I know that some people look at network marketing/direct sales, such as what I do, as some kind of a scam. They aren’t.
If you would like a different perspective on it, look at it this way: Many of your favorite stores and restaurants are franchises. This means that the owner of the store, has to pay a (usually yearly, sometimes monthly) fee to the parent company to use their name, and they may also have to give a percentage of overall sales to the parent corporation. In addition to that fee, the owner is also responsible for the building costs (which has to be approved by the parent corporate company), over head costs, employee payroll, etc.
No matter how hard an employee works for a franchise owner, they will still make their set wages, and have their hours set for them.
Now, let’s move on to what I do, I am in Direct Sales. That means that I pay a percentage of each of my sales to my parent company, in this case Younique, in order to have the right to sell their products, and use their name.
However, I don’t have to worry about the cost of preparing the products, the cost of a building, paying employees (unless I choose to hire someone to help me), and my over head is very minimal. That doesn’t even go in to the fact that I can set my own hours, vacations, etc, with my Direct Sales business. My pay is a direct result of my work. If I work harder, I make more money. If I don’t, I make less.
Now, you tell me – which is a scam, in your eyes?
