Fall in love with Network Marketing

These days, there’s no denying that millions of people are involved in network marketing. Direct Sales Industry Statistics show that over “60 million sales consultants worldwide” contribute to “over $114 billion in sales” which is very reassuring! Currently, it could be that you’re a stay-at-home parent looking for an extra source of income. Maybe you’re working full time in a job that’s a means to an end or perhaps you’re a recent grad and spending the rest of your life working for someone else is the most demoralizing thought ever. The truth is that your life is what you make of it. Or, as American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

Seize the Day

By choosing a career in network marketing, you are one step closer to living a life filled with opportunity, potential, freedom, and rewards as you build your own independent business, create personal happiness, and live a better life. Attracting people from all walks of life, Nerium International — an award-winning, age-fighting skincare and wellness solutions company— offer Brand Partners many of these opportunities. The best part is that you don’t have to have a specific background, education level, or geographic location to join the team. We welcome what you can bring to the table. That future can be yours when you join the right network marketing company.

Whether you’re looking for a side gig or a complete career change, Nerium is worth looking into. Until then, let’s discuss the three main motivators why men and women of all ages are turning away from 9-to-5 jobs and toward fulfilling careers in network marketing.

Main Motivator for the Stay-at-Home Parent

As a woman, mother, and executive, I’ve experienced similar issues other ambitious professionals are dealing with daily. Here’s one: I want to be a great parent and attend every single soccer game, school recital, and parent/teacher conference but I’m also serious about my career. I want to be successful doing both. Network marketing helps me make it all work.

Luckily, the business world is radically changing. More than ever before, stay-at-home parents are presented with opportunities to work when and where they want. Since joining Nerium, I don’t have to prioritize either kids OR career. My flexible schedule allows me to physically be where my kids need me without missing a beat in my career. If I have a phone and internet, I’m good to go!

One thing to keep in mind: not all network marketing companies are created equally. For example, unlike some other direct sales companies, Nerium doesn’t require monthly sales quotas! Work as much or as little as you want for success on your terms.

Main Motivator for the Non-Traditional Person

For me, personally, thriving in a corporate environment would be extremely difficult (and very unlikely!). Don’t misunderstand, there’s nothing wrong with making the choice to commit to a more traditional job and business structure. In my 20s, my husband (Co-Founder and Chief Field Officer Mark Smith) and I were just another ordinary couple living ordinary lives. When we discovered a way to independently build a business around our priorities and our lifestyle, we knew that the sky was the limit!

That’s right, network marketing allows you to build a career around your life and not the other way around! This means how you spend your time, when and where you work, and how much you earn are entirely up to you. It’s a riskier decision than choosing a more traditional career path, but in the words of American astronaut Neil Armstrong, “There can be no great accomplishment without risk.” 

Main Motivator for the Millennial

With a new generation comes a new way of thinking! Millennials (age 15 to 35 or so) prove this point. While Baby Boomers (age 50 and older) were complacent working for the same company until retirement, millennials have no problem picking up and moving on to a job that suits their lifestyle. Nerium Founder and CEO Jeff Olson always says that happiness is a precursor to success and not the other way around. Millennials get this point. These young entrepreneurs are technologically connected and place a high value on convenience, recognition, and community – values that align with opportunities a career in direct sales, and specifically Nerium International, present.

You see, Nerium is committed to positively impacting as many lives as possible whether it’s through our award-winning product line, the financial opportunities we offer, or the charities we support. The future is with Nerium. Are you in?
