Tweamster's Blog

Hello world! | April 8, 2010

Allright! Here it is. My first blog post. How exciting! Home business utopia.

My purpose with these blogs is to educate, enlighten and hopefully, amuse you occasionally as well. In the years that I’ve worked in and studied the network marketing industry, I have come to realize that most people look at the hoopla and the propaganda of a business opportunity rather than at the cold hard facts.

If you were going to go buy a running business, would you take the owner’s word on it that the business was profitable? Or would you ask to see a financial statement and the last three years of tax returns plus their business plan and marketing strategy?

If you were buying a fast food franchise, would you look at the fact that their top franchisee made $5 million last year? Or would you want to see how long it took them to get to that level and what they did to get there? And what background they had that made them successful in this franchise?

When looking at the network marketing business, the cold hard facts tend to get overlooked because the entry price or start up fees are so low. An attitude of “let’s give this a shot, what have I got to lose” prevails, instead of let’s look at this as a business and what is it going to take for me to succeed.

I want to help you look at the rest of the story and increase your odds of success in what I think is an awesome home based business model, network marketing.

Why did the chicken cross the road?  To find a better comp plan. (Okay, not that great, but they’ll get better I promise.)

  1. Hi Alan,

    This is a nice start–has a front porch/homey sort of feel to it and your joke at the end is actually a good chuckle…and a point from which to jump off to your next entry or series of entries.

  2. Very cool Alan. You’re way ahead of me on the learning curve for this but it’s something I’m looking at doing also — a bit down the line. I’ll probably want to “pick your brain” regarding what you’ve learned, if you don’t mind. Thanks!

  3. Hey Alan,

    Exactly right, it’s a business. If it’s not treated like one it won’t pay like one.

    I let people know up front that if they want to make money like a hobby, then by all means treat it like a hobby. But if they want to make real money, treat it like a real business.

    Great stuff!
    Susanna
