You are well educated.

Spending 3 or more years getting a degree is no joke. 

The accolades behind your name give you a cushy job that brings in a steady pay cheque. 

But you want more.

You think that life is more than just sitting in a cubicle trying to climb the corporate ladder.

There’s so much more than trying to survive the dog-eat-dog corporate world. 

Then you hear about network marketing.

A light bulb clicks in your head.

Here’s your chance to truly impact the world.

Start With Yourself

Network marketing creates opportunities for personal development.

I have been in this business for more than a decade, maybe longer and it has been one of the most positive and uplifting experiences of my life.

Sure, I am a three time degree holder and worked in the corporate world for twenty years as an engineer. However, I find greater fulfillment in how I’ve developed as an entrepreneur through network and affiliate marketing. 

Your network marketing business can only grow if you take the time to introspect and truly develop yourself. What can you do to impact more lives? How can you reach more people and improve sales? What are the fears holding you back that you need to overcome?

Impact Others

Network marketing is more than just selling products. It’s about changing people’s lives. You’re creating a business to generate income. However, you’re also showing your customers how the products you sell can transform their lives. 

I’ve been a Mary Kay consultant for several years.. It’s more than selling lipstick and foundation. Instead, I get to help my customers learn how to love their natural beauty and only view the Mary Kay makeup as a way to enhance their already gorgeous features. I want my customers to love the skin they’re in.

Final Words

Why on earth would a degree holder become a network marketer? Two reasons:

  1. Personal development
  2. Impacting the lives of others

Few corporate entities allow trained graduates to experience both benefits.  So, don’t question your PHD friend who becomes a network marketer.

Also, don’t let your degree prevent you from stepping into the world of network marketing. The benefits are worthwhile.
