Multi-level marketing ― MLM ― involves buying inventory upfront and then selling those products directly to your network of friends and family. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY INVENTORY WITH GREEN COMPASS. YOU PURCHASE YOUR SITE DOMAIN (THAT THEY MAINTAIN FOR YOU)AND WA-LA… YOUR OWN ONLINE BUSINESS WITHOUT ANY PRODUCT OVERHEAD.
It’s estimated that 73% to 99% of participants ― mostly women ― lose money selling for MLM companies. THE MINIMUM BUY IS IS $49.95 AND IT PROVIDES YOU WITH YOUR WEBSITE AND A FEW MARKETING SLICKS. THEN YOU HAVE A $9.99 MONTLY FEE TO KEEP YOUR SITE UP AND RUNNING… THAT IS CHEAPER THAN THIS BLOG STUFF! IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS YOU CAN DO THAT ON YOUR OWN. IT ISN’T MANDATORY. YOU EASILY LOSE $50 IN A WEEK IF YOU EAT OUT LUNCH AND SPLURGE ON STARBUCKS. AND $10 A MONTH, Y’ALL KNOW YOU SPEND THAT ON SHIT YOU DON’T NEED EVERY SINGLE MONTH.
The small percentage who are successful usually don’t earn money by making a ton of sales, but by amassing a large downline of recruits and taking a cut of their earnings. Pyramid scheme, anyone? CORPORATE, ANYONE? IN ANY SALES ROLE, THE MORE PEOPLE YOU HAVE WORKING WITH YOU AS A TEAM MEMBER, THE MORE REVENUE YOU WILL POTENTIALLY GENERATE… DON’T FORGET, EVERYONE GETTING THEIR SLICE OF HTE PIE BEFORE YOUR NET EARNINGS COME IN.
DON’T FORGET. I WORKED AS AN INSURANCE BROKER FOR 10 YEARS, I KNOW THE DRILL. YOU SEE WHAT YOU BRING IN WHEN YOU CLOSE A SALE. YOU PAY OUT ALL THE PEOPLE AND YOUR TAKE HOME DEFINITELY AIN’T WHAT YOU BROUGHT IN.
If you’re privy to the predatory nature of multi-level marketing, you know not to get involved. But often, huns have a hard time taking no for an answer. MLM companies often pressure sellers to keep at it, even when their friends and family continually decline an invite. If a sale can’t be made, it’s a personal failure (and certainly not due to the questionable products or oversaturated market). And so the sellers push and push, jeopardizing their reputations and personal relationships to make “their business” successful. I THINK I HAVE BEEN AWESOME ABOUT THIS AND HENCE THE REASON I AM NOT MOVING PAST THE BOTTOM OF “PYRAMID” TRIANGLE, LOL.
I TRULY HAVE A PASSION FOR THE HEMP PLANT. MY GOAL AT THE END OF THE DAY IS TO SOAK ALL THE EDUCATIONAL CONTENT, DISBURSE TO THE MASSES – IN HOPES THAT WHEN SOMEONE IS READY TO BEGIN THEIR CBD WELLNESS JOURNEY, I AM THE FIRST PERSON THEY THINK ABOUT. CBD NOT FOR YOU? BE THAT FRIEND THAT WHEN YOU OVERHEAR SOMEONE TALKING ABOUT CBD, YOU DON’T HESITATE AND SAY I GOT A GIRL FOR THAT! YOU SHOULD CHECK HER OUT AT THECANNABOSSMOM.COM 🙂
IT IS THE SILLIEST ANALOGY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON’T KNOW ME, BUT I COMPARE THE CBD WORLD TO ME STARTING OUT IN THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY RIGHT AFTER THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (ACA) PASSED. I WAS JUST COMING OUT OF MY POLITICAL STINT AND KNEW NOTHING ABOUT INSURANCE, BUT BOY DID I LOVE ME SOME POLITICS… AND SOAKING UP ALL THINGS ACA WAS JAM. IT GAVE ME THE STEP UP AGAINST OTHER BROKERS. THE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT GAVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO WALK INTO A ROOM FULL OF C-SUITE EXECUTIVES AND EXPLAIN HOW ACA IS IMPACTING THIER BUSINESS. NOW I GET TO EXPLAIN HOW CBD CAN POSITIVELY IMPACT YOUR HEALTH… AND THAT IS WAY COOLER THAN EXPLAINING TO A CEO THAT ACA COULD POTENTIALLY PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS!
SO CHEERS TO MY CBD CAREER AND WORKING MY WAY UP THAT PYRAMID SCHEME TRIANGLE.
