What does the Forbes magazine have to say about network marketing? How does that affect you and success. Listen, I just went through some pretty interesting information and I thought I should just share with you.
Generally speaking, let’s just know for a fact that network marketing is a valuable and a legit business model in the United States of America, in all developed countries and in many hundreds of countries around the world.
Clearly, the whole business model is legit like any other opportunity or businesses out there. Are there people that may be dubious or do wrong things to try to get you into deals and then end up robbing you out of your money? Absolutely.
That will happen just like in any kind of industry where you have human beings involved. Sorry to say it like that, but there’s always somebody with too much greed and they will always pollute the rest sadly.

Again, what does Forbes have to say about network marketing?
On forbes.com, I noticed a guy talking specifically about “When is the right time to quit your job when involved in network marketing?”
SO I found a quote on there that say,
“It’s supposedly an opportunity for you to ditch your 9 to 5 job, fire you boss, and work for yourself, and then just sail on into the evergreen Neverland of bliss.”
Does it work like that?
It doesn’t and I hate to be the one to bring you that kind of news that it doesn’t. But I have some perspective that will help you make a decision as you move forward.
The specific question that was posed by Forbes magazine is…
“When is the right time to quit your job? Should you quit right now to pursue your network marketing and give up full-time even if you don’t have a full-time income yet? Or should you wait? When is the right time?”
These guys were giving advice on when is the right time to quit as mere writers. I have to disagree with a lot of the things they were saying.
Some said “wait until you replace your income.” Some people said, “Wait until you replace half of it.” People were trying to put numbers on the decision.
The news flash I have for you on this particular episode is this. No one can truly tell anyone when to quit. Not the successful ones. Just like [the last episode], which you should make sure you listen to the last episode.
It’s about the [best network marketing opportunity]. There’s obviously some people that would tell you that they have the best network marketing opportunities if you join and I give some pretty interesting insight on the last episode.
Forbes writers’ advice on when the right time to quit your job when involved network marketing is just that. An Advice… But more like an opinion.
Every single one of the most successful network marketing people that I know personally did not have a job when they started with the business.
In fact, there’s a lot of people in network marketing that are successful today and their background, somehow, some way, happens to be real estate, Either they were into real estate investing, Realtor or some type of existing entrepreneur.
They are people that already know from a long time ago that a job is not for them. 9 to 5 gigs was just never their thing. They would rather work around the clock.
If you are coming from a daily job or 9-5 gig, fear will probably creep in now. However, note that people prove the odds wrong every now and then.
I just wanted to make you aware of the mindset required for success in network marketing. There is a lot not so rational about it as Forbes want you to believe. Faith is required.
To be clear, as entrepreneurs, what we do is work around the clock. We don’t have a 9 to 5, it’s not an 11 to 2, it’s not a part-time, it’s a lifetime. That’s just the way it works.
Does that mean if you don’t have that kind of background that you can’t be in network marketing? No, that’s too far from the truth. There are way too many people that were 9 to 5 professionals and doing very well
Many ended up being able to quit their job and come into the world of entrepreneurship. They are absolutely all over the place,
But I’m telling you that a whole lot of people that I know personally that are doing extremely well came from some type of business background.
They were already go-getters, they were already self-motivators. They motivated themselves to create results and create their own income and they never had to depend on a paycheck from another person’s company.
That tells you something that I want you to pay attention to.
When is the right time to quit your job? According to Forbes, and what a lot of people are saying is, “Just wait. Wait until the right time.” Everybody’s saying something, but I found it interesting that none of them are actually entrepreneurs.
… it’s just writers contributing articles to Forbes.
My personal experience is this:
I used to work at FedEx. I worked at FedEx for seven years, but I was a student. I was working part-time. I worked between 6 and 10 o’clock in the morning, and I knew that a day job was just not for me.
I tried the full time thing one time. There was one semester, I was in school and I needed some money. I said to myself, “You know, let me go full-time,” which was driving a truck on the road and delivery in New Brunswick.
“Let me go full-time and let me make some money. I’ll go part-time in school for the semester.” That was actually the wrong move. I flunked all my grades and messed up my grades that semester. I couldn’t focus in school.
I worked from 2pm until 10pm at night; there would be no time to study. I was tired of course, I would try to study in the morning before class and around class and it just didn’t work. I had to tell my manager at FedEx,
“Listen, I need to go back part-time.”
Obviously working full time wasn’t my dream. It felt at that time that I was going to work for the rest of my life. That’s how some people get stuck in the corporate world.
They keep working. They really hope to get out at some point, but that day never comes. Sometimes you have to make a drastic move. That drastic move can be very spiritual in nature.
So putting logic around it and saying, “This is the exact right time, that fits all, to quit,” is just not realistic. It doesn’t work like that.
If you’re the kind of person that you would like that kind of information and you want to use that as a guide, absolutely use it.
I’m just letting you know what that history says, most people who are very entrepreneurial have had to make a lot of moves with faith. Like completely with faith.”
Literally, I wouldn’t know what’s going to happen a lot of time. But I had enough belief in myself that I was going to make it happen and that’s faith.
That’s my tip for you. Never mind what Forbes says. As a matter of fact, never mind what I say. Your journey is your journey, and it’s going to be unique to you.
There’s going to be a lot of times that you’re going to require faith to move onto the next level. For example, if I tell you to get started with that inner circle for a dollar, even though it’s a dollar, you still needed require faith.
You have to believe in yourself that no matter what that move is, you’re going to learn from the process and it’s going to move you forward regardless of what that particular move does in isolation.
Some crazy, inter-twisted insight right? But I just hope that get it. You need faith. At what point do you quit?
I would definitely suggest to make sure that you don’t put your family in harm’s way by shutting down your income randomly. I would say balance that out with what your particular unique faith feels like.
If you have a certain level of faith and your instinct says take massive action, you can change your life in 30 days – 60 days, and you can absolutely replace your income and even multiply it by twice. That can happen.
It depends on so many factors. Influence, how much of an action-taker you are, and so many other things. Forbes writers knows nothing about your own unique network marketing journey. No one does.
