to build successful legs, but they don’t want to put in that initial work that is going to get them to that point. Or they don’t want to put in the work for the period of time it generally takes for network marketers to start really earning. We have to be realistic as leaders so as not to mislead, but people also have to let go of their “something for nothing” mentality in order for this to work.
