1- A GLOBAL NEED FOR SUPPLEMENTAL INCOME
As people get to retirement age, most realize they are not prepared. Many have little-to-no savings or investments, and routinely assume that they will just live on Social Security or some other government retirement plan. The problem in relying on this is that no one ever contemplated that MOST people would live into their 80’s or even beyond. An amazing statistic to consider is that if you make it to 25 years of age, your average life expectancy is 85. And this life span will only continue to extend further over time, further exacerbating the problem.
2- A NEED TO BE ACTIVE AND ENGAGED
People are living a lot longer today, and in the future even longer still. Being involved, active, and engaged in something is one of the most important aspects of continuing a life worth living. There is a social connection and sense of belonging when you are a part of a movement that is filled with elements such as positivity, empowerment, personal improvement, and helping other people.
3- A NEED FOR A MORE EFFICIENT BUSINESS MODEL
In the corporate world, people get paid all of the time without producing! That makes network marketing inherently more efficient. Efficient business models will be models that win going forward.
4- THE WORLD IS A NETWORK
The world has literally transformed into the Network Marketing business model and it continues to do so as technology evolves and the internet brings us closer together. Individuals are connected to 3 times as many people today compared to before the advent of the internet and social media. The world has moved to Network Marketers, and for those of us in this industry with the right company, the future is incredibly bright.
5- UNPARALLELED GROWTH POTENTIAL
Network marketing started in the 1930’s in the United States, and since that time only 16 companies have achieved 1 Billion Dollar in annual sales. Over that same time hundreds of thousands of companies have started and failed. Anytime you have a new industry like this, it can be like the Wild West.
The same process that happened in Franchising is happening with Network Marketing. The crazy Wild West days are going away. The 2016 FTC settlements with Herbalife, Vemma and FHTM introduced new federal guidelines and regulations that will become the standard that all Network Marketing companies will be expected to comply with in the future. Companies with ethical management that are willing to comply with these guidelines will become the Subway’s and McDonald’s of the industry. Change is happening, and it is happening now in the Network Marketing industry.
